Been in Las Vegas since Monday morning. I'm sure there are many who like or even love this city, but it makes me feel ill every time I come here...which is once a year for my annual performance review! Let's start with the fact that almost 3 million people live in the middle of the desert. Some love to talk about carbon footprints...well, Las Vegas has to be the #1 city in the world for the largest footprint per capita! What a waste of electricity this city is! To me, it's the single most embarassing city in America. But I guess people from other countries don't agree because I never see as many foreigners as I do in Las Vegas. Guess the gambling bug is a world wide epidemic. Then you have hundreds of illegals handing out these baseball card-like porno advertisements to everyone and anyone. It's hard to explain unless you've been to this hell-hole of a city. And of course there's the hookers....oh man, the hookers! They honestly make me feel sad as they walk around calling any man who looks their way, "Sweetie". I always get sucked in by them because I'm naive. I see a pretty woman/girl look my way and my first thought is always, "Wow, she's checking me out!"...followed by the realization..."Oh, she's a prostitute...." For all those who love this city...I just don't see it. But to each their own I guess. I'm heading out tomorrow morning and when I get home, I'll have to take about 3 showers just to get the scum off me.
