Just when I got back I’m gone again, but this time just for a short vacation. Yes, we’re off (again) to Las Vegas to experience the desert in January. We’re staying at the Excalibur which has to be the cheesiest casino on the strip, but the rooms are mucho cheapo, so we can survive and walk across the street if we need to be anywhere that’s just not quite as cheddar-like.
It is the Excalibur that has recently installed automated poker tables where you sit and play with opponents, but no dealer or real cards, just a video screen for each player and a display for the community cards. It sounds weird to me, but the ‘Publican is game to try his hand in not tipping a dealer.
As to this Delight business, I had one of those days that was getting through a lengthy to-do list (laundry, groceries, pedicure, bank, ordering prescription refills, putting away xmas and putting together a list for the step-spawn in our absence), but I have managed to think about how it would be to live in delight more of the time. I’m not sure, but when the young woman doing my pedicure made a mistake and we had a mini-geyser on our hands (and up my skirt!), I just laughed. What else was there to do? It was only water, after all.
We’ll also be celebrating our wedding anniversary on the 6th and I’m hoping to get to see another of Cirque du Soleil shows, as long as I can get discount tickets. We’ll see on that score – I have to assume LV has their own version of Leicester Square somewhere.
Have a great few days!
