Vacation This Week

maverick

This week I am on vacation from my “9 to 5″ as a property manager, so I am taking a little bit of time to relax.  Last weekend my friends and I took our second trip of the season to Cedar Point in Sandusky, OH.

We took our first trip back in May, and this is when I learned to face my fears regarding roller coasters.  The trip went exceptionally well.  I’m proud to say that I rode every single coaster in the park, some of them twice!  My favorites are the Maverick, pictured left, as well as the Millenium Force and the Top Thrill Dragster.  Top Thrill is still the most challenging to me, because there is a certain level of psychological torture that they put you through at the beginning of the ride.  Basically, you “stage”, just like you would in a dragster, then its 17 seconds from beginning to end of ride.  I can’t do it justice trying to explain it, so have a look at this YouTube video (not shot by me).  Note the light sequence like you would see at a drag race.

My plans for this week include finishing up some reading, both fiction and function.  In the fuction section, I have Snow Crash.  I have started reading this book 5 times now, and end up setting it down and forgetting about it.  All of my room mates have read it, so they are now harassing me to finish it.  In the function section, I have some marketing materials that I want to finish going over for the real estate side of my life.

I finally got a new laptop and sold my Vaio!  Matt had just upgraded so he was looking to offload his HP, which I gladly purchased from him.  He treats his computers better than most parents treat their children, so I know I’m getting a quality machine for a reasonable price.  Best of all, I won’t have to listen to the fans on this one like I did the old one.

I’m going to try to get some actual worthwhile blog entries up here this week, so stay tuned.
