Still Talking About the Weather

It looks like the weather forecasters got it right after all. After my ranting in my entry last Friday that the weather forecast is never accurate anymore, I was proven wrong. With a two day delay, the cold winds did in fact whip through the Las Vegas Valley yesterday. They did not bring the freezing temperatures as predicted, however it was cold enough for us having to turn on the heater.

So I do apologize to all the weather guys and gals out there. But maybe next time, work a little more on the timing of predicted occurrences?

On Friday evening we took our friend Margaret out for dinner. Even though her birthday is not until this Friday, we celebrated this special occasion a little early. We always have a good time chatting and catching up on each others lives. After a scrumptious meal we walked around the “Strip” and by the time we said our good-byes it was already 2 o’clock in the morning. Time flies when you’re having fun.

The “Strip” can be a very educational observance platform on human behavior. Especially on a Friday night or early Saturday morning. It’s interesting to see how people become completely different beasts, given that Las Vegas has the reputation to be one big party town where everyone can just act out. It’s a hell of a place for people watching. Who needs television and those stupid reality shows? It’s all right here...Live and in Living Colors. We love it!

Oh, about that little destructo-porn movie “2012” which I also mentioned in my last entry. It made over $225 million worldwide on its first weekend. Not bad for a gay movie director from Germany. We have yet to see this film. I guess people still love watching another epic destruction of good ol’ Mother Earth. And apparently they are pretty darn good at putting it into practice too.

Below are some impression from a fun-filled Friday evening on the Las Vegas “Strip.” And two pictures from our brunch that George made at home on Sunday morning. Sage breakfast sausage, sautéed onions and tomatoes, and melted pepper jack cheese, all wrapped up in a fluffy omelet. Served with hash browns, toast and freshly brewed strong coffee. Yum!

Are you getting hungry?

Maybe we should open a bed and breakfast yet.

Mmm... a good hearty breakfast I love. I think I'm going to go make myself a spinach/mushroom omelette right now!

So what did you get at Sephora? :-)

Looks like a delightful evening with your friend. And the breakfast looks positively scrumptious! Brad and I would definitely stay at your B & B! Hope you weather has turned warmer!

We didn't buy anything. George and Margaret wanted to get some free hand lotion because it was cool outside and the skin on their hands were getting dry.

Yup, we're classy that way. Especially when it comes to "free" stuff, LOL.

Our B&B is always open for you and Brad. And wouldn't cost you a dime ;)

The nights are getting really frigid but during the day it's alright. It's suppose to get windy and cooler again this coming weekend. We'll keep warm though as we plan on cooking and baking a lot.
