Charity and the Tube Sock Boogie 

Things are coming along nicely and I'll be in Vegas safe and sound Thursday afternoon assuming the TSA doesn't get a micro-bug up their ass. I'll be camped out in seat 1a for the non-stop flight into town where I plan to fire off the opening salvo of a mega-bender the moment I see the first bar (outside the airport). Thursday night will be my time to rip it apart since I'll have to be relatively good Friday evening so I can take care of uniting Gracie and Sweet Sweet Pablo Saturday afternoon.

Taking one for the team.

As you'll see below, my plans for Friday afternoon are set in stone. I'll be playing in Poker Jingle at Hard Rock, the charity poker tournament I mentioned earlier. I know several bloggers are already signed up for the tournament including Gracie, Pablo and ye ol' Garthmeister. Who else is going to join us?

I challenge any other bloggers who will be in town Friday afternoon to join me at the Hard Rock for some karma-loving charity poker. Thank god there is a cocktail hour beforehand, proper lubrication has the necessary affect to push me through the tournament.


For my two cents, Jordan is dead on. But I'm still playing because of the number of friends I have employed there.


I knew sooner or later Dr. Pauly and Otis would be caught up in some sort of revolution with the number of third world countries they are visiting. Just never thought it would be Mexico. At a resort.

The Federales shutdown the latest LAPT event and riots ensue.

Just for JDub and the craziness of last Thursday at the pub. Another 5 pictures and this time it's JDub's choice. Girls in tube socks. Pretty weak collection but not much time to really research it.

Somebody needs to find me a better image of Erin Kelly in Loving Annabelle.
This one sucks, there has to be better out there.


There's going to be a lull in poker blog posting arounds the internets while everyone over-indulges in Las Vegas. So go check out Pauly's latest Christmas issue of Truckin'.

Truckin' - November 2008, Vol. 7, Issue 12

1. The Last Christmas by Paul McGuire
I adore the way you look. But your mother disapproves. It's that black shoe polish you have on your lips. When I was your age, the only people who dressed like that were the whores who stood on corners down in the Mission.... More

2. I Remember Christmas by May B. Yesno
I looked down at my cup, lifted a hand to the waitress for another coffee and started looking around the joint, noting the yellow brown walls a glass could stick to, if you placed a glass on it, and listened to the Christmas music being piped in... More

3. American Half-Breed by David Peterson
It is bitter cold and everywhere around me is ice and dirty snow. At my side is one of my prized possessions, an American Standard Fender Precision Bass Guitar. I don't want to do what I'm about to do, but I've run out of options. I open the pawn shop door and feel a blast of heat and the smell of tobacco smoke and desperation... More

4. Of All The Bars In NYC by Betty Underground
You know when you see someone and maybe it is the job you do or the frequency you travel to the same places, but you sort of recognize them and for some reason you can't put them in the context of where you are right then... More

5. Corner of Hopelessness by Paul McGuire
I have this odd fear that I'm going to get shanked by a gangbanger with a spork or mugged by one of the homeless people who live behind the dumpster and feast on half-eaten Jumbo Jacks and pieces of raggedly yellow leaves that they pass off as lettuce... More

No luck so far 

Thanks to everyone for the helpful hints yesterday but I guess I forgot to point one thing out. If you name it, I've tried it. One major hiccup in getting a new ID, especially in a hurry, is that fact that I haven't seen my social security card in decades. Every option so far requires that little piece of paper.

Things are moving along though, looking better to make my flight in just over a week.


There is a charity game for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society tonight on FTP hosted by Erick Lindgren in memory of Mindy Trinidad. Tons of people on hand so come on out if you have the chance.

Tournament: Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
When: Wednesday, December 3rd at 19:00ET
Game: NLHE
Buyin: $5+$5
Password: charity


Seems PokerStars is going to give this blogger championship another shot with even more events. If they could get the tournaments down under 50,000 players it could be interesting.

I have registered to play in the PokerStars World Blogger Championship of Online Poker!

The WBCOOP is an online Poker tournament open to all Bloggers.

Registration code: 107674


Finally, after posting the pics of the TV girls yesterday I realized that 4 of those 5 girls pack heat. That got me to thinking about women with weapons and I found quite a collection from various movies. It didn't take me long to find these. Maybe I'll take requests for themes.

Keira Knightley in Domino

Milla Jovovich in Ultraviolet

Never a dull moment 

Good god damn if things are going completely bizerker around ol' CantHang land. No real excuse for the lack of posting but just about every word I have time to get down on the internet has gone towards my glorious corporate gig at FTP. The other time is spent handling various issues that tend to pop up in the world of the uber-degen trying to slide by without any real responsibilities.

Too much booze is always the standard but most of the fun I've tended to keep to myself rather then spread amongst my few remaining readers. There have been some crazy good times and I'm building up to the bender in Vegas.

But I've also had other things going on. There is officially no longer a MrsCantHang as the papers have been signed, I'm now on my own to run around and make a much more complete ass out of myself. I'm searching the world for a new place to live and taking suggestions. Of the top 100 places in consideration, Las Vegas is number 99 right above Salt Lake City. I've discussed this with several of my friends who have helped point in the right direction.

I'll have more to say on the subject once I get some distance but no need to worry about me.

Another major hiccup occurred just after I booked my trip for Vegas. Most everyone knows that I haven't had a drivers license in nearly a decade (never let it be said that I am not a socially responsible alcoholic) and my only form of photo ID was the passport I carried at all times. You just never know when an impromptu trip to Europe might pop up.

Less than two weeks before I board the plane and there goes my passport through the washing machine. It is now a pile of paper pulp that resembles a fist-sized spit ball. I now have a week to find some replacement or else I'll spend that weekend doing dial-a-shots instead of running around like a madmen.

Good times. These are just a few of my favorite things.

So I'm spending all my free time searching for a place to live, trying to obtain valid travel documents, planning a trip to Vegas, getting daily posts up on FTP and somewhere in the middle finding time to further pollute my liver. If anyone needs a Vegas vacation, I think I'm pretty well up there.


Assuming Bacchus himself decides to push through my travel dilemma, I found the perfect function for Friday afternoon during the blogger drunkfest. Jen Newell has a post up on PokerWorks about a charity poker game on the afternoon of December 12th at the Hard Rock Casino benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in memory of Mindy Trinidad. $200+$30 buyin and a chance to play with the big guns. Cocktails at 2pm, tournament at 3pm.

I know a number of bloggers plan to play in the tournament and I'll definitely be there.

It's been a long time since I've posted a list of cuties. Today will be completely safe for work but I'll do better next time. Here's the top 5 girls I enjoy watching on TV. Just my quick determination, it may require further examination with a cross-post between myself and the BoyGenius. It's been quite awhile since we ran one of those.

5. Sarah Shahi - Currently playing recovering dope fiend on Life and apparently went topless in The L-Word but I've never seen it or caught a clip. New to me and just something about her. Bonus pic.

4. Olivia Wilde - Plays "13" on House, a dying bi-sexual with a penchant for irresponsible sex. More importantly she dropped top at the end of Alpha Dog (NSFW animated gif). She's not bad but I wish they would bring back more Jennifer Morrison.

3. Summer Glau - went from geek-boy fan favorite killer on Firefly to geek-boy fan favorite killer machine in Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles.

2. Yvonne Strahovski - Aussie chick that ran around in a hot little hotdog costume on Chuck and looks great holding a gun.

1. Brea Grant - Mookie picked Hayden Panettiere and Sean picked Kristen Bell from Heroes. I'm going with the new girl Brea Grant. Poor Julius can't stand Heroes but I watch every time she's on screen.

Not nearly a compressive list but it's the best I could come up with while scanning my DVR and various brilliant minds via IM. Feel free to drop a comment with who's better and I'll see what I can do.
