Part 2 e:New Years Eve 09

For those of you reading this my previous journal has pictures from new years eve also.

I can remember when I was a kid and we did the family New Years Eve thing sometimes that some times people would list their resolutions and that would be interesting. I think if people want to change then New Years is a good way to find a time and reason to do so, it is like starting a new. I really don't do that because I know I won't follow them anyways. Then there are people who also reflect back on the year they had with highlights and lowlights and that is I think a better way for those people who are lucky enough to be able to do that. This year for me has been a year with some changes towards the end of it but not because of me directly because of my sis having a kid and then my cousin has a kid also now but again I don't think that changes my year. Yes I did meet some new people this year. Yes I went to movies that where different then the year before. Yes I loved watching the Olympics . But nothing Major happened that to me, I didn't go on any Major trips, wait that is wrong I went to My Cousins weeding in NC and that was fun, I forgot about that. I'm not saying I didn't have a good year, cause I think I did a lot of fun stuff. It is just that there isn't what would be thought of as a major event. The point I'm getting to is now that 2008 is over it is a good time to find a nice place and reflect over the last year and take time to really think about things. Then maybe think about what didn't happen that should have and see if you can make it happen. For me yes I did like the party last night and it was a lot of fun, but there is also a part of me that would have loved to go to Chicago and went to the winter classic this after noon. Lets forget that I wouldn't want to be out in the cold for hours but it is just the Idea of it.

I'm not sure where some of the Interesting ones start but they will be up and you may find them interesting. It is odd that none of that really crazy stuff happens to me (not sure if that is good or bad though).

I had a good New Years Eve and I hope everyone else did also, thanks (e:pmt) for hosting and letting me crash their. There where so many (e:peeps) that where great to see. Up top I mentioned that the winter classic was today. I can't say enough about it for it to be its own post. I watched the US broadcast and enjoyed myself and thought it was a good game. At first it looked like Chicago was going to destroy the Red Wings but they came back and the Red Wings won. It was fun to watch and looked pretty good on TV. There is a connection to last years game Conklin (sorry can't spell) Played for The Penguins in that game last year and Campell played for the Sabres, plus Kane who plays for the Black Hawks is from Buffalo (not sure if it is the city or just the area).

So the next event I'm going to is the Bandits game on Saturday, it is there Home Opener and they will be raising the Championship banner. Them winning the Championship (even though I don't play) was one of maybe the Highlight of last year not sure. 12 years is a long time and they have had there chances where you could say maybe the should have won the championship, well should isn't the right word where they could have and didn't so that was a great time. Other things that come to mind was (e:ladycroft) had a get together at Pearl St. Grill , Seeing fireworks and Jackdaw at the Marina, I think on Valentines day seeing as Summer Dies at Diablo + I think Soma followed that show, I forgot about the Fetish Show at Diablo and seeing those two lovely ladies eat each other out that was a first, Was it this Saint Patricks day I went to the Parade and then went to see Jackdaw at W, I liked that I got to celebrate my Birthday twice, I think I said the uncle thing and the way I had a Christmas weekend, Seeing Dethklok was pretty cool and so was that other concert I saw at that time, Wick'd was a great time and I got to talk to someone else who had read the book and explained how things where different. I guess my year was better then I thought thanks to anyone who read all of this and I hope this year gets better for me but I doubt it will, Happy New Year everyone!!!

NYE 08-09 at e:PMT's

First of all I hope everyone did something fun for New Years Eve, wherever or whoever you where with. I know I had a good time (just wasn't talkative for some reason). I'm glad (e:imk2) made it and her gift made for some interesting pictures and maybe even stuff I didn't see, I didn't see it so I don't know. It was nice to meet Rory and I glad he and (e:ladycroft) where there (yes they are both in pictures). I can't really name all the (e:peeps) who where there at some point it would get silly plus there where some people I didn't know, not sure If they where (e:peeps) or not. That being said there was a lot of interesting conversations going on to be enjoyed.

Something that I think I should explain is that most of my pictures are not posed they are what is the word, I can't think of it, but when you get people in their natural state. Yes sometimes expressions are odd because people talk or move. Also the way the pictures post I do put them up in order that I take them but when you upload multiple files they aren't displayed in that same order. Where you see the champagne was very close to the ball drop, (e:lilho) did a good job getting that together and getting the word to everyone about it coming up.

When doing a picture post it is sometime tough to know at what point you should cut it and let the rest of the pictures be in the next post. I think I will cut it here and end Part 1 by saying Hope everyone has a great 2009 and at the very least that they had a good time ending 2008.

X-mas Day 2 and 3

So on Saturday we went out to a friends house for a big gathering. It was a good time. I will admit it did seem like there where a ton of kids there though, don't think that was really true though. Well here is what my dinner was.

On Sunday I watched some football and then some of the relatives got together for Pizza at my mothers house, it was a good time. I will admit though all that family stuff is tiring and I'm feeling it now. Or maybe that is just readjusting to a very heavy work day after 4 days off. I'm looking forward to NYE at (e:PMT)'s assuming a can stay awake for the ball drop, ha.

The Spirit

First of all I see there has only been 4 blogs in the last 24 hours that is kinda scarry. I'm guessing that is because of not only the holiday but people have to work the next day. I know a lot of places are open. That being said I think a saw a bunch of hot ladies out and about at Target and that area around that plaza. With it being a day off for lots of people lots of people where out shopping. My point was trying to get at is thanks for all the people who are working today, I'm sure a lot of would rather be someplace else. The Movie i went to see was "The Spirit" it is based off a Frank Miller graphic novel I have never read. I will admit I'm no reveiwer because I find it tough to tell about how I like a movie with out giving stuff away. So I'm going to give stuff away. First of all Eva Mendas has sweet lovely amazing breats that you kinda see but not really. I'm sorry they should have shown all of her and made it R. I don't know how to explain the effect but this is true in a couple other places where it could have shown more. But then again maybe it would have been less artistic not sure really. Acting wise I think Scarlet Johansen was amazing or maybe it is just that she was so hot sometimes that can cloud a movie. Sam Jackson did a fine of job of acting, or maybe I'm just a fan of his. Plot wise with the love story and there being two love stories was pretty good. I like the idea that the hero and the viilian are made the same, and that the vilian was trying to live forever and be a god and in so doing so he created spirit (ok he brought him back to life as a new person)See it was part of the story but it wasn't the entire thing. I thought the action scenes where pretty cool all in all. One weird thing is the cats. The spirit had cats and everyonce and then he would fight and you would see this grey cat (very cute by the way) but see only we would see it, from how it looks it isn't like they would go hey we are trying to kill each other kill the cat and you kill him like in the crow. The part I really liked was the entire general feal of the movie. If you saw Sin City you know what I mean. Spirit talks about the city and how it calls to him and he can hear it (sorry can't explain it better go to the dam movie allready, HA) and he feels as if it is his. The other part that gives it such a feel is the animation and coloring. I wouldn't call it an animated movie at all. but there are parts that look that way and it fits. Like a sword goes through him and you see a drawn red sword and then he pulls it out and it look like a real sword covered in blood. Or someone gets shot up and and the person is in black and all the blood is white. Visualy it is an amazing film and for the visuales it is worth seeing it alone. There is a realy cool scene where Sam's character is dressed up as a Samurai that is just amazing to me. If you liked how some of Kill Bill and Sin city looked then you will like this. I give it 2 thumbs up or 4 out of 5 stars. I will admit since I never read it I can't rate this movie for fans of the book.

X-mas Day 1 Slumdog Millionaire

So today Christmas was nice, even though it doesn't feel like that day for some reason, even though I know it is. My sis and her BF came over with their daughter and we exchanged gifts and ate and did the more gift opening thing. Then later they had family to go see and me and my mother went to go visit some people and eat some more and then go out to the movies. Since it is a holiday you can't go see some funny movie with some crazy family that is Christmas Themed well you could but to me that seems more like something you watch at home, but maybe that is me. For thanksgiving we went to see "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas", It looks like on holidays the new thing to do is to see serious movies. I admit I had no say this time in what movie to see. So maybe it being serious wasn't planned it was just what others wanted to see. The Movie was called " Slumdog Millionaire ". Yes some of it was violent and some of it was Harsh (not sure if that is the right word), but it was pretty good. Yes there was a love story in there but it was kinda different in a way. With out giving to much away there is this kid (a slumdog) [ok young guy] who is on the Indian version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire he does pretty well on the show so the cops capture him and ask how he knows the questions (slumdogs shouldn't know the answers so it looks like he is cheating to them). As he reveals how he knew the answer to the question it tells another part of his life story. It is tough to Imagine someone having the type of life he had, it really is. From what the movie shows slumdogs are poor people who live in the slums, in his case he becomes and orphen. The one thing that took a bit to get used to was that some parts where in English and some where not, but it wasn't through subtitles when someone would talk it would show up in a box on the screen. I thought the movie was pretty good, oh yeah and after the story plays out the movie doesn't end there is like a dance scene or dance video I forget if there are credits on that scene or if they role after that. On Saturday the family is going out to a Christmas get together dinner thing and on Sunday I think we are going out to Springville to see some relatives but not sure about that yet so it will be a Christmas weekend. I want to go see a movie on Friday as well I'm hoping to see either "The Sprite" , that new Tom Cruise movie looks pretty good, or maybe "The Day the Earth Stood Still", who knows maybe if i wake up early I can catch an early showing of one or if I'm really lucky and the time works out two of those movies. Hope everyone had a great holiday and a great Holiday weekend.

Birthday part 2

So first of all for anyone that thanked me a Happy Birthday thanks. So today is my real birthday But yesterday I went out to dinner at Fridays and then went to the penguins game. The dinner and Penguins game where both pretty good. I just wish that who ever won (Penguins in this case) would have done so with a clear victory. In overtime the Penguins scored a goal but the stick looked like a high stick. To me the first replay it looked high for sure and no goal but on the second one it looked legal. I had a good time and the funny thing is my boss was at the game and in the same section as me.

I had a really good time and the ticket I bought was pretty good, or atleast to me it was. I was 14 rows up in pretty much center ice ara and it really makes following the game much better then being at one of the ends. I will admit that I wish I was doing something cool on my real birthday and that I could come up with a Part 3 but that isn't going to happen so..... But I did get to have some fun and shovel and I admit I have no idea where to put the snow anymore.



image

Then In the spirit of snow I guess I could put up a few more shots of the Snow the two of the College are from today, the other ones are from after the previous post of mine about the storm.

Well I forgot what my next point was, maybe it was the great time I had last night, it really was a great time. Oh yeah I'm not going to get into the Happy Holidays vs. Christmas debate but in case I don't get to say this on the site on the day or the eve since I'm working, I hope everyone has a great holiday. Oh and hopefully lots of (e:peeps) go do the same on New Years and do so by going to "The Party" and yes even the people who don't post that much or forgot about (e:strip). So Enjoy the holidays everyone and I hope that none of you where to bored by this and if you where then I doubt you are still reading be safe and stay warm.

Snow

First of all I will admit I have been thinking about trying out the old Pros and Cons Idea for some time and finally found a good topic to do it on the snow, we shall see how it works out. But 1st of all I missed Jeff Foxworthy last night I was tired oh well. Second if you are not tired of the snow here is a link to a story on Yahoo about the snow
. These pictures are not mine but are from Yahoo I think they are pretty interesting Is snow a regular thing there, I just think it rains a lot.





image

image

image

image

Here is the slideshow


THE SNOW (STORM)

PROS CONS

It is pretty Until it all gets nasty
Dogs love to play in it Someone has to take them out
keeps relatives together Keeps relatives together
Shoveling is good exercise Shoveling can kill (heart attack)
Keeps away panhandlers some one has to deal with them
good for pictures Can kill/destroy Camera
White Christmas Has to snow on Christmas day
Crazy Elmwooders vanish They Just Bother someone else
Skiing Paradise I have no way to get there
Snow boarding paradise Assuming one doesn't get stuck
can't get out sleep in Boss might fire you
Stay in with loved ones "The Shinning" Happens
The Pussies stay home tough to get places
The Casual fan stays home = ( Only the Die Hard fans show)
Plow Guys earn their money Have to shovel Again Dam
Good time to make fruit cake Drink to much and puke
Play in the snow get soaked and a little sick
Stay in listen to Christmas music It can be torture some times
Marathon Sex Another Kid to feed

As some of you might have noticed this isn't a normal list of things that are positive and other things that are negative. It is seeing something that is positive and that it has a Negative side also. I think life is often that way. For example if you go to the Galleria mall and get lucky as someone pulls out and you have to only walk 10 feet then what about the next 7 cars that can't find a spot. Or say you are walking down the street and find $50 well that is your lucky day but when that person who lost it goes to check out and doesn't have enough for the food in there house and there kids go hungry then they aren't so lucky. I need another good example but it will most likely be only an ok one. Here is a multiple teared one: On Friday I had the day off (good), but with all the snow I had to shovel a lot (bad) but it was good exercise (good) but I would rather have been watching movies or porn or something (bad), but if I wouldn't have been off then my mother would have been stuck in the house (bad) and after the hockey game or the next morning shoveling would have been very tough (bad). Hopefully I will in the future post more of these and maybe the humor side will be a little bit better we shall see. Hope what ever is left of this weekend is good for everyone. I have a feeling I will have to shovel some more later today. Assuming things work out the way they are supposed to Part 2 of the Birthday I am taking my self to the penguins game on Monday. Stay safe and warm.

4th time Birthday part 1

So fire fox and my computer and (e:strip) don't want to work together. So I had a great time at the sabres game that was a birthday gift. Since they don't want to work and every time it is so issue I give up if you care about it at all read it on my myspace page.

or just the pictures



Besides most of you would find the sablere boaring. One thing to mention tonight the Jeff Foxworhty roast is on comedy central , when it is that late at night is is usaly uncensored so it should be pretty good like the pam anderson was last night.

[b]EDIT: I'm going to try the my media part again and hope it doesn't freeze up again and see if I can add the pictures down below. [b]

How very odd now everything works fine. It is time to go get my pictures from Walgreens (not that I feel like doing it but I think I may need some snacks anyways). IN case I didn't say Part 2 will be on Monday when I go to see the Penguins. That reminds me on Jan 1st the Winter Classic takes Place in Chicago that would be really amazing to go to (no $$$ anyways) and there is a Buffalo Connection for those that like to keep your hockey local Patrick Kane who plays for the Blackhawks is from the Buffalo area. Well hope everyone has/had a great weekend.

Snow Day

First of all I'm off of work today because I have a good boss, so if you some how wind up reading this thanks. I was nice to sleep in today, it really was. Then once I got up I got to go out in the pretty snow. Yes I'll admit shoveling it isn't the fun, well ok some of it is fun but not to much. I think it looked pretty good out. Then a bit latter I went up to the bank. Now maybe it is just me but it seemed like it wasn't snowing as much on Elmwood but maybe it is just because more people where out. then later today (couple hours really) I will be heading out into the snow again, I'm going to the Sabres Vs. Kings game tonight. So I hoping to post pictures of both on Saturday, then on Monday I'm going to the Penguins game, that should be a lot of fun. Yes I want the Sabres to win both games and hope the play great in both games, but at least on Monday if the lose I like the other team also. Sorry there are no pictures of the (e:peep) holiday dinner. I had the energy and was going to come over here and post that I was going, however I was invited to a dinner at my mother house. I thought that i might have time to go to both, but the time slide by before I even knew it, I think dinner wound up being later here than I had thought. Well I hope everyone is able to enjoy the snow as long as it is here and has a great weekend.
