Vegas is great / I f*%^ing hate Vegas

My sister's best friend got married in a small chapel with an intimate crowd of friends this past weekend. This weekend, the couple will have the traditional Chinese tea ceremony and reception.

We all went to Vegas for her small civil ceremony and I had a great time chasing my money while simultaneously paying the stupid tax. No matter how much I am up and winning, I can never walk away at a beneficial time (read with winnings in hand here). So I continue to play and pay and all of a sudden I am set back more than I make in a week. It is the Chinese blood in me that boils when I see money take its rightful place next to cards. OOOOOHHHHH YEEEEAAAAHHHHH.

All in all I played in over 5 casinos, won and lost over 3 days, and slept a total of 7 hours in 2 nights. I gambled the rest of time, minus the wedding.

And while driving home from Las Vegas to Los Angeles, I find it assinine to NOT stop at the state line to check out the casinos there and give them their rightful go at my money. Nope. leaving Nevada up one penny is just unacceptable to this little girl. So betwen gambling and window shopping I see an interesting display on Bonnie and Clyde Barrow's legendary car that drove them to their deaths. And I lose my bomb-ass phone.

I gues it is true what they say, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. I have learned to hate that line since. Friggin Vegas has my friggin cell phone and friggin SIM card. Frigging phone book and friggin friggin friggin.

Sounds like friggin' Vegas needs a good kick in the friggin' nuts the friggin' bastard.

Heh. That sux... "You never expect it to happen to you... but then it does"

I suggest taking this time to negotiate with cingualr/T-Mobile/whoever for a new phone... Like a $400 Razr for like $5. You'd be surprised at what enough "...or I'll switch to verizon!" can get you. (bluffing, of course)

Go Kick vegas in the nuts so hard that they replace it's eyes.

And that ladies and gentlemen is why I don't gamble...unless I know I can win.

So, Chi_lan, did you play my number? Aww, man, maybe THAT's why you didn't win. You think?

What kinda kick-ass phone did you lose, anyways?

Well I'm glad to see you enjoyed yourself. lol. Sucks ass about your phone though. You didn't have any sex clips with Fred Durst did you? If not, you'll probably be O.K. If so, I'm sorry. Sorry that you know Fred. lol.

...I'm only kidding.

sounds like you did have fun though.

Man I love Las Vegas...the show. What were you playing? Slots, cards, dice, roulette? If I ever gambled, it would be cards, because then at least I can blame myself for losing and be content, instead of have a vendetta against friggen Vegas.

Aww poor Chi Lan. On the plus side it happened in Vegas so no one can be like "YOU LOST WHAT". Now had it been ohh say Little Rock Arkansas you might have a little explaining to do.

If it means anything to you I have a serious love of poker and play anytime I can....sad i know but i just LOVE to play it. Ohh and caleb the reason you only gamble when you know your gonna win is cuz your irish just like me, which means we drink, or atleast that is what sterotypes tell me.

Hope you have lucking getting your stuff replaced/back.

Ok... now I've gone and done it. I am testing Chi-Lan's blog on an RSS feed.

I am still learning about this things... but I noticed that her blog has a newsfeed. I think you can set up either a newsreader or your browser. Firefox or Safari to tell you when something changes.

Has anyone else tried this?

Scoff....

Man chi-lan... this blog doesnt do justice....

i wish i could hear ur sarcasm and wit and not have to read and then make it up in my mind....

at least upload some more pics of u...

Brent said...

Ok Chi Lan... and this goes to anyother gearheads out there...

My Linksys router is about 4 years old... it is also only "B"... I've been hearing great things about the Belkin Pre-N router... in fact I can pick one up at my house... and it's open.. ha ha.

Has anyone else used one of these?... it looks like it has great range.

Brent said...

I heard Kevin Rose say he is leaving G4 TV.... I think he is not happy with the direction it is going.. go figure.

He is going to be going to Web Content TV. Putting a TV show on the net which can be downloaded using Bit Torrent.

He announced this on the Twit Podcast with Leo Laporte.

Morbid Bastard said...

Yep. He has his own site dedicated to his downloads. http://www.systm.org/
