For my amusement

Summer is definitely here, we've seen triple digits the past week and today we're set to reach 108. The hottest day so far this year. The heat must be getting to me because I've been easily amused, first, by the above cartoon.

Then, the list of prohibited and approved items for the Electric Daisy Carnival (the dusk to dawn weekend rave) gave me a giggle. Ready for this?

• Festive Costumes

It ought to be wild with 250,000 people at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Expect to see a lot of "Do Not Disturb" signs during waking hours and I suspect the hotel pool's will be ghost towns. Well... at those that welcomed the EDC crowds, anyway. I heard several strip hotels inflated rates beyond New Year's rates to keep "the kids" away. I won't want to be anywhere near downtown or the strip just before dusk or after dawn. That's a whole lotta people that gotta go to and fro.

Lastly, I'll leave you with this blog post that had me rolling, because who could resist a 5 foot cock? "That's Why You Should Learn to Pick Your Battles."

Well now, they just took the fun out of all that, didn't they? I mean how am I supposed to wear a festive costume without the LED gloves, large chains and pacifier??? I guess I'll just wear the fanny pack.. lol

Glad I didn't pick this weekend to come to Vegas.....
