Lost Wages

You DON'T wanna know what happened in Vegas. It wasn't pretty. We came, we gambled, we won some and lost more. Well, at least I came home with some cash left. I put it out of sight after I won on the 2nd day. I didn't want to spend every cent I brought with me. I was a good girl. The best way for me to enjoy myself in Vegas is to just think of my money as "play money." If I start thinking about putting those 20's into the machines, I think it would make me SICK to think of it as real.

I didn't play blackjack this time; I was feeling too mentally slow. Those tables were moving quickly & I didn't want to look like the dumbass I am trying to add my cards to see how close I was to "21." They'd already be on the next hand by the time I figured that shit out.

I saw some young punk drop $1700 into a craps game. CRAPS is right, considering he didn't do too well. That was ANOTHER game that was moving too fast for me. Dice tossed, lot of yelling, chips moved around & repeat ad infititum. I just couldn't follow it. Bleh.

Poker? Well, let's just say I kick major ass at home on the computer, where I don't have to do anything without a prompt. I can't seem to keep the suits straight & Texas Hold-Em tables were always packed.

There was the usual gluttony (not just ours) at some nice buffets. Lets just say that I really love prime rib & baked ham & had it for 2 meals each day LOLOL. We had a CHEAP but wonderful steak dinner one night for $4.95. With what I dropped in that particular casino, I figured that fucking steak cost me about $100! Ahhh..but it was worth it.

We saw a couple of shows (comped): comedian George Wallace (he was ok; he's better on cable) and a musical tribute to the Coasters, Platters & Drifters (also just "ok"--glad I didn't have to pay for it).

People watching wasn't that exciting this time.

What's to say about a bunch of blue-hairs in scooters monopolizing 2 machines at a time? Try "Run into my fucking ankles again, and you'll WEAR that little basket as I shove the handlebars up your ass and take off with your key."

And for the dipshits who took their walkers onto the escalators and then got off too slowly? As we are all backed up on the escalator behind them, I wanted to scream "It's NOT a fucking elevator" where we could all just take our time waiting for them to exit. I almost started tackling some old bitches from behind as we all started piling up at the bottom.

Outside the casino was a beautiful young woman minding her own business. A group of 3 guys was walking toward her, leering. She held her head high, continuing through and past them. One asshole tried to grab her ass as she passed him but missed. He did, however, turn completely around as if he was going to follow her. Bobbing & weavinbg through the crowd, his drooling-fool ass didn't take his eyes off of her.

Biting his bottom lip, he tells his buddies, "Man, I'd hit that SO HARD..."

It was all I could do to keep my voice low as I said, "Yeah, as if YOU'D have a chance at THAT, asswipe."

I wasn't up for an assbeating, his OR mine hehehe

Ahh the Wallace show... reminds me of my last trip to Vegas, we stayed at the Flamingo! Not the best hotel, but wonderfully proximal on the strip, you don't need a cab!

Hope you hit the buffet at the Bellagio! Not the cheapest, but definitely the best!

Sorry Vegas wasn't the shiznit for people watching, it's a crap shoot that way. You win some, you lose some.

Hope you enjoyed your time there, I lived vicariously through ya!

Sounds like a good time was had, even if you didn't get more out of people watching. I really want to go back to Vegas...guess I need to start planning;>

Oh yay! My blog buddy went to Vegas and all I got was a funny ass blog entry.

As attorney general, Schuette has been reliable in two respects: Inserting himself into everything, and being wrong about everything. It was his sage advice last year that the Legislature not set up a health care exchange. Schuette told the Legislature they didn’t need to because after Mitt Romney won the presidency, he would somehow single-handedly repeal Obamacare. That’s his track record in a nutshell.Click here To More......
