10.09.2016 In a little hilltop village, they gambled for my clothes
Hey Now! Sore throat. Cough. Yuck. 6.5 a.m. Must. Gambol.
Buffalo Grand sucks. Hundys. This trip anyway. But what's this? A yet unexplored Buffalo game to suck up more???
1024 non-paying lines
I try the DBDW slants across from the buffet. My notes show 5OAK Q's and a WRF. Didn't bother to photograph. Sweet Ti texts so I ferry up Coffee Elizabeth. Jittery Vegas Ethyl is substituting for Reneee. But it's just not the same. Upstairs, Breakfast of Champions.
Heard from back home.
Hurricane Matty left our part of VA. unscathed. We lost power for a grand total
of 1 hour. Other than a few limbs down in the yard, everything is just lovely as
I would say. And I also must say that it's quite a load off of my mind. Onward
and downward, I stop by Invited Guests and pick up Sweet Ti's 250. Macy's card
from Derrick. Cool. Then it's over to the Wally shorty to sew up a TV for the
Skins game. Jessee hooks me right up. Then he tells me that it's a good thing
that I did, because Rick the Jerk is coming on shift at 10 a.m. and refuses to
change the stations. Dave Jewel from the Boards stopped by. We met him a few
trips back. He and his wife have a condo here. Sweet Ti joins us. So does Jim
from Raleigh. Jim, this is Dave. Dave, meet
Mumbles Jim. For the
next 3 hours, Jim provides us with weather updates from Raleigh. Which actually
was nice, because our daughter Feather and her hubby live there, and are
currently powerless. Jim's backyard is a lake. At least today. Meanwhile, the
Skins are doing pretty good. I'm not doing bad.
Sweet Ti takes to wandering around so I play for both of us. Dave splits, the Skins win, and Sweet Ti returns. Hungry. Let's do lunch.
Peking Dumplings, Chicken Corn Soup, House Lo Mein, and BBQ Pork with Oysters in a Hot Pot.
First I have to say that I'm not really a big Asian food fan. Sweet Ti would have probably given it 4 Sporks. It was decent. Used the 25. food comp leftover from the other day, charged the rest to the room. We head aloft with our obligatory leftovers. Always with Asian. I reload and head back to my task while Sweet Ti chills. I throw some Keller Williams Stage on my Ippy. Loose Deuces is my game of choice. I'm jammin' out and punchin' buttons. I finally realize that the Asian chick sitting next to me is trying to get my attention. I pull off my headphones so that I can hear her. She turns out to be today's local, Katie. She wants me to hold her machine for her while she prints out a coupon for today's gift- an Orleans hoodie. No problem. When she comes back, she shows me that she actually got 2 coupons. That's strange. We play a bit more. She retired from the Riviera after dealing there for- get this- 30 years. So did here husband, who passed away a couple of years ago. Man did she have some great stories. She's a pistol too! As we play we are giving each other a ration of shit. Katie wasn't going to play much, but has been here 3 hours already. I have put points on both cards already and kiosk our coupons out. We get 1 each. She goes to the BConned Club and picks up her hoodies. An extra large and a large. Her uncle and cousin are flying in from South Korea next week. The jackets are gonna be gifts. I take a piddle break and on my way back am stopped at the Crawfish Bar by a dude who introduces himself as Snidley from the VMB. We corresponded on the boards before the trip. I met his wife too. We talked for a bit, I told him about the hoodie giveaway. Then I needed to get back to my machine. I even left my headphones on the bar, and Snidley thoughtfully brought them back. Then it was time for me to hit the BConned Club. First thing I notice is this sign.
So they won't let me pick up Sweet Ti's gift. And they only have small and medium left. Bummer. I grab a medium. Back at the Loose Deuces, Sweet Ti stops by and I give her the coupon and she meets Katie. She BConned her jacket, and took both of them back upstairs. Katie and I play on, neither of us ever hit Quad Deuces, She splits, and I am feeling really rough at this point. We actually had MyVegas tickets to KA this evening for the 7 p.m. show, but blew it off. Upstairs we watched some TV and call it a night. Frilling infirmities...
TOTALS: RB- 5900 pts. Sweet Ti- 1k points.
