I honestly don't remember the last time I was this sick for this long in the winter. My stupid bedroom does a very bad job of keeping me warm, despite double blankets (OMG A DOUBLE BLANKET). Maybe I should invest in a snuggy. Though I feel like a semi-grown man home alone in a snuggy is on par with introducing someone to Chris Hansen and him saying "Oh, we've met" for level of creepiness.
Hey Ball is on a roll which is nice. Joe and I love hearing from the listeners so please post in the thread - especially as this weeks "Holiday Cocktail Extravaganza" episode is being prepared. Joe's eggnog sounds terrible. The only cocktail I know how to make is Dewar's Rocks. You put ice in with the Dewar's. My brother is going to make a ton of fancy drinks for a small family party this friday, I'll post some sweet pics and then post some pics of my dog because he is handsome.
I have been passing the sick time with $25 RUSH PLO. Yes. So amazing and so addictive. It's like a video game. So far I am 8 buyins below EV and thrilled. Seriously, if you're going to be 8 buyins below EV, is there a better game (obv smaller stakes but you know what I mean)? I think I played like 3k hands last night, my eyes glazed over and my head throbbing. I look and feel exactly the same now, which is win. PLO is a lot of fun.
Other than that, the holidays are actually pretty nutso for me. So get me some cocktail recipes!
