Door County

I’m leaving for Door County tomorrow. For those of you unfamiliar with the area, Door County is the tip of the peninsula that hangs off the eastern side of Wisconsin into Lake Michigan. It’s a real touristy area, and my wife’s family goes there towards the end of every summer.

Normally I would say that Door County is a pretty nice location for a relaxing vacation. The problem I have with it that my wife’s family goes every year, and every year starting around February I have to hear about how the Door County trip is coming up, and how great Door County is, and how no can wait to get there, and blah blah blah. I don’t think a trip to Vegas, New Orleans, Hawaii, Mars, or could possibly live up to the hype that this place receives.

So I’ll be out of town this weekend. I’m not real excited about it, but like I said, at the very least it should be nice and relaxing. Plus, anything beats the hell out of working.

The worst thing about this trip however is our monthly poker game, which we haven’t had in about three months, is scheduled for this weekend. So I have to miss it.

The only time I’ve actually touched real cards in the past few months was when we had a block party a few weeks ago. A lady came around with decks of cards for a raffle. For $1 you get a card, tear it in half, and put one half in the bag. They then draw a card from the bag and whoever has the matching piece wins half the pot. The rest goes to fund next year’s party. For $2 I got Ks3c and immediately thought “fold”.

One of my friends who is going to the tourney said that he would guest blog the tournament. There’s a pretty good chance that he will either forget to write it up, or remember, but then opt not to because he’s a lazy bastard. So maybe we’ll get to read about the tournament that I’m missing, maybe not. Either way, I won’t be back until the middle of next week.
