Good evening faithful readers. Today is May 18th, today is my birthday. Many things have happened on May 18th. It is sometimes Victoria Day, Mt. St. Helens erupted on it, and it is the birthday of
Our last pope(JP II)
Reggie Jackson
El Guapo
Chow Yun-Fat
Tina Fey
Jessica Cutler, an old friend from elementary school (*not safe for work)(same year as me too)
Stephen Geller
Me !

I was born on this day in 1978, which makes me 30 and officially over the hill. To celebrate this momentous occasion, a trip was made to Atlantic city, featuring Dan, Yoni, Steve(Geller) and myself. We decided to stay at the Borgata, which was very expensive but sounded worth it. The drive down took about 8 hours which sucked, but we all met up and silliness ensued.

So what happened this weekend? Nothing too crazy to be honest, but we had a lot of fun. We played some table games, I showed my skills at poker, and I was briefly stricken with the disease known as lobstermania(I caught it from Yoni). I also have a bad beat story from the WSOP satellite I played in. I won't bore you with it here but I'll tell anyone who asks.

Our room in the Borgata was fairly disappointing, but the hotel itself was an experience. It has restaurants, clubs, stores, and lots and lots of gambling. I didn't leave the hotel from Friday when we got there til Sunday when we checked out, I didn't need to. Sunday we had brunch at a local place called The Pirate's Den, where Yoni gave them an Oreo cake to serve us, complete with trick candles.

Now I'm home again, we'll see how long I can stretch this thing out.
