Clearly I suck at poker. Because yes, I saw the two diamonds. But I never really dreamed someone had called a 3.5BB raise pre-flop with suited connectors. Damn you SuperSystem…

Oh well. Did I call it or what? I said I was gonna be self-destructive. But I needed a break from all this internet sleuthing I’ve been doing. Which has gotten me nowhere. Although I have found some interesting things. Like this. And you know, I was there, so I decided to Google myself, and apparently, if you’re interested, you can get an escort by the name of April Anderson (and I don’t mean the car…). Should I give the link? The page had pictures…nah…do the work yourself! 😉 And then, as far as poker blogs go, this one shows up on page 12. You’ll have to excuse my rambling, I’m really not right. People call me, and when I answer, I’m pissy with them, because they’re not the person I wanted them to be. I’m trying to remain “Zen”…guess it’s a good thing I have a book on that. But did you know January is National Mentor Month? 😥

Anywho, since the cards at UB were apparently no good to me, I went to PokerStars to be with the gang (and yea, buddy…you think I’m worried – huh…there’s only so much information I can withhold for so long…and then they really will call the state police) and finished up about 20K in play chips. Woo hoo! And that was at the 10/20 tables.

I picked up my stepson from [private Catholic] school today, and he gets in the car chewing gum. He informs me he got said gum by winning it in a game of Blackjack. He tells me they would have played poker instead, but there wasn’t enough time. Somehow I have a feeling I’m going to be blamed for all of this…
