Happy 10th Birthday

Today marks the 10-year anniversary of this blog. I started this little adventure thanks to the prodding of the late Bob Lassiter, a friend from a past life.

The deck was stacked against my reaching 1 year, let alone 10. I've never owned a computer or had internet access, and have relied on the good graces of the Clark County public library system. It was no easy feat playing a 6-hour session of $0.05-$0.10 NLHE in the halcyon days of pre-UIGEA online poker, when the time limit per user was a ½ hour. I wish to thank all the shushing librarians who turned a blind eye to my frequent loud and obscene outbursts which inevitably accompanied a bad beat or felting.

Las Vegas is not an employment friendly city, especially if one has no connections. As you know by now, I have been struggling on this front for many years, and hopefully the New Year will see a turnaround.

I wish to express gratitude to my fellow bloggers for their support and encouragement, and to my faithful readers for having to put up with my constant tribulations.

Here's to poetic license and the next 10 years!

Congrats on the milestone, wow, 10 years, nice!

What about revisiting head lice technician? Is the industry hiring?

Mr Subliminal said...

The industry is hiring but I blew any chance of being certified when I accidentally infected the examiners.

They are an unforgiving lot.

Mr Subliminal said...

Thank you, guys.

Good idea about Scroguard. However, I would have to fly to their headquarters in Atlanta for an interview. This is a problem when I can barely hustle up a bus fare to McCarran.

I look forward to seeing you again on my next trip to Las Vegas. Perhaps you can FINALLY give me that tour of the secret underground world you and the other homeless live in.

Congrats on 10 years!

That's impressive under any circumstances.

Mr Subliminal said...

Thank you, gentlemen.
