Not to be political, but reminded of the stupidest thing that the late Robert Heinlein ever said, "An armed society is a polite society." Admiral Bob, fuck you in the heart sideways.

Amazing at it is, this isn't the low in journalism. The reason Lee Harvey Oswald was killed was because they kept escorting him out for press conferences., if you can imagine that. Still fuck those hacks with a razor dildo. . .

He was brought out for one press conference.

He was killed while being transported to jail, not a press conference. Media has nothing to do with it.

Oh, reading Manchester's book, death of a president(highly recommended, if extremely depressing) it made it sound like they hauled him out before the media multiple times. My bad. . . .

A shout out for Pogo Pete for posting about ten interesting/rousing/righteously aggrieved news stories a day on FB. My goal on social media is to keep my head down, but I feel like I can be vicariously pissed off about the state of the world through him.

I am a helper. A thinking thus ornery helper.

Brother, can you spare some cartilage? I ask, because according to the specialist I saw yesterday, I apparently have very little in my lefty knee and next to none in my right knee. (Though oddly enough, the pain is much worse on the left.) Anyway, this has been an on-going problem since my early forties and I'm sure that playing short in a modified league on shitty fields did little to help matters... I finally quit playing the summer of my 54th birthday as while I didn't mind spending the whole day playing, the three-four hours icing my legs after the game was getting to be less and less enjoyable.

 

So anyway, the damage has been done and it's at the point now where it isn't the least bit unusual for me to scream when standing up. So I finally got X-rays done last week and set up an appointment for yesterday afternoon. Didn't see the actual doc, but was greeted by his perky physician asst. I am naturally suspicious of people who are still acting perky at 3:00PM, I figure chances are that they're smoking meth.

 

Anyway, Ms. Perky announces that I can make arrangements for knee replacement surgery on both knees as soon as I would like to. My take is that I wouldn't like to at all, and certainly there must be other options to explore... The big question is that since I take enough oxy on a daily basis to put a rhino or Rhyno into a coma, why does that not help? Apparently, oxycodone is just fine for my back, but for this situation it's pretty much useless as what's needed is some sort of an anti-inflammatory medicine. I now have to be extra careful with the oxy, as it can set off swelling in my legs which kicks the pain up to a ridiculous level.

 

So I talked them into giving me a cortisone shot in both knees and now we wait three/four days to see if it worked. I explained that I've had four shots over the years in my throwing arm and that it worked splendidly for three to five years at a time. Ms. Perky responded with: "Oh, sure that's just tendinitis, you have severe damage from arthritis... Much, much worse..."

 

So this week is off to a wonderful start...

opened a fortune cookie

it was empty

nice knowing you guys

ancient chinese tradition of indicating you make your own luck?

Recent Japanese American tradition of indicating the Chinese tell you to make your own luck?

 

Remember, Confucius said: "This cookie tastes awful, why is this stupid piece of paper in it and where are my hookers?" At least in this screenplay I'm working on.

So I know for a fact that I would be infinitely happier if I never watched wrestling again.

 

I also know that I'm too stupid and mentally deranged to actually quit watching.

 

What the hell is the solution here?

There's wrestling that I like, but it's turning into more of a chore to watch than anything else.

 

I realize that the main solution to my life problems in general is to get so drugged up that emotions no longer register in my brain.  Trust me, I wish I could afford a drug/alcohol problem.

Look, no one passed a law that says you have to watch. That applies to stuff that you like as well. I'm usually counting the minutes until NXT, but sometimes I have other stuff going on and GOD FORBID I don't watch until Thursday or Friday. One week, I skipped it entirely and just doubled up the next week. Maybe it's my general outlook on life that as of going full-time free-lance seven years ago, I realize that I don't have to do fuck-all if I don't want to.

(The things I HAVE to do are 1. Be a good husband, and 2. Help take care of the cats. Everything else is an option.) Of course, it helps that the things I HAVE to do are things I enjoy immensely.

 

Anytime something crosses the line from something that you enjoy to something that (in your own words) is a chore; it's time to find something else that you enjoy. Let's see, it's 12:30, I've just had lunch and despite having an article to finish, I feel like taking a nap with the cats. The article will still be there to finish when I wake up and presumably I'll still have my command of the English language, so it will get finished in fine form and get sent off well before Monday's deadline. I might even watch me some Smokey Mountain Wrestling as I work...
