it actually turned out to be pretty warm today. of course, if the weather reports are true (laugh now), today will be the last nice day for the foreseeable future. we are supposed to get some nasty storms come through tonight and tomorrow morning. farmers are scrambling like crazy around this area today trying to get the crops off. the guy who farms out here always plays it cool. i think our crops will be on for the next couple of weeks or so.
i sent out 13 poems today, 3 to Raw Dog Press and 10 to Midnight Lane Boutique. all 13 of these poems were 8 lines or less. that was a bit of a challenge. i feel pretty good about some of the poems. some are ones that have been sitting around for awhile and i figured fuck it, why not. when i hear back from these places, i'll pass along the verdicts.
mom and i went to Perkins for dinner last night. the same Perkins i went to all the time as a teenager. the same Perkins i fingered a former love of my life in the parking lot. the same Perkins where the girl i lost my virginity to used to work at. to say i get a flood of memories when i walk in the place would be an understatement. one thing that has changed was the fucking prices. holy shit, my youth truly is gone. shit i used to get for under $4 is now around $9. damn. after dinner we went to the grocery store. definitely not nearly as crowded as when we go in the daytime. and since it was less crowded, guess who got to bag the groceries. i was impressed that i did it as quickly as i did.
we got back home in time for The Bridge season finale. it went a little different than i was expecting. certainly not as violent as i thought it would be. the only one that died was a guy i didn't think was going to die. not saying it was bad, just different. it did plant a few seeds for season 3, which will hopefully be coming soon.
i might watch some of the NFL game tonight as i have the kicker for the Vikings. of course, one of my fantasy opponents has Green Bay's QB and #2 WR. needless to say, i will be trailing in the game going into Sunday.
other than that, i will probably be watching some college football and who knows what else.
my mom got her new hearing aid today. i'll be interested to see how that works out for her. her last one lasted 2 days before she couldn't stand it anymore.
if you get a chance to download the new mixtape from Childish Gambino, do it. it's damn good.
i was a little shocked when i saw the news this morning that Evel Dick of Big Brother fame has HIV. i truly understand why he left the show the last time he was on it now. hopefully him coming forward will help wake people up once again that HIV is still out there.
well, that's all for me today. i've got toilets to clean and dishes to do. and then, maybe my lazy ass will get outside and take some photos. if that happens, they'll be posted for the blog tomorrow.
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...
