I don’t feel I have had a decent rant recently, so I thought I’d write this. Whilst in queueing in Costcutters the other day, I was infuriated by the gentleman in front of me paying for his collection of sundry goods (one banana and clothes-hanger) via debit card. This process went on for more than 4 minutes. Now, I’m not advocating carrying Liberia’s deficit in one’s skyrocket. However, perhaps a Lady Godiva would make shopping a far more efficient process. In the future, please think of me, hankering after my next packet of ciggies whilst everyone else is oblivious.
News on the home front: my bed has collapsed even further. Also, whilst out last night at the Leamington Bar and Grill, some random lady came up to Scott asking him to sign each of her breasts, one with a ‘3’ and one with a ‘5’. Turns out she works for Heat magazine, and Scott will be featured in his very own article in two weeks time. Ooooh yeh.
Came third in a tourney earlier today as well. And I’m feeeeeeeeeeeeling good ;-)

This blog entry is for the random who shouted up at the window” you know who you are!
This blog entry may not be as light hearted as some of the previous ones. I’ve been having a few problems recently: my bed has just fallen apart, which means I will have to sleep on the floor for the next three weeks until the new King Size Waterbed arrives. Also, Rick ordered some dodgy power cables off eBay, which have had the unfortunate effect of knocking out all the power in the house. Candles it is lads! These power cables were of Chinese origin too: they steal money off the stupid white man so they can buy more stir fry noodles and sweet and sour chicken.
One thing which cheered me up slightly was bossing the Deal or No Deal quiz machine down at The Green Man with Flash earlier today. I have also enjoyed watching the Leamington locals and students going about their nightly business out of Scott’s window: they are some truly awful people about.
Following the success of Dru’s blog, I have also decided to email a few poker sites, to see if they will put my blog up, and get a bit of publicity. Am also planning to play a few more live tournaments soon as well, and with the Midlands Masters coming up, expect some detailed blog entries, and some big scores.
Have been playing on Ultimate Bet and Full Tilt recently, as I have rakeback there. Get it for yourselves:

Well, back in Leamington at the 77 residence. Had good fun on Monday at Poker soc, was good to meet a few freshers. Also went to Score on Wednesday. Was looking forward to meeting a certain Jason Donavan, but unfortunately the fire alarm decided to go off. Jason obviously could not risk the threat of flames, or his dreamcoat may have become slightly more colourful than anticipated.
No poker activity at the moment, as my sister has stolen my laptop lead.
Obvioulsy, after the stabbing I reported in my blog a few weeks ago, security has been paramount within our residence. We feel the best way of ensuring our safety is leaving the front door unlocked and wide open, so if the Mongy Mansion is stormed, we can make a hasty retreat. Many thanks to a pissed Mr Grundy for implementing this avant garde approach to house safety.
Will upload a few pictures of the house in the next entry.
