Fun Weekend

25 Jul

Saturday I spent – well – working. It’s not unusual, I’ve been doing it a lot lately. Sunday, however, I decided that enough was enough and even though I had a few articles to get out of the way first, I decided that we’d head to the large city near us to party.

The large city is actually 1 1/2 hours away, and by party I mean “go to Wal-Mart and hit up an arcade place”, but the kids were stoked.

Wal-Mart was, well, Wal-Mart, and the only thing we purchased that would look strange was a new booster seat. Our neighbor has some Japanese friends coming to visit in a few days and they needed a seat for the youngest of the family.

What was really fun, though, was the arcade place. This arcade place has indoor mini golf, laser tag, and tons of games where you can win tickets to purchase prizes. You know how it goes: spent $20 to get a $2 prize. But the kids love it and they’ve been great about me working so much lately. And I found a “buy one, get one free” admission thing for mini-golf, so yay :).

What we didn’t expect was to have the change machine spitting out at us. The arcade has moved onto plastic cards, so instead of putting quarters into the machine, you swipe your card. Then if you want tokens (because some game machines still use them) you have to swipe the card to get tokens. Scott had been getting tokens for this weird game where you put the coin into the slot and it goes onto a rotating, colorful record disc. A stable plastic piece makes the token move to the end of the record and then it passes under a scanner so it can tell how many tokens you’ve earned. You have to get the coin EXACTLY on the thing to win, especially if you’re talking about the jackpot. Scott and Babygirl both won the jackpot once, the stinkers.

Then we walked past one of the token machines, one that gives you 20 tokens, and suddenly 20 tokens popped out! Wow! Never one to look a gift horse in the mouth, we snagged them up and headed back to the machine, but before we could get two steps away, 20 more tokens popped out! Holy Moly! We entrusted most of our coins to Scott and Babygirl because, obviously, they have way more luck than Toad and I do. And sure enough they won a few more times, so the kids were totally able to raid the prize section.

Babygirl picked a cute lock-up diary, slinky, and a bracelet-pen.

Toad picked some candy, a slap bracelet, and some handcuffs.

The selection of handcuffs show that he is turning out to be exactly like his father!!

Today Toad’s headed to his first day of Tech Camp – he gets to go for three hours and to play with computers, his dream. One of his friends from school will be there and when you add that to tech-fun? You get NERDGASM. He’s stoked 🙂

    Sounds like the kids really had fun at the arcade palace this weekend.

    I used to be fascinated with the idea of handcuffs until my bf at the time, a LT. let me put his on while he was taking me on a ride-along one night. My wrists were tiny so they were ratched all the way down – They were heavy and after about 5 minutes they hurt and that pretty much ended thinking they were toys. Yuck – For the badguys only!

    Toad should have a fabulous day today at Tech Camp – I’m jealous!

    Your job as a future mother is to learn the god’s ways and to help your child understand despite the negative reinforcement and conditioning of today’s society. Without consciousous parents the child will have no hope, and may even exaserbate their disfavor by becoming corrupted in today’s environment.
    Your ultimate goal is to fix your relationship wiith the gods and move on. You don’t want to be comfortable here, and the changes in Western society in the last 100 years has achieved just that.
    1000 years with Jesus is the consolation prize. Don’t be deceived into thinking that is the goal.

    Much like the other prophets Mohhamed (polygamy/superiority over women/misogyny) and Jesus (forgiveness/savior), the gods use me for temptation as well. In today’s modern society they feel people are most weak for popular culture/sensationalism, and the clues date back to WorldWarII and Unit731:TSUSHOGO, the Chinese Holocaust. They used this Situation to bury Japanese atrocities.
    It has been discussed that, similar to the Matrix concept, the gods will offer a REAL “Second Coming of Christ”, while the “fake” Second Coming will come at the end and follow New Testiment scripture and their xtian positioning. I may be that real Second Coming.
    What I teach is the god’s true way. It is what is expected of people, and only those who follow this truth will be eligible to ascend into heaven as children in a future life. They offered this event because the masses have just enough time to work on and fix their relationship with the gods and ascend, to move and grow past Planet Earth, before the obligatory xtian “consolation prize” of “1000 years with Jesus on Earth” begins.

    The Prince of Darkness, battling the gods over the souls of the Damned.
    It is the gods who have created this environment and led people into Damnation with temptation. The god’s positioning proves they work to prevent people’s understanding.
    How often is xtian dogma wrong? Expect it is about the Lucifer issue as well.
    The fallen god, fighting for justice for the disfavored, banished to Earth as the fallen angel?
    I believe much as the Noah’s Flood event, the end of the world will be initiated by revelry among the people. It will be positioned to be sanctioned by the gods and led for “1000 years with Jesus on Earth”.
    In light of modern developments this can entail many pleasures:::Medicine “cures” aging, the “manufacture” of incredible beauty via cloning as sex slaves, free (synthetic) cocaine, etc.
    Somewhere during the 1000 years the party will start to “die off”, literally. Only those who maintain chaste, pure lifestyles, resisting these temptations, will survive the 1000 years. Condemned to experience another epoch of planet’s history for their ignorant pursuit of xtianity, they will be the candidates used to (re)colonize (the next) Planet Earth, condemned to relive the misery experienced by the peasantry during history due to their failure to ascend into heaven before the Apocalypse.
    Never forget:::It is not a house of Jesus.
    If this concept of Lucifer is true another role of this individual may be to initiate disfavor and temptation among this new poulation, the proverbial “apple” of this Garden of Eden. A crucial figure in the history of any planet, he begins the process of deterioration and decay that leads civilizations to where Planet Earth remains today.
    Which one is it?:
    One transitions into the other, allowing the gods to wash their hands of obligation to their Chosen One. My personal “consolation prize”.
    And since the gods never committed despite tens of billions in mass media, product development and natural disasters/tragedy they will employ the freedom they positioned into the Situation and CHEAT me out of everything.
    For those who would listen I was used to assist people to rapidly increase their understanding of this system. Unfortunate for me, the gods can claim they never intended this, despite being control freaks who guide everything specifically and have the power to force it with AI, and now they are free to fuck my brains out subsequently. Lucky me.

    Consistant with “reverse positioning” understand the REAL Second Coming would equate with The Matrix’s Anti-Christ, the fake battle of good and evil which will come at the end.
    I have spoken on this issue in years past. Understanding how they use the political encviornment to redefine people’s value system, realize anyone who speaks of the old world and its ways will envoke hatred. So when/if the Anti-Christ comes along speaking of reverting back to what liberalism would consider repressed and immoral it may be the only hope to salvage the god’s favor and keep moving forward rather than begin the 1000 year clock. The fake Second Coming will feed into this political environment.

    The gods pimp you all. You think “going along” is going to help you but it only makes your life here on Earth more comfortable, so that is where you will stay:::Prepare for the 1000 year clock.
