Yeah, I suck. Busted out last week. No money. Stuck playing freerolls until I get my rake back for the month.

Bad thing? It sucked when it happened, but I think I needed the limit break. I was burned out, playing day in and day out anyway, then ALL day everyday since my surgery. I was on tilt, plain and simple. Worse, I don't think I knew it. Surely, I was getting no cards, no flops, and sucked out on more than Ron Jeremy ever has, but I still played poorly, didn't manage my money, didn't move down limits soon enough. At this stage, I'm simply not good enough to play 1/2 on Full Tilt.

I might still be tilted, which makes it a good thing that I can't risk any money upfront right now. At any rate, I'm going deep into these freerolls, doing better than 90 plus percent of my opponents. Not making the money, though. I'll be able to play ONE .10 cent $50 buck guarantee on Stars, and I have a somewhat good track record with these. Maybe I should pull a Chris Ferguson and try to build a roll from nothing.

I'm reading "Phil's Little Green Book" and I'm getting into playing tourneys

I've been playing some more razz for play money and even the new five card draw on Poker Stars. I need to read a bit about that game.

Not done with limit poker though. Going to AC in March for two days, and a bus trip to AC at a time TBA. Must also reread SSHE by Sklansky and get away from bluffing too much.

In the meantime, I've been editing and submitting stories again. I was about to start a new story, but chickened out.

"What?" you ask. It is very difficult to start a story, the hardest part of it, sometimes.

Saw the doctor today- he's suggesting another FIVE WEEKS before I can drive to work. That's fine, buddy, but are you going to give me a job so I can pays me bills?

Week after next, I'm going to try to go back part time, then hopefully driving myself soon after. Going to be tough working again.

My schedule for today:
Go to bed at 2am.
Up at 5:30, help get monkeys ready for school
Breakfast, back to bed at 7am.
Wake up at 10:30am.
TV, early lunch.
Write until about 3pm.
Shower, Dr's appt., dinner at inlaws.

Where can I fit working 9-5 in there?
