Mood: thirsty.
Ok, so my days with Blurty are over. I'm tired of the shitty interface, I'm tired of my page never loading and I'm tired of having all of my journals on someone elses server. I have opted to start a weblog instead. By doing so all content is now on my own web page, controlled by myself and not subject to anyones server outages but my own. It's also a much cleaner interface and a lot easier for everyone to use. And so, I present to you... My new weblog:

Goodbye and good riddance Blurty!

Music:Crank Yankers on TV.
Wow, so it's been a few weeks since I've updaed this thing, and to be honest with you, the only reason I am right now is to take my new "pimp ass" Apple keyboard for a test drive. I think I'm a little caught up in this whole Apple fever thing, but I don't think it's my fault. I've always hated PC's and even more, Microsoft. So when i finally got a Mac I was just happy to be rid of all of their shit. I wasn't expecting to fall in love. Seriously though, after being a PC/Windows user for my whole life, making the transition to Macintosh was like a dream come true. Everything about Macintosh is better in a million and a half ways, so much so that even the small things like their mice and keyboards are a million times superior to anything ever released for a PC. And I'm proud to say after three and a half months, my Mac STILL hasn't crashed on me. My PC has been converted to my TiVo bitch and is now exclusively used to download and play shows from our TiVo upstairs onto my TV. I wanted to shoot it with a shotgun, but I might as well give it a slow, misserable death by overclocking it and working it extra hard playing high-res 2 gigabyte TiVo files until it finally shits out and dies.

Good riddance...

Subject:Hawaii Part 3
Time:10:40 pm.
Mood: excited.
Music:The sound of the palm trees blowing in the soft wind.
Well today has been an intersting day. It started out as usual with us getting up at about 1:30 AM to go broadcast the morning show. Afterwards we decided to come back and plan out the rest of our stay in Maui. We went down to the hotel lobby and talked with some Expedia "Activity Planner" and ended up booking a snorkeling tour out to Molokini (the place that is supposed to have insane snorkeling)... On a side note, we're sitting outside our room working on our laptops right now and a stray cat just went into our room. Anyway, we booked a tour that sounded pretty cool. Monday morning we go from Maui to Molokini which is basically the tip of a volcano poking out of the water that has a giant coral reef on it. We eat breakfast on the way out and then snorkel at Molokini for an hour. After that we get back on the boat and head towards a little tropical island about a half hour away. On the way there we are going to stop and whale watch (more about that in a minute) the humpback whales that are visiting Maui right now. Then we continue on to the island where we get to snorkel with wild dolphins and sea turtles for an hour. After that, we get back on the boat and have lunch on the way back. We're pretty excited.

Now kitty is sitting right next to me pressing up against my leg as I type.

Anyway, we have the night off so we're planning on going out for a bit tonight and maybe going to a club or something. Tomorrow morning we are going to get up early and do the legendary (well legendary in Maui) road to Hanna. The road to Hanna takes about 10 hours total and is supposed to me some of the most amazing scenery on earth. You drive a small 1 lane road past 300 foot cliffs, 250 foot waterfalls and some of the richest rain forest on Hawaii. You also get to go to black sand beaches, 7 pools which is some insane natural hotspring and a bunch of other stuff. Our "activity agent" gave us a CD that you play as you do the drive that tells you what your looking at and where to stop. Almost all the stuff I read on the web before we came out here said that you have to do this trip, so we will. Tomorrow.

As for today everything started out fine. I got some insider info from the guy working overnight at our hotel and he told us about a secret locals only beach, we went down there earlier today and it was amazing. Huge cliffs and rocks on both sides with a white sand beach inbetween. We got some amazing pictures and I will post them on the web as soon as I get done writing this. The only problem was that there were really sharp lava rocks in the water so it made it hard to swim, etc. We hung out there for a couple hours and then went to one of the coolest places I have ever been, Kanapalli beach. Now we went to Kanapalli beach yesterday but we didn't go to this place, this time we went to black rock, a giant natural pier that sticks out into the ocean with hotels both on and all around it. We snorkeled around black rock which was awesome, burried me so far in the sand that I almost couldn't breath because my lungs were so compressed and made a new friend Sampson the sand crab. I got some good video of Sampson but then he decided to fall out of my hand onto a car hood and run under the hood. Hopefully Sampson ends up in some crab party barge instead of inside the air intake of the crappy rental car.

Now although all this sounds fun, we screwed up something big time. About 1/2 hour ago we realized that while we were having all this fun, we were supposed to be helping run our listener party. All the winners from the radio station that won trips all gathered at this nice restaraunt for dinner. We were supposed to get audio clips, decorate the restraunt, and take video of the entire event. It was one of the reasons we were invited on this trip. Well, we forgot. All seems well and no one seems very upset about the whole thing but we're pretty upset at ourselves for missing it. Other than that Maui is absolutely amazing and I never want to leave. Mckell, we have to come here! Pretty much all the hard work but one more broadcast is done, so now, on with the playing!

Subject:Hawaii Part 2
Time:7:07 am.
Mood: tired.
Music:Kerry, Bill and Gena doing their show in front of me.
Right now I am sitting in the "library" of the Aston Kaunappauli Villas 4:08 AM Hawaii time. For the past two days I've had to get up at 1:30 AM Hawaii time, grab our 2 laptops, big box 1 which has our Tie-Line and mic stands in it and big box 2 which has the rest of the crap we need to broadcast such as microphones, headphones, speakers, etc. lug it all out to the car and drive it over to the Villas here which is about a 7 minute drive from our hotel. It takes about 20 minutes to set up everything including our webcam and then we just hang out as Kerry, Bill and Gena do their show. We're almost half way through today and then we only have to do this one more time on Monday morning. It's really not that bad though, we go to sleep about 11 or Midnight, sleep a couple hours, get up and do the show, then get back to our hotel by about 7:30 and sleep until 11 or noon. It almost feels like we never sleep since we're up late, stay up all night, then still get a full day in. Well worth the free trip to Hawaii.

As for the plans for today we are going to try to get on a catermaran to a place called Moulokai and go snorkeling. According to what I have been reading on the internet Moulokai is rated one of the best places in the world to go snorkeling. Apparently there are not only fish, but dolphins, sea turtles and giant crabs. Hopefully we can get on a tour that leaves around noon or later and serves a lunch or dinner while you snorkel. I've been talking a lot with the guy that runs the front desk overnight at the hotel and he's given us a bunch of tips on secret beaches, good places to snorkel free and other stuff to do that most people don't know about. One thing he did do is scare me. I've never been afraid of sharks but when we were talking about good places to snorkel off the beach he made some comment like "of course you want to make sure to keep an eye out for sharks" to which I asked if that was really a problem or not. He said that it's not uncommon for people to see sharks when their snorkeling in some of the less touristy areas. Apparently the sharks tend to stay away to the really populated areas such as Moulakai but are pretty common in the less populated areas. He also said one of his best friends was just killed about 9 months ago when he got his leg ripped off and bled to death while surfing. Anyway, now I'm a little more hesitant about just going out wherever like I was planning to do, either way it's not common for people to get attacked, so oh well.

Ok, well I'll write a little more later when I'm not about to fall asleep behind the keyboard.

Aloha <-- Sorry you just have to do it when your in Hawaii!

Mood: peaceful.
Music:Bob Marley: Is This Love.
Aloha from Maui, Hawaii! Today begins our first full day in Maui. Getting here was fairly uneventful. Mckell picked Steve and I up about 5:45 AM and took us to the airport. Everything you read on the internet says to give yourself at least 2 hours to go check your bags, go through security, etc. but it only took us about 40 minutes to do everything leaving us waiting to board our plane for a little over an hour. We then flew into LAX getting there with about an hour to get to our connecting flight to Maui. Things got a little interesting here. First off, that airport is fucking huge. It took us what seemed like an hour just to taxi from the runway the terminal. Anyway, we get there and no one at Delta can seem to tell us where our next flight was leaving from. Finally she thought she figured it out and told us we needed to go across the entire airport to another terminal. Since she didn't seem to know what she was talking about we decided to try to figure it out on our own, which didn't work. In the process though, these two really strange guys walked up to us in our terminal and sounding almost retarted asked us where we're going and tried to make small talk with us, we basically ignored them and went on our way. About 40 minutes until our other flight was going to leave we found out that our flight was one of two terminals, the problem being, each terminal has it's own security so if we went to the wrong one, there would be no way we could make it to the other terminal in time to catch our plane. As we left our terminal, once again the weird guy was standing there and asked us where we were going. We thought it was a little weird, but it get's weirder. Luckily we ran into a nice colored man who was driving a rental car shuttle and knew exactly where we needed to go to catch our flight. Not only did he know, but he told us he would get us there as fast as he could instead of making us take the airport shuttle which took a long time to get all the way across the airport. We gave him a few bucks for the help and found the ticket counter for our connecting flight. They gave us our tickets, and sent us on our way. As we stood in the security line, which was really long and looked as if it was going to take at least 40 minutes or so I looked down at our tickets and realized they had started boarding the plane 10 minutes ago and it was scheduled to take off in 10 minutes. We panicked and tried to run past everyone but some lady saw us and told us we had to go to the back. Instead of going to the back we asked a few guys going to Denver if we could get in line with them and go through security. They let us but the bitchy lady that told us to go to the back almost didn't. Luckily they did and we went through security. Here's where things get weird. As we're leaving the same guy that we had seen 2 times already and who was acting really weird was standing right behind the security exit letting everyone pass. Right when we get to him, he once again was like "Hey man, where are you guys going?". Now there is NO way someone could have gone from our first terminal to that terminal and beat us through security, we raced there, cut in line and this guy was still waiting for us at the end. The only thing we can think is that they were suspicious of the tie-line (the thing we use to broadcast back to SLC) that I was carrying on and thought it could be a bomb or something. We assume this guy was some kind of under cover security of police and was trying to burn us or just let us know in a discreet way. Anyway, we got luck and our plane was running really late so we made the flight, but ended up getting into Maui almost an hour and a half late because the plane was running so late.

We finally got into Maui about 3 PM local time and after getting our bags, our rental car, etc. finally got out of the airport about 4:15. All I can say is Hawaii is amazing. It reminds me a lot of Cancun, Mexico, just a lot more tropical feeling. Instead of desert and sand, all you see here is green, everything is green. Basically all we have done since we got in is work as of now. Yesterday we had to test our equiptment and make sure everything had been set up right. Then we ate and came back to our hotel to nap before our broadcast at 2 AM Hawaii time. We did the broadcast, got back to our hotel and took another nap. I woke up from that about 1/2 hour ago and now we're just about to leave to go down to Lahaina (where all the restraunts, bars, etc. are around here) and check things out. I've been taking pictures all morning and will post them to my site tonight. Until then, mahallo...

Ok, so in 11 hours I leave for Maui, Hawaii. This will be my last journal entry for the next week from Utah. I am going to have an online photo album where I am going to store all of the pictures from my Hawaii trip as I take them. These photos will be located on my web site. As for now I have to get to packing and getting everything in order for tomorrow morning. I'll see you in Hawaii.

Music:Outkast: Hey Ya.
So for some reason I feel like telling all of you how I feel about you. I'm going to start with the most important person in my life right now, Mckell.

Mckell - Your amazing and I love you more than anything. We've been through a lot, but it was more than worth it. You are one of the most amazing people I have ever known and you inspire everyone you meet. Whatever you do never forget how incredible you really are, and know that I really do love you more than anything. You've changed me for the better more than you could ever know.

Joey - My man! Brother, you've been there longer than anyone else, plus your family. Blood sticks together through thick and thin and some of my most memorable moments in my childhood happened with you. I only wish you could realize how unique and special you really are. You always will be one of my best friends and I miss you a lot since you've moved to Oklahoma. You had a bigger influence on me than you think, ever remember a band you introduced me to named Nirvana? Or a song called About a Girl?

Dustin - You crazy bastard, we've had some fun. We've always been close but not so close that is causes drama. We are eachothers escape. We can bitch to one another, talk shit and gossip about anything that's going on at the time. Your always down to do whatever and we can actually have fun doing a whole lot of nothing. You've been there a lot and I've put you through a lot of shit. All of which you've taken in stride and forgave me the next day for. You are what a friend should be, fun, supportive and there for me. I appreciate it a lot, your a good man!

Nate - Brotha, if anyone is going to end up in Nicaragua digging up ancient coblasouras fossils and smoking rare Northantian tabacco it's you. Your smarter than all of us and more willing to take risks than most of us, but you've also got some of your dad in you, which isn't a bad thing at all. Your also a fighter, you've been through more shit than most of us and come out every time fighting. I respect that a lot. You will overcome all of this bullshit and move on to something great. I look forward to you living in some foreign country ordering lessers to do your mining for you. Hopefully I can come visit for cheap. Just keep that Man O' War disc handy. On a side note, I'll never forget the Nate Mobile or the good times it provided, it taught me more about life than school ever did.

Jon P - Why did you ever get into drugs? Who knows where both of us could be if they were never part of your life.

Mike Crane - You kick ass. I've always liked you even though you've always been different. That's probably why I liked you so much, you've always been different from the "average" crowd and I've never been one for the "average" crowd. Your unique and a good guy, you'll get yours in the end. You've earned it, but you may want to slow down on the Final Fantasy!

Wyatt - I hear your dating my ex-girlfriend. Enjoy! You've always been a good friend. Your probably the only person I that I truely can't predict the future for. I have no clue what you'll end up doing. You've always been so unique I think it will be interesting to see where you end up. Either way, good luck!

Kearns (A.K.A. Eric) - Why the fuck did you join the Army? That came out of nowhere. Plus you stopped calling me out of nowhere. I hear your getting married? Good luck man, I know how it feels to be in love and if you truely are, everything will work out. And god damn, call me sometime!

Sarah Longaker - I hear your dating Wyatt. Well isn't that the bees knees. We dated for a LONG time, but remember, we were young and stupid. Don't hold that against me.

Mike Jones - Holy shit, where do I start? Helium Bomb, legendary. Mikes drunkeness, legendary. Isn't it crazy how we became friends? I still can't remember how it happened.

Kasey - Best of luck on the family you son of a bitch. I always thought I would be the first out of my friends to get married and you beat me to the punch. You have a beutiful daughter and an amazing wife. Your a lucky man. We do need to hang out more though, things were a lot easier before you were married.

Dick Casper - I've never liked you much, you've always been an asshole and still are. Keep that attitude up and we'll see where you end up.

Doose - Truely the most original of the bunch. How in the hell could anyone not like you? Your one of the nicest people I've ever met. Your the opposite of the Dick above you :) Keep that up and we'll see where you end up. Your a badass and your gonna be someone it payed off to meet when I was young cuz you'll probably be all crazy rich when your older :).

Nick - Nick, Nick, Nick, where to start? Nick, you became one of my best friends faster than almost anyone else. You really are one of the nicest people I have ever met. You truely care about your friends and we all know that. Aside from being such a nice guy, you risk your ass ever day so people like myself can sit here and type in their gay online journals whenever they want and I repsect you for that. Anyone that will put their ass on the line for the good of others is a better person than myself. Your awesome and as I've heard you say so many times "I love you man!". Be safe out there homie!

Jessica - What could have been. I really hope your happy girl. You helped me through a lot and I appreciate it more than you know. Not only that but we had some damn good times. That's one of the things I loved about you, we could just have fun and not give a shit what anyone thought. Remember Felicia?

Jody - Jody, damnit... I don't even know where to start on this one. Of course, that's our relationship isn't it? Giving eachother shit and making fun of one another? Your awesome though! And I have always considered you one of my good friends. We do have a weird relationship though. We can go months without talking to one another, then see eachother all the time for a year. I don't know. What I do know is that your awesome and for christ sake, find that hot ass spiderman guy once and for all and just marry him. No one will get that but you and I by the way.

Rachelle - Did I spell your name right? Because I remember that was a big problem when I worked at Target. "Jason, you never spell my name right!" I heard that a lot. You know what else I heard? Chris Merill giving me shit after I told you the "What do you tell a bitch with two black eyes" joke. Thanks a lot for that one. I'd never been accused of sexual harassment before. Other than that your pretty cool. You do have the labido of a man though, and your views on the opposite sex, total guy! Which reminds me, are you sure your not a guy? j/k

Lauren - Uhhhh....

Micha - Your a weid ass guy, but a good one. Maybe we'll finally go to the bar sometime.

Russ - When I first met you, you were so nice I thought you were a pedophile or something, turns out you wern't. Good thing too. Good luck with everything, your an awesome guy and I respect that. I'm sorry about what happened recently, you deserve better.

Ok, well that's all she wrote kids. I'm really tired and it's time for bed. After all, I leave for Hawaii in but a day!

My review of Blade III: Trinity:

----- 0 stars! Why? Because there was no kick ass scene where Blade looses his sunglasses and can't fight worth shit until he either busts some ass to get them back (i.e. Blade) or get's them thrown to him by Whistler only for some kick ass "oh shit" music to come in promptly followed by Blade actually kicking ass (i.e. Blade II). Anyway, yeah it was a good movie but still doesn't deserve shit due to the lack of the kick ass sunglasses scene which I looked forward too so much and was oh so disapointed to not see...

R.I.P. Sassy February 5, 2005

Our dog "Sassy" (I didn't name her, my sisters did when they were about 8 years old) had to be put to sleep today. Her health was declining because of old age and within the past year she had not only gone deaf, but started to go blind as well. She also developed arthritis which had started to get progressively worse recently. Well, this morning while I was at work she was whimpering and having a hard time walking. My dad picked her up to take her outside to go to the bathroom and she couldn't stand up very well and kept falling on her side. In quick memory of Sassy, I'll give a brief history of how she came to be...

We got Sassy about 10 years ago from a pet adoption at Petsmart. She was on her last day and if no one adopted her that day, she was going to be put to sleep. Our last dog (Snooze) had died a few years earlier and my sisters had been wanting to get a dog for awhile. Eventually my sisters talked my parents into adopting her, the adoption lady cried as they took her because she said she was one of the sweetest dog's she's ever taken care of. We got Sassy home and it was immediately apparent that she had been pretty seriously abused by her previous owners. She was so afraid of me and my dad that she tried to run away sliding all around on our hardwood floors until she finally gave up and just stood there with her head between her legs, shaking. Eventually though she warmed up too us and within a month or so, it was as if nothing had ever happened too her.

Sassy was one of the sweetest dogs ever, but there was one person she truly despised, and that was the mailman. Once she jumped out of our giant picture window as the mailman came onto our porch to deliver the mail. A giant shard of glass cut the mailmans wrist and severed a couple of his tendons that control hand and finger movement. At first he was cool about it and my parents offered to pay all of his medical bills and expenses but then he got a lawyer and found out how much money he could make suing us. He filed a huge lawsuit and I don't really remember what happened after that. I know the home-owners insurance took care of everything. Whether he won the case and they had to pay him a huge sum of money or whether he lost, I don't know. What I do know though is that we had to permanently re-locate our mailbox to below the porch in case Sassy ever decided to jump out the window at our new mailman again.

Anyway, Sassy was one of the sweetest dog's I've ever met. I hope she's happy in little doggy heaven...

Mood: sick.
So I've been sick for about 4 days now. I really hate being sick, there's almost nothing I hate worse. I've had some kind of head cold with a sore throat, stuffy nose and minor fever. The worst part is that I have been weak, really weak, not to mention tired. Tired and weak is a bad combination, work really sucks when your weak and all you want to do is go to sleep. Then your days feel like a waist because you sit around all day doing nothing but watching TV and sleeping. I think I may be coming out of it, but there's no guarantee yet.

I don't feel like typing much right now, and I can't think of anything to do but watch TV or go play Final Fantasy (I haven't played for about a month now) so I'll probably go do one or another.

Blah...

Subject:Turbo Tax Sucks
Time:4:14 pm.
Mood: pissed off.
Ok, so just a quick bitch here... I got my W-2's in today and decided I would try to file my taxes online this year instead of over the phone as I usually do. I saw a thing on the news about how you can file free online via the IRS.gov web site so I figured I'd give it a try. I ended up using Turbo Tax which said it was completely free for people under 25, I even filled out a little survey to make sure it was free for me. So I spend about 20 minutes filling everything out and putting in all my information, I go through entering my bank info and other info so I could have my refund deposited directly into my account when I get the question "How would you like to pay your $19.99 preporation fee to Turbo Tax?" and then it asks me whether I want it automatically deducted from my refund (which costs and additional $20) or whether I want to pay by credit card. What the fuck happened to FREE???? Seriously, there were three options on how to pay: By Credit Card, By Automatic Deduction, or Back. Anyway, I'm pissed! I know my way around this kind of shit and I am confident I didn't make any mistakes. Someone should sue these bastards!

DON'T USE TURBO TAX ONLINE!!!

I'M GOING TO HAWAII!!!!!!

Woo Hoo!

So I found out yesterday that I get to go to Hawaii on a company trip, all expenses paid! Gina (one of the hosts of our morning show) is getting married in Hawaii in 3 weeks and the entire morning show will be going to Hawaii, well Maui to be exact, for the wedding. They decided it would be fun to tie the station into her wedding and include both fly-aways that would be given away on air to listeners, and live broadcasts from Hawaii. Since they will be broadcasting and hosting a party for the winners of the fly-aways they needed someone that can set-up the equipment and manage the winner party. Apparently they wanted that someone to be me. They ran everything by corporate and told them they wanted me to go. I've known about this for about a week now, but just got the call from the big guys that I was going to go! I still don't have many details on exactly when we are going, or in what hotel we are staying, but I do know that I am staying in the same hotel everyone else is and I have heard that it is a 5 star hotel directly on the beach. The company is paying in full for airfare, hotel and I would assume expenses while I am down there, not to mention I get paid my regular pay for working. So, all in all I am actually getting paid to go to Maui. The best part is that we will be down there for what I assume is 2 weekdays and 2 weekend days so that means I will really only be working a few hours the first few days we are down there, and the rest of the trip will be open for me to do whatever I want. Anyway, if you can't tell, I'm pretty excited about this.

In other news things are going great with Mckell. We are completely in love with one another and we both feel great. I am however starting to get scared by my love for her. I fall more and more in love with her every day that goes by and I'm starting to worry about our future. My current plans involve me leaving in about a year for flight school in New Mexico. Her current plans are to be going to school here for awhile, but I'm not so sure I could be away from her for 2 years at the rate things are going right now. I know it's early in the relationship to worry about these kinds of things, but I know from previous experiences that when I love someone as much as I love Mckell, the relationship is probably going to be lasting a long time. I talked to her about this last night and she made me feel really good about things basically telling me whatever we need to do to be together, we will do. I like hearing that she is that serious about the relationship too. Sometimes I worry that I am much more in love with her than she is with me, but I know that is not the case. I just love the feeling of being in love with someone and having them love you back. It's one of the most amazing feelings one can experience. I truly love this girl and I really hope things work out between us. She would make an absolutely amazing wife.

Did I just say that?

Subject:Sundance
Time:9:32 am.
Mood:calm.
So here I sit in Park City in the middle of the Sundance/Slamdance film festival. My alarm went off at 4:05 AM this morning and I've been in Park City ever since. Our morning show is broadcasting live from the Slamdance festival and I've just been sitting here chilling, surfing the net on my laptop and basically doing nothing. I hate getting up at 4 AM because it basically ruins my day, I never seem to fully wake up and I feel tired and groggy all day. I also hate trying to get to bed the night before. Luckily last night Mckell basically talked me to sleep and I actually got a few hours of sleep, which is rare for me when I do these things. It's strange how different TV makes these events seem. I always see stuff on Sundance on E! or Entertainment Tonight and you'd think it was a giant non-stop Hollywood party up here, but when you get up here and experience it for yourself, all you seem to notice is huge crowds, shitty cell phone service, tons of traffic and a million places you can't get into because their invite only. Apparently Paris Hilton and Nichole Richie are here, but you'd never know being up here. Things seem busy, but generally quiet and there's definately not stars everywhere you look.

Subject:Sundance Sucks
Time:4:13 pm.
Mood: confused.
So I'm currently sitting off Main Street in Park City on one of the busiest weekends this town ever sees, the opening weekend of the Sundance Film Festival, and it is unbelieveable. I have to set up some equiptment for a live broadcast we are doing this Monday morning at a little hotel called the Treasure Mountain Inn... Oh shit, hang on, parking!

Woo hoo! I just got a spot! I'm probably still illigally parked but there is no other options. This town is crazy right now. I've been trying to call our contact up here for the past 10 minutes, but ever time you try to dial out on the cell phone, it just gives you a "system busy" message, meaning there must be a million people on their cell phones up here right now. It also took about an hour just to get here, every road is jam packed with cars moving at about 4 MPH, taking their time and enjoying the sites. Luckily behind the hotel here I found a wireless access point so I figured while I was waiting for our contact to call me back, I would type a quick little something.

Either way, she's not calling so I guess I have to go search for her now. Park City is crazy right now...

Subject:Tonight is Jason's Night
Time:12:15 am.
Mood: depressed.
Music:Ben Folds: Not The Same.
Tonight needs to be a Jason night. I've got the perfect set up; Heineken, Ben Folds live CD, plenty of good stuff on the TiVo and myself, and just myself. I've had a shitty past few days and I don't really know why. I'm starting to think that I just enjoy wallowing in my own self pity sometimes, because I tend to do it quite often. Such as tonight.

I have come to the realization that I have developed some pretty serious jealousy problems. I have turned into something I have never really been in the past, a jealous, controlling, and temper tantrum throwing boyfriend. I know how wonderful my girlfriend is, that I don't doubt, but for some reason, occasionally I find myself sabotaging my relationship. I take something that really isn't a big deal, like her talking to one of her guy friends on the phone, and blow it WAY out of proportion. I start thinking all kinds of crazy thoughts in my head, mainly that someone I don't like is getting attention from my girlfriend. Now I have my reasons for not liking a few of her guy friends. The two guy's she's closest with have admitted time and time again that they "love" her and each has their own current set of problems. One of them is on a mission, but still sends her letters with things like "I want to hold you in my arms forever" and "I could spend the rest of my life staring into your eyes" on a regular basis. I have freaked out about this in the past and she assures me they never went out, and she never has, nor never will have any desire too. I guess she can just see past the blatant come-on lines and still find a friendship in there, something I don't really understand, but I guess to each is own. Her other friend went behind her back and told her parents my real age (we had originally lied since I'm a little older than her and we didn't know how her parents would react to that) in what I consider to be a malicious manner. He has always liked her and told her over the phone before he told her parents that he "didn't approve of her dating someone my age". I get pissed off because who the fuck does this guy think he is saying he doesn't approve? I don't fucking care what you think asshole, so fuck off. Not to mention this is one of her ex-boyfriends.

So my question is this... Am I in the wrong getting upset that she keeps in contact with these guys? She is definitely a "healer" and is one to give people a million chances, no matter how bad they screw up. Myself on the other hand, I am a fairly straight forward person, if you fuck me, you're done. That is unless you apologize in a way I feel is appropriate and make it up too me. I don't just automatically give people second chances. So I don't see how she can be such good friends with two guys that are basically doing everything in their power to take my spot. All of this, plus things that have happened in the past have all come together to give me my complex. I don't know what to do about it. 90% of the time our relationship is amazing, but there's the 10% that is nothing but self-inflicted pain and self loathing. How do I fix this? I've tried just ignoring it and trying to let it pass me by, but it just builds up to a boiling point. I don't understand it, this is unlike anything I have ever experienced in a relationship before...

So in light of this... Tonight will be a Jason night, just me, myself, and I.

Subject:Liquid Joes
Time:11:15 pm.
Mood: bored.
Hot damn I love my laptop! I’m sitting outside Liquid Joes right now (a neghborhood bar) “working”. Tonight is a battle of the bands event where the winner get’s to go to Austin, Texas and compete in the South by South-West competition. Basically all I am supposed to do is have the truck here, so for the past few hours I’ve been watching my Aqua Teen DVD and munching on some pretzels and Gatoraid I picked up at the gas station down the street. Good times...

Not much new has been going down, my girlfriend got back from Cali and things have been great ever since. It’s amazing how much I missed her, she is no longer allowed to leave for any extended period of time without me. Today was our “return day” we were going to take a bunch of Christmas stuff back, etc. First we went to American Eagle where I took back a shirt my little sister got me because it was too big, and exchanged it for some jeans. Then we went to Nordstroms where she took back some really expensive MAC makeup she bought in Cali. After that we were going to go to CompUSA and exchange the iPod mini I got her because the battery isn’t lasting very long, but she forgot the charger and iTunes CD, so we decided to do that Friday. Pretty uneventful all in all. We also recently decided to get a shared cell phone plan together. Her parent’s have been paying for her cell phone and no longer want too so she was just going to go get her own phone. We got to thinking though and realized that we talk to eachother more than anyone else, and she didn’t use all that many minutes as it is so a

Ok, so about now I’m realizing that I sound like a dumbass and this must be really uninteresting to read. So, instead of deleting it like I usually do (I almost did it a second ago), I’m just going to start over, and see what happens... Who knows, maybe I’m just in a boring mood.

So I got a new gym membership about a week ago. I decided to sign up with 24 Hour Fitness for a few reasons: 1. The Sugarhouse location is pretty close to my house and only takes me a few minutes to get too, it’s also closer than any other gym. 2. They just finished building a new facility in the same building I work in, so that will be convenient if I ever want to work out after or before work. 3. Mckell’s sister has a membership to 24 Hour that she can use, they also have a gym right next to their house so I can work out with Mckell whenever I want. It is pretty expensive at $34.99 a month, but I figure as long as I use it, it’s worth it. The other benifiti is that 24 Hour doesn’t have contracts, so I can cancel any time I want if my ass decides I’m too good for the gym. I plan on going after I leave here today, and as long as I do, that will make it 3 days straight I have gone to the gym. When I had my free 1 month pass a few months ago, something clicked in me. I realized that I really enjoy going to the gym, it’s something I actually look forward to. My goal is to get in really good shape by Spring... Wish me luck.

Also, Mckell and I decided to add her to my cell phone plan. We figured it was cheaper than her having to buy a new phone, and I have plenty of minutes so why the hell not? Plus it’s only $9.99 a month extra on my bill (which Mckell plans to pay for) so it’s not too bad. This on top of the fact that I don’t have a contract and could have that phone taken off my account at any time without penalty is good too. We’ll have free mobile to mobile, and since I talk to her more than anyone else by quite a bit, it shouldn’t be a problem staying within our 1100 anytime minutes.

Let’s see, anything else new? Guess not...

Time:6:48 pm.
They made up their minds, and they started packing. They left before the sun came up that day. An exit to eternal summer slacking, but where were they going without ever knowing the way?

They drank up the wine, and they got to talking. They now had more important things to say. And when the car broke down they started walking. Where were they going without ever knowing the way?

Anyone can see the road that they walk on is paved in gold, and it's always summer they'll never get cold. They never get hungry, they never get old and grey. You can see their shadows wandering off somewhere, they won't make it home but they really don't care. They wanted the highway, their happy there today.

The children woke up and they couldn't find them. They left before the sun came up that day. They just drove off and left it all behind them, but where were they going without ever knowing the way?

Anyone can see the road that they walk on is paved in gold, and it's always summer they'll never get cold. They never get hungry, they never get old and grey. You can see their shadows wandering off somewhere, they won't make it home but they really don't care. They wanted the highway, their happy there today.
