Racing Against Time
Good afternoon everyone. I am literally in a race against time as I type this blog entry for you from a very nice library in North Las Vegas. I am not yet eligible for a library card, so I am using a computer for 15 minutes (it actually gave me 20, but shhhhh...). ;) I have many things that I can write about, including a ton of poker, but I am going to save the poker until Wednesday, with the exception of this little tease: In a 50-minute no-limit session at Bally's on Saturday, I managed to make more money in one hand than I had managed to lose over the total of 21 hours of limit sessions up to that point... :) There are still some incredibly weak 1/2 no-limit players in the desert, much to my surprise. All of the fish have not yet been caught... :) I need to give a shoutout to my beautiful host Carmel Josephine (beautiful, not hot, as there is evidently a difference, although I am unsure as to whether or not we have an official ruling on the word 'caliente' yet...). One thing that Miss Carmel has in her arsenal is a fantastic smile (she broke it out at the Thai restaurant that she treated me to when she was greeting the staff that she knew) - the smile just evokes the best in everyone else that is around. The Thai beef salad, spicy chili mint fried rice with seafood, and Thai milk tea that Carmel treated me to as I innocently thought I was riding along with her on a trip to Blockbuster was part of a luckily recurring theme for me during the past week and a half as generous people have been treating me to meals left and right. It is really nice to have good friends. A group of people composed of Carmel, my dad, Scott, Malay, Steve and his friends, Ryan and his friends, and the Aliante and M Resort Casinos have treated me to the meal mentioned above, chicken, steak, fish tacos, nachos, and pizza (among other things) during the past week and a half. I will RUN if I see a scale. The dreaded five-minute warning is now at the top of the monitor... The blogger app and trying to type entries from my phone sincerely sucks, but TRUST ME when I say that the quality of my blogs will VASTLY IMPROVE once I have full-time access to a computer due to the fact that I will have SO MUCH material living in the desert. Entering Bally's, one girl in a group of seven tourists stopped upon exiting the elevator to snap of photo of the SIGN advertising the buffet... :) Okay, I wish I could go on, but I need to enter this before time runs out. Have a great day and I'll see you again on Wednesday!
