I know there have been a couple of "what do you do for a living" threads. As the new academic year approaches, I'm wondering if there are any other people involved in higher education who enjoy these boards (and Vegas) as much as I do. Faculty? Administrators? Staff? Grad students? If so: how open are you about your Vegas interest with fellow academics? Myself, I teach in the humanities at a mid-sized university. My wife is also an academic. We get tired of explaining ourselves when we talk about our trips to Vegas--with a very few exceptions, colleagues just don't "get it." So we limit our tales of Vegas adventures to a very select group of friends.
