Highs n lows
I'm not really in the mood for a blog post.After spending time with Rosie,poker and writing up my every thought on the game just don't seem very appealing.I'd written about how I only had 2 games left to complete a set of 20 and how I was hoping to get onto the Stars Planet Earth leaderboard.In the end ( despite Rosie sleepily asking how my game was going at 3am late Fri night when I didn't even have the laptop on!) I didn't play those last two games.
Sunday morning and Rosie leaving came around far too quickly as usual.Usually I don't sleep much the night before big football games due to prematch nerves.This time I hardly gave the game a thought. I just hope Rosie can book up again soon and that the weeks will fly in!
The Old Firm game could have gone better.My cousin and I were 5 minutes late into the ground ( queued alongside Newcastle player,Alan Smith) and missed celtcs first goal which apparently the replays show was offside.We came back to lead 2-1 but the orcs won 3-2 in the end to leave them 5 points ahead of us.We still have 3 games in hand ( 3 points for a win) however and I'd rather be in our position than theirs.Our biggest match of the week is on Thursday night and with the players we have out injured,it's going to be tough to get a result in Florence and make the Uefa cup final in Manchester on May 14th.
Today I arrived into work to find the girl who sits next to me in tears due to the sheer pressure of her current workload.My own work is piling up too and although it's only work,that horrible feeling of having too many balls to juggle and not enough time to juggle 'em is creeping over me too and I don't like it!
My mobile phone battery was dead all day,I spent 50 minutes trying to find the parcel depot to pick up my new laptop keyboard,the frozen Yorkie pud I'd taken out of the freezer and put in the fridge this morning was still half frozen when I got home,the woman who barged in front of me at the ATM had her card in and out three times ( by third time my head was close to exploding!) and finally the King prawn chow mein I've just eaten was the most bland and disgusting meal I've eaten in a long time.That apart,it's been a fine day...
Not much to report on the poker front.I'm feeling totally exhausted this week as well as being on a downer and that combination does not make for good poker.Thankfully I've been sensible enough not to play much although I will do a quick end of month stats post tomorrow.
Oh, I did play in Sundays BritBloggerment and thanks to everyone else who played too.I came 7th after running QQ into KK preflop.Congrats to WeeGem who took it down.
Ok,I've tried gripping the steering wheel and just yelling as loudly as possible.Now I'm off to cheer myself up by whistling this .....
..and watching John Flecks fine goals in last weeks 3-1 Youth Cup final win v them...
