Thank god it's Friday
I was dealt a shocking blow last night at work. I leaned over my boss's shoulder to look at the new schedule for next week and I was aghast to see that I'm supposed to be working 6 days. Ummmmmmm WTF??? How do you go from working 2 days a week to working 6 days a week??!! And why oh why of all weeks does this have to be the week that my parents come into town AND the week that the bloggers come into town????? It's not like I could have requested the time off because I'm brand spanking new. This is the week that everyone else requested off and I'm left behind to pick up the pieces and fill in. SHIT SHIT SHIT!!!!! I was able to talk my boss into giving me one extra day off in the beginning of the week so that I could spend at least some time with my family, but that was all he was budging. I couldn't even get 2 days off in a row. UGH!
Anyway, so I'm off Monday and Wednesday. I have to work every other day including Friday night (when everyone arrives in Vegas), Saturday night (the blogger tournament and pajama party) and Sunday night (last day bloggers are in town).
Okay, I'm gonna get off the pity pot now. The good thing is that the WPBT starts at 10 in the morning and I don't have to be to work until 5 p.m. So, I can probably still play. The other good thing is that I don't work any days (only swings), so I will have all of my days free to hang with my parents and I can even meet up with them after work if they want to play late night poker. See? I can look on the bright side too :) I guess I shouldn't have complained so much about only getting two days this week, cause now look what I got!
Today, there is a possibility that we might meet up with CC to have lunch. I know he's really busy covering the World Series, so I won't get my hopes up, but it's a definite possibility. Of course I'll take pictures if we do. Do yourself a favor and check out his site if you haven't done so yet. He updates several times a day and I love that. For more great WSOP coverage checkout Pauly and Otis - they are all doing a fantastic job of covering the event.
MiamiDon and I are going to the MGM today to play some live NLHE. We had such a short session the other day at the Red Rock, I think we are both salivating and ready to play again. Online just doesn't give me the fix I need sometimes.
I saw this on T.V. the other day...
Woman's Ex Sends Severed Finger In The Mail
(AP) CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas Texas officials are seeking a woman's ex-boyfriend, after the mail brought her a severed finger and the message, "This is my last chance to touch you."
Corpus Christi police say they're not sure which finger it was or how it was cut off. But they say it "wasn't mangled" and was apparently washed before it was mailed Friday.
The woman had filed for an emergency protective order from the man last week.
Police say the man faces misdemeanor charges from a previous report of family violence this month. The threatening letter could bring more charges.
