F Train posted a great recap of our Monday Night Razz Nightmare. He compared all of us to castaways on Gilligan's Island. I'm Ginger. Here's a bit:
The Movie Star (Dr. Pauly) -- I have never, ever seen Pauly in such a foul mood. I've seen him drop a few buy-ins at the Blue Parrot and take it with a smile and a shrug, but last night he looked like he had gone a few weeks without partaking of any mind-altering substances, and everyone knows how happy that makes a true junkie. It got so bad that when Ferrari sucked out a two-outer against him in holdem, Pauly flat out lost it and snapped at him a little bit. Not in a ranting, Hellmuthian kind of way, but the Doctor was not his usual bundle of cheery goodness, and it showed.Yes, he even noticed that I was in rare pissy mood and snapped at Ferrari (who bore the brunt of my ire) when he hit a two outer. This next sentence is for Bob. Razz is like asking your ex-girlfriend's mother to smash your testicles with a sledgehammer.
Congrats to Boy Genius and his latest published article. You can thank me later, dude. I hope this allows you to get some major league poon-tang. You deserve it, pal. Good work. Now get off your ass, Mr. Columnist and send me those short stories for Truckin' that I've been waiting on for weeks!!!
