It's not the end of the quest I seek..

..it's the journey... or something like that...

Oh this Poker Quest I have been on... what a journey... nothing much compared to some other more notable bloggers.... but, for my lil corner of the world, a very nice journey indeed.... I never really had any goal to this 'Quest'.. I just couldn't think of a name for the blog... seriously, thats the truth...but, I have managed to acquire a few 'treasures' along the way..some more mundane than others..

I have gotten 7 or so Royal Flushes.. score or so of straight flushes, accompanied by same number of quads... half a dozen HAMMER wins, and even more HAMMER losses...these are relatively petite treasures, in the whole scope of the quest...

More important, and infinately more valuable.. are the likes of Pauly, Derek, CJ, April, Scott, Adam.. and others I have met, or chatted with.. these people have taught me to be a better than average poker player.. and I attribute my break even status to thier frequent words of wisdom.... they, in their own way, and usually unaware, have also taught me to be a better person.... better to myself, and to others... so I thank them for these treasures...

So, the time has come to end the Quest... futile as it was... the journey will continue.. for, after all, it is all about the journey... yes?


I still suck at blogging..

Durn it.. both my choices in Survivor are gone!!! Now I got to pick a new one...

Tonight is Amazing Race 9!!

Still no poker to speak of... most of my money is at Titan, all 8 bucks of it.. but, for some reason it won't load.. hangs up at the log in... have been emaililng tech support last few days... they not much help.. prolly never see that 8 bucks again..

usually play for free money on absolute poker... the SNG's...

but mainly, my free computer time is still occupied with Dark Age of Camelot..

Be safe tonight if you go out!!!

I got my Directors Cut version of The Warriors in the mail today.. watched all the featurettes.. and man oh man am I giddy.... I have not watched the directors cut yet... I will soon tho.. but, if you are a fan of this movie, I highly recommend getting the directors cut version, which was released last October...

I don't have any poker news.. but, you prolly already knew that...

Going to Vegas

I am really close to booking a trip to vegas for the time frame of April 9th thru April 12th.. those days are pretty much set in stone... as my birthday is April 9th, and I thought I would give myself a nice bday present/trip.

I found a fairly good deal, or perhaps I should just call it 'an air/hotel package' I am comfortable with, I just need to decide if I want to stay 2 nites or 3. Staying a 3rd night is 70 dollars more..

I am going alone.. so, I am not sure I will need 3 nights... but, the 70 bucks is pretty insignificant.. so, prolly stay for 3 nights...

This is not going to affect the trip in July/August.. incase anyone might be worried about that..

I am also planning a trip to the Grand Coushatta, in Kinder LA., soon... that will prolly be a one night stay...wanted to go this weekend coming up, but, could not find a hotel room for a price I would be comfortable with... this trip may be March 30... and 31st... not sure yet..

Movies I have seen recently..

Ballad of Lil Joe.. about a woman living as a man in the 1880's or so.. ( after the civil war, before cars in the West. inspired by true story. I liked it.. was interesting..

Far from Heaven.. about how secret desires can destroy a life or a family.. stars Julianne Moore and Dennis Quaid... not too bad.. great performances all around.

Into the Blue.. Jessica Alba is hot

Brothers Grimm. not the best movie evermade.. but you can see the potential that all involved decided to ignore...

40 Year Old Virgin... hilarious....
