Summer 2006 Division Champs

It's Not a Tumor did it! We had an amazing season with 10 teams in this division (Slick Willies North on Burnet and 183). 90% of the season, the team held first or second place and everyone placed exceptionally well throughout the summer season. We made it to play offs and were scheduled to play the "Wild Card" -- and it was the infamous team, 21 oz Cues. *giggles*

The captain of the team, who is also one of the sweetest guys around, was doing some trash talkin' prior the the day of playoffs informing me that HE was DUSTING his bookshelf to make room for the trophy he was going to bring home after giving our team the ol' SMACK DOWN.
Well, we had to prove him wrong and we spanked them 3-0! w00t!

The following week was the final playoff match and it was pretty intense. Every game went to double hill and we ended up pulling off the win with a 3-2! Double w00t!

This is us...minus Ronnie (think he had a date and had to leave before the night was over). I need to super impose him on the picture somehow after I can get a photo of him.

Thanks guys for a great season and looking forward to this new season. *big hug*

BA Tattoo?

If I wasn't such a wimp, this would be a pretty sweet Battle Angel Alita tattoo. It would match my candle holder that a good friend made for me. It's the same image of Alita on a clear glass square. It's really gorgeous and a one of a kind candle holder since it was hand made.

Hey, now that I think about it -- Maybe Cracker Jacks or Lucky Charms will produce one of those slap on sticker tattoos that I used to dip in water and press on the back of my hand.

I'm not a huge fan of Cracker Jacks - just never was fond of caramel coated peanuts and popcorn. But the prizes were always great. *Digging to the bottom of the box just to get the prize*. I don't think I ever actually finished a box of Cracker Jacks...bleh.

Absolutely Marvelous It's Not a Tumor!

Wow, 2 inches makes a big difference. Taking home the 12 inch trophy versus the 14 inch's all bout' the inches.

This was one of the most solid teams and play I've seen in a long time. You guys (you know who you are), are ABSOLUTely amazing and hope we can all play many more seasons together.

There's less than 3 weeks before Tri-Cups, which is the next qualifier to make it to regionals in Austin, TX. If we win Tri-Cups, drinks will be on me....Count on that! *Big hug*

September 12 - Element of Surprise

One of the greatest inventions of all time - it's a beautiful thing to play your favorite songs over and over again.

Apple confirmed that it will hold a special event on Tuesday, September 12th at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco, California. An invitation sent to select media, including iLounge, features Hollywood premiere-style spotlights and reads simply, “It’s Showtime.” The event will kick off at 10:00 a.m. PT. Hmmmmmmmm......

Analysts have speculated that Apple will use a September event to launch numerous product and service offerings, ranging from new iPod nano and video models to a 23-inch iMac, new iPod-inspired phone and a movie download service. Such speculation rarely proves entirely accurate, however, as few people know Apple’s plans for certain until the event actually takes place. Apple is quiet about their new releases, but I can guarantee that they will be great features -- they always are.

Billiard Lessions - Worth the Dinero?

I've been playing for a few years and have come to a plateau on my level of play. There's so much more to learn and I need to invest more time and also take lessons from a pro.

I've been thinking about taking pool lessons for some time now. I've got an awesome cue - a friend gave me his pearl blue lucasi and I got the PredatorZ shaft up in Vegas last year. I've been fortunate to have played with some great players that have taken time out of their schedule to teach me some important skills, drills and basic foundation. You guys know who you are...(JP,WH,JM and K). You all are great players and one day, I'll be right up there with ya!

I've signed up with an instructor, Belinda Calhoun, and start my lessons on Thursday, September 7th. She's amazing - ranked 25th in the nation. Pretty impressive. I'm so excited and can't wait to begin the first lesson.

I'll keep you guys updated on how the lesson went and future lessons. I've schedule 4 one hour sessions for this month.


G'nite all and have a wonderful Labor Day.
