I played in the Mookie for the first time in months last night. I was surprised how small the field was. At any rate, my new Full Tilt name is Carmen623 instead of Carmensincity, so some of you might not have recognized me. At one point, BuddyDank cracked my pocket aces and I was annoyed. I had a nice stack and he knocked me down to like 800 chips. I went all in a couple of times on tilt and somehow managed to double up and then double up. The next thing I knew, I was sitting at the final table and somehow I got all of my chips back because I knocked BuddyDank out. Thanks for keeping those chips warm guy.
So, imagine how frustrated I was when we got down to four people, I had been playing for more than 3 hours and then I made a stupid, reckless move and got knocked out - ON THE BUBBLE!!!!! UGH. Isn't that the worst feeling in the world? It was brutal. I know it's happened to all of us, but it sucked.
I'm heading to work in about an hour and a half. I'm sure it'll be equally brutal. My prediction is that I'll stand around for two hours, maybe get one table if I'm really lucky and then I'll come back home. Part of me wants to pick up the phone so bad and tell boss man that I'm not coming in. He won't care. But, I won't do that. I'm too responsible. My ass will go in and hangout, gossip, talk shit, complain and then come home. 60 miles added to my odometer. Brutal.
I filled out an application yesterday. It was a restaurant/bar/gaming establishment really close to my house. We'll see what happens. Nobody was there for me to interview with on the spot. I do best when I have an on the spot interview. My delightful charm doesn't quite come across on an application :)
So, that's it for me today. Tomorrow is Friday. Happy Weekend to my readers. I'm actually working tonight, tomorrow and Saturday. Yay me.
