We have a winner...
I played pool last night. I was working late and one of the guv'nors (Ioan) was on his way out and suggested a quick game. I was so busy yesterday that I hadn't eaten anything... so I decided against alcohol as the chances were high that I'd get smashed or sick.

(Due to this?) I managed to hold my own against Ioan for the first time since we started playing. We managed to get 8 games in and the score was a very diplomatic 4-all... but it should have been a 5-3 victory. In one of the earlier games I was left with an easy black and missed it allowing Ioan to clear up and win. Him suggesting it was a pressure shot didn't help.

I'm not sure if this means I should give up the booze when I play - or that I am just getting better... I guess I'll see next time!

I've been busy non-stop today... I have yet to eat again but I'm thinking this is a bit above my pay grade so I'm going to quit now. I have a pizza at home calling out for me!

Re: Who needs booze?!!

I ate while I was there... but by the time the food had arrived it was almost time to leave... so I didn't drink.

Eating at work just doesn't happen any more!

I actually play pool better when I'm a bit sloshed. Sober...I'm a complete girl at it.

I have a parabolic skill to drink relationship.

I get better after a couple of beers, but it starts to go down hill again if I drink much more, and from then on it deteriorates quite quickly!
