    Too early for a beer? The hell you say.... Remember, make bad decisions, very bad ones.

    Yikes. It is battery pack time and the charger cord I bought is way too long. People gonna think I'm trying to jump rope or something.

    Obsessed with Happy 8s game since I discovered it a few months ago. Some pics. Cocktail service is fast or at least here. I had to mad dash to the bill breaking machine to get singles since I didn't think of it. Can you tell it's been 2 years and 2 months??? I'm rusty as hell!!!

    Hundred in, 65.99 as of this post.

    100 down. Cosmo stole my 100 bucks. Rude. Got 193 points in the process. Time for Myvegas run to get that 100 (or more) back!

    Get after it bud.
    Less than 3 weeks out myself, I can totally feel your energy and excitement from those loooooong months away from pure paradise.
    Next stop: several drinks and a cigar on the balcony to celebrate the handpay you're about to go find!!

    Also tried electronic craps. My bets were not going through. It took me a few plays to understand how it worked. It's definitely not like bubble craps which I enjoyed. Had my bets went through, I'd be even!!! Or up. Oh well. Still early in the trip!

    At Aria for stop 1 of 5 for MyVegas run!

    I like both (P prefers 1 BR, I'm also starting to appreciate the soaking tub, not a fan of the bench though.)

    For science,
    you could try opening the closet door where the router is and report back if it helps your wifi, won't make it much faster, but may make it less weak, and give you better coverage on the balcony.

    Tried for a solid minute to think up a joke to the effect of "... my ex used to say the same about me" :poke: but couldn't think of a good way to phrase it, so I'll just awkwardly half-make the joke like this :)

    Next time we're both in town let's flag down random people to ask them to hold the other end of the cord while one of us swings the cord and the other jumps rope, and see what happens :)

    In all seriousness, invest in a pack of the cord ties below. They're reusable (velcro-type attachment), and are great to contain excessive cord length such as what you're showing in the photo. They're also incredibly versatile for things besides cords, I actually linked a bunch of them together the other day to hold down a loose item that I didn't want to tip over.

    Most of you know I'm hearing impaired. This mask stuff can make communication difficult, since I depend on lip reading.

    I'm pleased to report that so far, so issues.

    At nyny now for stop 2 of 5 for free play

    I'm part of the weekend crowd. Getting in friday afternoon and leaving monday morning.

    The view of the strip from the runway never gets old.

    And what a room, looks awesome. You said floor 68, damn, how many floors are the regular rooms up to, till it gets to the penthouses?

    Nyny I turned 25 free play into 26 cash. Next is Excalibur then MGM Grand which I'm dreading because always the longest line. Then need to figure out dinner

    Cocktail service has been surprisingly very good so far. Not sure if because I'm on a slow day but it sure feels like 15 years ago which we know is saying something.

    There is no time in Vegas that isn't beer time. It's ALL beer time. Sounds like your vaca is everything you hoped it would be!
