When Two Day Work Weeks Go Bad

Trying to recreate the logic that resulted in my not taking this entire week off, since I'll only be here at the monkey factory for two days before leaving for Vegas. Failing miserably.

I'm actually hiding from the online poker tables of late, and probably will do so until Vegas. I went on a nice little rush over the weekend at the 15/30 tables and decided to shut it down while I was happy and smiley, instead of pushing things and risking a downturn before leaving for Vegas. Which makes little logical sense, but, you know, whatever...

I broke down yesterday and bought the new Sid Meier's Pirates, which is pretty amusing so far. So far I've just played on the easiest setting, blowing things up and raping and pillaging, but it looks pretty entertaining, especially the open-ended aspect of it. And it's got pirates. Pirates! Argh, matey...

I hate those two-day work weeks. Efficiency levels are down 60% anyway, so I'm wondering if I should just go home now.....oh wait, it's payday. I have to wait to get that.

Are you staying at Treasure Island then?

I'm a fan of Sid's, hope Pirates turns out to be all good.

I play the hell out of some Pirates. I had the original when I was a kid - still one of my all-time favorite games. You'll end up having to bump the difficulty to the highest or second-highest level, but if you enjoy the subject matter you won't ever find yourself bored with this game.

Looking forward to seeing you in Vegas.
