Trouble

My mom is really upset and not talking to me because she found out that I signed for Ashley's car. She is really, really pissed and yelling and she is saying that I'm not allowed to hang out with Ashley anymore. I'm 22 so she can't really do that, but she made an excellent point: I have been there for Ashley through EVERYTHING and she juts keeps fucking me over. She's not my friend.

Shes in this movie Pieces of April it comes out Rocktober I can.t wait for it I want it to come out now heres The Trailer Iv been waiting all year to see this
OH Joey Potter it looks like you done a good movie

Yay!

Today is a really great day at work for me. Not only is it the Friday before a long weekend, but I came to work today to find the following email from the Comptroller, my department head:
"Gwen,
With your upcoming involvement in the Budgeting and Accounting processes we are transferring your function and direct reporting from Joyce to Mary. This will be effective September 1, 2003."

Now, when this happened to my friend Anthony (transfer of function) he became a financial analyst. From how it is explained to me I am to be doing the exact same thing as Anthony, I will be supporting the Budget Driector and the Chief Accountant. This is really exciting for me becuase while its not been expressly stated the transfer from Administrative Staff Assistant to Financial Analyst means a change in unions as well as a pay increase to put me on the same level as Anthony. Knowing that its a unionized environment I am not gonna hold my breath waiting for the raise, but Financial Analyst looks much better on a resume than Administrative Assistant. I am SO excited. Not to metnion the fact that Mary is much more amicable and agreeable and far less nosy than Joyce. Wooo woooo wooooooo!

New Blogs & A Contest

Everyone please welcome Docks, Jen (aka Selective Thoughts) and IA. Much entertainment will be found and readily available in the "Roll Call" on your immediate right.

Now onto the contest....We are adopting the little fella pictured below. He' is a Shih Tzu and needs a home. What should we name him? The winner will get much blog proppage.

8 Mile²

I decided to do a follow up post to the almighty and wise Don Labia's previous one. Earlier this year he purchase a bootleg copy of the movie from Chinatown in New York and I wanted to read you the little description blurb from the back of the box. I did NOT edit this in any way, if I had a working scanner I would let y'all see for yourselves:

The stroy begin froms Detroit of winter 1995. In the hip-hop of a by name The Shelter Club, each to the weekend singers all get together, proceed the perform-ance game of man to man 60 second, and finally be decided by crowd who is this of enter the next to the out the week champion.

Lots of goings on, but nothing really to write about....

The summer is rapidly winding down, school starts Tuesday and work just keeps on keepin' on. I have to say though, this has been one of the Best Summers I've had in a LONG time. From the Boston trip, to the Strike Long Island Party, Anna's 4th of July party, Doogie's softball game, the Bronx Zoo trip, nights out in the city, random keggers in Shaolin where we tried to fight really big dudes, the Blow Job room at Bar 9, Silent Film Score shows, Bon Jovi Concerts with Tazz, trips to Jones Beach, nights out at bars, my birthday, Anna's birthday, God, such great times. I love all of you who were there to share in it (even if I couldn't figure out how to work in a link to ya!). You're all truly amazing people and I'm both proud and lucky to call y'all friends.

Okay enough of the mushy, smooshy crap...I'm just in a really great mood. I dunno why, well, I DO know why (but thats none of your bizniss!). I think we all need to get together and find a really great way to "Officially" close out the summer, or at very least get crackin' on our Halloween plans or perhaps a weekend in Montreal. Don't worry, all you underagers can come too. Montreal is a veritable mecca for the 18+ crowd, legal drinking, gambling, amazing nightlife, the American dollar goes pretty far there and its only a short jaunt across the border. What do we say, eh?

Oh and I know its not over yet, but Boz totally kicked ass in his Labor Day Weightloss Challenge. And while we're talking about the other crazy cats in the "Magical Land of Blog" I have to say, I really miss Mo.

Thats all she wrote....

A Few Entirely Random Post Lunchies Thoughts...

This song totally rocks and I can't get it out of my head nor can I stop listening to it over and over and over again. The whole cd is pretty good, acutally, but this one is just so darn catchy.

I am quite happy as I just got an extremely "yay" package in the mail from Sephora I think I might apply for a jobby there during the holiday season just for a bitchin' discount.


My face hurts because I can't stop smiling or thinking about you and I am so excited to see you tomorrow and I just wanted to thank you for the billionth time for reminding me how great it is when you're giddy like a little five year old. :)

Trace Element will be playing Thursday October 23, 2003 at the The Thirsty Turtle in Stamford. Happy hour and rockin' eye candy? You all better be there!

I Stink!

In posting about bands, I completely forgot to mention Digger Phelps (the band, not the guy). Its probably becuase of my secret subconcious vendetta against Whitey and his band. Nah, I dont really hate you, I just am a forgetful young Gwen sometimes.

Weekend Recap

Friday:
I had a horrible and otherwise awfully boring day at work. This was counteracted by a really stellar night out for some dinner at Stir Crazy followed by some rocking skee ball action at Dave & Busters. I also won a grover doll which is SO cute and I discovered I have enough tickets to win the television and the Atari. Yes, the old skool awesome 1980's atari. I want that mother! It all was capped off by some innocent smooching in the parking lot with a very cute boy. (c:

Saturday:
Yard work (feh!) with my mommy and then some shopping and some napping. Then I headed down into the city with the Dapper Don, Jon and Anna for some yummy munchies at Monster Sushi. I will leave out the part how Jon, Don & I got lost in the 'hood of Brooklyn (BK, holla!). Manhattan traffic sucks balls especially down by the Ferry.

Sunday:
Much needed sleep, Megan's Birthday BBQ and some good old fashioned Carrie time on Sex In the City. I am pooped right now and looking forward to hittin' the proverbial hay, but I have a feeling I'm gonna be up for a bit. Why are weekends so short?!?!

Sleeping to Dream

**No, these aren't about ANYBODY, so chill out, they're just awesome lyrics to amazing songs by Jason Mraz...fuck the remedy, go check out the rest of his stuff, he's phenomenal**

I'm dreaming of sleeping next to you I'm feeling like a lost little boy in a brand new town
I'm counting my sheep and each one that passes is another dream to ashes
and they all fall down.
As I lay me down tonight,
I close my eyes and what a beautiful sight
I'm sleeping to dream about you
I'm so tired of having to live without you
So I'm sleeping to dream about you and I'm so tired
I found myself in the riches (Your eyes, your lips, your hair.) Well you were everywhere
But I woke up in the ditches. I hit the light and I thought you might be here
but you were nowhere. You were nowhere at home.
As I lay me back to sleep
Lord I pray that I can keep
Sleeping to dream about you
I'm so tired of having to live without you
So I'm sleeping to dream about you and I'm so tired
(It's just a little a lullaby to keep myself from crying myself to sleep at night.)
Sleeping to dream about you
I'm so tired of having to live without you
So I'm sleeping to dream about you and I'm so tired

(Alternate Title: Drugs Are Bad, Mmmkay?)


My ex boyfriend is a complete and utter bo-tard. He's still really drugged up, he's still moving furniture and thinks that somehow a little fairy will flitter down and come and make him a rockstar. (Good luck with that, idiot.) Apparently within the last couple of days he has had a run-in with God. This was such a big deal that he had to call me and tell me about it and how its a "sign" that we should get back together.

When he and I were dating our anniversary was 02.22.02. Apparently Thursday night he was having a rough night, the drugs weren't being so kind to him and he was feeling like the failure he is. He went to the ATM to withdrawl money, his balance was $22.02. He went to the counter, bought his pack of Marlboro red's and headed home. On his way home (and I recall all of this based on his telling it to me last night) he asked God to send him someone who would help him and a sign that he wasn't completely alone and doomed to fail. He goes upstairs, smokes a joint and picks up his sister's cell phone. He scrolls through her phone book and my name (and new cell # he didn't have) show up at #22. According to my simple-minded ex, it was "fate" that "our numbers" kept popping up everywhere so he had to call me and try and get back together with me. I have also been informed that if I deny that we should get back together that I am lying to myself.

Apparently he's unaware of the fact that a) he choked me and threatened to cut and burn me b) accused me of stealing 2 grand from him and c) cheated on me twice (once with his ex with herpes who he later found out he had gotten pregnant, but he swears they used protection). Apparently now though, even though she's terminated her pregnancy, he realizes sex is no joke and "hasn't been with anyone since me", except for that girl who his sister told me he was sleeping with in the HALLWAY OF THEIR APARTMENT! (Classy!).

I told him to get bent and not call my house anymore. Why is my life filled with retards?

You & I Both

Was it you who spoke the words that things would happen but not to me
Oh things are gonna happen naturally
And taking your advice I'm looking on the bright side
And balancing the whole thing
But often times those words get tangled up in lines
And the bright lights turn to night
Until the dawn it brings
A little bird who'll sing about the magic that was you and me
Cause you and I both loved
What you and I spoke of
What you and I spoke of
Others only dream of the love that I love
See I'm all about them words
Over numbers, unencumbered numbered words
Hundreds of pages, pages, pages forwards
More words then I had ever heard and I feel so alive
Now you and I, you and I
Not so little you and I anymore
And with this silence brings a moral story
more importantly evolving is the glory of a boy
you and I both loved what you and I spoke of
and others just read of and if you could see now
well I'm already finally out of
and it's okay if you have go away
just remember the telephone works both ways
and if I never ever hear it ring
if nothing else I'll think the bells inside
have finally found you someone else and that's okay
cause I'll remember everything you sang
you and I both loved what you and I spoke of
and others just read of and if you could see now
well I'm already finally out of words.
- j. mraz

Cease Fire

I dont know how everything got so out of hand with everyone. I don't know when we became the people we hate. I don't know when or how or why we split off from a community where factions were being formed and chaos was pitting people against each other just to form a new, smaller one which has broken down more rapidly.

I say that I dont like drama, yet I often find myself awash in a sea of it. I have a tendency to care too much about what people will think about me so I take to a group mentality. Thats wrong, I am a free thinking, intelligent individual and I am capable of thinking for myself. I know I don't have to like everyone and I know not everyone has to like me. I'm not a bad person at the core, but I've become very ugly on the inside. Its fun having close friends and I love them dearly, but I've also made some quick personality judgements becuase of it.

I know I am gonna catch hell and mockings from some people for this, but I dont care, if you were a good person you would respect me for being an adult and for recognizing my mistakes.

I would like to offer an apology to several people: Liz, Matt, Maria, Amy, Joe and I'm sure there are others that I'm forgetting: I am sorry for not taking the time to get to know you before I judged you and I'm sorry that I may have treated you harshly out of going with the group. I'm sorry that I let what other people had to say influence how I treated you. That was wrong and I know an apology is too little and often times too late, but I hope you will at least recognize this as an extension of an olive branch. I'm not asking that we become best friends nor am I asking that you even try and give me the time of day, thats entirely up to you, but I hope you will at least realize that I am sorry for how I treated you in the past. That was petty, childish and othewise wrong. The pot shots that were taken are not "my style" and I'm embarassed for that, alot of what I know (or rather don't know) about you is all based on things others have said, and really, who am I (who is anyone) to judge someone else.

To my friends and others with whom I am NOT fighting. I hope you won't hold this against me. This is all getting very petty though, and its not fun anymore when we have to walk on eggshells. I'm not saying I want to be best friends with everyone, nor do I expect all of us to get along and hang out, but I hope you will all start to realize the path we were collectively headed down is wrong. I want this to continue to be as fun as it was, like back in the Hard Rock Farewell party, that was a fun time. We're all adults so lets take one anothers hand and all climb out of the sandbox. I love you all, but I can't stand the fighting. Its really starting to get to me. I am blaming no one and I hope you will all see that, I just need to take some time away and "unplug" to sort myself out. I'm not expecting everyone to get together and sing and be happy, but I do hope some of these rifts can be mended as truly, there is no need for them in the first place. If we all got to know one another before making these cursory assesments of character we'd all be a lot better off. Who knows, we could be missing out on knowing some really great people. I am in no way resigning from the babies board or this blog nor am I calling anyone out on anything. I just felt I needed to get thsi all off my chest.

On Life...

Right now I feel as though I'm on the verge of an era of civil unrest. I don't know where it will errupt from first: my family, my freinds or my friends from home. My mom is constantly venting how much she is angry with my aunt (who lives across the street from us) and its getting to a boiling point becuase all of the responisiblity for 3 households is being dumped on my mother. Granted, my brother and I help out, but we don't really know how much more we can do. I take that back, I help out, my brother runs around and smokes pot with the other neighborhood hoodlums, and he owes me $135. (Pay up you smarmy bitch!)

Last night I had a dream that my best friend from home, Ashley and I, had a huge falling out and it was very public and very bitter and it was a dirty, mean and otherwise nasty war of words. I'm scared to think this might be coming. I don't forsee any reason why it would, but generally when I dream about something thats not totally insane and wacky it will generally happen within a month. I'm also starting to rethink my whole "Hey, Ash, let's get an apartment together" kick I was on. I can only be responsible for me and I have to lead by example, not by doing everything for people.

Finally this morning I saw that a lot of drama had apparently occured over night. I think people are starting to think that my friends and I are bitches. Yes, we are bitches to a certain extent. Yes, we are "those girls" who are gossipy and mock everyone, but we do it more as a joke than anything else. People really need to learn to lighten up. Everyone gets down on us for beign bitchy, but I know personally that my outward "I'm better than you" act is just that, an act, 'cause on the inside I'm quite insecure, but being able to act this way gives me some sort of sense of self esteem in my life.

Maybe I'm just PMSy and moody. Who knows.

B O S T O N

God, where do I even start trying to recap this weekend?!? I know I'm gonna leave a kajillion things out, but here goes:

Friday
Anna, Missy and I arrive in Boston in the early afternoon and we're greeted by a cutie with the Bah-ston accent who wants to "pahk our cah". Check in and check out the room. Real plates and glasses, silverware, a fridge, heated floors everything was brand new, free highspeed internet access, alright, we were kinda pimpin'. We were starving so we wandered around the Charlestown 'hood, but we some how ended up in the ghetto, so we called for a cab and decided not to wait on the corner 'cause we'd look like some hookers. The cabbie picks us up and takes us to Newbury Street for some K I L L E R shopping. We had a quick lunch and realized in Boston that they don't talk about the penis so much as they talk about the "CAHCK" (those wacky Massholes!) Anyhow we hit up the shops at the Prudential Center and spent WAY too much money in Sephora (you devil store, you!). Back to the room for some time primp and get ready to go out.

We got all gussied up to go out and pimp it with some of the local boys. We asked the valet guys in the lobby where we should go and they suggested a delightful little spot which I now hold dear to my heart, called The Rack. We were all a little skeptical on it, but it turned out to be a veritable martini Mecca! At the Rack we enjoyed a myriad of delightful new 'tinis like the trusted old favorite the Apple Martini. This one, however, had a new twist, it was served in a glass rimmed with green sugar, and garnished with a cherry, candy apple slice and a little jungle animal toy. There were also some new yummy martinis like the watermelon martini and the blue raspberry martini. Tres yum! Needless to say the drinks kinda snuck up on us and we started chatting up the guys next to us and found out that one of them, "Awesome" Andy, is a super big fan of local New York radio superstar, Sheeplover. Being that we have the pleasure of knowing him by his real identity, Don Labia we got to score some extra points with Andy and his boys. We got drunker and decided to call it a night and when we got back to the hotel there was much running through the halls, pleading with the front desk guy to let us swim and ordering pizza to be had.

Saturday
We were a little hung over Saturday morning, and poor Missy was feeling sickies, but we decided to head out to the New England Aquarium where we got our picture taken with Sammy the Seal (that pic will come later, 'cause its on "real film"), we saw some penguins and got a little annoyed with all the little bitchy kids in there, so we hightailed it on out. Oh, I almost forgot: this is a big fuck you to Digital City because every single time we looked something up on there we found out it had gone out of business like 2 years previously, like our sushi place where you sit on the floor and are all cool or our psychic or any of the other bum directions you fucks gave us! But I digress, we did some MORE shopping at Faneuil Hall (apparently its pronounced Fan-yull). We waited in the room and napped and what not until the lovely Lisa arrived.

Then we got all gussied up again and headed out for dinner. We came across a place called The Rock Bottom Brewery for a pretty yummy dinner, but not before getting harassed by a bleeding bum for cigarettes. Although it wasn't a total loss cause we were held up long enough outside to run across a bachelor party brimming with hot, HOT guys. Woo wooo!

The night kind of sucked from there, because we went to the Roxy which sucked some seriously hardcore ass. Picture a normal, packed dance club in Manhattan, full of trendy people (even if you LOATHE places like this, just picture it for me). Now: make these people 2 years behind in fashion and remove like three quarters of the people from the club. Age the remaining quarter by 10 years and make half of those Portuguese, now you can imagine perhaps even the littlest bit how shitty the "Boston Roxy" was. We left there to hit up The Good Life because their business card promised oversized martinis, alas there were none. There were, however, some cute boys there (although they were kicked out immediately following this photo).

We decided to split and head back to the Rack so we could show Lisa how good the appletinis were there. We also saw more Boston fashion victims laughed, danced, were accosted by boys, met some normal ones, saw some junk and almost got in a fight over a cab (fucking masshole bitches, we're WAY better). We made it home in one piece and called it a night.

Sunday
We were all sick, we ate sushi, I puked and a bird shit on me, we drove home, we saw a bad accident. The end, thanks for reading this much!! MwAh!

We're Baaaaaaack
