found a place to live
but then Ray told me the woman called him back and said the tenant moved out and the place was available and i had to go ahead and check into my free room anyway or else id be charged, (i had to give them my debit card over the phone to hold it) and i really hate reading off the number and 3 digit code because a dishonest employee could use it to steal that way.
so i did BOTH today, paid $2800 upfront to move into the new apartment, on a month to month lease, and checked into the nugget in sparks. and while at the nugget i played a little blackjack. at one point i was over $400 ahead in the live BJ, but when i left the casino i was only up $36. went upstairs and made the room look like it was slept in.
and i still managed to get some sleep too. plus i bought a shit ton of food, pajamas, and miscellaneous objects and clothes.
at least i have a real place to live now and its within walking distance of the Peppermill although id only want to make the walk during daylight hours. i hope she isnt too strict about not finding reasons to give the deposit back whenever i leave town because i gave her an awful lot of money for that deposit.
i ran into Marle here but never spoke to me or her to me. i dont really like or have any interest in meeting woman who wont follow me back on twitter due to my autism and my political beliefs, and she isnt the only woman who never acknowledges tweets she is tagged in. and i wasnt going to sit in the $3-5 and later $5-10 game she was in. for one thing the $3-5 is $300 not $200 here and most match the biggest stack. and the $5-10 is $1000 minimum to the biggest stack instead of $500.
i prefer sitting in the $1-2 NL for $40 and slowly adding to the stack in the first 2-3 hours til i eventually have a few hundred in front of me.
so today i won a little over $70 in the NL and i sat in the $1-2 PLO with $100 and a bunch of people were pissed off the min wasnt $200 because they had tons in front of them. they started quitting and broke the game up because they were rich assholes but i played 6 handed for about 45 minutes. and i ended up winning $154 in the game before it ended. sad thing is when i left the poker room i went out and threw it all away in the big split again, no idea why i cant win on it when the payback is set so high.
so on the way to get an Uber i seen the scarab at 375 credits at 10c each. thats $37.50 a spin. there is multiple of these machines here at the Peppermill. and there was 1 spin played with 2 scarabs in the first row. so i decided to risk it and by the 9th spin i still only had scarabs in rows 1, 4 and 5 so i was expecting a big loss. but on the 10th spin rows 2 and 3 lit up with the other wild lady symbol in it so it ended up paying $1721. so i was thrilled to walk out of the casino up over $1400 for the night again. i got extremely lucky because without those symbols it mightve not paid anything due to the scarabs being in the wrong spots.
i just wish i had the self discipline to not play any video poker, no matter the payback. the only machines worth playing are dealers angels and they dont exist in reno. and im glad i didnt lose in the live BJ at the sparks nugget, though i felt like i did once i gave most of it back away on a good plus count in the final shoe.
at least i feel like coming to reno was a good idea. my roll is still $19,900 if i can count my deposit as part of the roll. am i supposed to include the deposit since its essentially no different than any other bank account due me? i did find out the walmart is now closing at midnight and not reopening til 6am. the only ones open 24 hours are a much more expensive Uber ride away. and my stomach gets getting bigger and bigger because of eating so much icecream and burritos.
