    My Trip Report

    Don't call it a comeback. I've been here for years.


    [video=youtube;vimZj8HW0Kg]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vimZj8HW0Kg[/video]


    Hi, I'm TriggerMN, and I'm a Vegasholic. It's been three and a half months since my last trip.


    I wish my life would have been status quo in the past 100 or so days, but I've had some big life swings. Some of the greatest moments of my life have occurred, but they have been evened out by some of the worst. Fortunately, my wife geotwink has been a rock star through everything, and I owe her everything for being a huge support and an outstanding companion. The least I can do is take her to Vegas again.

    We've got a late arrival at Planet Hollywood tonight, and will gamble a few hours upon arrival. Tomorrow I'll get up early to watch the NCAA games and place bets. (Can you believe the endings of the UNI-Texas and St. Joe's-Cincy games last night!?!?!?)

    It's our first trip as CET diamond members, so we've got to decide which joint to use our $100 dining credit and which free show to see while we're in town. Other than that, we've got $100 in free play at Paris thanks to the GGWU points I was able to cash in during my last trip.

    Geotwink is also looking forward to exploring the diamond lounges, and I think we're going to head to Cosmo to experience the Verbena for the first time. Other than that, we'll go where the wind takes us. C'mon and take a free ride!

    Not much to report last night. Played WOnder Woman, Cleo, Davinci, and poker. Nothing worth a picture. Here is the view from our room though:

    Nice hit! I get in tonight, and am in town through Thursday. I'm from Saint Paul, but currently at school in Colorado.

    Shoot me a message if you'd like to meet up for drinks or anything!

    Lost a whopping $3 at craps this morning, then hit a nice bonus on Monopoly for a $160 profit. Then went to my ATM and hit a spin on the first pull.

    So-so. My mouth felt like it was foaming up after eating the flower bud, but it didn't really change the taste of the tequila to me. Geotwink said it felt similar to having an allergic reaction.
