Rita, Rita, Rita.. The one-two punch of Katrina, Rita has much of the Gulf Coast scrambling... if not for the possible and likely devastation, destruction, and deaths, this could be funny.... It is truly unlike anything I have ever seen, in my humble 43 years of existance...

Traffic jams, if that is the correct term.. from Houston all the way to Austin, San Antonio and most of the way to Dallas.. stranded motorists who were prolly bettre off just staying put... now have to be 're-evacuated' from thier non functioning automobiles, on the interstate, not too terribly far from the main track of the storm..

Stores in Austin completely out of water, canned goods, batteries, diapers, bread, eggs.... Most gas stations out of gas, or darn near close.... not to mention the lines to get the gas, if they have any....

Your prolly not going to find a vacant hotel room in Austin, or perhaps, in any Texas city, this weekend.. as far as Austin, The Annual ACL festival pretty much had 80% of the rooms booked up months ago...

Alot of state employees, specifically, the indiviuals that handle cases, new and existing.. cases concerning people requiring benefits... became over whelmed with the 250,000 plus cases added to the already too heavy load, from Katrina refugees.. and now... the Governor has mandated that State employees are allowed to take off from work IF.. they have immediate family on the gulf coast.. this is reasonable.. several people did go, and did board up houses, family business, and pack up and move thier parents, sisters, grandparents.. next week, they will be allowed another day or two, to help return these same loved ones to thier Gulf Coast homes...

Rita and its outter tentrils may miss Austin completely...but, Austin is certainly be affected by the storm, as prolly most Texas cities...

Local poker tourneys are cancelled due to the need to accomodate family. HS football games being played on Thursday, not Friday, flight plans being cancelled, the list could go on and on and on...

I have a trip to Grand Coushatta, Oct 3,4,5... not too sure right now if we are still going to make that trip...

Played lil if any poker in the last few days.... watched:

SURVIVOR last nite, and let me tell you. I hope every challenge involves mud.. it was the most beautiful tug of war I have ever seen... Steph is still in it.. so, I'll keep watching..

I had thought Amazing Race premiered last night, but, it is actually next Tuesday night... all well...

Season Premier of CSI:The Original and the best. it was pretty good...

went to bed early, at 9pm.. gosh I'm old.....

Got a $200 free roll on Doyles Room this Saturday.. only about 11 people are invited... top 4 play... I may be able to cash by just folding every hand... but, I expect to be drinking a few beers, so, am pretty sure there will be few folds...

A Lawyer and a Blonde A lawyer and a blonde woman are sitting next to each other on a long flight from L.A. to New York. The lawyer leans over to her and asks if she would like to play a fun game. The blonde is tired and just wants to take a nap, so she politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists and explains how the game works:

"I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me, and visa-versa."
Again, she politely declines and tries to get some sleep. The chauvinistic lawyer figures he will easily win the match since his opponent is a blonde, so he makes another offer:
"Okay, how about this. If you don't know the answer you pay me only $5, but if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $50."
This catches the blonde's attention and,
figuring that there will be no end to this torment unless she plays, she agrees to play the game.
The lawyer asks the first question.
"What's the distance from the earth
to the moon?"
The blonde doesn't say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a five-dollar bill and hands it to the lawyer. Now it's the blonde's turn. She asks the lawyer,
"What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?"
The lawyer looks at her with a puzzled look.
He takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references. He taps into the airphone with his modem and searches the Net and even the Library of Congress. Frustrated, he sends e-mails to all his friends and co-workers - all to no avail. After over an hour of searching for the answer, he finally gives up. He wakes the blonde and hands her $50. The
blonde politely takes the $50 and turns away to get back to sleep. The lawyer, who is more than a little frustrated, wakes the blonde and asks,
"Well, so what IS the answer?"
Again without a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5, and goes back to sleep.
