Not Quite Bullets
Las Vegas, NV
Once the Main Event of the WSOP rolls around, I barely have time to post here. Sadly, the Tao of Pauly slacks. Coventry slacks. And Truckin' is always late.
And with Twitter... it takes away even less time away from this little corner of the interwebs.
Alas, instead of taking ten minutes to write, I'll go with a bunch of short bursts on Tao of Pauly as I try to squeeze in random thoughts throughout my day...
... I woke up on Wednesday morning before my alarm went off, but I could have used another 2 straight days of sleep. I stayed up very late writing a satirical piece about poker agents. The good news is that I only have about one more week of this hellacious schedule. Then we go home to L.A. and go to the beach and relax and not think about poker.
.... I fly to Colorado in three weeks to see Phish at Red Rocks. That could come sooner.
... I'm addicted to The Cracked Egg. Sensational breakfast and a much healthier and cheaper option than that crap they serve us inside casinos. For example, if Nicky and I order room service breakfast for two (Denver omelete with coffee and bacon & eggs with ice tea) it costs almost $40 with tip. And this is ain't the Bellagio, it's at the lowly Gold Coast. This morning I went for the banana and chocolate chip pancakes at Cracked Egg. I've eaten there three times since last Saturday.
... I had to go to the bank, which is always an adventure in Nevada. Luckily, I got someone who knew what they were doing and I was able to conduct a few complicated and complex transactions. The tellers in LA always seem to screw that stuff up but the tellers in NYC are always on the ball. I lucked out with the Vegas branch. I now have cash to pay my writers!
... I have a small piece of a friend of mine from London who is playing in the Main Event. If he wins $1 million, I'll be able to buy my brother a car and take Nicky to Hawaii.
... I have eaten In-N-Out burger or at the old diner at least six times in the last seven days. I have been gambling on In-N-Out meals. I lost one to a British colleague last week and I'm gonna owe Benjo two trips. I have a feeling were going tonight for our dinner break.
... One of the Wayans brothers is playing in the WSOP. Also here? Jason Alexander otherwise known as George Costanza. He played on the TV table with former world champion Greg Raymer. Alexander advanced to Day 3.
