been without internet for a few days. The internet gods have weilded the angry hand of encryption onto our free web access.

At work now. Lunch break. Just ordered some internet so god knows when we are going to get it at home. Also going to probably need to buy a wireless modem at some point or string cable across my apartment like christmas lights. maaann this is cutting into my puppy money.

Friday we watched 'anatomy' and i have to say its a good thing we didn't have internet because i would have had to yell at (e:jim) for that one... it was sooo baddddd! actually it probably would have been much better if it was dubbed in english. Because the voice overs were done by people who didn't even seem interested in acting at all. it was horrible. Subtitles would have been more acceptable.

Saturday's battle at buffalo was the greatest ever... my teacher even slid across the floor on his head. the greatest move ever.

Sunday we went to the park behind the albright knox. which was pretty cool and i can't wait to have a puppy dog that i can bring there...

and now monday. back to work.

Buffalo News says they are expecting Gang initiations tonight by people bumping your car and then when you get out, they assault the driver...

I just spent about ten mnutes looking at the Dachshund Rescue of North America's website and at all the special need puppies and I think I would like to cry. I wish I had the place and space for fostering dogs.

Easter was a great day off. Went to my grams for brunch and chatted it up with all my fam. Nice to see everyone finally after all these months. you would think that i would see them more often now that i've moved within 80 miles of them, huh?

Well my sister in law works for a butcher and I came home with a bunch of ham steaks and chicken. In a few weeks she and her brother are splitting a quarter of a cow, and she invited me to split some of it too. Score. Cow.

Lessee what else. Going to the Toronto Zoo on April 18th. Since I don't have a passport I believe I need a DL PLUS a birth certificate. I think I have my birth certificate somewhere, but it must be hanging out in the same place that Lauren's missing passport is.

Ah well time to get ready for work...

i got (e:lauren) excited about the dachshunds i think... hehe

I have such a constant set of vacations that I am due to go on throughout the summer that it will be difficult to bring Ralphy with us. Can't leave old Ralphy at home alone like the cats.

I am finding that if there is a dachshund in a shelter, it is so much of a mix with other breeds that it doesn't even look like a doxie anymore. Or its old and cranky. I mean I feel so guilty leaving those little guys there in the shelter, but I don't want to wait forever for the right one with rescue needs to come along... How mean and horrible does that sound?

(E:Lauren) and I have discussed the possibility of being a foster home for puppies lateron in life. I think it will be a wonderful experience when we get to that point where we will have a yard and whatnot.
what could be better than a yard full of dog poo, right?

I have to go to work...

easter puppy!

Ok guys first of all I've missed (e:matthew)'s birthday.. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MATTHEW! Sorry I missed it!

I dunno what else i missed as I don't have much time to read posts... I know you are all forgiving..

(e:lauren) and I colored easter eggs last night. And by easter eggs I mean my fingers. So now i have a red finger, a blue finger and a green finger. how fun is that?

I also bought her a pot of some tulips. I have high hopes for these suckers... they will survive!

I have finally worn her down in terms of letting me have a dog. So I've decided that I'm going to have a Dachshund.
Her stipulations for said dog: Black and tan, Shorthair, Must cost around $100 or less.

We also think it must be young so it will be good with cats, but I guess that is something that is flexible. I know that when we have a larger place and maybe a yard we may do the whole 'rescued animal' thing... but right now i just want my Dachshund.

Soooo... if anyone has any clues on where I can find my dog... lemme know!!!

prophets and revelry

Okay after hearing all the yelling and commotion yesterday I have to say that next year i will definetely be out enjoying st. paddy's day...

I spent the day catching up on chores and painting. Which was nice. in fact i think i spent about 4 hours painting.

Put aside my book on aliens and multidimensions finally as my brain hurt and slowed to a drizzle every time i attempted to make sense of it.

I finally picked up my book on the readings of "Edgar Cayce" the crazy prophet of the early 1900s. Its interesting to read some of his predictions (Nebraska will be the west coast by 2100) but the thing I really have to push through is that he was extremely religious and since he lived around the turn of the century I have to pick through it to understand. He speaks as if he were reading directly from a Bible, if the Bible discussed the bombing of pearl harbor.

Ah well.. hopefully this will go better than the last book. I do think I should be reading more...

okay off for some stretching and, yes... work.

cheating with thai food

i'm taking baby steps here...

we have been getting the 'thai kitchen' stuff from wegmans.

Thai kitchen

and decided it was time to try and make it myself.

but not really since I just bought the premade peanut sauce and some rice noodles. kind of lame cop out but whatever...

but looking at peanut sauce recipes - it doesn't look too difficult... so I guess i'll try that at some point...

but really i have a strong desire to make my own spinach pasta... it actually looks kind of easy... we will see...

mind power

My sales have been down lately at work... not a good thing when I made such a great impression for my first six months on the job... so today on my way into work... i got excited for how much money i was going to make. I really got excited and beleived that i was going to put the store over $1000 GP for the day (a rare occurance for the store I was going to)

lo and behold? $1,300 GP. My portion being over $900. It was a damn fine day. Now I just need to keep with it.

Now some of you might say that 'positive thinking' is corny and coincidental and blah blah blah... but i have to say that 9 times out of 10... when i decide something is going to happen and i really believe it and feel the emotions of how great that thing is - it happens. i mean on typical stuff not like winning the lottery and whatnot.

I used to do this a lot for parking spaces. Yes i know.... parking spaces. I worked in a mall and expecially during the holidays it was HELL. But then Imagine going to the Palisades Mall (huge mall just north of NYC) on the week before christmas and deciding that I would have a spot within 5 spaces of the handycap parking and getting the 5th spot exactly. On two separate occasions. And in the mall that I worked at it would happen all the time...

So anyway, point of the story... I am focusing on this sort of additude as much as I possibly can. Getting my sales through the roof.... Its going to be great...

Has anyone seen the secret?

days off as an afterthought

Yesterday I went to work only to discover that I didn't need to go to work today. Yeah I drove all the way to Lockport and found out that the schedule didn't have me on it. Vacation day!

But I guess it was not a total waste. I went to Niagara Produce and gassed up at Smokin Joes. Not that the gas I spent on driving up there didn't overturn the savings, but whatever.

I spent like 3 hours painting. I Love how time flies when i'm focusing all my attention on a canvas. I also love painting abstractly - its very meditative. Very serene. As (e:lauren)'s pompous ex told me once "abstract art is the only true art" (blah blah blah)... I should probably erase that before she reads it.

I got upset later when I didn't put my headphones away while i was doing other stuff. When I came back to them my asshole cat ate through the wires. Seriously... he is like a teething puppy! Asshole.

Dance class... Now officially Wednesdays and Fridays. And heather has officially begun to push me and yell at me as I asked her to. Dammit why did i do that? getting into shape hurts.

i (e:mrmike) comment about jobs at the zoo. I reeaaally wish i could have that as a part time job. I loves me some zoo!

last night (e:lauren) and I purchased two train tickets to Florida.

This is an extremely big deal for us because A) I've never been on a plane, B) I freak out when making big purchases and C) (e:lauren) gets nervous on flights.

ok flor ida? I'm meeting my friends there. It would not have been my choice to be honest with you, but oh well. But seriously - what this actually means is that my flight leaves in 7 weeks and 2 days and there needs to be some sort of preparation.. yup you heard it right, 'preparation'.

this involves not eating after 9.
no more sweets.
no more eating out.
no more 3 hours of tv a night.
water water water!
No more relying on carbs as my major form of food.
Veggies Veggies Veggies!

Its going to be just dandy I tell you. Dandy. Also I am going to create the possibility of not being miserable.

On a side note... my friend Steven from NP asked me to post a photo on here of him in a lime green thong with a puddy tat on it. But i seem to have lost the photo. ah well...

Another side note: I have somethin weird going on with my eye. my right eye feels itchy. it looks like there is a bump on the inside of thelid and its red and gross lookin...
