Sometimes I wonder why I'm in this thing.

I was given a second chance a while back, and I'm very glad I was.
But that second chance needs to exist in reality, not just theory.

I hate waking up next to you feeling like I've done something wrong.
Especially when I haven't.
Because then I can't even blame myself - I have to blame you.
Will you listen?

This whole fucking deal is just silly.

On a mildly related note, my room is now heated. Goodbye shitty mornings, hello shitty warm mornings.

My cellphone hasn't really been working properly since July, as most of you know.
It hasn't worked at all for over a month now.
This has been the cycle of events that has been happening for the past 5 months:
Call Rogers, they tell me it's my fault, tell me to call Motorola, I call motorola, they tell me they can't do anything, they tell me they'll call me back with more options, they don't, I call them back, they tell me they can't do anything.....rinse and repeat.
5 months.

My mom makes one phonecall today, to Rogers.

Apparently I'm getting a brand new phone in two days.

I'm happy as can be (as is everyone that's been frantically trying to call me)...

But I need to know...


This information is crucial to my survival on this planet filled with useless customer service representatives.

Albums that are amazing that most or all of you may disagree with:

Daughters - Hell Songs
Mastodon - Blood Mountain
Eve 6 - Horrorscope
Alexisonfire - Crisis
Snot - Get Some

Anyways, THE VEIL rocked the shit tonight. Our set was short, but fast, energetic, punishing, and anything else you can imagine the veil being at one of our shows.

Come see us on NOVEMBER 22 at the KATHEDRAL with Arise & Ruin, Deterrence, Memphis West, With Conviction, and a few others - you want more info? Let me know.

...but now I am fine, for Dog Fashion Disco isn't breaking up. Phew.

Oh, yeah, where I left off in my last post - Thursday morning. My mom left for New York that morning, and with my sister at my dad's, I woke up to my very own house for 6 days. Sweet. Had some friends over on Friday, work, bands practice, etc.

Gabriela's and my 1-year anniversary was this past Saturday!!!....holy wow, I can't believe it's been a year! And I'm still as happy as I could ever be. For she is amazing. :) She had to work all day and I was stuck home finishing projects, so I missed my family Thanksgiving deal, but I picked Gaby up from work, went to the spaghetti factory for dinner, I gave her some pressies (she liked them! horrah for not failing), and then we went back to my place to watch donnie darko (which she has now officially seen). Twas amazing!

Next day we went to her grandparents' house for Thanksgiving on Monday, spent most of the day together with her crazy-loud but awesome Italian family, and had a blast. Came home Monday, tired. Only just realizing the cleanup I was supposed to accomplish over the weekend.

Go me.

No big parties or anything, though I did manage to hit up a party with a bunch of my old high school friends on Saturday, fun times to say the least!!

P.S. Pelican + Daughters = absolutely fuckin' amazing.
Norma Jean + Between The Buried And Me + Fear Before + Misery Signals = epic. truly epic.

The past week has been one of the best in a long time, and I have only you to thank.

My amazing weekend, part 1 [Oct. 10th, 2006|03:18 am]

So yeah, I kind of flaked out on posting about all those things I said I was going to post about a couple of months ago. But I actually am...eventually.

For now, I am going to rant and rave about how amazing my weekend was.

To put things into perspective, my weekend started last Tuesday at 3 pm.

Gabriela and I had arranged a while back that since my birthday (Sept 12) was so chaotic (I spent the whole day in school and ended my day at the Mastodon show, which was awesome), we would set an alternate date for my 20th birthday. So we decided on October 3/4.
Monday night, I got an email from Gaby, with an attachment. SO I opened up the attachment, and found a GOLDEN TICKET (much like the ones from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, if anyone's seen it). It instructed me to bring it to Yorkdale on Tuesday at 330.
So I went and waited, and met up with Gabbeh :). She took me bowling (we have so much fun bowling), and then we went and wandered around Yorkdale for a while, and then went and had dinner at the Rainforest Cafe (so delicious, omfgzzz).
So we're supposed to spend the night at my house, and Gaby tells me that she has one more present for me before we go back to my house. Here's the catch: I have to be blindfolded. We arrange that (since I get uncomfortable not knowing where I am - the thought of being blind frightens me) I only have to close my eyes after we get off the bus. So we get off at Dufferin and Queen, and Gaby blindly walks me a couple of blocks and we go through a set of doors. We start to walk up some stairs, and I hear a voice ask Gaby, "Are you two staying in the hotel?"
So, as you might have guessed, Gaby had rented a room at the DRAKE HOTEL for the night! Oh man, it was absolutely incredible. Upon our arrival, I find that the bed has a bunch of presents on it, which Gaby had dropped off earlier :).
So I start to open my presents, and they included:
-The original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV series (volume 5) on DVD
-A basket full of chocolate and candy
-A Nintendo 64
-An awesome rabbit with a hole in its mouth for attaching either a moustache, banana, ice cream cone, or bubblegum bubble
-A teddy bear version of Jules from Pulp Fiction (fuckin' right)
-The Coheed and Cambria graphic novel based on Good Apollo
-A whole bunch of really old, really cool Nintendo trading cards
-An awesome donut keychain thing (it's fuzzy!)
-A ticket to the Pelican/Daughters show this week
and a bunch of other cool things. Man, this girl is absolutely amazing.
We spent the night there, playing video games, watching the Super Mario Brothers Super Show (anyone? oh man, SO good) and just being fun. It was unforgettable.

Next day, woke up, had some brekkie (best peanut butter-and-jam sammich EVER!!!!), piled out of the Drake and headed downtown. Wandered around City Hall (it was kind of raining, which wasn't fun), then went down to the Steam Whistle brewery for a tour (which, awesomely, included free beer!!). Everything in there is really cool! Plus by the end of the tour, I was a bit buzzed from all the free beer (not bad for 2:30 on a wednesday afternoon).
We then went to an arcade for a while, then went and saw Jackass 2 (oh man, i practically pissed myself, so funny), went back to the arcade, hung out and were couple-like some more, then went to eat dinner at this cool restaurant called the Sultan's Tent down on Front St. Really fancy place (I felt SO underdressed, but it was cool), great food (four full courses, I could barely finish them) - it was Moroccan-based cuisine, and the highlight for me was a dish (i think it was called Maftoul) which consisted of these sticks of pastry filled with a mix of spicy beef, cashews and raisins, drizzled with a really tasty sauce. By far, one of the best foods ever.

The restaurant had a bellydancer too!! Oh man, all the stops had been pulled out, indeed.

SO after all of that, I went home. By this time it was 3 am, Wednesday night/Thursday morning.

And there's more....but you'll get to read all of that after I finish my instrumentation report. SIGNING OFF!!

So it seems that I've turned 20 today.

That's right kids.

Somehow I've managed to persevere through two full decades without succumbing to leprosy or other such ailments of the flesh.

So happy birthday to me.

Any ideas for what to do?
As it stands, I have to spend 8 hours in class, and I'm thinking I'll follow that up with a little Mastodon, and a hint of Converge. The Bronx can come too, I'm sure we'll have a grand ole time.

If I REALLY wanted to, I could make this the longest post anyone has ever seen.

This is because I've neglected to even mention, let alone describe, all the cool shit I've done over the past few months.

So this post, as useless as it seems, will serve as a reminder to myself (and to anyone wanting to badger me for information) that I need to post about the following:

-my bike trip to penatanguishene
-not received's upward progress
-getting back into gcm
-family poker night
-the reformation of my metal/grind outfit, THE VEIL

and I know I've forgotten a hell of a lot.

But it is all pending, and you will enjoy it upon its arrival.

+ I get to play house with Gaby for the weekend, just her and I
+ Not Received seems to be getting tighter and tighter every show. And at every show we're a little less "not received"
+ Extra shifts this week = extra money
+ I get saturday morning off work, which means I don't have to work this weekend at all
+ Not Received is recording soon
+ Converge are on Sounds of The Underground :):):)

+ Mindless Self Indulgence is coming back

- I've temporarily failed out of school, with a C+ average. Lame. It is honestly only because two of my three main profs don't like me.
EVIDENCE: In all of my courses this year, we have had a total of 8 midterms and 9 exams. I'm one of only literally 20 people (out of 140 in my year) who have passed every single bleedin' midterm and final. If you fail a final, you have to repeat the course next year, thus setting you a year behind.

SO anyways, I've got a few extra months off. In January, GCM won't know what hit 'em.
