Disconnect

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

Tonight is New Year’s Eve or, as AlCantHang would say, the ultimate Amateur Night. This is the night where everyone feels justified in getting blackout drunk, as if a random Tuesday night in April isn’t also an opportune time for a bender. Me, I’m going to a party where I will drink some red wine,…

The Perfect Storm

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

I lost my fantasy football title game last night by two points and I still have the dry heaves. So many things went wrong to cost me the title, and if any of them go my way, I win. They didn’t, so I lost. Marques Colston finished with 99 yards receiving. If he gets one…

Wrap It Up

Wednesday, December 17th, 2008

I’m not gonna write a lot about this past weekend. Either you were there and know what went on, or you weren’t there and…you followed the action on Twitter and know what went on. Heck, I was checking Twitter every ten minutes to see who was having more fun that me. The highlights: Meeting up…

I Got Friends in Low Places

Wednesday, December 17th, 2008

I think it’s fair to say that the Imperial Palace isn’t the most glamorous hotel on the Las Vegas Strip. I remember three years ago the escalators to the sports book were under repair and the joint looked like an aircraft carrier in drydock. Check out the clientele who gather there at 4AM and you’ll…

Back To Reality

Tuesday, December 16th, 2008

Wrote up a little post when I got home last night…and didn’t click that little ‘ol publish button. I’m assuming you don’t want to hear about how tired I was last night and chances are you don’t wanna here about how tired I am today. Actually I feel a’ight. I was a good boy in…

Calibrating

Wednesday, December 10th, 2008

The past few nights I’ve forced myself to stay up till 4AM, in what will probably be a vain attempt to tune my circadian rhythms to Vegas time. I really get clobbered by jet lag and the Sin City cocktail of booze, adrenaline and pumped-in oxygen often isn’t enough to overcome it. The first time…

Photo Dump

Wednesday, December 10th, 2008

Just a few pics for your amusement. Post tomorrow, promise. This is what my Monday nights usually look like. Volleyball for 2 hours, and then…beer. Hartwood Acres is one of the parks near my flat and around the holidays you can drive through and see the huge collection of light-festooned trees and models and whatnot….

Lapped By the Field

Monday, December 8th, 2008

After drinking a pot of coffee and finishing a spot of work I did something unusual this morning–I played  online poker. That’s something I don’t do much of these days, even though I still enjoy it. I checked my PokerTracker stats and since I got home from the WSOP I’ve played less than 4,000 ring-game…

Quicky Bleg

Thursday, December 4th, 2008

A question for the photographers out there–I have a copy of Photoshop Elements 5 and it’s been acting up for awhile. I can edit photos, but I can’t use the organizer. I’ve removed and reinstalled it but my computer doesn’t like it for some reason. I want to start doing more post-production work on my…
