it seems i havent updated in a good two weeks. thats not usually like me. instead of a big block of text, im gonna just write quick blurbs about certain things. i hope this works out in here as well as it has in my head.
tomorrow is the 8 month milestone which means only 4 more to go. thats 2/3 of the way done kids. i also have about 60 hours of community service completed. thats 40 percent of that as well. at my current rate, i should lose the jewelry, regain my drivers license, and go at or around 10 hours of CS left, if any at all, at about the same time. thats good news.
in fantasy baseball i have spent a few days alone in first place and ive fallen back to as low as 4th. i blame this on my rotation issues. 4/6 of my starters have been pitching on the same day. thats no good. im confident i have figured this thing out though.
in real baseball, my braves have been on a tear and just acquired bob wickman to be the closer. while im not sold on wickmans ability (he is 1-4 with an ERA over 4.00 with only 15 saves), he is also 37 years old, a free agent at the end of the year, and has repeatedly talked about retirement. regardless, i hope the georgia peach (thats a joke about his weight, i know, im a funny guy) can stabalize an otherwise shaky bullpen.
danica patrick.....god you are hot.
ive been watching a lot of movies lately, thanks to my friend netflix. however, the life aquatic with steve zissou....was a rather horrible movie. i doubt i would ever consider watching it again. i cant even tell you what its about. i was very disappointed. rounders should arrive at my house tomorrow, or else i will be mad, and i will finally see the movie that helped spawn the poker surge. for how big on poker i am, its amazing i havent yet seen this.
speaking of poker, id love to get a cash game going sometime soon if anyone is interested.
i am expecting some visitors tonight. morgan, chase and ashlee should be here in roughly two hours. has the making of a fun night.
i just finished book 1 in the first book of the lord of the rings trilogy. reading these is going to take a lot longer than i initially anticipated.
since my mind is jumping all over the place, we go back to sports because eagles training camp is upon us. thats right kids. football is just aronnd the corner. dont look now but july is practically over and then its august and BAM september means football. sweet jeebus.
also in the sports world steve nash cut his hair. he now offically looks like an alien. if you dont like the extra terrestial reference, you certainly wont like that he could also pass as someone who has a terminal illness. i feel a little remorseful even saying that.
speaking of things you shouldnt say, lance armstrong apparently got off some good one liners while hosting the espys. most notably the comment to jake gyllanhall (spelling) about his role in brokeback mountain. he asked why jake was sitting in the front because he was under the impression jake liked it in the rear. i laughed.
also on the topic of lance, how about the tour de france is going on. does anyone even know let alone care? since lance isnt involved i would think more people would be interested because its up in the air. someone other than mr. armstrong is going to win this race. perhaps floyd landis. other than him i cant really name anyone. mikhael rasmussen...im not sure where he stands, and where is ivan basso? was he suspended or is he not participating? i dont know.
i think once my contract expires on my cell phone, which is i think 2 or 3 months, i am going to do away with nextel. im tired of paying an arm and a leg for their service. and i dont like the text messaging or lack thereof. it just irritates me.
well, i have kind of hit a roadblock in my mind now about what else to say. so i guess it is time to end this. now to kill time until my visitors arrive.
