Musta been the Lucky Buck!

Tonight, I was in the mood to play me some pokah! Of course, my accounts online were at a balance of zerooooooooooo. I could reload, but I've been trying to watch my spending.

Then I saw Jordan on the IM. He had $10 to return to me from the chess challenge I didn't play (which would have been a waste). He gladly sent me the $10 plus an extra buck. I foiled his plan of taking it all right back via a one on one match. We ultimately decided on playing an $11 two table SNG and sent an invite to Fluxer to join us.

The game was fun. But even better was hanging out with my buddies and enjoying some Donkalicious poker play.

Flux got screwed and busted early on with TT, vs 99 and AK. Jordan made a nice come back from a short stack. Then doubled up when he had AA vs my KQ. Then it was a race to the finish. We figured one of us would make it. I pushed with AK of diamonds and Jordan called with QQ. I hit the flop and Jordan busted on the bubble. He was very gracious and continued to cheer for me till the end when I finished second.

Great playing with ya guys!!! And don't worry Jordan, I still want that HU game....

Speaking of HU, go sign-up for HUC5 already!!!!!!

So has anyone been wondering about me? I've been around here and there. The other night Mr. Dreamy invited me to play a Super Sat to the FTOPs Main Event with a bunch of bloggers. Even though I didn't make it, I thought it was a cool idea. Fluxer made it to the Sat, but unfortunately didn't land a seat to the main event.

I did win a $75 and $26 token this week. Not sure what to use it on.

Most of my focus lately has been on finding a new place to live. I will be enduring the ordeal of moving again the end of this month. I'm looking forward to more space. I still have way too much stuff for an apartment. The new place is 1200 sq. ft compared to my current 900 sq ft place. But more than that, here are the other cool features:

1) It is 16 minutes from work!!!!!!! (you guys know how much I always spend driving, this is gonna be heaven and who knows might even give me the chance to play some more blogger events that are wayyyyyyy too early)

2) The school district is great. It rates a 9 on the Great Schools site.

3) Did I mention 1200 sq ft for a 2 bedroom?

4) It is a single story place. (I won't miss the hearing the bed banging on the second floor. Yeah...I'm jealous!)

5) Walk in Closet!!!!!!!!! Oh yeah, I need every inch.

6) Close to the Laundry room. I just take a short walk about 50 feet and I'm there. Anything to make the laundry experience more tolerable is a plus.

7) Large Patio. This one is actually large enough to put a table, BBQ, or whatever.

8) Parking spot is close to the apartment. After hauling things from parking lot to apartment..I think I will love this.

Hasta Luego all....
