Under the guise of poker night

Poker night. Every clique's got one. I'm assuming that, of course.

It's us guys' own version of male bonding. Our Million man march towards "losing money but its ok as long as I'm not home and hanging out with you guys" kinda feeling.

I've possibly won the big prize only twice ever since we started playing 3 months ago. But who cares right. Its something I always look forward to.

It was Saturday night, but since either one of us managers open Sunday, we recently moved it to a weekday (we never open and the earliest comes in at noon.) We chose Wednesday which is fine.

Today was kinda wierd, I was losing every single hand, but its hard not to ante up and call if you're just betting a nickel right? Wrong! I was down to my last 85 cents. I dug into my wallet and ended up breaking even for the whole night. I thought it was cool.

Anyway, I digress. The next poker night is New Year's eve at our friend's place. He decided to cook for us and celebrate New Year's at their place and play a few games too. But he was really pushing for me to go. Little did I know that he was gonna set me up with one of his wife's friends. Don't get me wrong, I think its cool. Its been a while, I'm on a long streak already so that got me thinking, why not?

So come New Year's eve, aside from losing money I'm hoping I'd be losing my heart too to someone I'll randomly meet.

Cross your fingers, say a prayer, this might end up sweet. But then again...

Nah, screw it.... I'm due....

Quest unfulfilled... yet

Has it been this long since my last post? How many days is it....

There were a few possiblities, a couple of maybes and one sure one, but all went down the proverbial toilet.

How did it come to this? No, its not despair. Its just longing for something that was familiar, you know?

Just saw Eternal sunshine. Great movie! My life in a nutshell. I, too, want that image erased, but in the end, would still long for the familiar. But unlike the movie, this one ends with goodbye.

Still searching....

I gotta see this...

Ok, today is Day 4 of my quest. I didn't intentionally miss yesterday's blog input, I was just too tired. Work is slowly getting to me, but what they hey right?

Anyway, I just found out that Fahrenheit 9/11 is #1 in the box-office this week. I find that unbelievable considering its a documentary. The hype probably got to the people to watch it. I might watch it too, not because everyone else is watching it, because I liked that "Bowling for Columbine" shtick he did before. Very informative. But that's not what I gotta see.

Someone told me there's another Paris Hilton sex tape out there. Now THAT's what I gotta see. Although I saw portions of the first one, there's no telling what's on the second one. Probably more of "sex using night-vision" footage. D'oh!

Oh to be so rich and stupid...

I'll just follow in Affleck's footsteps and enter a poker tournament... might win hundreds of thousands of dollars...

Can you hear me now????

Why is it when people talk on their mobile phones they have to yell or shout thinking that the other person on the line can't hear them?

I work in a small hardware store where employees know the customers and vice versa. There was this guy who was in the check-out line patiently waiting to be called by the "saviors" that is the cashier. In our store, its like gold. Anyway, that's another blog. Finally a cashier was free and called our hero, but alas, was interrupted by a guy who was asking for a price check. But as fate decides, his mobile rings and he starts shouting at his mobile. The guy, thinking he was the reason why this mobile-dude was shouting, started to yell back at mobile-dude. That's when I started to step-in and start to mediate between the two. A simple misunderstanding which could have led to a big incident, but was simmered down by myself and my trusty Office manager. Nice.

I was commended by a guy before when we were in line in a bank. He said he appreciated the fact that I kept my tone of voice low when I answered my mobile. "You wouldn't believe how many obnoxious people out there seem to think that they're the only persons present when they pick up their cellphone".

Anyway, today is Day 2 of my quest. Not really much of a quest today as I wasn't really looking. Maybe that's when I should pay the most attention to... when I'm not really looking.

And finally its done...

You ever danced with the devil on a pale moonlight? So I was watching Batman while doing this, you got me. Always been a fan of bloggin'. Never thought I'd be a part of it, but what the hey right. Might as well have a small part in eating a little space on the internet.

Today also happens to be, as fate may decide, the birthday of my ex-fiance. I have no idea how she's doing, nor do I want to know (hope she's doing well with her choice).

My quest to find someone starts today too. Aside from daily musings, today is day 1 of finding someone to replace her in my heart. Replace is such a strong word but fitting as I continually think about it. Then again no one truly can replace your first love, can they?

Anyway, this blog is a start, a new beginning, and the start of my quest...

Let the beatings begin
