It's kinda sad. I had a great time up North, and I came back thinking, "Okay, I'm happy now; I've come to peace. I can just come back and be friends and be content." And I can't even have her as a friend.

Someday, I'll learn how to deal with people without rubbing them raw.

.. More likely, I'll just learn better how to avoid people that I'd rub raw. It was only because I strayed from my normal path that I became "friends" with her anyway.. perhaps I should stick to where I belong.

Okay, so the $65 buy-in game is on the 26th. I think I'm free that day, but if you know something I'm supposed to be doing, please tell me.. x_x

I'm probably going to the $30 game tonight. I doubt I'll be able to do as well as last time, but it's worth a shot. I'll try to play carefully. x_x


I was first out. I didn't give myself enough time to get into any sort of "groove" - I'm normally either out really quickly or in till the end, depending on if I get all the crappy stupid playing out of my system quickly enough or not. I didn't tonight. Luckily (for me, not for him), Bobby made some stupid mistakes and was out third, so we got out of there early - we were out by 10. I played a game of darts before we left and won - but the only reason that I won was because you had to get to 0 exactly to win (we both started with 300, and she was at 3 when I was at like 196.. but she couldn't get down to 0, and I did).

There was a bit more smoking there than last time, but still not bad - but still bothered me, as I don't particularly like any smoking around me. (Oh, and the game was only $20 this time, instead of $30 like last time. And we had a full 8 people.) And as Bobby has never won there, he doesn't plan on coming back - and I'm not going there without him, so that keeps me away from the smoking. :)

I'm still up $95 from all the poker I've been playing, and $70 of that is from Tim's games, so.. yeah. I'm 1 for 2 there. :P But not coming back, seemingly.

Not sure what I'm going to do about the big game. There'll be lots of side games running, but they might well be played just with cash and could well get to be more expensive than the main game.. so I don't know. But I've got a bit to think about it.

That's about it, really. Put in some work on the site today, but nothing up yet. Gonna put a bunch of stuff up at once, if I finish stuff tonight or tomorrow. But I'm not really feeling up to doing stuff tonight, so we'll see.

Night all.
