So, being that I was in Las Vegas and all, I had to write about excesses.

My Own

So, of course you have to go out to an all you can eat place at least ONCE when you are in Las Vegas. They aren't $6 anymore, but such is life. We went to one that had seafood, which was fine, but the BESTEST thing was that one of the desserts was cotton candy!!!! I had not one, not two, but three. Yup. And it was great. Two pink and one blue. I thought I'd overdone it, but I could still eat more now.

I think this calls for a haiku:

Floating on a stick
My fluffy cloud of sweetness
Cotton Candy dream

Everyone Else's

Water water nowhere and many drops to drink/bathe in/flush/shower in. We stayed in a nice hotel, being that it was a wedding weekend and all, and all I could think of was the fact that the hotel did not: 1- offer to save water by suggesting you reuse your towels 2-have a flow control on the shower so it wasn't pumping gallons of water a second 3- have low flow toilets 4- watered the sidewalks and not the plants. And why do developments want to grow GRASS in the desert? Why not appropriate plants like sagebrush, etc.?

My Own in Reaction to Above

OK, so I'm a little nuts. I felt like I had to do something, so I collected all the plastic bottles that we used and brought them back home to recycle. Yup, a little nuts. But not too nuts - they didn't weigh much!

[note: what every cotton candy lover needs - their own machine!]

Ohhhh cotton candy. How I love it now..

However, when I was younger I saw the movie Killer Clowns From Outer Space. If you haven't seen it, these space clowns wrap people in cotton candy then drink their blood out through straws. It Terrified me as I'm not too fond of clowns anyway. Also, it was pink cotton candy. When you lick pink cotton candy it turns blood red. Whew did it take awhile to get past that one.

Sorry, felt the need to share.

I'm sensing a trait of Eslocura's. Is it the inner Queen wanting to rule all (most interviews, most cotton candy...). Or is it pure and simple competitiveness?

Susan, thank you for the warning. I will NEVER watch that movie, as I hate clowns too, yet love cotton candy and I never want to be afraid to eat it.

I'm thinking that being cotton candy for halloween would be fun...

What a splendid idea for a dessert! I adore cotton candy. Now I'm wondering if you can make it at home somehow??

All buffets should end that way! There's always room!

Wow, a real, live lesbian (ok, well, virtually... :-) ) Welcome! I just added a link on the bottom of the post - you can buy your own machine! Boy, if I had that, I'd have to buy false teeth within a year or two.
