Soapbox

YouTube Google Video.. bla bla bla.. here is the newest member to the internet video sharing waste your time club.

 

The thing I like about Soapbox is .. pure unadulterated image quality.  It's the best.. and therefore.. I think I will use if for posting my stuff.. cuz im lazy and don't want to mess with the hundreds of videos that I have taken.

 


And yeah it is Microsoft.. but hey.. the best is the best.  And we all know Microsoft is not the best in everything.. lol

winter sucks part 2

Utah weather is always weird.  I really enjoyed the summer weather in november we had for a few days.. made working on my truck a whole lot easier.  Anyway its back to cold and today was the first day I had to scrape my windows.. here is a pic.. yuck.. im not excited for a whole winter of this..

 

Walking to work

so.. I got a flat tire the other day.  And it was a nightmare to get fixed.. cuz I didn't have any tools.  Now I do.. and instead of taking 3 days to get the job done.. next time it will only take 5 min.  that's all I want to say about that.

so I walked to work a few days and It was nice because the weather was freakishly nice and warm.  I was able to take a couple pics on my journey.

 

this first one is interesting because it barley shows the nasty smog or what ever it was those few days.  there on the mountain you can see it the best.  Nasty stuff.  Not sure if this was due to all the fires in California or if its inversion or if its just pollution.. blech..

 

This I just thought was cool.. I'm surprised at how many trains go by on these tracks.  What is being transported on these so much?  From where to where?  Who knows.. trains are cool.

Catching up finally...

***Posted the pics from the car wreck***

So the other day I witnessed a massive 5-7 car accident on state street right in front of Barbara's apartment parking lot. I was changing her oil and filter when all of a sudden I start hearing breaking.. I look over and see that a truck is just sitting there in the middle lane.. and then people just started slamming into each other. It was a scary sight. Everyone was ok.. I ran down there to see if I could help.. the girl in the red car was pretty banged up.. legs will be bruised for a long time.. but I think she will be ok.. ugh.. it was bad.

So here’s the thing that really bugged me about that day. It was a bad accident yes, but why do people come in flocks to gawk at stuff like this.. I kid you not there were like a hundred people there before long just standing there watching. Van full after van full of people just started showing up in Barbara's parking lot.. and people just standing around.. Judas..








Anyway.. So going back to Oct 30th now.. Me and Barbara's day-o-fun celebration of our dating for a year. (technically Nov. 2nd is the year mark) So we had the best food we ever had when we went to Denny’s that morning. And they gave us free cheesecake because it was slow service or something.. it was nice. Anyway.. Barbara got us tickets (and sweet on the floor great seats tickets I might add) to the blue man group concert in Salt Lake. So we went down early and went to the gateway mall and shopped around and had fun.. don't think we bought anything besides when we went into the chocolate factory though.. lol Then for dinner we went to the California Pizza Kitchen. It was good food but I don’t think either of us were that hungry from the chocolate and the food from Denny’s.. but I was able to impress Barbara with my big mouth and how I can eat a pizza slice in 3 bites.. lol Then we scampered off to the delta center for the concert. We were surprised at how good it was. Tracy Bonham or T-bo as she likes to be called.. <-- weird.. was really good.. she came on stage first and was rocking out with her violin and guitar and her mad vocals. Also it was cool cuz they had this scrolling marquee the whole time that was saying all this funny stuff. It was very entertaining.. lots of new stuff that wasn’t in other shows. Me and Barbara had a great time.

(sadly I didn’t bring my camera because I was under the impression that they would take it away from me If I tried to bring it in.. so I have no pictures from that night)

So we have been dating for over a year now.. and its great. I've never dated anyone longer than a few short months so this is like a miracle for me. I just want to say Barbara I think you are incredible and beautiful! Thanks for dating me! And for cleaning my house so I’ll pass my cleaning checks! You are amazing! I can’t believe its been a year already.. I guess it seems like it hasn’t been that long but at the same time it feels like we have been together forever. Here’s to us sweetie!

In other news, I’ve decided to sell some things and try a new approach to finances.. lol

  • I'm selling my guitar. (as Davy said "this is a sad day for rock and roll" its true but im just being honest with myself. I know exactly what it would take to learn the guitar and I honestly know Im not up for it.. at least not right now and probably not ever. *tear*)
  • Im getting rid of my gun as well. (I love my gun but I think I need the money and I actually want something different. I've had my fun and now its time for some new fun.. well.. when I get money to build or buy. I want something like this..

It's an old Shenandoah County Virginia replica of a black powder mussel loader from the 1800's.

Well I guess that's it for now.. check back later for those pictures!!!

0 - 1 BYU

Today was going along smoothly and rather fantastically until someone popped into my office saying I was needed to take back a video my boss rented to the LRC at BYU. I thought to myself

"sure. I can just swing down to BYU, drop it off then get me a jaydog while I‘m there and be back in time for tea."


What actually happened was this..

Parking = nightmare. Finally I found a spot but the 2 bone heads on either side of it had parked over the line and all jacked.. so.. after careful planning I backed into it and was off, already wishing I hadn't accepted what I as yet didn’t know was mission impossible.

Next was finding the right building.. then finding the actual entrance.. Judas.. would it kill someone to put up a few sign's to first tell you what building it is.. and then to put them near the entrance and not on the other side where all you can do is look at people through the window like a dufus wondering how the eff you get into the building..

Finally I was in the right building.. next obstacle.. getting to the right floor. I tried the elevator in what I guess is a lobby.. I walk over to where the buttons are and there are no up arrow's to push... ok.. so I stand there like an idiot... I know I’m supposed to get to the 4th floor.. the elevator just told me that I was on the 3rd floor.. so I walk away again feeling like an idiot.. I walk till I find some stairs... YES.. I hurry up to the 4th floor.

Again.. no signs telling me anything useful.. so blindly I venture in... nothing but rows and rows of books.. everyone is quiet and clicking away on their laptops.. the feeling that I really shouldn’t be here peaks. After much awkward searching (let me paint you a picture.. you walk down a hall or peak down a row of something only to see a dead-end or something and then quickly reverse.. all the while you know there are at least a handful of people watching your every move thinking "oh man.. look at that poor fool.. doesn’t know where he’s going in life.. ) I finally find a sign that says LRC and an arrow.. I quicken my pace in that direction.. I made it! I thankfully find the drop box quickly and get rid of the goods.. the deed is done.. now lets get a hotdog..

but wait.. your journey isn’t over.. now you have to find a way out of this stupid building..

Instantly I found myself utterly lost.. and pissed about it. I follow every exit sign I see only to be greeted with this message "Emergency Exit Only" "Alarm will sound upon opening of this door" I kid you not this happened more times than I want to admit! I’ve tried every floor.. only to be met with more and more failure. I’m angry at existence.. and now I have a burning need to pee. I am about to scream out "will someone tell me how the HELL to get out of this building!?!?!?!?" somehow I keep my cool and resist the urge to scream... what seems like forever (you know how it is when you gotta pee.. everything takes an eternity) I found the same stairs I used to get to the forsaken 4th floor.. I make my escape with a silent oath: “I’m never ever coming back to this awful place...”
