Poker and Jackassery
Last night was the first official poker night at our house. In honor of this momentous occasion, I've chosen to post a picture of the gambler himself...Kenny Rogers, seen here with another legend....Barry Gibb. Oh Kenny, your beard says you mean busines....but your purple Member's Only jacket says party over here. So, we originally were supposed to have 2 other people coming over. I decided to call a friend and invite them over as well to make it 6. I left a message for them and when they called back, Jackassery insued. Honestly, he who'll shall not be named is a complete Jackass. He calls and wants to know what's going on. I tell him we were supposed to have 4 people, but one person backed out. He then proceeds to tell me that isn't much of a poker tournament. I was pissed. The fucking nerve to call me like your interested and then change your mind just because there aren't enough players for your taste. Honestly, I think he just didn't like the fact that there wasn't that much money to be won. He's sharky like that. We usually do a 20 dollar buy in, with him as the 4th that would mean 80 bucks out there. That's not a bad haul for a friendly game. I then told him that he could invite other people if he wanted to. He then tells me that he was trying to organize a poker game on the same night and nobody was available. Funny, he never called to ask me if I wanted to play. Again, Jackass. So, it was just Jade, a friend of hers, and myself. We had a good time....just drank some beer and played a little cards. We only did 10 dollar buy ins. The girls took me to the cleaners. I was out an hour before we quit. I'm not sure if I even won one hand. Jade ended up the big winner. I was planning on making it a weekly thing, but if Jackass doesn't want to play it will get boring with just 3 people. I think I might join a bowling league instead. We finally have 3 people at work, so I'm not on call near as much. I've got to do something. I'm going stir crazy in my house. There's only so much tv I can take. Alright, enough rambling for now. I ate dinner in between writing these last 2 posts and my brain got sidetracked. P.S. Give me advice on how to put pictures in my posts so that they will be staggered in the text. So far tonight, no luck.
