Calling Occupants of Inteplanetary Craft

During the course of my avoidance of online poker this week (nudge-nudge, wink-wink), I checked into my various online accounts for some numbers, which included a rare stop at Neteller. Hey look! Ninety-six bucks. I don't know why exactly that sum was in there, though I'm guessing it had something to do with The Failed Noble Poker Experiment. Whatever, I cashed it out.

Not 20 minutes later, I was at Home Depot, trolling for a proper edger for the yard. The weed-whacker/trimmer is just too imprecise and hard on the back for that sort of job. I picked out a Black and Decker model and paid for it.

$95.90, to be exact.

Poker may suck and it may hate me, but it does keep paying for stuff.

The coolest thing I've read this week. Congrats to all you Bad-Ass Motherfuckin' Bloggers.

Also in the "Must Read" category is Poker Filter, set up by WPBT Superstar Bill "Billy Legend" Rini, where you can find all things related to this fine game, as well as David Sklansky's pontifications on race and his bludgeoning sex appeal.

News Item: Oakland A's win 18th game out of their last 22, take 2 of 3 from divsion-leading Angels in Anaheim, move into second place, 6.5 games back.

Glad I'm not the only one having a Failed Noble Poker Experiment.

I actually managed to do pretty well at Noble (did an ecasinodeals.com comp, too).

Still haven't worked off my bonus there, and don't know if I will, but I definitely made some money at their NL tables.

Good luck to the A's. Hopefully, the Mets can pull off a comeback, too. They're fewer games back, but have more teams to climb over.
