New Mexico Wedding!

So as I said we had my nephew's wedding to go to in Santa Fe NM last weekend. Ron, William and I left at the ungodly hour of 4am the Thurs before to catch a 6am plane. William was ok Ron and I not so much. But all was well we made the flight and our connection and arrived in Albuquerque NM on time but had to wait a couple of hours for my Dad, Brother and Dom to arrive from Westchester. We then had to go to the train to pick up my Aunt Jody and finally got on our way to Santa Fe. Ron and I stayed in a different much cheaper hotel then everyone else but it was ok. Easy walking town and it was good to get away from the crazy people. Plus they took William alot so we really got away!

The wedding was nice way more people then I thought came. Who has a destination wedding and over 100 people show? My nephew I suppose! It was a very Southwestern wedding. Mariachi band, spicy food, etc. Not bad but poor William faded and we had to leave before the iPod got plugged in an the dancing started. Before that it was a snoozer. I'm told it picked up but as I said we must of missed the fun *shrug*

We did a lot of eating on this trip mostly Mexican and southwestern food. It's good but I am not the fan of spice! We did a bit of sightseeing. Ron and I took a walk to the train depot and saw the old trains as well as got info for a scenic ride. We ended up doing that with William on Sun when everyone else went rafting. Nice little trip and Ron was happy for a change LOL! On Mon we left Santa Fe for Albuquerque. Ron and Aunt Jody both left for home. William and I stayed a few days to see stuff with my Dad, Brother and Dom. We took the tram up Sandia peak. It is apparently the longest and highest tram ride. We were pretty high up there. My nephew got elevation sickness, William had a massive bloody nose, I froze my ass off up there and my stooopid brother got lost hiking by himself. After he found his way back we had dinner up there. The next day found us at Bandelier National Park. We climbed up the rocks to see inside the indian mountain caves. Really cool and a lot of climbing. I forgot my dang camera and am waiting on my brother to send me pics from that day.The last day there we went to the Rattle Snake Museum, Kids Museum, the Aquarium and Botanical Garden. Not much to say but they were nice and fun. Damn hot that day too!

We left the next day really early again. That is about that. Some photos below. I have a ton more but I didn't get around to uploading any more then this. Maybe tomorrow. William left for a week at my sisters and I don't have much work because many of my clients are away. No money for me and too much time on my hands!

I haven't posted in a while have I? Yeah doing the easy blurbs on FB I suck! Anyway what is new with me? Not tons I mean sure there was Maxwellfest which was my last post. So I did do that! Just yesterday Ron registered us so we have our con tickets now. Well we always had them because the great and powerful Tom purchased them a while back we just had to go and register. I actually tried a couple of times but for some odd reason it just would not take. So I sent an e-mail and they were to enter us manually but just last night Ron decided to give it a whirl on his Mac and of course it worked. Dumb PC!! Maybe I need to switch to a Mac?? Anyway we gots our con tickets. I said I wanted to play Mags but I really haven't the time to make a video cause we leave in a few days for a week so I will miss the deadline. It's all good I think I've performed in enough cons over the years. I do want to see Ron play Brad in ST though as he didn't for the AC con but we will see!

Oh and that brings me to why we will be gone. Yes we are going to my Nephews wedding in NM. Much to Ron's dismay but we already got the plane tickets (bought them before major financial issue though we really shouldn't have cause the writing was on the wall back then too! Anyway!!) My sister found us a hotel a couple of blocks away from the wedding hotel for $80 less a night and once we check out of there my Dad will be paying for my hotel for the rest of the trip and rented a van for the whole family. I worked my butt off for a couple of months taking on extra dog walking and managed to save $800 so I guess we will eat or pay the hotel bill not sure depends what Ron has. I know he hasn't much. But whatever we leave this Thurs at 6am! Blarg the flight leaves at 6am we leave the apt at 4:15am Fun stuff with a 7yo!

The last 2 weekends William has been home for a change so him and I have seen some movies. We did Despicable Me two sats ago and Toy Story this past Sat. Both really good movies. We also were invited by a friend to see the Walking With the Dino's at the Garden. For FREE!! Yayyy her law firm has a sky box so free food too! It was amazing! That was 2 Sun ago. Last Sun we managed to finally go swimming. William goes swimming with camp and at my Dad's so he is in a pool a lot me not so much. It was kind of chilly and we only did a half hour. We went to Riverbank State Park. That is the park in Harlem on the Hudson over a dump! Yayyy we want to build a dump in Harlem but if we put a park over it then it's all ok right?? Anyway I'm told it can get stinky but it was totally not and quite a pretty park. Lots of facilities including 2 pools and a ice skate/roller rink plus tons of sporting activities and a cafeteria. Where we had lunch. Then played in one of the playgrounds. Plus they were having a fair and William got his face pained. Nice day!

That's about that some photos of dino's and William's painted face below!

I think a post is in order don't you?

So it's been a few days or well more then a few days since Maxwellfest! I've really been meaning to make a post but we jetted off to my Dad's right after and then I've been really very busy to sit and write. And well I guess I didn't really know what to say but thanks which I did to whoever I could already. But still a LJ post is really in order. So here I find myself searching for what to say!

Anyway you got me you all got me!!! I was cryin like a baby because I couldn't get what I wanted and look you all got me what I wanted!! I can't get over it and even though I know why you all did this and I so appreciate it it's kind of hard to really understand and accept it. Though don't worry I have, Liz is booking the flights for us as we speak. The thing is Ron and I are usually the ones helping people and we are glad to do it. Well the truth is he is the real generous one. Most everything we do for people is because of Ron not me. That is why I was so upset about it you know he really deserves to go and get the accolades because despite me bitchin about him he is a really great person. Anyway it just sucks that we found ourselves in this position we ALWAYS found a way to just do it but having that feeling of oh shit we really can't do this or we may be in serious trouble truly sucks!

Then last Fri came and despite Ron not wanting to go out we went! Liz asked him and he went. Liz you have the magic touch as he really didn't want to go socialize but lets not dwell on that he went! It was fun hanging at the Trailer park and going to the show and yes Larry you guys really do put on a great show I should go to NJ and see it from time to time!! It was a really fun night. I was completely shocked when Liz said what she said and Casey came out carrying a gigantic check in a bikini (you have a nice ass Casey I have said that already but it needs to be said again!). Still am in shock and again really why did you all do that??? But as I said all that is needed is thank you so that is what I will do!

Liz you bitch for making me cry!! I can't believe you started all this you are the awesome! Thank you! Thank you everyone who contributed you all are awesome!! And apparently as per Kevin I owe everyone a lap dance! NO PROBLEM it shall be done!

Much love!

The Circus and the Birthday Boy!

Wednesday my Dad drove William and Dom into the city to see the Ringling Bro Circus. I met them after work. We had great seats and the boys had fun. We missed the preshow but that is ok it gets too crazy anyway. I spent $40 on crap for William and Dom. Damn is it expensive. Anyway I forgot the camera so tried to get a few with my phone. Only the elephants came out and the 2 of William.

There is also a picture of the birthday boy at Hooters. He is 7yo today. Though that was taken a couple of weeks ago and not today but you can never go wrong with a cute kid posing with a hooters girl right?

Tonight is the Lion King! William is very excited!

Look at me! Dom and William after the circus.

So lets see this past weekend the child was away (oh and still is yayyy Spring Break and yayyy my family!!) Ron and I along with an old time NYC performer Bobby Big Daddy and the fabulous Jai from Home of Happiness cast performed with the NYC cast on Sat! Bobby has been talking about coming back to play Eddie and Dr Scott for some time and well finally it happened. I really can't remember when Bobby left cast but I know it was in the early days of the 12th st era so early 90's I would think? Bobby did play at the 8th st playhouse near the tail end but for sure was with that cast through the East Side Cinema and Movie Land days and then as I said a bit at 12th st. He is one of the best Eddie's that ever performed with the NYC cast and well one of my favorite people.

It was a really great show and we had so much fun. The current cast who performed that night with us was really good. I loved performing Magenta with Jai as my Riff. We are really good together and I would love to perform with him again any time he wants!! And of course my Big Daddy did not disappoint! He is the man and we love him! Ron of course was great he always is and was really happy to get to play with Michelle as it's been a while. Yeah so a good time was had and photos below. Click on any to see the whole gallery.

Oh a side note Drea and Mike came to see the show for us and I really appreciate it as they don't go to Rocky at all any more. Talking about them. We saw them the next day, Sun, for Mike's birthday. Good food good friends and of course good drinks! Sorry we flaked after dinner as I hear they had a really good time at karaoke! Oh well next time, the old people needed sleep on a Sun night! That is about that!!!

Stuff

So yes as you all know 2 weekends ago Ron and I went to Larry Con. No I will most likely not post photos here. You all saw my pictures on FB. It's way easier to upload lots of pics to FB not so here. My recap of Larry Con. Fun times, drunk Ron, hanging with cool people, fighting with security! Much of the rest was recapped already by others that are way better writers them me. So that is about that can't wait for the next Rocky gathering. TC in DC I suppose!

Since then it's been work and child things. Last Sun William was in a concert at school with his percussion workshop to benefit Haiti. The group has been only learning to play and practicing for a very short time and ya know they did great!! William was so proud of himself and if I can get the video up maybe you all can see it! Below are a couple of photos.

Yesterday NYC had a rare snow day. I had to work so a friend took William with her son. They sled for a while and then went to their place to play. When I picked him up at 3pm I took him out for more sledding. My ass was out in the cold and snow just about all day. But the good mom that I am let him stay out for 2 hours until enough was enough and we headed in. Thank god I was soaked and really cold at that point. Nope no photos of the snow day. Not sure why just with work and all I didn't want to deal. Oh well!

Time to go back out in the cold and snow now and walk the dogs! See ya!

Before he goes on looking good! Getting ready to play

Photos!!!

I posted about Beatles Fest a bit ago but never posted photos like I said I would so here are a few. Click on any to see the gallery.

What I haven't posted about was meeting the "real" Santa at Macy's. William and I went I think the Sat before Christmas. I decided to get a very early start and got there just a few minutes after the store opened. There was a small line just entering Santa Land but not too bad. We were on line for maybe 1/2 hr before we got to Santa. It was a fun line though. Train layouts and stuff to look at. Then Santa! William did really well much better then a couple of years ago. I don't think we went last year actually so I can't say if he would have been ok at 5yo but at 4yo and before not great with Santa. This time he sat on his lap no problem and asked for a Wii! I suppose it worked because Santa did indeed get him that Wii! After paying way too much for a Macy's photo of William and Santa we went to a puppet show about the miracle on 34th st. It was cute! That was about that photos below and click on any to see the whole gallery.

Ok I'm done now!

ATTN: Larry con attendees

Specifically those that play Magenta or want to play Magenta or want to get involved with who plays Magenta!!

I bid for the part not necessarily to to play the part myself or at all maybe. I bid because it was tons of fun!!! Also because I wanted to support Larry and all the people who pay gobs oh money to put on really great cons. Oh and least we forget spend more of Ron's money!!

All that said I don't really know what I want to do with the part. I would like to take suggestions as to some creative things to do. Maybe have a Magenta swarm, or dueling Mags or a puppet or a fun object (though whoever suggests an object has to be the one to get it and hold it in that scene!)

Also please tell me if you are coming to the con and want a part as Magenta or don't want a part so I don't put you in (Nicole shut you're big fat mouth your performing!) I would love to put in as many of you as I can and I don't necessarily have to do TW myself so if you wanna do that sure let me know. But really someone else has to do Takeover my costume sucks though I did just get an awesome space wig from Liz!

You may respond here or better yet if we want to something creative and keep it a secret e-mail me at hilarymax@aol.com

Yayyyy can't wait!!

Hummmm

My pd LJ acct expired and Ron as yet to pay for it. I suppose I could pay for it myself but that would mean I would use the CC and he would be paying for it anyway as he pays the bills. Yeah I think I'll wait to see if he pays for it.

He can donate money to people's causes, film projects and random personal favors for friends but his wife who cooks his meals, washes his cloths and oh yeah gives him sex he can't even bother paying for my LJ!! Screw him!! ; )
