So yesterday, possibly one of the best days of my life, well, after about Noon.
Tyler came and picked me up in his new car, a little red '89 hatchback Honda Civic. Not too bad of a car, especially for a first one. He doesn't have his licence yet, he can start trying for it...tomorrow actually, but yes, that alone was exciting. His mum overreacts a little with his driving, but w/e.
When we got to his house, we went to Humptys for breakfast, woo! Then we came back, and slept off a lot of the food. Then we headed over to Stampede. The first thing we found, of course, was the Slingshot and the Skyscraper. Tyler informed me that I was going to be going on one of the two, no matter what. So I told him to pick one, and I'd go on it (I promised him I'd go on any ride he wanted to go on, rather silly of me). We eventually ended up going on the Slingshot. While we were waiting in line we ran across Amanda, Justin, Pillsbury and Kelsey. Justin and Pills were going on the slingshot ahead of us, We talked for a bit, then watched them go up. Ty and I went into the line and we went our seperate ways. Then it was our turn. The butterflies didn't actually hit until I was on the thing. The Carnies that were running it were having faaaar too much fun with their job. Far to much.
You don't really realize how high you go on that thing until you look down because of the flip it does at the top. When you get up there, when you finally see how high you go, you just go breathless. Then you take a quick breath in so you can scream as you go down. Then back up again, then down again. It's unbeleiveable. I loved it. If it didn't cost $70 for both of us, I'd go on again as fast as I could. Next year, we're bringing more money, and we're going on both!
Anywho, after that we went in search of more rides. We ended up going on this one where the cars spun in a circle, then went sideways into the air. Then we went on the bumper cars, much fun was had. Then we went on the Twin Flip. Holy crap. I took some convincing to go on that thing, but in the end, so worth it. There are two huge arms on the thing, with three sets of three cars on the ends. You go on it, it starts spinning you in a circle on the ground. Then the cars move up and go sideways, then further. After that, they start flipping upside down and such. You're completely out of control, and tho I was scared, it was the second best ride I went on.
Tyler ended up winning me a Stewie doll from a throwing game. He also won me a stuffed pig I have dubbed Mr. Bacon at the "Guess your weight" thing. I'm very happy!
We got some of the best lemonaid I've ever had, fudge, cotton candy, a caramel apple, minidoughnuts and some absolutely awful pizza.
We also went to Matt Mayes and El Torpedo, tho they stopped being all that interesting after three songs, so we left. We walked around for a while then ran into Pills and Amanda and them again, only now they also had Chad and his girlfriend. We talked, they left to get drunk, and we left to wander some more. Then we went to watch the fireworks, and found them again. The fireworks were awesome, like, midblowingly awesome. They rocked. And that was the end of my awesome day. It tops yours, no matter what you say. Ha.
