Welcome to your Acorn blog....

My good mate Mark has now moved a good few miles away so our regular weekly xbox/ps2 fest wont be quite as regular and this meant I was at a loose end last night.( Mrs A working)I read a few blogs and ( thanks to the link to Manik79 on Waffles blog) watched some of the High Stakes poker clips on you-tube.

I began playing by coming 5th in a ‘Stars $15 turbo after a nasty suckout and moved to Laddys to play a little cash poker before bed.I was very very tired and was actually in bed for 12.45am ( early night for me) but not before dropping about $25 at a few different $20 and $30 tables.I kept the buy-ins low because I knew my concentration was poor.What I’d forgotten is just how bad the players at that level are and how hard they can be to read.( min bets and playing every hand to showdown).

Ok, who wants to know what has been annoying the hell out of me this week? It’s the increasing use of phrases like “It’s your NHS” ,”Your BBC” etc. Ok, if they are mine I’m going to demand “MY” NHS send round a fulltime nurse the next time I catch man flu.( Mrs A did a good job last time to be fair!) and I’m calling the BBC to tell them that as it’s “MY” BBC I wish to make a few changes to the programme schedules.( plenty more poker coming soon!) I am looking forward to seeing an advert for “It's Your Burger King” because I’ll be leaping over the counter at my local BK and helping myself as you do when you apparently own something and it’s “yours”.

Righty, rant over...

Im sure all this "your" buisiness is simply a hang over from manager looking at their businesses from a consumer persective. Apparently its quite empowering. Although in reality its the same on rubbish dolled up in lip stick and high heels.]
