Today we finally upgraded our old 20″ TV with a 42″ Plasma. Muhahahaha. It is sick. I hooked up my laptop to it through s-video and we watched last night’s episode of Battlestar Galactica. It was ordeal to hook up though. The entertainment setup is inlaid right into the wall, so there’s no getting around behind it for wires. Instead there are a few shelf holes and a narrow PVC tube to thread wires through. Shopping around for the TV and accessories (and do they ever ass-rape you on the cables! Don’t get me started…) took about 4 hours, and then wiring it all up took another good 4 or 5 hours.
I’ll be going to Las Vegas in mid-march for a few days. This is so cool — a group of Poker Academy Online regulars took it upon themselves to organize a Las Vegas rendevous to met each other and play in a bunch of tournaments together. I’m the lucky representative that gets sent down to greet them. I’m tickled pink that it was a spontaneous grass-roots event, and not something we organized. Of course, I’d be thrilled if it is a success and next year we take on a larger role. I can’t wait to go, especially to meet these folks as I’ve played many a hand of poker with them over the last eight months or so.
