Thirteen Reasons Carmen Can't Visit Your 13 This Week
No blogging until I return after Labor Day. I know, I know, you're sad. But get out there and enjoy the last official hurrah of summer. :)
  1. Early Thursday morning, I'll be waiting in line at the airport, having checked all my makeup, and hoping that Southwest doesn't lose my luggage so I don't have to make a trip to Sephora when I land.
  2. At around 11, I'll begin my four hour flight to LAS VEGAS! Dehydrated, because I can't bring water on the plane. (BTW, those whining about being inconvenienced at airports because of profiling. Well - waaaahhhhhh. We're all inconvienced. Get over it.)
  3. At around 1 (4 EST) I'll land in Las Vegas and as soon as I depart the plane I'll see (and hear) the first of the slot machines *ding*ding*ding. (Yes, there are slots in the airport)
  4. After that, I'll be either standing in a very long line to catch a cab to the hotel, or, we now know the secret to getting a "hired" car. You see, the car services aren't allowed to solicit you in the airport, so they hold up signs like they're picking up someone, but they're very non-specific. There really is no Mr. Smith. YOU are Mr. Smith today. Last year, we had someone else to test the theory on. I wonder if we'll try it on our own this time?
  5. At around 2 p.m. Vegas time, I'll be checking into the VENETIAN hotel.
  6. Around 2:05 p.m. I'll be lounging by the VENETIAN pool with a cold daquari.
  7. Around 4 p.m. Vegas time, I'll probably be playing the penny slots, hopefully winning tens of dollars and drinking free drinks. Which I will NOT spill on the slot machines as in year's past. (I'm sure I'm on the security camera Christmas party funnies)
  8. At 7 p.m. Vegas time (it'll now be 10 p.m. EST) I'll be eating at Emeril's Delmonico steakhouse, making orgasmic noises as I eat the food. I'll be having a filet, btw.
  9. At 8:30 p.m. Vegas time, I'll be making my way over to the Cheesecake Factory for a sugar rush and more orgasmic food noises. Hopefully, on my way, I'll be able to see the stupid TI pirate show, and the Bellagio fountains, and the Mirage volcano.
  10. Around 10:30 (it'll now be 1 a.m. EST) I'll be sitting in the Bar at Times Square in NY, NY singing with the deuling pianos.
  11. After dueling pianos, there will be more buzzed penny slot playing. I need the Death Star Bonus!
  12. Around 2 a.m. Vegas time (now 5 a.m EST) I'll go back to the room and call in a slurred wake up call request for 8 a.m (because Friday morning is the yummy breakfast buffet at the Paris Hotel).
  13. Irish and I will giggle and talk about the boys we saw/met until we pass out, leaving us on about 4 hours of sleep to start it all over the next day!

    Dude, I am so going to need a Rascal scooter. Especially if we are going to see the TI show on the way to Cheesecake! HA Remember: extra cheesecake for our refrigerator.

    I forgive you. I took 2 weeks off from TT. It's only fair you have a vaca too!

    Renee said...

    Sounds like a great plan! Just keep buzzing the flight attendants for more water...every 10 min or so oughta do it. ;)
    'course if I drank that much I would have to pee constantly and plane potties are the worst! especially since men insist on standing and that doesn't work on a plane..."sit down boys! It won't kill you to actually hit the target." no I haven't been drinking...yet.
