before i start bitching about how the rain and my scar tissue just don't mix, here is your national poetry month link of the day:
we probably got around an inch or more of rain this morning. and not the slow, constant rain that farm fields really enjoy. this was a pounding rain with some thunder. needless to say, i have been in misery for most of the day. haven't gone for the pain pills just yet, but i'm close.
i did send out some poems today. 3 each to Dead Snakes and The Camel Saloon and 4 to Luciferous. when i hear back from these places i will pass along the verdicts.
the New York Yankees offense is missing in action. they lost again last night 3-1. if they get swept tonight i would expect a few people to start strapping themselves to the bridges. hopefully the bats can start driving in runners in scoring position (this has only been a problem for a few years now) and they can get the taste of winning back.
the New York Rangers play in Colorado tonight. they are 3 points away from clinching a playoff spot. so, with a win tonight and a Capitals loss or overtime loss tomorrow, the Rangers are in before the weekend. got a little update on their best d man today... he's day to day but there was no structural damage. so, i'm going to assume that he's not playing tonight, which affects my fantasy hockey team. and considering i'm already trailing in the championship round, i had to make a move for tonight. so, that truly begins the grind.
Legit and Ali G were pretty fucking funny last night.
i do believe The Big Bang Theory is new tonight. i'll get that in before the sports start tonight.
i fell asleep during the second half of the USA vs. Mexico friendly last night. sadly, it was after Mexico came back to tie the score. i would have been fine falling asleep when the USA was leading 2-0. instead, it finished 2-2. if the USA could simply play like they did for the first half in the World Cup, they actually might stand a chance in the group of death.
got a few more cartoons today from Janne Karlsson. they are simply genius. if i can't find a publisher for them i may just have to dust off the wallet and put them out myself.
that's all for me today kids. i'll be on here tomorrow after the second round of submissions go out.
be well, be good, be bad, be drunk, be disorderly, be the revolution...
