Party Leftovers - This Weekend

(e:terry)'s grandfather died yesterday and he is leaving for Utah so I don't know if we will be going anywhere this weekend. (e:ladycroft), this is what is left from the party - we finished the gin during cleanup. You can get it whenever, just give me a shoutout. I should be around most of the evening. If you email me I can get it form anywhere.

Diesel Boy

Buffalo Rising reported that Diesel Boy will be playing at Opium Lounge on 9th. The last time I saw him spin was in Phoenix in 2000. It's amazing that he is still going. Does anyone want to go? It costs $10.

Friday, Sept 9th, at the Opium Lounge: Dieselboy.

North America's biggest drum-n-bass dj/producer/label chief, and is also one of the biggest dj's in the world, period! He hasn't played Buffalo in several years, and this appearance is much anticipated by people from all over Upstate NY and Southern Ontario.Quoted from: Buffalo Rising Journal



This not having a mobile phone situation is killing m, I keep seeing so many things I want to take pictures of but I can't!

at the festival

We saw so many people at the festival. I am strung out on ice chai from spot coffee. This is the only time of year that I really miss living right on elmwood. It used to be so nice to watch the main stage from the window. (e:terry) is having a happy birthday.

I captured about 3 hours of sound. Here is a sample from the singers on (e:matthew) journal [inlink]matthew,610[/inlink]

the fair - klu klux lamb?

I finished getting everything to work on linux accept the printer. Maya, zend studio, wireless, apache, php5, pspell and a gigantic assortment of free apps. Now I just need to have time to use the computer instead of just setting it up.

We went to the fair to see all the tasty animals. What is up with this lamb? All the lambs are covered like this. Is it to protect their coat for the show? It kind of reminds me of those italians that cover their couches in vinyl.

image

Check out the face on that chicken-like thing below. It was on sale for $20. I wish I had more land or that winter wasn't coming. I saw a chicken lay an egg for the first time. It is pretty gross.

image

Food. Like every Buffalo metropolitan area event, food was the main attraction. I ate italian sausage, fried ice cream, birch beer, fries, and the best thing I ever had in my life. Basically, it combines my two favorite foods - maybe syrup and cotton candy. There is a picture of (e:matthew) holding it below but I ate the whole bag myself.

image

Then we went to the animal freak show. It was disgusting. I feel bad for giving them money. The animals were in such bad conditions. There were two five legged cows. They had this tiny box with a big snake in it. On the box it said,"ancient belief - touching silver coins to a snake brings good luck" The cage was all full of dirty money. Some of it was even in the food bowl.

(e:ladycroft), they had the biggest zuzchini contest and it wasn't nearly as big as yours. Yous should enter next year.

The Erie County Fair

(e:metalpeter) [inlink]metalpeter,399[/inlink] wrote about the Erie County fair today which reminded that I should post some more information about it. If you haven't been to the fair I would suggest checking it out. Last year I attended with (e:matthew), (e:terry) and (e:holly) and got to see all the prize wining farm animals, dances, and yummy food. Here is the web site for the fair.

Here are our journal reports of last year's fair with lots of pictures.

The 10,000 Party

American theme worked. The 10,000 party was fantastic. Just about everybody brought a bottle of something, quickly transformiing our house into a bar. I was fine until pat suggested we do several shots of goldschlager, my favorite drink. I don't drink very often or very much, so the multiple shot policy reduced me to on the floor only mode by 2am, shortly after showering (e:mike) with the bus tokens that were slotted for our "charity run."

We met a lot of new people and it was great on all accounts. I missed the video game part but I hear (e:ladycroft) plays a mean mariocart. She also makes delicious vegatarian zuchini squares. To bad you missed that (e:leetee) !!

For the record both (e:jason) and (e:joshua) do exist and they are both pretty cool guys.

Now onto the crazy part geoffrey was insane. He spilled his drinks everywhere including on his ride, stomped all around like royalty,and finally, while being escorted out by (e:hodown) said -who is that bitch throwing me off my stage, referring to the porch. He truly topped his already over the top self. The poor girl he was with had only been friends with him for a month.

Also both Sara Ross (e:iriesara) and Emily Keating (e:emilyjane) showed up but Emily had no idea Sara would be there. It was a fun surprise.

Okay, time to right 10,000 more entries!!

$20 sneakers and america theme

(e:mike) drove (e:hodown) and I down to party city to get decorations for the estrip 10,000 party.

image

The made in china, oil based, sweat shop enhanced america theme was 50% off, so like any good event organizer we had our venture capitalist suppport manager by it all up. They even had fake ants for your picnic needs.

Taste of Buffalo

I went to the taste of Buffalo with (e:matthew) and (e:terry) . We also took our neighbor Katie. It was pretty crowded for later evening. The niagara square area is pretty spacious but the part of deleware was crowded beyond Main Street levels. I wonder what the future holds for the event.

For about $20 I had 7 crawfish, coconut crusted shrimp with mango sauce, two lamb sticks (one piece from rack of lamb), jerk chicken, rice, yummy tortellini from Pearl Street Brewery, and a Sicilian rice ball. I realy liked the Sicilian rice ball. It was kind of like a ball of risotto, battered and fried with tomato sauce. I was also very yummy. Here is a recipe for it. It is also known as Arancini. I never had them before. Although I am 1/4 Sicilian, my nonna never cooked so we ate mostly venetian food with an occasional Sicilian treat my grandmother learned to cook in America from other Sicilians on the west side. I really think my mom would like this one.

image

I can't believe how many people waited in line to be advertised by crest and dove soap. Did any of you get any of that free crap.

So I ate and I also worked out today. SoonI will be buff, at that point I will start beating people up for fun, so watch out - lol.

The party Was Crazy

Everyone is still recovering from the party last night. It was nuts. Lots of people recorded the event, so I hope to see some good pics of the actual event here. I only took pics afterwards. We had at least 104 people at the party according to (e:jill) 's list, which I think is quite accurate.

image

I believe the last people left around 7. It was such a diverse crowd of people, many of whom did not know each other, but everyone got along great.

(e:lilho) worked the bar most of the night. She actually made $16 in tips.

image

Somewhere, there is a whole video of that, which I will post as soon as it is edited and compressed. Thank you (e:soyeon) for bringing your camera dn the delicious ham sushi.

Everything got really dirty. This is a picture of t he kitchen floor to give you an idea. The whole apartment is pretty nasty though, we will have a full day of cleaning ahead but I am the only person up so far.

image

(e:terry) took a Claritan D and past out in the living. His alergies must have been really bad.

image

(e:mike) went to bed early, first on top of (e:jill) 's car and then with a little work getting him back into the house, he fell asleep on the floor. Basically, how any 21st birthday party should be celebrated.

image

(e:matthew) 's friend's Christine and Tony came out. They brought a giant high heel pinata which complimented our parrot pinata for a dual pinata party. There was so much candy, I think that is why so many people satyed so long. Pinata's are a bad idea in the long run, they made a giant mess and now there are 3000 peices of candy to pick up.

image

Here is the kitchen sink, like any surface in the house it is covered in bottles. You can see the parrot pinata's head above the sink.

image

The Kitchen table is the same way. It will be so fun cleaning.
