i actually got some sleep last night. and it wasn't from drinking myself to sleep. i do have a victory beer waiting for me. i decided not to drink it last night. i would like to actually enjoy it.
i was drained after the basketball game last night. it wasn't the game that did it to me, it was more the pain in my left arm. it's this persistent fucking annoying pain that won't go away. i can take pills, i can rub on ointments, and i can still feel the fucker. now, it gets to the tricky part of all this. with my birthday coming up, with the NHL All-Star game coming up, more basketball games, etc., i want to just ride this pain until next month and then maybe i'll give up and see a doctor. but, as i sit here and struggle to type this up, i do know this is going to test all the pain tolerance i have. good times.
as for the basketball game last night, Dayton struggled again in the first half, trailing at halftime by 2. whatever their coach said at halftime truly worked. they beat LaSalle at every aspect of the game, rebounding, defense, fast break points, etc. it was a pleasure to see. Dayton's point guard erupted in the second half and scored all 16 of his points in the final 20 minutes. i'm hoping the injury scare last night with Dayton's lone senior is nothing major. they can't stand to lose anymore players. Dayton won 61-50. they next play St. Louis at home on Saturday.
we made it back home in time to catch American Horror Story and Lucha Underground.
American Horror Story was excellent. the show had a few more deaths and a few more twists and turns as well. i really have enjoyed what Neil Patrick Harris has brought to the show. i can't wait for next week's episode.
Lucha Underground was excellent as well. i really enjoyed all the matches. i'm hoping this promotion really starts to catch on with other wrestling fans.
speaking of wrestling, i listened to the Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast with Jim Ross this morning. i highly recommend this episode. i also listened to the Nerdist podcast with Gillian Anderson. i enjoyed that as well, though i do regret never getting into the X-Files back in the day. i think my 38 year old self would enjoy it now. #XFiles2015
i believe mom wants to go to the store later today. i know she has some pills to pick up. i'm planning on tagging along as i need to do some people watching to get some words flowing in the head again. not sleeping in my bed has somewhat extinguished any poems here lately. now, a sane person would just bring their notebook down to the chair they are sleeping in. the writer would then protest about how he only writes the "good shit" up in his room. hence my dilemma.
the New York Rangers play up in Boston tonight. i'm hoping they can get back to their winning ways as i don't see want to see them start slumping going into the All-Star break.
other than that tonight, i might mix in some pro wrestling. i know i am planning on watching Dan Patrick on The Late Show with David Letterman.
i will probably be on here early tomorrow as we will be leaving in the afternoon to travel to Columbus to see the New York Rangers play the Columbus Blue Jackets Friday night. hopefully i'll finally get to see them win there in person. more on that tomorrow.
i need to get going and feed the cats. they are probably sleeping in the sun at the moment. i'm going to be the asshole to wake them up.
i hope everyone has a good day. 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...
