With just three days to go before making my now annual pilgrimage out to the WSOP, things are pretty much par for the course.
Every year I swear I'm going to wrap up assorted work and house projects and go out to Vegas with a clean slate and a spring in my step.
Except somehow or other I get entangled in massive projects, spend a ridiculous amount of money, and only get 75% done before leaving, exhausted and razzled, to go spend three weeks working insanely long days and eating bad food at the Poker Kitchen at the Rio.
Pretty much exactly on track again this year, as now I'm scrambling to get out kitchen put back together and at least somewhat functional before leaving, although it's looking like a coin flip at best for that to happen.
So what have I been doing for the last six hours, with the clock ticking? Yep, that's right, watching Season 1 of Game of Thrones in its entirety again.
