Plans Change and Robert's Picks

So, I was supposed to go to Mississippi to Gulf Wars with my SCA buddy Rob.  I asked for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday off from work.  I got them.  My regular off days are Tuesday and Wednesday.  I've still got those too.  But guess what?  Can't go to Gulf Wars!  Fuck!  Shit!  Five days off and nothing to do...

But it's okay.  Rob plays softball (isn't that a girls sport, anyway?  Oh, now I see why he plays...) and his first game is Thursday.  So I said fuck it, booked a suite for Wednesday and Thursday night at the SilverStar Resort and Casino in Mississippi.  Road trip baby!  I'm going to play some Poker, maybe a little Blackjack, eat some good food, and maybe consort with some loose women.  And I'll be back Friday for St. Patrick's Day.  I'll probably hit the bars downtown.  If they are doing the Poker Walk I'll do that too.  I don't know what I'm going to do Saturday night, but I'll figure something out.

I'm really looking forward to this.  It's going to be nice to get away from work for so long.  I've really been needing a break and to get away for a while.  This is the perfect opportunity.  I was going to stay at the SilverStar for three days, but the room I wanted was booked for Friday night.  That's cool though.  I'll spend less money if I come home.  Maybe.  Bars can get expensive.  I'll be careful though.

Robert's Picks

Books:  The same (still good)

Movies:  House of A 1000 Corpses (good) and The Devil's Rejects (better)

Music:  The Rolling Stones Forty Licks (excellent)

        The Ramones Loud, Fast (excellent)

I've just got to get out of this funk I keep falling into.  I've been trying to do new things to shake myself out of it, but so far it's a no go.  I'm hoping that will change.  Unfortunately, I'm thinking the only thing that is going to change that is for something to come into my life that completely distracts me from pretty much everything else...and there is no lottery in Alabama.

Awesome, sounds like some amazing fun!

LOL, yeah, no lottery in Alabamy, but I live just a couple of miles from the Tennessee state line, so I can jump over and grab a ticket whenever I like.

I'm just not a player, that's all.

Why couldn't you go to Gulf Wars??  What happened?

The guy I was going to ride down there with had to change his plans because he likes softball more.  He has a game on Thursday.  I probably could have went by myself, but that would have just been to weird for me.
