My two weeks off is going pretty good. Had a lot of fun, hung out with some friends, finally got Melanie her computer, spent days setting up my new computer, and played some poker at Allen’s new house. Fun times! It was an awesome game, with some really great playing. Too bad I couldn’t catch any cards to save my chips… Until the second game that is. As good as the first game was, the second game was even better, with insane action and a hand that was worthy of TV. Wendy totally spanked Allen with a pocket pair of deuces. The emotions ran the full range on that hand, with Allen showing glee at winning a MAJOR pot with his pocket sixes, followed immediately thereafter by his despair when she flipped over her second 2, showing a full house. Classic. I ended up winning the second game.
I had to be up early for work, so when I got home from Allen’s, instead of messing around on the computer, I decided to go to the washroom and go straight to bed. Walking into the bedroom, I smashed my right foot into the door frame and broke the 4th toe. That made sleeping a bit more difficult. To make things even better, my job involved a lot of walking. Fun Times.
The color isn’t really showing through here as good as it actually is. I should have used natural lighting and disabled the flash to get the full effect. This is the second time that I’ve broken this poor little piggie. Here’s the thing… every other time that I’ve broken toes, there’s been a really good excuse for doing it (and strangely enough, Melanie was involved in one way or the other). This time… I have nothing. The light was on in the bedroom, the floor wasn’t cluttered with clothes, nothing… <sigh>
To add insult to injury, I think I’m coming down with something. Aches and pains (besides the toe) and a head that feels a bit too large. This always happens when I take time off and don’t actually leave the province! I’m hoping I can shake it off before it drags me down. Bah! I don’t need this right now.
Alrighty… I promised that I would post an old blog that I had written somewhere else. Even though nobody reminded me, I still remembered about it. Here’s the thing though… I’ve already posted it here. It’s called "Good Dental Hygiene" if you’d like to re-read it.
