Back to eight
I kept asking Clarence why our world seemed to be collapsing and everything seemed so shitty. And he'd say, 'That's the way it goes. But don't forget, it goes the other way, too.' That's the way romance is. Usually that's the way it goes, but every once in a while, it goes the other way, too.
Greetings from Hong Kong Harbor. This is one of my favorite restaurants here in Atlanta and it's known as a place where Chinese restaurant owners in the city come to eat when they want to eat Chinese food. It has a low-key kind of nature and the food is decent.
It also happens to be right next door to the apartment complex where the robbery happened, and I haven't been back this way in a while.
But I guess it's fitting I'm back. This morning, thanks to the shorthanded NL tables in the Crypto system I posted about last, I doubled up on two people and crossed $8,000 for bankroll/winnings. That makes it about a $2,200 month on nothing higher than $1/2 NL and $5/10 limit on occasion. And I haven't even finished the $600 Eurobet bonus yet.
I don't know what it's like where y'all are at, but it's a pretty sunny and warm day here in Atlanta. I ditched my Full Tilt jacket in my car and walked around in a long sleeve T-shirt (Capital City Half Marathon, in Olympia, Wash., a middle-reliever shirt) It's pretty crowded out, though, as Atlanta is hosting both the Peach Bowl and the Sugar Bowl this year because of Hurricane Katrina. Lots of people around and lots of drivers who don't know their way around. If only they played poker.
I made my way out, after the Crypto win, went to repair some glasses that flaked out on me when I was at the Stratosphere. Somehow I bent one of the screws on one side of it. Never seen that before. I thought it was toast, but the lady at LensCrafters just put it back together again, for free.
Then when I drove across the street to the chi-chi Phipps Plaza (mall) I happened to be just in time to get a parking space when tons of people were out driving around. Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket.
I did my business (finally bought a pair of running shoes at NikeTown) and resisted the urge to pick up another $100 tie from Saks, although I did look.
Well, now that I'm full and happy, I'm ready to head home and try out the tables. Won a few bucks playing just now during lunch on Eurobet. Thank you, broadband card!
