God, I hate working. Off today and tomorrow. Thank God, too, because last night, Mike and I went to the Steak n Shake at Easton to meet Blake at 10, and I didn't walk into my house until about 8:10. Yeah, we sat at SNS for NINE HOURS. Why? Poker. Seven cards, five cards, stud, draw, and Texas hold 'em. That one took te longest. We did that one for about four hours. The first two hours we played Egyptian Ratscrew, which I'm normally very good at, but Blake kicked my ass and Mike's. Not once, not twice, but THIRTEEN consecutive times. I gave up after 8, but Mike kept saying, "Let's go to ten!" then "One more!" then "One more again!" then "Okay, if he beats us after 13 games, then we'll stop." So that's when we did the five and seven card games for two hours, then the guy sitting at the table behind us told us about Texas (which Blake already knew how to play), and we did that for a looooog time. Mike and I think that guy was trying to con us, because somehow we got money involved (which none of us actually had, so we had to scrounge). In the end, Mike was out of money, te other guy, Matt, had the most money, I was in second and Blake was last. So for whatever reason, we all put our money in te middle of the table and played a final game for it, winner takes all. There was close to $20 in there, and about $8 was mine, and the rest of it was Matt's. I was not okay with the possibility of losing all my money, because that was all the cash I had on me, but I wasn't sure I had a say in it, so I just kept quiet and prayed that I won. Blake won. That was good, too, because he gave me my 5 dollar bill back. The other $3 I had was just change, so I didn't care about that, I just wanted my damn 5. (Oh, and i case anyone wanted to know, once I got home I only slept for about five hours. So much for looking for a new job today. Maybe tomorrow.)
I have to get going, I think. I still have something to do on this here computer (laptop), and then there's the whole dinner at Mike's mom's house, so lots of love to everyone.
( Amanda, in light of your current situation, this is for you.Collapse )
