    • I went to Iowa... NOBODY CARES

      9 years ago

      ott21

      So, ya, I went to Iowa... Figured I'd write about it.

      Thursday (the 6th) the family and I packed up for the ten day trip, oh also I should mention we went for a fireworks convention. anyway we packed up and then got to bed eary, left at 8am
      My dad started driving, went for an hour then me for three then one for him then three for me then stoped for the night, not too bad, so got up the next day early dad went for one hour then i went for seven little more tiring, what made it harder was that they slept. then we just had a day I did three and we arived in Iowa.

      The week proceeded pretty well, every night there was a show or two and competition and open shooting, dad entered 4 events and got 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 9th.

      We ate out alot and I had alot of bad food and junk but all in all it was a pretty good week, some of the best shows were sunday and friday, man some of the stuff was so amazing I can still see the lights in my eyes. I cant believe some of the stuff I saw it was amazing.

      Hung out with a couple of people that I will prolly never see again *shrug* oh well. Most of the convention however was a bunch of old people mulling about and shooting fireworks.

      My parents kept me really busy, preping competion stuff, packing/unpacking the car driving them all over for one reason or another that I had like no time to do anything except the stuff they wanted me to do, except after the show at night when I had some time before going to sleep.

      The exception to this is thursday and friday thursday there was nothing schedualed so me and my mom went to this huge stuff place called the hobby lobby, for me there was alot of stuff that was stupid, but when we got back to the arts and crafts section, there were like ten aisles of it. And omg the deals, like a professional drawing pad for $5 and a good set of drawing pencils for $7 and a bunch of other stuff. I was like man I've seen all that stuff in other stores for like 2-3 times the price i got that stuff, too good to pass up yeah? i thought so. We wanted to go out water skiing on the lake that day but well it rained... well anyway friday we went but couldnt water ski cause the water was really choppy and dad was the only one that knew how and he was also the only one that knew how to drive the boat so instead we got this tube that was tied to the boat and held on for dear life IT WAS AWSOME, I got the first ride, jumped on the tube slowed out till the line was taught and then my dad reved it all all the way and left it at full tilt. It was so much fun until he took a sharp turn and threw me out of his wake and then when he straightend out it pulled me back over the wake and threw the tube (according to my mom) six feet out of the water, suffice it to say i couldnt hold on and was thrashed under, but it was totally worth it. Then we had a fiasco getting me back on board cause there was no ladder and it was above water level, then mom was squimish to go cause she might not be able to get back... when she tried to get on the tube... she fell through >_> i loled and even a bit of rofling then got her up easily, then she went for another go really slowly like painfully slowly, then i went and went almost full tilt which was perfect

      then we left saturday we left at 7 for home, mom went one then me for five then one for dad then six for me. I was wiped, and today sunday we left at 8 and dad started for one and i finished for eight... good times... they slept while i drove tired me out so bad. Its gunna be time for bed soon cause i have work tomorow smiley4.gif

      I hope everyone had fun in philly, wish I could have been there and for all the other awsome shit that happened this week, but I'm glad to be back with my cats and my bed and to be home, I'm gunna have to catch up with stuff eventually but that will be another day.

      I should prolly do a tldr since that is kinda long.. so
      tldr: rents wined till I went to Iowa saw alot of fireworks drove alot, I was on a boat and then I wasnt, and then drove alot more, bed time.

      Epic amounts of win!

      It was great to see everybody again and had a blast. So much great stuff I dont even know where to start

      For me the best part was after the CTF game which was the only time that i really losened up, but i loved all of it. i felt kinda bad about not doing the formal thing but after everything started getting going it didnt really matter. The Ram on the Rye was awsome as always, great location, the BYOB was cool and it was fun doing the coloring even though i knew i wouldnt win cause i just do normal coloring stuff, but i liked it all the same and feel like i should start drawing more because of how much i liked it. the main event was awsome... i played alot of flux >_> awsome game! the whole thing with the geoff masks at the imperial was so awsome and even though it was close quarters and there wasnt much room to move around it was fun, and everyone that participated in the open mic was so awsome and i liked the band but it would have been alot better if they had only done the first set. martha and nico were awsome as always i just wish that they had more or at least everyone wasnt talking, it was packed tight and alot of people were talking and it was really loud. then the sunday was the picnick and ctf which was just awsome and spams ale 8 party was great awsome story times and of course much ale 8.

      great time and i cant wait till next year, which i could go to philly, im sure that will be great too and it will not be as good as philly

      everyone that i hung out with was awsome, and i am so glad to have met you!

    • Tales from the 1970s

      So my parents were just telling me a story from when they were younger and living with the past me, Orin the cat, a pet product called Indoor No and Outdoor No, anyone ever hear of this shit? cause it is crazy what it does.

      People sold it as a pet deturent (to keep cats of furniture or that type of thing), so my rents got some and sprayed it on the kitchen counters to keep the cats off, and sprayed some on a piece of paper and put it on the kitchen table to keep the cats off, and some on the end of a couch to stop them from scratching, well... it worked, a little too well. One day my mom noticed she was getting black and blues on her hips and then very shortly after she notices my dad bumping into well that was right next to the table. She similarly noticed that while she used to lay on the couch that they sprayed it on she now sat as far away from that end as possible, and finally she had stoped using the counters, she used to put dishes on them to be washed, and prepare food, she stoped completely, they started eating in other rooms, they did all of this unconciously, and had never noticed that this was happening until that moment and realized that it was the Indoor No, apperently this stuff worked just as well on humans as it did on pets.

      later on they told one of their friends about this stuff, he was about to be fired from a company they all worked at, so what does the guy do? buys a bunch of the stuff and sprays a shit ton in their boss' office, well guess what happened. he stoped using his office. every morning he would come in put his brief case in his office and decide to work in the conference room. when they asked about it he said that he just felt "more comforable" in the conference room. it was a very nice office too. when their boss left the company (he did fairly shortly after) noone ever stayed in that office more then a week for several years (maybe longer my parents left after that time) no one ever knew why they didnt want to be in that office (except my parents) buy everyone avoided it even when it was empy.

      the final time that my parents used it was on a racoon trap that our neighbor used that caught our cats every once in a while since carmen went up that way to catch moles, after they sprayed some on it, no animal was ever caught by that trap again and he got rid of it soon after.

      Indoor and Outdoor No has since been discontinued and taken off the market, but my parents still have a can of outdoor no somewhere in our garage (I would supose that it is on the bench that noone uses anymore) It is amazing how much this stuff works and I almost can not believe it, I really want to see it work but since it is invisible after sprayed, and oderless I doubt very much that I would be able to observe much change in a short amout of time. Man stuff from the past is really cool.

      This concludes TALES FROM THE 1970s!

    • Wet... So very wet...

      10 years ago

      ott21

      so... i have some useful information, stuff that is very simple but when you are cold and soaking wet from the rain you sometimes forget...

      firstly, ALWAYS wear boots

      secondly if you forgot the boots, after it snows hard so that there is accumulation and they plow and the snow turns to rain, that is not snow on the sidewalk it is water with a bit of snow on it cleverly discuised

      thirdly if you are trying to avoid said clever water dont walk in snow after steping in the first cleverly discuised puddle becuase then your feet are frozen in addition to being wet so that when you finally get to class and take off your shoe becuae it feels like its about to fall off you will find ice... lots of ice in there

      fourthly never walk more then you have to EVER not even if you forgot a book that you will suposedly need for your next class that you left in your car, it will not be worth it and with the weather will make next to no one show up for class and you wont do what had been planed anyway

      fifthly and most importantly if the water gets so bad that by the curb the water is up to your knee and you think i can just jump over that no problem, dont and this is important DO NOT JUMP if your feet are so cold they are numb because you might just hit the ground and not feel it and try to over compensate and end up falling backwards into that puddle you were jumping over and have people make funny comments like "whatd ya just go for a swim? haha" or "take a bath with your cloths on? lol"

      also rain and snow are cold and colder if you have a fifteen minute walk that turns into thirty cause your trying to avoid your feet getting so cold and wet that they fall off

      so ya... fun day... not. curling up under two blankets trying to warm up, is it summer yet?

      Yesterday I was looking into that Glass Onion Sexy Sadie all Across the Universe and I Followed the Sun all the way to Mr. Moonlight. I was walking down Abbey Road today when I said Hey Jude can I borrow Maxwell's Silver Hammer, I'm Fixing a Hole. On the way home I saw Mean Mr. Mustard, as I walked away he told me “Julia, She Loves You but You Can’t Do That. You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away!†She wasn’t just Another Girl; I mean It’s Only Love, right? I had to Get Back, but ahead of me I’ve got The Long and Winding Road so I turned down an ally and saw a Blackbird eating a Wild Honey Pie when Lovely Rita walked up asked where I was going to be When I’m Sixty-Four, I said “I’ll be Back in the U.S.S.R.†I took a short cut past Blue Jay Way when I Saw Her Standing There. It was Michele. She was distributing fliers Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite. While reading The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill. “I Want to Tell You,†I started to say, “It’s All Too Much.†She cut me off replying, “Everybody’s Got Something to Hide Except Me & My Monkey. Don’t Bother Me Little Child.†Instead of staying I saw a Magical Mystery Tour bus and got on it like you had to Run for Your Life. The tour took us past the Strawberry Fields Forever cemetery and The Night Before motel before I shouted for the bus to halt and let me out. I walked the rest of the way home just to find Dizzy Miss Lizzy saying something like “I’ll Be Back later for that little Yellow Submarine!†My roommate had been selling his collectables again, he wanted to be a Paper Back Writer one day but till his Ticket to Ride comes along he won’t get anywhere. “Where have you been Day Tripper? You’ve been gone since yesterday,†he shouted across the room. “Can’t it Wait?†I asked, “It’s been a long day and I just want those Golden Slumbers to fill my eyes, I’m So Tired.â€Â

      Two hours of nothing to do can be fun, it was fun to write but its really stupid sorry. Beatles are awsome. thats all.

    • Stuff

      Boo's gone, still no sign or word, nothing smiley2.gif I miss him.

      Classes have been long and tiering latly even on the days I dont have them, I was on campus today for like three hours doing a group homework, it wasnt too bad but I was too tierd. Friday I have to go talk with a girl from my japanese class about the conversation we have to give in a week, then I'll be going home to get away from the rents that have spent the entire time I have been in school here... Not good for homework and studying and stuff, but it also means the cats are here and I get to eat good food.

      Japanese has been cool so far though apperently I have been focusing my attention in the wrong place since, from the first day I started practicing the writting and reading when I should have been studying the vocab since we need that for the first quiz before we need to master the writtng and reading. Its been cool though. My other classes have just been blah long and tidious

      Spores been awsome, been playing it all the time that I havent been doing homework, oh and the past few days where I havent even turned my computer on, but ya... its a good game you should pick it up.

      Other then that stuff I havent been doing anything latly, I really should do more here and i say that entirely too much smiley6.gif

    • So...

      10 years ago

      ott21

      I know I havent done... well anything here in a long time, not really sure why either just havent been up to it, I should try to fix that but I'm too lazy. well, school starts up on thursday, went and got all the suplies i need gunna go get my books tomorrow. should prove an interesting semester, I've got all my classes on tuesday and thursdays, so four day weekend with a break in between but those two days are gunna be a bitch smiley4.gif on the plus side im taking japanese that should be cool, and three math courses and a psych course.

      but on the down side of life, boo my cat of a few years, went missing sunday night smiley2.gif my parents didnt tell me until today (tuesday), when I talked to them on the phone today they said that he went missing last night, so I was still hopeful that he might come back yet, but when I got here they said he had actually gone out on sunday and not been in since with no sign, they had gone out looking several times calling him asking after him but nothing, he just disapeared so now I'm back to two cats again. I loved boo he was always stand-off-ish toward me but he was still my cat and he was a good boy and I will always miss him. I still havent given up on the hope of finding him, we put signs up and the whole deal gone searching.

      So thats whats going on I've not been feeling well latly and this doesnt help... I really hope next week is better then the last.

      So car accidents... started to worry about when i will be in one because my friend was in one a few days ago and today I was driving and just after i droped my friend Jason off and Im driving back to Durham with Matt Olivia and Chris and I stop for a stop sign, and the lady to the left of me starts driving (it was a three way stop sign, there was a car to the left of me and a car that i hadnt seen to the right) and then the guy to the right also went at the same time, it semed that both of them didnt really stop more of a rolling stop and then BOOM they crashed and the front end of both cars looked totalled and the girls car was spewing out transmision fluid huge streams of it. Both of the people were ok and the guy called the police to report it but it got me thinking when will my first accident come, its a statistical impossiblity that i will never be an accident and its got me worried that it will happen sooner rather then later.

      Boring as shit. All day yesterday I was trying to start texting conversations with people, and finally got a hold of Jason (21st birthday today, and he's new to the site, but nearly as much of an RvB vet as me), so that made Wisconsin more tolerable. I was so damn happy to see my bed again. Toronto was super fun but I made it home with -$18 smiley5.gif . So another day there wouldn't have been fun.
