From My Lawyer To Theirs

Apparently, their lawyer isn't the swiftest. So our lawyer wrote them a letter today. I just want to move in so bad.

::DOWNLOAD SOUND::



Florence,

I just wanted to reiterate my clients' position on the above closing.

As you are aware, the contract closing date was July 11 and pursuant to the contract, possession is to be given to my clients on that day.

Further, the title documents were to be ordered five days after execution of the contract and delivered to me fifteen business days prior to closing. Therefore, please immediately provide me with the up-dated search, survey, tax receipts and proposed Deed.

Further advise your clients, my clients have given notice and must vacate their apartment no later than August 1, 2006. We have every intention of closing on that date and taking possession of the premises.

I am urging you to give this matter top priority.

Jackie

A walk in the city

These bees started a nest in our back door, at first I thought we could learn to live with them peacefully - like with the ants and other bugs. Today they sting (e:terry) and started getting realy out of control. We fought back a bit. I killed some with rocks and terry killed some with soap and water. I called the landlord because I think the problem is getting out of control at this point.

image

Sorry about the blair witchiness of the beginning, I was scared. It might be hard to tell but I think there were about 150 of them.

The traveling barber on elmwood has some interesting signs.

The mansion they are redoing on deleware. It has come along so much since it was just a facade but I am still scared of the pillar holding up the porch roof. It kind of buckles.

Beautiful flowers on the edge of an elmwood concrete crack below the old buddies which is becomming a dinner theatre? Seems like they stopped reconstructing a while back.

Hippiegrrlhas stickers on stop signs why don't I.

All of the towne houses by the old Lord Chumley's are for sale. What is the deal with that. (e:matthew) sai dthey are all like 600,000. We decided that we want to go see them.

The side of the buildings.

What is this pretty house? Does anyone know the history of it? It is right by the corner of virgina and elmwood.

The chocolate bar on Chippewa seems like it could be a really fun outting. It is chocolate bar with chocolate drinks and dessert.

WKSE 98.5 is the building right behind our house. I always wondered what that Barn was.

Italian Festival

We made it out to the Italian Festival. I think I only went one other time since it was on Hertel. I remember the old Italian Festival on Connecticut Street very well. My grandparents would always take me when I was a a kid. But when it moved over to Hertel Ave. itw as too far away.

image

The food was delicious. I had fried calamari, fried ravioli, tortelini in vodka creme sauce, peach and raspeberry italian ice, italian sausage, streak and dandelions, clams, and ice cream. I love whatever that lobster hot place is, even if it is not overhwelmingly italian. They have really good seafood.

image

They had some sort of Italian Dancers from our sister city in Italy. Sorry the pic is so blurry.
image

The fried calamari from Lombardos are the same lame, pre-fab frozen ones that you get a Casa Di Pizza. The ones down the street at Fillippos - were so much better. You could see them actually breading the calamari and frying it. Not to mention tha it was a combination of legs and rings which I prefer. (e:mike) only likes the rings.

I don't know what it is about Lorigos but people were willing to wait over a half an hour in live to get their food. The flyer said they were a wholesale place form Grant Street. Somehow, in my whole Buffalo Italian life I never got introduced to that. It can't be that far away from Guercios.

image

Yummy italian ice. It had the perfect consistency and flavor to me.

image

I wish I could have gotten more pictures but my hands got so greasy so fast.

How can they always have free ice cream everywhere? Did anyone try it at the taste or at the Italian Festival.

Block Sale

Well, it is freakin' hot out and I am sitting in an enclosed car with the windows rolled up waiting to die. I am alergic to lawnmower cutting and some woman started mowing her lawn right as I got in the car to put the canning pot I bought inside. So I decided to wait inside but seeing as its around 90out, I think I only have about 5 minutes left before I die or have to brave the alergies.

image

The Dorchester Block Sale is the lamest blocksale I have seen. I kind of expected better stuff for such a fancy street.

On another note, I met with my thesis advisor and she liked my thesis, gave me a couple additional notes which my computer somehow deleted (hopefully I remember them) and it looks like I will graduate after all.

Just stop reading this if you hate your life.

The more sucessful my life becomes, the more uncomfortable small talk has become. I actually have caught myself lying about my life in order to appear less sucessful.

Typical situation - see someone I haven't seen for a while

Me: how's it going?

Them: It sucks. Buffalo sucks I don't have a job or just got fired, my girlfriend cheated on me, and my landlord sucks.

Me: Oh, that sucks.

Them: How about you?

Me: (quick, think of all the bad crap that has happened - blank) I didn't finish writing my thesis yet?

Insert: Talk about the weather or food

Them: Ya, we really need to get out of this town.

My advice is to just wait it out, times change.

The Tea Party rocked Thrusday in the square.

This girl at Thursday in the square seems to have drawn all over her pants. Everyone was trying to read them.

We stood around, (e:terry) ,(e:mike) , (e:beast) and I.

The tea party was pretty good.

Bathing in a Box

I suggest buying a tote box to bathe in. It is much easier to keep clean than the bathtub and uses less water.

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

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.
