and then she kicked me **all sing songy and such** [12 Nov 2008|06:54pm]
[ mood | how is elated not a mood??? ]

Yea I don't care I sound a bit of the 'MO on this one I have been walking around for the last two days inserting she kicked me into various different songs, some make sense some don't, I am pretty sure the people at work think I have gone round the bend, and that is saying something from the group I work with. The reason for this particular out burst of musical interlude is that as I was laying in bed with hand on Natalie's belly watching a movie or tv show or whatever it was before we fell asleep, I felt the girl reach up and with all her little might hit the palm of my hand... something akin to pure elation is the best way to describe that.

This also provided another sobering moment when I realized I feel totally incapable of raising more children and spent the next six hours until I had to go to work looking for a job that paid a lot better than I have now and I am qualified for, since I ain't qualified for much I think I only sent out a few aps, but you get the idea... just a minor case of paranoia setting, I'll get over it.

It's getting real now folks!

I love the tournament [20 Mar 2008|11:37am]
Derek will get a kick out of this, but basically, I had to save it forever and ever... now, in the vain of the sports gal on espn.com, I give you natalies bracket selections and more importatly how she arrived at her choices!

So this is how I arrived at my choices

North Carolina is where my family used to vacation. One summer we built a dam out of river rocks and it is still there today. Also saying "Mount St. Mary" sounds blasphemous.
Indiana is more fun to say than Arkansas
I used to know a George Mason and I did not like him at all.
Washington is where the northernmost rain forest in this hemisphere is located, and that is just cool
Ohhhhhhhhhhklahoma is my favorite musical
Louisville - can't say it without feeling like I have a mouthful of pebbles
A-la-BAMA
Tennessee - I've just got Tenn on my brain today

Kansas has a (1) next to it and I think that means really good, so we'll go with that.
I was just listening to the 4 Dead in O-hi-o song, so Kent State, that's a sign
Clemson is the bratty little cousin in the Rose is Rose comic strip. I hated that booger. I pick Villanova. Which does sound like it should be a band
Vanderbilt is where I want to complete my master's
USC - my high school boyfriend had a ratty old USC sweatshirt from his father and it was sooooo soft and comfortable. I loved that sweatshirt
Wisconsin - I feel bad for those buggers
GONZAGA! with crackers, makes a good meal
Georgetown - I don't like UMBC's acronym. Sounds like a snotty television cable station.

So, I think Indiana will trump Washington because people in Indiana are nicer to telemarketers than people in Washington.
Tenn will trump Oklahoma because no one should like musicals that much.

Kansas will beat Vanderbilt because Vanderbilt really is kind of a douchebag school, isn't it?
USC will beat Georgetown because that sweatshirt was just really, really comfy.

USC will beat Tennessee because....it's warmer in S California. I'm ready for winter to be over.


I picked Texas-Arlington because I just met a guy named Darlington, and he was nice.
Miss State - Oregon is where Heather moved for a year and we didn't speak. I don't like Oregon
MSU over Temple - well, it's MSU. I had a lot of good times there!
Oral Roberts is the worst name for a school ever. EVER. Had to pick Pittsburgh
Kentucky - the white people there are scrappier than the white people in Marquette, who strongly resemble eskimos
Cornell reminds me of corn rows, which are bad. Stanford for the win
miami because ummmmmm........just cuz
Texas over Austin Peay because I have that Come Back to Texas song stuck in my head

UCLA because their name is fun to say, it rhymes with sway, and that is the song we're dancing to at our wedding :)
A&M because The Best Little Wh0rehouse in Texas is one of my favorite musicals, and they won in that movie
Drake is a cool name. It doesn't go with "Gluth" though
San Diego - Heather's mother in law is weird, and she doesn't like her. Even though I think she is a sweet, clueless lady, I have to stick by my friend.
Baylor - perfect name for a basset hound
Xavier - sounds like Xander, who was one of my favorite characters in Buffy
Arizona over WV - I've never been to AZ. I've been to WV though.
Belmont - Belmont is the last main street on the way to get you, and it means I'll be seeing you in five minutes. Belmont means the work day is over and my family is together again

Miss State will beat Texas-Arlington because I am so mad at my ex
MSU over Pittsburgh because Pittsburgh has too many stairs. I hate climbing stairs
Stanford is going to beat Kentucky because they have more teeth
miami will beat Texas because again, I just got mad at my ex all over again
USLA - Say - Sway - We're getting married!
San Diego is also where the Chinese were given a deep water port. Yay! Clinton rules!
Baylor - now I kind of want a basset hound
Arizona - i made a really great mixed tape for my dad once. He played Miserlou over the CB radio for the rest of the convoy when they were driving through the painted desert. He says it remains one of the coolest moments in his life.


Now then I have to have MSU beating Miss State, and Miami beating Stanford, because because because because! because of the wonderful things they've done!
UCLA and Az will go head to head and UCLA will be the victor there easily enough

UCLA has more initials than USC.

Angelo Dundee Answered my question [29 Feb 2008|02:15pm]
[ mood | giddy ]

I am not the worlds biggest boxing fan but I am the last of dying breed I think that loves the sport and it's history in America, so the chance to ask a question to one of the greatest trainers of all time.... Yea I was really pumped when I say my name and question appear on the screen.

Bryan (Chicago, IL)
Would Ali ever have lost the title had it not been stripped from him? In other words could he have retired with the first belt he won?

ANGELO DUNDEE
I answer that very simply. We didn't see the best from Muhammed. Those years they took from him was a joke. He was fighting Floyd Patterson, I told him that I didn't think the government was going to let the fight go. He didn't say anything about it. He didn't have a negative thing to say about what those guys did.

Best admittal to a screw up ever, John Buccigros in this weeks mother of all mail bags: shot coffee all over the computer as I finished.:

I could say I was just naming two separate references, mutually exclusive of the other for effect, but I would be fibbing. Comparing Sheena Easton with Juice Newton is like comparing Mats Sundin to Peter Forsberg. Similar, but different. I feel shame.-john buchigros

I keep getting sucked in! [23 Jan 2008|03:59pm]
[ mood | surprised ]

Ok, So here's the thing, I keep getting sucked into the fads, I don't know how it keeps happening, but it does. Example from the very recent past (last night).

Derek (who is in town out of boredom) and I were going grocery shopping (you see I have really worked to cure the boredom thing) when he spots and EB Games.

Him "hey, lets go see if they have "guitar hero" for Wii.
me "ugh... really? "Guitar Hero"? fine, whatever"
Him "give it a chance"
me "fine, whatever"

so about 3 hours later with the RedWings game on my computer and everyone else in bed, Derek and I were jamming on the "Guitar Hero" (ok well Derek was Jamming I was barely scraping by). It sucks that I can no longer make fun of people for playing this, or like games, I was way up high on my pedestal feeling oh, so very superior and not really caring about the millions who found enjoyment in this, and quite comfortable mocking them. well... turns out I am now quite the ass... oh well. whatcha gonna do!

PS, another prime example, I wasn't geeked about American Gladiator "brother" (my fear was that they were gonna try to eliminate the Cheese factor and make serious, well as serious as you can make that) but now that I have watched it "brother", I think they ramped up the Cheese "brother" and now it is better than ever "brother". there four brothers in one sentance, take that Hulk Hogan....

It isn't fucking XMAS! [12 Dec 2007|11:18pm]
[ mood | aggravated ]

Man, society is in a constant downward spiral, it seems that every time I think that the leftys can't get more annoying they go right of there way to prove me wrong. Lately I have noticed that the holiday season is getting more an more holiday and less and less Christmas. Let us start with this little nugget of annoyance that has been driving me crazy for a while. Xmas isn't an abbreviation for Christmas, there is not abbreviation for Christmas, it is just Christmas, please notice the first five letter, CHRIST, the reason for the season? ringing any bells? It was bad enough when we had to start saying happy holidays instead of Merry Christmas, but now we have gone so far as to start eliminating Christmas all together. I am not trying to impose my religion on anyone here, nor am I trying to be an advocate for any particular religion but with a majority of the US poplulation being Catholic (and those are just the ones that can be counted legally) I think that having a Christmas tree, not a Magic Tree is just fine, I think that wishing someone a Merry Christmas is ok, I don't care if you don't celebrate it, believe in it, or are generally offended by the concept, it is what I, repeat I am celebrating. I assure you I won't be offended if you want to wish me a happy Kwanza, Hahnukka, Ramadan, or boxing day. I just do not understand why I have feel bad for my Celebration. And that is what it is, a celebration, of many many things, not the least of which is the birth of Christ, (I don't care if it is more likely he was born in the spring and the Winter Celebration was set to coincide with the pagan solstice so that early Christians wouldn't be prosecuted) I believe what I believe and I think it fair that on this one day you (all of Society) leave me alone and let me have my day, you have turned it into the mass Marketing, shopping extravaganza that fuels our economy for 3 mos. and I will live with that, but don't ask me to feel guilty for my beliefs, I refuse.

been a long time [17 Jan 2007|04:20am]
It has been a long time since I did this and I want to get back in the habit, things seem to be happening so fast that I am affraid things will start getting away. I hope this is a good catalyst for slowing them down some. I am not going to bother updating the world on what has been going on for the last six months, I will summarize with this: if you have never been depressed and lonely and questioned your self worth about fifty times a day, thank what ever God you pray to. I am out of it now, I am happy, I am back in sales and doing DAMN good at it. I have a renewed love of my life, my family, and in fact my God. The money is starting to come in, as in all real estate (in this case apartment rentals) the deal has to be closed and signed before I get paid but we are most definatly going to be ok. At this rate I will lead my office in rentals in my first full month, my boss loves me, the other agents seem to be ok, even though I am exceeding and raising expectations, and the owners are gratefull that have another person in the office who is willing to speak up. all in all, I am in a good place.

I have discovered a seemless loop between wishing ill on people and finding yourself in a the recipiant of some kind of ill yourself. I hate being lied to and God help the person who is willing to lie to, and hurt my family, Karma, God, Budah, whatever will come around and smite that person far more than I ever could and every day for the past month I have found myself thanking God that I was not in that persons debt. It is strange for me to feel nothing but contempt for a person, and an even harder thing when that person is someone who is/was important to the person most important to me in the world, I am glad that particular monkey is off my back and we can move on, move up, and begin to build a lifetime of wonder around us.

One last thought while it is rolling around my brain. My Dad always talked about how great my Mom's parents were to him... he had three strikes going against him when they met; 1. he was a city boy. 2 he was a democrat. 3. he was Catholic. I mean what more could they have had to disagree with, God, Politics, and society, they had every reason to hate the man and instead the took him in as a son, so much so that my grandfather offered my father his farm when he retired. I guess I just always assumed thats the way it would go for me. Perhaps it was nieve to hope that my mother and I could get along the way my father and his mother in law did, perhaps it was wishful thinking to believe that if the best intersts of the ones we cared about were what was kept in the front of our minds than we would have an immediate and mutual common ground. I am being a little bitter here, mostly because I honestly don't have a reason to dislike Sue, and if I am being honest with myself, it would be very hard for me to support a man/union with Isabel if the situation were to happen to here in 25ish years. All that being said it is a bridge I truly hope to mend in the near future, I don't want to put Natalie thru another holiday or even another visit back to Michigan like the one we had over Christmas.

WTF [22 Sep 2006|03:02am]
I haven't had anything to update about in a while and since nothing has really changed I am just writing to write, I am getting depressed and hoping that things start changing for the better soon, If they don't or i don't get anything going I am going to have to borrow money by the begginning of the week just to pay rent and buy groceries. I am tired and getting frustrated, I have blown at least one great opportunity, and haven't been able to find another, I wish there was a life answer button I would immediatly know what to do, or that people didn't lie and screw you around, or just plain fuck you over with a smile and nod. anyway, enough pouting, I just needed to get that off my chest.

So my brother is a funny man. new Icon soon to get deleted. but It will make posterity for this post. Nothing really new, working on getting a job and finding out how much going to school is going to cost me, it's about as bad as I expected. I really hate being up this early.

on the road again... [26 May 2005|04:21am]
well, the cable is transfered, the truck is reserved, money is set, laundry is getting done, and the kids are having a blast and pretty excited about the idea of having their own rooms. I have spent the last 5ish hours on logistics and now I am faced with the fact that I haven't packed a thing. i am hoping that I can get the key from our new landlord tonight and shuttle some of the cloths and kitchen stuff over tonight, although, moving the kitched stuff isn't that big of a priority since I don't have a stove yet. I am not exactly sure how we are going to be eat tomorrow night, but we shall think of something.

Natalie, is working tonight, I think I am gonna pull an allnighter and get as much of this stuff moved in my car as humanly possiable if the landlord is ok with that, that way I will only have furniture to move tomorrow and hopefully natalies dad will be able to help me with that otherwise Natalie and I will get it done when she gets home from work tomorrow. in the immortal words of Charlie Brown. GOOD GREIF!

I hate money [21 May 2005|12:00pm]
Star Trek promised a world without money and an honest search for higher purpose... seriously we are in the world 2005 now it is about time we start working toward that goal. So as it turns out our landlord sucks and we now have to move after having been in this apt for about 6 weeks, which means another security deposit and more apt searching, I am tired of apt searching. I will be glad when this phase is over, when we can begin to settle, no more trips to michigan every week, no more running around trying to get shit straight. argh!

I love being a dad, Isabel sitting on my lap the other day watching the basketball game with me was just the latest cherry on the whipped cream on the fudge on the carmel, on the ice cream... I love them so much I honestly hate being away from them.

OK enought lamenting, back to looking for a good and stable place to live.

Ok before we go anyfurther... Derek brought up and iteresting analagy this morning. based on jounal entries if Kelly and Alex ever dated it would be like Gatemaster meets Keymaster, PS I am gozor the destructot.

So riding home from the Emerald in the ice is fun. Just crusin along and all the sudden I see Derek start to spin, My mind races I am watching the people who could potentailly hit him (a supprising number for 5am on a saturday morning.) he avoids them all only to start going toward the wall of I 696. As my eyes follow Derek and see him safe, I notice that there are now headlights in front of me, this can't be good. I am coming up on the headlights prety quick, the freeway is all ice, I find the one dry spot on 696 and am able to pull to the right and avoid a head on collision. Gettin off to the side I call derek

Me: "so besides being scared shitless, you ok?"
Derek; "I think I am gonna need a change of pants since I just SHAT in mine."

Ahh I love michingan. no need for public transportation. EVER!

P.S. Peaches soaked in moonshine. best idea ever.

here we go again [10 Mar 2005|02:42pm]
I was fired from my job on tuesday. I knew it was coming but I really thought it would wait untill the last week of the month. Oh well as my father always says. "I was looking for a job when I found this one." whatcha gonna do, I will find something, I always do. I just hope I don't have to relegate myself to Wal-Mart for a while again. It doesn't seem like that is going to be the case, Natalie and I have discussed chicago on a very serious level. While the idea of leaving my family doesn't really appeal to me, the idea of starting something new really does. there is obviously alot more to it than that but those of the two biggest things weighing on my mind as it pertains to that descision.

Best vacation ever [03 Mar 2005|01:19am]
I must say that while the trip has been over for a few days, the overall vacation ended tonight, and it was great. fabulous. wonderful. amazing.

Chicago was great, from the hotel, to the music to the food and shopping it was just all around wonderful. Here a few of the highlights in no particular order (side note... all of these are recomendations for anyone considering a trip in the future.)

* House of Blues bar, Big James and the chicago Playboys were unreal.

* Redfish, the Trio playing at night was sweet, and the food during the day is just fantastic, I can't say enough about the food.

* Michigan ave and shopping, enough said.

* Andy's-- best jazz in chicago. small, so get there early, but wow, what music. the wall of fame of people that have cut there chops at Andy's is like a who's who of the jazz world, past and presant.

* Raiforest Cafe, alot of fun, something neat to do.

* Medeveal Times, a must for fun. pure unadulterated fun.

* MotherHubbards, a fun little sports bar, good nachos and fairly inexpensive beer.

* ESPN Sports Zone.... WOW

nothing like a weekend away, we had so much fun, I think that a trip like that is magnified in greatness when you are with someone you love.

Literally nothing new [11 Feb 2005|08:08pm]
Well, this is an update for the sake of updating let us not kid ourselves. I put in a call to an armenian realestate agent, I figure I will have a house in may or someone will have some broken legs, either way, ups for me.
Pistons floor seats tomorrow night, I have to admit this will be a first for me, and not just because I don't really care about basketball, pictures will be posted (with the help of Natalie and Derek, cause lets be honest I dont' even know how to change my font size color or style on this thing, I just type.)
I was really sick, I am over it, I really really have nothing else...

Puked up doritos in the front yard.... MMMMM!
