New Thing #178: I went to California Adventure for the first time. For Jesse's birthday. The Tower of Terror should be illegal. If the ride had gone on for even one more second longer, I think it might have literally driven me crazy. Because I don't think that crazy and me are that far from each other, and that ride was scary. Then we went to Disneyland and stupidly went on Splash Mountain at 9pm in the evening and by the time the ride was over I was literally drenched. And when I say "drenched" I don't use the word hyperbolically even one iota. I was literally you-can-wring-me-out soaked from freaking head to toe. And it was late and cold and I had to go home early because I was too wet to walk around the park. Sorry I had to leave early, Jesse.
New Thing #179: I was awake for 24 hours straight. I'm going to go ahead and say that's a New Thing because I honestly don't think I've ever been awake for 24 hours straight before. I woke up on Friday morning at 6am and didn't go to bed again until Saturday at 6am. On the button. There were meetings and there was hours spent in traffic and there was getting lost for hours with a dog and there were birthday parties and there was drinking and there was lots of eating and then there was more driving and it was just a really long busy (very fun) day. But by hour 23, my brain was like "what on earth are you still awake for?" And I went to sleep and sleep seriously never felt so good.
