Planes, Trains, and Automobiles! [May. 2nd, 2018|08:44 pm]

Seattle and I had a fun weekend last week. April 28th and 29th 2018. We went and saw our awesome friends Chris Bess and Savannah Ford get married.

and we also went around Raleigh, and went on a few hikes. Here I am trying to lift weights at Yate's Mill. It was finally nice to have a weekend off where we didn't have to worry about a lot of things and got to relax. Until next time friends.

Exclusive limited time offer [Mar. 19th, 2018|01:40 pm]

So, my cool ass nephew named Bryson had a birthday this month. He celebrated it on March 11th. He turned 6 years old. As always, I normally work on the weekends at The Fresh Market, but that weekend I had off. My sister Drama Queen was going to throw him a birthday party. She decided to have it at a place called Dave and Buster's. (An adult version of Chuck E Cheese's) I went around asking some of my friend's at work if they wanted to meet me there, since I had no one to go with. But as the week went on, Seattle came to my rescue and went with me. So, on Sunday the 11th, G-Gordon Liddy picked us both up and we headed out to the party. Just to give you a quick update as well, G-Gordon Liddy texted me to see if I was working that day the 11th when the birthday was scheduled. My sister never called or texted me to ask if I was working that day. Anyways, we all get to Dave and Buster's and walk in. It was loud and crazy and never what I expected a place like that to look like. As we headed back to where the party took place, I saw Bryson and his friends eating and having a good time. Seattle and I walked past Drama Queen and John Deere and ran into Terrible Tara and her son. I had to play it cool and be nice. So, I said my hello's and headed to a booth to sit down. Seattle and I start to order, and by the end of our bill I couldn't believe how expensive this place was. They rip you off by charging you 2.00 dollars for a game card when you want to play 20.00 worth of video games. So, as the party went on, Seattle and I headed out to play a few games. I couldn't believe either the prices of them. A game of air hockey was 6.00. But it was worth it to play with Bryson and Seattle. Next I told my sister she needs to play skeet ball with me, believe it or not she did. That made me feel happy as well, even though we are trying to work out our differences. I also noticed that when you play skeet ball, tickets don't come out, they are added to your card and that you have to cash them out. What ever happen to going to old school arcades and putting 5.00 in the change machine and getting 5.00 in quarters back. Then going to the machine and playing it and receiving paper tickets. I guess times are a changing. But never again will Seattle and I go to Dave and Buster's again to eat. The food was sub par and the prices were over the limit. But I was happy to see my nephew so that was all that mattered.

Solving life's dilemmas since 1950 [Jan. 26th, 2018|05:58 pm]

So, last week North Carolina had snow. And of course, living down here for about 23 years, I've seen it all. Southern people who go into panic mode. All the schools shut down. People out and about trying to hurry to the grocery store to stock up on their eggs, bread and milk. It's insane! Anyways, Seattle and I enjoyed our day on Wednesday the 10th of January.We went outside and walked around and took some pictures. Here are some of the pictures that Seattle took that I thought you might enjoy.

Then after the snow came and went, the following weekend Raleigh's temps went up to 60. Other than that nothing new happening. My job is going well, I still love the people I work with. Everyone in my family is doing well. Bryson who I rarely see since he's been in school will be turning 6 in March. Still the funniest kid I know. I just got done celebrating my dog Duke's deathiversary on the 24th of this month. It would have been 10 years ago he passed in 2008. But like Seattle said, everything must pass. Hopefully this year will be better than the last. Oh wait, Trump is still president, never mind we are still fucked! Anyways, I will try and continue to write a little more. As for now, I want to shout out a very special Happy Birthday to BlueAardvark!

My heaven will be a big Heaven. [Nov. 15th, 2017|06:16 pm]

I don't know how to start this post, so here goes. I read my facebook like I read the newspaper every day. As I was scrolling through, one of my friends from my elementary school I went to up in New York posted that one of his friends passed away. So like I do, I just skip over it and think of nothing of it. Then as I read further down, I see some more posts from one of my other friends as well. I think to myself this can't be real, it must be some kind of joke. Well, comes out to find it wasn't a joke. One of my friends did die. Even though we went to school together and had the same classes, I wasn't really close friends with him. He had his own click and I had my own as well. His name was Chris Guido. (I know he sounds like your typically Italian) Plus a while back one of my other friends had died also, his name was Damion Storzieri. He died from a car accident. Both of these guys died so young at the age of 37. It's hard to say what happen to Chris. When reading his obituary, without crying, he died unexpectedly on Monday November 13th. I feel for his mom and dad and all of my friends. I also have a bit of an empty feeling inside me, but I know all of us growing up with Damion and Chris we will all have great memories to share. Love you guys!!

Oh my fucking God! Today was a great day at work! Around 3:30pm is our busiest time, and that is when all the office/ soccer moms get off of work or school. Plus it is Friday of course so that has a lot to do with it. Anyways, As I was scanning groceries for customers, I look up and see this tall guy with a black sweat shirt that says "Kill Dave Smith"and a blue stripe in his hair and two earrings and a nose ring. I couldn't believe what I just saw. My stomach was tied in knots and I was all nerved up. It was a once and a life time experience to see a filthy, dirty, comedian named Jay "Big Jay" Oakerson come through my line. I told him I loved everything that he stared in and that I was his biggest fan. He told me also that he was playing tonight at a comedy club that Seattle and I went to to go see Ornery Adams called Charlie Goodnights! After I checked him out I had to settle down and fan myself off cause it was really warm in the store. Here is a picture of what Jay Oakerson looks like. Anyways, other than that I also found 20.00 dollars on the floor today which some customer must have dropped. And Seattle and I have been together now for 12 years. Hard to imagine that we've tolerated each other for that long but in the long run we still love each other. That is it for now. If more news comes up I will let you all know. As for now have a good weekend!

Plastic eyes, lookin' through a numb skull. [Oct. 2nd, 2017|05:20 pm]

I don't know where to start with this post. So, I guess I will start by saying that I am getting really disappointed in my family as I get older. I love them to death for taking care of me when I was a kid, but now as I get older, I feel like all four us are drifting apart. Ever since my parents got a divorce back in 1999, they have been really bitter with each other. If I hang out with G-Gordon Liddy and I mention Mother Mary's name he has a total negative view on her, and if I mention G-Gordon Liddy's name to Mother Mary she also has the same point of view. It's like they are a bunch of little kids fighting over the most stupidest shit. My parents can't even sit in the same room together. Even if they did, I doubt that they would come to an agreement and talk civil to each other. They even have to call my sister Drama Queen and arrange a time when they can see my nephew. They can't see him together. I hate to bring this subject up too, but I am going to also. Ever since Drama Queen married John Deere, and moved out of Raleigh and to a suburb called Holly Springs and started her life out there to start a family, it's like she left everything behind. She got a new job and had my nephew which maybe once in a few months I see. See, I don't have a car, so I rely on G-Gordon Liddy or Mother Mary to go out and see him. I spend a few hours with him by talking to him about school or hanging out in his play room playing with legos. Drama Queen will eventually come to Raleigh on the weekends if she's in the area and visit G-Gordon Liddy for dinner or a visit or if she needs something. Never once has she once visited me. There have been times I've also texted her just to say hi and never got a response for several days. I know you might be busy, but once you get home you can say hey. When we were kids, my sister and I had a pretty good relationship, even though I was the oldest, I got in trouble, and she barely got in trouble, but in the end we loved each other. But now, it's like she is so wrapped up in her own little world that nothing matters but herself. Going back to my mom and dad, It has taken me years to work out my relationship with my mom, but I finally broke the ice. (thanks to Somedayseattle) It took me along time also to have a bond with my father also after moving to PA for a year and a half and then coming home and living with him and my sister. We all had to get along. As I almost reach the age of 40 I am scared and nervous that my communication with my sister is never going to change.

Be more Spontaneous! [Jul. 11th, 2017|10:55 am]

Back in May, Seattle and I decided to leave our jobs for a week and head out to Washington State for a stress free vacation. Since Seattle has been out there before, it came natural to him. As for me, this was my first time on the other side of the state. I have to tell ya, it was awesome. Now I know why they call Seattle the emerald state. It only rained for a couple of days out there, but the rest of the time it was sunny and beautiful. The humidity was low that you could actually breathe in the air, instead of in Raleigh,NC where the air is so thick that it sucks the life outta ya. Anyways, we went to a whole lot of fun places. Like the Seattle Aquarium, and to a Mariner's baseball game, we even fell asleep on at Gasworks park and looked over the Puget sound to see the ferries and sky line. I've noticed too, that Seattle has a lot of hills and people do a lot of walking, plus they ride their bikes everywhere. There is a lot of traffic but not as bad as if you lived in NYC. There aren't a lot of taxis, but there are a lot of buses. Now I understand why Seattle loved this city so much. There is so much to do. With only staying there a week we did a lot of walking and site seeing that I liked it so much that I didn't want to leave. But here are some pictures of our trip. Plus, just to let you know we ate like kings out there. The food is awesome.

Happiness comes from within. That’s why it feels good to fart. [Jun. 20th, 2017|12:40 pm]

So, here's a quick update. My favorite super hero (Batman) died Adam West a few weeks ago. I found out that my nephew Bryson is not having a new brother and sister. :( My sister Drama Queen called me a few weeks ago and told me when she went to have her ultra sound at 10 weeks she found out that there was no movement and she had a miscarriage. So she was very depressed. But enough of the sad news, did I tell you how much I love my job and the people I work with. Well, I do. I've now been with The Fresh Market for a year now, and my boss John Wes Craven came up to me one day last week and told me in a little jingle that I got a raise. He told that I am always busting my ass and helping out whenever help is needed, and that he was going to try and hook me up. I didn't know whether to give him a hug, shake his hand or jump up and down. I was so happy that I had to control my excitement. Once my shift was over, and left happy and when Seattle came home, I told him all about it. He was so happy for me. I even told G-Gordon Liddy the last time we hung out together. That's it for now. I will get back to you again soon about our trip.
