You think too much. Stop it.Yeah. But what if I like it?

I love taking something and turning it around and around in my head. Looking at it from all angles. Pulling the stray threads to see where they lead, see which thread will unravel the Gordian knot of a problem/situation. Playing the what-if game.
And yeah, I know there's a downside.
I get so wound up in the stray threads that I become one with the problem/situation, so entangled I can't think about anything else. Time passes without me.
The problem is twofold:
- the problem/situation becomes bigger than it needs to be. I ride through one very challenging and frightening mountain pass then in my head they all will be very challenging and frightening mountain passes. They weren't, and I freaked myself out needlessly
- I actually end up talking myself out of something.
Thinking too much.
Can I get the time? It's right at report cards and really busy - do I need the stress? What about money? Bankroll is laughable as it was all spent on the trip, and I still have to pay back the rest of the trip. And we want to get away for the holidays; where's that $$ going to come from?
Etcetera, ad nauseum.
Laid in bed this morning, starting to think about along those lines, then thought, oh no, not going to play this game anymore; life is too damn short. I will not talk myself out of this one.
Don't think. Do.
Asked Keith for some of his airmiles: granted.
Asked work for the time off: granted. I can only get Friday off but hey, that's better than nothing.
Flight arrangements: almost done.
So ignore the waffling you may have heard from me over the last while. I'm going to Vegas, dammit!
P.S. Anyone looking for a roommate? I'm not gender particular. And yes, I can sometimes keep my hands to myself.
I got tired of the poker theme blog look on a blog that is less and less about poker every day. changed the look a bit to last until I get around to moving it over the domain I've had for over a year. Whatcha think? Colours need to be tweaked a bit.
