I think I have been neglecting the Tao of Pauly. My poker blog's traffic doubled in the last week due to my intense World Series of Poker coverage. Some of that traffic is spilling over here, but not as much as I hoped. Anyway, I guess I should just ramble on a bit about what life is like living in Las Vegas.
I miss NYC. The food especially. I miss diners. I miss Chinese food. I miss real pizza. I have to spend $4 a slice here at the Rio casino where I work, and it sucks. I've been eating a lot of fast food. I eat Wendy's a ton. Probably because it's my favorite fast food joint and I never get to eat it in NYC. There's an In & Out burger within walking distance and I'm positive I'll grab some early int he week. I'm really jonesin' for Italian food as well. I have a kitchen in my apartment, but I'm too lazy to cook. Plus there are no pots and pans. Alas, it's fast food and whatever they serve at the Rio.
I've seen a few non-poker celebrities the last few days. Tobey Maguire has been spotted and even cashed in one event. James Woods is playing like every single tournament. I even spotted Jen Tilly. She's dating Phil "Unabomber" Laak, who's a poker player. I'm waiting for some other Hollyweird freaks to show up. That doesn't include Wil. He's not a freak, just a geek.
Thanks again to Wil who linked me up last week. I've been getting some good feedback about my coverage. It's hard ass work and I'm using my dinner break to blog on my main blog. That's how busy I've been.
I'm meeting and bonding with my fellow media types. Some of them are cool. One guy is a fellow blogger, Dan from Pokerati. He's from Texas and I don't hold that against him. He's chummy with Clonie Gowan, so I've been really nice to him so I can get an interview with Clonie. Just kidding. Dan's a cool guy and we went out to party together last night. I've been working so hard that I have zero time to party or play cards.
