    My Trip Report

    WARNING.. SOME BAD WORDS and BAD BEHAVIOR!!!!!!!

    Thursday 9:00 am the 12. Wake up.. In shock. the day has arrived. Spent most of the day on couch waiting to leave. Couldn't function. Too excited.
    The five of us girls spent most of the day calling each other. " are you leaving yet?"
    Get to the airport at 2:00. I'm on time as usual the rest slowly show up. Say adios to hubby and son. One last kiss. Turn around as they leave and GRIN!!!!!! :D SIN CITY BABY!!! here i come. Go through the usual holy !@#$!@#$ we're going and then change into our HOTSUFF and ROCKSTAR hoochie shirts we bought just for the plane ride. Proceed through customs and get totally molested. That damn wand beeped more than an episode of cops in LA. Finally get the go ahead and off to the lounge. BEERS... QUICK... NOW.. three of those gulped down and we're on the plane. We are in row 16 all five of us in our stupid shirts and some sweet nice guy in the 6th seat. Take off 10 minutes early leaving Edmonton, AB at 4:20 pm. In the air the drinks are coming and before the hostess gets to the back of the plane we are flagging down the next one for more. Finally one of the hostess's gets on the mic and says " okay, lets get the gambling started" (gotta love westjet) The game is plane seat bingo or something like that. Everyone puts a loonie in the cup. 125 loonies go in and in a few minutes the announcement is made. " and the lucky winner is in row 16.." SWEET!!!!!!!!! we all start hollering VIVA WESTJET and then it came. loud and clear.. BUT.............. the winning seat is A.. we had B C D E F.. GRRRRRRRRRRRR. So lucky guy wins the 125 bucks. She hands him the cup of cash so his name is now CASH CUP and he feels bad so he says " a round for the ladies"... YIPEEE. Thank you CASH CUP.. A few more drinks go down and we're blitzed when we land in Vegas 20 minutes early.. YIPPEEE. Some confusion and embarrasment as we stagger around with our suitcases and off to the shuttle.

    We are heading to the Imperial Palace. Mikey says it best. The Vanerial Palace but we made a slight modification and dubbed it the vanerial outhouse. Man that place stunk bad. We check in fine and we all lost it when the lady says we are on the 16th floor.. LUCKY 16 we all yell.
    Up we go to the 16th floor. We push the elevator button at 7:10 and got to our room sometime sunday it seemed like.. How slow can an elevator be? After unpaking and disinfecting we head down to the strip.
    We head accross to Ceasars. find the Austin powers slots and put just enough nickels in for the waitress to bring a few rounds. Then we head over to the forum shops and find some dingy deli and we all order some BLT's. These things had about 5 lb's of bacon on them. We all bitch about the fact that this meal cost us $11.00 with the exchange. We proceed to leave and all we could hear was CRUNCH CRUNCH from all the bacon that fell on the floor.
    We look for the roman guys like joey on friends but no luck. Do they actually exist? oh well. We head off to the Mirage. Some more slots and some drinks. None of us are rollers let alone high rollers so when ever we got 10 credits we would cash out just to hear the coins clink. We are starting to stagger and getting really abnoxious so we leave and make our way down to the Bellagio. Cruise through there yelling oooohhhh ahhhhhhh.. wowwwwwww... people must have thought we took the tour with the short bus.. getting thirsty again so we find some italian gelati thing and get the grapefruit one.. The lady at the till speaking italian says something like $8.00.. I say Pardon? She repeats and I realize That i'm about to pay $8.00 for something that would cost 99 cents at 7-11.. Lesson learned... If you see a PRADA boutiqe..... don't buy a slurpie.
    Needless to say, the $8.00 slurpie was trashed. It was nasty. So I'm really pissed about that. We slowly wind our way back to the outhouse and call it a night after a few porn jokes relating to the decor of our room. Can you even buy bamboo furniture these days?

    Day two.. VIP BABY

    Woke up at 7:00 am and LL was up too. We decide to be nice and go to Treasure Island to get some Krispy Kremes and coffee for the girls. I wish we knew that there was a KK at Venetian. Oh well. We sit down by the pool at TI and marvel at the nice digs. We make our way back to the outhouse and wake up the gang. We decide to walk down to the fashion show mall. After being in Victoria's Secret for four hours we hoof it back to the room. Try on the new threads and decide we DEFINATELY need to show off the new rack. We get dressed and head down to Tequila joes for one of those insane mudslides. WOW.. as we make our way to the MGM We are looking like a million bucks but talking like white trash. Those mudslides really mess you up. We get into the MGM and sit down at some slots. Plunk in a few rolls and wait............ wait........... wait.. Couldn't get a drink. Waited some more.. Finally Stand up and start yelling like we won big time high fiving and all that and sure enough.. there she was and we go.. oh shit... oops. thought we won.. but she got us drinks anyway as LL was spinning like mad.
    After a few jokes and some drinks we make our way to the lineup for studio 54. We finally get in and after picking up our jaws up off the floor we get some more drinks. Colorado Bulldogs. OMG.. They were potent. We head upstairs and can barely stand when DADDY WARBUCKS comes over and asks for a dance. We decide to amuse him for a while hoping for some drinks in payback. Sure enough.. We get a few rounds. Next thing i know LL is dragging me out the door and some huge guy is slapping on a wristband. WHAT THE ???????? Turns out TH was talking to the guy that plays AJ on the Sopranos. HOLY CRAP. He asked if she and her friends would like to join him in the VIP room.. HELLO!!!!!!!!..
    So there we are. In the VIP room. This kind of thing just doesn't happen where we live. We're eating sandwhiches or I am at least. Chatting it up and having a blast. I'm soooo plastered that I don't even know who the guy is that let us in but I'm thanking everyone there.
    We Fall out of the elevator to the MGM casino and proceed to walk gracefully through the floor but to no avail. We looked like a pack of dingos. We couldn't even walk. Some Spanish speaking disco intruder came up to my friends and all he could say in English was" You like a da blackjack? i'm a lucky a man" He was grabbing them and saying you like a da black jack over and over. a real slime ball. He wouldn't get the hint so LL said " We are gay.. Lesbionos!!!"(no offense to anyone) and they ran out the front door. Somehow we made it back to the IP and didn't care there how we looked and as LL was walking through the table area pinching all the mens butts, I was yelling HOW YOUUUUUUU DOIN and TH was trying to keep her dress up. I think she broke a strap.. We find the elevators and five hours later wind up on the 16 floor. As we try to get the stupid key in the door we hear "hey ladies" and we turn around. Some slime balls were video taping us all the way through the IP..
    Nice. Now we'll be on americas funniest Videos and Americas most wanted.

    Saturday the 14.

    9:00 am... woke up..... OUCH.... [​IMG] grabbed some hangover helper and went back to bed... no luck.. I'm awake and soon so is LL. We slowly try to stand up and quietly head downstairs to bettys cafe for some strong coffee and 7 day old muffins.
    Later we went back and the rest of the crew were up. After some moaning and false alarms on the toilet we head over to dennys for some food.. yuck.
    We start to feel human again and try to do some stuff of the strip. We worked our way up to the Aladin and Paris and Monte Carlo I think. We ended up back in Victorias secret. did some shopping, ate a ridicuously priced burger and talked about the night before. We needed to hear from each other what we did that night. Thank god we were all behaved.. somewhat.

    Later that day we worked our way down to the pool at the IP. This bathtub with two dwarf palm trees didn't do it for us so we just went back to the room to try to get ourselves ready for the third night.

    With a little help and a whole lot of makeup we managed to look decent enough to head over to the hardrock to try our luck there. Hung around the casino, played a few slots put a couple 10's on 16 on the roulette and lost. Then it's off to stand in line for Babys.. Thinking we're all that from the night before we joke that we could wind up in the VIP room there..
    We get in and pay $8.00 a drink. That to us is nuts. The most we've ever payed at home is $4.00.. So we slowly drink those and take turns sitting on the only seat we could find, the arm rest of a couch. Then, LL comes back and says.. Hey guys guess what.. and There it is.. The Pink wristband.. WE'RE IN!!!! Two for two!!! off we go to the VIP ROOM. This time it was a little more nuts. More people and a lot more money floating around. We get a table and help ourselves to the drinks. Two of the girls get indecent proposals for some gambling with a nother Daddy Warbucks. After a little negotiation, we tell them to play at their own risk. Off they go.. We stayed and had a hoot watching some chics high on something get it on with what ever they could find. Then to two now HIGH ROLLERS come back and say hey guys look.. They are each holding two Benjamins in their hands.
    DOHHHHHHHHHHHH.... Daddy warbucks gave them two hundred just for coming out.. NICE...
    We get a little tired and think we should leave. It's about 3:00am.. We hit the casino for one last chance to spot the Celebs that night and wind up at the roulette tables. Some highrolling texans are going nuts. One guy holds up 10 purple chips and says " how much?" I say bet it all and he goes okay then do it.. he hands me the chips and I ran like hell.. Just kidding. I place them on 16 convinced that is our lucky number and, well, I was wrong. Waiting to be screamed at, he goes " ouch that hurt" and he does it again. I say no thanks. I'm staying at the IP and I'm really unlucky cause of it and he laughed and we said goodbye.
    Got back to the room around 5:00.. fell asleep. no hassles this time. and little damage to the casino floors.

    Sunday last day.
    woke up and packed. Checked the bags with the sad old men in the baggage storage room and decided we should really do something las vegas. So we walked up and down, went to all the major hotels, rode the rollercoaster at NYNY.. that thing should be shut down. The overall design is fun and a great ride but my eyeballs were still spinning from the shaking of the thing. It is way toooo rough.. really rickety and thats not something I like on a coaster. Bought the silly pictures they give you. My face looks like i'm melting and LL looks like she's taking a crap. funny stuff. Had a late lunch at Planet Hollywood. The Highrollers of the bunch decided to finally share the wealth and pay the bill with the money from daddy. Woopty DOO.. with the coupons we had already it was only 18.00 bucks. oh well, more money for the slots
    we went to the Vinetian and walked around there. Man that place is awesome. I'd love to stay there sometime. Bought some flats of donuts for the boys at home and then went to the IP to catch the shuttle.
    Got to the airport and checked in. Security there was way easier. No hassles. I got a kick out of the guys at the baggage check trying to identify the different donuts as the box went through the detector. "thats a boston cream, thats a rainbow sprinkle" too funny.
    Went to grab some seats at gate 3 and bumped into CASH CUP. He had a great trip and came out ahead 800.00 bucks. NICE..
    The flight home sucked bad. Way too tired, and lots of turbulance.. arrived 20 minutes late and got home at 3:00am..

    summary:
    gambling -50.00.. don't gamble much.
    food, nothing but crap. should have had more buffets. the Treasure Island dinner buffet was pretty good. and not to expensive. 12.99
    drinks: too many... too pricy. thank goodness for the friendly guys!!!
    hotel: Should be turned into an animal shelter or burned down. the one good thing was that we had some quality humor staying there.
    and the location. great!!!!

    Shows: the only show we managed to see was Big Elvis.. he is great. Really talented. I wish we could have seen more but, the group just wasn't up to it.

    NYNY rollercoaster: great design. Really neat to wind around the hotel but way too bumpy.. really rough.

    All in all, It wasn't the trip I had hoped for. I wanted to do some more vegas type things like shows and gambling. We shopped to much and drank too much at night. didn't get to see Freemont street. i really hope to go back soon. Have to talk to hubby... Maybe go back this thursday?? hee hee..
    VEGAS WAS GREAT.. but half the time we asked ourselves Where are we? oh ya Vegas.. duhhh...

    Great report, Sounds like you had a blast! You lucked out with the VIP passes. AJ, really? Gotta love the Daddy Warbucks guys, I had one approach me in Bellagio...Too funny.

    Don't worry about the things you missed, it just gives another reason to make a return trip. [​IMG]

    Glad you liked the report. I was worried that everyone would think we were idiots for not doing more Vegas type things. We did have a blast. As for the AJ thing. I can't remember seeing him ( too many bulldogs) but my four friends swear it. And somebody we talked to the next day did say that he was there. So who knows. I'm getting my pics developed tomorrow.. Maybe he's in there. Would be neat.. But We'll just pretend for now it's true!!! hee hee
    I'm already trying to get some brownie points with hubby for a possible return trip in the spring. Maybe we can party together!!! Get in some VIP rooms!!! I'd like to try my luck at the rum jungle!!! make it three for three!!!
    Have fun everyone

    LOL! Great trip report. Unfortunately, Daddy Warbucks always says to me, "Excuse me, ma'am.. I think you dropped your coupons." :D [​IMG]

    Has it really been that long since I was a hottie? I guess it has. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Christmas is any day I get to go to Vegas. Start the "donate to Sticky's Vegas trip"fund web page (maybe Mikey could help you out with the logistics) and Christmas may come in march...
