Worked my toushy off for the client conference I was at but it was all worth it because I won at gambling!

Started out with slots and lost....I could so hear the vacuum sound kick in just as I was winning...LOL!

Then I graduated to the blackjack table where dear old dad hangs out mostly and ended up winning $185 after playing about 4 hrs. That was an absolute blast. We had a couple at our table that kept steady drinking and we'd look at them as it became their turn to stay or take a hit and they'd have the biggest luck! Ok, I have to share a "blonde" moment even though I'm not blond....I had no idea drinks were free so I ordered and had gave the waitress money and she gave it back to me. Dear old dad was horrified at my slip up...LOL! He threw her a chip for me...!

So on my way back home yesterday I decided to try my luck again and played the slots at the airport. Don't ya know...I won $30 on the quarter slots...WOOHOO!!!

I can see how people become addicted...you win so you think you will always win...NOT!

Oh.....and Circque de Soleil's "O" show was absolutely AMAZING! The client conference I worked could have had me at receptions at the Rain club at the Palms and at TAO in the Venetian if I wasn't too tired!!!!!!! Kind of wishing I had gone to those receptions!
