The grand prix is upon us and its that time again!!!

Current situation, just landed and was early so now I'm waiting on Wirfs to drop stuff off at the hotel :(

I meant to start this before I left, but I forgot. Had to do a ton of last second card stuff because I worked the 8 previous day's and was way behind on trip preparation. Went to bed at 4 am argh!

Flight was smooth... I didn't learn my lesson with the Germany trip and brought a book again... Read one chapter before remembering I could just catch up on movies the whole trip... Stupid bringing books lol. Watched Zombieland 2 and Hobbs and Shaw F&F. Both seemed pretty decent and passed the time quickly... Now if Wirfs could just show up as quickly! :x

None of this says you listened to me and built WYS raiders. I've lost interest.

It has definitely been built!

Wirfs finally arrived and we tried to go to this burger place he claimed was amazing, so I was all in... Insert past funny story...

So one year for Texas I stayed with Robbie (see post above) and when he picked me up I mentioned wanting a good home town burger place and he said he knew just the place. As we are driving I see a Culvers and make a comment something along the lines of "wow, you have Culvers here also!?" He proceeds to pull into Culvers and surprise! That was my home town burger treat! To be fair, they do have great burgers and I definitely smashed 2 double bacon cheeseburgers!

So back to this trip... we pull into the burger place and Wirfs tells me we gotta go up to the window and order (no inside or drive through). I see a small menu of various burgers and ask the girl if they have bacon, to which I get a prompt no. So I say ok, I will take 2 double cheeseburgers with no pickle. She tells me she can't do that and other burgers have no pickles and I can choose one of them. I peruse the menu and see no more cheeseburgers that come without either mustard or pickles. So as I am wondering what to do, Wirfs asks me if I want to just go and I quickly agree, because his friend is waiting for us to play games... So long story shortened... I had McDonald's for the first time in ever since I can remember... I didn't even get my royal with cheese in Amsterdam :(

So, the guy has to work the next day and says he doesn't want to play teraforming mars, but when we arrive he has it all set up. We decide to play with all the expansions and I get a pretty decent start. Guys (Mike) roommate comes down and Mike asks him if he wants to play teraforming mars with us, but guy is like no I have to sleep. Mike is like man, you have the day off tomorrow, just play. He is like no, I have to smoke and sleep. I inform him if he wants to play teraforming mars we still have yellow green and black. He laughs and says no again. Pity.

At some point I have to pee and Mike and Wirfs try and give me directions to the restroom, both of them kind of snickering. There are no lights I can find and I go around a dark corner and find a door and try and open it. Wirfs comes around the corner and tried to tell me to just to straight, and the toilet will light up, but there is only a wall there so I think they are * with me. I open the door the other direction and it lights up and there are all sorts of dragon statues looking at me lol.

We start playing, and I get super confused by politics (the new rules I haven't used), and I remember when I got introduced to colonies the year before and Jonny Chu and Wirfs wrecked me with them because I didn't understand. After getting confused by what was going on I stop them and have them explain it for like 5 mins, was still a little leery of the rules, but caught on eventually. Around this time the roommate comes down to smoke again and we make a comment about playing and he again says he has to sleep... Ok guy lol

I jump out to a huge early lead, but make some play mistakes because there is so much going on with the game, and Wirfs starts rolling (he is like a grand master). The roommate comes down again and sees we are playing teraforming mars and looks really sad, and says "you guys are playing teraforming mars!? I would have played if I had known". We only told you 10 times man! Lol

So anyways, Wirfs ends up edging me out because he is a life time master pro at teraforming mars. After i use the restroom again he waves me towards another hallway and I go down into this huge room with literslly an entire wall of DVD and bluray. I scour the wall to see what he has and see the girl with the Dragon tattoo and start questioning his taste. Then I see the entire series of Lexx on DVD and am like woah! I thought I was the only one that liked Lexx. I tell him I had them all on vhs, but they got stolen. He is like you love those? You can have them, I don't really like them that much. So now I have the entire series on DVD... Mike is a swell dude!

Wirfs and I say our goodbyes and he tells us to watch our step (maybe even palace raiders!) And I remember it was like a long winding staircase down to the road, and of course there are no lights on and I'm convinced that this is how i will die. Wirfs asks me if I have a flashlight and I'm like why would I have a flashlight!? He asks if I have the AP on my phone and I remember I probably do but have never used it. I find it on my phone and literally save both of our lives!

From there we go to the grocery store so I can get toothpaste and Listerine (can't have a trip without Listerine!). We look at all sorts of random food and try and find the bakery to check on cookie cake (Gogolen, if someone knocks it out of my hand if I find any, i will literally die lol). We find all sorts of random stuff, but the bakery is alluding us. We find hundreds of containers of candies, nuts, veggies, etc and I remember when I was a kid they had these chocolate stars in those types of containers so we looked furiously for them, but alas, they were not there. Neither was cookie cake, and so we settled on kit Kat drumstick ice cream. We were about to head to checkout and Wirfs asks me if I got everything I need, to which I reply yes. He is then like "did you get your Listerine!?" And I'm like oh *, the one thing I came to get! We search several aisles, and finally a very kind Chinese lady asks us what we are looking for, and directs us to the Listerine!

We get back to Rockys place (Wirfs father in law, who is one amazing guy!) And decide to try the ice cream. One of them appears to be already open and Wirfs is like whatever, I will eat it... Seemed questionable to me, hopefully Wirfs is still alive tomorrow! We try and put the ones we didn't eat in the fridge, but there is no room and they keep falling out. Wirfs is like "looks like we are just going to have to eat them all" lol. Benny (Rockys dog, little yappy Taco Bell dog) comes trotting out to investigate, and Wirfs sooths him with kind words before he loses his * and wakes the whole house up. Wirfs gets ready to leave (he stays at his house still) and remembers we haven't even hugged it out yet so we bring it in for the real thing!

So ends day number 1... See you all back here tomorrow!

Wednesday the forums were down the whole time, so I will update that tonight. Today will be live updating!

Picked up Kessling last night and Charlie and Casey today. We are at Pike's Place market currently. Hit up the first Starbucks and seeing the sites. Kessling is going for broke on edibles apparently lol

We are going to Harpsters place later for poker, pizza, and shenanigans. Should be good times!

Not gonna lie... Trying to update this with the forums not working half the time is a chore.

Yesterday Wirfs, Kessling, and I start out on our day to meet up with Charlie and Casey. Kessling has to make a conference call so we swap him out with Casey at the hotel and go pick up Charlie while we wait. After we gather everyone we head to pikes places.

We all get food and have Starbucks at the first Starbucks. Charlie wants to look at wallets so we peruse the shops. Charlie finds no wallet, but I get a new one since the one I have is 25 years old so I figure it's about time for a new one. I buy some pastries for us (still can't find cookie cake). I Spent way too much on souvenirs lol.

Next we head to Harpsters house for some poker fun. Harpster decided we need to get beer, cards, and hit up an ATM, so Casey, Harpster, and I load up in his truck and make the 1 minute drive (was literally 1 minute)to the convenience store, owned by Harpsters best friend, Peter, a Korean gentleman whom he keeps calling by his first name. On the trip back Casey asks the question of the day, why didn't we just walk over here?

We all but in for 40 bucks to start and Harpster buys back in like 100 times, Wirfs and Kessling take everyone's money and everyone has taken multiple edibles. Harpster orders from this pizza place that makes the most delicious pizza. Gosse shows up eventually and donates some money to Wirfs and Kesslings retirement fund as well. I rebuy and get down to like 30 bucks at one point, but end up finishing around about 120, so I will take it.

Charlie and Casey play this virtual star wars game and Casey is terrible at it, but Charlie beats Darth Maul and plays for like 30 minutes, trying to earn the padawan status. The rest of us play this game called loopin Chewie, which is a game where Chewie flies around and you have to stop him from knocking your coins off. You have a paddle and try and hit it to bump him over your coin tray. It's pretty great.

Fellowship ends for the day when Charlie, Kessling, and Casey head for the trailer and Wirfs and I settle into our bed (be jealous!) For a long winters night!

If I forgot anything funny hopefully one of the guys adds it.

So then what happened? There's like another 2.5 days that didn't get told?! I think you need to finish the story, GRRM.

We should get you a Go Pro and microphone so you can do a video journal from the MPC.

The censored words should have old 80's sound effects like clown horns and photoshop like a DQ Blizzard over his mouth when he says it.
