One of my all time favorite bloggers is Hurricane Mikey. He rocks. He has a huge following, and I ought to know, because I've been following him for years. Anyway, he's the one who got me started in the blogging department. Yes Wolfie, blame Mikey.
I read his blog religiously and one day I offered him an "incentive" to write an epic post. And I mean epic. It was a story of him travelling with a giant canoe to Alaska, lol. There's more to it than that, but that's not what this post's about.
After that we got to chatting a bit and he graciously offered to let me be a guest blogger on his site and tell a poker story of mine. Well, if you know me even a little, you know I was thrilled.....after a couple of months another blogger, Linda Lou asked her readers to think about what they really wanted to do and do it.
Damn, I really liked writing about poker, and although I thought not a soul would read my stuff, I decided to make a real effort. I reprinted that first story that was posted on Mikey's blog and then just kept writing.
Mikey was the FIRST guy to add me to his blog roll. A girl always remembers her first.
As a matter of fact, half of all of my current readers come from him. I shiat you not. They don't seem to comment alot, but they're there reading. Can't complain about that.
Speaking of complaining......Mikey finally got around to posting a story ABOUT POKER again. I was thrilled and demanded more. Guess what he did? Wrote up a juicy poker story just for me, which is entitled....get this....Ok, Since Josie Wants Me To Talk About Poker It's classic Mikey storytelling.
If you like stories about live poker on the felt, straight from the heart of Vegas, well clicky on the link and enjoy. I'm sure half of you (the good half) have already read it. I know I did. And yeah, I know he writes better than I do. So fucking what. I'm cuter! Well...he's pretty damn cute too, with a voice that could make a person swoon.
I'm off track here but guess what???? Mikey's spoken with CR!!! The Crazy Receptionist! I shiat you not. He got a little sample of her and was like WTF, who's answering your goddamn phone at work! LOL (btw I have an epic story about CR in my pocket....with a little incentive you can hear this shocker and feel my pain)
In other news, I played The Mookie tonight. 96 players and I was out 17th. 9 in the money, in case you didn't know. Guess what I lost to? Ace Rag!
Played for the first couple hours with Hoyazo at my table. Damn that guy can play pokah! Of course I tell him about my incentive bet with Waffles. And he tells me that I better watch out, Waffles might not pay up. My answer was "Yeah, I hear he's a chip dumper too." Then I tell him "I'm just kidding, and Waffles is too sweet to welch out on a bet."
Funny enough, Hoyazo doesn't agree. Hoy was assuming our bet involves money. It doesn't. It's much more interesting than that. But maybe Waffles isn't that interested, cuz he hasn't won it yet. :P
I last longer than Waffles unfortunately. Waffles, dontcha wanna win a prize from Very Josie?
I also lasted longer than Floppy, DB Cooper, Wolfie, Columbo, Miami Don, Lightning, Riggs, Memphis Mojo, and a shitload of other people. Of course I didn't cash, so I don't know how much it really matters. What does matter is that I played very well. You guys know how much I hate online poker, but damn it sure is fun.
I have other BIG news too. Remember when I was kidding around about Very Josie going International? Well I don't think I'm kidding about that anymore. It seems a gambling site in the UK is very interested in my little blog. So much so they had an agent get in touch with me! When I hear more, you'll be the first to know. All this happened the day after my blog was featured on Full Tilt, Poker From The Rail, so thank you Al & Italian Dave McCarthy! I don't think that's a coincidence.
Waffles you don't have any friends in the UK, do you?
