I’ll Name Her Photoshop

And God looked down and saw that J needed to be amused on a Friday morning.  And it was so.  Ladies and Gentlemen, the Zedonk.

Snapple Cap

September 13, 2010

Yep, it’s time for another Snapple Cap.  This time I got one pleasantly relevant.

“Real Fact” #711

“To estimate the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit, count the number of cricket chirps in 15 seconds then add 37.”

Apparently there’s actually something to this.  A quick google search will give you plenty of other sites about the same concept. 

And if you think about how much I hate hot weather this might explain a few things about me…

A.C. (Not Slater, the Other One)

September 1, 2010

This past weekend brought Roomie, Mrs. Roomie and myself to Atlantic City.  I went for three specific reasons and a few vague ones just to keep it interesting.  1) We had floor seats to an Aerosmith concert 2) To have my first real poker experience at a casino and 3) To get the hell out of the city for while.  The vague reasons included things like riding in a car, laughing at drunk people, and jumping on hotel beds.

All went much better than I anticipated.  I’ve talked on here about Aerosmith plenty, so I’ll not get into that again.  Sammy Hagar opened with an awesome set.  I’ve never seen him live and he was just as hyper as you’d expect.  Aerosmith did great as always and our seats were really good.  Highlight of the show: Joe Perry using his guitar strap as a whip and beating the strings on a guitar he had propped on an amp. 

I played Hold’em at Caesar’s Palace Saturday afternoon.  I bought in for $180 and it was very educational.  I’m a mediocre player at best, so I considered myself paying for the experience and assumed it was gone as soon as I sat down.  I cashed out with $215 after about 2 hours.  Nothing worth getting excited about, but hey, it’s 35 more dollars than I had when I walked in.  I was up $150 at one point, but I made a stupid call which knocked me down pretty good.  I started to fizzle after that so I got out while I was still ahead.  Props to Roomie who walked away with over $200!

I haven’t been to Vegas yet, but I think I understand why A.C. got the nickname “Dirty Vegas”.  I’m sure A.C. is a lot smaller and it’s also attached to a pretty rough ghetto a few blocks away from the Boardwalk.  Couldn’t even tell from our hotel though. Compared to the city this was a paradise.  Also, I think of any place where I can see the ocean as “fancy”.

A great time was had by all.  I’m looking forward to another trip back soon for some more poker.  I was too distracted this time with the concert and feeling a little touristy.  I think I’ll play better when poker is my main reason for going.

Y’all stay tuned!  I’m up to something ridiculous…
