New York City baby [19 Apr 2009|10:03pm]
[ mood | tired ]

Hey! Long time no write (according to LJ it has been 26 weeks.) I wanted to write this entry to tell you all about my day in the City yesterday. Anthony and I were going because he is part of a Union at the Shelter and it was a Local 237 get together political thing and they were giving out windbreakers. His shop steward Mario said he really pulled some strings for him to get a Saturday off and at first he was like well no one else is going to work and he didn’t want to leave everyone stranded and we had a big fight about it but long story short he decided to go.  I woke up around 5:00 in the morning, took a shower and got to Anthony’s house around 6:30. We left to catch the 7:34 train into Penn, and as we were getting our tickets at the Lindenhurst station no one other than Ed came up behind us! So we sat with him on the train and since we left our maps back at his house we were unsure of how to get to the Hilton Hotel but Ed knew so we all went together. It was very tiring for me just going up the flight of stairs to get out on the street.

We finally got to the Hilton and we had to go up to the 3rd floor and sign in and tell what jacket sizes we are and we met up with everyone that works at the shelter. We went into this big room and they had a breakfast buffet set up so we ate and just hung out for a bit. Then there was a meeting just for Long Island so we all had to sit through that (boring!) We only stayed because after the meeting they were serving lunch. So I mean this is the HILTON Hotel! Very very fancy we walked into this huge room with big round tables all set up with shrimp cocktails and everything. So Mookie Wilson from the Mets was there and he made a little speech and they served us chicken and suddenly I noticed under my plate that had a little ticket that said “Mookie” on it. I was like well I don’t know what it is so I gave it to my baby. We found out at the end whoever had a ticket gets a signed baseball by him so he waited on line and we didn’t get out of there until about 3:00. We said goodbye to everyone and headed out into the big City.

We decided to go to the Planetarium which is inside of the Museum of Natural History. So we took a cab and when we got there, there was a show starting in a half hour so it took us a while to figure out where it was (that place is huge lol) and it was really amazing. It was about Cosmic Collisions showing the creation of our Moon five billion years ago when a wandering planetoid struck Earth, the violent meeting of two stars at the edge of the galaxy, and the future collision of our Milky Way galaxy with our closest neighbor, the Andromeda spiral galaxy, a cosmic crash that will produce a new giant elliptical galaxy billions of years from now! After the show we walked around the Museum seeing the Dinosaur fossils and the Mammals and the Ocean life. Everything was truly amazing and beautiful and we had an awesome time.  We would have stayed longer but they were closing so we were kind of rushed out.

So it was about 6:00 and there was a dog park right next to the Museum and we sat on a bench and watched the dogs playing. It was very nice and peaceful. Mario had told us there was a Mickey Mantle’s restaurant bar and grill near Central Park but we had no idea what street and we didn’t want to wander around aimlessly so we just took a cab to the Hard Rock Café instead. It was about a 45 minute wait to get seated so we were just looking around at all the memorabilia. We finally got seated and I have been noticing a sort of blank stare, not really showing any emotion face on Anthony and I confronted him about it. I’m like what is the matter with you? He’s just like “I feel out of my element” and I’m like you’re uncomfortable? He’s like “I need a few drinks in me to be more relaxed but YOU have a good time and enjoy yourself” I’m like I want you to enjoy yourself too so don’t worry about the people around and just pretend like it is you and me. He’s like “What if someone came here with a gun and held the place up” or something like that and I’m like you know you ruin everything. You take the fun out of it. You’re so NEGATIVE all the time why would you even say anything like that? Just be positive and have a good time! You’re in the fucking Hard Rock Café in NEW YORK CITY have a GOOD TIME without the drinking and be happy sober. I’m so sick of this. He is like “You always have to be aware if something happens I need to protect you.” Anyway when we were done we decided to walk rather than take a cab back to Penn. We didn’t know what time the schedules were and everything but it just so happened there was an 8:40 train and it was about 8:25 then. So we were waiting to find out what track number it was on and there was a whole bunch of people there and when it finally showed up on the screen a woman yelled out “17 LETS GO!” and everyone made a mad dash downstairs. I felt like I was back at the Coheed concert. We found a seat and I just felt like I was squishing him the entire time cuz I’m so fucking FAT. I can’t fit into a regular seat. Anyway we got back to his house around 10:00, I stayed for a half hour then I went back home and that was it! I always love going to the city though it amazes me every time.

The next big event coming up for us is the Dane Cook comedy show. We’re both very excited and then comes our two year anniversary. He got me a necklace that says Anthony and a little heart in the middle then Angela. The two A’s are diamond and the heart is diamond and sapphire which is both of our birth stones.

Work is going good right now. Been busy lately with everyone on holiday vacation and whatnot. Got a lot of animals boarding. That is enough for now. Until then my dears.

Coheed and Cambria Concert [01 Dec 2007|05:32pm]
[ mood | exhausted ]

HEY!!! I know it has been a long time since I have written but now I actually have something worth reading. As some of you already know, I had tickets to go see Coheed and Cambria at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City. Anthony said he would be at my house around 9-9:30 and he didn’t show up until 10:15 so we had to take the 11:11 train. He hasn’t been to the City that many times so he really didn’t know his way around, but I have so when we got to Penn I knew where I was going. The first place we wanted to go was Rockefeller Center to see the famous Tree. On our way there we found the Roseland Ballroom and already saw that there were people waiting by the doors. This is where I started to get worried. Since the show was General Admission, there was no assigned seats, so basically you get there first and you get the front row. Of course I wanted to get the front so we kinda rushed to the Tree from there, took a picture and then headed to get something to eat. We found this little pizza place right across the street from the Ballroom and it was horrible dirty and disgusting. Claudio was doing an autograph signing right before the show and I knew I wasn’t going to be able to go because I wanted to get in the front at the concert. So Anthony and I stood out there from 2:00 to 6:45 when the doors opened. We were talking to the people around us since we were there for so long and found out that this one girl was from Connecticut and another from Jersey they were really nice. They told us they had been to concerts like this before and it is basically every person for themselves. We had these other people behind us that just kept singing Coheed songs non stop. It was cool because they were good tunes but not when they are screaming it in your ear when you’re trying to talk to other people you know what I mean? Oh yeah and it also sucked because so many people were smoking and since it was kinda windy all the second hand smoke kinda went right in my face and since we were barricaded I couldn’t go anywhere else to get away from it.

So it was finally 6:45 and I handed the people at the door our tickets and fucking ran to the front. We didn’t get the front row but we got second which is still pretty fucking awesome. So as we were waiting for the opening act to come on we were fine, I could move at least. Then The Fall of Troy came on and the lead singer waved everyone to come forward and then the pushing started. The first initial push wasn’t that bad, kinda fun actually but then it got worse. People were pushing from side to side and back and fourth because they wanted to get to the front. When Fall Of Troy were done, Clutch came on and it started to get a billion degrees in there. Anthony was wearing a heavy jacket and I was wearing my hoodie and everyone was so close together we were sweating our asses off plus it was so hard to breathe I was gasping for air. I felt like I was going to pass out and so did Anthony. There were a couple of people that were crowd surfing and I had my hands down at my sides but when I needed to lift them up to pass the crowd surfers to the front I couldn’t! I tried so fucking hard to move them up it was insane and once I did I couldn’t get them back down that’s how close together everyone was. The only good thing about that was I could lean on the people in front of me. As Clutch was ending their set this ASSHOLE to the left side of me put his elbow right in my fucking neck because he was trying to get me out of the way and Anthony told me he felt like saying get your hands off my fucking girlfriend but then he’s like "You’re squishing her stop it let her go!" and he was just like fuck it let him have your spot because he isn’t going to give up. So I had the perfect spot, I could see the stage because the people in front of me were shorter, and now I had this guys head right in my face and I’m like great I can’t see a thing. When Coheed finally came on, the pushing got 10 billion times worse. Everyone was pushing SO hard from side to side I literally was grasping onto the people in front of me I clutched their arms and held on tight just because if I didn’t, I would have fallen down to the ground and got completely trampled on and its not like anyone would have cared because that’s just one more spot ahead they could get. I heard Anthony screaming at me "ANGELA I CAN’T TAKE THIS I’M GETTING OUTTA HERE ANGELA LET’S GO I’M LEAVING!!" I was like NOOOOOOOOO I don’t want to fucking leave yet. I was so close to Claudio we waiting almost 5 hours outside in the freezing cold just to get this close. Then I said okay lets get out of here because I was scared for my life. I couldn’t even enjoy the show because I was worried about just surviving this craziness. So we turned around as best as we could and Anthony started pushing people out of the way so we can get through. We were afraid that once we were up there in this mess we couldn’t get out you know what I mean. So I started screaming "LET ME OUT!!! LET ME OUT!!!" and he said it was easier to get through the crowd then and it seemed like it was never ending. Once we were out we basically ran to the back to get a cup of water. I couldn’t even hold it I was shaking so badly. Then after I got over the shock of it all I had to take a piss so we went downstairs and Anthony had to go to. I just felt like crying I was so disappointed and upset. We went back upstairs and ended up all the way in the back of the Ballroom. If I would have known we were going to be there for the show I would have went to the fucking autograph signing. That way I could have actually met Claudio and at least took a picture with him you know what I mean? Now I know, it was definitely an experience and I don’t think I will ever do it again. I would like to see them again but just not in a standing room. A venue that actually has seats like Madison Square Garden (which they are coming to in February, hint hint Anthony lol.) Yeah so it was insane. Infuckingsane.

I wanted to get a T-shirt but they only had one in my size and I didn’t like it that much. At this point I’m exhausted and disappointed and I was just like you know what lets just go. I wanted to leave. My favorite band ever and I’m walking out while they are still on stage. As we were leaving we ran into the girl from Connecticut and she said she got pushed up against the Barricade in the front row and her ribs almost got broken so she had to get outta there too. When we got out of the Ballroom I guess a Broadway show had just let out as well so it seemed like the people on the street was worse than the people inside the Ballroom so I’m just like ahhh I can’t take this!!! Anthony is like alright we’re gonna walk to Penn station and I’m like fuck no. I could barely walk and my feet hurt so bad I was in such pain. We’re taking a fucking cab. The entire time we were in the City though we were looking for Cash Cab lol. I was like Ben Bailey? We saw a Horse and Buggy go by and we both really wanted to go on but he said he was off duty. Another bummer. I was about to just sit down right there on the street and yes I was whining to Anthony and being a big baby. So we finally got a cab and the first thing he says is that he needed to stop and get something to eat real quick so we were like okay whatever we just needed to sit down. Anyway it costs us like 6 bucks to go around the fucking block plus he left the meter running while he got something to eat but I guess that’s NYC for you. As we were stopped to pay the driver this bum opened up my door and he’s like "Do you have a dollar I need to get a dollar" I guess he saw that I had just paid the driver so he saw that I had money but Anthony grabbed it out of my hands and just said lets go. So we got dropped off right in front of Madison Square garden and we were like what the fuck this isn’t Penn so we asked these people who were making out profusely and they are like that is it just go downstairs. We felt so stupid lol but after what we went through neither of us was thinking straight. We looked up at the train schedule and it said there was one leaving at 11:16... it was 11:15 at the time. So we ran down the stairs and we caught it and we weren’t going backwards this time yay! We got back to my house and we said our goodbyes and that was it. I passed out in bed the only thing I felt bad about was Anthony had to wake up early for work and I didn’t. So he went in first and basically told the entire shelter lol. So when I came in they were all like oh seems like you had an exciting day yesterday! I was like yeah it was insane. Then after work we went to the Sunrise Mall because I had realized I lost my watch when we were getting pushed around in the Ballroom so I’m like I cannot live without my watch! So he’s like alright good while we are here I wanted to take you shopping for your Christmas present. He said he wanted to get me a bracelet so we went around to all the different Jewelers to get different prices and everything. We went to Kay and I saw one that was absolutely gorgeous but it was like $1500 lol and my jaw dropped to the floor on that one and we were like okay yeah we’re gonna keep looking lol. So we finally found one we both liked it is beautiful 10K diamond white gold and sapphire for my birth stone. I’m really happy with it. I love my boyfriend :) Tonight we are going to Dave and Busters which should be fun! I’m gonna go get ready now so I’ll talk to you soon. Until then my dears.

A night out with Anthony [06 May 2007|04:33pm]
[ mood | loved ]

Hello everyone! Long time no write huh? Work is going great, although there is some drama between Frank, Tom, Anthony and I. Frank and I used to be cool, because he’s the one that trained me in the beginning but now he is pissed off that I’m around Anthony all the time. He used to be pissed off at Tom but now that Anthony and I are close they are close so it’s two against two. Ed doesn’t care though because he’s like totally lax. Thank God Frank isn’t there the entire day!!! Anyway... that was sorta pointless, I want to tell you about the amazing time I had with Anthony yesterday.

Well, the first thing I did yesterday was take my car to the mechanic because I wanted him to check it out. I was driving home the other day and my check engine light went on and it’s been shaking and feels like it’s going to stall while I’m sitting at a traffic light or something and it’s been stressing me out. The mechanic said I needed spark plugs which is a tune up I guess, that’s going to cost me another $200. I said, maybe next paycheck... as long as I’m not going to die driving it until then. Then I went home and checked the mail since I’ve been waiting for a package I ordered on amazon, and it finally came!!! I squealed like a little girl and ran inside. Anthony came over my house last Saturday for dinner and stuff and we went to the movie rental stores and asked if they had “Deadly Friend” and they said no they don’t have it. He was telling me about the movie a couple weeks ago and how he saw it in theaters with his ex girlfriend and how he wanted me to see it and everything. So when the stores didn’t have it, we basically just said oh well, sucks for us, and went on. Little did he know I was going to get it for him! So I wrapped it and put it in a little gift bag thing and I went to the Shelter, and when I got there he was in the middle of lunch so as soon as he was done I pulled him aside and said I have a gift for you and he was so surprised it was great. He loved it and he gave me a kiss on the cheek and I was extremely happy :)

When he got off work I followed him back to his house and we put on “Deadly Friend” and we laughed at how silly it was. He took a shower after that and we headed out to dinner. He took me to a place called “Boulder Creek” which is a steakhouse. I told him that I have a phobia of booths, and that we had to get a table. They only had a half booth half table available though, so I sat on the chair. I couldn’t tell him why though. I had a Mud Slide to drink which was absolutely delish and he had I think an appletini? Anyway, we were both tipsy by the end of the meal lol. We had good conversation too, which is what I was a little nervous about in the beginning. I asked him “So, are we official now?” and he said that we are just “seeing” each other, and that he wanted to take it slow and I said okay, I’m sorry for being pushy I just wanted to know where we stand. After that we went to Farmingdale Multiplex to see Spiderman 3, but we got there around 8:30 and it said the next showing was at 10:00 and we didn’t want to wait so we went to UA Farmingdale I believe and they didn’t even have Spiderman showing and the next thing we wanted to see was Disturbia and that was at 10:30. So we went back to the first theater and got tickets to the 10:00 showing of Spiderman and of course there was a huge ass line to get into the auditorium, and this guy behind us was all “I feel like we’re at an amusement park ride!” because they kept letting people in a little at a time, and then he’s all “I guess we’ll make the next one!” I don’t know but I found that funny, because I felt that way too. Anthony likes sitting in the front, and I said I like sitting in the back and I was kind of upset about that, I wish we had that in common but we sat like 4 or 5 rows from the front I said it was okay. The movie was really good and we got back to his house around 1:00 in the morning, I gave him a big hug and kiss and thanked him for everything and that was it! I had an amazing time, I think I’m in love with him. I can’t wait to see him tomorrow. Until then my dears!
