Vegas, Baby!

Filed under: Blogging,Living with a disability — by at 7:52 pm on Thursday, September 4, 2008

In ten days, Darrell and I are off to Las Vegas for our belated summer vacation and for BlogWorld ’08. I am so looking forward to seeing my dear (and somewhat goofy) friends Chris Brogan and Liz Strauss again, and many others! Plus, perhaps, learn a thing or two about blogging and social media. There is always something to learn in this field.

I’m also looking forward to a not so steep learning curve in navigating Vegas this time around. I’m the navigator in this duo, and I confess I couldn’t figure out how to get out of the dang airport – not a good sign for the rest of the trip! I didn’t know we had to take a tram to the main terminal area, and the signage sucked and staff was non-existent. Boy, I felt like a dweeb!

This time I know where the closest wheelchair washrooms are, after deplaning; I know the tram trick; I know where the wheelchair registration desk is at the hotel to avoid a line up. (Membership has its privileges!) And, I even know the crazy elevator route at Convention Center’s monorail station. (I’m sure some architect designed it that way merely to confused the disabled!)

This time to Vegas, I’ll look like I’ve been there before!

Kitty Faith playing the camera cord I am, however, feeling guilty for leaving my baby Faith home alone for that long. Hopefully Uncle Bob will be available for kitty-sitting. But, I have a feeling Faith will be up to her own mischief. Stay tuned!

Meanwhile, I have a million things to do before we leave.

If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a chai tea latte. Thanks kindly.

Have a blast!!! Don’t gamble too much and watch your umbrella drink intake. It slurs your speech too much, ya know?

Glenda, I would love to meet you in Vegas. I’ve been following you on Twitter now for a couple of weeks, and I just have to meet the woman behind the Tweets. I would love to get a copy of your book. Will you have copies with you so that I can grab one? Let me know where you will be, and I’ll find you. See you soon!

I was hoping to make it out this year to meet some of you all but I’m not sure that’s going to happen… :-/ That’s ok though, I’m sure you’ll all blog about it and then there’s always next time 🙂

For now, have a great time at the event!!!
(Glad your prepped).
