Yo momma so ugly... as a child she wore a mask 364 days a year... and took it off for halloween.
This blog is lame....|
I need to update this more often... too dang lazy...
online poker update...|
One bad session after another... I'm now back to the same $ level I was at after my first 4 hours of playing. Started with 50... went up to 300+, now back to ~80.... averaging something miniscule like 40 cents per hour... I can make more $ working at a shoe factory in china or break-dancing on the streets of SF...
... guess I ain't as slick as I thought I was ...
alrighty, that's enough. No more poker talk until after my bank roll is at 0 or $1000.
...Time to watch football...
Is a raise supposed to raise lowered expections?|
Well, my manager told me I'm getting a raise starting in October. An extra $2000 per year. That's cool. More $ in my wallet. The raise was completely unexpected... which some might consider a pleasant surprise... However, the more I thought about it, the less excited I was about it. Sure, money is money... But I can't help but think...why was the raise unexpected in the first place? I'd worked there almost a year, and I've done a pretty darn good job, fairly well-respected in my group... shouldn't I expect a raise? The fact that I was completely taken by surprised by the raise is somewhat troubling... is that what corporate America does to corporate tools like me? -- Lower expectations so much that a small raise is supposed to boost morale? Shoot, some of my coworkers haven't gotten raises or promotions for 3 years...
Well, I guess I am a corporate tool after all -- the raise worked... for now... I do feel like Management does appreciate the work I've done, and that gives me a tinge of extra motivation... I just hope I'm not still surprised next time I get a raise (and hopefully it won't take 3 years for that to happen).
Work is all right, but it still feels too much like... work.
Fight on, my brothas and sistas.
Damn, I'm seriously seriously sucking it up these days in online poker... started off winning $ in each of my first 15 sessions... earned an average of $13 an hour... had visions of moving up to higher stakes and becoming a professional gambler... but alas, i suppose it was all just beginner's luck.. I've been down in nearly all of my sessions lately... now my average is down to $2.50 per hour...
oh well, I guess I'll won't be quitting my day job any time soon :-)
ok.. time to watch "Tough Crowd" with Colin Quinn....
That dude was so lame back when he was on SNL... His new show's pretty amusing though...
hello, world. I would like to thank paranoid_monkey for introducing me to the wonderful world of blogs.
