    My Trip Report

    This trip ended up sneaking up on me a little because of the prep for the M&G and slot pull on the 4th, plus work was unusually busy and making me a little stabby at the end.

    So I don't have much of a "pre-cap." But I don't usually have much of one anyway. ANYWAYS...
    • Mint seat on JetBlue both ways. I think I may be done with Southwest except as backup in the winter.
    • 6 nights Cosmo
    • 4 nights either Luxor or Signature (if I get bumped out the suite I reserved at Luxor, I'm going over to Signature)
    • 6 nights PH, where my two-thousand six-hundred thirtieth dollar of coin in will gain me free entry to the secret CET lairs where all the patrons are above-average looking and the ladies rooms feature eunuchs playing lyres. Or so I've heard.
    • Hopefully lots of decent slot bonuses
    • A few free-associating drunk posts
    Renting a car at the airport for the first time in about 8 years to do a booze/supermarket run on the way to Cosmo. I was gonna do a limo, but I figure it would have been nip and tuck getting it done in an hour with pre-holiday traffic, and the price is the same.

    I want a job at jet blue writing smart ass comments for their boards.

    That’s a lot of nights! Will follow along of course but it’s already making me feel tired and broke. Knock em dead.

    Always jealous how men can pack for 16 days in 20 minutes using one carry on. I need too many creams and lotions so I don’t scare people not to mention clothes. I’m like the princess in Spaceballs.

    Looking forward to the July 4 slot fireworks.

    I can't wait for this f-in' liquor run.

    Have a tremendous journey (as you always do).

    I'll walk from downtown to the Strip the weekend of the 12th at some point. I'll pm you.

    Have a great time, and don't skimp on the updates, no matter how minor or cheez wiz filled (you had the report with the cheez wiz wall, right?). You have a smaht fone, and drunk aesthetics are the best! Enjoy!
