The good news is that I didn't have to wait too terribly long.
I got the call for my audition today and after asking about my availability it has been determined that the only shift I can work is swing, which I already knew.
So, after I nail my audition and get hired into the illustrious world of the Casino's I'm going to have to figure out a way to get the proper amount of sleep on the days that I'm stuck working both jobs.
Maybe I should have taken up Roulette instead?

For those of you unfamiliar with casino shifts, swing is either 7pm - 3am or 8pm - 4am.  This is going to make life interesting.  I'm hoping that I can pick up 3 shifts per week and if I get really lucky one of those shifts will be on a day that I don't work at my retail job.
The other two days are going to be complicated with power naps.
I have been told that Poker is sexier than Craps

Of course this is slaughtering my chickens before they even hatch.  I actually have to go through with the audition and conquer my nerves and the table before I can actually plan working multiple jobs.
The other thing is that once a casino hires you, you have to go out and spend money on a sheriff's card and everything else that goes with that which is pretty much a $150 right to work tax if you ask me.
However, them's the rules as laid out in Las Vegas and I'm just a guy looking for a job.

In other news, I am now the proud owner of a Black Jack felt to go with my Craps and Roulette.  One day I'll just own a whole casino!

Lego Craps, Poker and BJ - Get the kids hooked early


  1. one tryout, one offer - well done grrouchie.

    1. Tryout this coming Saturday
      Offer hopefully immediately following lol.

      But, I'll take your positive attitude and run with it.

  2. These are the images that come up in my random searches. Find me other chicks posing on casino game tables and I will use them.
    Is that good for you vato?

  3. Act like you own the joint. Get the nerves later :).

    Good lucl!


    1. what I'm thinking of doing is working extra late on Saturday.
      Normally I do a 7-4. That gives me too much time to think about things.
      So, if I do like a 10-7.
      Give myself enough time to get some food in me, change and head down - I won't have time to over think anything.
      Just show up, do some payouts, make a joke or three and knock 'em dead.

  4. The pictures are friggin awesome!...keep em up...Sorry Carmel..

  5. I vote for more brunettes or redheads, they're my favorite. MORE REDHEADS!

  6. Yeah,
    I had to include the pics to keep people interested :)

  7. Good luck! You'll do great!

  8. Too early to say congrats (don't want to jinx you) but I wish you the best of luck. Nail that audition then nail that blonde (just kidding on the latter)

  9. Good Luck at the audition. Just remember, you've got the tools. All you need to do is keep out of your own way and they'll shine through.

    Solid pics - I've never played roulette before, but now I have the urge.

    And I'll jump on the more brunettes and redheads bandwagon with Carmel.

  10. That Lego setup is sad, but hilarious... :)

    1. Yeah - it really is kinda pathetic, but I would still like to buy it if it were not overpriced and looked better.

      If I got it I could see myself taking a few weeks to actually draw the real craps table in, in painstaking detail, only to have my dog eat it and I lose all the work I put into it.

  11. gl grouchiiii
