Tuesday Blues Braindump

Well this will be short and sweet since work is sucking today. I had a great weekend in Maine. Did a lot of fishing, tubing, swimming, and jetskiing. The kids loved it and I think we will be making another trip up during August sometime. It is a long drive but worth it.

We decided to drive home Sunday night so that the kids could sleep on the way and 3 hours into the 4 hour drive I got a call on my cell from Kat. She was calling from Vegas with a "nannynannybooboo" call to rub it in that I was missing the action. Thanks Kat, I appreciated that. I was already jealous enough and after that call, some of the various posts I have read, and some of the pictures I have seen, I won't be able to miss December.

I kinda played in the Hoy last night and got beat down. I have been playing and running bad lately. I will miss the WWdN tonight because I am going out for a couple after work with some friends. If I get home early enough I will be on the girly chat so maybe I will catch up with you.

I noticed quite a few of you have signed up through me at Pokersavvy. Thanks! Have you completed the Mansion requirements yet? Was it super easy like I promised? I hope so.

My son's room got finished and the carpet was installed yesterday. The furniture comes today. It looks great and I will probably post a couple pictures when I have time.

Lastly if this ridonkulous post, I think I mentioned something about the sprint triathalon I was going to do up in Maine. Well, it came and went. My sister did it but my wife and I bailed. Boy did we feel like slugs while my sister was working her ass off! So with that, I am signing up today for one in Hyannis, on Cape Cod, for September 9th. It is even wimpier than the one in Maine was but it is a start. 1/4 mile swim, 10 mile bike, and 3.5 mile run. Make sure you harrass me if I don't mention it for long stretches because sometimes I need the motivation.

That's it. I should have warned it would be a ramble. Have a good one.

Still waiting to find out if I cleared the Mansion requirements. I wagered the $50, but still no news...

Welcome back. Don't worry, you're not the only one jealous about missing the fun in Vegas. Maybe next year.

Hearing about Maine brings up some great childhood memories. How the hell did I swim in 58 degree water anyway. Hope you ate your fill of lob-stah.

Dude, wtf are you thinking about this triathlon? I'd bag that shit so quick.

Missed you bro, definitely in December.

mansion bonus received (minus a $1.10 fee, but that's fine with me!). i took the 90, and my original 50, but i have a little left over there to gamble with some day. tried their freeroll on sunday but i got antsy and busted out pretty early. winner take all event - first place was a $7k prize package getting you out to vegas for some tv show.

we hit maine last year with the kids, stayed on old orchard beach, and had a blast (my oldest is a fish). had to pass this year due to funds but would like to get back again.

i think an old friend of mine did the hyannis triathalon a few years back. remember how slug-like you felt not doing this one, and get ready for the cape cod one!!
