NEW New new HQ!

Things have been, well, normal for us, but bananas in reality.

Last you heard, we had moved to southern California, and AwesomeK was working in Funner, CA. Yes, Funner.

As much FUNNER as that was, we moved. To Las Vegas. Yes, that Las Vegas. The one where our dreams were dashed, slashed, and left to rot in the summer sun. Why in the world would be live here? What is wrong with us? The Land of Always Hot where Dreams Go to Die?

Because it is none of those things. We love Las Vegas, always have. We got married here. We feel right here. It also helps that K got a transfer to a casino out here. So here we are! Living in Vegas, Baby!

Which is not like you would think at all, really. First of all, Vegas is NOT just the strip. It really has a lot more to it, and a lot less at the same time. It feels more like a small town, with a giant tourist attraction plopped in the middle – that none of the “locals” go to. Ever. Whenever you mention the strip, all the locals sort of groan and roll their eyes, yet most of us are here because of it. We work in the casinos, or are supporting the people who do, yet we never go. Funny. The rest of Vegas is just, well, a town in the middle of the desert. There are Targets to shop in, grocery stores, pet food, vets, all the things. The only difference is almost everything is open 24 hours, and almost everything has a slot machine in it.

It is also the Land of Not Actually Always Hot, which was a shock. In the “winter” it gets to a nice and calm 60 degrees (Fahrenheit). The summer gets to an uninhabitable 115 or so, but the winter is nice. Seeing people in full down jackets, mittens, and hats while there is a light breeze is a treat, something to remember when the sidewalk is melting in the summer.Sidewalk_Egg_Frying_Day

So here we are. Cats, people, all living in Vegas. So far so good…

What else have we been doing? Other than working and living? Well, Saucy G has been working on a book. A couple of books. And short stories. And other things that have fanciful words in them. So this begs the question, if she was to share her fictional writings, should she do so on this blog? Or should she create a new website? What to do! What do you think?

Anyhoo, that is the brief and abridged update on what has been going on for the last six months. These last few months, years, have been crazy! Stick with us, though, and we will get back into the swing of adventures, writing, and what nots!

Happy New Year from Las Vegas, the Land of Not Always That Hot, where Dreams go to Thrive!

Catching up!

Oh hello there!

We have been BUSY BUSY BUSY! There is so much to tell you about! So, if all of a sudden you are inundated with AwesomeSauce Blogs, it’s because we finally had a chance to sit down, catch our breath, and do some writing.

Coming soon:

Come check out Santa Monica with the Duo, as they get to hang out at the End of the Road!

Thanks to a super friend of the Duo, we were able to go to COMIC CON!!! Follow us as we navigate our way through Nerd Mecca!

Of course there are card rooms to tell you about. Turns out SoCal (as the cool kids call it) is home to a couple of the best card rooms in the world! Did the Duo win all the Dollars? Find out!

We spent a day hiking through Hollywood! Horrors! Heroes! Hand prints! Hooray!

SoCal – Freeways, Highways and Byways, OH MY!

Keep your eyes out for invaluable Travel Tips! Such as, “Three Cats in a  Smart Car – A what not to do story.”

There will also be a couple of blogs about how we got to Vegas in the first place. What was Santa Fe like? How was Flagstaff? Is seeing a Giant Hole in the Ground worth it?

Finally, come with us to NoCal (Northern California, again, as the cool kids call it), as we check out a couple of breweries, and start adventuring in the City of Trees (and AMAZING HOUSES)!

All this and more coming soon from your favorite Adventure Duo!
