Rainy Fridays Rock

I like "telecommuting" on Fridays, especially when it's raining and 2 o'clock and I haven't put on pants yet.

Many thanks to everyone who made it over to Kickered thus far. You folks rock.

I think I may take a bit of a poker break for a week or so, at least from ring games, likely just playing some MTTs and what-not for kicks and grins. Yesterday was a pretty ugly poker day, and I found myself much more tilty and pissed than I like. I don't like losing money, true, but even more than that I just don't like losing. At anything. At all.

I also need to get back to the grindstone, as far as other Webby endeavors I've let slide lately. I also need to motivate and start bombarding and and all contacts I can find at poker sites about potentially doing some freelance/permanent work providing content, helping affiliates optimize sites/set up blogs from a SEO perspective, and other stuffs. Doesn't take too many gigs like that to add up to a reasonable replacement for working in Cubelandia, and there's no reason not to start knocking on doors and see what happens.

In completely unrelated news, someone sent me a link to Zillow.com, which apparently just launched and is pretty cool, if you're into seeing the value of your home/neighborhood/city, but overlaid onto satellite imagery. Likely more of a fun toy than accurate data source but still pretty cool to play with.

I've been reading fiction again, mainly Philip K. Dick books, so far A Scanner Darkly and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Pretty dang impressed so far, and I'm still not sure how it took me this long to get around to reading some of his stuff, as I was pretty big into sci-fi stuff back in the day.

Time to get back to continuing to not put on pants.

PKD is the man. That guy has one vicious imagination. I think he's really an alien.

I had heard that the Ziller site is great in some areas and sparse of data in others (just checked out my house, and in Ziller it is worth 60% less than we paid for it five years ago rather than the 50-70% more than it should be worth). I'll jump on the forum. I do wonder if there is some sort of unique thing that really isn't covered currently out there. Let's try it then see if we can figure that out. Good luck, though.

Kickered is Kickered Ass. Good idea, and nice format. As a poker newbie, it gives people like me to get involved in the 'scene' without feeling like a moron.

Well, back to Harrington and crack cocaine (ok,not the Harrington...I keed, I keed)!
