I Love Thanksgiving

It is Friday, the day after thanksgiving, and I am wondering what I had to be thankful for other than my family and a few random other things.

1) I am thankful for the friends who showed up late because they were having a fight. The wife said she couldn’t come because she couldn’t be around him and so he stayed home. Their kids threatened to stay home because their dad stayed home. What a wonderful start to the day.

2) I am thankful for my sister-in-law who drank a bottle of wine by her self and alienating the rest of the people at our gathering by talking non-stop about things that mean nothing to anyone. Her incessant babble and total disregard for everyone else was a joy to be around.

3) I am thankful for my two nephews who broke things, threw things and caused havoc while their mother tried to drink her self into a stupor. I feel sorry for these kids as they have no parental guidance but are raised by T.V. and X-BOX.

4) I am truly thankful for my sister and brother-in-law who put up with this crap and even moved name tags so that they wouldn’t have to sit next to the drunkard. Of course she saw that her name was moved and moved it back because she wanted to be able to annoy people during the meal.

5) I am thankful for my dad who sat silently watching football as all of this took place around him.

6) I am thankful for my wife who is a wonderful person and should not be subjected to inconsiderate family members.

7) I am thankful for my children who tried to keep things under control in their own way.

When everyone finally left, other than our friends, I needed an escape. I was on Thanksgiving tilt and found a spot in the front of the computer and played some random internet games to recharge my mood. I eventually fired up Full Tilt to see if there where any other losers like me looking to play poker on a holiday.

There were many so I fired up a $3 re-buy because I needed to see if I could continue the bankroll slide I’ve been going through over the last week or so. It didn’t start off well with a myriad of below average cards and a table of idiots who thought A8 was the nuts. I eventually got to the first break with a slightly below average chip stack after taking the add-on. Fast forward a while and I get into the money with an ok stack but in survival mode. A big hand later and I’m on the final table and eventually get knocked in 5th place.

I also bubbled another tourney when I could have folded to the cash but needed chips to get deep.

So have a great Friday if you’re not working or it sucks to be you if you are.
