Bad Day

5 years ago today, my mother died.
30 years ago today, my fiancee died.
This morning, my garage was broken into.

I have a message that my lab. test results are in. Would you blame me if I hold off a day before I check the results?

Update: Results were "inconclusive." And I pulled a muscle during my run... stupid August 8th.

Check on them FIRST THING tomorrow morning. August 9th is a great and lucky day, when nothing ever goes awry. It kicks August 8ths ass. Stupid, stupid, stupid August 8th.

It's the 9th already. I hope that it is an infinitely better day for you!

Screw you, August 8th. Worthless.
Hope today was better!

Turns out August 9 was a much better day because Criff Ree pitched 8 scoreless innings AND hit his 2nd HR, which turned out to be the winning run in the Phillies game last night. Of course, I didn't watch it (DVR'd) until I got up at like 4 this morning because it was in LA and didn't even START till 10:10 p.m. I'm gonna stay up till 1:00 a.m. to watch a game on a work night? Who am I? A coke-fueled Charlies Sheen? (#winning!)

The only thing that could make this 2-1 victory sweeter would be for Keef to come by and irrelevantly proclaim his inexplicable "Soliloquy of the Spanish Cloister"-like hatred of the Phillies.

Must be a Kanadian thing, which is ironic, because technically? Kanadians don't have "things" and they reproduce asexually, and even that not very well because there are only like 17 of them.

@GQH: when it comes to diatribes, I say go Biblical. Deut. 28:16-68. Paraphrasing:
"You shall be cursed in the streets and the fields, in the cities and the towns...cursed when you awake and when you lie down...your children will be monsters and will seek to destroy you... and you'll vote republican and cheer for the Yankees."
