Birthday Weekend

Birthday Weekend

I must say I had a good weekend. Better than expected. Friday, me and Angela got ready, and went to Club Metro to check out Corvid and we saw part of Tragic Black. Corvid put on a great show. Besides that, it was okay. The vibe felt odd with the few people there. Angela was nice enough to drive my drunken ass home.

Wow, It’s Been Awhile….

Wow, It's Been Awhile....

Wow, it’s been awhile since I’ve updated this. It’s been about a month since my last update. I’ve started at Verio again as a Unix System Admin. I started just about a month ago. So far, I’ve been happy. Wish I knew more, and felt more useful, but i’m sure that will just come with time. My drive into work has dropped from 100 miles to just over 30 miles. Can’t wrong with that. I’m also doing the type of work I want to be doing. Dugway was just boring, and when there was work. It was just boring, and not very fun. I enjoy my coworkers here at Verio more also. Working 5 8’s is taking some getting used to, compared to the 4 10’s I’ve been doing over the past few years. The days feel shorter, but I really enjoyed having 3 days off from work. I’m working 10am till 7pm Sunday – Thursday. I enjoy having my Friday and Saturday off from work.

Memories, Hooks, and Guns!

Memories, Hooks, and Guns!

Let’s see, a lot of has happened over the past week. Last Friday I went to Club Vegas with a friend to see Corvid play a show. Had a good fun time. To my surprise my parents both went to Club Vegas to Corvid/Ben play. It was a lot of fun. Didn’t make it to bed till around 2am if I remember right. No biggie, but had to be up at 5:30am to get some fishing done.

So I got up at 5am or so to meet up with Jim to get some fishing done. We decided to go up and hit Strawberry. It was a great trip, just wish the fishing was better. I managed to catch a 14″ rainbow after a few hours of nothing. We ended up a getting a few bites. Called it quits at around 10:30-11:00. I wanted to be back into SLC at around noon. I managed to get home at 12:30. At 2pm I meet the Crums for lunch at Rodizio Grill up in SLC. We all enjoyed the food, and it was a great time. I was beyond the point of tired, and not even thinking right. Some time over the weekend, I also managed to buy a Mossberg 12 gauge shotgun. I got a pretty good price on it, $177.00 from evil Walmart.

July 4th Weekend….

Posted in Family, General on July 6th, 2010 by James
July 4th Weekend....

I must say that my July 4th weekend was great. I did have work on Friday and Saturday. Friday after work, went on over to my brother’s for some drinks. Saturday, he invited us out to party with some old friends. Good drunken times both nights. Nothing insane by any means, just really laid back and relaxing.

Sunday, (July 4th) we left the house by 10am to get on up to Evanston. Once we got up to Evanston we stopped to grab some smokes. 30 bucks a carton. SCORE! A carton is SLC is now costing 50-60+ a carton. I ended up getting 2 cartons. Got to Becky and Deans and gave Jayden his birthday presents. He loved both the mp3 player, and the cell phone.

We packed up the guns, and went on out to the usually spot. We popped off atleast 200 rounds of 9mm, and 100 shotgun shells. Good times for sure. Something about shooting skeet I just love. Once we were done with that. I grabbed some blueberry beer, and had some bbq hamburgers. Did I mention that the weather in Evanston was AWESOME!!!! Once the sun set, we had to throw our sweaters on. During the day was perfect. I’m guessing it was in the low 70’s/upper 60’s. In the evening it dropped down to the low 50’s.

Dean had some fireworks, and I ended up buying a few fireworks. The fireworks were great. No loss fingers. Glad did had a firework go off about a foot away from her head. Come about 11pm, we called it a night. We were beat, and still had to drive back to SLC.

Overall a great weekend. I had both Sunday and Saturday off from work. Tomorrow I have off from work. I need to dump a bunch of money into my car. I’m guessing about 800 bucks. The bulk of that being tires, and an alignment. I think I have some front end issues going on. I was told about a year ago that I need a strut mount bearing. I was quota about 100 bucks for that part/labor.

I don’t want to dump so much money into my car, but it needs to happen. I also need to get rid of the lizard. I just don’t have time for taking care of the lizard.

I’m Going to Lagoon

So I got someone to trade shifts with here at work. He is covering my Saturday, and I’m taking his Wednesday shift. Doing this so I can make it to the family reunion at Lagoon.

Awesome 5 Day Weekend….

Awesome 5 Day Weekend....

I had Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday off from work. Had a great week.

Monday after work started off me rushing home, getting ready for the show. Me, Glad, and Megan cruised on down to Club Sound to catch Lower Class Brats, and Vice Squad. Had a blast at the show. Lots of booze, old faces, and drunken good times. Glad was so trashed she ended up falling out of the car when we got home. Me and Megan stayed up till about 3 drinking and bullshitting.

Tuesday, I ran Glad on up to her part time job, and picked her up. Ben called and wanted me to head on down to the recording studio. That was good drunken times also. We then went on over to Burts for more beer and music. The local band sucked, the touring band wasn’t too bad. There was maybe 10-15 people at the bar. Really empty, but had good times with my brother.

Wednesday from what I remember was a mellow day, along with Thursday also from what I remember. Thursday we did end up watching Frozen River. Glad hated it, and thought it was stupid. I thought it was okay, and could have been better. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I paid more attention to the movie.

Air Show Last Saturday

Air Show Last Saturday

Last Saturday (June 6th), the family went on up to the AFB for the air show. The pictures are located here. I think we all had a good time, I know that I did. I know that James wasn’t to excited about going up there to begin with. Jayden was excited, but he was done towards the end and had enough. We ended up hitting the road shortly before 8am, and got up there parked and everything by around 9ish. I very glad we showed up when we did. When we left at 11:30, it was a total zoo. Traffic everywhere, people everywhere, traffic backed up for miles. Total insane zoo. Anyway….

Grrrr… Frustrating Week

Posted in Family on April 11th, 2009 by James

This past week has been frustrating for a few things. Don’t know the best way to put it, but half way into the week, it just seemed like everyone just wasn’t getting along. I think it started on Wednesday. Cause of events on Wednesday, me and Glad gave in and brought a pack of smokes. Felt really bad for going out to buy a pack. Oh well, shit happens.

Thursday was Glad’s mom 50th birthday. She hung out with her mom during the day. I ran the kids on up to Evanston. Kids had Thursday, Friday, and Monday off from school for spring break. That evening when I got back, we took Glad’s mom out to eat at Applebees. That was nice and yummy.

Friday was alright, between a few people I got really frustrated, and guess what? Yup brought another pack of smokes Friday night. Went on up to Evanston to pick up the boys and bring them to Layton (to Justine’s). Jayden wanted to stay for longer, Val said she would bring them back. So he ended up staying. The biggest reason why I went up there was to get James, so he could have a sleep over. Well the sleep over never happened. But James was wanting to hang out with Justine for the weekend. Granted the drive was long. From Orem up to Evanston (100 miles), then down to Bountiful (Justine wanted me to drop em off there), and then finally back home in Taylorsville. I think it was 200 miles. 3 1/2 hours of driving if I remember right. Left work at 5:30pm, and didn’t get home till after 10pm. When I got back home, Glad had some coworkers over. We mainly just bullshitted, drank, and played Sorry.

We also moved the computer desk from the living room, back into the bedroom. We hope to get a kitchen table, so that’s mainly why we put the computer desk back in the bedroom. Us eating in front of the TV is getting old. Not too bad when it’s just me and Glad. But with the kids, it’s getting old. I still need to clean up that area, got shit all over the place where the computer used to be. Oh yeah, Tuesday night we had Jim come over for a bit.
