It’s been a while since I’ve had a totally uneventful “weekend” (in quotes because it’s not really a weekend; just the two days I get off work each week). I did entertain some plans to go out today, but decided against them because I didn’t have the throwing-around money.
So I’ve basically spent the last two days kicking back and doing nothing, save for a little shopping (got a new lamp and an extra stick of RAM for my computer) and playing some video games in the awesome video rocker chair I got for Christmas – I played some Dragon Quest 8 for probably the first time in about nine months, along with some other PS2 goodness that I’d stopped partaking in because it was just too damn uncomfortable to play in the living room before I got the chair.
BTW, if anyone (like, say, gameshowman) plans on going to a casino anytime in the very near future, I’d suggest grabbing a copy of CardPlayer magazine: a letter I wrote to one of their columns is featured in the current issue. (And Dad, if you’re reading this, I play maybe one $40 tournament every other month when I go to pick up my paycheck. Don’t worry.)
In closing, I think I’ve figured out a good new year’s resolution. I think I’ve read and re-read my “2006 sucked, and here’s why” post about a dozen times over the past few days, and after a while, it hit me: why am I just revisiting the low spots of the year? I mean, sure, they happened, and I do have a right to complain about them as they happen, but what good is served by just going back and reviewing them over and over again? Thus, my resolution for 2007 is to stop dwelling on the downers. If I have a bad day, then why go back and relive it?
That’s all for now. I’ve got more nothing to do.
