I covered everything conference related early today here.

My stay at the Excalibur was uneventful. I wouldn't stay there again, unless it was free and I had no money. I'd still have to think about it though.

The walk from there to Mandalay Bay however was...interesting. Not once did I navigate the maze without having to backtrack. I know/understand that is on purpose...but it's still annoying. Maybe that's taking marketing (or whatever it's called) just a bit too far. If people want to gamble, they'll gamble.

Last night I got lost in the Luxor for an hour. I could have gone outside, but I was determined to figure it out. I had help from beer too.

The other highlight of my day was eating lunch with Mr. Floyd Teter. No adjective is descriptive enough to describe him...I'll settle for Awesome though.

I did manage to get some shopping in today...I hate shopping, but the family deserves something. So I got them all "My dad/husband went to Las Vegas and all I got was this lousy T-Shirt" t-shirts.

Since my flight didn't leave until 1 am (Friday morning), I had time to kill. So I parked myself in front of a slot machine and within minutes lost $10. I then played roulette, only to lose $20 in 3 minutes. I blame Mr. Mark Rittman...he paid me for the iPad I got him in cold, hard cash. It burned. It had to be spent. I think it was payback for my little stunt the other day.

So I left the hotel(s) and went to the airport so I wouldn't spend any more money. Though those stupid slot machines behind me are calling my name. I can't wait to get out of here if only for the silence.
