Only 20 days left, gang!

Folies Bergere tickets:

Can we talk ...

You have until next Sunday, that's four days, to get your order in
for the Folies Bergere tickets.

Yes, I know, it's a hoop to jump thru, but this is well worth it.

Sunday evening of DLV will be something very special. Folies is the
longest running show in Las Vegas. It's an elegant and spectacular
production.

Following the show, we will have a private limousine tour of the Strip
and other high-profile areas.

Taking a look at registrations, the majority of you have indicated you
will be in town Sunday evening.

If you're thinking you're not ready for this type of public exposure
yet, you're most welcome to join us in boymode. This will be very
enjoyable from either side of the fence. :)

Don't get left out, gang. This is the last call for this.

I'm sure everybody will join me in giving thanks and a big hug to Tina
for arranging this and the Folies show.

{in unison} Thanks, Tina

Making contact in Las Vegas:

Just to be sure we don't have anything slipping off the plate here, in a
thread "on another network" there was some concern about making contact
with the group when arriving in Las Vegas.

Although explicit contact instructions will be sent out in the big
mailing toward the end of the month, here's a Readers Digest summary
of what the story is.

Absolute best way to make contact with the group is to simply show up at
one of the scheduled functions. Yes, one of us will then mark a little
check by your name on a list. We will send out a very detailed schedule
with specific instruction on how to get to each activity, and how to
find the group when you arrive. We'll have a map on the web, with major
event locations noted.

If you need to get in contact with the group before your first activity,
or if you run into trouble finding the location and the group, there
will be not one, but three (3 - count 'em) cell phone numbers you can
use to speak to a live body. No voice mail, no ACD {grin}, just a live
human (Big Sister type) on each one. :) I'll also publish my 1-800
pager number.

Makeup and fashion critiques:

>Reading all of the comments I see that many girls are concerned about
>their makeup, and how well they do their own faces. Maybe it would be
>possible to have some "pre-DLV big sisters" who would volunteer to give
>advice now to some of these girls.

Yes, that might be a good idea. Would anybody out there want to take
advantage of an honest critique?

>A volunteer would have to agree to let you post her e-mail address, and
>then those that want advice could send a photo to the big sister for
>advice.

Here are some addresses. Send .jpg or .gif file or web url to:

Annie: annie@annie.net
Tina: tinatdre@swbell.net

State you want an honest critique of makeup and/or outfit.

Please do not send binary attachments to the mailing list (dlv@geekbabe.com)
as the list processor will badly mangle them.

>Caveat emptor-- if you ask for advice do not have thin skin.

Very true, ladies, if you do this, please do so with the intent of not
getting infinite strokes and fuzzies for how nice you look, but with the
intent of smoothing over any rough spots.

>You make think you look stunning with electric blue eye shadow caked
>on, but your big sister may have another idea for you.

Well, ya gotta consider time place and circumstance. If you're going to
a 70's retro party, or to RHPS, it might be appropriate. :)

Late nite gambling:

>Do they have lots of tables, or are they mostly machine oriented places

Both Sahara and Imperial Palace are heavily slot oriented, but they do
have good size pit areas. They are not nearly as spacious as Caesars or
even Stardust. I noticed Sahara was gettting kinda crowded in the pit
area one night (Friday?) during DLV2K.

I agree with that.

>Personally, I actually don't like the idea.

Ok, one check in the "no way" column. :)

I'll be getting in on Tuesday as well. I'm getting quite a do-it list
for Tuesday evening, but I'll think about dropping by if I'm still
awake.

Well, I guess I should probably refer to the game as "21" or "Blackjack"
for the people with dirty minds. :)

I guess I could also tweak Phil's lyrics to "... hate to throw the game"
or something less suggestive. :)

>Personally, I

Yes, you can actually come out ahead for very skilled VP (that's Video
Poker) play. :)
