I Have A Gambling Problem

I’m surrounded by several casinos in the Seattle area, all offering a good mix of video slot machines, card and table games. Over the past few years I’ve gotten to know all of them pretty well… and that’s a problem. The lights and sounds and music… and the excitement of getting the right cards, or the dice landing on the right number… I loved it all!

The past month has been a whirlwind, capped with a move from Kirkland to Everett where I have my own apartment. It’s still very empty here as I’ve been a roommate for nine years, so I only have my bedroom of things. I tend to stay in my room with everything until I get furniture and such.

Hello world!

Hiya! So I’ve given in and installed WordPress. So far, this has been far easier to install and set up than Drupal, which I feel used to be far simpler than it is now… Anyway, I’ll be tinkering around and getting used to things and slowly start sharing content. Thanks for tuning in!
