made it all the way to 410th place in the WSOP Main Event. Hey, I sorta made a funny there and I didn't even mean to. Those of you who have been following the action know what I mean. Tuscaloosa Johnny
made it to 768th place. Wow.
The field is down below 100, and as I'm reading about players getting knocked out, I was struck by the fact that you can survive over 8,600 players over like nine days...and not really make a whole lot. Folks in the top 80 "only" come away with around $52K. So if you bought in yourself that's "only" a $42K profit. Which is "nice", but not a "life-changing" "score". God, I love using quotation marks when they aren't needed. Makes me feel that my belabored and obvious conclusions are actually intelligent.
There's so much good stuff to read out there that you need not waste your time here, and that's a good thing because blogging might be light for a few days. Maybe a week. I moved into my apartment today, but I don't have DSL hooked up there yet (I can't move my Verizon over there, instead I must use the complex's own service, which is 3x more expensive). I still have to clean the house, throw lots of stuff away, move other crap to the apartment, so I probably won't have much time to fiddle with the keyboard. Hold back the tears.
I'm sitting in my mostly-empty house, I now have to drive to my apartment to sleep there for the first time. Maybe it's a good thing I step away for a few days, as life is just too surreal right now. I need some perspective. What I really need is a good night's sleep, which I haven't had in, oh, six weeks. Wish me luck.
