Beautiful Day

So it's a stunningly beautiful day today, 82° and delightful.

After recuperating from last night's wine tasting I spent some quality time with Zooks97 watching HGTV in preparation for Oma Moni's pending arrival. She's addicted to this channel and it's easy to see why. Some of these shows are awesome.

After several hours I managed to pry my ass off the couch long enough to wash my car with the kids like I promised them yesterday.

One of those dealer options we decided to spring for was a teflon paint protection package. Worth.every.penny. I had some asphalt splatter on the fenders. Slid right off. Seriously. I'm totally impressed with how well this works. Bugs were no match for me and my microfiber cleaning cloth either.

I logged a few more quality hours with HGTV then fired up FTP after Snarf teased me with some total donkage going on at a .50/1.00 Razz table. I join only to find that my intertubes connection was giving me fits. I actually timed out and folded 532! Gaaaaaaaaah! I did manage to make a few $ before I left to beat the crap outta reset my router.

Freeroll Sluts

How to spend a Saturday afternoon?

Why spend hours playing a freeroll just to make $1.20!

Who do we think we are, Chris Ferguson?

GG Khan, not Zerb, and me!

Too busy...

I had my friend, not Zerb, photoshop this comic strip for me. I find them to be incredibly pertinent to my everyday life in a very sad and pathetic way.

My sincerest apologies to Stahler the
creator of Moderately Confused.


I wasn't looking forward to playing this event only because there are so many bad Razz players out there.

Razz isn't a game of catching good as much as it is about your opponents catching worse than you. That doesn't stop them from running you down though. Some players refuse to fold and proceed to get lucky.

Even if you start perfect - A23 - you can only brick from there.

I was a perpetual short stack during the whole event. I had very few playable hands.

I was all in 6 times during this event. I probably could have squeaked into the money instead of going out 19 (16 paid) if I'd been just a little more patient. It's sad when A97 looks good enough to go out with but then to continue on when I brick with a Q on 4th is, to be honest, laughable. I'd been playing desperation poker for 2.5 hours and I just gave up. Sad but true.

That's definitely a leak I need to work on.
