Cow-orkers (ok, siderea) decided to deploy the new corporate website because "everything's been going so well today!", so I said to keep it away from me. They didn't; I pointed out that the deployment was going to break a bunch of unrelated sites. But hey, free champagne.
Later yakshaver and I went over to his place for hamburgers, and for the first time I got to play actual poker with real chips and cards against human opponents (incl. his housemate Dan who was a fellow Random back at MIT). Turns out I don't suck very much. We didn't play for money, just heaps of poker chips so it was all in good fun. I hadn't played with rebuys before (after you get knocked out, you grab a new stack of chips from the bank), and that made it harder to dominate the table. A player with a dwindling chip stack gets knocked out, and suddenly they've got significant leverage again. But I think I kept the lead the whole time.
I think if I'm going to play much real-world poker, I've got to learn to control my heart rate. On the first hand dealt, I ended up with a full house and was sure I'd give it away with the adrenaline rush.
Woot. It's raining out, and we're about to try to go see the Star Wars exhibit at the museum of science. Tomorrow it'll be colder and snowy, and maybe I'll want to do some outdoor tourism involving the freedom trail.
