The Upd(eh)te

Things are looking up. On Friday, Tim and I moved into the new Vancouver-poker-FU DOJ house. It’s not the nicest place we looked at, but it’s relatively cheap (for being furnished) and allows us to get our accounts unlocked sooner rather than later. A new roommate, David Wood (Sandmanness) arrived after a lengthy interrogation at […]

Sometime over the next few days I’ll have an hour to sit down and write about the adventure that has been the last two days, but right now I’ve got a splitting headache and want to keep this entry relatively brief. Cliff Notes:– Made it into Canada– Currently staying at a hotel– Hopefully signing the […]

Looks like I’m forced to write this blog entry in notepad as wi-fi isn’t offered on this flight. How airlines haven’t figured out that internet is something I’d overpay for is completely beyond me. I’ll probably post this entry when I’m chilling in the airport during my two hour layover in Charlotte, North Carolina, but […]

I wish I had some sort of finality to share with you, but that’s not the case. Another busy day in the books and I’m still unsure if I’ll be living here on Sunday. This morning, we signed the lease to our new place, contingent on being able to open bank accounts at a local […]

Wow. This will be a long post. For starters, I’m operating on almost no sleep. I arrived around 10 AM local time and wasn’t able to fall asleep before we had to meet up with the leasing agent. Unfortunately, the agent recused himself from the situation, basically leaving us to fend for ourselves. You see, […]

We’re supposed to be boarding in 10-15 minutes, so this blog entry might be a bit short. I’m currently sitting in the airport waiting for my flight to the Bahamas. Well, Fort Lauderdale and then the Bahamas. Semantics, really. I’m hoping they’ll have Wi-Fi on the plane. No, I’m praying for it. If not, I […]

The Control

On account of ‘Black Friday’ and moving to Sacramento last month, I’ve found myself playing a lot of limit hold’em. A lot. I’m making less per hour grinding live games than I would be online, but the money is decent and I’ve found the work to be mostly variance/stress free. Not today. Today, I dropped […]

The Notice

Less than three weeks after moving in to my new place, I turned in my thirty days notice. In something perhaps only I find amusing, I attached my “New tenant inspection” form to the document — As soon as I finalize the ‘in,’ I’m on my way out. .Pay close attention to the “Reason for […]
