Poker's been going well lately - I suck at blogging.
But I fixed a couple leaks and started winning again. Yay manies!
I took a vacation right now, and am about halfway through.
Tuesday, I left home and met up at Thac's place with a few other 2+2ers. We were going to go to Cedar Point, but the weather was shitty, so only a couple people went for like 3 hours.
Thac and Dsmith and I hung around, grinded, then went to eat at Smokey Bones. While we're there, we're watching radar showing these hudge storms coming towards us. There's 2 meeting together, and forming an L, trapping us, and the one just north carries a tornado warning. Hooray!
So we get back, and totally luckbox the storm. There was a small part that was the lesser powerful part of the storm, and we hit that. It was like a 3 mile strip out of a 50 mile long storm. Everyone else gets back, we grind, and pass out.
Thac's internet is confirmed cursed. I don't think any of us made money while there. It sucked pokerwise, but was fun lifewise.
Then I left the next day, drove to Chicago. I get to Commiskey (I know, but I'm old school) at the same time the Sox game is letting out. I get stuck on 94 for about an hour, and have gone less than 5 miles. Finally, I say F this, and get off on the first exit - Rubles and 18th for any Chi-towners. I didn't get the impression it's the best of neighborhoods. So I drive up Halsted, and go to Lincoln, to Wrigleyville, hitting every freaking light. An hour later, I get to my cousin's.
We went to eat with my other cousins and his roommate at this place called D'Agostino's which was pretty good pizza. After a while of drinking and hanging, we all go home. My cousin, his roommate, and I walk back to their place. Along the way, I stop to tie my shoe.
I notice that this guy walking behind us stops when we stop. We continue, and he continues. So I immediately say "hey, what's this store?" and they stop, and the guy goes around us. I said "that dude stopped when we stopped, and started walking again when we walked." Then, he ran up and said "surprise!" to a chick in the group ahead of us.
So while I was right in noticing he was following us, I was wrong with his intention. I was ready to fight! We get back, I drop to go to sleep and think "man, it's got to be 2 a.m.!" I look at my phone and it's 10 p.m.
The next morning, I wake up insanely early, and head out to Minneapolis. I get in, help set up stuff for my cousin's graduation, and we're about to go eat, and bam - another tornado warning! This is after I was at my other cousin's graduation in Indiana 2 weeks ago and there was a tornado warning.
So this month, I've been in 3 states with 3 tornado warnings. I hate the midwest in the summer!
Trip is to be continued tomorrow . . .
Also, just tethered my laptop to my cell.
