Little White Vegas Lies

This heat oven I call home is known for its slogan "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas." It's a 24-7 town where you can make people believe anything about you that you want them to believe. The funny thing is not only visitors change their identities when they come to Vegas but us locals do it too. Every time I go out I am a new person with a new career and identity. I'm getting pretty good at this white lie game and now I can even play it off with a straight face.

It all started with my alter ego "Jubilee" who was a foreigner (complete with accent). She was 14 years old and in the club with her fake ID. This worked great for creepy old men because they second they heard "14" they ran.

Jubilee later turned into my next made up alter ego "Chardonnay." Chardonnay was a little rich girl from Napa who's daddy owned a vineyard that produced Chardonnay wine, which is why he named me that.

Recently I have been using my real name but making up different careers when people ask me what I do for a living. My favorite one lately is telling people that I run the water show at the Bellagio and I sit in a little room that plays music while I push buttons and flip switches to sync the different fountains with the music.

Next time you come to Vegas, try not to believe anything that anyone tells you ;-)


  1. I have heard the saying but thought it was just that a "saying" - haha I wanna come and make up an alter ego!

  2. Haha we do have fun with this. I think the last time we went out my name was Kelly or something. Guys are just a little too weird here to let them know everything about you! And you should totally try and see if there is such thing as the Bellagio fountain job.

  3. Hahaha I've heard this many a time but I'm glad to hear it again!

    Love, Mere
