Up For G-Rob

by G-Rob

Bad news for all you good people who come here for good writing (Otis) or "I love my fiance/wife" paragraphs (Luckbox), everyone else is drifting away. I don't blame the Luckbox as he's just gotten married and he's now moving to a new job in a new state.

Also, I don't think he plays much poker.

Otis, on the other hand, is crippled again by self-loathing and alcoholism. He still posts over at his other blog. The good news is that many of his recent posts are on my new favorite activity: Watching Barack Obama give a speech.

That guy is really, really, good.

Plus, Otis and I are both very busy exchanging IMs like nervous 13 year old girls 2 weeks before the big school dance. Langeradois 3 weeks away! Besides, I feel a little dirty when he uses this space to give Absinthe another bi-coastal hand-job.


It's like Kentucky basketball, we got worse but it's OK because so did the rest of our conference.

To wit, a summary of my fellow bloggers this 2008:


1. I get sick to my stomach
2. I feel my children are above-average
3. I am still sick
4. I still have a variety of luck which sometimes alters the expected results of a poker hand.
5. I threw up recently.

Badblood is a great read for gastroenterologists. He also goes to the gym and lifts weights. This blog don't post much but, good God, at least we aren't puking!


Iggy copied and pasted Otis' latest obsession. On first blink I don't much mind as, again, I find Obama facinating too. But with the change in focus, isn't there a Brandi Hawbaker story that isn't getting told?

Plus, it's been some time since I made a deposit on Party Poker

"Party Poker Bonus Code IGGY for a $100 online poker deposit bonus!"

The above was, in fact, copied and pasted!


If Al ever drinks himself to death in a grotesque "Leaving Las Vegas" fashion, I'm prepared to step in right away. Here's my first post:


"I was prepared to have a nice bacon sandwich and watch a mindless soccer match when my plans fell apart. The weather forecast called for a mild wind from the NW but it was gusting far stronger than that and it was clearly blowing from the SOUTH. ASSHOLE WEATHER PEOPLE!!!

I went to a local bar and had many drinks of alcohol. We had an entertaining time.

I played in an online poker tournament.

Waffles is stupid!

Here are some boobie pics..."


Here's what I don't get, why would you have the online name "Boy Genius" and then NOT allow people to call you "Boy Genius" or by the initials "BG"?

What's the deal?

I don't stop people from calling me "HANDSOMEMWM33"

On the bright side, not-BG was the first person I know who posted that you tube video of Sarah Silverman and Matt Damon, so at least he's trying.


Dear Maigrey,

"20:59 Mmmm homemade cookies and organic milk #" is not a blog post.

The same goes for you Chilly.

I work in super-mega-famousland and have encountered ACTUAL stalkers. I'm not sure why you folks WANT a stalker so badly but if all this twitter update stuff has taught me anything it's that I never want to stalk anyone.

Most people do a lot of really boring stuff most of the time.


Perhaps most important about this blog and, admittedly, those above is that they still exist. Here's a quick list of the blogs in our blogroll that have gone to hell in a handbasket. If CJ still worked here he'd clean them out!

Felicia Lee
The Cards Speak
A Fool and His Money

And so on and so on and so on

Still love y'all. I have the flu. Forgive me my trespasses.

As they say:
