Vegas Baby!

I am going to be soooooo sick of hearing that phrase - what movie is that from anyway? Actually I'm already sick of hearing it.

I'm headed to a conference in Vegas. 3000 people. I'm teaching a class (no not on blogging but keywords, metatags and internet advertising and the trademark implications thereof - I'm actually excited in a lawgeek kind of way....)

And there will be lots of "client development" aka parties. Lots of parties. No I will not gamble b/c I hate gambling. But I will be smoozing, and "glad handling" and "grin & greet"-ing. Some of it is fun. Most of it exhausting. oh and I have to fit in my billable time, too and get my pretrial motions filed by Monday afternoon.

Sooooo I won't be blogging for a while. And when I get back on Wednesday for my Ass Update you can bet I won't have made much progress on slimming down....

Have a safe and fun trip! And, don't forget the other phrase I can't stand anymore - "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!" Ugh!

if you do gamble, just know that the machines closest to the front doors are the "loosest." it's a way to lure people inside.

(my cousins live in Vegas. so i've had to go there over time to visit.)

Have fun! I actually wish I could hear your talk. It'd be cool to see what's changed since my "Law of Cyberspace" class waaay back in 2000.

I knew you were a lawyer, but didn't know what area. Do you offer consultations? ;) Have a great time in Las Vegas!!! Knock 'em dead!

I hope you had fun. I'm not a Vegas fan myself--although some of there shows are worth the trip.

I don't like to gamble and the cigarette smoke drives me nuts. I'm so spoiled by living in San Diego--I can literally go weeks without seeing or smelling smoke unless I walk by the smoking area at school (which I really try to avoid).

The "Vegas baby" can be traced to a whole slew of movies, but I do remember it being said countless times by Joey on Friends.

Vegas sucks in a very particular way...sucks the life out of you. I used to go to Comdex and CES and other outrageously huge tech shows and I always felt totally drained of humanity by the time I escaped. My sage advice? Drink lots of water!
