Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.
- Philip K. Dick

I believe in looking reality straight in the eye and denying it.
- Garrison Keillor

Found those to be an interesting pair of quotes.

I played a horrible game last night. I found my horseshoe early on, and then lost my balls in the later stages. I raised JJ in MP to have Smokkee re-raise all-in on me from the blinds. I ended up folding, not wanting to cut into my stack so deeply. Then I raised with 77 from the SB to have NumbBono push from the BB with KQo. I called and lost when a K spiked on the river. Then I raised for 1/2 my small stack with QJs, the BB pushed and I called to find myself facing 33. 3 on the flop sealed that. My inability to win a race continues, but I keep going back to the JJ hand, and wondering if I was ahead, and if so, by how much.

Riverchasers is tonight. I've lost track again, but I think we're in a non-NLHE week. So it depends what the game is before I decide to play or not. There's also a variety of things I need to get out of the way (like my now overdue taxes, and last year's waaaay overdue taxes) that trump poker. So we'll see how it plays out.

I should also figure out Vegas. The 2nd weekend is looking like a pretty well-attended time, but I'm just feeling a bit off about going. I'm not sure why. Probaby because my gambling mojo has been waaaaay off of late. I'll be hitting the Fallsview on Saturday though, so that might change my mind.

My fav reality quote is from one of the Mythbusters guys:

"I reject your reality and substitute my own."

I'm planning on Fallsview on Sat. too.. might see you there.
