One of those days

Today is going to be work day.  I have to get out there and mow the lawn and then off to Midlothian to put out some flyers.  I bought random things for the shows this weekend yesterday while I was out with Chris.  I got some duct tape, some chairs for the TLC matches, some pins and screws for the ring, clothesline to tie the canvas down better and got some prices on other things needed but too big for my car to haul.  Today will be flyering the neighborhood.  Since Sox is broke, he is unable to help so I will get as much done as I can by myself.

I bought several John Wayne movies yesterday at Sam’s Club.  He was my dad’s favorite actor and he had like over 100 John Wayne movies on VHS.  They are still around here in the house but I’m going to start getting them on DVD.  I bought 26 yesterday to go with the 4 I already head.  I love box sets where you get 23 movies for $20.  That is a great deal in my book.  I also got a 6 pack of old gangster movies involving James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart and Edward G. Robinson.  Once I get done with Quantum Leap season 2 (I have like 3 episodes left), I might watch some of the gangster movies and some of the John Wayne before moving to Season 3.

Grandma and Aunt Faye left for the cabin on Saturday and will be returning on Thursday.  I have the house to myself and that means plenty of boredom time on the computer and staying up late.  If you see me online, feel free to im me and give me something to do.  I have fixed up my myspace page to get ready for the Morris Redskin’s upcoming season.  Lots of interesting games on the schedule this year.  It will be the first ever regular season meeting between Joliet Catholic and Morris on September 1st.  The Oswego game is the next week but that is the weekend of the Mayor’s wedding so I’ll just have to read about it.  They were our big rivals back when I was in school because the JCA rivalry hadn’t started yet.   Then October, Friday the 13th, is the big emotional game.  Morris vs. Plainfield North.  Coach Dan Darlington vs. Morris after he gave 30 years to the team and lead them to 2 state championships and 5 runner ups.  That game will tug at the heart strings and be difficult to watch.  Hopefully my calendar stays clear for that Friday though cause I will want to be there for that.

Anyway, I will leave you guys with this if you choose to read it.  It is a survey that Ray took over on myspace.  I laughed hysterically while reading it and decided that more people need to be able to see this so I am putting it on here.  His wife’s maiden name is LOVE so all questions involving being in love are answered with that in mind.  You will love the sarcasm and the humor.  Read it…it is worth it.
