The First Rule of FightClub ....

Dont talk about fight club!

From January 2nd through the 15th I played poker 8 days (fewer than norm) and went to bed a winner 8 times. Nothing big or crazy but pretty cool to start the year off with a little winning streak. But as the world turns, all good things must come to an end...and I dropped a wrapper yesterday. Was kind of strange too because I was aware of my winning streak but just really didnt feel like battling and battling. In the past I would get in one of those lose 1 zillion or win 80 bux modes...definatly not a smart thing, but I think any gamblorer has been there and experienced the chase to become winner. Maybe Im maturing ??? Unlikely...


This past weekend a bunch of us (15 or so at peak) went skiing aka 3 days of binge drinking and watching football. The ski conditions were pretty bad. Only blue squares and green circles, or whatever the really flat non steep trails are called were open. But besides the skiing there was plenty of canned miller lites, and lots of good football games. A good time that has become MLK weekend tradation, some highlights this year inlcluded karaoke, barefoot shotguns, cranium, plenty of grilled meats and The Pats!!!

I bought the Nike+ to plug into my Ipod and track my running distance/ time. In the past I have used a website that offers GPS tracking to meausre my runs. Here is the GPS version of my run:

Using my uncalibrated Nike+ here is my running totals:

At the end of my run I didnt realize the Ipod was locked and I was not able to stop the clock, hence the reason for the dramatic drop in running speed. I also stoped a little earlier then the map shows; as soon as I crossed the bridge and reached city square it was time to walk it in...

skiing for the weekend...go Pats !!!!
