the sun is out and i'm stuck indoors

another day of editing and doing some laundry. you wouldn't think that would involve much stress. you'd be wrong. i might have some more news on that later. maybe not.

i did go to the Dayton Flyers game last night. amazing what a few hard practices, a huge slice of humble pie and a change in the starting lineup will do for a team. a nice 6 point come from behind win last night that i totally didn't expect. even though Las Vegas had them as 4 1/2 point favorites. felt bad for my mom sitting there with all the noise. she's having some problems with her hearing here recently. praying that it's not the worse case scenario, but none of us will know until later this month. the next game is this Saturday at 11 AM against Temple. not exactly thrilled to be going to a game that early, but, that's the joy of ESPNU.

i only got to watch the first half of the USA vs. Honduras World Cup Qualifier yesterday. i'm pretty disappointed they lost and now have put themselves in a pretty bad spot. a must win game before they travel to Mexico. they better be going there with 3 points in the bank or any chance of getting in the World Cup would be in serious jeopardy.

quick update on the editing job. it appears i have been fired. good to know the rest of my month is now free. i do wish you the best with the book Debbie. it will be good no matter which unlucky soul gets to edit it.

unseasonably warm here today. up around 50 or so. that would be nice if i didn't have about 3 inches of mud to trudge through to feed the cats. speaking of weather, best of luck to all my friends in the northeast. hopefully the storm won't be as bad as they are thinking it will be.

quick poetry update: my poem "the lost art", which was supposed to be included in Zygote #140 will be appearing in issue #141 due to some technical difficulties. i'll post a link when that gets published in March or somewhere around there.

i'm planning on watching the New York Rangers play tonight, around the usual Thursday night programming. hopefully i won't be bored with the hockey team as much as i was the other day. of course, until they fix their special teams, it will simply be a repeat of the same old shit from the end of last year. score first and hang on for dear life.

hope this finds everyone well. a special thanks to Primetime Sam Roberts for the multiple mentions of me and this blog in his podcast #42. you can find out more about the podcast and his other radio shows by going to
