I watched the game at my mother's house because my sis was bringing over the new boyfriend to meet everyone. The night before, my mother called me to ask what I was wearing to this blessed event. She of course had her outfit ready. I told her I'd be wearing jeans and a sweater.
"A sweater? How bout that nice blouse you wore to the wake?" Um, no. I wasn't going to a wake. I was going to my mom's house for dinner and football. I get that she wanted to make a good impression with my sis' friend and she was a bit nervous but I don't get dressed up, especially if I'm not working and I don't have to.
Turns out Drew Bledsoe was one of the honorary captains of the game and so I decided to pull out my #11 Drew Bledsoe football jersey, which is a very large man's shirt. Keep in mind I'm a short mo' fo' so it's kind of long on me, but so what.
I get to my mother's house and she looks at me horrified. "You're gonna meet him like that? You look like a plumber!"
"What are you talking about?"
"My cousin's nephew, Imbrescia the plumber, he dresses like that. And you dress like that to meet your sister's boyfriend? Go fix a the toilet."
Sheesh. Note to self...oversized Patriots jerseys are not the most flattering on me.
The BF was extremely nice and all dressed up. (oops) He asked if I was a Patriots fan and I answered...
"Wanna see my Patriots underwear?"
"Madonna mia, my daughter she's a kidder. Go get the scuola pasta! Josephine The Plumber, Go!"
And from my mom later on "Hey Jo, who's that Hedda Mills? She was on TV." Hmmmm On TV. Well that narrows it down. I tell her I have no idea but guess that maybe she's an old movie star.
"No! Come on, you gotta know her."
"I don't know Ma."
"She has only one leg but she was on Dancing With The Stars".
Ohhhh Heather Mills. Natch.
Alf, the BF says to me "So you're a rock star?" Huh? He'd been looking at some of the
My mother always calls me "Jo" and at one point when she said it my sister says "You mean Joe C?" Starts laughing and says "She likes it when you call her Joe C." Biatch. I explain the Joe C. nickname to my mother; how some people tease me that I'm a guy and not a woman.
Well, do you dressa like THAT when you see them?
I betcha Mojo remembers her!
As far as poker goes, it's been a wild rollercoaster on Black Chip Poker. I played a 500+ peep tourney on Saturday night and came in 33rd, which was triple my buyin but it still sucked. Lost with KK vs 99. Starting to hate kings. Then I took $25 to a .10/.25 cash game and grinded it up to $125 cuz I rock.
Tonight I lost a big tourney I was playing in. 430 peeps, 54 itm and I donked out 65th. Blah. For both of these tourneys I was in the top ten for quite a while, so I chip up early and get myself a comfortable stack, and then the wheels fall off. I'm not happy with this as it's the same old shiat. I need to make some sort of adjustment....or.....I could just stick to cash. The thing is Mama likes tourneys.
Oh and I was tweeting all weekend. Duggle Bogey taught me how to send a private tweet while he was cooking dinner, which btw, I mastered. I'm like a tweeting pro now.
The biggest news of all is my friend Tony. Remember him? By the time you're reading this he'll have EIGHT days machine free under his belt. Eight. He's been winning far more than he's lost at poker and because he's abstained from the machines, his bankroll is growing and he's in far better shape than he was in a short while ago. He's also been making phone calls to a therapist at the UNLV that and I know that will really help him. He's doing all the right things he needs to do to improve his situation and I am so very proud of him. Hi Tony! Way to go!
That's about it. Two weeks until the Patriots CRUSH the Giants, because like me, pay back's a bitch.
