Mattress adventure

Yesterday (e:terry) and I helped out (e:Robert) and drove out to North Tonawanda to do mattress shopping. We went to American Freight on the Boulevard. Robert found them online advertising crazy cheap mattresses, like $30. We drive out there and its this old pepsi warehouse, completely chaotic. There were so many people and salesmen swarming everywhere, hawking all this discount furniture and these giant stacks of mattresses. Seems like a huge fire hazard. The customers there were very North Tonawanda trash.

Robert got a new bed set and the employee managed to strap it on to the car.

On the way back we stopped at Trader Joes and Chipotle, hoping we could get a quesaritto (buritto made with a cheese quesadilla) but it was real busy. I was absolutely stuffed.

Bis Bald


After two hours of sleep, (e:paul), (e:yesthatcasey) and I got up at 6 so I could take them to the airport. it was real chaotic and we were cutting it close on time. I dropped them off at the terminal about 7:15 for an 8am flight. I just got back. I haven't had to be up this early in a long time.

One week seems so long. Ich vermisse Paolo schon!

Hope its super bromantic! Wish we could escape the cold too.

Gabriel's Gate and Madonnas


last night (e:paul) and I went out with Carrie and Emily to Gabriel's Gate. We originally were going to try Don Tequila or Cantina but they had hours long waits, crazy. I got the North Street sandwich which was a portobello and Paul got the Linwood.

After dinner we met up with Lindsay and her sister at Madonnas. We ended up going on Tinder and seeing who we knew. Its pretty much a dating app based entirely on Facebook pictures.

(e:terry) was at DBGBs for the Breadhive thing. He went a little crazy because when he got back, he headed straight for under the table.

Getting out of the house

Yesterday morning I received really disappointing news about an opportunity I was hoping for. It really sucked and I was upset about it for a bit, but I realized the only option is to keep working for when the next opportunity comes up.

After I got home I went to Spot to work on the form building site. I thought it would be hard to work since it's always so loud but I actually got more done than I usually do in a 24. Being in complete silence makes me sleep or go crazy, especially now that (e:paul) and (e:terry) are working close to 12 hours every day. I ended up seeing Catherine there and hung out with her for a bit. I also found out I won $10 to White Rabbit on facebook, so if anyone wants to get poisoned (e:joe,58422)

There's a new hookah lounge coming in the old Ambrosia space. I'm pretty blah on hookah but hopefully there will be good food.

The next month of cheese came in - one has 75% butterfat. Redonk.

To keep up Paul and my crazy bougie dessert binge I stopped at Wasabi to get some mochi. They had four flavors and all sounded freaking amazing. I had to get one of each.

When I got back I watched some Teen Wolf with Terry before Paul came back around 1.

How far would you go?

How far would you go, to save your news station?
I was reading an article on WIVB's website and this huge ad for a special on WGRZ came up/
It seems so crazy that Channel 4 can't or doesn't manage their ads to prevent something like that showing up. I guess Channel 2 must be targeting pages about spice?

Fancy dessert

Last night (e:terry) went to go watch UFC with (e:yesthatcasey). (e:paul) and I stayed in did a crazy amount of German chat routletting. Eventually we needed a snack.

We ended up making a ridiculous dessert of vanilla mochi, plus marscapone cheese, apricot jam, quince paste and natural maraschino cherries. I don't know if I've ever had anything better.

The white balance is always so off on pictures in the kitchen. I wish I could adjust it better on the phone.

Erica's Birthday

Saturday we had a party for (e:czarkasm)'s 26th. The house was absolutely tricked out with purple theme and outfits. I didn't have any purple to wear, but the bottle of Gato ended up on my shirt so that counts.

Erica took her spankings like a champ, and made an awesome toffee bar dessert and a taco dip.

I accidently/on purpose slapped (e:paul) in his infected tooth, because of (e:mike,58687). I still feel bad about that.

Ice Caves at Crystal Beach


(e:paul), (e:terry) and I got off the couch this afternoon to go walk around the ice caves at Crystal Beach. Apparently the wind and the cold weather made these crazy huge formations on the shore.

The lake was rock solid, and the combination of the snow and setting sun made it so amazing. We couldn't even climb some of them.

Icy walk at Times Beach

It looked so nice outside today I had to get out of the house. (e:paul) called it to (e:terry) when they got their hair cut.

Terry's leg wasn't the best so just Paul and I went, but not before they almost broke each other. We drove down to Times Beach to walk on the ice. It seemed pretty solid, although we didn't go too far. The sun was redonk bright and even the lake was covered in snow. (e:paul) wasnt used to the wind so we moved over to Tiftt for a hike.

I can't wait until its warm.

On the way back we stopped to get things for (e:czarkasm)'s party. The Elmwood liquor store had this picture of Nicki Minaj that was super whitewashed. It was so weird.

Valentine's Day

l agree with (e:Terry) that Valentine's is just capitalist commercial garbage, allegedly for some dead Christian. But I've never gotten to do Valentines before. Last year I ate two bags of candy hearts with Sarah and celebrating with clearance candy.

This year there was still lots of candy, but with the two best guys I know. My mom even brought us over a heart shaped pizza. If thats Valentine's I'm alright with that.
