Yay! Wednesday is here. I think we can all agree that Wednesday is better than Monday or Tuesday. I had the weirdest experience the other day at the MGM Grand Poker Room. I stopped in to play a little poker just for a few hours because I was in the area and I had some time to waste before I had to head to a meeting.
I sat down at a brand new 1-2 NL game and as usual I was the only chick. I'm cool with that. This moronic kid that looked about 10 years old says to me "I'm sorry miss, this is poker, not poke him". I'm thinking how much I can't wait to take his money. But that's just how this table was. It was like a MAD TV skit on Comedy Central or something. It was definitely one of the most entertaining tables I've ever played on.
But, I digress. So, this guy is talking about Baltimore and how much he hates the place. I let him know that I'm from Baltimore. He's like "well, I actually lived in Pasadena, MD". I'm like "yeah? I went to High School there". He's like "well, I lived near Gibson Island". I'm like "i went to Chesapeake". Chesapeake High School is like 2 minutes from Gibson Island. He's like "oh god, you probably know my ex-wife". He tells me her last name and I'm like "Tina?? I know her - we used to be on the cheerleading squad together". He immediately orders a drink from the cocktail server and slinks down in his seat. Apparently there's a lot of bad blood there because she forced him to move back to her hometown (they met in Ohio). He built a nice house near the water and then she left him and she got to keep the hosue. Poor guy. He never expected to run into someone in Vegas that knew her. How funny?
Next thing I know this guy sits down next to me. He looks a tad bit familiar to me but I figured I'd seen him around the MGM before. He says "I've never played this game before - do you think you could give me a few pointers?" I start salivating and licking my chops. I very sweetly offer to "help" him. He was kidding though. Next he tells me that he plays like "lightning". I'm thinking "yeah, whatever you say buddy". He's like "you don't get it do you?" I never claimed to be intelligent. He's like "I have a blog too". Oh my god!!!!! It's Lightning36!!! How cool!??!! We are at the same table, in the same casino, at the same time, and we didn't even plan it. I didn't even have my camera dammit!!!!!!!!!! You know I hate to miss a good photo opportunity.
I swear it's such a small world.
Okay - quick question. I'm buying a new car. Not really a new one. I've decided to get rid of the Eclipse. It's a bit much. Really high payments and I lost my discounted insurance, so the rates are killing me. I've decided to just get a used car for now. I checked Craigslist and found a nice VW Jetta. I also found a nice Honda Civic. I contacted both people to find out when I can come by and look at the cars, but both of them are not located in Las Vegas. One of the cars is in Texas and one of the cars is in Sweden. Both of the prices they list include shipping to my front door. The car that is in Texas is actually listed on EBay. I saw pictures of both cars and they look and sound great and the prices are right. I guess my question is - would you ever buy a car without actually test driving it first? Does this seem like a really bad idea????
