No Motivation for Nuttin

It's weird, I take a week off of blogging (basically) and now I find myself with not much to say.

However, here I sit with nothing else to do so lets get to it.

We will start with work where I'll actually have someone else helping me out come Monday.  Er, to rephrase that a bit I'll start training someone to help me out come Monday.  The past two days at work have been pretty hellish on the getting caught up aspect.  My plan was to get everything done for the week so that I could start next week fresh.  No outstanding paperwork or issues or anything to deal with.  Come in Monday morning and make a game plan as to what I'm going to do with the new girl (Oh I hope she's a looker) and how I'm going to do it.  However, as usual, that backfired.  I never even got close to getting half of what I wanted done.
Then at one point during the day yesterday the Store Manager asks me if I have everything in the office caught up and in order.  I state that I should be closer by the end of my shift.  She tells me (again) that the new girl starts Monday and she wants everything to be in order by then.  Asks me if I need any help.
The shift before the new girl starts is the 1st time in 3 months that I actually got asked if I need any help?
WTF?   So, if I were to answer the question now I'd have to say that I'm not even close but we'll improvise.

I've got a bit of an idea about how I'm going to break her into the office, but we'll see how that goes.

As far as Weight Loss - today is Day 13 or something and tomorrow is the end of week number two.  I'm still down from where I was last Sunday which is great, but a few things took away some momentum and in all honesty I'll be perfectly happy as long as I have not gained since the last weigh-in.  Just means I'm going to have to work extra hard this next week to make sure that I get to the goal I want by the end of week 3.

Last night I saw Brave and I really enjoyed it.  It's not my favorite Pixar movie but it was still better than the chaff that non-Pixar Disney has put out over the last decade.  The preview for Monster University really got me excited as I've been waiting for another Monsters movie to come out for quite some time.  There was also a preview for a Transylvania cartoon with the lead voiced by Adam Sandler that piqued my interest a bit.

The WSOP is in town and I've barely played any games - I'm feeling a bit bad about this.  This is prime money making time and instead of doing weird shit like hanging out with friends instead.  My priorities are all messed up and I'm in need of a realignment.  
I know that in order to play in the AVP event tonight I need to hit up The Mirage to register before noon or so today.  I have been putting it off for a week now. I've had time to swing by and do it but the mood has yet to strike me.  I don't know if I just don't feel like parting with the money or if everything else that has been going on has just drained my will to actually play poker.
However, tonight is the night to do it as I'll be able to pal around with Rob, Lightning, Josie and a host of others.  Somebody slap some sense into me please?


  1. Part with the money, or win some maybe... What's the buy-in for that?
