Inauspicious Chips

The most time consuming aspect of these posts is coming up with a title that thematically links the disjointed but related nuggets of 'wisdom' which follow...

1. Waking up on the right side of bed in a house with one extra person than when you went to sleep is certainly the icing on the cake.

2. A conversation between two people about a very mundane subject can have very different meanings to the very different people on either end.

3. "No cost moves, you should always do."

4. The fewer the number of people, the more important the concept of strength in numbers.

5. Living precariously in the present is far far easier than doing so responsibly with the future in mind.

6. Regularly recurring risks are usually not well thought out and pay off badly in the long run. Like bets on an inauspicious roulette table.

7. When weather is unpleasant, one must forego smoking for the sake of shelter.

8. According to certain powerful minds, cover letters and resumes must never be longer than one page. Ever.

9. "It's just a job."

10. Things very much so happen for a reason.

11. Leaving the chips to fall where they may, may not result in a very favourable outcome. Sometime coaxing the chips into position is necessary.

12. "No more eating chips after a drunken night out."

13. Reading between the lines gets tiring.
