So tomorrow I'm going to schedule my written test for my medic. I need to pass this time. I'm pretty confident... just super nervous because this is the last time i can take it. It really fucking sucks having this much pressure on this test, that is hard enough on its own. Oh well...
Right now I'm drinking Yuengling and watching the Red Sox. Top of the 6th right now. Sox up 8-7, but the Orioles have men in scoring position. I took a pretty long nap after I got home from work. I'll probably be up all night. Today at work sucked. We got held over an hour on a stupid fucking call. I don't mind if we stay late due to an emergency or something... but when we have to stay late due to an appointment for some old lady, that fucking sucks. I am really starting to hate AMR. It sucks too because Ry's last day on the shift is next Friday, so after that its the partners from hell. All the assbags that will actually get up at 5am to work... will be working with me. I can't fucking wait.

Last night's show in Brockton was really good. Blacklisted was nasty, the Confrontation was nasty, Shere Khan was nasty. Donnybrook didn't show up, so that sucked... but a good show nonetheless. I got 2-7"'s, a longsleeve t-shirt and the "new" Blacklisted CD. I was bummed because the CD is the same as their old one, but with a few other songs on it. Really bummed... oh well, it's still wicked good.
Tonight I'm working a detail at the Brockton Rox for a 100 Inning Baseball Game
. Its a charity event for K ALS. I'll be there from 730P to 930A. Wicked boring guy. Oh well, I could use a little overtime. I might take Monday off because it's going to be so nice, but I doubt it.
Alright, I just got back home from the firehouse and need to get some sleep so I can function tonight. Peace doods

Tonight at 6PM on ESPN2, an hour before the Red Sox opening game against the New York Yankees, MLB Productions will air a documentary on the impact of the Red Sox 2004 World Series win. The documentary called "Boston's Winter of Bliss" was shot during the winter months since the Red Sox won the World Series. Alina, little Hickey and myself are in a part of the video. Apparently its at some point within the first 15 minutes of the movie. It sounds to be a good production, with interviews from Dennis Leary, Ben Affleck, Stephen King and many more Red Sox fans. I don't know how much of us will be on the video but check it out anyways!
This is a link to the "official press release" for this production...http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/news/press_releases/press_release.jsp?ymd=20050328&content_id=979154&vkey=pr_mlb&fext=.jsp&c_id=mlb

last night at romans was pretty good. i saw losers sometimes win, fight night and back of tha neck. it was a good time. i got to sing my hate with botn and kind of fucked up the song... oh well, i tried haha. i'll just have to listen to that a bunch before the next botn show i go to. it made me miss doing the band, but i still don't have anytime with studing and work and shit.
i take my written exam for paramedic on wednesday at 8am. if i pass this test i'll be a full blown paramedic. sweet. wish me luck, i need it. atleast 70% of good luck. i'm a little stuck as to what to do, because i just won tickets to the dropkick murphys show in providence, ri the night before. i really need to focus and study up and shit, but it's the dropkick murphys and almost st. patricks day. i dont know. i think i'll decide that day. the show starts kind of late too, so i mean... i probably won't end up going. but whatever. i did the same thing when i won tickets to the friends benefit and metalfest last year, i won tickets and didn't end up going. sweet.
today we had a meat raffle for the firefighters association, at damiens in hanson. it was an alright time. a lot of people were there for lunch cause it was shitty out and we made like $700 for the association. not a bad ammount of money for just about no effort on our part. i wanted to stay up there longer, but didn't really feel up to it. there weren't alot of people there to hang with, so i went home and fell asleep. i just woke up a little while ago. i tried watching christmas vacation 2 "cousin eddies island adventure" but that was probably the worst movie i have ever seen. i should have watched ladder 49...
so, i'm waiting for the ms to get ready. i'm not sure whats going on for tonight, but something... something...

this weekend wasn't too bad. friday night i went to eds house. ed, little hickey and me watched random shows on mtv2. we all fell asleep at the same time somewhere around 12 or so... and all woke up around 1. kindof weird.
saturday i mulled around the house for a while. alina and i went to bane, comeback kid, with honor and silent drive at the icc in allston. it was a good show. alot of people that i didn't know were there. randoms. comeback kid and with honor were really really good. bane and silent drive were ok. i thought silent drive would have been a little better live then they were, but its cool. i completely forgot about the back of tha neck show in providence. i wish i had gone to that, but they are playing romans next weekend with 25 ta life. after the show we walked up to spikes and had some food. we were going to go to big city or something, but martin was having a party and we decided to head back to the shore to go to that. the party was cool. a ton of people showed up. i drank miller high life and ball tapped some kid in the kitchen. it was great.
today was a typical sunday. i woke up, sat on the computer, went to venus, went to eds, came back home. i had a hawaiian pizza and more miller high life. we watched the "steve-o: pcp saved my life" dvd. that guy is fucked. then we watched two of the austin powers movies that were on tbs. now, i'm home... listening to the scanner and poking around on ebay. this week was good for people on ebay selling things, cause i bought a ton. godmoney, christmas vacation 2, nike dunks, a monster garage remote controlled ambulance, ladder 49, some movie posters... too much shit. i haven't actually won the ladder 49 dvd yet. that ends in a few minutes... and will ship on tuesday.
my car is still in the autobody shop. eds working on it and thinks it should be done by friday. the rental i got (2005 nissan maxima) is nice, but i want my car back. the car handles kind of funny. i dont know, im just not used to it.
ipod update: 3800+ songs at this point... a little over half full. i love this thing. i have recently discovered limewire... and i dont have to pay for cds anymore hahaha.
hopefully my letter from the state saying when i can take the written paramedic exam will come SOON!
finally: i became somewhat proficiant with photoshop this weekend... have a good week.

so, good news for me. i took my practical exam for paramedic on tuesday and passed. now i need to wait 2 - 3 weeks for the state to send me an official "you passed" letter. that letter will contain instructions on how to set up my written exam. after the written is passed, i get my paramedic ticket. sweet deal.
i have 2500+ songs now on the ipod. and uploading more right now. i love the thing its great.
i think i'm going to go up skiing on friday and stay till saturday night. i have a long weekend from work, so it be nice to actually go and do something. i haven't skied in like 2 years, so i'm excited to go back up there and shit like that.
