You would think I'd have something better to do my time. I don't.

19 out of 22

I wonder when the whole Poker fad is going to die off. Everyone and their mother is into poker right now. It seems to be saturating the airwaves with Celebrity Poker, World Poker Tournament, World Series of Poker and even a special Poker Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. But I have to admit for now I am a Poker Lemming and I like it.
Friday night's Poker Tourney in Whittier did not prove to be fruitful for me. I thought I studied enough by playing some Party Poker and watching some WPT, but I totally did not. The tourney consisted of 22 people and 4 tables with 5 to 6 players at each table. With a buy-in of $5, I didn't feel too guilty about playing, but I got out sooooo early. There were some serious gamblers with alot of talk and no action and a few with no talk and all the action. Even though I didn't play for long it was awesome to see the people that had never played before make it to the final table. Sometimes they are the best players and come out on top because they have no idea what they are getting into or even if they have a great hand or not. There is no rhyme or reason to their play, no strategy and therefore you can't get a good read on them. As for my play, basically, I didn't get any good cards and I played some really bad hands. Fortunately, there was some booze and food to ease the pain of an early loss.

Dropped $60

I went to Michaels last night to pick up product for the Halloween Costume. One can just get so crazy in there. Its like the Vegas Strip but for arts and crafts people. You can find anything and everything if you wish to be craftsy. Over the last couple of weeks I've been doing a few sketches, making some notes and taking some advice as to how to make the Bachelor Bookcase. I had a rough idea in my head as to how to do it. But everything changed when I entered. The synapses in my brain were firing at rapid speed. Adrenalin overcame me and I went into overdrive. I did an initial walkabout the store to see what was around, what was offered, what I could use. I liken this to doing a walkabout in a bar or club. You do a quick looksy to see whose cute and where the good stuff is. Anywhoo...every idea that I originally had got tossed. So many things caught my eye and a new masterpiece was forming internally. On my second go around I had grabbed pieces of wood, foam core, flowers, glue, yarn and all without a cart. What the hell was I thinking?? I went back for a cart and started loading up some more. A good 1 1/2 hours were spent in Micheals.

At evening's end, to be honest I thought..okay..$30. This is 30 bucks. Nope tally ran close to $60. WTF?!

Okay..this better turn out awesome.

Huell Howser

I freakin' love Huell Howser. Have you ever watched his show? He's this older Tennessean that hosts various shows that focus on California. He's not your nerdy David Horowitz that fights back, he's not Fred Roggin with a bad tupee and he's not no George Papadakis(sp?) with the stupid homemade vests. One show that Huell hosts is a local Southern California show called "Visiting...with Huell Howser."

This program, which airs on KCET (Los Angeles), takes him to the neighborhoods of Los Angeles to meet and talk with the interesting and diverse peoples that make up the city's vast community. He's visited Pink's famous Hotdog stand on LaBrea, he's met the Gayton family which has made Chicharrones since the early 1900s, and he's even visited the Sons of Norway Lodge in Van Nuys, where he watched as members transform smelly, dried, leathery fish into a warm entree, called Lutefisk. Ok..maybe the shows that interest me more are the ones that deal with food. But what the hell? This is all in LA!!? I've lived in LA all my life and I had no idea that most of this stuff existed. Huell Rocks.

Rilo - Jenny/Blake reference

Rilo Kiley reference! Rilo Kiley reference! Rilo Kiley reference!

I just saw a taped Gilmore Girls episode tonight. The character Lane made the main character Rory listen to 2 different Rilo Kiley songs.

"Listen I'm going to play you 2 rilo kiley songs. One pre-jenny/blake breakup, one post. Tell me if there is a quality difference".

What am I?

Halloween is just around the corner. What the hell am I going to be? I had already been mulling it over for weeks even without any type of Halloween party plans or invites. Now with a few invites already in my pocket...the time is here and the pressure is on. Last year I was the 405/101 freeway interchange. It was quite awesome with 50 different hot wheels glued to my chest, offramps coming off my shoulders and a freeway sign affixed to my forehead. The only downside was how freakin' heavy that thing was. How the hell am I going top that? Anyway..back to the task at hand.
I'm not one for the "its Halloween so its an excuse to wear a slutty outfit" outfit and even if I had the body for one I never would. So a creative outfit it is! So many ideas have come and gone, but the tally now stands with 2 choices. 1) the one that I'm going to attempt to make and 2) the back up costume that can be made in no time.

So here we go. For now I plan on being "THE BOOKCASE THAT HOLDS THE PICTURES OF THE BACHELORETTES in THE BACHELOR". Now for those of you who don't watch the bachelor know nothing of what I speak and those of you who do I applaud you. So you can see my dilemma. How the hell am I going to build that on my body? I'm thinking some foam core and some fabric and a few fakey roses.

As for the backup...well its as simple as being an iPod ad. Wear some black, attach bright green poster board to my back and carry around my iPod.

I'm hoping that I don't have to fall back on the backup. to Michael's I go.

Aint no party like a west coast party

The old roomies minus Kristy got together for a little BBQ potluck action at Doc Laura's apartment this week. Menu was as follows:

Carne Asada
Spanish Rice
Chinese Chicken Salad
Guac with Chips and Salsa
Home made snickerdoodles (yes I said snickerdoodle)
Caramel Chocolate Mousse Cake

I don't really remember what we talked about. The margaritas were seriously trouble. I remember something about not being the first door from the street, loud neighbor sex at 3am, the old days when fresh cookies were always made, heavy heads and attempting to not get bucked off while holding on for dear life.

As you can see everyone passed out shortly after.

Back to Dimples

Its been a couple of years, but I've revisted Dimples once again. Carol and I decided we would meet for drinks after work today. Well it was to be drinks and then a movie. So we meet at Dalts for happy hour. Then we decided we hated every movie that's out right now. So, we walked to Dimples. I think the last time i was there was for Gina's bday when we rented a limo. Fun times. Anyway, Dimples is as gaudy as ever. Thursday night and all the work freaks from WB, Disney and any other surrounding Olive and Riverside buildings were out and about. It was entertainment galore. I saw a birthday boy fall off his seat, picked up by the bouncer, lap danced by a Britney look alike and then he himself got up and sung an Eminem song all in the span of 15 minutes. Did I mention Dimples is a karaoke place. I love me the karaoke.

One thing that was extremely disturbing was the amount of pictures that were in rotation on all the screen tvs with people simulating blow jobs. It was blow job after blow job. WTF???? Gross! I think I saw 100 some pics. These are patrons of Dimples at Dimples. Carol and I think they had to have been paid with a shot or 2 just to even think about taking those pictures. Not that Dimples is a high class establishment in the least but damn...things have sure gone trashier than ever. Did I tell you that there were Britney and Kevin lookalikes everywhere? UGH!

I went with Poker

So..I decided to go with going to Poker night.

Granted I like to gamble once in awhile. Some say its in my blood. But in the end I decided to go with poker because I would be hanging out with good friends. Its not about taking the pot and winning a good bit of chump change. I saw it as an opportunity to have some fellowship with people I care about. We grilled some carne asada, drank some cocktails, discussed Bennifer part II, talked real estate, and just talked about our lives in general. Just good times in general.

I think I made the right decision.

3rd Annual Vegas Weekend 2005 is already in the works.
