What the hell, brochitches?

Dudes, my boy Roast Beef has got to get action-style on a wedding plan, 'cause he stone cold blew this year's weddin' season. I know it takes time to plan and all, but if that cat had lucubrated (yeah, I'm still subscribin' to Martin Song's Word-a-la-Daaay site) a little more they could of at LEAST done some quick thing out on the beach. Waves and sand ain't so dear as pews and a band, my old man once said.

What else is new...I'm hella rockin' some tennis elbow lately. I been workin' on it with Przepošc down at the club. He thinks I been servin' way too hard, and variatin' between too many serve techniques. He's sayin' all this stuff about how my serve was never properly molded in its early stages, and he may be right. I been servin' hard and loose since the first few years of my game—I'm talkin' kid ages—when I had my own ideas about how to wallop a mofo. Toss, wait, hop, twist, and SLAM. Or...toss, slam, wait, and jump. Sometimes: SLAM, wait, think, and pivot. Ray Smuckles could bring the heat, three times out of ten. And that's just enough to keep you alive...until your body gives. It's a hard lesson, but it can and will happen. Look at me. My wild technique finally caught up with my elbow. With my damn arm. Proof enough: don't wale unless you can assail. (Don't use that line - I may need it for an album. I call ™ on that shit.)

Other than that...gettin' damn good at cookin' eggs. I kind of made it a priority this summer. On just a basic day I'll get the griddle nice and warm and rock some sunny-side up under a — get this — pan lid! You put like a spoonful of water under the lid with some cookin' eggs and voila, they steam so that the top cooks real nice as well. People even been commenting. Hell of makes me happy. I ain't even know why.

Whoah, almost forgot Beef was comin' over to watch some Sopranos with me. That is a stone chill we ain't get to often enough now that he's tucked in with Molly. Got to run - we havin' spaghetti and meatballs from Spiedore's and I got a phone to find.
