Three Beautiful Things 12/27/09: Winning in Worley, Meatloaf Dinner, Poker on ESPN

  1. Ed swung by Mom's about eight and we headed to the Cd'A Casino in Worley and after a five hour rollercoaster ride of wins and losses, I came out ahead!
  2. I got just what I requested for my birthday dinner: meatloaf, baked potatoes, canned green beans with bacon, and cola with lime. Mom added cole slaw and IEGirl made a pumpkin roll for dessert. Birthday dinner was relaxing and satisfying.
  3. I started my 56th birthday with a little gambling and I ended with a little gambling, sort of . . . ESPN2 broadcast the final nine players battling for the title "Champion of Champions". Twenty past winners of the WSOP main event gathered to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the World Series of Poker and played for a big cup, a 1969 red Corvette Sting Ray, and a ton of prestige. I enjoy watching these blue chip players and really enjoy watching them make the same mistakes a poker klutz like me makes!
