Love All, Serve All

Well, well, well. Where to begin?

First off, I'd like to thank Joe Speaker for adding me to his blogroll. I guess my readership is now the spambots plus 1. The pressure to update regularly is building.

So, what to focus on today?

I'm going to Vegas in January. I have always wanted to make a March Madness pilgrimmage. What? March Madness isn't in January? Yeah, I never quite make it. In this case, March was looking awfully pricey, and my friend got an offer for free nights at Bally's in January. Combine that with a fare special from the local airline and you find Jackmama and his friend re-scheduling their trip to the Mecca. Of course, Bally's has to try to mess with the plan--you can only get the special pricing (some free, some not) for two of the nights. Well, we didn't just fall off the turnip truck, you know. We'll take the free Saturday and Sunday night stay, and then parlay all that savings into Thursday and Friday night stays at the Hard Rock.

I love the Hard Rock. There are legitimate complaints about the place, but I don't care. It houses two of my favorite restaurants in the whole world (Pink Taco and Mr. Lucky's), and I can play craps in peace. What do I mean, in peace? The Hard Rock likes to project an ambience of "cool," and so there is loud music playing all day. I don't understand why some people complain about the loud music. There is no slot machine noise! How can Jimi Hendrix at a decent volume be more offensive than "WHEEL.....OF......FORTUNE!!!!" over and over?
