I got nothin' but time...

Ugh. We've been in Vegas since Thursday night, rocking our brains out, and all I wanna do is go home, get my little doggie, and relax in my bed. So, what's our fate for tonight? Stranded in the Vegas airport until 10:55, 1:30am arrival in Seattle, and no doggie until the morning. Yarrr.

Great Vegas trip. It was imasage's first and she had a good time. We did massive amounts of gambling and I was hitting slot jackpots left and right.

Here's something spooky: I'm playing video poker. Simon and Susie are watching. I burn through a few hands and then I get an interesting draw: three of a kind, 6's (poker hand of the beast!). I hold them and draw and end up with the three of a kind. Next hand: same damn thing! Three 6's. I hold them and they too end up being my hand. Next hand: Three 6's, AGAIN! Simon almost falls over. I hold the 6's and draw and this time pull another 6. That's four of a kind, suckas, and I win $250. Later that evening, I find myself at the Venetian bar with Simon. Susie has gone off to play some slots. I'm unable to resist the sweet siren song of the Wheel of Fortune machine, so I feed it a $20 and start playing. It's not long before I hit the red, white, and blue sevens and stuff my wallet with another $400! So yeah. That's $650 in about an hour! If you're worried that we spent the rest of the weekends amassing millions in gambling winnings and now we're going to leave you all behind as we spend the rest of our lives in the Bahamas partying with our other filthy rich friends, you may allay those fears now. We lost it all back, and then some. Ah well. The important thing is that we had fun.

For those of you still reading, it's time for a press release: vespa59 and imasage to Relocate to Bay Area. Yep, you heard me. We decided to take the mind-numbing commute, insanely high rent, and ludicrous choice for governor. So yeah... There you go. Looks like I'm gonna move around the end of April, and Susie will follow somewhere around mid-June. You're all very welcome to come for a visit as soon as we are settled in our mansion modest home over-priced shack.

See you there!

It's true. We really are stuck in the Vegas airport.

I won $20 on slots though.

Update: I lost the $20 on video poker, but it's ok, cause Susie's winning it back at Wheel of Fortune.

SOMEONE GET US THE HELL OUT OF HERE!

Holy shit, what is this, the mass exodus? This is lame. We're coming back to Seattle for a visit, but probably after April. Which means you won't be there. Which sucks.

congratulations on your move decision!

and, sorry everything is so shitty for you at work right now. re-org just sucks. probably the most stress i've experienced so far in my life is due to corporate reorganizations. they're so inhumane.

If you need a hand, I'm sure ol' Joe will give me some time off to help you move.

Thanks man! I'm hoping to get movers to handle most of it, but I might take you up on the offer.

By the way, after I'm moved in, I have an extra scooter you're welcome to use for Bay Area rallies.

You might want to talk with Viki about loning Persie McScootercrash a bike.

I'd settle for just being invited to a Bay Area rally. Ross and I can double-up on his banana-cream Bajaj.

Well, my Rally was BORN to be crashed, but suit yourself. As a newly (self) appointed representative of the Bay Area scooter scene, consider yourself invited to all future rallies. My couch awaits.
