Another Day, Another $100....

Well, I did it! I bet $100 on black at the Bellagio (no Circus, Circus for me, Jonathan!) and WON!! Here's my proof of another thing crossed off THE List.

2. Bet $100 on black at a Roulette table in Vegas


P.S. My camera is broken and my parents were out of town too, so we have to deal with cell phone pictures for this trip. I was in the conference for most of the trip anyways, so not too much was picture-worthy.

My conference was in the MGM Grand Hotel. I really liked it there, but I never realized how BIG these hotels were! I realized on the third day that I entered this hotel on Monday and had not walked outside and breathed fresh air since. There is so much in one hotel that you could spend a 4 day vacation there, never leave, and never repeat activities, clubs, or restaurants (except gambling).

I was hanging out with customers in the evenings for the most part, so I didn't get to see any shows which was sad (I really wanted to see Ka in my hotel!), but I did get to go to a party in a penthouse on Tuesday night! It was awesome! View from the Penthouse balcony:Finally, I spent a LOT of time walking back and forth between the hotel part of MGM and the conference center which are seriously far apart. I decided that the designers of this particular hotel are cruel people....this is what you have to walk by every time you go to the conference center. Its like they're saying "Wouldn't you rather be HERE right now instead of sitting in a bunch of conference sessions?"
And with that, we end Emily's cell phone tour of the conference in Vegas. One of our sales guys, Rob, had a camera and took a couple of pictures, so I may try to get some of those and write some other stories soon. But for now I'm going to bed...3 days of VERY little sleep does NOT do a body good. :)

YES! See, THE list (much like THE Bangs) can only bring about good things.

Jonathan would also like you to know that he is very glad you resisted the siren song of Circus Circus because he would've had to cease being your friend. Since it was Bellagio, he is very very proud!

alright!

Told you so! Did you get a chocolate martini? (sounds gross)

Emily said...

I totally forgot about the chocolate martini!! I wish I would have. Like I said, for 3 of the 4 days I was there, I didn't leave the walls of the MGM Grand - not too much of a true Vegas experience.

Congrats on the big win!!!

So....did you stop at the win or did you keep playing and lose. Unfortunately that is what I always did (although I only played the draw poker machines)but I would never quit when I was ahead and end up losing my winnings. Hopefully a big win like $100 was spent on something fun and not lost.
