trying to find the relief that death surely brings

have i ever told you how life is with a bad back? have i told you the utter joy of when that bad back seizes up when you're in the middle of taking a shit? have i told you how hard it is to lift 40 pounds of salt for the water treatment in the cellar when it's nearly impossible to walk erect? as you can surmise, my day has been fucking painful to say the least. but, i still managed to get some shit done.

i did type up the 5 poems i wrote the other day. i think they are pretty good. i'd like to get one more batch done before i send out some more submissions. i'm hoping this weekend provides the ammunition.

i also managed to get the dishes done today. how i managed to stand for 20 minutes in this pain, i'm not so sure. i know i have an unreal pain tolerance, but at times it gets pretty fucking ridiculous.

i managed to get 9 of the 12 right on The Voice last night. not too shabby. 2 of the guys i got wrong i am pretty happy for as i wanted them to stay but thought they had no chance at all.

the New York Rangers got another win last night. they are back to .500 now. 3rd place in the division, which is where they will need to finish to be guaranteed of making the playoffs this year. i really like how they have turned the season around. below are the highlights from last night:

i'm off to a decent start in fantasy football. i did watch a good portion of the college football games last night. but, ultimately, i paid the most attention to the MLS playoffs. was a busy sports night to say the least.

my afternoon tomorrow will be spent at the home opener for the University of Dayton men's basketball team. hard to fucking believe it's already basketball season. hopefully they get off to a really good start this year. they are not supposed to do anything according to the experts, so i'm really hoping this is the year they stick it to everyone for not including them in the new Big East conference.

i suppose i will blog about that and other things when i get home tomorrow. all i'm hoping to do tonight is survive a shower and shave and not end up in the fetal position. looks like my sports Sunday is actually going to be more chaotic than tomorrow is going to be.

that's all for me today. i hope everyone has a great weekend. may the creative fire burn inside of you and let it not just be indigestion.
