After wrestling was over, I hung out on here for a while. And at 1:00 I roll down to my church. We have a perpetual adoration chapel for everyone in the area. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year, someone is always in there. Probably seems weird if you don't have one in your area, but it's really peaceful and you can go in and pray and just relax. People from all over come to it, so that makes things pretty neat. I was there for about an hour last night, getting my daily Bible reading in. You know how it goes. Hey Aly, your comment in your post yesterday had me cracking up good, so it's worth a post in my Blog as well: "ED AND I ARE THE PIMPEST CATHOLICS EVER!" After that, I come home to be online till around 5:00. By the way, 2 more PB&J sandwiches last night.
Today (Tuesday) is highlighted by a haircut. Most of you who have known me for a while know about my barber. We pay for the experience by my barber. He's not good at cutting hair, but that doesn't seem to bother many people. To set the scene, he's an Italian dude around 60 who throws f-bombs around like it's his job. The phone was ringing like crazy today and that made it great. The first call and he has to stop cutting my hair and says, "What the fuck?". Then he gets to chop chop chopping away again, and the phone rings again. "What the fuck is going on here?!" At this point he starts to get fired up that he has to take time out of his day to answer phones to get him more appointments. Go figure. And a third call is this guy who wanted a haircut right now for him and his son. Well, you don't make demands with my barber. He couldn't fit him in today, so he told the dude to come tomorrow. He hangs the phone up and spits out this one to me, "That guy thinks this is Wal-Mart! Go to Wal-Mart for a haircut if you want it RIGHT NOW! Fuck that! It doesn't work like that down here now does it?" Of course I just sit there and take it in, agreeing with him and letting him go off on the next topic. The old legends come in just to hang and get my barber all fired up about something. Another haircut trip well spent.
After my haircut, I do battle in ping pong with my Dad. We played whoever won 5 games first was the champ for the day. We battled right down to the wire, as I won 5-4. I was up 3 games to 1 and almost blew it. The last game's score was 21-19, so it was hardcore. I was ringing wet after that, but it's the best I've played in a while. I was hitting my power shots as good as ever and my backhand is getting respectable. A new shot I've developed is a forehand spike to the backhand side of who I'm playing against. It looks like it's going in the other direction, but it has some good hooking action with some crazy power to give it a nice effect. That leaves the guy I'm playing wide open a lot, which is what I'm after. Just crank on it on by with power. Spin and slow down play is not my game, so I'm going down fighting. And while I'm done playing, it's time to sand down my wooden paddle to be smooth like a baby. No rubber at all on this beast.
Tonight it's Real World time. With only 3 weeks to go, that puts a tear in my eye. What will I do on Tuesday nights now? Who knows. But tonight will be the first real episode that the new dude (Charlie) will be part of the cast, as Frankie is at home making a crackhead out of herself. And tomorrow night is another season of The Newlyweds. Yeah, I must be weird, but I watch this stupid show every week it's on. The reason is to see how stupid Simpson will be each time I tune in, plus it can't hurt to look at her either. Her sister's show is on after that. How's she worthy of a show? I'll probably end up watching that stupid thing too.
So I'll leave you all until next time. Tomorrow (if I don't update late tonight) should be a Real World review, talk about tonight's Lakers game (a Pistons win will clinch the title, but I don't see it happening), and whatever goes down in The Madhouse Of Bird33.
"The real tragedy is that there are some ignorant brothers out here. That's why I'm not on this all white or all black shit. I'm on all real or all fake shit with people, whatever color you are. The same niggaz that did Malcolm X, the same niggaz that did Jesus Christ, every brother ain't a brother. They will do you. So just because it's black, don't mean it's cool. And just because it's white, don't mean it's evil."- 2Pac
