Wholesome Fun

Wednesday, July 05, 2006

I'm back. Hope everyone had a great 4th of July! I wanted to post earlier today, but between playing catch-up and doing quarter-end reports at work, I was swamped. Anyways, I had a nice, wholesome weekend with my mom. Okay, anyone who believes that is smoking rock. It was a weekend of drinking and gambling with my mom. She pretty much rocks.

Sunday we did the Seneca Lake Wine Trail (upstate NY). We tasted wines at a total of 7 wineries (Hickory Hollow, Glenora, Fulkerson Winery, Castel Grisch, Red Newt Cellars, Tickle Hill, and Penguin Bay Winery and Champagne House), so yeah, I was pretty much wasted and mom had to cart my drunk ass all over the place. I think I must have spent a lot of money on wine, since I came back with a case, but I don't really remember. Guess that means it was a good time.

Then Monday we went to Tioga Downs. It's a newly opened racino in Nichols, NY. I've never seen harness racing, and let me just say, it was pretty exciting..especially when you're betting on the horses. Plus, they have a pretty nice casino (slots only, no tables). I only won about $10, and umm....yeah, I bet about $40, so I guess I lost $30. I was trying to pick horses based on my OCD..all even numbers. Then, I bet on one named "Mark's Superstar," thinking MU would finally bring me luck...unfortunately, the horse was a loser- by a long-shot. Guess he let me down again. Not only did he come in last, but almost a full minute after the others. I should have known better. All in all though, it was a very good time. Anyways, I promise I'll do a real post at some point this week.

That sounds awesome! Wine tasting and gambling is a good combination. Hehe. I love slot machines.

Yeah, I could smell the sarcasm wafting off that "wholesome" comment from a mile away. Glad to hear you had an Ash-worthy good time. ;)
