A Week from Vegas

One week from now, I'll be out on the open road somewhere between Lake Tahoe and Las Vegas. I'll probably be somewhere around Death Valley, and roasting in the sun. I hope Nikki the Ninja likes the heat. If no disasters occur on the way to Vegas, I'll be bowling and tossing back beers next Thursday night.

So, I'll be in Vegas four days and three nights. Here's what I've got as a packing list:

Two changes of underwear
Three changes of socks
Two shirts
Cargo Shorts
Swim suit
Tooth Brush/Toothpaste

That sounds about right to me. I'm debating on whether or not I should bring the laptop, but I think it'll be more of a hassle than anything, really. I'm not sure how much time I'll be spending with Brandon in the mansion--it'll probably depend on how the gambling goes. And I wouldn't really want to leave my laptop somewhere for an extended period of time without me being around.

In order to maximize the fun factor, and minimize my losses, here is my list of priorities:

1) prop bets. Which female blogger rubs waffle's head first at the table. Who throws the hammer the most at the blogger tourney. Betting on whether or not Falstaff can pick up that 4-10 split in bowling. Prop bets are where the most action and the most fun for my money is at--so I want to get as many of these in as possible.

2) Chinese Poker. I want to play this game. And hopefully at stakes that I can afford.

3) Poker with the bloggers. MGM Friday night, blogger tourney--I'm very much looking forward to the mixed game Friday night.

4) WSOP. Can't wait to see it live, and root on Brandon, Carl, and any other familiar faces from the rail.

5) Red Rocks. Hopefully I'll be awake when the sun comes up one of the days I'm in Vegas, and I can jet out to the park and snap some photos.

6) Swimming pools. Harken back to my only other time in Vegas--when Andrew and I were 17 and snuck into all the pools at "4 corners" NYNY, MGM, Excal and Tropicana. It just so happened that the Hawaiian Tropic girls were in town at the Tropicana, so you can guess which pool was our favorite. Cheap entertainment!


217) Table games. I want to stay as far away from table games as possible. I don't care if it is Pai Gow--I'm going to lose money, and really, when it comes down to it, I don't like to lose money.

Let me know if you can think of anything else I should bring, besides a fat wallet.

(1) We have a washing machine if you need to bring even fewer clothes.

(2) You can leave the laptop in the Mansion whenever you want. It isn't really necessary since we have a bunch of computers here so you may as well travel light and leave it at home.

(3) I'm down for low-stakes Chinese Poker if I have the time.

(4) Good beat for me, bad beat for you: I met a girl who lives in LA and I think she's pretty cool. She's coming to visit the same weekend that you'll be here so I might be a little preoccupied, even when I'm not pokering.

See you Thursday. Give me a call and I'll give you the gate code and door code for our place. Peace.

Fewer clothes, it is! Probably leaving my laptop here, as incentive to go out and do more stuff while in Vegas. I'm sure we'll find time for some LSCP. Good beat for you... you dog!
