another three miles. Walking again -- this is just not a friendly running town, at least not this part of it. I need to go out in the morning to get some good pace to it, so I'm not dodging the drunken tourists (and their kids in their strollers!!).
On the upside, I did decide to get over my righteousness about this place and put down a little money on the slots. I put $11 in the Texas Tea machine (was there any doubt that I would choose another one? Really?), and about ten minutes later cashed out with $17. Not bad. Then I took that ticket to Wheel of Fortune, where I really didn't understand the game, but just kept hitting buttons until it hit and I ended up with $21. So I cashed out again and headed back to the MGM Grand, calling it a night. So I nearly doubled my money. I don't understand exactly what I was doing at the time, but I guess it worked. Wahoo. Whee. Whatever.
It's still not too late for me to call it an early evening, so peace out, folks. I promise more substantive content soon enough, and I still owe Ellie a meme, but those are not for today!
