Aloha! Started off our last day in Vegas with brunch over at the Veranda in the Four Seasons, followed by a stop at Trader Joe’s to buy stuff for the guys at home. I ended up buying a bunch of chocolate, so I have to be careful how I pack it since I don’t want the stuff to melt in my luggage. We’re also going to do some shopping tomorrow since Carla & I don’t fly out till later in the day. Then as soon as I get back to Hawai’i, I have to start packing for Japan … what an insane schedule!
Well, our poor U.H. Warriors got their butts kicked last night, 40-20, by the UNLV Rebels. UNLV was a 20-point underdog but totally dominated the over-confident Warriors. I was glad I didn’t go to the stadium and ended up staying back at the casino’s sports bar to watch the massacre with some of the guys. I don’t know what happened to the team .. they really looked awful!
The desert air here in Vegas is so dry. I have to use a lot of moisturizing lotion to keep my skin from turning into leather and I also have to apply a lot of lip balm to keep my lips from getting chapped. My lips are the most sensitive – they chap and blister so easily that it starts even before the plane lands in Vegas! Oh well, that’s how it goes …
