I seem to be flicking through the TV and coming across Poker. After two evenings at HoG I'm down 82p, but I still can't understand why people watch it on TV unless it's railing against insomnia. No-one even wants to advertise during the shows...

I must not get too into the whole gambling thing - after all I have a history of trouble - 50c lost in Vegas, and £2 on the lottery.

I did however get my new bike today. It's very goth... see here. It has many things in its favour, like being black, being fast, very light, and being my unconditional friend.

Perhaps I should spend some time polishing my knees...

I realise it's a shocking notion BUT, you could get out from behind the camera, fling some random kit on and gamble 3 or 4 times a year. With CAKE to eat whilst doing so.

Or if you fancy life on the other side of the table, we always need more croupiers :o)

I am a late night poker fan/addict.

There is something about the combination of skill, luck and psychology that really appeals about Texas Hold 'em poker - I grew up playing bridge with parents and sister (an excellent family game!) and the same things that I love about that are replicated in poker, with the added bonus that there is not the same formality, and you can have differing numbers of players which can totally change the game.

I prefer the channel 4 Late Night Poker, to ITVs All Star Poker, but you feeds your addiction where you can *g*

There was some on ChallengeTV too - it seems to be very popular at the moment.

I *heart* your bike.

I thought it might appeal :-)

Even if you're not able to do the c2c we should do ~something~ ~sometime~. I've been toying for years with the idea of jumping on the train with the bike to the New Forest or somewhere similar and having a day out.
