Atlantic City Inspires. Who Knew?

I just got back from a quick trip to Atlantic City. It was fantastic and just what I needed right about now. The drive alone was pretty entertaining. It was just me, my friend BVA and his father. The other person bailed on us. Turns out BVA's dad is pretty cool so we had a good time listening to music and shootin the shit. They are both musicians and so we listened to jazz the entire time we were in the car. BVA recently recorded a new CD so we had the pleasure of a preview before the release. As you can tell, I was in heaven. Then we got to the casino. We stayed at Showboat which contains the House of Blues. Our room was comped because dad (Don) really knows how to work the gambling system in AC. We didn't pay for rooms, most drinks, food, and other random things. At one point they decided that we should hit the craps table. Well, I don't know how to play so Don says he will buy me in and they will teach me as we go. Great, I love learning this stuff. Crap, Craps is a fast moving game! Following their lead I finally caught on and we all made a decent amount of money. Thanks guys! Today we spent part of our winnings outlet mall shopping. I don't think I have ever in my life gone shopping with two straight men before. Wahoo new shoes! I also discovered Don's interest in shock humor which was great fun. In the end it was a pretty amazing time. I heart Atlantic City. Tomorrow I'm getting myself to the library for sheet music. If all goes well I'll also get a tattoo in the evening. Tomorrow will be good but brunch on Sunday will be amazing. I can hardly contain my excitment!

You're adventuous in all the ways I am not - tatoos, gambling, shopping with straight men. Love it. Sounds like you had a kick-ass time. Looking forward to hearing good stories tomorrow at brunch :o)
