First things first.
If you are relatively new to this blog, you need to understand that I have an unusual love for the Wizard of Oz. I *heart* all things Oz. If you so desire to catch up with this phenomena you may do so by reading this...and this...or maybe this....and this....and let's not forget this.
There's more. Trust me. It's a sickness.
Now that we are all on board, let me get to the point of this post. Remember Patti? My Canadian, partying, gambling internet friend?
During my recent visit to Niagara Falls to visit her and a couple of other internet friends (see previous "internet safety" post before you lecture me...I understand the dangers...sort of) we hit the casino. At one point Patti started sashaying around the casino floor. She seemed aloof and giddy at the same time. Something was up, I could FEEL it. When she finally revealed where she was headed I lost my breath. She was VERY excited to show it to me. And I was VERY excited to see that lovely piece of metal. NOT so excited when that shiney-shoed girl from Kansas took my money. A lot of my money. But it just sucked me in like a tornado with it's sparkly images and extra fun bonus rounds and Bose surround sound built in to the seat.
Yes. Bose Surround Sound during a tornado. It was AWESOME!
There is no picture in existence of me playing said machine. Because we were not allowed to take pictures in the casino. And you know we followed the rules, right? RIGHT? *cough-cough* The truth is it is residing on a cell phone and I don't have it yet. HOWEVER....you gotta love google!!
Here is that lovely beauty in all her glory.
And if you are so inclined to view a little video and watch it in all its bonus round loveliness?
This machine did NOT show me the same kind of love that I so richly deserve. I've been a faithful follower practically my entire life. And there was just NO LOVE, PEOPLE! Those 3 free tequila drinks were the most expensive drinks I've ever had. But those images...those sounds...the action....those bright lights....it was almost too much for me to handle.
But not so much that I had to walk away.
Step away from the sparkly shoes, Cheri. Just step away.
Somehow tequila makes a girl hard of hearing.
