Thanksgiving Tidings/Night Before Fun

First of all I want to say Happy Belated Thanksgiving to everyone. I hope everyone else ate as much food and had as much fun as I did. I really think this was the first year in memory that my family was relatively calm and stress free for the whole day. My parents let me sleep in til like 1130 and dind't really make me do much to set up excpet go pick up my brother. And even when he wasn't ready for like another hour they still were ok with that. Just everything was calm and cool, which if you know my family I belive the last time we went more than ten minutes without yelling was circa 1992, maybe earlier. Eh, we're Italian, yelling is what we do! We tried to play family feud and it didn't' go so well, (e:terry) is a terrible game leader and it was much more complicated than you would think. Later we moved on to password which was fun and we found out my mom knew all about blunts. WHo woulda thought?

Wednesday night was a lot of fun. Everyone was back in town, except (e:mk). We went to Frizzy's and were gonna see where we were going to go from there but ended up staying there the whole night. It was lots of fun seeing everyone again all together and having fun. It was nice to catch up with everyone. Ok i pretty much knew everything about eveyrone but it was nice to hear them tell each other. Guest appearances were made by (e:amanda) and her b/f and Laura and other fun peeps. erock perhaps? Thanks to Jill for being my DD...

Well the weekend has arrived, let the fun continue

Oh and I almost forgot, i got to see my cousin's new baby Sylvia who was so freakin cute!!! Babies are nice, i want

First of all I want to say thanks to all the people who commented on my last journal. ALas, I think i was overreacting to a situation, as those of you who know me, know I often do. I still don't know how the situation will turn out but really it wasn't nearly as drastic as I made it out to be.

I SERIOUSLY CANNOT WAIT UNTIL 6:20 pm tomorow night when my favoritest (e:beast) TERES COMES BACK TO THE B-LO!! I NEED HER PRESENCE MAJORLY!!!

On that note, Wednesday night we are going out (as is everyoen else in the world right cuz it is the night before thanksgiving?) but we are going out to celebrate Teres coming back. A welcome back party of sotrs with the other thousands of poeple out wednesday. Everyone should join in the festivities. When i know where we are going , I will post it there. So stay tuned...

How Could I Forget?

Ooops how did I let myself forget for the last few days that I am completely undesirable. How many times will I make the same stupid mistakes?

Good Few Days

So after a crazy beginning of the week with more 14 hour work days and lots of craziness and my car breaking and nothing fun the week greatly improved on Wednesday. Me and (e:amanda) who I haven't seen in waaay too long b/c she is always studying and working went out for coffee and caught up on everything going on in our lives. And it snowed that night so we went on our first snow walk which was fun. Well it as fun while we walked in one direction and the wind was to our back but once we turned around it got a little bit crazy cold and icy in our face, especially since we were wearing like spring jackets and no kind of cold weather protection but it was still fun. The first snow is always so fun. Then (e:lilho) and (e:paul) called and we decided to go to a going away party for France (a German exchange student who is living in Robin's apt while Robin is in Germany , not France the country embroiled in riots).

I was not going to go cuz it was snowy and I had my mom's car and was afraid of crashing it but I decided eh I should. I'm so glad I decided to go. After me and (e:lilho) doing our normal stay in a corner and alienate ourselves from everyone there by clinging to each other and ignoring other people (why do I always cause that effect on who I am with?) I actually ended up talking to some people and having fun. One fun person in particular who I saw again on Thursday. So I'm glad I went.

Then on Friday (e:jill) and my other friend Jen both got jobs so that means they will have money again soon and we can start going out and doing more things again. And to top it all off (e:mk) decided to come up from Fredonia for the weekend and so we hung out last night after what has been way too long of not hanging out (ok maybe like a few weeks) but it felt like foreva! So hopefully this great weekend continues for the next few days.

AND THEN MY LOVELY TERES COMES BACK FROM 6 MONTHS IN SCOTTLAND ON TUESDAY and everyone else comes back from school too and we are gonna party like we are 16 again (well we didn't party that much at 16 haha but it will be fun)

basically every one of my friends being back + the night before thanksgiving + copious amounts of alcohol = amazingness!!! I can't wait!

I'm A Medicare Celebutante

So two people asked me for my autograph today! So as many of you know I have been doing presentations all over Western New York at senior centers, senior apts, church groups, bingo games, you name it, anywhere seniors hang out I have been talking about the new Medicare Prescription Coverage and trying to answer people's questions. Well today at the one apartment building the people really loved me and all told me how great I was afterwards and that all I loved me and two of the old ladies, I belive one said she was 95 asked me for my autograph. One said "i really think you are going to be someone someday, and I want to have your autograph" or something like that. Alzheimers? maybe...but it still felt good

It's Been A While

Ok by a while I mean it has prolly been a few days, but for me that is a long time not to post. I am becoming an old man. I honestly read in bed and go to bed by like midnight every weeknight. Well this week I did. I am trying to get myslef into a routine so I am not so tired all the time. Like sleep more during the week and then just enjoy the weekends extra more instead of just haphazardly staying up all the time and then being exhausted all the time. I am also trying to wake up even earlier before work so I can eat breakfeast and exercise. I've gotten upo early enough to eat a quickb reakfeast or at least grab something to go but haven't mastered waking up early enough to exercise in the morning yet. Hmm how weird that I found time to eat more but not to work out. Other than that life has been pretty good....too much work though....last night we watched Wizard of Oz and The WEdding Singer. THose are some great movies I haven't seen in a really long time. It was at a poker game night but me, jill and jeff decided not to play poker and watch tv/movies instead. It was fun....tonight lilho graduation celebration and maybe Beatlemania though I wish beatlemania was not out in east jehungaville and so I could do both the party and the beatlemania more easily!

Hootie Mania

So yesterday was mine and (e:jill)'s lucky day! I am at work when what does my boss Patty say to me, those magic words every person is dying to hear "do you want free tickets to go see Hootie and the Blowfish tonight?" After squealing with delight and rolling on the ground, I immediately called Jill and got the confirmation that she too was up for this night of excitement!!! Ok so really we were never the biggest Hootie fans but it sounded like it could be fun. We pumped ourselves up by listneing to their tape on the way to the show. Well needless to say afterwards I felt terribly sorry for both Hootie and the Blowfish. First of all there were about 200, maybe 300 people tops. And from the looks of it maybe 20 people actually paid for their tickets. I decided to look up info on Hootie and there album, Cracked Rear View circa 1994 is the 8th highest selling album of all time. And now they play to a crowd of 200 free fans in Buffalo. Oh wait I almost forgot to mention where they played....

The Statler Golden Ballroom. It was so random. It was carpeted and had fancy chandaliers and there was Hootie trying to rock out. It was completely odd. Though me and Jill did get within a foot of touching the Hoot himself because they walked in right next to where we were standing (along the side of the room whrere you and all the other people that were not really interested were sitting).

Oh and the opening. What an opening. Good old Darius himself quoted some bible passage about like a wrath down on earth but replaced the word God or devil or whatever it said in the bible with Hootie and the Blowfish. It was classic!!!!

Needless to say I got some kind of sickness last night threw up and we left and i was sick for the rest of the night. I like to think it was because of my deep compassion for how far Hootie has fallen but I think it might have been bad tuna.

Blind Date: Uncensored

So I wish this post was about a crazy blind date I went on and you could have the behind the scenes uncensored look at it but alas it is about the video me, (e:jill) and jen rented tonight. We rented Blind Date: Uncnesored: Dates from Hell and Freaks and Weirdos. Frankly, it was dissappointing. You don't know how long we have waited to rent it because it is always out of stock. It was really a let down. I would say most of the situations were really no worse or crazier than the ones that make it on tv. Actually I had seen some of the footage on tv. That is ridiculous. Basically it was just the same as tv with a few f words thrown in. I'm not saying it wasn't entertaining just not nearly as good as I had hoped.

Today I had to run an Eckerd booth for a health fair at the JCC on Delaware in Buffalo. Our intern Bonnie went with me thank god because otherwise it would have been terribly awfully boring. I believe from 9-2 we had about umm like 30 people tops and mostly those were people from the other booths who were also bored and wandered over to us. Thankfully me and Bonnie can entertain ourselves but it still dragged by sooo slow. I can't wait for all this Medicare stuff to be over. Unfortunately some lady asked for our information cuz she is running a few health fairs in the next couple months and wants us there. I JUST WANT IT TO BE OVER!!!

P.S. Ladycroft I am not mad at you. Ditto for you Paul. I was just mad last night and overly tired!!
P.P.S. Paul, I don't really hope that you die, no matter what I texted you yesterday

Out On The Town

Last night me and a few (e:strip)pers, namely (e:tina), (e:lilho), (e:terry), (e:flacidness) went out to Soundlab to hear some DJ. It was 13 bucks and like all he did was play songs that are not even that uncommon straight out. Like no mixing or doing whatever it is that DJ's do. It was a lot of fun but not worth $13. Maybe $5 but it was still fun. We saw (e:rachel) there which is always a good time! Then after an argument about who is most in desperate need of a date, we went to Essex St. Pub. The hotness that is (e:tina) and (e:lilho) were adored by many men and left men drooling in their tracks. It must be hard for them to be so IRRESISTABLE! It would be better if i had a picture here for everyone to adore but alas I have none....maybe I'll find one of them and post it later. I on the other hand realized I am attracted to almost noone which I forsee in a problem in me trying to date...

Roll Bounce

First of all , I haven't written since the Halloween party so here is my update on that. It was a lot of fun. I think the jello shots i made really spiced things up even if the cherry ones tasted like cough syrup. I know spiced things up/made me people vomit is a thin line but I think we mostly stayed on the right side of that line. Too bad they ran out so fast ( i guess that is what happens whne me and and Paul have like 10 each at the beginning).

I wasn't thrilled with my costume. I liked it but it didn't come out as good as I had hoped. I enjoyed everyone else who was dressed up, particularly (e:ladycroft)'s flashlight arm.

Of course we all know I don't really know how fun the party was until my pictures are developed. Though judging from others peoples pictures I did nothing that embarassing. How crazy would that be if I didn't embarass myself in any way? My camera battery died after only 16 pics so I have to finsih the roll still as I have the old fashioned non-digital type of machine!

Last night me and Jill went to see ROllBounce. Ok we didn't expect much from it, not nearly as much as the 40 year old man who went to see it alone must have expected. ANywho, it was so bad. I thought ti was going to be about rollerskating dynamos and fun routines but ended up being very dramatic. I blame Nick Cannon. Drumline was the same way, remember (e:mk). We thought it would be fun and have fun cheerleaders and marching bands ala Bring It On but instead it was filled with slow moving drama. You know what me and (e:jill) could not stop thinking about during ROll Bounce, that some movies, make that many movies get rejected and never get made....yet shomehow RollBounce made it through the cracks...ahh lil bowow
