    My Trip Report

    As tantalizing as the title is, I doubt it will live up to its name. It's been awhile since I've done a trip report, so why not give it the old college try once more.

    Heading out at O-dark thirty this morning to meet up with some of the old crew from the March Madness days... plus a few board moderators and admins. It's been about a year since a lot of us have seen each other, but I'm going to try to highlight some of the good part... and probably a lot of the bad. Though I do love to post random quotes said during the trip that always put a smile back on my face years later. More importantly, it's just going to be good to get the band back together

    Taking United this morning to Chicago then onto the promised land. I've got my exit row seat to Chicago then moving up to the front of the bus for the 4ish hour flight to Vegas. I hope they have enough vodka...

    In any case, the tray tables are up and the seat backs are in their upright positions...

    Boys and girls...
    Giddy up!

    Cocktail service isn't too bad on United today. Nothing like a stiff vodka cranberry to get the necessary vitamins and minerals to get your heart going.

    After the 2am text messages from the first group with boots on the ground, I'm rather disappointed my return texts have gone unanswered... then again, it is like 7am out there.

    Lyft is running a 50% special during the week so that was an easy choice.

    Got checked into Cosmo and I asked nicely about any room with a terrace. They had some terrace studios available for a $95 per night upgrade or a wraparound terrace for $95. Well duh...

    Meeting up with the girls and I'm pretty sure there's a liquor store run coming up.

    Barely got in the room with them though and I hear:
    "I've gotta take a shower to get man spit out of my hair"
    "It's so big, I put people in the hospital"

    I'm way to sober for this...

    That's the beauty of these random quotes.

    Can't wait to hear about the S&M! In my neck of the woods, that's short for spaghetti and :feedme: meatballs!

    Party on!

    Thanks for following along you all. This group of people are always a blast to do Vegas with and, more times than not, we will sit around and the most random things come out of someone's mouth. And there are just enough dirty minds that turn those comments into something else.

    Famous last words...

    VegasDrea and I headed downstairs to Holsteains for some lunch. I had the intention of getting a milkshake with some booze in it, but their options looked like they would put me into diabetic shock. I opted for a beer and the Nom Nom burger, just because I liked the name. Just catching up with Drea was worth the overpriced and just OK burger and fries.

    After lunch, we decided to just run across the street to Walgreens and pick up some booze. Prices look to have gone up since my last visit as I remembered a fifth of Jack Daniels Honey was $28+ before and it's $31 now. I ended up getting the big bottle which ended up being a mistake...

    Got back to the room and took a shot then stashed the booze in the freezer because cold booze is just better. Head downstairs to play some video poker and find out that a lot of games as well as the Identity Club systems were being upgrade (read down.) Played for a little while and only got one decent hand.

    Though I'm kinda depressed they no longer carry Blue Moon, but a Shock Top will do in a pinch.

    Meet up with everyone and get a message from Drea about Carnaval Court. Before heading down I take everyone up to my room to look at the view and so I can get some of my JDH goodness.

    Next thing I remember is waking up this morning in bed, fully clothed with my shoes still on and that bottle of JDH completely empty...

    Needless to say, I think I'm gonna slow play it today...

    Getting ready for the evening and "recovering" all day. From all accounts I've heard so far, I was in rare form late last night. I believe someone said I'd probably not be able to run for the Senate now...

    Anyway, the party is going to be starting up my room soon as everyone is swinging by to pregame and celebrate Beach Crazy's birthday. Other than that, no idea where the night is going to lead us, but I suspect there will be lotsa booze and a lot of inappropriate comments. Looking forward to it!
