Oops and Yikes, age 7 weeks

They were seven weeks old yesterday. And they've gotten cute! Yikes is definitely a go-go-goer, into everything, fearless, and nothing is going to stop him. Oops is playful and curious, but a bit mellower than his brother. Did I mention cute? It's hard to get a picture of Yikes, because he doesn't sit still, but Oops is going to be a gorgeous cat when he grows up. He's already a beautiful silver fluffball with grey-green eyes.

They're pretty much weaned now, and should be ready to go to a new home in a week or two. I'd really like them to go to someone who wants to keep them together, and you'll see why when you look at the pictures-- they're definitely buddies. If you'd like to adopt a pair of adorable kittens, or know someone who would, send them my way. They've been around people all their lives, so they're well-socialized and think that humans are friendly providers of food and entertainment.

Yes, they really do sleep like that.

Thinking aloud about WSOP plans

I'm going to be in Vegas on Friday June 4 for TARGET, and Friday the 11th through Sunday the 13th for the womens event. Last year I did something similar, and I stayed the week in-between and worked from Vegas.

I may do the same thing this year, but I'm also contemplating taking the whole week off and maybe playing a couple of tournaments. The lineup for the week is:

Sat 6/5: $1000 Nolimit Holdem
Sat 6/5: $1500 2-7 Nolimit Draw Lowball
Sun 6/6: $10K Stud-8
Mon 6/7: $1500 6-handed Nolimit Holdem
Tue 6/8: $5000 Nolimit Holdem
Wed 6/9: $2000 Limit Holdem
Thu 6/10: $1500 PLO
Thu 6/10: $1500 7-card Stud
Fri 6/11: $1000 Ladies Nolimit Holdem
Fri 6/11: $2500 6-handed Limit Holdem
Sat 6/12: $1000 Nolimit Holdem
Sat 6/12: $10K Omaha-8

So the $1K nolimit on the 5th is going to be the usual clusterfuck. I'm not wild about the idea of playing eight-million-person tournaments, but doing one of them might not be horrible.

Sunday the 6th is uninteresting to me. My short-handed nolimit game isn't practiced enough for me to want to play on the 7th. The 8th is above my bankroll.

The $2K limit on the 9th would be interesting. I'm not a PLO player, but could find interest in the stud tournament on the evening of the 10th. Friday the 11th is spoken for, and hopfully Saturday and Sunday as well.

So, lessee... $5500. I'm not sure I'd want to invest that much of my bankroll in big-buyin tournaments, but maybe.

That looks like a pretty interesting vacation, I guess. I could use the off-days for satellites, socializing, whatever. Thoughts?
