Got back from a two day stay in magic mountain. Left early
yesterday morning around 10:30am. When we arrived at 6
Flags, the tempature meter on the car read 106 degrees.
Horribly hot. Standing in line for hours, surrounded by
sweaty people is not fun. True, the rides were great, but
ride:line time ratio very low.
At the end of the day, my friends Steve and Terea left
back to San Diego.
Jason and I were in line waiting for funnel cake, so Kalani
and Erica left in Erica's car for the motel that they had
reserved. Kalani gave us directions to the motel, but it
took us over a hour to find the place, it was at least 20
miles away from magic mountain, in some remote corner of
hell (Ventura County).
Pulling up to the motel Kalani ran out and told me that
clerk running the place was going to get us in for a cheep
price. I go talk to the clerk. The guy is some shaddy
fellow who will not speak up, because there were microphones
in the lobby. Apparently we were doing some under the table
deal for $50 for 2 rooms. After much confusion we finaly got
settled in our illigal lodges.
Bobby and Verity got to the motel around the time that
got there. Bobby had interesting storys about how he has
become a drug addict and hanging around with ravers and
dealers. Fairly interesting storys, I was quite entertained,
however, he is being somewhat stupid, if I was to judge him.
Just a little too careless for my tastes.
With a ton of people packed into each room, it was not
comfterable. At least I got to sleep on a bed. But the room
apparently had no air conditioning. I slept very little,
just laying there in the dark heat.
This morning we woke to the shaddy clerk giving us a
call, telling us that we had to be out by 7am. After
hussling out the door, we went to Dennys for breakfast. We
rang up a bill of about $75 between all of us, I offered to
put it on my card since I had no cash, I only got a $5 bill
from Erica. However, through out the day people gave me
money for the bill as they got change for it. I'm a little
pissed off though because I ended up not getting back all
the money I spent on the bill, infact I paid $30 more (not
including the price of my food or Kalani's). Not a big deal,
but that somewhat makes me mad, I just don't feel like being
an asshole and asking people individualy for money. Sucks.
We were planning on going to the water park at 6 Flags
today, but when we got there we found it was closed, so we
went to Magic Mountain again. Its not a big deal because
most of us have season passes, but that ment another day of
standing in sweltering heat waiting for rides. We left
around 3pm. It was not fun.
Rode home with Jason, Ken, and Kalani in Jason's car.
trip home was ok, but being stuck in the back seat for two
hours, it just doesn't work well with my knees. By the time
we got to Kalani's house (where my car was parked) I was
completely annoyed with everyone.
One thing in particular that annoyed me, was when we got
Kalani's house, Ken had to go to the bathroom. It went a
little like this:
Ken: "I really need to go to the bathroom, can I use your's
Ken: "... What?"
Kalani: "My parents don't really like people in the
Ken: "I just need to use the bathroom though."
Kalani: "Well, I suppose."
I don't know if its because I've been standing around in
degree weather all day, and crammed into the back of a car
for hours on end, or the fact I got very little sleep, but I
found that Kalani was being extreamly rude and I was fairly
offended. I left quickly, came home and took a shower.
It's nice spending time with your friends, but that trip
just too much. I had fun, but had to endure too many
sufferings for it. I rather would have stayed home.
I hope to spend the rest of the night relaxing in front
the computer and checking up on some stuff. Might even start
a little programming project. Haven't completely wound down
from school yet, need to relax.
