Weekend round the corner..
Feeling a bit pissed off today.Rangers drew at Livingston last night.They are the worst team in the league and we lost a 2 goal lead.Mr Eck has 2 games to save his job because it just aint good enough.
First thanks to Jordan for the interest in the UK/US sng.( enjoyed your Truckin' story too).
Juice mentioned a Ryder cup type event which sounds good but I'd be happy just to get 10 of us together for one game first as what with schedules and times differences its not proving the easiest game to set up.Would this Sunday be suitable for everyone?
First come first served but if your are interested in a $5 Sng,probably at Royal Vegas please let me know soon!
No poker last night.Mark came up and it was Virtua tennis and Ridge Racer all the way.We had a smoke and I must have been smoking because about 0.15am just as he was about to leave I logged on to Ladbrokes and there was Juice at a 6 max .15-.30 NL table!!! Just then Nacho went crazy,Mrs A arrived back from work and Mark hit the road.I went back to the table and he'd vanished.Hope to see you at a similar table tonight Juice! What did you think of the standard of play?
I read yesterday that Scotland are playing the USA at Hampden in a friendly on Nov 12th.Obviously the biggest sporting event of the year for all Americans ( apart from the blogger sng) and I'm sure nobodys talking about anything else over there! We may even get the Nolan sisters to perform at halftime but no ground level cameras as we don't want any more nipple exposure controversies.( they aint getting any younger)
Interesting article in The Times about a landmark ruling due soon in the UK about poker clubs and their legality.The debate centres on the skill v luck element of the game.If its deemed a game of chance then it looks like the clubs will close.Check out the "Join the debate" section for some very wise words from an East Kilbride online player and add your own feedback.
Popping up to say hello to my old folks tonight and to play some poker online with my Mum.Hopefully she'll make her first real money deposit soon but as it could be my inheritance she's playing with I don't want to give too much encouragement until I think she's ready...
Are non slippable plastic cups the way ahead? Apparently so.How our forefathers survived the workplace drinking from dangerous open top containers I'll never know.
Its 20c ( 68f) outside today.I don't remember Glasgow ever being this warm in October.Normally at this time of year it would freeze the balls off a brass monkey but I was able to walk about without my jacket this lunchtime.
I mentioned getting some poker t-shirts done before and I'm making progress.6 done but the designs look a bit small on a couple so they need redone before I get them up on my site.I got a baseball cap done too but it was more the trucker style hat ( which seems to be the fashion) so I bought a couple of the flatter type to try out my designs on.At this rate my site will go live sometime after hell freezes over ( or Juice wins another nl tourney).
Mrs A has started planning Xmas presents already in the Acorn household.I'll probably start my planning around Dec 23rd as usual and do my wrapping on Xmas Eve in between poker hands.
Step A wants a Nintendo Ds dog type thing.Why she wants one of them when we have a real dog she can feed and walk anytime I've no idea.
Oh heres a Step A joke before I go.
Q-What do you call a judge with no fingers???
A- Justice Thumbs
