Glad you had fun! $15, wow, you and Shrek are big spenders! I don't gamble anymore, I find it works better if I just drop my money off the gambling boat deck directly into the river.

That's how I feel about it. I stood behind Shrek and egged him on when he was $70 ahead...should've stayed quiet. Cheap entertainment for a little bit and it's out of our system for a while. I was even boozing it up two nights in a row...had a gin and tonic one night, the next had a whiskey sour (and remembered why I don't like them) and another G&T. That's got me held for another 6 months or so.

Gee, the one time I went to Vegas, I went with $100 to gamble with and came home with $115.00. All I did was play the slots.

Nice little profit!

Up at 2 am, couldn't sleep. Maybe I will go back to bed around 5 for a couple of hours.

One of the benefits of being retired, I can sleep any time I want or stay up all night. I can do the dishes at 3 a.m. or even vacuum. But when you have to go to work the next day, not being able to sleep really screws you up. Fortunately for you this happened on the weekend. Do you want me to sing you a lullaby like I used to for my babies? When they wouldn't sleep and were cranky, I would sit in my baby rocking chair and softly hum them to sleep. It worked every time.

Just got done watching our newest obsession: Cutthroat Kitchen. DH even abandoned the US Open as well as the Iowa Hawkeyes to watch it. Now off to water the parched plants.

I just finished eating two Canadian bacon sandwiches. Earlier I made the rounds to a couple grocery stores, which of course were packed being Saturday afternoon. And now I am watching what is fast becoming a stupid movie regardless of its cast.

Would that movie be called Pain and Gain? This is not an endorsement, do not waste your money on this movie...it is terrible.

"The Big Year". It's about bird watching. I keep waiting for it to break loose and become a really good movie. I mean; Steve Martin, Owen Wilson, Jack Black... but nooooo. Nothing better on though. I don't get into college ball.
