not so much crafty

but I just had to share the BEST WEEKEND EVER in vegas story with everyone :) I went to vegas this past weekend and I was the luckiest I've ever been. Probably for the rest of my life. If you're going to vegas and don't mind shelling out 44 bucks for the new Price is Right Live show at Bally's, I totally suggest you go for it! Tom and I went for the hell of it, and we had tons of fun doing the practice questions with our little controllers. Once the game started, they called my name first!!! It was surreal, and since I was the first one down, I got to pick my podium (and of course I chose green!). Our host Roger Lodge (of Blind Date) came out and started the bidding on some flatware. I got to bid last and I listened to the crowd to bid a dollar, which ended up being closest to the actual price!! I ended up winning all of my prizes (I was the only one the entire game who won their entire showcase) and when I got to claim my prizes at the end, I took it all for cash value :) In the end I ended up winning over 800 from the Price is Right, and I even won an additional 250 from a nickle slot the next day! Usually when I come home from vegas, I'm either breaking even (if I'm lucky) or down about 100. soooooo.. yea.. I'll never be this lucky again.. although I will try my luck again this weekend when I go back to vegas with my family!
