Start of 2018 New Years Bank Holiday

2018-01-02 14.49.38After collecting an online order, I went to my favourite Chinese restaurant Mii&U and had a big bowl of Korean Soup.
When paying I asked if I could take a fortune cookie – Picked a red one; but it was attached to a green one so I got two.
When I opened the red one there was two cookies inside; so now I’ve got three.

Emptying my garage and conservatory

I have a gentleman who used to be my neighbour. He comes when I text him to collects all of my PC related rejects. The charity he is involved with regularly sends lorry loads of stuff to somewhere in Africa. It is nice to know that my rejects are not just being flogged on; but actually being re-used.

He came today to pick up: 7 boxes, 3 touch screens till monitors, a couple of till card-readers, 3 dead PCs, 1 laser printer, 1 dead printer and lots of power leads and this and that’s.

My garage and conservatory are now looking rather empty and I can start tidying them up.

I will get rid of more on “Facebook Marketplace”, some for sale and some for free; the more the better!

I checked what would go by advertising “11 mostly white pillow cases” for free, they found a new home within 24 hours. Not bad at all.

Is Danish a difficult language?

I received, today, the last parcel of my order from “Danish Direct” after discovering that it was under new ownership.

In my order was (what a surprise) a Liquorice stick called “Ama’r Stang”.

So unless you are Danish you wouldn’t know that that’s the way to pronounce “Amager”, an island (where the CBH airport is located) and a suburb of Copenhagen.

So you can’t tell me that the Danish are not hungry, they even eat half their words, yet the words still make sense.

The worst poker room managers decision

I was playing at MK Casino and had 4700 chips already in the pot. We were heads up, the person in front of me bets 3000, I told him that I only have 600 left and calls.

He then chucks his cards, not into the middle of the table but, straight to the right of him into the muck. Suddenly he realises that I had called and retrieves his cards from the muck.

I had a 9 for the straight, he had an ‘Ace’ for the straight; BUT in my eyes, he had mucked his cards so the pot was mine, in the managers eyes it was his because of his ‘Ace’.

It didn’t matter how much I argued that he had mucked his cards and that he wasn’t paying attention to my move; I lost.
