12:39 pm - I was where rappers go.
Hello everyone.  It's been a while.  To anyone who reads this; I'd like a summary of your life right now, let me know how you are & what's up.  Although, really, I don't know who still reads these.  So I guess it'll be a suprise.  Cool. 

For those who didn't know, I'm getting married this August.  So wedding plans & work are pretty much taking up all my time lately.  I do still try to find time to watch movies, relax around the house with Emily, and hang out with Justin, Mindy, Adam, and Erik & Jon when they're in town.  My life is pretty laid back & pretty nice right now. 

If I wrote a review of a movie, would you read it & take it seriously?  I think being a movie ...reviewist ...would be fun. 

Ok, bye.

current mood: nostalgic

Hello everyone. It's been a while since I've written. Here's a basic outline of my current life.

I'm moving to Columbus May 27th. Emily's goin' to Grad School & I'm finding a job up there. We already have a townhouse. It's cool. The basement will be my Bronco Basement. Good job Broncos for kicking ass at the Draft. Another good job to the Avs for kicking Dallas' ass. I'm quite happy.

I'm very ready to move, the change will be nice. I'll miss Jon, but he's off to school in Pennsylvania, so at least I'll be close to Justin.

I need a west-side job in Columbus ASAP.

current mood: cheerful

So, what's new:

I no longer work at Cingular. I quit/got let go because I wasn't a good salesman. So for the past month I've just been sitting at home relaxing, enjoying not having anything to do. But I really need to find a job now.

Anyone know of any openings where you work? Or any openings around town? I've never gotten a job without an inside connection, so hopefully someone can help me out.

Nothing else is really new.

The Broncos are 9-2. Playoffs here we come.

Seriously, find me a job.

12:33 pm - Update
Let's see, what's been going on these past couple weeks...

3 weekends ago I hung out in Columbus with Justin at Mindy's parents house. Sweet basement. We watched college football & got drunk. Sadly, I threw up 3 times on the way home. Stupid car.

I got contacts, finally. I like the way they make me look, along with my new haircut & new facial hair decor. I am now quite handsome :)

2 weekends ago Emily & I went to Baltimore to visit her friends & to go see Paul McCartney in concert. It was a rockin' good time.

Have you guys seen Sideways? It's great, sets a very interesting mood.

Last week was my birthday. I am now 22. I had a really fun birthday week & got some cool presents, including Blue Jackets tickets from Emily & a Matchbox Corvette from Jon :)

This past weekend Jon & I helped Justin move into his new apartment in Columbus. It's really nice, I plan on visiting a lot. Then we watched the Broncos beat the Patriots! Yay! Now they're 5-1, tied for 2nd in the NFL. Go Broncos!

Ok, that's all I got.

current mood: chipper

7:07 am - Hi, my name's Olie
I'd like to begin this entry with a revelation I had recently:

From about the beginning of Senior Year up until I met Emily, I was, off & on, pretty much a phenomenal dick. I regret being so & I'm sorry that I was. I'm thankful that most people took me with a grain of salt & somehow continued to like me and/or put up with me.

I would now like to announce that I have, officially, grown up & have stopped being such an asshole. This began happening about 2 years ago, but I have just now realized it. I believe the change came about as a direct result of being happy. So I've decided to stay both happy & nice.

In other news, the Broncos are 2-1 after routing a bewildered KC team. It was a much needed win & now we are 1st place in our division. Go Broncos!

I no longer work Saturdays. My schedule is now Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, 9-6. Cool.

Looking forward to hanging out with Justin this Saturday, should be a good time

current mood: pleased

LJ Interests meme results

  1. cake:
    The band, not the food. Though I like both. Incidentally, my favorite kind of cake is Funfetti w/Rainbow Chip icing. As Shala would say, it's like a creamy slice of Jesus. My favorite Cake song would have to be Alpha Beta Parking Lot. Download it; you'll like it.
  2. dogs:
    They kick ass. I like all dogs, but my favorite kinds are beagles, golden retrievers, and great danes. I really miss Sammy & WiCiT, who I had to give away. They were cool.
  3. hooded sweatshirts:
    The most comfortable article of clothing ever invented. I look forward to Fall so I can start wearing them again. I would really like to pick up a Broncos one, but they're really expensive online. You can buy me one if you'd like.
  4. jon stewart:
    The funniest man ever to be seen on television. He's also quite the actor and has been in some great movies, including Death To Smoochie & Playing By Hearts. Did you know Jon's last name used to be Liebowitz?
  5. movies:
    Top 5 favorite movies: The Royal Tenenbaums, Braveheart, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, What About Bob, & The Princess Bride. Some of my other favorites are Dead Poets Society, Top Gun, Snatch, American Beauty, LOTR, Breakfast Club, and all the Monty Python movies.
  6. snow:
    It's just so beautiful.
  7. the princess bride:
    Hello. My name in Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.
  8. third eye blind:
    Motorcycle Driveby might just be the 2nd best song ever. The first is, of course, Only In Dreams by Weezer. I've seen 3EB in concert and they "rock".
  9. what about bob:
    Dr. Marvin! I sailed! I'm a sailor, I sailed! Did you see me, out on the boat? Out on the lake, way far away from the dock? With the wind & the wind & the sky & everything? Ahoy!
  10. zanesville:
    I love Z-ville.

3:01 pm - I want a Beagle
New York was fun. First off, it was a free trip, which is always cool. Emily had already paid for everything, so I spend 20 bucks on some food, a NYC shot glass, and a Broncos Matruska doll, lol.

We went to Battery Park, spend some time walking around there, saw "Ground Zero", I was very unimpressed. Went to ChinaTown, ate some good food, walked around Greenwich Village, where we were asked for directions and told that we seemed like we must live there. We saw Phantom, it was awesome, of course. Spent some time in Central Park, went to Strawberry Fields, which is across from where Lennon got shot & dedicated to him. Went to the Met, it was cool. Ate some great pizza. Walked around Time Square & Rockafeller Center. Then went home.

All in all it was a lot of fun. That marks my 3rd time there, and I'd definetly go back. Justin & Jon, we should go sometime. We'd have a good time.

The Broncos won yesterday, barely. This next game against K.C. will be the deciding factor between a good & a bad season, I think. I'd like to send my congratulations to those Bengals fams out there. So far so good. Though, like the Broncos, they still have to prove themselves against good teams. But good luck.

When Cameron was in Egypt land... let my Cameron go.

current mood: peaceful

10:23 am - Ya Da Da PUTZIER!
I have nothing to talk about.

Played poker last night. It was fun up until I got screw-balled.

I believe it to be a sure thing that next fall Emily & I will be leaving the Ville. That's right, no more Maple Avenue Goodwill. No more Dairy Queen bench. No more ZCT, the Mall, Tom's. I'll miss you, Z-Vizzel!

The reason we're leaving is School. Emily's going back to get her Masters or PhD. I'm going to get ...something. We're looking at 4 areas: 1) Denver 2) Chicago 3) Baltimore 4) Columbus. Right now my number one choice is the University of Colorado. But we'll see. I gotta start appyling.

Emily & I are going to NYC this weekend. It's a red-eye trip with some people from her work. We're gonna see some museums, visit Central Park, go see Phantom. Should be cool.

The job's still going well. Suprisingly, I make sales & get commission. I don't really know how, I just kinda hang out & sometimes people come in & I put stuff in the computer & it makes me money. *shrug*

Ok. Bye.

Yesterday Emily & I got a cat from the Animal Shelter. We named her Abby, she's 2 years old, and she's a dusty sandy light brownish yellowish color. Very cute.

Well today are fuckin' neighbors complain about her. Nothing specific, they just don't like the fact that we have a cat. These are the same neighbors who complained about our other cat and who we think took it. So they convince the landlady to make us get rid of the cat, even though she just told us we could have one outdoors.

We proceed to take the cat to my sister's house. I then tell the neighbors to, "Mind your own fucking business." And now, tonight, we're gonna sneak the cat inside & let it live indoors. Take that, you goddamn nosy assholes!

12:54 pm - Break Time
The play's all done & I am glad. *nod* It was fun & the people were cool, but I'm gonna enjoy having nothing to do at night except watch movies & play Mario Kart. Welcome back, Life.

My vacation was cool. Emily's family is ...interesting. But hey, I got to lay on the beach all day, have my food made for me, swim, read, watch fireworks, eat shrimp, and just "chill".

I recently joined Netflix. I'm very excited. My first movie will be "Life Aquatic".

Tomorrow I'm going to the zoo. Yay!

Jon's party last night was a big success. Good goin' bud. The food was great, the people were cool, and the poker money was ultimatley mine & Pyle's, so that was cool. Hopefully we do all that again sometime soon. *thumbs up*

I'm leaving for Florida on July 2nd for a week for Emily's family vacation. It should be a good time. I plan on relaxing like it's my job. Wait...

I started an MSN Space website the other day. It'll have a lot of pictures on it once I start working on it. So everycome visit Olie World! www.spaces.msn.com/members/olieworld

I'm sitting here at work doing nothing... SWEET! I like me job. So far, in 2 hours, we've had 2 people come in "just looking". Fine with me.

John Elway's Arena League team won their Bowl. That made me happy. And it gave me a nice football fix until preseason starts in August. I love football. GO BRONCOS!

I really have nothing to say. So bye.

current mood: good

8:13 pm - Wirelss One, this is Olie...
Today I had my first day at Cingular. It was cool. My boss seems really laid back & relaxed, which is awesome cause my last boss was a psycho. Once I get the hang of it I think it'll be a pretty easy job, as long as I continue to think of the idiot customers as funny, not annoying as hell & extremely ignorant.

Only 2 more months until pre-season!

1:22 pm - Hey there
I got a job today. I now work at Cingular. Thank you to Anthony for helping me out, and thank you to the people who hired me though I have no skills or experience. I'm not sure why things just work out for me all the time, Jesus must love me.

"Working" went off excellently, what a great show. And now I'm in "Forum", so everyone come see that in July at ZCT. I play Hero, a lovestruck young lad who sings high & loud. I plan on this being my star role & impressing all the talent scouts & becoming a millionaire, so come watch it happen.

Life's pretty cool right now. Emily's great, living together is still perfect. Hangin' out with Jon & Pyle and sometimes Smitty is as awesome as it always has been. I might go back to school in 2006. I'm leaning toward studying European or Medieval History, I think that'd be neat.

This weekend I'm gonna be dog-sitting for some new friends, Jacob & Amy. (Hello to Amy if you're reading this, I added you to my friends list). I like dogs.

That's about it. Let me know how your life's going. Later.

current mood: pleased

How much would you pay every week to have your lawn mowed?

And is that something you would pay to have done?
