Shakespeare In The Park and poetry

Went out to the (e:strip) Shakespeare in the Park Cultural Gathering imk2,86 - it was pretty fun. Lots of peeps and lots of freakin snacks and drinks. I think everyone had plenty to eat and drink. I

image

even played with a dog for a bit. It was okay because I was outside and it wasn't a cat.

image

The bill was a little riske don't you think?

On another note, my mother sent over potery I wrote in GT in middle school. I think they may have been one of my first times using any sort of layout software. The poetry was more serious than I would have expected out of me. I wonder what I was thinking.

Gay Bathroom?

Q. How do you know you are in a gay bathroom?

A. When you find the pages of an inerior deocarting magazne stuck together on a table in front of the toilette.

Here is also a picture of a cool car I saw on the highway. I think it was a corvette, see you all at Shakespeare in the park.

Taste of Buffalo

Buffalo just tastes good.

image

Seriously, I love this freakin' festival. I eat until I fell like I am going to puke and I get to try all kinds of new stuff and old favorites. I was full and had left over tickets with only $20. I know if went with (e:hodown) or (e:mike) I would have eaten about $40 worth of tickets.

Before I left I debated whether to wear flipflops or shoes with shorts. I think flipflops looked better but I didn't want to get stepped on so instead I wore shoes. My feet look huge when I wear shorts with shoes but nowadays, I just embrace the dorkiness.

image

Avon was there delivering some message about woman getting beaten.
image

I think they wanted them to cover up the problem or to get them and their men to "makeup"?
image

There was lots 80s songs and even some 90s ones. (e:matthew) notices that early 90s might be starting to come back. Thank god, I am ready for the eighties to go away again. It's really weird to think that 1980 is as far away now as 1960 was in 1986. Remember the 60s nostalgia then followed byt he 70s and most recently 80s nostalgia.

Crawfish just taste good. I am so satisfied ripping their heads off and eating the meat from the tail.

image

Pigskins. I think this is new this year. It is deep fried potato skins loaded with pulled pork and covered in nacho cheese.
image

There is this mirror on bada-bing on chippewa that makes me look tough. (e:matt) and (e:terry) too - it adds about 30 lbs
image

This is a pic of Lance Diamond entertaining us. He kept singing love songs and replacing the woman in the songs with Buffalo itself. You got to love Lance Diamond. Notice the vote for Nader 96 sticker which leads me to believe if I order real estrip.org bumper stickers and put them up everywhere, no one will ever remove them.

Congratulations shawnr

I was writing a comment to congratulate (e:shawnr,280) on his landing of a great job at PBS in DC and it got me thinking about the BUffalo Brain Drain.

It is so sad that Buffalo is losing him though. Buffalo should be more sad than I am because he is truly one of the young people with a vision and capability to make a change and places like UB are so lame for not having jumped on that.

In fact all of the smartest people I know have left. Maybe I am an idiot for staying (selfish sidenote: the more of you that leave the better I look - if enough tech people leave, I can just lie and say I invented the internet).

(e:southernyankee), (e:ajay) , (e:hodown) , (e:haikuster) , (e:codypomeray) , (e:emilyjane) , (e:iriesara) , (e:emily) , (e:jesse) , (e:julie) (e:robin) have all already left - not to mention the fact that I have heard (e:nejiffer) , (e:ladycroft) , (e:jenks) and many others say they expect to work in other cities when they are finally done with their school/interns.

I have a feeling in ther end it will be carey, mike, jill, me, terry and matt- hopefully living on lincoln parkway.

Firm Hand Rental

I tried being super nice and then I just get rent checks on the 20th of the month. This is my new attempt at better control. I spent more than the total downstairs rent on upgrades and paint this year and owe a mortgage on the property so I have to be most serious.

Dear Tenants,
Before I renew everyone's leases for August I just wanted to make it clear that I am not running a rooming house and that the rent for the apartments is for the total apartment regarless of how many tenants reside inside.

Upstairs:
1. Good news, the rent will remain the same $550 for upstairs. ($183.34 per person for 3 people, $275 per person for 2 people, or $550 for 1 person).

2. Starting in August you can mail checks to my new residence. I need all rent checks in one envelope - saves you two stamps and saves trees.

Starting Next Month;
24 Linwood AVenue,
Buffalo, NY 14209

3. Thank you to those of you that have paid on time this year. I am no longer going to be allowing people to pay late without penalty. As before, the penalty is $5 per day after the 5th of the month. As before, the penalty is $5 per day after the 5th of the month. It will be strictly enforced and late payment penalities are required to be paid with that month's rent. Failure to comply will result in eviction.

4. I am taking the dining room set out, however, I will be replacing the table with a new table for you to use.

5. If any of this is not agreeable to you, please consider this a 30-day notice.

Two days of mobl living

Yummy, 4 boxes of really fancy dipped chocolate cookies in silver boxes arrived from (e:hodown) in NYC
image

I went to my cousins graduation party in East Aurora. Their house is no nice with lots of land. It is a log cabin that they built back in the 80s. I still can't imagine living that far from the city. As usual we played boccie ball.

Missing Image ;(



Met a guy who was a Roswell patient and got cured only recently - he loved Roswell.

Speaking of Roswell. I Marie Curie at Roswell when walking to the server room the other day. She looked somehow different than I expected.
image

The other day I went with (e:Matthew) and (e:terry) to southpark next to the botanical gardens on route 62 in Lackawanna.

A crazy bug we saw of a type I never saw before, at least I don't think so.
image

Here is (e:mattehw) taking a picture of it too.

Went to go see Indie Arie at Thursday in the Square. I believe it was even more crowded than Pat Benetar for those of you that were there. They even closed off the square part way through and shut down the subway so no more people could come and it couldn't run anyone over.. I got stuck behind the stage most of the evning.
image

(e:eknot) knew some woman who had a store that had a bathroom so I went to go pee but some 13 y/o drunk girl went in before me and messed the bathroom up really bad. It was yucktastic.
image

Afterwards, I saw (e:ladycroft) and (e:nejifer) and we walked over to my house which took a while but we got to go past the new mansion. At 10PM (e:theecarey) came over and she came with us and then out to dinner at Panos. Then (e:theecarey) and I planned our business super universe and get rich schemes till about 4am. Someday you will be say, "Hey I knew those bizzilionaires when they were just estrippers, before they bought Disney and Microsoft"

We signed our lives over to the new house. Apparently, the patriot act has something to do with buying a house too.

Updates SurbertCom

I updated the surebertCom library to add lots of new array functions and two new string ones.

strings: ltrim, rtrim, trim
arrays: drop, random, unique, combine, inject, substrCount, strstr, stristr, walk

I still haven't documented everything but strings and array methods are fully documented with examples. Same with sound, events, and ajax. Check it out if you are a javascripter.

Super Lame Fireworks

The show at the baseball stadium is ultra nationalistic. They spent like 15 minutes announcing each part of the army and lighting off one firework for each.

The finale was a little better but still kind of blah, sorry about the blair witch effect at the beginning, it was windy.

I guess sometimes they aren't too fast

The squirrel never made it across West Ferry. Maybe the car was going to fast?
