    My Trip Report

    Having realized that love for Mondays alone is not enough to rise very far in the Guild of Calamitous Intent (and without the means to buy my way in like that St. Cloud guy), I decided to meet some of my barely villainous compatriots (including that St. Cloud guy) in Vegas to rob the place. Augustus is indeed en route now and Ted (of the OCLF) and myself will be meeting him tomorrow at the Gold Coast for a night before our weekend descent on downtown. Many plans have been made, we'll see how many are followed, but no matter what f***ing happens...we're doing shots.

    We'll see if my partners in piss poor villainy also choose to share our exploits here (and I'm hoping they do), but I have a brown belt in tapatalk and hope to keep you civilians current. I'm already checked in and eagerly waiting my 11am flight tomorrow (I declined to change seat, as 1D seemed pretty good already). But since I'm on vacation already...cheers!

    Took me 4.5 hours but I made it despite the rare rain storm. Finally out ran it after Kingman. Note to self: Get new wipers. I'm going to have that time machine looked at. It seems to be stuck on a 1 minute:60 second ratio. Listened to "You can bet on that" podcasts to pick up any pointers and drown out the monotony. A couple of funny Crap stories where stupid players blame everything under the sun for the 7 showing up. It's a good podcast if you like gambling.

    Off to knock back a few Buds and arch Billy Quiz Boy.

    Having just left the gymnasium of the local community college where I submitted final exam grades, it is now time to officially start vacation.

    Unable to secure a plane of my own, I booked a flight on Southwest Airlines. Southwest just implemented a new reservation system today. Early reports indicate no issues, but there are rumblings of Southwest being loosely affiliated with Spirit. Loosely. I scored an A boarding pass and will depart for Vegas in just about 24 hours.

    As fellow guild member Mister Monday mentioned, our first stop will be Gold Coast. Unfortunately, Gold Coast features a TGI Fridays rather than a very pleasant Applebee’s. Debbie and I met at Applebee’s. Therefore, we’ll likely venture stripward for food. Just nothing with honey. In addition to being a vegan, do you know what honey Bizzy Bee produces? Destruction!

    Anyways, we’re just normal men with jobs in Vegas for a few days. Since Debbie won’t be with us, I’m hoping good bartenders like Alen at QQQQ and Ronnie at Boar’s Head will supply us with more juice. And by juice I mean shots.

    PPP pics. Much needed bigger space. They let you wear pj's with prior approval. Haven't found anyone to say when it's open.

    Anybody play Big Split Poker? Don't play smashed or you throw away better paying hands.
    Most of the time you have to put the better multiplier down low.

    Played VP at the South Bar because I am no stranger to paying $22 for one bottle of Bud.

    4 Queens. Omen?

    Turned $20 into $100 faster than I can drink 4.8 Budweisers. Hands like this didn't hurt.

    Turn that $100 into an inordinate amount of money.

    Damn, keep that up and you'll be able to finally afford the red ball from that one Duran Duran music video you're always talking about.

    Turn to ESPN. 30 for 30 has the Bartman one on. Awesome.

    I'm drinking for three now. I'm gonna keep an extra eye on my camera.
