I'm not a morning person, though over the last year or so I have had to force myself into the routine of being up early because of my job. It's not that bad but every morning I look at that clock and think to myself or out loud to my dog that I'd rather be sleeping.
Also, the alarm has another annoying side effect and that is waking the dog up so that I have to take him outside and wait for him to do his business.
Not really cool. 5:30 in the morning outside in my boxers and a T-shirt is starting to get a little bit chilly out here in Las Vegas. I guess at least it's not snowing ha :)
Yesterday I came home from work to find that 3 new people have started following me. I've got LVPokerplayer who is a carry over from TBC's blog I do believe and Summer Smith who I knew WAY BACK in high school. The 3rd I am less than 100% sure about but I think is thlf. I am just going to assume that stands for "Totally hawsome, loves fucking." but I could be wrong.
So thank you all for coming along on my little adventure - sadly this is no Big Top Adventure and Paul Reuben will not be coming to play with us.
Yesterday I hit up the gym for the 3rd time this week and pushed myself to 35 minutes before caving and calling it a day. I'll probably do the same tonight and by the end of next week I'm hoping to be able to push 45 minutes. My overall goal is that when I'm doing just the elliptical to be able to do 1 hour per day.
I was going to weigh myself but when I went into the locker room there was a naked guy hogging the "how fat are you" machine. In fact, he was on there entirely too long and trying to stand perfectly still until the metal arm of weight positioning stopped moving 100% and told him how fat he was down to the ounce.
It was kind of annoying. Get on, move the scales and when it starts to normalize BINGO, that's about what you weight. If you need more exact readings then buy a fucking scale and use it at home lardo.
Two more days until my weekend begins and that means two more days until the Aliante tourney. $100 buy in (technically $90 buy-in and $10 dealer add-on, but if you don't take the add-on you're an idiot) and 100% of the $90 buy-in goes to the prize pool.
I want to work on my tournament game (read: develop one) so there is no reason why I shouldn't start playing. Also, if you show up early and play you get an extra $500 in chips for every half hour you play up to a max of an extra $2000. If I can weasel my way out of work just a little early and get seated fairly quickly I should be able to get the full $2000 extra chips.
