Jerry sent me these observations in an e-mail: “I did see Celebrity bursa303.city Showdown last night and both Paul Rudd and Ron Livingstone knew how to play the game – but Paul just kept getting the best cards – I have never seen such a strong string of cards – his bad hands were K-10o. But it was fun to watch – I think they all knew how to play and Coolio just wanted to BE THE MAN – which you can’t just do in poker. I think Shannon Elizabeth is a dud – besides the hottest body… she is a lame-O. I like the other girl Sara Silverman – she was funny – although she dumped the top hand that one time that would have really brought her back into the game – whatever.”
Thanks Jerry for sharing. That might have been one of the only episodes of Celebrity Poker Showdown that I could watch and not go crazy without hurling outrageous insults and/or small objects at the TV. I caught the last episode, the one with Princess Leia, Mimi Rogers (Ahem… the former Mrs. Tom Cruise #1), and everyone’s favorite whacked out Canadian… Tom Green. That was awful to watch. I would have gone insane if I had to play at that table.
The Taos on Hiatus?!?
Jerry suggested: “You should put up on your Taos that you are on hiatus becasue I’m sure it would make them feel better than you were just too lazy to blog. I would have been pissed these days if I did not know your intentions of a break (well deserved mind you) and kept seeing no new posts – but hey, thats just me – a person who loves to read about others lives and live through that – I have been living through Leticia – the 17 year old masterbating fiend who is stil iin high school but thinks she may want to be a stripper – I got the link from Belle!”
Despite the rumors you heard…
- I did not fly to Vegas to wed Britney Spears, although she’s been hanging out in Miami! And the reason I have not been blogging has nothing to do with all those nasty rumors… getting Britney drunk on Mai Tais and dragging her down the aisle of the Little White Chapel on the Strip is not quite my style.
- I did not lose my entire poker bankroll at the Dog Track and I do not owe a guy named Slow Jimmy $4K! My poker loses are somehwere near $35 for the entire Florida trip.
- That odd rumor of a “secret wedding” in Jamaica with Haley is definitely not true.
As most of you already knew, I took an unscheduled hiatus… almost a week long break from the blogging world. All of my sites… the Tao of Pauly included, have not been worked on in over a week.
So… why Pauly? There are several factors, but the main reason for the hiatus is that I had been blogging heavily for the last two years or so… without any major breaks. Even when I was on vacation, I was blogging. I needed a short hiatus to recharge, rest up, and spend a “technology free” week. Alas, part of my 2004 Resolutions were to become less dependent upon technology… and I embraced ceratin aspects of my new mantra while on holiday in Florida. But I’m back… sort of… I’ll be blogging on and off this weekend. But rest assured, I’ll be back in full swing by Tuesday!! Until then, feel free to check out my archives and several of my short stories in Truckin’. I know you have not read all of them!! See ya, McG
