Where have I been

I have been so busy with work. It seems to somehow take up my entire life on most days. Lots of awesome stuff got done but mostly I am just tired right now.

The roof is going to start this or next week. There goes $20,000 - at last it isn't the $30,000 I thought it was going to be.

My work is making me use a blackberry because the iphone is too insecure

The upside is that he blackerry is for work only and comes with tethering which which means my iphone's battery will probably last longer.

I found this awesome ibm site that tracks visualizations. Its pretty neat.

Mowing the lawn

It's 12:45am and that blur near the street is my neighbor who just started mowing his lawn. What the fuck?!

It's been going on for like 40 minutes, at first I thought it was a helicopter but then it just kept going.

Delaware park


Shakespeare in the park is jammin. There are so many people.

On another note, The water in Hoyt lake is fucking disgusting.
Normally I would say freaking but seriously the disgustingness really
deserved the upgrade.

There are so many cans and bottles jammed up in the weeds. Who throws
their garbage in the water. I think those people deserve to be tazered.

I wonder if there could be any hope in cleaning it up by making the
water flow better. I mean I have seen lakes in other city parks that
wernt so sick.

Cosmo at walmart


When at walmart in new hampshire, I was fascinated by three things.

1. The prices, we never go to walmart but holy crap shit is cheap -
still I think a lot of it is lesser quality. A good example is that
the Hanes cotton t-shirts we bought at walmart are definately thinner
and more cheaply seamed than the ones we got at target. It's obvious
to the eye.

2. Just how trashy, white trash can get.

3. That this woman with revealing cleavage on the cover of cosmo is
not too revealing to be shown but the word sex and all the article
titles are.

At the ledges in vermont

Damn, this is really lame compared to my previous posts about the ledges, sorry.

We spent the whole day swimming in perfect 80 degree sunshine in nothing other than SPF 60 NOAD sunscreen but there is not one pic.

Sorry (e:mike) the sunscreen was from walmart, can we still be brothers, lol? While I was already there I also bought socks. Its kind of a ridiculous story, I was so hungover the morning we left I only brought the outfit I was wearing and have worn it every day since. Today, I got to change my socks. Luckily, we swam almost everyday so I don't smell that bad. I mean I know I am an outfit repeater but I generally change my socks and underwear.

So back to the ledges? Who goes swimming for the whole day and doesn't bring snacks? Well we did. not sure what I was thinking there - aren't snacks a quintessential part of the whole aquatic experience.

We also met this guy who runs a gay campground in new Hampshire
that is only 4 miles away from our current lame ass campsite in Vermont. He said they have horses. Sadly, we had prepaid for the cluster camp spot because we didn't know where else to go. I would like to never camp at fort dummer again. Maybe we can revisit that new hampshire place someday.

If you are ever in Brattleboro, Vermont eat at the top of the hill BBQ stand. It's pretty delicious and priceworthy.

Finally a boring picture. This car in the parking lot at the ledges was seriously dinged up. I guess the owner thought bandaids would help.

Indoor honey farm


I would really like to have a fancy indoor honey farm like this one.
It's really fun to watch.

Sliding down a mountain


Skilift is kinda shaky. At the end you ride down in a sled. How
awesome is that. I wonder why none of our WNY ski resorts add
something like this. You can go really freakin fast.

We decided to head south to the ledges but unfortunately we hit a one
day bad weather patch which trapped us in a motel for today ;(
