Arriving back in Vegas last night Dan and I decided we wanted to hit the town like crazy wild kids. Unfortunately, for me, going out meant I would have to tackle my hair. Now, people never tell you the down side of convertible cars when you have reasonably long hair. I settled myself on a comfy chair and requested Dan left the room as brushing the knots out of hair causes instant regression into a whining 7 year old girl and I did not want him feeling the undeserved thunder bolt of my rath. Within minutes I was reduced to the sort of pathetic dribbly crying you do when nursing the toilet seat during an alcohol induced chunder. After 27 minutes I had managed to brush all the lugs out of my hair and was able to wash it, although I had to nip into the 24 hour trauma counselling centre in the lobby on the way out. I now tie my hair up and wear a hat.

We walked around Vegas desperate for me to finally eat a steak and were sadly disappointed. After, inadvertently, straying onto the wrong side of Vegas and becoming nose to nose with drunks and a toothless young lady of the night being written up for soliciting, we decided to give up and go back to the hotel. Fortunately Dumb and Dumber was on so we honked with laughter until we fell to sleep.

Woke early for a day of shopping and regretted not taking our travel provisions out of the car over night since the diet cokes and beef jerky had been simmering nicely over night, bit like a rancid casserole. Shopping was very exciting for me as everything is so cheap so I can actually buy things. Dan had to nip into Costco as it is like insulin to him, we bought nothing from there and then left.

As I mentioned before, today is a lazy day. So not a huge amount happened. Both bought clothes and shoes for a third of British prices which shall aid to give the illusion that I am rich upon my return home to Blighty, and we also went to the Hot n Juicy Crawfish restaurant I saw on Man vs Food. I love any place where it is mandatory to wear a bib. The waitresses were very excited about our accents but Dan has advised me just to say we're from London as when I say, in a hugely British accent, "we're from a lovely little village called FRITCHLEY in the middle of England", their face glazed over and one of their eyes slowly drifts to their ears. Lesson learned.

Now we are about to sludge down to the pool and act bilious an lordly before retiring to the hotel room to act gassy and loud. Need to sleep as we are driving all the way to San Diego tomorrow morning... Not before we nip into Costco so Dan can say goodbye.

Thought I would add the photos of the pizza that beat us. I have never had an American pizza so wanted to try one. I have used Dan's head as a form of measurement but I feel it does not really show the gargantuan size of the mighty beast, (pizza, not Dan's head). After eating I felt like that chap in the film, 'Se7en', whose stomach explodes after being force fed spaghetti hoops to death. I passed out whilst weeping softly and cradling my stomach and apologising to it. I am glad that I have tried it, but never wish to do so again.... A bit like the Astle Boxing day drinking initiation; both lead to biliousness.

It does explain why all the toilets are massive though. I do like the hotel room toilet mind, it cups your buttocks like a mother holds a new born.
