    My Trip Report

    What do Wawa diet iced teas and diapers have in common? Let me show you:
    20191008_093201.jpg
    This is how I bring a few bottles to a former "east coaster", that I've met in Vegas. In addition to being all tucked in, the teas will be packaged in zip lock bags individually. So far, so good. Never have had any leaks!

    Next up is a petticoat. I've never even brought a dress to Vegas let alone one that requires a petticoat but hey, sometimes you just have to do what you have to do. 20191007_060251.jpg

    And of course some snacks for the plane and a few gambling dollars. BR is s little smaller than I'd prefer but I look at this way, I only need the buy in amount and maybe a double or split cushion. 20191008_093522.jpg

    30 hours from now I'll be headed to Newark Airport. Anyone else flying in tomorrow, on United around 530pm?

    Things on the agenda this trip: (10/9- 13th or 14th) Home-base will be PHO comped for 5 nights, however, two nights will be at my beloved Plaza. Looking forward to the pre M&G at 4Q's followed by the Cosmo M&G/slot pull, Feetish Spa, Pride Parade, Potted Potter, Ethel M's, thinking to visit Zak Bagans, and I'm waiting on a friend to tell me if we're going to the pre opening party for the Tim Burton exhibit at Neon Boneyard. (Hence the petticoat dresses). THIS would make me the happiest happygirl ever!( keep your fingers crossed for me, please, and thank you!).I won't know until he gets in Saturday.

    Hoping to play lots of bj, get a few handpays, drink too much, eat too little and take a stab at a semi-live TR.

    My 24 yr old daughter will be meeting me and we will be celebrating our birthdays a wee bit late. ( we're both September babies. Celebrating together is difficult since distance makes it hard, she's in Cali, I'm in dirty Jersey).

    Anyway, the final countdown is on! I'll work tonight and sleep on the plane tomorrow. Feeling like kid at Christmas.

    Until tomorrow, folks!:beer:

    Super cute dresses! I saw Potted Potter last week when I was there. I laughed the whole time. If you are a Potter fan, you will love it.
    Have a great time!!

    At the airport waiting for my own trip to paradise. I'm following along - hope you have an epic trip!

    Also, I really miss Wawa. :-( But a sizzler probably wouldn't travel well.

    The fur baby wasn't too happy when she saw the suitcase:

    But I told her:

    Ooh and the final iced tea packing added 5.2 lbs to my luggage. Hopefully it goes the distance!:

    Well about 10 mins to boarding. So for now, I'm off like a prom dress! Later folks!

    I can't help but wonder how many times a day this photograph is taken. That surely evokes one of the best feelings when you see it though.

He was totally cool and said oh I can upgrade to a larger room, with 2 queens. Perhaps it's backwards day ? I'm facing south looking out from the14th floor. The room is spacious but it ends about there. Considering it's a comp room for five nights I can't complain. ( and I hate to say it but I kind of plan on really low rolling here anyway I'm kind of done with CET.) But at the risk of sounding jerky I was under the impression that with a diamond card you're often put on diamond floors that have coffee makers in the room and stuff like that. Either way, it's fine, I don't spend much time in my room anyway. There is plenty of room and the bathroom is pretty big. Like the double sinks, that's s plus.
