Like a Rolling Stone..

Looks like it may be time for a change of career.I saw the full page advert in the Metro the other day for a Comic Relief t-shirt featuring those old comedy favourites,Morcambe and Wise with red "comic relief" noses painted on.Retro t-shirts are popular at the moment ( I like my own "Mr Messy" one from Next),but what caught my eye was that it said at the foot of the advert that the Morcambe and Wise design was the work of top clothes designer,Stella McCartney.Easy peasy.I have found a suitable photo of those other comedy legends "Little and Large" ,bought some plain white t-shirts and I'm now ready to become a top clothes designer!

As I approach nearly 1000 posts and 4 full years of blogging I'm wondering what direction this blog is taking these days.I called it a "poker and life" blog when I began in order that I wouldn't be restricted to writing about poker and I've enjoyed being able to go off on other tangents at times.I also read most other blogs via a reader and don't get to comment as often as I'd like on some of the excellent stuff being posted by the bloggers linked on the right of this page.

I reckon I'll stick to poker,daft rants,a bit of personal stuff and of course excellent advice and lifestyle tips...like don't attempt to shave your unruly sideburns after smokin' da herb.I ended up with a cut nose and sideys about as even as a Heads Up match between Ivey and Tuff-fish.

On the poker front I finally got back to winning ways last night and hopefully I can stay on that track.I ran a bit better than I have recently and I was also determined to "grow a set" and stop feeling sorry for myself.I did sleep well last Saturday night but I can't say losing over $500 in one night didn't affect me at all.With a bit of luck my gulp limit ( the amount I can lose in one night without wanting to top myself)has risen and the next time I'll cope better.

Ok,the ex Mrs A is away visiting her brother down South and I have Nacho until next Wednesday.The s-man is popping over shortly and the Nach needs a walk!

Here's an old Paul Simon classic...

Congrats on your 1000th post. Think of all the joy and happines you've brought to the world.

I deleted mine as Juice said I was an evil right wing cunt.

If you plan to do Little and Large there must be a market for Cannon and Ball as well :)

Nice milestone Acorn, congrats - still a great read after all those years.

Remember thinking of retro t-shirts a few years back after seeing 'Frankie Says' t's on ebay going for 25 quid a throw... go for it!

Cheers, Mark
