"I've paid my dues..., time after time..., I've done my sentence..., but committed no crime..." -Queen- (We Are The Champions)
Good morning everyone. I just took an unexpected four-hour nap, and I plan on waking up for the day (Thursday) in less than six hours, so why not write a blog entry for y'all? Things are still going well here in the desert. I plan on going to the Strip early tomorrow to make some football bets before work and the upcoming football weekend. I've been in worse spots... A year ago at this time, I was (unknowingly) on the precipice of walking to and from work in the "delightful" New England cold and rain and snow. I'll tell ya, I've "paid my dues" so many times in my life, moving from place to place, starting different jobs, and when I moved back East from Texas just over a year ago, I thought that everything had finally come together and made sense. So much for thinking... After encountering what can best be characterized as a general lack of respect on several fronts upon returning to my hometown, I can honestly say that I won't miss the long walks to and from work in the snow and cold (and TRUST ME when I say that last winter was a MILD winter in my hometown). I am so thankful that I won't be anywhere near the winter that New England is in store for this year. I am also thankful for the rides to and from work that I ultimately began receiving from my co-workers at Walmart. Prior to moving back to my hometown, I would have never thought that I'd be treated better by the people I worked with than some of the people I'd grown up with. Pretty surprising...
As for Las Vegas, we're hitting a stretch where the daily high temperatures are in the 70s, while the lows are in the 50s. For those of you who aren't familar with this part of the desert, the winter temperatures are usually just a little cooler than those in central Texas, while the summer temperatures are just a bit higher. For what it's worth, that's a "dry cold" and a "dry heat" that we're talking about... ;) Speaking of cold, I've been running bad at the poker tables for quite some time now. I took off about three weeks due to this streak of "run bad," but I decided to play a little last weekend. After losing about 40 dollars in an hour and a half, I said "*#@%*&% this," and I've decided to focus on betting football for just a little while longer. I believe that my job working in the sportsbooks out here has made me pay more attention to football during the week than I normally would have in the past. I have also been exposed firsthand to the wide vareity of bets that people place on games (different types of parlays, teasers, etc)... Long story short, I have had an enjoyable football season to this point, and have not lost all of my wages betting on the games. :) With that being said, I just had a REALLY BIG yawn, and I'm going to be waking up in less than five hours. Have a great weekend, and I'll see you soon...
