Cher is back!

Do you remember that I went to Vegas last fall. Of course you do, how could anyone possibly forget that *I went to Vegas*. I blogged some about it here, and quite a bit about it on my other blog, but I am pretty sure I mentioned seeing not-Toby, not-Elvis and even not-Michael there in the casino of my hotel. (Hotel seems such a pitifully small word to describe the lodgings in las Vegas. Each one is like it’s own resort, a self contained eating/sleeping/playing facility.) The performers looked like they were having fun, though who knows how they really felt. It was fun to watch them dealing and then singing a quick set, any way.

I also saw not-Cher. Man, she was beautiful in that gold lame dress and that long black curly hair. I kid you not, she was the first one I saw, and it took me a few seconds to figure out what was going on, yk? I was reminded of her when I read today that Cher is actually playing Vegas later this year. Not not-Cher, but the real deal. That’s right, you can get Cher tickets at Caesar’s Palace Las Vegas!

I guess I am showing my age, but I really do prefer her earlier music. That wildness on Half Breed, and that warm fuzzy loving thing she had with Sonny in I Got You, Babe. Defining songs of the era, I think. Yep, I can still sing the one and hum the other, but I’ll leave it to you to decide which is which. I will admit to dancing through the kitchen this afternoon belting out It’s in His Kiss. Don’t tell the kids–it really embarrasses them when I do that, ykwim?
