This: Above are a couple of photos of the Gloucester MA taken yesterday (Sunday) during the hurricane. Click on the pictures for awesomeness. I'm happy to say Irene did not exact her vengence on me. I never even lost electricity! Wheeeee!
That: Tomorrow's post will have Rakewell's answer on whether or not I had two show both my cards before I mucked them. Stay tuned!
The Other: My worlds are colliding! SmBoatDrinks is coming to Boston and was looking for tickets. I hooked him up with a couple. That's nice, right? But they're my boss's tickets. My boss (who is different from the awesome owner) never misses a game and is the nosiest guy I've ever met. He's already asked me a gajillion questions about Boaty. "How do you know him?"
"He's a poker friend."
"How can that be if he doesn't live around here?"
"Oh from online....."
"No you effing idiot, from online poker, plus I met him in Vegas in December."
Okay I really didn't call him an effing idiot (out loud) but I did say I met Boaty in Vegas even though I didn't. Why? Because if I told him I've never met the guy, he may not have given up the tickets....and because I didn't want the boss knowing about the poker blog, so I started babbling.....
Boaty's in for it though. This guy could give Mother Theresa the third degree, and he'll be sitting next to him for the WHOLE GAME. And no matter WHAT, Boat's been instructed to not mention the blog, regardless of the duress. Even if there's water boarding, and there just may be!
Ironically, the same boss was talking about someone he knew in Vermont and I piped up, like my friend that'll be using your tickets! So the boss says, well this person's name is Mike and I reply my friend's name is too! And he says "No it's not..." and all of a sudden I got confused. I mean I think of the guy as Boaty.....was his name Mike? Am I confusing him with Heff, Hoy, or the gazillion other poker bloggers named Mike? Shit, I don't even know anymore!
One More Thing: To the guy who reads my blog from Carlsbad, New Mexico....You rock! You are the most dedicated reader ever and you are my reader of the month! Drop me an email so I can thank you personally....and tell you what prize reader of the month gets!
