yesterday was one of those days you can only believe by living through them. thank god i'm a writer. so much shit to write about. to make it quick...
mom wanted to get out of the house so i had her drive me to the record store to sell some of my music. while in the store i come across a guy with an eye patch, a black kid trying to sell a broken video game system for drug money, and a staff of hipsters that were all thinking of other shit. i didn't make as much as i wanted, but i was happy to get rid of shit i don't listen to anymore. then, mom wanted to get something to eat, an early dinner of sorts. considering it was around 4:30 in the afternoon i now know what i have to look forward to if i dare live past 50. while in the place, it starts to rain. and rain. and rain some more. after waiting for nearly 30 minutes, we both decided fuck it, we're not going to melt. racing to the car was great until i realized the parking lot was starting to flood. thank god i had some decent shoes on. after we made it out of there we headed back home. after a long night of television and some more alcohol, i get an instant message from the muse. needless to say, 20 minutes later i'm on the phone until 4 in the morning with a woman slowly dying (figuratively) in some wicked heat. i haven't written those poems yet, but that will happen.
during my television time last night, i did write two more poems. both about the events of the afternoon. i typed up those 2 and my one from yesterday this morning. i LOVE these three poems. i can't wait to send these out.
Monday Night Raw was pretty good last night. letting the younger generation shine is paying off for them. plus, it's never a bad show in Montreal. the best sign for me is that it didn't feel like it was 3 hours long.
the Yankees won last night 5-3. had a rookie make his first major league start. he went 6 innings, only giving up 2 runs. hopefully, he stays up. their rookie phenom in the bullpen got his first ever save. all in all, a good evening. they play again tonight in Cleveland.
also tonight is Deadliest Catch and Tyrant. i'm looking forward to both of those.
the World Cup starts back up today. Germany vs. Brazil. not much more needs to be said. i'm going to be very interested to see how Brazil plays without Neymar. i wouldn't be shocked if this one goes into extra time. i have Brazil advancing. of course, i made that pick long before the injuries started to happen. i honestly don't know who is going to win this match. i just hope to be entertained by it.
i'm hoping the rain is over for the day. we had some wicked storms move through this morning. thankfully, i slept through most of them.
i guess i should get out there and see if we had any damage or see how many cats ran away. it's always fun when they run up into the front woods and then can't figure out how to make it back up to the barns. 3 weeks later they eventually show up, malnourished beyond belief. i have to keep reminding myself they aren't the sharpest tool in the box.
hope this finds everyone well. hope you enjoy the game today. and if you aren't enjoying the beauty of the World Cup, i don't think i really want to know you. unless you have money and love my writing. if that is the case, you are forgiven.
peace and chicken grease my enemies...
