Saturday visit to a casino

Anthony and I went to Casino Del Sol today for a little social outing.

My schedule these days is such that I can handle about one thing like this a week. If I ever figure out a way to make a living with just taking pictures, writing, blogging, Tweeting, and farting (the last one will likely be the most lucrative) it will be a life changing magnificent experience. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate my job in a huge way. I've just always wondered what it would be like to make a living while still getting to pick and choose what I get to do in a given day or week.

Anyway, Anthony had a rough morning and wanted to get out of the house and it was his idea to go. He had a couple of drinks, I played some slots, we ate tacos and burritos at Abuelitas inside the casino, and I came home with nearly $300 in slot winnings. We were there about three hours and it was an enjoyable outing.

I didn't take one of my cameras today, I just had my iPhone. The casino doesn't allow photos to be shot on the casino floor so any picture that is taken has to be done in a low key way.

I did shoot a few from the phone camera. One of the pictures is of a woman who was sitting at the table next to us and had a low level resemblance to reality TV star Kim Kardashian. I thought she did at the time, but now that I've reviewed the picture on my laptop screen I realized that she really doesn't.

When I shot the photo she was busy eating. I think the woman behind her knew what I was up to.

I suck at being sneaky. But, I walked out with more money than I walked in with... so in the end, I win.

The always photogenic Anthony.
If that hand could talk.

look like Kim Kardashian at all,
