Italian Pasted Post

These are some thoughts kinda joking around but kinda serious from the other website I'm on ... Maybe these thoughts are because of the Italian Festival that has some company name in front of it that use to be Sorento I think .......

If anyone reads this ? Hope It doesn't offend but with The Italian Festival (Think I'll go Saturday) I'm not but I've wondered if I have some Italian in me and here is why I don't like Corned Beef yuck nor cabbage now granted I don't like Ricotta or Cream cheese ( No Cannoli or calzones or macaroni salad ) but other then that I love Noodles and Sauce (Ok maybe Olive Garden Italian cause I love all the great bottled sauces HA)(Michellinas or what ever makes so decent ones sometimes lunch all week) , oh and Pizza (all kinds including Italian White, Old World sauce & Sicilian ) but who doesn't HA ... But some how Never watched any of The Godfather movies (have on tape) but all sorts of "Mob Movies" or "Crime Movies" Oh but wait maybe it is just that I grew up on the west side Yeah that makes more sense cause I couldn't tell you what Gelato is But I'll just add on line I've seen a bunch of amazing pictures and Italy looks amazing

The Sopranos I didn't mention but included could be seen as someone just liking the parts of the culture they know about ... That reminds me I like (cause they are in those movies guessing) like the crooners and think most Irish music is I won't say bad not my thing unless they Rock or Punk it up......

Being from Buffalo I know this is bad but with the fact that it might rain I'm tempted to just skip Italian Festival and go find a Pizza Hut .... When I was a kid they sold Noodles That being said I'm biased I love the taste of Yum Brands Sobe (Miss those glass bottles ) , Pepsi and others like Dew and Kickstart , Lays brands yes doritos and fritos , KFC (Don't eat there any more the smell alone tastes great) and Taco Bell But I think I'll still go and hope to not get wet I think .

But there are some good movies also but I'll go and hopefully do a mobile post and see weather wise what to do once there ..... Who knows maybe I'll just get some deep fried stuff :) That reminds me someone at work says The Fair is going to have Bacon Flavored Lemonade it sounds so gross but I would have to try it right... We shall see but at the end of the day I think in Buffalo we do get a lot of parts of different cultures noodles are starch so maybe that is like how I like Potatoes ????

4th Of July

I admit I'm behind but I do like reading (e:strip) and I ment to post on like Saturday about the Canalside first some youtube videos and what I thought of it .......



one Video that is ....

I have to admit Canalside did bother me some .... I walk in and it turns out you had to use tickets but the place that sells them only had the list of beer so I would have to look at every place decide then get coupons or what ever and they look huge also large sheets the size of like a tablet or maybe even a laptop but that is just me ????

So then I go to Clinton's Dish and they didn't have any burgers ... But I tried what they called a Buffalo Chicken Philly wow it was so tasty really was good ....... So I didn't know how to post Mobile yet so I'll just post some pics from the other camera :)

Not sure if Lance Diamond and Flag Ceremony Translate kinda have to be there but .......

Happy 4th Of July

So Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy 4th Of July

Hope they have a great holiday .... I'm going to the Bisons game with the BPO and it will be fun and maybe CanalSide on Friday I think I will ... One of these years I need to plan it out.... Cause I would love to go to NYC and go to Connie (that can't be right is it really Conney ) Island and go see the eating contests and watch the fireworks from some place where you can see the statue of Liberty but knowing me it may never happen...

I Know I've been out of the habit of coming here but I did get mostly caught up the one day on the bus on my iphone but that is a different journal some good things some bad... One thing I need to do is try and mobile post from it even if just a picture here... It has the apps where you can mobile post but I can't remember if estrip if there is one... Some day I need to play around with it...

Hope everyone has a great holiday and great weekend as well....

Canada , Tortonto Blue Jays

So Back for Mother's Day my mother wanted to go to a BlueJays game Picked out tickets when we where both free... Of course Had no idea how work would effect the holiday in the past we had to work the Saturday after the holiday weekend with losing a day and how stuff falls ..... And then about a week after that date hit me oh Pride .... So with an early wake up couldn't really go out the night before either so.....

Some how with construction we got sent off the QEW how my mother got on 3 I have no idea ?? I didn't get many good pics car was to fast by the time you see a house but there is some amazing houses and land .....

So even with leaving early we lost time and wound up late.... Missed like first inning argh... I wanted to be early they where giving away hats for country day.... Plus there was so much traffic they had some of the way into town shut down that made things more confusing for some run maybe a marathon ? and so much traffic .... but then also it is confusing cause I don't drive so I don't know where the parking is and there is construction and it was a bit stressful ......

It was kinda shocking how many other people where out side and picking up tickets I assume for that game ........

image
image
image
image
image
image
image
image
image

The BlueJays won but the game flew by really quick and yes Toronto and Major League Baseball is expensive but I didn't get a lot to eat so.....

So Then post event looking for a great place to eat close didn't really happen... But on the way Out I said we need to go to the left my mother went to the right.... Now again and this is the problem is I told her that the water and high way is behind us ... But not so easy to get back and I also since I don't drive don't know if there is another way out of Toronto or once back that way where one gets on is there any where else to get on? Now my pictures I couldn't get them you see and then its to late... But there are these amazing houses near High Park that are like raised and people walk up steps to them.... There are also a lot of cool mural aka Tagging not sure if they where projects and sponsored or legit street art but there where some under bridges or is that over passes but the photos I did get and with directions a couple of times it was back to Buffalo ......

In Person all the steam or smoke is pretty well seen not sure if it translates here or what this place is ....
image
image

Yes the getting there late and not being in the seat for like anthems and all that stuff and all the traffic was a bit stressful but it was still a fun time the Draw back (And I think this would be true of going there for a Bills game also) is if you are only going for the Baseball like we did and we have done in the past the time to and back is longer then the game ..... but it was still nice and it was a great day ..... Just wish it worked out better ......

Beauty And the Beast

So a Week ago the Bandits lost and are in the playoffs playing tonight in Toronto .... Might have started by time I post this.... Them losing and being on a losing streak I didn't feel like posting any photos..... but in the playoffs the slate is wiped clean you never know.... But not knowing what and where and when they where going to play made me not really be able to get tickets to Beauty and The Beast , At sheas....

That being said I'll get back to that... I hope everyone Enjoys Pride this year ... For mother's day I got tickets to go to a Blue Jays came tuns out it is June 1st I didn't realize last years Parade was so Surreal maybe the word is Epic I hope everyone enjoys it ...... As I do the holiday thing There was what ever Mayday is ? , Sunday is May The 4th Be with you aka Star Wars day ? I'M a fan but it is a normal Sunday to me :) , Monday is Cinco De Mayo but with work on Tuesday that I'm leaving early so I can go to Wrestling I can't party and work clothes I don't like to where to Cantina Loco but maybe tacos to go from Jim's doubt it but whom knows.....

Back to Beauty and The Beast.... Granted the story isn't only a Disney one but the musical is their version of it... I feel silly writing that a musical is different then a movie (unless the movie is the musical filmed on stage they do make those) ... I don't know how the make decisions on this type of stuff... But I think the good Musicals get that it is different and don't try to be the Movie , But they have to keep the story of course... For those who have seen the movie it is so Iconic (might not be the right word) but the singing and animation are so good [to me at least] that at points the musical isn't as good as the movie... But it is still very good and funny in a lot of places and very good... To Compare it to the movie isn't fair of course I really enjoyed it a lot .... Yes it could be tough with lots of young kids there but it wasn't to bad....

The Photos I took are from around the Downtown Area mostly .... I don't agree with tearing that building down and putting up a nice new one... But the difference so huge yeah kinda have to be there.....

Canada and the Falls

So I can admit I almost didn't go to falls yesterday there is some stress with that.. Will they let me in and will I get back in and again almost didn't go.... With the new ID I want to make sure I can get in before I try to go some place like Toronto.... Plus if my mom wants can go to a Blue Jays game just to go.... So my goal or is that goals of getting into Canada and Getting back into US I got those done... Yes even the questions did make me nervous and with the enhanced ID it did take a few minutes and seemed longer then people with passports but maybe they don't like how I look.... Plus I could go for fun at some point also..... But I didn't make it to any of the cool or chain places on either side..... It takes me time to get out of the house on the weekend as I wake up and get ready ..... Then I just felt like getting home... Just incase I couldn't finish the food or it hurt ......

Some other notes are that it took a long time at both boarders ... I think there where groups there... I did see some cheerleaders Some of them held up a pyramid and then took a picture... Also there is construction going on and still the winter season kinda yes still parts are frozen .... I did see a couple of the Asian Model look some people did the take the picture of them Jumping in air it was fun ..... Now to just figure out how many pictures are enough and how many would be to many .........

Sure the pictures aren't in exactly the order or right order hope it was about the right amount... I'd like to go back to the falls for fun .... I have never been to any of the strip clubs there ... and there is other fun stuff to do also I'm sure not sure if the WWE store is there.....

I forgot to mention that it felt odd catching the 40 Bus I use to catch it all the time like every day for work and that felt a little different... It has been so long since I've been to Canada (Since I couldn't get in or back into USA is maybe more correct) and not sure how longs since falls when I took pictures on maid of the mist... I would like to check out the boats on canada side and try maid of mist again.... I'm guessing it won't happens but who knows.....
