Good afternoon everyone. There's not a lot going on yet here today, but there should be... I worked last night..., well... I was scheduled to work my normal shift, but I was able to take an early out after only two hours. I ended up going to bed at least a couple of hours before I would have had I worked my full shift, and I slept for about TEN hours, which is BY FAR the most that I have slept consecutively in quite a while.
One bright side about getting through my "marathon" two-hour work session last night is that I am just that much closer to boarding the plane for Las Vegas. As I've said before, one of the many good things about this trip is that it will allow me to completely bypass that first week of eerie silence that you experience in San Marcos, America between the long semesters. At this time next week I should be somewhere in the desert, filling out football parlay tickets or playing poker or exchanging worn-down clay casino chips for fresh ones to wear down... :) Maybe I'll be sharing a late breakfast or an early lunch with one of my Vegas friends, or I'll see a pair of familiar windpants pass by me, and I'll yell, "HEY, WHERE DID YOU GET THOSE??!!" And then the chase will ensue, and you'll never hear anything about it, because "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas..." Okay, honestly, if a CHASE actually ensues, you'll probably at least read something about it... :)
As I've said, the football and poker sponsorship pool for my upcoming trip is now filled, and I am grateful for that. Now I need to figure out where and when I'll be playing poker and which football bets I like. I guess that I will be posting some bowl game predictions this week before I leave if I want to include all 35 bowl games. The first bowl games actually take place on Saturday, so I won't be able to include all of them in the ridiculous spree of parlay ticket filling that I will be embarking upon not so far into the future. Yes, I will ONLY be able to book action on 33 of the 35 bowl games my friends (sniffle, sniffle...). Oh yeah, and Week 16 of the NFL schedule, let's not forget that...
Okay, I better get to some of the "constructive" things that I could be doing. I hope that you have a great day and I'll see you again tomorrow!
