Six Years and Counting....

I'm not going to write too much about passing my six year blogging anniversary as I mentioned it in a previous post.I will say that if anyone is to blame for inspiring the mince I've spouted here over the years it's Waffles as the first two blogs I ever read were the now defunct Poker Chronicles ( great blog header that says "Proving that if you put a million monkeys in front of a million computers eventually 65,000 of them will log on to Party") and Waffles incredible lessons on roller coaster bankroll management. Thanks also to the Low Limit Grinder,Jordan at High on Poker and Tripjax for linking me up when I started out and helping ensure I wasn't just talking to myself here!

On the dating front the plan is to go out for a few drinks tomorrow night with a hot looking chick I've exchanged a few short messages with.No real expectations.Just going to see how it goes.

Assuming I'm not hungover, I'll maybe try and get to the casino again on Sat afternoon for the £22 turbo tourney.This time I'll try and leave my donkey ears at home…

I bought the new detective game LA Noire for the PS3 the other day and my Dad is coming over on Sunday to see if we can solve a few cases.I left home at 16 due to family crap caused by him and it took a good few years to rebuild a decent relationship.I see my folks once a week or so and love them to bits but my Dad and I have never really done the going for a pint or sharing a hobby type thing.In fact when I went over to teach him to play poker it was my Mum who caught the bug and now has thousands of low stakes sng's on Stars under her belt!

I'll be back to work on Monday and I'm enjoying it less and less since a new management team started recently.I get allocated four multi-faceted complaints per day to deal with and the only calls our teams take are customers calling back re those complaints.Despite that, our new managers come from a call centre environment and seem determined to implement the same sort of crap they got away with in their previous jobs.Taking away our flexi-time citing non-existent "business needs" and reducing the amount of people that can be on leave at one time just seem to be the start.Can't wait for the "performance management" stuff to start…..

Thanks for reading.Back soon...

Good luck with the lady! Though I don't write as much as I should, I still read when I can. Keep it up!

Side note: my word verification for this post starts with 'bar.' It's actually barsoor. Your drinks with the lady are meant to be!
