So my first twitter today was something like "Welcome home from vacation. Your bank has failed, there's no gas in your city, and you've got $350K worth of quotes due today. Welcome back!"
Well, fuck. That about sums up my glowing return to North Cackalack. But there will be some stories forthcoming. Here are a few highlights of the trip -
I took the chip lead in the poker tourney at about the end of the rebuy period and held it to the final table.
Then I bubbled when the blinds went high and I went card dead while not shifting gears enough.
I crushed Jordan in a wing-eating contest.
Then I bobbled the snap on the Car Bomb Relay and my team never recovered.
After the wing-eating I headed back to the hotel for a little poop n' rally.
The Bash was glorious, with good tunes, more booze, hot chicks making out, and hanging with some of my best friends in the world.
I think I found the worst poker players in the world in Charleston, WV.
And still lost a buy-in. But I will return, oh yes, I will indeed...
Then got home yesterday to some other random silliness about falling skies, dropping Dows, and Wachovia being bought by Citi. Meh. I keep a lot of cash and can afford to pay my mortgage, so it'll be months before the effects of all this mess are felt at the Casa de Falstaff.
I'm in the office for a total of one day this week, then a couple days next week before I head out to Vegas for my buddy Brian's birthday! I'll try to hook up with anybody out there who wants a beer or seven.
Real recaps to come, including the tale of my legendary conquest of Jordan in the wing-eating conquest, but for now I must look busy.
