ITT a TSC meet that doesn't involve Rolken and flyby
« on: May 15, 2009, 01:45:14 AM »
As a few of you on the IRC know, there was a southeast (ish) Michigan meet this past Wednesday involving myself, SonicAD, donnashowl, and her boyfriend (because he insisted she isn't that great of a driver) at Oakland Mall in Troy. Initially met at Kerby's Koney Island. They didn't wait for me despite the fact that I said I wouldn't arrive until around 5 (which I did), so I got there and they were already done eating. Then we just kinda hung. Walked over to the arcade and watched this guy be crazy at look-alike-DDR while we talked next to Gerbil's favorite pinball machine. (...Wheel. Not Rick Astley.)

We also got to play the "pronounce SBW's last name" game. As expected, everybody failed. (I know only a few people not related to me that can pronounce it correctly.)

Anyway there's a pic or two, but Ben (donna's bf) has the pics right now. So everyone saying "pics or it didn't happen" has to wait for her. (And yes, we did comment on that.)

Other highlights:
-My first words of the day: "See? I showed up this time!"
-Us talking about how we all fail at Sonic. (Including me commenting that RAing Shadow isn't as hard because you don't lose everything when you get hit.)
-Sega claw machine in the arcade. Baby Silver Surfer? Baby Hulk (who looked like Gumby with hair)? Abu?
-Finding out that donna has a friend whose redeeming point is a Yaoi obsession
-Obligatory "I CALL BS" and "mmmballs" references, even though neither of them got the latter because neither was around for the !quote 8 shenanigans. (I decided not to move on to "also I kissed a guy.") Actually AD did a really good "I CALL BS" complete with a dramatic lunge that I'm surprised we didn't get weird looks for.

One of them will have to post what happened before or after I left though. I had to run because I had to live up to a challenge I made, and I had $700 worth of miniatures in my trunk. >_>

well, I'm about to prove that it happened. But first my notes.

I was all for waiting, since I had had the foresight to eat beforehand (the particular member of Ben's fleet* we took is the only one that ever induces car sickness in me), but Ben and AD trumped me :p. I also think it wise to point out the lols of us meeting at Kerby's Coney Island. Coney Islands are very much a southern Michigan thing, but for those fo you who aren't familiar with the term? Chili dogs. LOL Chili dogs. Oddly, I was the only one who didn't get one, as I generally don't like hot dogs. My burger and fries were awesome though. Also, on the way to the arcade I had my very first Orange Jullius. Too bad it's a milk product. :(

We also did some drooling over the gamestop and reminiscing about Babbages. Ahh, the good old days. The arcade we stopped at... I don't remember the name, but it had an eagle. LOL Americana, lol Eagleland TV tropes. :3

At some point, I don't remember how, we ended up mentioning Dateline NBC. I don't need to explain the jokes that ensued. You can guess.

IIRC, Ben also made a crude joke about my last name.

Anyway, the better of the two pictures is attached. Ben was extremely worried we wound run into someone he doesn't like, so he wasn't on the ball about telling us he was taking pictures. That's why I look so nervous and have my eyes closed. >_<

* Ben's Fleet is his collection of vehicles. Some are not his, but he has access to them. He owns about five cars, his mom leaves one of hers at the house, and then he can borrow his grandparents' whenever the heck he wants. So the fleet consists of about seven vehicles, four of which are classic cars and two of which I can actually drive. The count goes up to eight if you count my car. Hypothetically I could have driven the one we took that day, a lol Pontiac, but I'm too inexperienced for anything south of M-46, I kid you not.

I love my playoff beard. >_>

Also, lolenglishmajor, Donna was the only one who noted the Coney Island + Chili Dogs + Sonic meet = hilarity.

American Fun Center I believe it was. Something silly like that.

Chili dogs...

I loves the cartoon, and I've been told that either I'm sonic incarnate, or I must've eaten him at some point, because I wolf down chili dogs like there's no tomorrow...

because, after all, how do I know there will be?

OH hey, while I'm at it, AD, Spinny, doesn't Ben look like he could be Eggman if he had no hair and a moustache? :3
