There have been so many great live TR lately I'm rather intimidated. But, I am go solo and don't want to rub it in to my Vegas going friend who couldn't go because of a graduation. So I'm going to share with Iike minded people who can roll their eyes when they read it and I will never know. It will be fairly boring compared to most. I'm writing this as a public service to assist those with insomnia. I go almost every year at this time for my birthday. I am not fond of birthday parties and all the hoopla so I do what I want and avoid the pointy hats. This is the big 60 so I'm doubly mortified. But we are all getting older at the same rate so I guess I'm relatively no older than anyone else. (Don't argue, its helping me cope). 8:30AM flight Tues, arrive at 12:30. Three nights comp, hoping to buy a reasonable upgrade. Two buffets courtesy of myVEGAS. Not a fan of buffets but am a fan of free. Damn freeplay is off the table. Also have myVegas Love ticket. I've seen it before but not for years. Will stick close to home and just gamble and eat. I eat very healthfully at home and behave myself by pretending to be a wine snob. Carbs, booze and general crap food are almost as exciting as the gaming. I actually packed potato chips. I'm looking forward to tons of gambling, having a prolonged buzz and eating bad food. I actually think I had the same goals on almost every birthday since 21. At least I'm consistent. I've been obsessed for months. I just started a digital decorating business after being outsourced from corporate America and spent the past month making things for myself rather than for sale. Oops. I'm attaching some pics. I hope to update nightly but no promises. Not a great picture taker but will try.
