yea. i'd still kick his ass

After a rather length discussion with a friend of mine that I haven't talked to in over three years, I decided that if I saw my ex-boyfriend walking down the street, I'd kick his ass.

He's in Chicago now, haha but (e:strip)pers may be privey to a street fight at somepoint. :-p

I feel bad sometimes for not keeping in touch with friends that have moved away. My friend Patrick has been out of Buffalo for over four years now and we talk maybe once a year on the phone. He's so freak crazy its awesome.


In other news... (e:matthew), lechworth looks amazing. I'd like to go see the colors in the southtowns at somepoint.


(e:leetee), do you know if its true that I'd have to give up my US citizenship to apply for Canadien citizenship? I heard you can get a Jamacain citizenship in like three hours?! p.s. sweet pictures of the Terminal! I wish they'd turn it into living and office space. I think that would be so neat.

Long Time No Post

Its been a really long time since I posted something.

Elmwood looks vibrant. I'm glad many of the vacant buildings are being redone.

The Co-Op is cool, but I never went there when it was on Lexington, and I keep forgetting about it when I have to go to the store, so I still shop at Wegmans out of habit.

I went on a shopping spree and bought a PowerBook G4, a case from Timbuk2 and a bag from them as well. They have such cool shit!

I got a lap stand for my laptop too.

I wish I could say something exciting has happened in my life, but nope. Its been really normal. No broken bones, noses, etc.

Work has even been really calm. Go figure.

Oops

haha it just occured to me that i never posted anything about the 10k entry party. it was a lot of fun. it was nice to meet everyone. (e:ladycroft) maybe this fall we can go geocaching.

I made a friend at the gym this week. She's in her 60's, retired school teacher and can bench press 185lbs. Its quite fun to lift with her. sadly i think our relationship is short lived. she goes to the gym in the afternoon, I prefer to go in the am. :(

I'm glad this week is over. Work royally sucked, mostly because of a series of misunderstandings and the fact that the scheduling dept at buffalo general hospital is an evil department. Who puts their garbage can underneath the broken tray of the fax machine?! {im not kidding; for the longest time faxes were just falling into the garbage can and no one was pulling them out of the trash}

priorities

Did anyone else happen to catch the small blurb in the newspapers about how the Discovery crew saw huge stretches of land that we have destroyed? Complete forestes just disappeared since the last time the shuttle was up in space?

It was in the paper monday or tuesday I think, it was shortly after the shuttle got into space.



Funny how that isn't on the news at all and a story about our continuted hunt for osama bin laden is. I wonder how regulated the government keeps our news feeds.

a-bomb

When I was 11 my dad took me to Japan with him. We spent three days in Hiroshima while he gave a talk at a conference. Our hotel was across the bridge from the peace park, the location where the bomb landed. Inside it was solemn and dead quiet. There weren't any people talking, there were no birds chirping. It was completely silent.

When you walked around the muesem, they had display after display after display of how horrid the atomic bomb was. There was a set of concrete stairs with just an outline of where the person was sitting. Their body had been evaporated by the blast. There were pictures of people trying to walk down the streets with their skin just falling off the them.

Further into the park, there were thousands of paper crane's in the grass. I guess the school kids made them every year to remember the people that had died.

The United States use of the Atomic bomb was a mistake. Future use of nuclear warheads will do nothing except probably seal our fate. It would take what, five ICBM's to completly knock out most of the country, if not make it entirely uninhabitable?

ugh.

Poof!

I took the day off from work today. Wow! I so much stuff done it was incredible. No lines anywhere, just mostly middle aged women and kids all over the place.

After two hours of one-on-one training I am pretty sure my dog will now go to the end of the driveway and pick up the papers in the morning and bring them back to the door, provided the treat is already in my hand. I know he had it after the first try, the rest were just for the food. haha

Masiello

When are people going to start telling Masiello to just shut up. I am so tired of reading articles about the city that cite Masiello saying the same thing every time: "::insert proposal:: is going to revitalize the city. Today is a good day for Buffalo. ::people from inserted proposal:: are going to revitilitalize the downtown area bringing in ::insert ridiculous number:: of tourists. We ::people from inserted proposal:: want to that mayor Masiello and the good people of Erie county and the City of Buffalo for their support and recognition of this great project ::as they accept a retarded amount of cash we cannot afford to give them::."

I'm still really skeptical of the entire Bass Pro deal. Remember when Adelphia was going to revitalize the downtown area? Remember when is all we can say. Masiello is for every proposal and when it fizzels out, he's standing on the corner yelling "I told you so". C'mon. Bass Pro is building a larger "campus" in Pittsburgh, with a fraction of the public funds they got from Buffalo.

Buffalo News Article today--Jill Beck, a downtown resident and former president of the group Working for Downtown, was skeptical of the Bass Pro project until recently. The thought of an outdoor store attracting up to 5 million visitors a year seemed outlandish. But her skepticism turned to excitement after she joined a delegation on a trip last spring to the Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World store in a Toronto suburb.

"I got back on the bus and said, "Oh my God, they're not crazy after all.' "

Buffalo is not Toronto. They've already developed their waterfront and it has been able to sustain itself for a number of years.

I want to know where the plan is to develop our waterfront? We cannot just put a retail store in the Aud and then have people schlep through deserted streets and underpasses to what? that loading dock between the grain elevators and the storage space for the ice boom?

What ever became of public ridicule of terrible public officials? Tar and feather anyone?
