No Sausage Here

Can you believe how rude SOME PEOPLE can be? If you don't know what I'm referring to, simply check out the first comment on my last post.  Hmfph!  It's truly amazing that he still has two good legs to walk on.  LOL  I suppose I open myself up for these comments by having a blog on the internet so it's truly no big deal. 

But if a man said that to me in person it would not end well. <---- That thought alone got me thinking about a rude comment I got repeatedly at the poker table at Foxwoods.  Once again, I suppose I set myself up for such comments with the way I play, yet I am never rude myself.  Do I tease and instigate?  I surely do, so perhaps that's why men feel free to let loose.

I do have one bit of free advice for Waffles though ---->'Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby. If you give her a house, she'll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart.

She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her. So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit!'

Blah.  I'm not even going to tell you about the rude comment* I got at Foxwoods - it makes Waffles' seem tame.  Of course he really is a tame little pussy cat anyway.

Instead I'll tell you about Survivor, which I watched last night.  Something (idiotic) happened last night that's never happened before in all the seasons I've watched.  The two key players are Cochraine (please no cock jokes lol) and Ozzy.

Cochraine is a dweeby looking harvard educated young man, who is physically the weakest man on his tribe, but quite intelligent.  Ozzy, cutie patootie, is easily the strongest man this season but dumb like a stump.  He already had an immunity idol, which means if he got voted off (and onto redemption island) he's immune and it doesn't count.  Nice insurance policy right?

Well they suspect the tribes will be merging in a day or two, which changes the game completely, and the other tribe has one more member than them, which could mean trouble.  Now the redemption island twist - when a person gets voted off they go to redemption island and must win a challenge against the next person who gets voted off.  this keeps happening until the merge.  at the merge whoever is left on RI gets to rejoin the game.

Ozzy decides that he wants to get voted off as he thinks can beat the woman who's been on redemption island.  he also thinks the merge happens in the next day or so, and then he'll be back to camp.

Cochraine was going to be voted off, but Ozzy takes his place.  OMFG what an idiot.  He also gives Cochraine his immunity idol, hoping he'll get it back when he returns. Cohraine was thrilled beyond words, as I'm sure you can imagine.

Ozzy goes from leader of his tribe with an immunity idol, to being one challenge away from being gone.  OMFG What an unnecessary gamble, and we're talking about $1,000,000 people!  That's the prize for sole survivor. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

I must go and work on my football picks.  I plan on making a big move this week that will move me up in the ranks. *fingers crossed*

Play smart.


*I suppose I could tell you about it, but if I type it out it'll put me in a bad mood for the next couple of hours.

"OMFG What an unnecessary gamble"

Sort of like going all in with 4-4, eh? rofl

I thought Waffles was the guy with the best real-life info here. Just sayin' ...

Josie said...

LOL yes, just like that!

Josie said...

Light,I've been thinking those two instances are not alike.

What ozzy did was like being chip leader by a large amount in a tourney but saying, screw that, i want to throw away most of these chips and THEN go all in with AK. That is what his move was like. Capisce?

yet I am never rude myself...why men feel free to let loose

rationalize, rationalise [ˈræʃənəˌlaɪz]
1. to justify (one's actions, esp discreditable actions, or beliefs) with plausible reasons, esp after the event
2. (Psychology) Psychol to indulge, often unchallenged, in excuses for or explanations of (behavior about which one feels uncomfortable or guilty)
3. To devise self-satisfying but incorrect reasons for (one's behavior)

lightning36 said...

No, Josie my dear, they are alike in that both were UNNECESSARY GAMBLES, which was my point.

So now Jordan is going to WPBT, huh? Looks like the cheese might be standing alone in Boston.

Josie said...

Ken, you have been one of the ruder people, so I must rationalize in order to be pleasant to you.

Light- yep it looks like jordan is going - but i think i'll be having the pleasure of his company in AC as well......hmmmm not sure though.

And no Light - it's an entirely different situation, but i suppose this isn't the first time we disagree.

lightning36 said...

Josie -- Jordan already stated that he is not going to AC when you planned.

And ... I will TRY to make this understandable for you ...

1) Josie wrote (about Ozzie) "OMFG What an unnecessary gamble"

2) Josie wrote (about going all in with 4-4) "Believe me, both Poker Grump and I KNOW this was a stupid shitty and unnecessary move."

3) Therefore, lightning36 wrote, to Josie's "OMFG What an unnecessary gamble" -- "Sort of like going all in with 4-4, eh?"

Of course they are entirely different situations. However, the commonality is that they were both unnecessary gambles/moves.

No need to thank me. I get my satisfaction just knowing that I am always right.

Josie said...

Light, Blah I think you're right. No Jordan or Lightning in AC. I will have to amuse myself with other men instead. *sniffle*

Light baby, you are comparing apples and oranges, but you go right ahead. Far be it from me to stop you.

I think what Josie is saying is that they are different because of what is at stake. A life changing amount of money ($1,000,000) vs. a small tournament with a first prize that would probably buy a nice TV or crappy used car (I'm guessing on the tourney amount).

Are they similar? Sure. Are they the same? No.

I do agree with Ken though. I think you rationalize some of your behavior because you're just playing around and the guys think it's cute, right? But in a poker game emotions and competitive juices change the way people react to things that would be no big deal otherwise. I only played online against you a couple of times and I know you rubbed me the wrong way in that environment even though I find you hilarious and charming otherwise.

Josie said...

JT baby!

1. I rubbed you the wrong way? lol that's just me playing poker....nothing personal I'm sure.

2. The major difference in Lightning's simile is this....I was shortstacked and Ozzy was not. As I stated previously Ozzy ruled his team AND had the immunity idol. i was not in that situation when i made my dumb move.

JTbaby....I will think on what you've said because I think it's sincere.
