The weekend

Today I work from 3:30 - 10:30. It will be the final day of a seven day stretch that included yesterday's 7am to 4:45ish shift.

After work yesterday I came home to try to unwind before heading out to watch the UCF/USF football game with the UCF Alumni here in Atlanta.

The exhaustion kicked in, and I left at halftime, knowing the game was on ESPN2 and I could watch it at home. The score at the time was 10-10.

The game went into overtime after UCF scored twice in 2 minutes to tie the game at 24-24 with a minute left to play. USF missed a field goal to force overtime and we lost it then.

I feel better losing 31-24 than last year when USF beat us 64-12. This is the last game we will play against the school 70 miles down I-4 from us as they have determined we are not worthy of being on their schedule. To them I say, kiss my ass. UF tried to do the same thing to FSU back in the day and the FL Legislature had to intervene to maintain the games.

I think I might have a kidney stone. I have heard of them and known people who have dealt with them and I am not looking forward to the process.

I have the next two days off. I have a doctor's appointment in the morning and plan to spend the rest of the two days off working on the garage, 3 of the rooms upstairs and hopefully, finally finishing the painting of the shutters. I might work in some yard clean-up too.

I have no real interest in football season thi syear for the NFL as Duante Culpepper is not playing. In fact, he retired from the NFL this week. He was a great QB, but a knee injury really derailed his career at its peak, and his practice of serving as his own agent hurt it even more.

I am still watching VH-1 Classic's 80 Hours of the 80's from last weekend. They are in the D's right now, with Dokken's "Dream Warriors" from one of the Freddy Kreuger movies playing right now. It's an alphabetical list by artist name, so I have a long, enjoyable way to go.

I have another blog dedicated to music from the 1980's at

Kidney stone? ouch! So your only interest in the NFL in previous seasons was for the one player? Hmmm... interesting...

Happy Monday!! :0

If you have a kidney stone, you'll know it. It hurts like hell. Like, immobilizing pain. Hope that's not what you have!
