I cannot possibly imagine how it is that I'm awake right now - at 9:30 am - but I am. I forced myself out of bed.

Odd? Oh yes, very odd, but very true. I went to the casino last night. I didn't get home until 4:30 am. I know, I know, very uncharacteristic of me, but - I had to get ahead. I have not been to the casino in a long, long time and the gnawing at me to go was just too much. I left at 5:30 pm, to give you an idea of how long I was there.

I was playing anchor position. It was the only seat available when I sat down at the final table that I was sitting at - which - I was there about 6 hours at that same table. In fact, the entire table sat there for that long and over the course of time, we were all winning. I walked out about $300 richer and never looked back - though the table was not happy about my departure.

However, the reason I stayed so long was because in the first couple of hours, I was DOWN over $200. I wasn't about to leave that place broker than I walked in, and anyway, it was a good time if I do say so myself.

Of course, being out that late? I'll be paying for that one.

Anyway, this isn't really a good time for me to be writing an entry, I'm totally out of it!

Arriving at Galveston beach, the hotel let us in early.  No time to waste, Taylor had her itinerary and we weren't in the hotel 10 minut...
