Pokah Is Nice…I Love Play Pokah

Monday, July 31st, 2006

A quick trip to the lake is always welcome, doubly so when I don’t have anything to do anyway besides pack and throwing away junk accumulated over five years of home ownership. I defy anyone who gets divorced and sells their house not to become a Buddhist, or at least pick up some Buddhist tendencies….

And I’m Never Goin’ Back…To My Old…School…

Tuesday, July 25th, 2006

A little Steely Dan to kick things off. So far I’ve had a nice little day–got my first good night’s sleep in three weeks, trimmed the hedges, launched another strike against the yellow jacket nest and made the rubble bounce, spend some time in the hammock, and in a bit I’m going to grill some…

When the Bough Breaks; or, This Ain’t No Motherfucking Plane!

Monday, July 24th, 2006

After some early-morning running-around and an early exit from a SNG (I’ll spare you the ghastly bad beat story) I decided to lay out in the hammock for a bit. It’s a beautiful day, and how many more chances will I get to enjoy lying in my back yard? In 18 days, it won’t be…

Wish I Had A Camera

Saturday, July 22nd, 2006

I was in the kitchen deciding if I should eat lunch or mow the law (lunch won) and I looked out the window and there’s this groundhog in my back yard. He’s a fat little bastard, and he’s munching on these weedy plants that grow along the fence. One of the plants was like three…

Well, We Had a Good Run

Friday, July 21st, 2006

Are we in the End Days of online poker? Every day brings more bad news. As Iggy posted yesterday, Sen. Bill Frist hopes there will be a vote before the Senate recesses August 4th on the Internet gambling bill that passed the House. Will the Senate really go ahead and pass it? Well, have you…

Drinky Drinky

Wednesday, July 19th, 2006

Ever look at yourself in the mirror…and see a stranger staring back? I just experienced that very sensation. I was about to get in the shower, caught my reflection, took a long look…and I said “Where the hell did these sideburns come from?”. Seriously, my entire life I haven’t had sideburns. And now I look…

500

Friday, July 14th, 2006

This is my 500th post (pauses for applause, pauses some more, drinking it all in…). As this epic milestone approached I tried to think up something doubleplusgood to give to you, my dear readers. And I have some longish posts warming up in the bullpen, but I don’t have them done yet and frankly I…

I Thought Vegas Was Hot

Thursday, July 13th, 2006

This weekend I’ll be up in Watkins Glen again for the Finger Lakes Wine Festival. Two days of drinking New York State’s finest reds, a dram at a time. The past few years I’ve come home with way too much wine, so this year I’m limiting myself to a case at most. Maybe a case…

The Lake Provides No Relief

Wednesday, July 12th, 2006

Mired in the worst losing streak of my poker career, I thought a trip to the lake last weekend might shake me out of the doldrums. The trip didn’t get off to a good start–while picking up Ted I saw that my rear left tire was half-flat. I didn’t hear air hissing out, and it…
