I think I'm going to Las Vegas in June!  
United Campus Workers has asked me to attend the Communications Workers of America convention in June as one of the delegates from our Local, and my boss has approved the time off (I'm taking vacation time, rather than professional development, since I've already "spent" my professional development time on going to IAAP International in July).

Yes, I know Vegas in June will be hot. I grew up in Phoenix. However, to quote Travis, "I don't understand people who tell me it's hot in Texas. It's a nice, steady 78 degrees. Well, unless you go outside . . . ."

I will try to bring Luís. And a camera.

All the stylin' ottarz pose there.
So Fred sez.
LOL.

Of course, I'm not sure *where* in Las Vegas; there's no information about the convention online except date and city.

Oh, yes, shelia, Luis must go with you! That Buddha is an ottarz shrine. And there's one-armed bandits in the airport, bloody oath 'streuth!

It's on the Strip.
Let me know when you get more info!

When in June? Mom's trying to get me to go for another mid-week break in June; if we were there at the same time, maybe we could do lunch! *g*

(Las Vegas isn't hot in June. Low 100's, tops. Wimps!)
Janet Miles, CAP-OMjanetmiles on May 1st, 2008 03:28 am (UTC)
Fly in June 21 and back out June 25. Lunch would be so much fun!

I'll have to see what her plans are. With Mom, I never CAN tell!

Congrats! I wish I could meet up with you in Vegas, but I know professional conventions aren't the best time to get together with friends.
Janet Miles, CAP-OM: avatarjanetmiles on May 1st, 2008 03:46 pm (UTC)
At some point, I hope to have, you know, an actual schedule. At which time I would be delighted to try making arrangements with you, and/or wildrider, and/or fatcook.

Squeeee!
OOhh! Maybe I can fly up for the day to see you. It's been forever!

Congrats on being asked!!

Bwhaha, I love the quote about Texas weather. Steady 78 degrees, unless you go outside. :P

What do we love about Phoenix? The weather!

What do we hate about Phoenix? The weather!
