The Waffle House Chronicles...

Just another weekend?

So Friday after work I got out on the bike, 30 miles with Jerry, Kelson and Jen. Great riding weather. Got home in time to take a shower, grab a quick bite and head over to Dean and Beth's house for poker. So after eating some snacks and hanging out poker got under way. I thought the table I was at was kind of stacked, it had both hosts and Dean's two best friends and then my wife and I got on the same table along with Tracy. Well second hand in, I had folded and went to get some more snacks. I am walking back and I see that there were two aces up. Interesting. Well Dean was betting hard and so was Beth but Beth (who had pocket aces) still wasn't going all in like Dean had hoped. But eventually Dean made a bet that included him getting out of his chair and proposing and she said yes! It was awesome and a whole lot of fun! We were very happy to be at his table and to be there that night. I guess one of Dean's friends stacked the deck for this scenario (Jess, Tracy and I all had 2-7, I am not sure what the 2-7 significance was but knowing Dean there was something there) and switched decks before the other friend could deal (they were both in on it.) We were able to redeal the hand and although neither could concetrate much I think they both made the final table (along with me but I was the first to go from the final table which I was ok with.) Dean ended up getting 2nd place in the record book but I think he was ok with how the night turned out!

One lesson I learned on Friday night is that my body will no longer allow me to drink beers. I had two beers that night and I was tired and my stomach was messed all night. I could hardly sleep that night because of the beer and I woke up with heartburn in the middle of the night, woke up early because my stomach was still weird and I had digestive issues Saturday morning. Beer is bad and not that I really drink it much but I don't think I am going to drink any beer any more.

Saturda I got some basketball in. We only had like 11-12 guys (probably because of Crazy Legs) so I played 2 hours straight. A little grocery shopping after and then Jess and I went to watch the start of Crazy Legs and hit the farmers' market. Oh yeah, and the first spicy cheese bread of the year was pimp! We then went to the fork and spoon cafe for the world's worst mac and cheese...hands down. It was so bad that Jess and I shared a bowl that looked really small and we didn't even finish it. And I can usually finish everything. I did was the bad taste out of my mouth with some sweet gelato at the Java Cat so not all was lost. Got home and was tired so I napped a bit while watching the draft (which was 100% whack this year) and then it was off to dodgeball.

Dodgeball was outside in volleyball courts. It was the best dodgeball ever, in the sun and sand and all fun times. They had free pizza and wings and I passed on the free beer. We lost all three of our games (we played the 1st, 2nd and 4th place teams) and were done, although I did get to play in the championship round with another team who was short a guy. Anyways, our season is over and we held on for 5th place and we will be rewarded $100 for our efforts. Outdoor is the best way to play dodgeball. We got home and got the hot tub under control and cleaned the deck and then did a whole lot of nothing.

Sunday came and I read the paper and drank my coffee as normal. We then went to the bark park and started on some yard work. Three hours later I was sun-fried but that was ok. I layed low in the air conditioning for the past three hours and now it's over to the in-laws for some pizza.

Oh yeah, I bought a new digital camera today, I'll probably go pick it up tomorrow so expect more photos on the blog as now I'll carry one with me alot more often (this one is a little guy I can just carry on my bike or whereever.)


  • No Beer at all! Jerry is going to be so upset with you!

  • 2-7 off suit is statistically the worst starting hand in poker.

    Glad to hear you made the final table, not sure where I went wrong. I've just been disappointing in my performances lately.

    Oh well, something to look to improve for next time.
