the weekend

i went out to brigantine which is in atlantic city, but it's the pretty suburban part with cleaner beaches and less fat trashy people. a bloody mary obsessed friend bought all the ingredients to a BYOB place where we looked like amateur bartenders at our table. we asked for some worchestershire sauce and she brought over an entire coffee cup full, see below.


we did a lot of laying out at the beach sipping coronas. i got a ton of reading done (i was literally two weeks behind in my new yorkers). the first night we went to buddakan at ceasar's the first night. spent too much money. i won $25 on a nickel slot machine and then proceeded to lose it all (plus the $10 i stuck into the machine to start with). the next night we grilled, made kabobs (which my family would pronounce kay-bobs) and grilled corn on the cob, burgers, salads, etc.



we also bought a watermelon and proceeded to pour two full bottles of vodka into it for dessert. we got drunk on wine and watermelon and played poker all night. i enjoyed kicking the asses of the three men there who assumed that women don't know anything about card games. little did they know i have a card game whiz for a grandmother who had us playing poker 18 ways (midnight baseball anyone?), bridge, hearts and spades from the age of 8. i won $35 but felt bad taking money from people so refused to accept the pot. i'm either too nice or just stupid. sometimes i can't decide.

7 people who played with me:

I'm kind of surprised by you refusing to accept the pot. I thought you were a lawyer, and that all lawyers were cold-hearted ambulance chasers.

maybe i'm just averse to gambling...

also, i'd like to pat myself on the back for how nice it feels to not have to use word verification here. you should all thank me for that more often...

1) Those kay-bobs are making me hungry.

B) You are totally talking about my word verification, aren't you? That's it, I am going to get rid of it right now.

Wow...

Our "friendly" poker games have lasted until 4AM because neither side would give an inch, and we know each other way to well.

And don't count out the girls we play with. They will hold their own against us without fail.
