This is Getting Tiresome

I skipped the MATH last night to have some comfort food and see Iron Man. Great movie. Enought action and badassery to make it awesome, but not so much to make it boring. Robert Downey Jr. should just play every superhero. Okay, maybe not She-Hulk. The sequel should be awesome.

I applaud Marvel for taking control of their movies instead of letting studios fuck them up.

I'll be skipping the Skill Game tonight to go buy a suit. Actually, I might be back in time for it, and since it's HOE (I think), I'll probably play.

Yup, buying a suit, tremendously exciting. One of my best friends is getting married in a few weeks... for the second time. I'm in the party... for the second time. A bad omen? Who knows. I wish them the best of luck. After his last disaster, he needs aomething stable and happy. Regardless, it requires a new suit, as my current one is charcoal, not black. Hugo Boss? Armani? I'd go custom, but I've put this off too long to get it done in time.

Okay, let's talk poker. I know I'm not the only one who can't win a race on Full Tilt anymore. I've seen many other posts bemoaning losing streaks right now. I'm pretty sure it's also affecting my play, which only exacerbates the problem. I'm tightening up way too much and then being forced to play marginal hands for fewer chips when the blinds catch up to me.

If I find any time in the near future, I'll be deconstructing my play over the past few weeks. I need to see where I'm going wrong. Right now I don't have the focus, patience, drive, or time to look that deeeply. Instead, I'm guessing. I tighten up. I loosen up. I play more aggressively or less agreessively. I lower the stakes. I raise the stakes. The results don't change though. One thing I am doing is reading just fine. I'm also predicting just fine - as in, "They have QQ, and will flop a Q to beat my AA." I grow tired of this. I'm getting near the reload point, which should not be the case at all.

What I really, REALLY, want, is to spend a weekend sitting on my ass at home. That won't be this weekend. It could be next weekend. It sure won't be the one after that, or the one after that, or the one after that, or the one after that, and very likely not the one after that. Yes, I'm booked until July, and probably beyond. I like having friends and things to do, but sometimes one needs to retreat into one's cave.

When it gets like that (overloaded with social committments), I'll sometimes book a day off work, just to do excactly what you said...hole up at home.

Don't tell anyone else that you're available, just wallow in the alone time!
