I gotta say…

I don’t know who the heck is still looking at this every day, but, thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my 15-week-jammed-up-school-crazy-going-no-time-to-post-anything heart! Someone is keeping me alive and on the charts and I thank you.

I literally have one more clinical and one more week of class to go this semester. One care plan. One evaluation sheet w/ goals. One Hesi test. One Lab Final and one final Final. Now that I have typed it…it seems like alot. But trust. It is not. Actually it is but that’s just because I have to study everything, all over again, and then answer even MORE questions. But then I’m done. Until January. One post in 15 weeks…not bad.

Here’s a quick update: School. Football. School. Football. I take the kids to bowling. I go to clinicals. I don’t play any games anymore on facebook, but I do check the site. I stay up way too late. And not for good stuff. I rebooted my Ipod but I am not in love with it anymore. I lost all my playlists and a few hundred songs when I re-loaded the back up discs. I haven’t exercised in weeks. Unless you count the few pushups I do every few days to make sure that I still can. Which I do. But I still fit in my small pants so I don’t care too much about the extra flab hanging over the top for now. I can hit the gym in about a week. School is busy but fun this time. Stressful but in a completely different way from last semester. And my license is calling. I can almost hear it now. I haven’t really been drinking either. Not even enough time for that. Or movies. Or pleasure books. Or mags. I have alot of gossip news to catch up on. My mags are from August…I know I should just throw them away…I’ll decide at Christmas about that. Anyway, I am having a drink now and it is good.

The two things for fun that I have still been doing is collecting change off the street (and keeping it in a cup) and playing my pocket poker game (the quest for the royal flush). Don’t I sound like FUN??  I will post the amount for the last few months in a few days maybe.

AND….wait for it……the quest is over!!

I GOT THE ROYAL FLUSH!!

Oh yeah! No kidding. I think it was clubs. I got it awhile ago but saved the pic for just this moment. I am a wild woman! Do not mess with me and my mad fake poker points skillz! The back of the game says I get 2500 points for the royal flush but I got 5000! What?? I know! It was an exciting day! And just when I did not think it could ever happen again….IT DID!!

TWO Royal Flushes! This was a hearts set. Another 5000. Oh yeah…I’m going for the 10,000. I am unstoppable.

I need to go eat dinner and study something. Thanks for hanging again with me thru the weeks of drought! I really do appreciate your time! I’ll have more later! Pictures are below.

The first one. And that was pretty exciting.

Ugh! Blurry! But you can see it! Another 5000.

That was the high score but I am going for more points. I think I am over 7100 now. Yes I know. Sad life. That’s what the vodka is for. See ya!

Oh man, the news just keeps coming…Pocket Poker…defeated!

November 8, 2009 at 12:03 pm (Pictures, Pocket Poker) (, , , )

This is what I used to do before technology…Pocket Poker. If you have read any of the past posts…and really, why wouldn’t you? Is my life not just soooo exciting?? Don’t answer. The goal of the pocket poker is to get good hands (of cards) and get more points, with the ultimate goal of getting a Royal Flush! That would be an Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten…all of the same suit. Well, hold on to your hats folks….because I did it!!

Done and captured forever on camera:

I love how it just says, “WIN” on the top. I also got 3000 points for that little achievement.

No, none of this means anything in the actual world. I didn’t get any real money, or any phone calls from important people…in fact, no one really cared at all, except me. And you, of course, now that you know.

I continued to play off my giant win and I think I am down to 2095 points now, with no hope to ever win that kind of “money” again.

I kicked that game to the curb. The joy and thrill of winning is gone…plus it’s really old and the keys stick terrible. You have to really press on them to make them work and I was worried that it would stop altogether. So I have been searching for a new game. The ones out there are not good. Small. Annoying graphics. Weird digital numbers. Hard to read. But, as if in a cosmic alignment of the poker gods, just as I won the Royal Flush, a new game appeared on the horizon, sent from the heavens to gently land at the SuperTarget, and wait for me to stroll by one Friday night…The new, improved, updated version of my exact same game! And it works like a dream! Everything I wanted and more. It even has a light for playing at night! Same company, same style.  The only difference is regarding the Royal Flush points. The old was 3000, the new is only 2500. Eh…details.

Here’s the picture that you knew would follow. Lights off. Lights on.

So as you can see, you are not really missing much with me being so busy with school. Still in it. Waiting for Christmas. I’ll have almost a month off between semesters. Just think all the random, unimportant *?!@#$%^&*! you’ll get to read about!

Next up, Challenger pics. I’m still seeing them out there driving around. Although by the time I can even get one, everyone will have one and it won’t have the same impact. Although that does save you all from having to look at the website of Challenger pictures I would most likely put up every single day…ha. I joke but…”here’s my car at school, and here’s one at the grocery store, here’s the car at my sister’s, here’s one at the bank…” it would be so sad. But I did get a new phone, so the pictures should be better! Also, I have been seeing alot, ALOT, of the new Camaro’s driving around looking all badass.

I never seem to be ready for the picture taking anymore.

Alright. Breakfast is cooking and I am running out of time before this computer shuts itself off. (I am limiting myself to battery power only.)

Back to the books.
