On the eve of the East Coast Meet Up, Shorty and I have been scheming.

We're going to drive down to San Diego on the 24th of May. Late-ish because I'll be at Jen's before that. IN ANY CASE, I know a bunch of you folks live down that way so how about we go visit Shlup's favourite place in the world, Japan Disneyland! If not, then how about we just all meet up and hang out anyway! Because of something Shlup said and I didn't read properly but WE CAN'T GO TO DISNEYLAND ON THE 25th but the 26th is a-ok!

Also Pant I sent you a facebook message (I think it was you) so can Shorty and I crash at your place :D

Shlup
05-18-2012, 04:30 AM
You'd better pick me up, unless you want to pay $15 for parking!

Shorty
05-18-2012, 04:31 AM
I'll pick you up, Shlup!

Jiro
05-18-2012, 04:34 AM
I will try to pick you up but you already warned me that's dangerous :monster:

Shlup
05-18-2012, 04:35 AM
I want a piggyback.

Jiro
05-18-2012, 05:01 AM
That I can do.

Shlup
05-18-2012, 05:58 AM
I feel like I should warn you that if you actually touch me they'll find you floating face-down in It's a Small World.

Shorty
05-18-2012, 06:04 AM
That ride gives me the creeps.

Jiro
05-18-2012, 06:11 AM
goddammit

Shlup
05-18-2012, 06:17 AM
Even creepier: The ride doesn't have cameras, but it does have people hiding amongst the dolls. Watching you.

Why do you cocks always schedule these things like a week before it actually goes down? :colbert:

Peegee

Failjiro couldn't even visit PG when he was in Canada.

Right? Given a little more time, I might have made this one. :C

Shlup
05-18-2012, 07:13 AM
Don't lookit me; I'm always right here.

Jiro
05-18-2012, 07:32 AM
Y'all could've been like "HEY JIRO ARE YOU COMING TO WEST COAST?" and I would've been like "YEAH BOI WHEN DO YOU WANNA MEETUP?"

That's what foa did and shit is going down in DC in a few hours.

NorthernChaosGod
05-18-2012, 10:59 AM
Um, I'm not paying for Disneyland, guys.

Shlup
05-18-2012, 01:02 PM
So don't come then! I was going to get you a discount on your ticket but whaaaatever.

NorthernChaosGod
05-18-2012, 08:02 PM
Is it like half off? Because I'm broke, yo.

Jiro
05-18-2012, 09:42 PM
That's cool, just come party instead. Disneyland is expensive so I'm happy to come back another time if need be ('cause I'm broke too yo).

Freya
05-18-2012, 11:33 PM
I thought everyone knew dak was going to the west coast for like months because Sarah always goes "COME VISIT ME" every time he mentioned visiting people. Gosh eric, maybe you should pay more attention.

Peegee
05-18-2012, 11:45 PM
Is it like half off? Because I'm broke, yo.

you better save money for PG. I'm high maintenance.

Jiro
05-19-2012, 01:45 AM
Damn fucking right you are

NorthernChaosGod
05-19-2012, 02:40 AM
I will start having money to burn again next month because I'm starting work soon.

Shlup
05-19-2012, 03:50 AM
A ticket to one park will be $87 before my discount. Not sure how much my discount will be. If you guys want to do something else I gave Dak a handful of other options.

Unfortunately that twasn't me that you messaged. Nor do I think I could put you up, also unfortunately.

I am down for anything that we come up with. So, whatever the final decision is, you can count me in.

Jiro
05-20-2012, 06:32 AM
Well that's super awkward for whoever I messaged then. We'll figure summat out though bros.

Pike
05-21-2012, 08:57 PM
If I could snag myself some cheap airfare and had lots of advance notice I'd be up for this in the future. Like next year or something.

Also I'm counting on some serious amounts of Disneyland because I haven't been in like 14 years.

Jiro
05-22-2012, 05:57 AM
You're lucky I already saw you once or I'd punch you in the foot for that comment.

Pike
05-22-2012, 06:20 AM
:laughing:

alexande
05-22-2012, 07:45 AM
I will try to pick you up if I can.

Shlup
05-22-2012, 08:15 AM
How sweet! I'm looking forward to it!

Baloki
05-22-2012, 09:39 PM
This meet is now on the West Coast of England and will be held in Blackpool, Iceglow will be your host!

You should definitely do that! :D

Pike
05-23-2012, 01:42 AM
Iceglow will be your host!

your MUM will be your host, yeah yeah!

Baloki
05-23-2012, 01:53 AM
Iceglow will be your host!

your MUM will be your host, yeah yeah!

No, your MUM will be Iceglow!

NorthernChaosGod
05-23-2012, 04:28 AM
And then Iceglow was a zombie.

That's a 45 minute drive away for me, I'm there!

Much more appealing than a 7,000 mile round trip...

Pant Leg Eater from the Bad World
05-24-2012, 05:52 AM
So what are the final details for this shindig? Date? Time? Place? And such things?

Carpool?

Shlup
05-24-2012, 07:39 AM
I'm off on Saturday.

Options I can think of:
Disneyland (should be able to get through the day for about $100; free parking if we bring one car)
Downtown Disney (food, movie, ESPN Zone, stores, fireworks at 9:30)
Little Tokyo (parking is around $6-$12)
Cleopatra Exhibit at the California Science Center (http://www.californiasciencecenter.org/Exhibits/SpecialExhibits/Cleopatra/Cleopatra.php) ($20 + parking)
Scottish Festival (http://events.ocregister.com/costa_mesa_ca/events/show/259624084-scottish-festival)
My Little Pony art show (http://www.voiceplaces.com/my-little-pony-project-2012-group-show-los-angeles-1656303-e/)
Aquarium of the Pacific (http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CG0QFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.aquariumofpacific.org%2F&ei=3ci9T5D3N8msiAL0v-nhDQ&usg=AFQjCNGkR37xujEUbH0kSak6d_iHQU_qvg) ($25 + parking)
Santa Ana Zoo (http://www.santaanazoo.org/) ($8 + parking)


We can go out for ramen, pho, sushi, Indian, a clam bake... there's tons and tons of food options. My vote is either Disneyland or dinner and a movie. If there's a place we can hang out I can also mayhaps bring board games.

Pant Leg Eater from the Bad World
05-25-2012, 12:43 AM
So, Disneyland Saturday?

All in favor...

Miriel
05-25-2012, 08:07 AM
I haven't been to Disneyland in like 2 years! YEARS! Neverending tears. :crying2:

Someone get me a churro and a giant turkey leg!

Shlup
05-25-2012, 08:12 AM
Let's just go to fucking Disneyland. No one doesn't love Disneyland. I will check what my discounted ticket price is tomorrow.

Pant Leg Eater from the Bad World
05-25-2012, 08:54 PM
Lets do this!

EDIT:
What time? How will we all find each other?

Shlup
05-26-2012, 08:51 AM
Someone pick a time and text me: 951-818-9721

We can meet at my house. Text me for the address. I also forgot that Knott's is a cheaper theme park, since NCG said he wouldn't do Disneyland. Decide now!!!

Pant Leg Eater from the Bad World
05-26-2012, 06:38 PM
Dak, Julian, where are you?

Laddy
05-26-2012, 07:10 PM
I am angry I shall not appear. :(

Jiro
05-26-2012, 08:41 PM
Okay so I found some internet. I'm at a hotel in LA. I'm happy to do whatever but y'all have to come get me.

Pant Leg Eater from the Bad World
05-26-2012, 08:49 PM
Shall we try this tomorrow?

Knott's or Disneyland at about 10ish?

I can get into Knott's for free tomorrow, I think. Military Appreciation and all that. But I'd still be down for DLand.

Anyone heard from Julian?

Shlup
05-27-2012, 01:18 AM
I'll be at work tomorrow. Have fun!

Hollycat
05-27-2012, 01:25 AM
If we can get this for somewhere in California early next year I will participate.

Jiro
05-27-2012, 01:35 AM
I'mma slap you :argh:

Pant Leg Eater from the Bad World
05-27-2012, 01:46 AM
Booo! Do you work Monday?

How long are you in the area Jiro?

Shlup
05-27-2012, 02:43 AM
If you guys meet me at Disneyland at 10:00 tomorrow I can see about getting you discounted tickets and meet up with you when I get off work. But you guys better decide and Jiro needs transportation.

Jiro, if there's no one to carpool with, look into the train. I believe there's a metro station near Angel's Stadium, which is near Disneyland.

Pant Leg Eater from the Bad World
05-27-2012, 02:59 AM
Alright.

Jiro, is Shorty still with you? I can fit two, but it would be super cramped for somebody.

If you are down message me your hotel address and I will get you in the morning. And also some way to contact you would prolly be good.

NorthernChaosGod
05-27-2012, 03:00 AM
I'm afraid I'm going to have to pass on the meetup. I appreciate trying for something cheaper too, Amanda. <3

I think we should probably trying planning something out better like the East Coast one.

Pant Leg Eater from the Bad World
05-27-2012, 03:20 AM
We can always do Knott's still. It is $58 if you buy you ticket there. $37 if you buy it online.

Shlup
05-29-2012, 03:20 AM
The three of us went to Disneyland. It was good times. I almost beat my high score at Toy Story Midway Mania, but Jiro and Panty Eater also did really well. The lines weren't bad and we got Jiro through pretty much all the rides that any vacationer should see.

And now he's probably bumbling his way to LAX to attempt to get out of this country.

NorthernChaosGod
05-29-2012, 11:09 AM
Pics or it didn't happen.

Shlup
05-29-2012, 11:30 AM
Jiro's the only one who took pics.

Well, I took one of Ursula and Panty Eater took a couple of like Star Tours or something... I don't remember.

Pant Leg Eater from the Bad World
05-29-2012, 06:55 PM
Indeed, I only took a few pictures. I kept forgetting my phone can do that.

Here we have Shlup at waiting in line at Star Tours.

OK, OK I know that Dak left last Thursday, but I've been awfully busy since then and just haven't had the opportunity to share about his visit. So, in an attempt to correct this I want to say that Dakoda was a very awesome young man in word and deed. He not only lived up to my expectations of him, but he thoroughly impressed Don enough that Don went out of his way to personally invite him back if Dak decides to come back to California. Good job, Dakoda!

Since our visit together was limited to 2 days spread over 3, we made the decision to go spelunking up at California Caverns near San Andreas. I figured that since Dak has an affinity for falling into dark holes, the caves would present the perfect opportunity to practice his skills. Also, being so close to the San Andreas fault line presented the possibility that nature might reach out and help Dak into a hole or two! Well, nothing too dramatic happened in the caves (besides my claustrophobia rearing it's ugly head) we all made it out of the caves alive and in one piece. Below are a few snapshots we took:

Way to wear the whitest clothes you own in a cave Dak. Not a single fuck given.

I particularly like Dak's grin in the photo of just Dak and Don.
