Here's a simple card-counting FAQ to get you up to speed on the basics. Here's the true story of the notorious DD' blackjack team, told for the first time on the fabulous internets. No other team went from a starting investor's bankroll of zero to winning millions of dollars.

i guess if anyone looks at my follows on instagram they'll think i have an eating disorder

2015-05-07 - 8:33 a.m.

I didn't think so much of my stupid smoothie photos that I posted to Insta mainly to host my photos so I could easily post them here in my diary. Actually I thought they were pretty crap but I figured if I photo'd them and put them on the internet, I'd actually follow through with them and do the entire smoothie day. And so I did.

But it also so happened that a few health food bloggers found me and I decided to add a few of the most colorful to my insta timeline. Result: I have a timeline this morning that's like health food porn, Miles Kane and Alexa Chung thinspo, and some random Julian Casablancas fans and a whole lot of bird owners who have birds who love the camera. One of the girls on my Insta is an artist who has canaries -- an entire family of canaries -- that love to post on her paintings and twirl her hair and take baths on camera.

Meanwhile my birds can spot a camera whether it's a traditional 200 to 600 zoom telephoto lens or a sneaky little smartphone...doesn't matter...if they're doing something cute, they quit instantly if I even THINK of snapping their photo.

Oh, and I have Bill Ryder-Jones and Professor Green on my Insta. Mainly because they post a lot of photos, and they're funny. Plus I actually listen to Bill, especially the second one that's sort of a story. I'm afraid with Stephen it's more a matter of I can't believe one man can own so many pairs of shoes...

Anyway, I was just thinking this morning, I think my Insta is pretty quiet and unvisited by anyone who actually knows me...but if they did, let's just hope they don't check out my follows and conclude I'm tryna get more into ana or anything like that. It's just my aesthetic, peeps. Folks of my generation were into skinny.
