So friday night , Audra, and I went to see Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy at the Fenway theatre. First off, nobody bothered to check to see if there was a game Friday night. Not only was there a game, it was a Red Sox vs. Yankees game, so it was a complete madhouse trying to park, etc. in the area. The film was surprisingly good, given how awful the trailers made it look… I thought that all of the humor would have been contained in the trailer, but it wasn’t really the case. Sure, it was stupid, but it was also amusing. And Christina Applegate is a hottie. After the movie we went to Sol Azteca for some mexican, but most of the time was spent by me missing Casa Mexico.
Saturday morning I drove over to Cambridge to pick up and Lund (from work) and driving to Foxwoods. We got there at noon, but it took me 2 hours to get seated at a $4/8 Limit Hold’em table. We played until 2am, and when I had doubled up my buy-in (up 200 bucks). I would have been up closer to 400, but I think I recognized that I was getting tired a bit too late and lost a bunch of money towards the end of the night on marginal play. I had a very fun day at the table though, and I think I am finally getting a little bit better at the pokemon.
Sunday was the SNFC, and we went to see Dr. Strangelove or… at the Brattle. I love that film, and hadn’t seen it in a few years, so it was nice to be able to do so on the big screen. It’s the 40th anniversary of the film, and it does a better job of conveying the cold war tension of the day better than many other documentaries.
