GENIUS. Sarah can sometimes rub me the wrong way, but I just love this.

Yeah, yeah, I know, this has been out for a while already. I don’t care. It’s awesome.

I’ve been playing the super turbo sit and goes on Full Tilt - you start with 300 chips instead of 1000 or 1500, and the blinds go up every three minutes. They move very very quickly, and it turns into a giant shovefest in pretty much no time flat. I think a year ago I would have hated them, but I’m on a pretty huge kick right now. I want to play a thousand of them and see what my win rate is and how much profit I make (I’m playing at the $7 level right now).
Last night I played a session of them, and at the end, when I only had two left to go, my internet crapped out - I had no control over my actions and would automatically fold every hand. I reset it over and over to no avail, and grumbled and went to sleep, knowing that I had thrown $14 down the toilet.
This morning I got up to check, and lo and behold, I finished third in one of them, and second in the other!
The second place finish was due to this ridonculous hand, as I pushed right before I lost my internet:

Mmmmm, mmmmm! Everybody loves a three outer!
I’ve had aces cracked, I’ve had lower pocket pairs all in preflop hit their set on the flop, turn, and river, I’ve cracked aces, I went runner runner to straighten out over a flopped set, the bad beats fly everywhere! I am at one with them.
I’ll have some poker humor later today, for the three people who might understand it.

H/T DKNY. I’m glad this song still gets lots of attention! I have yet to sing it on Rock Band, but I think I played guitar while someone else was crooning.
There was just a comment spam caught in the queue that struck me as quite hilarious, perhaps because I’m not quite awake yet. It read something to the effect of “Hey, didn’t you ask me for some Teen Titan hentai? Well, here you go!” followed by 20 links to Teen Titan hentai. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I’ve ever watched Teen Titans before, let alone found myself desiring Teen Titan hentai. But it sure was nice of that spambot to offer.

Cheers! to the bestest grumbliest pre-lawyer I know.
PSB and I are off to see August: Osage County tonight. I’m really looking forward to it, it’s supposed to be excellent.
In other news, I have located a white bellied caique breeder in New Jersey - PSB and I will have our birdie soon! Actually, it might be two! We think we may go for it, so they can keep each other company while we are at work or out on the town. I spoke with a colleague today though, who thinks that we should start with one, and add a second if we think the first is lonely or too bored. . . it’s a valid point, but I kind of like the idea of getting two from the same clutch. We have a little time to figure it out.
