Dyngus day 2010

We hit up the east side for dyngus day.

It was so crazy packed everywhere. There must have been 5,000+ people at the terminal but they were pouring each beer by opening the bottle and pouring it into a plastic cup and there were like 4 workers.

Why can't Italians have a drinking holiday for (e:mike) and I. Who's in for Columbus day 2011!

This jerk in the red sweater cut me in line. Her friends kept encouraging her to "be assertive." I just wanted to punch her but I figured I was an outsider and would get killed.

Aftewards, we headed over to some polish bar in the old polish hood
where they had tastier food. It was fun there.

Spring swimming in zoar valley

I went to zoar valley with (e:mike) and (e:libertad). It's was so awesome
out. We even went swimming! I think is the earliest I have been
swimming. It was cold though, especially when my nuts hit the water
but we survived thanks to the 82 degree air temperature. I I've freak
warm spring days because unlike summer and fall, there are barely any
bugs and no mosquitos or horse flies.

The waterfall was so beautiful right, I wish I took pics.

The valley has changed since the flood. I seriously cannot belive how
high the water must have been during the flood last year. There was
debris and trees fallen 15 feet above normal creek level. It must have looked like the niagara river.

The island we skinny dip on was almost washed away and a new island
formed that was connected to shore by two giant trees that were
brought down when their roots washed out. They made awesome bridges.

24 Linwood painting continued


I got to paint with no shirt on most of the day. The ladder pic is
from like 5 feet higher than the other one. There is no more fucking
hot pink on the house. Side 2 is more than halfway brown. Next step
is the trim. Then the dormers, then the porch floor, then the
woodwork, then the bricks, then get the fireplaces going. Then redo
the bathroom, then the kitchen, then garage. It will never end.

The Gem and fossil show


We went to the gem and fossil show at the Erie county fair grounds.
It was the first opportunity I have had to start the gem collection
that I wanted for so long.

The one thing I didn't consider before was that because of the varying
strengths of the minerals you can't really keep them all in one bag
like I wanted. I guess maybe if they were all the same kind, like a
bag of diamonds.

I decided to start small and went with one bright orange fire opal
which was less than $100. You can see on in the outback steakhose
menu in the pic below. It is so crystal clear estrip orange.

They had all kinds of awesome stones and gems. I really think I could
enjoy being a gem dealer as much as being a computer programmer and
gem dealing sounds easier and less stressful.
