Vegas … Day 1

Posted in Nonsense, Vacation with tags , , , , , on November 29, 2011 by Bob

Hi all, I am writing today from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. I am sitting here with my Coyote Ugly frozen beverage and feeling pretty good about myself. So far, Vegas is treating me well. I AM finding however that it is NOT a place for people with a fear of heights. Everything is so tall. I have mostly walked around today doing basic recon … and drinking. I don’t drink often but I figure we are here with no car and no kid so … when in Paris, or New York, or Hard Rock, or Luxor …

I have done a little gambling but not much. I have $10 in winnings so far. There were some losing of course but we won’t get into that. I did find a $5 black jack table. It didn’t go well. I only sat for $20 and had 4 straight hands of 15. I busted 3 of them. The dealer showed 10 all 4 hands so I had little choice. My last had I hit on 15 and drew a 3. These were the dealers hands 20, 20, 21, 20. That was my Black Jack for the weekend. My money will be better spent on buffets and booze. We won’t even talk about the tattoo fiasco.

I got carded for a drink. I saw 2 transformers, 1 Venom, 2 Elvises (or is it Elvi) and 1 … drag queen I think. Day time drag queens are not the top of the line. I think the better ones come out at night.

Most of what I will do of course I won’t be able to mention because it is Vegas. I wanted to get a post in today before the Ugly drink got me ugly. More to come tomorrow! Mr. Pappagiorgio signing off … for now.


Twenty Twenty Twenty Four Hours To Go … I Wanna Be In Vegas

24 hours from now, (10:30 p.m. Monday night) I will be in the air heading to Vegas. I really need a vacation. I think I have learned my lesson about saving all of my vacation for the end of the year. The other thing that I did not realize, since we haven’t vacationed without Tori and without putting Piper in a kennel, is how much you have to clean before you leave so that people can come over and take care of the dog. Tori is going to grandma’s for the week.

I still have to pack, I still have laundry to finish so that I CAN pack and I still have a few other things to do before we can leave. I have to finish tonight because I am working tomorrow. I may be slacking now but hopefully I will have some great blogs from Vegas. Now I gotta go spend some time with Tori since this is the last I will see her for a week. She is still asleep when I leave in the morning.
