We went to Wingham today. Woo :x The trip there was awesome. I got up at 8, and we left at 9, and promptly went to McDonalds for breakfast :p 'Bout 9:30, we headed back to the house 'cause Adam forgot his flashlight. As whenever we have to go back to the house for something before actually leaving, everyone started going "Well, that was a fun time". "It was good seeing Uncle Brent, huh?". I'm in the back seat simply thinking "STFU". Eventually we were on our way, and things were relatively quiet until we reached the service center. I didn't feel like anything big, so I just got an extra-large cafe mocha from Tim Hortons, and everyone else got what they wanted. There was some "Stacker" game in there, in which you had to stack up blocks that were moving back and forth, and for the two major prizes, there were a GBA SP and an iPod Shuffle :o I would've tried it just to see what it was like, but the sign on it said "OUT OF ORDER" :(
Anyways, my purchase only ran me $2.50. I still have $127.00 hidden up in my room. Now you can see why I'm pissed that Dad wouldn't stop on the way back. After we got home, he came up to me and said something about "wouldn't going to a convenience store here have been alright?". I said no. It's just not the same. It's a rarity for us to take trips that involve going on the 401, so it's a nice treat to be able to buy stuff from the service centers along the way.
Hell though. It was worse being a kid, when you didn't have money of your own to spend :p You wanted to buy EVERYTHING, but you had no money to, and if your parents are like mine, they wouldn't make an exception and buy you a special treat.
We ended up going on a hike around 2:30 in the afternoon, mainly to find puffball mushrooms and salamanders :x It was fun though. Uncle Brent would point out where a couple were, and everyone would run to grab them. For a day that was supposed to be rainy though, it was rather warm. I brought along my yellow jacket because I thought I might need it, but it turned out that I didn't. We found several of the mushrooms, a few of which were thrown at someone else, and the rest of which we brought back to show everyone else. We found a couple salamanders as well, although we dropped those a couple minutes after we picked them up, because they got dry awfully fast.
The trip back was pretty uneventful though. I was in the back seat by myself, so I unbuckled, laid down across the seat, and worked on the fourth case of Phoenix Wright. I stayed that way pretty much until we turned off Commissioners Road, because we were driving back into Chatham, and I didn't want to risk anyone seeing my seatbelt unbuckled.
Feh. I should be in bed, but I'm not tired. More just drained physically. Here's what working closes at Taco Bell does to you ;| I've got tomorrow off (thank God). I know I have to work from 8 to 3 on Monday (close), and aside from that, I know that the last three days on this week's schedule I have off :D It's been FOREVER since I had three days in a row off. Literally, the last time this happened was back in the end of spring.
As for trips, the next one we're having is in May, and we're going to Burlington. Woo. Going there's much better than going to Wingham, because it's more... how to say this delicately... civilized. Where we went in Wingham was out in the middle of nowhere. Our Burlington destination has all the stores and such you could need within easy walking distance.
Anyways, I'm off to look for some more PSP ISOs. I recently bought a 2GB memory stick, so now I've got my 1GB one for pure ISOs. Beautiful.
