This is what happens when you are friends with slightly OCD people...

... my tickets for Vegas are booked. I can't believe I'm driving out to Schnecksville, only to take a BUS BACK TO NEWARK to fly out from there. But it's actually CHEAPER than taking the SAME flight from EWR to LAS. Bizarre.

I'm definitely working from home on Tuesday after we get back though. Ngh.

Pot Limit Insanity

I was going to write a post about how stud variants are incredibly crazy and poor games to play as pot-limit.

Then I realized that this was stupid, because having PLAYED PL Stud, Stud 8, and any other type of crazy game you can think of (YES, PL TD was in the mix, as was PL 5 card stud), and being a winning player at these against people who knew reasonably well how to play ...

... that if a homegame includes people who think that 2 pair is GOOT in PLO when a straight draw is on board and they've been raised on the flop and bet into on the turn, plus people who insist on going only one way on Stud/8b, I should be screaming: PLEEEEEEEEEEEASE LETS PLAY STUD POT LIMIT.

So, I say, game on.

I amuse very easily

... because this made me laugh, in reference to talking about something going on at my company:

"Yeah... it's a Dilbert Parade here on Sesame Street"

Apt, sadly.

Poppin' the cherry

YAY! Kurt is coming out to Jersey the weekend of Nov. 10th to visit. Since he's not only one of my favorite people, he's an erstwhile degenerate gambling companion as well, there will be a trip to AC, oh yes, there will.

As of this moment, it will also be my very FIRST trip to the air conditioned city (and Kurt's as well!), I insist there be some crazy blogger celebration and that you all must come down as well. Dawn, Al, BG, Derek (and Pauly if he's in town), F-Train, Joaquin and Helixx (do you even have a blog anymore?), I'm LOOKING AT YOU. Be there. No excuses!

We will be going sometime on Saturday, as we are not stupid and know that we will need to get any sight-seeing in NYC done on Friday because after AC we will be pretty dead to the world and will be lucky to get Kurt to the airport on time (and safely! Sorry about almost killing you Dawn!). I'm also taking suggestions for things to do in NYC as well, since - let's face it - I am a tourist as well.

To Garth, I say: BOOOOOOoooOOOOOOoooOOOO to pittsburgh (sorry kurt). Are you even real? You miss the bash, you are going to be "in pittsburgh" for the 10th, you went to Vegas without us... my goodness!

... at least now I have a good reason to unpack my boxes.
