Tomorrow starts the Unemployed meetup in Las Vegas!  So I take off from Ottawa tomorrow morning at 7AM, and return Monday night.  Should be a really fun time, although I doubt we’ll be able to get to do nearly as much of the stuff we’d like to over just 2 days.

I’ll return to Mend Pet on Tuesday, hopefully with lots of pictures to show and stories to tell!

It’ll be my first time on a plane, and my first time in the US… Exchanged some of my money the other day, it was strange to have American money.  I’ve never really had any, just seen it up close a couple of times.  I giggled when they gave me some $1 bills.  Bills!  For just 1 dollar!  How silly!

Thanks to the folks on Twitter who gave me some good suggestions on where to go and what to see!

  1. What else would there be for $1? We do have $1 coins, but nobody really uses those.

    Hope you guys have fun, and take lots of pictures (of YOURSELVES!) for me :) Raks said he’d be photographing all the pretty neon lights, I don’t care about those, I want to see everyone hanging out!

  2. Bought myself a new camera for the occasion, so I’ll be sure to put it to good use!

    We’ve got $1 and $2 coins which are in everyday use. So anything below $5 being in a bill just seems so strange to me! Guess I was raised that bills are for big money (which $5 was while I was growing up). :)

  3. I wish more Americans would see the fallacy (and ridiculous expense) of $1 bills. (We have $2 bills also, but they are rarely seen, except overseas by US servicemen.)

    Pennies are a pretty silly idea whose time has passed as well.
