Time:10:49 pm.
Mood: mellow.
So I'm thoroughly bored with City of Heroes. It's a good game, but here's my problems with continuing to patronize the game.

1) I've gotten to 50.

I've leveled as far as I can go with my main character. And there's very little for me to do otherwise... I supppose I could get the new badges that came out.

2) I've gotten more than 100 badges, there's only 150 in the entire game.

You get them for various reasons, and granted this did take a while to get this many. But still, I have more than I'll probably ever need to meet any sort of requirement for any future easter eggs the game *may come out with. Maybe I should try another character.

3) I've gotten a 2nd character to 37, and a third character to 31.

What's worse is I'm bored of playing my main 3 characters, but the thought of starting a 4th character is kind of revolting.

On a good note, I popped in a mix CD of Hoobastank, 3 Doors Down, Jet, and Metallica, played it real loud and Mowed thru about 30% of Return to Castle Wolfenstein tonight. Had a blast doing that. Maybe I'll start doing that some more, playing NON-MMORPGs. Or maybe I'll just wait for EQ2. Not really sure, it seems that when I grow bored of an MMORPG I kinda have troubles walking away from them, mainly because you put SO MUCH work into them! How can I walk away from something I've put endless hours of my life towards? I don't know if I want to put myself thru that all over again with EQ2. It's MUCH easier with non-MMORPG games. Either they hold your attention long enough to beat them, or they don't. MMORPG games are different, where if you don't succeed in them, you've wasted your time, and even if you do.. you grow bored. :/

Oh well, had fun tonight anyhow with RTCW. :)

Mood: lethargic.
Well not much is new, I have the day off is nice. Just a quick update for now.

Weight
Well, after eating much less than I used to, and feeling hungry & or itching to snack on something throughout the day, I weighed myself.

175 lb. - after 8 days

I'm thinking my weight will not go down without exercise along with eating better. Dieting alone prob will not work for me. Than again, I have to be fair to myself. I went to a wedding this week, and it's only been 8 days.

My new plan is to slowly weed in working out. I'm going to try to go jogging one day this week. And continue going from there.

CoH Screenshot



I was able to fit into a shopping cart in CoH with one of my characters. All I need now is someone to push me around!

Here's pictures from me and Sean's adventure last night. Sean plays a Ice/Radiation Controller and I play a Spine/Regeneration Scrapper. Together we are Keith and Sean Kennephy (our last names are Kennedy and Murphy). Don't be to critical, this is the first time I've done anything like this!

I started playing around making people in City of Heroes, and started with Sean.





In City of Heroes all the heroes are ripped, I'm sure Sean won't mind the six pack.

So the wife (and others) has been on me for not making a journal entry in ages. So now seems like as good a time as any to start writing again. Like my journal entries of the past, I'll do this in segments for viewing ease.

Married life, much like un-married Life

Isn't that the truth. I think I've heard "How's married life?" as many times as I've tied my shoes. Luckily being married is very lovely indeed. Not much has changed, but I will say that after being married Rosemary and I share a new closeness. Married has really enhanced our life together. Today is also Rosemary and my 3 year anniversary of going steady!

City of Heroes

My new obsession. Think everquest but with superheroes. You can create many different heroes, and bring them from level 1 to 50 while doing missions, arresting thugs and bringing archvillians down! I already have a level 50 but I am still playing with some other characters as well. I'll probably post more about this later including pictures and things.

Blue Cross Blue Shield

Eleven months ago I started at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts. I really like it though the drive is a bit excessive at times. The benefits and overall easiness of the job really balances out any negative aspects there may be.

I was in the regulated department, and within a month I'll be moved into the local department. This is a really good thing and will broaden my knowledge of the products and make me more marketable. Hopefully it'll help when I apply to become a Quality Coach!

Weight
Today I way 175 pounds. Going to try and lose 10 pounds and see how I look then.

I'll post more later, just wanted to do a quick update.

Subject:Slamtech X-Mas Party
Time:8:07 am.
Mood:creative.
Last night Rosemary and I went to the Slamtech X-Mas party. It was very very fun seeing everyone again. I haven't seen Bob + Sean in a couple weeks, and I haven't my old Students in months! Bob gave out awards and I got athelete of the year! I was very proud of that and it felt nice to be recognized.

The only downer for the evening is being in a wrestling ring and playing around with guys again really made me wish I wasn't hurt. But still I can't forget how many times I questioned if I should just quit anyway, so me being hurt kind of finalizes things... at least temporarily.

On the way home from the party, I was telling Rosemary how I wish I could stay in the business somehow, but not wrestle. I've been throwing around a couple ideas

a) Manage
b) Make Websites for guys
c) Do an acting/selling camp Rose's idea

We'll see how it all pans out, at least in the meantime I have my keyboard. :)

Subject:Busy Erran Day
Time:8:14 pm.
Mood:accomplished.
Today I got quite a bit done. I stayed home from work due to my doctor's appointment. I left the house around 8:00am and got home around 6:30pm. In that time I saw my dad and his new puppy, got my hair cut, went to the doctors, and got a ton of shopping done.

Lately I've been playing with one of my x-mas presents Rosemary got for me that I opened early. My new keyboard (music)! It's awesome and with a how to book I'm slowly learning how to play. It's a blast.

Rosemary and I are going to make cookies for the upcoming X-Mas Parties, but before I go I'll wrap up with how my doctor visit went.

Doctor's Visit
After asking the doctor about my heart pain, back pain, and eye redness, the doc said...

Chest PainDoc says I'm fine, just probably some anxiety or asthma bringing on some chest pain. If it worsens to get back with her but most likely it's nothing at all.

Back PainIt's been confirmed that I have sciatica. Doctor says if I wait another 2 months before going back, and stretch before I wrestle, and go to physical therapy, than I only have a 25% chance of not getting sciatica again and it being worse next time. There's a 75% chance that even after I take all those procautions, I'd still get sciatica again if I keep wrestling.

Eyes Being Red OftenShe couldn't diagnose this one, she wants me to go to a optomotrist

Subject:Wrestling Update
Time:9:43 pm.
Mood: contemplative.
Back in the day, when wrestling was actually cool. Mic Foley went on TV Commercials with tomato sauce and ground beef all over his face and said... "Beefy!"

I'm actually updating my LJ only to say that I'm going to try to get into the regular flow of updating my site regularly. I'd like to list a long list of things right now that will get us all up to speed.

Wrestling

Wrestling has come to a screaming halt due to shooting pains that channel down my right side thru my back, ass, and thigh.

I fight with my depression and excitement with not being able to wrestle temporarily/permanately. I realize that wrestling was holding me back from my own self advancement, but I also realize that without wrestling I'm worried that I will not be able to find a hobby that fills me with whatever it is that I need from a hobby/pastime.

As I finally see matches of myself in WFA I realize that although talking about how shitty I was is fun, I really wasn't bad. I looked crisp, my matches made sense, and the crowd was 100% with/against me. Seeing matches that I'm really proud of makes me want to go back and do it all over again. After all, if I know I excel at it... why not rejoin it? It's somewhat of a comfort zone.

The other cold hard truth is I can make a career at Blue Cross Blue Shield, but I have to start getting my priorities straight and I can't put wrestling in front of my health, my family, my job, or my own personal growth any longer.

Time:3:13 pm.
Mood: anxious.
Around 10:30am today or so I emailed Kevin and Bob. The email said Justin was having a baby shower on the 20th, the same day NECW was in Hamden, CT. Around 2:00pm I got a call at work from Bob, saying that Kevin was upset and if I skip the show I might be fired because it's not a good reason to skip a show.

About an hour later Bob called and left a message on my voicemail saying he was sorry to sound so serious on his previous phone call. He said again that Kevin was upset, but he wasn't and he understood. He closed with the notion that he knew I was upset about certain things, and we should talk about them tonight when we have a chance.

I'm writing this journal entry mainly to formulate my thoughts before Bob and I talk.

My trouble are that 1 year ago I liked wrestling and wanted to excel at it. Trouble is now that I have, I want to back off quite a bit. I train/teach 3 or 4 times a week. I have a show every weekend. Many wrestlers in New England, and abroad would die to be in both/either NECW and WFA as well as get paid to train others how to wrestle. This isn't the life for me though.

My friend Justin's girlfriend Renee is having a baby. He's having a shower and asked Rosemary and I to come. I than found out about the NECW show. I let Kevin know as soon as I could, and unfortunately I look like the asshole.

In the wrestling business, it seems like you're either in 100% or you're a chump. Either you make incredible sacrifices, or you are looked down upon by your peers. I have to decide which route is for me, and in a lot of ways I've already decided.

A part of me feels like I almost owe it to Bob to work for NECW and Slamtech. He's given me a lot in the wrestling business as well as been a great friend to me. I feel like I would be betraying him if I left now. At the same time, I'd like to have a "normal" life and go to college. What to do, what to do.

I've missed countless events, birthday parties, get-togethers, special occasions for shows that I've lost money on. In the grand scheme of things, if nothing comes of wrestling, what will I have to show for my sacrifices? No one will remember me, and I'll have a battered body.

On the other hand, wrestling is fun, without a doubt. I do like wrestling, and I like wrestling in good places. Which is why I've decided not to quit, and just let things take their course. I've made adjustments in my slamtech schedule to accomodate Rosemary, and I was going to work shows unless an important event happened. If anyone (NECW in this case) couldn't swing that, than I would quit/be fired and that'd be the end of it.

We'll have to see how this pans out.

Subject:Wrestling questions
Time:12:43 pm.
Wow how things change.

When I began my journey into the wrestling business, the only day that I could count on having something wrestling related in the week was Tuesdays. That being the day that I'd drive to New Bedford to train with Matt and Vin. Nowadays the only day that I can count on having a break from wrestling is Tuesdays. Every other day is subject to shows, slamtech, and other random wrestling gatherings.

Often I go back and forth about wrestling in general. Sometimes it's the reason (that and Rosemary) why I wake up every day. Sometimes it drives me to long gloomy depressions. Lately though, things have been on the up and up. WFA and NECW are both using me well. WFA is beginning me on the road to turning babyface, which couldn't make me happier. NECW has be in a great spot as the "Opening Match Champion", complete with trophy + promo.

Rosemary and I had a long talk late last night about how she is stuck between some multicolored tights and a hardplace. She stuggles with being supportive of wrestling, and putting her foot down with us spending time together.

It should be said that I don't feel like Rosemary is holding me back. I like spending time with Rosemary, and wrestling has been taking so much time that everything else has been neglected in some regard. Slamtech itself is between 15 and 20 hours taken away from everything else in the week. Shows usually take between 1 or 2 whole days out of the week. For the average wrestler with no serious job, girlfriend, family, or other commitments it may not sound like a lot. For a guy with a 40+ hour a week job, a fiancee', 2 pets, a large family, and a bad video game habit, life can be stretched thin at times.

I've tried to look to Rosemary for help in what to do to fix this major problem in my life right now. Unfortunately she feels to guilty to sit down with me and figure all of this out. She feels selfish. I feel like I'm neglecting everything else. It's all bad and it has to be taken care of.

I've considered dropping wrestling altogether. However I feel I'm very good at it, and WFA and/or NECW may be on TV soon. I want to be somebody, maybe not Ric Flair, or Randy Savage, but somebody. I want to have some great things to show my kids when I get older. Wrestling IS fun, I just wish it was easier to time manage.

I've considered quitting Slamtech. I must admit that I couldn't feel more terrible about that idea. Bob has given me so much and if I walk away I feel like I'd betray him and stabbed him in the back. I've also considered quitting but giving Bob a very large notice, something like 6-10 weeks. This should give him plenty of time to find a suitible replacement, make any changes he'd need, and more importantly he'd know I wasn't out to get/screw him. Even still Slamtech is a great learning enviroment, is fun most of the time, and the extra under the table money is a nice surprise at the end of the week. BAH! What to do.

Hopefully soon I'll have all this figured out, either way I'm glad I got typed down.

Subject:update of doom
Time:12:37 pm.
Mood: bored.

Time for a lengthy update.



First off, it's worth saying that I've been neglecting my LJ since I've been very busy lately. As it is, I'm writing this at work. Here goes!

Engagement



I'm happy to say that Rosemary and I are going to be making it official. She now wears a ring on her finger that she nicknamed her "Sparkley". Our wedding date is 6/20/04, and we will be making a wedding website soon.

A funny note is how the engagement went down. I bought the ring right after work and headed home. I beat Rosemary home by minutes and once she got in the house I was already sweating bullets. I wasn't so nervous about her saying yes/no, I was nervous that she would discover the ring before I asked her and ruined the surprise.

I decided to ask her that day because if I didn't do it now, that chance of her finding the ring was very good. I tried to coax her to go for a walk in a romantic spot, or at least let me take her out to dinner or ANYTHING but all my pleas went unheard. Rosemary wanted to stay in and that was that.

I decided to sit in my favorite chair and figure out a clever way to ask Rosemary. While thinking about how to ask her, Rosemary came over and gave me a fantastic kiss. While we were kissing, her hand was about 2 inches from the pocket holding the ring. Out of fear I got up quickly and said the most romantic things I could muster and proposed.

Her first reaction was shock, soon after she was dissappointed with how I asked her. :/ She was hoping for something more romantic. Leave it to me to blow it. This whole thing bothered me a lot, I was hoping to do something great for her, and I killed it. Luckily I had a plan.

My plan for how to fix the situation came with a solution to a problem. I got here a ring in size 7 and Rosemary is a 6.25. So first we had to get it fixed. The ring was fixed in 2 days and now I decided to repropose.

Beach fun



Rosemary and I decided to take advantage of a Saturday without wrestling, and go to Scarborough, RI beach. This is where I decided to repropose.

After spending some time sunbathing I asked Rosemary to go for a walk. I knew 2 things, 1 I didn't want to ask her in the waves in fear that I'd lose the ring, and 2 I didn't want to do it in front of people.

I remembered a spot on the shore down a ways from the main beach. After walking a ways Rosemary wished to go back. I was most insistant on her going further down to where I wanted to repropose. After a LOT of convincing we continued down. We were barefoot and there were a lot of sharp rocks and glass around so she was unhappy about continuing. I wasn't going to allow this to slow me down though, I ruined one proposal and I won't ruin another! So finally we go to the spot, we kissed and I again surprised her with her ring, this time sized correctly.

All in all a great time at the beach, although she was very burned afterwards.

Wrestling in Uxbridge



After 2000 flyers, 30 hours of hard work and 35 bucks in advertising. Our show in Uxbridge was ready to take off. After watching the show on tape the show wasn't what I wanted it to be, and we lost money on the show. On the upside my mother, brother Mike, Mike's girlfriend Kellie, my father, Dad's girlfriend Annie, Rosemary's mom, her boyfriend, Rosemary's brother Sean, Marcia + Stephanie from work, and their husbands got to see me wrestle. My match with Mike was a decent match, again I went in wishing for more.

Slamtech



Slamtech is finally reopening after a long hiatus. We will be having an open house on August 10th where we will hopefully attact some new bodies into the gym. Without getting into details in a public forum, I've been given incentive to put more time into Slamtech, I do hope that this takes off!

Planning for the wedding.



Rosemary and I have had many a discussion (and a handful of fights) over planning for our wedding. Another concern is that my mother will swoop in and try to take over the wedding. Up to now Mom's been great, I hope that continues.

Also we have the initial wedding invitation list taken care of. We are inviting most of our family and some friends as well. 123 guest + Rosemary and I makes the 125 maximum we were looking for. We're going with a picnic theme and we're saving 100 bucks a week in hopes of paying for it all. We'll probably put the rest of the tab on a credit card, and continue paying 100 bucks a week after the wedding till we have it all paid off.

Wrestling woes



As you probably know, I often write in my LJ about how wrestling sucks and I should quit. Well my feelings today, and I say today because they change by the day, is tha it doesn't suck at all. But still it takes up a lot of time and I think it's slowing my process at life. If I wasn't wrestling I would have the time to be going to college part time. I could have a part time job and put in another 10-30 hours a week After taxes that'd be around $6500 a year. Money I could really use during wedding planning time.

I've considered 2 options. Wrestle until Craig comes home from Iraq, than join him in going to college and leaving wrestling altogether. The other option is to be a ref. That would keep me in the business and the loop, but no training, and more time to myself outside of shows. Oh well... the constant struggle continues. :)

Subject:4th
Time:9:30 am.
The 4th didn't really pick up until I got to my moms. To bring us up to speed, I woke up, played Ratchet Clank (which gets 4 of 5 stars!), showered and headed to Moms.

My mom's was a good time. A very small gathering at the McKenna camp, which was FINE by us! We got to lay out in the sun, have Chinese food, take the boat out, and go swimming! Rosemary and I had some great conversation while out on the boat and it was very very nice. Around 6ish we packed up and drove to Al Spader's house.

We were a bit reserved at first because outside of the lockerroom, we haven't spent much of any time with anyone who we knew would be there. After about 10 or 20 seconds that burned away however. Everyone was super nice and friendly and as predicted, Justin talked in the Costa voice and all was well.

After watching shitty wrestling, WFA from Derry, watching Halo, watching backyard wrestling (INCLUDING BRYAN FURY w/ BRACES AND MULLET***) we did some swimming, and finally went home. At first, and without Team Slamtech with me I was pretty shy about going but I was soooooooooo (x5) glad I did. I wish I could've slept over but today (5th) Rosemary and I are going to put a deposit down on our Wedding place. If we missed this appointment I would of been sacrificed to the nupital(sp?) gods.

Time to go in the shower, later skaters!

I thought I'd update my journal so Justin wouldn't be mad at me. haha Unfortunately, I don't have too much to talk about, so I'll start with making a plan for myself with chores & things to buy.

----

Chores for the next 2 weeks.



1. I need to set aside time to buy Rosemary's birthday presents.

2. I need to clean Linus's cage

3. I need to clean my apartment

4. I need to clean my car

5. I need to put "Buy Tickets online! w/ Paypal" on www.slamtech.net"

6. I might as well put "Buy 8x10 of KL!" on www.klmurphy.net

7. I need to do another kayfabe journal entry on www.klmurphy.net

8. I need to do an interview with the Blackstone Valley Tribune

9. I need to iron things out with Jim from the Matty in the Morning show


10. I'd like to save all of the entries from my L.J. thus far so in the unlikely event that L.J. crashes, I don't lose everything.

11. I need to figure out a cost for our wedding so we can save enough money to pay for it.

BAH! Lots to do! It's actually not as bad as it seems, Rosemary's birthday presents can be picked up in one night. The cleaning of Linus's cage, my car, and my apartment can be done in less than 3 hours. The paypal gimmick won't take much time at all, and the other stuff I'll probably do whenever.

I also have to do some things that are sure to cost me some coin.

Things to buy in the next month or so



1. I need to get my car fixed (It runs fine but the emissions light is on)

2. I need to BUY Rosemary's birthday presents.

3. I need to get a ring so I can get engaged!

4. I need to buy new boots for work. Mine are beginning to fall apart.

5. I need to buy new sneakers. Mine are beginning to fall apart.

6. I need to buy new wrestling boots, Mine HAVE fallen apart and are now held together with tape.

7. I'd like to buy the new Gameboy Advance, I'm trying to save Snapple caps right now so I can get it that way. Even my Dad is saving them now! (Thanks Dad!)

So what else is new? I'm promoting the show in Uxbridge on July 20th. I'm very worried that we won't draw flies. I'm hopeful however. As of today Slamtech doesn't have any place to train at. We will have a place in September, but until then things are up in the air right now. Bob is scrambling trying to get something together, but to no avail yet.

Rosemary and I are well, she's home sick today... or at least that's what she told her supervisor. She's playing hookey so she can stay home and have a mental health day. I guess you can do that when you get 20 days off a year. I on the other hand, get about 10. :( The only shining light about my job was that I got out early in July (I'd work 9-2 with a lunch and get paid for an 8 hour day) but it looks like my boss has taken that away... ::sigh::

This weekend is the July 4th weekend. Rosemary and I have like 5000 things to do, and I'm not sure what I'll actually be doing... some choices are.


Al-extravaganza. (Night)


Al of the Shaypesters is having a bash at his house.

PROS
Very fun time
Justin will probably talk like Jeff Costa
Swimming, alcohol, food, fun, video games.

CONS
90mins-2hours away
I'll probably end up playing lots of video games, which will bore the @#$% out of Rosemary


Steak and other eats with Mom (Day)



PROS
Quality time with the Moms
Great food!

CONS
70 mins away
Probably get annoyed by Jasper scratching at my legs
Rosemary will probably get annoyed by Jasper scratching at her legs


Boston Fireworks with Mom (Night)



PROS
Radical Light Show
Fun time with the Moms

CONS
Driving into Boston on the 4th is the shits.
I'll be out late


Spending time with Rosemary's Family



PROS
No drive
Fun time chilling with the boys
Probably a lot of video game playing going on
Rosemary will get to see Chris before he goes down to Florida for the Summer.

CONS
None apparent, although depending on how much time we spend with Rosemary's family, we won't be able to see team shaypesters or the moms.


That's it for now, right now I'm at work with Alaina. Mary and Marcia are both on vacation, and I'm stuck alone... with Alaina. ::gulp:: deep breaths....
