back from vegas!

Thursday, March 2, 2023

husband and i have been back from Vegas for a few days, but i’m just now getting to writing about it! i didn’t have time to write during the trip because we had so much to do and so little time. i think anything more than a few days would be too much Vegas for me, but i do wish we had stayed one extra day. mostly because i wanted more time with the amazing bathtub in our hotel room.

we stayed at the Venetian resort, and holy crap it’s BIG. i had watched some videos beforehand to prepare myself, but the scale of this place is truly insane. and i’m saying that as someone who grew up going to Disney World often! i’ve heard vegas described as “disney for adults” and, at least in the Venetian’s case, i agree. the level of theming, cleanliness, room size, and service at the hotel was better than what you get at Disney for twice the price these days. not that Vegas wasn’t expensive, but it’s still cheaper than a disney trip, lol.

i wish i had taken a picture of the glorious bathtub in our room. it’s rare for me to find a tub that i can comfortably submerge my big fat white ass in. this tub was deep enough that i floated in it! it also had handles on the sides which made it easier to hoist myself out. the only thing that could have improved it would be jacuzzi jets. the resort had a shop that sold really cute food-themed bath products, so i grabbed myself a “milkshake” soaking solution and it was fantastic, 10/10, literally would go again JUST to use that tub.

there’s a wax museum at the Venetian, so we went there late at night when there was nobody else around, and that was fun. i love this pic i got of kore with the Prince figure because they’re literally the same size and someday i will get him to do a Prince cosplay i s2g.


the other two big things we did were AREA15, specifically the Omega Mart experience, and kore and i went and got last-minute tickets to see the RPDR live show. Omega Mart was really cool but a little too crowded, probably because we went later in the day, so it kinda felt like sensory overload after a while, but i would like to go again to see it more thoroughly.

the Drag Race show was the best part of the trip for me, tbh. amazing show with some crazy shit going on— queens were dropping from the ceiling and throwing fire!! Jorgeous had this routine where she dropped down from the ceiling attached to nothing but a wrist strap and a pole and the whole audience was screaming. there was a ton of love shown for Eureka, too, which made me happy as a fellow fat trans person. also, the seating in the venue was tables rather than theater seats, and kore and i shared a table with this group of young straight girls who were, like, visibly uncomfortable in the presence of us as two scrunkly little faggots that didn’t fit their palatable idea of glitter-dusted Disney Gays, and that was really funny.

oh, and we also went to Rainforest Cafe! i took a picture of this little hanging ape statue that all Rainforest Cafes seem to have. i love this ape.


it was a short trip, but a fun one! the flight over there is super short so i would definitely visit again.

he found a bandaid

i’m writing this entry from an app called “writer plus” that, so far, feels like a nice alternative to the notes app on my phone.

i just went to my partner’s pharmacy to pick up some meds, and shares the elevator with a family that had 2 small kids. one was real little and the other was maybe 4 or 5. the little one was super excited to wave at me the whole way up (which i did back because you Must wave back at a kid when they wave at you) and the older one held up his hand, covered in marker scribbles, and yelled “LOOK I FOUND A BAND-AID AND I COLORED IT!!” and i was like “dude that rules” and then his poor exasperated father sighed “where did you get a band-aid….” stuff like that makes me want to be a dad so badly, little kids are so funny.

kore and i are gonna be travelling to vegas tonight so i hope i remember to journal about the trip! that’s why i downloaded this app in the first place. i’m bringing my digital camera, too, so when i get back from the trip i’ll have to figure out a good photo gallery setup for my site. i’ll probably just use zenphoto or somethin.

first entry!

welcome to the journal portion of my site. i’m not a major Poster so updates to this thing will probably be infrequent, but it’s primarily just for me, anyway! i’m using FlatPress because i like that it’s kinda minimalist and saves the posts as simple .txt files.

i do think this journal will be particularly useful when i want to post art with a more detailed description— sometimes i don’t have much to say about a piece, but other times it’ll be a fanwork or an OC piece that needs more context, so this is a good place to do that. i don’t write as much as i used to anymore, but this would also be a good place to put written works as well.

i also want to get into the habit of writing about things i do offline more often, like traveling and events i go to. i’ve always struggled with memory problems since forever (which might be an autism symptom) and it’s only getting worse as i get older so now’s a better time than ever to start documenting more of my life! so here’s what i’m doing today:

i’m dyeing a denim jacket black and it’s so much work…it’s a big comfortable jacket that i love wearing but the bleached blue denim color doesn’t really fit with the rest of my wardrobe, because i’m a spooky bitch and everything Must Be Black. after i get it dyed to a satisfactory level of darkness i then have to re-sew the patches onto it, which sucks because i just put those patches on a couple months ago!! the struggle is real but legally i have to be the coolest-looking fat person in the room everywhere i go. when i figure out a satisfactory system for storing photos on my site maybe i’ll put some pictures of the finished product.

n e way…that’s all i got for this post for now, folks!
