Who wants a LOST rant?

I do! I do!

What a Sunday night.

Packing and upgrading

I have been working on this for a while, but until the last couple of weeks, I haven't really done much work to get it done.

However, a couple of weeks ago I finally got off my duff to begin doing something about it.

It's been a long time coming, but it's time for the site to move.

I finally got my own domain, and for now will post here and there. Starting next month I will begin posting there exclusively. The feeds will redirect and I will only post over there.

So, take out the blogspot of the address here, and you have the new site:

I'm building the blogroll slowly and tinkering with the format but I kinda like it now.

Feel free to drop on by.

In the meantime, after June, Blogger can go DIAF.

Live-blogging the Dankie

Dank? Mookie? Both?

I dunno, but let's live-blog it. I've played seven or eight of these tourneys and failed to cash so far. Deplorable. Fullt Tilt, please treat me a little better tonight. Mmmmkay?

10:00 Off with 84 runners so far. I only recognize two names at my table.

10:14: Waffles got moved to my left. Thank you God! Time to chip back up.

10:18: Take a small pot off Waffles to move back over a starting stack. We are at 91 donkeys tonight. Final table of 9 pays out, with the winner getting a 3-in-23 chnce of a Main Event seat.

10:20: Maybe some music will do too. Dude, next month pay for the server space to get your site back.

10:25: Fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, raise and take, fold, fold, fold, fold.....

10:33: Apparently folding 20 straight hands isn't enough to convince people to stay away. Pissed away about half my stack on that hand.

10:35: Do I want to try to bust Waffles? Sure.

10:36: AYFKM? My K-J v. his K-8. Guess what shows up on the flop.


Next hand, K-K, and I shove all 240 chips in...and run them into Aces.

I think I'll go back to Cake.

U can't touch this...

Hammer boats are frigging AWESOME!

I checked the BB and bet on every street, including a push on the river, and got called all the way down.

Still went out 60th in the Mookie/Dank out of 96...but it was fun. This edition of the BBT has been fun so far, even if it has been fruitless so far.

GeekDad in Practice

So, I'm solo with the kids all through the weekend. As usual, I try to make the weekend as packed as I possibly can.

Yesterday was a normal school day, with playground after school, a healthy dinner of chicken, broccoli, and macaroni (cut me SOME slack, after all) and in bed by 9:30 on a Friday.

(We'll ignore not being asleep until 11:00, as I was working on auditing an APO chapter's books last night while the kids were in bed with me. Hooray for multitasking!)

Today, I tried to pack in as much as I could, after a healthy, relaxed breakfast at home. Thankfully, the kids like strawberry waffles.

  • Ballet for Sammie, from 10 to 11.
  • Home to change.
  • Head to Emory, to deliver the paperwork used for the audit and discuss that Emory's APO chapter was doing a pretty darn good job.
  • Stop for snacks.
  • Stop at a dojo near the house to learn about possible classes for Alex.
  • Lunch - pizza.
  • Local comic book shops Raven's Nest and Dr. No's, for Free Comic Book Day. Each of the kids now has their first comic books ever - Iron Man for Alex, and Toy Story for Sammie.

Once home, a couple hours of cleaning, included folding several loads of laundry, before making chicken alfredo and movie night. In this case, we went with a disc of Return of the Jedi, instead of Revenge of the Sith which was on TV

Alex has seen all of the original trilogy, but none of the prequels. Thankfully, he likes all of the originals. Tomorrow, that will change, as we will watch Revenge of the Sith.

Sometimes, I do need to punidh him, but not so much as to make him sit through the Phantom Menace, and really I don't think I need to make him sit through Attack of the Clones either when I can barely sit through it.

Thankfully, this was still a fun and productive day.
