double vision
i'm in recovery from an extremely long and damaging vacation.

Lake George was great, New Years was great, and the Bandits game was great.

We even had the Bandettes in our suite with us!

But after 5 nights of drinking and shenanigans, I'm ready for the monotony of daily life.

I am sorry I missed the Estrip New years party though - it looked like great fun.

Oh and I watched Dark Knight last night. Creepy.

Missed you and Lauren. Happy new year! :)
metalpeter - 01/05/09 20:02
Wait even with cash flow problems I would have gone who am I kidding, Assuming I didn't all ready have something going on, hope everyone had a great new years.
metalpeter - 01/05/09 19:46
The Dark Knight was pretty good. I love the Bandettes and the Bandits game was pretty good. I had no idea about the pearl st. get together either, this is my first hearing about it (but I'm having a little bit of a cash flow problem currently [I have money coming soon just not extra] so I may not have gone anyways, the last time their was pretty good so I hope anyone who went had a great time.
jenks - 01/05/09 12:55
wait, what? gathering at pearl street? How come no one told me? I even asked... in email and on here. Gotta say, that stings.
mrmike - 01/05/09 10:02
Loved Dark Knight. New Year's was indeed a blast and even the impromptu Lady Croft themed gathering at Pearl Street was a good time. But, I actually didn't mind settling into work this morning.

vacation from vacation
I'm tired. As excited as I am for heading out for my annual trip to Lake George for New Years, I'm tired. And I can't wait till next sunday, my next FULL day off with really nothing to do but recover.

And since that will be the day after the bandits game, I'm intending on being hungover then as well.

(E:Janelle) or (E:drew) - Let me know when we can drop off the key. (e:lauren) will be out running errands and should be able to drop off the key, if need be. But she doesn't remember where you live either (she was absolutely no help to me in finding your place) so maybe she will go door to door!

This list errand list is too long to write.
tinypliny - 12/31/08 11:22
Haaaaaapppyyyy new year! (e:felly) and (e:lauren)!
janelle - 12/29/08 07:42
We have a small thank you treat for you, so maybe tonight I can drop it off to you or Lauren at your apartment and get the key? Will one of you be home?

for your pleasure
james - 12/27/08 00:40
Indeed, you do get an F for not being drunk.
paul - 12/26/08 23:32
Writing by hand is so hard. A lot of my phones have touchscreens which let you write handwritten letters. I used to use xjournal for the not phone to do this but seriously after only a little while, my hand cramps up writing with a pen.
mrmike - 12/26/08 23:06
very cool
fellyconnelly - 12/26/08 21:43
its crazy to get used to, and going between typing and drawing... but fun!
tinypliny - 12/26/08 21:36
Very cool! Bamboo fun tablet? I have been meaning to get that in forever because I think I am rapidly progressing toward a carpel tunnel syndrome and the pen will be a mouse substitute.

12/25/2008 15:49 #47185

I'm at my brothers. My dog won't stop crying. He missed (e:lauren). I think its time to go home.
fellyconnelly - 12/26/08 20:14
i brought his food with me, but when we go visit my family - they all give him table scraps. lucky bastard!

hes much better now, but i just feel so bad for leaving him alone all day.
heidi - 12/26/08 18:05
yeah, traveling is hard on puppies. Nisha & I spent the night in three different beds across four nights, with different dog food in each place. Poor puppy got sick and was very quiet all day on Wednesday.

Lots of petting to Ralphie! Hope you both get to see (e:lauren) soon.

China Cat Sunflower is living in A's basement while I'm in Tioga County off & on over the next three weeks. She's not doing too bad - same kitty litter, same food, same bed. She's found hiding spots in different rooms so she can watch people.
tinypliny - 12/25/08 16:44
Poor Ralphie...

12/22/2008 06:43 #47134

Its kind of cute how every morning as I eat my cereal at the computer desk, my cat sits patiently at the edge of the desk, staring longingly at the bowl. He never gets any, but somehow he knows that what is in that bowl is reaaally good.

Last night I was trimming ralphie's obscenely long nails and cut one too close. He was bleeding so much, both (e:lauren) and I were crying. He was fine, we were crying.

we went to my uncle's on Saturday night. He lives on fort niagara. As in his house is next to the giant walls of the fort. He actually lives in the lighthouse keepers house. We walked through the castle by 'candlelight', froze to death and then played 'you might be a redneck if' with a few family members. (e:lauren) and I won. Oh yeah.

Shoveling is good exercise, huh? I got to dig out my car twice this weekend, and (e:lauren)'s car once. The problem is that we have no place to put the snow in the parking lot, so I was throwing the snow over a 6 foot plus high fence. My shoulders are crying.

And last night we ran out to wegmans for some essentials and when we got back, some idiot was parked across two spaces. I had to squeeze into the last space that was barely possible, and I'm sure that somebody did not get to park in the lot. (e:lauren) wrote 'douche' across the back of their car in snow, but when I looked outside later - somebody had wiped it off. how sad.

I'm unsure as to how this morning is about to progress. I'm rather nervous, to be quite frank, of going outside, digging myself out and attempting to drive to, of all places, Springville. I have to be there by 8:30. I should be leaving in two minutes if I want to get there on time.

I have tucked my dress pants into my tube socks. what the hell is wrong with me?
fellyconnelly - 12/23/08 07:29
Actually, e;lauren just went and got pedipaws yesterday! I have to get batteries for it today and then let him get accustomed to being around it and ill let you know if it was a waste of time.
Thanks for the quickstop offer, we used flour and it helped a little. We won't be at the new years party tho, I'm sorry!

And I'm sorry about the cereal tease!
heidi - 12/23/08 01:18
does anyone know if the pedi-paws works? (my friend A keeps calling it pedi-file! oi! we almost bought one tonight)
tinypliny - 12/22/08 21:54
Oh man. Talk about cheating your readers. Your post was around 0.5% about "cereal". *Pout*
libertad - 12/22/08 13:42
Oh poor Ralphie! He is sooo cute. Do you have any kwik-stop syptic powder to stop the bleeding? I have some in case I ever cut my wab's nails too short. If you want some I can bring you some at the party. I have much more than I ever would need.
fellyconnelly - 12/22/08 13:37
Yes, it is not pleasing to me to drive to springville, but I guess I don't have too much choice.

My grandparents live on lake road btwn youngstown and wilson so I'm used to the area, moreso than buffalo! But yes its a beautiful place for him to live and can't wait to view it in warmer (daylight) temperatures!
theecarey - 12/22/08 12:07
ahhh! I wondered if someone actually lived there all year long. It is such a far way into the fort that it would creep me out at night, especially in the winter. Although it might be kinda cool too.

I live in Youngstown right near the fort, so it amuses me when people venture into my little neck of the woods here.

Poor Ralphie, now I am going to think of him when I see those commercials for the "pedi-paws"- that grinder like nail trimmer. I've never cut my cats nails too short to where they bleed, but crying from me would ensue for sure!
paul - 12/22/08 10:20
Damn, springville is one hell of a drive in this weather.
