This Christmas was a bit strange for me. I didn't go to the malls. Didn't participate in the frantic gift wrapping at the last minute. No shopping for presents would have made it a stress free season if I wasn't worried about other things.

EM lasted about 5 days in my residence, so that ended as quickly as it started. On a good note, he did give me the rent money for January, so I will have another month to job hunt without having to move from my apartment.

Although things have been in a bit of a downhill spiral of late. I feel that a turn for the better is just around the corner.

One of the very thoughtful gifts that I received from my family this year was a perfumed shampoo, bath & shower gel and spray fragrance by philosophy called Grace. It had the following lovely message on the bottle:

how you climb up the mountain is just as important as how you get down the mountain. and, so it is with life, which for many of us becomes one big gigantic test followed by one big gigantic lesson. in the end, it all comes down to one word. grace. it's how you accept winning and losing, good luck and bad luck, the darkness and the light.

As I read these words, I realized that through of all the tests and lessons, there are a few things that have never been lost, one of them being grace.

Hope all of you had a holiday filled with love, laughter, and cheer!

Hugs and kisses to you all from the Poison...xoxoxoxox

I got my book!

I finally got my autographed copy of Phil Gordon's - The Little Blue Book. This was one of my prizes for winning the blogger Roshambo event last year. I wanted to read his book before my poker lesson.

Can the awesome Phil turn me into a profitable player?

You Don't Have to be Good

This post is overdue I know. But now that I am fueled by some yummy Cosmos, I can release my thoughts properly.

I love being a blogger! Not because..

- I write great
- I offer such insightful poker advice
- I am funny and amusing
- I can use my blog to vent about all my personal drama

I love being a blogger because of you!

The weekend before last I had the pleasure of attending the latest blogger Vegas event. Even though my trip was only for a night, it was enough to remind me why I enjoy being a part of the poker blogger community. Outsiders will never understand how poker bloggers from all walks of life can connect in such a meaningful way.

I felt the love. The kinship. The appreciation.

My bucket was filled. It was a rejuvenating experience.

Thank you my friends! And thanks especially to the little man who wouldn't let me stay away.

So if you have been waiting to start your blog, wondering if it will be good enough. Wondering if people will read it. Coming up with other excuses not to start. Let me just say, stop waiting. You are missing out on the biggest benefit to join. You will be one of us. We will love you whether you post all the time or once in awhile. Whether we give a hoot about what you write or not. My advice to you....Just do it! Start enjoying the ride...
