In 2005, I went to one of the biggest Super Smash Bros Melee
tournaments in the world (MELEEFC). It was held in Indiana and
probably over 200 to 300 people attended (from all over the world.). I
think it was 70 dollars for the whole weekend, including food and all
entry fees. I drove with Mikey and the craziest thing happened to him
that day of the tournament (hisDad died that day). He chose to still
go to the tournament to try to get his mind off of it. The drive there
wasnt too bad, but once we got near the backroads that led to the
Church at which it was held rain just started pouring so hard that
there was nearly zero visibility. Eventually we got there but that had
to have been the craziest rain I have ever been in.


I was so excited when we got there, the room had like 50 or more TVs.
This was my last official tournament before I retired from playing
smash. I think I have been playing it for like 5 years or more. It is
the most addicting and fun game ever.

One time for some reason I took a personal day because I had something going on. I cant even remember why, but even though at the time I was driving every day about 120 miles from Flint to Detroit, I wanted to take newsie682 out to go ice skating at Campus Martius park right in front of Compuware. It was my first time ice skating and I picked it up like a charm. I was doing 360's and skating backwards and doing tricks in no time. It was really nice goofing off with her and it was super cheap to go ice skating. I remember also goofing off with a little kid too.



That day we had planned on going to the DIA, but it was either closed or under renovation, so we went to the Science Museum anyways. There were a few really interesting exhibits but a lot of them were for kids. newsie682 liked them because most of them I would act like I normally do (immaturely) and I would mess around and play with all of them.



The coolest thing about this was that the museum has an IMAX . . . Read More..

In 2006 newsie682 and my friend Kelly had a nice Christmas dinner with Luke and Kate , and Jillian and Allen and Susan and I over. I mostly wanted to upload the photos cause most of the night we just opened presents, chit chatted and relaxed at her house.

The one interesting thing I remember was the appletini's that someone made. I was drinking one of these as all the girls were opening presents and it totally went down the wrong tube. Because of all the sugar content in those things, I coughed horrendously for at least 10 or 15 minutes. I am glad I didnt die right there in the christmas presents.

During spring break in '05, I took Emily down to Arizona to stay with my great uncle. While down there, we did the usual tourist stops of crossing the Mexican border, visiting Sedona, AZ, going to the Grand Canyon, crossing the Hoover Dam, and finishing the stops in Las Vegas. Our plan was to head up there and stay at my uncle's daughter Julie's place in Vegas and then do some sight seeing the next day and head back to Arizona. Well, we got to Vegas, did some sight seeing (tons and tons of walking), and then stayed the night at Julie's place. The next morning we planned on doing a little more sight seeing and head back. Well, we walked down the strip some more and soon realized that we weren't even going to see half of the main drag. So we just decided we would go find some cheap motel and end up staying 1 more night. We went to some of the lower scale hotels on the main strip, but those places were still way to expensive for a last minute . . . Read More..

"Look at all those people," I say as we pull into our hotel and the bus
just about runs over a bystander. After 20 hours of flying and
traveling we have arrived in our hotel. The travel time was not that
bad actually; I made nice acquaintence with a 16 year old
Chinese-American dude from Texas. His name is Josh. We
talked a bunch and he even let me watch a cheesy Chinese kung-fu movie
with him. Moderately sleeping in a cramped area helped make the trip go
faster. Josh and I played a bit of video games which was fun as well.


Most of my thinking when I got into Japan was "I cant believe I am in
Japan." As we walked through Narita, I just had a huge smile on my face
the whole time. I eagerly walked up to a woman in a booth and asked,
"Can I have one of these?" pointing like a kid at halloween to a
bookmark that had Japaneese characters all over them. She allowed and I
observed the interesting separation of garbage as I threw out my gum.
