We made it safe and sound to oz. It's right about noon on Monday as I write this, due to the magic of time travel. Kind of jetlaggy. Or, the Green Fairy Absinth Energy Drink I just drank (60% alcohol by volume, the alcohol in question being absinth) is messing with my brain. If I drink another I'll take a pic for you.
Haven't worked out connectivity yet, but I've managed to upload a few pics from the journey thus far. Hopefully tomorrow I can get back the pre-paid SIM I got when I was here in March. I've got little magic hardware SIM-fooler thingies for both my G1 and my iPhone 3G, so there's at least double the chance I can get some kind of only vaguely-overpriced Internet access.
I can never remember whether "The City That Never Sleeps" is Vegas or New York, but if it's Vegas, I can understand where it gets that name. Every goddamn building on the strip is blaring pop music and advertisements incessantly, making it impossible to hold a conversation, let alone sleep.
I'm hoping that the hotel I've been waiting in line for 45 minutes just to check in to has sufficient sound dampening.
On the plus side, I got an awesome pair of crappy sunglasses for $0.99, had a really awesome breakfast at the Wynn (where we are unfortunately not staying), and have yet to actually get anything for free.
