Another one bites the dust.

Another year goes down in the history books. I have been thinking about this year a lot and I figure this was probably one of the more interesting years of my life. Not good, not bad, just interesting. It started off with my wife of seven, almost eight, years wanting a divorce. That started out ok but soon took a turn for the worse. I got over it but am still awaiting said divorce. I then got a girlfriend, a hot little number who up until then was just a friend from school. We never hung out or even talked much but I gave it a shot and am very happy I did.

I moved to Albuquerque for a few months with my Brother and his family and worked on two films. I moved back to R/C, went to school and became the V.P. of the Theatre Arts Club. My Grandfather passed away. I went to Washington for the funeral and saw family and friends I hadn't seen in years.

My other Brother went back to Iraq for his 2nd tour, this time armed with a camera. My computer died. I went to the Albuquerque Ballon Fiesta ( I actually went back and fourth to Alb. probably ten times) Thats all that pops up at the moment but I'm sure there are many more smaller stories and adventures. I wonder what 2009 has in store for me. Hope you all have a wonderful, safe and happy new year.

I should not of come here...

I never want to leave! Yesterday I drove over to the school I attended here as a child. It looks a lot different and a lot smaller than I remember. I then decided to go over to where my old house was and decided to stop by and old family friends house. Before I even got the nerve up to go to the door Carol came out to see who pulled in her driveway. I looked at her and said "Hi. It's Chad Terry." and she said, "Well yea, I'm looking right at you." hahaha. She was in her kitchen baking and cleaning and doing about a million things, just like old times. I said hello to some of her younger children who didn't remember me but were welcoming all the same, They got my Xbox gamer tag and now we will be playing Call of Duty together all the time.

Her older sons finaly came over and we got all caught up. One of them is going to school in Utah to become a lawyer and the other is a cop close to where my sister lives and I am going to go on a ride along with him tomorrow. it is so fun to see people I haven't seen in years and pick up as if no time has passed at all.

I awoke this morning to rain which quickly turned to snow which inadvertently will become slush due to the already wet ground. The weather looks like it should hold this way for quite sometime. I am going to be heading up to my old house today which is a few hundred or so feet higher in elevation than where I currently am. The snow should be sticking there I assume. I am also headed to a Christmas party for my sisters work. I am going to pick something up from Wal-Mart so i may participate in the gift exchange, that should be fun.

Yesterday I went to the natural history museum with my Sister, her Husband, two of my Nieces and one of my Nephews. We had a lot of fun, I took pictures but they are very similar to pictures I have taken there in the past just with different people so thats cool.

I went out last night to a place called The Launchpad. Its a cool little place down on Central that has all sorts of bands play. I saw on there web site that a band called Of God And Science were playing. I have heard of them before through the Giranimals and so I decided to check them out. I had a blast. I love going to this little place and seeing local bands do their thing, sometimes you get good stuff and sometimes you get crap. Well yesterday was a good day. All the bands that played were awesome. If you are ever in Albuquerque check out the Launchpad.

Today I went to my Brother-in-laws graduation. He got an associates degree in buisness or something or other, I never remember crap like that, but I am very proud and happy for him.

Tomorrow I have no idea what I'm going to do. everyone will be going to church so I'll need something to do. Maybe I'll go to the old record stores I used to go to. Any suggestions?

Off in a flash.

So I am now in Albuquerque. I am using my Sisters computer because mine is still a ginourmas paper weight. I drove through all night like I usually do, got here, had some breakfast, watched a movie and then fell asleep. I awoke to the sounds of Full House and thought "Well, I need to get out of this room." I guess I could have changed the channel because no one was watching it but I didn't feel like it. No plans today but I'm sure I will have plenty to write about on this trip.

Before I left R/C I gave someone my old '56 Ford pickup. We picked it up off of my ex's Mom's property. It's a project I was supposed to have done for my 16th birthday and seeing as its been ten years and nothing has happened with it, I gave it to someone whom restores cars so I feel good about where it is going. There was another car out there I think that was left for me, a 1966 Ambassador I think, but I couldn't get another trailer lined up before I left for Alb. I hope it's still there when I get back. If it is I will be extreamly happy. This car requires much less work and is very special to me.

If you have not been told already, I'm an asshole.

I'm not here to talk shit and I will do my best not to in the future, but I promise nothing. That being said my ex-wife, or more apropreatly my, "I wish you were my ex" wife has crossed a line. I have been trying my best to move forward in this matter and have been metting a brick wall. I just want it said clearly and plainly, if she has painted me in a bad light or talked trash in the past it's more than likely only a half truth, her side of the story. After some recent events I have decided to stop being nice. She has acused me of "bulling" her and now I have decided to own up to the moniker. What I am saying is, now if she says something bad about me, its more than likely true from this point on.

We got the stuff man.

Today Christian, Brittney and I went to Wal-Mart and Mervyns to get our "Teen" some gifts. We did it on behalf of the Theatre Arts Club, they all voted to take out of our account $100 to buy gifts with. Our Teen is 13 years old and is spending her holiday season at a womens shelter. We bought her an awsome CD player and threw in some headphones so she dosent bother anyone else. We also got her some shirts, haircare items and a winter set of matching gloves, scarf and hat. We spent a lttle more than $100 but we just took it out of our own pocket, why not huh. These are the things I ran for V.P of the Theatre Arts Club for. More good deeds to come soon.

Homeward bound.

Well my computer in now an ex-computer. It crashed the other night and I can not get it to turn on at all anymore. It had a good run and I should be able to get the info off the hard drive. This is my last night in the town of my birth. I have much to say but am leaving soon to get to the hotel by the airport for my early flight. My Grandfathers funeral was nice and I held up well, on the outside at least. I never have done well with these kinds of things but amazingly I didn't come unglued.

The speaches were beautiful as was the entire service. Many people know me as an over abundent picture taker but I took no pictures, save one... from the grave site looking out towards Mt. Rainer. My Grandfather took many many slides of the mountain and it was a clear enough day to see it. The rest I will save for my memory alone.

Old friends new friends.

I guess I should really call this "Friends from long ago" as to not imply that, A) My friends are old and 2) well I can't think of two at this point, my mind seems to have gone blank... Anyway, that being said I went out with a long time friend of mine last night and her boyfriend. I have known Nikki for... well for a long long time. My Father worked with her Mother up here in Washington and we were born in the same hospital. Not quite sure we met at that age but whatever. The first time I remember meeting her was in good old Ridgecrest when I moved there in the 5th grade. She a birthday party I was invited to and when my Dad walked me to the door her Mom answered and they both were suprised to see eachother in the same town, let alone tiny little R/C.

So anyways, we went out and had a great time. We only had time for one beer because she had to work in the morning but still it was good to see her and finally meet Tony. He seems pretty cool. He seems like a quiet guy but still like I said we only hung out long enough for a beer. We are all going to try and get together tonight because she doesn't work in the morning, he does but he owns his buissness so he can go in when he feels like it. It's great being up here amoung friends and family I just wish the circumstances were diffrent.

Part 2

Before we went to Sea World I was informed that my Grandfather had passed away. This saddens me greatly. I have not seen him in a few years but that in no way means I loved him any less. He lived in Washington for many years and that made it a little harder to visit him while I was in other states. I spent the first 5 or so years of my life in Washington as well and spent many days at his ocean front home with my Grandmother and him.
I am currently in Washington awaiting the funeral. I have had to miss this final week of play practice and I am sorry for that but I think, as do others, I have made the right choice. I will be back in R/C for the performances so the show will go on. I will write about the trip we did at Sea World soon but for now I will be visiting with family I have not seen for a few years now.

Thanksgiving part 2?

I went to Sea World with my kids. They liked it.

Saturday, November 29, 2008

Quick note.

My car told me I needed to "Add fuel" in her words. Went to the gas station here in Temecula filled up for $15.50.

Thanksgiving Part 1

So far the Thanksgiving weekend is going great, with only one minor hicup. My ex has let me have the kids for Thanksgiving which was awsome. The hicup is the time that was determined. Rather than being clear and definate, I was a little vauge with when they would be returning. Not on purpose, just because I didn't know exactily what we were doing or how long we would be. We all went out of town to my sisters house for Thanksgiving dinner and after that we went down to the San Deigo area with my brother and his family. We are taking all our kids to see a stage show and to Sea World and wont be back in R/C until Sunday. Part of the problem is that (I think) she hates my guts so if anything dosen't go her way, I'm doing it to be an asshole. Anyway, so the kids and I left Thursday morning to go to my sisters. My boys rode with my mom and my one of my nephews and I took my daughter and another nephew. The trip to my sisters is a long one, it took us about four hours. Before we left I filled my 52oz football cup with Mountain Dew so we needed a bathroom break which we took somewhere in Bear Valley. We stopped a second time just before going on base to put a person in my car that had a badge to get on base. As we were stopped in fornt of a BK my oldest son begain to spew red vomit like he was posessed. I found out he had been chowing down on some licorice. drinking soda, and rocking back and forth in the back seat of the car. Ahhhh, the best part of road trips, the person who gets car sick. I didn't expect it from him, usually its my middle child that gets sick but hey, what good are kids if they don't keep you on your toes. He finishes up and were back on the road for the last mile or so. We arrived at my sisters at about 12:30 and the feast was ready maybe 30 minutes later, which was good because by that time all the 52oz of Mountain Dew had givin me the shakes. We sat down and had a Thanksgiving dinner that couldn't be beat and watch some football. After the Seahawks royal beating we took some family pictures, visited and all that then headed on down to my brothers house. I followed my brother and he took a wrong turn somewhere and got us a few miles off course, but he pulled over and we put it in Rollie's nav computer and off we went, only about 15 miles out of the way. It was actually a very nice drive, I don't mind being lost, you see things you otherwise would never see. So here we are in Temecula, today; Old Towne and the Christmas show at the Welk. Tommorrow; Sea World and the happiest kids on earth.

What a day.

I woke up early today to go to Wal-Mart. Usually I go to spend money but this time I went to get some money. It was not for me exactily, Wal-Mart donated $200 to the Theatre Arts Club. A bunch of us from the club went to accept the donation and to take a photo for the newspaper. We had a lot of fun. Christian and I then went to the college to check up on some community stuff the club is particapating in and found out some interesting things. The blog for that will come later. We then went to order shirts for our upcoming show "Picnic", went home for a little break, then took Christian home so I could go to my friends house and work on mine and his movie we are writting. In the late afternoon I picked Christian back up and we went to the Boys and Girls club to help out like we have been doing every Friday. A very busy day, poorly written but well lived.

I wept like a child.

Yesterday I took a trip with my Theatre Arts Club to see a production of The Laramie Project in Bakersfield. I have been in this play here in Ridgecrest but being in a play and seeing it are two different things. Some things I saw I thought they did better and some things I thought we did better. Either way, I cried like a child who just dropped their ice cream cone in the dirt. It still amazes me with what degree people hate. Hopefully the world changes soon. Speaking of change, the "Classic Movie Night" we did went off great! We had over thirty people attend and got tons of food for the Salvation Army. One person brought in 9 cans alone. It actually gave me hope that people really are good. We are planning another "Classic Movie Night" for the Christmas season so keep checking back for details.

Saturday, November 8, 2008


My weekend has started off pretty well, I get to have my kids and some family members from out of town are going to be here too. When I was growing up I was close to my cousions and I hope my kids are too. Last night Christian and Audrey made cookies together and we each got to decorate one. The boys and I have been playing games together today, mostly call of duty 4 but now that I have wireless internet we can play computer games together as well. Yesterday I went to the newspapers in town and asked them if they could interview/run a story about the Theatre Arts Club and all we have planned, they both agreed and I think it's actually me thats going to be interviewed, thats kinda cool. We have been doing alot with the club and I just want to get the word out that we are actually doing someting.

Early to bed, early to rise.

I didn't do much yesterday evening so I decided to go to bed early. I stayed up for SNL for the first time in a long time then headed off for sleep. Now as many of my readers (all three of you) know, 1:00 a.m. is early for me. I didn't want to go to sleep I was just bored so I took a pill to aid in my battle with insomnia, nothing big, just an over the counter melatonin. I actually had great sleep and an amazingly realistic dream that I can not recall at this time. I woke up early this morning, messed around on line for a bit and watched football. I finally decided to take a shower, and help my girlfriend move a few boxes at her house. I then went over to a friends house to watch more football. I was battling it out for first place in my division in my fantasy league and I kicked ass. Now I'm home for the sunday night line up on fox...Hope tomorrow is more eventful.

I must be slipping.

I did the final night of the spook house and it went great, I made kids cry :) As I was there until 11 I was unable to go to a party and that annoyed me a little bit but we all must make sacrifices for the things we want to do. Not to mention I could spend some alone time with my girlfriend. That being said I woke up feeling great, no hangover and I'm up early. I decided to check on some blogs and had more to read than I really wanted but I read anyway. During the day yesterday my girlfriend and I carved pumpkins and my friend came over and we started writing our movie again. He had moved away and it made it a little difficult to work on but getting back into it, we have made some good changes. I can't wait to get back into acting for a living, right now I am doing it but not being paid and not being paid makes it hard to live.

Thursday, October 30, 2008

Final night.

The CLOTA spook house's last night is tomorrow night from 6 to 11 at the U.S.O. building in Ridgecrest. It's a lot of fun everyone should go. I am also going to be helping out the boys and girls club like I do every Friday, carve pumpkins again and start work on my movie once again. The person I am writing this with and I have decided to get the damn thing done. We are now going to treat it as it should have been from the begining, like work. Another fun filled weekend.

Quick week, long weekend.

This past week has gone by rather quickly, well up until this weekend that is. I did my regular stuff during the week, school mostly but my pool leauge started this tuesday and that was fun, even though I had to play a killer team. On friday though all my Theatre Arts Club stuff begain. It started off with preview day at the college. I woke myself up early, which is a rarity, and got up to the college by 9:30 A.M. What we all did was put on a quick little 30 minute improv show for the high school students before they took tours of the school. It was great, they are a tough crowd but we got them laughing and participating with us. We did have two little slips, one of us made fun of the college and another said "shit" Not to big a deal but I hope we dont get into trouble for it. After our show we hung around and passed out some fliers about the theatre degree we offer and we promoted the hell out of our car wash which was to be held the next day. We finished up there and I went and got myself ready for the spook house I'm helping out with. I play the young priest from the exorcist movie. It started around 6:00 P.M. and went until 11:00. We scared the crap out of some people, it was great. My favorite is when high school boys run out screaming. When it was over I went home to go to sleep. I got up the next morning early again and went to our car wash to help set up. I had to be at the spook house by 9:00 A.M. because we were doing one during the day for the younger kids. I dressed up as a Ghostbuster and if anyone needed me, I was there to zap away the ghosts. It was amazing how old some of the people were that wanted my help. I did that until 3:00 P.M. when it closed. I had to be back at 5:00 P.M. to change myself back into the priest. There was a street fair going on so I just stayed there, got a bite to eat and walked around. I went back to work and didn't get done until 11:00 P.M. and let me tell you, my feet were hurting bad. So today I took it easy, football and a couch, thats it.

Saturday, October 18, 2008

What a weekend!

This weekend is starting out great. I got my kids for the weekend and we started it off yesterday by going to the pumpkin patch to get ourselves ready for carving them today. We aslo got pizza and rented a few movies for the night, my Daughter even lost a tooth! Today we woke up and went to the parade, well me and Audrey went, the boys didn't want to go. We are now all getting ready to go to a couple of little carnivals at the local churches to have even more fun before we start carving our pumpkins and tomorrow we are going to the big fair to watch the destruction durby. I always perk up a little bit when I have my kids around me, especialy when there are things to do around town which is rare.

May I please catch my breath?

I have been all over the place lately. I went to Albuquerque last weekend for a Balloon festia trip which was great, came home did school then went up into the mountains. Camping was great even though it got as cold as 19 degrees. We mostly hung out near the fire all day and night but it was fun to get out there all the same. Christian and I spent most of the time telling eachother we loved one another while the other couple spent of their time fighting. It was comical at times and awkward at times. I even stopped by the ranch I used to work at and said hi to some old friends. As soon as I got back from camping I had to make an emergency trip to Albuquerque. The details of the trip are privet but I was there for less then 24 hours. I think I spent more time driving there and back then I spent in Albuquerque. I went over my lines and am progressing slowly with that. I will be ready come show time though. So I have been away from my computer for about a week and a half and boy did I miss it. I have so much to catch up on.

Tuesday, October 7, 2008

So tired.

As I am still very tired, I warn you, this might not make much sense. I went to Albuquerque and Soccoro this weekend to see my sister and help a friend move back to Ridgecrest. I had fun in Soccoro but the night ended early for me due to lack of sleep and too much booze, a bad combination. It didn't seem like so much booze but I think with the combination of being awake somewhere betweeen 36 to 40 hours, did its number. I spent one night there and spent the rest of the weekend with my sister. I acually didn't tell her I was coming down and suprised her at work...she cried. Tears of joy I hope. We ended up going to the Balloon Fiesta for the Balloon glow, but it was cancelled due to weather. We woke up the next morning to go see the balloons actually fly but again, cancelled due to weather. I decided to stay one more night and go in the morning for one more shot and...almost cancelled due to weather. They got a late start but I got to see them for the first time in years. I don't know what it is about Hot Air Balloons but I love them very much. My sister and I had a great time with her daughter at the Feista but unfoutunatly her Husband had to work. He is a cool guy and has many of the same interestes as I do. When we hung out with him it was great. We didnt do much other than watch a few episodes of Flight of the Concords, which is funny as hell, but it was a great time. I made it safe back to Hell...I mean Ridgecrest and am now busy as a bee. I also intend to get flicker on here to share pics soon as well. Don't hold your breath though.

Busy Busy Busy.

I have become so incedibly busy lately that I can't get everything done and please everyone at the same time. It's a change for me to actually be busy with important things rather than just stupid stuff. The Theater Arts Club went out and helped the boys and girls club. We played some games with them and hads a great time. It's nice to see us as a club doing something with the comunity. I am also spending the weekend with my kids and a bunch of nephews and neices. It is going great and we are about to go watch my nephews football game. After that we will be having a pizza party at my moms house and on Sunday we are going to BBQ at my friends house and celebrate her dogs first birthday. They grow so fast.

A couple days with my kids.

So I got back home from Vegas. Tuesday my father was in town and my ex let me have our kids so we could all go to dinner. I don't think they have seen eachother since Thanksgiving last year. We had mexican at Casa Carona and had a blast. I invited my girlfrind Christian so she and my dad could meet. It went great. After dinner their mother came and picked them up and I asked if I could take them to the Circus. She said yes but was a little reluctant because she wanted to take them as well. In the end she agreed I could take them and I am (and was) very greatful for that. Fast forward to Thursday. I get the kids dropped off to me and head to the Circus. We get our tickets, go in and see all the animal's there; Lamas, Ponys, Horses, Elephants...even a Hippo! The Elephants were giving rides at six dollars a ride. I asked the kids if they wanted to do it and Miss A. was to scared, Mr. A. wasn't interested and Mr. J. said "YEA!" We got him on his quick little ride and then went in to see the Circus. We met up with Christian and her little bro and had a wonderful time watching the Circus. During intermission Miss A. got her face painted like a cat. I don't care what anyone says, my daughter is the most beautiful thing on this planet and I have pictures to prove it. Anyway, so the Circus ends and Mr. A didn't get anything. I only had five dollars left and all he wanted was a snow cone. Snow cones were two fifty so I told the other to I would get them one but they had to share which they were not to keen on. I explaned that one got an Elephant ride and the other got a face painting so he got his own snw cone. As I got the snow cones Mr A. told me to ask for a cup to split it with so I did, the response was "two fifty." I said "Two fifty for an empty cup?" to which I got "It's two fifty per cup, empty or full." We then walked away and I said sorry guys. The next thing I know a guy comes up to me and hands me a five dollar bill. He said "Here you go. You two get one too." My children and I thanked him and got the extra snow cones and we all hung out together eating them and getting brain freaze. I had such a great time with my kids and am happy to know there are some good people left in this world.

I am back from vegas.

As you can tell I did not win the jackpot, so sorry, no car this time Helga. I did have a great time though. I spent time with my Mom, My sister-in-law- Karissa, and an old friend Cheri that was getting married. I didn't make it to Vegas until Fri. evening, first thing I did was take a shower then we went to Nine Fine Irishmen for dinner and to watch the band play. They were great like always. If you have been there let me know if you danced or have seen the little old lady that goes there every night, if you have share storys and photos with me. Mine will be up soon. We stayed there until about two A.M. and then went to Tropicana to gamble a little. Nothing to exciting, but we stayed out until about five and then got a cab back to the room. I woke up around noon all alone because all the girls went to get their nails done. I met up with them at The nail place after my shower and waited around there until they were done. When they were all done and pretty Karissa and I headed over to the dirt mall where she got a smaller purse and I got one of Gimlie's axe's from Lord of The Rings. We then went to get ready for the wedding. The service was nice and it was short. We took alot of pictures and cant wait to give them to Cheri and her husband. After the wedding it was off to Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino. It was just me and Karissa because everyone else had to change so we stopped on the way and got these little 25 or so ounce drinks in cute little cups that had a guitar on the front. We then finished our walk to Planet Hollywood and walked around a bit waiting for the rest of our party and while waiting I saw a guy with a real looking guitar cup, it is shaped like a guitar, neck and all, and had a strap to wear it like a guitar....I had to have one. Karissa asked where we could find them and he pointed us to the the bar I needed and we went straight there. I waited in line and asked how much it was and how much it held to which the answer was "32.00 dollars and its 88 ounces. For 2 more bucks you can get an extra shot." I smiled and said "Yes please." Again, pics will be up soon. To make the rest of the story as short as possable, we then ate at P.F. changs and it was great, stayed out extra late again that night. Next day sunday, Wake up around noon, get ready, go eat at dick's that was funny, then off to the gun store to fire weapons. I ordered a packeage deal and shot A pistol (can't remember what one) An M16 and the S.A.W. it even comes with a shirt. Karissa shot the M16. I took video of it and she looks nervous and pale when the guy is telling her what to do. We got some good pictures there and then went to a Halloween store and got some halloween costumes. We then went to the condo, packed up and went home. I got Karissa home in Temecula and then I went home around two A.M. just because I wasn't all that tired. I got to R/C at 5 A.M. and unpacked and feel asleep. Good times good times.

What do you think?

So I was watching a U.F.O show tonight and got to thinking...What do you all believe out there? I believe it is a very real possibilty that they are actual E.T. crafts but I don't put 100% belief in that. I have seen very strange things in the sky but also keep in consederation that I am near/on a very large air weapons base. I also understand that our world is filled with very strange things. Taking that into consideration, our universe is not only huge, but not even close to being understood in its fulliest. I am 100% sure there is life in our universe somewhere other than earth, but how much of that is intelligent life, I just don't know...Look at whats considered intelligent life here on Earth.

My patch!

This is what I have done with my badass patch. I've made it even more badass by adding the Dropkick Murphys to it...or have I made the Dropkick Murphys more badass? You be the judge.

A quick thought on the rich and famous.

I heard that the Dark Knight movie is being rereleased so the oscar comity can keep it in mind. My question is, what oscar(s) is that movie going to get and how many? I think its impossible to say that Heath Ledger won't get the best supporting actor, or something along those lines, and I say this for more reasons other than "well, it's his last role, he should get it." A friend of mine first told me Heath was playing the Joker back when he was still alive and we both were very excited about it. He looked nothing like him self in the first pictures i saw of the character. I have seen him in many movies and this was the first time that I saw him play a character that was compleatly diffrent from him self, not that I knew him personally but you know what I mean. I hope he does recieve the oscar I believe he earned not because he passed away unexpectedly but because he deserves it. I am an actor my self and can't wait for the day I can play a character as interesting as the Joker and as disimiler from me as possable. And I can't wait to do as good a job, or better, than he did. Again I say, Congrats on a geat life, and great career Heath Ledger.

What now?

I won!!!!! I am VP of the theatre arts what?

What an all over the place day.

Today started out like all my days, boring. The thing is my "day" starts in the afternoon and so during the moring to until my "day" starts I am sitting around bored off my ass. I wish I could find something to do which is constructive but I simply lack the insperation or motivation to do anything. Hopefully I get unstuck soon. I called my "boss" this afternoon and told him I needed traing up here in Ridgecrest and he asked "You haven't been trained?" to which I replied "Well, somebody came up here for an hour or two and showed me around the computer but I tried I actually have no clue what I'm doing." as he breathed a sigh of frustration he said "I will have someone call you" which they have not. The job only pays about 25 dollars a week and im not sure thats worth the frustration, but that does pay for my cell phone. After that frustrating call, I hate talking to people, I went up to school a little early to sign up for a weightlifting class. I met with Mr. Ernst and I told him my situation and he is getting me on track with getting bigger. He explaned most everyone wants to tone so they do smaller amounts of weight with about 8-10 reps, but I need as much weight as I can lift with only one or two reps, a few minutes to cool off and then do it again. I only have a few machines I am working with because I am mainly working on my upper body. After that I went to my theater production class. We had a saftey meeting so we all know how to be safe with tools and how we deal with things if someone does get hurt, which is usually find Chad and the first aid kit. We then started on blocking, fun fun fun. Unfourtunatly while we were being dismissed someone fell and hurt them selves on the stairs. We decided because it happened at school the best course of action was to get a report on it and take said injured person to the E.R. for them to be examened, I drove them there and waited until they were in the proper care of others before leaving, hope all is well.

Stuck again.

So its been awhile, I just wish there was a pause button for life so I could just take time to breath or think or catch up on shit. I am sure everyone feels this way so me bitching about it seems a little lame so lets just say I'm bitching for all of us out there. I have had an ok week and hope things get better. I spent this last weekend drunk out of my head for one last binge before getting in shape, it didn't work out so good. I had fun and all but up to a point, latly I've just been feeling like I'm stuck in a rut, probably because I am stuck in a rut. I have many more hurdles to jump before getting this whole devorice thing finalized and that sucks, I thought December I would be done with it but alas, things have not worked according to plan. That is most likely the cause of much of the stress I have beeen feeling lately. On a brighter side of things my big sis sent me my patch from a give away she did. I was so excited when I saw the envolope to see what I got, I actually waited until I went to school and came back to hold on to the suprise. When I opened the envolope I found a sweet little card and the Crater Lake patch, I didn't know what I was going to do with it until I went in my room and saw my Dropkick Murpys soccer jersy. The colors match and I think a jersy is a good place for a patch. Other than that life has been life, not enough hours in the day to get things done, not enough hours at night to sleep well but to many hours to enjoy any of it. I can't wait to get out of here again.

General shizzy.

So it's been almost a week of me being smoke free and I think I'm doing pretty good, I have had cravings but I'm trying out this new fad to help me quit, I think its called "self control". Its an interesting little tool and I wonder how long it has been in practice around the world. Classes are going good but I always hate the begining, it always seems so slow and I want to cut right to the good stuff and skip all the weird shit (thankyou very much voice class) I'm not trying to "campign" right now but as I have said before I am running for Vice-President of the theater arts club. I have many ideas and want the club to have more members, more fun, and more particapation. So if you have a chance Go to the theater arts club meeting Thursday at 7:30 p.m. even if you dont intend to vote for me, the more people that are there the better the club will be. O.K. enough of that...for now. Tonight I am going to go watch the fight at a friends house. I don't know exactly who is fighting but I love to watch a good sporting event. As per my new reulations of working out, I have decided I am going to walk there. Its not to far away but I think I will leave an hour early and stop by the store for a beer or two for the fight. I haven't been in shape for about 10 years probably so I am excited to see how much better I will feel in general.

Another smokless day.

I have decided to run for Vice President of the theatre arts club. I have a lot of free time and want to get into doing more for and with the club. We will see how that goes. I have found out that for the part I got in the play I am going to need to work my ass off. I don't think I need to lose weight as much as gain muscle mass, so I am going to be walking, running, doing sit ups, pull ups as much as I can. It's strange the things we will do for one thing but not ourselves. Maybe I'll do a before and after pic.

And the results are in.

I got the part I wanted! The character is Hal and the play is Picnic by William Inge. When I got the cast list I looked down to find my name and saw that I got the part of Hal and I smiled...then paniced. I am confident I will do a great job but before I memorize my parts I always have a fear of not being able to. I always get it done in the end but the fear is still there. Also still not smoking :)

Tuesday, September 2, 2008


So I did not smoke today. I was around people that were smoking, I wanted to smoke but did not, yea. We will see how the next few days go. Tomorrow I find out what part (if any) I get in the newiest play at Cerro Coso called "Picnic" by William Inge. This is the first play that I have been involved with at the college that parts were not guaranteed for everyone who auditioned. I am confident I have a part but I am unsure if I am getting the part I want most.

I am a quiter

I have decided to actually try to quit smoking. I do this not for my health or any good reason other than the smell is begining to bother me a little. It will be hard because a lot of my friends smoke but they are great friends and I'm sure will be supportive. On the health side of it I figure if I'm gonna quit, I might as well try a healthy lifestyle for a bit. I figure all it will take is changing a few habits. I know that habits are a hard thing to break or change but I figure if I really put my mind to it I can do it. I'll be healthier, stronger, happier and all around feeling better. I will try to post daily with my progress.

I haven't been writing a lot latley, like I said was going to happen. That sucks, I actually love to write, especialy when I know how to spell something correctly without looking it up and when I stumble upon some hidden person inside me that actually writes well (see past blogs) At any rate life has been... going for me. I say "going for me" because it's not going horrable, or going super, it's just going. One thing I have found is that I am way to involved with myspace apps and have decided to add no more. I almost decided to delete the ones I had but didn't due to the height I have reached in them. I find it a complete waste of my time and yet can not pull myself away from it. It's a sickness. In other news Christain and I saw Pineapple Express today. First thing is first, would I recomend this? (weed) Yes but wait for DVD. It just seemed that there were (weed) things put into it for one joke to work but then they never went back to (weed) finish how it would play out and they recycled (weed) somethings a bit too much. I also believe that the previews are misrepresnting (weed) the story line a bit. I don't know, maybe I'm just an asshole, you let me know if you see it. I really don't know what else to say about it other than I found it amusing and I enjoyed it but could have enjoyed it just as much or better (on weed) at home. Oh, and Rosie Perez is in it. God bless her. She still trys.

Life in R/C

I am now in R/C full time.I have been here what seems like a week already but I beleive it has been closer to 2 or 3 days. My insomnea has already grabbed ahold of me, I have not been to bed before 5 a.m. since I have been here. This place is strange. On the lighter side of things I got to see and hang out with my kids. There were a few bumbs on the way to see them but then it worked out. I was so happy to see them and they were happy to see me. I gave them their gifts I had been collecting for them and they seemed to enjoy them. They were not big toys or anything like that so I think they might have been dissapointed a little but they did seem as though they were just happy that I gave them things. I love my children so much and it pains that I can not see them every day. If you have ever met my kids you would know how incredibly awsome they are as people and how proud i am to be able to say I am their father.

Back in the U.S.S.R/C Part 2

I awoke this morning at seven to find a thick fog covering the town, I thought to myself "Self, This could put a damper on my plans." Christian and I went ahead and packed up our stuff anyway. I couldn't fit a few boxes of books in the car but my brother said he would pack them when he comes out this way, very cool. After the car was all packed I took a shower while Christian took a little nap. When I was all clean and shiny we said our good bye's to my brother (more like "see you soon's") and got into the car, the fog had lifted and we had a nice overcast drive out of town, we even spotted a couple of hot air balloons on our way out which made me really happy. We made a few stops along the way, one of which I picked up some petrified wood for my kids and on another fossillized sharks teeth and yet another some postcards. It's not much but its going into the monkey heads I have mentioned before and so they will have a lot of little things to go through and learn about. Through out the drive we went into and out of light to heavy rain and when we stopped in Flagstaff, the lightning was so close the thunder was defening, but we played in the sunflowers and took pictures anyway. The drive was great together although I did find myself drifting back to thoughts of not wanting to be on the 40 going west. I had had a great time where I was with my brother and my sister and there respective families. I even got a new friend. There were things I didn't do as well because I figured I had time, like hang out with old friends or even contact others. I guess that just shows me how much time I have, I waste, and will never get back... Anyway, so we roll into Barstow to pick up Christians car as I'm thinking of all that stuff but also I'm building up Ridgecrest and California telling myself it won't be that bad if I keep an open mind and keep it positive. She gets in the car and the battery is dead. California, strike one. I actually thought it was kinda funny and thought to myself "Self, it's good shes not here alone like she was supposed to be." So I was ready to leave the car and continue on to deal with it the next day when I remembered... I'm a AAA member. I pulled my card out of my wallet and for the first time since becoming a member 4 years ago, I called for assistance. It took the guy five minutes to get there and we were all set. There was some accumilated bird poop on the windshield so we stopped at a corner gas station for the squiggie and when we pulled up we didn't see it. I went inside to ask about it, figuring maybe they had a theft problem with it in the past so they kept them behind the counter. The conversation went like this, "Excuse me, do you have those squiggies to clean windshields?" I ask. "No." Is the quick response, I wait for more, like a sorry or something and get nothing so I say "Uh, ok well um, do you maybe have some windex or something I could borrow real quick?" "Yea, what's on the shelf." She says sacasticly, seeming proud of her "quick witted" reply. STRIKE TWO CALIFORNIA! I was so pissed I actually left with out saying a word and it put me in a pretty bad mood the rest of the way home. I know strike three is just around the corner. Needless to say I am in R/C safe and (mostly) sound. I hope this makes sense as it is very late at the time of writting.

Last day in Abq.

Today I took Christian to the swap meet at the Albuquerque fair grounds. We walked around for awhile looking at all the items people were selling. Some were pretty cool, like knives, swords...well ok thats pretty much the cool stuff. And some of it was kinda crappy like $5 for a Beatles album that was taped together and the record inside was no where near playable, and underware. It's interesting to see people selling underware, its more interesting to see people buying it. I did find a shirt I wanted though, just a simple yellow shirt with a Zia on it with the words "New Mexico" underneith it. Christian didn't seem interested in buying anything but had fun looking around. We begain to get hungry so we grabbed a quick bite, a corn dog for Christian and a breakfast burrito with green chili for me. We were full but I decided to get indian fry bread for Christian to try for the first time, she basicaly had an orgasim in her mouth when she bit into it, so I think she liked it. After finishing her orgasim on a plate we headed over to the horse track. It was opening day and Christian had never been to a horse race before so we made a little wager, and I mean little, $2. We went outside to watch the race and low and behold...we did not win, but it was fun to try. We stuck around and watched a few races, one of which a Jocky fell from their horse and hit the side rail. I didn't see it first hand as I was taking pictures as I always do but I did see the ambulance pull up and seeing the Jocky not moving. I was a bit away to see if there was actually movement or not but the E.M.T.'s loaded him up quick and rushed him off. Hope he's doing well. It started raining so we decided we would call it a day and head home. It was still preatty early afternoon so we watched a scary movie as per Christians request. The movie was Evil Dead and she freaked out at some of the more scary parts but I was there holding her close :) When the movie was over we decided to go to a used video store called Hastings and get Evil Dead 2 bring it home and watch it again holding on to keep her safe. When that was over we made it a true Evil Dead marathon and watched Army Of Darkness, not so scary but still holding close. We had a great time just relaxing and watching the movies. Now I am mostly packed and ready for our drive out to R/C tomorrow morning. h if I hadn't mentioned it before, we refunded Christians ticket and she and I will be driving back together with a quick stop to pick up her car in barstow.

Missing day.

Yesterday Christian and I did absolutly nothing. We sat around all day and watched T.V. I took some Tylonal P.M. because I wasent feeling well and slept most of the day away. Today however we left the house around 11:30 for lunch. We went to a place called Twin Peaks. I love the old ninty's show of the same name but they are not related I found out. It is like a Hooters only with a more outdoorsy theme. It was fun, the food was good and the girls wore very little, a great combination. After lunch we came back home and watched Thundercats for a while. When 5:30 rolled around we went over to my sisters house for dinner. She made some sort of roast and it tasted fantastic, she is very good in the kitchen. We sat around eating and visiting with her and her family for awhile. I probably wont see them again before I leave on Sunday, which sucks, so I had a wonderful time but it was also a little sad. It was great living so close to her and having our lunch dates, it's been about sixteen years since we have lived in the same town and I enjoyed all the time I was able to spend with her. Tomorrow will be Christian and my last day in Albuquerque, we plan on going to the swap meet at the fair grounds so she can smell the greatest smell on earth, roasting green chili's. It's also opening day for the horse race's and its all in the same area so we might stop by to see that too.

Long day.

Holly crap did we do a lot today. We started the day off by saying good bye to Karissa and the kids. I then started up the internet and let Christian sleep in for a while. I got some emailing done I need to do and also messed around with my myspace apps, damn I am suck. When Christian finally woke up we watched an episode of Thundercats and had some breakfast, waffles for Christian, cold fajitas for me. By this time my brother had gone to work and Christian and I were alone, spareing you all the details, we decided to get ready for the day and took a shower. Lunch time was rolling around so we decided to go to Red Lobster for lunch. It was great food and we enjoyed a nice meal alone. After lunch we took a short drive around my old neighberhood and then up to the tram. The Albuquerque tram is the longest in the world and takes you to the top of the Sandia Mountain. The ride to the top cost $17.50 for me and $15.00 for Christian because they consider 20 as teenage. On the ride up some people started talking to Christian (I was off in my own little picture taking world) and asked where she was from. When she said Ridgecrest these people actually knew where she was talking about. They didn't have anything bad to say about the place but did mention a creepy little town outside of Ridgecrest but couldn't remember the name but it came back to them when I said "Trona?" Aperantly they were on travel to Death Valley and were very scared as they drove through it. Once at the top we said goodbye to the strangers, took pictures and went on a short walk but turned around to grab a quick drink at the resturant there at the top. Christian had her usual Hot Chocolate and I had an Irish Coffee and Green Chili Stew. It was all very nice and warming, the weather at the top of the mountain was slightly windy, a little rain and 65 degrees. After warming ourselves up in the resturant we went back out on the trails and walked one and a half miles to an old outpost that was some sort of shelter for rescue teams searching for lost hikers and skiers. The hike was beautiful and many of the rocks had fossil's of sea life from eons ago when most of what is now New Mexico, was under water. We hiked another mile and a half back to the tram for our ride back down. Once at the bottom we jumped a few streets over to an Ice Skating Rink that I had spent many of my childhood days in. Christian was about as excited as a fat kid eating a cupcake. It was great to see the smile on her face as she clumisly tried to skate on the slick ice. She got the hang of it pretty quick and was skating in circles and even on one foot. Our feet were hurting pretty bad as we had been hiking a few moments earlier and ice skates were new to us. We had enough of the pain about two hours into it and decided, hesitently, to call it a night. We turned in our skates and watched a little bit of the hockey game going on in the rink on the other side of the building. We finnaly decided it was bed time for the both of us. It was another amazing day with my amazing girl in an amazing city. Tomorrow is lounge day.

Another fun day.

Today was another early day. I got pretty good sleep but woke up a few times due to the extreme heat of having another body under the sheets next to me. Christian and I woke up, took our showers, got ready and headed out by 9. The first stop we made was to the train station to refund her ticket, I figured if I'm leaving the same day why not just have her ride with me. After that we went down the street to the Natural History Museum. We got tickets to see the Planetarium show as well. The museum is so interesting, the first thing you see as you enter is a huge Tyranosauras Rex "roaring" straight at you. Although natural history includes things like minerals and land movment my favorites have always been the Dinosaurs, and apperantly still are. I took a lot of pictures of these ancient dead beings trying to imagine what it would have been like had they not become ex-beings. How would have humanity gotten along with these preditors around? Would technology have developed the same way? Or would they still be exctinct because of our actions? At any rate its an amazing museum with so many things to do and see, there is even a valcano that you walk through with hot liquid magma running right under your feet! I remember vividly as a child nerviously walking only on the parts with no lava. I wasen't stupid, that glass could break if I steped on it, then where would I be? On fire in a volcano thats where. The show at the plaentarium was amazing. The universe is so unimaginably large, complex, violent and beautiful. I can not wait for the day we travel to the far reaches of it and unlock the secrets she has in store for us. We rounded off the day with a short walk to Old Town for lunch at the Church st. Cafe (thanks celia) The food was great, I had fajitas and Christian had a breakfast meal, I'm still trying to get her to try the native cusine. I have gotten her to try green chili twice, once at the zoo which she didn't like and at the cafe which she did like. After lunch we walked around Old Town for awhile but decided to leave because we were both very tired and need a poop break. We got home at 4:30 and laid down for an hour nap. When we woke up at 6:30 (yea, thats a long hour) we came down and hung out with Karissa and the kids waiting for Gillian, her kids, my sister Reash, her husband Mike and there little girl. They all came over, we talked, had coffee and just hung out enjoying eachothers company. It was another great day and I am pleased I can share it whith Christian. And how are we planning on ending this great day you ask. Yes, another round of Thundercats :)

Fun in the sun.

Christian got in Yesterday around noon and I picked her up at the train station. I showed up early as I always do and noticed a movie set base camp just across the street, there are so many things going on here I am sad to leave. Anyway, after picking her up we went down to Socorro to stay with a friend f mine for the night before taking him to the airport in the morning. We went to sleep pretty early because we had to leave by six in the morning. So we woke up nice and early and came back to Albuquerque this morning with a quick stop at the airport to drop off the friend we had been visiting the night before. We got to my brothers house, took our showers and ate some breakfast. Then we headded off to the zoo. We got there around ten this morning and met up with a friend of Karissas. We had a good time looking at all the animals and playing around with the kids, unfortunatly a couple of them took some tumbles. We ate lunch in the grassy field by a small pond with a swan and sme ducks which was lovely. After lunch we went to the jungle gym so the kids could play in the water and swing around like monkeys. My brother had to work so he and his family said there good byes as did Karissas friend. So me and Christian were finally alone for the first time :) We hung out at the zoo a little while longer and saw every single exibit that was open. We even saw the 250 pound tortise walk! We had walked all day long and on our way out I bought three monkey head lunch boxes for my children, they should get a kick out of that. We stopped at Wal-Mart on the way home to get a new frisbee (I'm addicted now) and found a $.75 one that will never be able to cut me due to its flexable nature. We played around with that for about an hour and then had some dinner. And after dinner? Thunder, Thunder, Thunder, Thunder Cats Hoooooooo! I finally got to watch some good old cartoons I have been waiting forever to see. We had a wonderful day together and are waking up early again tomorrow and going to the Natural History Museum. I can't wait!

Saturday, August 9, 2008


Christian will be here tomorrow around noon and I couldn't be happier. We will visit museums, the zoo, caves, and ride the worlds longest tram. I am so happy that she can spend time with me here before I go back to R/C. We will be able to see eachother whenever we want which will be good but there is so much more to do and see here.

Ouch damnit!

Well I didn't do much of anything today. I woke up and went to my sister's house to feed her dogs and then went straight back to my brother's house because we were going to go to chuckie cheeses for lunch so I needed to shower and all that. We went to chuckie cheeses for awhile, ate some pizza, played some games, got some prizes. We then went home and I did nothing while Karissa packed. After what seemed like an enernity I picked up one of those prizes the kids got...a mini frisbee. I picked it up and tossed it at Karissa and thus began a game of "if you don't catch it, you move to where it landed and throw it from there". Not only is that the name of it, those are also the rules. Well the child who owned the frisbee wanted it back so he got us a regular sized one to play with in trade. So with this being a normal sized frisbee we moved the game outside. We had more room to play in and more obsticals to deal with, the frisbee even went over the fence a few times. This frisbee had been outside for some time it seemed and was sun damaged to the point where it cracked but was still useable...until we broke it in half. We put our heads together and found some tape that held it together pretty well. Now we had been tossing this thing around for at least an hour or so and as Karissa tossed it to me I went to catch it and it bounced off my middle finger and onto the ground. I said an audible "ouch" and shook my finger, Karissa was waiting for me to move and pick it up and toss it to her when I looked down at my finger and saw that the cracked frisbee "idea" was a bad idea indeed, my finger was bleeding from the deep gash I sustained from the sharp edges. I didn't pick up the frisbee and started to go inside to clean it all up and Karissa looks at me and says "Seriously?" as if to say "You fucking pussy, you don't want to play anymore because the frisbee bounced off your finger...Pussy." Then I simply look at her, lift my middle finger and she says "Oh my gosh!" as if to say "I'm sorry I was such a dirty bitch to you just now." and follows me inside to get it washed and bandaged. I had so much fun though, I need to go get a new, non sun-dried, cracked, split in half, taped together frisbee to play with :)

My adventure.

I woke up today with a mission. As I am going to be in Ridgecrest for the next play I decided to look for the play we are doing so I could read it ahead of time and be prepared for auditions. I decided to drive around to the book stores in town rather than call around so it would get me out of the house and give me something to do. I drove from place to place wich took about 2 hours or so and did not find what I was looking for but I did find a book called "The secret diary of Laura Palmer" by Jennifer Lynch. I had to have it and it only cost $4.50! Jennifer Lynch is the daughter of Twin Peaks co-creator David Lynch so I'm guessing she had a pretty good insight as to what needed to be in the "diary". I am a huge Twin Peaks fan and cant wait to jump right into this book. That was my suprise. After going all around town book searching I started to become hungy and decided to stop at St. Clair winery for some lunch and a flight of wine tasting. I had a tuna and artichoke heart sandwich which was great and decided on the spot to give myself a present. I ordered the conolli for desert. It was a little gift to myself just for fun and it tasted great as well. Tonight after I feed my sisters dogs its back to my brothers house for some more wine and a movie.

Things happen for a reason.

"Things happen for a reason" has got to be one of my most hated sayings, ever.

Sunday, August 3, 2008

I will miss it here.

I have had a great time in Albuquerque. That being said, I hate that I (most likely) have to leave. I don't want to leave for many reasons but one of the biggest reasons is my sister. I have had a great time and appreceate everything my brother S and his wife K have done for me but my oldest sister and I have not had the opertunity to spend time with eachother until now. I love all my family members very much but Big E and Reash I have always wanted to be like. I also believe that Big E got a lot of who he is from her and I got it through him. I dont really knw how to explane how and how much I love my sister. She wanted me to watch her house and take care of her dogs while she was (and is) away. I think before she asked me she knew I would say yes. After I actually said yes (and yes she did not make an ASS out of U and ME) she told me how much she was going to pay me. I wasent offended but I was. If I can do something for you I will, I dont expect to be paid unless there is a cost for what I am to do and I dont have the money. If I do have the money then no problem. Anyway, I love my sister and am glad to be house/dog sitting for her. Oh and next to the green chili they have here, I will miss this...

I hate waiting.

Everything seems to happen to me all at once or not at all. I had two job interviews and an audition for a cartoon. The cartoon people told me I would know by the end of the week. That was two weeks ago and I finally heard back, I did not get it. O.K. no big deal I have other things on the horizon. I had my other interviews one that would pay great and have good benefits and the other just a job to have some money in my pocket. I have now waited 3 days after I was told I would know about the good job and have lost out on the other one because they needed someone ASAP. I am taking my chances with the better job and I had better get it. My brother whom I live with may be moving back to California and if he does I might have no other choice than to go back to Ridgecrest. Now that I know how much and why I hate Ridgecrest, I can't imagine going back.

Thursday, July 24, 2008


So I made it safe and sound back to Alb. I got in last night around one A.M. I got stuck in Arizona for a while due to rain and flooding. It was raining and hailing so hard I could barely see so I decided it would be a good idea to stop off at one of those little "rock" stores. I did so and tried to leave about 15 minutes later and the exit/entrance to the highway was under water. I decided not to risk it and pulled over and just sat and enjoyed the lightning. Then a Porche came down and thought "This things a boat too right?" well let me tell is not. It stalled out in the deepend and he had to climb out and walk through the muddy water. A truck eventually pulled it out and he grabbed a cup and started scooping water out of it, then he tried to start it and guess what! It didn't start. I will post pics soon. Also today I have an interview with Pepsi and as I was getting read I got a phone call. It was the casting agency I've been working with and they want me back on "Run for her life." I love it here, I can't wait for my kids to come out.

Like The Flash, I'm off.

I am on the road again. I leave in the morning to venture back to Albuquerque. I have been here a little over a week and it has seemed like a year. I've seen sun, rain, floods and even hail. You know the end of the world is here when Ridgecrest has that kind of weather in July! I had a great time with my kids, they are so cool. We played video games (my oldest kicking my ass on Rock Band) We swam (me sitting in the shade the whole time due to the lobster suit I was wearing) We went out for a few meals (thanks Mom) We even had a little party (they helped me pick out food and sodas and loved being involved). I miss them so much being so far away but I know it will eventually be worth it. I don't know when I will be back next because I have a few things lined up for me as far as work goes. One is for a law firm, one is for Pepsi, and then the cartoon. There are cons and pros to all of them and after I weigh all my options I'm sure I'll make the right decision(s).

F'ing R/C

I am now compleatly and comfortably fine with hating Ridgecrest, CA. I have lived in that shit hole for sixteen years and loved every minute of it. I loved it being small and easy to navigate, small crime rate, good military influance... ect. ect. ect. I fucking hate Ridgecrest now. Lets start with #1 Small and easy to navigate, well yea thats nice but it makes it a lot eaiser to drink and drive. #2 small crime rate, Hahahaha. Who is kidding who? the crime rate here would jump 1000% if there were any competant cops around, I mean just look at the city council and how many crimes are committed there. #3 Good military influance? The people i have meet that are actually inlisted are stupid as fuck, the only good this military base has is its enginers. Fuck R/C.
P.S. I have been here for 5 days.

Back in the U.S.S.R/C

I am now back in the good ole' R/C, but only for a short time. I went to Venice Beach yesterday and am now lobster man. I had a great time there. I went with Chiristian and a group of friends. When we got there Christian and I went straight out to the water and didnt come back on land for two and a half or three hours. It didn't seem like that long but we were having fun. We were out there boogie boarding and we caught a few waves and a few waves caught us. My left nipple ring was removed by one wave and another rolled me around and made me do a few summer saults under water. When we did get out of the water we walked down where all the shops and muscle are to have some lunch. We found a "deli" that was a little pricey but good. I ended up spending $50 on the both of us just for lunch, but she's worth it and the food was great. After lunch we went back out into the water for a few hours and walked around the shops again. We stopped to watch one of the street performers there and I was taking a lot of pictures, so he decided to grab me and put me in his little act. First thing he did was stand me face to face with him, then he took off my shirt. Christian had the camera by now and I havent seen the pictures yet but I'm sure they are great. He then made me dance "dance monkey dance" it was mostly The Robot moves and some pelvic thursts and if you know me, was fricking hilarious. The day was coming to a close so we packed up and headded back to R/C stopped in Lancaster for some food and continued on. We got home around eleven and I went straight to sleep. It was a great trip. So I am now in R/C for about one week. My Sis in Alb. has told me about a job I need to get back for so I can't extend my stay. I am still waiting to hear about the cartoon but things look promising.

Picking up the pieces.

So I have gotten in contact with my insurance company to pick up the pieces of my broken car. Everything should be fixed while I am in R/C, I just have to give them a call when I get to town so they can send out a rep to check it out. I am so incredibly upset with myself over this. I am one of the best drivers I know and I love my car, it pains me to see her all messed up (yea I know, I need a hobby right?). Today I went out to lunch with my sis again and when she saw it I said "Meteorite." I don't think she believed me. I told her the story over lunch, which took forever, we laughed, ate, and she went back to work. I came back to the house, played Gutair Hero 3, including the Dropkick Murphys songs I downloaded last night.

So I got up today and was going to cash some checks I'm still getting from the movies I just did. I have found the place I want to rent and after cashing my checks was going to look for work in that area. I get all nice looking to pick up applications, come down stairs to find my car with a flat tire. I was screwed. I mean I letarly had a screw in my flat tire. My brother helps me out with changing my tire and gives me his Sam's Club card to go and get it patched. So I'm a little upset it's going to take me longer to get my stuff done but am pleasently suprised when I get my car back and they tell me Sam's Club dosen't charge there members for patches. I get in my car a little happier having not paid for something so frustrating. I drive down Alameda heading to the 25 to get to Old Town when I feel a sharp pain in my left arm, I look down kill what ever bug had been biting me and before I look up *crunch*. I look up and find the nose of my car up the ass of the car in front of me. "Fuck!" We pull over he gets my info and I'm back on my way to Old Town to look for work in the area, only now I am in an extreamly bad mood. I get to the area I want to be in but decide instead to grab a margarita and a shrimp cocktail. Then I go back home. I have had a horrable day and can't wait for it to be over.

What a weekend!

My fourth of July weekend started off on Thursday the third. I drove down to Socorro, NM to spend some time with an old friend named Daniel. We met up at a brewery down there and had an early dinner. I had steak and a dark stout ale, he had what resembled a huge saltine cracker his words were something along the lines of “can I get pizza bread with no sauce just some olive oil and some salt, cook that bitch up.” So we finish up and go over to his place so he can get changed from work and get ready to go out. The plan was to meet up at a bar, hang out, drink and wait for his friends whom he wanted to introduce me too, or introduce them to me, or for us all to meet each other. Throughout the night people come and go and I end up meeting Jamie, Amanda, John, Marcus and a few others who I have forgotten their names. We all got the pleasure of meeting some one who we started calling “Liberty Bell” because he had on a shirt that resembled the flag of our great nation. Somehow he had leached onto our group and became very fond of me. He stood way to close, asked questions I had no idea how to answer, and tried to touch me way too much. Let me describe this man in detail, about 5’7’’, small to medium build, dark skin (either Mexican or Native American) his tooth line didn’t start until just behind where his K-9’s should have been (both top and bottom) a shirt that had stars and strips on the sleeves, and eyes that were as blank as a fart, real high class. He spent his time with everyone but kept coming back to me and as I became more and more visibly uneasy Jamie starts in with, “Hey Chad, remember when we got married that one time?” I thought to my self “I don’t know where you’re going with this but I’ll play along and I hope it helps.” So I said “yea, that was crazy huh?”
“yea that was a crazy year. I was so drunk.”
“Well Vegas can do that to you”
“Oh man, our therapist thought you were an asshole!”
“Well she called you a bitch.”
“When I was fucking her.”
As we talked she came closer and closer and got in between L.B. and I so we could have our little discussion. I had only just met her and am in a good relationship but I was very welcoming to having her as a barrier between L.B. and I. He just stood there and listened as we went deeper and deeper into “our fucked up relationship.” He asked if we had kids and I let her field that one waiting to see what I could add to it, “No, I was pregnant once but he was so sweet and pushed me down the stairs.”
“Yea, but we were on coke. That shit will fuck you up man.”
The rouse worked for a little while until we all gathered for a picture and the asshole taking it tells L.B. “Get in there man.” So where does he go? Right in between Jamie and I. He basically squeezed her out and stood right next to me. After a few hours of this crap we finally had enough and someone asked the bouncer to ask him to leave. It took a few attempts but he finally left. I then thanked Jamie for helping me out and for being so funny. We all hung out until the bar closed went home drank until the sun came up and got very little sleep for the fourth. On the fourth we meet up with Jamie, Amanda, Ian, and John ate lunch and fired off some fire works. Now New Mexico has the cool fireworks, the ones that explode and go in the air and all that cool shit. So we shot a few off and at nine o’clock we went to the golf course, laid out a blanket and had some beers as the towns show went off over our heads. It was a very good show and I got some amazing pictures. After the show was over we went back Jamie and Amanda’s house, fired off what we had left, went to the bar had some more drinks then back to the house for some beer pong and then around three Daniel and I went back to his place for some rest, he had to work in the morning. The next day we had lunch at the golf course and I waited around his house until about six. I walked down to a bar called “The Stage Door” where Jamie worked and waited for Daniel to get off work. That night we ended up back at Jamie and Amanda’s house for more booze and more good times. Needless to say but I had a wonderful time with my friend, meeting new ones and blowing shit up.

No cell service.

I am leaving Albuquerque for a few days and am visiting a friend about an hour south. I am spending the fourth of July down there and my family here seems a little upset but they will get over it. I have also decided not to take my cell phone. I really want to get away from everything just for a little bit and think it will be a fun adventure. I have absolutly no plans and no obligations.

My day.

Yesterday I went out to lunch with my sis Reasha. We had a great time, I enjoy when we get together because I havent seen her as much as my other siblings over the past 16 years. She has a great personality that goes well with mine. Anyone who likes Aressted Development as much as I do has to be awsome. We had a great lunch and before I dropped her off back at work she pointed me in the direction of a record store. I had some time to kill before my audition so I went looking. I have been trying to find a record by a local band called Flake to no avail. My brother bought it years ago as we passed through here but he some how left it in his car and it became melted. I am trying to get him a replacement and if posible one for myself as well. Like I said I couldnt find the Flake album but I was able to find and perchase 2 Cat Stevens, 1 Tom Petty and the Heart Breakers and 1 Rolling Stones, I love records. This record store also had some vintage clothing that I looked through and found a shirt that was from some sort of Halloween get together back in 1991, it has a ribcage and arm bones on it so naturally, I had to have it. I had about 2 hours left before my audition and I was about 45 minutes away from where I live so I decided to kill time by taking my records home. 45 minutes later I dropped off the records and headed back out to go audition. I ended up only a few blocks away from the record store. I was the third person there and the third to audition. I was the only person who was trying out for Osiris that I know of so my chances look good. After that was all done with I decided to find a winery and relax a little bit. I punched a feww things into my navigation system (to which I always say "computer" before using and "engage" when I'm done.) and I found a winery only five miles away. I grabbed a glass and sat down by the pond and the day just washed off. I was very relaxed and it was so beautiful. The sky was dark due to a storm that was rolling in and that added to the beauty of this incredible land. I have always loved the summer storms of New Mexico and as the winery was closing I decided I hadnt had enough yet. I headed back twards home and stopped in a little bar called Crazy Croc's Tavern. It sits on a little hill over looking Albuquerque and facing the mountians. I sat there and watched the lightning for a good three hours, then people were showing up and they ruined it. I then went home watched a movie and went to bed. It was a great day.

So I watched the first episode of Thundercats last night. It was fanfuckingtastic. I only watched one episode because my girlfriend will be coming out to visit me soon from California and I want to save all that joy and excitment to share with her. I did however watch the special feature "Feel the magic, hear the roar!" starring Wil Wheaton. Ok well maybe not starring but he is the only name they feature on the box set. Wil Wheaton is an actor, writer and blog reader. My brother has read his books and says they are well written, almost as if you are there living out the words. My brother has great taste so I believe him and will go look for these books at my local bookstore as should anyone else who is able to read. Anyway the point is, Wil was pretty funny in his parts of the interviews. I don't know if he was trying to be funny but it reminded me of myself. You get so excited talking about something so cool and you begin to get into the show and make noises that the cartoon makes. It was great. I actually have an audition today for a cartoon that has to do with ancient Egypt. I didn't want to get to Mummra's part and get that voice stuck in my head and have that come out at the audition. It's nothing like Thundercats, from what I've been told think of Laura Croft mixed with Indiana Jones. It sounds like it should be fun, I'm trying out for Osiris so lets all think happy and good thoughts for me.

I'm baaaack.

I have been making most 0f my posts on my myspace account but think I will add to this one as well. I will start by saying that I finally got paid and went out to by Thundercats season 1 volume 1. While I was shopping for it I came across The Super Mario Brothers Super Show and the entire 24 episode box set was only twenty dollars so I got it as well. I already own the Legend of Zelda cartoon that aired on Fridays. The Thudercats is one of my favorite cartoons of all time and can't wait to get the entire series, the only problem is that they are so expensive. I guess that is because the first volume has thirty three episodes and thats not even the entire first season. I guess I know what I'll be doing tonight.
