Friends Only... [01 Jan 2012|10:59pm]
4 Said What They Had To Say||Say What You Gotta Say

Just another day... [10 Oct 2004|09:03pm]
[ mood | tired ]

Well this weekend hasn't been too horrible, I reckon. This past Friday, Jessy, me, and Jonathan went to Hard Times and we met up with Tara, Stephanie, and Rodney. Karaoke night was pretty cool. I sang quite a few songs like 'On the Way Down' (by Ryan Cabrera), 'Outside' (by StainD), 'My Own Prison' (by Creed) and a couple more. Then I stayed at Jonathan's house so I could watch 'Soul Plane'... I wish I could have slept through it. It was absolutely HORRIBLE. Don't watch it. PLEASE. Spare yourself from that horrible hour and a half of movie madness.

Last night when I got off work, I went to Jon's house and we all watched 'The Day After Tommorrow'. It was ok. I didn't like the way it ended. It was pretty unrealistic. I got home around 5:00 this morning and slept until I had to be at work. Then I worked, came home, ate dinner, and watched 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' with my stepdad. (The new one.) Actually as I'm typing this, he's watching the ORIGINAL version. Unfortunatly, I have to work 9AM-11PM Monday, Tuesday, AND Friday. Long days, eh?

I've gotten two job offers this weekend. First off, Friday night at karaoke, Rodney offered me an office position at Food Lion. Then my manager at Movie Gallery offered me a store manager position in Farmville. I don't really know WHAT to do about everything. I'd rather work at Food Lion simply because I do know some people that work there and it isn't an hour away.

Me and Jessy are on the net right now, playing with Yahoo! Personals. I had no clue so many people in this area are on it. I live in such a small town but there are people I know on there... Weird...

Anyhow, later...

I just had to add this because it's really cool. When I was in 9th grade or so, my friend Sandy moved to OH. We wrote each other for awhile but then we just lost touch of each other. Well, I've searched for her before to no avail, but now I've found out she's in a sorority and I contacted one of the other members and she's going to give Sandy my e-mail address and stuff. This is too cool!
This journal is now FRIENDS ONLY! Sorry about that...

Say What You Gotta Say

'I wanted you to know... [28 Sep 2004|12:15am]
[ mood | tired ]

that I love the way you laugh
I wanna hold you high
And steal your pain away'

I absolutely love that song. It's so painful and anguished sounding.

Anyhow, I can't believe it's been over a week since I've updated last. I've been so busy lately, it appears as if time just disappears. About my job, I DON'T think I'm getting it back, BUT I was offered an assistant manager position at my second job, and I'm seriously thinking about taking it. And my car? Still broke down. I've ended staying at Jonathan's house for the majority of the past couple of weeks, because I can't drive over there, so I just ride with him, and the next day, I have a way to work. And since he lives like 20 minutes away, it'd be kinda mean for me to get him to bring me all the way back to town at like 3 in the morning and then have to go all the way back home. Problem solved right? One day, he was running late to work and didn't have time to drop me off, so I got to drive his car for the day. And it's a 5 speed so that was fun. But I still miss not having a car. I hate relying on him and Amanda and, I mean DAMN, everybody for that matter. I've ended up driving my mom's van more than she has. I was going to try to get another car, but I couldn't get a loan. So I think Dad is going to put the repairs to my car on his credit card. It's in the shop as of an hour ago actually, so hopefully they'll fix it tomorrow. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. I never thought I would miss my car so much. But apparently, I've taken advantage of having one. Coming and going as I please. And then when I couldn't anymore, it's like BAM. I can't really go anywhere unless I get Jonathan or Amanda to come get me.

Speaking of Amanda, I don't really know what's going on with her anymore. The last time I actually worked with her, I got mad at her because she was starting to boss me around, and I'm not going to take that shit. Don't be my friend and then all the sudden talk down to me. I was in her position way before she was. And I was much more proficient in my job too. Betty has told me, hands down, that I was the best person in the office. I may slack off some in there. All of us do at some point or another. But I know more about it than ANYONE. I've had Linda ask me stuff about the office before and she's been doing it for 20 or 30 years already. So I really wish Amanda would get off her ego trip. I'm happy that she got the promotion I was promised two years ago. But don't rub it in my face by being a complete ***** to me. Oh well. I hardly ever see her anymore anyways. Every spare moment she has, she's with her boyfriend, and then complains to me that I never want to hang out with her. Um, sorry that ten minutes every two weeks she can spare for me isn't worth it. (Ok, maybe SMALL exaggeration.)

And about my pets... Mom's making me get rid of my dog Kipper, because he killed my cat Vivian. I was very upset about it. She was the cutest cat. :( I'm actually glad I'm getting rid of him, because as much as I love my dog, I really like cats too, and I can't have him killing them when I get them. And this violent streak JUST started. He used to be friendly to other animals. What if he decided to bite a child next or something? I just think it may be safer. My poor Vivan:(

Anyhow, I have to be at work in 5 hours and I have a 15 hour work day ahead of me, so until next time.

Say What You Gotta Say

Whoa things have been so *ugh* lately... [17 Sep 2004|11:13pm]
[ mood | worried ]

Let's see... Things at work have not really gotten any better. I've gotten so tired of being the bitch boy it's not even funny. People may think I gripe about this a lot on here, but you give a place six years of your life, your youth, like I have, and when they screw you over, then you'll understand. I've gotten to the point where I just dread going in. It really does feel different.

On a second note, my wretched car has broken down again. So I'm trying to buy this Mustang from Jessy's boyfriends' dad. I'm kinda sketchy on the situation just because it's got a lot of miles and I don't want to buy another lemon. Not saying his dad would intentionally sell me one or anything, but the car does have a lot of miles on it. So I dunno.

Speaking of Jessy, I read her live journal last night, and it really depressed me. I hate her being so upset over her mom. I just don't understand it. Her mom is such a nice person, so why keep putting Jessy through this? It bothers me to see her hurt so much.

Well, I guess I will head off here now... Me and Chris are going to watch "Mean Girls"... exciting Friday night...

Say What You Gotta Say

The more I think about my job, [18 Aug 2004|03:35pm]
[ mood | pissed off ]

the more it pisses me off. I called to get my schedule today and you know how many days I got? TWO. And one of them is only a five hour shift! I went from 40 hours a week to THIS? I did have an interview at the hospital on Monday. I went by the Human Resource Dept. and asked them if they heard anything about me yet, and they said 'no, we'll call you if we do'. So I drove around for a bit and then I decided just to go straight to that department in the hospital and ask them. So the director went ahead and gave me an interview. I really hope that I get the job. If I do, I'm going to quit Winn Dixie the day I find out. I cannot deal with the stress of thinking about it anymore. It's going to be so weird not working there, because I'm going to miss some of the people I work with, but on the otherhand, it feels weird to be there, so I need to get away from it.

Me and Amanda went to Colonial Heights last night. We ate at Applebee's and then went to see 'Alien vs. Predator'. It was alright. The idea was cool and the action was pretty good. But the movie starts too slow and ends too fast. I WILL say that it leads up to a potential sequel. (What movies don't anymore?) By the way, did you know they are planning a fifth 'Alien' movie? And Sigourney Weaver is supposed to be in it again. How many times can they kill her off? James Cameron may direct the movie. I liked the first three 'Alien' movies. Never really cared about 'Predator' that much. The first one was ok.

You know what movie I think they need to do another sequel of? 'Scream'. I was thinking about it the other day and the series just didn't end right. And the movie will be 10 years old in another two years so I think they should do another sequel for the 10th anniversary.

I did watch 'Godsend' by the way. It was pretty absurd. Good idea until the middle of the movie and then it just got stupid. I guess I should've expected it, but I didn't.


Say What You Gotta Say

I'm waiting... [16 Aug 2004|10:47am]
[ mood | tired ]

for the hospital to call me. I really want a job there so I can quit my current job. I got today off and I'm hoping they will call. But who knows?

Anyhow, me and my mom watched the first 'Kill Bill' last night. I really enjoy those movies. I rented 'Godsend' last night, but didn't have time to watch it. So I may watch it in a little while.

I had to open and close the photo lab by myself yesterday and it went well. Donna came that morning to help me just in case.

Well gotta go. Peace out.

Say What You Gotta Say

Just when I thought things couldn't get worse... [12 Aug 2004|05:01pm]
[ mood | depressed ]

I apparently was wrong. My job has seriously screwed me over. My position which I have had for about four years now was taken from me yesterday. That means...
a. My pay rate could drop
b. My hours will more than likely get cut
c. Aren't 'a' and 'b' bad enough?
So, now instead of working in the office and on the floor, I have been pulled out of it, away from working with a lot of people that I have loved working with, and now I'm stuck in a little rectangular box developing people's pictures, worried that my paycheck is going to really suck. So what is a guy to do? I don't really know at this point. I have thought and thought and thought. And still no ideas are coming to me. I applied for a job at the hospital, but we'll see...

Kill Bill, Volume 2 [11 Aug 2004|11:50am]
[ mood | excited ]

Well I watched 'Kill Bill, Volume 2' again last night and I have to watch it again with my mom tonight. Hahaha. It's ok. It's a great movie. It will only be my third time seeing it in the past seven days.

Anyways, last night I stayed at Jonathan's lake house to watch that movie. Amanda came and fell asleep through the movie again. AGAIN!!! She will NEVER know whether it is a good movie or not, because she can't make it but so far into the movie everytime.

There is one song I really like off the 'Kill Bill 2' soundtrack. It's called 'About Her' by Malcolm McLaren. It's the song that plays when she's lying in bed with BB. I have it stuck in my head.

I'm going to the hospital today to hopefully get a job. I really think it's about time to get rid of the one I have now, as I've had it for six years, and I'm just tired of the BS that comes with it sometimes.

Well, a girl got killed yesterday around here. I heard it was this girl I know named Jackie, but I don't know for sure yet. She was riding a moped on the interstate and got run over by a transfer truck. Horrible way to die. They said it was a really bad scene. I actually feel kind of bad for the person who ran over her. She really shouldn't have been on the interstate with a moped. They don't go but so fast.

Well, I'm going to take a shower now and get ready to go to the hospital. Wish me luck!

Brown White Russians [08 Aug 2004|01:18pm]
[ mood | tired ]

Well, Jon threw a little party at his last night for all of his friends. He bought a ton of alcohol. I bought a little myself. I attempted to make white russians last night, but at first they turned out REALLY bad. They were strong enough to kill. Hahahaha. But then, I made some more, which turned out pretty decently. They tasted more like coffee with milk than anything. Couldn't even taste the vodka in it, which I think it good, because vodka is REALLY strong tasting in my opinion. Well the vodka I used was 100 proof. So it was strong. We had fun for the most part though. We did have some problems when an unwanted guest showed up and didn't leave for awhile. Then after that, everyone just pretty much went to bed because the fun was pretty much over.

But this morning, we started painting Jon's parents' living room. They went to Myrtle Beach this week, and Pam decided she wanted to surprise them and redecorate a little bit. She calls it "While You Were Out:Pam Style". Haha. I'm kinda worried they will freak out, because their white walls are now green. And their white kitchen will soon be yellow. (Which Jon's mom had picked out that color for the kitchen before, but she never got around to getting the paint and painting it.) So hopefully they will like the work everyone has done. We can only pray, right?

Well, I'm off to work.

Say What You Gotta Say

Another day... [05 Aug 2004|01:03pm]
[ mood | hungry ]

Well guess what I'm doing today. Yep, you guessed it. I'm going to work today in an hour and a half. Good times, eh?

Anyways, the past couple of days have been the same. Work, work, and in case I forget to mention, work. I have to work both jobs tomorrow. Then Saturday I'm off, which I have to watch the kids until my stepdad gets home from work, cos mom is going somewhere, but then I'm going over to Jon's house. Then I work everyday again until Wednesday, which isn't too bad. Oddly enough, I like to have either Tuesdays or Wednesdays off. I guess if I could have my choice, I would be off every weekend. HAHAHA. But I guess that would be everyone's choice.

I'm AM glad that 'Kill Bill 2' comes out on DVD this coming Tuesday, so I can watch it Wednesday! I went over to Jonathan's house last night when I got off and watched a movie called 'Tales From the Crypt: Demon Knight'. It was kinda cheesy in a way. Actually it was very cheesy. But it was still kinda cool anyways. Some cheesy movies are good. I got some new movies in yesterday that I had ordered from Columbia House. I got 'Batman Returns' (the one with Michelle Pfeiffer) and 'The Shining' (the Jack Nicholson version). Both of which are great movies.

Well, I must go now and get ready for work.


Say What You Gotta Say

*Yawns* [04 Aug 2004|11:50am]
[ mood | tired ]

Well, I'm kind of tired right now. Just woke up a little while ago and had to go drop my car off to get fixed... again... The power steering pressure hose started leaking last week and they found a leak in that hose and I can hardly turn my steering wheel. I was supposed to have one of my managers do it, cos he'll usually fix my car cheap, but he couldn't get to something connected to something else so he couldn't fix it. I've been without a car since LAST Wednesday and it is driving me crazy. Not being able to go when I want to go. Not being able to come home when I want to come home. But FINALLY, it shall be fixed today. And I will have a car again. WooHoo!

Anyways, this weekend Jon's parents are going to the beach again, so I guess we will be having a little get together. Sounds fun. And then the NEXT Friday, it's karaoke time once more. I've only been back at work for two days now (today being the third, but I haven't gone in yet) and I already feel smothered by the place.

I watched 'Titanic' again last night. It's been probably two years since I've seen it last. I attempted once before but I fell asleep. That movie never gets old. I remember seeing it in the theater like three times. Back in good ole '97. Wow, that seems like such a long time ago. I was only 14 when that movie came out. Seven years ago. But yeah, it was cool watching it again.

Well, I'm off to get ready for my glorious job now.

Say What You Gotta Say

My vacation is almost over... [01 Aug 2004|02:57am]
[ mood | depressed ]

Well this week I have been on vacation. The main reason of a vacation is to escape the stress and just relax, right? Well since I've been gone, my job has given me the most stress I've ever had there. The people I have worked with for so long, I feel, have betrayed me in a way I could never forget. May sound dramatic, but the things that have been said and done this week have really hurt me. I didn't think I would care so much about a place I hate, but it seriously hurt the way I've been treated while I'm not even there.

On a lighter note, I DID have a great time at Hard Times last night. It was karaoke night and this is the first time Jessy's gone with us, actually being old enough to get in. We all went once before, but then they made it to where you had to be 21 to get in, and figures everyone turned 21 before her... LOL... but we had a good time last night. It was a good ending to a horrible week. I had a FEW drinks. And I actually danced which I don't usually do. I feel kinda awkward when I dance. And I sang a couple of karaoke songs. I was trying to get Jessy to sing one, but she wouldn't do it. Anyhow, while we were dancing, her hand accidentally hit me in the eye, not hard by any means, just kinda brushed it... BUT, my contact popped out from it. It was kinda funny actually. We were just standing there laughing about it. Then I take her home and we're on her front porch smoking a ciggarette and I grab the ashtray that's above me and all this gross ciggarrette water pours on my pants. It smelled SO bad. It seriously smelled like a toilet that has had bodily wastes in it for days without being flushed. So we go in and Jessy starts spraying Febreeze on me, and she doesn't stop... So I naturally had to take the bottle and spray her back. Hahaha... Good times. Can't wait for the Friday two weeks from now.:)

1 Said What They Had To Say||Say What You Gotta Say

Haven't really been updating lately... [21 Jul 2004|12:17pm]
[ mood | tired ]

Well first of all, my nephew Mr. Buttons (he's my friend Pam's dog) got runover in the road the other day. Believe it or not, he lived through it, but he broke his hip and the vet says he might not walk the same even after the surgery. I've felt pretty bad for Pam, because if you know her, you'd KNOW that Mister is seriously like her son. So she's been very upset the past couple of days.

Well, I haven't been online lately. I've had to work a lot because of everyone taking their vacations. I was off Sunday, and Jessy, Pam, and I went to Crabtree Valley Mall in Raleigh, NC. I bought some clothes and even MORE movies, like I needed more... I have over 160 DVDs and I don't know how many VHS movies I have.

I'm not off again until Monday. I start MY vacation which I'm really not going to be doing anything that week. Except for Tuesday. Me and some friends are going to go to Kings Dominion. I haven't been since high school so that will be fun. I love roller coasters as it is. (And that's weird because heights petrify me.)

Well, I'm going to go for now. Expect a lot of updates next week as I will be home most of the week.

Spider-Man 2!!!! [01 Jul 2004|01:42pm]
[ mood | happy ]

Well me and Jessy went to see Spider-Man 2 as planned yesterday and it was SOOO good! Yes, it was even better than the first one which I thought was an amazing movie itself.

Yesterday was Jessy's birthday so me, Jessy, and Vickie went to Colonial Heights and ate at Applebees where me and Jess both ordered a Mud Slide. Awesome drink, by the way, in case you've never had one. Then all three of us went to the mall to see 'Spider-Man 2'. I cannot express how much I liked that movie.

Say What You Gotta Say

This week has been *UGH!!!* [30 Jun 2004|02:13am]
[ mood | cranky ]

Ok... this week has been pretty busy. WORK WORK WORK.

They've been cutting help like hell and I'm getting really sick of it. I don't mind working and I don't mind working hard, but I don't think it's fair to place all of that on ONE person!

Anyhow, today is Jessy's birthday!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESSY!!!! I'm going to the mall REALLY early today because I'm going to get her birthday present. :) I'm going in like 6 hours... *EEsh* Then me and her are going to see Spider-Man 2 tomorrow night. Can't wait to see that.

By the way, 'Cold Mountain' is a GREAT movie. I finally got to watch it last night. There was a nude scene in it which I wasn't expecting. I didn't think Nicole Kidman would do nude scenes and then I thought 'Eyes Wide Shut', which I have never seen, but have definetly heard all about.

Anyways, I'm gonna go cos I gotta get up in like 5 hours so later.

Say What You Gotta Say

:-D [21 Jun 2004|01:23pm]
[ mood | happy ]

The month of June has been SO much better than the month of May. First off, the stop sign ticket I got in May, it was dismissed today in court!!!

Second of all, me and Jonathan usually go to karaoke at Hard Times on Friday nights, right? It's usually every OTHER Friday. But in May they didn't have karaoke, so this month they did the two weeks of karaoke in a row. So last week we went and sang karaoke and what not. Well this past Friday, we both went along with Stacie and Rusty, and it was the karaoke contest. I got first place!!! I got this little trophy and a little bit of money, which I used to pay for my drinks.

Also, duh! 'Spider-Man 2' comes out in a week and a half! How great is that! (Definitely the most anticipated movie of the year for me). And that same day (June 30th) is Jessy's 21st birthday, so we're going to go see the movie and I think eat at Los Cocos(?) or somewhere.

Anyhow, I went to Jessy's last night and we watched 'Secret Window' starring Johnny Depp. It's based on a Stephen King story. Can't say that it was one of the best of Stephen King's movies, but it was pretty good.

Goodbye for now!

It's been awhile, since I could... [15 Jun 2004|01:02pm]
[ mood | groggy ]

...get online long enough to update my journal. It's been a busy couple of weeks with my two jobs and stuff. I did have the past two days off from both places. Sunday, me and my friends had a cookout at the lake and we were there for awhile and that was pretty fun. Yesterday, I went to Petersburg/Colonial Heights/Richmond yesterday with Vickie and then I got home around 3:00. I then watched 'The Little Mermaid' with my little brothers, and then we all watched 'Little Shop of Horrors'. We started on 'Chicago', but i think I was the only one really enjoying it... hahaha. Last night I went to Jonathan's house and Stacie was there and we played a card game. I ended up falling asleep and getting home around 8:30 this morning. *eeks* Then when I got home, I went right back to bed. And believe it or not, I'm STILL tired.
Friday was pretty fun too. Me and Jonathan went to Hard Times for karaoke. They didn't have karaoke at all in May and that was a bummer. I sang Fuel 'Hemmorrhage in My Hands' and matchbox 20 'Push'.
Anyways, I have to start getting ready for work now, so until next time.

Today has been much better:) [25 May 2004|06:11pm]
This morning, me and Vickie went to the mall in Colonial Heights. Had a GREAT time!!! I bought some really cool stuff!

*Show: A Night in the Life of matchbox twenty (DVD)
*Lord of the Rings: Return of the King Fullscreen (DVD)
*Avril Lavigne: Under My Skin (CD)
*Pulp Fiction: Music from the Motion Picture Collector's Edition (CD)
*Lord of the Rings: Gollum Action Figure (Toy... :-\ He TALKS THOUGH!!!)
*A green vintage tee shirt from American Eagle
*A white/brown striped button down shirt from Aeropostale

And I think that is it. And tonight, me, Jessy, Tanya, and Joe are going to see 'Troy'. FINALLY, the time has come. I've been talking about wanting to see it ALL week and I finally get to go see it.

Well, the matchbox twenty DVD is awesome. I've only watched performances of SOME of the songs because I've had too much to do today to watch the whole thing. Avril Lavigne's new album is way better than her last, and for the most part, I liked her last cd. This one seems more rock-ish instead of punk though. And that's what I like about it. Not a huge punk fan at all. But this cd... it kinda reminds me more of Alanis Morissette than her previous album. And I really like Alanis Morissette. (All Canadians RULE!!! I have a thing about Canadians because I really like the fact they say 'eh', eh?)

'Lord of the Rings' of course I have already seen. If I hadn't already bought the previous two, I probably would wait to see if they release a three pack of the special editions, but I just have the regular ones.

Anyhow, I'm going to get ready for the movies. So peace out and goodnight.

May 2004 OFFICIALLY BLOWS [25 May 2004|02:28am]
[ mood | pissed off ]

Ok, so today was starting a little bit better. I finally got my Tabitha's Secret cd in the mail today (it's 3 members of matchbox twenty before they were matchbox twenty...) Work kinda sucked.
And then...


I get off work and get my SECOND ticket this month! I really hate cops at this point. This one luckily wasn't speeding and I'm going to try to get it dismissed because I DID stop at the stop sign. Stupid cop. My dad is going to FREAK when he sees my insurance.

Well I'm going to go because me and Vickie are going to the mall bright and early. So until tommorrow...

Say What You Gotta Say

Hello again... [24 May 2004|02:08am]
[ mood | undecided ]

Well, the past couple of days have been a bummer. First off, I didn't get to see 'Troy' as planned. I couldn't find anyone to go because everyone ditched me. So I went with Jonathan to some karaoke bar over an hour away and it kinda sucked, but oh well. After that, we went to Huddle House and that was actually more fun than the karaoke bar. So overall, the day wasn't bad. It just wasn't super-fantastic either.

Yesterday on the other hand was a HORRIBLE day. Ok. Me and my mom were going to go see some of my family in Lychburg this coming weekend. We both took off from work to go. And mom tells me that my cousin T.J. is going into the Marines so she wanted to go before he left. I haven't seen some of my family there in YEARS. Well, I get to work yesterday and my boss proceeds to tell me that this weekend is HER vacation. AND Betty went on vacation this weekend too. So three of us can't be off at the same time (because we all work in the office) and it's Memorial Day weekend. So guess what that means. I DON'T GET TO GO. I was so mad. And then Amanda was getting really shitty about the whole thing so I just had a REALLY bad day yesterday.

Today wasn't a really bad day, but it wasn't really good. I had to work because Amanda and Tanya went to Kings Dominion. So I was stuck working. I'm glad THEIR plans at least work out. Sorry about the sarcasm, but this whole month in general hasn't been all wonderful at all. I'm really looking forward to June, thinking it HAS to be better than May has been.

After I got off work tonight, me and Vickie went to Denny's for awhile. There were these really bitchy ladies behind us who kept cutting us evil glares. Then after that, we rode around for about an hour just listening to music and talking. Now I am at home and about to go to bed.

So goodbye until hopefully tommorrow.

[ mood | happy ]

Well as of right now, today has been a pretty good day. First off, I got on Columbia House and pre-ordered 'The Butterfly Effect' AND ordered 'Stand By Me' and 'Little Shop of Horrors'.

THEN I went to Movie Gallery and talked to the manager and she said she was going to call me next week for training. So goodie! I'll have a second job that pays AND free rentals! I'm a huge movie buff in case you couldn't tell. I have tons of dvds and stuff, some of which I have still failed to watch. LOL I bought them in the days when I actually had money! Now most of the time, I'm flat broke.

E.G. I have been working at Winn Dixie for over five years (it'll be six this June) and I have always had enough money to eat. WELL, yesterday I was SOOOO broke I BROUGHT my lunch! I have never brought my lunch in the six years I have worked there. Kinda sad, eh? At this moment, I have less than ten dollars to my name, and I don't get paid again until Tuesday. Fortunately, my dad is going to loan me about $15.00 so I can go see 'Troy' tonight. Looks like a pretty good movie. It's like a movie version of 'The Odyssey' and I could never understand the actual book because it's written so weird. But I figured in movie form, it'll hopefully be easier to comprehend what the hell is going on. Of course that is not always the case. Take the 90's version of 'Romeo and Juliet'. I HATE THAT MOVIE. So stupid... It's like they talk about swords and knives the whole movie and they pull out a .45 pistol or something and I'm thinking "Can they not see those are not daggers?!?!?!?!?!?! Daggers are sharp and they cut and etc.... But those SHOOT and make a loud bang noise when used and it is CLEARLY not a dagger..." Yes, yes. I understand the point behind it. But in my opinion, if they wanted to do a modern re-telling of the story, they should have made the language more modern too. Do you actually hear people say "Where for art tho?" in this day and age? If I heard some one say that, and actually meant to say that, I would laugh at the sheer stupidity of it all.

I don't understand why I am talking about that movie so much. It seems like so far my journal has become a movie log. HAHAHAHA. I really need to do more things than I do. My friends will ask me "What are you doing tonight?" and I say "Why don't we go to (someone's name here)'s house and watch (a movie title here)..." and I usually pick the movies, which I like. A lot of my friends don't have very good taste in movies. Overall, I think Jessy has impecable taste in movies, just like I do. Jon... sometimes... Jonathan... he's seen a lot of movies and quite a few of movies he says are good aren't that great, but usually when he tells me a movie is bad, it usually is. But overall, he has pretty good taste in movies. Amanda... Love ya Amanda but you like some SUCKY movies. Pam... she has very good taste as well does Vickie. (SWOAPY!!!!:-D)

I'm going to go for right now. I'm gonna go get my dad's money.... lol...

WHAT AN EXCITING DAY!!!! [21 May 2004|02:54am]
[ mood | sleepy ]


My day didn't even really start until this afternoon around 12:00 and the only reason I woke up then is because my friend Timmy called. So I went to his house and hung out for awhile until around 1:30 when I had to run home and get ready for work.

But when I got home, I found out my cat Vivian had kittens... Vivian's mom Miss Kitty just had kittens recently also so now we have seven kittens:) Of course we have to get rid of most of them but y'know... KITTENS!!!

But anyways, I went to work around 2:30 and got off at 11:30. Then I went to Vickie's house where we watched 'Stand By Me' again because Amanda came with me and wanted to watch it. The movie seems sadder every time I watch it. But it's one of my all time favorite movies ever. Weird to think it was out when I was only three years old. Not many of the stars are still around. Wil Wheaton (Gordie) has been in movies I've never heard of. Corey Feldom (Teddy) fell off the face of the planet. River Phoenix (Chris) of course died, which is so much a child actor cliche. It's pretty sad though. From what I've seen him in, he was a pretty good actor. I watched a show on VH1 recently about child actors and their problems are just so astronomical. A lot of them were screwed out of money, some even by their parents, which I think is horrible. I'm surprised the Olsen twins haven't gone off the deep end yet. They were practically NEWBORNS when they started their careers. Back to the subject. Of course Keifer Sutherland is pretty popular. Jerry O'Connell (Vern)? I wouldn't say he's going down in history as a great actor, but he has been in a few things here and there. I think Richard Dreyfuss was Gordie as an adult and everyone knows who he is. Oh yeah. John Cusack has some appearances as Gordie's older brother Dennis. If you haven't seen it, you need to.

Well I'm off to bed.
Maybe I'll actually do something different tomorrow so I'll have something else to write about.

Say What You Gotta Say

If you're in need, won't you stand... stand by me... [20 May 2004|03:16am]
[ mood | tired ]

Yeah ok... I just watched the movie tonight with my friend Vickie so the song is stuck in my head. Oh but what a great movie it is. I grew up watching 'Stand By Me' and I can still honestly say it is a favorite of mine.

Anyhow, after we watched that, we watched a movie called 'Love Actually' which is by the people who did 'Bridget Jones' Diary' (which was an excellent movie...). 'Love Actually' was pretty good. I liked the fact that it didn't ALL end completely happily.

"I feel it in my fingers
I feel it in my toes
Christmas is all around me
And so the feeling grows

It’s written in the wind
It’s everywhere I go,
So if you really love christmas
Come on and let it snow"
--Billy Mack 'Christmas is All Around' from 'Love Actually'

Back to 'Stand By Me'... Watching it again has just made me realize how great of a movie it truly is. It's very depressing though. If you're looking for a cheery feel good movie, this would not be it. In case you didn't know, it's based on Stephen King's short story 'The Body'. And I'm a fan of Stephen King works anyways (usually... his newer stuff? not as great...) But I like 'Stand By Me' because there is no evil monster. I couldn't explain the movie to you... I would suggest you watch it though.

Well, it's 3:22 in the morning so I'm going to bed now. G'nite.:)

Say What You Gotta Say

This... [19 May 2004|04:19pm]
[ mood | relaxed ]

is my first entry. I've had this livejournal account apparently since December of 2003 and I even had an entry which I have deleted because I really don't remember posting it. My intentions of coming on livejournal at all was to fix a friends' livejournal which I can't figure out how to do...

Well, I just got home from the theater. Me and my friends Pam and Jonathan went to see 'Shrek 2'. I also took my little brothers Dillon and Kendall and Jonathan brought his brothers and sister. Pam brought her mom... lol... she wanted to take her little cousin so she wouldn't feel left out of the whole 'kid' thing. Anyhow, the movie was really good. I loved the first one and I'm usually a fan of Mike Meyers' movies in general.

In a few minutes, I'm going to chill for a while with a friend who came home from college. In the meantime, I'm hoping the manager at Movie Gallery will give me a call because I'm trying to get a second job this summer. I could really use the money for my car, my speeding ticket, clothes would be nice, maybe a trip to Myrtle Beach or somewhere. I don't really know, but as it appears now, it looks like this summer could be really dull. All work and no play makes Alan a dull boy. Well unfortunately, it will probably be more work than anything this summer.

Well I'm gonna go for right now. I'm going to try to catch the 'Angel' series finale tonight. We'll see. I'd really like to see it, but who knows where I will be at that time.
