So that was Valentine's Day

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 20, 2011, 8:58 PM

I can honestly say that I had an enjoyable Valentine's Day! :woohoo: I have been with KenCumpian for nearly 10 years but we are both not really into V-Day and we just figured it would be a good excuse to see each other.

Went to Johnny Rockets for lunch. It's one of my favourite restaurants because it's a "50s Diner'. Look, atmosphere, and MUSIC!! If you know me even a bit you know I LOVE 50s music =D Tried their new BBQ Bacon Chicken Melt. Mmmmmm~ I ALWAYS get the single Smoke House Burger (bacon, cheeseburger with smoke house sauce) but this chicken just sounded too good and it was! (AMAZING!) Still piping hot when it came~

Back to Ken's we played Mario Kart Wii. Mario Kart is near and dear to our hearts. The first time we played on my Super Nintendo I kicked his butt in Battle Mode~ He returned in kicking mine in Races.

If you have access to a Wii, play Mario Kart! The carts and bikes are hilarious!! I got first place on Rainbow Road (DANG HARD COURSE!!!) as Baby Daisy (my favourite character! WAT?!) in a fish car called the "Cheep Charger" www.mariowiki.com/images/thumb… But the best race was when we played as Toad and Toadette on "Quackers" www.1up.com/flat/MyCheats/Mari… www.1up.com/flat/MyCheats/Mari…
I was riding a Valentine's PEEP!!! Even out own teammates were embarrassed of us cause they were sucking!

Time for a romantic movie~ "Dracula" with Bela Lugosi from 1931!!

Ken made pizza for dinner too~ MmmMmmMMMMMMM!

It was a very good day :iconlovehug:

:heart: KenCumpian

I've been to Johnny Rockets in Columbus and Cincinnati, and it has a very limited menu for me, but the atmosphere is absolutely amazing! It reminds me of going to the Prime Time Fifties Cafe at WDW's Hollywood Studios.

I have several Wii games and an art program that is probably meant more for kids, but it is fun to use, but I am simply awful at video games. On Epic Mickey I have not been able to get out of the first level!

Yeah I can make the two items I get from there (but not the good Smoke House sauce) but I LOVE the atmosphere. Rarely do I get to find "my" music outside my house. =D

I suck at level/fighting/story games. I can't beat Clayton at the end of the N64's Tarzan. I'm way better at racing and sports games (Kart, Mario Tennis) and the first Mario Party (N64. They are coming out with 9 now so mine's old and classic =D). But I have a tough time with boss levels and even if I do pass a hard level it is because I just fly through it. I don't get the boxes, or coins, or specialness. Just get it over with!

Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the Wii is GREAT. It has a level type option but it is more one-on-one and team-up fights with whichever character you want. And you can change the difficulty level of your opponent(s) (from a Puny 1 to a Nasty 9). [link]

I'm glad you had a great V-Day!
I love Mario Kart Wii too. It's one of my favorite games. I always play as Rosalina with the motercycle. The Coconut Mall is my favorite course ever =)

Also, happy almost 10 years to you two! I am so happy for you guys!! :w00t: :hug:

I tried Rosalina once but she was too heavy for me. The only Heavy class character I use on purpose is Waluigi on a standard motorcycle. After using the cycle for a while I can't stand using anything with 4 wheels. I like the tilt and the skinny design to sneak between things. I do like the Light class Blue Falcon 3-wheel jet. Super fast and super acceleration, but it sucks off-road. I can win 100cc races and even some mirror-mode 150cc singles but I definitely need an off-road type bike.
Lately with the Coconut Mall I have been having trouble with the red cars near the end. Lots of vehicular manslaughter with those things >< I don't really have a super favourite yet but I do enjoy Moonview Highway since it is a real challenge.

:glomp: Thanks!! :heart:

You sound like a pro! Go girl! :XD:

I never actually registered that Rosalina was a heavy class because I forgot the characters had classes..oops :x
Right on I like Waluigi too. He is a good one to use.
Same with me about the motorcycles. I HATE using Karts. I feel like they are too heavy. It's much easier to turn with Karts especially with the Wii Wheel.

haha yes those are annoying! It's funny though because your Mii's will show up in the cars and I got hit by myself and my dad one time xDD
Moonview is hard! I hate that one! I hate the Rainbow Road in that one too. UGH! :shakefist:

You're welcomed! :cuddle:

Heh, that squeely star of her's is all the weight I think (considering she FLOATS! :lol:)
I have begun experimenting with new characters and crazy vehicles. The "Tiny Titan" in the lightweight class is funky cause it is SO big for a baby but its stats suck in comparison to the other cars. I work best with the lightweight and the heavyweight classes. Mediums are kind of boring I guess. I tried Peach and S-U-C-K-E-D the first time (on a bike!). I ended up winning the 2nd 100CC with her in the "Daytripper" kart. Funky Kong sounds funny too when he jumps. Would never use a standard kart though. How boring! :giggle:

I haven't seen my Mii (haven't looked that closely I guess) but I have used my Mii in racing (I'm a heavyweight due to the extra height! Like Waluigi!)

LOVE Moonview. Plenty of good spots to leave traps :evillaugh: Just got to remember which side of the road to ride on (in Mirror Mode it's American! :lol:) Love/Hate for Rainbow Road. Love the challenge but I suck most of the time. I fall at minimum 3 times in one lap :facepalm:. I am also hating the Bowser's Castles from that set too, with the fireballs and half-pipe jumps. Suddenly I can't get those jumps oriented right and I either fall in the lava or I do a 180 and just go around in circles >< (Same with the ruins scores in that set).

Been annoyingly busy over here as usual. January was Hell trying to complete a 32 page sketchbook and did it with 3 hours to spare (3 hours before the PO was to close on the deadline day!). Super low of funds so I am trying to get commissions and do work and I usually end up getting distracted on MineCraft. Groups keep me busy too.

How have you been? :)

You did the Sketchbook Project this year? I did too! :w00t: Did you last year? I did that one and went to see them on tour in Chicago. :excited: It was awesome! I want to see it this year, but I doubt I'll be able to. :(

Yays! :woohoo:!
I didn't last year (planned and paid but didn't get it in :() but I am also doing the Limited Edition Sketchbook due at the end of April.
What theme did you choose? I chose 'Time Traveler'. I'm planning on posting my pages here but just haven't gotten to it. I did basically the whole thing in one month and I am just drained!! :faint:

Not sure if I'll see it or not.

I chose "This is a Sketchbook". I chose that because last year, even though I knew I'd have to mail it off, it was still so hard to do! So, I went with the "sketchbook" theme and used it to really just sketch out ideas to flesh out later.

I look forward to seeing what you did! All my pages are posted...took like a whole day! :eyepopping:

I did about half of mine in about a week. :lol: Procrastinators unite!! ;)

Nice~ I had so much to do and then ended up not using half of it >< The 1 inch thickness limit really caused the trouble cause I wanted to added a layer to each entry but that caused it to be 1.5 inches thick O_o I also wanted to make a box for the whole thing and had to shrink my sketchbook to 4.25 inches by 6.5 inches and I ended up not using the box either.

My Limited Edition Sketchbook theme is Time & Distance and a am doing a cross-era, modern vs. "oldies" story that is far more comical.

Last year's book was quite thick and I had a hard time filling it. I was happier with the size and page amount this year. Also this year, the pages didn't bleed through/show through as much as last year's.

I look forward to seeing both! :) (On here.)

Yeah I was able to gesso both sides of the pages and then paint them in acrylics. I also used graphite but had to blow dry the fixative spray dry cause the smell lingered :( No dusty mediums for the next one.
I have my pages home-scanned but some of them don't look so great. I won't post all of them but a few are good :)

I pulled 19 hours straight on the day prior to deadline and then 2 more hours before shipping it off. And to think I signed up for ANOTHER sketchbook! :faint: I got 2 ideas running around for that one so I should decide soon.
