Buffalo Creek Casino 2

From what I have been hearing at work the place was jammed packed today. The information that I got was they were 4 deep behind every slot machine. So 4 people were waiting for some to eirther go broke or cash out so they could grab their machine.

Those old ladies must have been waitng with binoculars for the place to open today.

Who says that Western New York is broke. In a way they have pulled off a great move. Open the casino to a thunderous stampead and the citizens will DEMAND to keep it open no matter what the courts rule.

(e:joshua) I have been rich people drop in this place in 4 hours what I will probally make in 10 years. You don't have to be poor to be devastated by gambling, just look at Mike Pellegrino. Just because you have a million dollar bankroll does not make you immune to having it all crash down.

Buffalo Creek Casino Open!!!!

Damn, That was a bit of a sneak attack.



That is defiantly how they roll where I "work"*. They just do whatever the F they want. Judge, Pending Lawsuits, We just don't care, try to stop us, it's native land.

I liked the part about,

"In a possible sign of things to come, an armored car pulled up in front of the casino, just as a group of older women pulled to the curb and asked if they could start gambling."


No matter what they say about Western New York there still is a bunch of older people sitting on a pile of cash that NEED gambling action. The casino will be a success just because there is still such a demand for it. Now the elderly in the Southtowns and Cheektowaga
have a closer option.

I wonder what Artvoice is going to say now?

WTF???

I finally have some free time to myself and I decide to head out with my friend Billy Bob last night. He usually drives but tonight since I have decided to be a vegetarian and abstain from drinking for the month of June I drove.

We ended up at the Pink and for a night with me only drinking 2 Red Bulls I just couldn't believe how the night turned out for the weird. Bill was observing some drunk dude constantly hitting on some chick and her friend being a good friend "Cock Blocking." Well drunk dude just didn't get it and kept on hitting on her even after her friend was ultra direct and kept on yelling at him to go away.

Last call comes around and good friend's boyfriend & brother come around and things get pretty heated. I did find the whole episode quite amusing since reading the last (e:vycious) post about women. Watching this dude just persistently fire away at this chick was really an interesting demonstration on fortitude I suppose. It almost seems that sometimes if you just focus on playing the game to win, you make you own luck and you do score. For as much as we think societal rules apply there are women out there that are just of weak will and low self esteem that will fall for some guy that just keeps coming at them. I guess it fulfills some fantasy on "Wanting a guy that is willing to Fight for Them."

Needles to say drunk guy, Good Friend BF and drunk ass bro all blow up at once. Somehow Billy Bob gets shit from someone and all I'm thinking is, "I'm more than sober and in a minute I'm going to be throwing punches @ all places The Pink for something that I was not involved with and with people of whom I don't know!" In the end end GF BF exonerates us by telling his drunk ass brother that, "they're good people and just buddies." Billy Bob just laughs it off and says that drunk guy is just like his brother Dave when he drinks. The type that just get pissed and and look for a fight at any drop of a hat.

Situation averted; YEAH!

Booh Yea

1st post using a Mac and Safari

Finally figured out how to change over my Road Runner connection from a UBS plug in to a Ethernet :-/ Only from calling the AppleCare guys this morning I was informed of the BAD conseqnences of trying to connect using a UBS connection.

Other than that WOW life is much more fun of this side of the Hardware universe. All except for I still dislike the standard Apple mouse and will immediately look for a replacement.

Celebrity Fit Club M v. W

Thanksfully the season is almost over but I think I woulld have been hooked just by Screech. I am a bit embarassed to say I can totally relate to the guy. The wanting to do his own thing, the being intelligent but coming off as a smart alec smartass, the elusive communication, the "finding peace" thing and last but not least popping Zantrex 3 to lose 5 pounds.

I also have to say that Maureen McCormick (Marsha Brady) is still pretty Damn Hot. If I didn't know better I would have though she was at the most in her early 30's.

Fort Erie Racetrack

So I finally had a day off and since it was a nice day and I wanted to enjoy it. I wanted to gamble a bit but at the same time having a desire to be outside I settled on going to the track.

Here are a bunch of pics that I took when I wasn't studying the Daily Racing Form to find a winner or two.

Now I have to throw in a Food Pic. This is a favourite Canadian pastime of mine, Cut Fries with Malt Vinnegar.

Then there is the racing aspect of which if there wasn't this to begin with the whole point of being here would just about be moot for the vast majority of people.

Where the money goes. I had the #5 horse and wish I had listened to my gut instinct and boxed the 5 and 6 together for the Exacta (a bet picking the 1st and 2nd horses in order) The 6 horse was owned and trained by an excellent trainer. Andre Cappicetti.

Look at what the Superfecta paid for a $1 wager. The superfecta is picking the first 4 horses in correct order, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th. You could have even had 1/5 on a $0.20 cent bet!!!

I was happy to make some money on the 5 horse

SO afterwards I ended up heading back home and at the last minute went to the Domed Theater and checked out The Deftones. (e:metalpeter) I wish I had your #. If you wanted to go I would have been able to pick you in the Blo after I crossed the Peace Bridge.

Needless to say it was a kick ass show. They played for a little more than 90 minutes and the stage show was pretty impressive. They had the light board going behind them a la NIN style.

The only weird aspet of the show was this woman that I work with was a bartender there tonight. Most of the time I really can't stand her. She's just one of those people that loves to hear themselves talk, and thinks that just because she's skinny she's hot. While in actuality I think she looks like a freaking Muppet! But I digress I did have a good time and picked up a T-shirt. So with the $23 I won @ the track I ended up spending it on getting in and a bit more on an enjoyable concert.

Huh???

I sure hope there is a movie in the works or something. I was rocking out to Journey's "Don't Stop Beieving" and then .....Black Screen???!!!???


WTF???


Like I said I sure hope there's a movie coming out soon or something.

Not that I was the biggest Sopranos fan. I think i was more enamoured with the theme song in the begining, but I grew to like Christopher and recently A.J.

Plus, it does help to pretend to be related to a main character's actor (Frank Vincent) :-( R.I.P. Which makes it even worse for this final episode.




Now why couldn't they have come close to the finale of 6 feet under??? That was THE BEST ENDING EVER OF ANY TV SERIES EVER.

Sleepwalking

I was in this place last night until 3am and I pretty much felt as if I was sleepwalking. When I was driving home I was shocked awake when two whitetailed deer were running across River Rd as I was driving home. In being my almost sleepwalking state I had someone else check my car to see if I actually did hit something or not. Apparently I did not, thankfully. It's just that in that state of mind I just wasn't sure if it was real or not.

On a ligher not of being off mentally, I'm humming/singing "Stars are Blind" as we scan the Fox News Channel at the moment with Paris being the only topic @ the moment.

What blew my mind away is they have Ann Coulter on discussing Paris? Let's have an attractive, skinny blonde with an attitude give her $.02 on the current attractive, skinny blonde with even more Money, but not as much iintelligence that is in trouble. I just think it's a bit out of the ordinary, unless Paris is somehow related to the Democratic Party.

A nice time last night

I must say I did enjoy the sitting on the porch on a perfect night to do so. Being dry for the time being did give me an interesting perspective on how (e:strip) parties take off in certian directions.

This culminated in my friend Billy-B getting thrown into a frantic state from (e:lilho) !!! Basically this ended up in me taking us out by the Airport if you know what I mean :wink, wink:

So in all, what I can say is (e:lilho) you looked hot and really made a powerful impression on my friend for his first (e:strip) party!!!


So now I just sit here at work getting ready to start. Not that I really care anymore since my days are numbered. It is just that after being in Vegas and seeing how the lower end operators on the strip function and then coming back to this Shithole there just is no comparison. F this place.

almost finished out here

I have been out here a week and to be honest I wish I could stay out here longer. This is the first time where I may have to leave something to stay here, Ha Ha.

The best part is I had to stay sober for the entire time out here and I still had a blast. The highlight of the trip was hanging out with my friend Chad from LJ. You just love the way the internet brings people together in very strange ways.

Now I have to pack and try to squeeze some fun in the next few hours before I head back to B-lo.

Oh, the mystery "guest" that sent me the message when I was leaving the Palms after a not so good session brought me a smile.
