Last Minute Pai Gow Poker
Last Minute Pai Gow Poker
Now if only I could have gotten hands like that at the table... Mom's flight left an hour and a half before ours, so we figured it would be easier if we all just went to the airport together. That meant the last day was fairly short; we only had time to play a few last hands of Pai Gow poker and some slots at the Bellagio after, of course, the Jean Philippe Patisserie. It didn't take us as long to get through the gates as we thought, so we had time to have lunch. Benson bought a deck of cards and we started playing Pai Gow poker a bit. We even got Mom to play a hand. Unfortunately, it's somewhat less fun when there's no money on the line. This was my first time leaving Vegas in a long time when I immediately wanted to return. Normally I'm Vegased out by the end, but this trip felt so whirlwind I feel like I only got a taste. I suppose this means I'll have to go back soon. I started counting up the number of times I've been to Vegas, and where I stayed. I could have sworn I had done it before, but I couldn't find it. It turns out I've been a lot: October 2000 - my first trip, stayed at the Orleans with Nick and Barney; spent most of the time drinking, bowling, and playing slots; since it was my first trip to Vegas we visited most of the casinos (and even visited the Stratosphere, where I rode the roller coaster on top) November 2001 - first trip with Benson, stayed at New York New York in a cramped, crappy room; saw Thunder from Down Under after seeing the billboards for it (forgive me) July 2003 - first road trip to Vegas, with Steph, stayed at the Boardwalk (which no longer exists; it was demolished to make way for City Center); Wheel of Fortune was my favorite game (and Steph won $250 at it at TI); we watched Mystere November 2003 - flew in with the Craig Court gang and "stayed" at Paris; the first night we got a couple hours of sleep and the second night we didn't even bother going to sleep at all; Slingo was my favorite game (it was mostly gone by the next time we visited); we went to see Zumanity at New York New York November 2004, Part 1 - vanpooled to Vegas to Get Out the Vote; stayed in two really really crappy (cheap) hotels with the GOTV organization; spent a few moments gambling at the Orleans waiting for a van pickup at the end of one day and went to Fremont Street with Dan since it was within walking distance of our hotel; left utterly depressed given the result; the first time I saw the "real" Las Vegas in all of the neighborhoods where we were knocking on doors November 2004, Part 2 - a few days later, Benson and I met up with Mom and Larry and stayed at their Polo Towers Time Share; this is where I joined the MGM Player's Club because of Mom and haven't looked back; we went to see Howie Mandel at MGM August 2006 - my first birthday road trip to Vegas (after Joshua Tree) with Benson, we stayed at TI in a comped room, and loved it; my favorite game was Powerball (it was mostly gone by the next time we visited); decided none of the shows were really that exciting, which has been the case ever since August 2007 - my second birthday road trip to Vegas (after the Painted Desert and Grand Canyon) with Benson, stayed at Bellagio and fell in love with their pools; 7-hand blackjack was my favorite game; also drove out to non-Strip parts of Vegas like the museum and Red Rock Canyon January 2008 - this time! So that's 8 times in 7.5 years... that doesn't seem like that much any more. :)
One of those Days...
One of those Days...
Not a particularly interesting photo I realise, but part of a very important story. Our last day was a slight fiasco. Croatia is wonderful and I do recommend it, however we had a very long last day. On Sunday night we asked the owner of the hotel what time the ferry leaves as there are only 2 ferries on and off Vis. He spoke Croatian and German. We didn't. Eventually he wrote down 8.30 so we thought great, thanked him, and left. At 5.30 I wake up, look out the window and see the ferry pulling away. Drats! The TRAVEL AGENCY opens at 8.30. Now comes the stress. The next (and only other) ferry leaves at 12.30. It's a 2 1/2 hour ferry ride back to the main land. Our bus from there takes 8 hours to get to our required airport for our plane that leaves at 10pm. The maths was not good. So we caught the ferry back to the mainland (Split) and found a car agency that will rent us a car for 1 day - one way. We then drive VERY fast (don't listen mum and dad) up the inland motorway to Rijeka. We make wonderful time and everything is looking great. Then we hit Rijeka. Now if anyone knows anyone influential in Rijeka get them to put a SIGN up for the airport!!!!! I don't care if it's in English or Croatian or simply a picture of a plane just SOMETHING!!! We spend an hour searching the city. Eventually we recognise something from when we had landed there and find the required road. We arrive at the airport 4 minutes before check-in finishes. We book in and return the car to the rental guy who agrees with us that Rijeka needs a sign for the airport. Now we wait to board the plane... and wait ....and wait... the plane is delayed by about an hour. Eventually we board the plane and fly back to London. We land, go through customs and go to collect our baggage. Now one should ponder Easyjet's brilliance. You would think that when a airport has a total of 4 flights a day and the plane is delayed then there isn't any possibility that luggage could be lost. They proved us wrong. My bag was there, Dave's bag was not. So we go and fill in the necessary forms for baggage with a very dour woman who appears to think Dave is serious when he replies to her question 'was there anything valuable inside your bag?' with 'my toothbrush' and adds it to the list. We then wait for our train for an hour as we have missed the first one due to the loss of baggage. Luckily we meet some interesting people to keep us amused at our platform including a German sports writer and an exotic feather dancer. The train arrives and we journey back to London from Luton. A fairly uneventful, if not long train and bus journey takes us home and we are at our door. It is now we discover that Dave had forgotten that he had double locked our door as we were on holidays and I don't have a copy of that key... and Dave's keys are in his luggage... in Croatia. Its 4 in the morning and I'm due at work at 9 - things are not looking happy. Eventually we go to a friends place in our suburb, wake her up and we sleep on her couch. It was a VERY LONG DAY! All's well now, we got the bag back eventually (covered in gravel and cigarette ash) with an apology that they accidentally left it on the tarmac. We have a good story though to keep anyone smiling who thinks they are having 'one of those days'.
