Gettin’ Excited!!

Wednesday, December 5th, 2007, 8:03 pm

Today I cleared the decks in preparation of what I fear is going to be a devastating long weekend in Vegas. Dragged Ernie to my parents’ house (I think he looks forward to his visits now), did a spot of shopping, and now I’m doing some last-second laundry before I pack the ‘ol suitcase. I’m excited, but I guess in my dotage I know that I’m not gonna be able to keep up with the youngins and superstars who can run non-stop for 72 hours.

Not that I’m not gonna try, heh heh heh.

I’m bringing the big-dog ibuprofin tablets I got when I hurt my back, a big bunch of Tums, and extra pairs of contact lenses. Got some cashmere in case we somehow end up at the Spearmint Rhino (I recall an expert once recommending that fabric when visiting such an establishment). Various camera batteries are charging, the iPod is locked and loaded, and I picked up a fistfull of Benjamins at the bank. Add the fact that I’m playing poker at a VERY high level of late, switching back to no-limit has done wonders for my online bankroll and will hopefully continue at the donktastic low-limit tables of Vegas. Wonder if I just jinxed myself. Nah.

I’ve been staying up till 2 or 3AM for the last few weeks in order to defeat the jet lag that’s clobbered me during my previous Vegas visits. I’m tempted to stay up all night and then try to sleep on the plane, but I don’t like the idea of driving to the airport in the snow while I’m totally fried. I’m also a bit nervous because my car sometimes doesn’t like to start when it’s cold out, so I’ll be going outside to warm her up a few times before I hit the hay.

Looks like I’ve got all the bases covered. It’ll probably take five minutes hanging around you insane degenerates to turn my carefully-laid plans into hash.
