the good, the bad and the ugly - tahoe

you can say those words concluded my weekend in tahoe. really good one day, really bad the other. i've been once again reminded that the world lives in a balance.

the good - the first day was so much fun. not only was it sunny out so we arrived to tahoe faster than expected... but all the toys i wanted, eric got for me :P we played tons of games and had tons of fun with everyone. we teased the workers there to help us out lol saw some guy playing air hockey by himself lol then came dinner and we went to one of the better steak house i've been to. and thanks to heather, i was able to finish my wine LOL

gambling was fun and funny. heather, eric and i all went to an empty table. the dealer asked for our ids. since i carry a copy of eric's id, i gave him eric's id first (since that one was the first one i saw first) and while i was looking for mine... the dealer already checked everyone's id. in a nutshell, i was able to pass off eric's id as for mine LOL the dealer only looked at the year, not the picture. that was funny. unless we look alike? hahahah! but anyway the dealer's scary tho. i got 19, he got 21. i got 20, he got 21. and they are small cards too! so we all left right after those two hands and moved over. at first i can say it kinda sucked and i lost what i started off with.

but i went ahead and moved to another table and started off with the same amount i lost in the previous table. i doubled that... won back my lost... and basically doubled both amounts :D so i was on a good roll. and i was good enough to stop myself and not play anymore. normally i would lose my winnings and even out. i ALWAYS do that. i'll double it and then lose my winnings and even out lol so i was being good! and thanks to eric for listening to me and not let me play anymore lol (it was a good idea for me to give all my money for my bf to hold LOL cant even gamble if i wanted to)

*****i really dunno which one is worse... so i'll let you decide which one is the bad and which one is the ugly lol

the bad and the ugly - the morning started off with breakfast buffet at circus circus. then realizing i've dropped my wallet... only to find it at the front desk, with no money. so all my winnings and more? gone. i'm not even gonna bother to mention how much i lost... i thought i lost [this much] but then after talking to eric and counting how much i really had... it was more. -____- they even took my folded hearts. >____< (goodbye 143) but all credit cards are still here and i've checked my statements online today, nothing so far but charges i've made after i've got my wallet back. but i'll call them later to confirm anyway.

then right after breakfast, we looked outside to see it snowing. shit. let's just say that:

1. chains are mandatory, we brought some but our chains broke while we drove. so we had to get another one.
2. it took us 6 hours to move 30 miles
3. around 30 ish miles, roads were closed off and we werent allowed back on the road.
4. it was snowing so much we were asked to drive single file (i have never experienced tahoe like this before, esp. in mid april!)

in the end, it took us 12 hours to get home from a normally 4 hours drive home from tahoe. ugggh.

my comments: are ppl crazy? what a part of "single file, no passing" do they NOT understand? there's obviously a reason to why they asked us to do so. yet we had at least 10 cars passed us only to get what?? 2 - 3 cars ahead of us? give me a break. let's see, risking your life (and others who are in your car) to save 5 mins of your life... vs... driving slow and safe but to get home a little later. hmmm which one is more important? i mean, did they NOT hear about all those spin outs that caused the goddamn traffic and highway close out? blah.

but yeah, it's ok. because:
1. everyone got home safe and sound.
2. everyone also get to go to work and school today instead of missing any as what we thought would happen, esp. how half of us had important things to do at work.
3. i still had one day that was really fun.
4. i kept thinking how the person who took my money will lose 3 times as much as what they took from me. so that makes me feel better lol (karma! dont mess with that :P altho it makes me wondered what i did to deserve losing my money :'( )
5. it's a good sunny day today.

and to end my list of good things that makes up for the bad/ugly things that happened: i am finally getting the phone i wanted!!!!! thanks, babe :D ♥

and thank you to nicky, robert and heather for being around to help us out :) (boy, robert is strong. "he's a machine"! :P)
and thank you eric for driving and for going up even tho i know he hates driving in the snow :)

yeah i know :( but i'm sure 99.9% of the ppl who were to pick up my wallet would take all the money... it's kinda lot to pass.

and for the ones who are passing us by in the snow... uh yeah, i kept saying "are they rushing to get killed?" i'm just scared they lose control and hit someone! and to top it off, it will slow EVERYONE down even more!

(i wasnt sure which ones you are calling assholes so i complained about them all lol)

What truly matters is the Care Bears came back safely. No really, glad you all made it back safely. I think the longest it took for me to get back from Tahoe once was over 9 hours.

There's a lot of traffic during the holiday season too. When I was stuck in traffic, there wasn't a snow storm, just tons and tons of cars!

Oh yeah.. let's meet up. I haven't seen you since January, I think!

So Kobe is into basketball AND Care Bears...... :)
