    That should be over now...
    I think, I'm not positive but I think, I have finally deleted every "hamburger" post from my journal these last few years. I am tired of spam and I don't need this shit.

    Dream Another Dream, How Cruel
    I was dreaming I was staying in a hotel, possibly in Atlantic City, possibly in Vegas. All of a sudden it was flooded with people I play poker with, and my ex girlfriend. All the poker players started bedding down all around my room, and my ex was curled up with a cat in the one bed. She called me to her, I held her hand, she invited me into bed, and I turned her down. Woohoo?

    I was off...
    I won $41 twice that I forgot to update one of, and a $6 win in between, and another $26 last night.
    $3179.5
    - $41
    - $6
    - $26
    ________
    $3,106.5

    Which is still way too high in gambling losses.

    My kung fu movie review had no energy to it, so I started over. This next take that I did is coming along nicely. I like the feel that it has, and I should be finished with video #1 in a few days, with video #2 starting right after it. This is getting to be fun, but I have to make sacrifices to have the time to do the editing. I can't make every poker game, or work out every night, or go out to dinner with the kung fu people every weekend. I need to cut back on activities, and it is breaking my heart =(

    More Poker Crap
    $3220.50 - $41 in winnings the other night = $3179.5 in gambling losses, which is depressing...

    I met a woman on OK Cupid that studies the same style of shaolin kung fu as I do. Really weird, but I enjoy the emails we have been trading the past week. I have heard some rumors about her kung fu sifu, but I'm really not the one to be passing them on to her right now, as I have zero experience with the guy, and I'm not exactly in a position of trust with her right now. We shall see how things go.

    Pker Wins/Loses
    So, after buying my new Camaro, I went down to Atlantic City and lost $500... Then I played a small quarters game up here and won $41. Then I played another quarters game last night and won another $6. There might have been another win in a small game the last few weeks, but I don't remember it, so it doesn't count. I am $3220.50 in the red right now, and need to check my gambling addiction...

    Kung Fu Review Video Blog
    I have other updates to make that I have been ignoring over the last two months, but for now I am just letting people know that I am working on a video blog where I will be reviewing kung fu movies. I only have a minute of the first review put together so far, and I am aiming for 20 minute reviews, but I only started working on it after dinner last night, so I'm not doing too bad (even though I came up with the idea over a week ago, I had technical difficulties with DVD ripping).

    Could I be anymore nervous?
    I'm buying my new car tonight. I am spending $10,000, more than I have ever spent in a single transaction before, for a new Chevrolet Camaro tonight. I am leaving work at around 5:00pm, and driving straight to the dealership to buy my new Camaro, tonight. I can't stop thinking about it. I can't focus on work. I can't stop thinking about it. I want my new car!!!

    And I never told my family that I got the loan. they still think (I think they still think) that I am not getting the car like I was in the middle of saying here on Friday. It should be quite a surprise when I pull up into the driveway with my nice new shiny Camaro that I am buying tonight...

    I Tried To Buy A Car...
    I tried to buy a new Camaro. I failed. I can afford to drop $10,000 for a down payment, and pay the rest off over five years. I can't convince any banks in the area that I can afford to do so. It is really pissing me off.

    So now I am trying to improve my credit rating so that I can try again next year.

    And as I am typing this, I get in touch with my dealer one last time, and I am approved, if I can get my January pay stub from my boss by Monday I should have a new car (tonight if I get that stub today).

    Won $28.50 in a poker game last night.
    And because of a $5 loss in Atlantic City over New Years weekend, I am now down $2,767.50.

    I haven't played free bar poker in over a month. Those people never fold, and it all comes down to luck with them. It's annoying, and I don't know if I want to go back anytime soon.

    Dating sites depress me.

    Stupid Chairs...
    Mother fucking mother fucker, motherfucker! That's two chairs that have collapsed under my weight in the last ten years. I wasn't even over 200 pounds the last time it happened. Fucking fuck! My home chair is the same as the first office chair, and that hasn't broken after nine years of use. Now I have to use a shit chair until lunch when I can go out buy a new chair again...

    That heart be a pump'n...
    I don't know if this was the blurt I wanted or not, but here goes... ;)

    I was told by my kung fu instructor that I should keep my heart rate below 140 beats per minute when running. My rested heart rate is over 100. I reached 142 BPM when walking at 2.5 miles per hour. When jogging at 5 MPH, I hit a whopping 176 BPM.

    Either I am headed for a heart attack soon, or I'm headed for a hear attack soon...

    I don't even feel tired or like my heart is beating all that hard when I'm running that fast. So I wonder how fast it is beating and how hard it is pumping when I am doing my kung fu workout and I do feel like it is working overtime, when I can feel my pulse throbbing through my entire head...

    Return of Kung Fu Classes
    I don't know if I mentioned it here or not, but the kung fu school closed for December while we looked for a new location. We have opened up in a temporary location in a masonic temple. The work out room isn't quite as big as our old one, but it will have to do while we continue looking for alternate spaces in the area. I keep saying "we", but really I have nothing to do with it.

    The new location opened up on January 4, and I got in as good a workout as I could, which didn't feel that great. I was exhausted, my kicks felt ineffective, and jumping up and down was really difficult. Thursday night was more of the same, as was my private lesson on Sunday morning. Last night didn't feel much better, but I did get a bit bruised up. Over New Years weekend I had been thinking how I hadn't been beaten and bruised by kung fu classes in a while, and how I missed the feeling. It has now returned, and I am not missing it anymore.

    I'm not regretting it. Don't get me wrong on that. I am enjoying the bruises. They make me feel alive.

    Maybe if I train hard enough and toughen myself up I will have the strength to beat the world back a bit?

    They Might Be Dammed Giants
    Diagonal Man is a hole in the plan
    Nobody trusts Diagonal Man
    Who's the source? Man In A Can
    He's the one that came up with the plan

    Man In A Can has really big hands
    He uses them to cover his plans
    Sometimes he uses his really big fans
    Fans that he holds in his really big hands

    I was bored while driving into work today :P

    I ran a mile today!
    I have never run a full mile. I have always slowed down to a walk at some point when I did it in the past. but not tonight! I ran a full mile in just over 12 minutes! Ok, so that'sa little slow, but I did it! Woohoo!

    My goal now is to run a ten minute mile by the end of the year. Ok, maybe only an eleven minute mile. But I plan to better myself either way =D

    Daily Stuffs
    My father and I had a poker tournament today. I convinced myself that I would be knocked out in the first hand. When that didn't happen, I was pleasantly surprised, and enjoyed the next two and a half hours I spent playing cards. I didn't make the final 30 that got invitations to the national tournament in Atlantic City, but I still had fun.

    Then my father and I stopped at a Pizza Hut Express at a bowling alley for dinner. I was a little upset that I was in a bowling alley for the first time in six or seven years and I wasn't bowling, but I also had a headache that would have majorly reduced the fun of the experience had we bowled a round.

    And then I saw my boss at my office as we drove by. He is never at the office. What was he doing there at 7:45 pm on a Saturday night? Very weird...

    Gamble much? Yes I do... Oh, and the weather sucks too.
    The other Saturday I lost $25 because I played a tournament. I would have broken even if I had just stuck to cash gaming.

    And then on Monday I won $8, and on Tuesday I won another $4. $2,791 in total losses.

    __

    It was supposed to snow 1 to 3 inches last night, and then turn into rain for the remainder of the morning. Nope. We got 5 inches last night, followed by rain. The snow was so heavy I could barely shovel it. And when shoveling in the rain, my clothes got soaked through. I'm not in the mood to be up and about right now...

    Kung Fu Video
    I recorded this this morning in one take, even though I hadn't done the routine in a month! I was so very pleased with myself =D

    I also added in the spin behind my back at the one minute mark, and watching this video was the first time I had seen it because no one else at the school does that for this routine.
