Start of the 30th end of the 2007th

It's been some time since i blogged. Well the reasons are always many not to blog, but the most of all i didnt have the mood to do it. So for those whom i promised to write and those who were expecting lines here i apologize. I was lazy. I will try to do some consistency with my older blogs, i thought this would be a good idea. And easier for me too. So i passed 29 now. Last year in the twenties, kind of sad. I remember it was painful leaving the teens now its the 20s. No particular feelings, that i turned 29. I still feel young. Well, not teenish young but still young. People though try to take it away from me and say im old. I don't know what makes them do it ?!! My balding forehead? Weaker hair in general? Wrinkles or what? They never tell me? Maybe it's just my way of interaction that it is. :)) Anyways i decided to get in shape and stay young forever. That was one of my presents for my b-day. I got a fitness pass and ever since I'm actively working out so far 2x a week. Sadly for me this is going to be double investment. Since I'm paying for the entry and i hired a personal trainer who keeps me motivated and keeps calling my mobile 3x a day so i get my ass to the gym. Not to mention there are the upcoming shopping bills for my new clothes that will be necessary as i get super buff. :)) Other than muscle fever i started up pretty well with training. Though there was a small accident. I did train for my calves and i must have over pushed myself to the limits and i had such a pain in both calves that i couldn't walk for 2 days.

Now these 2 days were the most busy days for my entire year and i had to show myself in front of so many people. Can you imagine going for my mom's 50th birthday party? Everyone dancing and all that stuff and I'm walking from the bar to our table in 20 minutes, just cuz i'm so much in pain. Fortunately there was plenty of food and plenty of drinks (yes, alcohol too) and it really helped me back on my feet. By the morning i could almost normally walk. :)) No pain, nothing. I was fine. Anyways, my muscles are back to normal. Talking of pain killers, there was this guy in our town who got drunk on a party , like real drunk... and 3 in the morning he got starving hungry. And as drunk french fries came to his mind. He started to fry the oil and put the french fries in it. Since he didnt find anything to stir it with he used his hand to do it. Next morning he woke up in killer pain with 2nd level burn spots on his hand. I just wanted to show the power of Bushmill's pain killing side. :)))

A week before my mom's birthday, we celebrated Tibi's son's birthday. I was as always late about an hour or maybe even somewhat more. Beforehand i was attending my friday night poker tournament session and i thought as my luck goes i would be out soon, but no. I made it till the bubble and finished 2 place out of the money, unfortunate, but the good news is we now had a good reason still to be optimistic and go for something great. I grabbed a bottle of wine from my quality collection and brought it to Tibi's place. We were not expecting many ppl to come. They said they started to drink long ago, but the party was so freaking sober i can't imagine what they did throughout that time. So i came for help and think with Tibor we got drunk like in half an hour to an hour time. I never drink Metaxa , but this time i didnt care and went with the flow. Later in the evening we just decided to go to a place where we met up with my sister. It was a shitty party place. Well shitty for looks but the music is always good, and the atmosphere is very positive every time i go there. Well , i ve never been there sober, but still , ive got good memories from there. :)) Hehe, not from this time though, since i relived a long ago experienced blackout from alcohol . In fact i dont know till today how i got home. Only thing came to my mind is to lock the door from the inside, which for me comes instinctively. And this became a problem. Csilla couldn't get in the morning from her 24 hour work shift. I had the car , the keys, the lock from inside and my phone in my coat pocket. Luckily for me she wasn't as pissed as i expected. :)))

We were planning to go to a wellness hotel on my birthday, but as it comes to us a lot of times, one of our employees decided not to come to work the day we were supposed to go. We had to cancel our reservations. You can imagine i was MEGA pissed. So she got away with a warning this time, but there is no more excuse for her. Btw, she did screw us over last year. My patience with people is unlimited i guess, until i fucking explode like a bomb.

Speaking about explosions. I did explode a few times recently. December is again back to the red poker wise. I'm running pretty cold and am discovering a whole lot of problems in my game. This is good. Every down period I'm looking to fix up my game and really it helps me keep alive in today's pretty tough internet games. I am keen playing online as the poker room in Komarno just died, so i cant find games frequently enough. And online is a tough bitch. Internet poker is so different from live games. Also the opposition is very good. So i need to improve. I need to fix up wholes and leaks in my game. I am determined to do it and my entire next year or so to say my last year in the 20s will be spent on fixing up my NL Holdem game, alongside starting up with Omaha HI and Hi/Low. I just found out the excitement of this type of poker just recently and am having great fun playing it for sure.

December was all about x-mas for me. I kind of got early in the x-mas mood but this year its just so much more. Every week there was something to do with it, we decorated the hotel, well i only took some small part of decorating since I'm not very welcome decorating with the girls. They just fancy the decorating on their own in their own style. I must admit i DON'T mind!!! ;)

Then we went shopping, and in some part this is always great this time of the year, everything is full of people, it is tough to find a parking place for the car and some good discounts and stores packed full with great merchandise. Everything is dressed up beautiful, the world is just beautiful this time around. I must say i am very satisfied with the x-mas presents I'm getting. As we got older we don't expect surprises rather surprise each other with stuff we actually wish for. So we ask and i published them in some part on my blog. And there is not one item missing under the x-mas tree and there are some more. I have actually tried a few out, like Logitech's wireless headphones and wireless Wave keyboard. They kick ass. I just love them. I asked my dad to surprise me with a cool office chair that i want to use in our spare room that we have. I wanna move in there with my new PC. Well that PC is just in the plans, i plan to put on the order today, I'm not sure i will buy it, I'm still thinking about it. Since i gave away my PS2 to little Erik i don't have anything to play with. But this new PC is like a wallet hog... Since i have the keyboard and mouse and monitor i only need the PC itself. However i don't need a PC unless for gaming. And those biyotches cost much. Just the graphical card costs me 800 bucks. So i'm still considering it.

Other huge problems i have in life is whether to go with Vista or stay with XP. My new machine would easily take on Vista, i just don't know how the new OS is more superior to the old one. So as you see these tough decisions i have to go through every day. It is very hard on me.

Speaking of hard life i decided to give donation from part of my tax this year to Africa. I really wish the new continent could start up finally. I don't know where, but i read it in an article that black people are stupider than other mutations of human beings. I am not racist or anything but there could be something about it. After all why is that the black continent is in such trouble as is. And just generally in every society very few black ppl made themselves good life by being smart. :)) So all in all i decided to support the stupid, they really need it, and since this money would go into waste if my government would use it up for corrupt business deals and giving it the unemployed gypsy population, i see the good reason why this money will go to Africa. So Africa wait up, I'm shipping it. I was just thinking of one person who is black and kicks the shit out of white ppl. It's Phil Ivey. So sorry black ppl, no harm was intended.

Once i will be really up with poker money i am thinking about donating some percent of it too. After all i am taking this money from other people. I need to give something back to society. By donating back a bit i think is a good start. Anyone any ideas who NEEDS the dough?


So all x-mas presents bought i am eagerly waiting it to exchange them :)) Can't wait my mom's lentil soup and eating turkey and duck all 3 days... I am conscientiously planning to fatten up my belly during the holidays.


I must close my blog out by thanking everyone around me, wife, family, friends and poker fellows that made 2007 such a great year for me. I really loved every moment of it. I hope my next year will reach somewhere this high too, as there are some big plans for that year. New construction start up for my real estate, trip to America and Euro cup and who knows what more... Hope some new challenges will be up as I'm waiting to face 2008 with positive attitude. So 2008 here i come!!!


Finishing up my blog i just wish everyone a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.


See ya after the holidays.

you need to tell me about those Logitech wireless headphones. Are they bluetooth? Do you know what model they are? I could use something like that since I live on Skype :) Happy holidays bro, keep in touch!

The headphones are great. They stopped producing them though, i guess you cannot buy them anymore, because it had this problem that it broke quite easily. I don't have like a huge head so it's cool, but i am pretty careful with them. You might try ebay though. It's USB bluetooth. I love them. WHat can i say? Nice to walk around in the apartment listening to my stuff, watching movies from a distance. And best you can control the volume and tracks with the headphones' buttons. There is this new headphone for Logitech though. They don't break, so its cool, but they go into normal headphone jacks, like the Ipod, you might consider that one. THe reason i didnt get them was the adapter that comes with it. That would bug me pretty much. But this one i can't use with my Ipod the other one you could. It's called some Freepulse or something. Look it up on Logitech.
