some of you may have noticed a slight..drop in my posts. the reason is, as it turns out i'm too lazy to post in two places. so yeah.. my other blog is at myspace, if you want to read my continuing adventures.

well we don't have any money,.. so we're not gonna pay you. [Feb. 10th, 2006|11:12 am]

so anyway...


I had plans this weekend with my wonderful family to go up to SA for the livestock show, and a bit of valentines fun with my liza. so we packed last night and everything all that remained was for me to pick up my paycheck this morning, cash it, and go. and wouldn't you know it, they didn't have my check ready. they told me that there were several timecards turned in late from my department so i'd have to wait till the 17th, when they cut checks again. well crap.. there went san antonio. i went home with the bad news, but something was bugging me really badly. i just felt the need to come to work. and this has happened to me a couple times before. some sort of impending feeling about work.. so i went with it. liza was obviously dissappointed with not being able to go and it didn't help that i just said 'i gotta go to work'. i hated leaving like that, and i felt so dissappointed about not going either. but well, had to go to work. so i get here and small talk and whatever and i mention it, 'hey was you all's timecards late? cause apparently mine was.' and they were surprised. 'no, we turned ours and yours with it, in on time. you should go check payroll'. so i went. and payroll tells me 'well, not only do we not have your timecard. it says 'no memo' by your name. ' so i ask what that means. and they tell me 'it means that you don't have an assigment... you don't work here'. i say 'yes i do' and leave. so i come back here and tell my co-workers. man i love them, they got right on it. they were calling people and everything. so it turns out that the account that i get paid from didn't have enough money. so, it would seem that they decided not to pay me and hope i wouldn't notice. well, i noticed. and thanks to my co-workers, they got it sorted out(just gave them another account to pay me from) and i'm getting paid next week. also, liza's mom volunteered a loan so we can still make the trip. so happy ending.. though it sucks that it happened at all. i love liza so much and have been looking forward to this since we first planned it. can't wait. now i just gotta get out of work in about half an hour or so and we're gone.

mina bella, again [Dec. 8th, 2005|08:27 am]

[mood |contemplativecontemplative]

so, apparently it happened again. for some reason my post didn't show up on my friend's list.. so let's try this again.


so anyway..

i haven't posted in a while... and i've yet to post anything about my beautiful new daughter. why? i don't know, i showed her picture(and later her, herself) off at work and whatnot. i'm very proud and happy to be a father, and i tell everyone i can. yet i haven't posted anything about her. i'm not entirely sure why,.. i just felt a bit cautious, or scared or something. i mean yeah i told everyone i could.. and everyone on my friend's list i'm sure knew she was born. i just kept putting it off, for some reason(that doesn't make any sense) me posting here just seemed to be the last thing i needed to do. and basically it felt like a dream or something. if i never did this, it'd never end. completely unreasonable, to be sure, but we're all allowed our quirks, and for some reason, that was mine.

today liza visited a parenting site that caught my interest. i browsed through it and came across a section for new fathers. it offered a lot of great advice, and many things i took to heart. this is why i'm posting here, because these are things i dont want to forget. the best advice i took from the site was to make a list of things i want to develop in my child, and to be a role model and display those things. she's gonna learn from me, and i want the best for her,... so i have to do the best for myself.

things i want to teach Mina Bella:
Sense of humor. (easy enough, considering her parents)
Self Discipline. (i'm gonna need some work on this, but i will do it)
Honesty. (i'm doing good, but i can do better, and i will)
Healthy lifestyle (my eating habits need to change quite a bit, but this doesn't just concern weight, over all healthiness emotional and physical)
Politeness and Manners (i can do manners, easily)
appreciation of life (definitely much easier since my daughter was born)

those are the big things i want to instill in my daughter. there are other, smaller things that aren't so easily explained. i will do what i can and hope for the best. i love my little girl and look forward to being a good father to her. i hope later, she and i can look back on this list and agree, i did what i set out to do.

that's it for now, more later,..

so anyway...

i posted this yesterday.. but liza informs me it didn't show up on her friend's page. and i checked a couple of others that didn't seem to have it so... i dunno what gives... but either way.. here's what i said.

i've been busy working. and it's damn awesome. i love my job at pan-am and i'm so lucky i got it. it's currently a temporary assignment, but it can easily(apparently very easily) turn into a permanent position. i've already mentioned to my boss that i'd like a permanent position when the temporary one is over. she mentioned that there's a lot of work to be done, and she just needs to find funding. she also mentioned that she likes the fact that i don't pester her with stupid questions, but at the same time come to her with actual relevant questions. she also likes that i show initiative and seem to be getting done what i'm supposed to. and i showed her my progress so far and she liked it very much. so here's hoping. all signs seem positive and while i'm getting along ok with my co-workers, my boss is really the only one i need to impress to stay on. and yep i got myself an honest to goodness pan am e-mail. (hugo@panam.edu) what're the odds?

me being happy in my job leads directly to me being happy in my life. and life has been awesome this last couple of weeks. i go to work, and after i spend time with my beautiful wife. liza's been so happy for me and supportive and just generally awesome. and the baby seems to be developing along nicely too. today she made me an awesome ham, with all the fixins(stuffing, potatoes, and rolls). and she keeps the house spotless while she's been staying home from work. i love that woman and i'm so lucky we're together. with my newfound wealth we've a couple of big plans for early next year, once she starts working again and if my job sticks. (house and car! :D) but until then, i'm looking at getting a WoW account(though i've been playing on some private servers, it's still buggy and somewhat sucky that they're so empty). also i've been playing freedom force vs. the third reich. i never played the original but this one is pretty cool so far.

speaking of playing.... well i'll try to keep it clean but all i'm gonna say is me being happy in my life leads directly to me and liza getting a LOT more fun time. it's a win-win situation. i guess that's it for now, more later.

all kinds of goodness [Oct. 11th, 2005|07:11 pm]

[mood |accomplishedaccomplished]

so anyway,...


a while back, (i don't know if i mentioned it) i signed up with a job finding/placement agency. this was maybe a month or so ago. and i took all kinds of aptitude tests and gave them my certifications, and that was that. i'd call every now and then to see if they had anything and they constantly told me they'd let me know. i went on a couple of interviews for them but nothing ever came of it. then one of the guys there told me of a job at pan-am. he sent me on an interview and the person that interviewed me was very positive. he called me back and said she was 'very impressed' and they'll get right on getting me in there. so i was all giddy, but apparently there was gonna be several snags. anyway long story short, it turns out that pan am can only accept employees from specific employment agencies. the one i was involved in, not being one of them. luckily the guy that was helping me out, was a really cool guy. both he and the lady from pan am wanted me to have the job.(i'm cool that way). so they worked something out and the result was, the guy called me this morning and said 'i need you to say, i quit'. so i said 'i quit' and he's like great, come back if you need us. and pan am hired me directly. todya was my first day and so far it's pretty awesome. the pay is good and the hours are good (10-5 with a lunch!) and it's pan am so it's right down the street. all in all it's great news for us. can't wait to start bringing in the dough, to buy all the things we need for the baby(as well as some extras of course.) :D

and... i had something else to post, but i forgot what it was. ... it had something to do with.. uh.. something?... something i've seen. bah, either way, that's all for now , more later.

advent children [Oct. 9th, 2005|07:37 pm]

[mood |satisfiedsatisfied]

so anyway,...


i finally got to sit down and watch advent children today. it was pretty damn cool. the fight scenes were all kind of awesome. and there were a couple of parts that were genuinely funny.(the best one being in the church with Tifa and uh.. one of the 3 guys.(the only one who's name i know is kadaj). also the instant that HE appears(i won't say who, but i'm sure we all know) has got to be the coolest bit ever... infact i'm gonna go see that bit again after i post this.

other than that, i had a pretty awesome weekend. The weather was totally awesome.(i wish it could be like this all the time). went to the mall friday with liza and got a pretzel from auntie anne's. walked around a bit, but not too much. saturday i spent most of it alone since she and kris were out shopping and whatnot. i was fine with that, i just hung out and stuff. and tonight had some of my favorite foods, sopa de albondigas(meatball soup) and chicken w/ mole.(mo-leh, not mole as in the animal). also some homemade cookies. so all in all it was a good weekend.

that's all for now, more later.

creepy things and a spot of good news. [Oct. 7th, 2005|10:09 am]

[mood |scaredscared]

so anyway..

last night i'm catching up on some naruto i missed when my net was down. it's like 10:30 pm and kris and liza are asleep, it's dark in the house, and the only light is coming from the monitor. so i'm sitting here and i grab my drink to take a sip. as i move the cup from my desk to my mouth, i see something along the floor to my left.... i look agan and there's nothing there. i figure it must be the shadow from my cup. I continue watching naruto. a bit later i feel something move across my foot and as i look it appears to go under the bed... this time i'm starting to think i may have actually seen something. i check and both cats are on the bed with liza, asleep... i'm beginning to get a bit creeped out.... i get down on the floor and lift the covers that are hanging over the side of the bed and something scurries back under the computer desk... it looks like a little ball of fur. and the first image that pops into my head is a little round ball of black fur like 'Critters'. so with that image in my mind, i'm hesitant to stick my head under the desk to see what i can see. not wanting to turn on the big light in the room and wake up liza i went to the kitchen to turn on the light there. as i made my way back to the room i saw something scurry along the living room floor towards the front door. i run and turn on the lamp, look towards the door and there's nothing there. ... i look around by the door and there, by the door we have some tv tables .. and i see a little ball of brown fur. it's fucking louie. some how she'd gotten out of her cage and well.. decided to scare me. either way... i put her back in and fed her. i hope she doesn't break out again.

as for the spot of good news, monday i'm reporting to pan-am to finish up some paperwork. they want me to work there! yay!
