vacation happenings

So anyways... I was gonna write a bit before I left, but then I decided not to... I just posted that nice little pic and let it be.

Thursday, June 20
Got up, packed, and was ready WAY too early... so did various things to keep myself occupied... ended up mudding for awhile, finally found a friendly person to chat with who helped me a bit.

Left a bit early, but was trying to move up to an earlier flight... Got to the airport and couldn't find a damn parking spot in my usual areas... Finally got one, and got to the counter for cattlecar air.. bleh, lines... the person at the counter notified me that it would be $60 to switch to an earlier flight - but I was already there and figured wtf, so I agreed. Theyh couldn't get me on the one I wanted, but the next one was available.

So... down to the gate... breeze through security... and... wait for freaking ever... Called Ankh to let them know which flight I was on... Had voicemail, set up with Rodimus to do the token count for me... Waited... waited... waited...

Some woman with her kid was adamantly first in line... Which was really funny when they opened up boarding and she was asked to step aside for the extra security check...

Finally got on the plane, sat in the middle exit row and was able to stretch out.. flight wasn't full at all. The crew seemed a bit giddy... either they had gotten high before this flight, or they were on the end of their shift and out of it... anyways, some strange stuff... had a free beer...

Got off the plane, got to the next gate for my connection... a bit of a line... Got checked in, sat down to wait... and.. delay. they said 1/2 hour at first, but soon it was obvious it was going to be an hour... called Ankh a few times to let them know - was kinda frustrating having to leave messages - needed their mobile #.

Anyways, more and more and more waiting... saw this.. woman/girl... at first I thought she and this other girl were sisters... then I thought maybe they were mother/daughter... hard to tell... but she was very anorexic looking - not bad at first, but then she did something with her arm and you could see nothing but the bone jutting out in back...

Finally got on the plane... once again, someone who was adamant about going before me got the extra security check... serves them right.

Plan was full, but I managed to get a seat near the front and find a place for my bag in the overhead. had another beer.

Finally, flight lands... I hit the b-room, and walk outside... no Ankh... I realize we made some time in the air, so I call them and wait... and wait...

Finally, see Ankh's car... go past me... I'm waving, they're not seeing me... walk down the sidewalk trying to catch up to them... do, and we're off...

It's funny, within a minute I have them shedding clothing... Anyways, I'm hungry... we do some chinese... wasn't very good... then back to their place...

We play off and on all night, and it's way too early when we get up to leave... they drop me off at the rents.

Friday, June 21
Get to rents... chat for awhile, have breakfast... then crash... it's soooo nice to be out of state on vacation.

We hang around, do some little tasks, etc... we end up sitting on the porch outside cooking pork chops for dinner... it's good... then they watch Black Hawk Down while I play on the comp... I'm so into the game I don't realize how much time has gone, and they're off to bed. I talk briefly with RedneckNinja to confirm plans, play a bit more, then crash myself.

Saturday, June 22
Get up, have breakfast... then the torture begins.. for the next few hours, I'm up in the 120oF attic with no circulation moving dust-covered crap around and trying to get it down to ground level. Have to take a few breaks and down a bunch of water, since I show signs of heat exhaustion at several points. Finally finish, tag only 2 items to take with me, and take a shower. Have lunch, relax a bit, take a nap..

RedneckNinja calls, and they're almost there... I get my stuff ready... they come in and field the barrage of questions for a bit, then we head out... We go to Best Buy since I've got a coupon for DVDs... We look for awhile, then end up buying a few things. Then we head up to our old college town.

We take the back way instead of the interstate, and chat the whole way... Yakumo calls at one point, and I agree to call them back when we get in. We make it into town, and immediately head to BW3 for dinner... RedneckNinja's buying... and beer... call Yakumo, who shows up a bit later, and we just relax and chat for awhile... I go buy more beer (RN still paying)... then we head over to the other bar for a drink.. (Don't get Wise Ass amber...) and look briefly in the smoke shop (didn't have either of our selections) before moving on...

Next stop is another smoke shop - which was closed... then the store... got some snacks and more beer... 12 pack of Honey Brown for $7! we got 3... flirted with the cashier... and headed over to.. erm... J's? Anyway, no one's there, but RedneckNinja has a key... so we get in and set up for the night...

We started with watching Snatch, one of my purchases. Damn good movie. We then take a break to go on the porch as set off bottle rockets that were left over from the 4th last year... then someoone replies with crackers and such... so that just motivates us to let more off... finally some little neighborhood kid comes riding by and exchanges a few crackers for a few rockets... then we head back in for the next selection...

Again, it's mine, Chinatown... classic Jack... awesome movie... makes RedneckNinja's brain hurt, and even sends Yakumo for a loop... they bitch a bit about it, but admit it was good. More beer, more rockets...

It's getting late, and I figure it's time for Re-Animator, my last pick... I know, I know.. It's SO VERY BAD. But that's the point... you HAVE to SHARE pain like that... there is much groaning and gnashing of teeth, but we finish it. More rockets, and water instead of beer...

Then we start playing random unmarked videos that are lying about... some of them are really bad Girls Gone Wild volumes... we settle on The 69th Sense... yeah. It has this german redhead who screams perfection at me. Yakumo and I watch the whole thing (with obligatory fast-forwards) but RedneckNinja crashes a bit early... then Yakumo leaves, and I crash.

Sunday, June 23
Woke up way too early, put another random vid in for something to do... key rattles, and J walks in.. I wave... it's amusing, anywhere else and someone lying on your couch watching your videos on a sunday morning when you walk in would be cause for alarm... but they just walk in and ignore me. heh. Anyway, they scare the bejeebus outta RedneckNinja, and we spend some time chatting and such... Then we clean up what little mess we made and start more work.

RedneckNinja and Cletus stored their collective books at J's place. J's moving soon. Therefore, all the books have to go... boxes and boxes of books... so we spend quite awhile moving them out of the storage room, unboxing them, and stacking them in the truck of RedneckNinja's car. and the backseat... there's barely enough room for the two of us by the time we leave...

So we drive back to the rent's place for midday dinner... City Chicken... yum. lots of food, I'm stuffed when we're done... we chat a bit more, RN tries to eat a piece of apple pie, but can't finish - I don't bother trying... and they leave for home...

And I'm trapped.

They've got all sorts of stuff I'm supposed to take with me, including a bunch of coins and misc stuff... I quickly sort through it for the few things I'm interested in, and pack those.

So I call up Ankh and tell them to come get me, ostensibly to go see a movie and then have them take me to the airport in the morning, since they're closer... I tell Haha and Chichi, and they start in with their talks about me and my life and what I need to do better, etc.. bleh.

So anyways, we leave... go to Ankh's place to crash and play for a bit... then Union Jack's for dinner.. then back to veg to the tv, play, and such... I'm really out of it early, and sleep really well for most of the night...

Monday, June 24
wake up in time to play a bit, then shower and get to the airport.

I do the pre-checkin because there's a short line... I get to security and realize that the coins are going to cause a problem - sure enough, I'm asked to step aside for them to go through it by hand... they guy is really nice about it, takes all the coins and such out, runs everything back through the machine, and places everything back more or less where it was to begin with. Then the line for the gate checkin... bleh... and waiting... finally the line to get on the plane... it's packed... full.

I find another decent seat near the front and put my bag up - which hurts, those coins added alot. sit down, and promptly take a nap... I decide against a beer this early in the morning, and have juice instead... uneventful trip, land, bus out to parking, find car, drive home...

once I'm home, I take out some trash I forgot before I left, check the mail, and veg the rest of the day... take a nap, watch Wimbledon, mud, play games, etc...

no call from the tire place, so it's not in yet.

eat breakfast, lunch... then finally go to the store for more food... have a bit for dinner... RedneckNinja calls... Oz calls... chat with Rain... and eventually just go to bed and sleep pretty well.

That brings me up to date, I think... Missed a few things, but not too bad this time, I think.
