|« Hot off the press!||Hey people »|
I had plans of going to a friend's wedding that COMPLETELY fell through. Now when I say completely fell through, I mean that the person planning the trip (my roomate) called me at 1am the the night before we're to leave and tells me that he can't go. Wow. Thanks for the heads up.
So weekend plans being shot, I decided to make the most of it. Angie had already planned a girls' night with her friends for Friday so she went ahead with her plans (since her friends aren't deadbeats). So having a rare wide-open Friday, I worked some planning magic and found something to do.
I called up a good buddy of mine and headed to his apartment. I arrived to find him in the middle of a project. He was building a poker table in his garage. Being the fan of poker that I am, and considering that the guy was moving in with us in just a few weeks, I decided to lend a hand.
It seemed like the last time i worked with wood was Mr. Hogan's 8th grade wood-shop. It probably was. But we got it done. I'll post some pictures soon.
It's the standard run-of-the-mill table--black vinyl padded rail, blue velveteen top for optimum card slide-age. Derek even installed track lighting around the inner lip. Someday we'll hook up cameras so people in the other room can see what we have. Maybe I'll do it with a webcam and Matt can give me tips.
Saturday night was the usual--dinner (wings and cheese bread from a local fave) and a movie (National Treasure--not nearly as horrible as I thought it would be) with Angie.
And Sunday after church we played some poker. What a great weekend.
