Also, I have recently seen my first casino from the inside. Not to my linking, I'm afraid, but much as I suspected. For all the lights, smoke, drink and noise, it's rather a dreary place. In truth, I was far more amused by the habits and reactions of the gamblers and their companions than I was by the gambling itself.
Still, my eminence was most worthy, and I netted a winning of $50 US. Still have no idea why I won anything, but I'll take it in stride, and shall henceforth avoid such dens of impulse and incertitude.
