So, played cards with my buddy J again last night.  Those of you who are curious, we play a game called School, and here are the basics:

You play with two decks (or a deck per person) and deal out 13 cards per player (if the dealer picks off exactly the number of cards he/she needs you get a bonus -50 points)

There are 9 rounds (grades):

1 - 2 sets of 3

2 - run 3, set 3

3 - 2 runs of 3

4 - 3 sets of 3

5 - run 4, set 4

6 - 2 runs of 3

7 - run 7, set 3

8 - 3 sets of 4

9 - run of 11

Jokers, as usual, are wild.

You put down your cards as you collect them, and if the other person gets rid of all their cards first, you are stuck with the points left in your hand.

I tried valliantly last night to beat her, and even had her worried, but in the end, she won. AGAIN.  I will one day... but as usual, I enjoyed the game very much.  Interesting observations from last night:

On one hand, I needed a king and a jack to finish, got a joker and a jack.

On the next hand, I needed a king to finish, and got a joker.

On the hand after that, I needed a king to finish AGAIN (I know... lots of kings) and got the king of hearts.

What does all that mean you might ask?  Well, there are lots of wild kings, jacks, and jokers flying around...  *giggles*

Last night's score ended up being me 119, J 93.  Close... oh so close.  We're up for a rematch on Monday night..... AFTER....

We take new promo pics!!!!

We're shooting a new set of promo pics Monday night at a secret location in Montreal.  I can't wait, this is gonna be great.  Montreal has a whole slew beautiful landmarks, some of which are very special to me, I can't wait to show you!

We're also gonna be filming our next round of cards, I'm convinced at this point that she's cheating, and this is the only should be funny...

For J.... WATCH out honey.... I'm gonna get ya!!! *giggles*  fine piece of real estate
