    My Trip Report

    I'm terrible at trip reports because I never remember what we did day to day so I'm taking a page out of BeeJay's book and I'll try to do it ongoing. Admittedly I'm hoping to not have as many problems as he did. :)

    Trip consists of me and hubby who is here for a convention (builders) and I am here to loaf. Oh, and the "lucky jewelry piece" that my 4 year old gave my hubby. I'm her favorite so I was a little outdone that he got the lucky piece. (it is a gold chain type zipper pull that fell off of something a long time go)

    We haven't been here for 12 hours yet but I have a feeling this might be a weird trip. Flew in from New Orleans on Southwest. 24 drink coupons to be used. HA! We were chatting over something on one of our phones and ended up with a seat empty between us. Hubby was worried he'd have to sit next to a giant sweaty person and I said I'd sit in the middle if that happened but I'd also sit in the middle if a beautiful girl sat down next to him too. That's just how sweet I am. We laughed.

    On with the flight he's watching a movie in the aisle seat and I'm at the window listening to an audio book or watching a movie I can't remember. (told you my memory was miserable) All of a sudden there is a commotion next to hubby...I kid you not...there is a tall brunette with boobs and very flat belly standing there staring at him asking him to move over. He's trying to discombobulate himself from his movie and earbuds and I'm think where did this bitch come from? Seriously? We're 2 hours into a flight and NOW the imaginary beautiful girl comes to sit between us? He looks over at me like "WTF" and someone in the back calls to her and off she wobbles. Hubby leans over and gives credit to the lucky jewelry piece (LJP). HA! ass.

    We arrive early and deplane and are waiting for our luggage. The people filing in around us are all bitching about something. They are swapping stories and agreeing with each other, since they obviously have been to the same trauma. My ears prick...what's going on. I then hear some yelling...its a guy...he's screaming to "Abbie" that she's got his property and wants it back. Now the people around me are calling security and off he goes. I'm vertically challenged so can't really see what's happening. People are mumbling again and saying he should be put in jail. From what I gather he was on our flight and was an ass.

    Minutes go by and luggage is going by and there is another commotion and people are really pissed this time. Yelling Guy is of course yelling again that he has his luggage and if Abbie wants her luggage she'll have to get it herself and he's leaving now so good luck. etc etc. Low and behold it is the imaginary pretty girl from the plane with the boobs and belly! Now I don't dislike her for being drunk and trying to sit in my husbands lap but feel bad for her that this creep is yelling at her! Luckily there were like 50 guys on the plane that were only TOO HAPPY to help "Abbie" get her luggage off the belt. Whew! Disaster averted. :rolleyes2: As poor Abbie slunked off there were several women who were trying to talk her out of going with Yelling Guy. People around me were saying that supposedly he was a casino host. Who knows and I don't really care. I have a car to get.

    Pack into the shuttle and turn my phone on and hubby reaches for his and .... no phone! I call his phone and someone answers and says it is in the baggage claim office. Hubby again gives credit to the LJP.

    Get our car from Dollar and I think I was less scared signing my first mortgage than I was answering questions and signing for this stupid compact car! OMG! Hubby's licensee expired 12/31 (which we found out at the airport yesterday) so I'm driving around LV.

    Back to the airport and I drop him off at "passenger pickup" to get his phone. I get in a fight with the guy directing traffic. He kept telling me to drive but there was a guy in front of me backing up! This jackass obviously has never had to rent a car in Las Vegas! I roll my window down to tell him that I am going, however that car is FREAKING BACKING UP! He screams at me "JESUS CHRIST LADY...JUST DRIVE". This would not have happened had I been given the LJP!

    Arrive without incident at the Palazzo and check-in on 1 night expedia and 4 nights comp'd. No problem combining the ressies but we are charged the resort fee for each night, even the comp'd ones.

    It is 10:00 pm and we drop the luggage off in room and head back out for dinner at Dos Caminos. I have a splitting headache that I'd like to blame on Abbie but can't really see a way to do that. Poor girl has been through enough so I let her off the hook.

    Slept like a baby next to a snoring monster and woke up before the sun came up. It is supposed to rain all week. Have a cup of tea from Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and are heading to Bouchon for breakfast.

    Maybe Mon Ami Gabi for lunch after some meandering. I think we may head to the AES store? I am not sure of the name (mental note: pay more attention) but I'm told it is a HAM Radio Meca. Dinner tonight at Stripsteak I think. Have a rest.com coupon. We'll see how the day unfolds. As long as I don't look like a fool with my pants on the ground I'll be ok. (I hope hubby and I are not the only ones with this song stuck in our heads)

    I always hope I get the big boobed chicks to sit next to me on the plane :)

    Then again...I am single.

    Looking forward to the rest.

    Resort Fee

    :eek: The fee is $15.00 a night plus tax. And in looking through the post card I received about the Winter Wonderland offer I do see that it is mentioned in fine print with the other rules that most of us don't read-LOL.

    Just love your trip report and can't wait for the next chapter.

    Hope you hit a big one--but leave a little for me as I will be staying there for 2 nts in about 10 days.

    fun read

    I never get the girl next to me either. I even ask the people at the counter when checking in to make sure the pretty girl is next to me, which obviously means they hear "Put big, fat, sweaty, gaseous dude next to him."

    Was it your snoring monster you woke up next to or another one? We won't tell. After all, what happens on the Vegas Message Boards, never happened.

    I'm running late to pick up a friend who is flying in for the day to hang out with me but I wanted to check in. Lest you all think the debauchery has gotten me for good this time.

    Walked toward the V to go to Bouchon and hubby is thanking LJP yet again for the Christian Louboutin store being closed. We had breakfast at Bouchon which hubby kept slipping and calling Bichon (that's the kind of dog we have). Food was great. He had the ham and cheese with Pomme Frites. Best fries I think I've ever eaten. I had the smoke salmon which was as good as I remember. Simple dish.

    Tried to get a replacement Club Grazie card for hubby who left his at home, but no go with the expired license. Paris gave him one with no trouble whatsoever so we are not sure what's up with Grazie. He already has an account and the expired (by 18 days) license to show who he is. Tried a second time and still no go.

    Lunch was at Mon Ami Gabi (no Abbie to be had here) and there were too many carafe's of Frangria I think.

    Meandered over to City Center's Aria to look around. It is pretty but that whole freaking place is just too big. Beautiful though. Was going to meet friends here but it was raining and they stayed put at PHO. Headed back to P.

    Decided we'd use one of our 2 4 1 drink coupons and realized that because we booked only the one night with expedia our coupons expired that night! Well, we'll just have to use them all in one night! Had 2 4 1 drinks at Double Helix. Hubby ordered a bottle of sake and I ordered a black velvet which is Guinness Stout and champagne. It was not a good combo. The champagne made the Guinness taste almost metallic. However, the Louboutin store was now open! :) Found a pair of shoes for only $4965! Ha! Hubby asked if they drove or something for that price. Even if I had the money I'm not sure I'd pay $5k for a pair of shoes. I was lamenting what I would wear with them and Hubby suggested just skin. LOL Figures. Men just don't get it!

    Headed to Sushi Samba for another 2 4 1 beverage and decided to try some aps. We ordered the Samba juice which was definitely better than the Black Velvet. He ordered a seveche (they spell it with an "s") and I ordered Shishito which is grilled spicy peppers with sea salt and lime. Man, were these delish! The bartender had a vine tattoo at her colar bone which was cool looking. I mentioned it to hubby and he said it was a mole. We debated for a while, me of course knowing I was right. When she came over to see if we needed refills I noticed the mole which was actually a mole, but the reason I didn't notice it originally was becasue IT WAS ON HER BREAST that was running amuck out of her shirt. HA! Ass again. We are charging things to our room so when hubby paid and she asked for our room number, that sent him into a fit of giggles. :rolleyes2:

    Then met some friends down in the champagne bar and had a very rude waitress. We'd have stayed longer had she been friendlier.

    I love these live reports! You should have told hubby if he bought the shoes you'd parade your fanny around naked in them constantly! Hell I'd offer to vacuum naked in them:eek:

    Nice trip report! Can't wait to read more!

    BTW, were you looking at any of the Strass shoes at CL?? Or were they exotics?? I'm a CL lover as well and have yet to purchase any Strass as their hefty price tag leaves me thinking.."Hmmm...I could buy 5-6 pairs of CLs rather than just one at that price."...LOL! I hope you get to bring at least ONE pair home with you! Good luck!

    hahaha.....my wife agrees and we were laughing so hard at this the little spagetti guy woke up, sat up, laughed and fell back over fast asleep.

    BTW loving the report so far....the mole story was hilarious as well. Your husband sounds like my kind of guy. No one ever really picks up hot chicks on the flights do they??? Thats a guy fantasy/urban myth like strippers with a heart of gold (like in the Hangover) that never comes true, except in this case! CLASSIC!

    That is so weird about the Grazie card. It's not like they're giving you a credit card. What would have happened if he'd shown some other i.d. like his real credit cards? And his room key that they're allowing him to pay for with his real credit cards. The front desk must have let him use his DL to check in. Shaking my head at Grazie.

    Waiting to read more.

    I was thinking of going to try talking to a host and see if they might be able to do something. We have separate cards and we are staying on my card/name. They wouldn't let him use his CC for incidentals because of the ID thing. I had to use my AMEX. He's got other picture ID with him but that is like Sam's Club etc. It is silly though...I mean it is only a Grazie card.
