I'm back.... kinda [Dec. 27th, 2008|04:22 am]
Alex
I'm going to attempt to update this thing again. I haven't really been writing much as my life has been hectic and in a huge downward spiral. I'm doing ok before anyone gets worried or decides to blow up my cell. Its been a trying year for me and I haven't been handling it the greatest. I've lost dear friends to me, crashed my vehicle, lost my license and ran a fowl of some personal road blocks that I haven't been able to clear. I'll make it though I have always been a survivor. I just wish that I could have been doing this the entire time as it used to help me clear my head and get some perspective on things. It just helps to see them in type and not just bouncing around my head. I've met some interesting people and done some interesting things. I don't think I'll getting around to actually writing stories again for a long while. I wish I had the passion, the drive to get it done. I just haven't been able to think about anything but putting my foot in front of the other for quite some time. I hope that I will correct that soon.

Totally off subject, but as a service industry employee. I have a few things to say that I hope get spread far and wide. WE DO NOT care about the economy. If you DO NOT have the money to pay for your meal and a 20% tip DO NOT go out to eat. Its cheaper to buy your food and cook it yourself. I'm not saying that every server deserves 20%. I am saying start at 20% and go up or down from there. We have to live off of this money and really most of us can't afford to put away anything past money for living expenses, even before the economy went to crap and now we are definitely cinching up our belts cuz its hard to afford to eat. Also don't go out to eat christmas eve. It is rude beyond all imagining. Seriously we have family too and if people like you decide to go out it gives the companies excuses to stay open and keep us away from them. At my company it is mandatory to work either christmas eve or new years eve. Most people choose New Years and the rest of us who don't work with the scheduling manager often get stuck working christmas eve. Also if you simply must go out on christmas eve. DOUBLE your normal tip. Make it worth it for these poor saps that have to work. I made 70 dollars on christmas eve this year and I had 500 dollars in sales. That was before I had to tip out my busser and my bartender. leaving me with 50 as it was christmas and I over tip then. So I walked with 10% on christmas eve. I even had 2 tables stiff me. Bah fucking Humbug.

Flogging Molly [Oct. 28th, 2006|03:46 pm]
Alex
I went to chicago on wednesday to see Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and Throwrag Thursday night. So we are standing in the rain between sets smoking when this chick in a Flogging Molly Hooding walked up and asked if we like Flogging Molly. We were like damn right and she asked if we wanted to go see them for free. The had made last minute arrangements at the Riviera and the show was way under promoted. So we were like hell yeah lets stay and go. We ended up having to stand outside for like 6 hours cuz we had to leave the hotel at 11 and the show didn't start till 7. But we were first in line and got be up front center stage for the whole show. I caught a signed drumhead. Its fucking awesome.

Hey anyone up for a concert? Its this monday at first ave. KMFDM and Combichrist. Tickets are $20 and if you are going to ride with me you will have to either A.) be close enough to me for it not to be a hassle or B.) get a ride to my house. But I'll pay for parking and if you are of drinking age I might just buy you a drink or two. It'll be a grand ole' time. ;) Show starts at 8pm I'll probably be leaving around 6:30 or so. \m/

Why is it that whenever I would like to talk to someone, anyone online. They are all offline. Some major shit went down tonight. I think my brother attempted suicide. I came home and he was laying down on the couch completely fucked out of his gourd. Mumbling about how he was worthless and how he should probably throw up cuz he took too much of something. He called them "Magic Pills". (Well Blaze came on so he doesn't count in the Offline category.) He wouldn't say what even when the ambulance came he refused to tell them. He told my mother and I he deserved to die. I'm so pissed right now. I wish he was home so I could beat the shit out of him. Grrr.

So I did something pretty spontaneous today. Well atleast something that I usually wouldn't do without thinking about it for a while. I stretched my 8 gauge lobe piercings to a 6 gauge. I have two piercings in the same lobe and they are now both at 6 gauge. Let me tell you it was the most intense stretching I have ever had. It wouldn't have been so intense if I had only stretched one and then the other, but I'm glad I did it. Hopefully pics to follow.

Heh, I've wasted almost an entire day on the computer here. I'm a bad employee. :shrug: I'm going to get back to work. Somebody needs to claim Alex time on Saturday. As it is my only day off for like 6 weeks. I'm thinking that it will be spent drinking heavily. That is all.

So I have been really sick the past couple day, I think I am finally getting over it. This is going to be a rough week as I have missed quite a bit of work, but I'll make it through. So yeah. I'm going to pretend like I am working again. Laters.

So the birthdat party on friday was a huge hit, sorry I didn't post info on here, but I was trying to keep it some what small. Posting on the internet isn't the way to keep a party small. If you didn't make it and got a personal invite you missed out huge. :P Talk to you all later.
