    I have a 3 ring binder that contains all my printed maps for my trip.
    I made a cover for my binder. Do you like it? Should I change any colors?

    No it's not. I just realised that Moe spelled your name without the '3' so that means I did too. Damn him!

    It's too late though. I already printed it out.:(

    I don't care how you guys spelled it. The forum name is only spelled with a 3 because I couldn't access my original forum account. But everyone knows who you're referring to regardless.

    I am bringing my laptop with me but I am not sure how expensive the Internet access is at my hotel, so this
    might be last message in this thread for awhile.

    I am leaving work at 1:30PM Eastern and heading straight for CLE and then Sandusky.

    See you all beyond the veil!

    Hi guys! Hey Mentok, I saw you called! We're here! I'm glad you called, because as TNTrooper might've told you, our old phone had a bit of a... mishap in Arizona. I'm using an older phone that we were going to get rid of right now, but it's got none of the numbers in it that I've added in the past year. =( Oy.

    I'll try to call you and/or Moe once we get somewhere where I can get some service with the phone. I did finally manage to get 2 bars of service for this cell phone internet device my boss sent with me... my ability to get internet has been shoddy at best. =)

    Anyways, I'll see you guys there! I'll give you a call once we're ready to go!

    P.S. - The road between 71 North and this town is Creepy! well, at least at 1am. =)

    Aye, it was great hanging out with you guys! =) What a blast!

    It seems the timing was off on meeting up for gaming Mentok =( but we'll have to make up for it with some late night gaming at the next PAX! =)

    Also, we're in New Hampshire now! We survived! =) I have limited internet at the moment, but I'll drop by to say hi when I can before I get my own place/internet set up. =)

    I am sad that I did not get to return the park on Sunday but the goddess known as Geekgrrl had to be appeased.
    Here is why:

    Much of her Staurday was spent trudging around the park and then waiting for long periods of time while the
    fearless waited in line for their 'thrills and chills'. Then after waiting for close to two hours for us at the Millennium
    Force we found ourselves near the park exit. It was after 9PM, we were right at the exit so she longed to leave
    the park.

    But no. We had to soldier on to the Maverick. Getting there was half the battle since the main route was judged
    impassable due to the park deciding to turn a covered bridge into a tightly packed slow moving fog filled fright
    zone that certain members of our party could not traverse. The journey to other route through the dense crowds
    was long, confusing and hard on us all.

    When we finally arrive at the Maverick we find out that the line is of a 2 hour magnitude instead of the 45 minutes
    that we were told by one of our faster agents. The park was closing in less than 2 hours but we decided to get in
    line anyway. Once again Geekgrrl had to sit and wait for us with only the amusement of a (dreaded) mobile phone
    game (and Ben) to entertain her.

    Then I unilaterally decided to let HotSake share our hotel room and the rest of stay with us since he was flying out
    of CLE on the same day as her. HotSake is great of course and we ended up having fun, but at the time she was
    not too happy with me about the decision. When we finally started making our way to the exit she was not in a
    pleasant mood. I apologized to her about my selfishness and disregard for her needs and then Sake and I began to
    turn her frown upside down by telling her the INCREDIBLE and humorous stories that Moe's friend told us while in
    line for the Maverick. I shall not repeat them here, but they involve intoxicated cats, and a duel between a battle
    axe and a samurai sword where Moe's life was saved from utter ruin. All three of us were talking about these tales
    and we just began following the crowd out of the park.

    We were in the parking lot, looking for my car when tradgedy struck once again. We could not find my car because
    we were in the parking lot that is North of the entire park instead of the lot at the very South end of the park, it
    was after 12:15PM and we thought that we might not be able to walk through the park because it was closing. We
    were all angry and cursing our stupidity and I am surprised that Geekgrrl did not freak out or collapse on us.

    I offered to make the journey to the car and to drive it around the park to pick them up, but they preferred to come
    with me. We managed to get back into the park (which is as easy as jumping the turnstile since no one was watching
    the exit) and we walked all the way through the park to my car.

    Geekgrrl climbed in and collapsed in the back seat with my super soft blanket while Sake and I began the battle to
    actually leave the parking lot. We were not far from the intersection that would take us to the main exit road but
    it took us at least 30 minutes to reach it due many other drivers being too meek and unassertive.

    This my friends is why Geekgrrl has a deap hatred for Cedar Point and why she refused to return the next day for
    more punishment.

    One day... I hope to return to Cedar Point to ride all the coasters I did not get to ride on Saturday. The Mantis,
    Power Tower, maXair, Skyhawk, Wicked Twister and Top Thrill Dragster are on the top of that list.

    well put, for the most part.

    however, as i recall, we didn't even discuss going back to the park once Sunday came. sure, mentok dubbed it "my day" in acquiescence to what had transpired, but that didn't mean another trip was out of the question. *thinks* okay, yeah, maybe it did. :P truth is, i had a lot of fun up until the Maverick hooha. i'm regretful that i'm more of a chickenshit than i thought i was, but man, those drops just kill me. i'm glad i met you guys, some again, some for the first time. i want to see those group pics!

    also, you guys missed out on some killer Rock Band. i am unable to think of "Pump It Up" or mentok farting into the microphone without laughing my nuts off.

    Oh yes the farting into the mic was awesome.

    Also I will try to get that video of me singing up onto YouTube soon.

    EDIT:
    I am uploading the video while I watch yesterday's Heroes episode. It will be ready soon.

    dude, i could not possibly be making a more idiotic face in that second picture if i tried.

    i've captioned my meager pics, but Picasa's being an ass and can't find where i put them.. i'll have to figure this out tomorrow. it seems really powerful, but i can't get a handle on that program.

    we played RB2 until 3 am saturday, midnight sunday. that might not seem so bad except we watched a movie after that and we had to get up at 8. :P

    Oh yes and then there was GravyRobber...

    He is like my favorite Penny Arcade forum member now. I like him more than Moe and Geekgrrl and ElectricTurtle
    and even VT.

    You may be asking, "Why's that mentok? Did he make you a cake and give you a million dollars?"
    Here is my answer:

    I <3 Matthew Perry
    GravyRobber = Matthew Perry - Famous - A Few Inches

    So basically, I was at a theme park with a short Matthew Perry who was actually talking to me! He even thought
    that some of my 'jokes' were funny which is high praise coming from someone like him. I just want to be near
    him and talk to him all day every day forever and ever and ever. I should find out where he lives and consider
    moving into his neighborhood. All of my friends live far away from me anyway.


    I am prepared to say that he is my 4th favorite person in the entire world. The only people I like more are
    Brandon Daiker, my roommate from college who I have known for 6 years, Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik.
    Brandon is also a real character just like GravyRobber.
