We’re just about T-Minus 1 week until Vegas 2004 and I figured I’d run a retrospective of past Vegas trips… er, trip. Hopefully in five years this yearly Pre-Trip recap will have grown to epic proportions, but for now we only have one year to go on and we’ll have to extrapolate. I’ll also include my own predictions and fears about this year’s trip (currently scheduled for March 19th-22nd). Let’s get down to it.
Last year’s trip can only be called a “fucking success“. Starting with the drunken plane trip and our late-night buddy Ken, continuing to me and Scientist trudging around the Vegas airport drunk off our asses. The crotch-rot was bad, but memorable. The gambling was entertaining as all hell, due mainly to the fact that I would win $500, then lose it, then win it back. That’s the gambler’s orgasm, folks. I was able to eat a great meal. I had a blast in old-timey Vegas playing $2 craps. In short, it was 100% of what a trip to Vegas should be.
[UPDATE] I saw a fucking exotic bird show! [/UPDATE]
This year we’ve sadly lost some members of the contingent. As far as I know, Old Man Springer will not be joining us. To up the meloncholy factor, the Madd Scientist has decided to be domestic and stay back for the trip. The good news is that O’Neil is making a return engagement this year. The Steven Ejercito wildcard is always a factor. I’m planning on playing a good amount of poker this year, but always craps. ALWAYS. Looking forward to a good meal again at the Venetian’s steakhouse. I hope the crotch-rot will stay away, but I’ll have a 10 gallon bucket of Neosporin to make sure things don’t spiral out of control.
In honor of the Vegas Trip, I’m asking you all to post below your hopes, dreams, and aspirations of what will happen when we all get together in the desert. Make your own predictions. Will Scientist do a run-in? Will someone get arrested for jaywalking… or murder? Ladies: use your own predictions as a salve to sooth your jealous souls. You aren’t coming, but that doesn’t mean we can’t fun does it?
