The past 48 hours:
-On Wednesday night my girlfriend and I wander around Vegas to do some last minute shopping and sightseeing and to go on the Stratosphere rides.
-We go for an amazing meal at Sensi at the Bellagio.
-At about 10pm we get a text message from my girlfriend's cousin, saying that she just happens to be in Vegas too, on business, and inviting us to join her at a private party at Tangerine nightclub at Treasure Island, with all drinks paid for. We go.
-At about 1am we are very drunk. We decide to leave, to do some final Vegas gambling. We head for Caesar's Palace.
-We go to Pure nightclub. Over-rated and over-priced. No celebs to be seen.
-I join a No-Limits table in the poker room at Caesar's Palace. I lose about $100 in an hour.
-It's about 3am and I'm pissed off and drunk and decide to go for broke. I place $50 on black, at the roulette table. It comes up black. I now have $100. I place the $100 on black again. It comes up black again. I now have $200. I decide to cash out and we head for Excalibur. Here I join another poker game.
-I play poker till 6:30am. I come out around $50 up. In total, I won around $100 during my 3 days in Vegas.
-At 7am we get back to the hotel room and collapse into bed.
-At 10am I wake up and realise that:
a). I have a terrible hangover.
b). We have to check out of the room by 11am.
c). We still haven't even started to pack.
d). We have to return our rental car by 3pm. In Los Angeles.
e). Our flight leaves at 5:30pm. From Los Angeles.
We jump out of bed, pack, and check out. I drive to LA and somehow we return the car and catch our plane on time. I sleep for the entire flight and then get home and sleep for 16 hours, until about 30 minutes ago. I feel like shit.
I had an amazing holiday though. Coachella was as amazing as ever (although I felt the lineup was a little weak this year) and it was great to meet some of you at the pre-party. LA was great too. I saw the most incredible gig of my life at the Hotel Cafe, a few days before Coachella. It cost $10 and featured:
Alice In Chains
I am now wondering what will happen with the $310 speeding ticket I got in Banning.
I'm going back to bed.
