The Smackdown Short Form, 12.16.04

Oh, Jesus H. Fucking Christ…here’s the deal: the battery for the Damn Vaninator is being recharged as I’m typing this (I have GOT to get that damn thing fixed so that the battery doesn’t run down). So, since I want it to get charged up, the Damn Vaninator’s down, and there’s jack shit within walking distance of this place food-wise. So I do what anyone else in this position would do: call Domino’s for a delivery order. I finally get them on the phone, and the f*cker answering it has the thickest goddamn Hindi accent I’ve ever heard, and that’s really saying something considering that I lived near a Hindu neighborhood in Chicago for five years. It took me five f*cking minutes to relay my order, and that was complicated by the fact that my phone number was in their goddamn computerized directory, but it was the previous holder of that number, who lives across town from me. I had to tell him my address three goddamn times before he was convinced that I was living in the apartment I’m in now. And I still fear that my pizza will never get here. So I’m hungry, I have a massive headache from this shit, and I’m still wondering why Domino’s is listed in one phone directory and not the other local one. On top of that, I have to do Smackdown, which gives me enough symptoms as it is. Well, let me just struggle through this…

…but not before this news item. From CNN:

The Bush administration formally canceled Iraq’s $4.1 billion debt to the United States on Friday and urged others to do the same to help the country rebuild.

Well, how f*cking sweet. Just add that on to the hundreds of billions we’ve already spent on this complete waste of money and lives. Fuck the Junta.

And in case you’re wondering, the pizza got here just as Smackdown was ending, but they burnt the crust a little. Fucking Domino’s.

Grutman and Friends Talk Wrestling

Live journal of Hardygrrl Live journal of Joshua Grutman.

GRUTMAN: First Blade, then Gloomchen, and now Joshua Grutman is proud to bring to you another girl who mentioned his name and writes well, the winner of the Inside Pulse Forum’s poetry contest, Hardygrrl!

HARDYGRRL: Thank you Grut.

GRUTMAN: My pleasure. I’ve always wondered, how does a girl who doesn’t want to become a wrestler become interested in professional wrestling?

HARDYGRRL: Honestly, at first it was the cartoonish nature of it and a few of the men. Then I got hooked into the storylines. I’ve watched wrestling back when Hogan *shudder* first broke out. I took a few years off because it got too silly and then got back into it again just as Austin was breaking out.
