Ever seen two Galapagos tortises having ‘relations?’ I have. At the San Diego Zoo on Saturday. Could not stop laughing! I guess the third grader in me will never die. 🙂 I was in San Diego after going on a cruise that I won playing Poker. On the cruise I won an additional $10K+. If you were unaware, I keep a separate blog under my poker persona “ammbo” where you can find my report on the poker tournament. If you are looking for more frequent updates than here, tough. I am a slacker on both. Christine and I had a good time on the cruise. We got to hang out with my boss, his wife, and their 16 month old child. We went back to Mazatlan, Mexico for the first time since out honeymoon but our favorite smoothie place seems not to have survived the three years since we were there. It was a great trip but I still feel worn out. If only vacations were not punctuated by a day of travel I would be a happy man.
As you may know, I have a real job. I truly feel it is the best job ever. It hit me when we were doing laundry. Christine was folding one of the ten+ pairs of pajama pants that I seem to get every birthday, Christmas, and Arbor Day, and remarked that I have so many. I replied that I should get rid of some and she came back with, “No, you need them to wear to work.” What a great job I have. I sit at home, manage a big website, and play some poker when I get the time. The real problem with working from home is being able to turn it off. I find that there is always more to do on the site so I just keep at it. Being the neurotic perfectionist that I am, I tend to stay on task until I fall asleep. Then I wake up, start up the computer, and get right back to it. Repeat as necessary. I am not complaining, I love what I am doing. I just need to make better hours for myself.
On the poker side of things, I have not been playing a lot because I work so much. However, when I do play I have been doing well. I will be going on another cruise in about two weeks after having won my way in. It will be the Party Poker Million, the same one I went on last year. Hopefully this year I come away from it with a few thousand dollars rather than just a good story. Wish me luck!
