You know Vegas is close when you hear: "Come Quick, there's a new slot video"

    Just wanted to share this funny story from the weekend. Funny for me, maybe just dumb if you weren't there.

    I always know when Vegas gets closer as my wife and I start behaving a bit odd. We start a countdown timer and give each other constant updates, we start scouting shows and dining places (even though we know its a charade and will stick with old reliables). A lot more vegas searches show up in internet histories. I get a lot more active on this message board (I tend to disappear after a trip for a month or two), and we start watching "Vegas movies" (even really bad ones) in the evenings just for the brief glimpses of familiar places.

    So Saturday we were cleaning the house, and I was watching some football (research for my betting you know), and I hear my wife from the backroom excitedly scream: "come quick, come quick". I know she isn't hurt, because that would have been a much different yell, so I assume its a spider or gnat or some other minor inconvenience. Before going back to the office I want to clarify what she needs: "what is it dear?"

    Wife: "DianaEvoni has a new slot video on her Youtube channel!"

    My wife religiously watches slot videos, particularly as Vegas approaches; and although she's the slot player between us, I have started watching them with her. So we dropped our cleaning to watch DE's newest slot video - which turned into about an hour marathon of random Vegas youtube videos.

    Vegas is close...I can feel it.

    Whenever I hear the words "watch a marathon" I think of The Twilight Zone. 24 hours of episodes i would watch sitting on that couch eating thanksgiving leftovers ..at times dangling off the edge of the couch upside down watching ( this was when I was a teen , mind you)
    But I get the silliness prior to the Vegas trip.
    The electricity from the anticipation is awesome in itself and how fun to enjoy something w your wife just adds that much more to the whole experience. Have a great trip.

    Funny.....I don't remember having a second account here under the name of FuzzyDiceCraps. :beer:

    That is, to a "T," exactly the way the wife and I act when a trip is nigh. (Well, except for the football part. Sub baseball and we're good.) Right down to haunting Diana's site looking for new info.
     
    Anniversary Trip!!
