Sleeping In?

Well as some of you might know, (e:strip) is not my Only "social Networking site". (e:strip) isn't the same as okcupid, fubar, myspace, or facebook or even webshots. Yes all the sites I mentioned to have some aspects that are the same. Webshots added blogs to try and be like the others. Facebook added the drink apps to try and be like Fubar. Myspace added the updates to try and be like facebook. I like all the sites for different reasons and I hope they stay as being different from each other. Facebook is great for a quick online update, that is really what it is made for. One that I have used there a few times is:
"looking Forward to sleeping in" . Hey during the week with a day off that is a big deal.

But here is the thing. A lot of those statements don't really mean much other then to the person who posts it. Like what does sleeping in really mean. In my case maybe 3 hours more at the most. It implies like noonish. It implies under the covers out cold warm and toasty. But that isn't the case. What it means for me is that I wake up when my body is ready to instead of the alarm going off. It isn't that I'm in this huge bed and am as snug as a bug in a rug.

This is an example of how so much in life is relative. For example my wake up time is about 4:30 AM or sometimes about 5:30 am. So waking up at 8 is awesome. But for the 9-5 crowd 8am is when they wake up to go to work so to them that isn't sleeping in at all. But then sometimes I'm downtown (on a work day) and I see a truck backing into Rite Aid. So I wonder is who ever unloads that still there from like late last night or do they get up even earlier then I do. Then What about the truck driver. Has he been driving all Night? Is he local? Did he drive to Buffalo? If he is local what time did he get up?

Well I guess I just want to remind people that many things in life are relative. Hopefully I can sleep in a bit and hopefully it doesn't rain so I can enjoy the Italian Festival and maybe I'll go see up. In any event hope everyone has a nice weekend.

10,000th Image Kinda

Well Before I did the last Post It listed me as 23 Images away from 10,000 so I was going to make my first picture be the 10,000 but now it lists me as over it and I only did 22 pictures so not sure where I am at really. On my webshots page I have a lot more picture like 18 or 16,000 I forget. But (e:strip) is different in that it isn't a photo sharing site and also some images aren't pictures I took that are posted. Lets face it at some point I would have meet some (e:peep) out in person and that would have got me to go to a party. I'm guessing before then I was posting pictures, but lets face it with out looking at the stats I know (e:strip) events make up a good portion of the pictures I post here so for that here is the Kinda 10,000 Picture. Also thanks (e:ladycroft).

I tossed a couple pictures of the waterfront and the Aud in as well. It was cool to see a weeding party there. You could see they where taking pictures, again I assume this was after the weeding as opposed to before the weeding.

It was amazing how different the crowds where from day 1 with the rain and day 2. I'm sure after I left it even got more packed once it was nice on Saturday.

Taste of Buffalo 2

So I did try a few things today that I wanted to try. But before I get to that the crowd was insane today. I can't even begin to explain how long the line for tickets was. (don't have time to download the pictures today, plus I have to figure out the best way to post them).

Before my movie I went to Danny's again and tried the Medium size Beef on Weck Soup. It was pretty good.

Then it was onto something I didn't notice until I read the news on the taste of Buffalo this morning. Red Osier Has a Hot Roast Beef Sunday. It is hard to describe but wow was it tasty. It really was very good.

So I left for a bit and went to see Bruno at The Market Arcade or what ever they call it now. With out giving anything away it was wild, and Funny. It wasn't as funny as I thought it might but It was still pretty good. But I the other hand it was also funnier then I thought it might be. Some times with a movie like that they show you all the funny stuff on the previews. Yes it was very vulgar. I was surprised that they had stuff black Boxed out. Some of the stuff I'm glad was boxed out and some of the stuff I wish wasn't blacked boxed out. It would be interesting to see if they come out with a DVD Version that is unrated so you can see all that crazy stuff. But maybe not seeing it makes it funnier not sure about that? If the wild stuff in Borat you liked then you will like this.

After the movie I went back to The taste. It was so packed you could hardly move. Still got free stuff to drink though. I also talked to this Nice Blond from yesterday who was at the cars again. I hope she got to go get some food. It is weird because since they are the first place it was kinda like she was a greater but really wasn't.

the final thing I ate was 3 tickets from Just Pizza , The Bruscetta White Style Pizza was very good. Well that weekend sure went fast, it was a good time though.

Taste Of Buffalo Day 1

First of all I hope everyone who went and is still going to go has a great time. I was nice to run into Margaret, Nicole, Mike and Bill. When I first got there guessing about noon maybe a little bit sooner it was coming down pretty good, and you could tell it kept a lot of people away even just the threat. Yeah the Umbrella was kinda a pain but it was a good time.

First I saw these cool looking cars, Ford Fiesta's they aren't even out yet. Later on I found out (she was pretty cute also) that you can take them for a test drive, that is pretty cool.

I tried the Mandarin Chicken Pasta from the place called some thing like crankshift cafee, It was good quality but it was cold pasta not warm so I didn't like it.

Hesters's Pub and Grill I think had this really good Chicken and Sausage Gumbo.

Fruit20 essentials was giving away free samples near the fountain in the center. The stuff is pretty tasty and they gave me 2 full bottles so that was awesome not sure if they did that after the rain stopped.

Also near by there Fruit Simple. They make good stuff and where giving stuff away free. I saw some people with full bottles and not sure how they got them. The two flavors I tired where pretty good I think mixed berry and Pomegranate blueberry.

I really need a bag so I donated a dollar to stars of hope as (e:metalpeter) . I won a "The Taking of Pelham 123" shirt, I never did get to go see it but I wanted to, plus I got a bag to hold all my stuff in.

Still in center Vitamin Water free Samples, tasty stuff.

Giacobbis Had a good Buffalo Wing burger. I had no idea what to expect it was a Cheese Burger with some kind of sauce it was pretty tasty.

The Oreo Milkshake got me filled up (larger size) from Clarence Center Coffee co. & Cafee. It was good to.

I got the small portion of Buffalo Chicken Wing Soup and want to try the Beef on Weck Soup from Danny's Restaurant I thought the orange colored stuff was good so now I have something else to try on sunday.

At The Como I had the Broccoli Parmesan I figured I would try it and it was good.

Not sure of the name of the place but I had a small portion $1.50 size of the texas Chili again I was kinda full still, it was good.

Anderson's has a nice Loganberry Ice. For 3 tickets you can't expect to much. I like it but what I mean is if it was prepackaged it would come off better. The best thing to do is not eat it right away let it melt a bit.

I tried Mobay's Jerk Chicken it was one Piece of tasty chicken on rice, I thought I saw someone else with two pieces but maybe that was a different thing, not sure.

Torches had a pretty good idea in sending its Ladies out walking with skimpy little out fits on or maybe it was their idea. The one problem though is that the way their signs where set up was if anyone was in line you couldn't tell what they where selling. That being said next door having that trophy and that cool motorcycle with the stuffed pig on it was a great idea.

Is it me or does Every Year Jack Astors have a bunch of really nice ladies working. I sometimes wonder if they do special recruitment for the festivals. This is often true of JP Bullfeathers also but they are local so I kinda doubt it.

If you don't want to eat to much it does make good people watching just be careful how you walk I some how pissed off some dude he seemed a bit nuts.

I did have a couple drinks, One must get a couple of those collectable cups. Generally speaking each type of drink comes in a different color. You have to give props to people (assuming they are all theirs) that have that huge stack of cups inside of cups and all kinds of colors. When I left and with the weather I didn't see to much of that but I'm sure I'll see some people who spend around $40 on beer well I don't know how much it really costs so.....

Before I went home I went to look at the AUD at first you think that it is all gone. When you look closer you can see it isn't all gone. there is a bunch of ruble on top of what looks like a garage. Then there is also some of those I call them step areas. If you haven't seen it in some time take a few minutes to go check it out.

Hope the rest of everyone's weekend is good.

Odd Summer

So Saturday and Sunday

Not sure if that will work so if it doesn't it is the Taste of Buffalo. I hope the weather is nice and it will be lots of fun. Well that assumes that people understand that you have to walk and you can't stand still in a group talking, move someplace, I don't want to be in a LA or NYC traffic Jam, stand still only in A Mother fucking Line, ass munch.

Ok so now that I got that out of the way I need to talk about why summer has been weird.
1. Haven't been to a TATS yet. Part of that is last year they changed the time and that was a bummer plus I'm often tired pretty good by thursdays and I don't know any of the bands.
2. So far the weather has been the hottest before the summer started. Plus the weather seems odd for some reason.


  • 3*** My perspective is different. I think that how I view the summer has been altered a bit. Yes I love the summer and never want it to leave and all ways look forward to it, and don't want it to end. But this year I have things to look forward to after the summer and even though I don't know what will happen I think that changes how one looks at things. Hey I still want the summer to last a long time but at the same time this future things you still look forward to them.
A. In September Music Is Art (please no rain this year at the Knox)
B. Timika's Weeding
C. Also in October WWE Monday Night Raw (3rd Row someplace)
D. Metallica (I don't need to travel, right here in Buffalo)
E. My Niece Maya turns one (right around the Metallica show) do they make Baby Metallica Gear?

Well Hope everyone enjoys the Taste of Buffalo and if you see me there maybe I can take a quick picture of you. Also there is music and stuff there also a few bands some of you may know.

4th Eve

First of all thanks to (e:vincent), (e:Drew) and (e:Janelle) it was a good time at the game and BPO and fireworks. Sorry (e:Mrmike) couldn't make it, but from his post it sounded like he and the son had a better time then they would have had there.

So the Bisons lost, what a shock, not really. But the game was still a lot of fun and so was the company. Hopefully pictures will be posted on Monday sometime. Game wise I think the pictures will be good. Fireworks wise I think the same will hold true. But stuff on the field it is just to dark things also came out blurry. Bob from Seasme Street was there. I figured he would do much but he did a lot. He sang songs and Narrated stuff and was a big part of the BPO show. It was a really good time watching the fireworks and BPO.

Then After that Club Diablo and The Tap Room where a good time. Not sure what the band was called but had a few and relaxed. Mike that was a good idea. At Diablo saw some Bettie Paige's if you want to see the pictures of the Stripteasers there are all ready some pictures up on Club Diablo's myspace page. All in all it was a great time thanks to everyone and hope everyone has a great weekend. I will be going downtown at some point for the 4th and to check out the AUD and get some pictures.
