Daddy Does the Math

The road to Melbourne now runs through Hilljack.

Congrats to Daddy, who topped his runner-up finish in last week's MATH tourney with a victory in last night's 6-handed, turbo Push-o-Rama and is now headed to the TOC.

His tourney game is sick. Ask him.

I had to unregister late because of necessary AJ time. I hate playing when he's around anyway, but have loosened that tenet at times during the BBTwo because of the awesome potential for overseas travel and my masochistic tendencies. I've said it before and I'll say it again: If I raise, just call. Whatever you have. It'll be good by the river. Especially if I check-raise you on the flop. Your bottom pair, three-kicker will improve. Ask Jordan.

Tasks accomplished, AJ and I did pull up the tourney in the late stages to rail the final two tables. My son, bless his gambler's heart, exclaimed at one point, "SnailTrax is playing some Big Stack Poker!" Maybe some day he'll fondly recall the night I let him stay up past his bedtime to see Daddy take it down.

I will be enjoying some Hot Mookie Action tomorrow night and if my sister manages not to kill me with her maiden attempt at Thanksgiving turkey, I might make Riverchasers as well.

Additionally, I'm almost done with my "Write Your Way In" entry. Look for that next Monday. Prepare to be moved. Keep some Kleenex handly.

****************************

NaNo is looking grim. Not even halfway to the 50K, a fact mostly attributed to me deciding, around Word #10K, that I don't like the story in the first person and should change it to the third person. I've since been writing it that way, but I feel like the foundation I'd laid is incompatible and that scenes need to be shifted and blahblahblahnobodycares.

****************************

Been a bit of a roller coaster lately in Speaker Land (The Crappiest Place on Earth!) and the holidays promise more upheaval what with the custody issues: my first Christmas without AJ and X and I fighting over which one of us gets to buy him Guitar Hero II.

But enough of that...it's almost Vegas Time! Be sure to hit up Pauly for the "How To" list. I never tire of reading that.

I will miss the Thursday night klatch at the Geisha Bar. Disappointing, but I'll be in early on Friday. Don't expect anyone to be awake when I arrive (GCox excepted), but I was mulling hitting a Friday afternoon crapshoot tourney, maybe Caesar's at noon. Drop a comment if you're interested. Reminds me of the time I organized a dozen or so bloggers to play a Friday afternoon tourney at Aladdin and when I was waiting for my taxi outside the IP, a motley crew of bloggers (redundant) quite literally spilled out of one right in front of me. They were in the death throes of an all-nighter, but happy as clams. Smelled a bit like clams, too. It's those random events that generally provide the hilarity. Whatever your expectations, don't let them obscure the possibilites. Schedule light. Be available for arbitrary silliness.

And don't even think about fucking Tilt Texting/Calling me on Thursday night from the IP. My phone will be off. Fuckers.

Hope you keep toiling over NaNo, mate. One or two good days can have the finish line in sight...

If you play a tourney Fri, can I come watch for a last minute crash course on tourney playing from my Poker Sensai?!?!?!

Define early on Friday morning. If it is before 8, you can expect some of us to still be going.

I'm still looking into getting my flight moved to the earliest possible flight on Friday morning rather than the last flight out that night. Won't know until next week if I can swing it, but if I do I might be in. I think I'm 24 for 24 winning strip tourneys.

I land at McCarren at 10:15, stb. So, 11:30 or so @ Caesar's.

Mr. Speaker,

I am guilty as charged and will try my best to live up to previous billing, but I am getting old you know?

If Stb can hang, I will do my best to hang as well and have a Chivas at hand for your arrival.

I might be in for Caesar's. Can't remember when my flight Friday morning is.

I do custody day in and day out, if that is all you are fighting over you are way ahead of the game

Schwartzenegger insists the victims of the 2007 Southern California firestorm temporarily residing at Jack Murphy Stadium are happy.
First he calls Tonight Show host Jay Leno an "idiot". Then he drops this bomb.
If it were Gray Davis the gods would have their media attack him mercilessly for these mistakes. Together they may be enough to cost any other politician his career. But not Arnold Schwartzenegger.
They say he makes comments like these all the time, clues which are all buried. And it's because they have BIG plans for him::::He is a tool who will be used to accomplish historical evil for the gods.

They say there is a strange sense of "unease" at the State Capital, like he doesn't belong there. And he doesn't. He is not American. Sadly this is an issue that is too readily discounted:::::
He is not from the United States. His loyalties lie with a country that was the enemy of the United States a mere 65 years ago.
Just as we witnessed with Clinton in 1992 expect blacks to register and vote en masse for Schwartzenegger as well, a clue and a red flag.

Just as we haven't seen any more of that "Everybody is happy." idiocy from the Preditor so do we no longer hear anything of the possibility a firefighter started one if not more of these SoCal fires, buried forever.
Weight training (promoted in every prison system in the country), promotion of pharmeceuticals (steroids), desensitizing "guy flicks" all prove the name "Preditor" is warranted.
Less than 24 hours passed after a traffic accident on I-5 before Schwartzenegger declared a state of emergency, but it took over 2 full days before he did the same for the San Francisco Bay envionmental disaster incident. The gods are offering a clue.


The gods love reverse positioning, and this Austrian genocide issue is an OUTSTANDING example:::
There is symbolism between the two:::Hitler was an Austian-born leader of a foreign nation.
It appears as if Hitler is a monster. When Schwartzenegger does his thing he will appear as a hero, an enforcer of decency. Quite the opposite is true, ironically.
Monsters like Al Capone, violent gangsters from the 20s and 30s thought they were going up. Instead they were routed into the Nazi death camps::::This Austrian genocide event disposed of these monsters.
Schwartzenegger's genocide event will dispose of society's VICTIMS, people who are the way they are (abusive, abrasive, violent, criminal) BECAUSE of their disfavor.
People will say the Italians were pushed into it too, but I'd like to remind you black evidence is contradictory (crack, AIDS, etc). Italian evidence REINFORCES corruption (1906, ). Based on these clues it is safe to say the Italians are more disfavored than Africans.
Ironically, Hiter is the enforcer of decency. Schwartzenegger is the monster. But the movies already prove Schwartzenegger is a promoter of indencency, so when his genocide event happens there will be no secrets.

This exposure from me can change their script. Or, more appropriately said, alter the Manifest Destiny's senarios to fall in line with the god's script.
That means Schwartzenegger was never going to be used. But I think the evidence we have suggests he in fact IS the one foreshadowed with the Hitler figure, his genocide event foreshadowed with the Holocaust.
And, ironically, blacks will show up at the polls to vote for their own deaths.

There is one geographic clue I have not addressed in years:::Uranus, a planet tilted 90 degrees on its axis. I have stated in years past that I think this is a clue offered by the gods suggesting the fate of planet Earth, that tectonic plate subduction would be the method of disposal:::Earth’s axis will shift breaking continental plates free and initiating mass subduction.
Undesirables will either perish in the government marijuana erradication program "gone awry" or be the recipients of reparations granted by the US government because of it.
I believe the New Testiment battle of the Anti-Christ and the Second Coming of Christ will ocurr in subsequent years SPECIFICALLY because these people will be distracted with the money during the event.
When the Earth's axis shifts people will be cast into outer space with gold cards in hand.
I think this was foreshadowed on an episode of the Simpsons where Homer and Bart are on the disfavored ship and eject, only to experience a sense of euphoria, expand then explode in the vacuum of space.

Vienna was the center of the music world for a reason.
Any middle age person today remembers the excitement surrounding classical music in the mid-20th century.
Classical music was "in play". Expect the same "magic" was employed back then as well.
Motzart's ugly for a reason. Similarly, Schwartzenegger's appearance is suspect as well.
