Back in the Saddle

March 27th, 2006

The Vegas trip was a success… complete and total. I will suggest to my faithful readers that if you are ever considering driving to Las Vegas that you give it careful consideration. It is not a trip for the weak… or physically active. You never really get a sense of how much you enjoy standing until you have to sit for 20 hours.

Time actually spent in Vegas proved most efficacious. I won $400 in blackjack over the course of the week (most of it on the final day). Roulette went equally well when the group placed a $10 community bet (8 bucks left over from a shared lunch tab plus $2 of my own) on double zero. That paid out a cool $360 split between the six of us and helped pay for a rather enjoyable show.

Entertainment wise we saw Penn & Teller, the Star Trek experience, and a few of the off strip entertainment options. Good stuff, for the most part. Of course, I am sworn to secrecy about the whole affair beyond what I’ve already disclosed. You know, standard “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” agreement. Probably for the best for all involved parties. In the interest of scintillation, allow me to hint at the existence of almost three full hours of uncut video.

Now it’s back to school, my last quarter, wrapping up my various projects, finding a job, and saying goodbye to my home for the past seven years.

    I’m afraid you’ll have to tell me if you want a particular piece of the events to go undisclosed… ;-)

    Also: That was all my money! I may as well have handed Sean $400 at the beginning of the week and called it good! :-D

    Well Mr. John, there is nothing that I need kept quite. But, per the agreement made at the beginning of the trip, you might want to consider whether spilling the beans will be in the spirit of the occasion.

    Also: while it may very well have been your money, I believe you rather freely gave it to the casino. All I did was free it from their evil grip and charge an excessive finders fee of 100%.

    I think we have different ideas about what the spirit of the trip involves. ;-) I certainly won’t be revealing any specific things that anyone except me took part in, though, so perhaps we are in agreement about some facets of the thing.

    That said, I have no issues with your finder’s fee, but I do expect a beer out of the deal. A beer!
