Downtime/a new car

Last night I stupidly fell asleep when I got home and woke up around 10 p.m. Then I couldn't go to bed until 4 a.m. or so.

I didn't play any poker because I was too tired to do so. Instead I did a lot of ironing. Another use of a portable DVD player: I set that thing up right on the ironing board and watched another couple episodes of Ultimate Poker Challenge (2004).

Robert Williamson III (2002 WSOP Pot-limit Omaha champion) was the guest commentator and one of the best pro commentators I've seen after Howard Lederer. Brandi Williams easily could have been a good heir to the color commentator slot previously filled by the WPT's Shana Hiatt and Courtney Friel -- she has much of Hiatt's charm and eye-candy appeal.


Tonight will be the debut of the 4-color Copag deck in the home game, which I might end up being a little late to -- because I'm getting a new car!

I crunched the numbers and found I didn't necessarily need to sacrifice my bankroll. I got a good deal, thanks to a nice ad from a competitor (lower price) today, which the car dealership I'm working with immediately matched. Even so, I know I'm the toaster in the deal.

That's ok, though because I've freerolled a car for eight years. In Chicago my parents offered me their 1996 Dodge Intrepid, a sleek shark of a car that I drove through Caesars Indiana and Casino Aztar in Indiana before I returned it to them after they returned from three years in Thailand.

I'm just ready for a new car. I'm ready for it to be black, the color of my poker cats, even though silver is the safest color out there, according to safety studies.

I can't wait. I think it's a little anti-climactic because today I didn't expect to buy a new car but prepared for it just in case.

And now we're going to see the last card.


  • Congrats on the new car. I'd suggest white and black spots, to honor poker rats, but, you know, black is cool, too.
