i spent nearly $300 in the grocery store today. most of it was the pills and all the stuff my mother wanted me to buy for my sister's upcoming birthday (gift cards, alcohol, etc.). it's been threatening to rain nearly all day. thankfully, i got the grocery shopping done and the mail was here before any of it really started.
just as i feared, the New York Yankees left a small village on base last night and lost to Toronto 4-0. yet another losing road trip. they are back home tonight to start a series against Boston. they are 4 1/2 games behind them in the division. god willing, they won't be 7 1/2 by Monday.
Vice News Tonight had another great week of shows.
Big Brother went as i expected last night. Jessica was evicted and Alex is the new HOH, or how most people online are putting it, Paul is the HOH for the third week in a row. i did love how devastated Cody looked last night when he lost in the HOH competition. i'm rooting for whoever has the balls to actually get rid of Paul this season. if they wait any longer, he will win the show.
The Chris Gethard Show was beautifully absurd once again last night.
the New Orleans Saints did what they do best last night, lose a fucking preseason game. that's 10 in a row they have lost. thank god i didn't go to the game, which was in Cleveland.
Weekend Update last night was fucking hilarious.
enjoy some music:
and now some of this and that:
on the DVR tonight will be VICE, Treehouse Masters, Real Time with Bill Maher and Room 104.
the Premier League started back up today. Manchester United starts on Sunday against West Ham.
i believe my sister is coming down this weekend. of course, i have no clue when. since i don't have a cell phone, i'm not privy to those text messages between my sister and mother unless my mother remembers to tell me.
mom's physical therapy went well yesterday. of course, she doesn't believe she's done as good as she has, so they have her on a 3 week hold. my hope is once she gets her cataracts taken care of and can actually fucking see again, she'll actually start to realize the gains she has made in her therapy. i'm not holding my breath though.
i did write 5 more poems today. when you wake up and see that the asshole parading as President of this country is trying to out crazy another crazy fucker, i have a tendency to reach for pen and paper. i typed up the 5 poems this morning, most of which were not political in nature by the way. i did like a few of them. that puts me at 15 poems in 11 days for the month. i guess cutting out fantasy sports has allowed me to be more productive. i'm still making the same amount of money sadly, doing either.
that's all for me today kids. i hope everyone has an amazing weekend. take it easy and then take it again.
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...
