Good News, Bad News

Must be brief - the Baron is squawking at me to get. in. the. cab. now. Here goes:

The Good News:

We've got tickets to watch the Oscars.

The Bad News:
Our seats are a little far from the stage:

I hate our travel concierge. Asshat.

The Bad News:
As well you know, anything that ends in "A-Rama" holds great promise of shock, awe, and no small amount of shiny. One of the uber-kitsch sites I had hoped to explore:

is no longer.

Elvis has indeed left the building.

Permanently.

Wah.

The Good News:
This goldmine?
Still open for business. FABULOUS!!

Starting Monday, I will be sending missives from the road, in between visits to the $2.99 buffet and extremely kitschy lounge acts.

Viva Ya-Know.

Hello, Ms. Baroness! This is my first time here.

Your road trip sounds like a great deal of fun. I'm envious as I will be chained to an office chair all week and could really use some $2.99 buffets.

Speaking of cheap lounge acts, I am a distant relative of Wayne Newton. Yeah way! I'm probably half as excited as you are to know this.

Anyway, I am stopping by to say that I look forward to meeting you, Asthmagirl and I-mom at the Virginia Blogfest in July. It is shaping up to be a really good time, though it may not be as fun as your road trip this week!

Take care and keep in touch. - CBW

AH, you lucky duck!!! Vegas is indeed one of my favorite places to twirl and play. I'm hoping to get there once, twice, maybe even three times this year. That'll be my personal contribution to economic stimulus. Have fun and let me know if you find any must-sees! .... babspeapod

Wait. Vegas? Where's my invitation?

Cormac Brown said...

Wow, this is all of sudden...unless I missed the transitional post.

Dale said...

There's going to be a blog-a-rama though right?

Baroness von Bloggenschtern said...

Countess CBW: Welcome! And thank you for stopping by, or should I say "Danke Schoen"?. Darling.

Danke Schoen.

Countess Babs: According to my handy dandy "What's Happening in Las Vegas" Guide, there is much afoot. But, as I gaze out of my hotel window, I can only see Neimans across the street. Yum.

Countess MPM: Invitation? You don't need no stinking invitation! The door's always open. I'll even let you budge into the buffet line at the Bellagio. That's how I roll.

Count Brown: Did I not mention this earlier? Oops.

I thought it was supposed to a good writing strategy to keep readers on their toes - I can get just a tad predictable - I'm so sad, I'm so void of thought, I'm so blahdee blahdee blah.

So, SURPRISE!!!

I mean really. I SUFFER for my art.

Count Dale: You can Rama-Lama ding dong depend on it!

You went to the Oscars? THE Oscars?! I hate you . . .

Baroness von Bloggenschtern said...

Count Daddy: Read this again, dear.

I'm only about 500 miles away from the Kodak Center. But if I squint....

Don't be hatin'.

Well Read Hostess said...

I am so jealous...I heart vegas. I think you'd have more fun there with ME. Next time leave spouse and business people at home.

All though maybe they'll still pay?

Countess WRH: I KNOW that we would have a grand old time. When we can devise a ploy to travel expense-free with our respective entourages, this will most certainly happen.
