Where does the time go?!
Monday and Tuesday were spend working my arse off before hooking up with Mr Ed Lofstedt for a drink. Ed is a great friend of mine I met at college a few years ago. He plays acoustic folk music, super high quality, so check it out.
We sunk quite a few pints and had a good laugh before he headed home to get some sleep for his normal-person job. I instead headed over to Deja Vu to play the cash game. For once I ran like god and it was great! I got Aces 3 times in about 20 minutes! I hit quite a few good cards and played quite crazy, taking full advantage of my rush. The night was quite funny as I carried on drinking, chatting to the random folks that turn up in that place. I got talking to one very 'street' young lady, who was educating me on macs funnily enough. She then went on about her boyfriend who steals peoples phone and promised if he comes around he wont steal mine. Cheers! I also found it hilarious to speak to her in a real prince-William style voice as she spoke in such slack tongued drivel. I laughed for most of the time, but she didn't seem to care.
Got home and slept at around 6am, feeling like shit the next day. This wasn't good production wise, so if I am going to play that game (which I will try too as its great and small stakes) I wont drink. Don't mind having a lay in on a school day, but I have to get up and get at least 8 hours work grind in!
The one bit of work I did do on Thursday was develop the Reading Poker Tour which is going to use a new live/online event model I've been working on. If Reading goes well, I can launch it in other cities. Will be great fun and pure value for the players, while very good business wise for PokerIdol too.
Friday and Saturday I worked during the day and chilled in the evening around Marcs house, playing Bad Company 2. Interesting game! Not just a FPS, but with lots of tactics too. Great sound design also, however a bit more care could of been taken with reverb time in small spaces, but I'm an audio nit :)
Yesterday I did a bit of work before heading back into town with Marc, Guy and my other school friends. We went to 0 Degrees which is fast becoming my favourite spot. Relaxed, funky and the crispest, freshest most ice cold beer as its a micro brewery. My mouth started watering writing that. I also had a pecking duck pizza which was amazing! Clare was on a budget trip, bringing out a bottle of rum in her bag to spike her own drinks! Not seen that in a while and I turned down the free rum to begin with. However, when we moved to the dirty land of the Purple Turtle I thought fuck it and started ordering just cokes to which she added about 5 shots worth. We left there around 1 and went to Deja Vu to see if there was any poker. None, so we had one more drink and a game of table football. We enquired of the strip club upstairs was open but it was shut, so we retreated at 3am. That is starting to seem like an early end to the night for me now, which is a little worrying!
Worked loads today which was pretty boring, not everyone can have a bank holiday! Going to get into bed soon and watch 'Daybreakers'. Been on a sci-fi tip recently, but been quite disappointed with what I've been watching.
Am in London all day tomorrow having meetings which should be cool, always nice to head to the city. Wednesday I'm going to see Mr Lofstedt play a gig and will no doubt end up in the poker game afterwards, but NO (excessive) drinking. Probably.
