Vegas Hates Me As Much As I Hate This New Keyboard

I went to Las Vegas (again) this weekend for Stephanie's wedding. It was fun and Stephanie and Scott's Wedding was quite nice. They got married at a typically Vegas wedding chapel. It was a cute little chapel with a drive thru - classic. There were neon signs in the lobby which I found very humorous for some reason. It just screamed Vegas. The place was a mad house. When we pulled up, I saw 2 other couples outside. There were 2 more groups inside. It was nuts. Since Steph's party was pretty small, we were able to skip ahead of the larger groups and use the smaller chapel. The decor was dark plum, which coincidentally , matched my dress. Yay! I was the Matron of Honor and had to stand up front. I know I'm going to look like a big dork on the video. (sigh). And as usual, my hands were dripping with sweat and I know Scott's ring had to be all slimy when I handed it to Steph. Sorry 'bout that. But other than that, everything went smoothly. It was great.

The night before the wedding, Stephanie's aunt and cousin threw her a bachelorette party. That was crazy. The theme was apparently penises. There was a contest to see who could carve the most realistic penis out of a cucumber. There was a Pin the Penis on the Hunk contest. (It was a poster, nut an actual hunk.) Plus, there were penis straws, penis name tags and Stephanie had to carry around a bouquet of penises. It was just insane. (I have just set a personal record for the use of the word "penis" in a paragraph.) Sadly, I really enjoyed the cucumber contest. Not because I was carving a penis, but because I really dig the arts and crafts. I was putting a lot of care and detail into my masterpiece, but apparently I was taking too long because I had to quit before I was finished. I did however, come in second, so yay for me.

I had terrible luck in Vegas (again). I don't know what I did to offend the gambling Gods, but Vegas really, really, REALLY hates me right now. Everything I did turned to shit. Still, I had a good time. As they say, "Your worst day gambling is better than your best day working."... OK, I know that saying is supposed to be about fishing. I was just trying to be funny... and I have failed miserably.

Anyway, I came back to work today and discovered that some clown in the IT department replaced my normal keyboard with one of those funky-ass ergonomic keyboards. To put it mildly, I am not a happy camper. Ergonomics are for wimps. I was doing just fine with my normal keyboard. I don't want this fancy-pants, freak-show keyboard. Apparently though, some moron decided that this was a good idea and the switch is mandatory. Well, screw you guys. I have an extra keyboard at home, and rest assured it will be hooked up at work tomorrow. I seriously hate this thing. I already had a hard enough time typing, because I suck, Now I have this weird layout to contend with. And my wrist is killing me. I though this was supposed to be more comfortable. This thing really sucks ass.

I know I'm a little late on this, but can I just say WOO HOO about the Yankees ultimate choke in the ALCS? What a glorious turn of events that was. It was the worst choke in the history of sports and it couldn't have happened to a more deserving franchise. I'm still giddy.

Dear Randy,
Please don't divorce me over the preceding paragraph. I know you love the Yankees and I tried very hard not to celebrate in front of you, but I just thoroughly enjoyed the choke so much that I had to comment on it. I'm sorry for your pain but I really do hate the Yankees this much. Sad, but true.
Love Always,

Anyway... who, besides me is watching the new show Lost? If you're not watching it, you should (Wednesdays at 7 central on ABC) because it is creep-tastic. I am so hooked. Just awesome! It kind of scares the crap out of me with the creepiness but its sooooooooo good. I can't wait until tomorrow! Guess that's all I have for today. Later.
