    My Trip Report

    Helloooooooo again motherf&@^#^rs!!!! Well, its that time once again. Boarding for my flight to Dallas begins just under 12 hours from now, and as usual, I'm still not packed, but I'm going to this place called Las Vegas for the first time in over 6 months. 6 months! (6 months and she dumps me for him! For Stalin, just like that!) (At least someone here will get that)

    Welcome to part three of the insanity trilogy, sponsored in part by novel corona virus. There may be prequels, postquels, or Nyquils, at a later date, but this is part 3 of what is to be, at least for now, a trilogy.

    I think this is the greatest number of airplane tickets I've ever bought for one trip. Three different round trips on Delta ending in a refund, and I'm now on my 3rd American trip, that according to my app (knock on wood) is allegedly going to fly in the morning. I'm departing Florida at 8AM. I'm not toooo excited about that. I had a choice between departing at 8AM, or not. So I went with the 8AM flight. Layover and plane change in DFW, then on to LAS scheduled for 11:57 arrival.

    Headed to Caesars Palace for the first portion of my trip. Very unsettled about the crowd that may be there after they moved guests over from 2 other properties sorta last minute. I cancelled a couple comp nights at Cosmo after seeing a few too many large groups of non-distancing people on the YouTubes and social media, but still going to run over there early one morning to check out Wicked Spoon brunch and burn some free play. Also opted to pay for a couple days at Bellagio and I'm really looking forward to that. Should be a really nice room there too. Hopefully Caesars is ok. At least I'll have a nice room if the casino vibe is outside my comfort level.

    I think between me and @luck.ofthe.draw we have about eleventeen dinner reservations, so there will be food. And shenanigans. And gambling. And fun! Oh, and drinking! And limousines! And if I can get them, airplane mimosas! And 3 hand pays! Oh and I feel like I probably need to use that cake ATM over at Harrah's at some point!


    I gotta figure out how to pack all these clothes, plus the ones in my garment bag in to these suitcases. Anyone pro at Tetris?!?

    Also, my poor dog, I think, has just realized I'm packing for a trip. Thankfully he's not as bothered by fireworks as most dogs!

    20200701_172456.jpg

    So with that, I need to make and consume dinner, then finish packing, so I'll leave you with this song performed by E.G. Daily, who also plays the voice of a character on a show called Powerpuff Girls, and I'm told that character's name is.... Buttercup!

     
    Havent booked this yet but already paid for the flight. It'll happen.
    Giving thanks in style again!

    The story I got from both Delta and American (granted Delta was a few weeks ago) was that you can still get drinks in first class, just not before takeoff and they arent coming around d with carts so you have to ask for them.

    Truly a sight to behold
    A man beaten
    The once great champ
    Now, a study in mopishness
    No longer the victory hungry stallion we've raced so many times before.

    Good luck, Mac! We can't wait for you to deplane, "...and the lights, TURN GREEN!"

    Some of those are actually outgoing from Biloxi trip a few weeks ago and not coming to Vegas. I think 4, possibly 5, including the ones I wear on the plane.

    Mostly done packing. 5. 5 pairs of shoes. One day I'll learn to coordinate a whole trips worth of outfits that go with either black or brown shoes, and not a couple or few of each. But not today.

    It is in the suitcase, but I have mostly outfits geared more toward bowties. But I may wear it out of superstition anyway, because I did pretty well last time I wore it!
