Subject: So I need help my LJ friends....
Security: Public
I have this old Grateful Dead t-shirt that was given to me by my father. It is a Liquid Blue shirt that on the front has the "Steal your face" Logo, with Paradise on top and Waits on the bottom. Below that are 5 skeletons dancing. On the back the words are "without love in the dream it will never come true" with the 5 skeletons below that. This was given to me by my dad almost 10 years ago, and I know he had it much longer than that. Considering it was from when he was about 50 pounds lighter. My issue is that the shirt is falling apart now, and I want to give my dad a present. I contacted liquidblue and they state that they never made this shirt. I suspect it is so old they just don't have the pattern anymore.

I would like to somehow get this shirt remade and get 2 of them, one for me and one for my father. This statement on the back of the shirt has sort of become a personal motto for me, and I have my father to thank for that. So if anyone can help me, I would appreciate this.

Subject: God I hate Travelling
Security: Public
So it’s Passover time, thus I am heading home to Baltimore for the 2 Seders. So I arrive at the airport about 2 and a half hours ahead of time and go to the park and save. Now I didn’t realize just how far away the park and save actually is….it is a good 20 minutes away from the airport, in the middle of nowhere…..and I even saw a gunrack on a volkswagon. I didn’t think I had traveled that deep into redneck country, but apparently…I DID!

Then I get to the airport, and boy oh boy, that’s where the fun starts. You see security really just SUCKS, I have travelled before with a knife in my carryons that I just forgot, and this is post 9-11. So today I go up to security, take my belt off, and anything that would set off the machine. I leave my watch and necklace on because well, they have never set off the machine, Silver and Titanium, the metal detector doesn’t actually catch that….GREAT! So I’m walking through the machine and well BAM! BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP…..”Sir did you forget any metal objects?” Cue me taking off the watch and necklace, Walk through again! BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP…”Sir I need you to step over here”….GREAT! So I go into the screening area, and the Guard has me sit down, checks the bottom of my feet, and begins to wand me. Goes over me 4 fucking times with the wand, trying to find out what the hell could be setting off the machine, the only possibility is my zipper, but the wand never goes off over my zipper. Then the patdowns begin….OH JOY! Nothing I love better than getting patted down. In the end, the security guard has no fucking clue what set off the machine, sends me on my way, and then I get questioned by all the other TSA guards on what actually set it off. I feel GREAT now!

Subject: Naples....
Security: Public
Naples I have to say has been quite fun, as the last night I shall spend here is wrapping up, I have come to some realizations...specifically....as nice as hotels are...they fucking suck. Every time I stay at a hotel I can't wait to get back to my own bed, or even the floor....something about hotels makes it so I am actually unable to sleep well. I'm really not sure, but it pisses me off. I keep hoping that one day I'll find that hotel that well....makes me go DAMN I gotta come here more often so I can sleep well. In truth, I got my best sleep out by the pool and out on the beach.

For anyone who does ever come out to Naples, be sure to visit the Naples Zoo....totally worth it. two great attractions to see are Leopard Rock and the Monkey Island tour.

Leopard Rock....kinda self explanatory, except....well you are about 1 inch from the Leopards if they come up to the glass. Seriously....when you approach, the Leopards usually come up to the glass out of curiosity, and then you are only separated by 1 inch of glass. It's kinda cool actually.

Leopard

Monkey Island....well that's basically a boat tour of a small group of islands, and on each island is a different grouping of primates. Starting with Gibbons, then going to Spider monkeys, then Lemurs, and more Lemurs, and then more Spider monkeys, and well you get the idea. The greatest thing about it is that well....you could be as few as 10 feet from the monkeys, with no cages/glass to inhibit your viewing pleasures. These monkeys also seem a shitload happier, can't explain HOW it seems like such...but it just does.

Spider Monkey

So I got my new computer, SWEET! Macbook Pro goodness, the only issue is that when they installed the new hard drive they slightly bent the case. No real issue, a simple trip to work will get it fixed. Seriously it's a great computer. Of course I had to take the obligatory picture of myself with the built in webcam.

Subject: Snakes on a Plane?
Security: Public

So yesterday I was at Gumbo Limbo, and it brought back alot of memories. You see I've been going there for years now. My first memory of Gumbo Limbo was when I was 5 years old. We went there, and there was this Florida King Snake in a cage named "Pretzel." I asked to hold him, and I was rewarded with having him wrapped around me and my neck. My parents have a picture of me just glowing. Every year I would go back and see Pretzel, up until I was 8 or 9. Then I was told some sad news, Pretzel had been sent away.
He was too old and needed special care.


They replaced Pretzel with Onyx, who was an Indigo Snake. I used to hold her as well, but she never had the same magic as Pretzel. Eventually Onyx left, and now they have a decent amount of "Rat Snakes" and one King snake, but unfortunatly, the King snake is old and senile so no one can hold him. For the past 4 years or so, I've wanted to hold a King Snake again, and never could. Yesterday, that's a different story, I went in, and decided to ask Debbie (person in charge of the volunteer's) when they were going
to get another King Snake. To my surprise, she said that they just got one, and it's a couple months old. Of course I immediately asked to hold it. Debbie said I could, took me in to where they were keeping him and let me hold him. He was tiny and curling up to my hand for warmth.


I was asking some questions about him when I looked down, lo and behold, this King Snake did something that made me ultimately nostalgic and happy.

Pretzel has been reborn. :-)

i'm scared shitless, I have so much potential but I am scared to use it, I am afraid I won't achieve what I am capable of. I have limitless potential, no matter what I can do, I would succeed at it, and truthfully that scares me, throw me into any situation, I will adapt, teach me anything, I will learn it, that's a bit daunting. I am afraid of what I am truly capable of, it's a scary thought, I mean to have that much potential? Most people can achieve what they want with lots of hard work, for me, I don't need the hard work, it all comes to me naturally, I could teach, learn, work all that, and more, my mind never shuts off, always thinking of new ways to succeed, but that in the end scares me, I don't know what to do with it in the end, I'm scared I will succeed, and then fail, when you reach the top if you fall, it's a long fall, with nothing to break your fall.

Finally posting again.....yep, working on getting into shape again. My regime is going to start with me jogging for at least a half hour a day, 60 crunches, and 30 pushups, and slowly increase it. Plus I am going to join a gym and succeed in losing this weight I have packed on over the years. I have to kick this into high gear since I have to lose 30 pounds within 6 months, but in truth it's closer to 40 pounds, my family believes I am 210 when in reality i'm closer to 220. I need to get back down to around 180 or even lower, and muscular. That is my goal, not to have this damn gut anymore.

No longer working at the place I had a job at, I was temporary, just neither I nor them knew how temporary I would be. I leave them with experiance, and 4 fantastic references, plus they are helping me to find a new job. In the end, it can suck but at the same time, it's important for me. That's about all for now, can't think about anything else right now.
