I had a dream the other night.....

That my wife booked a flight to Vegas with a hotel room at the Imperial Palace..........................................................................................................

































I woke up today and found out that it wasn't a dream.....it is a reality!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm coming to Vegas for gamblage, drinkage, and meetage of bloggerage. I haven't been there since my bachelor party in May or '03.....that was just before the Poker World exploded. If anybody reads this and is going to the at the now defunct? WPBT winter classic? I went to the page and it looks to be hacked and hijacked into a mishmash of pornucopia. Please contact me........I went to Falstaff's blog and made a few tries at getting my name in the spreadsheet? Anybody know anything that could help me out would be appreciated. I'll be there myself and have never met anybody I've been playing against for 3 years! I have done some chat box stuff with some good people. Other than that I'm just another fat guy looking for some good drinks, and good people.

I went to the Bruins game on Friday with some old friends.....what a good time. I live in Wakefield, Mass. now and there is a commuter rail that goes right to the Boston Garden. My friend was up from Cape Cod for the Thanksgiving weekend and was staying at his Bros. house in Wakefield. We all met at the train station and 20 minutes later we are drinking beers at the bars surrounding the Garden. The B's won 2-1 and a good time was had by all. I'm really starting to like the town I'm in a lot more....nice suburb-y town with easy access to the city and other things associated with a big town. I got home later on in the night and started up the PC...when will I learn? I fired up a bunch of tourneys and busted out of all of them with more suckouts than anyone should suffer in a night. I'll spare everybody the details....All two of you.

So I decide to 'sweat' the alcohol out the next day....in 32 degree weather. I decided to rake the lawn one last time before the winter. The yard isn't a big yard but enough to collect a shitload of leaves from the trees that are on the median strip of the sidewalk. I mean serious amounts of yellow maple leaves. So I bust my ass and rake these yellow leaves into piles in order to bag and dispose of. After realizing I didn't have enough bags I mosey on down to the local Home Depot.
"No sir...we're all out"
me: "Your kiddin' me right?
"No...we'll have more delivered on Tuesday"
me: "Tuesday? why wouldn't they order the shipment to come on the weekends when everybody is raking their yard?"
"I don't know...that's just poker....err..that's just the way it is"
me: "Did you just say 'that's just poker' or did I just think that?"
"ahem.....you just thought that..."
bad beat indeed....................then I go home to bag up as many of the leaves as I can...........

I'm on my last bag and I have a view of the front of my house from the side. I'm actually sweating in the 35 degree weather when I see a lady walking a yellow lab in appear from the front of the house. Just ahead of her is a big pile of leaves that I can't quite bag up because I might run out of bags. She can't see me bagging the leaves on the sidewalk beside the house...but I can see her and her dog. So I see her stop suddenly and then I see that her yellow lab is peeing on my neatly piled stack of yellow leaves! She lets him finish and then just keeps walking without so much as a thought. I mean...wouldn't you think that MAYBE somebody piled these leaves up to dispose of them....and MAYBE that person is currently in the yard...RIGHT NOW? She let the dog pee in the leave pile as if it was made for her little damn pooch. The pile of leaves was not on a sidewalk in the front as there is no sidewalk in the front of the house. It was also on the lawn beside the walkway to the front door.

me : "Hey.......did you just let your dog pee in the pile of leaves that I just raked? I asked in disbelief
bitch lady : Looks over at me like the cat that ate the canary...then sort of looks away and sticks her nose up in the air matter-of-factly and says "It was only a little pee!"
me "Oh yeah...that makes it OK....You have yourself a nice day" I said extremely sarcastically.
I'm thinking........Who the fuck does that? BITCH!!!!!!!!
