No more graveyard
Last night was my last night at the Red Rock. Yay!! I am officially done working the graveyard shift (hopefully forever). Today I had off and tomorrow I start my new job at the MGM. Diego is a much more upscale restaurant, and my training reflects that. I have to go through ten days of training before I can be on the floor alone. The first three nights I have to run food. Those trays can be pretty heavy, but I guess it's a good way for me to learn the table numbers and the dishes that we serve.
The good news is that I have off Saturday, which happens to be MiamiDon's birthday. I made reservations for us at TBones Chophouse which is a really nice steakhouse at the Red Rock. After that we plan on hitting the NLHE tables over at the Red Rock. We've only played there once, so it'll be fun to check it out again. They have a really nice poker room and it's always crowded. I hope to break this losing streak I've been having in the cash games.
I'm off Sunday too which works out perfectly because that's when Mookie and RoccoBoxer will be here. I'm SOOOO looking forward to meeting up with all of them and playing in a tourney or two.
I was unable to play in the WWdn tonight because I had to sleep half the day and then I had to run a bunch of errands. The good thing is that I got all of Don's birthday presents and I got my dad's father day gifts and I got my nails done, a pedicure, went to the bank and had my car washed. Not bad huh?? I also picked up Thai food for dinner. I guess I'll miss the mookie tomorrow too because I'll be at my new job. Work is really putting a cramp in my poker lifestyle. I'm wondering if I'd make more money as a server or as a poker dealer?? I'm gonna give the serving thing some time, but If I hate it, I might try the dealing thing. It's an idea for me to ponder.
And last but not least, here's an um... interesting exhibit that will be opening here in Vegas on my birthday - I'll have to clear my schedule...
Las Vegas Exhibit To Feature Preserved Corpses
LAS VEGAS -- You can see lots of bodies in Sin City, but they're usually alive.
An exhibition that opens in Las Vegas later this month will feature 22 corpses. The bodies are preserved with liquid plastic in a variety of life-like poses.
Promoters are calling "BODIES, The Exhibition" anatomy as art. But critics have said that the exhibition is unethical and gross.
Visitors will get to touch some human organs, such as a brain, liver and heart. The display opens June 23 at the Tropicana hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip.
