Guess who's back?

The vacation was not entirely horrible. I didn't care for my sister's driving (we took her car up so she was the driver for me most the time) as she is a bit reckless, and she kept getting lost since I don't think she knows how to work her GPS very well.

I didn't mind the dinner and breakfasts with each other though; it was nice to get together for a meal for once. I didn't care for having to play Scrabble and Boggle with them though. Not all that good at the two.

No pictures because there really wasn't much too interesting. If I had my camera with me, I might have video taped the road that felt like a roller coaster with its steep hills and tight turns. Ah well.

The casino was rather fun for me. I stuck to the slot machines as usual, using only 50 bucks. This Dragon penny slot machine got me up by 13 bucks, then a deal or no deal one sucked me down to 35 dollars remaining... And the rest of the time i stuck to a quarter slot machine that kept bouncing my money up and down, but never as much as the dragon slots did. I went from only having 8 bucks to 55 dollars... then it went down a lot, up a little, down a lot again, and so on until it finally used my whole 50. I stopped there, as I had my fun, plus we were getting ready to go. I didn't have the patience for blackjack that night, my other favorite thing at casinos.

We had a dinner at a Red Robin, which had this awesome chicken sandwich (also in burger form) with lettuce, tomato, onion ring straws, chipostle mayo sauce AND bbq sauce mixed in that was just so good, I had to write about it. :P

While I did have internet access, I didn't have much time to update or do the usual blog things except on the first night I got there, so I'll be catching up shortly after I finish this post. I'll leave you with another hot cosplay image I found.

  2. I like this... btw, Beating Inertia has a new Q&A post!

  3. You know, that's a good idea. I think I'll do that- keep it to once a month or so.
    Right now I'm "editing" a video of how I made a jig for handle drilling. I'm going to overlay an audio track that's recorded afterwords so that I can explain everything, and actually be heard/understood!

  4. On a note related to your post, I'm glad to hear that you're a responsible gambler. My mom and dad both play the same way- here's how much I have, and this is all I'm using.
    So often my moms coworkers complain about not being paid enough, and not having the money to afford new clothes and school supplies for their kids... and then they go on about how they just blew several hundred at the casino the night before.

  5. Sounds like you had a fun time. Too bad you didn't hit it big on the slots lol

  6. it's good that the vacation turns out to be ok. sounds also that you have some fun.

    btw, thanks for watching the videos on my blog.
    really appreciate it.

  7. vacas can be fun i'm glad you had a good time

  8. FFFFF that chick looks so familiar D:

    Nice to hear you enjoyed your vacation :P Good to hear you only put in $50 at the casino. Gambling can get pretty addicting when you win so it's nice to see someone limiting themselves :)

  9. I do the same thing at casinos. It's best to walk in with $XX.00 and play it until you're either bored, out of money, or up enough to quit. That way, you'll never spend TOO much money. It is a blast just to go and hang out at a casino, though, even if you only bring $10.

    Glad to hear your vacation went (relatively) well :-)

  10. Dude, you gamble the same way I do. :) Grats on being responsible. Following and looking forward to more.

  11. See, I told you you'd be alright. I'm glad that it wasn't a total drag for you to get together with your family. :)

    And good job at gambling smart. Set goals and never go over them. If you walked in with $50 and came out with more, great, but you should never come out less than $50 behind...

  12. i liked that cosplay chick. gave me a semi.
