Happy Christmas Cleveland

The Cleveland skyline shows the holidays are here!

I was lucky enough to get some passes to Winterfest 2008. Narm, his girlfriend and I got to sit on the square and see the parade (of horses). Superior was littered with, well, what happens after horse eat what they eat. After the parade, fireworks lit up Public Square. The show was great. I will say I miss the old tree lighting with carols, the ice skating rink and Santa lighting downtown Cleveland. Francesca somewhat nicely insisted we get some Starbucks. Since when recently am I able to pass that place up? Pfft!, but whatevah! We were also invited to the after party at Cadillac Ranch. The night was nice, enjoy the pictures!

Fireworks Over The Flats

A packed Superior Viaduct. Some people came out around 4:30pm to stake their claim. They may have been entertained by looking into the apartments and condos.
One of the first big crowd pleasers. A lot of “ooohs” and “aahhs”.
We had great seats from my balcony.
It’s amazing how they can make the fireworks so colorful.
One of the last big displays before the grand finale. It was a great show. Thanks to everyone who made it happen.

Shut Your Mouth When You’re Talking To Me!

I love “Wedding Crashers”. TBS played it twice last week, I caught the second half of the first showing then watched the whole thing.

Because I couldn’t stand to see it with all of the commercials, I pulled out the DVD and watched it again yesterday. The movie cracks me up and I have to admit seeing things I haven’t seen each time I watch it. I end up even laughing at jokes I didn’t catch during my other 500 times of seeing the film. Hey, I’m not slow, maybe I just don’t have the best attention span.

I love the line “I hope you flip your bike over and knock your two front teeth out, you selfish son of a b#*ch!” I laugh uncontrollably each time I hear it because it reminds me of someone. It truly is a classic movie, by my standards, I’m up for watching it anytime.

By the way, I’m really looking forward to the 4th. Tonight, I’m sure I’ll see fireworks over the city from my apartment, I’m sure I’ll post some pictures. The Cleveland Orchestra is playing a free concert downtown. I hope the weather holds off. On Friday night, fireworks will light up the skies from the Flats. My parents and their friends are coming up for the big event. We’ll have a great “seat” for those. I’ve been waiting for this weekend since I moved into my place.

More good news… tomorrow is my Friday! Whoohoo!
