I took off work yesterday, because I had to work Labor Day and well, that's just not fair. I mean, because I wasn't feeling well. Yeah, that's it. *cough cough* And I took a break from the computer, too.
It's nice to remember there is a world outside the parameters of my flat screen monitor and my bed. And that occasionally, if one doesn't look too closely, it can appear that I have some semblance of a life.
Haven't been around blogs much the past four days, but things should be back to normal soon. And you can look forward to more of my witty, insightful, and/or sensitive comments.
To recap, let's try and hit the high points of the weekend... Alright, well thanks for reading :)
Lots of football was watched this weekend. I went to the Bama game Saturday. Then watched the last part of Texas/Ohio State when I got home. Not sure where Larson Buckyeye Fan has been lately, but I was pulling for OSU.
My Cowboys lost Sunday, and I know more than one of you are happy about that. Then Sunday night was Manning bowl. Which, if I must pick one Manning, I pick Peyton. (Sorry, Heather, but it's true.) Actually, I pick the third brother who doesn't play football. That's kinda like asking who is my favorite Judd. I gotta go with Ashley. She's hawt!
Then there was Monday night football. Which is now on ESPN. And has apparently been divided into two games. Also known as the ESPNization of Monday Night Football. Oh for the glory days of Cosell, Meredith, and Gifford.
Then there was poker. Playing and watching. Playing heads up Monday night, I had a King-four. A King, Queen, and Jack came on the flop. So I went all in. Unfortunately, my opponent had an Ace-ten, and therefore she flopped a straight and immediately called. Fortunately, the turn brought me a third King. And I got a four on the river for a full house! Unfortunately, that would never happen to me at the World Series of Poker.
And when I got home from work today, I had a missed call from the eye place. Yes, I got my new frames. Now, I'm not sure how I feel about them yet, but the girl who worked there and the girl I brought along really liked them. So what does it matter what I think? In poker terms, if you're wondering, that's a pair of Queens beats a King high :)
That's pretty much my weekend. Nothing but football, poker, and... eyeglasses.
"If I'm bettin' on a loser, I'm gonna have the devil to pay. But it's the only game I know to play, it doesn't matter anyway..."
