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.


i love a guy…

…who loves his mom.

There is a guy in my English class that is constantly talking on his cell phone to his mom. Sometimes I catch him saying ‘mama’ or ‘mother’ but for the most part, he affectionately discusses his life with ‘mom’. I don’t eavesdrop necessarily — we’re just always wating for class together and he’s always on the phone. Sometimes I am not sure it’s his mom, but I often am there for when the phone rings [Hey Mom! I miss you] or when he’s saying goodbye [I love you mama!] or mid convo [Oh stop it Mom, you’re embarrassing me!] All the while, he’s discussing things from his love interests to not being called back by a girl to work and school to what he did the night before. A few times his phone has actually rang at the very onset of class and he goes “HEY MOM” and jumps out of his desk and runs out of the room, not returning for about 14.7 minutes.

I find this endearing. I love my mama too, but I don’t know many guys who actually stop in the middle of the day… obviously more than that… to show his mama some love. I kinda want to ask him about her.

Now, I am sitting in the comp. lab at UVic right now, minding my research when some guy’s phone just rang and he answered, real loud, “Hey Mom, I was just going to call you!” and lo and behold, it’s the dude from English. English doesn’t start for another hour.5 or so, proving they talk more than once per day, and he just ran out of the lab to chat with her… I think it’s hilarious.

I also just realized my creep-value because he’s sitting across from me in the lab and I am writing a blog about him. Perchance I can take a picture of him, talking to his mama, on my own phone… I will then update this post.

In other words, thank goodness it’s Friday.
