taking care of some loose ends...

the only reason i really write down what poems i send to where is to make sure i don't send the same rejected poems to the same place that rejected them. another thing it does is remind me of the places i don't hear back from. i usually will wait 3 to 6 months before the first query. but, when it gets to over a year, like a few places i've had to query here lately, it becomes this tedious fucking thing to do. i sent out about 6 queries today, some dating back to poetry submissions from 2015. i heard back from Oddball Magazine and Live Nude Poems who both passed on the poems i sent. Rusty Truck asked me to send the poems again, which i did. hopefully i will hear back from Scot this time, as i never heard back from him the first time i sent the poems in the summer of 2015. this is where i wish i had enough money to have someone to do this shit for me.

i went to the bank today. just my luck, they were training new employees. oh goody. i guess since i had a roll of quarters and 2 checks to deposit, the new guy was a bit flustered. what usually takes 2 minutes took about 10. thank god i had nowhere to be.

i got gas for 94 cents a gallon today. that'll work.

i was pretty much able to find everything i was looking for at Menards. i'm really hoping the frame i got works for the Ben Harper poster i have. plus, i got the shelving unit i wanted for the garage and a new household air station. the old one from the farm bit the dust. plus, i got all the cleaning shit mom wanted. all the rebates we had and the gift card my uncle gave me for Christmas knocked everything down to under $40. that was a good trip.

Smackdown was pretty good last night.

i really enjoyed the match between Neville and Cedric Alexander on 205 Live last night.

Taboo was super fucking dark again last night. the show is getting better with each episode.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight and Total Divas. i'll watch NXT sometime tonight on WWE Network.

i see the celebrity deaths are starting early again this year.

the New York Rangers play tonight against Philadelphia. i'd love to see them enter the All-Star break with a winning streak.

my sister is coming down here on Friday. i guess that's when all of us will be belatedly celebrating my birthday.

i'll be on here tomorrow probably after Manchester United plays.

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...
