the torture of arthritis

before i get to the good shit of yesterday, let me tell the tale of what it is like to put together a bookcase with no power tools when you have arthritis. about 20 minutes into hand screwing pieces together, i looked at my mom and just said "power tools". seriously, there's no fucking way i'm doing that again without power tools. my hands are still hurting from it. and then trying to hammer nails in with my fat fingers... if i would have been hammering out of frustration, my left thumb would be broken into a thousand pieces. so, if any kind soul wants to get me a gift, you know what to get.

the good news from yesterday was the amazing job team USA did in the Women's World Cup. the way that game started out, it was basically over in 15 minutes. just a fantastic job by everyone. Carli Lloyd's goal from 54 yards out might be the best goal i have ever seen in a women's game. congrats to the ladies for absolutely destroying their demons and winning the first World Cup for the USA since 1999. a 5-2 win over Japan that no one will forget anytime soon.

the bad from yesterday was the shitty job the Yankees did trying to get the sweep over Tampa. 3 fucking errors and only one run, not exactly the recipe for something good. i more or less stopped watching when it got to 4-0. i believe the final score was 8-1. they are off tonight and start a series with Oakland tomorrow.

enjoy a quick music break before i get to last night:

Big Brother went how i thought it would last night. more creative editing by the producers (this has been common for as long as i have watched the show) and more drama made by Audrey. i can't believe these idiots are going to keep her in the house another week.

Penny Dreadful was spectacular last night. the intensity of the first 20 minutes of the show was breathtaking. i was very curious where it would go from there. the next few twists certainly showed where the show will be going for season 3. 2016 can't get here fast enough.

True Detective continued the slow burn it has been on so far. i'm doing my best to not compare it to last season. the excellent job that Rachel McAdams is doing is helping me. plus the music each episode has been damn near perfect.

Ballers was pretty funny last night. the ending was great. The Brink was good, although a little more nudity goes a long way.

after all that was over, i was amazed to see the NASCAR race was still going on. it must have been raining in Florida yesterday. so i watched that to the finish. and oh what a fucking finish it was:
how the fuck is he still alive?

i did write 2 more poems yesterday, so i typed up all 3 after the race was over. i really like these 3 poems. two of them are kind of short, so i may play with them to fit the guidelines of a certain place i know that likes short poems.

say hello to another music break:

the only thing i'm planning on watching tonight is Monday Night Raw. and since they are in Chicago tonight, i really expect one hell of a show.

tomorrow will be a clusterfuck for sure as the Gold Cup will be starting for the USA men's team. given the dumpster fire that Mexico is right now, this is a tournament the USA is expected to win. but, when it comes to soccer, i take NOTHING for granted. more on that tomorrow.

i hope everyone had a great weekend. hopefully you avoided jail and/or pregnancy. welcome to a new work week in July, where everyone is just one day of the air conditioning going out away from killing everyone. good times.

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...
