    My Trip Report

    Finally, after a 6 month hiatus leaving tonight. Sadly, my husband has to stay home.....work obligations taking priority :(

    The Players
    Our friends M and R....married couple.
    D, single female friend
    We are all 50-something.


    Accommodations
    I'm staying 4 nights comped at Cosmo, currently 1 bedroom, and 1 night rate of $89
    M and R are at Cosmo on a package deal.
    D is split between Linq and Rio on comps.

    D arrived in Vegas last night and leaves Tuesday night. I've done a few proof of life checks on her as she regularly over-indulges in Vegas.

    M, R and I fly non stop from Toronto on Westjet. M and R leave at noon Thursday. I leave at 11:55 pm Friday so basically have a couple of solo days.

    Not many solid plans except M, R and I having dinner at Charlie Palmer's tomorrow and plan to spend some time at Mandalay Bay on the first anniversary of the horrific event last year. I am assuming some sort of memorial will be there?

    Wednesday we are seeing Criss Angel Mindfreak. I know, I know but M really wants to go. Hubby and I saw it a year ago and it was entertaining. We got the half-price special or I'd have taken a pass.

    On Thursday night after everyone leaves, I'm seeing Barry Manilow as no one I travel with would ever want to go. It will take me back to my youth. I also have an afternoon meet planned with a VMB member but I'm keeping that as a surprise.

    D hates to "waste" her Vegas $'s on dining or shows.....and is typically too drunk to go anywhere upscale by dinner or showtime so she took a pass on the plans already made. On a previous trip we missed a concert I'd gotten us tickets to because she was too drunk to be left alone so I no longer make solid plans for her. It never seems to work out well. There may be a few D moments along the way if history is an indicator.

    I'll update once or twice a day.

    Well, time to pack!

    I hope someone alerted metro. Good lord!! 5$ can get you a 5$ chip almost anywhere.
    Put some of that “stuff” in your hair. You’ll be fine. Ha!
    Good luck and have a great trip.

    Had a mauve toner done Monday but it’s fading fast. Will likely be blonde in a day or two :(

    From Vegas Vacation

    [Marty points to the Table Limit Sign $10 minimum]

    Marty: Come on, Griswold, You think that sign is there to hold the table down?

    Clark Griswold: What can I do with five dollars?

    Marty: Gee, I don't know. Buy a bullet and rent a gun?

    You could win 4 cars and have a dollar left over.

    Hahaha. They won’t recognize you as they scour the crowds exiting via the airport with that look. Way to punch holes in our security system lady. We spend billiones and you thwart with a 2$ application. Great.
    Just not great As gin.

    You haven’t visited a hair salon; you can’t get anything with $2. Cut the hair short a few months ago so they’ll be really confused.
