Special Feature -- Halloween in Vegas (for Victor)
a little bit of Erica by my side
a little bit of Rita is all I need
a little bit of Tina is what I see
a little bit of Sandra in the sun
a little bit of Mary all night long
a little bit of Jessica here I am
American woman, I said get away
American woman, listen to what I say
Colored lights can hypnotize
Sparkle someone else's eyes
Now woman, get away
I don't play at home because I don't want to be labeled as a bad girl. In Las Vegas, you can be a bad girl.

LAS VEGAS -- I'll lead off with the bad news: I didn't see any thongs.
But what I saw was amazing enough that it was really hard to tell the amateur tourists from the hard working, hard-bodied women who wear nearly nothing in order to promote things for casinos, bars and restaurants here.
My favorite: The blonde wearing a red leather miniskirt with a matching red leather hooded cape -- the hood had leather horns on it. This chick was in the Bellagio and you know she doesn't travel Economy.
Ah, Halloween in Vegas, where the costume tradition lasts for an entire weekend. Give a group of girls the excuse to run wild in Vegas and tell them they should wear a "costume" and, well, it can get pretty crazy. I've never seen so many beautiful women in my life!
Nearby were this group of girls -- one was wearing red lingerie, the back of it slightly lifted up showing a bit of cheek through black fishnet. No way she'll be wanting to wear the same costume in ten years.
At Bally's across the street, another group of girls walks by -- lots of miniskirts. Some guy even turns around to take a picture of their behinds as they walk by.
Gets pretty crazy for the guys, too -- I turn from the NL table at the Excalibur to see this husky Asian guy wearing a full cow costume. He kept on taking off its head because it was so hot. LOL.
The very first girl I saw was from behind -- an Asian woman wearing a tight white top with a schoolgirl-style miniskirt and knee-length stockings at the Rio. Oh yeah, my first costume, I thought.
But it turned out she just worked for the pub there, as there were plenty of women dressed like that.
Same went for this woman wearing a white bikini, stilletto heels and angel wings. Oh, man, what a hot costume! She actually was just promoting something for the Aladdin.
Outside the Aladdin, early Tuesday morning, there was a woman dressed up in lingerie and wearing high heels walking with this guy.
Two thoughts on this -- it was kind of cold outside and unless your guy is a kung fu master, better not to wear something that will incite riots. These frat guys kept hovering near them, barking and pretty much getting excited. People from taxis shouted at her when she walked by.
Plus, it's November. Party's over.
