As from tonight, I am no longer an Olive Garden/Darden Inc employee, and it feels great. At the same time I know I will miss everyone. I have a lot of great memories I will take with me.

One more week until I move to Chi-town for good. Excited as all hell, needless to say. I'm driving up there tomorrow to take half of my stuff to mom's and spend time with my brother and my relatives who are flying in from Puerto Rico. Very excited about that one too.

Anyway, not much time for an actual update, but as soon as I get to mom's I will type one. Love y'all.
First off, hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with your family and/or friends.

I had a great holiday. Last night Mindy and I held our annual OG Thanksgiving Shindigle at her place. A ton of people from the restaurant showed up and we had a blast. Got a little drunk too with the wonderful apple cider that Mindy made, that was wonderfully spiked with tons of vodka and wine. =) Ate a ton of food that Mindy and others made as well. Flirted with some of my very straight co-workers as a result of my drunkenness. Overall had a great time.

Then today, I wanted to go to mom's in Chicago, but when I talked to her earlier in the week she said she and Tom were not going to do anything special for Thanksgiving. Soooo, I spent the day with Mindy and her family instead. We drove 2 hours back to her hometown in Aurora, Indiana which is right outside of Cincinnati, Ohio. We had a great time with her family. Her dad is funny as hell so I see where she got her sense of humor from. There was an atmosphere of relaxation the entire afternoon, which was great. We then drove back to her apartment in Bloomington, where her boyfriend Matt was waiting for us, and we all decorated her apartment with Christmas trees (5 of them!, hehehe) and made pizza from scratch, which turned out pretty good.

Side note: so I was thinking about waking up early tomorrow morning to go to Best Buy and take advantage of the sales and stuff, and Mindy wanted to tag along with me. Um.... not so much anymore! Mindy and I drove by Best Buy when we got back into town. There were people camping out outside the building. Like, literally camping out, with camping tents and all, and the line of people was already extending around the corner of the store. This was at 8 PM!!!!! Which means these people will have camped almost 10 hours by the time the store opens tomorrow, and there's no telling how many of those people got there before 8 PM. So yeah, needless to say, I won't be going to Best Buy tomorrow. =( Probably the best thing for me, since I really don't need to buy an XBox 360 yet.

Anyway, have a great night everyone. Love ya'll.

Doing what I need to do...

So, "An Inconvenient Truth" came out on DVD today, which means I was finally able to watch it. I wanted to go see it at the theater the day it came out, just like I did when "The Day After Tomorrow" came out.

Here I am sitting in front of the computer and I think I am at a general loss of words for how I truly feel after watching the movie, but I know that I have to do something. It baffles me (actually scares me beyond description) that there is all this evidence in front of politicians supporting all the facts about global warming and how it is a legit threat to human civilization as we know it, and mind you all this evidence is piling up as high as freaking Mt. Everest, and politicians, ESPECIALLY REPUBLICANS, just shrug their shoulders annd still DARE to say that global warming is just a hoax. It obviously isn't, especially since the first thing that Republicans try to do when movies like "An Inconvenient Truth" and "The Day After Tommorrow" come out is to try to stop them from being released to the theaters. Are their minds that guilt-ridden that they will go to extremes in order to stop the truth from coming out? Or I dunno, maybe it's just the fact that Al Gore made the movie. Anyway, this is one of those movies that regardless of what political beliefs you hold, you HAVE to watch this movie. And we have to take steps to ensure that the message that Al Gore and the entire scientist community have been trying to filter out to the general population is not only heard, but turns into a message we can all learn from and do something about. And one of the things we can do is to make sure WE DON'T EVER ELECT ANOTHER FUCKTARD LIKE GEORGE DUMBASS BUSH TO BE OUR PRESIDENT! It's time we start taking responsibility for our roles in global warming. I truly commend Al Gore for all the efforts he is doing to spread the overall message of warning, and the thousands of people around the world trying to do the same. I have always wanted to do something about it, and I can't believe it never really hit me how badly I wanted to do something about and for the environment until I watched this movie. I mean, all you have to do is watch it to see the tremendous amount of scientific evidence that supports global warming, from ice shelves the size of Rhode Island breaking off from Antarctica, to some of the worst tropical storms we have witnessed in recorded history, including the first ever tropical storm to form south of the Equator, to some of the highest temperatures we have seen in this planet all ocurring within the last 14 years! It is scary indeed, but you have to see the movie to see just how scary it can get if we don't do something about it. Let's just say that "The Day After Tomorrow" is not all fiction.

Anyway, sorry for the long rant... the environment is one of those things I am passionate about, and I think tonight I may have even been reminded of how truly passionate I am about it. And I can't stand still and not do anything after watching this movie, even if it's just telling all my friends about the movie. Please watch it if you have the time. Maybe all the evidence presented in the movie won't be enough to completely convince you that global warming is an actual threat, but I can guarantee you it will AT LEAST make you think and question your stance on the issue.

Anyway, I'm off to bed. Later kiddos.


Friday the 13th, people!!! I'm SOOOOO excited.

Jan. 29th, 2006

Had dinner with mommie dearest and Tom. We went to the same yummy Chinese buffet I went to last night with Asa. So I have had enough yummy Chinese buffet in two nights to last me the entire year... well, maybe not. But still, I ate so much it ain't even funny. And so, I see one of my goals for 2006 slip away under my rolls of fat... or something like that.
My mom is in Bloomington!!! She decided to do a last-minute, spur-of-the-moment visit to her fabulous son. And she is in town right now. Thankfully I was able to find someone to cover my shift tonight, though I still had to go to work for about 2 hours. Anyway, on the agenda now: quick shower, getting ready, and going to the Hampton Inn to see mommie dearest and have dinner with her and Tom. Nighty kiddos. =)
