Has been a busy week to ten days. Went on a poker trip/Flash’s 21st to Dublin which was thorougly enjoyable. Highlights included throwing my passport on a baggage carousel for a prop bet, witnessing Porno Mark’s drunken banter at the poker table, playing a load of irish fish, breakfast (black and white puddings), getting lost in Dublin having no idea where I was with a drunk McChattie, spending some time with Ed Barron and his biatches, buying myself a lamb card protector and sampling Irish Guinness. My Goodness! Congrats also to Jack and Sarah for making the final table, and to Sarah for winning it as well. Also to Jambon for destroying the cash games. Big thanks to James Smith for organising the trip.
When we got back no-one else was up for drinking apart from the STA boys so had a beer there and went back and chilled. Monday was poker soc and drinks afer. Also failed to do a press up with Flash on my back. He obv eats too many pies. Tuesday was Blood Diamond and Jumping Jacks. I enjoyed the film as it broadened my social/ethnic horizons. There were some real balla black men driving pick ups and weilding AK47s and listeing to Tupac. Not a film I would usually go and see.
Wednesay involved comedy night at Kelseys. The less said about this, the better. Thursday saw a good meal at Leam B&G (where Rick got the whole restaurant to sing happy birthday while keeping his clothes on, an admirable effort) followed by Mirage. Friday was a quiet night in. Might go over Jambon’s tomorrow to play some poker and watch the SuperBowl. Will def update the blog more frequently, as it is quite hard to update it on a weekly basis.
Congrats also to my mate Annette_15 for winning this weeks TLB on Stars. Big props to Annie.
Here is my graph from January. Lots of ups and downs, but the general trend is exciting me.
My aim for this month (Feb) is to play 50,000 hands, do more uni work, go out socialing more, and make Platinum status on Stars. Also to post more on 2+2, and take down a Warwick Poker Soc Tourney.
