The View From Las Vegas

You can stop worrying. I made it back from Las Vegas alive. Actually, I've been back in New York for a week. And, somehow, I haven't blogged.

Let me explain myself.

In Las Vegas, I was working on location for a live telecast production. Our entire team worked seven days a week. Twelve hour workdays were the norm. (What is sleep?) Needless to say, I had little time for blogging. I also only had Internet access while in my office. The odds were against me, no matter how compelled I was to preserve my adventures in blog form.

Now that I've had some time to catch up on sleep in "The City That Never Sleeps," I will bring you up to speed on my Vegas work-ation. But, I'm going to use pictures to do it. Lingering exhaustion tends to contort my words into nonsense -- I'll spare you.

Here we go!

There you have it, a picture book of my trip to Las Vegas. Maybe once I have a little more time to reflect on everything I did in Sin City (read: think a complete thought), I will use sentences and punctuation to describe it.

... Or, maybe I won't.

After all, a picture's worth a thousand words. Consider this my Vegas novel.
