You know you live in Las Vegas when...

Welcome to the 5th edition of "You know you live in Las Vegas when..." Wow, five of these already? I cant believe I've come up with so many things that makes living in Las Vegas unique, but I tell ya, there's never a lack of crap to write about!

So thank you, Las Vegas.

To read the past entries of YKYLILV, GO HERE. These are worth checking out. One of the blogs was even written by my beloved husband- so don't say I didn't warn you!

Seat belts buckled!? Make sure your tray tables are in their stored and upright positions.

Here we go!

You know you live in Las Vegas when...

A 70 degree day in January doesn't impress you. But a 70 degree day in June does.

Your kids have a snow day from school, even though there isn't any snow on the ground. (Seriously- this was too weird for me!) To read more about Clark County School's first snow day in 29 years, click here.

You know what a bank-owned home is, and there are ten of them in your neighborhood alone.

You plan for your summer vacation strictly to 'get out of the heat' for a few days.

Your kids have never owned a pair of snow boots.

You call to make yourself an appointment, and find out your family doctor is booked solid for the next four months. This just happened to me this week! Grr! Las Vegas health care is seriously lacking.

At a size 12, you're the "fat friend" in your group of girlfriends.

One of your coworkers is a "professional nude dresser." Seriously. How cool is that? Can you guess who it is? I think it'd be a blast to glue on pasties and jewels onto showgirls and dancers. How do I get that job?

Las Vegans, feel free to add your own YKYLILV ideas to the comments. I'll add them in an upcoming edition- and give you full props!

You can pretty much swap out Miami for Las Vegas...except for the snow day. Then it would be hurricanes.

No school and no snow? Why? That is very funny though, I can just see your face!

Gini said...

You are a crack up. I love reading these - yes, can you believe our kids have a makeup snow day?? Crazy.

Tasha said...

Gini- I KNOW! The snow day "make up" is a total crock if you ask me.

When you can take a vacation in your own town and not sound like a total loser. Hey it is Vegas!

::Meg Waves:: I am adding you to my follow list!

I want a seventy degree january day and I'm already the fat friends and I live in Kansas. Guess that one is universal

Dont worry I will be there soon to make you look fabulous next to me. Ha ha. What am I going to wear? I'm already worrying about it. In Tulsa you can wear jeans and a hoodie to a bar and no one cares. If you dress up people look at you funny or ask you where you've been that you had to get all dressed up.
