Vegas 2

On the Las Vegas strip there were four or five places selling a yard of margarita. Long plastic glasses, well 36 inches long actually, full of neon colored liquid. One of the signs advertising them said, "In Las Vegas this is how we do YARD work."
A lady at one of the shops asked me what I did for a living. I told her I worked in the toy and novelty industry.

She said, "I knew it. You're an animator! My brother in law is an animator. You carry yourself like an animator. You smile and dress like an animator."

I'm not sure what that means, other than that she didn't listen to me at all. But, now I'm self-conscious that I'm dressing and acting like an animator.
Vegas has disturbing ads for strippers and such everywhere you look. The women are all in strange and supposedly sexual positions...

Finally, there's a pug related slot machine. It took Men In Black to force them to do it, but it has been a long time coming.

The strangest slot machine was called Hot Flash. All the symbols were somehow related to a woman's change of life. You know, things like romance novels, fat husbands and rolling pins. I never saw anyone playing it while we were there.
The safety video they show you on America West flights is creepy. They show the air masks being released and no one in the film reacts at all. In fact, one of the actors smiles. They all take their time reaching up to get the masks and put them on. I understand they don't want people to panic, but do they really want people people to react to emergency situations with a kind of bemused irritation?
