Vegas Trip: Chippendales


Jaymes & James from The Amazing Race was the only reason I wanted to see Chippendales. Thursday we had originally planned on seeing the show, but Jaymes had tweeted and said he would be in LA. Sad! Friday we hoped he would be back and we freaked out a little when he tweeted that he was flying back. We decided to get the 10:30 tickets so I could a) see Boyz II Men too and b) if he didn’t make it in time for the earlier show we were good.  We freaked out even more when he tweeted ME and said that he would be back in the show that night!

After Boyz II Men we headed to Harrah’s and hoped the Rio shuttle once again and made it to the Chippendales theater just as doors were opening.  No photos were allowed, of course (nudity) but the show was a lot of fun even though I didn’t really think Jaymes and James were in it all that much and there was a drunk girl standing and grinding the chair in front of her all damn night. (After the show her friends were carrying her out and she could barely stand)  Jaymes sings a lot though during the show!

After the show for $20 you can get your photo taken with all the guys and they print it up for you right on the spot! I thanked Jaymes for his tweet and he said no problem and that he was glad I made it to the show.  Then we picked up our photos, I stocked up on merch (of course) and it was time to head back and pack up all my stuff!

Book Review: Can’t Be Arsed

arsedCan’t Be Arsed (Half Arsed Shorter Edition) is a list of 63 things to NOT do before you die.  A play off of the bucket lists and “X amount of things to do before you die”, this book is the opposite with a list of 63 popular items from peoples lists and comical (and sometimes logical) reasons why you shouldn’t want to do them and shouldn’t add them to your bucket list.  Although humorous, there are still a few items in the book I couldn’t be swayed on and are still on my bucket list.  There were also a few items in the book that I had already done – so I guess you can’t change my mind on those items either!

Certainly a quick and amusing read and a cute idea. But I’m still keeping my bucket list.

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
