The week that was...and wasn't

The ups and downs of life are worse than that creaky old roller coaster that is about to fall off the tracks. I went down to get my family two weeks ago to spend the weekend with us, it was brief but very necessary for my development and the kids spirits. We had a great time, went bowling, just had a great time. My sister came down Tuesday to spend with me during some hard times. We had a blast. Went to the casino and watched her spend 100 bucks in 3 minutes flat lol, i made 160 in that same time but by the end of the night i was down to 47, i bailed!

We went on to watch Watchmen along with my good pals Adam and Stacey, had a great time and ate at Deny's afterward. ( BTW after the Casino deal we tried to go to a Deny's and found the first closed one after dark, WTF ) Watchmen was really good, a different type of super hero movie but not a surprise as it was based on a different type of comic book. I enjoyed it, especially Silk Specterre II, what a babe! Watchmen 8/10 for me-1 point for the abundance of blue wang.

I advanced past the first round in the NBA 2k9 NeoGAF league playoffs. I'm using the Lakers and Kobe had a feast all series long. I play Encal and his Hawks, it played him tough the two games we played during the season but i lost both times. It should be a long hard fought series and i hope to come out on top, i have been playing really good as of late taking Smokey to the brink of defeat when you won on a last second jumper to win the game. Title hopes are still alive.

Well, i am going to end this post today. Things have been going well for me, i will be playing softball coming in May. I'm excited about that. May be going to my first concert in June. No Doubt and Paramore. Should be hot. DCX out!

The glue that binds us: Family

So i decided to go kidnap my mom and sister. Well, Trish helped with the capper but i layed out the plan step by step. They live in my hometown of the Bronx and i'm stuck in the arm pit of New York State. Bridgewater. With the prices of travel i decided to go and pick them up and bring them up here for the weekend and bring them back.

The kids miss them. I miss them and it should be a great way for me to break out of my plan everything same old, same old routines of the past. I'm taking my 6 year old along with me. It will be great to bond with her. She is having a had time dealing with life. Split household and a desire to please everyone even if it means to lie...yeah, she is having a hard time. We have to try to break her of this and love her as much as possible to help her along with this issue. What better way than a road trip to pick up her favorite aunty and her beloved Grandma! Can't wait, a great weekend is to be had!

Day Zero: WTF dude!

So...i turned thirty recently and came to a conclusion. I haven't progressed at all at anything in my life ( other than not progressing ) in the last ten years. Yeah, since i was 20. So lets see, the country has an African American President, The Knicks suck now and Boston won a World Series and i haven't changed one bit.

I do the same thing every day. Same routine. Same check the PC in the AM before work. Check Gaming Age forums, get dressed, go to work, talk the same, flirt the same, everything the same. Same TV habits...Sports and nothing else unless its a movie, yeah you guessed it, i've seen before.

Now how does this happen? How does one not wake up one day and get freaked out ala Neo in the Matrix and want to believe the world has more to offer! What's funny is as i sit here and type this i did become aware of my condition. There would be days where i would just stand in my living room staring at the hundreds of movies and games i own and just not know what to do with my free time, i wanted, or seemed to want to do something new and break this shitty curse...alas i didn't and ended up watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S on DVD from Season one all the way through.

This could be just me complaining and not looking at the bigger picture that allot of people are worst off etc. True. Very true, but get this. I was single for two years after my divorce and lived a single life. For a guy this means, junk food, games/movies and porn. Just about all i did. Big flirt, always have been, but when you're single its more on the surface for obvious reasons. Flash forward to now...i'm in a loving relationship with a great woman that i see spending my days with and i have not changed...yeah, still flirty :( Games and porn...yup, see where i'm going with this. I never adapted to the fact that conditions in my life have changed that i MUST adapt with and i didn't.

Well, crossroads time. I almost lost the love of my life, broke up my family, lost the respect of friends and family and i'm no better of a person from the person who was one year removed from the Sega Dreamcast US launch. It's time, the time to change is now ( i owe Obama 25 cents ) Bear with me, this isn't going to be easy, or be something that can fixed in a day, but i will say this, MySpace=gone, porn=gone...yeah 10GB worth...i'm on the path of sanity, join me :P
