Getting Ready for Spring

Here in chicago, they weather dictates everything. Whether it is summer or winter, the temperature and percipitation has a greater effect, I think than in areas where the weather is pretty consistant. Being a non-cold loving person, I don't care much for half of the year up here, but summers are a lot of fun. Unlike places like California, Florida or Nevada where winters are pleasant, in Chicago, summers are a lot more fun because the heat never (or rarely) gets so bad that you can't have some fun. I'm thankful for the type of work I do. I can really dig in during the winter, and take lots of time off, or schedule around work in the summer to make the most of the few great months available for outdoor fun.

Work and Pleasure

I've started a new website to accompany my newest pastime of playing poker. Having fun and finding a way to work actual writing and work into it, makes online work more fun. It's possible, of course, to build a monetized site around something you don't care much about, but it's very difficult.

Poker- That's What He Said

All kidding aside from the title, I've been having a blast playing real player (not real money) poker at I've made quite a few friends on there as well. Seeing the same people all the time on the various tables, and talking in the side chat is fun and interesting. People from all over the world play there, so there's games at any tim eof the day/night. I used to play regular games at my house with friends from work at the pizza place I used to work for in the 80s, but since then haven't known enough people who were interested to have home games. This site makes it easy and fun to always be able to play.
