SOLD! (For Realz)

I'm back in the Cities (again...) playing B's poker roll, trying to make up the $5 I lost him last week. I'm up $3 now, so we'll see...

So, it's sold. I pulled the trigger, we took the hit, and we're still up an assload of money, so all is good in the hood. Ding dong, the crack house is gone. We close one month from today.

The funny part is, after we signed and faxed back the paperwork on Saturday morning, we decided to head to an open house in Horicon.

Smurfette fell in love. The house is perfect, and everything we've been looking for. Three bedrooms up, 2 baths, big back yard, 3 season porch, HUGE living room, formal dining room, walk-in closets in each bedroom, and an unfinished (and future) poker room in the attic. It's perfect.

We make an offer this week. Huzzah!

In other news, this apparently is bad for you. Who knew??

POKER UPDATE: Back to even....

The Andy Griffith lifestyle suits me, I think. Hell, my red-headed boy looks like Opie, so even the analogy fits well. Just need me a fishin' pole and a 10 inch wang.

We went to the Marsh Days Parade today, and had a blast. The kids went nuts, collected candy thrown from floats, received overpriced balloons from grandma, and went Bizzaro Superman when the camels and horses came by. It was awesome to see people lining the streets anticipating a little town parade. After it was all said and done, I heard that people had put lawn chairs out the night before the parade to claim their spots. I almost cried... Seriously. And NOBODY better call me a pussy for it. I'm so excited, all six of my nipples are tingling.

POKER UPDATE: Back to being up about $3, maybe a little more.

Ok, as you've probably figured out, I've had a couple beers and am posting out of my ass. Who cares?? Life's good, house is sold, found a house, I just bought a scooter, and I've got a great ass.

Still, need a job tho. Ah, yesssss.

Stupid reality...

POKER UPDATE: Took a HUGE hit, and now am back to owing B $5...stupid two pair losing to a set....

Oh, and BadgerBucco? Had a KEEEEELER time at the engagement party last night. So good, in fact, that I drank that Smirnoff Ice shit before we left, because the beer was almost gone. Thanks for everything. I'm proud to be your best man.

Bring on the hookers!!!

Great Job P, glad to hear this tale because it keeps me optimistic as I get ready for the same bullshit...

I grew up just north of Montana in a town just like that one, where we all remembered The Big Flood of '78, and kids jockeyed for positions in the annual parades. Corny to same maybe, but idyllic nonetheless.

So now I know where to send thousands of magazine subscriptions with the "bill me later" box checked.

I hope you like Butt Pirates, Pillow Biters International, Jet, and Maxim.

And oh yeah...


I kid, I kid. Congrats on the new house!
