black jack on a saturday night

i'm moving. just like sheryl crow and elvis etc., i am leabing las begas. and as one very special al jolson sang in 1924, "caalifornia here i cooome, right back where i started frooom...."

which just goes to show if you say you'll never do something, and your name is meredith eaton, it usually means you will end up doing that something. "i'd never go on a mission." "i'm never eating chocolate again!" "i'm never going to live in CA again." como se dice jinx? but hot dog, if i've got to leave a place, at least it's for a place where the sun shineth eternally and the beach lies at my fingertips.and i've never been opposed to having good sorts of feelings about my next step in life and the people i am putting myself nearer to.

vegas, i love thee and the fact that you have a TERRIBLES car wash on every corner. getting your car sudsed up by multi-colored, passion fruity smelling soap never was so much fun. i love your dry heat and the good things it does for me when i'm trying to flat iron my hair. i love knowing that at any given moment, i'm probably in the same city as paris hilton, and definitely in the same city as one of the largest gold nuggets in the world (at the golden nugget). and i could go on...

i am taking one thing from vegas with me:

Why couldn't you have decided to move back like, two weeks ago when I was in So. Cal? Yeah, real thoughtful of you, Merz. Geez. Way to be a devoted cousin.
