Great Date!

Soooo. The date last night = AMAZING! 😀

He was so adorable and so nice and we had a great time. I really didn’t want to leave when it was time to go, cause I just wanted to keep talking to him! Like I said yesterday, we went to Houston’s in Santa Monica. Got there and hung out at the bar for a little bit. I had a Jack and Coke and he had Vodka Tonic… He said Jack and Coke was a straight drink.. haha.

Had another during dinner. The convo was really great, at least I thought so! We talked about all kinds of random stuff.

After dinner we walked down to the theater and bought tickets to Nacho Libre. The show didn’t start for another 30 minutes, so we went to this bar across the street. It was a really cute place. I had to go to the bathroom, so I went and came back and he had bought me another drink.

We had talked earlier about the Jack and Coke thing and I had mentioned that I drink 151 and Coke sometimes too, since he thought that Jack was a hard drink. lol. So that’s the drink he got me.. at 151. Needless to say, I was pretty drunk for the movie. But whatever. It was good.

The movie was very stupid but also very funny. It was also so cute, because we got there and he put the arm rest up between the two of us and he was leaning into me the whole time (He claims it was because of the fat man next to him, but I think otherwise. haha) and he held my hand! ::swoons:: I also grabbed his fore-arm at one point, and held onto it.. OMG, so muscular. Yummy! 😀 Must be from all that rowing he does!

We also talked about his last bf for a while, and it sounds like he was in a bad relationship. I guess they went up to SB for a weekend and his boy totally missed his competition. I would have been so pissed if that had happened to me!

After the movie we walked back to the parking structure and up to the thrid floor where he was parked. We said goodbye and I gave him a hug. He kissed me on the cheek, so I gave him a soft peck on the lips… It was so…. nice. 🙂 I was honestly very surprised that he would show that much PDA.

We parted ways after that and he told me to call him when I got home.  So I did and we made plans for a date on Wed! He’s coming down to RB for the evening. 🙂 Sadly after that I then won’t get to see him till the next Wed since I’ll be out of town. Then he’s going out of town the next weekend!

Anyways… As you can probably tell, I had a really great time! AND HOPEFULLY something will come of this one!

LaCie Drives SUCK!

So, a little under a year ago, I bought 250Gig LaCie Porche HD Drive. The thing has been nothing but trouble. It constantly needs to be re-formatted. It doesn’t show up in the Drive list a lot of the time. It forgets it’s partitions, etc. Finially it totally just crapped out. I called the Support line, they said to mail it in. So I did. A couple days later, I receive a brand new drive in the mail. I plug it in, format it to MacOSX (Journaled) and then backed up my laptop to it. Unplugged it and sat it off to the side for the move. Got up here, plugged it in and nothing….

So I called and they said, mail it in. Again i get a brand new drive… I plug it in. Format it in FAT 32, and put some stuff on it. Unplug it. Set it off to the side for a few days. I set up my new desk yesterday. Plug the drive back in, and all it does is sits there and spins… NOTHING! So I’m going to have to get another new one! Ugh!

This weekend has been stressful and yet relaxing. Friday night I went out with Andrew. We started off on a bad foot with him yelling at me for apparently hanging up on him. And then yelling about my driving. It went down hill from there. We saw a horrible play called “Miss Firecracker Contest” at which he told me I hated everything. The night ended with us yelling at each other and then having a nice chat on the phone.

Saturday I just chilled at the beach and then at this cute street fair they are having here in RB. It was so fun! I just wish someone would have come with me. 🙁 I also saw The Lake House. It made me cry. 🙁 I love chicago

Same thing today, beach street fair.  I have a date with a really hot boy tonight too! I’m very excited about it. He seems really nice so far too. We’ve talked on the phone a bit and stuff. He’s taking me out to Houston’s and then a movie.

Lately I’ve really been wanting to just go home! I miss it so much!

Gpa’s 80th B-day tomorrow!

My parents haven’t heard from my brother since Mothers day. They are both pretty pissed. He didn’t call for Fathers day or my Mom’s B-day. My theory is that he’s dead. lol.

OH! Saturday I pretended to be straight and installed a CFGI outlet in my apartment! I now have a 3 prong plug, so I don’t have to use those stupid converters anymore!

I saw this today over at The ten worst freeway interchanges are:

  1. Los Angeles 101 at the I-405
  2. Houston I-610 at the 1-10
  3. Chicago I-90/94 at the I-290
  4. Los Angeles I-405 at the I-10
  5. Atlanta  I-75 at the I-85
  6. Washington I-495 at the I-270
  7. Los Angeles I-10 at the I-5
  8. Los Angeles I-405 at the I-605
  9. Atlanta I-285 at the 85

What have we learned? Avoid L.A. at all costs.Haha. I love that… Avoid LA at all costs! It’s so true, and so sad that I drive through the number 4 spot twice a day!

Back In Iowa

Well here I am back in Iowa. And boy am I glad to be home and talking to my Drew Bear again.

Today has been really long. We got up about 3:45am and were out of the hotel by 4:30. In the airport by 5:00 and on the plane at 7:30. Before we were even wheels up, I was sound alseep, and slept tell the initial decent into Houston, at which point I just fucking wanted to be on the ground to talk to Drew bear. I couldn’t wait any longer!!!

I got on the ground in Houston, called him and left a message. Then started listening to all his messages. I also have a call back for a job to do on Monday.

We talked for about 2 hours in the airport, and then talked for another 2 hours tonight. We just got off the phone. I’m supposed to be unpacking right now, but I wanted to update here.

I find it funny that they had 16 inches of snow here.

Here’s a temp difference
Merida/Polk City
Sun: 93/52
Mon: 97/37
Tues: 93/37
Wed: 91/45

Oh, how I loved the warm weather!!

Laters all.


If you would like to read them all in ORDER! Click here Just skip the first two, as those are from my trip to Cali a couple weeks ago!

Hot Boy

Today was absolutely amazing. We walked so much today and did so much and saw so much. It’s just all so really cool.

But first I have to tell you all about last night, which was a blast! lol.

Well, actually I should tell you about the day yesterday. We all took this bus which was hellish! It was like a 2 hours bus ride, and the roads here are horrible, so every little bump or crack in the road and you came up out of your seat, and then there wasn’t any AC in the bus, so it was just hell! I couldn’t believe it.

We got to the village and walked around this cathedral and this short crazy guy gave us a tour and it was funny. And he showed us this really neat sun dial from like the ancient times. I really love all the history here, I wish we had it all in the states too!

After that was a carriage ride around town and then to the ruins. Which was really neat. We climbed to the top of them and had a good time. From there we went to this restaurant which was really cool. I also learned a few things…

“30% more push”
“Double Deckers”
Both of those things reference things you can do in the bathroom, if you really want to know ask. lol, It’s pretty gross.

Once we were done in the town we came back to the hotel and then went out shopping. I tried finding andrew FFX-2 for cheap cause they had a lot of PS2 games super cheap, but no one had them. The guy at the video store also checked me out, and he was pretty hot. Though the thing I really don’t like is that you can’t tell how old the people are here. It’s kinda strange.

Anyways, after that we went to this store and got some bacardi and came back to the hotel, got supper and ordered a big pitcher of pineapple juice. TOok that up to the girls room and we mixed that and the rum. It was REALLY good tasting. I had a lot more then the other people, and I really started to get annoyed because everyone was treating me like I was 2. And I was still doing just fine and I wasn’t that drunk. LIke I remember everything that happened and all that. Then we went out to the hallway to get something, and Yanira came out of her room and made me go back to my room. She walked me down there. lol. I sat up watching TV for a while, then talked to my roomies when they got back from the game. After they left again, I went to bed and slept tell 5:45.

Today started out really annoying. LIke everyone was asking me if I had a hangover and was again babying me. It got REALLY fucking annoying. I KNOW my limit for drinking and I wasn’t even THAT drunk. It really got on my nerves. Just like when EVERYONE was pointing out that I was burned and asking me/telling me to put on my sun block! I’m fucking 22 years old. I can handle this shit myself.

Anyways, this morning we went out to Chichen Itza and it was REALLY REALLY pretty and so neat. Again it was just more ruins and stuff. But these were in such great shape. And it was just so neat how like they built over the old stuff to make new, and how most of the “hills/mountians” in this area are actually just ruins that are covered over yet. How neat would it be to just one day go out to your back yard to dig a hole and find a ruin. They were all so pretty.

ONe thing though is that I wish we had more time to explore it on ourselves. We only had like 30 minutes total, which was a bit sad. I could have sat at the top of the pyramid for a couple hours just looking at the views and stuff. I also wish that we could have been able to climb more of them. It’s sad that they had them all blocked off.

I also got to thinking about how they know all of this stuff and the history behind them. What also confuses me is how can things that are so HUGE can be lost in time and get covered up like that. I mean, where’d the people of this region go for so long that these huge pyramids can get lost. It really just amazes me.

It’s like they say in that one movie..”There’s so much to be see then can ever be seen, so much to do more then even be done” and that’s totally how I feel out here, there’s just SO much to do and so much to see. I wish I could live here for like a year or two and just do everything and experience it even more.

After we left the ruins I got REALLY annoyed about things, because like these stupid guys were being so annoying in the market. I wanted to look around and see what they had to sell, but they were being so aggressive and annoying that I just couldn’t deal with it, so I left and went and met by the buses at 2:15 like we were told. Then I get there and we’re told that it’s now 2:30 that we have to be there, so I just sat there for the fifteen minutes. It was really annoying. Then we get to the place where we’re eating and I just get even more annoyed. Whatever though, I’m not going to let it ruin the last couple days of my trip. Lets just say I’ll be glad to get away from all the drama that’s going on around here.

Oh, and then at the hotel where we ate they had this place to shop inside, and they had this HUGE shelf penis candles. And then we go back in farther and they had gay mayan sex things, and also penis flutes and stuff. It was so crazy! If it weren’t so expensive I would have bought them.

After that we came back to the hotel here and I went to the internet cafe. It was SO great because I got to talk to drew bear. It was only for like 10 minutes, but it was still really exciting to get to talk to him again. I gave him a REALLY quick run down of what I had been up to today. And we just talked about a few things. I can’t wait to get back to Houston so that I can call him and talk to him. I’m also really excited because apparently he’s been calling me every day and leaving me messages. Which is insanely cute and I really want to go hear them all.

Talking to him again really made me miss him so much more, and I can’t wait to see him in a couple weeks. I’m really excited for my trip to Cali in April. Not only for getting to see him but also for all my job interviews. I really hope that I get an offer by the time that I leave that week. I’m super excited for the interview at that place just 10 minutes from Andrew. It’s the one where I applied for the Cobol and they e-mailed me back saying they’ve been thinking of adding a new position for a Sys Admin and my resume looked really good. Out of the interviews that I have, I’m most excited about that. Also the beginning part of next week, I’m going to be really busy calling places back and applying to jobs to make up for all of them I missed this week.

Well, I guess I”m really done talking so…
