12 of 12

So I'm doing my 20th 12 of 12

12 pictures taken on the 12
th of the month. Since I only post once per day, you get my images the following day. All pictures taken with my iPhone. Click images to enlarge, if you choose.

Created by Chad Darnell (thanks Chad!) and picked up from, what I can tell, a number of random bloggers who then link back to him and vice versa. While he said he would stop it at the end of 2010, it still looks up and running to me, so I'm running with it.

Vegas edition. Yeah, I was in Vegas yesterday.  Clearly I had some free time from the end of work until my red-eye home.

06:00.  The bill slipped under the door.  It was actually there when I got up at 4:30, but I didn't feel like taking pics that early.

07:30.  I make no secret that I eat cereal like a kid would. I would never buy Fruit Loops at home, but they are just fine at a Fairfield Inn.

 08:00.  Luxor.  ...and a beautiful blue sky.

08:05.  New York New York. Around 9/11 this year, I found it odd that when this casino was built that they never put up the twin towers.  As old as this place is, and as iconic as they were, I would have just assumed it would have been part of the original design. 

11:30.  I'm not proud of this - my BMI: 23.7.   Norm for a man of my height and age:  11-21.9, which is quite a range in itself.  This can be explained by Fruit Loops.  I had a salad for lunch. We won't talk about the chili cheese dog and onion rings I had for dinner.

14:00.  Drunk Octopus Wants to Fight You.
 18:00.  Moonrise over the desert.

 18:30. Fountains at Bellagio.  "Luck Be a Lady".

 18:50.  Lobby of Bellagio.  Ceiling of Dale Chihluly flowers.

 19:00.  David G. in some weird store in City Center.  That is not his parasol.
I've seen David more in the last 5 months than I have in the last 5 years.  It has been great!  

19:05.  Same store. A Lego chair.  A fucking $72,666 Lego chair. Seriously.

19:30.  Whirlpool or Waterspout - contained.  David called the toilets. But is it "art"?

Your Baker's Dozen
20:10.  Las Vegas Blvd, heading north.

I <3 Drunk Octopus

Jill said...

Fruit Loops and Chihluly... kinda similar. At least, the drunk octopus says so. ;)

dear me!
I haven't seen Froot Loops in decades - what a colour scheme! I don't think this is what dieticians mean when they say fill your plate with the colours of the rainbow!

Excellent post. Loved the photo from the Bellagio.

Oh yeah, and for the record, you'll always have gold status with me.

And I bet that lego chair is uncomfortable as HELL.

The chair is lame. Didja gamble a little? I can't resist a little Carribean stud or my favorite Pai Gow.

You captured awesome shots of Las Vegas. You should stay there for a week to totally enjoy the city.
