Bottled up inside

I appologize for the gap between blogs again. I really do keep meaning to update more often. Everytime I get on track to do so, somthing comes along and scres it up. There has been alot going on in my life recently and frankly work has been hellish.

There is however somthing I have been meaning to discuss. I have some time this afternoon so I thought it was time.

I can let loose and be a pretty crazy gy. But for the most part when it comes to dealing with anyone except my closest friends I like to present myself as a prefessional, well manered and respectable person.

SO when something awesome happens, that is totally brag and show off worthy, that would amaze, infatuate, and impress people I get put into a bit of a pinch. I WANT to brag, I want to make people jealous, but at the same time i don't want to be a jerk. What I have to brag about is not really all that appropriete to just go around talking about to just anybody. Some of the things i want to talk about would distress/disgust/upset people, and would deffiently make them look at me differantly...and maybe like me less. I actualy have only 2 people that I am able to brag to. One I barely ever talk to 'cause the O Dogg is always busy working on the road.

Its like I am 2 people. Now I know everyone has differant sides., but mine are like night and day.
Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde if you will.

I AM a wild and crazy person who has some insanly crazy adventures who does things that many people don't even think of. and I do things that others consider "un proper" and such.

and I AM a presentable, respecatble, mature person.

how the Hell do you deal with somthing like that?
Its hard, cause some times I come REALLY close to slipping up and saying the wrong thing to the wrong people.
So I am stuck being two people, and it sucks, why cant I just be one person all the time?

So yeah, I have done something awesome, but I can't openly talk about my awesomenes....GRRR

No work for TEN days. I am officialy off from now until 8:30 on the 19th. and DAMN does it feel good. Normally there is so much to do that taking a holiday is very stressfull, but I think I worked damn hard this week and I am already fully in relaxed mode.

I have been planing this time off for a bit now. One of my best friends who i never get to see cause his current base of opperations is Vancouver is coming.

My friend owen who i know if one of my few regualr readers is coming. I have to pick him up on Saturday. He isgoing to be in town until Thursday.

The only thing that sucks is he has to be back in Calgary at like 6:30 AM on that sucks.

I should be having an awesome game of Risk in the weekend. Heading up to Edmonton for a day, and all around just having a blast.

2 days after Owen leaves we will have a full house, its Amy's birthday next week and a pile of friends are coming down. We are going to dinner and then toboganning. Its gonna rock.

In other news I finally joined the Apple world and bought an ipod. Its not new, its not the best but it will work just fine for me. I got a 4th gen 40 GB ipod (read 37 on ebay. got what i think is an awesome deal. I have 10 hours of music on there so far and still have 36 GB of space. AWESOME. The only reason I got it is that i love listening to music at work, but my computers ound sucks REALLY bad, so that basically nothhing is listenable. and I HATE it. So thats why the ipod.

I have also been discovering some awesome new music recently and I am really enjoying that. So that works out well with the ipod as well.

Anyway, i am going to leave work early, so let my vacation officially begin.

I Like Plants

In the last couple months I have become interested in house plants and my collection continues to grow.

Between My girlfriend and I we now have - 3 differant cacti, an Aloe Vera plant, a Holiday "cactus", a venus flytrap, a spider plant, and a mystery tree I got from work.

I love taking care of them and finding out about them. My Venus flytrap is already starting to grow new traps, and they are bright vibrant red.

I am in the process of getting a couple new plants soon.

The only problem is the lack of good lighted room in our house.

One of the most interesting things I have learned about is a type of plant called a

Basically these plants can not survive without human interaction. they almost never go to seed and when they do they are usually not viable. they only grow and spread through cuttings.

I like the idea of a mutual almost symbiotic relationship with a plant. Its seems almost spiritual.

I am hoping to atain a cultigen in the next month or so. I cant wait.

Cloverfield rules

Anybody else go see Cloverfield this week?

Me and some friends who have been following it since the beginning went opening night and it was awesome.

No spoilers here, just go see it. If you have problems with motion sickness be prepared for a spinning movie. but its worth it.

best part

some dude actually had a seizure in front of us. it was THAT good.

It will piss allot of people off with some UN answered questions, but who really cares. The best movies leave some things open to interpretation.

As a movie fan in general, regardless of genre and just for the love of the art this movie is amazing. In 1999 the Blair witch project tried to do what Cloverfield has succeeded in.
Being filmed on a "home camera" and still looks amazing.

The monster is freakishly huge, powerful and very well designed.

I WILL go see this again, and you should too.

This is the kind of movie that makes movies worth watching, with writers and directors and whole crews that want to take movies to a whole new place. and not just hash out the same crap over and over again.

so do me and yourself a favour. if you like movies and want to continue seeing new and awesome things. go see it.

a delay

I was going to post an acctual post today, i promise i was....seriously.

however some things have come up and I am in no mood to talk about anything fun. In fact I am in one of the worst moods I can remeber being in in a really long time.

I was literally hyper-ventilating and shaking in anger before lunch. Then some more shit happend and I am even more pissed off. I wouldnt say I have calmed down but I have gaind a little control and composure back. maybe I will post what I planed on tomorrow....we'll see.

New Obsessions part 1.

SO I have a few new obssesions these days.

Like many people I have been hooked by the evils of guitar hero III.

I had played a little of guitar hero II, but not much. While my room mate got GHIII for Christmas and its taken up alot of my time these days.

I started on easy but did really well on that from the start, so I moved on to medium. now I have gotten pretty good. I have got gold stars on almost all easy tracks and 5 regular stars on almost all medium tracks. I can get 95-98 percent on all medium tracks pretty much with out a problem. So I figured I was ready to move on to hard......HELL NO! Boy was I wrong. The jump from medium to hard is huge. I have only tried a few times but I have only been able to complete one song. So i think I will be practicing on medium for a long time to come.

I bought myself one of those 3rd party wireless guitars from wal-mart during boxing week sales. and I am so glad I did, my room mate and I have recently started playing co-op and its alot of fun.

I wish we had the earlier games so I could play some differant song, but that will come eventually I am sure. In the meantime I will display "constant vigilance " (bonus points to the identifier of the referance) and i WILL get good enough to complete hard one day. as for expert...forget it.

In other news...

Who knew Carmen Electra was "pretty" and not just hot

Seriously, i don't think it looks anything like her. Just search google images for Carmen electra and you'll see what I mean. Completly differant person.

Either way I am a big fan of this look.

Have a good night, talk to you soon. I promise

Jesus Christ Superstar

I was very privilaged to be able to go to the recent production of JCSS last month.

It featured Ted Neely, the guy who played Jesus in the 1973 movie.

He is now 64 years old but man can he sing.

There were times where you could tell he lacked the power he once did,and it might have been preferable to have a younger person that would fit in with the age of the majority of the cast, but it was still such a treat to see him on his "farewell tour"

Plus Judas as played by Corey Glover from Living Colour was freaking cool...kept waiting for him to break out in "cult of personality"

Herod was awsome, probaly close to the best part of the show.

I was not as pleased with Pilot. I have always loved his parts, small though they are. So i suppose I was a little more critical.

It was a great show, I have been wanting to see it live for years but never had the chance before. And the fact that I was 5th row was pretty damn cool.

So yeah. if you ever get a chance to see JCSS do your self a favor and do it.
