nothing like the threat of rain to get some shit done on the farm. the guy who farms out here and whoever else that was with him got 2 1/2 more truckloads of corn off today. of course, the rain moved in faster than anyone expected, so they still have some more to get off. hopefully, when it is all said and done, there will be 2 numbers to the left of the comma this year.
had quite the mindfuck watching The Voice last night. the first 90 minutes had one good performance. but the last 2 performances blew me away. the last one, Jacquie doing a cover of "I Put A Spell On You" was amazing, especially since she's 16 years old. the mindfuck comes from her looking almost identical to the girl, now woman, i have had a crush on since the 7th grade. talk about a flood of nostalgia.
another proving test tonight for the New York Rangers. facing a Penguins team that is better than them by a mile. i'd love to see them get 2 points tonight. but, what i'd like to see more is a team that competes in every aspect of the game. that would go a long way in making me believe that this team will not be denied, injured or not.
another episode of American Horror Story is on tap after the game. hopefully the good streak continues.
other than that, nothing much going on today. i did have to play chauffeur for my mother today as she was feeling a little uneasy driving in the rain and whatnot. that got me out of the house at least. got a postcard in the mail saying i needed to make an eye appointment. even though i have a card saying i had an appointment in 13 days from now. that was an interesting phone call. 3rd year in a row this shit has happened. if my eyes weren't so damn bad i'd just say fuck it, but i'm basically blind without them. but, especially after election day results around here, i get the feeling that i may be out of state soon. so, i'll get to go through the fun of finding all new everything. but that's jumping way ahead in the story. plenty of heartbreak to go before i get to that stage.
looks like all my fantasy teams are lined up for the coming week. not many injury concerns, knock on wood. i'd like to keep the momentum going as i try to ramp up for a deep playoff run. i want to accomplish the double this year. i never have won 2 fantasy football championships in the same season. i'd like to change that.
do check out some of the new feeds on the right hand side of this blog. plenty of new podcasts to choose from.
ok, enough rambling. got a decent nap watching some Champions League soccer this afternoon. so, maybe i'll be up a little later and get some damn writing done.
