Vegas Trip Report 1

So I flew out to Vegas on June 3rd after I got off work. My friend Mike and I met at my girlfriend’s house, who was kind enough to drive us to the airport. (Thank you :) ) We hopped on our plane, ready to hit the strip in 5.5 hours. We knew we had to hurry because those guys handing out hooker cards are bound to run out sooner or later. We find 2 seats together, next to a girl in the window seat. Little did we know that said girl was a few cards short of a full deck, and also equipped with super hearing. We learned this rather quickly though as we proceeded to sit on the airplane for 2.5 hours before taking off. The pilot would update us regularly that there was “lots of weather out there” and “still weather out there.” Of course there’s weather out there. There’s ALWAYS weather out there. What he meant of course was bad weather. The funny thing is, it was clear and sunny and we had to wait over an hour for the doom clouds to appear. Sweet, glad we waited so now we have to wait. Anyway, so pyschogirl is the type who talks to herself and yells things like “ARRGHH WHY AREN’T WE FLYING YET!” I tried to explain that there was quite a lot of weather out there, but she would have none of it. “I JUST WANT TO BE IN VEGAS,” she shouted. And I just wanted a tranquilizer dart large enough to knock out a wooly mammoth. Sometimes we don’t get what we want.

So we finally take off and get to Vegas without any problems. Oh, other than nutso having to go to the bathroom 6 times. If your bladder is the size of a thimble, DON’T PICK A WINDOW SEAT. Although I probably shouldn’t be too upset at her lack of seat selection skills – at least she didn’t piss on me….as far as I know.

So we land in Vegas, hitch a cab to the Rio, and meet up w/ my other friend, Justin, who got our room comped for the week. We head up to the room to unpack and rest a bit. Then we walk in and see a very oddly placed window.

If you can’t make it out, that is a window above one of the beds which looks directly into the shower. Now don’t get me wrong. I can see where this would be a great little addition to the room, but not a room with 3 dudes. And I mean, really, who puts a window there? Anyway, we covered it up with a hand towel so as to avoid any accidental full frontals. That’s -EV for sure.

At this point, we were all pretty hungry so we went down to the All American Bar and Grill. It’s about 3:00 am and we just want a little snack. I ordered the chicken tender appetizer. Apparently appetizer means HUGE MEAL in Vegas. I didn’t even finish half of it. At the end of the meal, the three of us decided this was a great time to try out this fancy game everyone seems to play – credit card roulette. It kinda sucked that there were only 3 of us, making the game a rather short one, but whatever. We had the waitress pick one card, then another. Whoever’s card isn’t selected has to pay the whole bill. Mike’s card gets picked first and Justin and I have to sweat it out. Then she picks mine! Wahoo! My first foray into the world of degen CCRoulette was a successful one! The trip did not start out well for Justin. On top of paying the bill, he lost a good bit in the pit waiting for us to arrive. Southwest sent both Mike and I $50 vouchers for our flight being delayed. A nice, unexpected gesture. I wonder if they’ll send Justin a voucher for costing him $ in the pit?

In the 'no' or 'sad' will be caught in their predicament? If you know that this road is not suitable for their own, and then go down the results are only in vain, why not immediately abandon the start?

We are going to do something Nike Lunar Mens before, often consider whether we can do it, and then start to doubt ourselves.Life can be reopened at any time, there is no age limit, no gender distinction, as long as we have the determination and confidence, dream, even to 70 years old can be achieved.There is a movie, talking about a young man, because their long time to love a woman to marry a wealthy business, very painful. Since the self-abandonment, broken cans broken, drunk every day drunk, Nike Air Max Shoes mess with friends. The town of people met him, have eyebrows, head-on people who have to avoid, for fear of provoke the wicked.

Yesterday's success Ye Hao, failure Ye Hao, today can be re-start, to re-develop their own life.

'Fear' is just a process     My ear blowing through the biting wind, the heart could not help but rise a feeling: that is afraid. Dark night, Cheap Nike Shoes a long field on the road I ride alone crazy walk on the way home, my heart again and again to tell myself not afraid! But when I passed a cemetery, my heart could not help speed up the speed of jumping, eyes from time to time to look at the cemetery to see two eyes, my mind suddenly emerge all the ghost stories I have seen. I am afraid of 'ghosts possessed', my heart and told myself that is just a superstition. But I could not help but speed up the speed of cycling, really want to immediately home! But the road or need to step by step, and now feel this road is so long, as if Nike Womens Heels Shoes not the end of the road. My surface is calm, but the heart is afraid! Finally saw the dawn of victory, my heart relaxed a little. When the light reaches the place, the heart is full of joy. In fact, there are a lot of life we ​​did not dare to try the first time, but you do not try, you can not get the kind of heart from the heart of joy, you can never win another of their own. Some people may say: I failed, how to do? I am afraid of failure, so I do not challenge Authentic Men's Nike Shoes I can not do things. If you think so wrong, the world is not only a successful life, there is no only a lifetime of failure. People always have setbacks in life, you face you did not do things, you retreat, that you are very weak! If you choose to challenge, to overcome, even if you fail, you will feel confident. Because you did it, failed to sum up experience from scratch! As the lyrics said, 'do not experience the wind and rain, how can we see the rainbow, no one can casually succeed.' In my opinion is afraid of just an excuse in life, overcome the fear of just need a process, the length of the process is the need for your own definition. There are many celebrities in ancient and modern, they are not born is a successful person. Their success is the need to step by step down to earth, they are afraid, but also failed. But they are afraid of the front and did not retreat, but to overcome! People see is always their brilliant life, people will never see the brilliant life behind. We can put in the first time in the fear, as another life in their own. You can not let the cowardly oneself live in the world at the same time, so that you will provoke ridicule Official Nike Womens Shoes and irony, so you are going to destroy that cowardly oneself. This process is a step towards your success. All in all, fear is just a process, the length of the process just need you slowly to consider their own. The process may be full of excitement, failure, etc., but I hope that every friend must go to challenge the process, always remember 'do not experience the rain and rain can see the rainbow.''Bird's Nest' chief electrician   In March 2009, a film called 'Rainstorms' was shot in the 'Bird's Nest' boot film, the film is the 'Bird's Nest' contact builders - Tan Shuangjian's struggle for the prototype.
