- Everyone lost money. In fact, I lost money before I even started to play!! I put my money in a machine to get change, and it ate my money!! Seriously, only I could figure out how to lose without even gambling!!
- Maryanne left her ID at the hotel. Apparently the laws are WAY strict in Connecticut and it was really a pain to get drinks WITH an ID. Poor Maryanne was not able to get drinks!
- Andy and Keith got into an argument with a waitress because they ordered drinks, she asked for their IDs, they gave them to her, then she WALKED AWAY!!! With their IDs!!! Andy chased her down and she told them they could only have drinks if they signed these stupid forms that state they're 21. Okay, question: isn't that what an ID does??
- I went home super early. Can't shake this jet lag. But, everyone had a really great time and at least I've now officially been to a casino. I don't think I'll do it again. I'd have the same ROI if I gave my money to someone on the street, except that they might actually need the funds and then I'd at least feel better about myself!!
He's so cute!

Me with Maryanne-- commemorating the fact that I already lost my money and Maryanne can't drink. We have such good luck...

I know that the whole world is mourning the loss of Heath Ledger, and
I also know that this is the 4th death that I've posted on this blog
since December 27th.
But, I do want to mention that Heath was a talented actor and one
with a great deal of promise. Certainly, I encourage you all to
watch Brokeback Mountain if you have not yet done so. I know, I
know, if you're a guy you feel weird about it. But, guys, it's a
FANTASTIC film and Heath's role was incredibly touching. He took
what could have been a pathetic, wasted role and turned it into
something touching, conflicted and strong. A man struggling between
society and personal desire. Incredible...
My thoughts are with his family, Michelle, and, of course, Matilda Rose.
