Never ever ever go see a movie that will get you interested in... uh, certain things. Okay, I know that encompases an awful lot. TRUST me on this one though; don't run out to see The Fast and the Furious IF, this is a big IF, you are Realllly into cars and speed. DON'T DO IT! You'll walk out of the theater and RED will be the color you see.

I really shouldn't have seen that movie. I so want to put money into my car now. Oh, so much money into my car now. Maybe it'll be as fast as the General Lee. Who knows. Hey, it could happen.

It could! Anyhow, I want to go nuts with my car now. I'd better be careful though, the job market isn't that good at the moment. Oh I can see it all goin on noooooooooooooooow!!!!! Brakes, computer chip, shocks, etc... ahhhh. EXHAUST!!!! OKay, )))deep breath((( I'm going to go put my little head on my pillow now. RaLLy.... short shift... ok, mu...st ...must sleep. <- meaning -> out.

Had to join in on the fun. 'Zero Wing' by Toaplan

In A.D. 2101

Captain: What happen ?
Mechanic: Somebody set up us the bomb.
Operator: We get signal.
Captain: What !
Operator: Main screen turn on.
Captain: It's You !!
Cats: How are you gentlemen !!
Cats: All your base are belong to us.
Cats: You are on the way to destruction.
Captain: What you say !!
Cats: You have no chance to survive make your time.
Cats: HA HA HA HA ....
Captain: Take off every 'zig' !!
Captain: You know what you doing.
Captain: Move 'zig'.
Captain: For great justice.

That's what I call nostalgia. Hit me baby one more time! <- meaning -> out

That's not a type-o. Geesh, get it!? It kept me awa doing something else else. Ahhhhh whateva. Wouldn't you like to be THAT line. I know I would.

Seriously though, last night was cool The awards ceremony was very nice. The best part, I thought, was when the presenter for the IEEE said, after I told everyone at the table that they were the Geeks of the geeks, "In case none of you knew, we're the geeks on campus." Gotta love it! GEEK OF THE WORLD UNITE! The theatre/theater people are awesome. It's like a small family. I give you all an A+ in my book. Rock on thespians! Rock on.

Silence . I really enjoy silence. Every now and then I turn off the radio and CD player and listen. I listen to the sound of the wind, the bumps on the ground, the sound of the engine. Oddly enough, the sound of the wind in my ears as I fell to the Earth comes to mind. = )

Friends are over at the moment. We just make a trek through the "Rainforest Cafe" and now we play! Game on! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ car!

Now I sit in my own silence. A stillness that's welcoming and comforting. Silence of the mind, no not yet. I doubt that will happen anytime soon. Oh whoa is me. Oh such... to use a great friends' term 'drama'. I feel that some iolationism, even if for only a few moments in my life/day, is going to help me get through my present situations - emotionally and physcially. I'm not dying or anything you greedy bastards. I'm just coping with things that I am, ha!, fortunate enough to have to 'deal with'.

Yes I laughed at that. Think about this if you will... You are sitting at home/work/stuck on a train/browsing the web --- THE WEB. The world wide web! You have access to information about ANYTHING! Let me say that again... ANYTHING! With that I can pretty much guess that you are able to read... you're reading this aint ya. You're breathing - double double bonus bonus. How much better can this get?!

Really? Okay so you didn't get the grade you expected on 'that' test. Yea yea yea, you're stuck in traffic again. Whop-di-doo. You and I are damn lucky to be able to have the chance to complain about this stuff. I've been beating myself up recently over somethings and wondering "What am I gonna do?! Ohhhh man!!!!" I think I know now. I'm going to take it as it comes and accept what is presented to me... I'm refering to the emotional stuff right now. I'll make my way forward with my career - that just needs time.

As this book carries on tonight. I'm feeling much, MUCH better than last night. Thank you time! There is a certain someone that doesn't like what I call them here in this journal. I'm sorry you don't like your reference name, but that aninimity thing is kind of important to me regarding other people. You know how I feel. This has not changed. You know what I said and you know what that means. *S* <- meaning -> out

I saw shi-gatsu tonight and I must admit that I am in a very strange frame of mind. Can you say "WTF!?" I can, often too. I'm all sorts of in a mind funk. I just saw someone that messed me up emotionally for years and I was comfortable hanging out with her. I WAS COMFORTABLE!?! I could even throw in the word HAPPY and I wouldn't be upset with myself.

Then I come home and I talk to 'the end' and I'm all sorts of messed up now. As one wheel turns another is stopped as the gears switch places. What the hell is going on?! Talk about one wild ride! I've never, neVer, NEVER seen a news scoop like this before. EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT GP HAS A LIFE THAT's ALL SORTS-A MESSED UP!!!! EXTRA! EXTRA!

Anyone up for a world tour? I could use the fresh air.

Please? Anyone? Please.......? Anyone there? Anyone.............? I guess I'm all alone in this mad place. Damn this hurts. Pulling and twisting. Up and down. I'll just leave it alone... my emotions that is. I'll just leave them alone and figure 'em out later. DAMN CHEMICALS. GAH.

Damn this hurts & tomorrow is ONLY Tuesday. UUUUGH! <- meaning -> out

[[[BZZT]]]"Thank you for flying air 'Up & Down Allot, please depart to the rear of the vehicle BEFORE the vehicle comes to a complete stop. Thank you. Please fly again. [[[BZZT]]]. I will look back on yesterday and I will feel something that only a large minority of the world population have EVER experienced. I am now of the select few.

There is no true description except to put into perspective what I felt as I looked down at the ground from 13,500 feet. NONE! But, there is a saying that can help to grasp it... "sensory overload." Thank you Steve Rafferty (my tandum professional) for the wonderful experience. He's jumped, GET THIS, over 7,000 times. Now boys and girls, I want you to think about this number - 7,000. He started in 1988. Let's look at the numbers...

1 year = 365 days... check

13 Years = 4745 days... {gulp - wow} check

This means that he jumped over 538.461538(461538 - repeats) times PER YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can you say new profession. Uh, holy fried ants Batman™, we're gonna need another plate. DAMNNNN! You ARE the man Steve.

Okay, with my math done I feel the need to enjoy the day... this time on the ground. I'll ellaborate more later.

I watched the video of me jumping again. I felt the jump again. I FELT the jump again. I am in awe of myself. I WILLINGLY stepped out of an airplane into, well, the air! WILLINGLY! I went through "industrial haze" spoiler: a cloud and I watched it and then I watched the ground from a vertical position. Then I watched it horizontally with the shoot out! Oh man it was wild. I am going again. OH YES! I am going again. I'll be working on the video - getting it online that is. I'm well past my perky hour <- meaning -> out

Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a spider can. Hmm, hmm, hmm. Hmm, hmm, hmm. Oh, you want to know how it goes? Oki oki...

Spider-man, Spider-man
Does whatever a spider can
Spins a web, any size
Catches thieves, just like flies
Look out! Here comes the Spider-man!

Is he strong? Listen, Bud!
He's got radioactive blood.
Can he swing from a thread?
Take a look overhead.
Hey there, there goes the Spider-man!

In the chill of night,
At the scene of the crime
Like a streak of light
He arrives just in time

Spider-man, Spider-man
Friendly neighborhood Spider-man
Wealth and fame, he's ignored
Action is his reward
To him, life is a great big bang-up
Wherever there's a hang-up
You'll find the Spider-man!

That was fun. Gotta love spidey. As of riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight....... NOW, there are 350 days till the movie opens. Ok, so I wait. I read random things about a "Monkey Man" and 'monkeys with mechanical arms'... and I wait. I read stories and I grow a beard or maybe a goatee... and I wait. I look around and see my arm lose interest in my typing... walking away. HOLD ON, that... hmm, that would be odd.

Life it is way too cool. Why? Oh, nothin' major, just gonna jump from 13,500 feet on Saturday. I'd like to thank all the little people that even thought of the parachute. Rock on my friend! Rock on! With all of this monotony completed. I'm going to eat a turnip. <- meaning -> out

And now a song composed by a friend of mine with me today: We're calling it "Song=fun Job=not fun"

A new song.... sing it out loud!

Oh yea, we had fun singing and singing. Just like in the karaoke bar of old. Ah, memories of Japan. I go now to read my script for my call back. Gramm-rrr good now. gaaah llalaaalaaa, me go whallaaaladooooo! <- meaning -> out

Back pain slowly fading... Thank you PCP! As much as I didn't want to get any drugs or medicine. It sure helped relaxing. My thanks to satori.

Well I saw Red Planet, glad I wasn't the one that rented it. I then saw "8 Days a Week" on HBO. GREAT feature! It was Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat! nigh nigh <- meaning -> out

Okilidokili, I found out that I loathe certain things more than I thought. I have so much stress from work that this will be EXTREMELY brief. My back in in such pain that it's hard sitting for a long period of time. I've never had this much pain --- EVER. Even during all my years on the soccer pitch. Unreal.

Speaking of soccer. On a happy note, I was told that a young boy did not want to go to his baseball game because he wanted to go to soccer (goalkeeper) practice instead. Because of me! I felt so honored when I found this out. His mom told me before I left. Awww, shucks. Oww, pain. Okay, other than that... I went to an audition for Marvin's Room. Me be in severe pain. <- meaning -> out

Okayokay okay. T'was Mom-Day today, so I spent it with... me mudda. Me mudda is be one oh dem coolio muddaz. She's suppah fly if you kno' wha' ahm sayin! Ahm gotz me dem damn da best mudda dat ah cude ax fo'. Thaz right.

I know I know enough of that. I'm not even good at it. That's okay because if you read reallllly deeply into what I just said you can figure out every tinsy tiny word.

We did the mudda and "The Kid" thing at Friendly's. The place was rockin and people we're swinging from the ceiling just like those ape things we call planetary cousins. After that it was a venture over to the grandmother's residences. It was good to see Dziadz & Honey and Gram. They were all on the up and up. Thank you time for being so kind to my fam. I think the only thing to say now is... time for me go nigh-nigh. <- meaning -> out.

Sleep is great, but not for some of us. Just check out the LotD and you'll understand why I say that. It's so odd that I've included a pic from their web-site. We're talking strange stuff. Itruly feel for those in the photographs reference I sleep because I slept from 3 am till 2 pm today. WHOOOOOhaaaaaa I needed the rest. It felt dang good though I tell ya.

A while later, about 1 hour, I went to a Hotchkis Field and saw the most AMAZING THING!!! I swear I have never seen this type of thing ever happen in my life. I saw a bird walking down the trunk of a tree - vertically. Adding to that, I saw the bird fly from one tree to another, landing on the trunk vertically. It proceeded to walk around on the trunk of the tree flying from one tree to the next! I have never, ever, EVER seen a bird do that! Talk about wow! Holy tanker losing oil Batman™!

On another note, 'the end' is damn cool. I'm so glad that there is a chance for happiness in life. Being the optimist that I am; I have hope. Fingers crossed. I'll end the night with a random thought, "What's behind door number 2?!" <- meaning -> out.

Whoa nilly! I lost my mind for a moment there. Not that it really matters any at this point in time. I mean who in their right mind sells pelicans a large land fill for 50 Pillados nowadays?! Duh Gar! 50 Pillados!?! Oh man... I need to go back to business school.

Primal Fear - one word - rentthismovienow. two words - gogetitnow getitnow. Talk about a wonderful performance by Ed Norton. Oh-my-god! And I quote "How the fuck should I know!?" You've got to see how he sells that line. O-me-O-me-O-my. For all of you that appreciate good acting... this is a must see.

On another note, 'the end' seems to be a fresh new start. This, I will admit, is refreshing in certain ways. There are plenty of aspects to my present life that need a facelift..(cough cough - my job) but that doesn't reflect on this finely tuned machine that I'm using as my means through life. NO-sir-R-bob! Not-at-all. Enh-enh! = ) I'm okay with the way 'the end' is moving along. I think I'm actually, surprisingly, going to be okay. Phew! and Yea! to boot.

Work... well, let's just say that my mom said that unless... shoot what did she say? Ah well, I guess it wasn't THAT important. Sorry ma, I listened to the other stuff you told me about. I SWEAR. I'll just leave it that I loathe RED TAPE. Loathe. What a nice word. Loathe, it's a very nice word <- meaning -> out.

Well, after playing on the swings I must admit being a kid ROCKS! WOW! Talk about a good ol time! I forgot how much fun it was to swing up... and down... uuuppp and dooooowwwwnn. That feeling when you reach the zenith and you sliiiiiitghtly pop out of the seat. TALK ABOUT COOOL! Oh yea, it was cool. That was the good part of the eve. The end... well, that fits. Another quote to wrap up the day. This time? The Doors - 'The End'. The second time. Ah dangit.

This is the end, Beautiful friend
This is the end, My only friend, the end
Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end
I'll never look into your eyes...again

Not all things end as planned. Some take time. Some others... well, some others take more time. I plan on waiting... So, here's a shout out to Jim M "I'm the Lizard King! I can do anything!" <- meaning -> out

Cinco de Mayo? May 5th, 1862 lots-a Mexicans stopped lots-a more o-them French peeps. After 50 years of victories - NOW that is a run!. Thanks to them, we celebrate the back to back 5's. Yeeeeeehaaaaa~!!

Hit the scene in Norwalk last night. Oh ma'ron, talk about the overseas Abbott and Costello. I met some of Jacek's coworkers and their friends. HOLY COW! $2000+ phone bills by the roommate that calls his girlfriend daily in Ecuador. No permission to use the dish washer or the air conditioner - they use to much energy. LOL, AND get this, $6 dollah meat balls. Paid in Full. His reaction to THE question you know your asking yourself, "We're they good?" Without a beat, "They were good."


I was laughing waaaay harder than I should have been. This guy from Srilanka and his roommate from Trinidad were at each other in such a friendly way. The grass is green fellas. Ah man, well, the party was kosher, though some Mexican music would have added to the feel of the flavor. Ohhh yea. Instead Dave Matthews was lent to the speakers a more than the rest. Commercialsm... gotta love it. SUCKERS! <- meaning -> out

I proved something to myself tonight. I'm human. No doubt about it now. I am a 'm'animal and I do things as I like. This includes mental and physical. I am 100% H.U.M.A.N. - human. Such is the way of a human. I accept what I am. So... pffffffffffffffffffft!

Does that make you happy/sad to know that self? Actually self, it does not. It does make me realize that I can accept and live with feelings though. Self, that is a very good thing. Well me, I think it's about time the 'wall of emotion' was set for deconstruction. Self, I couldn't agree more. <<Bang bang>> (hey... this is gonna take some time. Come back later.) <--- meaning --> out

A quote from Dream Theater's 'Scene From a Memory'. This excerpt is from Home Scene 6

The Miracle:
I remember the first time she came to me
Poured her soul out all night and cried

I remember I was told there's a new love that's born
For each one that has died

I never thought that I
Could carry on with this life
But I can't resist myself
No matter how hard I try

I leave you to rest of the CD. It's a worth a listening. It's actually worth about 15,453 listenings. I think I'm nearing that number. Ears burning...AHHHHHHH <--- meaning --> out

Monthly ramble: garyploski.COM is here, not there or dare you say it, made of Nair™. No, it's a friggin site built by a guy that learns as he goes and only hopes that the the reader finds him more interesting than he finds himself. Okay, so maybe he needs to work on the look of the page. Maybe he even needs to buy some friends. Yea, and just maybe he needs to run off a cliff made of Jell-O™ so he can see what happens when a he lands in a vat of Gummy Worms™??????! Well?! Now whatcha think about that, huh?
