Well Grump said i had a misunderstanding as to what the dr said to me yesterday. Im sitting here now in my room reading the paperwork he gave me (left when i turned a $697 win into only a $403 win--no longer felt like playing). they did a lab test of a Q-tip swab down my throat and it came back as positive for strep. But when i woke up today i felt much better, so i went to the casino. Too much sleep isnt good for u either, it causes headaches. The actual wording on the diagnosis says Strep Pharyngitis
Anyway, im more concerned about my tooth even though yesterday the clinic that charges me $144, ($14 for the amoxicillin, $85 for the drs visit and the remainder for the lab test) said it wasnt connected to my tooth. Because today i feel a bigger size hole like the tooths somewhat fell down slanted or came somewhat out. Hard to describe unless u look at it, and i really dont think anyone who works as a dentist actually reads this blog. i finally got Joel to tell me the name of his dentist and looked up his website.
im supposed to finish ALL the amoxicillin for 10 days at 3 pills a day even if i feel better.
The motel im at (in a horrible area without a shuttle causing me big cab and Uber fees last 2 nights) and ill make sure next time to avoid getting this hotel its ONLY 2 1/2 star hotels im given instead of 3 star. I dont mean horrible in the way of crime, theres NONE out here, its strictly office workers and its right next to the NSA entrance off the highway with big signs saying RESTRICTED, employees only.
i mean horrible in the way of huge transportation costs and no shuttle. its actually a nice hotel considering im getting it for so much less than all their other customers at $63 a night instead of the normal price.
u get a much better chance of not getting the wrong hotel if u dont use the 60% off name ur own price option and instead use the 55% off express deals option on priceline. that way i can make sure to select 2 1/2 star (instead of 2 1/2 star OR HIGHER) and that way ill either get the 2 1/2 star hampton inn or springhill suites both right by the casino with a shuttle. the hotel im at now is 3 stars.
never in my life have i seen a casino so easy to win at. im averaging $200-300 a day in the $1-2 NL and theres no way in hell id ever average that in vegas. all i need is enough money upfront for one of those nice luxury leases on the apts a half mile down the road.
what caused me to have such a high $28 cab fare on the way home is the huge amount of holiday traffic on the roads by the mall, (really nice how the casino is in a mall) i wonder if any other casinos are in a mall in a city i dont know about? and me stopping for food at safeway. getting so old, im starting to really worry about my health, so i bought toothpaste (airport security seized my original tube when i left vegas) a quart of milk to drink, a bag of tiny sized carrots (mom fed me those alot as a kid, along with apples, arent those supposed to be good for teeth?), and potato salad, all which u need to go to a real grocery store to buy and are much healthier foods.
all my uber fares werent near that high. took 3 trips on uber, one black lady, one black guy, and one indian guy. still hesitate using it though due to horror stories online. all of them were between $12 and $16. no bad experiences to speak of yet. i feel 100x more at ease anytime i can see its a woman driver instead of a man.
the hotel that charged me $45 more than Priceline agreed id be charged never answered my email i wrote about 36-48 hours ago and im really going to be pissed if i have to phone. i feel im just out. Maybe i also need to write Priceline too. Priceline gave me the price and it said PAY AT HOTEL. i wish id looked over the statements and pointed it out when i left but i left in the middle of the night without a manager on duty just the night desk clerk.
ill play a few sngs or cash games on Bovada with the $15 i have there before i sleep cause im just not tired yet. But i did feel like id lost back enough money, so i decided to leave the casino. for some reason my wins here are much bigger than in vegas, and it might be due to running good, but i think its just a much smaller percentage of people at the table actually gambling for a living.
