    My Trip Report

    Helloooooo motherf*$kers! Good morning from ATL. I figured, everyone else is doing it, why not go to Vegas?!? En route to my longest *planned* trip to Vegas so far. I'll be staying a few different places, doing some different stuff, and um, drinking, gambling, and eating food.

    Where you going daddy?!?!

    My first flight landed just about the time the sun was starting to peek out. Just got off this guy, first time I've had a 737-800 out of my tiny ass local airport. Got up and out waaaaaaay too early, basically a redeye for folks living in the past out west.

    Now I'm just waiting a couple unnecessary hours get on this BUFF which should carry me all the way to Las Vegas before you westie folks think its lunch time.

    Have a great time! I miss those airport sunrises - so much more enjoyable when you don't have to be at work once the sun is up!
     
    A low strip trip? Could be….
    Boom! A comp arrives and I can’t say no

    I agree with the second part. I'd agree more with the first part if that sunrise wasn't after my first flight lol. Had some super cool moon views though on that first leg.

    In the BUFF now. More comfortable than the airport for sure. Cant wait to get in the air so I can lie down and fall asleep, hopefully lol. Just 1,760 miles to go! That's it!

    Currently on my way to Bally's. I know. I feel like a filthy whore. But I'll be leaving there as soon as possible. I originally planned to fly in Sunday and already had comped MLife and Cosmo reservations. When I moved back the start date, I'd had a Bally's reservation I made as a fallback months and months ago, and I'm just going to use 2 of the 4 or 5 nights I booked. I was originally booked in Encore Sunday through tuesday and a suite at Aria the rest of the week, and I'm going to neither of those now. We'll just see where I end up when, but when I get off this plane, I'm holding my nose and telling the driver to take me to Bally's.

    We are about to go flight mode finally, but 2 notable notes about my Delta experience so far: first, that an updated list of entertainment has arrived, including Elf, A Christmas Story, Christmas Vacation, OG Willy Wonka, most of the movies based on slot machinez!

    Second, I was just visited by a "cabin concierge" who took my hot breakfast order. THREE hot options! Anyway, plane is moving, gotta go flight mode, see ya'll MFs in Vegas in about 4 hours, allegedly!

    Outstanding tie! Did you manage to capture the lunar eclipse on your flight? Good luck and good times.

    AHEM.
    That's awesome. And luckily it's pretty hard to screw up breakfast. Even just some cereal in the morning is better than what they serve in the back of the plane, i.e., nothing. And those are excellent movies for this time of year (though I admittedly was never a huge fan of A Christmas Story). Good that they're still showing the OG version, the obsessive need to re-make everything drives me nuts. Like, the original animated Grinch was just fine. Leave it alone.

    On a related note, don't forget that Cosmo is doing the movies up at the ice rink again. Monday is Arthur Christmas, which doesn't do much for me, but Tuesday is Christmas Vacation.
