So another wrestlemania has come and gone. It was a fun year with a good turnout and buffalo chicken dip.. So much buffalo chicken dip.

Jill was the winner of our predictions poll. I was proud of my babe. I love how she takes interest in the things I like to do, even if they are completely dorky at times.

Her and I are going to be looking at apartments shortly, possibly with her cousin. I'm very curious to see how living together will be as it could be the ultimate decider on if she's the one. (side note: I already know she is)

I've got more to talk about maybe later.

Rock bottom!

So, the countdown to the Super Bowl of wrestling is nearing it's end. I'm officially in over excitement over it. Even non-wrestling fans can find something to like within the event. Joe's shown videos to friends of ours in the past and they were captivated. I plan on being captivated come Sunday.

I had dinner at my dad's last night with Jill, Zack, Rachel, Tina (Zack's girlfriend), my dad and Anne. It was a delicious meal and we had a fun time.

Earlier in the day, we had fun teaching Grant a lesson. That lesson being what happens when you ride in the back of a U-Haul. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cM0l6avV90&feature=feedu Feel free to check it out. The banter, at least to me, is real fun. Oh, and the one part where I freak out, some idiot woman walked out in front of my U-Haul (while we driving at about 45 miles an hour), with her stroller. Great parenting. All it would have taken was a split second of me not paying attention and her child would have been roadkill. Grant freaks out at the same time because I had to swerve to miss her. And that was with paying full attention.

Working the rest of the week, but come Sunday, it's time.. IT'S TIME... IT'S WRESTLEMANIA TIME TIME TIME TIME!

So, Zack found my old hockey cards lying around the house and gave them to me. I went online and found out today they are worth just about squat. Granted, they're bound to go up in value as I get older. I mean, we're not that far away from the 90's just yet. I mean, technically I've made my money on them. I have a couple of Jagr rookie cards that are now worth $4.00 each and came in packs of 10 that originally cost me 2 dollars, so yeah there is some silver lining.

I have the greatest girlfriend. It's an amazing thing. She surprised me with a variety of items she bought from a store just for me! Including some pretty awesome peppermint tea. Sometimes, I realize she spoils me rotten and just hope I can do the same in return for her. Our one year is coming up in less than two months and it seems as if the game plan includes sushi and Robin F'ing Williams. Heck yes!

Work has been good lately. Despite fighting crippling stomach pains, the staff has been very amazing and have made it easier to focus on other aspects of my job.

Picking up a new computer desk tomorrow. Heck yeah. Gonna love it.

And yes, from now on, my posts here will be cross promoted on Facebook.

And if you're not down with that, I got two wooooords for ya!

Too Bad!

Yes, indeed, two days in a row of posts from yours truly.

Today's a very strange day for me. I'm doing something (that I can't quite mention) that I have very mixed feelings about. On one hand the end result is very nice and will save me a good amount of money but the feeling of loss that will come with it is pretty hurtful. More on this later on.

My stomach is completely killing me today. It's unrelated to the stress above. I recently strained a muscle in, well, let's just say an area that's pretty uncomfortable. The medication I'm on for it says "If this medication upsets your stomach, take crackers"... I'm calling bullshit on that one. That didn't work at all. And the crackers weren't all that great.

It's also laundry day. I very special day Jill and I spend together where we get together for some wet, hot, rolling around laundry time. Heck yes. I'm in more need of clean clothes right now than I'm comfortable saying.

Outside of that, things are looking good for this day off assuming I get this stomach ache to go away.

Have a great day all.

After 3 Long Years... [Mar. 25th, 2011|12:43 pm]

[mood |nostalgicnostalgic]

Finally...

No, didn't like that....

Finally!

...::shakes head::

FINALLY THE ANDY HAS COME BACK TO LIVE...JOUR...NAL!



So, I'll just cut to it. Things have changed once again. It's almost strange that I brought back into this whole swing of things. I guess I'll start with what I always do when I do one of these "Long time, no see" type of posts. I was surprised to see that some of my friends are still going strong after all this time.


1. I'm actually still with the company I last wrote about here, Jefferson's Ferry. Though I am still a supervisor there, I have recently began working there in the independent side of the building as opposed to healthcare. There was no real underlying reason. It was plain and simply a chance to learn something new. I figured, the more you know, the more of an asset you become to the company you work with.

2. After all these years, I'm still close friends with Joe, Chris, Grant and Jay. Most of that has remained unchanged. Sadly, I've lost others along the way. It's funny, reading back on old posts, there are a lot of people I wish I still got to see from time to time, other people I really wish I had spent more time with in the short time I kept in contact with them and even more that I wonder "What the fuck was I thinking hanging out with this person?!". Live and learn, I suppose.

3. My dad and Anne are still together. My last few posts made it seem like Anne and I didn't get along too well, which was the case when they first started dating, but now we are pretty close. She's a great cook and an even better person.

4. Those are the three main things I can think of that are still the same after all this time. Now, I'll start with what's new...

5. First off, not sure why that deserved it's own number.

6. That one too.

7. ...Ah crap...

8. OK, seriously, moving on. I've met a new girl (sadly this seems to be a ongoing thing with these posts several years apart. Her name is Jill. I've taken a real liking to this one. As I get older, I've finally started honing in on what really will make me happy in the future. When I first met her, I really felt that this was it. She's yet to have me think otherwise. I hate to say something that she said first but, she and her are very similar, but different enough to keep things interesting. We play really well off of each other. It doesn't hurt that she's also incredibly beautiful, smart and funny (An incredibly hard to find trio of items to find in a girl, or anyone really). I really love her. :)

9. There's one thing I saw posts of me wanting to do while reading old things that I actually did succeed on. No, not a band :P, but I did in fact share an apartment with Joe. Unfortunately, as our two year lease comes to and end, it will also be the end of about a three year span I have done so. We've had a lot of fun times (as well as some times where we probably wanted to kill one another) and it really has been fun.

10. Speaking of Joe, check out his YouTube post on Dragon Age 2 if you haven't. He's finally found his niche as a game review guy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AlVeg1wm8Lo Please check it out if you haven't already.

11. Jay is still in the Air Force. He's met what I can assume is the love of his life given what they'll be doing soon (if you know what I mean). She's a great girl. I really treasure the time I get to spend with both of them when they are able to visit. it's nice to have the guys back in full from time to time.

12. Grant's still Grant.

13. My family has changed a lot over the course of the last few years. Not in terms of new births or passings (although I have since my last time on hear lost my Nana. She will be missed but she was blessed with a long healthy life and a lot of great memories). I'm talking about locations and what not. My mother (whom I haven't been speaking with due to the fact that she very well might be crazy), has moved to Florida and lost contact with most of us since. Ryan has just very recently moved to Florida as well, but has yet to find an apartment to my knowledge. My dad and Anne now house my little (well, not that little anymore) sister. Zack is very oddly enough living by himself in our old house for now. It's incredibly strange. The house is for sale and I guess he's just keeping it warm until the house is sold or taken over by the bank. It's all kind of weird really. I worry about him.

14. Speaking of Zack, I'm actually his supervisor now which is all sorts of fun. I try not to abuse my power, honest. I've very proud of how he works. He's an asset to the company and I'm not just saying that because he's my brother.

15. Wrestlemania is coming up. April 3rd. I know. I know. Yes, yes, I'm still into wrestling. I can't help it. I don't watch it with the same enjoyment as I had in years past, but it's still something I enjoy tuning into every so often. Or every Monday and occasional Sunday. If anyone reading this would like to come, please feel free to drop me a comment and I'll happily add you to this list for a small nominal fee of either some money towards the event or some chips and dip. Speaking of wrestling, I also went to my first indie show. It was really fun. I went with Chris, Grant and Joe. We had a blast. X-Pac, Billy Gunn, and The Road Dogg were there. It was fun seeing DX... Even if it was a few years after their prime.

I'm going to try to write (or type) in here more frequently from here on out. Looking back at my past, it made me glad I was writing back then and it's something I'd like to go back to. Truth be told, I'm kind of surprised the site is still running. I'm lucky though because it is a great way to look back at the things I've done.

So, I hope you all enjoy the return of the...

Heheh. It's been a long time since I've posted here. Truth is, I forgot the password. Then just forgot it existed. Joe's livejournal posts alone is what has brought me back from retirement. That and remembering I changed it when I changed my AIM password..... to my AIM password. I know, intelligent move.

Anywho let's give whatever might be left of my readers a bit of an update. I'll attempt to refrain from the numerical form I use normally for these. Really because it was too much of a pattern.

After buying Rock Band back at release time, I've been heavily (well, heavily for someone that has a job and doesn't want to wake up the landlord) on becoming good on the drums. I've succeeded. After about 4 months (on and off because of the releases of GTA4 and Super Smash Bros. Brawl) I can now complete a majority of the songs on expert mode. It's not easy, and I still suck horribly at timing the drum rolls right. That and after three or four foot pedal heavy songs, my foot gives way.

Jay's gone off to the military, leaving me to get questioned by a guy from the military about Jay. "Do you have any thing that you could use to blackmail your friend Jason if you wanted to?" "Yeah, his choice in women.".... Zing. PS, that really did happen.

Joe's moving on up in the world. Over the past few weeks I've seen him go from the bottom on up. And I gotta give him credit. He's easily the best at approaching and flirting with strangers. Grant and I had to give him a big thumbs up for that.

Speaking of Grant, he's.... Well, he's Grant. That's the one constant in my life.

Work is going well. I no longer work at BJ's. I've become a supervisor at Jefferson's Ferry in the dining department. I love the fact that my job title is longer than it really needs to be. "Health Care Dining Services Supervisor". Big euphemism for "Food Man"....I had funnier jokes for that in my head, I swear.

Long story short, I make sure meals run smoothly, yell at staff for slacking off or not coming in, and do mounds of paperwork until my hands fall off. Sounds not fun, but the pay is. On a serious note though, it's the first job in a really long time that I've had that I must say I'm really truly proud of. And I don't get to say stuff like that often.

Other news, going to a WWE pay-per-view. Looking forward to it. July 20th. Great American Bash. 6th Row! Wooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!

It's sad, I really should have more to say in this post, but I'm totally out of ideas. Then again, I'm exhausted. So, maybe that's it. Hope to see that this gets read at least once.

Long time passing [Aug. 17th, 2007|07:31 am]
Andyman
[mood |tiredtired]

It's been a long long time since I've even looked at this thing. The worst part is the realization that my life has gone nowhere and everywhere at the same time. It's hard to explain but I'm sure plenty will have a "Been there" or "There with you" attitude about it. And that's fine. I'm not trying to be special.

New girlfriend (though this is really old news to those that know me personally, it's new news here). Together for a year and half. I've more than doubled my old record. And yet every day still scares me more than the last....The "Could this be it?" mentality. The fact that she once refered to us as "Practically married" made me realize how unready I am for committment despite staying with her for so long. It kind of humored me. The one thing I always wanted is now the one thing I can't help but want to run away from. Ironic.

It's not even her. There's nothing wrong with her. Well, nothing wrong to the point that would drive me to do that. I mean, yeah, everyone has their quirks, but that's part of life. I'm sure I have traits that would make any girl a little irrated just as much. We've both admitted to each other that the other person does a few things that piss us off.

I think it's more the thought. I got so used to losing girls that it became part. I started looking forward to being that single and 30 guy. Like that show Friends....Hahah. I say it like no one's ever heard of it before.

We moved in together. If you've ever wanted to know the meaning of that phrase "What doesn't kill you makes youu stronger.", this is it. It has strengthened us but at the same time has brought us so close to killing each other a few times. The kind of times where the only thing that stops you is that one episode of CSI you saw.

Our apartment is coming together. We've been living together for a long time, but it is only now coming together. Within the next two weeks we're having a sectional couch, glass end table, nice wooden coffee table (I add the word nice because people think the worst when they think of wooden furniture), a 52 inch Sharp Aquios 1080p tele, and a glass stand for it. That's the bragging portion of this post.

Of course, all of this comes at a price. For me, a second job. Working at an old age home...albeit, a very luxurious one.. I spend half my time working a register in the cafe, and the other half waiting tables. It's a very love hate job in that I love the register (free soda and pizza and an easy job), and hate waiting (I just am terrible at balancing things right now). The job itself in full is fine. It's a lot better than BJ's. People around my age are a fun crew. We all get along. To the point where there's massive butt grabbing action in the kitchen. I was seriously thrown off the first time one of the girls grabbed mine...Even more thrown off the first time a guy did. Seriously, it's like a handshake to them...I still haven't gotten used to it. And, with the girlfriend in mind, still haven't grabbed any myself. Just sheepishly laugh like I've always done at times like these. The times haven't changed.

I was smart enough to schedule the days off from both jobs on the same two days. This way I get full days of rest rather than bits and pieces here and there. The outcome has been 16 hour snoozefests on Tuesday and Friday....Usually followed by binge drinking and another snooze before the cycle starts over again.

Speaking of drinking, I'm going pro. On a good night (read "a night that I have food in my system"), I can outdrink any of my friends. And, as much as I probably shouldn't mention this, still drive them all home after the fact. In fairness, I have given up my keys twice because I was smart enough to know I was too drunk to get the job done. The other times have never ended in any danger, whether it be in the form of a cop, curb or other vehicle. I know my limits. And that's important. As I've learned, Grant still needs to learn his.

I'm also, to my surprise, the only guy among my friends (or at least the ones I drink with) who's personality virtually stays the same while drinking. I become louder, but that's about it. And when I say louder, I just mean in tone, not attitude. Then again, maybe that's just because bars are loud. But, I've seen freinds get angry, depressed, fight, get overly excited...It's nuts. I drink and just enjoy the social aspect of it. That's it. It's not an emotion changer. Unless I get sick (which hasn't happened as long as food in my system rule applies). Then my mood changes to "I fucking hate puking. This sucks......Ahhh, now I feel better". I've even realized I think the same while drinking. Like, in my head, I can still do math equations, remember old songs (which has become my favorite thing to do while at work), and other odd things that I can only do while deep in thought. I used to just get drunk and stupid. I hated that. When I can't think, be it because of alcohol or any other reason, it frustrates me.

For the record, I have no clue where this post is heading. It started with a point, but it's ending in proof that I should be on Ritalin.


Actually, I think I covered most of the bases for now. Based on how much, or even if, this post gets read by others, I might start making a comeback on here. And if I remember correctly, you're used to me ending these on some silly note, so uhm... Yeah


Read my journal entries or I'll killy my puppy........I'll do it!

Transformation. [Apr. 1st, 2007|08:43 pm]
Andyman
So, it happens again. Another break up. I'm not too sure where this one came from, to be honest. I've honestly gotten to the point where I just don't care any more. After talking wtih friends I've really decided I'm just too young to care about breaks and break ups and all that fun stuff.

Still, yet, the lonliness of the whole situation has changed me. I've gone back to writing and my writings are more morbid then they've ever been. I'll be honest, reading over some of it, it's quite possibly the best stuff I've ever written despite the tone of it. Then again, I'm someone that believes the best writings come from pure emotion.

The newest project I'm working on is a screenplay involving the events leading up to a school shooting. I've got it worked down to be very interesting in that you develop feelings for the anti-hero, so to speak. As you watch him go through his school years with seemingly everything and everyone coming down on him. That's what my goal is with this screen play. To make people care about someone that will end up becoming the antogonist in the eyes of the rest of the fictional characters involved. I want to see how people would react to someting like that. Developing feelings for a character and then watching that character become the "antogonist".

Besides writing, my other crutch as of late has been drinking. I went through a period where 4 out of 5 days I went to bed drunk. Go alcoholism. It's not neccisarily something I'm happy about, but it sure does help. Oh, note to self for everyone out there. Don't drink an entire thing of Southern Comfort and then chase it down with a bottle of Jack Daniels. It was fun at the time, but the next morning kicked my ass. But the beginning and middle parts were amazing.

I've realized my aspirations as of late. Like, my life goals. Not my career goals. See, my career goals is to get into a career that is math-based (accountant, statistician, etc) and make a bit of cash. But my life dream is to open up a coffee and comedy club. I've loved stand up my entire life. It's something I've gone to in the worst of times. Abbott and Costello helped me get through some bad break ups. I mean, who can help but laugh at the Who's on First skit? And the coffee. Anyone that knows me personally knows I make coffee that could put Starbucks out of business in a heartbeat with the right approach. And it's cheaper! I'm talking 2 dollars a cup cheaper. Of course, at the comedy place, it'd cost a bit more, but it's for the experience that you'd soak in. And of course, night shows would include Irish coffees and things to that extent. There'd be theme nights. I'm toying with them being Monday-Fridays. Reasons to come during the week.

Monday - Imrov Night
Tuesday - Teams night (Comedy duos, trios, etc. Slovin and Allen, Abbott and Costello. Acts that fall under that kind of deal)
Wednesday - Price Is Right Style (The best concoction ever. No line-up for the night. Every audience member gets a name tag and has a chance to be called to the stage. If they do come up and do succeed in cracking up the audience, they drink for free that night. "John Smith, COME ON DOWN! AND YOU BETTER BE FUNNY"
Thursday- Music night (Musical Comedians will have the chance to perform this night. Stuff that would fall under the Tenacious D/Stephen Lynch category)
Friday - Insult Night (This is a big night. Everyone's done with their week of work/school/college and what better way to spend the night then getting with a few friends and hoping you're not the one that gets totally made fun of)

Saturdays and Sundays would run as usual. Regular comedians taking the stage for what will be the more attendable shows.

During the day, when people might just be stopping in for a cup of coffee, instead of stand up on stage, we'll have stand up playing from televisions. Comedians will start on stage come 6 or 7 at night. and go until the audience is sick of laughing. Heheh.

The name for this coffee place. Grinds and Giggles. If that goes over well and I put Starbucks out of business, I'll open up a Hoagies and Haha's to combat Subway. Heheh.

Yeah. That's it for now. I've got more to talk about but I need to get to work.

(no subject) [Dec. 4th, 2006|07:49 am]
Andyman
So, there's a bunch that could be said at the moment. And I'll try to say as much of is as I possibly can think of. It's time, once again, for an Andycapped Replay. Let's start the count up.

1. Turned 21. Pretty happy about it. Didn't get IDed once. That was bothersome. In fact. Didn't get IDed until Thanksgiving. Bothersome, but whatever. I waited till I was 21 to attempt to purchase it, and now I can. That's all that matters. Besides. Not big on drinking anyway. Okay, maybe I am a little bit, but I'm no alcoholic.

2. Settled a lot of things with exes, it seems. A few of them and I have seem to come to terms on a lot of things, and possible friendships might persue. We'll see. I dunno. It was just something that needed to be done. Setting things right in my life.

3. Was on the recieving end of three fabulous stitches in my right ring finger after glass EXPLODED by me. I was cut a few places, but only one was deep. Go work. I can now literally say that I've lost blood, sweat and tears over my job. The tears are tears of yawning...for the record.

4. New digital camera! wooo! Same one I bought an ex girlfriend for her birthday back when we were dating. It's a good one and I knew I could trust it well.

5. Bought and sold a broken PSP in a matter of three days. Just a random tidbit, I suppose. I normally wouldn't have bought it, but this guy was selling it with a whole bunch of extras for only 200. Funny enough, I made about $250 selling it to Gamestop.

6. Enjoyed my Thanksgiving playing video games with my younger brother and doing shots of Jager with my father. How crazy is that?

7. Missed all my friends when they came home from college. Joe, Natalie, Asian Jay just to name a few.

8. Which reminds me. Asian Jay. If you read this. I'm not angry at you or trying not to be your friend. I don't know where that thought came from, but seriously dude, it's all in your head. You're still cool with me. And for the record, that girl I went on that ONE date with that you happened to know. I didn't even knew you knew her. So relax about it. "Do you know Asian Jay?" is just not an ice breaking question of mine.

9. Hangouts with Jay and Grant, despite not being as often as they once were, have been so much funner as of late. I have no clue why, either. Grant and Jay do agree though. I dunno. It's good to have that bond with them again. I consider those two like brothers to me.

10. Lastly, and not leastly. I met someone. On Black Friday of all days. Her name's Nicole and she's absolutely perfect in every way, shape and form. And even odder, she thinks I'm perfect too. I do believe in like at first sight. Heheh. Strange tidbits about her:

a. We have very similar family structures. She's the oldest of 4 siblings as am I. And we both have a 10 year old sister.

b. Her next in line (as of age) sister looks older than her. The same with me and my brother.

c. One of her friends who's at FIT (which is interesting in a different sense) is the girl who's been talking with Grant online for months.

d. She lives about a block away from where I played hockey growing up.

e. The big thing. We have the same birthday! A year apart, but the same birthday regardless.


So, yeah. that's it for now. More to come when more happens.

Thanks for tuning into this important news bulletin. We now return to your normal scheduled viewing.
