Second fiddle again

I settled for #2 nationally again in Buzztime’s The Pulse last night. I finished less than 600 points behind a guy who was playing with a large group at a bar near Harrisburg, Pa. If I would have known where the Pan-Pacific Swimming Championships were held, or where Petra Kvitova won a tennis tournament last weekend, then I win. Then again, back-to-back #2 finishes after three straight #1 finishes is nothing to sneeze at, either.

I forgot my trackball for my computer in the hotel, so either I have to use the touchpad today, or i have to run over to Staples across the street to get a mouse. If it weren’t so freaking hot, I would make the run, but I hate to have to do it today. I might go over at shift change closer to 4 to do it.

I didn’t leave the room until almost 1:30 today. Figured I needed my sleep and I didn’t want to get there too early, since Lisa and Brittany Davidson are both off today, and Liz is still hurting in more ways than one.

These two jerkoffs at the bar are bringing my blood to a slow boil. They’re playing as guests and cheating their asses off. I do not respect Buzztime players who cheat, and I do not have any regard for those who hide behind fake guest handles and don’t want to register.

I don’t think I’m staying around long today. I’ve got a noon deadline tomorrow, and if most my favorites aren’t here, might as well go back to the hotel room early and take care of business.
