The Ramblings of a Redneck Diva

Ladies' Night
Mood:  vegas lucky
Topic: It's a good thing
I won some money at the casinos on New Year's Eve!

We have several casinos around here. One is the BEST casino, Quapaw Casino. (My children spontaneously break into the commercial jingle upon hearing the word "Quapaw" now) Then we have the Kinda Big, Not So Fancy Casino - the Stables. Now we have the Big Fancy Casino - Buffalo Run. They have Ladies' Night on Mondays, if you haven't heard me speak of it, which if you read my blog, you have heard me speak of it. We also have the Tiny Little Hole in the Wall Casino - the Miami Casino. This little closet of a casino is home to the Popcorn Nazi. She's not a nice person. We also have a Travel Plaza Casino, but it's not actually in town. Get your gas, win some money. Further out of town, actually in Missouri, is the GINORMOUS New Casino - Bordertown. And down close to the lake is The Casino I Have Only Been to Once - Grand Lake Casino. Ooh and I almost forgot about The Lucky Turtle. I call this the Multi-purpose Casino of the Universe. On-site there is a casino, cafe, gas station, truck/car wash, and convenience store. And if you like and it's the right time of year, you can walk a few paces to the west and you're at the Wyandotte Pow-wow grounds. Now that's gambling!

Anyway, I won some money at Quapaw Casino (47 whole dollars!!!!!) first, then won some more at The Stables, except I have no idea really how much I won because I kept playing it down, then playing it back up again. It kept me occupied for several hours. I am not complaining. I am quite the Blackjack Princess, if I must say. Not quite ready for the big-time tables soon to be coming to Quapaw Casino, but that electronic, $2 a bet stuff is rockin' AWESOME!

AND tonight is Ladies' Night at the Big Fancy Casino!

Can anyone say "Diva needs an intervention"?

Oh No! I just found that you have me in your links as the coolest farm chick ever. How am I ever going to live up to that, Kiki?

Congratulations on your wins!

If y'all win a bunch of $ - please schedule a trip to Montana - where every bar, restaurant, gas station, and port a potty is a casino...

As for me, I don't put any money in those machines. If I'm in one of those places - my dough is spent on food & drink - instant gratification! Or was that drink & food? Drink & drink?

But you ARE the coolest farm chick ever! Nothing to live up to, Moo! I simply stated the obvious, dear. *grin*

Ooh, Montana is definitely on my list of places to go! Not because of the casinos (But now that I know this...) but because there are some seriously cool bloggers from up y'all's way! I'd love to meet up with some of you someday, unless you think I'm totally strange and somewhat psycho. But I gotta win big at the casino first, lol.

I hear ya on the instant gratification thing - if it wasn't for the free soda -- and in some casinos popcorn -- I'm not sure I'd spend some much durn time in those places. I load up on free Coke when I'm at Ladies' Night. Of course, I'm swollen from all the sodium the next day, but by golly it was free!

I'm partial to the slot machines. Those things are SO enticing; but I haven't pulled a handle in years. We have been waiting for that "winning feeling" to visit a casino just around the corner from our house. I say, if you walk out with even a dollar more than when you entered, you have won. It's really just about entertainment. You sound thoroughly entertained!
