Aside from my 360 forgetting how to properly work, I’ve had a pretty good week.
On Friday, Angel and I drove to Berne, IN for my Sister’s wedding. She married a guy named Ricky who is going to become a pastor like his father. He’s such a great guy and I think both him and Jamie made a great decision. I’m sure things will be nothing short of perfect for the two of them for the rest of their lives.
I was able to see a bunch of people I haven’t seen in quite a long time. I was also able to see a good portion of family I don’t see too often since we moved to the Nati.
After a fantastic wedding, we drove to Fort Wayne to crash at my mother’s house. My brother Joe showed me the Halo 3 beta which I was stubborn about getting. Thankfully I didn’t since I’d be completely pissed with my 360 dying. I was actually quite impressed with it and did get to play a bit.
On Saturday we went to see my Sister-in-law and her family followed by a short swim at my Father-in-law’s house. I always say I hate to go swimming, but if I get hot enough, I’ll do it.
We then went to Jimmie’s new apartment to check it out. Pretty cool place with a lot of space. Not as much space as ours though ;). Nonetheless, I’m glad Jim has a place to call his own.
The three of us then headed over to the Mariott right off I-69 where we had a free room courtesy of my step-dad, Michael.
They have a dueling piano bar in the hotel called Rum Runners. It was quite entertaining and certainly an adult oriented environment.
After a couple hours we retired to our room and I watched Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals. It was nice being able to see a finals game since Time Warner Cable in Cincy doesn’t have Versus (Thanks for nothing TW). Probably one of the most entertaining games I’ve seen all year, especially considering I have no rooting interest. Keller probably enjoyed it though. Sens currently trail 2-1 in the series.
On Sunday we went to a movie with our friends Chris and Jamie and saw Shrek 3. Jimmie tagged along as well which was cool. After the movie we had to jet back home so we didn’t get to spend a whole lot of time with everyone. Regardless it was awesome to see those we did. Hopefully everyone else felt the same way.
On Monday I had to head back to work, but I went down to Argosy Casino immediately afterwards to play in a poker tournament. I’ve played in a few before, but today I was on fire. I had some great reads and got quite lucky on hands when I needed it. Of the 54 players that entered, I finished 5th collecting $596 plus 4 bounties for $80 more. I then decided to drop $100 of it on Blackjack and after only 15 minutes managed to double that. I decided to quit while ahead and go home much richer than when I arrived.
Game 4 of the Finals is tonight and I don’t work tomorrow.
Hopefully I get my Xbox back soon.
How’s everyone else’s week going?
