I finally played some poker again last night. Not too much, just a couple of hours of $25 NL at FTP, with Scott, Joanne, Mark, and Ryan. I mostly played like a donkey. Finished up about a buyin thanks to my 63o flopping two pair against Scott’s AQ, after he raised preflop. Yeah, donkey.
It was fun, though I have to learn (again) to stop when I get bored instead of just giving all my money away. Given how long I played before that happened, I think tournaments might be out of the question for a little while.
In other almost-poker-related news, I spent my remaining PSO points on more Amazon gift certificates, and got myself a Nintendo DS Lite. I looked everywhere for a good case for it, but couldn’t find one actually made for it that I liked. Instead, I got a case made for a camera. I have some pictures in the gallery [1 2]. The Altoids gum case holds games, and in the front pocket is the charger. All the cases marketed for the DS were either much bigger to hold the same stuff, or much smaller and only held the DS and maybe two games. This case was $7.99 at Fry’s or Outpost, and works perfectly.
New Super Mario Bros. is awesome.
