The Miscellaneous Rantings of Marie-Lizette
It's a Saturday night (oh my, make that midnight on Sunday morning) and my kids have been gone all day with my aunt and cousin. Although they were supposed to just spend a few quality hours together before my cousin goes off to U.C. Davis to study bio-engineering, the children have decided to spend the night at my aunt's house.
What does that mean? It means that I'm free to do whatever I want to do with my Saturday evening. Of course, "free" is a relative word. While I'd like to be at Commerce Casino taking a shot at a tournament or at The Bike grinding it out at the cash tables, I'm a bit strapped for cash at the moment (and it takes money to make money in the industry of poker).
I've been stranded at home all week because my car has been in the shop getting the 60K tune-up, two new tires and related adjustments, as well as several other issues fixed, including the electronic throttle control that went out on me during one of my trips to Vegas this summer. Although I got my car back today, those damn mechanics wouldn't let me take it without first relieving me of the contents of my wallet. They were kind enough to leave me with a handful of poker chips, but funny how chips are are not accepted as legal tender outside of casinos.
Not to worry, I've got some invoices that are out for payment and I'm certain I'll have some pocket change soon, but in the mean time I'm home tapping away at my keyboard writing blogs, organizing the thousands of photos and writing press releases for upcoming events. If you're waiting for your pictures, I'll have them to you next week. If you're waiting to hear from me regarding promoting an event you've contacted me about, I'll get all that squared away next week too. If you're waiting for me to return a phone call or respond to a text message... well, er, um, yeah, I'll get back to you as soon as I can. However, If you're waiting for me to have a bit of free time to have cocktails, that may be a bit farther down the road.
I will, however, be at the Bicycle Casino on 9/11 for the FallenHeroes.org/PokerGives.or g charity poker tournament. After being hold up in my house for so long, I'm looking forward to getting out and seeing some old familiar faces, even if it is work related. See ya there!
Oh! And here are the pics from the last Fallen Heroes USA event that I helped Scott Diamond do in Vegas last weekend:
I'll have my camera at The Bike so bring a smile full of pearly whites and be prepared to say, "Cheese!"
