The good, the bad, and the fluff

GOOD: Went to Vega$ Monday and returned Wednesday. Were you aware that you can get a payout of $459.00 off of a nickel slot machine after one spin of the reels and one bonus game? Lemme tell ya, that was way cool.
BAD: After I did put aside my original bankroll, 1/2 hotel money, and 1/2 food charges (before comps), I ended up giving most of it back to the house.
FLUFF: I still walked out of the joint with more than I walked in with, so that's good. Jen also hit a $280ish pot on a half-dollar slot, though she was more frugal in returning money to the house. She also put aside her original bankroll, 1/2 hotel money, 1/2 food charges (before comps) and was able to walk out with more money than I had, which she has already decided what she'll be spending it on.

GOOD: The weather in SoCal is sunny and 75.
BAD:  Our miserable weather from a week or so ago has moved, causing more pain and suffering.
FLUFF: Sorry, but I had nothing to do with it.

GOOD: We're getting DirecTV installed on Saturday.
BAD: No haircut for Carl, who really needs one.
FLUFF: I'm going to have to figure out this whole setup, somehow. I'd like to keep the Series 1 downstairs for a while, since there is still stuff on it that we need to watch. Eventually, I will either sell the Series 1 (lifetime service and 300 hours - might get a bite or two) or bump it upstairs for those times when I need to record three things at once (like, never).

GOOD: I missed the whole drbear's cat is still psycho thing.
BAD: Just found out that Francisco Franco is still dead.
FLUFF: I heard a rumour about Elvis leaving the building as well.

Don't worry. He's still psycho. You haven't missed a thing.

Good to know. I've also recently found out that Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead...

Wheee did you use the monorail thingy in Vegas?
And what hotel did you stay at?

Monorail <--> overpriced. A one trip ticket is $3. Yikes!

This time, we stayed at NYNY. Much niceness. Love the dueling pianos!

Ohhh yeah! I love NYNY.. that's usually where we stay when we go there. I like the feel of it :)
It feels less.. um.. cheesy than some of the other places :) I like the steam coming up from the manhole covers when you're walking around 'town' :)

GOOD: So looking forward to enjoying your weather next week.
BAD: Haven't heard you'll be joining us on Wednesday. (Realizing it's a "school night" I figure it's a longshot, but hope we can work something out, perhaps during my round II trip.)
FLUFF: The marshmallow creme that goes well with peanut butter and bananas.
