the early nerd gets the phone

I got to the apple store too late. They have enough phones but the At&t servers were down and so the line was estimating 4 hours. I do not wait for anything for 4 hours - accept maybe food during some future rationing. I mean I already have a 3 g capable gps mobile on AT&T what is waiting another bit for it to be an iPhone.

It's so stupid that the force instore activation. It makes me hate AT&T. I mean if they are going to demand it they should make sure they have the resoucres to handle it.

Plus they are so cheap that they will become commonplace making it exponentially less cool and less worthy of a four hour wait. - it's kind of like when Hello Kitty when they started selling it at target and you no longer had to travel to the ends of the earth to find the San rio store.

I still want one though, I am just not willing to wait. The craziest part Is that in that four hour long line it was exclusively men.

image

Plus they are so cheap now and si many people will have one, that it's not even something special

The rest of the day I will be working on the apartment.

The new iphone firmware 2.0 with AIM

Finally, the iphone natively has AOL instant messenger app which by the way is free. This I imagine will make it a big seller for a lot of people.

You can get the new firmware here but you will need itunes 7.7 to activate your phone. I got it using system update on my mac.

work
Nice, it also does exchnage mail, calendar, etc.

A day in the life of Paul

I had a very productive programming day at work. No one was there - it was like a ghost town - so I actually got stuff done.

Squiddy is really into climbing in the pear tree which is loaded with pears. I was really nervous something was wrong after we had no pears last year. Maybe it really is an every oher year thing.

image

At this parking lot on North and Main where Medina Deli used to be for a week before it shut down, they are putting these signs on people's windows. I figured they would crack down eventually as the lot was full each day. On the other hand, I think it looks way less abandoned with cars in it.
image

The last tenant and we will have a completely empty duplex with 2 - 3 bedroom apartments. I am ready to do some more remodeling and this will be the final chance to have no one before a new school year starts. It is kind of exciting to start over, especially since the last girl left always pays her rent late. The bathrrom really needed some work anyhow.

image

After the gym I ate some grass fed steak on the grill and some fried cauliflower. Grow muscles, grow.
image

I actually fried it all by myself, which if you know me and frying, is a miracle.
image

I'm trying to write a short description of us for that photo book but it's hard to be sexy, interesting, and endearing in a brief passage:

8 years ago Terry and I met Matthew through a chance encounter with a mutual friend. He stayed over and wore our clothes because I was allergic to his cats and ferrits. The next week he moved in and the three of started a beautiful friendship that lead to love. People are always most curious about how we handle jealousy or commodities. We share everything from our house, an historic church rectory that we bought in 2006, down to our bed and even our underwear - many of which our moms bought for us. We aren't jealous of each other's affection and we keep safe from the unsafe without having to play it safe. There is always someone's shoulder to cry on and an arbitrator for every angry moment. Our pet tortoise named Bazra completes our family. While we have heard of plenty of gay threesome, lol, we never met any other serious triads - yet we would suggest it to anyone.

Matt's Sisters Birthday

We headed down to the Lake Chautauqua area for (e:matthew)'s sister's birthday party at (e:matthew)'s parents cabin. Happy Birthday Mary! For the first time I had AT&T coverage everywhere. Not just sort of service but like full bar connection. Even way out at the end of this country road.

image

On the way there we stopped at the Depew Wegman's to get some supplies and some food. The food was such a freakin' ripoff. It was like $23 for the three of us to eat cafeteria quality crap. I would never eat there again. The dining area was seriously sub par compared to the Wegman's on Amherst St. I had some cold turkey and Italian wedding soup. I think in the end there was more garbage than food.

image

Here is (e:matthew)'s family's dog chillin in the sun.
image

Here is everyone sitting around
image

And here is (e:matthew) getting a close up of some forget me nots.

Fourth Of July At the Harbor

We went to see the fireworks at the harbor front/ new canal area with (e:jim) and (e:james). (e:jim) got good pics of the fireworks with his phone I think. (e:matthew) tried taking some with mine. I can't believe none of us brought a real camera.

image

Here is a blurry pic of the crowd. I wish I had brought a real camera. I am going to regret this later when I look back at the iphone years.
image

It was interesting to see a part of downtown so populated with so many people. I heard multiple people taking about how they were amazed at the progress and to all the people who said they would never see a revitalized waterfront downtown - the time has come - at least for the Fourth of July. I actually heard one woman say she loved the fact that now she can take visitors downtown to see the waterfront and not be embarrassed. I have to question if she has ever been down there before though, because the Marina area itself has been pretty nice for a while.

Floating War Junk
I know I will get some slack for this but the floating war junk cemetery looks so ridiculous to me. Is it really an attraction. I mean I know it has always been there, but really put yourself in some other country visiting on the waterfront and imagine the impression you would have. Like imagine a trip to China and they had those warships on the riverfront. And if we are trying to give a mighty powerful image, then those are the wrong ships. They look ancient.

image

What I really did not understand was the really bad irish musi. THey played almost no American music andwhile I am not a big americana fan, serioulsy - isn't that what the fourth is about. I think they really need to reconsider the music next year - almost no one clapped.

Yummy Squid at Kunis To Go

Kuni's to go really has the best sushi around. I just can't believe how fresh and yummy everything always is.

Mackarel is still my favorite
image

(e:Terry) and I got the squid rings as an appetizer. They are the absolutely most perfect consistency. It makes me wonder if he has a tank of fresh ones swimming around in the back.
image

Speaking of squid. Here is a picture of my and squiddy in the pear tree which incidentally has a lot of pears growing again, yeah!

image

Behind Cole's there is this giant pile of boxes. How big does it grow before they take it away.
