Not a bad start to the weekend. Tonight was poker night. For the first time I had 2 tables full of folks. And I timed it reasonably well too. Everything finished at around 12:15. Nice. I had a couple of new faces too. but unfortunately, it was the old timers, the old guard who were sitting at the final table. I managed to eek out 3rd place and win a couple of bucks. Sadness, cause at one point I had a hug chip lead. Grrr!! All the folks who go busted, ended up playing Guitar Hero 2. It was quite a hit. Oh I should also say congrats to Alice for finally being in the money after never winning for the last… all of them… tournaments. So go Alice! Oh yeah, and we also had Annie clean our bathroom for us after she got busted! That’s kinda funny. I guess she was really bored?!? umm.. but thanks!
I guess Jocelyn weighed heavily on my mind this week. It’s been both the good and bad kind of mindshare. Tho now, I can say that I’m feeling optimistic about moving on – making forward progress – which is always a good thing in my mind. I know I’m pretty slow in this department, but it’s always been my MO, so I’m not surprised it’s taken this long. I’m hopeful tho.
Oh deck, tomorrow is a broomball adventure, at midnight again! Woo hoo! That’ll be fun. Sunday is Wasi’s birthday dinner, and possibly that dumpling dinner that I was going to go to, but really, I’ll probably skip it. I might be a nice time to just chill out.
Oh also, I just wanted to say, that’s it really really nice to have a good group of friends around. I mix in a lot of different groups, and know a lot of people to varying degrees, but it always really really nice to get together, over poker, dinner, biking, whatever. Thanks guys. It’s been a much better week than the last one. 🙂
