My first 'celebrity sighting'
Really, it wasn't a celebrity sighting at all, but it makes me feel special to say it that way. I went to Starbucks to read some of a new book I bought (more on that below) and the guy behind the counter says, "This may seem a little strange to ask, but are you into acting at all? Have you done any work in student projects?" I told him I had and he said he recognized me from a short student film he saw this weekend. I said, "Oh, well cool. I hope you liked it." He said he did like it, he thought it was funny and that he was there to support his cousin, who directed one of the other shorts. Anyway, it was strange to be recognized as an actor. Strange, but nice. Hopefully, I'll get to experience more of that in the future. I don't feel I have a big need for validation... but it's still nice sometimes.
Good run at poker
I've been playing well and/or getting lucky for a couple weeks now. My bankroll was hurtin' for a while there, but then I went back to my bread n' butter: Sit N' Gos. I've more than tripled my bankroll in the past couple weeks and I've used some of the cash to help finance my trip to Europe (I transferred some money to a co-worker's account in exchange for a ride to and from the airport). I also bought another poker book today. I'd already read most of it in Barnes & Noble, but I wanted to buy it so I can re-read it when I'm done. This was the first book that I bought directly with money from my poker account and it felt good. I'm sure it'll pay for itself quickly.
Only 7 hours at work tomorrow and I'm out for two weeks!
I don't feel I need to elaborate on that too much, so I won't.
