Leaving Las Vegas

is a very difficult thing to do both emotionally and physically (as of late.)

SO,

Friday morning I flew out to sin city to meet up with my baby and go to a diamond exhibit Friday night. She was being flown out and put up by influential people, and lowly I paid for my flight and gambling money.

I rented a convertible as fast as I could and we checked into the new Ritz Carlton (opened that day) and I have to say it was one of the nicest hotels I have stayed at. It is about 30 minutes outside Vegas Proper and is located in an area called Lake Las Vegas. It is basically a resort area recently built into a valley between a couple of bluffs on a man made lake.

Friday night we saw the exhibit which comprised ten manneguins with a huge diamond necklace on each of their necks and digitally projected faces on their heads. It was a pretty bizarre and dramatic way to show a piece of jewelry.

As for celebs (besides me, of course ) I saw:

-Jessica Simpson
-Jessica Simpson's husband (I think someone said he was a singer in the boy band 98 degrees)
-Sabrina the teenage witch
-Andy Richter (Conan's old sidekick)
-Tony Curtis

I think that was it, but who knows there could have been more.

So I planned on leaving Sunday night, but of course it was the "Blizzard of '03" in NYC. The first flight I could get back was late Tuesday night.

So basically it was 5 days of eating at the finest LV restaurants, drinking, and getting massages paid for by companies I do not work for. It was pretty fantastic, the only thing I could have hoped for was to actually win some money as it was the only thing I spent my cash on. I ended up losing after playing almost every game in almost every casino on the Strip. I found each one nastier than the next (except for the Bellagio) and I ended up losing everywhere I went.

The problem with this is that I love to gamble.

Anyway - I have a poker game tonight in which maybe I can win some money back...

yes, ouizy...leaving las vegas can be very difficult. and that is exactly why i don't. sorry you lost all of your money, but perhaps you could think of it as supporting the employees of clark county? i hope, at least, that you drank as many free cocktails as you possibly could. you hit some nice weather, too...

viva las vegas!
