a little poetry news to pass on. i heard back from Easy Street on my poetry submission from a few weeks ago. they decided to pass. i just love the first email i open up in the morning being a rejection letter. kind of just tells you to buckle up asshole, it's going to be a bumpy one. so, i'm going to take those 5 that were rejected and 3 others and add them to the submission pile for tomorrow (hopefully).
the New York Yankees scored early and often last night, defeating the Tigers 13-4. Gary Sanchez had a monster night and for the first time in 37 games, Aaron Judge didn't have a strikeout. hopefully they can get another win tonight.
Smackdown was pretty good last night. i love that Bobby Roode is now on the show. and i can't wait to see what happens with Shelton Benjamin finally being back in WWE. i think it's pretty obvious they are going to have a Shane McMahon vs. Kevin Owens match sometime soon. i think they missed the boat though by not putting Sami Zayn and Kevin back together. that could have been amazing.
205 Live was pretty good last night as well. i can't wait to see Neville beat the shit out of Enzo on a weekly basis.
Hard Knocks was good last night. it was a short episode, which tells me that Tampa is full of boring ass guys.
Deadliest Catch was sad as fuck last night. i don't think any reality show has dealt with death better than this one.
enjoy some music:
and now some of this and that:
on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Big Brother, Mr. Mercedes, Snowfall and Lucha Underground. i'll watch NXT sometime tonight on WWE Network.
i had to take mom to get some blood work done today for her upcoming cataract surgeries. after that, she wanted to go out to lunch. we went to this sports bar that she likes that we used to go to all the time before she had her hip replaced. lunch was pretty good but i think all of it was a little much for mom. i'm hoping she will start to feel much better once she can actually see again.
i'm really interested to see what group Manchester United is going to end up in tomorrow in the Champions League draw. all i'm hoping for is close games so they don't have a ton of travel and avoid the group of death. please.
the heating and air guy was out here today. everything looks good with the air conditioner. pretty soon, it will be fucking winter i suppose.
i guess school started back up here today. i guess i will have to start driving the speed limit in town again.
i might have the artsy fartsy juices flowing again. i have stacks of magazines and poster boards and scissors. what could possibly happen?
i'll be on here sometime in the afternoon most likely. hopefully i will get the poems out in the morning.
be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.
peace and chicken grease...
