I'm thinking of separating this into a poker journal and a non-poker journal, as really, I'm sure that half of you who USED to read this just for the straight-maigrey are probably not that terribly interested in all the poker talk. Thoughts? Be honest :) It's just going to be a pain in the butt to extract everything from here and move it to the new site (probably on blogger so I can actually get stats)
Speaking of poker, though, I went to trump last night and had a FANTASTIC session, despite giving up a $400 pot when I flopped trips and would have turned a boat except the turn came out prematurely but only so I could see. Dammit. Hopefully that $400 is going to come back in karmic form like hitting a bad beat jackpot. A girl can hope, right?
Full tilt is running $200 HORSE tourneys on Christmas and new years with satellites the day before. Drool. I can't make tonight's satellite, because of other commitments, but there's one at 3:30 CST on Christmas that looks doable.
Speaking of poker weirdness, I was racking up to move tables last night as my table was breaking, and was the last one left due to the massive amount of chips, when the dealer said to me, "So, do you know where I could find a nice Christian woman?" My response was, "Well, probably not at a poker room!" he laughed and then I told him actually that I was Christian though there was some debate about the 'good' part. He laughed and said he couldn't believe that, with me being a poker player.

I said, "Hey, I'm not baptist! My priest even knows about my poker playing!"

Still. Weird.
I, for a goofy reason that I will not get into, had my head set on buying a box o' wine when I ran to the store the other day. I found out that I am a total snob and could not bring myself to buy any wine that was 'normal' in a box like 'merlot' or 'cabernet' or whatnot. I was about to give up on this admittedly dumb idea when I saw a box of 'fruity red sangria' and said "oh well I can buy that, it's not REAL wine!"

... let me tell you what, it sure ISN'T real wine. It is crap and tastes like they added corn syrup or something to this. YUK. I couldn't even finish a glass of it, it was that bad, but now I've got 5 liters of this sitting in my fridge and I feel guilty getting rid of it. Thankfully, at a suggestion from a dear friend, cutting it with diet sprite works wonders. So now I've got the equivalent of 15L of wine cooler to get through, since this stuff has to be cut at a 1 part wine to two parts mixer ratio. HAH.
I really really like madonna's new album, especially the last track, Like it or Not. I might post it for download later.
I went to run errands today and do some shopping. Bad idea on Christmas Eve, ugh as traffic was miserable. I stopped by Starbucks for a gingerbread latte and it was PACKED and some crazy lady was freaking out because she couldn't get cash for a return and there was nothing that could be done about it but she just didn't get it.

I then managed to spend $127 on girly lotion and stuff at Bath & Body Works but I've got enough lotion and stuff for 6 months at least and I actually like doing this crazy spending stuff every 6 months or so. I splurged on theFestive Yuletide Trio Holiday Sweets Collection as well. I am such a girl. Also in my bag were,Vanilla Bean Noel Body Cream, Very Merry Cranberry Body Cream, Cherry Blossom Body Cream andCreamy Body Wash as well asCoconut Lime Verbena Creamy Body Wash and Body Cream. Yum.
Speaking of girly stuff, I'm totally addicted to these: Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers. I buy a different color every time I see 'em - I have all of them except champagne and coffee now.

Such. a. girl.
Also after trying to stay loyal to warftp which just wasn't working with my NAT box, I finally went to tucows and got the Cerberus FTP Server - 2.32 Freeware Software. FanFREAKINGtastic. My windows box was up and running as an FTP server in 2.12 minutes and I can now transfer music back and forth between laptop and desktop. HooHAA
And now I think I'm going to wander off and watch 'White Oleander' before I have to run off to church for choir practice. La la.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to you all, and I'm very thankful that I've had the pleasure of knowing all of you in this crazy game of life.

NAT box??? Did you just say NAT box???

I have a NAT box too. :)

Set it up as a SAMBA share and then file xfer gets wicked easy.

Ugh, here's the problem - when I clicked 'windows file and print sharing' i clicked the whatever secure option and now I don't think I can get the laptop to connect to the desktop because it doesn't have whatever goofy key it needs to have, hence the NETBIOS (SAMBA is for linux geeks, I'm just a poser with windows) sharing doesn't work so easy.


And of course i have a NAT box!

Ah, and yeah, FTP for your own transfers is so 1993. :)

Happy belated Christmas and merry new year early.

I think both types of content are goot. But it's a personal choice, obviously. I made a separate blog for poker cause I knew my personal LJ would bore the poker folks, and the poker would bore my personal folks. To each their own!

Nice playing with you in the Omatarding last night btw. Congrats on the marriage, I'm always the last to find out. ;)
