Racquetball loss

I played DD from the office today, he beat me fair and square 3 times. I think if we'd have played a 4th game though, I'd have taken him, the last game was real close and I could tell my losing was making him tired 🙂

Yes, it's definitely Monday. I had a fun weekend though and talked to lots of people that I don't normally get to talk to. Well, fun apart from the shovelling of rocks that made me sore...

Poker night
First watch, 4 bells (10:05 pm)

Poker night is cool. Tonight was poker night. Ergo tonight was cool.

MP (my coworker) and JT (my other coworker) had all the chips toward the end and played an all-in, totally blind hand of Texas holdem. It was crazy cool. JT had a crappy hand and was upset when he showed his cards, but MP's hand was worse! A 10 card would have won the hand for either of them, that's how bad the deal was. Intense though. I think we all learned something about poker tonight.

Lots of rocks
Posted in General
First watch, 4 bells (10:02 pm)

Today I had 3 yards of river rock delivered to do the side of the driveway and house, and when the truck arrived and opened the back up, I looked in and said "That's three yards??". At that point I knew I would need at least that much more to finish the job. Dad came over early and we worked on the side, laid down the last bit of plastic sheeting for a weed barrier, then started spreading the rocks out. It was a lot of work, shovelling those rocks into a wheelbarrow to move them around, but I'm glad its done now. They look really nice, especially when they're wet. I sprayed them with the hose to make sure I liked them when they were wet. 🙂

I talked to MP today, she used to be ML (so it's not my coworker MP), since L asked me to say hi to her. Well, that and I needed to call her and say hi anyway. She lives in Sandpoint with her family. MP is an old friend of LT's, and MP and I went to the same church for a while. I'll have to go up there and visit them (MP says she thinks I'll really get along with her husband because we're both computer nerds - but those weren't her exact words, they are my paraphrasing). She's got a new job, and so does her husband (that's what happens when you move to a new town I guess), and it sounds like they're doing well.

Last night I called LT in Sweden. It's been over a year since I talked to her, time sure flies fast. She sounds like she's doing very well over there and is very happy. She even travels a lot. I love to travel, I'm jealous. About 2 weeks ago I talked to her sister E, I'd never really talked to her before, but she's sure like L. She's a really good kid, she's going to stay with L for a couple months real soon. I've always encouraged and supported L's decision to go over there for school (even when it was iffy early on), and then for work, and I still do. I'm just glad she's still my friend 🙂 When you see someone once every couple years and sometimes don't even email for a couple months, it's usually a bad thing, but talking to L was like we'd just hung out last week.

Well, since I had a "Things that are Not Cool" category, I thought I'd add a "Things that are Cool" one as well.

Today's Cool Thing?
