What? I'm trying...

I'm almost ashamed to admit it, but I've taken up poker. After reading Wil's blog, and being confused by the poker-speak, I registered with to get the lowdown...and started playing (though not with real money). I now understand *most* of the lingo, and have even used it. I'm also starting to understand betting strategy (but just starting). It's fun. I am Beaver1224 (funny that) on PokerStars, if you are at all interested.

Oh, here's something interesting...I'm going to work the phones on the Jerry Lewis Telathon on Labor Day. Between 2:30 and 4:30 PM (EDT), I should be doing my volunteer work for them. I think it'll be fun, and definitely a cool thing. Who knows, they always pan over the volunteers so maybe I'll even be visible. (My big break!)

I think my son may have an eidetic memory. Just a couple days ago, we found a Hot Wheels car we hadn't seen in months. It has "K9" on it and I told him (months ago, remember) that it was a police car with a dog in it. So, we found the car, and he says "My dog car!" I'm very happy about his apparent intelligence, but sometimes it can be a little scary.

See you on the flip side!

Who knew?

Not once in my life have I ever wished I lived closer to LA. Until now.

I was listlessly looking around for something interesting online. So I type "blog" into Google to see what I get. Somewhere on page 2, I see an entry from Wil Wheaton Dot Net (yes, that's the name and the address). He's not who you thought he was. Yes, he starred in Stand By Me and in a few seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation. So, well, I guess he's the individual you thought, but I stand by my statement. Read a few entries, you'll see that I'm right.

Makes me want to meet and hang with this guy.
