well its really great to finally be where i needed to end up, and i seriously hope all will go well tomorrow in the dmv renewing the ID. then ill be free to relocate somewhere more permanently, wherever this will end up. the reason for needing the same address for awhile is due to the fact ill never wish to deal with this expense again to renew ID. plus louisiana will have much stricter ID after october 2016.
so ill need either the counselor report of birth abroad for $50, or the N-600 form for $600. hopefully the first record will be able to be found. its possible i can order it with expedited shipping for an extra fee. or the 2nd one. plus i should get my canadian birth certificate too and a ss card.
after paying all these fees, im down to $18,912. not too shabby, but not so great either, considering what i had. some losses too for quite a few days in a row. plus ill need to buy more clothes and suitcases, along with the wall plug to charge up the phone, and buy another one to charge the battery too. its under 5% so i shut it off. i have 0 idea yet if the local poker room has usb modems.
yes while riding the plane into dallas, (from there i took greyhound into shreveport) my luggage somehow disappeared. i fully suspect it was stolen, but we all know what happened the last time i suspected something of being stolen. i gave them my vegas address, (they wanted a local one) and my phone which they will call, so i need it working. i can now give them my shreveport address. i told them id be here for 3-7 days and im pretty sure this is where they intend to send it if they receive it. KOD also graciously offered to let me give them his dallas address which i will do if it turns up in dallas and theyre not planning to send to shreveport. ill call them tomorrow.
i will not only check out the poker scene for my readers here over the next few days but also the live BJ action. i would look on the vbj too but i seriously doubt there is one.
now as for the chicken fingers story u have been reading on twitter. first, as soon as it was over, 2 trolls on twitter tried to claim it was them, people ive never met (ryan and tommy) who werent even in MD live. the story stealthmunk is hearing is bogus too. those were trolls too trying to pretend who simply read about it and wanted to get my goat. the old man on my left i didnt recognize, not sure ive played with him. he had a $1 riviera chip, but didnt seem to have played with me there. i was a bit pissed due to his hand hitting the card twice as the dealer was dealing to me, and me having to give back a king. plus i wasnt winning any of my hands.
so right after getting my food i was waiting for the BB to get to me so i could use the rr. i only ate the fries, and took a quick count of the chicken fingers cause i was worried someone might eat one. i counted 6. came back and counted 5 so i wasnt in a good mood. had the floor come, and demanded i wanted to know who stole it and wished to prosecute and explained how wrong it is to just take someones food. he went to call surveillance for me and i seen him on the phone at the desk. the old guy on my left and the guy on my right said they didnt touch it nor did they see anyone else touch it. then he said ill bet u $200 no one took it. i shook his hand and said "bet". (he sat $200 in his cup holder). i was convinced someone did and felt the tape would show it if they would look. i shouldve offered to do it for $20 just to be safe but i wasnt thinking.
theres no way this couldve been a setup. for one he wouldnt know they would actually look on the tape beforehand. two, he didnt think i would take the bet. three, he would think if they did check the tape they would not come back saying no one took it if he wouldve took it. nor would he risked offering to bet. i felt MUCH EMBARRASED immediately afterwards for making the bet. but i am proud to say i honor my bets and paid it. the vast majority would not, and i feel this speaks extremely well of me.
the only explanation i have is the way the chicken fingers were positioned, it did look like 6 chicken fingers. but when i removed the one on the top to eat i could see there were 5. this was when i came back. i then put it back on top, and then i couldnt tell for sure if there were 5 or 6. the one piece on the bottom which was great big mightve been mistaken for 2 pieces at first. i think i shouldve actually picked them up when counting them. no other explanation unless someone actually snatched one which security didnt catch. the security guy spoke to me and he said they did look and no one went near my food in the 2 minutes i was in the rr.
it embarrasses me because it makes me look funny to the floorman, since i was wrong. ive already thought ive looked funny to the other floorman, whose asian from the plo in the past trip.
i will go back to sleep now, too tired still to go play. probably will be no game going after midnite when i wake up but oh well. theres still BJ tables.
