    Well, as a few of you might possibly--but probably won't--notice, I've been gone for a long-arse time.

    Can't remember when I made my last post prior to this one (and the one 4 minutes ago about my job...), but I know it's been a long, long time.

    Anyhoo....for anyone who might possibly care, I'm still at Baylor U down here in Waco. I'm a junior....but I didn't take classes this semester. Totally burned out and just generally bored with life. Sooooo.....I went straight-up rebel, pissed my mom off, and started playing poker for a living. I've done well at it, and I WILL be playing in the World Series of Poker this summer, so be watching for me (see name above) on TV starting around....October, probably (hopefully):hyper:.

    For those concerned, I *AM* going back to school next fall. While I hated school while I was there, not being there has made me wanna go back. Plus, if something ever happens with poker, I'll be able to get a *cough* REAL job......bleh.

    Now, for the saddest part of it all......I sold my axe awhile back. Right around the time I stopped posting, actually. At the time I was in desperate need of money for school, plus I wasn't playing AT ALL, and my axe deserved better than it was getting. So, I sold it, along with my thunder-rig that I loved so much. I do plan to get back into it, but not anytime soon. Entirely too occupied with life outside of bassdom.

    So anyways....for anybody that remembers me....what's been goin' on around here that I might be interested in. Furthermore, what's been going on in YOUR lives---if you care to share.

    The obvious answer is......but of course I have!!!

    The current count stands at a baker's dozen.

    Current count on my driving record?: ZERO!

    I've been wondering about you as well. I never make it over to your corner of paradise (aka Hewitt), but I still have wondered often how you've been. Hope everything is going well with you and your wife!

    Funny how the day you decide to check back in at TB is the same day I decide to check back in.

    Things are ok. When I graduated college in '04 my band split up and I kind of fell off the bass bandwagon. Went months without touching a bass. Got into cars instead. Getting back into the swing of things with a couple of gigs this weekend.

    Wow man, I didn't know you took the semester off? I completly understand though. It is really hard to see how school is going to pay off sometimes.

    It's cool you are doing something you like. Even if your mom hates it :D Good luck at that.

  20. it's WSOP, n00b. :rolleyes:
