Back home

See now this is a nice picture of Laverne and I, but I really am only posting it because Laverne insisted that if I put up the below picture, I had to balance it with a nice picture of us. This is the night we went out to see Love, the Cirque du Soleil Beatles show, in Las Vegas.

Of course, me being me, I adore this second photo. I crack up every time I look at it.

The trip was fun - I got to see my family and friends (except Jonathan but I'll be back in five months) and relax at mom's for a few days and then play in Vegas for a few days. Vegas was rather kind to me and I only spent half my $450 budget. I won a $75 jackpot right as we were leaving, so that was a nice kiss good-bye.

The weirdest thing in Vegas was when I woke up in bed, naked, with Laverne. We each had our own bed in the room, but somehow I sleepwalked over to her bed. Apparently I dove into her bed after taking off my underwear and woke her up brutally. She yelled at me but I didn't wake up. Luckily (or not, depending on your pov) I'm not like Brice, who sleepsexes.

I like both pictures! They show both sides of your zany personalities!

I'm glad Vegas didn't break your heart! I don't know why I'm using so many exclamation points.

PERVERT. If you wanted it, why not just ask. It's easier that way.

Welcome back. Glad you had a good time!

Don't mean to ruin your homecoming by being grammar police, but you wrote:"See now this is a nice picture of Laverne and I ..." It should be "Laverne and ME." You'd never say: "This is a nice picture of I," so you can't say "Laverne and I," either.

Since you've taught language classes, I thought you needed to know that ;-)

Welcome back!!! You were missed.

The photos are BOTH great! Glad you had a good time in Vegas.

If I were Laverne I'd have been a bit suspect of the naked sleepwalking and joining her in her bed. You're not thinking of switching teams, are you???

Mark :-)

Welcome back!

"What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!" ;-)

Greg said...

Butch, that's what I thought!!

That second picture is a keeper, but Laverne's right...it's funnier in contrast to the lovely one that precedes it.

Welcome back!

It looks like you had a good time. I'll let the Freudians unravel your nocturnal activities.

David said...

Welcome back. I missed ya!

And the pics are fabulous.

You look quite stodgy in the second picture. Laverne is beautiful any way. It's a girl thing.

Glad to have you back.
Are you still a non-smoker?

Snooze said...

You are back with a vengeance! Those pics are amazing and the story of your sleepwalking is completely hilarious.

LOL, and thanks for the mention - let's see why my new readers show up...
