Strip Sleepin #6

Wasted away again in Tropicanaville /
dreamin' 'bout my 24-hour bus-pass /
Some people say /
That I'm rotting my brain /
But I know, there's that one killer slot /

Perhaps it's time to bring back the native tradition of 'counting coup' on such sleeping denizens. Quietly sneak up and snatch away an article of clothing or touch them with the decorative "coup stick" or perhaps administer a joyful bit of bastinado.

Possibilities abound.

I went to the SanGennaro Italian festival (or whatever the name is) just west of the 215 of Flamingo tonight.

What a fucking ripoff...$10 to get in because I had a coupon discounting $4 (for 2 people). Nothing but tons of vendor tents with alll sorts of crap, overpriced food ($10 artichoke), overpriced beer, bad music, no fireworks like they advertised and carny rides like a third rate county fair. They did have a few pony rides for little kids and a lame petting zoo with a couple goats.

Tons of people though all packed into not enough room.

I don't care for Italian food so take this for what it is worth. The Italian food seemed pretty suspect as it was just tent kitchens slopping out whatever they thought would sell by drowning it in garlic an tomato sauce at excessive prices.

It was enough to placate my demanding girlfriend that I take her out....and wading through the crowds wore her out fast so it wasn't a complete loss.

I'll pass on the Italian Festival ripoff next year.

I did get a good laugh at the decent looking babe under the tent trying to sell condos. She looked very bored.

My gardener wants his hat back.
Please drop it off at the nearest Home Depot.

Hey Scum Man, thanks for the Gennaro review.

Couple of friends asked me if I wanted to go along, but I begged off - I had alcohol at home that needed drinking.

However, seeing as how you were with the GF, what do you think the prospects were like for a single guy there?

Prospects for a single guy?

Hard to say....there was plenty of women there. Possibly the bored chick at the condo sales tent is available? She didn't have much else to do besides get hit on.

Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether.

That, and the occasional ranting about nothing in particular.
