this, that, the other thing

This:

I've been almost afraid to post anything for fear of jinxing it, but poker has been going very well over the last few days. There's been
  • 15th in the Riverchasers on Thursday. This brings me up from the 30 overall slot to 27th as of this writing. I've been hovering between 12 and 30 for most of the BBT, and I'm going to be making a serious push for points in this last week as I've had my eye on a custom FT jersey since the damn thing began.
  • 3rd in the Friday Night Blogger Donkament. I actually only rebought once in it, and netted about 30 bucks. Which I promptly lost playing drunken low limit cash poker with Joanada and Buddy Dank.
  • 3 of 4 Tier One token wins
  • 3 of 4 $75 token frenzy wins
  • 1 of 2 Tier Three attempts for T$216 (the other was close...I bubbled when my flopped boat lost to rivered quads. No way you can get away from that one)
  • made about $130 playing at the .50/$1 limit holdem cash tables.
Here's hoping that this is a sign of an improved game, and not just the poker gods fucking with me again.


That:

The man had Sunday off, and since it was so pretty out we decided to go for a ride. We meandered along and found ourselves along on the east shore of Lake Simcoe. We stopped at a small community park by the water where I lay under the trees while the man made coffee.


He went and chatted up a fellow vintage bike owner, which gave me the chance to go wading along the beach. My toes were very happy to get out of the boots.


And of course, we took a wrong turn and ended up on a remote gravel road. Every time this happens we are treated to something unusual, and yesterday was no exception. We saw a great blue heron flapping inelegantly across the sky, had to slow to allow a few porcupines to cross the road, and saw this off to one side...and no it's not a dog.



The other thing:

Speaking of bikes, I am a licensed motorcyclist again. Went up to a small town north of here to take the road test as I'd have to wait until August to take it in Toronto. It was a bit of a PITA, as the address had changed and the the guy administering the test showed up almost a half hour late.

It would have been nice to know that I was expected to push my bike as dead weight in a figure 8 as part of the test. I'd have made sure that my after market over-sized tank was not full. I did bomb one section, but since I've yet to run into a situation where it's critical that I slalom and snake around a dozen cones at a painfully slow speed, I'm not terribly concerned about it.

Alaska, here I come.

    Congrats! Those figure 8's are a doozy, I've wondered when to use those on the road as well...

    Can't wait to see the Alaska pictures!

    Hey, you could have 'slalomed and snaked around a dozen [porcupines] at a painfully slow speed' to justify what is undoubtedly an unnecessary portion of the test.

    I was happy to see that I'm not the only one who forgot gas weight when I took my test. Coulda' made it a LOT easier on myself...

    Of course, that was the New Hampshire test, when I was in my thirties. It went a LOT better than my test in Massachusetts at 17, when I missed the testing official's foot by three inches while doing my figure eights...

    Congrats Kat - it's great to have those limitations on when/where you can ride removed!

    Alaska is big-time greatness. Are you guys gonna bike the Dalton Highway? We drove it in a bus from Prudoe Bay to Fairbanks. It was colder than all get-out in Prudoe Bay and it was JULY! It was already warm (70s) by the time we got to Coldfoot, where we spent the night, though.

    We saw lots of motorcycles, so apparently it can be done.

    Oh, my husband would be so jealous. He has been on a quest to see a bear for as long as I've known him. We went in search of one in the mountains of the Carolinas (both of them) yesterday but to no avail. Still no bear. Probably a good thing given our luck of late.
