Twice during the night there was some commotion in the hallway that woke us up, and then there was the alarm that someone before us had set to six AM, but other than that it wasn't a bad sleep. We woke around eight and got ready for breakfast.
Having drunk our dinner we were FAMISHED so we headed down to the Grand Lux Cafe where we got a nice yummy breakfast.
With our bellies full we sat down and some machines and played for awhile. We both got a morning cocktail(screwdriver for me and a bloody mary for Paula) and played a while longer. Me breaking even and Paula winning on the dollar slots.
Finally the booze and lack of sleep from the night before hit us and it was back up to the room where Paula played around on the computer and I took a wonderfully relaxing bath in the huge tub while reading my book. Oh that was just heaven!! It left me relaxed yet refreshed.
After, we uncorked a bottle of wine and talked for awhile before we got ready and went to the wax museum. As usual, it was wonderful. We took tons of pictures and it was so fun. Well worth the price of admission even though I forgot my coupons.
After that we stopped off at the pizza place at the food court where Paula was a good girl and got a salad and I got a slice of deep dish.
Back up in the room we discovered they had come in for the turn down service and left us chocolates on the pillows. Woohoo.
Then it was time to shower and get dressed up for the Phantom show.
It was amazing as always. I was soooooooo happy that we went. Paula was amazed by the show and was floored by the whole production. I just felt very happy that we got to go on our perfect little weekend.
After we got back we had some cocktails in the room and talked a lot. It was cool, but we decided that it was time to go down and gamble more.
We hit a good run on a Sopranos penny slot. We kept winning but the streak turned bad and we ended up losing. It was okay though because we had a helluva good time doing it and it lasted a looooong time.
We decided it was time to pick up some pizza and head back up to the room. That is where we are now. Paula has retired to bed and I will follow shortly but I had to type out this blog before I forgot some stuff.
Speaking of forgetting details...this morning when Paula and I were heading for breakfast we ran into Joey Buttafucco.
Okay, it wasn't REALLY Joey Buttafucco but he sure looked like him! He had on a white wife beater with his massive amount of grey chest hair showing through the top, a pair of running shorts and some cute white socks with black bunnies or something similar on them, pulled all the way up with his sneakers. Now that I think about it, I'm not sure he was as much Joey Buttafucco as Pauly Walnuts from the Sopranos...either way, you get the idea.
He came down on the elevator with us, it was around nine in the morning. He mentioned that us girls were up early. We laughed and said we were starving because we had drank our dinner. He told us that he tried to place a sports bet the night before but they told him he couldn't...that is why he was up at the ungodly hour of nine in the morning. He started advising us where to go to breakfast, but we told him where we wanted to go and he followed us down in the second elevator to the casino floor, telling us about how the other food place was closer but the one we wanted had a better selection.
When we reached the casino floor he asked us if we knew where to go and Paula piped up: "Yes, we know right were to go!" Even though we didn't because I'm pretty sure he would have asked to join us once we got there. Heh.
Okay...it's way late and I need to go to bed.
Flight home tomorrow. :-(
