that perfect hand…

In Ocean's 11, Danny said that "the house always wins. If you play long enough, never change the stakes, then the house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big… and then, you take the house." Here's the hand I've been dealt, sometimes it's risky and sometimes it's safe, but all the time… it's perfect. It's mine.

guess what?


Tonight I cooked my first meal in my kitchen that is semi-operational!! Not even kidding, I made chow mein, ginger beef, sweet ‘n sour pork, beef/broccoli, and egg rolls!! It was a magnificent feast with a couple guys from home followed by episode 2 of Prison Break’s new season. What a relief… I spent the entire evening going over in my head, “I could (and will) get used to this!”

Now the pay-back dinners to family and friends who have fed me for three weeks will begin!
