Idiot Friends

I was doing my usual Sunday night routine: playing the PokerSlut Tour while Skyping with the Poker Soup crowd.  One of my friends gave me grief about not posting much original content lately (so, yeah, I'm lazy whataboutit?).  He was one of those friends.  You know...

The Art of Negotiation

Definitely better than the WPT but probably not better than the WSOP. 

I feel like I'm constantly negotiating with Zooks97 over what he can and cannot wear.  I wish he had never figured out that I was the fashion police I threatened him with when he was a small child.

Tech Support

I find myself doing this same thing all the time.  It's a good thing I like doing it, well, most days I like it.

Poker Face

Damn,  I hate it when I let my tells show.

I'm on the PHONE!

A long, long time ago in a land far, far away... I was constantly on the phone at my first real job out of college. Constantly. Being the newb that I was people figured out real fast that I would do just about anything regardless of whether or not it was actually MY JOB. 

My coworkers were fond of talking to me over the partition walls.  It became a running joke when I started saying, "I'M on the PHONE!"  A couple really randy ones would call me and leave me voice mail starting with, "I know you're on the phone but ...."

I suppose I should be thankful that I never had to work with anyone like Amir.

Uh? What the Duck?!

I subscribe via RSS feed to the daily What the Duck comic. 

I was adding stuff to my iGoogle home page the other day when I spotted this GoComics widget that would add my selected comics to my home page.  What the Duck was one of the featured comics.

Today I read What the Duck first on my iGoogle page.  Then it popped up in my reader.  Even though I had yet to have any coffee a remote corner of my mind picked up on a subtle difference between the two versions.

Let's see if you are astute enough to spot it as well.

They are both amusing but one is clearly far superior.  I guess I'll have to keep both subscriptions now so I can see if any more incongruities like this appear.

Cash Game

I babble on about the live cash game over at Corporation Poker.

Babble, babble, babble.  Oh, and there's a nice graphic thrown in for your viewing pleasure.

Go check it out.

I was cheated.  Cheated I tell you.

I was on my way home from dumping off one of my grade school volunteer jobs onto another unsuspecting volunteer when I recalled that today's Flavor of the Day was Black Forest.  Yummy, delicious Black Forest.  If your mouth isn't watering at the mere thought of scoring some Black Forest custard then you are a lewzor.  Just sayin.

I pull in and hop out of my car in anticipation of handing over my free cup coupon to the pimply faced teenager at the counter when, much to my surprise, I see that today's flavor IS NOT BLACK FOREST!  Uh, WTF!?!?!?

Lemon Pie.  Ugh.

There is no way that anybody with three fucntioning brain cells would even remotely consider Lemon Pie as an adequate substitute for Black Forest.  Never in a million, cajillion, brazillian years.  Ever.

Since I recently moved my FOTD widget to another page of my iGoogle I thought that, just maybe, I had messed something up or somehow my recollection had failed. 

I fired up the browser on my new handy-dandy BlackBerry Tour only to confirm that, yes, indeed the webpage says that today's flavor is/was/should be Black Forest.

I was seriously pwned.

Bitching has commenced and may continue for an extended period of time.  Not a good time to piss me off even more.  Just sayin.

My Political Views

My Political Views
I am a left moderate social libertarian
Left: 4.36, Libertarian: 2.54

Political Spectrum Quiz

I thought the questions were rather well done for this type of quiz.  In many cases there were 2 -3 supporting/related questions.  I'd say they got me pretty well nailed;  if anything I may be even further to the left/Libertarian than this indicated by not by much.
