i will meet you at the mouth

Today I did a bunch of things that are high on my "I do not like, Sam I am" list. I washed my hand washables, I put the dishes away, and I went to the Millville Rescue Squad. I spent the greater part of my day dealing with the hand washing situation. There was a ridiculous amount of hand washables to be washed since I put it off for so long. Practically a trash bag full. Later, I cleaned up around the kitchen and if you ever lived with me, you'd know I just hate putting dishes away. I don't know why. I just hate it. I'd rather wash them than have to put them away. But I did it. If I hadn't, who would have? I'm trying to help out. Sometimes helping out requires me to do lots of things that I don't like. Which leads us to me going to the Millville Rescue Squad. And by myself at that. My brother was supposed to have already done this, but didn't, so the baton was handed down to me. It wasn't very difficult and I lucked out and didn't run into anybody at all, but I still didn't like doing it. My mother is just terribly lucky I like her. And damn, my dog is adorable.

hello, ive waited here for you


Killed some birds today with some stones. As in, while escaping the horribleness that is the Millville Airshow for the 3rd time this week, we were able to fill a little bit of Jamie's zoo void. The Cohanzick Zoo (aka the Bridgeton Zoo) may not be as big or awesome as the Philadelphia or Cape May zoo, and it may not have a reptile section, a small mammal center, or penguins, otters, and elephants, but it does have a white tiger, adorable monkeys, and lemurs that I could communicate with thanks to my knowledge of whine languages. Furthermore, I'm happy that now I have new, better memories to replace with the last memories I had of the Cohanzick Zoo. Last time I went, not only was it hot and my camera died, but I went with a total asshole. This time I only went with a partial ass. Vast improvement!

there's no logic so please believe me

I was so busy celebrating the birth of trouble that by the time I arrived home last night I was so full of headache, then shortly so full of codeine that somewhat shortly after, that I was very much asleep. But before I lose the day I want it to be known that 50% of my team turned 22! It was a pretty successful, yet stressful night. I got a yacht, gave back a yacht, broke up a team, lost the love of my life, lost a friend, got my love back (LINELL 4EVA), got my friend back, got the yacht back, and the team reunited. And OMG saw TJ! As someone once said, all's well that ends well! That about sums things up... TURTLE POWER!

one....two....three....fourfivesix

My mother had her surgical procedure this morning, and though she's in the hospital until sometime Thursday, everything went fine and she's okay. I went to bed at 10am this morning. I can't sleep in general so you can only imagine it's quite impossible for me to sleep when I'm worrying about something as important as my mother. But I think I'm allergic to the morning light because at about 7am, I got so congested and my nose was running horrendously and I couldn't stop sneezing with my eyes watering and itching and the works. Alas, I survived and so did my mother and all of that is a huge relief.

decided to check out early






I love Fiji Water.

I didn't really know why, but I think I have an idea now...

(maybe Fiji people will see this blog and send me free water!)

bless you where ever you are

I spent today with my mother and grandmother, but mostly my mother. We seem to spend a lot of Sundays together since it's just about her only true day off. Except, that won't be the case soon. On Tuesday my mother is going to have a medically necessary surgical procedure performed and she'll be out of work for something like 6 weeks. She's never had surgery before. I've never had surgery before. She's expressed being nervous about it, but I tend to not say how I feel. Instead I just randomly cry at no particularly moving occasion. Mysteriously something will strike worry and I'll have a little cry. But being in a family of doctors, I've got to trust the medical field, or at least try to. Unfortunately, I watch far too much Grey's Anatomy and House and there's always crazy terrible things happening during surgery and I'm so spooked! Ugh! I wish McDreamy and Dr. Burke were her surgeons!

heaven holds a place for those who pray

Lola (pictured guitar), who had a bit of a bad day yesterday with technical difficulties, got fixed today! I was concerned that the damage could possibly be quite serious, not to mention expensive, but it was neither! Music central fixed her up free of charge while I waited. Awesome guys. Later we went to Borders and I may possibly be taking back what was so rightfully mine! If the rough demo we provided is approved of by the dude in charge, I'm in like Flynn! HooHa! Also, we went to IHOP and I feel as though I got complimentary pancakes. No, really, I think I did.

what was that promise that you made?

I think maybe there IS a God. When I laid down for a nap at about 4pm this afternoon, it was gray and ugly; on the brink of rain. By the time I drug myself out of bed (fully alive and well contrary to my mother's worries), the sun was shining and nearly all signs of a rained out show were gone! And it was a pretty good night despite me being so tired. (I'm going to stop taking two Benadryl before going to bed, if I can help it.) But it was a good night all in all and I'm glad that when I woke up today, it wasn't Saturday like I wished last night. I would have missed out on a swell day and coming home to these two cute baby puppies!

i dont know, i guess he's clean

This is not what the sky looked like today. It is also not what the sky will look like tomorrow. I've been checking the weather again and again and again in hopes that miraculously the forecast will change, but... no dice. It can go right ahead and rain, rain, rain for the majority of the day tomorrow, but please God, make it stop raining before 6pm.

i promise you im doing the best i can

Despite the weather trying to ruin lives, all the necessary animals were seen (otters, penguins, & elephants) and a few others that you'd not expect to see (such as the one pictured). Point being, I spent my day at the Philadelphia Zoo. I saw and learned a lot. It twas grand. But, I still want to see the trucks they use to transport elephants. Why have I never seen an elephant on a flat bed truck going down the highway?!

this body's a temple of doom




I have no good commentary for this picture or this day. But this picture amuses me so I'm going to post it since nothing eventful or amazing really happened today.
Here's an idea, you guys write a caption for this photo.
or not.
whatever.
But I bet Ben Stiller would want you to "do it".

I'm not prepared for that

Instead of the usual nightmares I have, I could totally use more dreams about Patrick Dempsey. If there's some way I could work that out, I bet I'd rest a lot easier. Though, I might not ever get out of bed. Ever. Hm, that could be bad for my social life.

what kind of fuckery is this?!

Today was a pretty good day. Then I got terrible news. Within months of discovering REM covered "#9 Dream", I heard that Christina "Xtina" Aguilera covered "Mother". I realize that there will ultimately be a wave of horrible butcherings of Lennon music in the next few months as there's some sort of John Lennon Save Darfur album coming out. I'm not exactly sure of the title or much else about it, but I'm sure it's out there somewhere just waiting to ruin future days.
It's hard for me to explain why I get so upset about covers; particularly Lennon covers. But Jamie dubbed it the "Fiona Apple Syndrome"; it's the effect that comes over me when I hear a cover of John Lennon which results in me being unable to listen to the artist that did the cover for an extended period of time. Being named after Fiona Apple as this was the first time the syndrome effected me. But undoubtly not the last!
I'm still just shocked. I can't believe XTINA did a cover of MOTHER. Not that any other song would have been a better choice... fudge rockets.

lost a lot of fights but it taught me to lose okay

Listen homies, I'm sorry if anyone was terribly upset that I've been a little absent from the blogsphere, but the combination of being a little batty, highly lazy, a tad busy, and have a bedroom that is hellza hot and humid has made blogging a low priority on my "to-do" list. But you've been on my mind, dear bloggers, and I hope to find a way to fit some occasional blogging in here and there so nobody cries.

Moving on, today I spent the majority of my day in Cinnaminson, NJ doing some more recording. Don't be fooled by the accompanying photo, though. That was not taken today, it was taken on Sunday, actually. As you can imagine, we've been working hard to get this recorded so Bryan can sell them ;)

Also spent some quality time with friends close and near and that's always, always a plus, protected Gizmo from Mother Nature and attacked him with harmonies, saw Amy Winehouse play with her beehive for an hour or so, and played my first show with a "band". So.. let's keep this month going as it is and May will be kicking major 2007 ass!

watch me fly away



It's very humbling to play a good show only to come home and clean up Gizmo throw up 5 seperate times.

you can write, but you can't edit

My baby puppy cannot stand me when he's trying to sleep. Try as I might, I can't seem to leave him alone and he heaves big heavy sighs that can mean only one thing; leave me alone for the love of God. So, despite my good intentions in this picture, he was not happy and became a blur in order to escape me! But, since taking this picture, I've done a good job of leaving him to his slumber!... Looking over at him, I'm not sure how much longer I can hold off!!!! Gah!

your guess is as good as mine

We, Gizmo and I, are suffering. I have the headache that won't quit and he's got ants in his pants. Well, not literally, but he's so itchy that he looks like he does sometimes. But it's sad. He's not a happy puppy. He can't write impressive soundtrack music like this! As for me, I'm trying to befriend this headache since Advil and codeine both were unable to get it to shove off. So far, we're not hitting it off. It likes me, but I hate it. And sometimes it feels so unbareable I hold my breath til the pain lessens. Could it be, is my brain truely turning to mush?
