i was somewhat amazed this morning when i woke up. i actually got almost 7 hours of sleep last night. it still feels somewhat weird to wake up refreshed.
we're in the midst of a warm up here in Ohio. might even hit 60 degrees in a few days. of course, in true Ohio tradition, there is a chance of snow on the weekend.
thankfully, i had a much better Sunday picking games than i did the week before. to go from only 5 wins to sitting on 12 going into tonight's game is quite the jump. and tonight is a huge game. i am trailing in both of my fantasy matches but i have 4 players going tonight, including both quarterbacks. i really hope the game is a shootout as i really need the points.
other than that, it will be the usual busy Monday night on tv. the New York Rangers are at home against Winnipeg. it would be nice to see them start rolling here soon. The Voice is down to the final 6. i have no clue who is going to win. just 2 weeks left for this season. Monday Night Raw should be an interesting one. been hearing rumors all day of people showing up for tonight's show. if any of them are true, it could be a memorable evening.
i found out today my mother has a fractured rib. thankfully it's non-displaced. only thing that will heal it is time. so, it's more or less a pain management issue. i've suggested to her to start drinking whiskey. always helped me over the years.
i nearly shit today when i saw the Dayton Flyers were ranked in the AP top 25 for the first time in 4 years. they start on a nice run of games they should win on Wednesday. it would be nice to see they aren't satisfied with just being ranked but actually want to destroy other teams.
my other holy shit moment of the day was when the New York Yankees announced they traded Chris Stewart to the Pirates for a player to be named later. goodbye to the human white flag. thank god.
Homeland was really good last night. but, Masters of Sex won the night in my eyes. their best episode in some time. really, really good. Total Divas really made me laugh. like i needed more of a reason to not like John Cena... and it's good to see the divas really are clueless at times.
thankfully, the mountain of trash i put out yesterday didn't get scattered around by the wind last night. and it was all picked up this morning. probably a good 100 lbs. of shit gone for good.
looks like the first of the gifts i ordered should be arriving here soon. can't wait to hear the bitching as i believe i had them all sent to the po box. good times.
that's all for me today. tune in tomorrow as i come up with yet another reason why i didn't spend the afternoon writing instead of looking at porn.
