The Government We Deserve

Tuesday, July 11th, 2006

The House of Representatives sucks. In yet another example of how We the People need to have our hand held, that we can’t be trusted to make decisions about our lives, how we lead them, and how we spend our money, the House of Representatives passed the Goodlatte-Leach bill by a score of 317-93. Amazing…

Your Good Deed For the Day

Tuesday, July 11th, 2006

If you read this blog, and you like poker, then I strongly recommened you check out the goodies that are up for auction at eBay as part of the fundraiser for little Peyton Novoa. If you scroll down a bit you’ll see a big red banner ad that leads you to the ForPeyton website where…

Burning Down the House!

Monday, July 10th, 2006

Our closing is set for August 11th. It was originally September 25th. That means I’m probably going to be moving around August 1st. Wow, that’s coming up fast. Of course, if there isn’t a house to sell that point will be moot. This morning I woke up, read a bit, put the clean dishes away,…

Back Home

Monday, July 10th, 2006

That’s where most folks who were out in Vegas are headed right now. Me, I’m back from the lake, sore from having my junked kicked a half-dozen times at the poker tables. And sore from tubing, especially after one particularly nasty spill. Hope yinz had fun out there in Sin City. My Bloglines folder had…

I Know What I Want For Christmas!

Thursday, July 6th, 2006

The good news is that Isabelle Mercier made the final table of the $5K No-Limit event! The bad news is that ESPN didn’t plan on covering it. Are you kidding me? They force-feed Hold-Em to us with a funnel and plunger, and then they don’t plan to televise the biggest buy-in event short of the…

Check Under the Bed

Wednesday, July 5th, 2006

I’ve been living alone for a little over seven months now, and I’m quite pleased that I haven’t lost my mind yet. Oh, it’s not that I get lonely–I like being by myself, I need lots of quiet, quality “me” time, and I get out fairly often and mix with the unwashed masses outside my…

Suck Out the Poison

Monday, July 3rd, 2006

‘Cause I am snake-bit, cats and kittens. I’m on a bad streak that has shaken my faith in the cosmos. I’ve lost 2/3 of my fundage and I can’t imagine having a winning night again. I mean, seriously, I feel like I’m being fucked with by professional fuckers. And I don’t mean the people I’ve…

Running Bad

Sunday, July 2nd, 2006

I said the other day that I was cashing out what little I had in my bankroll to do more responsible things (find a job, exercise, blah blah blah). Then I learned about Full Tilt’s 50% bonus and thought, hey, can’t miss an opportunity like that! Mistake. Rather than tell you in gruesome detail what…

God Save the Queen

Saturday, July 1st, 2006

Rather than write 1,000 words about how England is a rich, noble, and most fortunate nation despite it’s loss today, I’ll skip that and instead say this–how come they can’t find five guys at a time who can hit a penalty kick? OK, everyone on the pitch was exhausted. And by the end of extra-time…
