she decided to just use the cane today. i was very interested to see how she would do. of course, her cataracts were fucking with her today...
lunch was good, mom was being very careful while using the cane. i could tell she has become somewhat dependent on the walker. we went to the place we usually go to get our haircuts. this was the first time i had my hair cut by a black woman in god knows how long. she was a smoker as well. i could smell Newport all over her. i used to smoke them sometimes in my past. ah, the memories. the haircut went well, so i gave her a nice tip (40%). mom looked much better as well once she was done.
i know mom really needed this as she was feeling like a shut in. hopefully this lifts her spirits a bit.
the trash is already picked up, so let's get going on the blog...
Gotham was really fucking good last night. the winter finale should be amazing next week.
Hate Thy Neighbor was very interesting last night. i made my mother watch it as well. i'm always amazed at how ignorant racist people really are. this should be a show that everyone should watch. it's on Viceland.
The Young Pope was very good last night.
Beware the Slenderman was fascinating to watch. i'm so fucking happy i have never brought any children into this world. when the one mother said last night that they always knew there was a possibility that the father's schizophrenia could be passed on, i wanted to throw my remote through the television. it was not an easy documentary to watch. of course, i'm quick to blame the parents. i'm also happy that i had discovered drugs way before the internet came around so i wouldn't turn into one of these zombies believing crazy shit on the net. i highly recommend this one, but be warned, there are no easy answers on this one.
Monday Night Raw was pretty good last night. i did mark out a bit at the end when Goldberg and Brock Lesnar were in the ring and The Undertaker's music hit. it's not really good for business when the show ends with 3 part timers, but the child in me loved it. Royal Rumble this Sunday should be amazing.
enjoy some music:
and now some of this and that:
on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Smackdown and Taboo. i'll watch 205 Live sometime tonight on WWE Network.
i did listen to the latest Jim Norton & Sam Roberts Podcast today. it was fucking hilarious. you can find it by going here: https://soundcloud.com/jimandsamshow/ep-010-nick-dipaolo-dj-whookid
the New York Rangers were badly outshot last night 38-17 but thanks to The King, the Rangers defeated the Los Angeles Kings 3-2. 3 wins in a row now. hopefully they have righted the ship.
my blood sugar was pretty good this morning. i'm trying to limit myself to just one alcoholic beverage per evening. so far, that has gone well. plus, the numbers seem to be better when i have a big lunch and not much for dinner.
tomorrow i know i need to go to the bank and i have to get gas as well. i might make a trip to Menards as well. that kind of depends on how the weather is tomorrow. i'll do the blog after all that.
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...
