End of the first business day

Well we're officially done with the "workshop" part of the day...and now it goes onto dinner and drinking...ugh! Fortunately my liver hasn't fully recovered from last week so I think I'm good to go.

I've been up since 5:30 am PST (7:30 am CST) but actually was up past midnight last night watching Medium....well it was 10:00pm here but it was really midnight for me....

Within the last 10 days I have been in 3 of the 4 US Time Zone. I flew over the Mountain Time Zone but we didn't bother to stop.....I'm bushed.

We're staying at the Mandalay Bay Hotel....it's FREAKIN' huge. To get from the convention center to my room it takes 15 minutes of walking at "mall speed" that's a lot when you've got to use the bathroom!

On the way back to my room, before going to dinner, I stopped at the Penny Slots and decided to try my luck. I put in $2.00 and played for about 10 minutes, towards the end I was winning a bit so I decided I should keep playing...I had a $5 or a $20 bill.....so I put the $5.00 bill in the machine. This kept me going for about 10 more minutes and when I was getting down to under $5 I decided to "up the ante" and bet 10 per line (which equaled a dollar per spin)....I won $100!!!!

Baby I cashed out and ran to my room.

Whoo hoo....I'm up $75!!! And that's the way it's staying!

I'll post pictures when I get home!

YAY! You beat system. I was never much of a gambler, even though we have a casino downtown, but I was never good at knowing when to stop either! Good for you.

What a bladder. When I did the number right, you could keep it for more than 25 minutes. Impressive.

I'm not really a gambler, but I'm usually quite lucky... As soon as I start to loose, I stop! I just hate loosing!! ;-)
