56/75 in The Mookie. I am less than pleased with myself. All my fault, played like a weak-tight fish.

This was followed by me totally donking it up in a $16 Turbo DS on Stars after taking a good lead at my table.

Then I became a card rack in 1/2 shorthanded LHE at Full Contact, to the point where everyone else just left the table. Winning 7+ consecutive hands at showdown is fun.

Then I lost most of those winnings at 0.25/0.50 NL. I hate anything less than 100NL, it's too easy to just say "meh". I'm sure the same can be said about the limits I play at by anybody who regularly plays 5/10 or 25/50.

Maybe no poker tonight. Ha! Who am I kidding?

My best friend is in Vegas for the next few days. I gave her some slots money to waste for me. Maybe that will turn out better than my own gambling efforts of late.

Speaking of Vegas, I still haven't booked anything for June. Maybe I should do that, what with being 1/3 of the way through May. Although a buddy of mine called up the other day to see if I wanted to go for a week with him some time. I highly doubt I could take a week of Vegas though. I love that town, but only in short bursts, even if he does want to do the Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon - two things I haven't bothered to see yet. The rumour is that there's actually stuff outside the city, but how can you see it without neon?

Stuff without Neon.

You need to get laid.

Of you think women have neon to guide you to the "Holy Ground" you are spending too much time at the tables.

Seek help and a model Immediately!

I've been saying that for a while. Maybe I should try saying it to women instead of drinking buddies.

In VEGAS? Doesn't that require a lot of paperwork detailing that I won't catch anything that won't stay in Vegas?

And we don't all work in an industry where strippers walk into our office to chat...

And show their tits off also.

I know you are nothing but jealous.

It's the hard luck life I know!
