    My sister and her husband met me at NoMad and we went to La La Noodle but didn’t get any noodles. La La Noodle, more like Pa Pa Panda Express.

    I like Panda (don’t kill me @Jsmile898 ), but Panda isn’t $200 for three people.

    Woman next to me at baby cow kept getting baby cows of her own and kept leaving her machine and crossing to the tables to talk with her friends. Thankfully she didn’t give me the responsibility of watching her machine, she left money in it and her phone and a drink to do that for her. And a crumpled receipt on the chair, which definitely said this machine is taken.

    It’s a busy thoroughfare (yesterday, Uber driver Tony pulled out all the stops by taking Cicero (home of Saul Goodman) backroads plus the Midway empty back entrance and we passed a sign that said NO THOROROFARE — a shoot-for-the-stars mangling that I had to sound out to decipher and looked more like a new FDA-approved drug), so any number of people — perhaps the ones WITH LIT CIGARETTES IN THEIR HANDS IN A NONSMOKING CASINO — could’ve grabbed at least her phone, at most cash her out and keep the ticket.

    And is it bad to say that I kind of wanted that to happen, just to see the drama unfold.

    Ran out of money and slinked back to the room at 4am, then picked up a crazy session of online blackjack.

    My MO is to bet $25, win, bet $50, win, then flat $50. Any loss, I drop back down to $25.

    This method brought me -$1000, so I stayed at $50 and turned it around. And by turning it around, I mean flipping on my other side on the bed and losing another $1k.

    I kept playing until the dream streak where I don’t increase my bet (because in my sleep-deprived head, I need to play as fast as possible to not lose time in the streak). The rarest of rare dream streaks where doubles actually work (well, at this online site, double downs tend to get you a low card, and you hope the dealer busts). During a streak like this, I bump up the bet to $100 and flat until three losses in a row.

    Yeah, it’s all illogical but try falling asleep while playing and find you’ve hit on 20, you’ve split 5s vs. dealer 10, and all manner of fat finger mistakes because you should be asleep. If this unregulated game is rigged, their algorithm will have a tough time figuring out my strategy.

    Miraculously, recovered that $2k. Would’ve stopped but oh so close to even.

    Then down $1k again but pressed through the down streak until getting it back.

    Then one more time repeated (yeah, I never learn to just leave), then actually ended up $600.

    All within an hour, and I then passed out with all the lights on and the windows cracked open.

    Only to be awake 3 hours later.

    That last post looks like the same repeated photo, but it’s the view from the bedroom and living room. I guess just a few steps doesn’t change the view much.

    No remembered dreams, probably no REM state, but here’s a dream a few days ago that I texted my sister:

    I had a regular thing about chopping off my right arm because it got in the way while sleeping. Then I’d sew it on again. Then one day I awoke and the arm was reattached but badly. Must’ve attached while sleeping. Then I had to pull it off and rotate a bit to attach the right way and it was painful, with skin stretching. ​
