so, we're off to the beach...nothing but craziness......
so, this is some crazy shit...i went out tonight with some friends from here. we went to levels, the only bar/club in elizabeth city. so, my friend amy, who is also the ex wife of my ex-finance (i'll expalin that another time) gets me out on the dance floor to dance. i turn around, and who do i see?? gare "the spyder" stevens, dj'ing in elizabeth city. how weird is that? so, being half buzzed, i went over to him to say hey. he knew me from somewhere, just couldn't place me. i explained to him that i'm friends with nicole and tommy, and the next thing i know, he's announcing me to the whole bar as he puts me up on top of the speaker to dance. it was pretty cool, i have to admit. do, thats my story of the night, not including the craziness of all the family being here. i go upstairs a 3:15 to go to sleep, (it feels about 90 degrees upstairs where i have to sleep with 5 other people), and i have no air mattress to sleep on and no blanket. they put a towel on my pillow...what the hell? so, i'm sleeping on the couch. i also told gare that if he didnt have a place to stay, or needed help finding his way back to the highway (he doesnt have a room to stay in here) to call me. crazy shit...

the "fun" has begun

the rest of the crowd pulled in this morning; my sister (paula) her husband (eric, whom i'm just not sure if i like yet), paula's sister (becky) and her bf (Lou) and 3 more kids...christin, ashley and erica. Now, paula and eric are going to go to sleep cause they were up the whole night driving and the kids are going swimming. all i care about at this point is not being annoyed by kids and getting sun. christin is the one kid that annoys the crap out of you, and shes pretty much the reason i'm not fond of kids. seriously....shes the little tomboy that has to hang all over you and get right in your face, and not listen to you and hang around all over you...she's the one kid in the grocery store we all hate. that pretty much sums that up. so, i almost packed my bags and came home last night. mom and i came real close to going at it, but dad broke it up. but, she in a round about way said i was an alcoholic. over a vodke and water. she said i shouldnt be drinking in front of jessi, then she turned around and had wine at dinner and gave jessi a small glass. now, com all know me very well...does that sound right? i was so bags are still packed. but, i just moved them upstairs cause I ALWAYS LOSE MY BEDROOM to "guests". haha...GUESTS!! my sister is one of my role models though....she is the person I NEVER WANT TO BE LIKE!!! so, we all watched napoleon dynamite last night. my dad said i was never allowed to pick the movie ever again. haha...idiots...gosh.

emerald city

just fyi we have a bikini contest tonight we are kicking stuff off at around 9 or 930 depends on when i get there......hope everyone's week is going good...been kindda busy over my way trying to get stuff done around the house making room for the addition of another person....well anyway the smart people in the city are acting up again...damn that big thing is the sky is annoying not use to being up at 5 in the morning no wonder tommy's blood looks like coffee......j/k gotta go lee


lets just talk about what a happenin place this is...i mean, a scooby goes on vacation and checks the blog to see whats up, and everyone just so busy that they cant post anything exciting? so, how bout i tell ya about my trip so far...sound good? OK!!! i got here tuesday night...nothing exciting, unless you can consider milk and cookies exciting...(oreo's tommy....mmmmmm...) got up wednesday morning, dad took my car to get it inspected. (but see, out here in the country ya'll, we here couuntry folk dont require that there eemissions testing muumble juumble) so by golly i couldnt get my car inspected. so, my neice, jessi, and i rode to town in daddys toy (2 seater red convertible). we went to grandmas and to the big ol' elizabeth city mall...YIPPEE!!! then, we came home and floated around in the big inground swimming pool that my parents have. (no crawfish this year, and the fish really dont bother you too bad). cant keep the dogs out of the water though. even zoe came in and played around. She really likes to be splashed. Then, we went to see charlie and the chocolate factory wednesday night. I dont even want to talk about that one. got up thursday morning, planning on leaving for busch gardens at 7. the reason i wanted to shoot for 7 is cause i knew that there was no way in hell we would leave before 9. so, dad said 7 was too early, 8 was better, it was 9:30 before we left. got to the park at 11:30'ish. traffic was hell, complete standstill in one area. thought it was an accident, but clue what freaking stopped traffic for 20 mins. ok, anyways, we got to the park and had a blast. the new ride, dark castle was so awesome. after a day of riding, we saw Irish Thunder at 8. it was really cool watching them dance like that. then, at 9 we watched imagnique. words cant even describe how awesome it was. it was a small scale cirque de solie, kinda. then, we left the park at 10:30. I got to hear snoring from mom and jessi as i drove home, fighting heavy eyes. it was so hot yesterday though...i was constantly dripping sweat...ew, i had to shower before i could even go to bed. so, i dont know what today has in store. Jessi wants to go to the beach, but my dad has pretty much nipped that in the bud. "why would she want to go to the beach? she's going sunday and staying for a week (YEAH, BUT I'M NOT). it's too expensive. if you go, you better pack a cooler, i'm not giving you money. and, think about the gas it takes" oh well...maybe i'll wash my car. how do i tell a 13 yr old we cant go to the beach? if she turns around and tells my dad she wants to go, he'll tell me to take her. he cant say no to his grand-youngin.'s not 9:10, and i'm bored...what a day... hope everything is going good for everyone at home. Any big plans for the weekend? my sister and the rest of her family is coming tomorrow. and, let me just say, my sister's sister is coming, and bringing her boyfriend. I'm so pissed about that!!! i really dont like my sisters sister that much, and to have to deal with another yankee boy on top of that? I really have a hard time dealing with this because, i'm already losing my bedroom to my sister and her husband. i'll be DAMNED if becky & her boyfriend sleep int he same room. i wouldnt even think of bringing a boyfriend home for a weekend and consider sleeping in the same room under my parents roof. I brought a guy home one weekend, and my dad put bubble wrap outside of my door. and yes, i did step on it trying to sneak into his room. and then, on top of that, i'm going to the beach with them sunday night. it's a 4 bedroom house, and i dont even get a room. i have to sleep on the freaking couch. i understand i'm not going to be there but for a night, but, my mom has paid for this house, and becky & her boyfriend are sharing a room. i know this doesnt seem like a big deal to everyone, but they are 17!!! my sister and i were NOT raised this way. pisses my shit off...anyways, guess i'm not ending on a happy note...just needed to vent the drama!!! Love ya'll!!!

Just in case you didn't know. . . .

I'd love to say that I found this on my own, a little bartender knowledge and all, but this is an email my mom had sent me. I felt it needed to be shared with everyone. "Sometimes when I reflect back on all the wine I drink I feel shamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the vineyards and all of their hopes and dreams If I didn't drink this wine, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this wine and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver." ~ Jack Handy WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may leave you wondering what the hell happened to your bra and panties. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day. " ~Frank Sinatra WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may create the illusion that you are tougher, smarter, faster and better looking than most people. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading." ~ Henny Youngman WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may lead you to think people are laughing WITH you. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not." ~ Stephen Wright WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may cause you to think you can sing. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven. So, let's all get drunk and go to heaven!" ~ Brian O'Rourke WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may cause pregnancy. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." ~ Benjamin Franklin WARNING: The consumption of alcohol is a major factor in dancing like a retard. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza." ~ Dave Barry WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may cause you to tell your friends over and over again that you love them. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ To some it's a six-pack, to me it's a Support Group. Salvation in a can! ~ Dave Howell WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may make you think you can logically converse with members of the opposite s e x without spitting. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ And saving the best for last, as explained by Cliff Clavin, of Cheers. One afternoon at Cheers, Cliff Clavin was explaining the Buffalo Theory to his buddy Norm. Here's how it went: "Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may make you think you are whispering when you are not. Now share this knowledge with those that don't know! :)

The Welfare Office

A guy walks into the local welfare office, marches straight up to the counter and says, "Hi . . . You know, I just HATE drawing welfare. I'd really rather have a job". The social worker behind the counter says, "Your timing is Excellent. We just got a job opening from a very wealthy old man who wants a chauffeur/bodyguard for his nymphomaniac daughter. You'll have to drive around in his Mercedes, but he'll supply all of your clothes. Because of the long hours, meals will be provided. You'll be expected to escort her on her overseas holiday trips. You'll have a two-bedroom apartment above the garage. The starting salary is $200,000 a year". The guy says, "You're bullshitting me!" The social worker says, "Yeah, well, you started it."

No SH*T!

Believe it or not A woman pregnant with triplets was walking down the street when a masked robber ran out of a bank and shot her three times in the stomach. Luckily the babies were OK. The surgeon decided to leave the bullets in because it was too risky to operate. She gave birth to two healthy daughters and a healthy son. All was fine for 16 years, and then one daughter walked into the room in tears. "What's wrong?" asked the mother. "I was taking a tinkle and this bullet came out" replied the daughter. The mother told her it was okay and explained what happened 16 years ago. About a week later the second daughter walked into the room in tears. "Mom, I was taking a tinkle and this bullet came out." Again the mother told her not to worry and explained what happened 16 years ago. A week later her son walked into the room in tears. "It's okay" said the Mom, "I know what happened! , you were taking a tinkle and a bullet came out." "No," said the boy, "I was playing with myself and I shot the dog..."
