Went to Galveston the other day to visit the sis and kids on their spring break. I drove across that bridge, looked into the water, and said no thanks. I ended up spending the entire day with the kids in the pool, and didn't even bother to check out the beach. Oh well, soon enough, I'll make it back to a beach. For now I'm going to Japan on Thursday. It feels good to say the day of the week rather than in a month. I have some other interesting stuff going on these days, but I might blog about it later.

So I was thinking about playing some poker for the Japan Trip, and then I remembered the last time I was planning to go to Japan. Right after my first month of playing poker, I had made $4k, and had just moved to Hawaii. I thought that the money was gonna keep coming in, so I started planning a trip to Japan. Well, that month I made a cool $200, and the plans were off.(Oh wait, there's a car. BLOG OFF!)

(. . . Vrooommmmm. . . .)


So, and then there was the time that I was planning on all kinds of cool vacations, and I even went to Maui after I made $6.5k in one month. Well, I got back from Maui and went on a $3k losing streak, and kind of went crazy. (Damn, Another car. BLOG OFF)

(. . . Vrooommmmm. . . .)


And then I went to Vegas once, lost $200 and decided that Vegas sucked ass and drove 1000+ miles back home, and haven't played poker since. So I don't think I'll be goin to Lake Charles after all.

P.S. I wrote that entire post mainly because I wanted to say BLOG OFF, and BLOG ON
So I'm off to Japan in one and a half weeks with my good friends Jco and Ryan. And I have this little voice in my head . . . that's telling me to take what little cash flow I have for this trip, go to Lake Charles, and parlet this trip into a REAL vacation! I think good sense will prevail, but if not, expect an interesting post a week from now.

(Update: Black only moves the king)

It's white's turn. White mates in 5 moves. One of the most unique mates that I've ever seen.
