45 and the ups and downs

This is one of those Saturday mornings where the weather is beautiful and there is much to do. Problem is, I just don’t have the energy of motivation to get started. Sounds like a good time to post to the blog. (

The world of Special K is so up and down right now. On the down side, Mr. C continues to have problems. He is very uncomfortable from the exploratory surgery of this past week. Mrs. C and I were up late helping with that situation. Mr. C has taken so much over the past 6 months, and the blows keep coming. There is just no fairness in this situation.

On the up side, I’m working on a very exciting deal that is an offshoot of my work at the WPT Poker Tourney last week. The guys that I am working with are very excited about their project (to be unveiled in December) and seem genuinely excited to have me be a part of it. I could say what all of this is about, but I prefer to wait until all of the details are worked out. I just don’t want to jinx it, but it would be a great part-time job for me since I have the time and I love poker. There is quite an excitement about being involved in the whole poker community. You’ll have to check back in this space for details in the next couple weeks.

Oh yea, yesterday was my 45th birthday. Actually it was the 45th anniversary of my birth since I only really had one physical birth day, but you know what I mean. With all that has been going on, I didn’t even realize that it was my birthday until mid-afternoon. My and the wife went out for a special dinner at a very nice restaurant. We have always had a great experience at this place and last night was a big let-down. The food came way too fast. My steak was way over-done and had to be sent back. The waiter was very aware of the situation, but offered no compensation. I usually expect a free desert or something when they screw up that bad. But then, considering how the rest of the evening went, I guess it wasn’t that bad. I got to spend a pleasant hour and a half with my wife. That can’t be bad.

45 is wise. i'd recommend getting the sahara if you want a free desert, although i've heard good things about the gobi.
