On the Road

I haven't slept too much in the past week. I've had too much on my mind. Everyone keeps asking me if "I'm nervous about moving to Vegas." Should I be?

Here's a link to a couple of cool pics of where I'll be working the next two months. The sight of the Rio gets me all fired up. Thanks to Flip Chip for the photo.

Paris is engaged. She was even nice enough to call and "break the news to me." Oh well. I always liked Nicky better. Let's see of Paris' nuptials to Paris will last longer than Nicky and that weird stockbroker.

Deep Throat has been identified. And its an ex-G man like a lot of insiders suspected. I wonder what Tricky Dick would have said?

Law & Order shot a new episode one block from my brother's apartment, right in front of the bodega where I usually buy the newspaper or gatorade. I swear I saw Chris Noth. Is he back or something?

There are 70+ poker bloggers heading to Las Vegas, so CJ made up a handy list of people's arrival info, hotel, and cell phone numbers. I went down my list today and ended up crank calling my fellow bloggers. I spoke in an Hindu accent and pretend to be Janeesh from Party Poker. All the bloggers know that Party Poker outsources their support staff to India, so when you have to contact them you always get someone with an accent. Anyway, Chris Halverson nailed me right away when I tired crank call him.

Yes, I got a new cellphone. It was a fuckin' nightmare. I bought a new one last year after Coventry and the guy ripped me off. I should have gotten a free upgrade but he charged me. I foolishly paid. One month later it wouldn't charge so he had to send it back to the company to get it fixed. He gave me a shitty replacement phone and said it would take 4-6 weeks. At week 5 I walked over to the store and saw that it was empty! He fuckin' skipped town with my new phone. Verizon told me that I was fucked and could come into the store to get a new phone, but definitely not anything better than I was given. I was lazy and pissed so I blew them off. When I realized that I needed a good phone for Las Vegas I decided to get a new one. I was concerned about the reception in a casino because I would need to relay information as quickly as possible. Anyway, the chick wanted to charge me $250 for a new phone and told me I had to wait until August to get that same phone for $50. The phone I would have settled for was out of stock. I was pressed for time so I fuckin' spent the big bucks and got a top shelf phone. That's so rare for me, I'm not one to get "expensive items"... but I figured I could use it as a business expense.

Before I leave, some closing thoughts... I wonder who will be the first blogger to puke? Who will be the first blogger arressted? Who will be the blogger who gets the most lapdances? And how many bottles of SoCo will AlCantHang drink by himeself?

Here are some pictures around NYC that I took in the last week or so. Consider the following picture gallery part of my last entry in New York for a while.

Damn, I'm gonna miss New York. Anyway, see ya. Thanks to everyone for their support and all the good vibes everyone has sent me. Thanks for reading, guys and girls, and I hope you continue reading about my exploits in Vegas. I really could not have gotten this far without all of you. Thanks a bunch. Next time we speak, I'll be in Vegas!
