Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

My girlfriends and I are planning a weekend trip to Las Vegas later this month.

We are so excited as last year's trip was a blast.

There will be 5 of us. Jonesy and KD are leaving their 6 kids at home (3 each) and they are the ones who are most looking forward to the much needed getaway.

We've already booked a show and are planning on relaxing, gambling, shopping, eating all weekend. AA said no sleep for us all weekend, which we have done on some trips before especially when we are winning at the crap table. Pre pregnancy I would've been up all night with them. But nowadays, my bedtime has been more like 9:00pm. I feel like a fuddy duddy.

I'm excited, I love girl bonding trips! :)

Have a greak weekend!

Question of the day: What is the longest you've ever gone without sleeping? (My longest was 30 hours)

Yeah, no booze for you! :(

When I was still in high school a friend and I ended up having this crazy bet. We had stayed up Friday night for a party, Saturday for another party and all day Sunday for the hell of it. It was then we decided to see which of us could stay awake the longest. I survived, just short of four days but when I slept, I slept for 21-22hrs straight before waking up, eating a little something and going back to sleep. Talk about wrecking your week... but it was a hell of a lot of fun trying to stay active after you've been awake for 48+ hrs.

The longest I've stayed awake was 40 hours, during high school. I had to organize a car wash, put out a newspaper, help a friend with the yearbook, and attempt to study for exams all while preparing for graduation.
During college, I've pulled a couple 30-35 hours, but only out of necessity due to multiple exams during a week.
I chug a starbucks light doubleshot and follow it with casually drinking a 20 oz. diet coke. Also what works is combining those foldgers tea bags of coffee with a diet coke- let the coffee steep in the diet coke and you have a disgusting combination of caffeine.
