once the fog burned off this morning, the sun actually was there. shocking after the last few days. it warmed up nicely today, enough that i opened the windows. plus, i was doing my laundry, so some fresh air was certainly needed. my last load just went in.
i heard back from Presa Press on my poetry submission from last week. they don't publish the magazine anymore, only a few books each year. whoops. i guess i should have checked that out before i sent them some poems. but, they did send back what i sent. so i have 5 poems to send somewhere else now. oh well, just another magazine i never got in.
the Yankees lost last night 6-1. i found it amusing that they FINALLY got tired of getting hit by pitches from Tampa pitchers. of course, this being the 2014 Yankees, they respond by almost hitting an opponent. this team has lacked a soul since 2001. when that group of guys moved on, they took all the fight this team had with them. i doubt any of this will carry over to the game tonight. of course, if the team i have loved for 32 years is still embarrassed by this season, it just might.
it was very nice to watch Frankie get evicted last night on Big Brother. hopefully that asshole won't win America's Favorite Player either. there's another eviction tonight. this game is basically Derrick's to win now.
i'm also looking forward to watching The Bridge tonight. it looks like another great episode.
watched a little Champions League today while doing my laundry. i got a good laugh at Bayern Munich beating Manchester City 1-0 at the death. that will bring me a smile for the rest of the evening.
one good thing about starting off horribly in fantasy football, you usually get first pick of the players you want to pick up off of the waiver wire. so, i have rebuilt both of my teams given all of my injuries for this week. hopefully the guys i picked work out for me. one thing i don't like about this Sunday, i'm going up against two great quarterbacks. that's usually a bad sign of things to come. plus, since i will be traveling to watch a hockey game in Columbus for the evening, i won't get to watch much of the games. hopefully i have nothing happen in the next few days and i can just set my roster and check back late Sunday night to see what happened. and quite frankly, i'm more worried about how the hell i'm going to watch all my Sunday night shows more than my fantasy football teams.
that's pretty much all for me today. thanks again 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...
