Being the brave blogging martyr that I am, man flu will not prevent me updating my poker exploits.Not much to report really as I’ve sensibly not played very much.Money not lost is money saved in this case as the games I did play were fairly half-hearted efforts.I did play one $15 turbo last night and instead of my usual raise or fold game I was tempted into limping more often and calling raises which is not my usual style and didn't work very well.
I have mainly stuck to $6 sngs with only a wee 3rd place in an 18 player game to show for the few I’ve played.I did win my first table at a $2.20 Sunday Mill triple turbo shootout but I managed to blow it heads-up in the second when I slow played my flopped J9 on a J 9 4 board,only to allow the villains J10 to hit a 10 on the river to knock me out.
Mrs A is working tonight so I'll be hitting the tables later for some donkery.I'm off to the Gers game on Sat and on Sunday Mrs A ,Step A and I are heading to my parents for dinner as it's Mothers day and also Mrs A's birthday on Tues.I might still be a bit stuffed up with my man flu but at least I'm not back to work until the 26th.( did I mention I was going to the Dam?!)
Ok,I'll save my rant on why I think us motorists should be allowed to attach AK47's to our cars and use them to mow down cyclists who ignore red lights and act as if they've never read a highway code for another time.
I wont harp on either about the inane pathetic training package I completed at work this week on the new age discrimination laws ,which said nobody should even send a birthday card with
a jokey type "You're over the hill" message, as the receiver could be offended and disciplinary action could result.( ok my blood sugar must be low so I damn well will harp on!).
These days taking offence has become a feckin ( better not write "fuckin" incase someone gets fired for reading an inappropriate word at the workplace) national pastime for the weakminded."Ahh but it's all about how a person perceives a comment" ( or birthday card to use the example) they say.Rubbish.Use common sense,get a grip and as we say in Glasgow "Gies peace".
I could go on and on ( oh yes!) but it's time for some dinner and poker.....
