...Planes, Games and Beads.

My time in Alaska is up and I'm leaving tomorrow (Sunday) morning back to that cold place. I've never been "on" a plane before so this should be interesting. And I say "on" a plane because I've been INside a plane before for school trips but we've never gone anywhere. It was just a tour.

I packed up my suitcases this morning and my big one is just under 50lbs and the smaller one I have to borrow is even lighter than that so I should be okay. I have to switch planes in Seattle, arriving at 11:25am and departing at 1:42pm so if you're in the area, we should hang out. Except I'm not going through security again.

Anyways, during my time here, I've played A LOT of video games. At least I think it's a lot. Mostly Uncharted and Uncharted2. I've played the first one on my brother's account but since I got my own PlayStation3 I had to redo it, and then play the second one. I'm still doing them over and over again to get all the trophies. I think I've become a trophy whore.

I've started playing Ratchet and Clank futuretoolsofdestruction and while my first sitting I realize, "I've done a lot, where are the trophies?" just to realize that it doesn't give me any T_T Same with Metal Gear Solid 4. I mean, I probably could have looked it up but MGS4 was a gift and Ratchet and Clank came free with my PlayStation so I didn't bother. And while it's the game play that matters, I'd still like something to show for it.

Continuing on with my scattered thought blog, traveling and going home sucks. I got to go shopping to buy my family souvenirs and it was terrible. Have you ever gone somewhere and seen something that just absolutely reminded you of someone and were like, "THEY WOULD LOVE THAT!!!" ? Yeah, well I could only manage to say that about gifts for my brothers. Other than that, shopping for my parents and cousins was difficult. I got "Fireweed Honey" for my mom, aunt and cousin. Wtf are they supposed to do with that? It tastes like normal honey.

For my dad, best friend's dad, and little brother, I got these weird creepy bugs in glass as key-chains and a bracelet, as well as a little arrow head made from obsidian. It's pretty. My friend's mom is getting a little igloo with a wolf in it for her dashboard.

My little cousin Alex and her sister are getting really cool pink "Wrangell, AK" t-shirts, "American Girl" books and craft books. Does it surprise you we don't get the American Girl series in that cold place?

My brother and best friend are getting "Wrangell, AK" t-shirts, and these really awesome DearS key-chains of the main characters that I found last minute in a weird bead store. You walk in and it's all these pretty beads and bead jewelry, until you go to the back and they have everything anime which was really surprising. I nearly peed myself when I saw mint condition Sailor Moon videos. But I didn't get any T_T

Perhaps I'll get them when I come back?

Thanks for reading this hard-to-read blog.

Technically you fly INside a plane too, not ON. ;)

…I would have liked some Fireweed Honey. Thanks for thinking of me. >_>

As for the animations…Can't say I enjoyed it. It was actually pretty irritating until nipple showed up.

I am trying to think of a funny comment reply to extravisual's, but I can't think of any that aren't too racist
