World Cup, enjoying life or trying to..

What Happened to Poland? I just have this gut feeling that they are going to finish third for some reason. We will see in the next game if that even has a remote possibility of happening.

If they crap out then I guess I will have to pull for my adopted team Ghana. I just love pulling for a young up and coming team in a tough situation or group in this case. Czech Rep, Italy, USA what luck of the draw!! But, they are my one college buddy's native team so I joining him. It's just that they really have all the elements of a team that I would totally pull for, being green underdogs.

So I just can't waste any more time today. I didn't do anything last night but sleep. Not savoring my free time is a bit of a let down, but after 12 hours of sleep I do feel much better physically and mentally. So I guess it beats waking up with a hangover.

Now I have to get my butt down to Allen and Franklin to catch my Cousin's band The Bailey Quarters playing MIA @ 2:45.

Thursday at the Square II

So with a few people going today where is everyone going to be mostly? Left Stage, right Stage back beet tent?

I usually find myself watching the show from the extreme left or right street sides.

I'm not too sure on what I'll be wearing.

So if anyone wants to actually meet up for the Square let me know.

I'll most likely be arriving around 7-7:30. It's just I don't have the energy to be there for the entirety.

Thursday at the Square

When I first read the schedule for this year I just passed over Mike Doughty's band. Then someone at work today asked me to check the lineup for tomorrow, then I read the write up,THE FORMER LEAD SINGER OF SOUL COUGHING!!! I loved those guys back in the day.

Oh, the song True Dreams of Wichita just brings back memories of my late best friend Mike.

All I have going through my head right now is Super Bon Bon

Move aside and let the man go through let the man go through

I just remember what my old friend Colleen called his music "Slacker Jazz!"

This is going to be an interesting show to see how his solo stuff fairs. Just the song title that they reference on sounds interesting, "Busting up a Starbucks"

Sunset

Hate posting twice in the top 12 but I just had to post this pic and have a post on this day that is supposed to be "evil."

After 3 hours of inline skating this evening I was going to go to spot but just felt way too tired to carry on. So I got off on the Ontario St exit and entered the boat launch/fishing parking lot along the 190 and just reflected about things in my life to this:

Are Investment Bankers on Wall St. playing a joke for today?

A post from Work!!!

[search][/search]So I have decided I am going to risk a post from the network @ the casino. Actually I'm not too worried about the things that I have posted on here. Now if it was my LJ then I'd be a bit worried.

I had a solid but laid back weekend. Spent time with my old high school friend Christine and we just had a quick dinner at this place out in the country called Bandanna's. All we basically did was just share war stories and catch up on things that happened over a decade ago that just tweak your persecutions of people about past events. Strange how knowing one small detail just changes your view on a person for the good, bad or shock. Later that night I ended up hitting up HUSH @ this casino with my old college buddy Junior. He basically drafted me as an adopted fan for Ghana for the World Cup. Hush has finally come into it's own as I estimate there were more people there on Saturday than on Third Street. It was an interesting time, but a little too heavy of a toll on the wallet.

Sunday I just spent over in Fort Erie with my long time friend Scott. We always spoke about going over to the track and we finally did on a descent day. I didn't lose too much, but I did have a good time with an old friend with a brain. Which is never a bad time.

So that was my calm but occupied weekend.

What is up with kids these days?

Sometime during the uneventful night where i pretty much slept most of the night away, I had some of my stockpile of leftovers for dinner. As I was catching up on old editions of the Buffalo News I came across a police and courts article concerning two women under the age of 21 from my immediate area (Lew-Port). I had noticed that they were listed as Niagara University Students and had been charged with a hit and run, possession of cocaine and crack and Adderall pills, disorderly conduct. From what the article said they were flying down Pine Avenue and ended up hitting a minivan and then all of the other fun and joy came to light.

I remember when in High School I did hang around the "baddest" girl in the school. She did things along those lines and was then expelled and home schooled. Later I did end up dating her and well that is a long story.

Although I may be generalizing but my point is this, it seems that most 19-24 year old that still live down here in Lewiston are just plain freaking nuts. This 19 year old friend of mine at work from Youngstown was the one that BEAT UP her EX-BOYFRIEND for DUMPING HER!!! Obviously he was not interested in reconciliation. She is not an evil person and i know her older sister, but WTF!!!!!

At lest i got about 12+ hours of sleep today.

Now I am ready for at lest a stop by the Hellenic Festival to gorge myself on some Greek Food.

Canada

(WIKIPEDIA - )So I spent the evening over in Canada tonight. I had dinner over at Fallsview and just puttered around enjoying the roar of the falls. I'm posting my Falls Pics since everyone else seems to be doing it lately, Ha Ha

So (WIKIPEDIA - Ricky WIlliams) is now a Toronto Argonaught! I actually love the guy. We're about the same age and both had out bouts with shyness/social anxiety disorder. I never quite got into Yoga, but could. I just can generally relate to the being the quiet "weird" guy. It is just funny that he is now going to play in my "home and native land." Being from Hamilton he is playing for the arch rivals of my Hamilton Tiger Cats, but I can put that aside. I did when Raghib Ismail played for Toronto when he bailed on the NFL.

But the irony is just killing me. He is only playing up here because he violate the NFL drug police (Smoking Weed) and is suspended from the Dolphins for a year. Well Ricky Marijuana is ALMOST legal in Canada so we will just look at you as a Political Asylum Seeker. It is just in less than an hour you won't be able to smoke anything indoors in Ontario as the COMPLETE Smoking ban takes effect. You better be 9 meters away from the door after midnight.

When I was walking around Casino Niagara I was ALMOST tempted to smoke one last cigarette. Then I realized that I didn't want to smell or push the envelope of falling off the wagon. So I just walked through the place sucking in second hand smoke for the last time ever indoors in Ontario. Oh the memories of almost 10 years ago. When I was in the process of blowing my big money from the 90's sucking down a Export 'A' or whatever I smoked back then, maybe a Salem Ultra Light?

SO here is to Ricky Williams coming up to Canada to play football and smoke...but not indoors.

Rollerblading

Went for a descent skate this afternoon. I just love the heat and to me there is nothing greater than the feeling you get when you come in out of the sun and just wash all of the salty slim off of your body in a hot shower.

I popped in the new Tool when I was blading and now it is finally growing on me. I skated by this house along the way to Old Fort Niagara where i did quite a few exploratory things when I was in High School. I was just realized that I was smoking herb and listening to Tool about 13 years ago at the house. Now I am just whizzing by with their latest CD from the mind of Maynard. Didn't care for it too much at first, now I just can't get enough of it.

Had dinner tonight with my Dad @ my place of employment.
The Italian Meal @ LA CASCATA. It was a descent meal, but I bit down on an olive pit in this garlic paste and it is just annoying the heck out of me right now. Hopefully it will just fade away. I have taken bigger chomps on bigger pits before.

If anyone would to Rollerblade or go for a descent walk on Wednesday let me know.
