I LOVE MY LIFE!

I’m in Vegas…

AND…

I scored a FRONT ROW TICKET to a Cirque du Soleil show today.

FRONT ROW!%$#@$!#@!#

There’s something to be said for going to a show alone. There’s all the “onesies” left over.

:)

Aaaaand I think I’m going to another show tomorrow with someone I met from here.

On Thursday, I leave for the Playboy Mansion! I CAN’T WAIT!

So, what else has happened since I last blogged…

I got to Vegas on Sunday!

When I first got here, I was kind of taken aback… it seemed really… not safe. I was getting bombarded by people asking for money… one of the hotels that I was going to inquire about had a sign saying “Go To Deli To Make Reservation”… It was so weird!

I ended up getting a great hotel though (from what I’m told, it’s on the “New Strip” – which is apparently a lot better than the “South” side where I had been), and have been having a blast ever since.

Vegas is AMAZING at night!!!

I went walking around yesterday at 9:30 pm (which felt like 12:30 am to me because I’m still in Eastern Standard Time mode) and before I knew it, it was 12:30 am P.S.T.!

There are so many AWESOME things to check out!!

The Bellagio had this beautiful water works demonstration with music…. and the Venetian is G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!

I went to get my eyebrows waxed yesterday and ended up talking with a bunch of the locals who gave me some great tips on where to hang out, too. I think I’m going to hit up a bar tonight.

Annnyway… everything has been fabulous over here. I want to live in my car FOREVER! :)

Best time ever…

I’m currently pulled over behind a gas station in Fruita, Colorado.

I had been driving on 70 West, and realized that I need to blog about everything that was happening so that I didn’t forget one single moment.

So anyway… from the last time I wrote… I did end up going to the Budweiser tour. It was cool! I got to see how beer was made, and the different machines and stuff that were used in the process. We also got free alcohol at the end. ;)

I fell in love with St. Louis. The people there were GREAT! Everyone was so friendly… the drivers were AWESOME (I should’ve been honked at so many times… ;))

From there, I decided to reroute and head to Denver. My GPS had me going through Tulsa, Alburquerque, and Amarillo, TX…. so I decided to go west and hit Denver and Las Vegas instead.

I didn’t sleep at all the night that I went from St. Louis to Denver, because I was so exicited to get there.

I was there for 5 minutes… called 3 different hotels to see where I could stay… and they were all rude. I decided that I didn’t like Denver and kept moving. Maybe I was just spoiled from St. Louis…. but whatever. :)

I ended up sleeping in Parachute, Colorado last night. There wasn’t too much to explore there, but that was okay, because I was able to get a lot of work done as well as SLEEP!

I decided to go straight to Vegas today… but as I was driving, I randomly checked for “Attractions” in my GPS. I saw that there were a lot of wineries. Since I’ve never been to one, I pulled over and had my first wine tasting experience! It was fun! I learned how to do the sniff and whirl thing, too. Haha… I’m so uncultured. ;)

Oo, I also stopped at a fruit stand and bought a peach! It was ridiculously good! I never see fruit stands in Philly! That was also the first piece of food that I’ve bought so far on the trip (I’d been living out of the stuff I brought from Philly).

Oh, actually… I was falling asleep at the wheel yesterday, and since the roads were really curvy, I stopped at a 7-11 to get a Slurpee and super-spicy Doritos.

You know… speaking of Doritos… random note…

I’ve been keeping all of my food in the trunk of my car, including my snacks, because I know that I’ll unconsciously eat it if it’s next to me. I also made a decision not to waste money/calories on junk food. Because of this, when I end up at the Wal-Marts at 3am in the morning, I find it necessary to torture myself and go to the chips section and look at all of the stuff that I’m not going to buy. It’s INSANE how many flavors of chips that these Super-Walmarts have!! Bacon ranch? Bags of Doritos with two different flavors inside? Insanity!!

Then again, maybe this stuff exists near me… I don’t usually look at it. :)

Back to the trip…After the winery, I drove a lady to a nearby bike store because her tire was flat. She was really cool! I got her email and we’re going to stay in touch. :) There are a LOT of bikers around here, with some really rough terrain to work on! It’s all mountains!

So what else… I know there’s more, but so much is happening that it’s hard to remember everything.

Like I said, I’m on my way to Vegas now. I booked a hostel for four nights, because I’ve made such good timing on the trip! After that, it’s off to L.A. for the Playboy Mansion!

Workwise, my WSO with Brian is going INCREDIBLE! We have over 70 members so far. :)

I am having the TIME OF MY LIFE!

I started driving from Philly to Los Angeles on Tuesday. It has been SO awesome!

I’m in St Louis now, and have stopped in Indianapolis and Columbus, Ohio.

The drive has been going really well! My friend Dan Kelly gave me 7.5 gigs worth of products and audiobooks to listen to (over 100 hours worth of content), so I haven’t been bored at all. I ADORE HIM!

Actually… one of the things that he gave me was this awesome free teleconference call between Rich Schefren, Stephen Pierce, and Alex Mandossian. It was unbelievable! You should have seen me… I was driving, with one leg curled under me, with a notebook on my lap, and taking notes as I was driving. I know it’s not the safest thing ever, but how could anyone listen to that call and not take notes!?!?

In other news, I have a newfound love with Wal-Mart. There’s about a trillion 24 hour supercenters within every square foot around here… it’s awesome for the weird hours I’ve been keeping!

For example.. the first night, I slept in my car at a park. I was ready to start driving again at 4:30 am, but had to go to the bathroom… so I was able to just drive to a Wal-Mart!!

(There aren’t any 24 hour supercenters in Philadelphia, so excuse me if I sound ridiculously ignorant.. hahaha)

SPEAKING OF IGNORANT!! I saw the coolest thing!!! My cigarette lighter blew up yesterday, so I had no cell phone charger. I pulled over somewhere in Illinois to ask them to charge my phone via electricity for a little bit… and in this big travel stop, there was a shoe-shining station!!

True story!

Someone actually had to climb up on a perch.. and there actually was someone sitting in one of the chairs… and another girl was shining his shoes!

I wanted to take a picture, but since they were charging my cell phone for me, I figured that I shouldn’t be rude. ;)

Since my cell phone lighter died and I had no electricity for my laptop to charge or my camera, I decided to get a motel for the night.

Although the hotel is insanely vile, I’m still in love with it. I walked in and wanted to kiss the (dirty) walls. I’ve never appreciated a bed more in my life!!!

Hahaha… about the hotel: I’m really not complaining, I swear. It’s a huge upgrade next to sleeping at a park. But check out the shower!

It was AMAZING to have a bed, regardless, though :)

In other news… a few people have recently approached me to do some copywriting for them!!! SOOOO EXCITING$#@#!!@

And last but not least – my friend Brian and I launched a Warrior Special Offer that we’re going to convert into a regular membership site. It has been doing PHENOMENALLY so far!! You can check out the thread here. We have over 50 members already!

Okay.. I have to go see if I can get that cigarette lighter fixed… and maybe tour the Budweiser brewery around here. Budweiser originated in St Louis, so there are 5 million Budweiser signs all over the place! I’m not really a beer drinker, but it should be interesting anyway!

I’ll update as soon as possible as I make my next stop – I think I’m going to stop in Tulsa, next!
