October 25, 2008

- Great to see that the Warriors won the Naismith Classic last week.
- Played in a tournament at Brantford on Thursday and got rivered twice at the final table, once by the WPT donkey I referenced in my last post...but then went back on Friday and had a record-setting session. Still can't believe the unbelieveable run of cards I went on.

- Lucas has been sick and off of school all week. Hopefully he'll be feeling better tomorrow so that he can do his Timbits hockey at the Rangers game.
- I took Faye to the casino last night and she had fun playing blackjack. It was a good 'mother-son' trip.
- Naismith Classic starts today. Looking forward to the games, and going back to UW for the weekend.
- Just saw that a BAD player I have played with at Brantford just won the WPT niagara event for over $1 million. Wow.

- Lucas came down with a fever this weekend. Poor little guy. He was fine at the Rangers game on Friday night, and was excited that we saw two hat tricks in the game. Then, Kelly took him to Wonderland on Saturday and he started feeling sick. He's had a fever on and off for 2 days now.
- Thanksgiving at Mom's was last night and everyone was there, including David back home from Ottawa, and Francesco home from Montreal. I'm looking forward to spending a weekend in Montreal with him in November.
- Naismith Classic is next week at UW. It will be nice to be able to watch the games instead of announce them. I'll have to miss the Saturday afternoon games since Lucas is doing Timbits hockey between periods at the Rangers game that afternoon.
- At our monthly KWPT league tournament on Saturday, I came 2nd to go into first place overall. It got down to Tony and I heads-up and we played for 56 hands. He outplayed me even though I had a big chip lead. He deserved to win.
- Speaking of poker, the WSOP coverage on TV has been great, seeing Teach and Damien play against the pros!
- The CSI premiere was a lot more emotional than I expected...what a tear-jerker.

October 6, 2008

- Lucas and I had a great day yesterday. We went for a walk down by the river, and he was excited to be catching some grasshoppers along the way and seeing how long they would stay on his hand before jumping off. Then we saw some big furry caterpillars crossing the road in the parking lot down by the river and he wanted to hold them too. Plus we saw a snake by the side of the road. It was an adventurous trip. We were throwing some rocks into the river and he wanted to see if I could throw one across the river, so I tried. I got it about 3/4 of the way across, so he thought that was pretty cool and wanted me to try to get it all the way, so I tried a few more times, and after 5-6 tries, I finally got one across...but...bad idea. I could hardly feel my arm for about 10 minutes...and then when I could, all I could feel was pain! Serves me right, but he loved it, so it was worth it. We were out for about 2 hours, it was a great afternoon.
- Amazing Race was interesting last night, with perhaps the biggest collection of dumb mistakes at once.

- I watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall last night. It was pretty funny, and very very appropriate. There was a scene in there when she tries to get him back, and it's really clear that he doesn't want her at all. Made me laugh.
- The movie ended just in time for me to watch Kimbo Slice get beaten in 14 seconds. Wow.
- Right after that, SNL was on and Tina Fey was back doing Sarah Palin again. The opening scene of the Vice Presidential debate may have been the funniest thing I've seen since the Cowbell skit.

October 4, 2008

- Lucas and I were out shopping last night and he was so excited that we found a Joker figure from the Dark Knight movie. We had been looking everywhere for one for him.
- One of the fun things we've been doing is watching Kitchener Rangers games together on TV on Friday nights. It's quickly becoming one of my new favourite things.
- New season of WNP (Wednesday Night Poker) started this week, and I won the first event. Good start to the year!
- Phil and Colin are back from South Africa, so we're already working on next year's Waterloo Arts Festival. Lots to do between now and June.
- Lucas and I are going to a basketball game this afternoon, Waterloo vs. Guelph. I don't know who to cheer for...
- (I made it 6 points down before talking about a TV show) I enjoyed Survivor on Thursday. Lots of good candidates to win. My choice if we would have had the bet again would have been Corinne. Heather and I used to have a bet each time Survivor started. We would each pick a player, and whoever lasted longer won an item of clothing from the other. She still owes me 3 items that she never paid up on...I doubt I'll be getting those. :)
- Haven't watched Pushing Daises yet, but I heard it was great.
