Poker Party?

Next Wednesday is my two year blogversary! i never thought i'd make it past one year, but here i am. i'd like to celebrate with a party for you all as my way of saying thanks. It don't matter if you're a new or old visitor, or even if you've never left a comment before. Everyone is invited. Once in the distant past, i held a Yahoo! pool party that was really fun, although only sparsely attended because i didn't give much notice. Now with the popularity of online poker, i'm considering the idea of an annika-versary poker party on Yahoo! Either that or pool. The advantage to a poker party is that everyone can participate at the same time, instead of one-on-one competition while everybody else chats. Of course, no money changes hands in Yahoo! poker, but that's okay, since i suck at poker anyways. It's all about the bragging rights, and the chance to socialize in cyberspace with my blog pals. And of course, since the money isn't real, drinking a large quantity of alcohol while playing shouldn't be a problem. Let me know what you think.

Update: Poker it is.

Is this from the beginning of your BlogSnot blog, or your citizenship in Munuvia? Either way, congratulations, and an online poker tourney sounds like fun! I'll try to make it if you announce the where and when. (NOTE: You know if you try to put "p0ker c0m..." in the comments of a Munuvian blog, it won't go thru? Heh.)

Thanks, JD. Victor, it's 2 years from the beginning of the Glogspot days. We'll do it next Wednesday, probably starting at like 7:00 pm California time. i'll post an announcement next week about which Yahoo! room, etc.

Not to sound repetitive or anything, but yet another "Congrats!" 7PM your time's only 10 here on the east coast, so it shouldn't be any problem: I'll try to be there. Should be fun.

I will consume mass quantities for the occasion.

I'll be there in my silk pajamas.

Try to choose one of the less-populated social lounges, so we don't have to worry about back doors.

I'm going to be busy in theatre rehearsals until after 10, but if I'm not completely burnt out (smoked out?) I'll try to join. I've met some good people via Yahoo! Poker.
