let me start this out with the usual bullshit Ohio weather update. a quick blast of snow (right now) and then here comes the warm up. in 2 days it is supposed to be in the 50's and raining. and combine that with all the snow melting and the assholes on the local tv are talking about flooding. here's hoping it's biblical, considering the season and all.
just got done watching Sunderland upset Chelsea in Capital One Cup play, 2-1 in extra time. i absolutely love that Chelsea is gone from this competition. of course, Manchester United plays Stoke tomorrow on the road and my glee could very well be anger 24 hours from now.
i did end up winning my NFL.com fantasy game by over 40 points. my reward is to face the #1 overall seed, the same guy that has beat me twice already this season. one more win and i'll be in the championship game. as for the CBS league, i play the #3 seed in the finals. i beat him by over 40 points earlier in the season, not that that means anything at this stage. i'll be a little more hyper paranoid about injury reports and waivers, that's for sure. and the true tricky part is i will be at a basketball game for most of Sunday. more on that later in the week.
i did catch a good portion of The Voice last night. i think all 3 really did a great job. but, i'll still go with Tessanne winning it, seeing that she hit #1 on iTunes last night for her cover of a Whitney Houston song.
Monday Night Raw was really good right up to the bullshit finish of the main event. i really hate when a really great match is ended on a cheap DQ. it's just really lazy booking. almost as lazy as having a fucking run in to set up another angle. the highlight of the night was the exchange between HBK and CM Punk. i flipped out as #2 and #3 on my all time list of wrestlers were going back and forth in a classic verbal exchange.
tonight will be a night of putting groceries away whenever my mother gets home and watching the finale of The Voice. other than that, i don't see me doing much of anything. i've already cleaned the toilets today. i might start wrapping Christmas gifts. that day is sneaking up way faster than i want it to. i believe we're doing Christmas this weekend.
if we do get some epic rain this weekend, i will try to get pictures or video. at the very least, i could see a few poems popping out.
that's all for me. back to being in front of the heaters. the beauty of living in an old farmhouse is no one believed in insulation i think before the 1960's. and my stepfather, god love him, remodeled this on the cheap. that's why it is a holy shit moment anytime the power goes out here in the winter. it's one thing to get snowed in (i was for a week before out here), it's another to try to live out here with no power in the winter. unless you want to burn off a portion of the house, it's not going to be warm at all.
sorry for the random thought tangent. my mind tends to wander when i've got one eye on the screen and one on the window watching for cars.
look for me tomorrow sometime after the United game. hopefully with victory beer in hand.
