A Little More Action...

As the saying goes, what happened in Vegas is gonna stay in Vegas.

Well, mostly, cause without a story or two to tell it really wouldn't have been a trip to Vegas, now would it?

First off, I'd like to thank J for this joke (really, it's worth reading), which led to the quote of the weekend:

"Take your blood chocolate and jelly it up your ass."

Let's just say it came at the end of a long day after we'd run through the day's gambling allowance and we had to find something else to play poker with.

As for the rest of the trip, well:
  • If money came in a liquid form, it couldn't go through your fingers faster than it does in Vegas.
  • The women are "Oh. My. God. Beautiful!" on Saturday night. Sunday morning is a whole different story. The men are the same shade of ugly all the time.
  • If you never want to go outside, you don't have to. If you do, be prepared to walk. No Metro and the Monorail doesn't go everywhere you need.
  • Free drinks are not always a good thing while you've got money on the table.
  • As Rusty said in Oceans 11, "I've got two words for you: mini bar."
  • Don't bring kids to Treasure Island's "Pirate" show. While the pirates used to battle it out with the British Navy, they now must protect themselves from the "Sexy Sirens." Not saying I didn't enjoy the show, but if you have kids they might be asking you some uncomfortable questions after the "Bull" sinks.

  • Cirque du Soleil's O is an amazing show. If you ever get a chance to see it, I highly recommend it.
  • Never get on an east-bound plane at three in the afternoon on the West Coast if you have to be at work the next morning. Trust me.
That's all I can think of (or remember) at this point. I see that while I was gone many of Americas financial institutions have decided to go bat shit crazy. Who knew 21 Red would turn out to be a better bet than Merrill?

I saw Cirque's "Zumanity". Very naughty and fun.

I love Vegas, but there is always a sense that you could get beaten senseless and people would just stand there and watch. There is a real sense of lawlessness.

Lem - Zumanity, check. On the list to see. Once I sell some plasma to pay for the ticket.

Now that you mention it, I saw a lot of security guards, but no cops. It's a real departure from reality to see a guy with a gun on his belt and "Hooters Security" patch on his khaki shirt.

Glad that my joke helped with your weekend. Although something tells me you didn't need a joke to get quote like that.

J - Every little bit's appreciated. One person said, "Fine, take your blood chocolate." And then the joker chimed in with "And jelly it up your ass." Laughter ensued.
