i got up and got ready to go get my blood work done. just my luck, i got an intern. she couldn't find a vein to save her life and then she couldn't keep my blood flowing into the vial that well either. i'm pretty damn sure i'll have a nice bruise from all of that. good times.
before i get to the rest of this crazy day, i should recap last night first.
Undateable was spectacular last night. i love when the show is 60 minutes long, mostly because the cast is full of assholes that try to get the other cast members to fuck up. i was laughing my ass off for most of the episode.
NJPW was excellent. Treehouse Masters was really good as well.
and yes, the chili made the night full of laughs and gas. and it lasted into today as well. good times.
the Dayton Flyers played like shit today, although you wouldn't know by looking at the final score. they beat LaSalle 59-44. they of course were losing at times in the first half and went long stretches without scoring. i'm sure people around the country loved watching that. eventually LaSalle ran out of gas and Dayton did just enough to win. hopefully they enjoy the week off before they play at George Mason.
after the game, we went out to eat. i was starving, mostly because i didn't eat a big breakfast after getting my blood work done. we went to Fricker's and it was crowded. we got there just in time as it got even more crowded by the time we were leaving.
after eating, we headed to Menards. mom had shit to return and god knows we had to take advantage of the 11% rebate on everything. i did find a few things i could use. i'm trying to reorganize all my books, especially all of the small press things i have from over the last 20 years or so. plus, i can't turn down 2 really good ink pens for just 99 cents. besides, i also had a coupon for some more bird seed.
it was interesting driving home in the dark. especially on the back roads. that's always fun; drunk drivers and wild animals... what could go wrong?
enjoy some music kids:
and now some of this and that:
on the DVR tonight will be Austin City Limits and ROH.
i am planning on going to the grocery store with mom tomorrow morning. after that, it will be writing and laundry. if i don't go to the store, everything will start a little sooner.
it was in the 50's today here. it felt really nice this evening. of course, it will probably snow in a few days. Ohio, if you don't like the weather, wait 15 minutes.
that's all for me kids. i'm off to go enjoy a couple victory drinks and settle in for the night.
i hope everyone had a great Saturday. and hopefully you won't be reading this until that great Saturday is over.
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...
