Hey Antiphile you Okay Mate?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

 

Ben: I'll have the lappie connected next week so I'll be able to track down your email addie then and drop you a note. Using this phone to type is a bloody nightmare.

 

Ob Von Blob: You should drop in to the Treasury tomorrow. Go to the craps tablr in the arvo and just ask one of the staff there where Phil is (Often at the table or having a fag -- and if I can't find one I'll be having a cigarette.)

 

But seriously, if you can give an indication of time, I can let the staff know where I can be found. Would love to meet up for a drink.

I actually will be heading into town tomorrow arvo, so that might just work. I have a party on at said pub at 6pm but was planning on heading in mid-arvo after I do some kegging and other bits and bobs around here. At a guess I would probably say about 3-4pm I'd get in.

 

Edit: By the way, I shouldn't be too hard to spot. I always wear black jeans and a denim battle jacket (vest) with a big Judas Priest back patch on it, either cowboy boots or Chuck Taylors and a big black newsboy cap (except the casino don't let me wear that inside).

No probs. I'll be the one one in the LBD with flats. Hang on, ignore that. I'm not working tomorrow. See you there, Sir Otto.

Alrighty, sounds like a plan. I'll be wandering around aimlessly at the aforementioned time carrying a black hat and a beer, most likely. lol

I feel a bit rude interrupting the craps game...if you see this I'm either in and around the live wire bar or on the smoking deck, but I might just ask them soon anyway...

By the gist of antiphile's post I gather Brunhilda has finally reached the end of her tether & given our mate the order of the boot.

 

That or something equally traumatic has happened to see our mate spending excessive amounts of time in a place where luck & hope overrides common sense as the occupants of the establishment try to beat the odds & walk out with more cash than they enter with.

 

The odds all favour the house of course, but desperation & the desire to make a quick buck or turn one's luck around often override common sense.

 

Not that I'm a man without vices, just gambling isn't one of them.

I'll leave it to Phil to decide whether or not to tell us all what's happening, but we did catch up yesterday arvo for a few beers and a yarn, and it was really good. It was nice to put a face to the name and catch up in person. He is ok though, hopefully he'll be back on the forum more soon.

Good evening again, to all and sundry. As the Otter mentioned, there was an enjoyable few hours spent yesterday with one of the no-hopers trying to have a chat over some less than spectacular beers. Admittedly I was a bit surprised by his 2 heads and 13 fingers, but once we got him some paper bags a good time was had, at least by me.

 

I think I've totally confused the poor man on the way to lose money at craps, but perhaps that's a good thing.

 

And I haven't forgotten you, Ben. I'll be in contact through the week. Time to get back to my midlife crisis so hope you all take care,play nicely, and brew up a storm. Catch you soon (ish)

All good buddy.

I'm down the Gold Coast at the end of April and keen for a beer if you are around.

Trust him to come up with something like that to describe having a few beers... lol It was a fun arvo though. And yes the craps was quite confusing, although at least I know what you don't want the dice to roll... wink

Hey Phil,

 

If you're getting over the bland beer offerings at the casino and happen to log in and see this, there is a beer fest on tomorrow (Saturday) at the Shafston Hotel at East Brisbane which will have plenty of the good stuff. It starts at midday, but I'll be there about 2-3pm or so. Food trucks and stuff too. Be good if you are able to make it :)

Been wondering the same.. I have been in the casino a few times lately but not seen our old mate in there.

 

Mind you, these have been in the early hours of the morning... lol
