Jess came back in town and got us all together, a rare occasion. We went to Kenny's and drank. Jess and I were having lots of fun together and we got to talking with Aubrey which was very nice. She never talks but we got her drunk and she just turned into quite the little chatterbox! We stayed up all night talking about boys (tee-hee). The only thing that would make the night better is having my Taylor there. :) Only about a month til she comes back home though!

Finally! A good day of work. They had me on this weird schedual where I was working lunch all week. Finally tonight I work a dinner shift and God! How I miss these wonderful people! Mornings it's always, me+Bob+Tanya and all the servers in the morning are just like... blah. No one wants to be there and it seems like no one is happy in the morning. But I was so excited to see Donnie tonight I almost peed my pants! Seriously he's the funniest person I have met in my life, he is brilliant at cracking jokes. He'll scrounge a joke out of anything anyone says or does, it's amazing. And I got to work with Bryan, he's so much fun. Someone you can act like a dork around. And I'm finally coming around to Laurel. I never really talked to her that much before but tonight we ordered food, sat down and talked and she gave me a ride home. We made good chat. I have yet to work with my Victoria and my Kelsey though! I miss them very much. But Victoria and I went out to eat last night and had a good two hours at Sharis catching up on our lives the past two weeks (cause it feels like years when we part for more than a couple of days, haha).
All in all today was good. I don't think I've laughed so much in months. I feel good now :)

Going to Europe made me feel so small in the world. Theres so much to see and so much to do. I spent two weeks in two separate countries and still couldnt fit in everything I wanted to do. Now I just want to see everything. Theres so much to conquer and so little time and money to do so. So heres a rundown of the trip. Keep in mind this is not in any chronological order, I dont remember what days we did what things, but Ill try to pretend





We drove 13 hours to the San Francisco airport. Then we took a 10 hour plane flight into London city. We met up with his father Jim, aunt Faith and Uncle Steve. We took one train and two tube (underground subway) rides to our hotel. I think our first night we just went out to eat and did a pub crawl. I got a bit drunk and threw up that night and morning.

The second morning the other four went to changing of the guards while I was asleep and sick from the night before. We went to the London tower. London tower is a (you guessed it) tower full of London history. They have guides that take you around and show you every part of the tower and tell you its history. We followed one into a church. They had the crown jewels there, it was beautiful. Rooms were just full of royalties crowns, swords, clothing, jewelry, and dining ware.

Then! We rode the London eye which is this huge Farris wheel type thing that lets you see all of London. We then went down and took a boat ride that led us through the London bridge, big Ben, and various other magnificent bridges and buildings.

We of course saw a couple of castles. They were gorgeous, everything there is beautiful. Everything is made out of stone, even the houses. What was left of the castles was amazing to see. I snapped pictures everywhere; each corner you turned was like another photo op. Oh how much more beautiful England is than Lynnwood!! We went to the London Dungeon; it wasnt an actual dungeon, just a mock up of one. The very beginning was a labyrinth. It was a dark room with mirrors everywhere so you couldnt see where you were going. It was really fun though, everyone in the group started following us. Faith goes,

What if all these people start following us?!

Faith, theyre following us.

Hey lets follow those people!

Faith, those people are us!!

It was quite entertaining, both Michael and I got singled out during the performances. In one room they were explaining the plague and they pulled me up and told me that I had the plague, har-har. Then they had a mock of an old trial. They asked Michael to the stand and accused him of having sex with a horse, ha-ha, which actually was quite funny.

After three nights in the city we went to Faith and Steves house in Somerset, about 3 hours north of London. There house was so cute, along with their little Mercedes car, 2 dogs and 1 cat. In Somerset we went to their local castle. How cool, I want my own local castle! We also went to Stonehenge which is all these giant stones placed on top of each other. It was amazing to see.

After another 3 nights in Somerset we took a plane to Edinburgh Scotland which was my favorite! It was like the whole country was built in the 13th century out of stone. Like they never demolished a thing, the beth western we stayed in looked like a castle. It was much more beautiful than London.

In Scotland we went to the Scotland museum, did a ghost hunt, and an underground tour. Oh and a literary pub crawl which was quite fun. It was these two men who have their own thing set up where they bring a group of people to pub after pub while they recite Scottish poetry and tell us stories. That was good.

After another 3 nights in Scotland we took a 3 hour train ride down to York. Basically all we did there was drink. I got smashed off of 4 beers and a shot of I dont know what. The beer there is phenomenal. I never drink it nor do I really like it but its hard to respect American beer like bud, coors, busch, ech! They have really good ales, fresh brewed, dark, mm! But that night I was really proud of myself, I drank perfectly. I got wasted and had fun, I told my own self when to stop and I didnt puke! A revelation! My first time drunk not throwing up! Ha-ha, that may be sad but I really was proud of myself. We stayed in a cute little bed and breakfast. The rooms locked up with old time keys that you see in movies and keyholes you can see through.

The next morning we woke up and took a 2.5 hour train ride to London again. Went out to a good dinner and had our last night of drinking. Went to the hotel, woke up at 6:30am (9pm the previous night in Wa.). We got all ready, had breakfast and boarded onto the plane at 10:35am. We took our 10 hour flight and wound up in San Francisco at 1pm. Drove up to Oregon, got to Medford at 8:30. Slept till midnight, woke up, drove 8 hours back home. That was the longest day of my life 32 hours! Now Im here in boring ol Lynnwood. But thats okay, I probably ran out of money! Time to get back to the old grind.



One sad thing, I realized that the light meter on my good camera is broke. That will take a couple hundred to fix. And I dont know where the USB cable for my digi is so it will be a while for pictures.

I now wish to travel everywhere, so if anyone is up for going somewhere exciting in the future, hit me up Im up for cheap travel and fun. ;)

We went on another ski trip. And as we drove home through the not-so populated areas, it made me sad. The sky was gorgeous! It was dark out, no clouds, the stars were filling the sky. It made me realize how much Lynnwood sucks, you never get that. It was beautiful. I miss it so much, stars how I love you!
And the third time I fell at Mission, my back hurt. And still does.
Less than a week til we leave this place!! I am meanwhile keeping myself busy with work. Tuesday was my 4th double in a row, in which I both opened and closed. Double time for me. Oops.

It's been a sad few days.
R.I.P. SEBASTIAN FISHY

Last night sebastian died. He was being attacked by some sort of virus, there was a growth of fuzzies all over him. Yesterday he turned upside down and struggled to breathe for hours until he died. We drove him up to the mountians and buried him last night. Michael was crying all day, he's so sad. We drained the 230 gallon tank today and will move the giant tank probably next week. Aaaaw :..(

But on another note I got my digi and like it. I purchased a 1gb SD memory card today for $46 new. It should arrive in the mail in about two weeks or so. Tonight we are going out to see final destination 3. Tomorrow Taylor and Joseph are here, woohoo!!!
And that's all.

And this is so true...

Well that's some of the stuff I want to do. I've spent a good amount of time reading books we've checked out. My mom bought me a london book for xmas and gave it to me yesterday. I bought a 5mp digital camera online the other day for only about $120 including original price, tax and shipping. New. I want to buy a better memory card for it (1gb at least) that should last me the 13 days we're there without having a computer to upload them onto. Plus I'll bring my regular 35mm camera for actual pictures that I want to turn out. I'm HF ready for this!

Hmm. I'm having a lonely day. I was just so stressed at work that I was having stomache pains, shakes and felt as if I could vommit. And I come home and michael has to close now so he gets home past midnight, he isn't even home yet and all I want is a hug. And I talked to kelsey a lot today and all she can talk about is how she loves her "daxy" and she has to leave him and I feel bad... I'm sorry this is a weird post but I had to type about something.
And I'm home and the TV is randomly on channel 9 and this sad music is playing. With a harmonica.

So I attempted a small party last night. Cheap motel (motel 6), cheap alcohol (McCormic's vodka, Cabana Boy Rum). Lots of people: Traci, Kyle, Jon + gf, Kenny + gf, Nick, Greg. Then Christina and Kanani stopped by just for a bit. I don't remember why they didn't stay but they stopped by to give me champagne, sparks and magnum condoms I think?! I got pretty drunk and only puked once, hooray! Oh and Victoria stopped by too. I couldn't stop giving my og girls hugs. I eventually started becoming a sad drunk and crying about nothing. I was one of the first people to leave my party leaving my jacket, purse and electric toothbrush. Fuck I hope someone picked it up! Thanks everyone for coming :)

Merry (Maaary!) Christmas and happy new year. I spent mine in California which was wonderful. Everyone had a great time, everything went perfectly. Besides the fact of me getting sick, I was up for four hours puking one morning. I guess I had some bad pizza hut cheese pizza. Everyone was getting drunk in canada for new years and I was way jelous. The last time I was drunk was... in Canada this summer.

Taylor is leaving by the end of this month and I am crushed. We spent our childhood together. She is my oldest and my best friend. Even though we don't currently get to see much of eachother, it's still so hard to think that she is so damn far away. Ugh.
