Blogger Can You Spare A Dime

What stays in Vegas is my money but at least the Elvis was free, two for the price of one actually. I'm still not sure why the tall one didn't answer to Bubs when I called, shy I guess.

Other than the fine meals, some good spins on the Wheel of Fortune and excellent company, Spamalot made me laugh hard and Le Reve kept me astonished and mesmerized.

Also astonishing were the hookers who propositioned me, the drunk lady who tried to explain to me her slot machine secrets while I was clearly many more credits up than she was, and the amount I was able to eat each day.

Now I need a vacation.

I knew Chris Farley was alive. I just didn't realize he was hiding out in Vegas....as Elvis.

Bubs said...

While the fellow on the right appears to be sporting some fine Elvis hair, closer examination reveals...a wig. That and the fact he's wearing a white jumpsuit, and not the gold lame jacket, sadly proves that I was not able to meet you in Las Vegas.

Where did you stay? Hope you had an excellent time!

I got married in Vegas by a fat Elvis impersonator... I wore white go go boots and a shiny pink latex dress... ummmm yeah that didn't last long... ohh and I was about 6 months pregnant, squeezed into fetish gear and had some serious leg fat muffin topping it over the boots...

ummm needless to say we weren't married all that long...

VIVA LAS VEGAS!!!

Chris said...

I was thinking the exact same thing as Suze!

Valerie said...

I didn't see one Elvis when I was in Vegas! I guess I was hanging out at the wrong (or should I say right?) places.

Did you have a drink at the bar at the Wynn with the big waterfall/movie screen?

I wanted to see Le Reve but it was "dark" when I was there.

Sounds like you had a good time...I think.

BeckEye said...

I hope you didn't eat any bagels while you were in Vegas. Someone might get jealous...

Dale said...

He's alive but I'm not sure how well he's doing Suze, quite a paunch still.

We were at the Venetian Bubs and it was swell. You had a lot more style I must say.

Sounds hot just the same Shroom Monkey. Photos?

Just be glad only the top half of the photo is showing Chris, that's all I'm saying.

I got my Elvis and yours then Valerie. I did have some drinks across from the big screen and it was cool Valerie. If you get back soon, go see Le Reve, it'll blow your mind.

No bagels Beckeye, I'd hate to spark an international incident just for fun. Profit maybe but not for fun.

Mob said...

Glad you made it back safe if not financially sound.

I never saw an Elvi wandering around on the trip we took there either...I feel kind ripped off.

SkylersDad said...

I am probably one of the few people in the US that has not been to Vegas.

Blowing Shit Up With Gas said...

Did you photograph any of the hookers?

Allison said...

Sounds like a good time!

I am going to see Spamalot this weekend. Probably no Elvis crawling around London, but you never know.

Jake's Mom said...

Why does Priscilla never show up at the Elvi sightings??

Tanya Espanya said...

"... kept me astonished and mesmerized." - that's what I've been told, too! ;)

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Please tell me that the Elvi took you shopping for some new duds!

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

A Canuck amok in Vegas? Hooray!

X. Dell said...

Actually, Vegas isn't licensed for prostitution. But that doesn't keep the houses from advertising on the street (some corruption, huh?). I've heard the strip shows are pretty wild too. But I didn't do any of that when I was in Vegas when visiting last year--not because I was with my parents, but because I am cheap.

There is some surprisingly good food to be eaten there. I've heard so many good things about Spamalot, but I have yet to see it on Broadway.

Se any other good shows? Played anything other than slots?

I can imagine you in a James Bond scenario at the baccarat table.

Hot Lemon said...

oh, dear.

Beth said...

Damn; I've dated both those men! Did they have anything nice to say about me, Dale?

julia said...

I'd like to catch Bette Midler's show in Vegas.

mellowlee said...

those Elvises (Elvi?) are soooo funny! Awesome! I'm glad you had an astonishing, and mesmerizing holiday Dale.

Andi said...

Mmmm, want me a piece of those porkchop sideburns!

Chancelucky said...

Dale,
glad you had a good time in Las Vegas. I see that you found Elvis there, but did you find Jesus so you could set up the showdown?

Coaster Punchman said...

Did the hookers also comment on their slots?

Dale said...

I'm sorry I stole your Elvis sighting like that Mob. Is there a greeting card for that?

When you're ready, we'll have a blogging convention there Skyler's Dad. I think you'd enjoy it because if you can't manage to have fun in Vegas, you're already dead.

I only thought later BSUWG that I should have started talking into my sleeve to watch them try and run in those heels. No photos, sorry.

Hope you have a good laugh Allison. I'd heard it was good from a lot of people and set my expectations pretty low even though I like Monty Python. Except for a few bits that fell flat, it was great fun.

She's in surgery Jake's Mom.

You're talking about in bed right Tanya? I know it. Wait, that's not what I meant.

You can't afford to see me in stretch white polyester Barbara, believe me. Okay, maybe I got some new hair tips.

Just me, a lighter and some oily rags Dr. Monkey, it was a blast!

I can't even spell BackArat X. Dell so I stuck to slots and some of the video poker machines but only because they were sticky to begin with. I did wear a tux however. If you go back, check out the show called Le Reve that I mentioned at the Wynn hotel. Their buffet's excellent too.

Indeed Hot Lemon, indeed.

They asked me if you were still living in the ghetto and if you were lonesome tonight Beth. They smiled pretty big when I mentioned your name.

I think she starts there soon Julia. If you can't get tickets, you can always ride the circular escalators at Caesar's Palace and go wheeee!

I did, I did have an astonishing and mesmerizing (in parts) vacation Mel.

Even if they're press on ones Andi? I'll try and hook you up.

If only Chancelucky! I did see a midget selling discount helicopter tours and thought about approaching him.

No they didn't CP but I always knew where to go for loose change if I needed it.

Distributorcap said...

i thought elvis died? what do i know?

Dale said...

Elvis and / or Chris Farley are alive it seems DCap!

Chancelucky said...

Approaching the midget about the helicopter tours or approaching him for other reasons?

Dale said...

For sex of course Chancelucky! Who wouldn't do it with a midget?!

Jill said...

A vacation from vacation? you are a spoil brat, Dale!

Dale said...

It looks good on me Jill.
