Busy Weekend

Well tonight is Paul's Birthday Party so Happy Birthday. I have to go home shower try to find someting to change into, I think I need to find cash buy something to drink at the party. For those not going or going later there is a Sabres Game on Tonight and another one on Saturday. I will miss both of them since I will Be at the Bandits game Vs. the swarm at HSBC Area. I think there is a wake or at least a viewing that I'm going to with the family on saturday but I have no idea at what time it is. Then on Sunday there are two Football games (Assuming we don't lose fox) to watch both could be amazing games. Then back to work on Monday I have a fealing this weekend is going to fly by way to fast.

Razing the Aud

If my understand is correct now that Bass Pro if they ever come here won't be using the Aud that has brought about the Idea of razing it. I think that is a horid idea. Granted that no one has come up with an idea that has worked for the Aud as of yet. But just because you havn't had anyone try to use it, dosn't mean that you tare the building down. I admit that the way the arena is set up that it would be tough to use it for anything else with out a lot of building taking place inside the building. Then i got a crazzy idea. Why not use it as an ice rink or at least the rink part of it. You could maybe even use it as an arena for concerts and things that wouldn't get a crowd as big as HSBC but bigger then sheas or that needs a bigger stage, like a small circus. As cool as new arenas are one of the problems is that they arn't verry acomdating and the seats are close togather. From what I remember of the Aud that wasn't really the case. But maybe some seats could be taken out and then the seats spread apart then the seats that are pulled out could be sold or auctioned off maybe even for charity. When there warn't any events it could be a open as Museum with pictures and information about Buffalo over the years. My point is if you go to Toronto Maple Leaf Gardens is still there. You can say what you want about Leaf fans but I went to a Lacrosse Game at Maple Leaf Gardens when the Air Canada Center (ACC) was allready open. Did the Toronto Rock wind up moving to the ACC yes but the Garden is still there. I also think that taring down the Rock pile after the Bisons moved was another bad idea. I understand that that turned it into a great football field and a cool track. But they could have done that with out destroying most of the building and just opdated the things that needed to be modernised.

Work Better and stuff

First of all I can't say to much about work. But that being said it has gotton better. The reason is that our former boss is back to being our boss again. It should stay that way and hopefully his boses don't get any ideas about changing things up.

On a side note Sabres just took the lead. I know a few people at the game tonight.

Oh the other day in chat I mentioned I wanted to get Paul something for his Birthday well my plan went up in smoke verry quickly. The place that I saw it on sale a couple weeks ago only had a verry (to me) at least expesive version of it and the other place I saw something simalur but not as good didn't have it anymore. So for that I'm sorry. Now why would I post this.... Well I was talking about maybe getting him something in chat when he was online so I thought I should mention it in a post. So I know it isn't as good but I gave a donation to the site so maybe it will help. The part that makes me feal bad is that when I first saw what a saw I should have just bought it (even though then I didn't know a birthday was coming up). Well I guess I learned that when you see something you should just buy it at the time.

Curse of Ice

Pictures I took of the ice storm hope you (e:peeps) like them. I think one of them might be oreinted the wrong way, yeah oops. I also went to see "Curse of the Golden Flower". It was verry good but it wasn't really a "Kung Fu" movie. Yes there where battles but they where more like war battles not one on one like in say a Jet Li movie. Also if you are looking for a happy ending type of movie it isn't that either. I guess it would be a period piece or maybe a tradgy. There is a good review of it in artvoice. I liked it but it wasn't what I thought it would be. It has to be one of the most visualy stunning movies I have seen. I'm not just talking about all the hot ladies in the film. Look below the ice pictures for pictures from the movie. Oh yeah 24 was awesome last night and should be just as great tonight.

I don't think the few pictures I found on Yahoo really do the movie Justice. Clothes wise yes but the sets are so colorfull they allmost look tiedyed inspired I know that dosn't sound good but I mean it in a positive way.

One kitten picture (sis's not mine) well ok two and that it.

Bandits Pictures

I admit that if you arn't into Lacrosse then this post will bore you. I admit some of the pictures are kinda strange since I shoot through glass. I used to have a camera that had a glass setting so you wouldn't get any distortion or anything oh yeah plus players move around. Oh and for you guys and maybe even some of the girls here there are pictures of the Bandetes (how ever you spell it). When you use the mutliple upload tool and do more then one picture at a time by using the control key for some reason the pictures get out of order but for these pictures and most of mine I guess order dosn't matter so here goes, by the way the Bandits won. On a side note I did have a good time last night (friends of the family) but was kinda upset cause I was the only one who wanted to see football or even the sabres so it didn't get watched oh well.

Bandits Valentines

Ok so last Night I went to the first Home game for the Buffalo Bandits. The Bandits won in what would up in the end a close game. In the begining the Bandits scored quick but the tittans changed goalies. I think at one point the bandits might have but up like 6 or 7 to 1 I lost track I was having so much fun. I sit next to a bunch of cool guys right up on the glass. That is one thing that is nice about sports. You may have only the love for the team in common but that is enough and someone the entire (ok some of or most of) the crowd can bond. It dosn't matter what you think sexauly or politicaly or soicaly but you have that common bond that you are pulling for your team. I'm doing sometihing tonight where I may take pics so hopefully I will put game pictures up on monday I hope. Hopefully I will still get to see most of the NFL games on today and tonight. Even though they arn't teams that I care about to much they shoud still all be great games. So today I'm at Right Aide looking for snacks and video tapes and before I even walk in I can see these huge Valentines day hearts, oh great now i'm fealling crappy. But for those of you who are all romantic and love the holiday you should check out M&M's website. If I understand it correctly you can order them in what ever color you want or even in packs that match the theme of your party or event or whatever. But if the add I saw was correct you can get little sayings on them kinda like those candy hearts. I had something else I wanted to mention Oh yeah I'm taking a vacation day on monday. I just hope I can stay awake for the new Adult Swim lineup I missed it last sunday and there was some new cartoon on called Smoking Gun, along with Assy McGahee, Robot Chicken, Moral Orel and not sure what the other one is. Tonight is Bleach and Trinity Blood both of wich I really enjoy.

out early for me

Today it was so nice to leave work around the time I'm supposed to a little bit after 3. We are usaly busy enough that I stay till 4 or sometimes 5. There where still things to do it is just that others where doing them and there wasn't much I could really do that would help them. It was nice to get home and then go see the family and eat togather for a few minutes (usaly I could care less). I usaly eat as I watch TV at home. I had time to go on line both here and myspace and WWE and read mail. I also had fun playing with my sisters kitten. Every once in wheile you need to chase him around the house. If you walk into another room he will often follow you. The one thing though is it is often a losing battle he is more mobile and quick then you are, plus he can hide under a bed or other small places. I will admit that I hardly ever run anymore but it was kinda fun, plus it is good for him to. It was nice just to relax. Now I'm off to watch the House M.D. and tape Boston Legal (both are great shows). I think some award show is on also and I think Miami Ink is on tonight also. There is no way I can see them all. Not to Mention Wrestling is on at the same time as Miami-Ink and Boston Legal so it should be a nice relaxed night.

SabresBandits



The above link should lead (hopefully) to the Buffalo News's first sunday page. It has two articles about Ryan Miller that I found interesting (in the paper it was kinda one). The only thing I didn't like about it was that it implied that if the sabres win the Stanley Cup it would be Buffalos first championship or was that major championship. Yes I get that the bisons are Minor League baseball, Yes I understand that the Rochester Americans are Minor league hockey. But it seems that everyone dicounts the bandits. Is it true that everyone who plays also has a real job, Yes. Is it true that it is a small league, Yes. Is it true that it has hardly any national coverage, Yes. But in terms of Lacorose it is as big as it gets, it is professional. The Bandits are Truely the only Buffalo Team to win a Championship and they are the first. But wait that may not be true I thought the Bills won a championship before the two leagues combined. The Bandits have been close to winning a couple more championships lately but have fallen a little short. Wouldn't it be awesome if this was the year for both them and the sabres. In any event the Bandits home Opener is this friday vs. (if memory serves) The New York Titans (expansion team). I'm sure I will post pictures if I have the time with football on saturday if nothing else some cheerleader pictures.

Sunday,Sunday

[link=http://www.estrip.org/articles/metalpeter/751.htm]

If i did it right that link leads to a journal that is now empty for somereason. This is kinda a reposting but not really. In early december I was going to write about shows that where coming back on TV But then it looked like they warn't coming back on but now it looks like they will be back on. Sometime in January Prision Break returns on Fox, great show glad to see it back. If you havn't seen it there is a good show called Heroes on NBC. I started watching it when my mondays when my monday fox show got axed it really is verry good that will be back soon. On Sunday The L Word returns to showtime sho.com has more info on the show and back episodes I think are on show on demand. But the show I'm looking forward to the most is 24. It is on for two hours a week from sunday and then another 2 hours on Monday. I have seen some of the previews and it really looks good. That being said I wonder how far in advance they will start from where they last left off. On a side note I don't know if 24 will start on time cause I'm not sure about what time the fox NFL game is next week but I'm sure I'll be watching like I will be today and tomorow.

It builds and builds

I wish I could say more about work, not sure where the line is of if someone was to read this what would be ok and not be ok. So all I will say is it is driving me crazzy. Our old boss worked with us and filled orders and also did office stuff, but our new boss is a manager "With 35 years of experience" to bad he dosn't even know how to do what we do and so has no buisness being a boss. He likes to micro manage things that is a bad idea it really is. He changes things that worked fine and that there warn't any problems with. I not saying everything he does is bad, but he sure thinks he is the place's savor. Today he came out and told people how to stack product on a skid but yet he never does an order himself and has no idea how changing one product stands on a pallet of mixed goods changes everything around and can mess things up. There are somedays that I just feal like walking out and never coming back. This place used to be so fun to work at (oh yeah and still do all of our work). For those of you who don't know this there are 3 (well maybe more) sides to me. The verry quite and keep to myself peacefull side. The social and crazzy breaking on people in good fun side. Then the really angry side of me, that side seems to be coming out a lot lately and I mean really a lot. I know it all stems from work and hopefully it stays at work. I find sometimes angry or aggresive music can help calm one down but to much of it can have the opposite effect. Maybe I should play something aggrisive as I watch the sabres. I doubt anyone reading this can really get the full picture of why the new boss gets me so upset sometimes but that is ok, cause I'm writing this more to vent then anything really. Wait payday is tommorow at least that is good. If any one knows any good anger realeases don't be affarid to leave me a comment.
