I don't think I've been in a proper mindset for poker of late.

Last night I played in the Monkey Tourney and went out 9th. I had fun, that's what matters for that one. That said, I kept swinging in out of focus. When I was paying attention, I was on, but then I got distracted and let myself fall behind. Bad move.

Then fired up a couple turbos, and while I really liked how I played one of them I had nothing to show for it.

So instead I watched Heroes and worked on ripping the Boomstick scene from one of my 3 Army of Darkness DVDs to use as my phone's wallpaper. I suppose I could have done something more productive... like ironing, laundry, sweeping, mopping, dusting, cleaning, tidying, or playing Guitar Hero. Ah well.

I went into the MATH on Monday a little bit rushed, and never got into a groove. It showed.

Tonight is the Mookie. With only 9 TOC seats left to win, it's really starting to be crunch time. I expect we'll be back up over 100 runners this week, which suits me fine. The thing is, I keep thinking of all the other things I need to get done (see the list above). That, and I haven't made myself a good meal in a week, and I'm starting to feel it.

So the plan for tonight is simple: haircut (getting shaggy), get home and start up dinner, do some chores, finish dinner, eat dinner, more chores, guitar hero, and then Mookie it up. Somewhere in there I need to get my head in the game.

Which could be hard after the shitty sleep I had last night.

But hopefully a solid dinner will help. I've got a hankering for steak.

With a rub of sundried tomato pesto, alderwood smoked salt, and fresh cracked black pepper.

Side of sweet potato fries, all spiced up.

And whatever I have kicking around in the vegetable department. I think I've got some broccoli. Maybe some zucchini too, but it's probably seen better days. Peppers for sure.

I'll probably have some of the Grand Marnier and lemon semifreddo I made a while back for dessert. Perhaps with a strawberry jam blondie.

Nothing like a good meal to get you ready for hours of staring at a computer screen.

Last night was leftover tandoori chicken pizza, and some Pillsbury crescent rolls stuffed with honey-garlic elk sausage and parmesan reggiano, and all the leftover sausage. Tasty as they were, there was minimal effort required, so no cooking zen achieved.

Then I'll Gigli. No... wrong mindset. Then I'll dominate the game and take first without anybody coming close to contending. Final table with over 100k in chips, heads-up with 95% of the chips. Over in 2 hands. OOOOOOOO YEAH!
