I'm not quite sure if that title has anything to do with anything but oh well.
Time for, 'Vegerot's Journaly Rant on the Weather'!
Okay, so this edition will be a little different because I won't be reporting about my usual boring weather at home as I was... well, not at home. I was in sunny California! B)
And what better things to do than spend time at Disneyland and Universal Studios, eh? To me, nothing because I've never spent any extensive time in Cali save for this one week. The weather there goes from humid, almost to the point where I felt like I was drowning to nice and cool. Certainly different than the normal dry air and freezing cold I'm used to but nice.
There was apparently some earthquake activity too but I didn't feel any of that at all.
Not much to report, just happy to have something more to say than how boring the weather is. xD So ends this, 'Vegerot's Journaly Rant on the Weather'!
Now, I suppose those of you who actually read my journals would like to hear a little about my time in Cali, huh? Well, Imma get to that here in a sec... *ahem* IT. WAS. AWESOME! I have NEVER EVER been to a Disney park before so naturally I was excited. Our first stop was Disney's California Adventure and just walking down Buena Vista street, I felt like a kid. xD The architecture is brilliant, the shops are fantastic and interesting and everyone is so friendly, I loved it!
I didn't see many toons walking about but the ones I did see were always in character and always friendly. I absolutely love how each section of the Cali Adventure park was tailored to the movie they were centered around. Of the rides we got to try, we got on the ferris wheel in Paradise Pier and the Toy Story shooting gallery. Damn was that fun. I'm not a very accurate shooter but I racked up points like nobody's business.
Also rode the carousel which goes to show how much of a kid I really am and Goofy's Sky School coaster. Holy shit, that thing moves fast. o.o I'm prone to motion sickness tho so that was as daring a coaster as I was willing to go. >.> Would have loved to try the Cars Racers in Radiator Springs but the line was way too long... :'C
Most of the rides in Disneyland shut down so we only got to ride the Matterhorn, Splash Mountain and the carousel which kinda bummed me out but we tried to make the best of it given all there was to look at still. Even got pictures with Captain America. ;D Disneyland is a fun place but Anaheim is far too humid for my taste.
All that changed when we went to Universal Studios Hollywood! *u* On the original itinerary for Burbank, I had hoped my friend and I could catch a taping of Craig Ferguson but alas, his show was cancelled. D: However, thanks to a tip from a friend, I got us into see a show for none other than ROB PAULSEN
! If you don't know who that is, look him up because there is NO WAY you aren't familiar with his work. Check him out on his Talkin' Toons
app for podcasts of his shows past and present and to learn more about his work as a voice actor. :3 I was exceedingly excited about this particular show because his special guest was the legendary MARK HAMILL
That's right, the Joker himself! I damn near bounced off the walls with excitement when my friend informed me of such. XD
Knowing I would be seeing these two legends just talking about their experiences in the voice acting field was exciting enough but while in the dining room waiting for the show to start, I took notice of people gathering around a support beam behind me. They appeared to be talking to someone who was obviously quite well-known and I just couldn't figure out who it was... Finally, my friend got me to work up the courage to talk to this mystery man. Turns out, it was KYLE HEBERT
Never in my life would I have ever imagined accidentally bumping into someone who had a hand in the show that has made such a large impact on my life.
It was such an amazing show and I got autographs from both Rob and Kyle.
Sadly, Mark wasn't doing photos or signings but just being in the same room with the man was enough to make my fucking year.
The remainder of our time in Cali was spent in Universal Studios and riding the 3D Transformers ride and the Jurassic Park ride till we were sick of them. XD It was a fucking blast and I'm sad that it had to come to an end but I honestly don't think I could have afforded to stay longer.
I'm still getting used to being home again but that'll happen eventually. Here's hoping I get to go back again someday, this time with my family or maybe even a few close friends.
That's really all that has happened to me lately as it's only been a few days since I got back from my trip. Just wanted a place to properly go over what I did while I was away.
Don't expect any art anytime soon tho I do still have ideas. Might post more fics in the meantime, haven't decided. I'm out!Vegerot
