Stranded in Detroit working here at a shitty hotel for a few more days. Just caught up with an old friend I havent heard from in a few years...im pretty stoked about it....missed her dearly.

Decided not to buy the new 06 mustang b-cuz i dont want to work my whole life to pay off that car...seeing how i only make bread crumbs right now. Maybe in a few years. Decided to go ahead and get a 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT. Gonna use alot of my money to modify it with a bodykit and possibly lambo doors in the next few months....

The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
"'Tis some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door-
Only this, and nothing more."

Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
Eagerly I wished the morrow;- vainly I had sought to borrow
From my books surcease of sorrow- sorrow for the lost Lenore-
For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore-
Nameless here for evermore.

And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain
Thrilled me- filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating,
"'Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door-
Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door;-
This it is, and nothing more."

Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,
"Sir," said I, "or Madam, truly your forgiveness I implore;
But the fact is I was napping, and so gently you came rapping,
And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door,
That I scarce was sure I heard you"- here I opened wide the door;-
Darkness there, and nothing more.

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortals ever dared to dream before;
But the silence was unbroken, and the stillness gave no token,
And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, "Lenore!"
This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word, "Lenore!"-
Merely this, and nothing more.

Back into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning,
Soon again I heard a tapping somewhat louder than before.
"Surely," said I, "surely that is something at my window lattice:
Let me see, then, what thereat is, and this mystery explore-
Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore;-
'Tis the wind and nothing more."

Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and
In there stepped a stately raven of the saintly days of yore;
Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed
But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door-
Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door-
Perched, and sat, and nothing more.

Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore.
"Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou," I said, "art sure no
Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering from the Nightly shore-
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore!"
Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore."

Much I marvelled this ungainly fowl to hear discourse so plainly,
Though its answer little meaning- little relevancy bore;
For we cannot help agreeing that no living human being
Ever yet was blest with seeing bird above his chamber door-
Bird or beast upon the sculptured bust above his chamber door,
With such name as "Nevermore."

But the raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only
That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour.
Nothing further then he uttered- not a feather then he fluttered-
Till I scarcely more than muttered, "other friends have flown
On the morrow he will leave me, as my hopes have flown before."
Then the bird said, "Nevermore."

Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken,
"Doubtless," said I, "what it utters is its only stock and store,
Caught from some unhappy master whom unmerciful Disaster
Followed fast and followed faster till his songs one burden bore-
Till the dirges of his Hope that melancholy burden bore
Of 'Never- nevermore'."

But the Raven still beguiling all my fancy into smiling,
Straight I wheeled a cushioned seat in front of bird, and bust and
Then upon the velvet sinking, I betook myself to linking
Fancy unto fancy, thinking what this ominous bird of yore-
What this grim, ungainly, ghastly, gaunt and ominous bird of yore
Meant in croaking "Nevermore."

This I sat engaged in guessing, but no syllable expressing
To the fowl whose fiery eyes now burned into my bosom's core;
This and more I sat divining, with my head at ease reclining
On the cushion's velvet lining that the lamplight gloated o'er,
But whose velvet violet lining with the lamplight gloating o'er,
She shall press, ah, nevermore!

Then methought the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censer
Swung by Seraphim whose footfalls tinkled on the tufted floor.
"Wretch," I cried, "thy God hath lent thee- by these angels he
hath sent thee
Respite- respite and nepenthe, from thy memories of Lenore!
Quaff, oh quaff this kind nepenthe and forget this lost Lenore!"
Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore."

"Prophet!" said I, "thing of evil!- prophet still, if bird or
Whether Tempter sent, or whether tempest tossed thee here ashore,
Desolate yet all undaunted, on this desert land enchanted-
On this home by horror haunted- tell me truly, I implore-
Is there- is there balm in Gilead?- tell me- tell me, I implore!"
Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore."

"Prophet!" said I, "thing of evil- prophet still, if bird or
By that Heaven that bends above us- by that God we both adore-
Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn,
It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels name Lenore-
Clasp a rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore."
Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore."

"Be that word our sign in parting, bird or fiend," I shrieked,
"Get thee back into the tempest and the Night's Plutonian shore!
Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken!
Leave my loneliness unbroken!- quit the bust above my door!
Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my
Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore."

And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
And the lamplight o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted- nevermore!

...taken away in the blink of an eye
Does anyone else ever what happens when you die?

I think about it from time to time and right now it happens to be one of those moments. You know when you lay down on the bed and then next thing you know you are awake and it is morning? That unconcious point from laying down to waking up where you have no recollection of ever falling asleep, moving, or dreaming. Its just dark and empty...a nothingness? I think that is what death is. Nothing,nada,none..... Yeah, I guess I am pretty bummed out because I found out a friend of mine has cancer in the 3rd stage. The doctor says they could get rid of it if they make all of the appointments and take all the medicine. It can be cured... But someone here has to be strong and I'm trying everything I can to give all the support humanly possible.

Enough about that....

I'm in Pittsburgh,Pa right now and I've been here for about a week. I was down in West Palm Beach,Fl for a few days to steel frame some offices for a Crowne Plaza. I'll be coming home for christmas so thats a good thing. Found out that I will be there from around the 23rd of Dec until about the 2nd or 3rd of Jan. However, while I am in town I will still be working so I wont be missing out on money$$$. I need a new car. I found a car that I like and I am thinking about buying one but first things first. I want to test drive one and look up how much full coverage will cost me for it. I'm ready for another few days off...I'm dead fucking tired. No day off with little sleep! LETS HAVE A SIT OUT! MORE SLEEP! MORE PAY! LESS WORK!! thats the shit I'm talking about!

Chicks cannot hold the smoke......thats what it is!
Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole saturday in detention for whatever it is we did wrong, but we think you're crazy for making us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us, in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out, is that each one of us is a brain, and an athlete, and a basketcase, a princess, and a criminal. Does that answer your question? Sincerely yours, The Breakfast Club.

Stupid, wortless, no good goddamned free loading son-of-a-bitch........retarted mouth know-it-all asshole Jerk!

You forgot...ugly,lazy...and disrespectful...SHUT UP BITCH! Go fix me a turkey pot pie!

No dad...what about you?. FUCK YOU!
No dad......what about you....FUCK YOU!!

Back on the Field
Well I ended up going home for Turkeyday. I was there for about 6days, however, it still wasnt long enough. Spent most of my time relaxing at my apartment because it was my first time off in over 2 or 3 months and it just felt great to do nothing. Although there was that point where you wanted to do something so you went and fixed shit around home. Yeah, I had a few of those moments. Other than relaxing I tried to spend time with Mike and Pat when they werent working. It was great to see my friends. Hung out with some old friends I hadnt seen in a long while. Thanksgiving Day was pretty good. Glad to have gotten to see most of my family while I had the chance. Baby sister Alison is as rambunctious as ever. The little kid doesnt understand the meaning of STOP or Slow Down. She'll be 2 in February...just 3 days before my 22nd birthday. What you bitches gettin me?? Anwyay I left town yesterday at like 6am and drove to Strongsville,Ohio for about 2 hours to see how the job there was going. Afterwards, we headed south through West Virginia,Virginia,North and South Carolina and made here in Brunswick,Georgia around 1:30 this morning. It was about a 17hr drive but I made it in one piece. Went to work this morning. I was using a carpet knife(and those of you who understand know how sharp them fuckers are...) to cut some tape and plastic and the knife slipped and it ran across my left wrist and palm. Not bad enough for stitches but hurt like hell. So now its wrapped. I'll be home for the Holidays!!!

Sucks, sucks...totally sucks!
Last night I spent almost 4 hours in the emergency room down here in Georgia. I had just finished working for the day and all of a sudden I started have stomach pains like someone had just kicked me right in the nuts. Didnt really worry too much about it but the feeling hadnt gone away for almost 3hrs. Then it started to hurt even worse, I got up off my bed to go take a leak and it was light pink. There was blood there. So I had my step-dad/employer take me to the ER. They took a urine sample and gave me an IV and some stuff for pain(good stuff. About 15minutes later I had to go into a room and lay down on a table and the nurse stuck to enormous suringes(spelling)into my IV that had some kind of dye that would drain directly into my kidneys. She took about 20 xrays of my kidneys and pelvis area. My first xray showed my left kidney drained correctly but my right hadnt. I waited another 15 minutes and she took another, by this time my right kidney had drained. She took many more xrays for the doctor to look at and I had gone back into my waiting room(the room was a Cardiac room with paddles,hoses,cath(penis)tubes,chest tubes and all that stuff, lemme tell you, being in that room was QUITE uncomfortable). Doc comes back and says "Nate, you have a kidney stone!" He said its about 1/2 te size of a rice krispy and I will be able to pee it out. He said due to the size it shouldnt really hurt but the inflamed kidney and bladder will still cause irratation. For those of you who dont know what a kidney stone is....it is a build up of toxins that your kidneys couldnt destroy fast enough and they start to build up over time and then block your urinary tract causing blood in the urine and pain in your abdomine.groin and lower back. My particular type of stone is a Calcium build up. You can get them in your back,shoulders,feet,hands and your kidneys. Me being such a dairy person didnt seem to help none. It can be hereditary, but it has nothing to do with your weight, just your dietry habits. When I first noticed the problem I thought it could be a variety of things. Infected kidney or bladder( but ruled out becuase it didnt hurt to pee),kidney tumors/cancer, kidney failure or stones. All is well, I was prescribed painkillers and pills for nausea but I havent needed them yet. I feel 100% better than yesterday. It may have already passed through me, but Im glad I'm Ok! Time to lay off the dairy a bit.

Thanks for listening.....it helps.

To hell with Florida! Lets go out West!
First entry....dunno what to say.

Im stranded in georgia and I am definitely ready to come home. It is pretty close to thanksgiving do i get to come home. SWEET!! Its has been 4months since I was last in town. Kinda miss my friends, family and whatnots. The beginning of this month was really hard on be because it was a year ago the bitch and I called it QUITS for good this time. I still think about her from time to time. I do miss her and all but thats what memories do to you. MAKE YOU THINK! I tell myself that I still love her but Im not IN love with her..does that make since to anybody else? Anywho, its still pretty warm in georgia while everybody back home in Michigan are getting snowed on...HAHA FUCKERS! I just got out of West Palm Beach, FL right before Hurricane Wilma hit. I was the for Katrina. That job down there is cursed. FUCK FLORIDA! It is by far the worst state I have ever been in. Its hot,muggy and the air stinks like dead fish. Terrible place I tell ya! Ive been traveling on the road for about 3 years now and so far the best places are out west. Like Cali or AZ. They might be hot but its a dry heat. Better than having you nuts stuck to you legs.
