Don't tell them I bought these three masterpieces for £1 at the local car boot sale.

I also bought these as well. Not sure if you can make them all out but there's a load of reading material so should keep me occupied for a while. Plus a few recent film releases which were £1 each.

Out of work yet again.
Seems the Company I worked for have a container full of hard drives coming into the Country and they've been held up somewhere which means I have nothing to format. Shit happens.
Back to playing Poker allthough I do have to see a man about a job later. Probably going to work with Dave next week which should be fun.
Played Poker on Tuesday night at my local and some random guy sits down and asks if he can join in. As we had only just started and a few of the boys vaguely knew him we let him buy in. The game was self dealt and the first hand he deals he gets Aces! And so it went on. He hit flushes, full houses, everything you can imagine. Spookily though, only on his own deal. He also had the annoying habit of continually asking what denomination the coloured chips were. After about ten minutes it was obvious that he was fleecing us. I watched him like an hawk but couldn't work out if he was cheating or not. Normally we play until two in the morning but after this guy sat down we ended after the first game, which he won, at about ten thirty. After he leaves the Landlord says to one of the boys, "So, how did the magician do"?
Turns out the guy has a part time magic act and he specialises in, wait for it, CARD tricks. What a fucking wanker. It was just as well we found out after he left because if someone had mentioned that fact whilst he was playing I guess he would have had the shit kicked out of him. Hopefully he turns up next week where I'm sure he will have a warm welcome.
Wales play England in Footie on Saturday and latest news is Gareth Bale is out. Fucking great. Our one decent player is side lined. Looks like my 11-0 correct score bet for Wales is doomed but I just got 6-0, Bellamy first scorer bet matched at 1.8. Seems a massive price to me against a piss poor English team. Here's the latest betting for next England manager which could happen as early as Sunday.
David Beckham 10.7
Lord Stephen Fry 186.0
George Osborne 17.5%
Prince William 29.04
Jamie Oliver 250 calories
Colonel Gaddafi 4.2
Cheryl Cole 36/22/34
Sir Alan Sugar 1.6
Silvio Berlusconi 69
Chief Wiggum 911
My money is on Capello and Berlusconi doing a job swap next week.

1. 11
2. 2, 6
3. 4, 11

Good luck if you're having a bet today.

Edit... 4 out of 6 races so a load of crap to be honest. Am working with Dave today so wont be able to post one up later. Probably saves me some money.

Where did February go?

Jeez, it's been a while!
So what's been happening recently I hear you ask? Not a lot.
Played poker in January and made $2k but the disheartening part was making $1.8k in two days and $200 in the next twenty nine days. My sleep patterns were all to fuck. I was getting up at 15.00 to pick my Daughter up from school. Getting home and cooking her Dinner, me breakfast. Doing fuck all until 20.00 then playing a few tourneys through til 6.00am the next morning. By the end of January I'd had enough.
Luckily, I was offered a job with a Company I used to work for and took them up on their offer. This coincided with my Daughter opening up a spam e-mail and downloading a load of viruses onto my laptop. After fixing those she then went and done it again.
Then she managed to break the power cable so I couldn't get on the laptop until I bought another. Then she opened another spam e-mail and fucked it up again. It may come as no surprise to find that she is now banned from my laptop. Little cow.
So I've had an enforced break from Poker and am now chomping at the bit to play a few tourneys. I've also had an enforced absence from reading peoples blogs so I have a bit of catching up to do.
Anyhow, I've been trying to get on that fish, Amatay's, blog but for some reason it's turned into an "invite only" blog? I sent him a text about it and he sent one back saying he'd had a bit of bad news and had some stuff to sort out but would get on the case as soon as he could. It transpires that his new girlfriend out in the Far East has testicular cancer. My thoughts and prayers are with you Bud.
