I'm sitting here playing poker at a higher limit than my bank roll really allows. However, I couldn't resist the table stats and 10 minutes in I'm over $5 up. I feel like making an entry here too. So I'll type this between hands in the game.|
My stomach isn't feeling the best today. I'm fairly sure it's because I haven't been eating properly lately. Ah, I'll have another piece of toast for lunch in a few hours, and I'm sure it'll settle eventually.
As anyone who's known me for any length of time knows, I'm not a morning person. There is one redeeming thing for my getting up early on Sunday. WGN radio has a very good show from 6:30 to 9 am called "The Sunday Paper" hosted by Rick Kogan. Just listening to Rick is relaxing. He has a deep radio voice that is enjoyable to listen to and the topics he picks for his show are quality too.
(make it 9 bucks up at this limit I shouldn't be playing at now)
He ended his show today promoting a book he wrote about Frank Sinatra's connection to a local Chicago bar -- Every topic Rick has relates to Chicago in some way. One of my best memories of a past show of his was his interviewing a local torch singer (yes, Chicago still has them!)
(14 bucks up -- soon I may have enough to actually be playing at this level safely!)
Anyway, he ended his show with a Sinatra song, Day and Night. It got me a bit melancholy. There are a lot of times when I wish I could be more romantic than life allows me to be with the one I love.
(ok, 45 minutes into playing, I'm quitting the table $25 up. Ah, I think I can tolerate playing at this new poker website)
Anyway, that Sinatra song got to me. "Day and night, night and day, near or far you're the one" -- ok, that might not be exactly how the song line goes as I'm relying on my admitedly far from perfect memory, but it's close. Too bad my head stressed the word "far" in the song when I heard it.
Ok, time to tend my tummy some, and then maybe do some house cleaning. I let my cleaning standards slip some this past week, and need to get back on track cleaning this house.
::::stopping to give a dog the attention she was asking for::::: Hmm, I wonder if a dog could be trained to do house cleaning?
