I seem to remember reading somewhere along the way that you're a 90s underground rock guy. Lace up the day 2 gloves with some Jesus Lizard.

Nice! I was rockin' it to an mp3 shuffle sesh yesterday that included Helios Creed, Flaming Lips, Butthole Surfers, various Steve Albini bands (Big Black, Rapeman, etc.), and more. Not sure what's on tap for tuesday. I'm thinking it might be 70's rock.

So today is mostly a work day, but I took time to share an excellent Thai lunch with a friend, at Thai Cuisine at Nellis and E. Bonanza...cheap and very good. We shared tom kah chicken soup and pad gra prow. Yummy.

Thank you all for the great support and participation...it really makes it more fun. More later.

Btw weaselblob, thanks for the Jesus Lizard link. I BT'd it in my rental car and rocked out. Haven't listened to that in a long time.

Too bad you can't get him to autograph one of his chips and keep it.

It's funny you should say that; someone came up to him after the end of the lasy level and had him autograph some chips. I thought that was an odd thing.

He has some hand histories on his twitter feed.

Was it a board of two pair and three clubs?

Sounds like a fine plan. Maybe some of the details need work, but mostly solid.

Re: dDT's Triumphant Return...or...How to Light 10k on Fire

Today is another work day, so not much to report. I did play a Bally's 1-2 sesh last night and made $800 in a pretty good game.

If I do that again tonight I'll post up.

Re: dDT's Triumphant Return...or...How to Light 10k on Fire

Finished up a surprisingly productive day working, and am now waiting for my second Thai meal in 2 days, this time at Sea in Bally's. I have a sinking feeling that it will not be as good as Thai Cuisine was, but it will make up for it by being thrice the price.

Will play some 1/2 after just to relax. More later.

I had SEA it was decent. Wouldn't want to pay full price though, you should use the groupon.

Re: dDT's Triumphant Return...or...How to Light 10k on Fire

I must be psychic. The tom kha soup was way too creamy and thick, and the flavor was very one-dimensional...just a bowl of cream with chicken in it. Not on the same planet as Thai Cuisine.

Also, at TC the soup was $12 and would have easily fed 5 people if it were being eaten as an appetizer. Here the single person serving is $15 I think.

Then came the pad kee mao...what a turn-around. Easily the best I've ever had. It's very difficult to get the soft texture right without making the whole dish into a pile of mush, and this was perfect. Great flavors, just the right amount of spicy. Excellent.

On to the pokerz.

...and the swag starts to roll in. Ya, I'm a pretty big deal. Ok, not really, but my buddy owns this cool gaming shop in Vegas, and he gave me a hat.

Re: dDT's Triumphant Return...or...How to Light 10k on Fire

Just finished booking a yooooge $150 win at Bally's. I really mean it; you wouldn't believe how big this win was. The biggest.

Ok, so I'm hungry now. No idea what I'm in the mood for...so where should I eat?

And...go.

Never mind...went to Marylin's in the Tuscany. It's a good place to get a decent meal without paying $57 a plate.

Food, sleep, crush. 11am can't come soon enough.
