Silent Hill Inspiration

Today, I went to go see Silent Hill with my boss and co-worker. It was a pretty lame storyline but got me curious if it was based on any sort of real town. Turns out it is and that town is called Centralia, PA (WIKIPEDIA - Centralia%2C_Pennsylvania) and has been on fire for years.

image

you can see it here on gogle maps

in 1981, 12-year-old Todd Domboski fell into a sinkhole that suddenly opened beneath his feet. He was saved after a relative pulled him out of the hole, which was estimated to be hundreds of feet deep. The incident brought national attention to Centralia, and in 1984, Congress allocated more than $40 million for relocation efforts. Most of the residents accepted the buy-out offers and moved to nearby Mount Carmel and Ashland.

Robot or Dateline

So (e:hodown) was visiting and as everyday for the last week I recevie an IM from this random internet user which I think is a robot because they once mentioned smarterchild

I asked them what their favorite person in American Idol was and they said Kelly Pickler, then they said they wanted to have sex with me. I signed off figuring it was just some internet stalker. It's hard being a celebrity.

So anyways then today I was sitting here with (e:hodown) and the person Imed me again. I have blocked them multiuple tiems but they just chaneg screen names. This was (e:hodown) and tehir conversation today. Is it a robot? Is it dateline trying to entrap us in some child internet sex conversation? What the fuck is it?

Streets of bread

What the deal with the streets being full of bread. (e:mike) said it's a jewish thing, I can't understand why anyone would throw perfectly good food in the street. It's all over downtown.

Paul on the go

Don't step on lawn at Canisius High school the scumbags sprayed it but only have two little yellow flags that I didn't see till after I went through it.

I hope whoever made that choice dies of cancer.
image

Does anyone know more info about this?

image

This journal is about a lot of things. I kept meaning to post but I have been so freakin' busy and now I have a bunch of picture on my phone that need to go somewhere and I' in the car doin nothing so here it goes.

(e:terry) and I went to get the oil changed on Niagara Falls Blvd and had to waste an hour and a half. We decided to go shooping at the mall in order to buy some pants. I really only go there about once a year and let me tell you it changes a lot over time when you only see small time snippets of it each year. When I grew up it was mostly only white people with some black people at the mll. Today the mall has a huge cross section o all kinds of cultures. There were prob as many people from india and asia as there were black and whites. For a minute it seemed like a mall in toronto. I wonder if the population of these northern suburbs reflect that. I haven't lived or hung out around here since high school. When I went to high school I think there were one black person, one mulatto and maybe an asian person and a family of asianattos (irish and asian) and that was (e:hodown) and (e:lilho)'s family.

If the population has changed that much, I would say that the suburbs are more ethnically diverse than the city where it seems mostly black or white to me with the exception of the hispanic west side.

I know I am getting old now when all my clothing shopping needs can be met at Sears.

Who buys all these pre ripped in exact pattern jeans. It is sucha great idea for the company as they almost immediately require replacement.

I bought cyborg implant bluetooth headset at the wall so I don't have to touch my phone to my head.

Polish Water Ice - I wrote about it before never tried it till today. What we got was a cup filled italian lemon ice.

image

Frankly, I think the polish people that named this water-ice must have never tried lemon ice and thought they invented something new. Also, what the hell is up with that stupid name. Is ice not considered water in Poland?

Here is my theory. Polish people desperately wanted lemon ice but couldn't afford flavor so they told there kids it was a new yummy treat caled water ice.

image

Once in america they added flavoring agents and opened the stand in the mall. Here is their story:

image

Who are the people that make these animatronic setups. If it didn't seem so empty and meanginless I think I could enjoy that kind of job.

image

What is so weird is the televesion ont he side showing the event in real time. The even tyou are seeing in real time in full siz.e It makes no sense. According to (e:hodown) Kristina Kling's family goes to see this display every year. Those people can make some mean parmasean chicken wings and clams casino.

Bad Day

The car is broken at some engine level. I am praying for a timing belt level problem, unfortunately, the coolant light is on too. So it is probably something more sinsiter. One time driving around the country (e:terry) and I lost a car when it overheated. The fan belt ripped off the car at 90mph and by the time we slowed down on the highway, everything was on fire and smoking. No one got hurt but we lost our car and got stuck in an Amish resort town for two weeks and the car never moved again. They would go their to get cured at some natural healer guys hotel where we also stayed. I probably wrote about this before. We had to hitchhike out.

Anyways, so no car. I also have to deal with the paint at my tenants house or they are going to revoke the insurance, at least so the letter says. I did the stupidest thing. Last fall I scraped the paint on the front-top of the house but then it got to cold to paint so it looked like crap on the section I scraped. Yes, it was so dumb, I know but I am still learning about the whole land owning thing. That need to be dealt with today as well.

Then there is the thesis that is due in two weeks and still is not edited. Maybe I will work on it. Maybe. (e:shawnr) finished his. Good for him.

Honestly, I would rather just be at work programming right now.

Yesterday we at at fat bobs. Yummy fried cat fish.

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.

image

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.
