Went to Six Flags this past weekend with insidious
using the pass my grandparents gave me for Christmas. :) It was lots of fun. We were off to a very late start thanks to going to get makeup for my Bookman costume, but the stop was well worth it. I got a ton of high quality Kryolan makeup and a few bald caps, plus some brushes and sponges to apply it all with. And the guy at the shop gave me a lot of good advice.
After that, we headed toward Arlington, but stopped for lunch first at Panda Express. Did not realize the irony of eating there after planning a Bookman cosplay until later in the day when insidious
pointed it out. XD We got to Six Flags by a little bit after noon, and it was crowded
. We should have gotten there sooner but the costume shop wasn't open until 10, and there wasn't much we could do but go later if I wanted to get both done in the same day. I would have done the shopping Sunday, but they were closed.
Inside the park, it was line after line, because first I had to get my season pass (and realized later I could have done it after, but alas), and then we stood in line for forever to ride Runaway Mountain. We had tried the line for the Titan, but it was huge. It was looking pretty bad for getting anything done even though we had fun on that ride, and we got hung up waiting for the train to take us around the park. That was my idea, because I wanted to save us a walk and have some fun at the same time, but I ended up just making insidious
sit in the heat instead while they ended up having to refuel the train. -_- In the end though, after THAT, things got better.
We had some awesome cheese fries and got one of those collector cups with the free refills all day, just ended up sharing it because why pay $14 for just one person? Pft. Then we waited for forever to ride the Titan, yeah, but it was worth it. We figured at that point that since we had waited so long we could at least wait to be first on the cart, and so we stood in line next to an obnoxious couple who stayed liplocked for at least 30 minutes. I joke, but they really were attached at the hip.
After that we played some games, and I won a Toad plushie from Mario in the arcade. We looked at the line for Batman but it was long, so we gave up and played the water gun racing game, until insidious
finally won a Slimer plush from Ghostbusters. Then I went and played the game where they guess your age, because it's not a trip to Six Flags for me until I do. Last year I believe they guessed something like 25? It was young for me, but not even close. This year though... I don't know how or why, but I was getting 16-17 guesses from everyone. It was so hard not to laugh. I'm 30. Maybe it was the Sailor Moon shirt or maybe it was because I had a plushie, but Julie already calls me Benjamin Button for a reason I guess. In the end, it was so worth it to see the look on this teenage girl's face because she was one of the ones convinced I was that young.
I don't see it, but whatever. XD It made my day.
Then we went and stood in line for the Flashback, and some kids kept standing on the rails of the line and nearly fell on me. They held up the line EVERY row, and got yelled at by the staff. I was surprised they weren't thrown out, but eventually we got to ride, and by that point we were exhausted. It was 8:30, so we decided to head home. We got some Chick Fil-A, and I bought an extra sandwich to have for Sunday because without fail, I end up craving it the day after.
And then I spent all day today either sleeping, RPing, or working on graphic design work that I put off all weekend. I still have about an hour of that to get done before I can sleep. I'm a bit thrown off though because of that nap. T_T
also had a terrible allergic reaction on and off over the weekend, so I hope she'll be okay. We think it must have been food that had penicillin on it somehow. :( At least she's feeling better now.
