The Green Bile, Part 2

By Wyatt Earp | August 13, 2005

Today is another bad day . . .” – Fortune, Metal Gear Solid 2

Man, I could really use Fortune (pictured, left) now. Take that weapon and put me outta my misery! Let’s recap the day I’ve had so far:

First, I read that idiot savant (minus the “savant”) Will Bunch’s blog about Gennaro Pellegrini (see below post), and lose it! I’m cursing, yelling (the wife and kids are out for the day), and wondering what’s the point of protecting the people of a city that hates cops. Thankfully, Katey talked me down.

On top of that, I did not get promoted this week, as my lieutenant had predicted. I usually brush off promotion rumors, but since my lieutenant has family high in the chain of command, I (like Neo in The Matrix) started to believe. And, as usual for me, things didn’t turn out the way I would have liked. I’m disappointed, but not surprised. From now on, I will only post about my promotion a year after I get it!

Today is my first day off – hooray for weekends! – and I can’t do a damned thing. It’s currently 95 degrees in Philly, and the heat index is approaching 105! That might be a day in the park for Tyler D. and Dr. Phat Tony, but not for a fair-skinned Celtic/Slovak like myself. I can’t mow the lawn; I can’t ride my bike; I can’t do much, save for belting out posts like a Pez dispenser.

One thing I can do is watch NASCAR qualifying from the Watkins Glen road course. Lesson #1 – NASCAR road courses rule! Unfortunately, the pole position currently belongs to Tony Stewart. (Whom I will not bash for the sake of GunnNutt.) Jeff Gordon is currently third.

Well, I think I have punched myself out. Blogging is great therapy. Now, I can go play PS2.

    Play some game where you get to kill people. that’s always decent therapy for me.

    You read my mind, Doc. I am currently setting up Star Wars: Battlefront. Time to eliminate some rebel scum.

    Want any suggestions for good games involving killing people?

    I have Hitman 2 and Hitman: Contracts, most of the Medal of Honor games, Call of Duty, GTA: Vice City, the Metal Gear games, Kill Zone, and Kill Switch. I think I’m covered, but any other suggestions are appreciated!

    Maybe you should tell me who your favorite driver is so I don’t bash him. Just don’t say its “Boy Wonder” Gordon, please!

    GunnNutt – Um . . . Yeah, it’s Gordon. Sorry. I’m also a fan of Junior (and the late Senior), Jimmie Johnson, and Bobby Labonte.

    If you wanna rip someone with my permission, Rusty Wallace, Mark Martin, and Kevin Harvick are all acceptable.
