OMG I so need a palooza. 


I missed out on the Winter Blogger gathering in Vegas. (Are Z listers even invited?) I so plan on crashing that event next year if at all possible.

T and I were tossing around the idea of a palooza; we have finally settled on a venue: Indianapolis, IN.  The good news is that we have several friends (effers and others) that live in and around Indy.  The bad news is that the Dolts Colts will be playing a playoff game some time that weekend.  We've been told that there should still be hotel rooms and the rates shouldn't be jacked up huge because most of the seats in the stadium will be filled by season ticket holders but I would get a room lined up now if you think you might want to attend.

There will be the usual Poker Suite for low stakes, degenerate donkitude.  Hoosier Park horse track is nearby with Pokertek tables. We plan on hitting up that place and seeing if they'll humor us with a PLO or even a PLO8 table.  We love the flexibility of the Pokertek tables when it comes to game selection.

Did I mention degenerate donkitude?  Yeah, there will be plenty of that going around.  You can check out The Forum for more details.

Wow, I feel better already.

I used to jokingly use 'Overeducated and Underemployed' as a tag line in my forum profile.  I have an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering but have been a stay at home mom for many years now.

I found my first job out of college hugely frustrating because I did no engineering to speak of.  Some of the other new hires in my group did actually do engineering but for the most part the rest of us just did paperwork and went to meetings.  I suppose it shouldn't come as any surprise that I was working for a division of General Motors at the time.

I saw this in my reader this morning and had to chuckle.  I'm convinced that just about every college graduate - particularly those in the scientific fields - feels this way at some point in their career usually within the first few months.

I moved on from General Motors to Rockwell just before they were bought by Boeing.  I worked out at the NASA test facility in White Sands, NM.  One might think this was a step up on the career ladder.  One might.  Until one figured out that the NASA engineers pretty much controlled everything.  You may THINK you are in control of the project until you walk in one morning only to be told, "I spec'ed and order your clean room."  Stuff like that happened constantly.

There are days when I could certainly use more mental challenges in my life but for the most part I keep myself busy.   I don't look back on my working days fondly but I'm definitely glad I had the experience if for no other reason that to be able to appreciate the Dilbert comic strips.

LuckBox Revenge

Last month I was a luckbox.  I admit it.  I ran good.  I won a few huge pots I had no business winning.

Poker is a bitch of a mistress.  She's getting her due.  Payback is her calling card.




I'm getting coolered, sucked out on, AND I can't win a flip to save my life.

What to do? What to do?

I guess I'll go squander some of my offline bankroll playing at the boat tomorrow while I wish I was in Vegas for the Winter Bloggerment.  At least I would be having a good time while I donk off my money.

Mac Chat

Time for another lazy blogger post.

Thing is: I installed Windows 7 not long ago and now I have to dig through multiple files for ammunition for this post.  We all know how lazy I am.  This doesn't bode well for this post.

Mac: wife made me a sandwich with fresh homemade bread (well, homemade in a bread machine)
Mac: but it's cut kinda wonkie so one side of it is like 2" thick
Mac: I don't care for bread quite that much, but I don't think i can tell her that the bread was too thick either
Mac: esp after yesterday
Me : hahah
Me : yeah I wouldn't go there
Mac: my sandwich is so absurd
Mac: sent you a pic

Me : lol
Me : ok
Me : it's charming, and hand made by your wife so STFU LOL
Mac: oh, I know
Mac: it was really nice and it's all fresh and everything
Mac: which is why I can't joke about it with her
Me : right
Me : and I'm starving
Me : if only I didn't smell bad I could do a Taco Bell run
Mac: cause then I seem like an unappreciative dick instead of just trying to have fun

Me : don't even think about it
Mac: oh, come on
Me : she'll hurt you
Mac: at least I get credit for being thoughtful then no?
Me : you get credit for saying she can't slice bread for shit
Mac: that's just BS
Mac: that's like saying I can't give her perfume cause it's telling her i think she smells
Me : lol
Mac: that with the cookbook they list on that page too
Me : lol
Mac: the bread making cookbook
Mac: fuck off, this is a good idea
Me : step away from amazon
Mac: stop harshing my gift giving buzz
Me : well then buy me something
Me : I could use some ram

Me : I like the way you think
Mac: you said ram
Me : yes I did

Mac: shit is just irritating me today
Me : me too
Me : cranky and crabby
Me : and all I want to do it crawl back in bed
Me : my nose has been itching like crazy
Me : and it won't fucking stop raining
Me :

Me : hahahahahah
Mac: fired?
Me : you could stay home all day and play poker
Me : sfw
Mac: :)
Mac: I told you about goozex, right?
Me : uh, no
Me : you been holding out on me?

Me : and you weren't worried about getting fired for looking at that?
Me : yet you worry every time I send you a link?
Me : bizarre
Mac: your link actually had "sex" in the url
Me : pussy

Me : hahahhahahahah
Me : ok that's cute
Me : but what time zone is he in?
Me : not ours
Mac: 0
Me : ah london
Mac: duh
Me : yeah
Mac: GMT
Mac: didn't know you are blonde
Me : yeah, I color
Me : makes me look smarter

Me : ooh I have 7 points so far this month
Mac: haha
Mac: 1431.35 POINTS
Me : blow me
Me : ;P

Mac: oh, ugh
Mac: #6 on there is horrible
Mac: well, didn't listen to part 2
Mac: listened to half of part 1
Mac: it was awful
Mac: it basically shoulda been titled "Why I don't get laid"
Me : lol
Mac: oh sweet
Me : pretty sure I didn't get that one

Mac: you care what I think or you just want me to say NH?
Me : hahahah
Me : not right now
Me : we'll discuss later
Me : look at this one
Me :
Mac: I'm ok with either, just didn't know what you were looking for
Mac: so I'll just say NH
Me : nah, we can discuss it later
Me : if you want
Me : but I'm on 7 tables now
Mac: it's your hand
Me : I don't feel the need to comment on the hands you post that I read
Me : sometimes it's just fun to see what happens to other people
Mac: well, that's different cause I play awesome :D
Me : uh huh
Me : welcome to my retarded world

Mac: BTW
Mac: you shouldn't start your tweets with @somebody since it treats them as a reply then
Mac: kinda annoying
Me : yeah sorry
Mac: not annoying for me
Mac: but only people who follow both of us will see it
Me : that works for me
Me : lol
Me : or were you trolling for followers?
Me : pimp your own bad self
Mac: If I was doing that, I would make posts that randomly have the word "sex" in them and just not report all the new found adult website spammers
Me : uh huh
Me : too easy
Me : you should have to do it the hard way
Me : and sleep with each and every one personally
Me : that's what we need to do
Me : start a site called Twatter
Me : you can't add somebody unless you've slept with thenm
Mac: I'ld have a pretty short follow list
Mac: but might be a good excuse
Mac: "no, honey, I was only nailing them so I could follow their twats"
Me : bingo
Mac: you think that would work?
Me : you can always try
Mac: ok, seesmic is really kinda nice
Mac: esp the beta since it supports lists
Me : I think he is
Me : ooops
Me : is that a twatter client?
Mac: yeah

Me : things going any better with the wife?
Mac: going better?
Me : smoothed over with the twitter thing?
Mac: she was just being a PITA
Me : ahhh
Me : wives are good for that
Mac: that's why I like being a douche
Mac: people are more likely to be a PITA when they are in a good mood
Mac: if I'm a douche, I can prevent them from being in a good mood
Mac: which prevents them from being a PITA
Me : well that some rationale you got there
Mac: I'm on a whole new level than most people
Me : clearly

Me : yeah I think you told me about that once before
Mac: cause that's what I do
Mac: spread little bits of awesome all over the place
Me : you keep telling yourself that
Mac: we both know it's true
Mac: you surely didn't befriend me for my good looks and charm
Me : shh I'm busy shoping
Me : or watching pron
Me : you decide which
Mac: I will take pron for $200, Alex
Me : lol

Mac: did you watch that durrr video yet?
Mac: I have to say, he really looks like a tool when he wears a baseball cap
Me : hahahah
Me : that was not a good look for him
Me : but he's got charisma oosing out of him compared to Antonius
Me : I swear IDK how Antonius gets women cause he can't even mumble a coherent sentence
Mac: I'm sure he sounds much better in dutch or whatever the fuck it is they speak from where he's from
Me : you gotta hope so
Me : cause he sounds retarded in english
Me : I'd totally hit Durr over him any day of the week
Mac: what if he was small in the pants?
Me : well he better be talented then
Mac: like he can juggle?
Me : more like, are you good with your tongue?

Me : how did the weekend treat you?
Mac: well, I didn't get arrested or anything
Me : well that's a win
Mac: but I didn't win the PST tourney though either
Me : bummer
Me : cash?
Mac: um

Me : I ran tptk into kk twice and on my last hand into AA
Me : fml
Mac: on ring games?
Me : no just the ps tour
Me : I don't go broke with tptk in ring games
Mac: I thought you were saying to didn't play any yesterday
Me : yeah I was being sarcastic
Me : guess that didn't make it through
Mac: notsomuch
Mac: plus it's a bit ambitious to expect it to work on a monday morning
Me : yeah, I think that's the crux of the problem right there

Mac: why online poker videos are awesome?
Me : ok, why?
Mac: I just heard "PantySniffer is pretty solid"
