Bringing Down the House

Holed up inside today with the freezing cold temps outside.

I cracked open what is turning out to be a great book.

"Bringing Down the House" - It's about a team of MIT students that figured out how to win at Blackjack in Las Vegas and Atlantic city casinos.

I'm not into blackjack but am always looking for interesting non-fiction books to read.

This is a true story and I am anxious to finish the book.

They should be executed

I am so sick of being in a traffic jam and have some idiot troll up on the shoulder of the road for a bit and then try and cut in. I can't believe people let them in! I never let idiots like that in. I think they should be taken out and executed. No trial. No jury. Just pop them and charge their family for the bullet.

I think this weather is getting to me.


It's Freaking Freezing outside!

It's freaking freezing outside. Lucky for me I stopped on the way home and bought some Makers Mark. I have that plus some Milagro tequila.

Feeling a bit perplexed regarding my poker ability. I've been making a small profit playing ring but getting my ass kicked in SNGS. I've only cashed in one this year (out of 10) :-(.

My hat's off to STB as he undertakes the 24 beers in 24 hours challenge. I hope the local news covers it (as well they should).

I have my own interesting experiment that everyone should do if they are a gin drinker. Try having three martinis:

  1. Straight gin.
  2. A few drops of sweet vermouth.
  3. 3 parts gin, 1 part sweet vermouth.
You will find a gin martini to your liking if you do this experiment. I personally just add two jalepeno-stuffed olives and a little bit of the juice to make it "dirty".

Stay warm!

Annoying License Plate Sayings

For some reason I'm getting ticked off at all those "I'd Rather Be...." license plate brackets and bumper stickers. They are always lame sayings like:

How about some real ones stating what we would really rather be doing:

A neat blog for fellow cat lovers (I'm an old softie when it comes to cats):

In dire need of hard liquor

Around this time of year (after Football is over) I start to go batty - freezing temps and just plain gray, gray gray outside.

Thank God for online poker and Makers Mark (they do *not* mix!!!).

At least it is better than being here:

FullTilt Poker gets my business

Kudos to FullTilt Poker for now offering support for Apple Macs. I just joined up!!!

Macs are superior to Windows-based PCs. It's my machine of choice especially for photos and video. And for you geeks out there you can easily drop into a terminal window and get your UNIX fix.

Superbowl halftime show

Damn. How do the Stones still appear to be so cool no matter how much they age?


Superbowl Day Musings

This is it Steeler's Fans!

As I write this near Detroit I offer the following observations:

Other random thoughts:

I give the shout out to IndependentGrl!. Girl - I will look towards the East and make a toast to a fellow Steelers fan during the game today. Hope you can do the same by making a toast towards the West.

God Bless America and Go Steelers!!!!
