Lady Luck - All Greased Up

Before I give you a run down of my last twenty four hours let me say who knew so many of you were cous-cous fans?


Last night's featured dinner item was sushi and I'm sorry Lissa, but it's still bait to me. I did try the tilapia but i gotta say it tasted like what I'd imagine the sludge at the bottom of a minnow bucket tastes like. I settled on a bacon cheeseburger, slice of coconut cream pie, and a bag of chips. Being the health conscious fellow I am I did go for the baked Lays.


I also took advantage of the offer for a free health evaluation. They weighed me, took my blood pressure, measured my body fat percentage, (that should be scary when I get my results later tonight). I also did a flexibility test, strength test, and a muscle fatigue test. Later today I have an appointment with a personal trainer who will go over the results and suggest a workout routine. I'm trying but old habits die hard.





I did stay out of the lounge, even though they have Shiner on tap and last night had a special on Mojitos. I must have been a pirate in another life because anything made with rum is fine by me.




I hit the casino down the road and only drank water, despite the fact I played Texas Hold'em for two hour and never won a single hand. that is enough to make anyone want to drink. Lost a bit of cash, but earned a portion back playing slots. I hate slot machine but after the whooping at the poker table I had to try something. think Ill go back tonight and see of lady luck will get off her dead ass and help me out just a bit. Hey, I'm already rated R why censor myself now?


What about the writing? Glad you asked. I have finally settle on a beginning for Plundered Booty the novel and I got about fifteen hundred words down that I actually like. As for Grace, the woman whose life is being ruined by sex, well that pesky fifteen year old girl POV has me struggling again. I wrote about four pages late into the night, but after reading them over by light of day I don't think any of it will survive.


Maybe my luck will be better all the way around tonight, although Oklahoma isn't known for its hospitality when it comes to us Texans.

Oh I almost forgot to mention that on my way back to the hotel from the casino I noticed a sign at a bar for Tuesday night Hot Oil Wrestling. Cash Prizes offered. So if I take another beating at the tables maybe I can enter and raise another stake. Not that I could whip the ladies that enter but I'm pretty sure there would be a lot of people pay money not to see my body glistening with hot oil. Besides, how would I ever get that junk out of my chest hair?

hot oil? as opposed to cold oil? I guess I'd rather have my oil hot, before I roll all around in it.....not naked of course! ;)

minnows always smell so bad....

hot oil's a great hair treatment. It might reduce the split ends in your chest hair. just sayin'...

Hot oil...is not a good look for you. I won some money playing poker for you...then spent it in the mall of the casino. Sorry.
