Vegas Quickie

This will be a quick update as I'm writing while my brother takes a short nap. He still hasn't figured out how to sleep in Vegas, which admittedly takes a lot of practice. This is my brother, making sure I have a safe photograph for blog viewing. The fu manchu with the "soul patch" is recent facial attire. Jen (and most women) are voting no. Even he calls it the "barbed wire fence for women." I think the goal was something Hachem-esque and it does seem to be helping his table image. He specifically added the "soul patch" to try to get some distance from the look of Vito's lover in the Sopranos. I think it's still too close for comfort.

Wednesday night, we headed over to the Venetian to meet up with Jen, John and Jen's uncle John. We stopped by the poker room because my brother hadn't seen it yet. He was encouraged to see they were spreading some stud (with a lower rake than the Mirage). I was pleased on a different front; Tom McEvoy was there. I saw Tom just briefly when the room opened and really haven't spent any quality time with him since the WSOP last year.

I've been in Vegas about six times in the last five months. I'm constantly surprised at how fast this city changes. Michael Craig stayed at the Boardwalk in December. Today, this is all that is left; a clown facade, awaiting execution.

Every time we walk by the Aladdin, another piece is gone.

I accept change. But I also know that I am a person that needs a sense of history. Vegas should have gotten the lead in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

I promise more updates soon. I will also try to get a picture of my brother's current collection of "escort" cards.

Was your brother covering up the statue or feeling it up?

Covering it up. There was a second shot though. ;-)

Amy, you're freak'n hilarious! As I take a break from the drudgery of being a programming whore, I relax to the risque-titled and ever-do-witty commentary that used to make this place fun each day. The Sopranos reference was choice.
