I'm less than 24 hours away from boozing in Vegas.
I land at 10pm, Wednesday.
I can't wait to see my friends. I can't wait to make new ones.
That's really what this is all about, after all.
I even bought a damn cell phone for this event. Will someone please add me to the flash mob list when we move around? Purty please?
My humble apologies for not getting an uber post up in time. I've got tons of poker content to blog but didn't have the time to put it together. Hell, I haven't even started packing or anything yet. Typical.
Anyone not attending our shindig needs to play on Party Poker, damnit.
Make sure to read Pauly's Bloggers Invading Las Vegas Tips 3.0.
Then read Otis's post What to Pack for Vegas.
And last, but most certainly not least, Joe Speaker ripped off a hilarious 'Twas the Night before Vegas. Bloody brilliant.
There is a reason I never post my picture or anything on this here poker blog.
It's my big secret and I finally spilled it in chat.
Of course, once I did so, this person decided not to meet me. I can't help the way God made me!
Here's a repost of that old chat. It's become customary for me to post this before leaving to meet everyone.
