So I finally make the big time, and I have nothing notable to write about. I’m such a disappointment. (Again, need that “hangs head in shame” smiley)
I will have something soon though. I have the house to myself this weekend, and in addition to doing some serious thinking (do I want to remain American Airlines or go back to being Big Slick? [Prior to being married, my initials were AK]) I plan on playing some serious poker. I haven’t played in a College Poker Championship tournament in months (they start at 3pm on Sundays – horrible timing for someone who is obsessed with NFL football) so I plan on taking advantage of those this weekend. Plus I have my bankroll to nurse back to health. I just need to keep my head straight and actually think before I do things. Or, as John suggested on many occasions, actually talk it out before taking action in the hand.
School starts on Tuesday…at 9:30 in the morning. Yep, another 9:30 class for me. Cause the one I had last semester went so well! (That was sarcasm…) This one is a little different, it’s not Astronomy which I sucked at, this one is Government, my major. It’s The Politics of Hollywood, and it’s supposed to be a great class. It better be, cause it’s my only class that day, soo…I have a tendency to say screw it and blow things off. However it helps when it’s your major, and you’re in upper-division classes now, so the field is starting to thin, and people are going to actually remember your face and name and all that, so really…ya gotta make a good showing. I ordered my books yesterday and nearly died when I discovered that my other Government class, Presidental Electoral Politics, has FIVE books for it. FIVE. *Gulp* But I’m good enough, and smart enough, and…
I still haven’t made it through Iggy’s latest post. 3rd time will be the charm! And man, my blog roll is growing by the day…soon it’s going to take over this site and have little blog rolls of its own or something. I check every site every day…and then I wonder where the hours have gone. So many excellent writers out there. And I never even checked my own stats until I read BG’s latest post…it kinda got me wondering. And damn…I gots me some visitors! So thanks y’all who stop by, and thanks y’all who comment. I don’t get anyone from the CIA…but I did get someone from the USPS…and various other foreign countries I’ve never even heard of. Which leads me to the announcment that soon I’m going to have to turn on the little doo hickey where you have to type in a number if you want to comment here…like Bill does on his site. I’m getting comment spam daily, and this appears to be the best way to combat it. I hate to do it, but…if you love me, you’ll key in 6 digits to leave a comment. 😀
Speaking of new blogs, shout-out to another poker-playing, Wil Wheaton-loving April (is that freaky or what?? I totally want to meet her!!) at Feeding The Addiction. Also, Shelly at Hella Hold’em (love that name)…I won’t be jealous that she apparently gets on the right hand list in record time…*sniff, sniff* 😉 And last but certainly not least, Swimming with the Sharks – just love his writing style. Anywho…of course Iggy has the full list of all the new ones, these are just the ones that I felt like spotlighting (that does seem to be the rage these days). And of course everything on the roll is poker goodness.
I think that’s it for now. I will be back later with real poker content and let’s hope it’s profitable. 🙂
