just can't wait to get on the road again

well we made it there!

somehow we managed to move the entire truck into the apartment in the matter of about 20 minutes. chalk it up to excellant packing, but wow... it all came together great! my 14 year old nephew carried all the heavy stuff.

(e:chico) - thanks for stopping by and bringing us beer! it was delicious and well needed by the time we got back and sat staring at the mounds and mounds of our belongings in the middle of the living room! it made us feel great!

(e:james) - sorry we didn't call you for the jello wrestling. it was over in an instant. who knew that a forty pound monkey could overpower a full grown goat that quickly?

and then we drove another 6 hours back to new paltz. gone already, i know...

and now it is late and my spinal cord has fused into one large question mark. i finally wrenched my fingers from the steering wheel and i don't think they will ever straighten again. 20 hours of driving in 5 days. my car and my body hates me.

happy fourth of july everyone! i'll be at work tomorrow, resting....

thanks again!

praise jersey~


i'm officially a couch pet. staying with kathi unil i'm fully moved into buffalo. there is something extremely discomforting about it all.

more importantly

jersey was amazing. delightful. swell sweet. delicious. oh my god did i just say that about JERSEY? i have problems.
no really we went to the beach and had excellant drunken times.

i'll mention just a couple highlites.

1. found out what happens if you do not put sunblock on evenly. i look like i have red camouflage (sp?) skin on my chest. very hot let me tell you.

2. it was interesting to walk behind my group of big dykes on the boardwalk so i could fully appreciate the gawking of all the meatheads. also drinking beer in the bathroom on the boardwalk when i clearl y didn't need any more.

3. kathi fell asleep on the beach and we have a lovely photo of her sleeping on her chair, all alone except for the random dude-bro that offered to take his photo with her. when we finally showed her later she was thoroughly amused.

4. in my drunkeness, lynda and i had a good ten minutes of interpretive dance which i may or may not post the video of when i get my camera cables back. it was moving.

5. waking up and driving home exhausted with a hangover and sore muscles from fighting with ocean waves yesterday.

i'm sure there is more but i'm half dead. but here is the real news. the uhaul (budget truck) is loaded. sitting back at my former residence waiting for me to come pick it and steven up so that we can head out. 8 am which means maybe 2 ish we will be there? did i mention that i'm in pain?
and hung over? i just took a 3.5 hour nap.

buffalo? i'll see you soon!

tick tock tick tock tick

times a tick tockin away!
tonight after work begins crunch time.

everything we own is getting moved to the garage. or to kathis. tomorrow morning lauren and i will be wrestling with the hoardes of ny city folk who are all on a mission of mass exodus of the hot and steamy city in favor of the ever so pristine jersey shore (sarcasm? noooo)
spending the weekend at the beach with a ridiculous amount of assholes i'm sure. but hey, sun and ocean and a free house a block away from the shore? sure.

i intend on mild inebriation throughout the weekend.

ending sunday morning, when we again will be facing the hoardes of (holyshiti'vegottagobacktowork)
in time to get lauren to work
and me to the budget rental truck
and then pack all night

monday afternoon, you will see me, there in buffalo
i'll be the one swearing under my breath at the 47 boxes of books(bricks) that have lauren's name all over them.

here we go!

grumble grumble

my throat hurts.

which sucks. i don't enjoy that very much. i thought that was supposed to end when i quit smoking. that was 9 months ago.

i think we have made a decision to move on the 2nd. so if anyone wants to stop by, we will be there. moving. and then we have to get back in the car and head back to NP on the morning of the 3rd so that we could go back to work. lovely, eh?

anyway, i need to go close my store. i think i'm going to go home, get ice cream and then nap.

ice cream + sore throat = mildly complacent.

my grandpap made dandelion wine

i drank a little too much blue moon last night...
but luckily i started out the day snuggling with a purring kitten... unless you are (e:paul), there is no way a bad day could start out with a purring kitten!

lauren just went out to lunch with her ex boyfriend... i wish she would hurry back with some food...

so my question is this...

what is everyones favorite hot spots around elmwood? (and i don't mean for wireless internet access)

coffee spots?

there is a place in NPZ that has the greatest food ever.... and I need to find a similar place..

also... i have a menu for 'just pizza' and noticed dandelions on several menu items... what is up with that? buffalo doesn't seem like the type of place to go all hippie tofu on me... whats the deal people?

ummmm yeah thats all for now.

oh wait....
one other question: is amy winehouse is really a white chick?

stick your beef between two buns....

yesterday i spent about a half an hour filling out an online resume / questionairre for cingular. they called this morning and wanted me to come in for an interview.

umm... sorry i don't live there yet...

but the fella said to call him when i made it to buffalo and he would set me up with an interview.


anyway, i managed to deposit approximately 16 envelopes filled with resumes and sparkly clean delicious cover letters with addresses of many different sprint/nextel/cingular/cricket/etc addresses on them. I sent none to verizon as i have beef with the verizon store here in the mall.

did i really just say that i have 'beef' ?

anyway, in hopes of attracting all kinds of star wars lovers that may open up said envelopes, i was sure to affix a lovely star wars stamp on each of the envelopes. I saved Darth Vader for the Sprint store.

its going to be tough juggling all the interviews i'm going to have, and even tougher deciding which company deserves me the most...
  • sigh*

I just invited my boss and his wife to my going away party, and lured him in with the seduction of 'drunken slip and slide' he was panting with excitement.... at least that is what he said.

tonight i;m going to kick back with a 6 pack of blue moon and enjoy me friday night... just wish i could get out of here now.

We just got back from Buffalo
(pics later)

We went first to esquared's sheldon apartments wherein they started showing us this first apartment....

"the guys who lived here before were artsy"

and when i mentioned (e:jim) and (e:james) she promptly said that it was their apartment!

we saw your plaaaaacceee...

lauren loves your color preference, but we have no idea how you could have lived with that kitchen...

and i have to ask... they were really going to raise your rent due to the 'balcony'?

anyway - we went over to the other place and fell in love. we took it.
we are official (e:strip)peerrss!!! 367 elmwood baby!

more soon...

rooaaaddd trip.

buffalo HERE I COME!

i think we are leaving around 5 am. lauren hates me for that. but i'm driving, right?

we have to get up to wilson and drop off a bunch of my stuff at my brothers house, visit, and make it over to my other brothers house in ransomville before heading back into buffalo for a 2 oclock double appointment at sheldon apartments and elmwood village apartments.

then i have to run around putting in applications all over b-lo

tuesday morning at 9 we are to call and confirm a noon showing of another apartment.

we also have to call about a 2 bedroom on ashland.

and do some more job hunting

and lauren has to go visit the college at some point.


and I still do not know where i'm going to end up staying. the problem is now that my family is guilting me into staying with them. oh sweet jesus if they were to find out that i came to western ny and did not stay with them then they would be convinced that the world is ending... so lauren and i are just going and saying the hell with it - we will get to where we are getting and do what we have to do....

okay i need to get some food and look for more apartments online
