    "Going to bed earlyl" is absolutely not allowed at FORTcon! Don't worry--we'll keep you up! And you best be at FORTcon II, cali!

    I think, though, that some of us would STILL be wandering around the Blue Line.
    Would each team be given like $3 and one transit pass?

    Yeah. Which would knock out OTS, whose pass got eaten on the bus.

    Want to know something stupid? On the drive home tonight, I thought how we would conduct an Amazing Race-type race in Las Vegas and the prize we could offer. Get a sponsor, and we could get a nice prize, like an iPod or something...

    Man, we'd have to have more than two people per team, though.

    1. For general safety (i.e. we don't end up spread out in more than 20 bars)
    2. There will be sheer madness and rioting if Phat can't help at least four other people out.

    Well, Manny, I'm pledged to L.G. (and no regrets there), but if it wasn't for that, you and me, buddy.

    And, yeah, you're absolutely right: If there are bars along the route, it would be the slowest leg of an Amazing Race in history: "Hold on, partner, while I stop for a beer. All this running makes a body tired!"

    An honest-to-goodness prize is pretty good incentive to finish, though.

    "Stop at Mirage and get a pamphlet on the white tigers. Show us your ticket stub for the art show at Bellagio," etc.

    "A book of matches from the Bunny Ranch"
    (I had other items in mind but PG 13 kind of limits it)

    Ah, that's right, Phat mi amigo! Anyone but you and LG on the team would be wrong.

    Actually, though, this idea is pretty bloody brilliant. I'll have to see if my twin will run the race with me. Can't you see our title? "Manny/Shazzer - Telepathic Twins."

    Uh, yeah - I would need a partner who was a bit more mass-transit-savvy.

    So does that mean Gracie and I would get paired up to be the obligatory senior team?
    We'd kick y'alls baby butts alway the way to Reno.
