    The other important part to wake up is the wallet. ;-) I just discussed with Wild Card and he'll call me tomorrow night with a target date. It will be a Saturday evening, and needs to be before May 19 - 20. The 19th, Sean will graduate from UT and be on his way to The Big Apple, and the 20th will be Holly's wedding shower in Fort Worth. You guys DO see the absolute necessity to let me win, don't you? Huh?

    Later.

    FLASH: SATURDAY, MAY 13, 6:00pm AT HANK'S CAFE AMERICAINE, THERE WILL BE A POKER EVENT!!

    Why 6:00? Because I want time for folks to have fun socializing, talking (about something other than "You're Big Blind this hand"), discussing movies, music, gear, etc. Plus, there just MAY be Hank's fajitas in attendance as well.
    Entre supplied by me, extras by you. Bring your favorite beverage for lubrication.

    Preliminary list of suspects:
    Wild Card
    Crotch Key
    Big Dog
    Bogey

    Where are the tools that used to be here for font size, color, etc?

    THanks, Nils.

    Okay, we're rounding up the suspects:

    Bogey
    Wild Card
    Crotch Key
    Big Dog
    Tubes
    The Kid

    I strongly suspect (there's that word again! Must be my penchant for the Film Noire detective atmosphere...) Colton will want to participate if he's in town.

    Doc & Ice Queen...are you out there?

    How was that a correction or a lecture?

    However I am very sorry for answering your question as it clearly did you no good and thus was a waiste of my time. [​IMG]


    BTW: You have a PM

    Kids, play nice. I'd hate for one of you to do something rash and require my services. Neither of you can afford my rates... particularly after I wipe you out next Saturday. [​IMG]

    Count me in. Mrs. Barrister may be in attendence for at least the pre-game festivities.

    Barrister, we are playing nice. Nils and I jab each other regularly, and I respect the boy - he's our ne plus ultra projector expert. And no, we could NOT afford your rates in this lifetime. ;-)

    Okay, the list of suspects as of today:

    Bogey
    Wild Card
    Crotch Key
    Big Dog
    Tubes
    The Kid
    Colton (wife for fajitas)
    Barrister (wife for fajitas)

    That makes it a full table! Do you want to play on my octagonal table or do you want to play on Big Dog's oval table?

    OOPS! I didn't notice that Hide key in Nils' reply. I've apologized to him in a PM. My bad. I did try the Go Advanced button, and no font tools appeared. I'll try to educate myself (envision a RED FACE inserted here, since I don't know how to do it from the Edit screen). Scuse me whilst I crawl under a rock.

    I'll try to be there, but it won't be until after I am out of work at 7.

    Lee, we're full, but you are welcome to come by in case someone drops out.

    AAMOF, let's get some more attendees and have TWO tables!!
    Doc and Ice Queen, where are you? (bring Scott - we've forgotten what he looks like. Bring that cute nurse, too.)
    Death Wish, we need your wallet! C'mon and get some revenge.
    Stogles, your expertise would be a welcome addition.
    The Kid: can you come up from Houston?

    Well if there is going to be two tables count me in. And you thought you were just going to eat mac and cheese on Sun. Hank. When I'm through with you, you'll take my hard earned and lost cash and buy yourself a steak.

    Change me and the missus from 'yes' to 'maybe.' We may have a house guest that would necessitate a change in plans. Sorry for being flakey and definitely don't hold our spot.

    Well, I think my "notify me when someone posts in this thread" deal must have died w/ the old format. First time I've seen the new layout...can't say I'm a fan.

    Thankfully, though, Tubes gave me a ring to give me a heads up. I will most likely be there w/ bells on if we're still thinking two tables. If we can get ahold of a baby sitter, the real poker player in the Stogel house may come as well (that'd be the missus).

    See you guys on Saturday...

    Updated List of Suspects:

    Bogey
    Wild Card
    Crotch Key
    Big Dog
    Tubes
    The Kid
    Colton (wife for fajitas)
    Death Wish
    Barrister (wife for fajitas)
    Stogels (and maybe the missus)

    Lee

    Wild Card just called from Dallas. He has a product on WOOT today and would like to hear you guys' opinions about it at Saturday's get-together, so please take a look: http://www.woot.com

    Great price as usual for Woot, but it appears the product isn’t impressing most woot shopers judgeing by most of the comments on Woot’s discussion forum.

    Doing some Google searching makes it appear at least that this product doesn't have many happy customers. The average rating on Amazon is only 2 out of 5 stars, and on the Woot discussion forum someone posted a link to a thread with several complaints about the product. [​IMG]

    Still, at that price I'm sure they'll sell a bunch!

    I will be a late arrival. Around 9. I got a crawfish boil that I must make an appearance at from 6 to 8:30.

    Do I have a new nickname you didn't tell me about or did you leave me off the list?
