days when the 8 year old me was truly a soothsayer...

when Chelsea scored just 30 seconds into the game against Manchester United yesterday, i knew i was in for a Sunday i didn't want to see. by the time they scored the second goal, i was already flipping through the channels to see what else was on, other than NFL pregame shows. i didn't bother to watch the third and fourth goals Chelsea scored as i was basically going over my fantasy football teams again and seriously wondering if i should just become a Real Madrid fan. add on top to the humiliating loss an injury to their best center back and it really feels like this is going to be one of those losses that the club will feel for weeks. not good.

next up was the New Orleans Saints. they started off strong but penalties were holding them back. and as usual, the penalties would happen at the wrong damn time and soon enough, the Saints were down 21-7. they made a furious comeback, but ultimately lost 27-21. this was one of those games that i'll shake my head at at the end of the season and think what could have been.

by this time i was numb and ready to take a nap. just as i was falling asleep watching the outdoor hockey game in Winnipeg, i could hear mom calling my name from the bathroom. for a second i thought i was dreaming it. i got out of my chair and went to the bathroom and opened the door. she had fallen in the shower. she said she didn't hit her head but i could tell this wasn't exactly good for her back. the stubborn old bitch wouldn't allow me to help her other than get her some towels to dry off and her walker so she could get herself back up. about 10 minutes later, she made it back up and was back into the bed.

a little side note here... i woke up this morning and my door was open. i was 99.9% sure it was closed when i went to sleep. i asked mom about it this morning and she said she opened it at 5 in the morning when she thought i had said something to her. she said she was more or less sleepwalking. so, it looks like i'll be getting even less sleep than i normally do now. good times.

the New York Rangers won last night 3-2 over Arizona. Dan Girardi scored the winning goal in the 3rd. that's the human equivalent to a blind squirrel finding a nut. but, i enjoyed the victory beer just the same. god knows, i needed it.

Westworld was excellent last night. the ending was spectacular. Divorce was pretty funny last night. Insecure was hilarious. The Strain was fucking awesome last night. i can't wait for the season finale next week. Shameless was great as usual. Masters of Sex was pretty good last night. and finally, Last Week Tonight was brilliant as usual.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, The Voice and Gotham. i'll be watching Monday Night Raw for most of the evening.

i probably should watch some of the Monday Night Football game, for fantasy football purposes, but i probably won't.

so i went out to Meijer today to find some things to make the shower more safe for mom. plus, i had a $5 off coupon that expired today. i found a few things that will hopefully work. i also bought myself some creepy Halloween shit and some baseball cards. plus, i got a Star Wars pillow that's comfortable as hell. i figure, i might as well embrace my inner geek now, who the fuck do i need to impress really? i'm 40 and single with no hope of that ending anytime soon, good or bad. so, fuck it.

i truly hope all of you had a better Sunday than i did. if you didn't, i would suggest drinking more and playing with weapons. you might die or you might become famous. that's one hell of a coin flip.

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...
