Hershey

Probably not the only person blogging about this today, but whatever. First...

Daily Irony- Jimmy was on the bus but Ms. B didn't know he was there. He ran off to tell someone he was on the bus. Then we lost him. So in an attempt to be found, he got lost.

Okay... Here is a timeline without actual times. Approximations of time on occasion. This is like twenty-four hours. Starting last night at...

9:30- I begin getting ready for my trip. I fill my bag with a change of clothes, find my blue tie, etc.

10:15- I get in bed. I don't get to sleep until 10:45 or later.

5:00 AM- I wake up. I try to go back to sleep but I can't. Too excited.

5:43 AM- I get up. I get ready to go, and I'm ready by 6. I play videogames for about 15 minutes. We're ready to go then.

6:30ish- I get to school. I hang out with my friends, throwing sticks at wasps' nests, until we're ready to go.

6:45?- We leave. The bus ride is great: Mafia, movie and all. Fun fun.

IDK- We get to the choral adjudication thing. We sing our songs, and leave. We hang out while the girls change, then we change (apparently dana was in the bathroom) and head off to the park.

10:30ish?- We get to the park. We go right to Great Bear. That's fun (just so that you can make fun of me: i sat with emilyn on all the rides. that was nice). Then we go to Comet.

Comet was COMPLETELY INSANE. First you have to know the restraints: an airplane type seatbelt that you pull up to release, and a bar that sits about 3 inches above my thigh and I could easily slip out of. Okay, so we're going up this steep slope and emilyn tells me i have my glasses on. I fold them up and put them in my velcro pocket, and as I pull my hands back up to the bar they brush against my seat buckle and unbuckle it! I say to emilyn (more out of shock than anything), "I unbuckled my seatbelt". She says "What?!?". And I begin to realize what's happening and I say, "I'm not buckled in". So now I'm freaking out because I can't buckle myself in without letting go of the bar which will most likely result in my untimely death, so I'm clutching it with all my strength and Emilyn's grabbing me and we're both totally flipping out. But long-story short I make it. And that was very traumatic.

We do some more coasters and get lunch (mine is gross so i end up eating other people's) and yeah...

Let's see...

Important Stuff after that...

Some people budge in front of us on line. This leads to an all-out war, though my friends are not wanting to be involved.

Our group (Me, Emilyn, Jeff, Jeff, Tim, Katie, Frances, Emily, and Dana. Crap. Am I forgetting someone? Was Kelly there? Whatever) split up for a while when Maddie, Tim, and Katie left. We saw them in line for Comet so we got on line and Emilyn ran up to talk to them and tried to take me and I thought she was trying to get in line with them which I am very opposed to. So I didn't go with her. And the girl in front of us said "Go with her! Why aren't you following her? I think she likes you". And then there was a little silence and then I said, "She's my girlfriend". That was funny. Her name was Claudia and she was from Langston Hughes Middle School outside of D.C.

Okay... more stuff happened but I don't talk about my personal life too much and I've already done it alot so...

THE END

Carssa said...

I feel left out. everyone had sooo much fun at hershey. supposedly. while i was stuck in school. *sigh*

Jen said...

Don't worry, Carissa. I wasn't there either.

...and you don't have to do make up work. ^^

Speaking of which, if you need to know the homework or what we did in class, don't call me on Sunday; I will be at my dad's house, and I can't answer my house phone from there. But you can e-mail me. I can still check that there.

Angie said...

you are such a baby sam! I like don't even use the lap resraint thing on comet! what's the point? you have a handlebar and the freakin ride dosen't go upside down! you yellow-bellied baby!

Jeff said...

Angie, remember: Sam is small (no offesnse). Comet goes fast. Small people + Comet + no seatbelt = Fly out of Comet and onto the track. Anyyaw, yesterday was fun.

hong said...

WE SAW YOU ON GREAT BEAR! susie, katie and I were going to get on when you guys got off. We waved (you ignored us/didn't see us) and we were pondering how you got on the ride before us.

Angie said...

still, the seatbealt does nothing on rides with no loops. as long as you have the thing to hold on to that comes down, youre absalutley safe.

Anonymous said...

I agree with angie. I think it was just an excuse to hold on to Emilyn.

Angie said...

whoa, I like support, but not from evil anonymous people. That's scary. Who are you?

Ali said...

omg sam and everyoody!!!
I HAVE A BLOG!!!
*CHEERS LOUDLY!!!*

Sam said...

Angie: I actually felt myself begin to slip out of the seat. It's not a wimpy thing.

plus why must you point out this? I was very scared.

glass said...

are your glasses loose? glasses only fall off on upside down rides

melissa said...

Sounds like fun.

This one time I was on a ride with my cousin, and a really, really LARGE man had just gotten out of her seat so she tring to fasten the seatbelt as fast as she could, which wasn't fast enough. So we started freaking out when it moved, but she's not dead so its okay.

Abby said...

I hate rollercosters. call me any name you want, but the idea of feeling like I'm about to die doesn't appeal to me, as weird as that is.

Anonymous said...

Jen said...

Abby said...

Leah said...

I'll join your club, Abby. I'm scared to death of rollercoasters. Anyway, Music people are still so lucky to go to an amusement park.
