Whats wrong with lumber yards? I own three of them

Ok, so sometime about 3am last night, I looked through my calendar and figured out my '08, and rest of '07.

It looks to be a very busy year, with the Tour, and 2 other projects I have going on. So I was particularily interested in the end of this year...

So, I will be heading to Niagra at the end of this month to meet with Beth fischman, This_GUYS sister, who I am working with on some deals for a few of the professional donkeys (since we all are donkeys, that is). I will try to drag this_guy up with me because we will also be meeting this_guy (who still owes me $100 on a prop bet from the last bash at the boathouse :) )...

then its off to Vegas for the blogger thingy with Al again, then hopefully, just maybe, the Aussie tourny down under.

Of course all of this d'pends soley on wether or not the kids blow up, the wife blows up, or the business side of things blow up, all which are entirely capable.

And my version of "blowing up" is completely different from the wifes version.

Blowing up of the kids for me would mean that something extremely bad or good happened in such a way that it would be life changing... her version is someone lost a shoe.

Hopefully a missing ballet slipper won't keep me from meeting with, playing in, and all together being productive in all the poker things I (we) love so much...

On a side note, this_guy put a post up about having no interest of late in playing online poker...

To that I say, it is a job. We all love our work. As much as we say we don't, we do. and if you truly don't, then you are one sad person who must find what to do with your life. (I digress).

and even at our professional jobs, we find spots of disinterest, but we forge ahead. So fire back up your new laptop and get after it. There is too much at stake. the one hand you miss during this lull might be the one you recall 15 years from now when you are at the WSOP at a critical juncture...

hey now! "...one sad person..." because I've lost a little interest in playing online for a short time, and decided to take a break?

no, no, no: "Sad" is the 32 y/o college graduate selling shoes for a living, trying to figure out ways to move up the ladder of the shoe-selling business.

Wait, scratch that....

"Sad" is the guy who got so tongue-tied on a date that his date cracked up laughing, almost spitting her drink everywhere....

Oh, wait...scratch that too...

ah, hell, looks like I'm one sad mo' fo'...

HAHAHAAHAH... I didn't mean you were sad! I meant the guy who is selling accounting software for the last 10 years of his life because it was a paycheck, hates his job, takes it out on his wife and kids, and wishes he had the balls to start up a company that sells fishing supplies because that is his true passion...

Certainly not you! You have chased your dream and will continue to do so...

and the girlfiend spitting her drink everywhere is sooooo hot!
