Just filling space and killing time.
Not much happening on the poker front. I've been idling away the spare hours watching the occasional football game -- hampered by the lack of cable and non-ABC TV reception -- and reading my way through the collected works of Peter Mayle courtesy of the library.
I'm not really sure why I'm bothering. Mayle is a one-theme writer. His schtick is Take one English guy- put him in the South of France- add eating-drinking-cultural misundertandings-hilarity ensues! Not all that much different that John (OMG-it'salawyer-who saves the day) Grisham or Tom (I'm Jack MFing Ryan and I'm here to promote world peace bitches) Clancy among others. Somehow he's managed to publish something like 14 books doing this.
Don't get me wrong. It's not bad, just a bit repetitious. I might even go see the (critically panned so far) movie version of A Good Year this fall ... if Grandma insists on seeing it, that is.

Poker has been a nonfactor lately. I played a few hours of short stack PLO on Saturday while participating in a fantasy football draft. Never was up more or down more than a few bucks, until I got stacked in standard PLO fashion. Flop the wheel, go along for the ride, redraw the nut flush on the river but it doesn't matter because the turn paired the board. So, so standard. Sigh.
While I was at it, I decided to take the five bucks or so I had on one of the other sites and rampage it up. That went nowhere fast. So bad at NL cash games.
Nothing more to say. Nothing to see here. Move along.
