I'm So Excited!

Okay this isn't a picture of me, it's a picture of Rachel Ray.  Don't want you guys to think I'm trying to pull the wool over your eyes.  Yes, I know I'm not as hot as she is, but I have been told that I look like her.

Guess what?  I'm even more excited than she looks!

Wanna know why?

The awesome guys from Poker From The Rail invited me to the BBT5 Invitationals!  It is invitation only, the entries are FREE and top TWO places get a TOC seat, plus cashola.

I was going to copy and paste the entire email here, but I dunno if that would upset them (sometimes I upset people...go figure).  Instead I'll just show you a tiny excerpt from this very nice man's email:

I checked out your blog. I agree, it is pretty damn cool. We'd love to have you in the "Invitational." What's your Full Tilt name? I'll add it to the list.

Woo Hoo!

Isn't he a sweetheart?  He was looking at my blog today, and unfortunately I just realized that I referred to Full Tilt as FFT (Fucking Full Tilt) on today's post.  Probably not the best way to make friends but those guys at Poker From the Rail don't scare easily.

It's this Sunday night at 7:00pm ET and the next few Sunday nights after that too.  If you've got nothing to do Sunday night, feel free to watch Mama in action.

I guess Ms. Harriet Beecher Stowe was right, after all. 

BTW I'm playing The Mookie tonight, and guess what?  I made some phone calls and the home game is on too.  Who says I can't multi-task?  Besides The Mookie starts at 10pm and the home game ends at 10:30pm, not really THAT much overlap.

Play smart.

Hey! Way to go Josie! Try to remember we little folk when you make it big!

fmarra17 said...

Congrats!! That is awesome. Very Josie is moving up in the blogging world.

Josie said...

@gary - thank you! And I could never forget jew boy!

@frankie - thank you too! Are you reading very josie in a meeting? LOL

fmarra17 said...

I have my ways of getting my Very Joise fix!! looking forward to my very first Mookie tournament tonight. Why the name "Mookie"? In NY there is only one "Mookie" and it is Mookie Wilson.

dbcooper said...

Congrats Josie. Probably see you tonight at The Mookie

Josie said...

@frankie...the who started the private tourney's nickname is Mookie....which IS after Mookie Wilson. Mookie doesn't play the Mookie anymore though. :(

@Coop - Thank you my dear! You should try to get into the invitational....all you gotta do is flirt with a few guys from Full Tilt!

See you both tonight!

Josie said...

BTW - Just found out my lunch with the boss is TODAY. :( Ugh. An hour of my life that I'll never get back.....he keeps stopping by saying we'll talk at lunch.

fmarra17 said...

embrace the lunch, maybe he will give you the bonus info you were waiting to hear about. I wonder if that is how my staff feels when we go out to lunch.....I hope not...

Josie said...

Franco, the guy that's taking me for lunch is my immediate supervisor..and he doesn't make decisions on bonuses. Only the owner does. But I shall take your advice and embrace the lunch. Maybe I'll even be nice....MAYBE.

If I go to lunch with YOU do I get a bonus? LOL

Josie said...

Frankie, I doubt your staff feels that way about you, unless you use every opportunity to hug them and pump them relentlessly about their personal life.

Schaubs said...

Since it doesn't look like rain at the moment, ball game will be a go. Therefore I will not be at the Mookie as discussed. IF, for some reason it does rainout this afternoon, then I will play and the LLP will be tonight. Sound good?

However, since you are now in the Sunday Freeroll we COULD have our LLB on Sunday? This makes more sense for us both.

Let me know your thoughts.

Oh, and I think the Mookie was named after Mookie Blaylock (basketball)... but I am not 100% sure.

Josie said...

Schauby,

It's supposed to rain here tonight! We'll do our thing at some point but maybe not the invitational...I really just wanna focus on that if you don't mind. (taking my man, Lightning's advice)

How many guys played the last invitational?

dbcooper said...

Somehow I don't think an old guy flirting will get me an invite to the Invitational. Maybe an appearance in a Speedo. Naw that's scary.

Cricket said...

Congratulations Sista!!

Great news. Tear out new ones, go for the jugular. or much lower!! In other words, be that cold, calculating, shewolf that I admire and am proud of, and go get yours!!

Love and pink, puffy, girly thoughts...:D

SirFWALGMan said...

It was something like 108 Josie. Could be more now.

Schaubs said...

108

makes sense. I agree.

GLGL see you at the tables

Riggstad said...

The invitational is no longer an invitational. It was supposed to be just 40 guys, then turned into 50 now almost 140 because every cried like a whiny bitch that they weren't included.

The Mookie is named after Mookie Blaylock. The actual blogger is the winningest HS girls basketball coach in Texas St. history, or something like that.

He no longer blogs because he has like 100 kids.

and yes, you are now linked.

fmarra17 said...

Josie - No, hugging & prying into people’s life is not in our job description. Although I did have a manager in a past life that wanted to know every detail about why you wanted a day off before he would approve it, which was a real pain the you know what.

Your bonus from me will depend on if you meet your goals for the year!

How did the lunch go?

Josie said...

Riggs Baby! You linked me! You obviously know how to make a woman happy!

Side bet tonight Riggsy? $5? I'd love to have a little Riggsy money in my account. You're not afraid of a whiney bitch, are you? :)

Josie said...

@ Coop, I thought speedos were a european thing....must be a canadian thing too.

@Sista, Thank you my dear!

@Frankie, Lunch was pretty good, and didn't take as long as I thought. It did kind of feel like an interoggation but it's done, and it was yummy.

dbcooper said...

They are European but if it would have got me an ivitation I would have flopped into one. Yea yea okay don't do the visual

Wolfshead said...

I guess kissing up to Al and Riggs worked out

Josie said...

Wolfie....kissing up? Nah, but thanks. I usually get called a bitch. ;)

lightning36 said...

Gawd, you don't know how I am struggling to not make funny comments here ...

Josie said...

Go ahead Lightning, take a shot....just make it funny.

Schaubs said...

The last thing that anyone would want to see is Coop in a banana hammock.

No offense of course.

jamyhawk said...

Congrats on getting in the Invitational. I'll be routing against you. At least when you are in a hand against me.

Otherwise, GL. Hope you take one down!!!

Josie said...

Jamy,

1. It sucks having you on my left.
2. Right now you have 6800 and I have 4800 but i'm gonna take your ass out of this tourney. Oh and I'll feel bad about it, but what can you do?

We'll see if my prediction comes true.
