The Never-Ending Birthday Week -or- Karenpalooza 2012 Part 1
Monday Day 1 - Nice leisurely trip to the gym to burn off some of the weekend after being hungover and sleeping almost all day Sunday. While I was there, Trainer Brian was there and we caught up on things. He looks like a Beatle now. Hadn't seen him in months...hair's all grown out and he's rockin' an interesting mustache configuration. Got home and cleaned up and Willie stopped by to give me some shit about something and brought up Dave & Buster's. So we went. And proceeded to get a bit of lunch and a little drunk and a lot excited over some pretty silly games.... Like, video lawn darts (my shit) and a Pirates game we fuckin' pwned through all 3 acts, and a Spaceballs game that was a big ticketer that was basically just a rubber ball version of Plinko from Price Is Right (also my shit). We had some >3,000 tickets and went crazy snatching up cheap toys & candy from the winner's shop.
The next morning I would realize that I'd left my check card at the bar.
Tuesday Day 2 - The night before there were talks of waterpark action. Aquatica or Typhoon Lagoon? Typhoon won out because I used to work there and hadn't been since. 13yrs? So we stopped by Dave & Buster's to grab my check card and cruised out to Typhoon. After a quick stop by the bar, The Crush'n'Gusher made me dirty giggle and we grabbed a dual tube to jump on the Bananas slide first. Got a workout up those stairs and jumped in to immediately start screaming down the slippery slopes and yell "SHIT" on turns when I thought we'd flip over. Zippy bags full of cards were lost & found more than once. Mayday Falls flipped me backwards. Gangplank was shorter than I remember and still pretty lame. Keelhaul was fun and I scraped my foot on the bottom of the Creek in the same spot Pannacakes pool attacked me from the weekend. The water seemed low. Terry made green crazy shots. They were tasty.
When I got home, Matthew and I were supposed to dance. After another couple of jager shots, I ended up passing out in the car on the way to dance.
Being the Awesome he is, he went in to check out the situation (explaining that I was "not feeling well") for a solo dance with Instructor Brian's instructor lady friend, Lindsay but she was busy, so he rescheduled us and had a cider at the bar we frequent next to our dance studio.
