And I find it kinda funny

I find it kinda sad

The dreams in which I'm dying

Are the best I've ever had

More updates.

Now, with pictures!

So. Being Singaporean and never having been to cold climates, I have never seen snow before, and told the Kathmanns as much. Both Katie and John exclaimed that Karl HAD to take me up to the mountains to just be in close proximity of (and touch) fat least a bit of snow. Now, I didn't know that the drive was going to be that long, so I got trigger happy with my camera. Sorta. Most of the pictures didn't turn out.

For the first time in my life, I saw snow.

... It was cold and crunchy, but the sun was shining so bright, it didn't really feel all that cold after all. I wrote it off as the fact that it was dry so the snow would melt slower. Played in it for a little bit and nearly threw a snowball at Karl. But if there's anything I learned about being a passenger, it is NOT to annoy the driver, so I threw it at a tree instead.

The top of Bogus Basin is actually a ski resort of sorts, and I snapped a picture of the ski-lifts. Like I said, trigger happy. It's pretty up there, though. It's just begun to melt, so you see patches of brown dirt here and there, and the trees poking out from the white.

Isn't it pretty? Kinda dirty.. But still SNOW! We even took a picture in it!

... Sorta. Listen, I'm short, and he's a full foot taller than I am, alright? Cut me some fucking slack dammit :P

It was a pretty long drive...

...so I got kinda crazy in the car.

Actually, one of the reasons for my craziness was because...

... Karl was singing along to Daft Punk to the CD player that skips every time he does a left turn, be it gentle or fast.

Remember how I said that Karl lives right next to a lake? Other than a flight of stairs in the way, this is what the lake looks like from his apartment door.

Isn't it pretty? A gaggle of geese live there too. Noisy fuckers.

On Thursday, my last night in Boise, I decided to hang out at Karl's workplace. And when I say hang out, it meant that I was there from 10am when he started his shift to 6pm when he knocked off. He was supposed to leave at 8, but I got lucky. His colleagues are pretty cool, great fun to talk to and mess around with (regarding my ethnicity, hahaha). Katie and John even dropped by for a late lunch. Had fun talking to them too, told me about Karl when he was a kid and when they were in West Virginia, New Mexico etc. Funny stories!

After his shift, we hung out a little bit before heading down to a bar in downtown Boise (also known as BoDo.. lol.. bodoh sekali sial!) called The Bouquet. Wasn't too bad. They serve their drinks with al-- No. They serve their alcohol with just a hint of whatever drink you wanted with it. It's great! A colleague of Karl's was performing there as the headliner (La Fleur) that night, so needless to say we all got pretty drunk.

Taylor kept asking if I wanted to smoke weed.
But I am a good girl, so I didn't.
I stuck to my cloves.

La Fleur in action, and Taylor in the red t-shirt on the dance floor. :P

So, like I said... it was my last night in Boise, Idaho. But definitely not my last night in the United States just yet. I packed up all my stuff and Karl hauled some stuff into a duffel bag for the weekend, climbed into the car and drove a whole seven hours to Vancouver, Washington where...

...I snuck up behind Aaron (Kori/Vincent) and snapped a pic!

It was an interesting weekend in Vancouver. Much beer was had and much Guitar Hero played by the three of us. The song "I Love Rock and Roll" is stuck in my head now, burned into my memory. Oh, and trust me when I say that Karl is hilarious because/when he's drunk.

Did I mention we had beer?

I love his shirt. :D

A beer (or five) also makes you do funny things. (his t-shirt is cool, too!)

... Like biting the head off someone.

... Or making funny faces.

But Aaron was sad, as he was the designated driver, and only had two beers.

... which of course he blamed me for.

So I decided to watch Karl play some Metroid Prime: Hunters on his DS.

I got wtfpwned by him though. *sad face*

... so I decided to see what it's like to be a DS.

Like I said, much drunkedness was abound.

Monday came, and I had to leave. We said our tearful goodbyes, exchanged hugs and I went through the security checkpoint in Portland. It had been a pretty good vacation, and now I'm sitting back here in Tucson. Don't get me wrong, I like it here too. I'm back to my gaming self.

To whoever you are, wherever you are, I love you. I probably don't know you yet, but when I do, I'll know, and so will you. And you'll love me for who I am, as will I.

You might be living in my neighbourhood, or some other town or country far away. I don't know. And neither do you, at this point.

Wherever you are, I know I'll find you... if you don't find me first.

It's just a matter of time.
