Zelda: Wind Waker

John and I have been tackling Zelda for a few weeks now. John plays, and I point out things John sometimes misses. I'm his wingman! We are now down to the Tri-force hunt...sounds like a challenge. This is one of my favorite characters, because he is so adorable when he waddles around. Reminds me of Harmony with the waddle and the jingle of his bells. Cute!

In other news, John and I will be celebrating the New Smoking Ban for Colorado by going to Old Chicago. Finally, I can enjoy one of my favorite restaurants and breathe clean air. Everyone that knows me knows I hate cigarette smoke...only thing worse...Cigar smoke. Cough, cough....gagggg! Goodbye and good riddance to you all!!!

The World was Our Burrito

Pam, Chris, John, and I went on a roadtrip to the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas. Chris arrived from NY on Friday, June 9th, and Pam arrived from NY on Saturday, June 10th. From there we ate breakfast/lunch at an IHOP near our house. We went to dinner at Old Chicago and talked about our trip.

We left for the Grand Canyon on June 11th at 5:30am. We made it to our destination by 6pm. We stayed the night in a Holiday Inn Express and had dinner at some cafe. The best part was finding a Carvel across the street for some ice cream although this Carvel doesn't compare to a real Carvel....they only exist in New York.

We left around 7:30am towards Las Vegas. We arrived around 1pm, and we were able to check-in at the Monte Carlo. We ended up staying two nights instead of one. We realized we were just too tired to drive out of our way to Roswell. Oh well, John and I will just have to go another time to hang out with the aliens.

Funny thing is while we were in the car, we talked about favorite places to eat. We mentioned Carvel, which we found. We then mentioned Nathan's, and Las Vegas provided. We ate there for lunch our first day in town. The only downfall was the money gouging. Almost 8 bucks for one hotdog....John and I got the two hotdog special which was only a dollar more. We didn't feel as bad about being overcharged. We also talked about Ben and Jerry's....also in Vegas, but we were too late to get a Heathbar crunch for Pam. We went to a B&J in Colorado, but they didn't have Pam's favorite Heathbar crunch flavor.*Sigh*

The Gang eating some steak at the Traildust Steakhouse. We were back in Denver by this point, and we all survived. Woo Hoo...roadtrips are rough, but we made it and didn't hate each other at the end of it all. :)

John and I doing some DDR at Fat City in Littleton, Colorado. We rock!!!

John, Chris, and I after a game of bowling at Fat City.

Ahhhhh, how sweet!!!! Pam resting on her teddy bear as we travel through the hot f@#*ing desert.

Like all princesses, I arrived by horse and buggy. I don't need a car to travel.;)

We stayed at the Monte Carlo...we were on the 23rd floor, room 310.

John and I in front of a fountain. I think it was a fountain in front of the Paris hotel and casino. Look how cute we are!

John playing some DDR in the New York, New York hotel and casino. I messed up and hit the wrong button, so John ended up having to use both mats. Crazy!!!!

We saw the Blue Man Group show at the Venetican. Pam and Chris got to be in the show briefly as the late arrivals. Great show!!!!

Me in cute animals overload! We were looking at the Rainforest Cafe as we were walking in and out of casinos on our way to the Blue Man show.

Now that's a spicy meatball!!!! John and Chris trying to act tough in front of the New York, New York. Ooooooooooo....I'm shaking in my sandals!!!

Pam and I on our floor at the Monte Carlo waiting for the elevator.

Close-up of the Blanco sibs...John and Pam say cheese!!!!

Ooooo lala....Manhattan posing for the camera on the bed at the Holiday Inn Express.

John and I and our friend, Chris and John's sister Pam are all going on a roadtrip with each other starting Sunday. Of course, what decided to rear its ugly little unwelcomed visitor that comes each month. Sometimes I hate being a girl!!!! I just wanted a nice vacation without any hassles from my stupid body. frustrating!!! The last few trips that John and I have gone on I wasn't safe from that annoying bitch. Thankfully, it at least started today, so I have a couple of days to ward off the cramps. annoying!!!!

Heat Wave

It was 98 degrees today....I hate this hot weather!!! It's only June and we are already having record high temps....these are temperatures you see in August not June. Give me 75 degrees everyday, and I'll be a happy camper.

Anyway, I'm using this picture, because I feel like a flabby, flab flab!!!! I need to do some DDR later....I can't let the flab win!

These Are Days

Band Shot closing out the AC for 2005/2006 year!

These Are Days
These are the days
These are days you’ll remember
Never before and never since, I promise
Will the whole world be warm as this
And as you feel it,
You’ll know it’s true
That you are blessed and lucky
It’s true that you
Are touched by something
That will grow and bloom in you

These are days that you’ll remember
When May is rushing over you
With desire to be part of the miracles
You see in every hour
You’ll know it’s true
That you are blessed and lucky
It’s true that you are touched
By something that will grow and bloom in you

These are days
These are the days you might fill
With laughter until you break
These days you might feel
A shaft of light
Make its way across your face
And when you do
Then you’ll know how it was meant to be
See the signs and know their meaning
It's true
Then you’ll know how it was meant to be
Hear the signs and know they’re speaking
To you, to you

Here is the song we did a video for in November's AC. We also did a Real World spoof, but we haven't seen it put together yet. See, three people in Adventure Club, also in the video, turned against all of us for some deranged reason. Actually, what it comes down to is overly dramatic lover's triangle between them and instead of dealing with our reactions they've written off the group. Aaron was really close to these people, so he was having a hard time editing. I can only imagine! Just seeing the video with them in it was a little's as if these people have died....sad.

Anyway, despite all the drama and hard times.....Thanks for the memories....until next season with the remaining cool ACers it won't be long until we meet again. :)

A happy shot of everyone that came to the end of the year Adventure Club. From forward to back: Minka, John, Kevin, Greg, Me, Shawn, Aaron, Colleen, Mike, and Adriana.

Let the beatings begin! Some Russian Volleyball in City Park with from left to right: John, Kevin, Shawn, Aaron, and Minka. Good times!!!
