WSOP...

is over for me. I spent a few hours there last night and didn't make a dime. The energy is so negative at that place, it drains me just to walk around. I don't need to do that to myself, my time is more precious than that. Just think, I could have been home, blogging! ;)

I chatted with several other therapists and they concur: World Series of Poker SUCKS!

So it's not just me, yay! The company we work for hyped it so much in orientation that everyone is feeling let down. Plus they also hired 100 MORE therapists for this year's event than for last year's. What kind of moron thought THAT was a good idea in the current economic climate?!

The same few therapists are apparently getting most of the massages, which leads to resentment aplenty, let me tell you! And while almost all of us exchange smiles if not actual greetings while we pass each other in our futile rounds of the tournament rooms, a very few therapists are working on perfecting their Death Stares™.

This amuses me to no end. What, you think you can glare me into submission, which will automatically make the next poker player ask YOU for a massage?!

Doofus.

It's been a valuable experience for me, or at least that's what I'm telling myself, but I'm glad it's over. Now I only have two jobs to worry about!

Ye live 'n' learn!
Having two jobs is enough to worry about anyway.

You can sleep much better, and more, huh? :) You should celebrate...

Roismhaire, I agree!

Chaos, I worship sleep...

Hey... Totally OT, but... I had lunch with SN1's extended family (my DIL's relatives) yesterday and about mid-way through lunch the topic somehow switched to massage and massage therapists. You'll be gratified to know that everyone raved about the therapeutic benefits of massage and the general wonderfulness of their LMTs. I just sat back and listened, thinking you would have LOVED to have been a fly on the wall.

And now ya know. Screw the WSOP.

AWESOME, Buck! Thanks for sharing that with me, it gave me a much needed boost. :)
