Sorry for the lack of posting yesterday – my internet was down all day. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it. (So if you saw me having a fabulously long lunch with my girlfriend and then going shopping for the rest of the day, please just go ahead and keep it to yourself.)

I don’t know how many of you have been to the casinos here, but if you have, I’m dying to ask: how are the carpets? I’ve been curious ever since I read this hilarious article on how tacky casino carpets are “an exercise in deliberate bad taste that somehow encourages people to gamble.”

Actually, I’m not sure what’s funnier – the fact that there’s someone out there designing purposefully gaudy carpets, or the fact that I found two that I actually like (as a print, not plastered across a huge room). I swear these look like Etro scarves I own.
