Aging Like Fine Wine, Uncorked

14th January 2013 by admin No Comments

As I get older, not much has changed in my life. Although I’ve now noticed when I buy a lottery ticket, I no longer get the option where they pay it out over the next 25 years. I want that cash now, in small untraceable bills, just in case I’m not around to spend it. […]

The Hotel Treatment

13th January 2013 by admin No Comments

I’ve had the pleasure of staying at many unpleasurable motels. I say “motels” here because I’ve generally found “hotels” to be of a good quality, or at least good enough that I don’t feel like pulling the furniture up against the door while I sleep like I do in motels. I’ve always been fascinated with […]

Online Poker? Why, I Hardly Know Her

7th February 2011 by admin No Comments

Poker can be a fun game. And I don’t mean funny “ha-ha,” but more like funny “aarrrrggggghhh,” especially when you’re just starting out. If the internet is good for nothing else (and judging from my Twitter feed, it might not be) at least it’s good to learn how to play poker. It used to be […]

Poker Made Easy-ish

9th December 2010 by admin No Comments

I’ve always loved games of chance for one simple reason. I’m very good at them, as long as there’s no actual money on them. If we’re playing for matches, chips, or miscellaneous debris, I will beat you down like Joe Pesci in Casino. However, when actual money gets on the table, I’m totally Don Rickles […]

Online Pokered Up

Poker can be a fun game. And I don’t mean funny “ha-ha,” but more like funny “kill me,” especially when you’re just starting out. If the internet is good for nothing else (and judging from my Twitter feed, it might not be) at least it’s good to learn how to play online poker. It used […]

Party Animus

11th November 2010 by admin No Comments

Just once in my life, I’d like to go to a real party. You know, like the ones they see on TV. Like the kind Aziz Ansari would throw. I want to be served tiny amounts of expensive, well-orchestrated food off of a serving plate that costs more than my car. I want to stop […]

Safe At Home

28th October 2010 by admin No Comments

I saw in the newspaper (okay, on the newspaper website) where there was a shooting at my old apartment complex. Actually in front of my apartment. Okay, actually IN my old parking space. Now, this kind of thing makes me want to check out some security systems and see if they’ve got anything in a […]

Wealth, Debt, And Why I Only Have One

12th October 2010 by admin No Comments

Confession time. I’m not necessarily what you’d call “good with money.” When I bought my house, I read all the documents, worked out the numbers,and came up with a financial gameplan where I would pay roughly nine hundred bucks a month for my house, with about three dollars of that going to the principal, six […]

Mid-Life Crisis On Infinite Earths

5th September 2010 by admin No Comments

I am now 42 years old. Some people refer to that as “middle aged,” but to assume that would be pretty presumptuous, based on my eating habits. And by “eating habits,” I mean “eating whatever is in front of me until I’m too uncomfortable to continue.” Not too much has changed in my life, other […]

Poker-mon

Vacation, All I’ve Ever Wanted

3rd March 2010 by admin No Comments

It’s been a long, long month. Hoo-BOY, has it ever been. The garage sale came and went, and only took about 72 hours of standing on my feet while approximately 6000 people came through, stuffing one dollar bills into my hands and walked off with crap I was going to throw in the dumpster anyway. […]
