so this is what i've been missing all these years?

so my sister came down this morning and the plan was that her and mom were going to go out and them come and get me to go out to lunch. well, plans change. my sister's friend she was coming down to see was on the other end of the county and since they weren't going to drive all the way back to get me for lunch, i might as well come along. and since i'm trying to make an effort, i of course agreed. little did i know that we were going to do some shopping after the visit with my sister's friend. and then after lunch as well. my mom joked with me and said see what you've been missing all these years. i laughed and in the most sarcastic voice i can muster at the age of 39, said if i had to describe to a blind man what bliss is, today's the day. thank god lunch was great. Logan's Roadhouse. if it was only closer to where we live. the food was excellent. the alcohol was good. and it wasn't too expensive. and out of the shopping i got some shorts and one of those tall plastic coke bottles for coins. that will work better than the flower dish i was using.

now, time for a music break before i get to yesterday's events...

the New York Yankees won last night in Houston 3-2. they are playing right now and have just blown a 6 run lead. let's just say i'm not pleased.

team USA beat China 1-0 yesterday in the Women's World Cup. they played much better than the score shows. it was probably the best they had played in this tournament. they advance to play Germany on Tuesday in the semifinals.

the NHL Draft last night went how i thought it would until the New York Rangers never made the move into the first round. once that happened, i truly felt like i wasted 3 hours of my life. now today, i didn't get to watch any of the draft. i did see that the Rangers traded Cam Talbot (as i expected) and also traded Carl Hagelin (didn't expect that). the player they got for Hags will work as long as the fans don't expect the same numbers from him as Hags gave them. Emerson Etem will give a more physical presence though. plus, he'll make 1/3rd of what Hagelin was going to make. the backup goalie the Rangers got today from Chicago i love. Antti Raanta played great for my fantasy team this year and is the perfect fit for a backup. he will make 1/2 of what Talbot was going to make this season. that frees up some money for the restricted free agents the Rangers have. hopefully they can fit all the pieces together and make another run at the Stanley Cup. i liked the picks the Rangers got today. i think a few of the players may actually make it to the NHL in a few years. i'll just be happy when the team has a first round pick again.

NJPW was excellent last night. you can never go wrong with a show that has Okada, Nakamura, Tanahashi and AJ Styles on it.

the season finale of VICE last night was awesome. it truly is a show that EVERYONE should watch:

i guess for the rest of today i'll watch the rest of the baseball game, maybe some Copa America as well, and then god knows what tonight. i feel a nap or a huge shit coming on. i know i will have ROH on the DVR.

the weather today has been completely fucking dreary. just clouds and rain all the fucking time.

i guess i can now go read today's paper and my mail. my day always get out of whack when i have no afternoon nap.

hope everyone is having a great weekend. hopefully the sun actually exists where you are.

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...
