After 6 straight weeks of unrelenting process failures, just everyday things that all of a sudden just could not go smoothly, jetted from MHT to LAS this morning for 5 nights at THEhotel and 5 nights at Caesars. Went right: on my way home from work yesterday, a T-bone accident right in front of me. Not involved. Went right: Bought the SWA ticket in December with early bird, for a different itinerary. Checked in yesterday and got B4 B4! are you shittin' me? But, got the golden seat and middle seat was empty. Flight pushed off on time, flight time was 4:55, which is awesome. Went wrong: got a sedan at the airport, told the driver I wanted to stop at the Vons on Tropicana on the way to the hotel. I was thinking of the Vons at Maryland & Tropicana; he was thinking of the one in Santa Monica CA. Went right: So we're a couple of miles west of the strip and I spy an Albertson's. "Albertson's will do," I say. Load up, head for the hotel, get there within the 1 hr. $43 + tip, about the same a cab would've been, cheaper than a rental car. I actually had a Vons delivery scheduled, but then they decided not to deliver on the 4th, and the website wouldn't let me cancel the order (see process fuckups referenced above). Went right: The lone guy at VIP check in said my reservation set up was for the front desk, but didn't kick me out, lol. Went wrong: didn't get the room I wanted. I probably could have waited and gotten a better room, but I had perishables that needed to go into a fridge. I think this was originally a slow week, but a couple of events got moved or added that I think upped the occupancy. Room's fine, I usually have a V suite, but it comes at the expense of storage space, so it's a tossup. The view I have sucks. Went down and signed for front money. Three craps tables working, two, count 'em, two of em were $5. Getting organized to hit the casino. Hoping to run into shifter and/or Natedogg at some point, although from the sounds of their trip reports, it may not be at MGM.
