As most will know, I have not been doing much in the poker circles lately. I’ve been finishing bits and pieces at home and relaxing most of the time just watching TV and whatever.
I have been doing a bit of reading though – and not poker related. I’ve been reading ‘Digital Fortress’ by Dan Brown – yeah, the same guy who penned ‘The DaVinci Code – and I have to say, I’ve hardly put it down. One of those books that drags you in and you just want to keep reading. I’m even cramming in a few chapters at 5.30am when I get up for work! What a sad life I lead, eh?
Onto other things….. I’m a huge Glasgow Celtic fan (football, or soccer as some would say!), but it’s not been a great week for the team. Last Wednesday, they went out of the UEFA Champions League, losing 1-0 to the mighty AC Milan after extra time. Then on Sunday, they lost to our mighty and unsightly rivals, Glasgow Rangers by the same result. Have to say, I wasn’t that bothered losing to Rangers as we have all but got the league wrapped up and have done since October last year! But it’s always good to have bragging rights after a game like this. But there’s still one more ‘Old Firm’ encounter to come this season so there’s still a chance to grab those bragging rights back!
Onto what I’m up to this week…..
I plan to get back into playing some poker this week. Our league games are kicking off a bit earlier this week due to the daylight savings kicking in in the USA. I have money in a site that I’m desperate to get out, but they have a restriction that you have to gain a certain amount of ‘points’ before you can withdraw any money! Now to me, this sucks big time! I can see the point if my money was gained through freeroll winnings, but not money I’ve won with the cash I DEPOSITED!!! Anyhoo, I’m almost at the points target so should hopefully get my money out by the weekend.
I will also be researching my next poker article for the blog, which I should have posted for the weekend. Not decided on a topic yet, but the latest issue of PokerPlayer magazine (UK version) dropped through the door this morning, so I’ll look at that for some inspiration.
Other than that, I’m in the process of trying to get rid of a little ailment I have….. athlete’s foot! I have to say, this is a scourge to the human race. It has to be the most annoying, itchy and sore (from scratching the itch!) ailment I’ve ever had. A total pain in the butt. Serves me right for not seeing to it sooner though. But now, I’ve got the stuff to put it all right, so hopefully, goodbye athlete’s foot!
