Las Vegas, NV
I sort of tweaked my back yesterday. Nothing too serious. I fell out of my chair at home. I read something on the intertubes, laughed so hard, and slipped.
Last year by the time, I thought I had The Gout. Turned out that it was just The Otis Rash instead. Thus far? No sightings of the rash.
Nicky and I ate at OHOP twice in the last three days. The first waitress we got on Saturday had her shit together. She was jacked up on happy pills and speed and tons of coffee. Yesterday, our waitress was slow as shit. I had to get my own set up from the table near by. It took several minutes for her to take our order while people seated after us in different sections, got their orders and food up before us. I usually tip well... 20-25%. So I tipped her 14.5%.
American Express offered me a Plum Card. If I pay my bill within 10 days, I get a 2% discount. Hmmmmmmmmmmm.....
I discovered that I write better at home (late nights by the pool, early morning at the desk) than in the press box at the Rio Casino. Too many distractions. Even if I put on headphones, I get a tap on my shoulder every five minutes with someone needing something...
Last night, Michalski and I taped our latest segment of Tao of Pokerati at the Hooker Bar.
I have not played a single hand of live poker since the WSOP began.
I am 4-0 betting on soccer... in the European Championships. I have Germany going all the way. Their odds keep dropping but I locked them in at 3-1.
I might bet the Lakers in Game 3... depending on the spread. At -9, that's tough. Anything higher and I gotta take the Celtics.
Nicky has been busting her ass. Poor girl got some of her work poached. Another media rep who is a total hack and shitty writer cut and paste Nicky's work and passed it off as their own. Ouch. Happens to me all the time, but it definitely put her in a dour mood. I totally lost respect for the cut&paster.
Tao of Poker almost got linked up on Fark yesterday. Man, I was mentioned in their comments section - yet that still sent a slew of traffic my way. Today, my big link is from a Danish poker forum. The Danes have been stopping by the Tao in waves today.
I started a new series on Coventry where I recap Phish's tour in Japan in 2000.
The Joker returned from Wakrusa festival where he shot this NSFW video...
Man, I love hippie chicks.
