at least it was a dry day...

i guess we got pretty lucky with that ice storm. we only had one tree that got harmed by it. driving to the stores today, i saw plenty of damage from the ice. i guess it was the most ice for November since they started keeping records in the area, the 1880's. i guess there's more of it on the way for the weekend. oh joy.

the grocery store was crazy today, but i was expecting that. i got a small turkey and a decent sized ham for Thanksgiving. i guess mom said we're doing ours on Friday. i had to go to Meijer first to get the stuff i didn't know we were out of until i started doing my laundry yesterday. joy. all in all, i think i kept everything, booze included, under $200.

Vice News Tonight had another great week of shows.

The Big Bang Theory was pretty funny last night.

Young Sheldon was hilarious last night.

Will & Grace was fucking great last night.

when the New York Rangers were up 2-0 last night at the Islanders, i should have stopped watching then. the Islanders outscored the Rangers 7-3 for the rest of the game. oh well.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be VICE, NJPW, Real Time with Bill Maher, Room 104 and Mike Judge Presents: Tales From the Tour Bus.

i do plan on going to the Dayton Flyers game tonight against Purdue Fort Wayne. i don't think mom is going tonight. the game will be on television, so i think that's part of the reason why. the weather is the other.

i'll probably be on here tomorrow before Ohio State plays at noon.

i hope everybody has a great weekend.

just a little bit of ice...

they said there was going to be an ice storm last night. this is what i woke up to:




i haven't even bothered to try to go out and get the morning paper or check for the mail yet. it's supposed to warm up a little this afternoon, so i will venture out then.

the finale of American Horror Story was excellent last night. a few twists and a few returns i wasn't expecting. i couldn't ask for more.

Total Divas was pretty good last night.

NXT was great last night. i can't wait for NXT Takeover: War Games II on Saturday.

205 Live was very good last night as well.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon and Will & Grace.

i did listen to episode 112 of Notsam Wrestling this morning. you can find that by going here:

the New York Rangers play tonight at the Islanders. i'd love to see the Rangers find a way to get a victory tonight.

the USA men's national team plays a soccer friendly this afternoon against England. it's Wayne Rooney's farewell game for England, so i doubt the USA has a chance today.

i've got one more load to do for my laundry. i will hopefully have that in the dryer by the time the USA vs. England match starts.

considering the Dayton Flyers play tomorrow night, i will probably be on here early tomorrow. i'm hoping to get the grocery shopping done in the morning. all of that of course depends on the weather.

i hope the weather isn't as shitty in your neck of the woods.

getting used to not seeing the sun anymore...

i did type up the 3 poems i wrote the other day last night. they are really good. i should get out another round of submissions before Thanksgiving, but should and reality are two different beasts.

i had to go out to the local grocery store to get a few things for mom today. i forget just how gloomy this fucking area gets when fall and winter comes around. joy.

Smackdown was fucking amazing last night. when Becky Lynch chose Charlotte to replace her against Ronda Rousey this Sunday at Survivor Series, i quickly had thoughts of what is coming next. setting up the 4 horsewomen of WWE against the 4 horsewomen of MMA. yes please. and then came the stunning heel turn by Daniel Bryan (thank god) and winning the title from AJ Styles. that sets up a match i never thought i would see this Sunday, Daniel Bryan vs. Brock Lesnar. well, it looks like i will be watching Survivor Series after all. holy shit.

The Voice was good last night. i really don't have any complaints about who moved on and who got sent home. all my favorites are still on the show.

The Jim Jefferies Show was fucking hilarious last night.

i did watch both episodes of NXT UK this afternoon. they were very good.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Total Divas and the season finale of American Horror Story. i'll watch 205 Live and NXT sometime tonight on WWE Network.

the weather is supposed to get shitty here tonight; freezing rain, ice, god knows what else. eventually, it will turn over to rain sometime tomorrow afternoon. so, i figure tomorrow is going to be laundry day.

i'll be on here sometime tomorrow between folding clothes and bitching about a bad back.

a little slice of happiness

my poem "a little slice of happiness" has been published at Academy Of The Heart And Mind. you can find the poem by going here: https://academyoftheheartandmind.wordpress.com/2018/11/13/a-little-slice-of-happiness/

when a couple lines get stuck in your head...

i got a line stuck in my head a couple days ago. i've been trying to write the damn poem for about 48 hours. thankfully, today i finally got the words to flow and become a poem. i ended up writing a total of 3 poems this afternoon. i'll probably type those up sometime tonight.

the New York Rangers won last night over Vancouver, 2-1. i really love the way the boys are playing now.

the live shows for The Voice started last night. i have no damn clue who will get eliminated tonight.

Monday Night Raw was pretty good last night. the end of the show was crazy. i'm not liking what i'm hearing about the latest news on Becky Lynch.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Smackdown, The Jim Jefferies Show and The Voice.

i need to pick up the trash here and next door, so that's basically all for me today kids.

i have no damn clue when i will be on here tomorrow.

oh goody, snow on the way...

first off, rest in peace Stan Lee. my life certainly wouldn't have been the same...

let's start with what Manchester United did against City yesterday. clearly, it wasn't enough or even close to being enough to compete with City. United lost 3-1. oh well.

the New Orleans Saints absolutely destroyed the Bengals yesterday, 51-14. that was a pleasure to watch. that's 8 wins in a row for the Saints.

Ray Donovan was really good last night.

the season finale of Kidding was fucking great last night. i can't wait for season 2.

Axios was excellent last night.

Camping was pretty funny last night.

Last Week Tonight was hilarious as usual.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight and The Voice. i'll be watching Monday Night Raw for most of the evening.

i did watch some of the MLS matches yesterday.

the New York Rangers play tonight at home against Vancouver. hopefully, they can keep on playing good.

i had to run out to the grocery store to get some things for mom this afternoon. the store was a little crazy, which i was expecting since there is snow on the way tonight. i think we're expected to get around a 1/2 inch or so.

i have no idea when i will be on here tomorrow.

i hope everyone had a great weekend.

never forget

to everyone who has served this nation, died in battle, wounded, scarred mentally for your entire lives, etc., happy Veteran's Day. i heard a veteran say last night that never forget means more to a veteran than thanks for your service. so, never forget.

yesterday was one of those days where i laugh that i'm still alive in 2018.

Ohio State defeated Michigan St. yesterday in a god awful game. as soon as i saw Gus Johnson was calling the game, i knew some crazy shit was going to happen. sure enough, Ohio State's punter was easily the best player in the game. it was like the team turned back the clock a decade. and i love that Michigan St. talked all this shit this past week about revenge and could only score 6 points. Ohio State won 26-6.

the Dayton Flyers destroyed Coppin State last night, 76-46. i went to the game alone and honestly, might have said 5 words the entire time i was there. the game was really fucking boring. the conversations around me were as boring. hell, the only excitement for me was the old white woman next to me that had her ass up against my leg for the entire first half. most action i've got in years.

the New York Rangers won in Columbus last night, 5-4 in a shootout. the Rangers have got points in 6 straight games. that's much better than i was fearing this season would start.

Shut Up and Dribble was excellent last night. it went over the LA riots and really focused on Michael Jordan's inaction during the time, and how Craig Hodges and Mahmoud Abdul Rauf got blackballed out of the league for voicing their concerns. i lived through all of this and remember it way too well.

Saturday Night Live was very funny last night.

Austin City Limits was excellent last night.

ROH was really good last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Axios, Camping, Last Week Tonight, Ray Donovan and the season finale of Kidding.

Manchester United plays Manchester City today. if United wins, not only will i be pleasantly shocked, i will be drunk for the rest of the weekend.

the New Orleans Saints play today down the road from me against the Bengals. hopefully, the Saints will keep their winning streak going today.

the muse and i had a fascinating conversation last night that lasted until 4 in the morning. that certainly brought back some memories.

i have no clue when i'll be on here tomorrow. i know most things will be closed to observe Veteran's Day. and, i want to get some writing done. so, probably late afternoon maybe, maybe sooner.

i hope everyone had a great Saturday. hopefully, your Sunday will be even better.

my poem "black lipstick and purple fishnets" has been published at Mad Swirl. you can find the poem by going here: http://madswirl.com/poetry/2018/11/black-lipstick-and-purple-fishnets/

okay, so now winter is here...

when the windchill makes it feel like it is in the single digits, to me at least, that means winter is here. and of course, i was out there in shorts getting the newspaper this morning. good times.

so, i mentioned to the muse last night that Sade had a new song out. you would have thought i told her that i just gave her a million dollars. that brought about a conversation that went to 3 in the morning. honestly, if this woman isn't the one i'm supposed to spend the rest of my life with, i am truly fucking doomed.

the New York Rangers pissed away a 2 goal lead in the 3rd period last night and lost to Detroit, 3-2 in OT. needless to say, i wasn't and still am not fucking happy about it. the Rangers play tonight in Columbus.

VICE was excellent last night.

Mike Judge Presents: Tales From the Tour Bus last night was great. i never knew about the connection between Rick James and Neil Young.

both episodes of Room 104 last night were fucking weird.

NJPW was good last night.

Real Time with Bill Maher was very funny last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Shut Up and Dribble, Saturday Night Live, Austin City Limits and ROH.

Ohio State plays at noon today at Michigan State. if Ohio State wants any chance to make the playoffs this year, they have to win today.

i don't know if mom is going to the Dayton game tonight against Coppin State. i do plan on going, even with the weather being this cold.

if for some reason i don't go to the game, i will probably try to get some writing done tonight.

i will be on here tomorrow before Manchester United plays. that game will go right into the New Orleans Saints game. and i know i won't get a blog done if i wait until both games are over.

i hope everyone has a great Saturday. call if you need bail money.

you would think a blizzard is coming...

i pulled into the parking lot at the grocery store this afternoon and you would have thought there was a blizzard coming. i had to drive around for a few minutes just to find a damn spot. i got inside and there was 4 carts left in there. jesus christ. thankfully, i didn't have much to get. sure, it's colder now and there was a few snow showers this morning, but, it's fucking Ohio. that's called normal.

i thought i did pretty good today considering i had to get gas, go to 2 different grocery stores and the local drug store. i think after all 4 places, i kept everything under $130. i'm sure mom appreciates that.

Vice News Tonight had another great week of shows.

The Big Bang Theory was hilarious last night.

Young Sheldon was great last night.

The Voice was basically a recap show to set everyone up for the live shows next week.

i did watch We Are Not Done Yet last night on HBO. i was very interested to see how the veterans incorporated poetry into their battle with PTSD. it was a very good show.

i did love that the Steelers destroyed the Panthers last night, 52-21. now, if the Saints win on Sunday, they will have a 2 game lead in the division.

i did watch a good portion of Portland vs. Seattle last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be VICE, NJPW, Real Time with Bill Maher, Room 104 and Mike Judge Presents: Tales From the Tour Bus.

i did watch the first episode of season 2 of Tales From the Tour Bus earlier today. i completely forgot it started back up last week. tonight's episode is about Rick James.

the New York Rangers play tonight in Detroit. hopefully they can continue their winning streak.

i will be on here early tomorrow, probably in the morning i suppose. Ohio State plays at noon and then Dayton plays tomorrow night.

i hope everyone has a great weekend.

total darkness

the guy came this morning to install the new blinds. he had them completely installed in under a hour. they are so much better than the other blinds we had. plus, the ones he put in mom's room gives her total darkness. i'm hoping that will help her sleep better.

i didn't get to bed until around 4 this morning. i thought i was being responsible and didn't try to watch everything last night. so i came into my bedroom around 2 in the morning and thought, i should really check my email before i go to bed. 200 emails later and it was 4 in the morning. oh joy.

let's start with the Manchester United game yesterday. when CR7 scored for Juventus with an incredible goal, i kind of just shook my head and figured that was that. thankfully, Mourinho pulled a master class yesterday with his substitutions. when Juan Mata scored on a beautiful free kick to tie the game, i was happy. when a free kick late got put into the net by Juventus to give United the lead, i was fucking ecstatic. both goals came in the last 5 minutes or so of the game. that's exactly the kind of win they needed going into the Manchester derby this weekend. plus, it puts them even closer to making sure they move on in the Champions League.

right after that ended, mom and i went to the Dayton Flyers game. the one thing i am going to hate about our new seats is i am closer to the bench, so i can see the coach of Dayton, Anthony Grant. and that also means, i can see how incompetent he actually is at the job. Dayton was down their senior captain last night, due to injury. so, this genius decides to further fuck the team by not using all of the available players for the game against North Florida. he only played 7 guys. and of course, as what happens when stupid is running the show, 2 of Dayton's players got cramps in the game. honestly, this shit will drive me fucking insane this season. Dayton has the talent to overcome shitty coaching, but that shitty coach just won't let them. Dayton won last night, 78-70. they play again this weekend.

we went to Waffle House after the game. we were the only ones in there this time.

the season finale of Lucha Underground last night was spectacular. the main event was probably the bloodiest match i have seen in years. man, i hope to god there is a season 5.

American Horror Story was really good last night. i hope the season finale next week is even better.

Total Divas was pretty funny last night.

i watched NXT, 2 episodes of NXT UK and 205 Live this morning. all of them were really good, especially NXT.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, We Are Not Done Yet, The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon and The Voice.

i did listen to episode 211 of Notsam Wrestling today. you can find that by going here:
http://notsam.com/wrestlingpodcast/2018/11/8/notsam-wrestling-211-undisputed-era

i might watch some of the NFL tonight or maybe the MLS playoff game tonight between Portland and Seattle. or maybe some NBA as well.

holy fuck, i just made the mistake of seeing the weather forecast for the next few days. the chance for fucking snow. fuck me. of course it might snow tomorrow, i have to go to the grocery store.

i'll be on here sometime in the afternoon tomorrow i suppose.

that's all for me kids.

at least i had other things to watch...

i do love the fact that the Democrats took back the House last night. that should make Trump's life a living hell, especially since that dumb fuck doesn't understand how government actually works. as for Ohio, i'm a little dismayed at the governor's results. i have no clue what this state's fascination with old white men truly is. and since the new governor is totally in the pocket of the insurance companies, i'm sure all of us with pre-existing conditions are fucked in this state. i often think back to the Mark Twain quote... if voting actually mattered, they wouldn't allow us to do it. the only thing that truly made me happy last night was the city of Dayton decriminalizing marijuana.

thankfully, i had plenty of other shit to watch last night.

i did catch some of the Duke vs. Kentucky college basketball game last night. oh shit, Duke looks like a fucking NBA team this year.

the New York Rangers were down 3-1 last night and i was interested to see what would happen next. thankfully, the Rangers scored the next 4 goals to win the game over Montreal 5-3. that's 4 wins in a row. i really like the progress i have seen from the team so far this season. and honestly, the goal Neal Pionk scored last night was fucking beautiful.

Smackdown was very good last night.

The Jim Jefferies Show was fucking hilarious last night.

the season finale of Mayans M.C. was excellent last night. and the ending perfectly sets up season 2.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, American Horror Story, Total Divas and Lucha Underground. i'll watch NXT, NXT UK and 205 Live sometime tonight on WWE Network.

i'm really hoping the DVR doesn't fuck up tonight as i'll be at the Dayton Flyers regular season opener against North Florida. this should be a bit of a test for Dayton's shitty defense as North Florida will shoot a ton of 3's. that being said, i can't imagine Dayton losing tonight.

Manchester United plays at Juventus this afternoon in the Champions League. i will probably watch some of that, hoping for the best. in case you missed the preview of the match, here it is again:

that's pretty much all for me kids. i'll be on here sometime tomorrow after the guys have finished installing the new blinds in the house.
