You know you live in Las Vegas when...

Pssssst! Did you hear it's Las Vegas Week on The Housewife Diaries?

Welcome to another edition of "You know you live in Las Vegas when". If you missed my past entries, catch up and then come back:



Edition 1


Edition 2


Edition 3


Here we go! You know you live in Las Vegas when...



Your kid's gymnastics class has some of the Cirque Du Soleil acrobats practicing nearby. I have to elaborate on this one! Both my kids are in gymnastics and, at one of their first classes, a very muscular (shirtless) man walked by the toddler class. I couldn't help but look- we mothers ALL did. He went over to another area of the gym and picked up this huge hallow cube-like thing and started twirling it all around his body. It was amazing! Turns out we have Circ performers that practice at the gym. Who knew!?



The bell to bring the kids back into class isn't a bell at all. It's Sheryl Crow's "Soak Up The Sun" song.



You haven't seen your winter coat in five years.



The big nightly news interview is Barry Manilow.



You know what a scarf is, but you cant remember what it's used for.



You're sick of hearing "it's a dry heat". No one sticks their head in an oven and then says it's a dry heat. It's just HOT!



Your kids have never seen a squirrel.




Screw the BBQ, you can cook your ribs on the sidewalk.



You watch CSI and correct all of their mistakes.



You cant remember what a lake looks like, but you know there's a big one nearby because everyone keeps talking about it.


Slot machines in your grocery store are no biggie.

Very informative. Should I be looking forward to these changes or dreading them? You crack me up!

We used to correct "Close to Home" which was set in Indianapolis...

First of they kept implying that the city hall was this big ornate building... The only problem is the building they kept showing was the US District Court, not the Indianapolis City/County building which is just plain fugly.

There was a bunch of other stuff too...

I'm totally envious of the shirtless acrobat sighting. I've only seen Cirque du Soleil on TV but they are awesome!

LOL See, I think I would struggle with the slots at the grocery store. I love those double diamonds.
And too cool about your gym!

I wondered how accurate CSI would be!

The temptation of living in Nevada, or even South Lake Tahoe would be TOO much for me! I'd come home broke from the grocery store with no food!

Funny... :)

Damn, I wish the school bell at my kid's school was Sheryl Crow. That's friggin' COOL.

Kathy said...

Are you serious? They play that song instead of a bell? That's too funny.

Katie said...

That is so funny about the Sheryl Crow song for the bell. Why didn't they do that stuff when we were growing up? Guess cause we were in Denver, not Vegas huh?
