We can all go home now: Comdex is over; Elvis has left the building. But before he left, The King paused at Microsoft's Geekfest long enough to perform a couple of marriages and sing a tune or two, thankyouverymuch.
|A Microsoft employee was later overheard answering the question, "How did you get Dr. Ruth to do that?" Another replied, "The same way you get Dr. Ruth to do anything: Pay her."||
Microserf Jenn Parsons, however, was late to the altar. The bride arrived mid-ceremony in full wedding regalia. A man in a blue Microsoft shirt leaned over and hissed at her, "You're late." She shot back, "That's why I'm getting married." Ba-dum-bum.
The reception banquet, while not sumptuous, was appropriate: beer and Domino's pizza.
Elvis, Microserfs, Dr. Ruth. Either we're beginning to hallucinate, or Comdex must be drawing to an end. Either way, it was a pleasant trip.
Food: On the mark
Overall: Viva Las Vegas! Now can we go home?
