|Old Friends and Unexpected Fun
OK, I really love concerts. It id my new goal to attend one a day. No, really. I just want to go to more. I have the best time. Maybe it's because of the people I am with or the beer I drink. Either way, I love 'em. I got to go to the Yellowcard concert at UCF this past Sat. It was unexpeced because I thought I was going to St. Pete, but that fell through at the last minute. I got home from work and Mel, Kriszta, Andrea, and Hope said ishould just go, they would sneak me in. We got there and the guy at the door took one look at Melinda, "said you all together?", and let us all in. From there we acted like we were 19 and had a balst. We snuck in mini's of Jack because Hope was convienced that they did not sell alcohol. They do. Beer. But it's $5 a pop. Ouch. So, we got cokes, went to the bathroom, and added the Jack. We were tippy on the floor. It was great.
I have fallen in love with two new bands- Forever Changed and Acceptance. They, along with the Pink Spiders (ew) opened up for Yellowcard. The show rocked. I danced, screamed, and jumped my heart out. Mel said she was bad that I came because all the others were not into the show. We sang to each other. It was great. Especailly when Yellowcard came on. There is one song that I refused to listen to by them for the past year. It was a song that Brian really liked and said reminded him of me. That made me sad for a while. At the show I sang my rage out, and I'm cured now. Went to UGB after the show. Wished that I worked on my list more, but I was not into the drinking thing at this point. Had 2 from the list and was done. I have T-minus 11 beers left. Wahoo. It's good to have goals.
I wnet to Tampa on Sun. and had lunch with Kathy. Hadn't seen her since her wedding 3 years ago. It was like not time had passed at this point. That's the best type of friend to have. We'd been talking more lately. It's cool. Now that she is living in Tampa I have to excuse to see her. It was great. We had lunch and walked the mall. I bought my first thing of MAC make-up. Overpriced stuff...love it. Drove to the hill after that. Had dinner with the 'rents and then went to see Miranda and Emma. BABY!!! Loved it. She is so cute. I hadn't held a baby in so long. I got to feed her too. She is so cute, cuddly, and beautiful. Glad it's her and not me.
So, spent Mon. with my mom. Pete really got into Halloween and dressed up. On my way back to O-town I stopped at Best Buy and got both the Acceptance and Forever Changed CD's. I am addicited to music again. It is my goal to get a new CD a week. I'll be in debt to Best Buy before too long it seems. But, I guess it's nothing different than being in debt to 4 credit card agencys. Debt is great. Back to work for that job that pays so well. Wahoo. Current Mood: okay

|I LOVE Concerts!!
WAHOO!!! I am SOOOOOOOOO happy that I went to the concert last night. NIN, Trent Reznor...I love you!!!
Funny how things work out sometimes. I have to thank Brent for not going to the show. If he was there I would never have had the oppertunity to switch tickets. Melinda was my date this time. Helen wound up going to the show too because her friend Mike and his girlfrined broke up and she took her place. Irnoic? Anyhow. I had plent of time to get ready for the show. I straightned my hair, piled on the eye make-up, punked out the wardrobe, and drank margaritas. Yum. I know I took the tickets to Helen's house where I met Melinda. I didn't have them once I was there. I searched the car, had Mel drive back home- nothing. I called Ticketmaster and had a new set made at TD Waterhouse. By this time I missed Death Above 1979. I was mad because their CD rocks. Got it the other day.
Finally got to TD and got a beer first thing. I was tippy at this point. Queens of the Stonage was on, not that great. They played well, but the show was boaring. I was in my seat with Mel till the end of the set. Then we met up with Helen and Mike. Helen switched my ticket for when NIN came on, she had floor tickets, what I wanted all along. I had another beer, was drunk at this point, and took my new ticket with the wrist band held together with gum to the floor. The rest is a blur for a while. Mike said as soon as Trent took the stage that I ran to the front of the stage. I apparently got stuck in a mosh pit, got knocked in the head, went down, and 2 secoonds later popped up and ran even closer to the stage. I was about 5 "rows" back from the front for the show. I was pressed against the other people, mostly guys, thrown around and almost taken down multiple times. The show ROCKED!!!! I LOVE TRENT!!!! Mel said the special effects were awesome, but I didn't see them from where I was. I did have a great view of my love though. It was like one big orgy. I had a guy try to kiss me. I think I bit someone's sholder. I screamed my head off. I had the best time ever. Thank you Melinda, Helen, Mike, and shit for brains for making me have a great time.
I am paying for it today though. I have bruises on top of bruises. I hurt in very strange places. My neck from rocking out, my arms are messed up, my legs too, and I have a bruise on my boob. Oh yeah, and my head. I have a small bump. No bruise as of yet, we'll see if that surfaces. I also had the dry mouth and other things that go along with drinking too much. I stopped before NIN took the stage. The rest of them continued to drink at Casy's after the show. I just had popcorn there. I think I threw more of it at Helen than I ate too. It was good times.

|Calling All Homebodies
Ahhh...not having to do anthing...and not having anything to do...urgh. My roomies jetted this weekend to thier respective plans, and I cleaned. I scrubbed the bathroom because it looks like ass, and it still does. I can not get the mildew or the water damage or wahtever it is that is adheared to the grout in the shower. I did the best I could and used the stongest chemicals that I could find at a reasonable price. The soap scum is gone, the calcium deposits are gone...the black shit remains. I attacked the kitchen too, only didn't mop the floors, I HATE that shit. Vacumed and did laundry too while watching movies on HBO. Saw "Chaising Liberty" for the 3rd time, I LOVE that movie!! I guess it's because she travels all over Europe, and I hinestly do think Mandy Moore is a very good actress.
Went to UGB last night nice and early to work on the list. I have T minus 18 beers left on the list to get to the 100. I am very proud of myself. I may actually finish something I started. Imagine that. I was there with the inetntion of having 3, then I had another, then one was bought for me...I know, stupid. I also didn't have dinner before I went. I was not fit to drive, this I know now. Got Taco Bell, came home and I think took DIxie out, that I don't remeber too well. I think I did becuase I remember coming in the house and my phone ringing. FInally got to talk to Brent, it must be out weekly meeting time or something. I did spend last Sun. and Mon. after work with him. Mon. was really fun when we went out to eat then downtown for a few drinks. I never go downtown on a week night, and I have never been ther with Brent either. We're homebodies. We usually spend our time together cooking, watching movies, and maybe venturing out into the world for a moment. It was fun.
Wed. I went downtoen again. I know, I am a lush it seems. This time I went to nickel beer night, but I could not find the nickel beer. It was like $2 for a cup that would be filled up from pitchers. I opted for the $.75 bottled beer. I double fisted it. After one round I choose to go home, my friends stayed out. I am gald I left, they got home at 2am. I had to work the next day. That's it for the outings this week.
This upcoming week State Farm is here, I hope that all goes well. They are a high profile group. I also know they tip at the end, I want money. Current Mood: blah

|My Crazy Ass Firends
OK, I have seen them get crazy, have balls of steel and molest strangers, or drink till they forget who they are...but I have not seen them fight. Yes, fight. Hope got into a fist fight at the tailgate today. We were out there for like 6 hours at this point and drinking. I had given up on the beer a fews hours into this thing one to not have to pee in the port-o-potty and two because I am stupid, but in the end, smart. I wanted to get going becuase I did not want to go into the game, but everyone was still drinking. Jamie drank a shit load and after she stopped daning and laughitng at nothing, she started puking. This guy next to us started making fun of her. Sam heard him and got pissed. She told Hope to do sometihng about it. Hope got up in this guy's face and said stop it, she just had a lot to drink- all alcohol, and she's sick. He didn't stop. Then this girl joined in. This is where Hope got violent. She punched this guy and girl and started screaming at the top of her lungs. These guys we were with had to pull her back and hold her off. She was off the ground flailing her arms and kicking like mad. It was funny to see, but sad at the same time. Beer was being thrown everywhere, Alex got clobbered with a beer can. The fight could have continued, but the cops were on their way at this point, so Hope ran into exile.
After hiding out for a half an hour, she came around and was laughing about the ordeal. We tried to gather our belongings and left...or tried to. When we got to the car it was blocked in pretty badly. I tried to manuver it out of the spot with no luck. Alex was drunk and thought she could do a better job...nope! Then a cop came over and was like "Is there a woman driving that thing?". Ass. He came over and tried to get the car out himself, he had to resort to backing up over the curb because it was impossible. See? It's not a "woman" thing. Ass. Sean, Melinda's brother, wanted to attempt to get the car himself, but the cop was like "Anyone who's had something to drink is not allowed to get behind the wheel!". OK, I agree. This is where me not drinking for a few hours is a very good thing. I bet that the only reason the guy came over in the first place was to see if we were drunk and trying to drive. HA! I was sober!! And I drive home.
The other reason I stopped drinking was because I was upset. Upset at the fact I still had not recieved a call. I was told the other day I'd get a call when he got off work today. It was about 7pm and nothing. I came home, showered off the massive sweat, and went on-line. Around 8:30 I got a call from the Hyatt. He was at work. Apparently he was feeling horrible yesterday and called in. This is not like him, he had to be in bad shape. He thinks it's mono, I sure as hell hope not. For way too many reasons that would be very bad. So after he called in, got massive shit from Chef for doing so, his schedule was changed on him without being told. He went into work at 6am like he thought, but was told to leave and come back and close. So, he's there till 2am. Nice. He does have off Sun. and Mon. I have off Sun. He said he'd call tomorrow when he wakes us. I hope he wakes up at a reasonable hour. I also hope that he's feeling better and is up to something. I know I'm a bit selfish here...he could be very sick and all I can think of if he's going to want to go out. At lease I know what's up. He's not being the ass that I am trying to make him into- he's really working like mad, and he's ill. Wonder if I'll remember this next time I freak. There goes the paranoid over reacting me thing again. I don't learn.
So, I am speding a Sat. night at home doing laundry and catching up with my roomies. Heard that we won the game today!!!! WAHOO!!!!!! Now we're 3-2. And we're 3-0 in our conference. Wouldn't it be awesome to go to a conference bowl? I would freak, in a good way. It would be about damn time to do that. We need to get the football team together and win some REAL shit. Then maybe people will respect us more. And if we continue this maybe nest year we'll get decent recruits and really kick some ass. Ahhh, wishful thinking. Current Mood: peaceful
|Thursday, October 6th, 2005|
Man, I couldn't have planned it if I tried. So, I was feeling really shitty, like making myself sick almost. This is something I am good at I'm sad to say. I do it mostly over other people, but also at situations that make me nervous. I get my innards all twisted and look like I'm about to explode- not a good look for me I must say. Anyhow, I left work and drove up Semoran for some reason to go home. There were all these red lights I kept getting stopped at. One close to Curry Ford was really long. I was looking around and saw this guy walking, then I took a closer look...he was s big guy in a white shirt and green backpack. That seems familar. It was Brent. I tooted my horn and he came running over. It was raining. So weired. He got in the car and we talked.
So, he was on his way to his friend's house for the afternoon. I must say that I am jealous, but at the same time I know it's been a LONG time since he hung out with Huggs. It's only a nick-name. The boy told me the perrials of the last approx. week. He's been getting out at around 3am and relying on others to get him home. So, that proves the late to home theory I had. I was told about last Fri. when we were to go out, he left work really late, and that's the night he got sick. I won't go into detail, but suffice it to say it was similar to when I got my food poisioning in S.C. Then he had a head cold. This all lasted till about Tues. The entire time he was working those 14 hour days leaving at 3am. OK, that sucks. I feel for him. But, why not get in touch with me once he was off work- like yesterday or today? Well, yesterday he slept all day. Rented a movie and slept. Today he slept. He'd gotten up not too much before I was driving home from work and was window shopping at the Semoran stores. He said he was thinking about me today...OK, act on that bi-otch.
I was really cold at first- not really talking at all and looking straight ahead at the road. He kept grabbing my knee and saying "so, what's up?" all happy and shit. I warmed up after I made him feel bad that I made reservations last Fri. night. I drove him to Hugg's, that way I got to see him and talk for a while. We parked in the apartment parking lot and talked for a while. I asked if he was mad at me and avoiding me at all, he just laughed. I know, I am paronoid. I live for that shit, I'm not happy unless I'm miserable. So, things are fine, and I over reacted. He eventually got up to leave and said "I better leave now otherwise we'll be here talking for hours". I could do that. I love heaing his stories, and then venting with mine. He gave me a great big kiss and was off. His schedule changed and now he's closing tomorrow night then opening on Sat. morning. That really sucks. I was hopeing to see him Sat. night, but he'll just go home and go to bed. I now am holding out for Sunday, but you never know. After he told he his schedule and I was like WTF? When will we see each other? He just laughed and said, "March is not that far away!!!". Funny.
The sad thing is this- the busy season has just begun. I will be batteling this for a few months. I will work my ass off, and he will too, just not at the same time I guess. He talked about tranfering properties, and I talked about moving on with my carrear. He asked how he could get out of his internship here, and I suggested him to say he was pregnant with my child and had to relocate with me. Hehehehe, I thought it was funny....the opposite would not be.
Last night I went to John's going away party at the Ale House. It was hard to say good bye to him, but I have a big feeling we'll be seeing each other again, and kind of soon. He's off to Denver, and I am jealous. Anja is next, at the end of the month. That one will be really really hard for me, she's like the first person I rember at the FD, and we were parters in crime on the 3rd shift. I was given an open invitation to visit, and John suggested that Brian and I go together. I like that. He's an awesome traveling buddy- we had great times back in the day. Until last night I'd not hung out with him for almost a year. It's been that long...crazy. The weird thing is that spending time together last night was very natural, plus he wore the shirt I bought back in the day. I have great taste. So, we'll see.
This is the eve of my weekend. I am stoked. I will rejoyce as I leave the Hyatt tomorrow. I think I may tail gate this Sat. too with the gang. Kriszta is planning a doozie, sicne I'm off I may as well go and get shit faced with my fellow Alumni. GO KNIGHTS!!!!!!!!! Current Mood: relieved

|Only Three Days To Go!!!
Yes ladies and gents, the end is near...the 5am hour will no longer see me, until the weekend is over and I go back to work. Or maybe I'll just be out all night. Yeah, right!! So, Guidant has been kicking my ass. They still don't have their shit together, and we don't have the staff to pull things out of the air for them all day long. Today they added 70 people to their lunch 2 hours before the event...and they cut their coffee from the morning and afternoon breaks to get people in rooms quicker. It didn't work. And as far as the lunch thing goes, I want part of tip pool, because I was a baquet server today along with all the other managers and even the two Sous Chefs. Then I got to switch hats and do CS for most of the rest of the day. Damn I'm talanted. I must say that GB said I was all over eveything and he should have taken the day off. That's a far cry from the review he gave me almost a year to the day ago. Man, how time cures so many things.
No news on the boy front. I am waiting until tomorrow to see of he comes through...I hate waiting. Current Mood: anxious

|Work, Sleep, Repete
That's my life. I completed day 7 of 12, I'm on the down side. Wahoo. It's been crazy lately. The sad thing that I hate admitting is I like it like that. I love being busy, running my ass off...and making the $$ that goes along with it. I to work volunteered 6 days last and this week. I did it to myself- last week with PBX, this purely with Banquets/Catering. I think that I have had a bonding experience with Jennifer, and she really is trusting me more. Or maybe it's just that she doesn't trust Courtney. I like the first thought better. We have pushed through FL Dental, and now the disaster that is Guident. Man, this group has the potential to relaly rock- it's sales training for a medical distributing company, but they don't have their shit together. The funniest thing is seeing Corrine getting mad. During the 2 hour long pre-con I thought she was shooting darts from her eyes at the changes the client was making, and the little conversations that were happening while she wantend to get out of there. Hehehe. I'm hourly, I love the long drawn out meetings...This week will be interesting.
So, for the weekly update. From last Monday, I got a call that night, and it was a great conversation. We talked for over an hour. The fiasco of last Sun. was explained: he didn't hear me knocking on the door, and basically was sleeping and felt no need to answer his phone. I asked if it's bad I try to make plans, and he said no- it's just hard to coordinate our work schedules. It's frustrating, but I agree. So, we talked about getting together on Tues. since he was off. He made this amazing dinner and we went out drinking. The rest of the night is rated S for stupid, but man, I had a great time if you know what I mean. Paid the price the next day- a 12 hour shift off 4 hours of sleep.
Talked Wed. for a long time. During the convo. I asked if he wanted to go out for dinner on Fri. night. He said yes. Well, Fri. came- he was to be off- and I see him at work. I was surprised. Wanted to know if that would effect our plans, he said no, he'd be out at a reasoable hour. Well, I made reservations at Charly's with this in mind. Did I go? No. Did he call that night, no. Not till today did I talk to him, and that was by accident. Apparently the past few nights have been horrible in the hotel and he's been getting out VERY late. Although I think phones still work in the middle of the night he dosn't agree. I guess it's a courtesy thing, lame.
So, whatever. I've been working my ass off with no sign of it ending, so I can sympathize...but I miss him. Hopefully things will work out this week- but as I have come to realize: it just is what it is. Current Mood: exhausted

|Another Week Down
So it's a pattern, I write once a week. Or there abouts.
Last Sun. I drove all over Orlando getting the cars my roomates left behind. It took all afternoon. Kriszta and I ate at Too Jay's even after I put up a fight. KZ got a call to go drink at Bennigan's and I got a call to see Brent. I was damn full, but there is always room for drinks. After a rowdie trip to Ale House I had a great idea to go to Steak and Shake for a malt. The malt turned into three shakes, guess who had most of them all...Being there was like old times where I'd get drunk and go to Denny's or the like. We were throwing napkins an straws. We goraged ourselves on dessert, and he made himself puke as we left. He puked on the car parked next to us. Nice. I drove away in a hurry.
Work this week was more than I've been doing for a while. I actually got overtime. WAHOO!!! About damn time. My paychecks have been so pitiful it's sick. I need money. I did get a it's time for a 90 day review speech from Sheri. Fuck. Now I will formally be told how I suck. Can't wait.
Thurs. I got a call from Brent telling me his helper with the truck didn't come through to move the bed. This turned into the can you please help me call. Well, I did, and it was damn funny. We somehow got a king sized bed tied on my car. Well, Brent did I guess. I felt like I was in "Speed" when I was driving home. All I kept hearing was "Don't go over 20mph!! I can hold the bed like this, don't go faster!!". I was going 30, I'm a speed deamon. It was all him getting it up the stairs to the apartment. Putting the thing together was interesting. The frame fell apart once evenything was together, and Brent lost it. He threw the mattress and it knocked into the lamp. He tossed the box springs and one put a hole in the wall. That's when I stepped back and was like, WTF?!?!?!?! Then the apologies kicked in. He turned back into a normal person.
Fri. after work I met up with Brent again and he cooked the most amazing dinner. It was all this Asian food made with a lot of coconut. The best was the shrimp in the coconut milk with rice. So rich and yummy. I made fried coconut shrimp, they rocked. Then there was the wontons with the crab and cheese mixture. Did I say yum? He was a bit preoccupied that night wanting to do this menu thing for work. I gave up on watching the movie alone and hung out with him. This was the first night I got to sleep on the bed, and it was comfy. When I woke up and saw the sun it was all over. Brent had to be at work at 6am that morning, I was off. In 5 min. I was up and in my car with him. He was an hour a half late to work. The funny thing was he wanted to know who to call to tell them he was late, 'cause he's the one in charge!! He talked to one of the people in the kitchen and they threatened to write him up. Hehehehe...
Got a call that night, didn't expect that. He told me of the perrils of his day, and I laughed. In the end I told him I picked up a shift on Monday and we start at the same time. Give me a call Sun. after work and we'll make plans. I didn't get a call. I did however get a dead battery in my car. Had to jump it with the neighbor's cables. Went to Wal Mart for a new one. $45 later I went to Ale House with KZ and saw Colin. The encounter ensued, he's dating another girl and KZ's devestated. I don't blame her one bit. We drank. We also met up with some slime ball she met last weekend at Eye Spy. Never want to see him again. Ewwww...Watched the Stealer's game so I could give B the play-by-play, but as I mentioned, he never called. From here I will not say what I did, but sufice it to be we didn't talk last night and I slept at home. Went to work on my own today.
When I talked to him at work it was kind of weird. I was in a great mood today and said I wanted to see him tonight. I said this. He was like, oh, I don't know when I'll get off today, it may be a while. So, I came home and have been here watching the news ever since. Well, now I've moved on to the Real World. No call as of now. I will not give in. I will not call him, for real. He must be in one of those moods...he'll come around, he has to. He has my shit and is going to a concert with me in a month. I know he's moody, but damn it, don't be a girl. This is what I hate about dating, the un-needed drama. Why can't things always be good and happy? I like them better then. Urgh. Current Mood: irritated
|Sunday, September 18th, 2005|
Another week, and it's Sunday. Wahoo. The only postive thing about returnfing to work is that I will not spend the money that I am not making. The pop-up trip to the mall proved fruitful for the wardrobe, but devistating to the wallet. Thanks Kriszta.
So, as a follow up to the last entry, i did win that Sat. night. Brent gave up on his friend and we went to the movies. We saw "The Exercism of Emily Rose", and it was really good. The damn kids behind us I wanted to kill, but waht can you do. Went to the Weezer/Foo Fighters concert in Tampa on Sunday which rocked. I met up with Tricia before and had lunch, got my TV, and just hung out for a bit. Went to Channelside to meet up wih my friends and found that Tara got two flat tires on the way up from Naples and couldn't make the concert. We had her ticket and attempted to scalp it- unsuccessfully. In the end KZ tried to just give it away and this nice guy gave ou and almost fell asleep on the road I was so tired. I got 4 hous of sleep and went into work. It was a short day so I came home early and crashed for a long summer nap. Ahh....
Wed. I went to Brent's after work to drip off the TV. I have no use for it now, he may as well keep it otherwise it would be in the garrage. Funny to wach him carry the thing alone up the stairs. I remember getting that thing up to 3rd floor apt. back in the day and the struggle. Thanks to those who helped in the past ;). I made the assumption that I was going to hang out with him that night, but he made plans with his friends. I couldn't be mad, we never discussed it, but he felt bad and said he was mine Thurs. Met up Thurs. and watched some stupid shit he got from his friens the night before. CKY appernetly was the pre-Bam phenomonon in PA. All I saw were guys pooping off bridges and running into things. I lost 5000 brain cells that afternoon. We went the Wrold Market and the FL Mall after all that. While in Godiva the girl behind the counter started taling to me about my DG shirt. One thing led to another then the funny part begins. She asked if I knew Brian Wurme. It took all my concentration to not laugh my ass off here. The reason being I was with Brent and being asked that question was fucking akward. She was like, do you know him well, and I was like, yeah. He's an old friend. Fun times.
That night stayed over and got to have anoteher talk. Now, I want to preface this with it was not my who stared this, well, maybe. But, it was a different conversation that I was having. He started with the whole- "if we're going to have a relationship you have to undertand that I am moody". OK, so am I. We got into our quirks and peeves from here. I now know he's a morning person- not a night one. I am a night one. He's not too touchy feely primarily due to not having that as a kid, and I am the opposite. What it came down to is that we have to respect each other and comprimise to some extant. Ahh...trying to be an adult. Fun. The night ended well- no complanints here. Guess he's getting into relationship mode after all. Hehehe. I knew it.
Friday night went to the Less than Jake show at HOB. All because of Melinda I started drinking. I drank more that I thought I did and after I tried getting Tricia on the phone to listen to the show for 30 min. I randomly left the show. I went to Brent's but he wasn't home yet from work, so I went home. In the way I was at an intersection with a red arrow and fell asleep waiting for the change. Can't believe that. I cuold have gotten myself killed that night. As soon as I pulled into my driveway I got a call from Brent. So, I turend around and wnet back. This time I got Taco Bell. Low and behold the boy was shit faced too. He worked the wine dinner and then preceded to drink the wine that was not served. After chugging 2 bottles he left. It was highly comical to see us talk to each other, we were practially screaming for no reason. When we got up in the morning he was convinced he was still drunk. He had to go to work- I went to the mall. I slept most of the day after that. He worked until 11 at night. I went downtown with KZ and Sam. I got back at 3 bed by 4. Had fun even if it was last minute decision to go downtown. Pumpkin Ale is back, wahoo!!!! Got a phone call at 5am from Brent. He was on his way to work, don't know why he called, but it's all good. I was like, I just went to sleep, and he was like, FU, I'm going to work. Hehehhe. So, I slept in till noon and now I', doing laundy and stuff. Have to go and pick up my rommies cars around town. Mel's is at Disney and KZ's is downtown. Fun day ahead of me!!! Current Mood: cheerful

|I forgot this part...
Yeah, the part where the relationship is not fun and cheery- the shit that goes along with having someone else involved in your life. Don't get me wrong, things are good. It's just that today he's in a pissy mood for multiple reasons and I hate having to deal with that. I was not in a super great mood today. In fact I was pretty damn annoied that I went into work for NO reason. I sat around and talked to people for 5 hours then left out of shear boardum. I could have slept in today, but no...
So, with that- I must say that I was in constant transit this past week. From when I got back last Fri. to go to the Ale House for the banquet outing that I got there too late for, I then met up with Brent. Sat. we were both off but didn't go to the beach- with gas prices the way they are, and the supply the way it was, going to Cocoa was not the best option. So, we slept most of the day the met up with Hope at bennigan's for the Wall of Beer Drink Off. I just had a couple, Hope was trying to have all the taps from the wall. That added up to 24 beers, she almost made it but fell out of her bar stool and was cut off by Kriszta. I ended up having a mini bar-b-q at Brent's with a table top grill. He went to work on Sun. but let me stay at his place so I could sleep more. I got ambitious and cleaned his place. It was a mess. I then went to a bar-b-q of my won with Melinda, Kriszta, Tara, and Hope. It was a Lambda Chi BBQ...not what I was expecting, but I had a good time. Met up with Brent because I had his keys and decided to have a stay in night with a movie. Saw "Anchoman" for the first time since it was in the theaters, funny shit. Drank many beers and fell asleep. Monday I went to work for a pre-con with Pepsi and then worked the FD till 11pm. Met back up with Brent and went to Ale House for a bucket. There he told me about his upcoming graduation from PCA and invited me to go along. We looked at plane tickets when we got back to my place and everything. Tues. we were both off and I was to take my car in to get the motor blower repaired. I was talked out of it because A) it's still working, B) Brent said he could do it himself, and C) I didn't really want to get up early and go to the car shop to sit till an undetermined time. Spent the afternoon at Discount Auto and Auto Zone looking for books and parts. Went to barn and Noble and spent 2 hours looking at books. From there went to look at beds, unsuccessfully, and out to eat at Sweet Tomatoes. While there he brought up the graduation thing and how he didn;t know if he wanted to go, that his parnets wouldn't make the drive to see him, and no one would be there for him. I brought up the fact that he asked me to go, and he got a very surprised look on his face and said, "well, you can if you want". OK, so he forgot the entire conversation we had the previous night. I felt stupid, and let down. From there we went to the movies and saw "The Cave". It sucked. Don't see it. No plot, no begining middle or end, and a total waste of money. I stayed over his place because I had to be in early the next day and he's so much closer to the hotel than I am. Wed. was the day at work where Disney popped up the 2300 snack packs and the all hands on deck was called at 5pm to stuff them. I was a pro at putting water and apples in paper bags at this point. Brent and I got off work at the same time, so I took him home, and he cooked an awesome dinner out of what he had in the house. I fell asleep there and did a McGyver move in the morning to not look the same at work since I had not been home yet and had little to work with. Thank goodness I had my toiletrees to clean up with. Thurs. was Amanda's going away party at Ale House. I went and hung out with the work crew till 9pm and drank for free thanks to the F&B director, George. I was listening to my messages, one being from Brent, and he called on the other line. I was jsut about at his place, so I stopped over. I hung out for 2 hours, but left this time only because I had NOTHING to wear for work the nest day. Got home at midnight and wanted to kill myself 5 hours later when I had to get up for work again. SO...with all that said and done, I spent the week with him...didn't expect that.
Throught out all this I did have a "talk" with him the night of the graduation incident. It was a vague talk, because all the shit I want to say in my head dosn't come out right when I try to say it. He basically said he's had a lot of fun with me expecially over the last few days and dosn't want things to change. He said it takes hime a while to get into a relationship, and he's encountered people in the past who started out normal but became psycho after a bit, so he wants to move slow. Well, as seeing from above the slow thing is not so much, but I'll let him believe what he wants to. I know all about being cautious, and I said the only reason I brought this up is bcause I care about him, but I refuse to let myself get hurt again. So, I just kind of wanted to know where this was going. I tried to emphisise that I wasn't profession my un-dying love to him, and I was not asking for his hand in marriage, just wanted to put some cards on the table. I hope I didn't do too much of a girl thing and creep him out. There is such a grey area there to deal with!!
So, yesterday I went to work, came home, and for a change chilled with the roomies. I got more than 5 hours of sleep on a real bed, and went to work this morning for the most unsless shift ever. Left after 5 hours of doing nothing, and went to Sam's with Melinda. Got food to make tognight with Brent, and then the moodie phone call came in. He had a shitty week at work, wants to cook again, talked to the AF&B about his future and she was trying to convince him to go to a "better" property. Um, finish your internship first. He's so parinoied about not having a spot at HROIA at the end of the internship, he's worse than me. I keep saying that a lot can change in a year, but he wants to know where hes going and what he's doing now. Then I get he has plans with friends at 10pm tonight, and I was like WTF? I thought we had plans to have dinner. So, he was to take a shower and call me, that was almost an hour and a half ago. He said he may just lay on the floor and I should call if too much times passes. Urgh....get out of that funk crazy boy!!!
So, I am tired. Annoyed that I got up to go to work this morning and did nothing and left after 5 hours. Annoyed that I started making food that now will not be eaten. Annoyed that I had plans with the Brent then he maks half ass plans with friends. And, I am annoyed that I have this great concert to go to tomorrow and have to be back at work for another pointless day on Monday.
I know this was a major bitch-fest. I know there is very little pertinent information in this enrty, but I will not apologize. I am entitied to write on and on about nothing, and recount my life in detail. I'm off to shower and who knows after that... Current Mood: annoyed

|Devistation and Distruction
Wow. That's all I can say...man. I didn't know how bad the hurricane hit the Gulf Coast. It's increadible. The flooding, the people, the shear distruction of so much is more that I can understand. An estimated 26 Billion in damages. Insurance companies will go bankrupt- I have the inside scoop from Tric, man what to do.
Work was longer than expected today. I had my one-on-one changed from Sheri to Corinne, fun times. It was a talking to about how I should not feel like I was taken from banquets and now in catering, but rather that I am part of a team that works together. Bullshit. I am to do two jobs or more, that's the bottom line. Corinne also told me to "toot my own horn" more. I need to let people know the things I do, get my image up. No one is going to prasie me for things they don't know I do. I can agree with that- I need all the positive help possible. I was told that I am young, and I am very bright, and I can go far- if only I get people to notice me and I find my own way to "wow". I hate the real world. I want to go back to kindergarten where I was worried about nap time and clay stuck in my fingernails. I hate this prove yourself shit over nad over and over again. It never ends. You do good one day and the next you're back to shit again with one small fuck up, or if you look at someone incorectly.
So, I am off to the hill tomorrow after work. I packed, it's light- don't plan on doing too much. I will be back on Fri. possibly in time for the Banquet/CS outing at Ale House. I will be back in time to meet up with Brent thought. We have plans to go to the beach on Sat. for the sunrise and stay till the sun sets. I have not been to the beach in so loong that is overkill for me, but if I am having fun I'll deal with it. I want to see the boy frolick in the ocean, that sun lover. He got burnt last week at the beach and is still paying for it. Lobster boy.
So, off to bed- taking a quick shower first. The damn humidity makes you feel gross all the time. Where is fall???? Current Mood: confused

|Later Rather Than Sooner
Round two. I manage to do this a lot it seems- erase what I write and having to do it again...urgh.
So, the last entry that made it on the livejournal page was from my trip. My summer vacation. It was fun at times. Went to Savanah, GA and sight saw the historical place from a trolly. It was cool, saw lots of neat things. Learned something or two too. Imagine that. I loved Riverfront. I recomd it as a tourist destination.
From there I went to Akin, SC and Agusta, GA to visit KZ Skittle monster. I got ill, violently. I had to wait an extra day to come back home then take two days off work to recover. Lets just say it was BAD and I will never eat crab cakes again. Eww...
So, for the update- KZ now lives with me. I am stoked at that one. My buddy is back in FL with a job that she thought would be awesome and now is growing to hate. They have screwed her over a few times with everything from pay to insurance to her times and sanity. I can undertand she is upset. There is also the Colin thing, will they or won't they get back together...ever???? I was hopeing he would come around, but he's a man, and those just suck most of the time. They don't want what is good for them, they want to fuck up on a retarded situation or play the field, but they do want to keep you there at their convience. Good one guys.
I am still at the Hyatt, still in the same position, but not. I am now part of Catering and CS, not Banquets...but I sitll have to do the banquet stuff so that department won't suffer. There is a new Asst. Banquet Mgr. who is not doing so hot. She complains all the time, and screws up more. I could have done a better job with my eyes closed, and Jennifer knows it. That is why I have to train her, coach her, teach her all I know...WTF?!?!?!?! Why did't you give the position to me then? But, that's the Hyatt for ya. I'm there for the hell of it it seems. No leaving any time soon. But, at least I have a small consilation prize-
Of all things, I am dating someone. And yes, I work with him. Eww...I know. Didn't want to do that again. But, you can't help these things sometimes. It all started on a conversation on Creme Fresh on an Owner's Lunch. He was in the cafiteria and is the cullinay CMT and cooked on that meal. I have a deep love for that stuff from France and the convo. began. We then had the Manager's Outing that night, I asked if he's be there he said yes, and we hung out. We played ski ball and Tekin 4, drank Yngling and had a breat time. All the exec managers thought we were a cute couple and pushed for us to admit it. I sent him an e-mail from work, he responded. Cornered him in the hallway one day, started talking about concerts, found out he wanted to go to the NIN show I was going with or without someone else, and bought tickets for a show two months away. Gave him my number, he called, we talked for hours the first two times. Then we hung out. The first day turned into a weekend. Crazy. I have never been in whirl-wind romance before. For the next three weeks we talked almost every night. We hun out three times or more a week too. It was crazy. Now things have slowe down to a normal pace. It's more due to the work schedule I think than anything. He works more than me, that's hard to imagine. So when the busy season hits it will be intersting. I hope it works out well.
He's a great cook. This past weekend I showed him my skills and now he said he'll never cook again- I'm that good. Hehehehehe. He is not perfect- there is a big dark side to Sicky as he likes to be called. I don't. He has done everything known to man, tried to get himself killed many times in his youth. I guess it's good to have the crazy shit out of the boy, but some stories are too much for me to handle. Even my Vegas story dosn;t hold up to his!!! But, there is chemistry. He's a great kisser- and complemnts me on my skills too. It's nice to be in an affectionate relationship again. One where I get something in return. But, that's another story. That's all good too, we're finally really cool I think. That makes me happy. So, I can admit I love that one, the other- the one I am with...we'll see what happens. He's a caring guy, he's capable of it, we'll see if it comes to pass.
So, now I am chillin' to Jack Johnson, something I would never have done before Brent. I am being intoduced to new music, new food, and a new way to sleep at night. When I am there, there is no bed- it's the floor. At least he's a big ol' comfy boy to sleep up on. A big cuddly 6'7" boy who's pushing 300lbs. Size 15 shoe, 19 1/2" neck, XXL shirt- he's a BIG boy with blue eyes and a baby face. The total opposite of anything in my past. I actually feel small now, in a good way. I hope this works- I have a big crush.
Gonna sleep now. Another day ahead- day two of three of for the week. Wahoo. Current Mood: giddy

|Greetings from Akin, SC
Wow, what a vacation. It has been not like anything I planned, or tried to plan that is. From the fuck up of Charleston really being Charlotte, from the massive car troubled of my dear friend Kriszta, to the time away in Savannah....it's been real. That's all I can say about it at this point. So I am chillin' in Akin and the weather had followed me all week- it's crap!!!!!!!! I think that my fun filled night in Augusta (GA that is) may be washed out from all this. At least I have my K-Skittle monster to keep me company, and the drive back home shall ensue tomorrow. Wahoo. Current Mood: tired

|Older and Wiser
Wow, it's been a long long time since I wrote. Life has been busy, especially with work. Keeping up with my friend's drama takes the rest of the time. I have had my moments of fun, and I plan to relive them with all my closest, well almost...AHHHEEMMMM, DG's, in about a week. See, it's my birthday, but only in a technical way. Next weekend two friends are coming out of state and others from out of town for yours truly. I am blessed. I plan to make it a memorable weekend for sure.
So, back to the real world. I have to go to work early in the morning. That's what happens when you get older...the world dosn't stop for you anymore. But, I digress...it was a calm day with lots of love from the Hyatt.
Now I plan to turn a new leaf. I need to think more about how I plan to get to my future, the one that I really want. I will continue to surround myself with those I love and who love me for me, craziness and all. Maybe being a quarter of a century won't be so bad...maybe this is really the start of my life. Current Mood: contemplative

|"Give Us A Few Weeks, We'll Take Off The Weight"
Yep, a good slogan for the moment. Wow, time does heal wounds. Weird...hard to believe at times too. Anyhow, I'm good. I can honestly say that I am happy, that's been a very long time coming. I have come to a point about my job where I just don't care that much any more. Sure I want to do a good job, but the words that come out of people's mouths don't hurt as much. I am only one person with two hand and two feet, they can only carry me so far. I have had a lot of back pain recently, it must be the age kicking in. My job has physically kicked my butt lately. We're short on CS staff, so I have become the newest addition in heals and a suit. Not a good combo. I have put feelers out- nothing yet, but I am not discouraged yet. I have some time. Maybe the Hyatt will come though afterall, but maybe not. Don't marry yourself to a company, and anyone is replacable at any time. This is another sad realization I have come to in the recent past.
So, it's my Friday eve, and I plan to have a great Sat. night with friends. I will go out, get trashed, and who knows...it's the first real big outting for me AND for Kriszta. Ha, ha, ha...we could be in trouble... Current Mood: good

|And so it goes...
Well, we talked. And I must say that I am very happy that we can do this and be civil about it. I must say that I didn't know what I wanted going into it, and I am still not sure now. I know that I am happy that I got things off my chest, and I have no regrets about anyhing said. I am sill hurting, and I am still confused. I sill am not sure why he stopped caring, and I am hurt very much by this. He feels that he can not have a relationship at this point in his life, and I agree as hard as that is. I know that being second rate or lower is no way to be in a relationship...but I am glutten for punishment, and I did it before, I'd do it again. Why, I do not know. I am sad, and I wish that I didn't have to say good-by when I did. I was hoping for a miricle of some kind, like in the movies when the light flashed in one's head and they have a sudden realization that "oh yeah, you are right" thing. No, it didn't happen, and I can not live my life like it will. I sill plan to improve myself to become a happier person, and in time maybe I can love again...God, that sounds painful. But, as I said before, the sun will rise again tomorrow...and life will go on, ouch..it's sad in it's own way. Current Mood: sad

Ah, an entry. I'm at home chillin' with the fam...fun times. Did the day after Thanksgiving shopping thing, wasn't as crazy as I thought. Had a good time. I have been OK. I get into my funks, but as a whole it's like 100X's better than last week. I may or may not hook up with Tricia today. We had great plans to go out and shake our groove things, to get back into the social world, but she's not doing so hot...so it may have to wait. That's alright, it will give the world extra time to prepare for our return...for those who knew us back in the day, well, it's classified. Current Mood: blah

|One Day At A Time
Ah, yes, the greving process...First is denial, then comes saddness, then anger, possibly another step, and finally acceptance. I am in between the saddnesss and the anger phase. I get sadder at night, the morning is OK, like a new day has begun. I am very mad at being the excuse now and also very mad at missing the person I was in love with. Yes folks, I admit it. I love him, but I am not in love with him. That is so irnonic it's crazy. Never thought that could really happen. I was on love with the person that cared about me, that made time for me, that wanted a future with me. Not the person he's become- an arogant self-involved, can't see the forrest for the trees, put my probelms on you type of person. I was un-happy, and my friedns all knew it. I for some reason thought it was a phase that would pass. Like a rough patch. Um ,no. So, I now have to re-plan my entire life, and that's the hardest part. I do plan to make some BIG changes...and those who care will still be there for me no matter what.
Now, I am off to see Tricia for the first tims in a month. I miss her like crazy. I just hope that the two of us can be our own pillers of strength rather than upset each other. I need positive reinforcment here. Wish me luck. Current Mood: blah
