Days O' Birthing

It's my birfday. Happy birfday to me.

Not that I expected it to be any different, but turning 31 is pretty much a meh experience, all the way around. At least 30 is sort of noteworthy, but 31? Meh, okay, whatever, turn the page.

Managed to post a few decent poker sessions in a row lately, which is nice, if a bit grindy. I'll take it however I can get it but beating someone over the head with a blunt, aggressive object isn't always the most exciting or stimulating way to play poker. I actually almost fell asleep playing the other night, which is the first time that's ever happened. Granted, it had a good bit to do with working my monkey arse off over the weekend, but still...

I got Harrington on Hold Em and Middle Limit Holdem Poker (Ciaffone) yesterday and started in on them both. I haven't read enough to spew any sort of informed opinion, but I'm actually liking the Ciaffone more, despite the fact that it's more clumsily written and a bit harder to read. No offense to Action Dan, but I haven't gotten to anything eye-opening yet. Like I said, though, I'm only a quarter or so through it, so hopefully there are later nuggets to be gleaned.

Thirty-one is exciting because you won't get to be another prime number for six years. Enjoy it while you can.
