Emails from Scott – the beginning

Posted by in Emails from Scott

Starting a new feature on the blog; one that I hope you find as amusing as I do. I get emails from Scott Mc almost every day, because I rarely turn on the Yahoo chat and our friendship requires that we communicate over the most mundane. I’ve asked him time and time again to start blogging again; turning his rants and social commentary into posts. He consistently refuses, stating that I am the muse & target audience anyway. So, this is the next best thing. If you’ve met ScottMc before,…read more

Seven Year Itch

Posted by in Pokerish, WPBT

Dude, I have been blogging for nearly 7 years. SEVEN. How crazy is that? These are the kind of things you realize when you’re updating your blog and getting WordPress back to a happy place. Spruced the place up a bit, with much love to David Stagg who is a master with a .psd. I’m particularly fond of the “Random Posts” feature down in the bottom right there. So far I’ve been treated to reminders of Chris actually winning a Stud H/L game and me experiencing road rage. Indeed one…read more

Posted by in Poker, Vegas, WPBT

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m ready for a trip to Vegas. As a reminder, if you have not yet RSVP’d YES for the tourney on Facebook, please do that this week. By the same token, if you had said yes but now aren’t going to make it – well, BOO and then please do update your RSVP. If you just can’t bring yourself to use Facebook, well, maybe someone will make a profile for you. If not, just go ahead and comment here. The loose schedule for…read more

Lost Vegas is Waiting

Posted by in Uncategorized

I often get weird looks from people when I mention that I’m planning my annual trip to Vegas with “100 of my closest friends” or that I’m, oh, headed there mere days after getting back from Hawaii. Little crazy? Maybe. But the allure of Las Vegas and the things it represents to me is not an easy phenomenon to explain. Likely you’ve run in to this problem yourself, trying to relay to your spouse or boss just WHY it’s so important that you be there. I no longer am going…read more
