Not much poker stuff today, other than to say that I spent all last week multi-tabling the 20/40 and 30/60 games on Party and I didn't play a single live hand or hand of NL. I ran quite well, so now NL is on the back burner again. At least until I run badly at limit again, which, given the nature of limit, should be within another day or two.

No the point of this post is that I'm a happy man. Obviously, Jessica Alba in a bikini is enough to make any man happy, but what really made my day was seeing the man who bagged her. That guy's not Brad Pitt or George Clooney, or Colin Farrell, or whomever. He's just a typical guy. Heck, it looks like he might already be thinning a bit on top (of course, that could just be the combination of camera angle and short hair, but I prefer to think he's actually balding).

Seriously, Me - 5 pounds + a few days of tanning = him. Well, plus eleventy kajillion dollars, too, I'm sure.

But talk about giving hope to average guys everywhere.

More poker and less superficial juvenile fawning next post, promise.

Are you man enough for the around the bicep tatoo though??? And also, you have to learn how to replicate the shit-eating, "Jesus Christ, that is Jessica Alba next to me...and I bagged her" grin he has on his face in that photo.

He's pretty damn hot by himself.

But newsflash, chicks aren't men and we care about things besides looks, which is probably how he got her. Earth shattering, I know.

No one ever complains about bikini posts. And I'm not even an Alba fan.

I'm not sure if you can replicate that grin, unless you actually do bag Jessica Alba. Then there's no way to get it off your face.

And, yes, Stacy is right... chicks do care about other things. Like money.

Or, depending on what kind of chicks you hang with, drugs.

If I really were to bag Jessica Alba, the grin on my face would make his seem like a frown.

As for women liking money, I dunno. My experience has actually been pretty positive in that regard. There's obviously women out there who do care about money predominantly, but they're pretty easy to spot. For most, it seems as long as a guy isn't totally broke, money is pretty much secondary. Or at least, no bigger than any other consideration (looks, personality, ambition, etc).

But who knows, maybe that just means most women are better at hiding their true nature. I'm sure if I traded in my econo-box Sentra for a super-expensive sports car, for example, I might have quite different experiences.

I'm still puzzling over this comment:

I'm not even an Alba fan.

I'm speechless. I don't even know how to respond to this.

I've noticed that the stereotype of women that want guys for money alone seems bigger than the real thing. What Eric said is right, they are easy to spot, and with goood reason. I mean, a guy willing to "buy" a girlfriend probably isn't going for the plain jane in jeans.

I've noticed most women only care so much of money as to whether a guy can pay his own bills. Beyond that, it doesn't matter.

If he is rich, I don't blame her. If I was beautiful and had my choice of guys, I would probably prefer one with financial freedom. He isn't frolicing on the beach with her if he's tied to a desk 40 hours a week.

Alba really doesn't do it for me. I can think of a million other girls. Especially Rachel McAdams.

Mmmm...Rachel McAdams.

And all of you totally miss the mark re: women and money.

Eric, you can have Jessica and I'll take her friend. Let's say we break up the couple.

Okay, then set us on the correct path, O wise one.

Maybe I even have a shot given how little competition I apparently have.

evan : are you Dave in disguise? What's your opinion of Nicole Kidman?

She (Alba, not Kidman) is ~waaayyy~ up there on my "could look at all day" list. Though I wasn't impressed when she went blond for F4.

He's kind of a cutie - nice smile and all that. (heh, the "I'm dating Jessica Alba - w00t!" grin) But for me it's harder to tell about a guy from a still. Would rather see them 'live' to get an idea of their charisma. (like Antonio Bandaras - just so-so in a picture but once he moves and talks... yeppers ;)

Jessica Alba is a total HOTTIE!!!!!

Unfortunately, Eric, you're decision to move to Sin City puts you in the center of a world where most chicks won't give you the time of day unless you have a kajillion dollars.

But, take heart. You're on your way to living like a rock star. I'm sure your poker ability will get you there eventually.

FYI. Check out this website. WWW.WALLY.COM. This is the type of purchase you need to make when bringing in the big bucks. Women will weep and fall to their knees!

I thought LA was the center of that world.

Anyways, Steve, did you just spam my blog??

Spam your blog?

Sorry, don't know what that means.

I'm probably the first or second person to start reading Eric's blog. So no, I'm not Dave. I comment on here alot.

Nicole Kidman is the only redhead in the world I would ever hook up with. I hate red heads, but Kidman is beautiful.
