A Winner and a Couple of Losers



And the winner is number 4, McVal! Random.org liked her the best. McVal please send me your info and I'll get the money right out to you!

And I am sorry to say that Den and I didn't win anything. We ran right through the winnings from last time. I'm totally fine with this too. You know how I like to pinch a penny or two but this was free money that we blew so all is good in my book and we got a free vacation.
I didn't take any pictures this time. There twernt a Big Bird to be found. LOL. We didn't go to the Strip, we explored off the beat and path casinos. In the end, it was a nice trip. It did take a few days to dry us out though. So I guess that means that it was a good trip. I also had a few words for a snotty woman. I will blame it on all the Amaretto and cranberry that I drank.
We earned a free buffet so after we stood in line forever and handed the coupon over to the woman, she informed us that we needed to cash that coupon in for another coupon. Hmmmm, redundant but fine. She told us to cut to the front of the line since we had already stood in line. Yup, I bet you guessed how that went. So we went and got a second coupon and cut in line. A prissy little snot decided cutting wasn't cool. And pointed it out loudly. I then told her the story possibly with a bit of slurring. At that point, I was fine with slurring my words a smidge-Den was having a hard time standing. WAIT, I DO HAVE A PICTURE OF DEN!
I took it with my cell, so sorry. But Den was drinking a whiskey and a beer as one round. We had more than our share of rounds.
Anyways, back to the prissy little snot. She was not happy even after I told her the story. And I was drunk feeling good, so I finally got sick of trying to be nice and asked her if she was going to have a tantrum. I don't talk to people like that but it worked quite well and she decided that she was just kidding.
We did score a bunch of round trip tickets and I didn't even have to get bumped off of the plane. Den and I signed up for a Spirit credit card. You get a bunch of free tickets just for signing up. And you know how I love free stuff.
When we got back, I got a mailer saying that I had earned three free nights at one of the hotels out there. Why didn't I get all of this stuff before we left? Den said it is a sign from the Vegas gods that they want us back. Well if they want us bad enough, they can send me some money.
Have a dry week,
Sonya Ann

McVal-Send me your info and I'll get everything out to you!!
I took Den's pic with my cell. For some reason, the pictures are terribly small when I use it. I couldn't be bothered with an actual phone this time around. I could barely keep track of myself.

Sonya Ann said...

Frances-Thank you! We are already trying to figure out when we can get back. We need an intervention. Bahaha.

sluggy-Thank you for being quiet. I appreciate that one. Looking back on the trip I was a little more intoxicated than I thought. The flight attendants were giving me a hard time saying that I fell asleep and was spilling out into the aisle. Everyone is a comedian.
