I've decided to buy a new laptop and have taken an upgrade on the 3 broadband dongle I've got and plummed for an Inspiron 1750 with 17" screen.
I told my Son who is 10 that I'd get him a laptop before he went to Secondary school as their homework diaries are on-line and they can upload their homework nowadays apparently.
However being a selfish sort of Dad and having seen him eat spare ribs and a sticky cake while bumbling about on mine (that took me longer to calm down than any bad beat) I can't bring myself to give him a nice new shiny one so he's going to make do with mine which is only a year or so old and I'll have the nice new shiny one.
Only costing me £15 a month on top of what I was paying and a mate at work pays half at the moment when he's on shift so not too bad and besides can't afford to pay up front anyways while I'm helping to kit my older lads house out.
On to poker and I've only played a bit and am still level though I dropped $40 when I tried out Rush Poker but I still think it's a cracking idea and reckon I'll soon get it back if I play ultra tight.
If you were the one whose idea that was I hope you would get a proper bonus akin to the Banker arseholes and not the proverbial M&S voucher for your efforts.
Anyways off to the pub now for an afternoon of gambling on horses, football, poker, and whatever else is on the cards (Gotta have a blow out as I think I'm ready for one and feel ready to blow my top with shit at work and forking out left, right and centre for my lads house (At least that bit is appreciated)).
Good luck all and funnily enough to the Villa tomorrow as well (a complete one off and proves I need a beer).
Paddy weighs 20st so his Doctor puts him on a diet.
"I want you to eat regularly for 2 days, then skip a day, eat for 2 days, skip a day and so on for 2 weeks and you should lose 5lb."
When Paddy returned he shocked the Doctor by having lost 4st.
"Thats amazing!" says the Doc.
"I'll tell you be Jesus, I thought I was going to drop dead by the end of the first week." says Paddy.
"What from hunger?" asks the Doc.
"No from all the fuckin skipping!!" replies Paddy
