work is busy because of the tournament. they want me to work in the tent where 12 people stand around doing nothing for 8 hours. but if something goes wrong, it's my fault because i am the bottom of the totem pole. sweet. i need to figure out a way to convince them to put me back out on the driving range for the rest of the golf tournament. i am horrible at retail and working the cash register. well, not horrible, i just haven't been properly trained. my company definitely knows how to run it's business.

uh....NOT.

i went to a party with john daly and country singer johnny lee hooker last night. how strange. it was gun though. got to hear live southern country rock music. this is going to be a long week.

So, I've been out of sight, out of mind for a while. Busy with another part of my life, I guess. Not really. Just lazy. But I didn't have anything to write, as I do right now. Actually, I just saw Sideways. A movie about winetasting, but more importantly filmed near my hometown, on the Central Coast of California. It was really nostalgic seeing all these places in this "imaginary world", but places that I have been to many times. I mean, they had the Hitching Post, which is good eats, and they showed the area in a smaller, more peaceful attitude then people make it out to be. It's the way I like to remember it when I think about it. I was biased, but I gave it my full fledged support. It's definitely funny, but I just don't know to what degree.

The dodgers are going to trade shawn green none the less. He has agreed in principle to go to arizona, and now derek lowe is coming to los angeles to meet with the team. i don't have any real feelings about this offseason anymore. I just want the season to start so i can watch games and take my attention off how i feel about not knowing anyone or not seeing the guys i liked to watch on the field in dodger blue. oh well, we got to move on right?

I guess a team without any superstars is team without any big contracts. Oh wait, the dodgers signed kent for 17 mil. oh well. got to move on. actually, i am going to wallow for a few more days. what a sucky day. and i thought trading loduca was going to be the worst of it. oh the life of a dodger fan, i can't wait to see what they do (or don't do) next.

The baseball off season is starting to take shape. What will the dodgers do or do without? I think every year I am surprised by the moves or lack there of. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I need to go to the grocery store and get some real food. My roommates were cooking earlier and it was intoxicating. Fast food has one unoriginal smell, most of the time. I think we like fast food because we are always hungry now a days, you know, when you are bored hungry. so you can just go to jack in the crack and get a quick fix. But real food, that sounds so good right now. I am sure my mood will change by tomorrow.

I need to go to the bookstore. Someone reminded me of it. I seem to have a weird determination to learn history, philosophy, science and other stuff now that I am OUT of school. Now that there is no deadlines, no grades I feel free to learn. There are so many books I want to read. I feel like I am in a race to learn. Maybe because of my screenwriting. I want to get my creative originality out there before coincidence puts something similar and my ideas are done. Except it hurts my eyes when I read for prolong periods of time. Maybe they will have most on audio.

What I got will not get me as far as believe I can possibly go. I need turbo rocket boosters with a cool helmet so all the girls will swoon as I fly by. How cool would that be. The new "Rocketeer." How come he never burned his ass and legs when he was flying? There was a huge, fire blowing engine strapped to his back and he comes out fine every time he flies. The mysteries of comic books.

How do people just start out life in such good spirits and never delineate from that perspective their whole life? These people don't care about what can't happen or what goes wrong, but they care for what makes up happy, what makes us whole, and what will help us continuing to love. I want to believe this is me, but I the fact that I am aware of both sides to the equation makes me speculate. Funny. You want to make everyone happy, but that makes you lower your self importance and supposedly now YOU are not as happy with yourself. Or something like that. I think some people were made to be obnoxious or hateful and others were made to be patient and caring to balance the whole thing out. That or I am just making nonsense. I hope I am selfless enough at least once in my life to lower MY self importance to make others happy.

Current Music: I Won't Back Down - Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
My mind rotates around the same ideas, but can't seem to pinpoint a clear cut determination about them. There is a cloudy fog that disorganizes my ideas and recycles them back into a confusing collage of images and words that don't make any sense. No, I am not drunk. I am a little sick. But I just can't seem to grasp that ability to get into the zone and act determinedly. Whatever, I think I just need to get a good night's rest.

Last night was karaoke for my friend's birthday. Not the best thing to do to remedy a stuffy nose, sore throat and cough, but i was not always the one to make logical decisions. But everyone had fun and we embarrassed ourselves in a rather grand fashion so it was definitely fun.

I gave two of the people in my golf package tips today since i am the pro. well, they ended up in even worst scenarios then before i gave them the tip. i am going to make a fine golf pro. my buddy gave this other guy a tip and he hit the ball on the green when he probably never would have before and it won the hole for his team, but he stiffed my buddy with the tip. now we don't demand tips, but if you learn something from the pro that dramatically helps you in your golf game then it seems natural you would be somewhat inclined to repay that favor. whatever, it didn't bother me that much, but my buddy was shocked he didn't get any type of payback. got to love the tribulations of work...

I am so amped about my new kicks. Puma Meile's, brand new and just for working as a p.a. for this Porsche event. Hopefully there will be a bunch of student films next semester that need p.a.'s. the best thing about them is the food. it's like a buffet, which is probably not good for me, but it's always GOOD food. They take care of their hired help in movies.

I got this from (lookin4he2luv)

 
Kind of like a Wish List:

Step One
Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two
Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

 
I don't have anything that I need, so I didn't put anything on my list, but here's an example of an actual person. There is contact info after for if you actually can get something for them. I think this is pretty interesting, I can't believe that many people will do it, but it's fun to think that it might work for some people.


lookin4he2luv's wish list

1. A letter, card, note, whatever! Don't care what you say, just send it (snail mail prefered).

2. A visit or party/club invite during my college break. [18 December through 23 January] (Other than the two times we may be going to see RHPS)

3. Something local to where you live. (A certain kind of rock; a type of candy; a key chain with your towns name on it, whatever)

4. A mix cd. Almost any type of music, Don't care.. Limited to no country though.

5. Make me laugh on Christmas. Call me, write something goofy, make a silly icon, make a funny LJ post, whatever.

6. Any good DVD's you'd think I'd be into (I don't have many, so take your pick or get a rare-ish thing like a comedy DVD)

7. Something for my car (seat cover, dice, ect)

8. An icon made just for me. (Any kind of icon that you would think of me by looking at it. I'll likely even add your's to my user icons.)

9. A warm scarf, hat, mittens, ect for this winter.

10. Candles! Don’t care the color, scent, or size, I just want more candles!

Thanksgiving drained me. I have no energy. But the only way to get it back is to get some more exercise. So I think that means hittin the gym this week, shootin hoops and me gasping for air since i am way out of condition. Too much turkey.

I brought this back from a conversation I had. I don't know why I like it so much, maybe because I wrote it in response to an lj post on the fly.

Stealing the Secret of Life

So fortunate in life's tempting stratosphere,
you have found what cannot be understood,
yet where still is feared,
you discover human simplicity
in the split second of moments,
allowing only insight
slightly, to guide the way,
this night of all nights
with sealed lips you can't say
you have stolen the secret of life,
and kept it to yourself,
getting rich without the gold,
and without money,
finding wealth,
wishing onto brightly lighted stars,
happy with the hand your dealt.


I was reminded multiple times in the last few days of how many people in my life have such a good understanding of what they want and what they are doing to get it. I admire those who have even have a clue of what is going on. That sort of self awareness in people is comforting. I'm glad that you guys are learning and experiencing and enjoying what you have right now on your plate because there are so many people who seem to find a way to hate everything that life has to offer. I have a pretty good feeling about life and its mysteries, but it's always fun to hear what others have to say about it.

I received a brand new pair of puma mellie's for my job tomorrow and thursday at the stadium. They are SWEET. Plus I got them for free, well not free, but I didn't pay any cash for them.

Hope everyone's holiday was good or at least restful...
