What I Learned on My Long Weekend

Minnesota had a long weekend until Tuesday (we call it the "Mental-Health Break" because we are sick bastards). Here is what I learned this weekend:

Don't Go to Vegas During an All-Star Weekend - Particularly when it is the NBA's All-Star Game. It was crazy busy, and the Strip was crawling with . . . "undesirables" . . . and the smell of weed pervaded every nook and cranny. There was a shooting at the casino across the street from me. Oh yeah, and I lost tons of money. Stupid Vegas.

Don't Get Sick When You're Going to Vegas - Particularly when you are planning on staying up all night when you get there.1 I had a little tickle in my throat on Saturday morning before we left, by the time we got back Tuesday evening, I had a full blown Emphezema-style cough which now sounds like I have TB. And I lost tons of money.

These are the life lessons you don't get in law school.

1And particularly when it is the NBA All-Star Weekend and the Strip is crawling with "undesirables" and the smell of weed will be pervading every nook and cranny.

Don't forget that it is also only an optimistic idiot that thinks it would be an awesome idea to get on a late night flight, go to a lone hotel off the strip where you will not only not get to see Prince perform, but be stuck there until 10am with no food, nowhere to sleep, and no escape from the ding ding ding of the slot machines which invariably take all your money as you get increasingly tired and crabby at losing all your money.
