oh my, after more than 4 hours of sleep...

so, i was able to sleep without being violently woken up overnight. i got somewhere close to 5 hours of sleep total. now, the only problem is my left leg is swollen. and the troubling part of that, the swelling reminds of a decade ago when i had blood clots. so, i'm going to do my best today of staying off my feet. hopefully, that will help the swelling go down. if that doesn't work, i will probably be going to a doctor or a hospital tomorrow. i know if it is a blood clot, i need to catch it as soon as possible. so, if you happen to see nothing on the blog for a few days, there's a good chance that i have been admitted somewhere. good times.

i just watched team USA defeat Canada 4-1 to win the Bronze medal at the World Hockey Championships. Chris Kreider from the New York Rangers scored 2 goals for the USA.

the New York Yankees broke out the long ball last night and defeated the Royals 8-3. the Yankees hit 5 home runs in the game. hopefully they will get the series win this afternoon in Kansas City.

it looks like YouTube isn't playing along with me today, so i don't know how many videos this blog is actually going to have today.

i did watch some the Tampa Bay Lightning defeating Washington last night 3-2. that means the Lighting, or Rangers South, are 1 win away from going to the Stanley Cup Final.

i did watch some of Cleveland destroying Boston last night in the Eastern Conference Finals by 30. Boston is up in that series 2-1 now.

ROH was pretty good last night.

the season finale of Saturday Night Live was pretty fucking hilarious last night. i swear every celebrity in New York City was on the show last night.

Patrick Melrose was excellent last night.

i watched maybe the first 30 minutes of Fahrenheit 451 last night on HBO. it was good but certainly not good enough for me to stay up for.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Billions, I'm Dying Up Here, Westworld, Last Week Tonight, Drop the Mic and Total Bellas.

i will probably watch some of the NBA and NHL playoffs today as well.

i did watch Justify win the Preakness Stakes yesterday. that means there will be a chance for a Triple Crown winner this year.

that's all for me kids. i really do need to get my leg up.

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

my 3 poems at Record Magazine

my poems "in her panties and a long shirt", "the closest thing to happiness" and "ample regrets" have been published at Record Magazine. you can find the poems by going here:
https://magazine-record.blogspot.com/2018/05/in-her-panties-and-long-shirt-i-saw.html

how much worse can this day get

so, a few minutes before 6 AM this morning, i had the most violent cramp in my left leg in my 42 years on this planet. it honestly felt like the lower half of my left leg was leaving my body. my big toe on my left foot was sticking straight up in the air. i'm not sure why i got the cramps. i didn't drink last night. i have this big cup i drink water out of. it's 24 ounces for a full cup. i usually will drink 4 to 7 of those a day. my guess is the cramp was actually caused by diabetic nerve pain. it's been so fucking rainy the last day or so that my left leg feels like it has radiation running through it. it reminds me of when my sciatic nerve was pinched. worst fucking pain in my life. this morning was as close as i have been to that in the last 10 years.

so, since i was up, i fucking watched most of the Royal Wedding this morning. it was fine. i was simply hoping to pass the damn time until the USA played Sweden in the semi-finals of the Hockey World Championships this morning.

Sweden whipped the USA 6-0. that means the USA will be playing for a bronze medal tomorrow morning. and if the current results hold, they will be playing Canada in that game. joy. (Canada got upset by Switzerland today 3-2)

so, probably after my 5th glass of water this morning, i got ready to watch Manchester United play in the FA Cup Final. needless to say, when shit rolls downhill, eventually you come to realize it's never going to fucking stop. United pissed away chance after chance and of course were fucking horrible in the first half. Chelsea scored on a penalty kick that was deserved (fuck you Phil Jones). United played with more desperation in the second half, but that never amounted to shit.
what a fucking waste this day has turned into.

the New York Yankees lost to a shitty Royals team last night, 5-2. hopefully they will get a win tonight.

here are your highlights from the NHL playoffs last night.

VICE was very good last night.

NJPW was pretty good last night.

the main event of Major League Wrestling was great last night.

Real Time with Bill Maher was very funny last night.

Wyatt Cenac's Problem Areas was very good last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be the season finale of Saturday Night Live, Fahrenheit 451, ROH and Patrick Melrose.

i will probably watch some of the NHL and NBA playoffs tonight as well.

i also plan on watching the Preakness Stakes later today.

i'm currently going on just 3 1/2 hours of sleep. so i'm going to crash here soon.

i hope everyone has a better Saturday than me.

no good sleep and rain, what a combination

before i start my bitching about some woman talking to me until 3 in the morning about a fucking scam she was trying to hook me into, a little poetry news to get to.

i heard back from The Beatnik Cowboy on my recent poetry submission. they decided to pass on the 3 poems i sent. i never quite understand the rejection letters when they tell me about how good the poems are. apparently, they weren't quite good enough. oh well. i shouldn't have much of a problem finding a new home for those.

Vice News Tonight had another great week of shows.

the season finale of Life in Pieces was excellent last night.

the season finale of Gotham last night was fucking great. next season, which will be the final season of Gotham, should be amazing.

here are your highlights from the NHL playoffs last night:

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be VICE, NJPW, Major League Wrestling, Real Time with Bill Maher and Wyatt Cenac's Problem Areas.

the New York Yankees start a series at the Royals tonight. it will be nice to see the Yankees play again actually.

i will probably watch some of the NHL playoffs tonight as well.

we got over an inch of rain this morning. it was a fucking joy to go to the grocery store while that was happening. at least by the time i got out of the store it was basically just a persistent drizzle. of course, i took a wrong step walking into the store. so my right foot was killing me the entire time i was in the grocery store. and the fucking store keeps moving shit around. just a pain in the fucking ass.

but at least the toys were on sale today. mom laughed when she saw those with the groceries. i'm not one that will turn down a buy 1 get 1 free sale on the good shit.

so this woman in Nigeria last night was telling me her university needs me to open an account here in the USA so they can send me money so i can turn around and send that money to the woman in Nigeria. now, i do know, or at least i think i know, this woman is a student at said university in England. she's on some work study in Nigeria, supposedly. so, i played along and asked her to send me some paperwork that the school surely would have sent her so i can make sure this is official and everything. i told her if i didn't have that paperwork by tonight, i know this is a fucking scam. which i will then around and report her and block her so i won't be entertaining myself at 3 in the morning again with this bullshit. and this is all due to me wanting my Google Hangouts to be public so if someone actually reads something of mine and wants to contact me about it, they can do so and i will gladly get in touch with them.

i need to go ice my back down.

i hope everyone has a great weekend. i guess there's some fucking big deal wedding tomorrow or something. the more important thing... i'll be on here tomorrow after Manchester United plays Chelsea in the FA Cup Final. hopefully, i will be in a good mood.

squeezing something that looks like marrow out of life

so the phone call with my best friend went better than i thought it would yesterday. i can't imagine getting a cancer diagnosis on your 45th birthday. of course, ask me again in 3 years. i think she's going to get the help she needs and be in a better place on the other side of it. at least, that's my fucking hope.

i did write 7 poems today. mom cancelled her physical therapy, so i wrote them at home. as you might imagine, they are pretty fucking dark. i really like a few of them. i believe that puts me at 40 poems for the month. that's a pretty decent pace so far. i typed the poems up after i got done feeding the birds today. amazingly, the hot pepper suet i put out for them almost lasted 4 damn hours. they treat it like crack, it's amazing.

the New York Yankees were rained out last night. so, they will have to go back to Washington D.C. to make up the suspended and rained out game against the Nationals in June. the Yankees are off tonight and start a series at Kansas City tomorrow night.

NXT was really good last night.

Being Serena was very good last night as well.

here are your highlights from the NHL and NBA playoffs last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, the season finale of Gotham and the season finale of Life in Pieces.

i will probably watch some of the NHL playoffs tonight as well.

i did listen to the latest Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast today. you can find that by going here:

i put out the hummingbird feeders today. i'm hoping to see some here soon. i'd love to try to get some video of it. if that ever happens, i'll definitely post it on the blog.

i'll be on here tomorrow after i go to the grocery store. mom has already told me i'll be doing the shopping by myself tomorrow. that should make it a little more interesting.

and then cancer comes in the room and bums everyone out...

i have a sign in my room that says i get my cardio by running from adult responsibilities. today might be the day i run for a few miles. my best friend sent me a message this morning i never wanted to hear from her. the mass in her left breast is cancer and they need to remove the whole breast. we got into a little argument last week when i brought up this possibility. now that it is actually here, i know my tough love approach won't work. this is when i need to be the compassionate listener. now, that's something i do well, but when a person just a few years older than myself is facing this, i know all my listening will turn into me facing my own mortality. i joke all the time i do all i do for my mother so i get to stay in the will. she said something about it yesterday and i quickly snapped back with the unfortunate reality we all know... none of this will do me any good if i die first. that brings up a topic in most of my poems, the race to death. i have to call my best friend later this afternoon. i figured i would get the blog done before that fucking cry fest begins. she's one of the few humans on the planet that tells me she loves me and actually means it. it figures she'd have cancer. god hates me.

the New York Yankees got down 3-0 last night at the Nationals. they clawed their way back to get it to 3-3 and then the fucking rain came. and it never stopped. so the game was suspended until 5 PM tonight. they will try to finish the game from yesterday and then play the game they had scheduled for tonight. of course, it's supposed to rain tonight in D.C. so who the fuck knows if they will even get to play at all.

i was pleasantly surprised last night when the Sacramento Kings got the #2 pick in the NBA Draft Lottery. of course, i immediately wondered how they will fuck this up. hopefully, that doesn't happen.

Smackdown was pretty good last night.

205 Live was really good last night.

The Voice was good last night. i had 3 of the 4 finalists i chose correct. and seeing that the only one i had wrong was the one i had fifth, i'm really fine with the Final 4. i would love to see Kyla or Spensha win, but my gut says Britton will win this.

Deadliest Catch was really good last night.

The Chris Gethard Show was fucking great last night.

The Jim Jefferies Show was hilarious last night.

here are your highlights from the NHL and NBA playoffs last night:

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight and Being Serena. i will watch NXT sometime tonight on WWE Network.

i will probably watch some of the NHL and NBA playoffs tonight as well.

i'm getting ready to watch some of the Europa League Final to take my mind off things for a bit.

plus, there is rain in the area, so my arthritis is raging at the moment. joy.

i have no idea if mom is going to her physical therapy appointment tomorrow or not. she's still coughing her head off at the moment. if she does, i'll be on here tomorrow after that. if she doesn't, i might have a little writing session and then i'll be on here. i can't imagine what would be on my mind to write about.

that's all for me today kids.

so long Mr. Wolfe

i have been running around like 9 cats trying to cover up shit in a windstorm today. but, before i get to all that, i need to give a proper goodbye to one of my favorites.

so long Tom Wolfe. you were one of the greatest and one of the few that absolutely lived the fuck out of their life. you will never be forgotten.
i have made two different trips to the grocery store today. first was to get my pills. mom had a doctor's appointment this afternoon. when we got home from that, i did the trash and then had to go back to the grocery store to get her pills. good times. i also got gas for the car and bought a late lunch all between running around. that's why i'm just now starting the fucking blog when i should be kicking back and watching the Yankees game.

The Voice was really good last night. i think i know who the final four will be tonight.

Monday Night Raw was pretty good last night.

here are your highlights from the NHL and NBA playoffs last night:

i'll probably watch a little of the NBA and NHL playoffs tonight as well.

i did write 3 poems today. i typed them up early this afternoon and really like them. i have my eye on a few places to send to. i might squeeze out another submission or two before the month is over.

i have no damn clue when i'll be on here tomorrow.

there are storms in the area. of course, we're not getting any rain. but i still get the fucking pain from my arthritis. let's just say i'll be drinking tonight.

rest in peace Lois Lane

i had my first drinks with alcohol in them last night in weeks. i certainly had less than what i had been drinking. it's funny, it still fueled me to staying up until almost 4 in the fucking morning. my blood sugar was normal when i woke up less than 4 hours later. all seems well. so back on the fucking train.

i took advantage of the Yankees rain delay yesterday to watch the rest of Dunkirk. i liked the movie. the cinematography was great. you could really tell that this was Christopher Nolan's passion project. it will be on the DVR for awhile.

the New York Yankees won over Oakland yesterday, 6-2. that's the seventh straight series the Yankees have won. they are off today and start a quick 2 game series at the Nationals tomorrow.

here are your highlights from the NHL and NBA playoffs yesterday:

Westworld was fucking great last night.

the season finale of Silicon Valley was excellent last night.

the season finale of Barry was great last night.

Last Week Tonight was fucking brilliant as always.

Billions was really good last night.

I'm Dying Up Here was excellent last night.

Drop the Mic was better than i thought it was going to be last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

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

i'll probably check out some of the NHL and NBA playoffs tonight as well.

i laughed when i out to get the paper this morning. apparently, my sister thought that someone else was going to put the weeds she pulled yesterday in the trash. they were still in the spot she left them in when she left yesterday. thankfully, i was out there before it got fucking hot today.

i'll probably be on here tomorrow after a trip to the grocery store. i'll have some pills of my own to pickup and i'll need to buy more tissues, as mom's allergies have her going through a box a day basically. good times.

i hope everyone had a good weekend.

happy mother's day

to all the mothers out there, Happy Mother's Day.
i think mom liked what my sister and i got her. other than her allergies screwing with her, i think this has been a pretty good Mother's Day this year.

Manchester United won this morning 1-0 over Watford. it was the final game of Michael Carrick's career. he served the club well over his 12 seasons. all that is left for United this season is to win the FA Cup against Chelsea on Saturday. if they win that, then second in the league to City is a little bit more tolerable.

the New York Yankees won 7-6 in 11 innings yesterday. they ended their little losing streak. hopefully they will start another winning streak and win another series today against Oakland. they are currently in a rain delay. joy.

Saturday Night Live was hilarious last night.

ROH was pretty good last night.

i watched the first 10 minutes of Dunkirk last night and knew i was going to fall asleep during it. so, i'm saving the rest of it for a rainy day.

Patrick Melrose was brilliant last night. i think i'm really going to enjoy this show.

here are your highlights from Winnipeg vs. Las Vegas last night:

response from Synchronized Chaos

i heard back from Cristina at Synchronized Chaos on the poems i sent earlier today. my poems "what my tombstone should say", "get it over with", "to the brink", "a feeble desire" and "for a lost poet in arkansas" have been accepted for publication. they will appear in the June issue. these are the same poems that got rejected from Philosophical Idiot.

poetry update

i sent out 43 poems today; 3 each to Pyrokinection, The Beatnik Cowboy, Rusty Truck and Mad Swirl; 5 each to Synchronized Chaos, Fourth & Sycamore, Otoliths, Horror Sleaze Trash and Easy Street; 6 poems to Record Magazine. when i hear back from these places i will pass along the verdicts.

trying to find the energy...

i was hoping to feel much better this morning. sadly, i still have a bit of a cough that is draining the life out of me. so much for doing my laundry and getting the poems out before noon today. if i have them done by the time Saturday Night Live comes on tonight, i'll be mildly surprised. if that does happen, you might actually get two blogs out of me today.

the New York Yankees pitching fucking sucked last night. they lost to Oakland 10-5. hopefully they will do better this afternoon.

here are your highlights from Game 1 between Washington and Tampa Bay last night:

NJPW was excellent last night.

Major League Wrestling was pretty good last night.

VICE was really good last night.

Real Time with Bill Maher was pretty funny last night.

Wyatt Cenac's Problem Areas was excellent last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Saturday Night Live, ROH, Patrick Melrose and Dunkirk.

i will probably watch some of Game 1 between Winnipeg and Las Vegas tonight as well.

i just found out my best friend has a growing mass in her left breast. this is going to be a much tougher weekend than i thought.

i need to get my laundry started and start getting these poems out.

i hope everyone has a great weekend.

on the way back...

i was actually able to sleep in my own bed last night and not cough myself awake every couple minutes. i got close to 6 hours of sleep. i've only had a few coughing fits today, so i want to believe the worst is over. so that means i'm going to be busy as fuck this weekend catching up on everything; mostly poems and laundry.

the grocery store was really picked over by the time mom and i got there. hell, i had to go to the smaller grocery store in town to get my bread. and they are still moving shit all around at the main grocery store we go to. i had the whole fucking store memorized and now it's changed. i figure once i get that down, they'll change it again. the fuckers.

the New York Yankees lost last night to Boston, 5-4. they were down 4-0 and came back to tie the game. of course, Aaron Boone made the mistake of allowing Betances to go out for his second inning of work and he gave up the winning run. oh well. the Yankees did win the series against Boston and are still tied for first place in the division. they start a series at home tonight against Oakland.

Vice News Tonight had another great week of shows.

the season finale of The Big Bang Theory was excellent last night.

the season finale of Young Sheldon was very good last night.

Gotham was fucking amazing last night. the ending certainly set up what should be a very entertaining season finale next week.

the season finale of Atlanta was great last night.

here are your highlights from Game 7 last night between Nashville and Winnipeg:

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be VICE, NJPW, Major League Wrestling, Real Time with Bill Maher, Wyatt Cenac's Problem Areas and Kevin Smith: Silent But Deadly.

i'll probably watch some of the NHL playoffs tonight. Game 1 between Tampa and Washington should be a good one.

the pollen count here lately has been off the fucking charts. that certainly isn't helping me fight this fucking cold. i think that's why it has taken me so long. at least that's the theory i'm going with.

my sister is coming down tomorrow to spend most of the weekend here for Mother's Day. i guess i should get the rest of what i'm giving mom ready.

i hope everyone has a great weekend. i'll probably be on here early tomorrow. i will probably spend a good portion of tonight and early tomorrow sending out poems.

that's all for me kids.

thanks for the sleep boys

i wasn't expecting to take a nap this afternoon, but thanks to Manchester United, i got a good one in. their listless 0-0 draw against West Ham was truly boring. other than a few moments here and there, i'm happy i slept through most of it.
that 1 point for the draw gives Manchester United second place in the Premier League. the clean sheet also means that David De Gea has won the Golden Glove this season.

the New York Yankees won again last night, 9-6 over Boston. to think this team started the season 9-9 and is now 26-10 is fucking amazing. they haven't had a stretch like this since 1953. CC is on the hill tonight as the first place Yankees go for the sweep of Boston.

here are your highlights from the NBA playoffs last night:

NXT was pretty good last night.

Being Serena was excellent last night. it certainly brought back some memories of my time in the hospital for blood clots and pulmonary embolisms. good times.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News tonight, the season finale of The Big Bang Theory, the season finale of Young Sheldon, Gotham and the season finale of Atlanta.

i will probably watch some of Game 7 tonight between Winnipeg and Nashville.

i did listen to the latest Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast this morning. you can find that by going here:
http://notsam.com/wrestlingpodcast/2018/5/10/wrestling-podcast-185-tom-phillips

mom's allergies were so bad today she had to cancel her physical therapy appointment. that allowed me to get a little extra sleep today. i think i got about 6 hours total. i do feel much better. i still have a little bit of a cough now and then. but, i'm not coughing my head off or bringing up much anymore. so, hopefully i will be good to go by the weekend.

the gift i ordered for Mother's Day arrived today. i was starting to worry it wasn't going to be here before the weekend.

that's all for me kids.

i'll be on here sometime after a trip to the grocery store tomorrow.

perhaps rock bottom has been hit...

i think i have coughed more in the last 24 hours than i have in most of my 42 years on this fucking planet. i'm hoping that's rock bottom and the only way to go from here is up. i went and got the pills my doctor said i could use and wouldn't affect my liver at all. i had to go get them or my mother was going to sneak out and get them from me. so, that's why this blog started 30 minutes later than i wanted to today. the asshole son had to tell his mother it's okay to allow the asshole to be an adult. good times.

i might have got a little over 4 hours of sleep last night. considering that's about what i get when i'm healthy, that's a good sign. i would love if i could actually sleep in a bed again before the weekend rolls around.

and i'm so fucking behind on getting the poems out there... if i'm better by the weekend, i know what i'll be doing.

the New York Yankees won last night, 3-2 over Boston. the Yankees are now tied for first place in the division. that also means they are tied for the best record in baseball. the last time the Yankees won 16 out of 17 games was in 1953. they play again tonight.

i was not happy with one of the people that got sent home last night on The Voice. Christiana absolutely should have been saved last night.

Smackdown was really good last night. imagine that, a wrestling show that actually shows mostly wrestling. concept.

205 Live was excellent last night.

Deadliest Catch was really good last night.

The Jim Jefferies Show was hilarious last night.

The Chris Gethard Show was fucking bizarre last night. it also reminded me why i miss smoking weed so much.

here are your highlights from the NBA playoffs last night:

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight and Being Serena. i'll watch NXT sometime tonight on WWE Network.

i'll probably watch some of the NBA playoff game between Boston and Philadelphia tonight as well.

i'll probably be on here tomorrow after mom's physical therapy session and after Manchester United plays.

i took the pills i got today right before starting to write this. they are supposed to make me drowsy. once again, i'm probably the exception to the fucking rule.

that's all for me kids.

diría rezar por mí, pero eso no funciona

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...

a bit of good news...

well, after a mere 3 hours of sleep last night, i decided i had to go to the doctor. thankfully, i was able to get an appointment this morning. i thought it was going to be with one of the nurse practitioners in his practice. little did i know, it was with him. we talked about my liver some. he said while my levels were elevated, they weren't high enough to be of much concern. so guess who is going back to drinking? he offered me either pills or shots for my cold. i said since they were taking blood from me today anyway, might as well give me the shots. so his assistant, the one who looks like a crush i had in my early teens, gave me two shots; an antibiotic and a steroid. the doctor said that should do the trick. hopefully, he is right.

after i got home, i had to take mom to go vote. after that, we went to the post office. amazingly, the mail got delivered here before fucking noon.

i figure the drugs they put me are going to make me tired soon. or at least i hope.

The Voice was really good last night. i have no clue which two are going to be eliminated tonight.

Monday Night Raw was pretty good last night.

here are your highlights from the NHL and NBA playoffs last night:

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, The Voice, Smackdown, Deadliest Catch, The Jim Jefferies Show and The Chris Gethard Show. i'll watch 205 Live sometime tonight on WWE Network.

the New York Yankees start a series at home against Boston tonight. the Yankees are 1 game out of first place in the division. hopefully they can keep the winning streak going.

i'll probably watch a little of the NBA playoffs tonight as well.

i still have the trash to pick up here and next door.

i do feel a little better than i have. i'm still coughing a bit, but not nearly as bad as it was this morning.

i have no clue when i'll be on here tomorrow.

that's all for me kids.

con suerte dormiré más de unas pocas horas esta noche

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...
