Maybe turning 40 isn’t so bad. . .

Filed under: PolenBabble — Twin C @ 7:45 am

I’ve got a whole lot lined up for next week when I finally turn 40. . . starting with PSB’s first present to me: on Monday I am going to get an hour long poker lesson.

FROM ANNIE DUKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m so incredibly excited. I don’t even know what I want to talk to her about! I’m a relatively solid ABC player with a few tricks up my sleeve, but I’ve got a ton of leaks too. She has a new poker book that came out that I want to try and get and read beforehand (I’m sure I could polish it off in a weekend and retain at least some of it, and could take notes on questions I might have). . . just to be able to sit and talk poker with her though is pretty amazing.

On Wednesday she’s telling a story at The Moth, and I had already planned on fawning over her there. . . I’ll just have to try not to look like too much of a donkey during the lesson.

Thursday night I’m meeting up with some friends for some karaoke, and Friday night the Polenboys are heading over to Peter Luger’s for some good old fashioned meat rage. Afterwards there is a late night burlesque show called “Nerdlesque”, which is going to feature striptease with video game themes. AWESOME!!!!

And then I’ll be 40. Somehow I don’t think I’m going to feel any different. Still like a 15 year old kid who wants to play games and laugh and have fun all the time, but knows there are responsibilities too. Not so bad, really.
