on being late, poker and tummy rumblings ...

It has been pointed out to me that I'm late on my posting today. I guess that much is evident, for those of you who come here at a regular time to check out the Diatribe.

I just got caught up a bit with things and didn't get around to posting when I did have the chance.

Got off work, did laundry, came home for a little bit, then back to work to finish things up, then to the weekly poker game, which I haven't been to in two weeks. I got there late and had to sit in on the small table, the waiting-for-a-spot-to-open-on-the-big-table table. Luckily, I went on a bit of a rush and knocked out five of the six people on the small table and a spot eventually opened up for me on the big table.

Ran my initial $80 up to about $250, but some bad beats took it down for me a bit, but then I hit a couple of pots and ended up leaving with about $100 more than when I started. Not bad for about two hours of work, huh?

Basically, it means I'll probably buy a nice, thick steak to cook at home for dinner tomorrow. Or splurge on too much Chinese food (to make sure I have leftovers ... heh).

Writing about food only serves to remind me that I'm hungry. I had a small Greek salad around 6 p.m. and it was good enough for a while, but now I starvin' like Marvin for a Cool J song. Which wouldn't be so bad, but I'm not sure what I'm hungry for. Maybe I'll just nuke some hot dogs. Or make some soup. Hmm ...

Stay tuned for a later post where DZER will reveal what he ate!

Heh.

One of my favorite things about eating out is take home for later left overs. Especially chinese or italian. Okay, now I'm hungry. Thanks alot Dzer. :)

I've been so freaking busy - I keep forgetting to eat. Then with all the studio time - I think I lost 5 pounds. Now however - I want chinese food. I wonder why???

kristen: me too!

suze: sounds like a plan ... you wanna nibble on my moo goo gai pan?

ell: I'm more partial to orange chicken, spicy beef, sweet and sour pork, wonton soup, General Chan's chicken and salt-and-pepper ribs ... mmm ...

kathi: isn't that the best? the leftovers later that night or the next day? and sorry ... but not really ... heh

snavy: never forget to eat! and I dunno why you want chinese food ... heh

sass: ah, it was OK ... shoulda been more conservative once I was up by $170 or so ... and that sounds like a good dinner ... especially the ice cream part ;)
