Well, I won't be on the plane for a few more hours, but I figured I'd toss this up. Everyone take care and I'll be back on late Sunday. Why? Because right after I come home there's EVO. XD

See ya later! :DDDD
dominochan: (optic attorney blast)
I just walked in the door from my trip to Houston.

I think I'll go crash now.
dominochan: (do it with style)
I'll see you good folks in a week! Take care! :D

SAN DIEGO!

Sep. 14th, 2010 02:39 pm
dominochan: (huh)
Okay, I think I got most of my photos uploaded and ready to go. So now here's a recap of the trip to SAN DIEGO!

Dy and I drove down on Friday afternoon and managed to make it to the hotel around 7pm. We hit a snag with the directions since we were on Broadway and we needed WEST Broadway. After a little while, we found the hotel and met up with le Robin and Annie. After that, TACOS.

Photo heavy from here on in. )

All in all, a great time. I hope to be back soon... as long as I don't have to drive as much. XD
dominochan: (yes!)
Just got in from San Diego about 20 minutes ago. Will post a couple of pics later.

All I can say is this: food, friends, and fun.

FANTASTIC.
dominochan: (viva estados unidos)
Dy and I are headed out! See ya when we get back!

Only a few more days to the 2nd. I can do this... XD

I have the hotel/car booked and I think I have enough saved up for the proper expenses. It just can't get here soon enough.

Also, ice cream pizza at Maggie Moo's. MUST TRY.
dominochan: (working)
I'm planning out stuffs for San Diego today, since it just hit me that va-ca is less than a month away. So far, I have directions for the hotel, Lucha Libre taco shop, and from the hotel to Robin's place, and from there to the Wild Animal Park. The only thing I'm really dreading is San Diego traffic. Ugh, I HATE DRIVING IN THAT CITY. But since it's not Comic Con season, it should be slightly easier to navigate... maybe.

All I need to do is reserve my rental car and see how much spending money I can muster. Man, I can't wait for vacation. XD
dominochan: (doink)
So my first year of school has officially ended. I don't have my Purchasing grade yet, but I passed Intro to Hospitality with flying colors. It feels weird not to have to wake up early on Monday morning, but don't worry. That'll change come June when I take a month-long crash course in Sanitation. 4 days a week at the Cheyenne campus for 2 hours a day. I'm just glad it's only for the month of June.

Other than that, it's been pretty uneventful around here. The RP scene has been stable, been hanging out with friends, and cooking more at home. Hell, we're even getting [livejournal.com profile] xdevilskissx back on track.

I still wish I could visit Texas this fall. But that's okay. I have an awesome trip set up now that I've filled out my vacation slip for Labor Day.

So yes, quiet days have been quiet...

I dig it most of the time. I'm incredibly picky due to my crack-infused background, though. I feel it's a great way to flesh out characters who never get much of a chance in their canons. But you really have to dig through the sludge in order to find something worth reading. But when you get there, it's worth the digging.

Okay, so!

I may have solved my previous vacation conundrum. This is what I have so far:

It would be the first weekend of September (Labor Day weekend), and [livejournal.com profile] dynamo_hunter_a will fly in that Wednesday. Friday, we'll drive out to San Diego and do stuffs with [livejournal.com profile] orochi_phoenix. We'd head out that Monday. Then Dy flies back out next Wednesday. Remind me to hop on tonight so we can discuss costs, etc.

Also, I haven't forgotten about you, [livejournal.com profile] arrshley. If you're still interested in visiting, lemme know. :3
dominochan: (faust is CUTE!)
SO YES! I had a blast in Tejas. I got my fill of casual French food, Cajun, Chinese, Japanese, and everything in between.

Being in Houston again was weird in a fun way. I hung out with my dad and toured the city's comic book shops (The zoo was packed to the brim, so we couldn't get in). I managed to score a Bruno/Sticky Fingers figure, Jojo's vol. 6 & 9, Keroro vol. 18, a Santo luchador magnet, and a Hanshin Tigers Hello Kitty strap for le Todd. I also got to see the city where I grew up, and that was a bit of a mindfuck. So much had changed, yet it was still small.

And the beer... OH THE BEER! I tried so many new kinds and re-discovered my favorite stout. Dare I say it, St. Arnold's amber is superior to New Belgium's Fat Tire. Yes, it's that good. On the topic of booze, I met up with Will at a local pub that didn't even have English food. FAIL. And when I went out with my longtime friend Mary, most of Houston's bars ran out of Guinness. On St. Patrick's Day. DOUBLE FAIL. Then some guy was looking over my shoulder when I was texting Robin at the bar. TRIPLE FAIL.

This trip also reinforced my motivation to move to Austin. The traffic is a little cluttered, but still miles better than the idiot drivers in Vegas. And the feeders help me immensely. Once I'm done with my edjumacation here, I'm packing up. *Sends out massive Nana hugs to Eric, Zappa, Geoff, Kimba, and the rest of the Austin folks I met* Thank you guys for an awesome time. :3 I wish I got more pictures of everything, but that's okay. There's always next time.

NOW! RP-wise, I was just gonna ask:

Any thoughts/opinions on [livejournal.com profile] mayfield_rpg (YES I'M STILL CONSIDERING IT) and [livejournal.com profile] xi_rpg? I'm more interested in the latter since I really need a place to put my AU!Ky and possibly my AU!Venom.
dominochan: (maturity)
I'M HOME!!!!!!!

And I am... gonna hit the hay soon.

*saves game with dad and gets money for her debit account*
dominochan: (peace!)
I'm waiting on my bedsheets to dry so I can make my bed before I go.

SOON I'LL BE THERE GUYS! SEE EVERYONE FRIDAY! :D

You guys behave yourselves while I'm away.

-Nana
dominochan: (up to no good)
Today was my shopping day. El Todd and I went to Red Rock Canyon first for some photog work, and after that we hit up a few places to gather stuff for my trip to Tejas. You guys are in for a nice little Vegas package. :3

I think I'm covered for the trip. I have my plane ticket, car reservation, stuff from here, and a mental list of what I need to gorge on when I'm there. Todd wants me to bring him back a girl, but I don't think one will fit in my carry-on luggage.

For now, I'mma unwind before I head home. See ya in a bit!
dominochan: (I drink to that!)
I'm in Houston during St. Patrick's Day.

...I dunno why, but that picked up my mood significantly. Dad, can we buy a 6-pack of Guinness? :D
dominochan: (lol vegas)
OKAY, time for me to start planning for ze trip. I'm severely lagging in getting Kimba's Vegas package together, so I'll see about doing that this or next week. I have one component from his chosen casino thus far...

ERIC, WILL, ED: I'm planning to rent the car on March 12th. When is the best time to pick you guys up (Ed and Will) and when's the best to arrive at your place (Eric)?

I've also been kicking around the idea of doing some baking while I'm up in Austin. I sort of need a kitchen for that sort of thing, so who would like to volunteer a kitchen? And would you prefer a cake, pie, or cookies? :3

I am gonna be one busy Nana that weekend. And it's going to be awesome.
dominochan: (kururu blows you up nao)
Vacation time can't get here soon enough. I really want to see all of you guys in Texas, and I cannot wait to do a little apartment hunting while I'm there.

I'm really hoping I can utilize my certification there once I move. I know tourism and hospitality aren't big industries over there, but I want to bring what makes (made?) Vegas a travel destination. That means lots of delicious desserts at reasonable prices. :3

Speaking of le Vegas, Todd and I did some photography work at City Center, a giant new resort/condo/shopping area. I'll be uploading the pics when I get home, but I can tell you right now, driving through the self-parking was like taking a trip back to the 80's. It was pretty surreal.
dominochan: (lol vegas)
I forgot to mention, I am also getting an impressive chunk of change back from the gubment. Not only can I afford to visit Houston/Austin, I can actually either invest in a new computer OR a laptop/netbook. AND I have money left over for savings. :O That's impressive. Todd, I'm still considering the Wii, so don't rule that out either. I just don't want to squander everything. XD

EVO's announced their lineup:

BlazBlue
SF II HD Remix
Player's Choice (Voting's going on at SRK right now, but no Guilty Gear = no vote)
Super SF IV
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom
Tekken 6

It's being held at Caesar's Palace July 9th-11th. You better believe the Vegas crew will be there as usual. Still, why Caesar's Palace? They need to quit migrating, I swear...
dominochan: (EEEAAAAATTTT)
Since I posted two memes for one last time, I'll take this post to keep tabs on my vacation. Although it's gonna be more to look at apartments, I still want to hang out with everyone while I'm in Austin. :3

-Book flight
-Reserve car
-Bring stuff from here

Things I want to do:

-Kerbey Lane
-Arcade UFO
-Lots of fighting games, if possible
-RELAX DAMMIT XD

If there's anything you want to drag me to do, let me know.
dominochan: (supah dynamic cooking time!)
I just checked my grades for the semester. I seriously thought I was going to bomb after how my cooking final turned out despite how hard I rocked the baking final. I passed both classes with a B and a B- respectively.

Awww yeah. Now I need to see if I can sign up for the chocolate course over the summer. Not to mention that I have the spring semester around the corner. Fortunately, I'm taking a break from all that cooking. Time to learn the other side of pastry arts, stuff like purchasing and the outline of working in the Hospitality Industry!

AND BEFORE I FORGET...

I need to start planning for my Texas trip. So far, I have a place to crash in Austin (thanks, Eric!), and I know how much my ticket to Houston and a rental will set me back. Sadly, my friend Todd won't be joining me.

Also, this trip will be more of a scouting mission. I wanted to check out apartments and the like, so if some of you guys want to come along and show me around, you're more than welcome to do so. If it's in my budget, I'll even buy booze for you guys. XD
