How to Play Cards

When you are playing cards it would be a bad idea to go up against Keith when he is "all in" on the first hand.  I know that it seems unlikely that he would have four eights, but then again, he might.  If he does have four of a kind then you would quickly find yourself on the sidelines if you don't buy in again.
After you have the spent more of your money buying in again, then you may be able to save face by forcing another player, let's say Todd, to lose all his money and then buy in again.  If you have done it then you are obviously pretty slick, but if not, then Keith has done it and you just barely managed to stay out of the whole thing.  if you can, then you should get the lead on Keith so that you are least get all of your money back and make a few dollars. 
Yes, I actually did that.
When the game starts again with more people.  It would be a bad idea to give Myka ten dollars because she will lose it immediately.  When she does at least she will keep you entertained with funny songs and anecdotes while the game continues.
In the second game, the next person out would probably be Gary.  He would buy in twice more even though it is obvious that he doesn't have the knack to say in the game.  If he lost  his chips three times over in the space of the same thirty minutes then he should probably learn his lesson.  He doesn't though, and we have to force him to stop.  He deals badly for most of the rest of the game.
Andrea would be the next to go out.  She would begin to make bad bets because she really wants to go home.  Her bad bets would prove to be profitable at first because she would get lucky, but ultimately, she would lose.  she doesn't care though, she just likes donating money to the other players.
Sadly, Keith would be the next one out of the game.  His girlfriend, who started out as a relatively sweet person would unfortunately, get taken by the hateful lust of competitive play.  It is as if the horns sprout directly from her head, and her claws outstretched as she took her boyfriends last chip.
So the game would be down to me, and the newly born devil.  She and I would have similar hands, but the truth is, that once her boyfriend is out of the room, she is more susceptible bad decision.  I mean she would actually be making a good one with a flush in her last hand, but a flush with an ace high in your hand would quiet the feeling of hope.
No hope.
In the end, I suppose that you would be the winner.

So I saw the Aviator

The absolute best part of the Aviator was Kate Blanchet as Katherine Hepburne.  Decapri-who?   I thought that the movie lacked any sort of struggle and that it was impossible to relate to the main character.  Others thought differently.
F those guys thought, cause the movie had a huge hole in it.  I went to see the movie with one of my friends who is about to go back to Kuwait for a month and hang out with his parents.  I asked him if Kuwait was pretty and he said that it was.  I bet it is.
A rat ran through the subway platform today and I was amazed at how big they are getting.  I bought Godzilla, Destroy all monsters for my nephew.  It's a video game hat he will enjoy if he likes monsters at all.
I didn't really have much to say today, but I thought you deserved some attention.

I am an optimist.

I realized, after a very long talk, that I may have had every chance growing up to be purely pessimistic at this point in my life.   I find that whenever two black people are in a room and say the room is filled with white people, that the two black people will look across the room and give one another a little nod, as if to say, "Hey, if something crazy goes down and all of these white people regress, I got your back."
When I am in the room and all the other people in the room are white, I may seek out the eye of another black person, but when they see me, it is not always that they recognize, that I am also black.  I could be mad.  I could just be upset that even my own people can't recognize the fact that I am black as well, or maybe I could just be happy that when the shit really hits the fan, that I could be safe hanging out in the whites only bathroom.
If you were paying close attention then you may have noticed, that the truth is in there somewhere, and somewhere else there is a joke.  If you think the joke was that I, and people in general, are very conscious of race when they first meet a person and the real truth is that we are evolving as a society so we only see people and not races at all;  then you're the joke.
You're the joke.
I'm not joking.
