Taste of Buffalo

Yummy Yummy in my Tummy. So i basically went to the Taste of Buffalo twice in like 3 hours but the second time I didn't eat nearly as much, so that's ok, right? Hmm some of my favorites were fried tortellini and a portobello mushroom salad. How many of you have ever just eaten salsa with a spoon? Cuz according to the Tops booth that was a good idea, but I think the lack of a nacho made it very unappetizing. I spilled a tuna kabob on my shirt in a cool m-like zorro-like zigzag. And Chamille told me I should name my soap opera M and have that squiggle be the symbol and then can have this cool opening. Or make it my signature. Both great ideas!

This biggest dissappointment ever though was the lack of bacon wrapped shrimp which really make the entire event for me. Actually there was an overall shortage of bacon products but I htink I hit them all (which was only 2). A wine slushy party ensued at PMTs afterwards and I think I had a few too many for my own good or sanity. Silly drinks make me say silly things.

The Taste of Buffalo also gave me a nice farmers tan just in time for Florida. Me and Teres leave for Florida in two days and it is weird because I don't feel like I'm leaving and it is so soon. I hope it will be fun but the weather predicts rain for most of the trip, but the weatherpeople are wrong a lot right?

So Little Time

Ok, PMT came home a day early and so I am back living at home. I definetely need to get an apartment....soon. It is just so pleasant and nice to not hear screaming and arguing all day long and be forced to do things whenever it is convenient for others all day long. I don't know, I probably won't knowing my lack of motivation but I really want one.

Lately I have been getting crushes like they are going out of style. It is in a very fifth grade kind of why, like I jsut found out cooties aren't real or something. I don't know it is odd but fun...add another one to the list.

Dance Party

First off the fireworks were not in Kenmore tonight, I believe they are tomorrow now instead.

Secondly, I know that last night I threatened everyone that if they didn't go to the dance party at the Mohawk I would kick them off the site, but low and behold I did not end up going. I don't know I was just in a bad mood today kinda and you know how sometimes when you are not happy you just need to be more unhappy before it can better. I was not in the mood to see everyone having fun and hooking up and being hit on. I think the extreme pleasure of others would have just made me angrier. Which was today the official "walk with your b/f/g/f and kiss as soon as Mike walks by you day"? Cuz it felt like it. I think the idea that one of my friends is getting married in like two months and I haven't had a serious date in almost forever is part of what is bothering me lately. I don't want to end up being 80 and alone. Before for years none of my friends really dated that much or that seriously, but now its all changing fast and I am falling fast behind the learning curve and will soon be left behind in their fast paced coupled off world. Like seriuosly everyone just began to pair off with everyone they meet and I am silly old Mike who doesn't. I know it is partially my own fault as I don't try very hard but it doesn't make it feel any better.

I also need to learn when to take a hint I think. I don't know why I keep trying and trying. (e:Maureen) was talking about it the other day how she doesn't understand why some people keep trying and trying to contact her when she obviously puts in no effort. And I think some people enjoy the challenge of getting through to those people. Or some people just have that kind of personality that you just want to be around even if it involves being rejected many a times. Not like in a stalkerish way but in a ok I have to realize they don't want to talk to me/be better friends kinda way and stop bugging them. But sometimes it ends up being worth it. I don't know I am babbling, maybe more on this later.

Fireworks in Kenmore

Heading over to Jill's parents house to watch the fireworks for Kenmore Days from their roof. I hope they can live up to last years where the coverband played songs such as It's Raining Men, She Bangs, and Man I feel Like A Woman including people in the audience along with them. I believe It's Raining Men was the big finale to the show with fourteen year old boys singing. Interesting it was. I hope they keep the same performers this year, for much more entertainment.

I hope they don't try to make it all classy just because the Vietnam Wall Memorial is in Kenmore coinciding with the carnival. Cuz that is the classy kind of place we are. They thought "oh what does our carnival featuring greasy foods and kiddie rides need?" and someone probably jokingly said "we need a traveling war veterans memorial to put in next to the game where you have to pop the balloons for posters, we have some free space there anyway" and crazily enough someone picked up on it and now the memorial is part of the carnival although tastefully separated by about 30 feet.

One last Update

Raspbery vodka and winde blenders tonight at the apartment (567) stop by!!! OK I have officially updated about 7 billion times today. So some peeps are heading over to the apartment, namely (e:jill) and (e:teres) (beast) and possbily some diana, matt, maureen, and andrew, and some others, anyone who wants to but we'll see. Maybe we'll head down to the Pink since it appears that is the official Thursday night estrip hangout lately. We'll see what happens... a lot of pressure. Fun things happen at this house but can they happen without the PMT?

Vodka and Ice Tea

So I returned the beer bottles that were left here and got about 12 dollars for it (that's a lot of bottles) so with that money I decided to treat myself to a bottle of raspberry vodka. So very tasty Now I'm sitting here drinking it mixed with iced tea wishing it was sunny out and I could lay out on the porch and read. I should probably share as I shouldn't drink the whole 1.75 L myself right? I think me, (E:jill), (e:teres) are going out tonight, maybe the pink?

Did you try Call4Action at Channel 4? They deal with liek business disputes and stuff and I think like landlord issues too. My mom has volunteered there for years, maybe they can help you.

Cute Cute Tortoise

So I took the tortoise outside in the backyard for a little while today but it might be a little cold cuz it is shady so we didn't stay out too long. But he did the cutest thing ever, there was this like dead flower/plant on the ground and he kept trying to eat but would hate it and like spit it out, but then the next time he walked by it he would try and eat it again, like over and over. Ok, that didn't sound so cute but it was, and entertaining.

The Bugs Are Winning

Well the bugs are definetely winning the battle for this apartment. A few flies were trapped by the fly paper but not many and there are just lots of bugs or just more than I am used to. And the freshwater fish tank is starting to look a little not so good.

I went for a walk tonight with Jill, MK and Chamille tonight and it was fun and refreshing. We walked some streets off of Allen that I had never been to before and there were some really neat houses around there.

Welcome Chriddy, I'm glad you finally started a journal and Anne if you read this just try and see if you can sign in and post even though you did not get a confirmation email.

Me and Teres need to find a place to stay in Tampa considering we are leaving in one week from tomorrow. I am starting to get a little nervous but we most likely will make our plans tomorrow. Speaking of which tomorrow and Friday I have off so I hope to see some people and have some fun. Is it wrong to start drinking alone at like 11 AM when i wake up? We'll see what happens but I'm ready for the two days off.

Sometimes the simplest things are best

Last night after work (which was surprisingly enjoyable) I stopped by my parents to help them with something on their computer and then came back here to the apartment. It is so nice being able to leave there, like not that I hate it there, I enjoy it but it is nice to be there and then be able to leave. I think this little one week of having an apartment is going to make me get one for good, I'm not sure.

Chris stopped by last night for a little while which was nice. I like having people just be able to stop by. Unexpected visitors can be good but they can also be bad I suppose. After he left I ran to Wegmans with Teres and JIll to pick up some grocery essentials like bagels, goldfish, pretzels, strawberries and a few other things. Then when I got home I crashed and fell asleep immideiately. I was going to read a little bit but instead fell asleep within about two minutes and woke up this morning around 830 or 9 but stayed in an awake/not awake existince and didn't actually get up and out of bed til 10. It was nice, I needed it due to the lack of sleep lately.

All in all I had a good day. Work, Chris, Wegmans all were part of the relaxing day I needed. Sometimes the simplest things with the right people can be the best.
