Another neat day in Vegas. First of all, THE SUN ACTUALLY CAME OUT! Woohoo. The town looks so much prettier when the sun is out. AND, I got to see the water show at Bellagio. Wow, it really is amazing. I took some pictures, but I’m not sure if they do it justice!

In a nutshell: Breakfast buffet, Hard Rock Casino (where I bought a pin and a lanyard and some dice and got a free shot glass), Stardust, where mommy spent $200 on porcelain dolls, and the Riveria, where I did this $40 for $20 slot machine thingy (paid for by Greg). You pay $20, but you get $40 worth of credits, and you keep trying until you run out, in hopes of winning a $1,000 jackpot. If you don’t win the jackpot, you’re guaranteed a prize worth at least $20, and you pick it out. I was doing well for a long time, then my luck ran out. I ended up getting what I thought was another suitcase, but it’s actually a rolling cooler. I plan to use it to transport my purchases, though.

I took pictures of Britney Spears’ “…Baby One More Time” outfit and Christina Aguilera’s “Dirrty” outfit at the Hard Rock. :) WOW, the guitars they had in there. Incredible.

After that, we went to the Bellagio buffet. OH MY GOSH. Delicious. Bloody hell, that food was amazing. I had Wellington chicken, mashed tators and gravy, and spinach. Yummmmmm. That is my favorite buffet of them all. After dinner, Greg did some gaming, then I saw the water show. Then we went to Bally’s, where Mommy gave me $10 for the slots. I lost some, but cashed out $4.50. Slot machines are fun, but they suck your money. I wish I had the nerve to play a table game. Blackjack, to be specific. I have a feeling I’d kick bootay at that game.

So, that’s my day in a nutshell. Erin, I want to come out here with you. I’m already planning my next trip, and I want it to be just us girls. We can stay in a hotel on the strip and see Celine and shop and just have a grand ole time. :)

I think I’m going to have slot machine/casino sounds stuck in my head for weeks to come. I may even dream of some machines. Heh.

Tomorrow is my last full day! Tonight, I’m going to grab a drink at the bar since I get a free one, and probably watch Greg play some more poker, then head to bed. Later, gators. Remembrer, it’s only 5:30pm here, although my post time will say 8:30 or so. Hehe, PST. How funny.

SOMEHOW, I managed to find the high speed internet access. Actually, it found me. It costs $9.99 for 24 hours of service. Dorks. I’ve already placed a $10 bill on my parents’ bed, so they shouldn’t be pissy about it.

Today the weather was CRAPPY! It rained and it rained hard. Despite that, Mommy and I managed to go to lots of places; The MGM Grand (holy banana, that place is beautiful), New York New York, M&M World, Coca-Cola World, and Fashion Show Mall. We ate lunch at a place called Weinerschnitzel. Yummy chili-cheese dogs and french fries. Dinner was the Steak Buffet tonight. YUMMMMY. I also lost a few more dollars in the damn slot machines. I’m DONE gambling (with my own money) for the rest of this trip.

Seriously, the MGM Grand is amazing inside. That casino is so pretty, and you can barely smell the smoke. I WANTED to game in their casino, and I desperately wanted to take pictures. But we’re not allowed. :( That sucks. If you come here, you HAVE to see that place. And the Forum Shops. :)

I GOT MY CHUCK TAYLORS! They’re so cute. I love them. So pink and pretty and stuff. Oh my gosh. Funny story. I went to Footlocker and settled for these cute tri-color CTs. Still pinks. But then I went to Lady Footlocker and found the pink ones I wanted. I had to go back to Footlocker, return them, get the cash, and then go back up to Lady Footlocker. All the work was worth it, though, because the pink ones were cheaper! Good times, or what?

So anyway, here are a few more PICTURES!

Mommy & Me in front of Tiffany with our new jewelry! <3!!
My new jewelry!!!

My dinner the first night we came. Aged prime rib. MMMmMMmmMMMM!

The beautiful Bellagio hotel.

A slight glimpse of the strip.

Me and an M&M at M&M world!

Heehee. This was not mine, it was Greg’s. He did hit the Royal on one of the machines, though. That was a lot more than 4 cents.

More pictures when I get back. These are the highlights. I’ll do a photo album with all the rest.

Vegas is fun. But I know all the debauchery happens when I’m sleeping. I want to see some of that. Just kidding. Oh, there are people who stand on the street and hand out some sort of cards with naked chicks on them. Not even cute. I ignored them. Some of the pictures and ads around here…scandalous!

The rain has passed and now it’s beautiful out. I want to see the strip! I can see lights from my window! But I’m kind of nervous to go alone at night (although I keep telling my mom that after she’s asleep I’m going to the Palms and partying the night away), and they are in for the night. So maybe tomorrow night I’ll get to see that dang watershow. Mmm yeah, the water was going today. I saw a glimpse while we were in the cab to the mall. Boo. I WANT TO SEE THE WATER SHOW. Dang it.

There is a bottle of wine sitting here beside me on the desk. I don’t like wine, but it was free. :) Heehee. Gotta love that.

Tomorrow’s agenda? Well, it’s really up in the air now. They were mentioning a slot tournament, but then they were mentioning a Bellagio day. I definitely don’t have a problem with that! I guess we’ll see. I’m sure the breakfast buffet will be involved somehow. And either a shuttle or a cab ride. I hope the weather is pretty. There are lots of places that I want to take pictures of, like the Venetian and The Mirage and that darn water show. :)

Good night for now. :)

I’m In Vegas!

As you may have figured out, the internet access in our room did not work. So, I’m typing up the accounts of my trip in Word, saving it, and will transfer it to Live Journal later. The current date is Oct 18, 2004. Well, it is in Vegas, anyway. At home, it’s already Tuesday. Weird. (I figured it out. Not really, I asked the front desk).

Anyway, here goes.

Las Vegas

I’m going to Las Vegas in October!! Shh, Chris doesn’t know yet. Actually, he knew I was going, just not when. Well, Mommy called me today and told me that she and Greg are taking just ME out for my 30th birthday. Yes, I know my birthday is not until December, but they want to go when the weather is nicer and the city is not so crowded. They’re paying for my (non-stop) flight, hotel, and food. And I’m getting a massage and a pedicure. Tell me that’s not!?!?! I’ve never been further west than Chicago, so this will be exciting for me. And a welcome break from just… life. YIPPEE!! :)

Actually, I’m finding it hard to get excited because October is so far away and because Vegas just seems so… pipe-dreamish, I guess. Well, I’m sure it will be fun. Can’t wait to take lots of pictures and see the fancy stores and hotels and such. Good times should be had by all (three of us who are going).
