The call of the koala

So I got to meet Lyssiana/Tat(t)ia/Koala Bear (whom I will now–in the interest of laziness–refer to as KB) and Tel for the first time this weekend. There were other SR members who put in an appearance but those were the 2 I had not yet met in person.

Sunday morning my adventure starts with me driving into Sacramento. I am not one of those people who enjoys driving. Obviously I tolerate it because it gets me places I need to go. But when I am driving long distances to places I don’t know very well I hate it. I am always afraid I am going to get lost and somehow end up in Cracktown USA where my ratty Dodge Neon will look like something worth stealing and I will end up dead and my body thrown into the dumpster behind the Del Taco.

The sad thing is the driving instructions aren’t terribly complicated. I just get myself so worked up about getting lost that it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. It’s a sad feeling to be getting onto an exit and realize that it’s the wrong one. I ended up downtown, where we would be heading later, but I was able to get back onto the freeway and eventually to Arioch/Zam’s house.

I have to add here that Casa de AriZam is amusing in how it appears to discourage any kind of long-term visitors. There is a room for Arioch and a room for Zambra and if you are not either of them then GTFO. The lack of living room seating gives off a “don’t bother getting comfortable” vibe that is refreshing in its honesty.

Then KB burst in and proceeded to hug then punch me. Huzzah! In RL she is just how she is in game. Full of energy and fun and with the fantastic mouth of a sailor. I feel bad for the candy store employee in Old Sac who was trying to give out coupons:

KB: What’s this?

Candy store employee: Come in and try some candy.

KB: I can’t eat candy.

CSE: We have sugar-free–

KB: (cutting him off) No, thank you, that stuff tastes like shit.

But she says it with a smile on her face, so it doesn’t come off as excessively Tourrettes-y.

It was a nice day, good to see people I hadn’t seen in a while and nice to meet new people. I’m sure one of the other blogs will be chock full of fun and details, so I’ll leave them to it.

Sadly, I did manage to even screw up going home. Thankfully I was able to turn myself around before I headed all the way out to El Dorado Hills >.< (Tel, you are lucky I didn’t offer to drive you home because who knows where the hell we would have ended up.)

Tomorrow we will resume WoW-related posts. Just wanted to thank everyone for a fun day.

    Casa de AriZam – sounds like a prison. 😛

  2. Well the fucker wouldn’t take no for an answer!

    You should have seen the bitch in the mall who tried to sell me her hair styling products each time we walked by her.

    I wasn’t nice to her period.

    It was sooooo good to see you! I am so happy you made it out to hang with us! 😀

  3. […] me up and brought me back to the house.  Zari and Soth were both there already.  As Zari already mentioned I popped in, hugged everyone then punched them.  I didn’t punch Soth on Saturday because […]
