Two Cakes


Congrats to Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, taking down $2m and winning the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. My interview with him this summer at the WSOP. And thanks to Otis and his team for covering it on PokerStars Blog.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes, keep them coming! Here, I celebrated my birthday in my storage closet!

31/365 Happy Birthday!

My middle son woke me up at 6:05 to have prayer breakfast. We snuck out in the fog for omelettes when he gave me a present, "...bought with his own money..." as my wife told me later. It was the Complete Guide to Barbells, so I now have even more incentive to start working out more. It was a total shock when he whipped out a gift for me at the little cafe where we had breakfast. I took him to school then made my way home, where I received birthday wishes from my wife, my eldest son, and my youngest (who just made his way down to my office). My wife hung these framed photos that I took in Paris, some really great shots. I don't have them digitally, but I'll have to get the negatives from my Mom and get them digitally.

As part of my birthday, I ran a contest to give away a free Flickr Pro account or iTunes gift card for the response to Britney's Horror Paragraph. It was a tough battle, with Jordan making a strong case (probably too strong--pictured him riding a bus with AARP members to Atlantic City). Here is the winner from a young photographer in Mumbai:

During the past year, Priyanka has been photographed doing a chicken dance with the mayor on Independence day and forcing him too to dance, and has appeared to be a lot more stupider than before. She also made a fool out of herself by only waxing one of her legs ntentionally, beat herself with a grape vine, spent a day in jail for eating the carrot in the cop's garden and has had yellow frog skin growing all over her, including one (finger) in which she has a tatoo saying 'retard'!!

You can see her photos here. Congrats to her, and thanks for everyone who participated. Heading to the sofa to sleep a few hours.
