STBE shopping

Kim and I went STBE shopping today and had a good time, as always. While picking out "sensible black shoes" for Mormon Missionary night, we both opted for the socks with sandals look. We decided that the socks and sandals look is something we would totally see on missionaries.

How was that ever a style?

Still no word on how we're going to get those copies of the Book of Mormon. If you have an extra one and come across this blog, do you want to send one our way?

Great news!!!

Atomic Liquors has new owners! Sadly, it won't be open yet when we go, but we have something to look forward to next year!!!

I don't know how I feel about the renovations...I doubt we'll be able to buy tallboys of Busch.

See ya later, O'Sheas

It's true, it's true (tm Kurt Angle, circa 1999) - O'Sheas is no more.

Vegas excitement quote of the day

Just got an email from our resident giant:

...I probably won't be able to sleep the night before we leave since STBE is adult version of Christmas/Thanksgiving/New Years/St Patty's/Valentine's/Presidents'/Columbus/MLKJr/Easter days rolled into one!!!

You know you're not hardcore

...unless you live hardcore.

If you have doubts about how awesome STBE is, our fellow reveler (and blogger) Jessie is going above and beyond the call of duty to make sure she doesn't miss out this year.

Initially, STBE was going to start on Sunday and go through Wednesday to coincide with our actual birthdays. Due to an outcry by a lot of revelers, it was moved to the current dates to accommodate more guests. Jessie was very upset about the change in dates because her friend is getting married on the Saturday of STBE.

Most people would make Sophie's choice - the wedding or the birthday event of the year. Not Jessie. She is hardcore.

Jessie is flying in on Friday afternoon, out on Saturday, and back in on Sunday morning. She says she's sad that she'll be missing her favorite theme night, but happy that she won't be missing out on the rest of the festivities.

She's now rivaling Gabe for most hardcore STBE reveler.

Jessie - we salute you!!!

terterly erserm

This is related to nothing except for our obsession with talking like Tyler Perry. Both of these showed up on my Facebook page today and I just about died laughing.

Oh lerd.

Apparently, this is part of the herp derp meme...has no one figured out that Tyler Perry is herp derp?

Reasons to go to STBE 2012

  • We have Kat! 
    • We may not have Binh this year, but we do have Kat. Kat is our resident giant, and she does anything we ask her to do. Last year, she swam up to a leathery older man in the pool and sidled up next to him to ask about his shoulder shirt, and later, she pretended to be a Disney employee and confronted a guy on the street wearing a bootleg Mickey Mouse costume. Hilarity ensued. She's also a student of STBE, studying our website and proving her worth this year by alerting us to a price drop in the hotel resulting in a $30 refund.
  • We're cheap! 
    • We stay downtown because hotel rates are cheaper than on the strip, and it's much easier to find bargains on food, drinks, and gambling. And we don't go to nightclubs unless some rich Australian lady declares that she "likes the looks of [us]" and pays the cover charge for us, all so she can futilely flirt with Mike.
  • We become the tourist attraction!!! 
    • It's the most fun you'll ever have on a trip that doesn't involve expensive nightclubs and weird, nude circus shows. As Stephen says, "We just go wherever the costumes take us."
  • We're VIPs! 
    • All you have to do to be a VIP in Vegas is declare yourself one. We put fliers signifying our VIP status on our hotel room doors and announce that we're VIPs when we show up to the pool with a cooler full of beer, and apparently, that's all we need to do to not get kicked out. No one has questioned our VIP status yet!
