What’s going on blog? Hope you are enjoying this steady diet of random thoughts. I’m looking forward to this weekend! Are you reading this?

Not much going on. I think the stupid twitter site has killed a lot of my intention to write blogs these days as many of my quick thoughts are just punched out onto that site and never make it here. But then again, not every quick thought needs to have its own entry when it can be punched thru in 140 characters or less. The past week I’ve laid off the tweets a bit which I think is a good thing. No need to tweet everything. Etc. So add that with the fact that 90% of my twobs.com activity occurs on our message board, the blog is left with a very undeserving 10% of input.
Other than that the big story in Albany right now is the filming of a car chase scene for the movie Salt. We can sorta see a lot of what they are doing from our office windows on the 15th floor downtown, but it’s not like we can really tell what’s going on. It was funny earlier to look out and see a whole roll of cars getting ready for whatever, see them all start to move and then a minute later, see them all reverse back to where they started. Sure, I get it, you NYC or Hollywood folk see this type of stuff all the time, but this stuff doesn’t happen all the time in Albany, NY… so it’s a big story today.
Other than that not much really going on this weekend. Electronics Recycling Day tomorrow, hope to get rid of an old TV and old computer monitor, maybe some other junk too. Suppose I’ll dip into some NFL Draft here and there as well as some playoff NBA action. Not much else going on. It is what it is.
Okay so what, so I am thinking about it already.. Whatever. Here’s the thing. I’ve got no plans. She’s going away from Sat Morning to Mon Morning…. so… what am I going to do?
I’m open to travel, but not more than 100 miles.
I’m open to have visitors, but no one wants to visit me.
I’m open to drive in to Albany, but what is there to do?
So… anyone have any suggestions? Anyone want to come visit me? Anyone care?

It’s Friday and that’s a good thing. Got a lot on the plate but it’s no big thing. Doing this doing that and doing it well. Well, to the best of my knowledge. But anyway… Not much on the docket for the weekend. Possible trip to Vermont. May have to postpone that a couple weekends since I am just not feeling like traveling this weekend. Sara is off to Boston this weekend for a girls weekend with Stella and Theresa. Coolness. Everything else is copesetic on my front.. What’s shaking on your end of town?
I’m so taking a mental health day Monday. Wish I could just turn around from here, but I already made it this far.
I have a feeling if we just automatically made every weekend a 3-Day event, we would still have issues on Tuesdays returning to work.
It wouldn’t matter.
So we can either just…
a) do away with work
b) make it a 5 day weekend and a 2 day work-week
c) or just leave it as it is, suck it up and deal, and be rewarded every now and then with a 3 day weekend
Yeah buddy.. and it feels like I’m wearing my back to school clothes. Went shopping over the weekend and got new sneakers, 3 new slacks, 4 new tops.. and I’m on the pathway to an updated warddrobe for the first time since 2003. Yeah buddy.
Another CMP situation with everything. Going grocery shopping after work. Tried to go to DMV yesterday to take care of things, but it was just a mess. We didn’t have all the paperwork we needed, but we were glad we didn’t in a way cause while we were in line they made an announcement that their computers were down so I bet anything I got that we would have sat there til 6pm and they still wouldn’t have been able to help us out. Oh well.. Next time we’ll leave work earlier and just pump it out. I gotta take care of figuring out the insurance thing and I gotta order the taillight part for my car like ASAP..
Before I type my next thought let me preface it with saying that my weekend philosophy is to just relax. Some weekends have definitive plans, some do not. I don’t want to spend every weekend-all weekend accomplishing tasks that can only be done on the weekends. With that being said, I have a million things I want to do this weekend and every weekend, but I’d rather just relax. There’s a fine line, and I’m working on finding it.. but yeah— that’s where I’m at with that.
What a sicky week… but thankfully… here we are it’s FRIDAY time!
My little sister Colleenie is on here way down from the Adirondacks to visit us for the weekend. We are going to have a rocking good time. Tonight Greg’s band Firefighter Font is playing up in Saratoga. We’ll most likely check that out and it will be our first time collectively seeing them play. Her friend Kate is driving in tomorrow and we have loose plans to do various activities throughout the weekend. Should be a grand ole time!
We went on a shopping spree at Bed Bath and Beyond yesterday and bought the following items and more if I don’t remember everything. Another 45 piece set of silverware (Oneida – Icarus). We got one set for our wedding but figured we should get another set now before it’s impossible to find our set and then we have more than 8 forks, spoons, etc.. That wast he big ticket item. We got a new silverware thing to actually put them in. We also got a bed dust ruffle/skirt thingy (Nautica-Highland) to match our new duvet cover, etc. We got a new mattress cover. Let’s see. We got 4 new towels (2 light green, 2 light blue) and matching hand towels and wash clothes. I got a new coffee mug. We got a couple empty spice containers for our new spice rack (red pepper wasn’t one of the spices it came with, and will be subsequently substituted in for one of the ones we don’t use often). We got a few flat cooking pans. We got a bread loaf sized pyrex glass pan. We got a stainless steel plunger thingy for the bathroom. I think that was it, but there was possibly a few more items, but anyway… I won’t even talk about the insane ordeal of trying to return a broken item and the annoyance we had in dealing with it.. but anyway..
Onward and Upward… Happy Friday everyone and enjoy the weekend!
Then why does it feel like Tuesday?
I’m heading out of town tonight back to WNY to hang with my family and a few friends along the way.
I’m excited to get out of town, and I mean really out of town!
The Weekend is a wonderful thing. I haven’t had one in almost 3 years and I am finally glad to have it back!
I’ll be going to Gloversville tonight for a healthy dose of electricity. Izer will be born and my brain will become scattered by Mr. Oblivious. I probably won’t say hello to Jose even after I runaway from Doink. You’ll rock while I rock, but we’ll all be rocking the mesa out. It will feel like summer, so i’ll probably jam in the wind but hopefully no one gets a concussion. I could even cross paths with the elusive gypsy squirrel man-woman. I still haven’t figured out what patterns will arise from Bob Jones deciding to come or not. I’m not oblivious, yet I don’t think that 5 is exactly normal. I’m not the slime but I will join you for a subterranean tea party. Tomo might even show. That mountain lion Karibe will probably even try to swim across Echo Lake to feed on some lemmings. Phil’s guitar will probably need a backwash Saturday morning while we all laugh and dance around a fire.
When: Tonight and Tomorrow
Where: Gloversville and Echo Lake
What: Cafe Zacquor and Springfling 3
Why: why not
Here I am. Back in the office after a five-day extended weekend…..
Gotta get busy now…
Might have more later.
Man. I really hate friday afternoons. Well, I like them. But as far as work is concerned, I dislike them. I’m never in much of a mood to want to get much done on friday afternoon. I would go as far as to say, i’d work an hour or so extra every day so that I could always get Friday afternoons off. But thats never going to happen. So I’ll suck it up again and deal with it. Get some things done etc. I’m going to Plattsburgh with Rezi tonight and tomorrow we’ll hang out and hopefully I’ll kick someone’s ass at Madden, then later head down to Albany for a Mardi Gras part with some other bands (Unexplained Bacon, Scarecrow Collection, Jerkwater Ruckus, and some others).. Fun times. Time to call Spunk to see when these cats are coming through.
Falcons win! 27-13 against Dallas. Great game for the team. Positive motivation and proof that we don’t need Vick to win. Keep up the good work boys. Next week we play the Skins.. Should be fun! Griffith was very impressive in his nfl debut at fullback. Nice!
Last night was fun, we went to an engagement party in Cooperstown for Jeremiah Brown and his fiance Candice. It was cool. I got to see a lot of my swimmer friends from college that I had not seen in quite some time including Sloan, CJ, Tanaka, and Erika. We had fun. Then we drove back to Saratoga around 10pm and went out with Joanna and Ed. That was also fun. I was very tired. I slept until 1 today.
Friday Night Rezi played the Carriage House at Beardslee Castle. It was great. They played with another band and all the sets sequed into each other’s sets. It was cool how they did that. Basically the music never stopped all night. Fun times. It was my sisters first Rezi show. It was a late night, and it required driving home very late at night. I got back by 4 AM.
9/5/03 Beardslee Castle Little Falls NY
1. Backwash -> Urraca Mesa -> Rock Out -> Doink, Breakbeat, Jose Cuervo, Concussion -> Jam^
2. Tomonari, Electrical Storm, Bob Jones, Mr Oblivious, Bite My Tongue, Ned’s Tune -> Jam^
^members of Jerkwater Ruckus joined Rezi and the music smoothened into the Ruckus sets.
Show contained interlocking sets with Jerkwater Ruckus
So in other words. The streak continues. This weekend was about 300 miles.
Saratoga > Little Falls > Saratoga > Cooperstown > Saratoga
Wow, my good friends Kelly and Brian are getting married today in Rochester NY. Unfortunately I couldn’t make it because of my current vacationless status at work. Sara is on her way as we speak in her new wheels. I thought about calling in sick, but didn’t feel comfortable about doing that. Tonight, I’m heading to Gloversville to check out Rezi. It’s going to be wild. Not concentrating to well right now. I found a cool new forum — Terrapin Almost Pizza Time!
The Weekend is over, it never lasts as long as you want it to and it always ends before you are ready. But that’s just the way it is. On friday wee looked at a place on Park Street in Saratoga. We decided on Saturday after looking at one other spot that we wanted it and now we are just waiting to hear back from the lady. Saturday we drove to Newburgh and back so Sara could borrow her grandmother’s-Kate’s soon to be white car. It’s a boat but it certainly helps her get to and back from work this week. Sunday we drove up and down route 50 and stopped at all the car shops to see what was available. We found about 20 good cars but almost all of them are probably out of her and i’s price range. The Lakers won to tie their series with Minnesota, that’s good. Not much else. I leave for Vegas tomorrow, I’m about to get my project done before leaving, so that’s good. Rock and Roll.
Man, It has been so nice outside the past few days it makes it so hard to concentrate on what’s going on inside. Tonight i’m going to Beardslee Castle in Little Falls to see REZI and I’m looking forward to that. It’s going to be sweet, here is a picture of the place from their site.
I somehow misplaced my cell phone charger last weekend, no clue, so I broke down yesterday and bought a car charger for it. The damn thing was dead so it hadn’t worked for a few days, but now its up and running with 2 out of 3 bars of juice. Tonight I’ll be able to juice it all the way with this drive to LF. Looking forward. Will also be watching the Syracuse basketball game. Peace
It is nice outside, but you and I both know that it’s going to last that long. I’m thinking two, maybe more, snow storms before we get to summer. I did some work last night on the rezi site last night. I still don’t think the design is quite there yet, but its closer. I like the white background right now better than the black but that could all change. I don’t know. I’m keeping it simple. If anyone has any ideas, feel free to share. Spent last saturday transferring over the cafe zacquor show and then splitting the tracks and uploading to the site which is also available for download through that link above. The show was real good and I’m going to write something up on it, it just takes me forever to do things. Other than that, I need to get back to my real-paid-work now so I’ll see you on the flip…
So here we are in the evening. I think sleep is going to be my next order of business. Maybe a little reading. This weekend will be Brian’s crash experiment with CSS, I’m looking forward to that. Tomorrow night I’m going to go see Rezi at Cafe Zacquor in Gloversville. It’s going to be a great show, but Friday I will be tired at work. I will get a lot done though. I have a major project that needs to be pushed out. It’s a real beast. Gotta love it.
