It’s almost Christmas

I’m not sure it matters one way or the other, Christmas that is.  If you celebrate the birth of Christ – on Christmas – all I can say is “Go for it!”  I hate the insanity that rolls in with the holiday season, some people are depressed while others are stressed, a few are happy but I’d put that in the under 10 category.

The Blogger’s Tournament

The blogger’s tournament was at Aria on Saturday.  It was my first live tournament in a number of years and it made me very aware of how hard it is to sit for long periods of time at the poker table.  My neck hurt, my shoulders weren’t very happy, and my legs were cramped from the foot rail that runs completely around the bottom of the table.  Let’s face it, I’m getting old-er, and any time I’m confined to a seat for a long period of time, my body isn’t ready to cooperate.

The poker Bloggers are heading for Vegas

This weekend will find those of us that still blog about poker – and perhaps a few that don’t – heading for Sin City.  Count me in that group. I’ve missed the last two years.  This year my son will be here to sit the dog and the household while I’m out gallivanting around in Vegas.

Thanksgiving Eve, the day before gorging begins

I have no way to even begin to think out what is going on with anything and everything. Some days it really doesn’t pay to chew through the ropes, not that this is one of those days. But it started that way when my phone had no cell service this morning but my neighbor who is on the same tracphone service I’m on had service.  I have an iPhone 4s and it did some IOS and carrier updating recently but I had service, until this a.m.

It was nine days ago – the WSOP November Nine

Little Miss Time Management never seems to keep up with everything and the pages in Table Tango reflect that.  Nothing has gone up since I ventured out with the statement that I was going in to watch the November Nine at the Rio.  I did go.  I didn’t stay long. Continue reading

Ash Meadows

My son Dan and I headed for Ash Meadows Preserve on Monday with the Point of Rocks as our destination — I was there with Riot in February of 2009.  We were going to look at the blue pup fish that are an endangered species.  Not to worry, the government shutting down also shutdown most of the roads that would normally allow access to the Point of Rocks and Crystal Reservoir marsh lands and a few other places.

It’s almost midnight

I don’t have any oil to burn. I’ll just rough it until I run out of steam and then I’ll go crawl into my comfy little bed and wait for the Sandwoman to gently carry me off to the land of sleep and nod. Continue reading

Sundays are…

the day to play online poker if you can get in a game without having the feds close it down before you can cash out.  Of course that doesn’t apply to the rest of the world, just those of us that live in the land of the free (major sarcastic rip intended there).

Two Week Update

The last few days are ‘firsts’ in terms of brain activity related to work duties.  Mostly I’ve been in a daze of feel good for a bit, do a few things, eat, feel like shit, exhausted, need a nap, can’t think about anything with a focus on detail, and NOW?  Who knows!  I am much better though.
