Update

I am totally addicted to online poker. I’ve been playing poker for years with real live people but it’s so much more fun to play from the privacy of your own computer. There’s an area you can chat with people that makes it fun to trash talk. I’ve definitely found that men do not appreciate trash talk from a woman playing poker. I’m sure you’re wondering how people even know I’m a woman. Well, I’ll tell you. On the PartyPoker site, when you sign up for an account you put down your sex (not in an anti feminist way) and then when you sit down at a table you automatically have a cartoonish woman sitting in a chair playing your hands. My favorite part of that is that all the female icons have humongous boobs. I would venture a guess that most women who are interested in playing poker probably don’t resemble Pam Anderson. They probably look a little more like Rosie O’Donnell.
The point is, I need to stop playing poker and start writing in a more disciplined manner. Trying to care for and entertain a 7 month old baby doesn’t allow for as much creativity as I’d like but I have to do it. Yes, I have a babysitter but the thing I find tough is to get started writing the second she comes over. First I have to play a little poker, then I feel the need to go to the gym (which I feel guilty for doing as soon as I get there and shouldn’t it be the opposite?)and then I obsessively check my email for an hour. By the time I’ve written anything my babysitter has to go home and I have to beg Jon to help out because “I HAVE TO WRITE.” Oh to have more discipline!
