Didn't have the spectacular luck of my fellow vacationers, but had a good time nonetheless!  Ka is still awesome, although I still get twitchy with all the ninjas popping out of the woodwork everywhere.  With bows.  And flaming arrows.  O was more beautiful than I remember, which is nice.  Crazy people hurtling through the air into water - very symbolic.  

The Sugarland/Sara Bareilles concert was AWESOME!  It was mildly funny in that I'm fairly used to going to concerts where I'm the oldest person there, and almost as used to concerts where I'm the youngest person there (don't laugh!), but this one I was pretty much right down the middle, as the audience seemed to range from tweens up to retirees.  The Sugarland portion was one massive singalong, and I was tremendously entertained when one of the numbers in the encore was "Come On Eileen" with Jennifer Nettles and Sara dancing onstage.  Very cool.  Also worth noting is that at least for this tour, Sugarland has the cutest bassist since Hole.  And Kristian Bush is a toon character, and seems to be very amused by life.  I applaud him. 

People watching was great, food was good, and the Desert Eagle in .44 Magnum really is ridiculously huge, but shoots quite nicely.  Jams like a mofo, though - I only had 5 shots and it STILL jammed on the fifth.  Sad.  The Sig P226 and P220 were both nice, but freakin' expensive - I may start with something a bit cheaper.  

*happy sigh*  And now, to hit the Cirque site to decide if the next trip is to see a touring show or back to Vegas!
