Vegas Birthday

Headed to Vegas for my birthday this weekend. I flew there from Arizona (business trip), so I haven't been home for almost 10 days! I'm so glad to be able to sleep in my own bed! My roommate in AZ snored up a storm! To be fair, he did warn me, but I didn't realize how loud he was! at one point I almost wanted to go into the living room and sleep out there! But I was too tired. So they tell me that this will be the last trip that I bunk with a roomie. From here on out, it's solo rooms! yeah!
By the way, did you know that AZ doesn't use daylight savings? I lost an hour going there! Not fun.

After a week's worth of info and training, it's off to Vegas!

At Vegas, I meet up with Jamie and her crew.
I was talking to one of them for a little while, her name was Ellen, she was brunette, maybe 5'2", and very cute.
Turns out that she was with her boyfriend this trip... I hadn't even realized this until I asked...
You know how you can tell with some couples right off the bat? Usually the PDAs give it away. But with them, I didn't catch anything so I thought that they were friends. hehe...

Friday night, Andy and Eric meet us at the Hilton, where we were gambling. I think all of us were up that night in terms of gambling, but not for long!
My sister and her 4 friends show up late friday night too, but they end up somewhere else.
Saturday, JP and his girl Melissa joined us. By this point most of us have lost our winnings and are either even or down...

So Saturday night, 11 of us hit up the Rumjungle, and if you haven't been, you should go... But in the club, they have these large glass rectangles that have water running down the length of them throughout the room.
At one point during the night, we get tired and sit up on the ledge next to the waterfall and I ended up leaning back and thinking, boy that's cold... My back was wet for the rest of the night.
We did meet some teachers from Vegas that night. The one that caught my attention was petite, dark, short hair and was with her teacher friends. After a while, I saw an opportunity to introduce myself, her name was Angie and she teaches a special needs class. Unfortunately, Andy and Eric were not up to the task of playing wingman and it wouldn't have mattered anyway because she has a boyfriend in another state.
Andy gave the excuse that he needed more drinks to talk to Angie's friends. Angie was definitely the prettiest in her crew, so I can't blame him, but I do vaguely recall him saying that he'd be my wingman, no matter who it was, hehe.
Anyway, I don't remember if it was Christine or Melissa that brought this up today, but she mentioned that petite brunettes must be my type. I'm inclined to agree.

-A little excitement today. Andy and I were at the video poker machines (all we could afford after the unkind Roulette and Blackjack tables) when he realized that he didn't have his wallet on him. after a bit of searching, we give up and head to security, where his wallet was waiting for him! Siomeone had turned it in right after he dropped it by the slots! Luckily, he didn't have any cash in it... After all, we lost alot on the tables.

I ended up losing a few hundred, but all in all, it was a good trip. Not one of my best ones, but very fun.
