Did my laundry and packed my bags on Sunday ready for a four-night stay starting on Monday. Since I was going by myself and not planning on going anywhere fancy, I just brought casual clothes. I had one suitcase (check-in) and one camera bag (carry-on). I made sure I had my wallet, money, $1.4k winning sportsbook ticket, prophylactic, and VMB wristband packed. I did my on-line check-in to Southwest for my 1:30PM flight and got A47. I figured I’d get a lot of sleep so that I could stay out late the first night I got there but didn’t get to sleep until after 1:03AM. I woke up at around 8:09AM although I set my alarm for 8:21AM. I did my regular shit, shower, and shave routine. Then I packed my toiletries, did a couple of chores, turned off the home A/C, and got on the Gold Line light rail (station is across the street from where I live). I got to Union Station 15 minutes later, got on the Flyaway bus to LAX, and was there within 35 minutes. One hour to get to the airport; no traffic and no parking fees. Waited an hour to board, then off to Sin City for my one hundredth and some odd number trip. I took the shuttle and got lucky, I was last on the shuttle and first off. I went to Diamond check-in and switched my room from a pet-stay room to a non-pet-stay room. I didn’t want to find any presents left for me from the pet that stayed there before. I got my small bottles of water from the counter and off to my 20th floor Vista room closest to the north elevator. I took photos from my room. I didn’t have a polarizing filter so you may see some reflections off the window. I went to Walgreen’s to get my 2 gallons of water for $4 instead of paying $30 for that much water at the hotel gift shop. I tried to take a nap but couldn’t. So I ventured out to Mirage to get my brisket sandwich from Carnegie Deli. It was getting dark so all the sportsbook cashiers at CP were closed by the time I got there. I’ll cash my winning ticket the next day. After I got back to my room, I ate my sandwich. I was only going to eat half, but I was famished after not eating anything all day except a banana. Sandwich was OK. I liked Stage Deli better when it was in the Caesars Forum Shops, but it closed several years ago. Same with NYC, I liked Stage Deli better, but it closed there too. Then I was full, so I just laid myself on the bed. All of a sudden I opened my eyes, and it was after 4:12AM. Oh well, I had three more nights. I went back to sleep after un-inflating my bladder. The next day’s adventure to come shortly.
