Welcome to the Malaise

Let me start by saying "Friends don't let friends participate in 7am conference calls, and if they do, don't let them do it two days in a row". It makes for afternoons spent with a 1000 yard stare, hoping that the afternoon comes to a quick close so that one may escape to the safe(r) confines of home.

It's also contributed to my less-than-stellar NaNo output for this week, something that remarkably coincided with my previous post, where I proclaimed my cockiness. And where I also mentioned being snake-bit after proclaiming success. Thank goodness for NaNo Write-Ins (item 3 on my "Tips and Tricks" list), and for Saunter (item 4), which forced me to throw down some words last night, halting my period of writing inactivity.

In somewhat contradictory fashion, I did receive a dose of musical inspiration which may lead me to change my narrative's course quite markedly. Not that I really knew where it was going anyway, but I'm positive it wasn't going where it is now headed.

Now all I have to do is get there.


On the poker front I have been busy flying too close to the sun on the Triple Draw tables. My current roll on there is not really (and when I say "not really" I mean "not really, without a doubt") deep enough for that limit, but I continue to dabble. So far it's been net positive, but it has been a crazy roller-coaster. All it's going to take is one nightmare session to gut me. I should be spending my time grinding at 2/4 or so, slowly accumulating, with only the occasional shot at 5/10 when the tables look juicy. So let's see how I go about making that happen.

I did note that in a week (not every day, mind) of sporadic play at various limits on the TD tables that I have accumulated 1/8 of my total Stars Frequent Player Points for the year. Hilarious!


  • The 7am conf call cannot be as bad as the late afternoon Friday call.

  • What could there possibly be to talk about at 7 AM?

    Crusted over eyes?
    The missed bacon opportunity?
    Hungover, early morning dumps?

    Surely, one can't be expected to talk about things like "business" or "work".

    Silly go-getters with their grande latte enemas...

    Still, like StB said, at least it wasn't on a Friday afternoon--infinitely worse.
