sheeeit... - I suck at poker again - all back to normal.
watched "A Love Song for Bobby Long" just now - if I ever didn't have a reason to fall in love with Scarlett Johansson, I ran out of them -
or New Orleans for that matter - the city is as a strong of a character as any of them on the screen - between that and WWOZ, I've been getting a dose of it - I understand that Harrah's has a casino in New Orleans - someplace to go this winter again. I won't travel as much right now, but when it gets cold in Minnesota again, it's time to move around again.
Iggy asked for more input on the poker game - well, one of the bars I frequent has a couple regulars and a bartender that play - I was pegged as a player as soon as I sat around reading poker books at the bar - LOL. They all think I'm a winner, but I'm down 1100 for the yr. so far. - christ.
anyways, long story short is there is usually someone there drinking, and throwing me in that spot, I go for it, but I mean, profoundly drunk - I get that drunk sometimes, but never at a poker game, and I try not to do it in public - (anymore) - and he fell over, broke some shit (in his own apt) -
two other guys, they didn't want them there cause they thought he might be cheating - I didn't see anything, but you gotta try hard to cheat in a 20 buck SNG - but it just has bad juju - bad vibes - and so of course, I came home slightly plastered on rum/whiskey and remind myself to focus on the bad times -
but it's no big deal - just 50 bucks dropped playing poker, a bad night's sleep, and a wasted day - I didn't have much else to do with it anyways...
