Winter is here
The cold air reminds me how much fun it is to be bundled up and running -- it's football weather, although I'm not much of a football fan. I put 500 miles on my old pair of running shoes at the end of October and had been meaning to replace them. Then November went by, and now it's the middle of December.
Things are going ok, thanks to a diversified bankroll. That is, looking for juicy NL 6-max games on the Crypto system, blowing through the blackjack bonuses of the month, chasing main system bonuses (Party, etc.) and working through rakeback, slaving through the Eurobet bonus.
All this while a good chunk of the bankroll is earning savings account interest. I asked my mom about Scurvy Dog's plan to get 4 percent from online savings accounts. She said you can do better with a money market account, so I'll look into that.
I'm still only about 3,600 (of 6,000) points into the Eurobet bonus and it's really like pulling teeth at this point. Sure, it's easy money. But it's boring as hell.
I've spent a lot of time also this month on random diversions -- episodes of the TV series Firefly, all of Bill Filmaff's videos during a dry shift at work, the movie Syriana, which made me think of a bunch of people interacting in a game that is too big. Glad Mark is back and that his Amsterdam trip included some poker (love playing for Euros, btw!).
It's the middle of the month and already I look forward to the end of the year. I'd like to go ahead and close it out. What else is there to prove? I've earned more money this year than last, I think I've learned a few things along the way. Would love a clean slate again instead of seeing negative numbers in some categories, such as "Atlanta live games" (negative because of the robbery).
Anyways, early Seasons Greetings and wishing everyone a happy turn of the cards.
