I finally got my new ipod.


so I'm lame, and I can't believe I'm writing a blog about it....but I got a new ipod.

Mine last one got killed by a rollercoaster.....

I play rough.

Don't judge.

Long story short, I was on California Screamin' at DCA, and I had forgotten I had my ipod in my pocket.

My poor little ipod flew out of my pocket, landed somewhere along the track...I saw it fly, witnessed its last functional minutes on Earth, cried out in terror as the train in front of us tore over that particular stretch of track.

Rest in Peace my poor little blue ipod...

I have a new shiny red one now.

lesson learned....ipods and high speed trains don't mix.

I'm out.

It's been a long day.

I'm just kinda grouchy. you ever get out of bed and then wonder why ya did it?  That's me today.

Honestly. I'm tired. got up, got in the shower to wash my hair, realized I forgot to get shampoo. so I now I have wet hair and it's gonna be frizzy and gross. So fine, it's a stereotypical "girly" reaction, but I can't help it. So I have two hours before work...but I want clean hair!  So I run to the store, get my shampoo, come home, jump into the shower....

only to forget that it's street sweeper day, and there was a reason my car was parked in the driveway, not the street...got a ticket for 45$.....annoying!! get to work...a realized I've forgotten my training folder at home, so now I have to wing it with my trainees today....I figure..."hey...I'll burn off steam at the gym, right?"


forgot my gym shoes at home...all I'm wearing are heels....lame....

I go home...get into the shower, relax......and get a call from my friend who was visiting from out of town, asking if we were stilling meeting for dinner tonight..............

Gah...I wanna sleep...

but I'm going out anyhow...later all.

My Random Day yesterday...

alright, so first off, Darian and Kristy will be the only ones who get this joke, but....

"I hate your camera, Joe!"

LOL. okay. So look, yesterday here's what happened, Joe...*glare* got a new camera. I'm so very happy it has a few billion lens settings and whatnot, but you are real annoying with it.  I'm not kidding. This is the first and last time I do a sitting with you....I did enough for three years, I'm not doing it AGAIN. Try to get Lor to do it next time. 

so for those of you who don't know me....I used to model....once upon a time and I got out of it quickly because I realized one thing....I don't like sitting still....besides....I think I laughed at one too many photographers who told me to "look like a tree" or "hold the sexy in your eyes."  sorry...can't do it...I laugh.

Anyhow....it was a long day of sitting in front of Joe's camera....well...only two hours, but it felt like way too long. But on the plus side I got one good picture out of it.  I don't like my eyebrows...I need to change that, but of well.  Hope you like the pic.

Wolverine Review. Good times.

alright, so last night, well very early this morning I got to see the midnight showing of X-men Origins, Wolverine.

There's only three reason you go to a midnight show of any movie. 

1. You're a hardcore geek, and you just have to be the first to see it.

2. You're really bored and there's nothing else to do.

3. or you want to be submerged in the movie and refuse to go when the theater will be full of screaming babies and parents who are too dumb to hire a gosh damn babysitter. 

Me...I was going for a bit of all three...mainly the number one reason.

so...I went, Phillip, Gavin, Shannon and myself got tickets and met at the Block to watch the next installment from the X-Men universe, hoping beyond hope that we wouldn't be as disappointed about this movie as we were when we watched the almighty failure that was X-Men 3. 


moving on.

So the movie opens with Wolerine's childhood and the first time he sees his trademark claws. Then it quickly...and I do mean QUICKLY...moves you thru his teenage years and into adulthood, with his brother at his side. His brother turns out to be another mutant....remember the other furry mutant from X-Men 1 that liked to fight Wolverine alot?

....yeah...that dude. Sabertooth

anyway....shows his brother's decent into being feral, for lack of a better word, and where Wolverine learns to have compassion...a sense of morals. 

Anyhow...it also moves into some really fast paced fight scenes, a few actions pieces and some truly epic battles.  

I don't wanna break this down too much, so I'm gonna list some pros and cons. 

we'll start with the bad stuff first.


You'd have to be a pretty hard core X-men fan to recognize some of the mutants

The mutant Deadpool is seriously down played, and it sucks.

Some/ but not all of the special effects are pretty choppy.

It was really SHORT. under 2 hours. At times the movie felt rushed.


Gambit FINALLY makes an appearance. Geez, only take four movies for someone to use one of the most popular characters in X-Men. 

Wolverine's backstory is not what I had envisioned, but it was certainly entertaining as well as amusing.

Some/ but not all of the special effects are pretty cool

XAVIER LIVES!!! Take that X-3, you failed piece of film!!!

Yeah....theres a lot more to it, overall, I'm just trying to write something basic. Anyhow....

Overall, on a scale of 1 to 10....with 1 being "omg...my eyes are bleeding!!!" and 10 being "holy shit, this had better win a oscar!!!"  I give it a 6 or a 7....which in my book means: "Well...it was good. I liked some of it...but at the same time, I don't know if I'd see it again in theaters. Rent worthy? hell yes. But I don't think I'm gonna spend another $10 on it. Don't regret going either."

yeah...that pretty much sums it up.

Well...I hope all of you have fun watching it. it is pretty sweet. enjoy. 

p.s did anyone else know there's a actual CIRCUS at the block behind Ron Jon's old location now? I'm not kidding...there's a huge ass circus tent back there....I saw ponies. weird place for a circus.....

Are the handicapped ever happy?

OK...so I should probably start by saying that I work with the public.  A LOT.

I'm one of those people that when you go to an amusement park, you yell at cause something goes wrong, and its clearly my fault.  


Yeah...so anyhow.  

The other day...I was taking a group with a wheelchair up in a elevator...cause you know,I work at at theater and we try to accomdate...EVERYONE!!!! don't get me wrong, its cool and all...you can't do a lot of stairs...fine...whatever. it was a 101 stair climb after all....

okay...sorry rambling. Anyway...there's this lady in her wheelchair, in the elevator with her kids and she looks at me adn says "you should really make a wheelchair ramp..."

Now...look...to give you a idea of the height.....its a 101 stair climb to the top of our theater...where she insisted on sitting.....101 stairs...for those of you who aren't getting this...the average gentle incline wheelchair ramp covers maybe...like 5 steps...10 if you start a yard or two back from the building....

This lady for some reason just could not do the basic math.....101 stair climb= making a wheelchair ramp that starts a half mile back in our parking lot...and some poor bastard in your group pushing you for a half mile....seems kinda cruel, doesn't it?

Anyhow...look, lady...I'm taking you up in the elevator...no stairs!- you shutting the fuck up and enjoying the stupid music....
