It has been 3 days since my last update. I’m going through a bit of a weird time right now. I did not discuss my last Saturday night, so I will do that now.
On Saturday, after Roc Con, we went to Matt’s house for food, drinks, and poker. I was ecstatic to hear that he was ordering pizza because Daniel and I haven’t had pizza in forever. Salvatore’s is delicious, I recommend their business. I will just throw that out there. It was a pretty good turnout, considering that, for a few weeks, it was just me and Daniel showing up to their house and eating their food. Jess’s brother Sean was there; we haven’t seen him since probably Park Ave Fest. He is fun to hang around, so that was awesome. Dan and Karen didn’t show up until later. We haven’t seen them since Park Ave Fest either. They don’t seem to come around the store as often now that they have moved out of the neighborhood, which is such a bummer. But I want to give my very official congratulations to them because they recently got engaged! He proposed while they were on vacation in Disney World. It sounded amazing. I’m so happy for them; they are two of the nicest people you could ever meet. Also, Daniel and Dan get along really well because they can both nerd out together about comic books, more so than anyone else I know.
It was a great night, and I almost won the poker game. Daniel pulled ahead in the end. I’m so proud because I taught him everything he knows.
Tonight was Taco Tuesday which is always a pleasure. I actually worked at the comic store this afternoon, but because it was a Tuesday, business was slow. After Daniel finished his shift and closed up the store, we headed over to their house for tacos and a few rounds of poker. Daniel won again! Just another sign of Armageddon. That, and the fact the Bills are 3-0. I think I’m starting to believe that the world might end next year, especially if the Bills miraculously make it to the Super Bowl. God help us if they win.
I’ll try to resume my regular updates again. My life has been boring lately, so I haven’t had much to write about. I hope that changes soon!
Yes, I miss when my life was like this every day.
This picture was taken literally moments before I dumped that glass of wine all over my Fantastic Four shirt and my newest bathing suit underneath it. Awesome.
Another Tuesday, and that means I am about to leave for Taco Tuesday at Matt’s house. Dennis is back from his vacation, so I’m hoping there will be lots of flushes winning tonight. Remember, if a flush wins, Dennis takes a shot of caramel Bailey’s.
After Daniel got back from school this afternoon, he seemed a little down, maybe a little stressed. So I made him watch an episode of Wipeout on Hulu. Wipeout is an ABC television show were 12 contestants compete across obstacle courses for $50,000. But really, it’s all about watching a lot of clumsy people run into things and fall into water many feet below them. I could tell that he enjoyed it because every time a girl leaped onto an obstacle and fell, he laughed. The women are notoriously bad at Wipeout. We don’t have a lot of upper body strength and they usually get these puny-looking women that look like they haven’t had a meal in a few weeks. It is always hilarious to watch the contestants do flips over themselves when they are knocked out by a sweeper arm or run into a moving platform. Obviously, the big balls are the star of the show, since that is the one obstacle that never changes from season to season.
If you haven’t seen an episode and you enjoy the type of comedy that is usually shown on America’s Funniest Home Videos, definitely go watch.
It’s Tuesday and I’m pretty excited to head to Matt’s house for Taco Tuesday. It is Jerry’s birthday and we are going to play Settlers of Catan. Of course, I hope this doesn’t mean we aren’t also going to play cards. It’s been quite some time since we have had enough people to have a good game of poker. And I’m feeling very lucky.
Yesterday I went to Boulder on Park for the first time. I met Jenab for lunch, except that I didn’t eat lunch. I just had a smoothie since I wasn’t very hungry at the time. We were served by this total hipster white boy with dreads. I guess it takes all kinds of people to run the world. And it takes hipsters to run coffee shops.
Do you ever have those days where you just feel good? Well, that’s how I’m feeling today.
Tonight’s post will have to be a short one, since I am about to head out to pick Daniel up from the comic store so we can go to Matt’s house for Taco Tuesday. I hope we will not be the only guests; it would be nice to see Dennis and Jerry, we haven’t seen them in a while.
I finally received my new phone today. This means I have to pledge to send Kelly my old phone so that she can have a full keyboard again. It’s like she’d gone back to the dark ages. In honor of my trusty old phone, here is an image I took from it.
He spotted me. This was taken at the butterfly conservatory in Oneonta. I hope to make it back there soon. It was a treat.
1. I kept Daniel company at the comic store while he worked. We played a game called Killer Bunnies and I won with the carrot named Flo. This a very rare occurrence since Flo just never seems to win.
2. It was Taco Tuesday! So after Daniel finished working, we went to Matt’s and Jessica’s house and ate tacos for dinner. Yum.
3. I won the lightning round of poker at Matt’s and Jessica’s house. This was after we had played one game of poker already. In the first game, Daniel and I were the first to be knocked out.
4. I saw a fox on the side of the road. It was cute and little and I did not hit or kill it with my car. Hurray!
This is similar to the picture I posted yesterday, but from a slightly different perspective. I loved everything about this flower when it bloomed.
Taco Tuesday is one of my favorite days of the week. Daniel and I headed over to Matt’s and Jessica’s house after he finished working at the comic store around 8pm. We ate some tacos, then played poker with Jerry and Dennis. I haven’t seen Jerry in months, so that was nice.
We didn’t stay for too long. Tacos and poker are an awesome combination.
A beautiful shot of Rochester and the Genesee, taken this past weekend.
Daniel and I went to Matt’s and Jessica’s house for Taco Tuesday. It’s pretty much what it sounds like. Daniel and I provided the Corona and limes.
We played a couple rounds of poker, which isn’t unusual. However, I had the greatest hand of the night. I was dealt pocket Jacks. This would have been plenty good enough to win that hand, since nobody else had anything. But then, on the flop, of all things, two more Jacks were laid down. Yes, that’s the coveted Four-of-a-Kind. It was awesome, but I couldn’t even bet big because everybody else just kept checking. But still, everyone was impressed with it, and it almost never happens. It’s certainly never happened to me. That was a pretty exciting moment in my poker “career”.
I guess I'm pretty lucky in other areas of my life too.
