In the Latest .hack News...

.hack//G.U. Vol. 3 Redemption shipped today! OHMAGAW!! I can't wait! *runs around in circles*

Yes, I'm being uber hyper in this post, but that's from the anticipation. I can't begin to tell you how excited I am for this game!
Let's try a list, shall we?

1) SHINO! Finally, Shino will be brought out of her coma AND she'll become a party member! w00t to that!

2) The conclusion of the G.U. trilogy! Who wouldn't be looking forward to that? I mean really, G.U.'s story is honestly its biggest appeal (along with its characters).

3) Tabby! Again, another character that'll become a party member. She became one of my fave characters in Roots, so of course excitement is in the air. Another w00t!

4) Bike Missions! More bike missions make me happy. Despite how frustrating they could be in Vol. 2, they were also a lot of fun!

5) New Areas! Even more new areas to explore! I'm pretty sure there's two types, along with the special AIDA areas... kukuku...

6) Music! Yes, even though I've already heard the music Redemption has on my OST, I'm still looking forward to it. Especially the credits theme, You Smiled Kindly.

And for now, that's all I can think of. Still, not too bad, right? I can't actually get the game till the 12th though. If only I had my driver's license, I'd go get it myself, but unfortunately I must rely on Mother to pick it up for me. *sighs* I really must get that license soon...

Off to celebrate more Redemption excitement then! And more, AND MOAR!
Ta! ^^

God Bless

Ding Dong, the Fair is Dead!

Heh, very happy about this week's caption battle. (b^.^)b Thanks for usin' my image, SomeGuy! 'Bout time we got some .hack up in here!

Anyway, on to the main attraction.
And... I get payed tomorrow! Double w00t to that, my friends.
I'm very glad it's over. I was seriously tired of talking to people; all the ticket sellers in my lot were at that point. Basically, we were badmouthing people and their stupidity and being all grumpy, and then a car would drive up and we'd be back to "Hello! How are you? Six dollars!"

Yeah, it ended around the right time. Riiiight before I was about to strangle someone. Seriously, I was pretty tired of people saying, "Wow Abby, you're so red, oh my gosh!" or "Get a little sunburned there?"
Oh no, really? I didn't even notice that I was burned when I looked in the mirror this morning! Thank you for pointing it out!

At least I was able to help send everyone off with a nice day by getting my parents to bring pizza. Thing is, it's not like I planned it with them either, I sort of... surprised them by calling them on the last day about it.
All I can say is my mom is awesome. She brought the pizza AND some soda. Everyone in my lot loves her now; my leader was saying, "Your mom is a doll!"

And so it ended. I got some people's numbers; hopefully this time around I'll actually keep in contact with them.
Now I'm just relaxing at home, waiting for my sunburns to heal. They're pretty bad, my hands have blistered even. Luckily, mother dear gave me some rosebud salve that's been working quite well, so hopes are still high.

Tomorrow then, I shall go and visit you all. It's been quite some time since I've gone and done that. >.> Eheh...

God Bless

Fair Job, Day 2 - Tearful Departures

This morning, my sister Robin left for Linfield College in Oregon. The whole time leading up to the actual departure wasn't so bad; I was too busy getting ready for work and Mom, Dad and Robin were also preparing to leave.
But then, right before we both had to go, we hugged goodbye, and that's when I broke down. I was crying for quite awhile, even after they had left.
It's really hard. Even right now, as I'm typing this. Oh, we'll definitely talk. A lot. Through cell phones and emails. But still, tis a big difference from actually having the person there.

Beginning of work was a little sucky, cause I was still so sad about Robin. Otherwise, the rest of the day's duties were pretty much the same. I luckily got to sit down in the shade under the gazebo quite often, since we have plenty of ticket sellers. Good thing too, since my arms were burning yet again.

-_- Gosh, no matter how much sunblock I put on... it's because of my dermatologist-prescribed things, they make me burn even easier than I did before. Just thought I'd inform y'all 'bout that little fact.
I've pretty much decided that tomorrow, I'm wearing a (light) long-sleeved shirt under my Fair one. I will not be able to survive much longer otherwise.

Anyway, one interesting event happened today. Because the whole slogan of the Fair this year is "Be Somebunny!" (trust me, it's always lame every year) the Fair decided to try and break the world record for longest bunny hop. I didn't even find out about it till today. They were passing out free bunny ears, news vans were there, all that good stuff. I didn't actually go (too tired or too lazy, you decide), but some of the other lot workers did.
And apparently, the Fair's endeavors paid off. They were able to get something like over 2000 people to line up and do the bunny hop for 5 minutes. Yeah, woohoo...

That's it then. Got home, ate dinner, called Robin, decided to stay home from iaido, took a shower, and voila! Here I am! :P
Only 10 days left now. *crosses fingers*

God Bless

And so, Abby went to her first day of work...

Today was my first day of work at the State Fair as a parking ticket seller.

Honestly, the job itself was the easiest part. THE most annoying thing was getting sunburned pretty badly on my arms and cheeks, despite the fact I applied sunblock often enough to prevent it. T_T Stupid Banana Boat.
But, the second most annoying thing was when I got lost in the fair when I went to get my apron and money. I went to the wrong frickin' office! I went to administration when all I needed to do was go towards the blue gate! ARRRGH! (I know none of this makes sense to you people, just go with it.)

The other weird thing is the shifts. We have pretty much all our parking attendants starting around the same time, which is... well, not right. Then we have four ticket sellers, when really we only need three at any given time.
All this combined with the fact my leader has never worked the parking lots, let alone the fair.

So yeah, a bit of a rough day, but not the roughest I've ever had at the fair. The leader is really nice, even though she doesn't know how to quite function the lot yet. I'm gonna try and be positive about it though!
Only 11 days left after all... eheh...


God Bless

Vacation Story, Episode III: Return of the Norwegians

July 3rd

Waking up that morning, all our hopes rested on C'oeur D'Alene coming to our rescue.
I got up that morning, sat by my parents and said, "I really hope C'oeur D'Alene calls." Shortly after saying that, my mother's cell phone rings. And who is it but none other than our saviors! It was, indeed, C'oeur D'Alene, saying we could come a day early!
So then, it was decided. We would take the tour of the Grand Coulee Dam that day, and also try our best to stay away from Sunbanks as much as possible for the remainder of our stay.

Off we went then! First we went to this information center that overlooks the dam; got to watch an informational video about how the land structures were formed in Eastern Washington and Idaho and such. The center itself was kinda dorky, but oh well.

Off again to the dam itself! It's... well, big, to put it lightly. Unfortunately, we couldn't see too much of the inside of the dam since 9/11, but what we did see was flippin' awesome! Everything was just big, big, and bigger as we went along. I wish we had brought our camera. We assumed they wouldn't let people take pictures, but nope. XP Oh well.

After that, in order to avoid having to go back to Sunbanks, we found a park to eat lunch at. >.> My brother Kyle though was being a big pain at the time. Heh, kinda funny that Eric was so nice on vacation, yet Kyle was just... worse than ever. *sighs* Oh well.

Again, after eating lunch, we did all we could to avoid going back to Sunbanks. I think we did end up going back for a couple hours, but then we decided to try and find a place to fish.
Eheh, not exactly a lot of great places around the area though. However, after looking for a bit, we came across a pond full of the biggest fish I've ever seen! Of course, we parked the RV and set up right there!

At first, it was really exciting. We were so looking forward to eating some fresh fish! But then the first hour went... and then a second, and a third. We tried every kind of bait and lure too, but none of them were biting.
After awhile, we started to suspect something... turns out, it was carp all along. T_T Frickin' carp. *sighs* Kyle and I started to think it might've been carp after awhile, considering they looked just like the carp you can catch in Animal Crossing. See? Games really are helpful for real life!

And, what hit the nail on the head was when some people drove up and said, "Huge carp in there, huh?" -_- Of course, we acted like we knew it was carp all along. "Yeah, they are big!" *sighs* We're such noobs...

We tried, in vain, to find another spot, but there just wasn't anything. But still, at least we got to avoid Sunbanks the whole time. So off we went back to that horrid place, to spend one last night before we escaped it's presence forever!

July 4th

Ahhh! What a glorious day! What a splendiferous, glorious day!
It was so great being able to leave Sunbanks. It truly was the worst campsite I've ever stayed at. And we finally got to leave!

Off we go to Idaho! This is where the story becomes more of a blur... well, more like, not too much to talk about. I shall do my best to recall it though.

Obviously, twas a long drive. Ain't it always? By now, we were very much used to all the clanking going on in the RV when it was in motion. Even our dog, Nick, was pretty accustomed to it by then.

But anyway, once we arrived at the campsite... it wasn't exactly what I was expecting. Again, wish I had pictures to show you all (still don't know why we didn't take more). Still, twas MUCH better than Sunbanks. Oh goodness, yes. We got a much bigger campsite this time around.

Actually, we got lucky when it came to our campsite. Most of the RV spots were similar to the one at Sunbanks: just a big enough spot to park an RV there and have a small little bench alongside it.
Plus, we were right by the center of activity. We were finally able to do our laundry. The bathrooms were also much, much, MUCH nicer here! They clean them every day, so that's why. :P

So, even though we couldn't celebrate July 4th like most people were, we at least were able to escape the nightmare that was Sunbanks and move on into good ol' Idaho.

July 5th... and 6th... and 7th

Seeing as the last few days of vacation were a bit of a blur, I shall be leading you along by events rather than days for the remainder of the post.


Only three days left. Only a couple chances left to catch a fish! On the fifth, we went out and got some one-day Idaho fishing licenses. Then, on the 6th, we all woke up early (yet again) to go out and try one more time.
We were actually able to find a couple of good spots. We definitely got bites, but so far no fishies.

Then we went down to this one spot. By then, I myself was tired of fishing, so I let the boys go and have their fun. Wonder if I should regret that or not...
Anyway, just as I was walking back to our RV to get some stuff, I hear all this hollering coming from where the others are fishing. And what do you know, I missed out on Eric catching a fish! A big one too, I might add. This time, we did get a pic of him with the fish, so I can share that later.

By now, it was nearing 11 am, and we weren't getting bites anymore after Eric's bigg'un, so we headed back to camp.
Heh, lucky Eric got to gut his own fish. I was safely stowing myself away in the RV though, I really didn't need to see any of that.

Since we actually had luck this time around catching a fish, and since we only had this one day left for fishing anyway, we went back to a couple spots later in the evening. But what we luckily missed out on in the morning was here for us in the evening: bugs. -_- Lots of 'em. I tried to fish again for a bit, but there were just so many flies buzzing about, I couldn't stand it.

Plus, this time, there were other campers about by the rivers. Despite that, Robin came really close to getting a big one. It just barely escaped! Too bad; so, in the end, after all that money, we got one fish.

At least it was a darn good fish. Yes, even I ate some. Didn't even taste like any fish I'd ever eaten; tasted more like chicken than anything else. Dinner would've been a lot better had we had even one more fish to eat.

Through all that however, we enjoyed ourselves fishing. I know Eric really loved it. Maybe we might just go again sometime...


I must say, I did not take full advantage of the fact that we were out in this beautiful place. By the time the last few days of vacation came, I was tired. Tired of my brothers (particularly Kyle), tired of bugs, tired of the heat, tired of sleeping in such a hot and cramped space...

So, even though I know I should've gone out there and done more, most of my last days were spent inside the RV, where it was cool. Finally, my electronics came in handy. Played some Super Mario World, watched some anime on my CD/DVD player.

I wasn't the only one, though. My two brothers were inside the RV most of the time, too. Kyle practically never left it. >.> Twas pretty easy to tell by then that we wanted to go home. Eheh.

More problems... blah

Tain't too big a problem, but still. When we came back on the 6th from fishing, twas night time. We were all ready to get to bed. Yet what do we find when we go back to our spot? Someone sharing it with us.

Oh joy. Mainly, they were using our hookups, but still. Wasn't something we really wanted to see. However, by morning they were gone. So meh. Wasn't a huge problem, just we'd already dealt with so much.

July 8th

Finally, twas time to say goodbye to C'Oeur D'Alene and go back home. We left pretty darn early too. It was decided we would just go the whole 6 hours, no need to stay another night at a different place.

Nothing in particular to say about the ride home, just that we were all anxious to get back. I remember I was watching .hack//Roots practically the whole time on my CD/DVD player. Heh, twas a good way to pass the time.

Man, I can't tell you how happy I was, personally, to see green again. How joyous it was to be back in Western Washington! Ahhhh, such a good feeling!

And what was even better was driving up back into Monroe. Then seeing our house. Then stepping into our house! Oh yes!
Nick was even excited about being home. You'd think our cat, Max, would've missed us too, right? No, just our beds. -_- All he wanted when we got back was for one of us to open the door to our bedroom. Stupid cat... and I actually missed him when we were gone, too.

And so, the unpacking ensued. I quickly unpacked, I just wanted to be able to settle in and not worry about it. I was very happy to have my own bed again too.

Our vacation had its ups and downs (quite a few downs, really), but overall it was nice. Really, it was the last vacation we had all together as a family. And what a vacation...


God Bless

Vacation Celebration Station Nation


*trumpets blare*

*little children run through the streets celebrating*

At last, the time has come! The 2nd part of my Vacation Post! Accurately titled...

Land of the Hot Washington Sun

June 30th, Part 2 of 2

I gotta say, Western Washington and Eastern Washington are like night and day. When we first passed over the Cascades and saw the scenery, it was eerily like that of California. It was strangely nostalgic, cause I used to live in CA for 11 years. But yeah, it was neat.
After awhile, we came across the town of... well, I can't remember the name, but it was definitely a tourist spot. All the buildings were old western style, even the gas station.

Anyway, before we went to our campsite, we went and got some three day fishing licenses. Heh, I don't even like fish, yet we intended on catching some to eat. Meh, whatever. Don't have to like fish to enjoy catching them, really. But yes, more on that later.

By that time, we were all pretty hungry, so all we wanted to do was get to our campsite for that night and eat. Off we went then to Silver Lane. But, wouldn't you know it, there was some sort of Sports Tournament in town, I think it was baseball, so there was no occupancy.


And while my dad was discussing all this with the people at the desk, the rest of us were in the RV, just trying to keep Nick from barking his head off.
Finally, he comes back and tells us that there's no occupancy, but that we'll be able to stay here tomorrow night. Until then, we're going to a different campsite, called Big Twin Lake.

So again, off we go.
Despite the fact that we didn't get to eat lunch until late afternoon, the campsite was quite nice. The camp spots were nice and big, and we had a really good spot. Right near the lake, so a great view; under a tree, so plenty of shade; and HOOKUPS! Oh, thank goodness! Our last campsite hadn't had any, so what a welcome change.

Ate lunch, took a shower, watched some Arjuna (yes, even on vacation, we brought DVDs), ate dinner, had s'mores, and voila.

End of the 2nd Day.

July 1st

Morning came, and so did our departure from Big Twin Lake.

Before we headed over to Silver Lane, we went into the touristy Western town, parked the RV in a public RV parking area, then walked around for a bit. It's... very small, as are most Eastern Washington towns that I saw. Again, very touristy. Wasn't really much worth seeing. Best thing in town was the ice cream shoppe.

Back to the RV again then, ate lunch there again (more sandwhiches, of course), and then played Celebrity for a bit. (Celebrity: A game where one person gives the initials of some sort of famous person, fictional or real, and the others must ask yes or no questions until one person figures it out.)
Gosh, the many times we played Celebrity on this trip...

Anywho, off we went then to Silver Lane. Honestly, it wasn't as nice as Big Twin. The spot was a lot smaller, and the camp itself was a lot busier.
But still, at least we could fish here. We were pretty close to the lake (again), and there were some docks there. My brother Eric actually caught a crawfish. Yeah, that was interesting. We got a pic and everything too (I'll post that later).

Fishing is actually pretty fun... when you're actually catching something. Even if all you're getting is little fish, tis better than just sitting there for hours on end...
But yeah, Eric, Kyle, Dad and I went fishing for a bit that evening before and after dinner. It was a cool experience; I learned how to put salmon eggs on the hook, caught a couple of small fish too.

So then, the night came, we watched some Monty Python (more DVDs, le sigh), and off we went to bed.

End of the 3rd Day.

July 2nd

Today was the day. Today, we woke up early. Today, we went fishing. Today, we caught nothing.
Funny thing is, Dad and I were there early enough to see someone else catching a big fish, so it's not like they weren't there, just that we weren't lucky enough to get one.
Oh well, the experience in and of itself was fun enough. However, not everyone saw it like that. Robin desperately wanted to catch a fish, even a small one. She was so determined to that end, she wouldn't give anyone else a turn on her rod for quite awhile (only three fishing rods, you see).

And so we went back, defeated; ate breakfast, and yet again, got ready to go to another new campsite: Sunbanks.

This campsite was by Grand Coulee Dam, so the whole reason we were staying there was to get a tour of it the next day. It was a long drive there, but pretty cool when we finally saw the Dam.
Now, all the other towns up to this point were pretty crappy. Small and just not too good looking. But the little town that was right next to the Dam was very nice. Very green.

But yes, onto the campsite.
Remember, this place was different. This time, we had made reservations for a spot beforehand, quite a few months back. So you'd think, when we arrived, that the spot would be really nice.

Eheh... no.

For one, Dad drove down the wrong way, past the registration desk, so he had to awkwardly park next to this one building for a bit while he and Mom went to get us checked in.
So imagine us, stuck together in the RV with all these people around us, Nick barking here and there yet again. By now, we were already pretty sick of each other too.

So Mom and Dad came back, and Dad had to awkwardly back out and go back up the dirt road we had just gone down.
We were expecting a pretty decent spot, you know? Typical of most campsites at least. But, what we rolled into was a parking spot. Or at least TWO parking spots, but still.
Disappointed but beyond our control, we started to settle in for a nap, when what do you know? Another RV starts pulling in right next to us, into what we thought was OUR spot. By this time, yeah, we were all pissed.

Apparently though, what we thought had been our entire campsite was really two spots! So our space was even smaller than we thought. Luckily, the RV wasn't staying, so we still had that bit of room. Doesn't really make up for it though.

Anyway, to just get out of there for a bit, we decided to go into the town and get some ice cream. We found a really nice little burger place that had really cheap ice cream. It was nice.

By the time we went back to Sunbanks, guess what else we found? Someone had parked in our spot. When the guy was told he had to move, he said, "Sorry, I thought it was a parking spot." Oh no, really? Who would've thought our little campspot could EVER be mistaken for that, hmm?
Whatever. Let's just forget about that, right? At least we got our spot back. Yeah, hurray.

I tried to end my evening on a somewhat high note by taking a nice, relaxing shower.

Eheh... no.

For one, the showers were filthy. Toilet paper in the shower stalls and just... ugh. Whatever, I dealt with that at least. As long as I get a hot shower, right?

Eheh... no again.

The water was frigid cold the entire time. Gashsplurn you Sunbanks.

By the end of the night, we were pretty determined to get out of Sunbanks as soon as possible. We were scheduled to stay there through July 4th, but there's no way we could take this. Mom called the next place, Coeur D'Alene, to see if we could come a day early. As long as we could get out of this hell-hole, really.

Now we had to play the waiting game. Would Coeur D'Alene come through and save us, like the good li'l Christian camp it is? Or would we be stuck in our parking spot for two more days?

Vacation Post FTW! =O

Finally, I shall brave the vacation post. I've got Dive in the Sky playing, so the motivation is there! Here we go!

Vacation Story, Part 1 of 3

June 29th - D-Day (Departing Day :P)

The morning was very busy. We had gotten the RV the other night and had already packed up a few things, but there was still some stuff to go over. It was bad. lol We were running all over the house, and the whole time our dog, Nick, was just sitting in the RV, like he refused to be left behind. It was cute. ^_^
So then, finally! Everything's all packed up and we're off! One of the things I didn't realize is just how noisy the darnded thing would be once we got rolling. All the stuff was clanking in the cupboards, jokes ensued about watching out for knives and shotguns, then Nick's bone bag slid across the floor in the back. It was hilarious.

So, after a bit, we stopped at a Lane Bryant outlet, since I had literally no shorts of any sort. So while the women shopped, the boys went to go get some Li'l Caesar's pizza. Success! We purchased the short pants (cause short shorts are not for me :P) and the sandals, or thongs as my mother was calling them. See, nowadays, you can't really call 'em thongs anymore, cause I actually thought she wanted us to get THONG thongs. My brain had a major fart. So yeah, after that, I made her call them sandals instead. XP

Then we're off again! We arrived at our first campsite, the only Western Washington campground we'd be staying at too. The campsite was very pretty, we took several pictures of just that one place. I'll post some of them sometime soon, it's pretty nice. Unfortunately, it started raining. Even in an RV, it's no fun when it rains. We still had to cook part of dinner on our old camp stove, because the one in the RV sucks.
At least Nick was having fun. He was tugging on his leash, running around and everything.

Another problem that arose was the sleeping situation. Not so much in who would sleep where, that was already figured out. Robin (my older sister) and I were going to sleep up top in the loft; very cramped space, but you eventually get used to it. Then our older brothers Kyle and Eric would sleep on separate pull out beds below us, and of course Mother and Father got the nice bed in the back.
So yeah, that was all worked out already. What had to be refigured was how Robin and I were positioned. At first, we were going to have our heads sleeping on the same side, but we discovered that was way too hot. I suggested she sleep at one end and I at another, and problem solved. The only annoyance is the feet in the face, but it wasn't too bad. :P

And so, the First Day ends...

June 30th - Part 1 of 2

Because it rained the other night, the ground was all mushy. Yeah, not very fun. And guess what we decided to all do? Go hiking. See, that's not my thing. I don't have hiking shoes, and the ones I have aren't exactly the best quality for that activity. The nature part of it was nice, but the physical part wasn't. Blah, I know, I need to exercise more.
But man, we saw some strange things. Some huge mushrooms growing on the side of all these trees, some banana slugs, and then this huge boulder that had this split down the middle. Again, I have some pics of that I'll post sometime later.
Since we couldn't just leave Nick inside the RV for two hours, we brought him with. But man, that dog. He always pulls on his leash so much, it's hard to even walk him at home. Now put him in a situation like that, and it's even worse.
I thought I did pretty good, considering. I didn't complain until I really got tired toward the end, which is when we went back.

Basically, as soon as we got back, we had to pack up and head out. If we stayed past noon, we'd have to pay for another day. So yeah, off towards the Cascades and Eastern Washington!

To be continued...

God Bless

Gosh, Planetes is the best. You guys HAVE to see it if you haven't yet. I was going all fangirly about it last night. Just... trust me.
