4 Funniest TV Edits




A New Record

March 2009 has handily become my best month ever in poker; beating out a long standing record from January 2006. Now normally I would list a bunch of bullets of good things going on in my life and say how regular exercise and artistic expressions created this synergy that put me above the rim. But honestly it was over 76% luck. I hate my job I got lucky.

Color Up

The gf and I did some drive by prunings amongst the nicest spring blossoms around Decatur this evening. It makes for quite a lovely centerpiece in the room.

Coffee Shop

So get this... the power went out this afternoon in my building for an hour or so; nearly forced out of the house by lack of internet, I ventured across the street with the gf to a local coffee shop to enjoy the good weather. Whilst sitting outside some rando came up to me and asked if I was Joel. I confirmed his suspicion and he said that he just wanted to say he was a big fan of my inflatable art. It was a pretty awesome moment and for the first time in my life I almost felt like a real artist.

Tough Life Decisions

As some of you may know, my girlfriend of over one year is moving to Chicago in June for a 5 year teaching program. The million dollar question is whether I should move or not. I've sought advice from many and the pros and cons lay out as follows:

Pros
  • Exciting cool new city
  • I get to continue having a loving relationship with one of the most incredible woman I've ever met
Cons
  • I hate moving (I'd have to either sell my condo or try and rent it out or something - neither appeal to a lazy man)
  • A large amount of my closest friends and family are here (including three good friends moving here all within this month - two just a block away)
  • The weather in Atlanta is much nicer than Chicago; I hate the cold

How It Goes

If you asked me how poker was going two months ago I would have painted you a pretty picture. I was off to my best start ever on the year and I felt on top of my game. I was on pace to crush like never before. As I neared my career high water mark things began to crumble.

If you asked me how poker was going two weeks ago I would have painted you one ugly picture. After taking a failed shot on a fish at 25/50nl hu deep stacked and another gamble against an excellent regular at 100/200nl short stacked I had managed to blow through over half my roll. In such a deep hole for the year, I would have set an over/under of late August to get even on the year, but who would of guessed that lightening can strike twice...The last two weeks of poker are like nothing I've ever seen before. I have crushed so hard and gotten so lucky that no two weeks in the past 5 years can even compare. I am now even on the year and it is time to shave off my short lived playoff beard. If you ask me, I guess that's just how it goes.

Art Project

The elephant finally met his demise this weekend and in honor of the rare flurries Atlanta enjoyed last week I made a little snowman:
It might be a tad tricky to see, but he does have little twigs for arms:

Low on Bullets


  • the playoff beard is one good session away from disappearing
  • my bedtime is much like a random number generator
  • the inflatable elephant is still flailing about outside
  • playing fetch with a dog is underrated
  • tomorrow is my birthday

Life

I have been in Chicago the past few days. My girlfriend had to take a test up there for a teaching program that she is more than likely going to enroll in to get her masters. Ultimately she will be there for several years and we both agree a long distance relationship isn't all that feasible. At the moment I can't really see myself moving and it feels really weird having a seemingly healthy relationship that has an expiration date on it... best enjoyed before mid June. While in Chicago we dined at a restaurant called Alinea. It was a world class experience. It was a prix fixe 25 course meal with highlights that include: hot potato cold potato black truffle soup that required a pin to be pulled to drop in an melt the cube of butter and Parmesan and be shot like a raw oyster, the most tender wagyu steak that was poached and accompanied by powdered steak sauce and a potato side that was ten times creamier than anything I've ever tried in my life all served with a dry ice aroma of freshly grilled food softly flowing out of a centerpiece vase, and a sweet potato bourbon and brown sugar concoction served at the bottom of a cinnamon stick that was burning like an insent and alongside a strip of bacon dressed with butterscotch, apple and thyme alongside a passion fruit, allspice and soy ice cream bite. Every dish had a gentle culinary genius about it. And the experience really went beyond pleasing the taste buds. They managed to simultaneously please the eye, olfactory, touch, and challenge your imagination. After the nearly five hour dining experience we asked our servers how many calories they thought we had just consumed, they laughed at our guess of 3-4k, went back and asked the chefs, and informed us of their estimate of ~10k calories.

On a lighter note it appears the chainsaw situation is slowly being cleared up here: http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/29/news-views-gossip/who-came-up-name-chainsaw-allen-kessler-425484/
