Playing in the Mookie for the first time in a whilez. Enjoying a hot mug of decaf Chai, latte style. Sitting in my new comfy computer chair - one of the best investments I've ever made, even though it was only like $120 on sale. I got The Montbrook from Staples.
One bummer about playing in my comfy chair is that I don't have Poker Tracker on this computer. Boo.
Sweet! Doubled up early (KK vs AJ, held up).
There's one game left in the season in the online poker league I play in. Had I not missed a couple games due to work, I can guarantee I'd be in the running for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. As is, I'm a couple spots outta the loot with just the one game left. Still, it's fun to have a regular game, as much as I wish it was a live game. I even made it out to the casino this month, but chose to donk around at 3/6 limit (though I do love me a full kill game).
Now, I'm donking around the Mookie :)
I will get a chance at some live poker this Sunday, at a new-to-me local game. Me likey.
In other news, I do believe I'm holding all of the documents I need to do my taxes this year. So early! I might even file before February! Awesome sauce.
I'm still waiting for someone to say that I'm not the only one who likes pickles on salad. I cannot be the only mutant out there.
I'm gonna go read Runners World for a while... biab.
Now THIS looks like the solution to my treadmill boredom! If only I can get it on my iPod... VirtualActive.
First break... I'm 5 of 16. Meh.
Half hour later... 6 of 11. Done reading Runners World. I've had pocket 4's a zillion times tonight. No floppie for me.
Damn it. I'm gonna go back to folding.
Actually, I should turn into aggro-maniac. Heh. As if.
I highly dislike playing short-handed. But I am up to 2 of 10.
Final table! So now it's like a SnG except uneven starting loot :)
I'm getting a headache and I wanna go to bed. That never bodes well for my poker game. Who calls an all-in with KQ? Sleepy me. I'm hungry, too. Cranky is soon to follow.
Break #2. 3 of 9. Guess I'd better go get a snack.
Well, there goes 160 calories I'll wish I hadn't eaten, come scale-time tomorrow. (Chobani Strawberry Banana Greek Yogurt, if you must know). Chobani is my favorite Greek yogurt. I love Greek yogurt - don't really eat regular yogurt anymore. Actually, I don't really eat dairy anymore, except for yogurt. If it weren't for yogurt, I'd be vegan. Even more so than cheese, yogurt is the one thing I haven't desired to give up yet.
I even found a creamy replacement for my coveted ranch dressing - if I were to go full-on vegan. Mmm miso dressing... but I love yogurt. Sometimes it's my breakfast side-kick when I know I've got a long stretch before lunch. Other times, it's my late-night snack, when I just need enough fuel to get through another hour or two before bed. (I tend to eat a light dinner, so if I eat it too early, or stay up too late, I get hungry!) I'm fairly certain that I'll give up the yogurt someday... but not today.
Hell, the ranch dressing in my fridge right now is a yogurt-ranch dressing. HA!
And with the blinds putting me around 12xBB, I'm just about nearing push-or-fold mode.
I've been trying to make my own dressings lately, because I eat at least one giant bowl of leafy greens every day, and commercial dressings tend to have a bunch of crap in them. Even when I go organic with the dressing, they're not as whole-foods as I'd like. I made one decent one so far, a cucumber dill dressing, but it works better as a salad topping than the actual dressing. Anybody have any killer salad dressing recipes?
And... out in 4th. That KQ hand zapped my will to live. Tomorrow is another day.
