Today’s music video is Paralyzed by Rock Kills Kid.
I’ve now resorted to praying. Praying for either time to go faster, or for hockey to start. Sure there’s other things that I probably should be asking the good lord for, like the stock market settling down (don’t panic, think of it as a sale), Sean Avery actually becoming model citizen, or Dan Carcillo keeping his mouth shut. However, as I try to watch baseball, a game that has become glaringly slow, the summer gets longer and longer. And longer. I’m sick of watching Big Brother, Hell’s Kitchen is boring, and I can’t remember the last time I watched Sportscenter and paid attention it. Maybe a long nap till October will do the trick?
