Duck Down....Jacket

Made it to the Docs yesterday and she gave me some mild diazepam for minor muscle spasms,more pain killers and a sick line for 3 more weeks.I called my work and it looks like my boss will be paying me a mandatory visit next week which is fine by me but also strikes me as a complete waste of time.Maybe he'll bring the big card and collection money my colleagues will have organised in my absence.( turn sarcasm meter up to full please)

It's frustrating because one minute I feel like I'm on the mend and then it hurts some more.That's partly due to the nurofen and co-codamol masking the pain I suppose.

I did pick the car up yesterday and also bought a fine new Icefield Down jacket, but I'm paying for it now and I think I just need to keep taking it easy and give myself a chance to heal properly.

Being off work for so long has given me a lot of thinking time and I find myself actually feeling more positive mentally as a result of the accident, despite being temporarily worse off physically.Perhaps I was starting to come out of a bit of a mental funk anyway.As 2010 approaches it's certainly been an up and down decade for me.It began with so much promise, meeting the ex Mrs A at a Millennium party and embarking upon the longest relationship of my life, and ends with me nearly killing myself in a car crash and eating dinner from a tray most nights.

I'm certainly not pining for a relationship, although I do have some regrets about a few relationships/friendships lost due to simply feeling awkward about what to say after leavings things for too long.

Such is the nature of the internet that I could be dating a new girl every week and indeed I had another lady mail me her number just yesterday.Perhaps she will be the one, but after meeting a few I'm beginning to have doubts over just how effective internet dating can be as you can never tell if any spark you seem to have online will translate into real life.

I'm not complaining about my lot as the decade ends.I'm healthy ( or at least will be in a few weeks hopefully),close to my family,have some great friends,earn over the national average,have no debt other than a tiny mortgage and have the freedom to play poker,eat takeaway meals,watch football,smoke as much as I like and spend my money how I see fit.As far as kids go I'm still in touch with Step A and I'm also really looking forward to becoming an uncle next June.Of course I'm also lucky to own the greatest half Staffie/half whippet mongrel dog that ever lived!

To the poker and I'm really liking Party's new stacking tables feature.I still reckon 4 tabling when smoking fine herb is more than enough but stacking certainly makes life at the felt easier.( though it is in beta mode and does require a few tweaks)

Not a lot more poker to report other than to say that The Bloggerment is open for registration on Stars so get over there and sign up for the game!

Oh and a quick apology to anyone who opened my last post at work and had to click away quickly due to the Countdown clip!

Craghopper Icefield Down Jacket.£65 from Debenhams just now.Hotter than Darvin Moon's run to the WSOP main event final table....

I thought an "Icefield Down Jacket" was another one of those Xbox war games - maybe set in antartica.

Cheers United.Good to see you back blogging again too btw.

Anon: I think I'd have guessed who even without seeing your name in the hh! Next time just shove a monster like this preflop and the villain will snap fold his KK...

Good to see you're keeping your pecker up despite not having the best time of it recently.

If it's any consolation, I sustained the most embarrassing and bizarre football injury ever this weekend.

After showing huge bottle to step up to take an early pen for my side, I managed to pop my leg out of its socket in the run up!!!

Ridiculously, I somehow still struck the ball hard enough to see it trickle in to the bottom corner... The keeper just stood there bemused, watching my writhe in agony on the floor!

All the best.
