Like I said previously, after Vegas, poker hasn't been treating me too kindly at all. August was a big downswing as a matter of fact; very few wins, scattered around. A good night at the house this week and another solid sesh at FCP (with a bonus cleared!) made for a nice reversal of fortune recently. English final is done with, now just a final project and my History final as well as some loose ends and it's another quarter in the bag. Looking forward to a month off but not the next quarter-17 units, 4 days down in Hayward, ugh. Plans to hit SoCal for a poker tournament in a few weeks. 2 DMB shows and Bonnie Raitt/Keb Mo in Concord. Sci-fi fans, check out Night Watch-Star Wars meets the Matrix in Moscow. And Inside Man was good too. Found a new late-night soul food spot in Oaktown, The Home of Chicken & Waffles. A 1/4 chicken, Southern-style and smothered with gravy and onions and a side of cheese grits and a hot biscuit-mmmmmm good. Another shot at a GWD freeroll this weekend-just outside the money last time.

EDIT: OK, I spoke too soon. Back to bullshit-AA snapped by JTs all-in pre-flop. After an all-in and a call (by me), this guy still calls. Alright, they were SOOTED...

Donked out after Daniel in the Neg-O SNG; my JJ was re-raised and I knew I was beat but I got it in there anyways. Bleh, no Negreanu, whatever. The Cuke ended up taking it down (There ya go Dave).

Poker has been kicking my ass as of late. Getting fuct repeatedly-getting it all to the center with the best of it but getting murdered on the goddamn river. Gotten AA snapped at least 3 times alone in the past 2 days DEEP in tournies online. Opponents hitting ridiculous 2-outers and such. Unfuckingbelievable. Just now I flopped 2 pair and moved on a pot and got called by top pair-who of course hit his card right after. It's been like that again and again and again. Help me Tom Cruise.

Comment of the Week: "You don't look at the top man, you look at the sides." Joey Pulley, when asked why the paint on the hood and roof of his car were all messed up while the sides were pristine. Yeah, if you're trying to pick up Oompa Loompas you idiot.

Poker face paid off in spades tonight when I got pulled over for driving a little too fast with no license plate light and had to answer a few questions asked me by Johnny Law. Could have been really bad for me let's just say. Really bad. Thank you sir, I will accept your verbal warning and drive straight home under the speed limit and change my underwear at once. And God bless the great state of California.

Picked up a new phone and service from Verizon. Only problem is the reception here at my house is less than desirable. Motorola Q is pretty fucking sexy though. Full color screen, runs Windows Mobile 5.0, digital video camera, voice recognition (which works like a retarded Chinaman), Bluetooth, etc, etc, probably a ton of other shit I haven't even figured out yet. Was surfing the Web and watching cable TV while driving down the freeway. Not very safe and I really don't understand how they can call it a "smartphone."

EDIT: Shortly after, AQ v TT, get it all in on an A flop, what do you think comes on the river?


Doom on me.
