Thursday I felt the tickle in the back of my throat. No, not that sort of tickle, you pervert.
I knew I was heading for some sort of cold. It sucks, I hardly ever get the things but sometimes there's no avoiding it. This was one of those times. I just hoped I could get rid of it Friday to play golf on the weekend. I was already 10+ rounds behind the sickos I play with regularly this year. Yes, that's a lot.
Well, Friday came and went. I knew Saturday morning was a long shot and it didn't surprise... I had to skip golf due to 'illness'. Feh.
I sat on my interweb connection and played Online M'fin Pokar. I played Heads Up Sit & Go's against some Fin prior to noon. Those scandi's really are consistently crazy. By the end of our series of matches I was snap-calling his all-ins with second pair. Good times. I ended up winning 5/8 matches. I then played a Heads-Up Shootout-style satellite into FTOPS HU event. I won the first, lost the second on two beats. Meh. Was far better though... god I hate tournaments. Played some 50NL 6-max, made a buy-in and a bit. I have great clarity in my poker lately, too bad I can't afford to play often due to time constraints.
Today is Sunday. I got up at 7:15 for golf, praying I felt well enough to go. I walked around, I judged my illness and I came to the conclusion it might drag deep into next week if I let myself go play like this. Feh.
No poker either, just did some crazy stuff in Grand Theft Auto 4 world to de-stress and read the interweb.
Really entertaining picture of the day (poker geek style):
This comes to you courtesy of the sweet sweet 2+2 NVG forum. Here's the original. For those who don't know it, the people in the car (pre-gasoline fight) are Jimmy "Gobboboy" Fricke in the drivers seat, Daniel Negreanu in the passengers, Barry Greenstein behind Gobbo and Tom "Durrr" Dwan beside him.
I will note that when it all falls apart next time, I should have a copy of Zoolander to watch. Great movie.
