wiki-woo!

So I've been neglectful of my (e:strip) journal. bad (e:strip)per. especially since I'll actually be living in the (e:strip) soon and will no longer be a poser from Kenmore/Amherst as I am right now.

I'm sure y'all know about (e:MK) and I getting a SWEET apartment on Richmond. We're PUMPED.

It's great when good comes out of bad. Loooong story short my aunt's ex-husband has a LOT of stuff in his old apartment he won't be coming back for so we get it. A bed frame, TV, bookshelf, Coffee table, dishes, kitchen table and chairs and some other random stuff. Plus we have a lot of stuff from my grandparents including a mattress and box spring that I need.

The only thing we've spent money on so far is the couch...which we bought thanks to a tip from (e:jill) at the As Is store at the Salvo on Military... For this couch which is a full sized sleeper sofa we paid $15. Excused me, $16.31 with tax. And we bought a mattress topper for $40 to make the bed comfortable for our drunk friends who need a place to crash. We'll need to buy new bedroom stuff and a chair for the living room. And I'm buying a table from a friend of mine for $10. Awesome.

I can't wait to move in.


June 9th!!! Free Beer! Free Pizza!! Lots of Maloy quality time!! wooooo!!!


:)

Buffalo Movie

Saw "Buffalo Movie" last night at Road Less Traveled Productions.

The show had good energy and 2 bad actors, but all in all it wasn't so bad, I could go into great detail, but meh, don't feel like it.


The reason that I'm mentioning the show at all is to tell you that the word "Buffalo" was used an UNBELIEVABLE number of times in the show. 82 in the second act alone, I didn't count the first but it was probably just as many as the second. That's like 160 "Buffalo"s. WTF? we get it, we're in BUFFALO!

It depresses me when I can see friendships sliding away. Its for the best, we're growing apart and this friend is just depressing these days, and has been for the past year or so. I want to help them but in the many ways I've tried, nothing seems to work.

Total random sidenote, hung out with Becky Graham who went out with us for Joyce's 22nd bday, last night (when we saw Buffalo Movie) and I learned she works at the Customer Service desk at Wegman's and consequently also works at the dry cleaning counter and we traded war stories and pricing. it was magical. Long story short: Wegman's is waaaayy cheaper, but takes a lot longer and isn't as good. Like things constantly have to be sent back because they're really wrinkled or just not done right, that never happens at the Urban Valet, like I've never seen something I thought needed to be sent back because it was badly done. We're SWEET. haha. but we're EXPENSIVE.

Like at Wegman's a man's dress shirt is $1.35 if you want it hung on a hanger, its $2.25 here. But it takes 5 business days to get it back at Wegman's and 2 business days at the most here at the Urban Valet. Yes I'm actually at work as I'm writing this.

Why did I just write so much about dry cleaning?

So since you all like answering my questions I post in here (which is appreciated) has anyone here ever temped as in gone from one random job to another? I'm just wondering how much notice they give you and if you can say no without being screwed over and all that stuff.

It's (almost) oooooooooover

Last day of undergrad classes was yesterday. So I spent my first class at UB in Alumni 188, and my last. How poetic.

Went to a party for like an hour last night but had to leave early because I had to work at 7. booooo.

Senior Dinner tonight, I'm excited, but I know it'll be sad. Oh man, so sad. I fully anticipate many many tears.

I'm not too devastated about college ending (at the moment anyway).
I know I'll be sad tonight and at the formal and at graduation, and next semester when I hear about something happening that I would've been a part of if I was still at UB. It's going to be so weird.

I know I'll be fine and that eventually I will get over college (maybe by 35).

On the plus side, once I get a better higher paying job, (e:mk) and I are getting an apartment. It'll be sweeeeeeeet.

Anyone ever used an employment agency? A friend of mine used Dunhill Staffing and got a full time permanent job that way. I'm just not exactly sure what I have to do to get them to want to find me a job.

Total sidenote, am I the only one who always forgets the "publish" button is at the top, and clickes on the NEW: select multiple media files to upload thing instead?

In Class

I'm in class and not paying attention. This is awesome. Why don't I bring my laptop to class all the time?

Oh well, too bad undergrad is ending in 5 days.
Grad school will apparently be riddled with me on my computer not paying attention. Awesome.

Well done.

Apparently my professor knows someone who has ferrets and has many outfits for them.

My dad totally killed my guinea pig. He left him in the sun for too long and his water like boiled and he died.hahahaha. well done Jim Maloy.

I want a pet for when (e:mk) and I get an apartment.

maybe a hamster or a mouse. sweet.

movin' out

so (e:mk) and I might get an apartment in the coming months.

she just asked me if its weird for siblings to live together, i responded with "who fucking cares"? who's with me?!?!

we found a building on Elmwood and Summer that seems sweet with all the things we deemed necessary (heat included, 24 hour emergency maintenance, security system) and best of all on site laundry and off street parking. sweeeeeeet.

Yo. I did mean to spell Buffalo the spanish way.

I'm really hungry. I don't feel like going to class. Good times.

It's cold in here.

This is quite a fascinating entry.

Cute WorkOut Man

There's a guy a see the CFA a couple times a week. He's always dressed as though he is going to/coming from the gym, which is coincidentally right next to the Center For the Arts.

I have no idea who he is but we should be in love. I don't know anything about him despite my vain attempts to find him in the all knowing hub of facebook.

I need suggestions for how to find out who he is. Don't give me any "just talk to him" business, because we all know Anne is really awkward and would end up saying something totally ridiculous.

He looks like a Nick or a Josh. Maybe I'll just call him NickJosh Windpants and be done with it. Brilliant.
