The Crooked Link

Life of a Low Stakes Gambler...

So I never updated last week's post about how the visit to the casino turned out. I just haven't felt like blogging the past few days. Anyway I got to the casino last Wednesday around 6:00P.M. and played til 11:30P.M. or so.

I dropped one buy-in ($200) within the first hour but reloaded and ran my stack to around $550. Then I played a couple of hands pretty poorly in the last hour and ended up cashing out for $410. A net profit of+ $10 for 5 hours of poker. Not exactly the results I was looking for but I'd rather book a small win than a big loss.

Anyway I left the casino around 11:30 and stupid me didn't realize that the buses don't run that late so I had to walk down Dempster road hoping to flag down a taxi. It was a 30 minute midnight walk down a pretty dark and isolated road with $600 cash in my pocket before a cab finally drove by. NOT A FUN WALK.

In conclusion, I need a car.


So today I'm pretty freaking tired. I'm at work right now pulling a double shift on 3 hours of sleep. I was playing Call of Duty 4 last night on the 360 and finally beat the single player campaign. The story dragged for the first half but it finally picked up last night and I couldn't put the controller down until I finished it. The ending sequence was seriously one of the coolest video game moments I've experienced. Such an awesome game.

Anyway, I ended up going to sleep at 7 A.M.since I thought I didn't have to be in to work today til 4:00 PM.


10:00 A.M. and my mom walks into my room saying my manager called saying I had to come in to work for this other dude who called in sick. She said this to me as I was still half asleep so for a few minutes I contemplated whether I'd just dreamed it, lol. But nope. I called back my manager and sure enough he wanted me in by 11 A.M.


So I've been here since 11 and and don't get off til' 1 AM. And I might have to do it all over again tomorrow. At least I can look forward to a FAT paycheck next week!
