Monday – The final encounter!

Monday was my final day in Sac.  My flight was scheduled to depart at 9 pm so I had essentially the whole day to spend with everyone.  I had to check out by 11 am so I made sure my alarm went off and that I had all my shit together.  It never seems to fail.  Whenever I travel, even when I don’t buy anything, I end up not having enough room to put all my stuff back.  I eventually pulled it off, but much swearing occurred. >.<

Zam was going to pick me up once I checked out and I was just going to spend the day with him and Ari until Soth got off work.  Him and I were then going to go to dinner and hang out until my flight left.

I called Zam, got his voicemail.  I left him a message then texted Ari.  I apparently woke her up >.>.  She said that Zam was on his way to come get me.  Woot!

When I got to the house Ari was almost ready to go.  It was decided that we would go out to breakfast then come back and chill out at the house until Soth got off work.  He told me he was coming straight from work.  We expected him around 5 ish.

Breakfast turned out to be at IHOP.  Told you it was an Arioch approved restaurant.  Here is where I found out the lamest thing.  I have celiac disease.  This means I cannot have gluten.  Other than cheating a little bit with some cheese sticks on Saturday I had been really good all weekend.  Well IHOP makes their omelettes with their pancake batter.  This is done to make the eggs “fluffy.”  I had to specifically ask to have my non-gluten choice of a meal to have the gluten taken out of it. >.<  Seriously people.  I already have to scour the menus to find SOMETHING that I will eat that doesn’t have gluten.  So when I find something that SHOULDN’T have gluten just to find out it does makes me sad in the pants.

You don’t want me sad in the pants.

So yeah, fast forward past my ham, bacon and provalone omelette (sans pancake batter) and we were back at the house.  Zam had some stuff to do so Ari and I decided to watch a movie.  We went through her movie collection and it was discovered that I had never seen Heavy Metal.  Yes I know, I am fail.  Growing up I wasn’t allowed to watch a lot of things and when I got older and could, I either didn’t know about them or wasn’t really all that interested.  So yes there is a ton of pop culture stuff that I am completely ignorant of.  I really don’t feel like im missing anything so whatever.

After the movie (which was pretty awesome) we played Flux.  It is a really interesting card game that has the rules change every hand.  It is almost impossible to plan how to win.  A lot of it just plain dumb luck.  Ari apparently has several different flavors of this game.  The version we played with was Monty Python.  It was hilarious.  There was a card where if you used an outrageous accent you got to play extra cards.  I *think* you were supposed to keep the same accent.  Ari kept changing her accent.  It was hilarious.  The first time we played I didn’t use one when the card was played.  It didn’t stop me from teasing Ari about hers. 😀

After a bit we quit Flux and started playing Gin Rummey again.  Zam eventually made his way out of his office and joined us.  We had been playing for a while when Soth came over.  He played  rummey with us for a hand or two then we switched back over to Flux.  He actually ended up winning that game too.  It was by sheer luck though.  One of the rules that got placed was you had to play every card in your hand.  Ari had the goal card that made it where the cards that Soth had played made him win.  Needless to say, he was in a good mood. 🙂

We still had a bunch of pictures left on the camera and I realized that I had no pictures of Ari and I so we trouped outside to take pictures to try to get the film used up.  Several pictures were taken of Ari and I.  Some more were taken of Soth and I and a picture was taken of Ari and I kissing Soth.  He has been talking about wanting to see that picture since it was taken.  I was informed by Ari last night that she took the pictures in to be developed yesterday.  So as soon as she goes back to pick them up I will have them :).

Soth and I ended up going to dinner at the restaurant across the street from my hotel.  It wasn’t too bad of a place.  Our waiter had really fucked up teeth, which Soth made jokes about.  Such a meanie I know.  I gave him the whole guilt trip for picking on the guy so don’t worry on that regard.  After dinner we drove out to the airport and just chilled out talking in the parking lot until it was close to the time I had to check in. 

I had a pretty uneventful flight home.  Lots of text messages sent out to friends.  In between flights I was chatting with Tir on the phone and filling him in on my day.  In case you hadn’t noticed I like to talk.  I like to repeat everything to everyone I talk to.  My friends are used to it.  I like to think it is just part of my charm ^_^

My flight from SF to SD actually landed early so I had to wait for a bit at the airport for Andrew & Kate to come pick me up since I couldn’t call them until the plane landed.  It wasn’t too bad though.  I got to regale them with stories the whole way home. 😀

So that was my trip.  I know I had a blast and I can’t wait until I can go back. 😀  Once I get pictures I will post a few on here (once I get approval from the people in them) and the rest will go up on my facebook page.  I am going to try to get a response post up tomorrow for Del’s non-meme post on top of Screenshot Friday.

Super Sunday – The Seconded!

I got flack for not talking more about the train ride in my last post.  So let me fill you in a bit more.

As we first pulled away from the station Soth decided he was going to be weird and started waving frantically at the people we were passing.  This was done with a complete idiotic grin on his face too.  The best part was the fact that people smiled and waved back.

While cruising down the track he started talking smack about the people on bikes riding next to the train.  It was hilarious and I joined in with him.  We also waved at the bikers.

When we first got on the train we were facing towards the door that we entered on.  This put our backs to everyone else.  Soth gets motion sickness if he is facing backwards.  We ended up having to change chairs because the train was going in the opposite direction than what we were faced in.  Thus began the game of musical chairs.  Each time we had to change seats we bounced on the seats.  I did tell you that they were bouncy.  For some reason Ari found our bouncing hilarious and kept giggling.

When we switched seats the first time I couldn’t get the window to go down.  Soth tried but couldn’t get it to move either.  It wasn’t until the return trip that he was able to get it to move down.  I think he almost took it as an affront to his manliness that he couldn’t open the window.  Silly males.

After the train ride we went back to the cars to make our way back to Ari & Zam’s house.  Tel joined Soth and I in his car.  I have found over the past months that Soth and I like a lot of the same music.  So while him and I were singing along to the radio Tel was just in the back trying to figure out what song was playing on the radio.  At one point we were sitting at a left arrow and I had my window down.  I was singing along to a Linkin Park song and some dude pulls up next to us.  He is all gangstered out and is just looking at me like I’m insane.  I of course smiled and said hi to him.  The dude busted out laughing and our light turned green.  We laughed in the car as well.

When everyone was back at the house we decided to start playing some games.  We started out with Apples to Apples.  This is a game where you really find out what your friends think you like.  We discovered that Ari thinks babies are chewy and Zari thinks boy scouts are spunky.  I personally like to pick cards that make me laugh the most.  They don’t always have to be exactly what the green card calls for, but it is my choice so :-p.

I ended up winning that game 😀

After Apples to Apples we played a drinking game called “What the F*ck” only we weren’t drinking.  We found out that Ari requires more than $500 to get naked in a pig pen and that even for $1 million I will not cut off my toe and eat it.  I wonder what that game would be like had we been drinking.  Some of those questions were 3 drink ones.

Oh and before I forget.  Tel is who you need to see if you need to hide and/or dispose of a body.

Just saying.

After What the F*ck we played this card game called Wizard.  It took a bit to figure out but it was a lot of fun.  Zari ended up winning it.  The funny thing was Soth was so competitive about it.  Zam sat back quietly calculating his wins, Tel sat there with a grin on his face, Ari was half there and I was just quiet.  Soth though, was pissy.  I teased him about it then, I teased him in the car and I am teasing him now. 😀  Makes me want to beat him at cards.

That night was Soth’s birthday dinner.  Because I was feeling grimy I wanted to shower before dinner.  Soth was volunteered to take me to my hotel so I could shower and change then we would meet everyone else at Outback for dinner.  We get to my hotel room and the fucking key doesn’t work again.  I tried it several times, Soth tried it, it wouldn’t budge.  So I left him with all my crap at the door and went down to the lobby to get a new key.  The dude was helping to check in another person so I waited.  Then as the dude left he started to help me.  The phone rings, he STOPS helping me and starts talking on the phone.  Now it is one thing if it was an important call, but the people on the phone wanted to know how to order pizza.  When you have a customer in front of you and the phone rings you politely ask them to hold, finish up with the person you were helping THAT IS STANDING RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU then go back to your phone call.  Grrrr

He re-keyed the same damn card and I made my way back up to my room.  Did I mention I was on the top floor?  Yeah >.>  I get there and the key doesn’t work.  Soth tried it again.  Still no go.  This time I made Soth come with me.  The clerk ended up closing down the office to come open up my room.  He gets up there and the first time he tries the key the fucking door opens. FML seriously.

At this point we are now 15 mins behind so I am in panic mode to shower and get ready.  Soth plops on the bed and starts watching TV and I quickly showered.  I grabbed his presents and with still dripping hair we left.  We had another really fantastic conversation on our way to the restaurant.  Soth is a really great guy and I am very happy I got to spend so much time with him. 🙂

It was decided that dinner was going to be at Outback so that Ari could have steak.  Even though Soth and I were running late, we showed up the same time as everyone else.  We walked in and everyone started teasing Soth about having wet hair (which he didn’t) and thoroughly making him blush.  Was totally cute.

We got our table and had Soth open his presents.  Now my original plan was to get him a blue sequined thong.  I couldn’t find one for the life of me.  I finally settled on a blue leopard print one.  What was supposed to happen was he was supposed to pull it out and have his gift card fall out of it so that everyone would see it.  At that time a picture was supposed to be taken.  It was kind of dark in the restaurant so I am not sure how well the picture picked up his blush, but it was there.  It was more of a “Why do they do this to me” with a mental facepalm happening verses an embarrased one.

Good times : )

Towards the end of the night we all got together for a group picture.  Zari was standing behind me with his hands on my shoulders.  I grabbed them and put his hands on my breasts.  He yelped.  It was hilarious.  I was vastly amused.

After dinner we all said our goodbyes.  I was dropped off at my hotel (where it took me 5 tries before the damn key worked) and my day ended.

I will try to get Monday’s events done and posted soon. 🙂

Super Sunday! – The first installment

Sunday ended up being my favorite day in Sac.  This was the day we got to be all touristy and when I would be able to hang out with everyone.

Oh and go on a train ride 😀

Zari was driving down from Chico and was supposed to be at Ari & Zam’s house around 10:30 am.  Soth was going to be meeting us there around that time and Tel was just going to meet us in Old Town Sac.  Zam picked me up and brought me back to the house.  Zari and Soth were both there already.  As Zari already mentioned I popped in, hugged everyone then punched them.  I didn’t punch Soth on Saturday because his daughter was there.  She didn’t need to see someone hitting her daddy. 😀  What I think was funny was I really don’t think they believed that I would punch them.

Well HA!  I told you I would.

By the way, Zari is totally cuddly.  I just wanted to sit and cuddle with him.  I would have if I wouldn’t have thought it would have made him feel uncomfortable.

We sat around waiting for Ari to finish getting ready.  We chit chatted and just got any awkwardness out of the way.  No matter how much you might feel you “know” someone you have met online there is still a bit of awkwardness when you first meet them in person.  Sometimes it ends very quickly and with others it can last the entire time.

Luckily it wasn’t long, if at all.  At least on my side.  I can’t answer for anyone else.  I was instantly at home with everyone.

We ended up having to take two cars so I got to ride with Soth. 😀  It was the first time we actually got a chance to chat alone and we had a very nice discussion.  He also showed off his phone.  It has Chuck Norris facts on it.  I giggled appropriately, as one should when reading Chuck Norris facts.

We got to Old Town Sac and Tel was waiting for us at the parking structure.  I hugged and punched him several times.  As only appropriate for Tel.

We made our way to the stores and just had fun checking out stuff.  I frankly was surprised I didn’t end up buying a bunch of stuff.  I think I was sufficiently distracted by everyone playing with all the toys in the stores we went into.  At one point the boys found light sabers and Soth had to bring out his light saber app on his phone.  So not only were they playing with the toys they were able to have noises too.  ^_^  Good times, good times.

We eventually made it to Evangeline’s and I personally had a blast in there.  We found the three wolf moon shirt and I posed for a picture despite not being cool enough to really wear the shirt.  I am convinced that just by holding it up to my chest that I was even cooler than normal.  It might explain some things that happened over the weekend . . . hmmm.

As with most stores like this, there was an 18+ section that Ari and I found our way to.  Zam soon found us in there as well as Tel.  We had been in there for a bit looking at stuff when Zari found us and exclaimed “I should have known I would find you guys in here.”  Soth never did make an appearance in the special room so I am not sure where he was hiding while the rest of us were in there.  What I found most amusing about that room was all the condoms had expired like 10 years ago.  No I wouldn’t have used them anyway (really, you DO NOT want to use gag condoms EVER) but the fact that they were so old just made me laugh.

I almost bought this:

Yummah

I wanted to.  I didn’t.  I wanted to though.

I still think I should have. *pouts*

When we finished perusing the store we decided that we were ready for food so we made our way to this bar/pub place there called Fanny Ann’s.  Everyone apparently knew the place and liked it.  I ordered a BBQ chicken sandwich and fries.  When I go to bars I like to chat with the bartender to find out new drinks that I should try.  That day I felt like a beer so I asked the bartender to recommend one for me.  The one he gave me was REALLY good and I cannot remember the damn name.  Sorry! >.>  I know it started with a S, but I cannot remember anything more.

Ari found us seats up on the top floor (3 stories) and we all chilled out talking about the music playing.  Lots of songs that I hadn’t heard since high school.  We all got our food and starting nomming.  I am a really slow eater (I had to train myself to do it and now I am stuck with it) so I think most everyone was done by the time I finished.  While we were sitting and waiting for everyone to finish Ari nabbed a pen from me and wrote on the wall something about Shadow Rising being there and listed our character names.  I’m not exactly sure what she wrote (it was small and I am kind of blind) but we officially marked the place.  There was talk about all of us getting together at a SR get together in TX to meet up with all the people who live there.  I personally think it would be a blast.

After lunch we walked to the leather store so Ari and I could smell the leather.  Sooooo delicious.   Apparently everything in that store was $20 or less.  I should have bought a leather jacket, but oh well.  Mmmm leather.

Oh!  Where was I?

Yeah!

We hit up a few more touristy shops as we made our way over to where the train station was supposed to be.  Tel said that he “thought” that you had to purchase tickets in the museum.  So off we went to the museum.  Turns out Tel was wrong (go figure) and we had to purchase tickets at the ticket booth near the station.  We talked about viewing the museum, but we decided not to.  We hoofed it over to the ticket station just to find it closed.  Imagine my dismay at thinking I wasn’t going to ride a train.  It was not a pretty picture.  Luckily I found someone and asked about the trains.  She told me that the box office was just closed for another 30 mins and the next train would be back in 45.  Yay!  We decided to hit up the shops that were still closed when we arrived then come back and ride the train.

One of the places was a toy shop.  The clerk/owner was very chatty and I talked with her for a bit.  Avatar was playing on the TV in there and we all started discussing which movie it was taken from.  There were several theories, but I don’t think anyone changed their original thought.

I still haven’t seen that movie. >.>

We walked back to the station and the ticket booths were now open.  Tickets purchased, we moved over to the wall and just hung out until it was time to get in line to board.  I think I was hanging off everyone for a while.

I am a very touchy feely person.  I love to hug my friends or touch them.  If someone is obviously very uncomfortable over me touching them, or says something, then I hold off, but I usually will keep on doing it.  Zam was weird about it at first, but by Saturday he was hugging me back. ^_^

The train pulled up and we piled in.  We opted for the non-cattle car and nabbed seats on the side of the train next to the river.  Ari and Zam sat together.  Tel & Zari found their own seats and Soth and I sat together.

The day was just absolutely gorgeous.  There was a really nice breeze flowing through the window.  Soth and I were having really awesome conversation (and bouncing up and down on the seats).  It was just a really nice time.  I really do think it was my favorite part of the entire trip.

I just realized how long this post has gotten so I will end it here and finish up the rest of Sunday in another post.

Saturday update

The plan for Saturday was for Arioch and I to go shopping for Soth’s birthday present with his BFF Olivia.  She was going to pick us up and we would go to Frys.  Since Olivia had other plans for the rest of the day she was going to drop us off at the mall near Soth’s home so we could bug him for a ride back to Ari’s house.

Zam picked me up around 9 am I think (I honestly cannot remember).  As Ari was finishing getting ready I checked up on my email.  Olivia popped in and we all piled into her car.  Apparently she had logged into the game the night before and some interesting conversations were happening in gchat.  She regaled us with these stories as we made our way to Frys.

Gift card purchased.  Swedish fish & mana pot consumed (by Ari) and we were off to the mall.  Apparently Ari gets grumpy when she has nothing but sugar so we opted to get lunch.  What did we have?

Panda of course!

😀

Seriously, if you didn’t know the answer to that question then you really don’t know me very well.

I was unhappy with the fact that my kung pao chicken had neither kung nor pao to it.  I don’t think I have ever had such bland “spicy” food before.  Ari’s food wasn’t that tasty either so I think it was just that particular Panda.

After nomming we started making our way around the mall.  The plan was to walk the entire length, window shop, giggle at weird people and eventually call and bug Soth for a ride home.

In the food court there was this cart that had a bunch of toys on it.  One of the toys was this doll that bounced and waved its arms.  It creeped me the fuck out.  This of course meant I had to show Ari. 😀

The cart next to the toy cart was one of those hair styling carts.  They offer to style your hair in order to get you to purchase their gizmos.  Now I personally hate being bugged by people trying to sell their shit to me as I walk by.  If I wanted to buy their crap I would walk up to the cart and start looking.  One of the girls hawking the wares on the cart starts talking to Ari and I as we are walking by.  It is one thing to talk to someone if they are just strolling along, it is quite another when they are obviously in a conversation.  She had the temerity to interrupt us to ask if we were interested in the crap she had to sell.  I immediately said (in a rather bitchy tone I might add) that no we were not interested and went back to my conversation with Ari.  About 20 or so minutes later we ended up walking by the cart again on our way to another store when the same person interrupted our conversation AGAIN.  I turned to her and said “No we aren’t interested.  We weren’t interested the first time we told you no.”  Again this was said in a VERY bitchy voice.  It was actually kind of funny to me how shocked she was at my reaction.  Yes I get irritated that quickly.

We ended up going through the entire mall.  I think my favorite part was the bath and body works store.  There were soooooo many candles to smell.  The watermelon one and one of the vanilla ones were my favorite.  A close runner up was this amber one.  I ended up getting the amber one in lotion form.  I had some on yesterday and I was just enveloped with the scent.  Mmm mmm mmm.  We eventually made our way to one end of the mall that had a couch next to the directory.  We sat for a few reading the cheesy pick up lines on the wall (Anchor Blue store had them printed on the windows) and giggling.  Ari wanted to know if the mall had a particular store in it and we just missed it so she was checking out the directory.  As she turned around to come back to the couch she tripped over the end table on the edge of the couch, banged up her shin pretty good and plopped on the couch next to me.  We checked out her leg and a huge bump was already forming.  To be fair, she did warn me that she was a klutz.

Turns out that Soth was at the Best Buy at the edge of the mall.  We made our way out of the mall and hiked across the parking lot to the Best Buy to meet up with him.  Ari, being Ari, didn’t realize that where we had been sitting was MUCH closer to the Best Buy than where we had been dropped off by Olivia.  This was the place where she led me so that we could exit the mall.  So yes, we hiked back through the mall just to hike over the same ground to get to Best Buy.  >.>

Soth had his daughter with him (she is completely adorable BTW) and I joined her in the back seat for the ride to Ari’s house.  In typical little girl fashion she told me all about her pictures that were in the back seat, her lunch pail and how her daddy was mean to her when she was bad.  I thoroughly enjoyed myself.  Have I mentioned that I love kids yet?  Yeah.  When we got to Ari’s house they came inside for a bit because Soth had to ask Zam some computer questions.  His daughter picked me a flower and chatted with me until they were ready to go.  Total sweetheart.

After they left Ari and I watched this anime video called Wicked City.  Her description of it to me was “This is kind of hentai” and me being me was all “sure!”

Yeah that movie wasn’t “kinda like” hentai, it was.

Complete with some tentacle rapage.

There was also an uber creepy monster at the end.  Like really gross creepy.

Fantastic movie! 😀

When it was over we were kind of hungry.  Not full out FOOD NAO hungry, but munchies hungry.  Zam was busy and not hungry so Ari grabbed a cab and we went to IHOP.  It is an Airoch approved restaurant.  We got the appetizer sampler and played cards.  I taught her how to play Gin Rummy (or at least what my family calls Gin Rummy).  After the first few hands she started kicking my ass.

After about an hour (maybe) we packed up the cards and decided that we would walk to my hotel (which was like 4 blocks away) where we could keep playing cards until Zam decided to come find us.  We get there and my stupid key doesn’t work.  Now I had been having issues with the damn key working the entire time I had been there.  It wasn’t just me, Ari couldn’t get the damn thing to open my room.  So we trooped down to the office where the Indian dude re-keyed in my card (notice he didn’t give me a new card) and we went back upstairs and tried the damn key.  After a few more tries the stupid thing worked and we were able to get in.  We played cards for quite a while (she completely trounced me) then Zam called and wanted to know if we were ready for dinner yet.

They took me to this Chinese buffet/Mongolian BBQ place that they used to frequent a lot.  Apparently it used to be much better.  I was just sad that they did not have rice noodles.  I think I am going to have to visit the one I go to just to make up for me missing out on rice noodles.  Hmm maybe for lunch this weekend.  Nom nom nom.  Sadly no raunchy jokes were made.  Although I did get texts from Tir laughing at me over other things.  Have I mentioned that he is a brat yet?  Well he is.  Yes you are a brat! :p

After dinner I was dropped off at the hotel where my key didn’t work yet again.  Notice the pattern? >.<

The plan for Sunday was everyone would meet at Ari & Zam’s around 10:30 am where we would head over to Old Town Sac and be touristy and just maybe take a train ride.  Zari, Tel and Soth were supposed to make an appearance.

However, I shall be leaving Sunday’s escapades for another post.

Hey I am milking this for all it is worth! 😉

Watch out, she is back!

Yes I am back home from my lovely extended weekend in Sacramento.  I would have had this up earlier but apparently missing two days of work where you are the only employee kind of puts you a tad bit behind.  It has been a busy busy day at work both yesterday and today.  I was going to attempt to get this posted on Tuesday but the fates conspired against me.  So now I am writing this on my lunch break.  Maybe Soth will stop complaining that I haven’t put up a recap post.

So where do I begin?

Friday morning I wake up at 3:45 am and freak out thinking I have overslept.  Nope, I’m good.  I had just stepped out of the shower when I get a text from Tir telling me to call him once I get to the airport.  Now mind you, this is the guy who said goodbye to me over vent the night before like I wasn’t going to be talking to him the next damn day.  >.<  Tir I love you sweetie, but you are a silly silly man.  Andrew was kind enough to take me to the airport so I wouldn’t have to pay to keep my car there.  He dropped me off and I went through the whole security thing.

Let me just say that I was shocked at the sheer amount of people in the airport at 5:30 am on a Friday.

I managed to get through security and find my gate with about 15 mins until boarding.  Being the good friend that I am I give Tir a buzz and we chatted for a bit until I had to board.  He asked me to call him when I landed in SF for my layover (yes I had to switch planes to fly from SD to Sac, shut up it was the cheapest flight).  Queue uneventful flight, 45 min layover in the SF airport, then another uneventful flight and I was in the Sacramento airport.  I had called Jen from SF and let her know what the schedule was.  She was running a little late and told me to call her when I landed in Sacramento.  I had just answered my phone to talk to Tir (who was calling me this time lol) when Jen pulled up.

The best part?

She was wearing her WoW priest shirt. 😀  Go Jen!!

We left the airport and pulled over so she could put Arioch’s address in her GPS, as we backed up the car we hear a *crunch* and Jen goes “What was that?”  Turns out she backed into a stop sign.  It was left leaning at a very sharp angle as we quickly left the scene of the crime.  We laughed about it for the rest of the day.

We find Ari’s house, and yes she does in fact have pink flamingos in her front yard.  Her and I ended up running across the lawn to hug each other.  It was pretty cute if I do say so myself.  I dropped off my bag, gave Zambra a quick hug and then the three of us were off to lunch.  Ari wanted us to go to The Counter which is a hamburger place.  I will say that they have very very good hamburgers there.  Ari had a 1 lb burger with a fried egg on top.  I still don’t know how she managed to eat the whole thing without it getting all over all of her clothes.  The hot waiter (whom I flirted with and embarrassed) called her a soldier for eating the whole burger.

We were going to go to a sex shop to find Soth’s birthday present but Jen ran out of time so she took me back to Ari’s house.  Said goodbye to Jen and I got the tour of Ari’s office.  She showed off her UI and people in gchat made fun of me.  About par for the course.  After a while we asked Zam to take us to the sex shop to get Soth’s present.

The place that Jen suggested to us was awesome.  This was the first sex shop that I can remember seeing that did not have the windows covered.  They had a huge selection and despite not finding the exact thing I wanted, I still had a tough choice on which item to get.  We ended up wandering around the store and checking out the toys.  There were a ton of really neat looking ones.  The next time I am up there I might have to make a stop back at that store.  Thanks again Jen :D.

We talked and decided that bowling was on the menu so we made a stop back at the house to pick up Ari & Zam’s shoes and bowling balls (and my bag) and headed out to the lanes.

Now I love to bowl, but I suck sooooo badly at it.  Ari wants us to get a SR bowling team going and to join a league.  This would require me to move up there.  Sorry hun it will take a bit more than a bowling team to get me to move out of San Diego. 😉

I was feeling grimey and smelly so Zam dropped Ari and I off at my hotel so I could check in and shower.  He said he would pick us up in about an hour and we would go have dinner.  Ari and I got to relax and chat some more.  Dinner was Dennys (it sounded good) where Ari had an ice cream sundae for dinner.  Ari has a wicked sense of humor and combine that with my perverted humor, well poor Zam was quite red.  All I am going to say about it is there is a reason we have a smut blog that we write in. ^_^

After dinner I was dropped off at my hotel where I reaquanted myself with cable television.  I think I was awake for 23 hours by the time I fell asleep.  I think it was 3 am my time when Tir called me (I don’t know why he picked that time) and I was still awake, watching TV.  I eventually fell asleep though.  The funny part was I wasn’t super tired and I was even perky the next morning.

Go me?

Anyway, my lunch break is now over and I still have 3 more days to go.  I will do my best to get Saturday’s events up tomorrow. 

Oh and Soth, you’re a meanie :-p 😉
