It's getting hot in heerrre....

[ #20302 ]
My buddy of 20 years, Bill Harp, is getting married to Michelle, a woman he met on a cruise ship nearly two years ago and has been dating exclusively ever since.

But, they decided to get married in August. In Los Vegas. When I landed here yesterday, it was over 100 degrees. Ouch.

This morning, I ate at the Burger King embedded inside the casino embedded inside this hotel. (They believe that you shouldn't have to endure this heat either, apparently.) While I was waiting for my Double-Beef Whopper with Cheese (for breakfast), I overheard the assistant manager telling the crew that "Chili would be offered only seasonally, in the winter". I interrupted, "and when would that be? When it gets down to 80 here?" She said "No, it can get as low as 60... in the middle of the night". Wow.

  • Can you drink your water before it evaporate?
  • It's a dry heat! The first time I went to Vegas, I went for 2 weeks in the summer because I was accepted to UNLV. 2 weeks in Vegas, 2 hours on the campus. I walked from the Luxor to Glitter Gulch in 120 degree heat. The trick is to stop in the hotels, sit at a table, get a free drink, then move on.
  • It was 112° here in Phoenix yesterday :-)
  • I went to a friend's wedding in Tucson in May. It was held in a park, in the middle of the day. It was sunny, and at least 100 degrees. Ouch. Yet somehow, we managed to have a pretty good time.
