    My Trip Report

    Yes,… and what a great trip this was!

    Girls Gone Wild- Typhinie style!

    I'll start with a little bit of background not his trip. I went with 2 girl friends-Gina and Vanessa. Gina was meeting a guy In Vegas that she had met when he took a trip to LA and they had a little fling. I kind of thought this was a bad idea for her to meet him there because I know how a lot of people act in Vegas and I kind of knew he wasn't going to give her the dream weekend she was looking for....

    So the drive out to Vegas wasn't bad at all. It took us about 4 and a half hours and that was with pit stop at In and Out. We arrived at the MGM at about 6:30 PM, needing a cocktail and ready to get the trip started. We had 7 bags in between the 3 of us so it was a long haul to the check out counter. As we were walking in, I ran into a girl who I went to high school with that I have kind of lost touch with. I swear it is such a small world! We were pretty close friends and she informs me that another girl we know lives in Vegas now! I give her my number and we promise to meet up for drinks later.

    We get checked in and settle into our room. We are on the 20th floor, facing south strip. We had a great view of Tropicana, Mandalay Bay, and Excalibur. I was very happy with our room. It was a pretty good size, was the first room in the hallway-very close to the elevator, and was just classy looking. The only thing I didn't like was the pictures on the wall. They were black and white pictures of what I would guess were movie stars. It wasn't any one I recognized and I kind of felt like they were staring at me. I tried not look directly at them.

    So Gina decides to take a shower, so me and Vanessa decide to go down to the Casino and grab a drink. We have a couple and decide to go to Wallgreens because she needs to get her prescription filled. By the time we leave there we are starting to feel a little buzzed and feel really great about being in Vegas. She wasn't sure If she was happier she was in Vegas or that she didn't have to work for 5 days- I was sure I was happy because I was in Vegas.

    When we get back up to the room, Gina tells us she wants to meet her "boy" at the airport when he arrives. I didn't really want to go because first of all-he had someone else picking him up, 2- he was staying at MGM- we would see him in a few minutes when he got to the hotel, and 3- I don't really know him. Call me selfish, but I only have less than 48 hours in Vegas I want to make the most of it and that doesn't include being at the airport when I don't have to be. SO I tell her I don't want to go, thinking my other friend will back me up. She didn't so I look like a bitch. I decide to go anyway because I didn't really have any choice at all.

    We start heading to the airport and Vanessa says, "Why is that it's 11 PM in Vegas, and I don't have a drink in my hands?" Gina gets upset and drops us off at Mandalay Bay because she knows we don;t want to be going to the airport..

    Vanessa and myself decide to settle in on the Island Lounge. We got a great seat at the bar top and order some Champagne and played spot the hooker-but we gave up because we pretty much convinced ourselves that every girl in there was some sort of escort/stripper. A couple guys come up to talk to us and buy us drinks. I think I had about 5 glasses of champagne with in the hour on an empty stomach. I knew I should slow down, but I decided to not listen to the better half of me and kept drinking. Our drunk asses start talking to hookers because we wanted to know more about their life style-but for some reason, they didn't want to have anything to do with us!?

    So we decide to go to Rumjungle and dance. We get inside and the place is pretty much empty. We have a couple more drinks and decide that it's too much of a sausage fest there. (All the guys were either too intimidated to come talk to us, or were not interested, but I think they were gay)

    I think we sat down at some slots and started playing. This is were my night starts to get fuzzy. I remember my friend hitting on the cocktail waitress, and us loosing money so we went back to MGM. I remember us having the meanest cab driver. He wasn't playing along with any of our drunk talk. As we were walking in I see a group of boys around my age so I decide to hit on them. They were the funniest English boys I have ever met. I don't recall why they were fun but I remember them being really cool. We tell them to meet us at Tabu because that is where we were meeting our other friends. As we were waiting in line I start feeling sick. I drank a ridiculous amount of champagne and I knew I was too drunk and was probably going to be sick. My friend takes me back up to the room and I THINK i threw up. I don't remember. My friend says I did-so I guess I should believe her. The next thing I remember is my friends coming back up to the room at 4 30. I feel lame. I am usually the life of the party and am in bed feeling like death. I decide to wake up and go gambling with Gina's guy. I am still drunk from earlier that night and we decide to go play craps.

    I finally get the dice handed to me and I remember having the worst roll I think in the History of craps. I sevened out almost immediately. We decide to play blackjack. I remember going to the ATM at some point but don't really remember anything about how much money I won or lost. I remember hearing some guy say he saw Quentin Tarantino (sp) at some bar in MGM, but I don't think I ever saw him myself. I go back up to the room when it is light out and pass out.

    I wake up about 10 feeling like death. I threw up again and fell back asleep praying that I would feel better. I decide right then and there I am never drinking champagne ever again!

    We wake up at about 12-most of us not remembering a lot. I was feeling a lot better. One of the boys said the last he saw of me the night before was at a $50 minimum BJ table. I have no idea how I ended up there because I am a poor college student. We look at our digital cameras and try to recap the night. I look in my purse to see if I have any money at all left and I find 4 black chips in my purse and 300 dollars in cash. I only brought 500 with me, and when I went to the ATM the most I could have taken out was 300-so I technically haven't spent any money at all. Nice! I wish I remember what happened in the casino last night- I guess I did pretty well. I spent atleast 200 on drinks and slots from what I remember so I knew I won some money.

    We go down to the Rainforest Cafe and eat. I had the baby back ribs which were not that good. The crab dip was really good but all in all I wasn't impressed. Gina had to meet someone she knows in Vegas so she left us. Vanessa and I decide to go shopping. We have had a couple cocktails and know we probably shouldn't but we do anyway. I buy these ridiculously expensive shoes, which could only be described as classy stripper shoes. My friend buys a dress and we decide to go to IP to gamble a little bit.

    We lose some money there and go over to Carnival Court for some fun. We walk in and I swear it was the funniest thing I have ever seen. It's 3 PM. Everyone is way too drunk. We order yard margaritas and prepare our selves for a good time. I love this place. I have never been here during the day, and if this isn't a party I don't know what is. I saw the most conservative looking people dirty dancing, girls making out with each other, and just crazy things.

    There was this group of drunk Scottish people who kept simulating VERY dirty things with their giant drinks. I danced with random people-including the super cute Scottish boys. I went to restroom and when I came back they were having a booty shaking contest. I was mad because I really wanted to enter. But I was glad I didn't! This 65 year old lady went up there and totally rocked! She was so awesome! I mean she really shook that thing. The whole place gave her a standing Ovation. I went up to after and told her how good she was and she whispers to me "I hope when your 65 your still partying as hard as I am!" Only in Vegas......

    After witnessing some freaky things, we decide to head back to the hotel at about 7. We stop in get silly sunglasses to wear. We walked through Harrahs wearing these silly Elvis bright gold sunglasses screaming things at people walking by. I mean picture 2 young girls with stupid glasses on, empty yard drinks, running through Harrahs screaming what I am sure were profane things at people.

    We get back to MGM and decide we need to sober up a little if we were going to make it all night. We order room service and start to get ready. Our friend Gina comes back from her dinner with her guy. She went to N9NE and said it was really good. This is really the only time she has spent with him. He is gambling all night, all day. I kind of feel bad for her because he's not really paying that much attention.to her.

    I somehow get myself together end up looking pretty cute. We head downstairs to Fat Tuesday's and get Jell-O shots and Hurricanes. I swear walking around with my friends was so funny. The women were all talking crap about us, and all the men were talking to us. I think someone may have called us "hoochies". Someone walked by my friend and said "Damn those are some nice breasts!" I have never had so many people be so honest with us. Bad and good. It was awesome.

    We go to Mandalay Bay to meet the boys. They were getting a table at Body English so we were just going along for the ride. On the way up to their room in the elevator, I was trying to talk to people. These were the snobbiest people I have ever met. No sense of humor what so ever. So to freak them out me and my friend started fake fighting. "You slept with my husband!?" "you whore!" They were all so scared when we exited the elevator. Good times...

    We end up at Body English ready to party. They got a pretty cool table over looking the dance floor. We take shots and start to party. I LOVE this place. There is something about this club that just makes me happy. Maybe it's the music they play or just the over all vibe of the place, but it's just so- VEGAS.

    My friends were all pretty drunk at this point. I wasn't too far behind. My friend Gina was so trashed she gave me a lap dance in front of like a billion people. I was a little worried about her because she was really drunk. She's the type that gets really emotional if something happens so I wanted to watch out for her because she wasn't watching out for herself.

    I was dancing the whole night. I didn't stop. I ripped my skirt trying to do some sexy dip to the ground and had to walk around with a ripped skirt. It didn't look too bad though-it was kind of a slit up my leg that looked like it was supposed to be there. It's an expensive skirt though I am a little pissed now that I am sober about it. I danced on tables with my friends and just had a great time. The guys that had the table next to us sure got a show...

    2 bottles of grey goose, and a bottle of crown royal later, we were ready to gamble. As we were walking out we were approached by this girl that said her friends want her to make out with a girl, would any of us be interested. Vanessa says "Yeah, I'll do it." I was so shocked. I just met her a couple months ago and I had no idea she was this much of a party girl. So she made out with her-and we walked out the door. It was pretty funny.

    So as we walk out of the club, you have to go into an elevator to get back up to the casino level. There was a midget in a tuxedo working the elevator and I found this really entertaining. I love VEGAS!

    SO I am off in my own world thinking about midgets in tuxedos and my friends making out with other girls that I somehow lose my friends. I can't find them anywhere. I am by myself for about 20 minutes and I start to get mad. I was pretty sure they left me there. I am the type of person who watches out for my friends even when I am super drunk.

    I finally find them. Vanessa tells me we need to go now because Gina is crying. I knew this was coming. I guess her guy wanted to go and gamble and she wanted to pend time with him and was really drunk and emotional about it. I don't know what exactly she expected going to Vegas to meet a guy but she was hysterical. I am talking really out of control tears. He was trying to explain to her that he came out to Vegas with his friends and they gamble a lot and it's not that he doesn't care for her but that's just what he wants to do. I felt bad. She doesn't gamble and just wanted a few hours with him. But I totally understand where he was coming from. I tried to calm down my friend who was embarrassing herself in front of his friends who thinks she is psycho at this point. She wasn't listening to me. For some reason when she gets like this, the only person who can calm her down is a boy. Maybe it's because of her bad relationship with her father, but she seems to really be clingy with male attention and if she's not getting what she wants she gets upset.

    We finally get into a cab and on our way back to MGM to regroup and calm down. I am a little angry at this point because I know how it is to be upset in Vegas, but I just pull myself together and go out and meet another boy to flirt with. Nobody is that special to get yourself THAT worked up about. So, we all go back to the room. The guy is trying to calm her down but she just starts bringing up crazy things from her past. Everything that has ever hurt her in her entire life was mentioned. I tell him to leave because that is what he wanted to do and he wasn't making anything better. Nothing would calm her down. She chases him out and there is a dramatic scene in the hallway where I could hear people laughing at her. She was saying things she didn't mean. Like "I love you- why are you leaving me?" I felt so bad for both of them.

    I find her a half hour later sobbing in the hallway. She refused to get up. Me and Vanessa had to carry her back in the room. I had to hide her phone because she was calling ex boyfriends and people she shouldn't. Vanessa and I kept telling her she's in Vegas and there are plenty of things to do and not to worry about anything. She was hysterical still. SHe didn't want to calm down so we put her to bed. I had every intention on going back down to the casino for a drink-because after that scene, I needed it. But I waited for her to fall asleep, and I fell asleep.

    I woke up 915 the next morning. I was flying home today at 12:30 so I needed to get myself together, check out, and head to the airport. I was flying home a day early than the rest of the girls, but I was kind of happy about it. I knew this drama wouldn't end. They were planning on squatting in the boy's room that night and I wasn't about to be involved in anything else. I considered not flying home for Vanessa's sake. But I knew she would be fine. I had to come home. I am glad I did because I just talked to the girls and sure enough-there was plenty of crappy things that happened. I know if I had been there it would not have been any different- I would have somehow been dragged in.

    Eventhough the last few hours of the trip sucked, I still had a great time. I finally went with a girl who likes to gamble and drink as much as I do. I feel really bad for Gina because the guy DID kind of screw her over a bit. I will be the shoulder to cry on for the next couple days. I guess she really did put herself in a bad position though. But I am done analyzing it...

    Hope you enjoyed this. I am SURE I left out somethings that I don't remember but... I guess somethings are meant to be left in Vegas...

    My head hurts. I feel hungover. Crab dip after a night of champagne. I feel sick. Yard Margaritas and Jello shots and hurricanes and grey goose and crown royal.

    Oh to be young again! ;)

    Finding 4 blacks and $300 in your purse---cool [​IMG]

    I don't think my head or stomach could handle the plane home. :(

    I can speak from experience when I agree that champagne drunks are more unpleasant than most other kinds. And never, never mix champagne with milk (mudslides). There's some real bad juju going on there.

    I'm glad you had the chance to (mostly) enjoy yourself Typhinie, and get away from the stress of taking care of your mom and school. Everyone needs a break every now & then!

    Ahhh...to be young and beautiful (and not JUST beautiful like me) and in Las Vegas. That must have been some wicked Champagne to have floored the queen of Las Vegas nightlife.

    GREAT TR!!! Aside from the drama, you had a great time. Champagne is the worst!! I would have thrown up too. You and Vanessa should make a trip together, I'm sure the two of you would have a blast. I say this all the time, but I LOVE CARNIVAL COURT!! I did a booty shaking contest there. I'm glad you had a great time. Fabulous Typh, just fabulous! [​IMG]

    Did you visit the guy with the blue cooler, who hangs out downtown around the Plaza on Main Street?

    edited to add: Just kidding.... [​IMG] good report.

    I'd be dead with that much booze running thru my system, but then I'm over 40...not a young nimble thing like you. :D I'm glad it was a better time than the 3rd Wheel Trip in March.

    Your gonna be a legend here soon with all the booze you can consume and still look out for your buddies. That's the sign of a true friend.

    Nice report. I would have been zoning on the whole midget in the tux too. I would have been rolling!

    So where is Fat Tuesdays? MGM? I have been trying to figure a way to get Jello shots to Vegas without them melting. But if they have some there we will be good to go this trip.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Take one raging Typh, add a bunch of booze, some bright lights and bells, one borderline personality, a night club, and some vomit, and it makes for an entertaining TR.

    Thanks for sharing, Typh! [​IMG]

    Thanks for another memorable TR Typh [​IMG]

    Good move taking the phone away from your friend. I get kind of like her when I get drunk. If I ever meet you I'll tell you about the time I tried to call the cops because my friend was cheating on his girlfriend while we were on vacation in Florida.
