word yatze

We had a delicious easter lunch at my cousins husband parents house. Then we sat in the sun and played bocce. My father is joining the italian (pronounced mafia) league in niagara falls.

Then we came in to play word yatzee. I think I hate word yatze but not as much as monopoly.

This poster from the irish classical theatre poster looks a lot like me.

Palm Sunday Tastes Good

We had such a tasty day at my Mother's House. Palm Sunday is starting to rival easter for extravagance. Every holiday at my Mother's is a two meat meal. This time is was a ham and lamb holiday.

image

She even managed to make (e:matthew) a completely wheat free cake that used ground up hazelnuts instead of flour.

Yummy Ham
image

Tasty Lamb
image

These omlets have 7 eggs each

This doesn't even count the six tons of candy we ate while playign Buffalo Monopoly. I was losing really bad and tried to forfeit my taking (e:matthew) and myself onto (e:mike)'s Niagara Square $2000 per landing rental property. I ended up just laming myself for a while and not being able to go out for like 5 more turns.

I am ready to have babies

No not my own babies, but sugar glider babies. They are so freakin cute. This one comes from a site called babyanimalz.com

image

I spent most of the day documenting new code libraries I have written at Roswell. Those of you that know me well know that I hate this more than anything in the world.

I have been thinking. I am going to try and finish my thesis in the next two weeks although it no longer has any real affect on my life. I just need closure. (e:shawnr) was right that I am just avoiding it because I have an emotional block from the whole not being a professor drama. This became very clear to me when I heard someone that sounded like someone from Canisius the other day and my bodies first response was a fight or flight response.

On another front I am gettign tougher everyday, although yesterday wasn't very indicative as i was exhausted after lifting. We were able to leg press 370lbs which is an insane amount of weight for me.

Whatever these are I really want one.

image

Speaking of nicknames (e:sbrugger,36) - I used to be called pinocinose because my nose was the same size as it is now, but I had a little kid head. They even used to tease my that my trombone case was my nose case.

I want to look have this guys body shape so bad. That is my ideal size and then I will quit, I have no interest in getting bigger than that.

image

Okay which is cuter the guy or this?

image

Definately, not this (GOOGLE - aye aye)

Who turned out the light

You may notice it is dark in this pic. Well, the electricity is all dead at work. I was in the middle of writing up what I did to a bunch of projects when it died. I feel bad for the guy next to me who was in the middle of programming.

image

It' scary to watch a lot of electrical things die at once. I wonder if my computer will be affected? Is this how the end of the world will begin.

From the sound of people talking, a bunch of people lost stuff. My question is, do we get to go home with no electricity?

It was funny to see how many people were concerned the elevators not working when there are stairs.

For some reason everyone else has left their cubicles for the hall. Maybe because they don't have internet access like I do.

Word is the water is off as well. The bathrooms are solid dark with no windows so everyone is chatting about the drama of what it like to use the bathroom in the dark with no water.

Luckily, it was noted, we have a hand sanitizer despener of the wall.

Then we had a technology free meeting with pen and paper. Fieldtrip time.

In the end I got to go home to work. Ironically, I hate being home an dworking. I would rather be anywhere else that is less distracting. Not to mention I have to walk back tonight because I have no way of reachign (e:trry) to tell him no to pick me up.

Coldstone Cremery

Today we headed over to the fish store to buy new stuff for (e:matthew)'s tank and to the sprint store to finaly fix (e:terry)'s phone after a month of it not working. While we were driving we saw that they have a coldstone cremery here now on Deleware near Kenmore Ave
. I used to go there all the time when I lived in flasgtaff. I have a feeling they are from Arizona because they were all over there.

The ice cream is so good but it's always too much even when I order the freaking small. Apparently, they do a dance and song thing when you tip them. I tried to recor dit on my phoen but I missed it. We tried retipping but apparently they only do one singing per visit. I would hate working at a store like that. When I was younger I worked at a local icecream store called parfait that was near Niagara Falls Blvd and Sheridan. It is now a cingular store.

It was kind of expensive. Three of us had icecream for $15.74.

Day in the life of a uebergeek

Went with (e:kara) over to artvoice to meet with Jamie Moses and (e:zobar) about some upcomming collaborations and stuff. It was fun geek talking it up with (e:zobar) as usual. It reminds me of talking with (e:jesse) but with much more clarity - and that's a good thing.

I am so borrowing his idea about putting content on an ipod to take it with you idea. Soon you will be able to download your entire journal and put it on your ipod. I think that would be a fun way to read it for some people. Of course, sans imagery. Maybe with the nano?

washington market

Today (e:enknot) and I headed over to wahington market We talked the nerdy talk and ate the delicious food. I had another chicken tuscan procuito, artichoke heart extravaganza.

The prices are so good in the butcher shop, you could get a new york strip steak for less than $4.oo.

Afterward I walked out and tried to open a jaguar. It looked the same as (e:enknot)'s car to me.

I want to rule a top level domain with a silicon fist.

I fixed all that surebert to be new and fantastic. Time to get drunk.

It was light out when I got out of work at 8PM, check the timestamp.

Getting Buff Buying Olive Oil

Olive oil is getting so freakin expensive. What is up with that?

The ministry announced earlier that the 2005 olive oil crop is down by about 35 per cent, or 350,000 tons, after little rain and severe cold spells and snow hurt Spain's olive trees last winter.

Spain is the world's biggest olive oil producer, accounting for a third of global supply.



Here is more information than you could ever want to know about olive oil. Here is even more details about what the waste is used for. Who would have ever thought one thing could make herbacide, fuel, and work breeding material.

Apparently, this happend befoe May 1996 and then afterwards we live in a period of low prices. I rememeber buying a gallon for only $8.

The shelves that used to be full of it at Wegman's are now full of nasty crisco liquid in detergent bottles.

image

Who thought that poeple would want their oil in detergent bottles. To me it makes it even more disgusting.

image

But Olive oil is really $22/gallon. I guess I can't use it for "everything" anymore. Look how tiny the olive oil section is.

image

On another front, Tom's Of Maine is now owned by Colgate. They test on animals, but Tom's of Maine doesn't so is that a conflict or what?
image

I am getting so much stronger but now I am addicted to being stronger. I want to be really strong and then start fighting.

image

image

On another front, surebert reached version 1.0 today. It eats forms really nice now.

A friend of Holly Johnson with a few que

Today I got the weirdest email

Hi Paul,
My name is Theresa Chambers, my brother is Matt, Holly Johnson's boyfriend. I'm taking a Women Studies class at UB and for a project I need to interview an active feminist,so Holly gave me your name. She told me that your pro-life and very active in Women's rights, so I was just wondering if I would be at all able to ask you a few questions. Also I'm pro-choice, so I thought it would be interesting talking to you.

If you wouldn't mind doing an interview I could just e-mail you the questions or however you would prefer, if you don't have time to do it that's not a problem either. Just let me know!

Thank you so much for your time,
Theresa



The thing is I am not a women's rights scenester and I am definately not pro-life either. In fact I really don't care about the issue because it doesn't effect me very much. How did this mixup happen. I need to talk to (e:holly) about this.

Here is what I am thinking for a response.

Dear Theresa,
That was so last year. Now I am into Animal Rights. Sorry about the confusion but you know how it is with social trends, they move so quick.
Paul



No seriously, I don't know how to respond to this one because I don't want to say I am not "into" women's rights but really I was never very "active."

After gym glider and I ate shrimp

He loves to eat shrimp so much. I love that he eats anything. It makes dinner more fun with the glider. He ended up double fisting the shrimp. I think that is what opposable thumbs are for.
