Aghh ,hit the publish button by mistake! Apologies if you read this post on a reader before I deleted and tried again!
Not much going on this week.I did receive a vaguely threatening letter from my workplace asking that I get in touch to arrange a meeting with the head honcho re their concerns about my fitness and "potential ability to carry out your work".I also had a call from my new manager who tried to assure me the letter was standard.I'll speak to the Union before calling the boss on Monday.I still have a painful lump at the base of my back and will probably pay for my own ultra-scan if I don't get an appointment card through from the NHS very soon.My new manager also mentioned they are offering everyone a years salary to leave again and I suppose taking that would be a last resort if I can't get fit and it looks like they're going to fire me.
To the poker and after a good start playing Rush poker my AK fell to 1010 and my JJ lost to AK to set me back a couple of $50 buy-ins.I did manage to claw most of that back late last night,playing 400 hands before bed.
Here's a quick Pokertracker Hud question for my more techie readers.On Stars if I fire up four sngs and start the HUD I have to sit in the seat Stars allocates me as the HUD stats don't move if I change seat.If I do move everyone has someone else's stats showing instead of their own.It's possible to right click and move the stats manually to the correct player but that's an awful lot of messing around when 4 tabling.Any ideas anyone?
On the subject of techie stuff the Blogger format allows videos to be posted.My Mum sent me an audio file ( amr. if that means anything) of my new nephew/nieces heartbeat and I keep getting an error message when trying to post it here.None of my family read my blog ( though I did give my sister the url a while back)and I realise it's of no interest to readers but I'd love to somehow embed the file into a post to keep.I don't do guest posts but I like the idea of giving my forthcoming relative an early start in the blogging world! Again,any ideas appreciated!
Other answers my knowledgeable readers may know? Does anyone know whatever happened to Surflexus of the DearPokerdiary blog? He's not posted since Aug '08 and I've been wondering about his absence for a while now.He played a few Brit Blogger games back in the day and used to comment regularly here and on other blogs. I nearly asked Kat ( also a Canadian blogger) at last weeks Bloggerment table, but I thought I'd look like an idiot if I'd missed any really bad news etc! ( hope not obviously)
It looks like I may have to set my alarm for an early start this Sunday to cheer on Andy Murray in his Aussie Open Final v Federer.He's in the best form of his life at the moment and although beating the greatest tennis player of all time won't be easy I reckon the wee lad from just up the road can do it! Gaun yersel Andy!
Righty I'd better get back to the poker tables and try and earn enough to let me keep up with my latest addiction.Honestly do yourself a favour reader and treat yourself to some Silver Needle white tea.I get it from Adagio and have just placed another order.The taste is a dream,it's benefits are incredible and it's guaranteed to make you run better at da pokers.
I'm off to brew up.Back soon...
