I just realized I'm up my last ten sessions in a row. It's been a while since I've had that many. This past January, when I had my 120+ BI month, I also had ten in a row.

I don't play the same now as I did then tho. I used to just crank out long session after long session. Now, when I make a few buy-ins and the tables don't look that great, I take a little break. So in a way, I'm "manufacturing" winning sessions. I have this habit of not staring away from the screen every 20 minutes (like you're supposed to), so the next best thing I can do is to spend some time away from the computer. I still had a 12 hour session in that stretch, but I think taking a break every few hours is better. My eyes sometimes feel a little bleary after too many long session in a row. My main concerns about playing poker for a living aren't things you would normally expect - like legislation or the games getting tougher. My main concerns are long term health effects - like repetitive stress (carpal) and vision. (later post)
WHAT'S FOR DINNER?
The Chinese places in our area suck. This is such a huge change from having access to tons of great Chinese places when we lived in Manhattan. So lately Mrs. Fly's been trying to make Chinese food at home. It's pretty difficult because a lot of Chinese cooking involves quick cooking over super high heat. We have a high end range, but it only outputs like 15K BTU per gas burner. I think most Chinese restaurants have like over 100K. So if you ever wondered why your stir fry at home doesn't taste the same, that's why. I think this is some variation of Kung Pao chicken, but Mrs. Fly is taking a nap. It was shockingly pretty good considering our equipment constraints. The seasoning had a lot of great flavor. Sorry about the "sideways" photo - for some reason the Blogger software won't import this landscape photo in landscape mode. I realize the plate is circle so it doesn't matter, but for some reason, this photo looks like it's sideways. Obviously, I have some anality issues.
The salad was pretty meh imo. Mrs. Fly likes to make her own salad dressings. Some of them, like her Caesar and Carrot (like at Japanese restaurants) are really good. But this one was a garlic and oil dressing that was just way to strong because she used a ton of RAW garlic. Mrs. Fly likes things with kick, but all the raw garlic was a little too much. Did I just hear someone say, "bok bok?"
