First the poker:
I have played 3 SnGs in the last week or so, all $10+1 events at FullTilt. I somehow won all three. Nice. Last nights pushed me into the next level for my Self SnG Challenge (which has no home page). I will next try my luck at a $20+2 event. I railed smokkee for a bit in a $20 SnG that he won not long before I took mine down.
I did get a chance to work on my table on Monday. I finially screwed the folding legs (which will no longer fold) onto the subframe and used epoxy to make that bond pretty perminent. I should be able to get the table top attached tonight. The felt (velveteen) I used had faded quite a bit (and not evenly because of a wall hanging I had set on the top) so I am going to need to re-felt the top. Mookie suggested I look into the suited-cloth, which looks good. I will probably also build a light canvis cover so fading won’t be an issue in the future. Pics will follow, probably tomorrow.
Now other stuff:
I’m running again- not huge distance yet, but I am working on it. I went to RunTex last week and got some new shoes that fit much, much better than I had been using and started hitting the trails again. I have a Garmin Forerunner 301 which I have programmed with the distance I want to run for the day. It keeps me on pace and records my heartrate. Pretty cool toy. Along with PodRunner I hope to be up to last spring’s distance of about 25 to 30 miles a week by Thanksgiving. The weather in Austin has been perfect this week, it is nice to run in cool, dry weather when you are just trying to get back into it again.
I ran into my buddy Billy on Sunday. He might have an extra ticket to the Texas-Sam Houston State game on Saturday. It is a Pay-Per-View game, so I would rather go to the game rather than pay to sit on a bar stool.
One of my other friends had tickets to the Everclear concert last night here in Austin. It was doors at 8/stage at 9 with two opening acts. I’m really trying to get to bed at a reasonable hour (so I can run in the morning) and seeing Everclear go on at 11:30 or even later did not seem like a good plan. I skipped the show. He really wanted to go, but I’m not sure if he made it or not. Honestly, Everclear is not one of my -must-see- bands, so it doesn’t bother me much.
Thanks for reading- all 3 of you 🙂
