But It's A Dry Heat  

I think there should be a law that permits you to punch anyone in the face who says "But, it's a dry heat" in regards to 115 degree weather in Vegas. I must've heard it a dozen times, and you know what? I don't care, it's still hot as hell.

Anyway, all back from vacation well rested and much poorer. First off, a hearty huzzah and kudos to Tom and Melissa for their wedding on Saturday, it was just pitch perfect. I won't go into too many details, I'm sure Lushy will have much to say later in the week, but I will say that the priest who did the wedding must've had a direct line to God... an outdoor wedding ceremony in Vegas was saved with the largest, puffiest white cloud ever. The reception was subdued and great, with an excellent speech from Tommy's big brother... plus I got to dance with beautiful women all morning, so that didn't suck.

Vegas sum up: sadly, didn't get to play any poker... just waaaay to busy and sleep deprived by Saturday night. Ended up down due to my stupidity in playing Roulette (for the last time, and this time, I mean it!) plus some really bad slot machine play. Thankfully three-card poker kept me afloat... it's definitely my new favorite table game.

Pennsylvania visit was absolutely perfect. I got to see alot of my family I haven't seen in forever (Grandma, for you, I'm going outta me way to keep this post clean of curses), and while I didn't get a chance to see everybody (sorry Paul and Kamin!) it was great seeing my buds again... I spent most of my time either by the pool drinking and reading, in the pool drinking and reading, watching High-Def poker that I'd seen 5 times before (while drinking), or just drinking at a bar. I swear I drank more in those few days than I have all year. My family rocks.

Hopefully, I'll be able to get around to discussing some interesting specifics of my trip later in the week (plenty of wedding moments to laugh about, in particular my ex and my date getting chummy)... hope y'all are doin' well, I'm just trying to get back into the swing of things... yeah, work sucks.

Glad you had a good time back "home" in Pa! It was great having you and Amanda there!

Sorry to hear you went back to work broke...sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. Can't wait to hear some specifics on Vegas! Wally was bummed...maybe next time!

You know 115F isn't that hot in NV...it's a dry heat you know?!!(hehehe)
