so... anyone for up an 8.8.08. mini-gathering?
« on: July 31, 2008, 09:50:40 AM »

So me being asian (BIG SHOCK!) we're mostly superstitious...
- charms on doors and walkways
- only money from a red evelope is lucky
- dont leave your chopsticks standing in your rice
- our food will fill you up only to have you hungry again in 30 mins
- apparently its good to have animals on your calendar

anyway, 8.8.08 is suppose to have some posperous stuff going on that day.
Recently my fate was handed to me via a fortune cookie:

In case you cant read it, it says-
You will take a chance in the near future, and win.

dood, I must follow the cookies orders. :)
I am away at Ani-Jam this weekend but I figure next weekend if anyone wants to try their luck at a Casino... why not?

There's tons of radio ads for the Cash Creek Casino supposedly doing stuff for the 8.8.08 psuedo holiday.

unforunately i'm not off until 6pm and the drive into that area is at least 3 hours, so anyone want to try their "asian" luck between 10pm and midnight?

otherwise, who wants a 'quiet' poker or heck Chaotic Custom Uno game night?
eh, I'm just randomly throwing it out there. So dont pay no mind.  :P

8-8-08 is lucky?  This is good to know.   :D  Instead of driving all the way down to Cash Creek, I'll just stick to the local casinos.  (sometimes it's good to living in Reno).  If I win MegaBucks on 8-8-08 I'll buy you guys dinner.  lol.

Come to think of it, that's also my last day at my God awful summer job.  YAY!  I'm gonna celebrate that day!

I've been to the one off Saratoga - Garden City or whatever, right?  It doesn't have any slots or anything, just blackjack and poker.

dood chinese ALWAYS work.

holiday? another opportunity to make a sale?

Birthday? you take ALL YOUR GIFTS and sell them HIGHER than retails to make a profit.

and you wonder why there are 5 BILLION + of us out there.

because we make cheap designer shoes and rediculously low prices and sell them to whoever pays the most!

Ha! and its the faux kind! and it still looks good.

Ours is a bootleg generation that goes beyond ancient history.

Now it's "Why buy that DVD of Rush Hour 3, when I can Give it to you for 5$!"

Before that it was

"Why buy that gold pan for 5c? I make another for 2c!"

And even before that

"Why buy that man's cart! I have have another new cart ready for you tomorrow for 1 duck!"

And WAAAAAAY before that

"Ugh rguh buh gug! Ugh ruuugh 2 rocks gug!"

It's in our blood!
