Mom, Blogging, Mutants & Carnival
I get asked why I blog everyday... well I blog partly to keep friends and family up to date on my daily life as I don't get to talk to them everyday. Another reason I blog is that it's a great way for me to get things out of my head and off my chest... a kind of diary. It's fun to go back and read posts from a years pasts and bring back great memories. And a small part of me likes the notoriety, I know I'll never be famous but it's fun to think that there are "fans" out there that enjoy my work (podcasts, blogging, webseries, etc..).
Played some more SWTOR with my buddies Chris and Brett. Again I gave myself a 3 hour limit to play and sure enough I could have gone on for many more hours but didn't... so yay me.
Dolby Atmos (which is the best theater audio system by far). If you want to join me, let me know.
Went jogging/walking with my buddies Adam and Andrew. I saw a tweet from Adam debating on jogging for a third day in a row and I replied that if he'd go I'd go with him and then our buddy Andrew asked to join in. It was fun, we walked, then jogged and walked again around the NoHo park a few times before heading to Starbucks for a drink. Hope we can do it again soon.
During the evening a group of friends had planned to go to the local carnival which was at the NoHo park (across the street from my house). When the time came everyone bailed but my buddy Robert, his girlfriend Cait and myself. So the three of us went and enjoyed the carnival. First thing we did was the big slide (Cait won). Then Cait and I did the scrabbler and that ride lasted at least 10 minutes. I was ready to get off that thing halfway through the ride, but it was fun. We then went and get a few snacks before Cait and Robert did this kind of drop ride.. we then headed over to games booth to win Cait a stuff animal. We choose the water guns/balloons game. What is funny is Cait actually won and got herself a stuff animal, she don't need no man to win her anything. :)
Robert and I then went on the one ride that I wanted to do the most. It's hard to explain but it's like a roller coaster car on a track that goes in a loop. So you rock back and forth a few times before going completely in a circle (3 times) and then you do it backwards (3 times). It was a crazy but super fun ride.. I definitely felt wobbly kneed when I got off that one.
We called it a night (we were there for little over an hour). It was alot of fun, just wish more friends would have shown up. Oh well.. the three of us had a great time.
