    Lots of folks do a pre trip report, but I'm going to share my goals with you in the hopes it may help me stick to them...

    1. I will not sleep on the bathroom floor no matter how cold and close to the toilet that floor may be.

    2. I will not break any toes or other bones while running for said toilet.

    3. I will stay up past 9pm.

    4. I will not puke in public. This includes restrooms.

    5. I will not eat more than one Stage Door hot dog a day.

    6. I will not chase $1 ddb with $5 ddb (maybe boner deluxe, but not ddb).

    7. I will not drink green slop poured into my mouth by a little person on a bar. I miss you O'Shays.

    8. I will not take my vp wins to the roulette table to bet on 13, 19, 22, 23, and 27.

    9. I will not pay $100 for a drink. Sometimes it's just cheaper to buy them than play bad games at the bar.

    10. I will not spend all my budget the first night.

    This is a pretty comprehensive list. More like my 10 commandments than goals... But it keeps me on track.

    Wish me well. We leave on Friday and will be home Wednesday night.

    Beth

    Loved the list...especially had to laugh at #1! That is my issue and my husband just asks that I don't sleep on the bathroom floor.:beer:

    Wow. Not at all what I was expecting but these are good realistic goals.

    2 years ago while staying at rio I woke up in the middle of the night needing to go to the bathroom (thankfully not to vomit)...
    while stumbling around in the dark I managed to wedge my foot under the couch taking a patch of skin off the top of my foot...That fucker hurt so bad the next day and got really irritated from walking around. Best part is, I did it again the next night on the other foot...

    I know the list makes me sound like a real drunk. The problem is I don't drink in "real" life so it doesn't take much to reach my drunk point.

    The plan is drink, water, soda, drink to keep any of those things from happening.

    I actually made most of those goals this past weekend. Sadly, not all of them.

    I want to know what "boner deluxe" poker is. That sounds rather interesting.

    You clearly need to read Beejay's trip report.

    So, you're going to bet on 12, 18, 21, 24 and 26?

    Yeah, I'm not allowed to lay on the bathroom floor by the toilet anymore either. I think what my husband was getting at with that rule was the heavy drinking that necessitated the laying on the bathroom floor.

    #3 has a tendency to give me a lot of trouble during my solo trips. The problem is that I'll start drinking at like 10am with brunch/lunch, have some untold quantity of vodka sodas while I'm playing all day, then I'll have a martini at 8pm and everything catches up to me really, really suddenly.

    If you read my last TR...I did #1 after trying #4 on my April trip. Don't recommend either. Was not fun. :beer:

    I actually think Royal Flusher coined the term, but I could be mistaken.
    Anyway, it's bonus deluxe VP.

    If he didn't coin it, he certainly used it. Beejay's is just more recently in memory.

    Good Luck with your list.

    I am not sure if I am lucky or not but I normally fall asleep well before I reach the puke stage.

    I love that I can drink with breakfast and no one looks at you funny, but in my case starting early definitely puts me in the in bed before 9:00 camp with you.

    We are going this weekend also so If I see some random women puking in public I will have to ask if her name is Beth.

    Thanks for not making me feel like a degenerate. Vegas is fun, too much fun. That's why I love it so.

    Bonus Deluxe is a great game bc you get 400 coins for all 4oak. I do love double double though.

    We're no Beejay or Gaggles, but we have a great time.

    I will NOT be puking in public. That is the worst. I no longer drink any of those sweet slushy drinks. I stick with vodka, mostly espresso martinis and that hasn't happened again.

    We always try to do a trip report cause funny stuff happens during the day.

    Thanks for being kind.

    That was awesome - sleeping near the toilet is efficiency in action.
