Guess who? :)

So, I barely slept last night - although I would usually chalk that up to pre-Vegas excitement, it is par for the course over the past few months dealing with insomnia.  

I arrived at the airport this morning and, once again, was surprised by the number of people who still have no clue how to get through the TSA check expediently.  One guy was trying to carry on 3 small suitcases --thus causing the line to slow to a crawl as he was notified that he would actually have to check 2 of his suitcases.  People people people - we have all been through airports and know the rules - you re not going to get around baggage fees by claiming every piece of your luggage is carry on.  Just stop it - please.




A friend of mine picked me up at the airport and we stopped at Green Valley Ranch - never been there before but it seemed like a low key place to play.



I grabbed a Starbucks cold brew and caffeinated myself after the early start to the day and headed over to The Cromwell to check in.

Although the room is small - I would say it is a "sexy" room:



Video links (since I was informed imbedding them did not work for some forum members)

So, I am settling in and relaxing a bit, might the a quick nap and then hit the Strip!

Welcome back.

Can you make me less confused. What happened to your blogs and why did you change from bcd and then the other one, then nothing and now the other one again? Hope that makes sense, but sure if you want them mentioned in name so I am being cryptic.
Expect the worst and you will never be disappointed.

Well, I had blogged using blackchipdiary but ran into some issues as certain people IRL knew that name and I did not want them knowing about my casino exploits -- then, I switched to epicesquire and have been using that since (all prior blog posts were migrated to that site)

You're welcome. You might want to fix the pictures though. Some aren't showing.

Hmmm they are all showing for me...

Anyone else having an issue with the images?

So I just went looking for ice at The Cromwell and, after a fruitless search, asked one of the housekeeping staff where the ice machine was -- she informed me that there is no guest access to the ice machines -- hotel guests must either find housekeeping staff to obtain the ice or call the front desk and they will send a bellman up with it -- this seems very strange to me

The bottom 2 aren't showing, at least on my end. And the picture of the hallway loads very slow. Causing everything to freeze for a minute. Could just be my phone.

The last two images are actually short videos - could be your phone - I am on my laptop on hotel WiFi and they are loading immediately
