I love Japan...
She got off the plane and was SOOO excited... It was actually kinda weird.. almost like it was my first day of school... The girls were all excited and jumping up and down and stuff...
I was expecting her to be more shy and nervous.. she wasn't at all!
In all there were 3 people who spoke Japanese there... Me, the girl that just came home from Sapporo and the district counsellor's son's girlfriend who is from Korea but speaks japanese...
So, My translating skills were not needed as both of those girls were MUCH better than I was...
Well... I'm so high on thinking about Japan.. I know what I will be dreaming about tonight :-)
Hopefully I'll dream in Japanese... I miss doing that....

Tomorrow is kinda busy...
I CLOSE ON MY HOUSE AT 3:00PM!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So after 3:00 I'll be a homeowner!!!!!!!!!
And then I am helping out with another orientation for host parents and rotary club youth exchange officers...
That starts at 7... which means i will prolly not be home until about 10 or 11...
And I have to get up early to go to the bank and go and do a little work...
Another long day...
I swear.. there IS an end to them...
no.. I take that back.. there isn't in the near future..
Starting Thursday and for 10 days after that, I am working as an usher for the grandstand.. which is kinda cool.. I get to get paid to see all the music acts from the floor level... up close :-D
There are a couple pretty good concerts coming this year...
Go to this link to see what they are:
So it will be fun.. but it makes for long days... cause I won't be getting home every night till at LEAST midnight or so :-/
I'm sorry I'm not going to be around to talk that much in the next couple of weeks!!!! :-(
E-mail... E-mail is the best way to keep in touch with me... So here's the address... dlough2084@aol.com
And reading this.. cause I PROMISE that I will TRY to keep this updated EVERYDAY!
OK.. this Japan homesick soon to be a homeowner is gonna go to sleep :-)
I'll write more tomorrow!!

The Grandstand

Hi. You don't know me, but I ran across some of your posts as I was reading through the upstate New York community. I'm a native Syracusean and a music industry minor at SU. I was just wondering how one gets a job at the Grandstand at the fair. I think it sounds really neat. Thanks in advance!

Basically.. You have to know someone...
If I am still talking to you and stuff next year when the sign-ups come around (usually in July or so)... Then I'll let ya know where and when... You go for a meeting.. and then you are in...
Most of the people who work are union... I'm not.. so we basically just fill in the blanks where union people don't work...
It's a lot harder to get in the union (they work at the war memorial, carrier dome, skychiefs)... And personally I wouldn't WANT to be in teh union... I just like seeing the shows for free :-)
So.. when ya get the chance.. e-mail me or something..
Hope I helped a little!

You are an egotistical fat fuck who needs to get to the mall and buy a life. I have never met someone who is more arrogant, self righteous, and sexist in my life. Your opinions are ignorant and you think that you are better than most people. To me you are just another dumb ass white guy who needs a good dose of reality. Please just shut up and stop sweating everything that wears a bra and has legs. You and Elena deserve each other.

So you are on Roadrunner.. and according to your Ip.. out of Virginia...

Just gotta do a little more hacking and I thnk I should be able to find out exactly who you are..

and then maybe be able to find out who the fuck the Elena you are talking about is????

And, yeah, you must really know me.. cause i am so self rightous... thats why I'm in the profession I am in..

Oh, and sexist?.. yup, 100%.. hit the nail on the head.. that would explain why all my friends are women...

know who you are speaking of before you talk buddy...
You don't know me from a hole in the ground...
And chances are when I get done doing what i have to do to find out who you are, I prolly won't know you either...

Damn... stupid ass people...

And Elena? If I know you and don't realize it? just remind me who you are.. cause then I'm sure I'll find out who this asshole is....
