trying to survive a rainy day

i had a hard time falling asleep last night. it used to be that the sound of rain would put me to sleep. now, it's nothing but pain for me. so when i heard it raining at three in the morning, i knew i was going to be in for a long day. that's pretty much exactly what it has been.

i did make it to the bank to make a deposit. there wasn't much going on at the bank. i still go to the one in the town i grew up in. and honestly, that fucking town is more or less on its last legs. hopefully the last business out remembers to turn off the lights.

a big thank you to my buddy Sam Roberts for what he sent me today. i finally got the stickers i ordered back in May with a big surprise... an autographed Hulk Hogan picture. that's what i call a fucking cool early Christmas present.

i advanced to the finals in my fantasy football playoff game last night. i ended up winning by 10. of course, the winning points didn't come until the end of the game. needless to say, i was a bit pissy all night. but, the Saints did win the game (31-15) so that victory beer helped calm me down.

The Voice was really good last night. when i saw the original performance from Matt on team Adam, i knew after it was over that he was going to win it this year. the song and performance blew me away. if he doesn't win tonight, i will be totally fucking shocked.

Monday Night Raw was just as good as it was bad. i did like the ending though. Brock Lesnar beating the piss out of John Cena and then the handshake between Paul Heyman and Seth Rollins. hopefully that means some great things in the future. i heard the rumor that they are thinking about cutting the show back to 2 hours. that would be a very smart move as the writers obviously can't fill 3 hours at all.

i caught most of Men in Blazers. fucking hilarious as always. i did love their take on the Manchester United game.

tonight is yet another clusterfuck on television for me. Smackdown is live tonight, so i'll try to watch some of that. but, of course it will be on at the same time as The Voice finale and the New York Rangers game in Calgary. i tell ya, i'm going to get that damn Elvis wall of televisions sometime before i fucking die.

since mom wanted a few of the songs from The Voice last night, i had a little fun on iTunes today. i figure i hadn't bought anything from there for a few months, so it was ok. all the songs you'll see below came from there.

i think i'm going to start wrapping gifts tomorrow. i just use newspaper to do it. i try to avoid the obituaries... try.

if all that goes well for me, i may try to do a little writing and maybe get one last submission out there before the end of the year. i've got a few poems swimming in my head. at least the words are up there. i guess i need to turn them into something.

that's all for me today. it's supposed to start getting colder here again. almost like mother nature remembers it's supposed to be winter or something here. hopefully the heat in the great room keeps on working.

thanks again to all three of you 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...
