So for the past week or so, I've been having these terribly mentally exhausting dreams and usually in the morning (when I half wake up and flop around on the bed trying to fall asleep again) I find I was crying in my sleep and I remember the dreams perfectly and everything (everything
, like, the dream the crying the sleep the world and LIFE, everything) somehow makes perfect sense in completely senseless way and then I fall asleep again and wake up and become normal again and can't remember the dream except that I had them and that everything made SO MUCH SENSE and that I LOST IT and nothing makes sense anymore. T__T
Needless to say, this is severely screwing with my sleeping habits because it is not restful at ALL and has resulted in me getting really really sleepy at 8-9 PM on a Friday
night and being really sleepy at 11 in the morning and totally not excited about the roller coasters (but then a few rides + whoa fluffified sugar! (i.e. cotton candy) kinda cured that).
Ohohoh so!!! We went to Great America yesterday. :DDDD
... Deb never showed. I cry. HOW WILL I EVER GET YOUR WOMBAT TO YOU?! T__T she said she didn't have a ticket (there were only 4 free tickets) and we were like AHHHH we could've paid for you! but she sounded really tired and she just got back from camp and all so eh. w/e. *sad*
So then! THERE WERE SO MANY PEOPLE. Obviously, it's summer and a weekend AND oh right this just happened to be the designated day for ALL the free tickets yes? So the people, they came in HORDES. Overwhelming waves of them!
We only went on Topgun once
. And we never got to Invertigo or Drop Zone! *woe* BUTBUTBUT Melody and I went on the high skyflier thing. The one that has a giant arch and they sling you up really really really high and let go and you SWIIIIING back and forth like a pendulum. It cost money but omgwtf totally worth it. I got to pull the thing that let us go!
Guy: So, which one of you wants to pull the string?
Mel: HER. HERHERHER.
Mel: It's ALL YOUR FAULT. If we die it's all your fault
. Got it? I want it very clear that everything is HER fault. One hundred percent!!!
Fwee roller coaster rides aren't as fun/scary as they used to be. :( And I wasn't scared of the pendulum thing until we were slung all the way up to the top. And then I looked down and went "...shit." ==;;
Voice from faaar down: Beta 3 2 1, go!
Me: ...I'm pulling this thing now.
Both: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH *breath* AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
after the initial plummet and the cord catches you, though, it's INCREDIBLY fun. A bit like delirium except 10 times better because you aren't squashed into a seat or clamped down or anything you're just FLYING. And it obv goes a lot higher, too.
We managed to drag Keropi onto Vortex and Topgun and Delirium and the boat thing that swings around upside-down. So she's gone from "AHHHH I HATE ROLLER COASTERS *hide*" to "Ehhh they're kind of bleh but I'll go on it..." and hopefully if she goes on some more she'll eventually be able to enjoy them! :D
We did Keropi-happy things too, like hair wrappings. Eliza/Kero both got a black/darkblue/lightblue scheme and Melody got an obnoxiously pink one XD and I got darkblue/green/yellow. It ate up lots of time because there was only one lady and one stand and she did EVERYONE one by one. And they missed the shipping or something so they had terrible color choices. T__T No white, which looks good with pretty much everything, and great quantities of pink but no red. wah~
Right. We also had this giant waterfight thing somewhere in Boomerang Bay on the water playstructure. Keropi somehow started a fight with this random guy who turned upon us viciously! >< We all got completely soaked through~
(Oh oh and you know all these fake Aussie signs they post there that I never ever noticed before? I RECOGNIZE THEM NOW!!! And they're not accurate, either. muahaha. *feels knowledgeable*)
mmmm got home 10-11 or so and dropped dead. :)
... why don't people ever chronicle these things anymore? *feels lonely, esp now that cougarfang
hast come here and doesn't update much anymore* =X
