Things I Learned Tonight at Sunday Poker

I was not the token girl tonight, and the gender balance oddly meant there was a lot less gossip than usual. Still some notable discoveries...
  1. Paul McCartney has an album he recorded entirely by himself in his basement in 1979: McCartney II. It is weird and great... and includes a song that allegedly inspired TLC's Waterfalls.
    Did everyone else know this except me?!
  2. Babies aren't ticklish until they are old enough to realize another human is tickling them.
  3. The mayor of Ithaca is a 28 year old Democrat in his 4th year in office, and he's doing an excellent job.
  4. Dog shared-custody makes up the primary clientele of a local LA doggie daycare where my friend takes his dog (which he got with his ex)
  5. Wine and peanut butter pretzels do not taste good together.
  6. Malcolm-Jamal Warner wrote an autobiography called "Theo and Me: Growing Up Ok." And the book jacket unfolds into a glossy photo poster.
    Why our host hadn't had this framed remains a mystery. Also "Growing Up Ok" is a pretty heartbreaking subtitle, no?
  7. Snooping through someone's bookshelf can tell you a lot about them.
  8. I will never be a professional poker player.
    I knew this one already.
