Hello.

You might recognise me from other well known APAT threads such as Chips Accrued, Luky and Chip build a bankroll or the APAT Advent Calendar trilogy.

I"ve been thinking about doing an APAT Blog/Diary thingy for a while, and have had the title in mind for ages, so the start of a new year, seems as good a time as any to give it a go.

I have an opinion on most things (nothing too extreme), although tend to not share those thoughts on public forums as you usually just get flamed or get into a ridicuous argument that neither side will ever let go.

I"m hoping this will be a cross between Chips Accrued and A Grumpy Middle Aged Man.  I might well whinge a bit (okay, likely to be a lot, in fact we might need to set aside a number of pages for the current economic situation alone), but this might be a good place to vent those frustrations and enter into some sensible discussions.

It"s going to be open topics, but I am also planning on documenting my poker this year.  I let myself down big style last year, by not playing nearly enough live events, lots of reasons why (we can go into those later), but I"m going to make up for it this year.

Loads planned for 2011 already, poker and non-poker related.

Feel free to ask anything along the way, I might just give you an answer other than, soon.   Wink

One final point on the illness thing.  Jen unfortunately picked up the same thing the following week and came out with the best line to cheer me up.

"I really don"t know how you managed to make it to work last week if you had the same as I"ve got now."

Man Flu, pah.  Don"t do sick days, which being self employed is a good thing, as don"t work, don"t get paid.

Anyway, I digress.  Jen did the sensible thing and after a week or so, phoned NHS Direct as she was worried that this bunged upness wasn"t clearing up.  The line of questioning went something like this :-

Q: How long have you felt like this ?
A: About ten days

Q: What do you do for a living ?
A: I"m an Accountant

Q: Have you taken cocaine recently ?
A: Have I what ?  No I have not.

Glad to see how easily you"re tarred with the same brush when being a young professional.

Apparantely around 85% of young professionals (Accountants, lawyers, etc) have dabbled with drugs at some point, mainly down to the stresses of their job and their significant incomes.  WTF ?

I don"t believe that figure.  The closest I"ve got lately is Beechams Flu Capsules.   Grin

A good bit of news today regarding the UK Team event in Bolton.

I"d made a decision a while ago that those players in the team from last year wouldn"t get the chance to defend the title.  I just felt it was wrong to make it a closed shop for selection, and everyone should be entitled to have a chance at playing.

What made it even worse was that the guy that top scored for us, Wayne Parker, was the only one not snapped up by a team for this years event.  Got a pm from Paulie though, sorting that one out, so good luck to the seven of you this year.

Actually, seems a good time to post this.  My proudest poker achievement.



At this point I realised I manage people better than I play poker.   Grin
