I have good news to report too. I’m officially getting better at pool. 🙂 I’m now ranked a 3 instead of a 2 by the slot gacor. I’ve won my last two or three matches in a row. I still have problems where sometimes I’ll need to shoot on the same ball close to half a dozen times before I can sink it, but my defensive shots and ability to completely screw my opponent with my leave (we call that “johnson pool”… it’s all about being a dick LOL) keep me ahead of the other person. And if I get behind? I actually play better, believe it or not. I think the extra adrenaline that leaks into my veins when I’ve got more balls to sink (or when I’m “short-stacked”, whichever the game might be) helps me to focus and play better. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. They keep playing me against other women in my matches though. I always thought it was because there were quite a few of us that all started this session and are still ranked as 2s. No excuse now. I’m a 3, and there are plenty of 3s that are male. My low-cut tops that display cleavage are definitely gonna be coming out of the closet! Any legal advantage that can be taken should and will be…
It’s all how you play the game. Tilt your opponent before they tilt you. In any game. 🙂
Hey Bullwinkle – watch me pull a rabbit outta my hat! Well, no rabbit, just a post…. but some days, that does seem like magic.
Welcome back to my little corner of the universe! It has been an extremely busy time since we got back from Vegas, but I’m sure it would bore most people… it’s interesting to me since I had to live through it. Quick highlights to explain….
– My Mom came to visit the day after we got home. This is a great thing, actually. I love my Mom and never get to see her enough. Plus, she makes me cheesecake. 🙂 She stayed for 3 weeks… and while she has succeeded in making my house a little more girly and looking a little more lived in (I HAVE CURTAINS NOW!), I spend most of my time wth her when she’s here.
– The Atlantic City Expressway sucks. I became a gaper delay on the weekend after we got back. My truck got rear-ended twice… since I was the first car of a 3-car pileup. I must say that I was very impressed with NJ’s accident response – start to finish, including the switch over to the other side of the road for paperwork, we only lost 20 minutes of our trip. Truck is in the shop now. I’m driving a Ford Focus. Now, if I’d wanted to drive a Focus, I would’ve bought one. Definitely not for me. And the shop is now saying I won’t get my car back until tomorrow or Saturday… even though the original estimate was 3 days and I dropped it off Monday. I’m not happy with them right now.
I’ve won my last two pool matches. My pool skills have been kicking butt lately… and its surprising since I haven’t been playing as much. Maybe I was focused in too much and couldn’t see enough of the big picture. I can’t say as much for shuffleboard… we’re not gonna make it into the playoffs this session. I guess you can’t be a winner at *everything*, no matter how hard you try. I guess I could just blame my partners… LOL
– Speaking of focusing, I’ve been playing poker again lately. It comes and goes in waves for me. I’m riding the crest of a killer wave right now. I’m still playing low limits since its all my bankroll will support. After losing everything on Full Tilt earlier this year, I decided I wasn’t going to deposit anymore. I’d just wait until my advertising credit hit my account and play from there. Over the last 3 or 4 months, I’ve taken those credits and doubled the amount. My play has been pretty solid, and I’m doing my best not to play while I’m tired for my mind is elsewhere and I can’t concentrate.
