i woke up this morning to temps around 28 or so and a light dusting of snow covering the grass and fields. thankfully the corn got harvested before this cold front came barreling through. i believe this may be our best corn yield since i have lived out here. hard to believe that's 16 years now.
i got a really good deal on some wine today. i couldn't pass on 6 bottles for under $60.
i'm still kicking myself over fantasy football this past week. the match i was losing by 11 i ended up losing by 3. that left me a bit sore as the winning points were on my bench. i'll have to make that game up quickly if i'm going to make the playoffs. and i had a horrible week picking games, 7-7. yikes.
i did watch most of The Voice last night. only a handful of the 12 performances were great in my opinion. with that much mediocrity i have no clue who is going to be in the bottom 3 tonight. should make for an interesting show.
i didn't watch much of Monday Night Raw last night. it was taped in Manchester, England so i knew what was going to happen from the live reports online. i did catch portions of the last hour. anytime you have The Shield, The Wyatt Family, CM Punk, and Daniel Bryan involved in something, i'm going to be watching. can't wait to see what all those guys produce.
tonight is a pretty big sports night. a couple of huge early season college basketball games that should be pretty entertaining. and while that is going on, the New York Rangers are playing the Devils tonight. my blood might get a little boiling this evening. hopefully the Rangers can keep the good streak they have been on going with a win over those fuckers this evening.
after i did the dishes this afternoon and watched some porn, i went through the poems and decided on which 16 i'll be sending out here in a few days. probably no later than Friday. my apologies in advance to the editors, etc.
sadly, for the second time, i believe my cat Gizmo 2.0 is once again dead. all the cats (14 of them) were present this morning, minus 2.0, which was what i was expecting since a good number of them have never seen snow before. if that cat shows up again ( i haven't seen it in over a month now, it was gone for 2 or 3 months last time) i will have no choice but to think that cat has evil powers. yes, i've been drinking.
found out today my mother will need surgery in the spring (could be sooner but she doesn't want to miss any basketball games) for the problem in her ears. wasn't thrilled when i saw that 1 of 4 people that have it end up losing their hearing permanently as a result of it.
lastly, i did watch a bit of the Hockey Hall of Fame inductions last night. whenever i decide to actually get a fucking passport, maybe i'll get up to Toronto to actually go to the place this time. i was up there when i was 13 but my father decided going there wasn't worth the time. can't imagine why i have hated that man for the majority of my life.
and on that uplifting note, i bid everyone a fond farewell. hope everyone is doing well or faking it good enough that no one suspects anything.
