a holiday Monday

i always laugh at Martin Luther King day here in the USA as i can't help but think nearly half of the people in this country couldn't give a shit about the day at all. that's truly sad, but that's also what happens when a country refuses to have an adult conversation about race. oh well, i can always hope that ignorance will one day be defeated. of course, it's like the cockroach, it will never die.

yesterday was truly a crazy one. from all the sports to the television shows, how i stayed up the entire time is truly a fucking mystery.

the New York Rangers started their game yesterday fast and honestly, never looked back. i absolutely love the way they were the "tired" team but still whipped Pittsburgh yesterday, 5-2. they play again tomorrow night, their final game before the All-Star break. here are the highlights from yesterday:

the hockey game ended right as the Packers vs. Seahawks game was starting. that was one of the crazier playoff games i can remember. i can't believe that Green Bay blew that lead. but, hats off to Seattle for the win. also, for ending the game just in time for me to flip over to the other playoff game. that game between the Colts and Patriots went just about how i thought it would. when i flipped back later and saw the Patriots were up by 31, i knew i didn't need to turn back again. so, the Super Bowl will be between Seattle and New England. i have no clue who i'm going to pick to win it.

the Sunday nights shows were a little hit and miss for me. i liked Girls. i really liked Togetherness. i thought House of Lies was pretty good. Episodes was more miss than hit for me. Total Divas was ok. thankfully, Shameless was fucking excellent last night. i also watched a good portion of the UFC last night. i think i finally ran out of gas sometime around 2 in the morning. so, you can imagine my delight when i was up at 5:45 this morning to take a piss. at least i was able to fall back asleep for a little bit.

mom and i did take a few things over to the new house today. she's trying to decide on what colors she wants in what rooms. i told her not to bother with my room. i have so much shit that needs to be hung on the walls, painting them would be a complete waste of time and money. hopefully she can find some good painters, handymen, etc. she's been burned a few too many times, so she's a little gunshy hiring someone. i can't blame her.

hopefully the ground out here at the farm will dry out in the next few days. there is fucking mud everywhere.

i'm looking forward to my usual clusterfuck on television tonight. i believe there are some NBA games i'll probably flip between. i'm really looking forward to Gotham tonight. that is one of my favorite shows. during commercials i'll flip over to Monday Night Raw. that should be a nice dip in the waters of nostalgia with all the names coming back tonight. and then, i'll try to squeeze in the Men in Blazers sometime tonight. and at some point, i need to eat dinner and take a shower. plus, i'd love to get a few poems down and find a way to cut off my left arm and not feel any pain while doing it. ok, that last line was just to see if you're still reading.

the Dayton Flyers are ranked in the latest AP poll. i think they are at number 22. hopefully they can stay ranked for awhile. they have a really tough game tomorrow at Davidson.

i will most likely be back on here tomorrow afternoon. i hope everyone had a great weekend.

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...
