On the up

Feeling better after the pain and man flu that I picked up last week. Worked Saturday to try and make up for having Tues/Weds off. One hour of peace on a Saturday easily beats 3 hours of interrupted work during the normal week. Got much more done than expected. Have next week booked off as holiday so I'm really looking forward to that. No major plans apart from some proper grinding hours and will probably do the christmas presents online.

As I was feeling better yesterday I played 12-table cash at $.25/$.50, I had a rush which put me up $80 within about 30 minutes and then got one bad beat followed by one questionable play into a squirrel which brought me back to even. I think I finished the day about $7 up after around 1300 hands. It felt good to be doing that again.

One request… can people stop putting porn on their blogs ! I will be forced to remove you from the links if you carry on cos I can't risk accidentally opening up your obscene blog while I'm at work through google reader !

Battle of Pain & Hunger

Seriously in crappy shape at the moment. I've an infection in a rear molar tooth which has stopped me eating almost everything. Yesterday I managed soup & yoghurt. The right side of my face is swollen from antibiotics (even though google suggests antibiotics are generally useless for teeth infections)

Finally today I will have the pain and fear from the dentist to address the situation after which all will calm save for the pain and fear of the dentists bill and the revelation that I need a "3 year plan" to acheive dental perfection.

Quite keen to play poker but there's no way I could concentrate

New Mobile

My phone is crap, people can't hear me properly on it and it's about 3 years old.

So I'm thinking of getting one of these...

Has anyone got any experience with Samsung i8910 HD ? It looks like a pretty cool phone to me

Mookie Day replaces Hump Day

I very likely won't be awake when this kicks off but for those of you who will be I think you should go play with some like-minded bloggers. After all it is Take Your Kids to The Mookie Day !!

I might register and just fold my way into the money :)

Tell a friend and pass it on !

Clock ticking

Time is running out on my island. Every recent change reduces the quality of life here and in a couple of years I can see it being no better than most of the UK.

This morning I started looking into a Canadian visa, it looks like despite being over 30 now I still qualify on the points scale, so I might as well go to the trouble of submitting an application. Nothing to lose after all !

If anyone's got any advice about this sort of thing I'd love to hear it !
