I've been trying for 2 days to get another entry in, just hasn't happened.
Whatever the case, it's been raining and raining and raining here. Just the kind of downpour I wanted to see happen to really get the ground wet and give my plants a nice, deep watering the kind that only rain can give.  More than 24 hour's worth later, I don't suspect I will have to water my plants for at least a week and a half, maybe longer since the temps have cooled down considerably.

Oh, I know why I haven't written an entry: I get to talking to her and I can't break away from it, even for the 10 or 15 it takes to write a good entry.

Work - abysmal.  Sloooooooww.  We haven't even hit 100k for the month and it's already what, the 23rd of November?  That's crazy!

I have half a thought to hit a casino today.  I still play an online game daily.  The game I am currently playing is the hardest one I have ever encountered.  It regularly deals itself 6 and 7 card 21's.  It gives itself naturals all the freaking time.  I was playing it to rack up cold coins for a trip to Vegas, but I don't really want to go to Vegas anymore. Now I just play it to irritate another person who is on my player's friend's list who is continually trying to get ahead of me.  That last time, she got up 25 levels but I made a total comeback and am a couple levels ahead of her.

Oh, well anyway, I haven't tried in a long time and the time  is right.  Take a hundred bucks in there and see what happens.  I've turned $100 in $2,500 and other varying amounts of winnings. Yes, I have lost too but I get up and leave before it gets too carried away, even if I've only been there 20 minutes.  If  I start really losing, it's just time to go.  That was what happened last time, I got down $200, came back up the $200, got up from that table and left.  I hadn't been there for probably 30 minutes at most.

It would be nice, though, to win a couple hundred and make another trip out west.  Well, at the dates I am looking at, it is costing about $337 with taxes and fees, round trip.  She is having such a hard time with the separation that I am looking at my options.  If I could come up with that money by next week I could spend 4 days out there.  But, I am not going to a casino in desperation, never go in desperation.  This is a "want" thing, not a "I need it to pay bills" thing.  There isn't a single time, I don't believe, that I have gone to the casino and haven't encountered a person that is in desperate straits and is looking to win big to get them out of the hole they are in.

I have yet to see a single one of those people win anything, instead, they always lose.

A trip out there before New Year's is definitely not a must, it would just be nice, that's all.

Stayed up far too late last night. Like 11:30. We were getting into heavy stuff again but at the point the clock he 11:30, I was too tired to go on with it.  That's 2-1/2 to 3 hours past my normal bedtime and now, today, I am paying for it.  It's 9am and I don't feel like doing much of anything, even though I just got done doing all kinds of stuff.  I am supposed to meet with the pastor later on today, though a definitive time hasn't been set, we are meeting for lunch.  All I can say is if my stomach doesn't start feeling better, that encounter is not going to happen.

That's enough.  I have more stuff to get done and would like to have it done before it gets too late in the day.

G'day.

Well I put up a post yesterday concerning the second part of the trip but it ended up in another blogger account I have - and haven't us...
