    So I was just walking around Paris and went to the sportsbook bar because the line to MAG was kinda long. I sat down. Shuck $500 in the machine got a beer and tipped the man $5. I go crushed of course because what else would I do on this trip. I was slowly playing my last $20 while I was trying to get the bartenders attention. He never looked at me. Went both sides and just passed me by while I had another $5 bill out. I thought the 5 wasn't good enough but others were tipping $1-2. It took the guy next to me ordering a beer and saying "this guy was waiting too" and then I got another drink. I put $2200 through the machine for 2 drinks and $10 in tips.

    Am I cursed? Wtf?

    Got a seat at MAG

    Just cooling off and people watching at one of my favorite spots on the strip. I’ll be back. Just needed to find a happy place. But a friend who has never visited Vegas will come with me during the next week no worries. And I’ll take proper pictures

    Enjoying your report. Hubby has been on a present and past college FB binge. I was reading your report shortly before kick-off so we sought your game out and watched and rooted for you because of your report. Alas, it did not help but we tried. Wishing you better luck ahead in everything you do.

    After the wins I went to play VP and farm some drinks at a bar.

    No wins but I'm up for the day so that's nice. Also 1123 tier credits earned before 1pm. Not too shabby. Gonna find some lunch and potentially a place to watch the Browns game. I'm thinking Harrahs

    Attention. Attention. I have visuals on a DJ Wild table at both Flamingo and Harrahs. We gonna be stupid tonight.

    Also have a colleague from a project a long time ago who contacted me and I'll be meeting up with her and her partner.

    Then probably gamble a little after that and then roommate #1 arrives! Who just happened to have a conference this week. So he might be a little busy during the day but whatever.

    Plus they are playing a song I haven't heard in years but was a part of the college party pregame Playlist. Today is a good day and we're just getting started. Feeling it!
