Re: Attention Atlanta, Georgia:

d10,

I really wanted ATL to be a big success so it would put LA and other groups on notice. I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you ATLiens failed. Look at the bright side though, you had the best 2p2 Happy Hour on 10/5/07, because the SF one only had one guy show.

Subtle but relevant FYP. Naw, looks like these people had a good time. Other than the one guy banging a Korean chick at some club this one seemed pretty free of memorable moments though. We had LFS and Mat and Banks (), not to mention the rest of the attendees. I just wanted to point out d10's obsession with dissing the LA and Seattle group while making his trip report in the middle of the night...

I don't know anything about the LA/DC/ATL rivalry but everyone at FFK and Chair's place last night was really nice and really cool and I had a lot of fun just hanging out with you guys. Thanks again to the hosts and I hope there's another get together soon.

Re: Attention Atlanta, Georgia:

All I know is that the group of attendees look much more normal and social in ATL than in the LA pictures I saw. You weirdos need to get out more.

Also, AEKD, let's you and me go get women.

Well a few know, but since its "no surprise" why I didnt make it, I guess I will just share my "no surprise" reason publically to get people over it -

At the end of July my mother had a stroke which left her unable to move on an entire side of her body and having little speech outside of a few basic words, so needless to say she needs 24 hr care. As a result of the stroke we found terminal cancer, giving her around 6 months at best. Basically, since she got out of rehab a month ago, I have moved out of my place and moved into her house in order to take care of her. I have been on almost 18 hr shifts with her so naturally that leaves me with zero time to go anywhere at anytime since she cannot be left alone under any circumstances. I have one sibling which helps during the day, takes her to her radiation and other doctor appts, but basically my days consist of getting up between 2pm to 4pm and staying awake until 9am to 10am - once I do get to sleep I get bothered non stop (phone calls, people coming in my room to ask questions, etc) so I cannot remember the last time I slept 5+ hrs straight. Two weeks ago she had a heart attack, which put her back in the hospital for a few days, this has been the only time I have gotten to see friends of mine in I cannot even remember how long, sadly the sleep didnt happen because long hours were spent redoing her place here, running errands since now I had a chance, or at the hospital. I am now back on my whack schedule, and we only have a nurse from 9am to 2pm daily (before we moved her here they had her one 24 hrs a day, which is ridiculous because a "tech" which is the lowest form you can get, is 20$ an hr almost, sure that doesnt sound like a lot, it didnt to us at 1st either, but that adds up to 400$ a day and 12k a month, money we decided to save for when she gets towards the end and needs a more expensive nurse 24/7 (RN, etc).)

Not that any of this is anyones business, but as you can see, it was nearly impossible for me to make it Friday night, even though anything would have been a welcomed break for my sanity. But its a hard decision to make anyway when my mother cries for me or my sister over the nurse. So, even though Im near total exshaustion I just cannot stomach leaving her here entirely alone with a nurse, not only because it upsets her a bit (even with a nurse she knows well), but also noone seems to be able to understand her wants/needs because of her speech except her children, thus you can imagine the position I am in. When she calls out for anyone, she can usually only say my name, so whether its me or someone else she wants she always asks for me, and this confuses most people who arent familiar with the situation, thus instead of trying to get her what she needs they spend pointless time explaining to her where I am (at the store, upstairs, sleeping, doing laundry, etc.) She cannot even ask for her pain medicine when shes in pain, she cannot ask to go to the bathroom, she cannot even ask for a glass of water - when we go to her we have to play "basic" 20 questions "do u want water" "do u need the bathroom" "do u want your medicine" etc etc, things most of the nurses either dont know to do or dont think to do, which confuses, frustrates and frightens my mom when shes with someone shes not familiar with and they dont know what she needs.

So yeah, if you want to be surprised I didnt make it, when I never even said yeah, then be my guest, but dont patronize me when you have no idea why. When I cant even see my own friends, I think its understandable why I dont go out of my way to meet a bunch of people I dont know, most of which are extremely judgmental towards me anyway.... (this doesnt include you FFK, you have always been a sweetheart)


When I do have time to do one of these itll be for someone like FFK, not the rest of the "peach" sucks crowd...

Tuq,

I'm pretty sure she is who she says she is, is the girl we've talked to on vent, etc.

The fishy stuff is more

1- who is playing on her account/where she gets her poker money
2- her whole educational career
3- her perpetual medical ailments

There's some degree of confusion/obfuscation there that leaves you wondering what is up. It may all just be that she's goofy and doesn't communicate well, who knows. She'd probably be pretty interesting to meet regardless of what's going on.
This isnt meant towards you dids, cause you usually defend me, just addressing a few things

1st - I havent said for YEARS Id make these, I knew about maybe 2 or 3 of them, and said id try or think about it. My life for a number of reasons has been very busy (school, traveling almost half the year with part of it outside the US, my health on occasion, football season, other plans, basic life stuff, etc etc.) On top of that, I have never known many of the people well that ask me about a meet or tell me to go, usually its a random PM on here or myspace, and IF i do know who a few of the people are they are people who are rude to me, patronize me, or go outta their way to hound me, thus why would I give up other things in my life to go to one of these things when I usually find out a few days before?

2nd - I am 100% honest about my education, I have even posted my transcript within minutes of being asked, something that cannot be faked?!?! If people want to believe someone that "types" like me cannot obtain the education I have then so be it. I never claimed to be smart, it was a butt load of work for me, and my grades suffered for it in the beginning, but I finished what I have said I finished and was working on what I said I was working on.

3rd - its not medical "ailments", its ONE thing, it has been since I was 21/22. Others who post here that are closer to me, OR know me in person, can attest to this and everything else about me (my education, my situations, who i am, etc.) So I am not worried in the least about proving this to people.

4th - Im not someone who wants pictures of me all over the place, its my personal business. Sorry. Again, people that know me well understand why, so despite what anyone says its not gonna make me post pictures up to be harassed over in whatever shape or form, negative or positive. I am who I am, and I dont care what others think about it. At times Ive been cute and at other times Ive looked like pure butt, but thats for me to enjoy and deal with. Like I have said a million times, im 300lbs and rarely bath....

5th - Sorry its an ego hit for some people, yes it is me playing ranging from 15/30 to 100/200+. I made money in poker in past years, Ive posted long term (over a YEARs worth) graphs that shows Im a very decent winner - to again counter against people that attack me. Its borderline ridiculous the amount of stuff I take the time posting to "prove" things about myself. I gave up doing so about a year ago, and have rarely posted since in comparison. God it must suck that a girl some of you find to be not so bright is playing higher than you - therefore she just ISN'T!! OH MY GOD!! Its NOT her!! So yes, part of my money comes from poker and some of it comes from money I have made/obtained outside of poker, at other times people have taken pieces of me in tournaments and larger games - and NO not because I am a girl, but because they know how I play and can go beyond the "all girls suck at poker" mentality.

If there is anything else people wanna address here about me, go for it....

Re: Attention Atlanta, Georgia:

Peachy,

I'm really sorry to hear about your mother and what you and your family are going through.

But I don't get where you think we were saying that you suck. You were mentioned that you might be coming, a lot of internet doinks got excited, in the ensuing excitement people tried to play it down by bringing into doubt your gender, (completely standard for OOT when a girl is involved), people got more excited and then you didn't show.

Actually since the get-together, the only question has been, "Did Peachy show?". Nobodies ragged on you, just wanted to know if you turned up or not.

And just remember that the amount of attention that your coming generated signifies how much a lot of people would like to meet you. That has to count for something, right?

Sadly, football is like my life And I have only "watched" HALF of one college game (of course a UGA game), and not a single NFL game blah This game is later on, always last, so hopefully by then I can figure something out.


Also I wasnt being bold towards the few people that asked where I was, but I have been attacked bad in the past, also I never said for sure, and especially since I found out a few days before I was pretty sure there was noway I was making it, since obviously if I got to do anything I would go to or watch the UGA game with my friends. I guess you werent around in past years when I was around more, its just natural for me to have my guard up. Sorry.

And thanks ADS, as silly as it sounds, that did mean alot.

Re: Attention Atlanta, Georgia:

Peachy,
I'm sorry for all you are going thru- especially with your mama being sick. That is so tough. You are also doing the correct thing- it's hard but you are taking care of your mom.
It sounds like you are frustrated IRL, like me, so took offense easily at posts- like i did yesterday- and this whole week. What the guys on here do not understand, is being a female in an all guy forum can put you on tilt. SO then you ask why be here? Well, b/c usually its great fun. I had my first forum argument yesterday- which any time before, i would just laugh/joke. But these were personal assaults at ME. I got so mad and now i just have to let that go. A couple of tools on here are so w/e. Try to not take offense at whether you're a girl. I had to 'prove' my gender- and even tho i didn't feel so great, i went to the LA get together- my main motivation was that i'm gonna get ***** if i didn't show up- and i could not have had more fun!!! ...i'm not saying that you coulda made it to this get together in Atl but try to go to the next one.
I hope you're feeling better.

edit: girl, you posted while i was writing this to you- so this isn't a response to your post just now.

hehe i wish that was it!! Im really not too frustrated right now cause I just go day by day! My frustration comes from being attacked for years on the forum!! So I automatically defend myself, and overly so, because of how outrageously some people have come at me. Some of the newer posters wouldnt understands, but Im sure some of the ones that have been around awhile will know what Im talking about


Also, there are a few people here id love to meet that I havent, but I can assure u, I wont go outta my way to be around the people who have come at me time and time again. I dont feel I have to prove myself to anyone on here. There are a handful of people on here that either know me in real life or know me fairly well, so I could care less about spending my time, going out of my way, to meet people that have never been polite. Those I do care about already know who I am and know I am not full of anything, and that is all that matters to me.

Re: Attention Atlanta, Georgia:

It's very unfortunate that any woman that posts on a poker forum will be met with a lot of skepticism. On one hand I can understand being a skeptic because a lot of people have mis-represented themselves as female in the past, but on the other hand how many of us read these forums to meet ladies? I could understand hardcore skepticism if this was a dating site, but this is a poker forum, shouldn't we be judging people based on their ability to be entertaining, interesting, or likeable in their posts?

Anyway I am new to the forums like the people you described that wouldn't understand the scrutiny you have dealt with in the past. I honestly don't think that would be an issue for you though, everyone at the party was extremely nice, it was just a bunch of people hanging out and drinking having a good time from what I saw, and I was there despite the lack of photographical evidence.
