Go Warm Up My Seat

Last year I guaranteed I would win. I did not. This year…I GUARANTEE I’M GONNA WIN!

Poker Tournament

I have registered to play in the PokerStars World Blogger Championship of Online Poker!

This Online Poker Tournament is a No Limit Texas Holdem event exclusive to Bloggers.

Registration code: 7330476

Last time I finished in 204th place. Unacceptable. Unacceptable. Failure is not an option. Well, of course it is an option, the most likely option. But I’m not going to think about that. Instead I’ll focus on what I’ll say to ESPN during the little bio piece they shoot for the most compelling players. That’s confidence, people.

A few housekeeping notes. I’m able to walk again, thank the Buddha. While you won’t see me square dancing anytime soon, I can now put my left foot in front of the other and propel myself forward at a decent clip. I might even risk walking back to my car today and enjoy the fresh air. I’m a walker, and I’ve missed it.

By the way, I was a square-dancing fool back in the fourth grade. Seriously, I was a diva. If square dancing was an Olympic event Bettie Sue (her real name) and I would’ve been medal contenders in Seoul. We would’ve been the Torvill and Dean of the do-si-do. It wasn’t meant to be.

And I’m not changing my URL. After seeing spammers snatch up Bobby Bracelet’s and Daddy’s addresses when they went dark, forget it. Unless I can wrap my URL in C4 and blow it to Kingdom Come in a final act of desperation, forget it. If I feel the need I’ll just start another blog. And I don’t feel the need. So, again, forget it.

    Good! There is no reason to change the name. Your blog is good as is.

    BTW. I told Poker Stars that you were my referring blog for my entry this year into the tourney. (Last year I said it was Pauly – I’m sure he will get a ton again this year.) But honestly this blog is where I first heard of the 2nd annual blogger tournament.

    Promenade across the floor
    Sass shay right on out the door
    Out the door and in to the glade
    and everybody promenade
    Step right up your doing fine
    Ill pull your beard you pull mine
    Yank it again like you did before
    break it up with a tug of war
    Now into the brook and fish for the trout
    Dive right in and splash about
    Trout Trout pretty little trout
    one more splash and come right out

  4. Mean Gene Says:

    There’s a line too that goes,

    Now grab that fence post hold it tight
    Whack your partner with all your might

    I think that’s still one of the ten hardest laughing fits I’ve ever had.

    How much to make me square dance today? A million straight. With Bettie Sue? A grand.
