When you see this, post your favorite poem in your journal.

The Raven Is my all time favourite but it is longer than i want to post here so.

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

This is something I wrote in response to a question in TQC and it amuses me, so I decided to copy here so that it wouldn't get lost in the bowels of TQC never to be seen again.

Jane ran, she knew that if she could just get to the device everything would be okay. Rounding the corner she saw it sitting there just a few feet away. She sprinted forward arms outstretched, reaching for the device, when she was suddenly tackled from behind. She fell, her fingers just inches from the device. The killer whispered in her ear, "Time to die, sweetie." Jane kicked and screamed, wildly flailing her arms, desperately trying to active the device. Lighting flashed and she saw the shadow of the killer with his knife raised ready to plunge it deep into her, ending her life. She kicked harder and felt herself move forward a few inches and with all her might slammed her hand down on the device, activating it. A loud cry of "That was easy!" issued from the device and in a flash of light she was surrounded by cops who arrested the killer. There was another flash of light and she was in a courtroom watching the killer getting convicted. After a third flash she found herself in an observation room watching as the killer was strapped to the electric chair. Jane turned to walk away, smiling and thinking to herself, "Thank God I bought that easy button."

I Love October Baseball

A year ago, had you told me that I would be attending MLB post-season games this year, I probably would have slapped you thrice and had you committed to a mental health facility under the name Beth Ann Percowski. I mean who would have thunk that the Rays would be in the post season and that I would care. But here we are one game away from being American League Champions and going to the World Series.

The other night, after the 5 hour and 27 minutes long game 2 of the ALCS, I was driving home through downtown Tampa on the Crosstown Expressway and could see the empty surface streets and I kinda wish I had stopped and wandered through the empty street, cause how often does one get to see the city empty like that. Also while still in St. Pete I had to stop and get gas and I was going to just get enough to get home and then fill up the next day, but I was like "I haven't seen gas this cheap in a while, I'll go ahead and fill up." So, then of course I get home and the gas station I normally go has it for cheaper. Oh well, such is life. Oh, and most of you have already heard this complaint but what kind of 24 hour restaurant isn't serving breakfast at 3am?

On a quasi-related note, I find it kinda amusing, that a good portion of my family has said they don't want to go to a hockey game because they'll like it and end up spending all the non-baseball money on hockey. Every time someone says this though I remember some statistic I read some where that said that per capita hockey fans have a higher IQ than fans of other sports, and I'm just kinda like LOL.

I want to rename my journal but the only thing I have come up with to rename it so far that isn't taken is thegreatness and I'm not sure if I completely like that, so suggestion are welcome

Well that is really all I have to say for now. so TTFN

Sincerely,
Thomas Percowski

Oh, one more thing, there is a good chance my brother will be moving back to Florida soon, if things don't take off for him in LA.

WOW! I haven't updated in forever.

So what is up?
Well I woke up yesterday with a sore throat and a runny nose, and was not happy. Friday night I bought the movie Charlie Bartlett and then watched it 4 times this weekend, it is a very good movie and I highly recommend it. Also on Friday I bought post-season tickets so when the Rays make it to the post season I will be there. then thinking that even though I don't like football it might be interesting to go to a game once I went to look up how much a Bucs game ticket cost only to find out that every seat in Raymond James Stadium is sold to season ticket holders, which I think is just incredibly stupid of the Bucs to do.

In other news I have a ticket to Disney that I have to use by September 16th and no one to go with me and no money to spend there. but I have to go so I don't waste the ticket.

Back in March was my one year anniversary in my job, about may they finally got around to applying my annual raise and told me it would be retro-ed back to March. Well they still haven't given me the retro amount and a few months ago I requested a payout of some of my vacation hours cause I have WAY more than I will ever use and haven't received that either. Well two weeks ago after our last pay day I sent an e-amil to the head of HR and Payroll asking if i would be getting either of these soon because I could use the money (I didn't tell them it was to buy post season tickets). I had heard through the grapevine that the CEO approved them and I was to get the money, so along come payday and the money was nowhere to be seen. I was not a happy camper that day and the head of HR and payroll was very lucky he wasn't here.

also 6 more days!!!

anyways, I'll try to update more often.
