we're under a winter storm warning as i'm writing this. the warning lasts for the next 33 hours. they are saying we might get some ice but it is more likely we get 4 to 6 inches of snow. even typing it my back starts to hurt. they are rarely ever correct with these reports but i still pay attention to them.
my yesterday was a mixture of the unacceptable to the joy of being freaked out.
Manchester United lost 1-0 at home to Everton for the first time in 21 years. i did get a good laugh when the traveling Everton fans started to chant that David Moyes would be sacked in the morning. from your lips to god's ears. how they manage to finish in the top 4 this season is beyond me. i'm not sure they have enough money to buy the players they actually need to turn this around. the more i talk about it or write about it the more it just enrages me...
the Dayton Flyers won by 10 last night, 56-46. a very frustrating and sluggish game, mostly due to Delaware St. deciding the only chance they had to win was junk defenses and a 3 man weave that took up 20 seconds of every possession. i think Dayton won that game by attrition. didn't help that for long portions of the game Dayton couldn't put the ball in the ocean, let alone the basket.
i did get home in time to watch American Horror Story. what a fucking great episode last night. i knew what was in the box at the end but i certainly didn't expect it to talk. that was fucking fantastic. i can't wait to next week's episode.
i got an email today from Amazon.com saying the rest of my shipment should be here on the 10th. that gives me plenty of time to wrap them in the obituaries.
i also got an email from Sam Roberts last night. kind of spooky that someone a hell of alot more famous than me actually wrote me back. i urge all of you to check out his podcast and tell everyone you know about it. you can find it at notsam.com or on the right hand side of this blog.
tonight will be a busy night on the television. all of this will be going on at the same time. the high school i graduated from will be playing for the state title tonight in football against the high school LeBron James went to. the New York Rangers are playing up in Buffalo in a game they desperately need to win. i have a player on both of my fantasy teams going tonight in the NFL game. plus, The Big Bang Theory is new this evening. how i manage to watch all this and keep it all straight in my head is one of the joys of being crazy.
i've got the last load of my laundry in the dryer. figured i better get that done just in case the weather is worse than these assholes believe it will be.
i did see a new kitten today. looks like it might be a few months old but certainly not one of the ones that went missing. i believe it is one of Whitey's. i almost hope we do get a big snow just to see the cats that were born this summer freak the fuck out.
if we do get a decent snow, i will try to take some pictures. it's always good to share your misery. if the snow gets really crazy, i might get the video camera out and make a quick YouTube video. just need to find the right poem for that, just in case.
that's all for me. i'm hoping for a few victory beers this evening. i'll be on here tomorrow, probably after the snow quits. or whenever it gets bad enough that i'd rather be typing than shoveling.
hope everyone is well and you are doing good in your neck of the woods.
