skydiving: denied

Well yesterday Motoko and I were supposed to go Skyediving with Archway Skydiving, but the weather stepped in and flipped us the bird. Jason, the instructor called us before we drove out there so we didn't waste any time. I asked him if we could try again tomorrow and he said he would have to make some calls to see if he had a pilot and second dive instructor available. He called us back late that night and said he had everyone available for today and to hope the weather is OK.

Well i woke up this morning and damnit but it's all cloudy. I'm like fuck. there sky was clear with stars at midnight when i got home. So i called them up and got his partner ed. He advised i reschedule, but the final call could wait a couple hours, just in case it cleared.

damn!! it really looks like this is not going to happen.

on the positive side we have had a good time doing everything else. We went up the Arch on Tuesday.

small break from life

well i haven't posted for a couple weeks. i'm not sorry. and i won't appologize.

two weeks ago i headed to indianapolis with the gang for GenCon 2006. it was a good con, not great, but good. after i came home i pretty much just vegitated.

i've relaxed, thought about a LOT of things and now i'm solid with myself again.I think everyine needs to simply unplug from life every once in a while and make sure they are still who they want to be and where they want to be and going where they want to go.

Con Report: Friday

Well friday was a slow damn day to get started. well that might be because my drunk ass didn't fall asleep until 4am.

once i regained my senses + one light hangover, i headed out for my first day of the con. it's as good as always. Cruised the dealer hall almost all day. picked up some j-pop, some japanese movies, and a couple anime.

now it is time to head over to Greek Islands for dinner. see ya

GenCon 2006 First report

well i haven't been in the convention itself yet because i had to work today, but i arrived about.

i met up with the gang at the sports bar in the hotel loby then we all went to a cigar bar called Nicky Blaine's.

Do not EVER go to Nicky Blaine's in indianapolis.. they called the cops on us because were refusing to pay an automatic gratuity

per their menu a gratuity is automatically applied to your bill for parties of 6 or more and we only had 5 people. in the end we paid it and left because one of the people in out party works for a defense contractor and it could jepordise his security clearance. but we will never go to this place again. all over $35.

more posts later. at the moment i'm exceedingly drunk.
