Headed to our nations capital today to apply for our marriage license... We will be LEGALLY married by the end of July. Then comes the planning for the Church wedding and reception down the road. We had a great day together and it made it even better to come home and find out NY followed in DC's footsteps... It's a big day for all of us, to have the option to Legally marry someone we love REGARDLESS of their gender, and a big FUCK YOU to those opposed!!!!!!!

It's official!

After 7+ years together, last night my boyfriend proposed and asked me to marry him. I gladly said yes. So we are now officially engaged and I couldn't be happier. Looking forward to what is to come!

Contest winning!

So my local amusement park, Six Flags America opened 4 new waterslides this past Saturday. They had a contest on facebook about a month ago to name the slides. The Attraction is called Zoomazon Falls and they wanted the names to be related to the Amazon. I was very excited when my name, Sloth Splashdown made it to the top 8 for a final vote. I was contacted last week and told that mine was one of the 4 top winners and was invited to bring a guest for the opening ceremony and be the first to go down the slide I named. It was a very cool experience. Not only because I had actually won, but because I finally brought my hubby to the park for his first time. It was a great day, we spent half of it in the waterpark and half of it on the coasters. I thought it was very cool that they not only let me be the first to slide down my slide, but my hubby got to go down right after me. It's very cool to know that my home park has something there that I named.

Gripe Session

Just something this weekend that really bothers me. There is a horror movie convention in town with a lot of the cast members from the Friday The 13th series... My favorite series in horror. I was really considering going until multiple friends of mine informed me that a lot of the actors charge for an autograph or a picture.. Anywhere from $5-$40.. I'm sorry, but that's total bullshit. First off, while us horror geeks know who they are, most people wouldn't, so they need to stop acting like they are Brad Pitt or something. 2nd, they need to appreciate their fans, not take advantage of them. I'm not a person who is very well off financially, and I don't wanna have to spend more money on top of the admission just to get to meet or get my picture with some of these people. I would like to think that if in some way I would ever become famous, I would appreciate my fans, and not expect them to pay me to get a picture or autograph. Who do they think they are? I just hate how everything anymore has to come with a price tag. We've bought your movies, even bought t-shirts or posters for them, but you are not God. Get off your high horse and just be thankful that people still appreciate you for the handful of movies you made 20 some years ago.

Six Flags Great Adventure

So Friday 5-20-11 I went to Great Adventure with my sister... It started out crappy, but ended up a great day. The first 90 mins it rained so hard that all the rides were closed. After that it rained on and off a little, but not enough to close the rides, even got a bit of sunshine from time to time. By the last 3 hours there were almost no lines, so we got some re-rides in.

El Toro- Rode this one 2 times. I sat in the back seat both times. This is an AMAZING coaster and by the 3rd airtime hill quickly took my #1 spot of all time! (Sorry I305). I absolutely loved this coaster.. I would have rode it more, but by the end of the day it was only running one train, so the line was a bit longer and I wanted to get some Re-rides in.

Kingda Ka- The tallest in the world, and 2nd fastest in the world. I had to experience this one. Being launched from 0-128mph in 3.5 seconds, the launch leads you up an element called a tophat... which happens to be 456 ft tall.
So I have 2 opinions of this coaster. I rode this 3 times. the first 2 times were in the first and second row. I loved it! I couldn't believe how intense this ride is. The wind, barely able to keep your eyes open, and the view as you first look down and begin to spiral back to the ground. I have never ridden a coaster where after it was over my heart was pounding and I had jelly legs. I think if this ride was more than 17 seconds it would be too much to take... Ok so the other opinion, the 3rd time I rode it I sat towards the back... totally different experience.. By the end of the launch the car was shaking so bad that my head was banging against the restraints uncontrollably. It was WAY too rough. I did not enjoy the ride in the back car. For the future I will only ride on the front or close to it.

Nitro - This was an amazing ride. My first B&M Hyper, and now I see what the hype is about. My ass spent more time off the seat than on. Intimidator 305 got bumped twice, because even though El Toro got my #1 coaster, Nitro has taken my #1 Steel coaster. I rode this one twice, also in the back row... If I had more time I would have done at least one more round.

Superman -Ultimate Flight- I cannot tell you how disappointed I was in this coaster. I only had ridden one flyer before. Vekoma's Batwing at SFA. I love Batwing, but I thought Superman was so boring. There are barely any exciting elements in this coaster, the g forces on the pretzel loop are very uncomfortable, and waiting at the brake run entering the station was uncomfortable just hanging there.. I was glad I didn't wait long for this one.

Green Lantern - This was only open for passholders which was good and bad. Bad because my sister couldn't get on, but good because there was NO line. My sister knew I wanted to ride it so she told me to go ahead.. and I did, twice. I never got to ride it as Chang, so it was a new coaster for me. I loved it. It was a great smooth ride. My only other stand up is Shock Wave, and Green Lantern beats the hell out of that one. Faster, Smoother, Better elements, and a much more comfortable restraint system. I'll add some pics here, but if you want to see more check them out on my FB page.

Batman - I like this coaster, but it's nothing special. I rode it once. I think this is the common opinion.

Bizarro - I rode this once before in 2000 when it was Medusa... I remember liking it then, but for some reason this time it seemed so much better. It keeps its speed well while traveling through many elements without being rough. The visual effects are awesome as well. I had to ride this one twice. I don't get the point of the speakers though... you can really only hear them on the lift hill and brake run.

There are other coasters at the park, but with the limited time we had... I wanted to re-ride the big boys.

So Far So Good....

I know it's been a while since my last post. Been kinda tiring with starting my new job. Training wasn't hard or anything, but since I started working again I've been sleeping a lot.. I guess I got a little out of shape while I was off lol. So far I like my new job, and starting in May I get a really good schedule. Sun-Wed, so my 3 days off will be in a row. I am also in an exceptionally good mood today because with the off season being over, I FINALLY got a coaster fix! After my plans to go to Six Flags America on opening day got shut out by rain, I ended up going yesterday by myself. I was having an ok time, then I ran into a couple enthusiasts, and after talking, it turns out they are friends with a lot of the coaster enthusiast friends I have made online. I ended up spending the rest of the day riding with them. Turned out to be a great day!

Good news... and giving up vices

So I got the job that I interviewed for and I start on monday. So that means relief for me and the hubby. Also, last week I started using blucigs, a brand of electronic cigarettes. I'm proud to say that I've only had 3 real cigs since I started. This is definitely an easier approach to quitting. I'm still getting nicotine, but without all the added poisons of real cigs. I'm hoping to be off nicotine all together by my birthday this summer. I shopped around for a while for the best e-cigs, reading reviews and all. The blu cigs got really good reviews, but I have to admit the blue tip is what sold me... damn attraction to pretty blue lights lol.
