Day One- Friday, July 9
Okay so Friday was the first day I went to stampede this year. And I was initially supposed to work, but a few strings were pulled and I got the day off. So, I already knew it was gonna be an awesome day. So my friends Ariel, Alexa, Tyler, Brenna and Devin and my brother and I rode rides for pretty much the whole day, then we feasted like moderate kings. And we walked around and took pictures. I got a picture with a poooooony!! A big giant horse like pony… it was actually a horse… but I’ll just call it my little pony :) Any who, Yea so we walked around the army set up and took pictures with guns, tried to look all bad ass and such. So we walked around to where there was a bomb set up thing, and we talked with the guys there and Devin got to try on the bomb suit and it was hilarious to watch especially when he made jokes about how he can get men down on their knees all the time… lol and towards the end… Apparently I “flirted” my way into having the hot army guy give me his beret… I would just call that being friendly and cute… But okay. Anyways, it smelled of great bravery, honour and the sweat of a hot army man. That’s pretty boss. Oh and Ariel and I attempted to go to the Theory Of A Deadman concert… didn’t last very long… Lots of young children.. Old scary rapist like men trying to mosh.. within like the first song.. Eh, not so cool… not enough adrenaline and honestly… They aren’t even really mosh worthy…
Day Two- Sunday, July 11
Well, This was a moderately eventful day… I got a Kyle’s place and it was all people from work pretty much. Kyle, Tiera, Chris and Megan [Kayla and Sean were the only sober ones]were pretty much already drunk, and so of course I didnt want to be the loser who is all responsible and sober right? So i pour myself a hefty amount of alcohol thinking that that was my limit for the night since i still had to drive, but then we played a game of Horserace.. I lost… I downed my drink, and became about as sober as an alcoholic… So yea I grabbed another drink and we all hung around and then we finally made our way over to Stampede which was like about a 4 minute walk. We get there and pretty much everyone is piss drunk and on the verge of vomiting. So basically Kayla, Sean, Chris and myself went off on our own and we did a few rides, then Chris and I paid 40 bucks to ride the Slingshot. And it was totally worth it. The scariest part was waiting in line, and it got less scary when we were actually inside the ball thing. But when I was shot up there I screamed like a pig about to be slaughtered haha. All i kept yelling was “OMFG were gonna die!! I’m gonna kill you Chris!!” and I finally chilled and started to enjoy the ride. Best feeling EVER. My insides felt like they were being ripped out it was AMAZING.
Day Three- Tuesday, July 14
Miserable MISERY. It rained all day, and I was pretty damn soaked. Thank god for Justin in providing me with his jacket. Yea so on the third day I went to Stampede with Brad and Justin from work, and it was a rainy shit fest. Very upsetting, I only went on like 3 rides… And I bought an ALL DAY PASS… God DAMN. So I really wanted a monkey in a banana and I could NEVER win the water gun game… It really upset me… The only time I won was when I DIDN’T want to win… haha the prize was some fugly ass big eyed creature. All in all… Waste of money… and I WANT MY MONKEY IN A BANANA…
Total amount of money spent: $375.. :’(
