Thursday Night Off
I was hanging out at home tonight (before work) waisting as much time as humanly possible. I was hoping for a phonecall from working telling me not to come in. They totally over-staffed us this week because of the Cisco Systems convention staying in our hotel. We have over 3000 people from Cisco staying at the MGM this week and both Monday and Tuesday nights it was crazy!!!! I loved it. There is nothing I like more than people on a "field trip" to vegas with corporate credit cards who aren't afraid to spend money!!!! Anyway, I'm sitting at home waiting for the call because I knew Cisco had an event tonight and the restaurant was probably going to be dead - but the call never came!!! I thought for sure they were going to call me off work tonight and I was really hoping they would. So, I packed my work bag and headed out the door with a sad face. I'm halfway to the strip and sitting in a tiny bit of traffic when the phone rang and my manager told me I didn't need to come in tonight. I KNEW IT!! Why can't they ever get their shit together and call me before I leave the house?? UGH! Oh well. I decided to head to the Fashion Mall since I was almost to the strip and I haven't done any quality shopping in the past few weeks. If you've been keeping up then you'll remember that the last time I was on a shopping spree at the Fashion Mall, I was very rudely called into work with NO notice on my day off and I was unable to finish shopping for a belt. BTW - I am still waiting for my knockoff to arrive in the mail.
Something is seriously wrong with my blogger because I am unable to post any pictures and this causes a huge dilemma for me. I'm the picture girl dammit!!!!!!!
Anyway, I'm happy to say that I'm off tonight and I'm off tomorrow and it's almost like a weekend - woo hoo! My first order of business for tomorrow is to get my hair done at 9:00 a.m. I'm having the color touched up and I'm getting a trim and it's VERY MUCH needed. My hair is a mess right now. Can't wait to get it done!!!!
What's up with this JonBenet Ramsey stuff? I was REALLY excited to see that they finally made an arrest after all of these years. I was honestly thrilled for the parents because I know a lot of people think they did it - but I never bought into that theory. I think there's something else going on and I was happy to see this case put to rest. BUT NO!!!!! They have to splash this new stuff all over the news about how nothing actually fits into place and this guy very well might not be the killer after all. I mean, he said he picked the girl up from school, but it was winter vacation for christ sakes. He also said that he drugged her, but there were no drugs found in her system. I'm at a loss. All I know is that he looks like a serial killer for sure. What a weirdo!!
After shopping for a few hours, I stopped by my favorite Thai food place and got some dinner to bring home. I love thai food with a passion. I think I eat it at least twice a week if not more. Anyway, I'm seriously slacking in the 45 SNG Challenge and it ends this Sunday. So, I sat down and played two $5.00 games. The first one I played, I went out in 12th place. YUCK! The 2nd one I played is still in session. As it is now though, I'm in the money, but I'm severely short stacked and hoping to double up so I can get some more points. Okay, I got 5th place and I'm plenty happy with that. I was so short stacked so I'm just happy to have come in the money.
I'm hoping to play some live poker tomorrow. Craps would be fun too and then of course we can't leave out Lucky Lemmings - my new slot machine of choice!!
