Lack of internet makes Al a drunk boy 

What a cluster f#$^ of a week so far. I'm finding myself with about 30 minutes worth of internet access a day and that doesn't leave much time for writing or playing. Hopefully that situation gets rectified in one big god damn hurry because it's driving me batshit crazy.

I have managed to take the time to reacquaint myself with the pleasurable feelings of getting fall-down drunk. I may be a semi-pro drunk but Friday's have become my kryptonite. Hot girl + good band + bottomless booze = very hairy drunken mess. The fact that gravity hasn't kicked in yet on one of these trips is just dumb ass luck. Things won't improve this Friday as Phil "The Man who saved Iggy" and his band invade the pub.

Thank god the Phillies play at noon today. I can get my drunk face on early and be home before the sun goes down, or I fall down.


I managed to catch Hellboy2 last evening. My recommendation, wait until it comes out on DVD. It was visually stunning but the storyline and characters seemed to be less important then Guillermo slamming his many creatures down your throat. But the drunken Barry Manilow scene almost makes it worth the price of admission.

Just my two cents.


Cheers to Dr. Pauly and his 5 year anniversary. The Borgata has set him up with a sweet ass package to celebrate for the big event. A $5,000 entry into the Borgata Poker Open Main Event plus a room for the weekend. Hope to see everyone there, it should be a great field.

Great deal and Pauly earned it. Congrats my friend.


Assuming every thing gets ironed out with my internet access, I'll be playing in the Riverchasers game this evening on FTP. If it doesn't work out, I'm already registered and will just donate my buyin.
