yet another day when it's over 90 degrees at noon. i knew it was pretty bad when i went out to feed the cats and none of them greeted me. even after a few whistles, only two of them even bothered to look out of the barn stall. that's a good sign that it was really fucking hot. of course, they are calling for some storms tonight as a cold front is coming. just in time for high school football. good times.
i did watch some of the NFL game last night. i picked the winner right. Seattle looks like they are going to be tough to beat this year. hopefully the Saints can pull it off this season.
Nicole was evicted as i expected last night on Big Brother. and then i got my hopes up that Frankie was going to be next. sadly, that fucker won the POV, so Christine was evicted. they did reveal a new gimmick on the show. if it's anything like the rest of this season, i'm going to be disappointed.
Married was pretty funny last night. You're the Worst was great and had an ending that i didn't see coming. can't wait to see what happens next week.
after a trip to the grocery store later today, i figure i'll be watching the Stand Up to Cancer event on tv tonight. i lost my stepfather to that fucking disease, so i'm sure the emotions will be stirring for me. plus, it's on basically every channel, so there won't be much else to watch.
the Yankees got behind last night but came back to win it late, 5-4. it was nice to see 2 HUGE home runs in the bottom of the ninth to do it. 2 days in a row they have shown they care. now, try doing it against a first place team. they start a series with the Royals tonight.
i've had a fun day dealing with some water issues out here on the farm. usually when a sink is running slow, it means the filter is ready to be changed. i checked the filter, it was mostly clean, but i changed it anyway. that didn't work. so, now i'm guessing there's a buildup of gunk and god knows what else clogging the water. then, a few hours later, the toilets had a hard time flushing. i'm guessing it was an air pocket that was fucking things up. should make my shower interesting here in a few minutes.
i will most likely be working on some poems late tonight as i decided to be a lazy ass for most of today. plus, i think i do my best work at night anyway.
i will probably be on here tomorrow morning at some time. another day full of college football. Ohio State has a decent challenge with Virginia Tech tomorrow. plus, there are some pretty big games for just week 2.
i want to get a shower in before i go to the store. i, at the very least, try to be presentable when i go out into public. clean underwear usually helps in that regard.
so with that lovely visual, i bid you adieu. thanks for allowing me to waste a few minutes of your precious time.
be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.
peace and chicken grease my enemies...
