Ahh, Procrastination, My Good Old Friend...

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.

I rock...

Five Years? Really?

Once again I'll be making the jaunt out to the WSOP Main Event this summer, for what is somehow the 5th consecutive year. Not really sure how that happened as it seems like just a few years ago that I was going out for the first time but yeah, five years. Wow.

The last few months have been really, really busy, especially on the work front. I spent about a month and a half in Europe during March and April, which was a combination of work (trips to Vienna and Spain for bwin work) and pleasure (vacation with my wife in Ireland and Malta).

We're still on track to make the move to Malta in August, so I've also been desperately trying to get our house in presentable shape to list it for sale at the end of July when I get back home from the WSOP.

After the WSOP the next work trip is GSOP Live Manchester, then WPT Paris not long after that. I should also finally be in a spot soon to do some reporting work solely for the tptk site at some events, which I'm excited about.

I've also been finally kicking the dust off some old projects as well, so it's been a pretty busy few months of late for me, with no break in sight until we finally get settled in Malta.
