Well... I did it. I told the girl whom I have feelings for all that I was feeling. I told her that even though her ex maybe coming back in the picture, just remember that there is someone else who feels something for her... probably even stronger. And that, no matter what, we'll always be friends, and nothing will change that. Ever.

So, now, the ball is in your court, Universe. I took a chance with my feelings and let it be known. Will you take this opportunity away from me? Will you steal this one, like all the others? Or will you finally allow me to have some light, to allow me to have this one, after all the others you've pushed away, after the last time I've ever felt this way about someone.

Please... let me have this one...

Never thought that we would ever be more than friends

And I'm wondering if it's worth me holding on (holding on)

Okay, okay. It's been awhile since I updated on here, and so, given the probable lack of time, I'll give a quick update.

Brother and family stayed in my closet(the basement) for a month, until sister-in-law had second child. My uncle had me tell him that he couldn't bring the baby down there. For my efforts, I get my ass kicked. Cuts and scars for life, WHOO-HOO!

Had an interview with a security company. Got the "We'll call you" response.

Rotating(or trying to) hanging out between Juan and the fellas, Best friend #1 Francisco, and Best friend #2 Kat. It is far from easy. I can do it, though.

I figured out what drains my energy: My house. I hate it there. I need a job, to move out, damnit...

Oh yes. I'm tired as hell. Went out last night for a friend's birthday. We took her to the coolest spot in Greenwich Village: Cafe Wha?.

Microsoft has announced that one of their top-selling video game series, "Halo" will be coming to theaters. Click here for the entire story.

However... this is how I would cast the movie:

Master Chief : Viggo Mortenson (because you need someone who fits the action hero mold)
Arbiter(voice) : Keith David (you don't fix what isn't broke)
Sergeant Johnson : Samuel L. Jackson(watch the movie "Basic", and you'll see why)
Captain Keyes : Hugo Weaving (look for Hugo Weaving's pic and Capt. Keyes pic. they look alike)
Cortana : Victoria Beckham(the british voice is just so sweet)
Miranda Keyes : Michelle Rodriguez(she's a great actress)

I only have those six thought up right now. Don't know if I'll try anyone else...

Most f***ed up song I've ever heard...

mood: relaxed
music: Trapped In the Closet -- R. Kelly

Seven o’clock in the morning
And the rays from the sun wakes me
I’m stretchin’ and yawnin’
In a bed that don’t belong to me
And a voice yells, “Good morning, darlin”, from the bathroom
Then she comes out and kisses me
And to my surprise, she ain’t you

Now I’ve got this dum look on my face
Like, what have I done?
How could I be so stupid to be have laid here til the morning sun?
Lost the track of time
Oh, what was on my mind?
From the club, went to her home
Didn’t plan to stay that long

Here I am, quickly tryin’ to put on my clothes
Searching for my car keys
Tryin’ to get on up out the door
Then she streched her hands in front of it
Said, “You can’t go this way”
Looked at her, like she was crazy
Said, “Woman move out my way”
Said, “I got a wife at home”
She said, “Please don’t go out there”
“Lady, I’ve got to get home”
She said, her husband was comin’ up the stairs

“Shh, shh, quiet
Hurry up and get in the closet”
She said, “Don’t you make a sound
Or some shit is going down”
I said, “Why don’t I just go out the window?”
“Yes, except for one thing, we on the 5th floor”
“Shit think, shit think, shit quick, put me in the closet”
And now I’m in this darkest closet, tryin’ to figure out
Just how I’m gonna get my crazy ass up out this house

Then he walks in and yells, “I’m home”
She says, “Honey, I’m in the room”
Walks in there with a smile on his face
Sayin’, “Honey, I’ve been missin’ you”
She hops all over him
And says, “I’ve cooked and ran your bath water”
I’m tellin’ you now, this girl’s so good that she deserves an Oscar

Rolls her in the bed
And start to snatchin’ her clothes off
I’m in the closet, like man, what the fuck is going on?
You’re not gonna believe it
But things get deeper as the story goes on
Next thing you know, a call comes through on my cell phone
I tried my best to quickly put it on vibrate
But from the way he act, I could tell it was too late
He hopped up and said, “There’s a mystery going on
And I’m gonna solve it”
And I’m like, “God please, don’t let this man open this closet”

He walks in the bathroom
And looks behind the door
She says, “Baby, come back to bed”
He says, “Bitch say no more”
He pulls back the shower curtain
While she’s biting her nails
Then he walks back to the room
Right now, I’m sweating like hell
Checks under the bed
Then under the dresser
He looks at the closet
I pull out my Baretta
He walks up to the closet
He comes up to the closet
Now he’s at the closet
Damn he’s opening the closet…


Now he’s staring at me like
As if he was starin in a mirror
She yells honey let me explain
He says you don’t have to go no further
I can clearly see what’s goin on
Behind my back, in my bed, in my home
Then I said wait a minute now hold on
I said mister we can work this out
She said honey don’t lose control
Tried to get him to calm down
He said ho I should’ve known
That you would go and do some bogus shit up in my house
But the Christian in me gave you the benefit of the doubt
I said we need to resolve this
Then he stepped to me, I’m like whoa
There’s a reason I’m in this closet
He says, yeah like what, are you talkin clothes
I met this girl at the Plagis club
And she told me she didn’t have a man
Then he said man please,
I’d kill you if you didn’t have that gun in ya hand
And I said but yo chick chose me
He said don’t give me that mack shit please
His phone goes off and then things get a little more interesting
He steps a little closer
I point my gun and says I’m not the one you after
He says son I bet you didn’t know my man
Did she tell you that I was a pastor
I said well good that’s betta right
Why can’t we handle this Christian- like
And I started to put the gun down
Til I saw his face still had that frown
She started cryin, sayin baby I’m sorry
Then he said baby not as sorry as you’re gonna be
I started inchin out
He says no I want you to see this
Said I gotta get out this house
He said not til I reveal my secret
I’m like what is goin on inside his head
Then he takes his phone and calls somebody up and says
Hello, Baby, turn the car around
Listen I just need for you to get right back here now (Click)
He looks at me and says well since we’re all comin out the closet
I’m not about to be the only one that’s broken hearted
She said what do you mean
And he said just wait and see
I said somebody betta talk to me
And then his phone rings
He picks up and somebody says sweetheart I’m downstairs
And he’s like I’ll buzz you up
I’m on the fifth floor, hurry take the stairs
And I’m like who is this mystery lady that you’re talking to
He says in time you both will know the shockin truth
Baby this is something I been wanting to get off my chest for a long, long time
Then I said nigga Imma shoot you both if you don’t say what’s on ya mind
He said wait I hear somebody comin up the stairs
And I’m lookin at the door
He says I think you betta sit down in the chair
I says I’m gonna count to four
1, he says mister wait
2, she says please don’t shoot
3, he says don’t shoot me
4, she screams
Then a knock at the door, the guns in my hands
He opens the door, I'd be god damned it’s a man


Well,here we are the four of us,
in total shock me and her,
I close my mouth,and swollow spit,
as I'm thinking to myself this is some deep shit,
then I said so your gonna tell me he's the one
you've been talking to,
he says yes, I says no, he says yes, I says no,
he says it's the truth,
I yell "all of ya'll asses crazy,
let me up out this door", cause this is way
more than I bargoned for,
and then she says wait,
I'm sure we can all fix this, then I said i'm late,
Cuz I ain't got a damn thing to do with this.....

Then she said wouldn't you like to know
just how it all begin,
then I thought to myself and said quick you got 3 minutes,
then it got real quite,
I said somebody start talkin,then she said
And then she said "My God Ruphus, I got just one question,
he looked at her and said bitch please you got

lying sayin' you was shoppin',
and now here you are in
our home, and you calling

and that much I agree,

and now I come home and you got him in the closet,

She says but she's a he,
then he says please you can't judge me,
she says Ruphus this is crazy,
and I said stop aguing,
I did not stay here to hear yall chew
each other out, so get to the point,
or I swear I'm out, excuse me please,
but I think I can explain what's going in
here, my name is Chuck, and I've been
knowin' Ruphus for bout a year,
at midnight creeping around with him it's been a living hell,
sneaking in and out of hotels,
I said brother spare me

you son of a bitch,
and he says Cathy go to hell,
I said I thought you name was Mary,
that's what you said at the party,
man this is getting scary,
I'm gonna shoot somebody......

Then Ruphus starts yellin' and screaming
saying Cathy this is all yo fault,
she throws a pillow at him
and says you was creepin' too the only difference
is you didn't get caught,
Chuck screams out we're in love
Cathy says love my ass
Ruphus say they gettin' married
then I shoot one in the air,
then I say not another one of
you sons of bitches say a word,
cause all of this shit I'm going through

call up my home,
and a man picks up the phone......................


Now I'm dashin home
Doin 85
Swervin lane to lane
Wit fire in my eyes
I got a million thoughts
goin through my mind
I'm thinkin about what imma do and who I'm gonna do it to when I get home
How could I have been so blind
And then I look in my rear view
I cannot believe this
(Whoo whoo whoo)
Damn, here comes a police man
He drove right up on me and flashed his light
Then I pulled over without thinkin twice
He hopped out the car and walked over to me
And said license and registration please
I looked up at him and said
Officer, is there somethin wrong
He said no, except you were were doin 85 in a 60 mile zone
Then I said officer
Let me explain please
Ya see the truth of the matter is
Is that I got an emergency
He said no excuses
And no exception
i said this is some bullshit...... then give's me the ticket
Said have a nice day and walked away
I said yeah right and drove away
Then I turned my radio on
And did 55 all the way home
I pulled up in the driveway
Hopped out and slammed the car door
Then go around the back
Bust up in the house and she screamin
Whats all that for
Then I'm like woman I called this house
And a man picked up my phone
Then she said calm down
Did you forget
My brother Twan came home
And thats all I could say was oh
Wit a stupid look on my face
Said I forgot he came home today
And she said thats okay
Because honey I understand
She said you dont have to explain
Then I took her by the hand
I kissed her and then we went to the room
Then I turned some music on
Apologized one more time
Then went down and start gettin it on
And she started bitin her lip
Grabbing me and makin noise
Now we makin love and she's my ear whisperin
It's all yours
I said I love you
And she said I love ya, too
Then a tear fell up out my eye
Then I called her my sunshine
And then she looked at me
And said baby go deeper please
And thats when I start goin crazy
Like I was tryin to give her a baby
The room feel like its spinnin
We keep turnin and turnin
As if we were in a whirlwind
The way our toes are curlin
The next thing ya know, she starts goin real wild
And screamin my name
Then I said baby, we must slow down
Before I bust a vessel in my brain
And she said please no dont stop
And I said I caught a cramp
And she said please keep on goin
I said my leg is about to crack
Then she cries out
Oh my goodness, I'm about to climax
And I said cool
Just let go of my leg
She says you're the perfect lover
I said I cant go no futher
Then I flip back the cover
Oh my God, a rubber...


And now, I'm like
Well, well, well
What the fuck is this
A condom in my bed
Ya better start talkin, bitch
'Fore I take a match and
Burn this muthafucka down
I said you better start talkin
And start talkin right god damn now
Then she said baby
I'm so speechless
Then I said my baby
You gone be breathless
If ya dont start talkin quick
Woman, I'm gone have a fit
You dont know what ya fuckin wit
Girl ya better cut the bullshit
Now its obvious somebody has been all up in my home
In my bed, and plus I smell cigarettes
Now and sniffin and lookin around
Suspicious like someone's here
Then I looked in her eyes and in her eyes
There was so much fear
Pull out my gun said is he still here
She shook her head and said no
I'm checkin behind every door
She cried out he left right after you called
I said what the fuck was you thinking
You thought that I wouldnt find this out
Then I said you must be crazy or on crack to have somebody off up in my muthafuckin house
She hopped up and said thats enough
She said I cant take no more
And then she said you made your point
But now its time to even the score
She said I know all about last night
And where you went when you left the club
Said thats right, nigga I was there

She said I thought you was wit yo guys
She said you was at that bitches house
And dont even try to act suprised
Said bab, she said shut up
Dont you say a word
It aint nothin you can say
That I aint already heard
Then I said woman, dont you try to turn it all around
Cause the fact still remains that someone else was in my house
Then she said you're right about that
Somethin did go down, but I dont have to turn it around
Cause what goes around comes back around
I'm movin a little closer to her
She's trippin over the furniture
She said wait first, just let me explain
I said no need to, just give me his name
And then she said uh...uh

She said please sit down in a chair
And I say no, I'm standin up
And she cries out I'm so scared to tell you because of what ya might do
And I screamed look girl you better give me this man's name and I'm not playin wit you
She says okay, wipes her nose and asks me about a girl named Tina
I thought to myself, said it sound familiar

Okay, all of last week, I was out of the house, only going home to change once. You could say I took a vacation from my family, and those of you that know me personally, know I hate my family. Anyways, on Tuesday, my cousin, Denise, calls Juan looking for me, since that's the only number that they have. I call back, and she asks me "What happened to you?" and "Where have you been?" "I'm fine", I tell her.

Then, on Friday, she calls again. "Where have you been?" "I haven't seen you in awhile, are you okay?" "Are you coming home tonight?" I answer her questions, and I hang up, not too happy.

Juan: What happened? You look sad?
Me: No I call home, just to let them know I'm alive, and I get the third degree! I was just letting them know I was okay. I didn't expect a Spanish Inquisition...

I expected Cardinal Ximinez to run in, with Cardinals Biggles and Fang, and say:

Cardinal Ximinez: NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition! Our chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear...fear and surprise.... Our two weapons are fear and surprise...and ruthless efficiency.... Our *three* weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope.... Our *four* *Amongst* our weapons.... Amongst our weaponry...are such elements as fear, surprise.... I'll come in again.

Me: I didn't expect a Spanish Inquisition...

Ximinez: NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition! Amongst our weaponry are such diverse elements as: fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency, an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope, and nice red uniforms - Oh damn!
[To Cardinal Biggles] I can't say it - you'll have to say it.
Biggles: What?
Ximinez: You'll have to say the bit about 'Our chief weapons are ...'
Biggles: [rather horrified]: I couldn't do that...

Me: I didn't expect a Spanish Inquisition...

Biggles: Er....
Ximinez: Expects...
Biggles: Expects... Nobody expects
Ximinez: Inquisition.
Biggles: I know, I know! Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition. In fact, those who do expect -
Ximinez: Our chief weapons are...
Biggles: Our chief weapons
Ximinez: Surprise...
Biggles: Surprise and --
Ximinez: Okay, stop. Stop. Stop there - stop there. Stop. Phew! Ah! ... our chief weapons are surprise...blah blah blah. Cardinal, read the charges.
Fang: You are hereby charged that you did on diverse dates commit heresy against the Holy Church. 'My old man said follow the--'
Biggles: That's enough.
[To me] Now, how do you plead?
Me: Innocent. I'm not Catholic, you moron.
Ximinez: Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Oh... sorry...

The News Will Never Be The Same....   
02:46pm 08/08/2005

I feel like I lost a member of my family. ABC News anchor Peter Jennings died last night of Lung Cancer.

Taken from Yahoo!:

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Peter Jennings, a high school dropout who rose to become prime-time anchorman for ABC News and whose career spanned five decades, has died of lung cancer at 67.

The Canadian-born Jennings, host of ABC's "World News Tonight" since 1983, died on Sunday at his home in Manhattan. The newsman announced in April he had lung cancer and was beginning chemotherapy.

"Peter died with his family around him, without pain and in peace. He knew he'd lived a good life," his family said in a statement.

Jennings was the last of a generation of long-serving lead anchors for major U.S. broadcasters.

"He was a superb writer," colleague Barbara Walters said in a special broadcast on ABC. She also recalled that "no one could ad-lib like Peter."

Jennings had a 41-year career with ABC after joining the network in 1964. He soon went head-to-head with the toughest competition in the business, anchoring the prime-time news from 1965 to 1967 at a time when Walter Cronkite on CBS and the team of David Brinkley and Chet Huntley on NBC were dominant.

Jennings established the first American television news bureau in the Arab world in 1968, serving as ABC News' bureau chief for Beirut for seven years. He had a major role in the network's coverage of the Summer Olympics in Munich, when Israeli athletes were taken hostage.

After the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, Jennings anchored ABC broadcasts for more than 60 hours. The coverage garnered awards and critical acclaim. TV Guide called him "the center of gravity."

"For four decades, Peter has been our colleague, our friend, and our leader in so many ways. None of us will be the same without him," ABC News President David Westin wrote in announcing Jennings' death to colleagues.


The Toronto-born newsman, who smoked when he was younger, stunned colleagues when he informed them of his illness in an e-mail on April 5. He said he would begin a program of chemotherapy the following week.

"There will be good days and bad, which means that some days I may be cranky and some days really cranky," he wrote.

ABC noted in its special broadcast that Jennings regularly called into the program during his illness, offering suggestions, comments and criticisms.

He had hoped to return to his anchor duties, but never did.

Ted Koppel, anchor of ABC's "Nightline" program, recalled the anchor's dashing good looks, and noted a resemblance to the actor Roger Moore in some of the James Bond movies.

"He and I joked the last time I went up to visit just a few days ago that between the two of us we'd put in 83 years at ABC News." Koppel said. "He was a warm and loving and surprisingly sentimental man."

Jennings was named anchor and senior editor of "World News Tonight" in 1983. He won numerous awards and honors in his more than 20 years in the position.

"It's impossible to believe that he is not going to be with us," Walters said.

In a tribute to Jennings on Monday, President Bush said he was saddened by the anchorman's death. "A lot of Americans relied upon Peter Jennings for their news. He became a part of the life of a lot of our fellow citizens."

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice called Jennings "my close, personal friend" and "a man of conscience and integrity." She added: "Peter Jennings represented all that was best in journalism and public service. His reporting was a guide to all of us who aspire to better the world around us."

Jennings, the son of a noted Canadian broadcaster, Charles Jennings, became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 2003 and held dual citizenship.

The passing of Jennings was the final chapter as an era of broadcast anchors with a commanding on-air presence came to an end.

NBC's Tom Brokaw stepped down in December after 21 years as anchor of "NBC Nightly News" and Dan Rather ended his 24-year career as CBS lead anchor last month, after a discredited report on President Bush's military service.

Jennings is survived by his wife Kayce Freed, and his two children Elizabeth, 25 and Christopher, 23. (Additional reporting by Joanne Allen and Doina Chiacu in Washington)

I remember watching World News Tonight at an early age with my mom. Our routine was after our cartoons and homework, we'd watch Channel 7 Eyewittness News, and then ABC World News Tonight with Peter Jennings, here in NYC on WABC/Channel 7. We never watched NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw, or CBS Evening News with Dan "What's the Frequency, Kenneth?" Rather. It was always ABC.

This is one of the reasons that I'm sad. A part of my memories of my mom, when she was healthy, has just left this world. Another reason is because he died the way my grandfather did. Of Lung Cancer. That hurt me even more. I believe he lived a good life, though. Not just a world-renowned anchor, but as a person.

Goodbye, Mr. Jennings. Rest in Peace. My mom and my grandfather will be ecstatic to meet you.

Yesterday, I think I took the final step in "moving on". And you know what? What was it I was angry about again? To tell the truth, I don't think that I care anymore. Why? Because I saw something, that honestly, I don't think I brought.

I saw an unforgettable look of happiness on her face. And I was happy.

I'll just say this: I'm more than happy for you. You'll always be Best Friend #2, and you will always have that special place in my heart. Thanks for the fun times, and thanks for the memories. Good luck and congrats.

P.S.: Don't fuck this up. Either of you...

P.P.S.: I'll get you back for bringing up that embarassing moment from H.S. You know which one! You said you wouldn't bring it up, again damnit! Not Cool!

Yesterday, I think I took the final step in "moving on". And you know what? What was it I was angry about again? To tell the truth, I don't think that I care anymore. Why? Because I saw something, that honestly, I don't think I brought.

I saw an unforgettable look of happiness on her face. And I was happy.

I'll just say this: I'm more than happy for you. You'll always be Best Friend #2, and you will always have that special place in my heart. Thanks for the fun times, and thanks for the memories. Good luck and congrats.

P.S.: Don't fuck this up. Either of you...

P.P.S: I'll get you back for mentioning that embarassing moment in H.S., and you know which one!!

A Hectic Day   
03:17pm 26/07/2005
  Sheesh. Yesterday was tiring. Here's a quick recap:

11:00 - 3:00: Stood in line at Madison Square Garden to get my voucher for 2 free tickets to any New York Ranger game this season. Mingled with fans, did some Ranger chants, got autographs(including a picture with Ranger legend Rod Gilbert, I'll post that as soon as I get access to a scanner), and got a free hot dog and soda. Speaking of the soda, I advise no one to try the new Coca-Cola Zero. It tastes like crap.

3:00 - 7:00: Walked with Juan from 42nd and 6th(Bryant Park) down to Chinatown, where we were supposed to meet with someone who was coming to the Primerica meeting, but instead, met with someone I did not expect. And yes, I was civil and nice, and am ready to be that way from now on. Took train back to Penn Station, and decided to join Juan at meeting.

7:00 - 10:00: Sat at meeting, and, I admit, was further convinced to join. Not just by Juan, not just by Juan's cute co-worker, but by the speakers and their presentations. Afterwards, I gained another client in the computer business I'm starting up with Juan and Kareem. Exited train and went home.

So... how was your day?

Okay. There was some backlash from my last post, and for that, I'm apologizing.

I'm sorry for telling my sex life over the internet. It honestly is no one else's business, except me and the one I did it with. Certain people, especially those who've screwed me over, and have made me into the bad guy in things, should be, and are, on a need-to-know basis: They don't need to know. I'm not a tell-tale book, nor am I a "puppy". Those ships have sailed into the west. My love life and my sex life are my own business, and will stay between me, whomever else I deem worthy to tell, and the person I did it with.

Because of what happened, I am removing that post, and possible concurrent posts from this journal.

And to the one I got involved in this, I am sorry. If I hurt you, I didn't mean it. I never meant to break your trust. I hope you can give our friendship a chance. I'm not the jerk/asshole some turn me out to be. If you ever want to talk to me again, give me a call.

Oh, and to the one who commented: You, my friend, have no right saying anything you've said about her. Honestly, she's more reliable a friend, as of recent, then you have been for a good while. You've pushed a button I, honestly, never thought you pushed. She may not be anything like you, but you know what? As of recent, that's a good thing. The way you've been the past few months, you're beneath her. Talk to me when you've changed back. Hope you and Jabroni have a good life.

An Apology(but not to whom you think...); A Clarification   
09:19pm 17/06/2005
mood: Enlightened, and reborn
Lord knows if you'll ever see this, but I just wanted to say that I'm sorry. A lot of shit has happened in the past two weeks that has made me realize a few things, that were pointed out to me once before.

For the past two years and some change, I've been wanting to go to war with you. You took away something that I thought was irreplacable. I was wrong. According to some people, you exposed a flaw in what was there. At first, I didn't appreciate it, and like I said, I wanted to hurt you immensely. I kept living in denial, with hopes that things would change or would soon come around. I was wrong, again. Constanly, I wanted to do damage to you and your life. But, something happened that made me change my mind, and my ways. I'm not sure if it's a new feeling, a realization, or a epifiny(I know that's spelled wrong), but it made me open my eyes to the truth, and it showed me what and who my real friends are. For that, I wanted to say thank you.

However, you still did what you did, and I can never really forgive you for it. I, still, consider you an asshole, hands down. But, I no longer hold the harsh malice towards you like I did before. Something, and maybe someone new has entered my life, who knows. I'll follow this road, and see it to the end. We may never break bread, or cross each other's path again in life, but if we do, I'll extend my hand to you. Until then, take care of what you now have. Cherish it. It's priceless.

Adios, pardner.

P.S.: If this is someone new, try not to steal this one, please? For me?

The apology was for someone I've wronged, but this is to clear up something with/about someone else:

It's not my fault.

I'm not the one who proved to be flaky and dishonest. I tried to be friends, even tried to keep hangin' out. But, it's not cool when someone pushes you back for something else, knowing you were looking forward to it, just because it got you out of the house, and with one of the people you consider a "best friend". I admit, I did something wrong, and I'm sorry for it. But, it was my goddamned birthday... I overlooked the fact that I didn't get anything for Christmas from this person, even though I got them someting. I overlooked the fact that the person didn't get me anything for my birthday, even though I got them something for theirs. But, you couldn't, at least, come to a party for two of your friends, even though, you know they'd be there for you? That's low.

I know that you're sitting there, reading this, justifying your actions, and somehow blaming this on me. But, you can't. And the truth of the matter is this:

It's not my fault.

The Week That Was: Birthday Edition   
04:30pm 14/06/2005
mood: calm
music: Some song from Street Fighter Alpha Cisco's playing
June 8th has come and gone, and so, now, I'm 23(I really do hate that number). The past week was pretty eventful. Here's a brief of what happened, starting the 7th of June!

Tuesday, June 7: I got drunk really quick off of the insane combo of two Tequila shots and no food, all day. Dumb move, yes. But fun!

Wednesday, June 8; My Birthday: Gained cash from Aunt Jo, then went over to Francisco's place, where his mom and his sister, Yvette, took me to dinner. That was nice and cool of them. Afterwards, met back up with Cisco and Christina(the girlfriend from the smelling incident), and they told me that they are engaged. I'm not sure if it's to be married or in Mortal Kombat, but they are engaged(kidding, it is to be married). Then, I saw my grandmother when I got home, and got more cash.

Thursday, June 9; Brooklyn/Queens day/Shamar's Birthday: Picked a movie I've always wanted to see: "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"(Funny as hell). Hung out with Cisco, then went to a basketball game with Juan and Shamar, followed by viewing of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail".

Friday, June 10: Did a favor for Bonnie that day, and got a Yankee Baseball clock for my b-day(which I forgot when I was there, I will pick it up soon!). Watched more of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail", followed by "Monty Python's Flying Circus".

Saturday, June 11: Juan held a cookout, in honor of Shamar and I's birthdays, and Juan and Shamar's promotion within Primerica. Things happened that day, things you didn't think/wouldn't believe, which will be mentioned in a future post.

Sunday, June 12: Was supposed to go over to James' place to watch ECW: One Night Stand, but his landlord is being an ass. He doesn't want to fix anything in their apartment, but wants rent. James is refusing to give rent. So, the landlord cut off the power, and James, my sister-in-law, and my niece stayed at my sister-in-law's mother's place.

Monday, June 13: Nothing really happened. Just hung out with Cisco and Chris.

And now, today. Cisco and I are going to go shoot pool later on tonight, and probably drink and cause trouble. Good times!

And now, I leave you with a quote from a great movie: Monty Python and the Holy Grail:

Sir Galahad: Zoot!
Dingo: No, I am Zoot's identical twin sister, Dingo.
[He tried to get past her]
Dingo: Where are you going?
Sir Galahad: I seek the Grail! I have seen it, here in this castle!
Dingo: No, oh no! Bad, bad Zoot!
Sir Galahad: What is it?
Dingo: She has been setting a light to our beacon, which, I've just remembered, is Grail shaped. It's not the first time we've had this problem.
Sir Galahad: It's not the real Grail?
Dingo: Oh, wicked, bad, naught evil Zoot! Oh, she is a bad person, and she must pay the penalty!
[Turns to camera]
Dingo: Do you think this scene should have been cut? We were so worried when the boys were writing it, but now we're glad! It's better than some of the previous scenes I think.
Left Head: Our was better visually.
Dennis: Ours was committed, it wasn't just a string of pussy jokes.
Bridgekeeper: Get on with it.
Tim: Yes! Get on with it!
Army: Get on with it!
Dingo: Oh, thank you, thank you!
God: Get on with it!

Oh, to be drunk and 1/4th Irish(I am fuckin' wasted!!!)   
09:31pm 07/06/2005
mood: drunk
Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen and down the mountain side
The summer's gone and all the flowers are dying
'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide.

But come ye back when summer's in the meadow
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
And I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy I love you so

And if you come and all the flowers are dying
And I am dead, as dead I well may be
You'll come and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an "Ave" there for me

And I shall hear, tho' soft you tread above me
And all my dreams will warm and sweeter be
If you'll not fail to tell me that you love me
I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.
("Danny Boy". No one knows who wrote the song, but it is too beautiful to be written by man, but by angels...)

When Irish eyes are smiling sure it's like a morning spring
In the lilt of Irish laughter you can hear the angels sing
When Irish hearts are happy all the world seems bright and gay
And when Irish eyes are smiling sure they steal your heart away

(When Irish eyes are smiling sure it's like a morning spring)
Honey you know the springtime of life is the sweetest of all
There is never a real care or regret
And while springtime is ours throughout all youth hours
Let us smile each chance we get
When Irish hearts are happy...
(Hank Locklin: "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling")

I'm puttin' this link here so I can remember it!
