A Mormon, Two Catholics and a Jew from Iran Walk into a Mexican bar....

....and that was just the LAST event of my mini vacation getaway to Vegas baby!

Yes, Mr. Lulu and I snuck away to the land of Big Hotels, Bigger Casinos and Biggest Boobs for four days last week. We had a great suite, ate at some wonderful places, saw two good shows and gave our money a ride around the various casinos before we just gave up and handed it to the dealer.

Raymundo the Dealer with the gold cap: "Do you want some chips for this last crumpled dollar? I could break off a piece of this here old Frontier chip from the '50's that got into our stack for ya -"

Lulu: "Naw, I'm sure this casino needs it more than me. Besides, I need to get back to my room to listen to more of the screaming argument that started at 3 am in the room next to us last night. I hope it's still loud, because I have a crease in my ear from pressing it up to the adjoining door so that I could hear the response to slurred statements such as, 'Look, I GAVE you the choice to do the NASTY mambo with your mumbleMUMble! I cain't hep it if you DISScide to jump the mumblemumble and twist the damn MUMBLEejumble with THOSE VERY FINGERSssss!!' "

You canNOT put a value on that kind of entertainment. Priceless.

Oh, and the event? Just simply a wonderful little golden nugget of a lunch with MFT who flew in to see us for lunch and then spend the weekend with her friend.....

We had sangria. Because it's healthy, what with the fruit and all.

I wonder what exactly was being twisted with those very fingersss?
Any cocktail that contains fruit qualifies as a salad in my book.
Glad you got out of Dodge for a bit. xo d

I'm envious of the Vegas trip and the sangria.

I love the Vegas...I actually got married there last September. The awesome part? We had a reception in a Terrace Suite at MGM Grand and when you went out onto the terrace, you could watch the people in the room above us getting it on in a lawn chair. Classy stuff :)

Oh, and I found your blog from Miss Yvonne's blogroll - hope you don't mind the pop in! :)

Lulu said...

Di - you should have been there - I think you're snowed in Dodge until spring!

Peach - the fruit gave us the perfect excuse to start drinking at 11 -

Kate - best.reception.ever! I wish I'd been there! And I love the pop in - Miss Y is divine, happy that you stopped in - c'mon back!

Ahhh Vegas-- You just never know what you'll run into there.

Glad you could steal a few days away with your hubby!

I lived in Las Vegas for over 2 years. Neighbors are almost as much fun as the people fighting in the room next door.
