Sleepy Friday

Yeesh! All the late nights this week caught up to me today–slept until eleven, had breakfast, then took a nap before my 2pm appointment. I don’t think it was enough, ’cause it felt like the walk across the parking lot was 20 miles instead of, you know, a parking lot. Then the Coffee Bean gave me a regular latte instead of vanilla, so that happened. Blech.

But at least I got in some practice at the pool hall after my appointment, which was necessary since I’d missed league this week thanks to excessive working. I practiced draw shots and shots on balls frozen on the rail (which I used to be good at, but have been sucking mightily at lately).

Mostly I’m just happy to be home, chilling on the couch and watching more of Lost Girl. (Don’t judge me.)

Thank gawd it’s only Friday!

Improving my 8-ball game

Totally spaced on posting yesterday, sorry about that.

League was last night–another two-win night, not that great. Talking to Delayne made me realize I’ve been ignoring a valuable tool for learning more–YouTube. I’ve been reading a lot, and asking questions from the better players in the league, but really, how could I forget about the wealth of info to be found on YouTube?

Having since corrected my lapse, I’ve learned that my stroke probably sucks, I’ve been under-appreciating the importance of the tangent line, and I tend to aim too low for the ever-troublesome draw shot. Here’s one of the videos that I think is particularly well-done (despite the frequent misspelling of “possible”):

Who knows, maybe this is the season I’ll learn how to make a jump shot!
