Last Post from Providence
Just a quick note to let everyone know this blog is not abandoned. Our apartment is mostly packed up, and the computers are next, so I won't be able to post for another week or so. We're packing up the moving van this Thursday, then leaving Friday morning for Minneapolis. It's a 20-hour drive which we're going to do in 2 days, with just one hotel stay because we'll have our cat with us. Then I start my new job the Tuesday after the 4th of July.
Bummer we're so busy during the WSOP. I've been hitting Pauly's and other blogs when I can, but I'm missing a lot.
Not much online poker lately -- I figure there'll be plenty of time for that once we're settled in the new city where we don't know many people! We did host a going-away party on Saturday night, and a poker game broke out around midnight and went past 3am. We played dealer's choice, and I got burned on some badly-played hands in wacky wild-card games (e.g., I had a straight flush lose to 5 of a kind that I should have seen coming). I was drunk off my ass but managed to less than a buy-in.
I was drunk of my ass on purpose: It was kind of an emotional evening for me, saying goodbye to so many good friends, so once I reached that point in the evening when I'm most prone to becoming maudlin, I quickly drank right past it, going to that point of inebriation where my sense of humor is that of a seventh-grader's -- lots of crude jokes that I don't remember all that well and was embrassed to have Mrs. Cheap Thrills recount for me. Heh heh.
OK, hopefully in a couple weeks I'll be posting about my first big win at the Canterbury. Until then hear are a couple quotes I came across recently that struck me as good poker wisdom:
Let us be thankful for the fools. But for them the rest of us could not succeed.
There are two cardinal sins from which all others spring: impatience and laziness.
(Bartlett's Familiar Quotations is good bathroom reading.)
