I’m Back…

Well, Vegas was interesting…

I’ll start by saying me and my mum like to explore and find local shops which we can shop forever in, like Payless Shoes and Conways in New York.

Vegas wasnt like that, although we did find a shop called Ross, which we liked.

It was all about the Casino’s which is fine if you like to gamble and i must admit it was quite addictive by the end–i did win my fair share of money off $1 bets :P–but the Casino’s were really interesting to explore, though we didnt go in everyone because their are too many and the Stratosphere was a bit too far away to walk down to the Strip everyday (and sometimes too expensive in cab fares).

We did make it into The Bellagio, New York New York, Treasure Island, The Mirage, Circus Circus, Encore/Wynn (where we got a free club card) and the Stratosphere and all were magical places to explore. The rest we just walked past and I took loads of photos.

We also booked to see a show, Zumanity, which you may have heard of. It’s the sensual side of cirque du soleil. It was fun and i enjoyed it but im so glad i wasnt on the floor and up in the balcony, because they wanted audience participation and, well, it might have been a bit embarrassing…

As far as inspiring me goes, it kinda worked as i started writing one about a girl, Macey, who’s there with her friend, Eric, who she fancies and his friend, Garrett, who she doesnt particuarly like. They’re watching “The Sirens” performance at Treasure Island when she get’s seperated from Eric but still with Garrett and it’s only after the performance when he comes back, a huge silly grin on his face. He’s got a girl’s number and is thinking he’ll get lucky tonight. Macey’s hurt but tries to hide it and when he asks if Garrett can sleep in her room that night, she grudgingly agrees. Anyway, Eric sees more of the girl over their ten day holiday and Macey spends more time with Garrett, they explore, have fun, and just get to know each other better and that’s about as far as my plot for it runs at the minute…

P.S. Ruby did get worked on but im not altogether sure the first story is finished yet…
