This, That & The Other

I played SmBoatDrinks' Booze Cruise last night and I must say the games were alot of fun.  Let's see if I can list them!

Limit Holdem
Omaha H/L
Stud
Razz
Triple Draw
Single Draw
Badugi

Not bad, huh?  I have no idea how to play half those games,but somehow I came in 3rd which was itm.  Yay me!  That's pretty good considering I've been on the go since 6:30am and it's now just a hair shy of midnight.  I guess I can sleep in the next life.

I got into work at 8:30, worked through lunch and left at 3:30 so I could go to the focus group at the Dedham Hilton.  For those of you who don't live in Massachusetts Dedham is right next to East Bum Fuck.  Frigging so far away from Boston.  My sistah picked me up at the office and we were off for our road trip! 

This particular focus group was terrible.  I usually don't mind them and the time flies.  This one was for over 2 hrs and they'd play 8 seconds of a song, and I had to rate it from 0-100 with 100 being the best.  Since they were only 8 seconds long we probably rated about 1,000 songs and I'm not exaggerating (for a change).  First few batches were fun and then it was like poking myself in the eye.  I just couldn't take it anymore.  I wanted to run screaming. 

There were about 60 of us in a Hilton Ball room all facing the guy running the group.  My sister and I were in the front row so the guy kept walking past us, and his pants were torn in the back from thigh to thigh.  Huge tear right at the bottom of his ass, about 8 inches long. So big in fact, it looked like he was wearing an open diaper.  It was so gross - but I couldn't stop looking.  Ewwwww.....

It was a lonnng night.  And it ran about 10 minutes longer than it should've so i was in a big rush to get my check and leave.  They called my name to pick up my check and said "Jose Cadkfjalkjteino".  I figured there were no Mexican men in the group so I went to claim my check.  The guy says "Hose-A?".  I'm like ya that's me.  He says "Really?"  I say "Ya now Adios!"

God, I couldn't get out of there fast enough. 

I got home 5 minutes before The Booze Cruise.  Whew..... Usually when I play The Booze Cruise a big night is 4 peeps.  :)  I think tonight was a new world's record!  When I went out 3rd Neo Baby was left along with a guy called BerserkELF. 

BTW BerserkELF knocked out Boat so I shipped him his bounty.  He had no idea about the bounty so I explained it to him.  Then he says to me: "Thank you.  You sir, are a gentleman!"

WTF?

I thought for sure Boat put him up to it but Boaty denied doing so.  It must be my perfume or something!  Right now I'm wearing Calvin Klein Euphoria and I think it's nice.

Tomorrow at 10pm ET is The Dank and the continuation of Survive Donkey Island.  With only 5 peeps left this could get ugly.  I've been getting emails telling me all sorts of things that aren't true.  The boys are scrambling now!  The stories are getting taller and taller.  Immunity has never been more valuable.  If you want to play along, sign up for The Dank.  I'm already registered so just find veryjosie.  Password is still vegas1.

As some of you may know, I work at an architecture firm. Currently we (not me) are designing 3 new libraries:  The Westwood Library, The Hoyloke Library and The Krista McAuliffe Memorial Libary in Framingham, MA.  I often have to email clients because of contracts, pricing negotations, etc.  The head librarian's emails always end with the book he is currently reading.  I think that's so cool!

Example:

Sincerely,

Joe Schmoe
Head Librarian

currently reading, Of Mice and Men, John Steinbeck

I think the idea is way cool and I always Google whatever book he's pimping.  Since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I thought I'd start doing the same!  I'll end every post with what I'm currently reading and right now I'm reading a good one.

Play smart.

What is it Don is always carping on?

Oh, yeah...skill vs luck

JT88Keys said...

What's the buy-in for the Dank?

Josie said...

Ken, what he's really carping about is how enthralled he is with me since we met in Vegas - all that luck crap is bs.

JT the buy in is $10 +1. Hope to see you tonight!

"I have no idea how to play half those games"

Which half are you under the impression you know how to play?

Josie said...

LOL Bayne! Good one!

Speaking of being WRONG, I saw your post. Are you retarded? I'm not getting thrown under the bus!

Wolfshead said...

Didn't know those books with the Dick and Jane stories had an actual name, or haven't you reached that level yet?

I think the "book" signature is neat.

Wolfie, Bite me!

LOL Jamy, that's a good one!

You're gonna put yourself on Mom's shyt list, she hates that term. I knowbecause I say it to Patrick all the time and hear about it when she's around. Besides I don't ever remember Jane talking like that. Or did you go to Catholic school where it was John and Jean? They told Judy that all the time.

Josie said...

Wolfie, maybe if you introduced me to your mom in Vegas, I'd stop using the phrase.

I think you were avoiding introducing mom to your little online floozy! Hmpfh

Wolfshead said...

Hell, if I could have found Mom in Vegas i'd have introduced you. She disappears inside the banks of slot machines and it takes a team of St Bernards to find her

Josie thanks for rooting for me, sorry I wasn't able to bring it home. BTW I'm reading Poker Tells Essentials by Joe Navarro.
