It's like 10 thousands forks when all you need is a bike.
I never understood that crazy bitch.
By this point most everyone I deal with on any type of a regular basis knows that I quit the casino job for various reasons, one being my mental well being. Every time I had to talk about it I felt like shit and way too late I realized I should have just made up some cue cards or something and handed them to people when they started asking questions.
This evening I was doing something - playing on Facebook or reading Volume 1 of The Walking Dead - and received a call from a buddy who was going to his second Craps Audition tonight. He outright nailed his first and the floor person kept him on the game for almost a full shift. However, he had one big stumble right at the end which was really him just over thinking something. Minutes after the fact he could ramble off every bloody thing he did wrong and what every payment was supposed to be on that last roll. He knew he blew it and it bugged the shit out of him.
Tonight he gives me the call a few hours before his audition just to solidify some stuff in his mind. There was one particular bet that he just wasn't wrapping his mind around this evening and he wanted to hash it out with me. After about 15-20 minutes I felt very confident that he had it down and was just nervous and over thinking things because he didn't want to fail a second audition. I have 100% confidence that he will call me either tonight or tomorrow to tell me that he nailed it and was offered the job on the spot.
I'm looking forward to that conversation, I really am.
I finally decided to start reading The Walking Dead comics and I'm really loving them. I bought them right before Season Two started to air as they were finally released digitally and Comixology was running a sale. Having never watched any of the show I decided I wanted to read a bunch of the comics before doing that. This way I could have the original and then follow along with the show as well.
After the first volume I'm happy to say that I'm enjoying the shit out of them. The all black-n-white at first felt cheap to me but now I'm good with it. The story has been good and very character driven instead of action driven and that's nice and refreshing. The more I read the more I want to keep reading. At the end of each book I want to just dive into the next. Within the next week or so I'm going to sit down with Season 1 on Blue Ray and burn through that as well.
I need to buy some new beer because all the stuff I have went out of date around December. Sure, it hasn't gone bad yet but it doesn't have that same great taste that I'm used to.
I also need to go over to my buddies house and get my bottle of Jaeger out of his freezer and put it in my belly!
