Hi. My name is Adam Saunders and I live in the world of 1's and 0's. This is my tiny contribution the vastness of internet information. It's just an opinion and should you have your own, please comment it!
Well, after tons of hassles in getting a new motorbike, it's finally here! A CBR 125 (because I haven't got a full motorcycle licence yet). Its a pretty darn good bike. I can't really see what it can do yet because its brand new so I have to wear it in first.
I'm hoping to get a few miles on the clock early (i.e. this weekend) as I travel over to Weston to see some old friends of mine. Looking forward to driving it around more.
Update: Sods law.. isn't it always the case! Plan to do all these things, and then it rains! Oh well, still have done a few miles on it already. Its already leaving me wanting more power.. Have to be careful not to get the motorbike bug.
Sitting in the office, trying to concentrate on the billions of things I have on my to do list. I think i've actually melted into the chair so now my arse has become part of the furniture.
Airconditioning, in the other rooms are struggling and I'm in the one room that doesn't have any... Chanced of finding on to buy? None.
Its weird how heat differs so much. Its about 34C today and in Vegas it was around 45C. However I much prefer the vegas heat than english heat. Its so intense, tiring and piercing, where as Vegas is a desert heat.. much more like just standing in front of a hair dryer.
Tomorrow is meant to be even hotter.. no more please!!
Well, I've come back from my trip to Las Vegas, and I'm not really sure what I can say about it except its a really surreal place where everything looks real enough, but nothing is.. Its kind of like being in one of those realistic dreams.
We stayed at the Mirage hotel, which is based around a tropical forest theme. You go into a place like that and wonder where the hell you are, and get instantly impacted by all the noise of the gambling machines beeping moronic tones at you.
Certain places like New York, New York, were just messed up. A place with a sort of Irish/English theme as it advertised outside. Instead you feel like you are in some sort of Wizard of Oz take off. You leave the place needing to be pinched just to check that that last experience you had was at all for real. The rollercoaster they have though was excellent, and I highly recommend.
Unforunately, because the trip was for business, I didn't have much time for slot machines or gambling. I had about two goes of a slot machine and have to say, it was so mind numbingly boring, I just don't understand how people can sit at those machines for days on end. Unsurpringly I didn't win anything, so came back with a massive loss of 2 bucks. Don't worry though, I'll just remortgage the house to claw some of the funds back.
Here is a video that Mark put together of the trip. Shows a few of the key sights, unfortunately it doesn't go down the strip as far as MGM grand and New York, New York.
I'm going to get some photos into my gallery of the place, but I doubt there is much that hasn't already been seen once before.
I huge congratulations on my very good friends Phil and Becky on their new baby girl "Hannah". Now their son (also my god son) gets a baby sister to play with.
Well done guys! Looking forward to getting back and seeing her for the first time :-)
