Just for me and my dog
Managed to find the classic Kiaora cinema ad from my youth. Not sure if the link will work as I'm a total e-tard but here goes anyway.Its too orangey for crows.....
Finished work last night and after grabbing a bite to eat headed off to Ibrox for the big game.3-2 to Rangers after scoring the winner with 5 mins to go.Cue absolute bedlam and delight.We probably didn't deserve to win despite leading 3 times as Porto played a good game and have some real quality about them.I can hardly speak today after all my shouting and singing last night but its well worth it. Nice to see Chelsea win too.
Just had a customer call for a colleague who wasn't available.When I said I would request a callback the customer asked if it would be soon as he'd had a heart attack and was waiting for an ambulance.I did ask if maybe it would be better to deal with his complaint at a later date but he insisted on holding till my colleague was free.Another customer whose nuttier than a squirrels fart.
Not much poker content again today as I didn't play last night when I got back.Just logged on and caught up with a few blogs and match reports.
My manager in a previous job used to talk about being in "holiday mode" before and after a break from work and there's some truth to that.I don't want to carry that attitude onto the poker tables as its far too unforgiving an arena for that.
Now to my mini rant on pretentious musical terms.The UK daily free paper ( Metro) has a section called "On my Ipod" where an artist or celeb ( I hate celeb culture) gives their 6 favourite tracks with a short description.Maybe I'm just getting old but I'm not about to moan about how theres no melodies today and its all thumping bass and electronic beeps as some of my fav tunes are dance/techno but reading DJ Spookys choices and descriptions made me laugh and I thought I'd share some of the pish he spouted.
"What can I say about Sun Ra? ( whatever ye like I've never heard of him)."He's the master of the inverted dreamworld of absract jazz.He was always a channel for otherworldliness and jazz still hasn't caught up to him"
Back to the inverted world of absract NL holdem soon but heres another gem."The track's broken beat and kinetic bass flips the whole hip hop equation on its head.Rhythm is such a regimented situation these days and Sa-ra breaks it down-literally"
One last piece of psuedo trendy nonsense speak for you." Arto has always been good at comveying delicate and bizarre senisbilities that occupy the same creative space at the same time.Its hard to balance the paradox but Arto manages this masterfully"
Aye I'm sure he does.
Needless to say I'm not about to rush out and buy Sun Ra or Artos latest cd......
Damn I hate it when blogspot eats half a post.Grrrr.
Picked up my poker t-shirts at lunchtime and I may be biased but I like 'em.Looked for a shop with stock of the Sony PSP but they all seem to be sold out.Just as I decide I want one they sell out.Typical. My tennant cancelled the plumber today as he was going out so hopefully the toilet flushing problem can't be too bad.

Here a couple of stories from The Herald that raised a titter..
A pretty pass:Our bus driver stories reminded John Traynor in Glasgow of being on an Arriva bus in the city when a little old lady came on and showed her bus pass to the driver and waited for her ticket. As Arriva is the only bus company to ask for a destination before issuing a concessionary fare ticket, the driver asked where she was going.She looked a little bewildered, and the driver repeated his request saying: "I've got to know where you're going so I can give you a ticket."Fellow passengers tried to keep their faces straight as she leaned over to the driver and told him: "A'm gaun' tae visit ma sister."
Off the wall:Ahh the old ones are the best ones. Labour Party chairman Ian McCartney showed his pawky Scots wit by telling the TUC conference yesterday how prudent chancellor Gordon Brown really is. Ian said he had called round at the Brown family home in the summer to find him stripping the wallpaper in the front room."Decorating?" Ian asked."No, moving," Gordon replied.
Happy birthday to Nacho who was 1 yr old yesterday.The wee one and her friend made him a cake and a card to celebrate.
Only a couple more days of blogging before Mrs A and I are off to Gran Canaria. I may be able to get Net access over there but will probably just take a complete break ( stop cheering at the back) from my blog and poker.
When you start using your blog to wish your dog a happy birthday a break is almost certainly a good idea....
