    Some good hits, but nothing crazy. Pulling my weight after 30 hours awake so far thanks to time change. But I will say, those of you thinking of canceling trips - don't ! I'm at Mandalay now, it's a little quiet but otherwise feels like normal.

    Nice wins on the Buffalo. If your wins continue you may have to change back to your original 3 nights there and cancel Cosmo.

    So I'm a day and a half in of near constant slotting .... and I'm up about 100 bucks. Thrilled !! But it's been an interesting road there.

    Last night, I was absolutely wrecked after a day of flying and I ended up drinking way too much, without getting drunk though - it just made me more tired, but happy tired. After destroying the buffalos, I had dinner at strip steak- Colorado lamb was delicious !! Then I played blackjack switch for a couple of hours- had a nice time - also question - I smile when I'm in casinos, but I don't smoke at tables out of courtesy for other players and the dealer. Instead I take a break between shoes and go sit at a slot machine or something. Anyway, am I weird ? The dealer thought it was odd and made fun of me many times, all in good fun of course.

    Suddenly the alcohol and sleepiness hit me like a ton of bricks, so I cashed out up $250 and said "I'm too drunk and tired to play this game, all I can handle is slot machines right now." I then went so on tilt it was ridiculous - all my favorite games were robbing me blind. Within an hour or two I think I lost almost $800 playing $3 bet slots. Then finally I got this sweet $600 on dancing drums when I selected mystery pick bonus and got max spins and max lines. I blew $100 of it then called it a night around 2am - 33 hours after I woke up.

    I only slept about 5 hours last night, but feeling much better. I got take out breakfast from whatever Mandalay Bay renamed the breakfast joint to and multitasked by eating the eggs Benedict while taking a bath. Pretty awesome. Then I headed to the wave pool and swam for about an hour before checking out. Definitely wish that I had not canceled my additional nights at Delano - I was having a nice time there and I looove the pools. Actually, I held on to my hotel key In case I want to go back later ;).

    Gambling at Cosmo has been pretty good. Best hit of the day was this on 5 dragons gold. I love that game so much, I think it has the best sound effects of any slot machine out there. Super volatile though, I was down to about $10 from a $300 buy in when I hit.

    I then lost pretty much all of it playing the new version of &@!&ing Hot hot 8. Let me be clear, the original version of that game sucks. The new one sucks even more. It looks deceptively fun, but it definitely is not. Eats cash, and bonuses most often pay crap. I thought having higher bet levels was an improvement - but I was wrong, it just ate my cash quicker. On another note, I need to stop chasing losses and dumping hundreds intoacbjnes that aren't paying. Things good news is that after I came back to Cosmo after lunch at aria buffet, I quickly won $300 on a fun new lightening kink game and then by a first spin bonus for $400 on Not in Kansas anymore. So I got my money back. :). Heading down to the floor to try some new games, hopefully I'll find the new version of China Shores. Anything else new out there I should try ? I already played dancing drums and 8 petals, am a minor fan of both.

    I was getting absolutely slaughtered until I hit 300 on lightening link, and then this on a bonanza bonus of 72 free spins. I owe a debt to the slot machine videoers, or I never would have played this one. Down 4-500 for the day. Not great but I'm thrilled with the recovery since I was down about 1600.
