Ah, Wednesday. The hump day. The middle of the week. The new poker night?
Yep, that's right. Once again I played poker this week. Except last night it was for real money. I got crappy cards. I tried to play my crappy cards...um yeah. I went out quick. DBF finished 4th, just one shy of the money. At least he was close. He did win the first tournament on Tuesday, so we have more poker chips! His case is nicer than the chips that I won the one time I won a tournament over there. So far, he's won a hat, a poker table, and now a set of chips. We'll have a fully furnished game room, that's for sure. It's pretty cool.
Knitting update...I have 10 inches done on the front panel of the new shirt. Nautie is still adorning my desk, half way done. The sock has been abandoned at the house and sleeps in the darkness that is the closet. Poor sock. I solemnly swear that I will finish this shirt, finish Nautie, then finish the blasted pair of socks.
Oh, I got to cut slabs of rock yesterday at work. It's just fun to do, but quite messy. Diamond saws are cool. You won't lose a finger if the rock slips, but it will feel like a rugburn. It cuts rock. It cuts rock, but not your fingers...how cool is that? The project I've been working on at work went public on Monday. I saw it on the evening news. We'll see if we get it or if it will go to another state. Eventually, everyone will get one of these power plants if it works the way everyone thinks it will work. That'll just be cool. Google FutureGen and you can see what all it's about. I think the US Department of Energy has something about it there.
Well, I should get some stuff done. DBF and I are going to lunch today and we're getting new Magic cards in. I can't wait to see what is going on with this new set! Playtest time!
