the stages of grief

my mother surprised me today by deciding that she wanted to blow off the afternoon and go out to lunch. and then i happened to remember what day it was. today marks 12 years since my stepfather has passed on. i figured i better be on my best behavior as this day is very hard on her. we had a good lunch, though the place we wanted to go to was crowded as hell. so, we stopped by the sports bar we seem to be going to more often these days. they weren't that crowded but had only 3 waitresses working. damn good thing i was blessed with patience. after that, we did a little grocery shopping and came back home. i'm trying to give her some space as i fully understand there is no timetable or rules to the grieving process.

the Dayton Flyers fell into the same fucking hole they have fallen into so many times this season. once again starting a game with their heads completely up their fucking asses. the only difference this time, they picked the wrong team to fall behind. St. Joe's beat the living shit out of Dayton last night, 79-53. and quite honestly, it never felt like the game was that close. honestly, i didn't watch much after the 8 minute mark of the first half. and i doubt i missed much at all. they play Saturday at home in a MUST win game. i'd like to go and try my neck out at the game. all depends on the weather and how i'm doing. stay tuned.

so, by not watching basketball last night i did watch all of The Voice. i felt like the talent on night 2 was better than night 1. i don't have a favorite yet, though i do enjoy the chemistry between these 4 coaches much better than the original 4 coaches.

as for tonight, i have a couple of shows on FXX i want to watch, Legit and Ali G Rezurection. those both look funny as hell. i imagine i might squeeze in some Duck Dynasty, but if i can't find the time i won't be crestfallen. and as always, a little hockey and maybe some basketball. fantasy hockey is back in full swing, so i have to be on the ball for the push to the playoffs.

after i got home from the grocery store, i sent out 9 poems. 3 each to The Camel Saloon, Dead Snakes, and Pyrokinection. when i hear back from these places i will pass along the verdicts.

my disjointed sleep continues. after i took a shower last night i sat down in my chair to watch the news. next thing i know, it's 2:30 in the morning. so, i made a quick trip to YouTube to see what i missed. this looks like the only thing i really should have stayed up for:
i laughed my ass off at that.

that's all for me today. i hope this finds everyone well. until tomorrow bitches...

  1. My very best to your mom on the sad anniversary and to you as well. It's sweet and lovely that you two were able to be together to quietly acknowledge it. :)
