Las Vegas Trip Report: June 14, 2005: Last Day

Note:  This is an older Las Vegas trip report that I am posting for the entertainment of Las Vegas addicts and anyone else who loves fun.  It was written back in 2005.  Most of this information is now outdated and some places mentioned no longer exist.

Tuesday, June 14, 2005 – Day Ten of Ten

Up at 5:00 am – last day in Las Vegas!    I’m so sad.  I am out of the room at 5:30 am.  Head to Stardust, with a stop at Starbucks.

Lose and lose and lose.  Head to Wynn.   Lose and lose and lose and have $20 left of my gambling budget.   Put it in a lucky seals penny machine and win $85.   Wooooo.    Head to the buffet.   Wow.  $16.07.   Bacon was excellent, eggs were excellent, but other than that, I didn’t find anything I liked enough to warrant that price.   Also, the entire buffet is non-smoking.

I do not want to leave, but I have no choice.   I am upset and sad and depressed.

Head to the airport.   Eventless flight.  Get home to New York City where it’s just disgusting outside.  So hot and so humid.   Get home, find my apartment even hotter than it is outside.   I get more depressed and hit the computer and start pricing airfare to go back to December in Vegas.

One last thing – I emailed American Airlines to complain about my  flight to Las Vegas and the nine hour delay.  They responded apologizing and told me they are sending me a travel voucher to make up for it.  I am using this travel voucher to spend my birthday in California for a fest.   Slumlords are playing this.   I have told Carlos that I am sure that I will be paying for being dumb enough to tempt the Slumlords curse again.  He has told me that he pictures Satan himself handing me my travel voucher.   This should be a fun adventure.
