Poker Tourney comin’ up
Well, I haven’t played poker since April and that was the first time I’d played since December… so, I figure to get back into the swing of things, what’s better than a tournament with a $50 buy-in?  A friend from work told me about it, so I figured I’d ante up and see how it goes.  Of course, I’ve been reading up to try and refresh my memory and I finally finished Sklanky’s Theory of Poker.  In fact, I picked up his Tournament Poker for Advanced Players the other day and I’ve started into that.  I don’t know if any of it’ll stick in time for the tourney Saturday, but I’m also hoping I don’t forget that a flush beats a straight.  I’m afraid I’ll be pretty rusty and my poker face and reading ability might be a little shaky.
Mom’s visiting this weekend
My Mom will be in town for an annual conference next week, so I’ll get to see her this weekend.  It’s been a long time since we hung out or spent any quality time together, so I’m looking forward to it.  But, I’m afraid she’ll show up and be bored of my humdrum life in about an hour.  Oh well, she’s always got the conference to anticipate.
Not much else going on
I haven’t posted in a while ’cause there hasn’t much happenin’ here.  Obviously, I’m gonna’ have an action-packed weekend, but that’ll be the exception to the rule.  Acting is going well and I think we’ve found a comedic monologue to use, so I’ve just been polishing that up and getting it ready to perform.  Doing the monologue in a few venues is the first baby-step toward getting an agent.  Man, this stuff takes a lot of patience.
