when i got back home last night, the trash cans were in the same spot where i left them on the way to Columbus, the cats weren't dead, but the internet was out and the power went out at some point while we were gone. plus, 3 inches of fresh snow and plenty of aching bones. good times.
the NHL All-Star game was fun. i did enjoy it. i didn't take it seriously, as none of the players did either. i was really happy to see Rick Nash score 2 goals. plus, i can at least say for a year, i was at the highest scoring All-Star game in NHL history. here are a few of the 85 pics i took from the game:
it was snowing pretty good after the game. my sister and i went to get a little food and take it back to her condo. i hadn't eaten since the morning, so i was hungry. but, i decided not to eat too much, as the last thing i wanted to do was destroy my sister's bathroom. amazingly, i was able to get a little sleep that night on her couch.
turns out my sister does have HBO (she also has Showtime, but she didn't realize it until i told her the next day) so i was able to watch Girls and Togetherness on Sunday night. i also watched Total Divas, which my sister was amazed that she actually watched the whole hour of it.
the snow finally ended on Monday morning. most of the schools were closed. my sister had to get a mirror she purchased and she said the roads were shit. we were going to go out and do some shopping, but mother nature had other plans. in the afternoon, we picked up mom at her hotel. i met one of her bosses, who was a little surprised to find out that i'm a published poet. she then mentioned Charles Bukowski and i thought holy shit, i have to get this woman to like my work and become my Linda King.
we went to dinner Monday night at the house of one of my sister's friends from college. her and her husband are really fucking cool, so it was a pretty fun dinner. both are really into music, so that's always a fun conversation. i would have been drinking with them if i didn't have to drive back to the farm right after leaving their house. but, one day i can see us getting drunk and debating old records from the 70's and having a blast.
the drive back was an easy one. the roads were pretty damn clear. we got home in time for me to catch the last hour of Monday Night Raw and the shows on Showtime i missed; Shameless (another awesome episode), House of Lies (great ending) and Episodes (better than the last one).
i think i fell asleep to the blizzard coverage on the weather channel.
i watched the episode of Gotham i missed on Monday night this afternoon. it was yet another amazing episode. such a great show.
i guess the New York Rangers are playing tonight at the fucking Islanders. i guess the storm missed that dump out on Long Island. hopefully the Rangers can get a much needed win against those fuckers tonight.
other than that, i have some papers to read and mail to catch up on.
i got a call from the muse today. that was a pleasant surprise. of course, she called while i was out getting the paper and mail. hopefully we'll get to chat with each other soon.
that's pretty much all for me today. i think tomorrow may end up being a laundry day for me. so i'll try to get on here sometime between loads. i'm sure someone with a dirty mind just smiled.
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...
