tummy full, nice evening

January 17, 2004

Mmmmmmmm…tummy full, nice evening, surfing the web from bed. Life is good!

(by the way, if you want to track the evolution of my future “movable type” based blog, you can at /blog/index.html I have much to learn, but I’m plodding through little by little.

Tonight, Mom, John, Thor and I went to the Borgata. I played some roulette and lost. Played some slots and lost. If I won, I wanted the money to go toward a new PDA to replace my late m515. But t’was not to be. We got there around 7:45ish, and ate at the Metropolitan…their diner-type restaurant. I played my lucky number (23) at the roulette table, but it didn’t come out at all. One lady had stacks of chips and was putting chips on almost every available position on the table. I didn’t understand her strategy, since whenever she did win, she took back far fewer chips than she bet.

My betting technique for a $10. minimum table: Put a chip on 23, and one chip on each of the four ‘edges’ around 23. Put one on 20, one on 26, one on 19, one on 17, one on 14, and occasionally one on 21. Cross fingers.

It turns out Damon (my coworker, not to be confused with the millions of other Damons out there) and his friends Mike and Mark were there as well. Thor and I met up with them briefly at the bar. It was nice to put faces with the voices I’ve heard on the phone.

We got home about a half-hour ago.

Work went well today. I already have a pile of resumes an inch thick for the new web job. Unfortunately, most of them are looking for way too much money. Of course once they know they have a chance of being mentioned in my blog, they’ll be willing to work for cheap!

And now, the Friday Five! Yes, technically it’s Saturday, but Thor always says that the night belongs to the day that it follows. So there!

1. What does it say in the signature line of your emails?
At work, it’s my full name, title, web address, and a promo for the newest feature that we have online.

2. Did you have a senior quote in your high school yearbook? What was it? If you haven’t graduated yet, what would you like your quote to be?
“If you don’t have a sense of humor, you’re better off dead!” by Roger Rabbit. While I agree w/the sentiment, I wish I had chosen something pithier.

3. If you had vanity plates on your car, what would they read? If you already have them, what do they say?
I used to want LuvRPH (Thor’s a pharmacist, remember!) but now I think ‘webdiva’ or ‘ldygpsy’ would be cool!

4. Have you received any gifts with messages engraved upon them? What did the inscription say?
None that I remember.

5. What would you like your epitaph to be?
“She tried.” Isn’t that guilt-inducing?
