    Back from King's Dominion. Had a great time being ridiculous with some friends and riding a whole bunch that weren't running last time I was there.

    And god I :wub: the 305 :lol: the number is for the height of the peak in feet, drops past vertical, speed and g, etcetc.

    Is the 305 the one that goes both straight up and then straight back down at one point as a rollercoaster?

    My current happy(s):
    Went into GC since my last post and they had a G55 relay on sale for $297 unopened. MINE!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Atlanta monsoon last night didn't cause anything but crowd size problems and we survived our 2d gig (opening for Venomous Maximus) with little issue aside from my out-of-tune-booboos during a cpl of solos lol (hey man....even Petrucci does it once in a while).

    I was supposed to fly back to Korea today, but there were mechanical issues with my first flight, so it was delayed long enough that I missed my connecting flight from DFW to Seoul. To make matters worse, the next flight to Korea isn't until tomorrow morning. Weak.

    "Hey idiot," I hear you thinking, "this is the why are you HAPPY thread, and that's some shitty business you've just dumped on us."

    WELL. Turns out there was only one empty seat left on the flight tomorrow, and the seat is in first class. First class! I get a free bump from coach, past business, clear on up to first. I've only ever flown coach, so this is a (pathetically) big deal for me. I'm SUPER stoked.

    To make matters even better for me / worse for my wallet, the hotel the airline is putting me in for the day/night is RIGHT BEHIND a Guitar Center. I figured hey, the goodies compartment in my new flight case could probably hold another pedal or two, so I grabbed a Korg tuner pedal and a TC Electronics DittoX2 looper pedal.

    Never been so glad to have to deal with travel delays.

    Guess who got to the airport only to find out he had been bumped back down to coach?

    Me. Of course. Why else would I ask that? C'mon, people.

    Anyways. I was livid, obviously. Livid enough that I went against my usual non-confrontational nature and went to the counter and made a stink about it. I apparently was able to convey my anger well enough that they at least bumped me up to business class (thought there was only one seat left, jaggoffs), which was miles better than coach, but still not the first class I had gotten all pumped up for.

    Oh well. It was a loss compared to the first class I was expecting, but a gain compared to the coach I paid for. A bit shittier getting home a day later than planned, but meh.

    Got my golden cello pedal today, loving it so far! Great for old bluesy rock stuff, and in just a few minutes in playing with the overdrive I got tones as ballsy as early Mastodon. I'm gonna love playing with the delay on this thing! :shred:

    Got some vocal packs to try out for starting out my electronic music production. Hopefully they sound decent.

    Back in my apartment in Korea, despite the airline's best efforts to fvck things up.

    A preview of the NBD/NAD/NED thread to come in the following week or so:

    Because I'm 21 today and spending this evening at a dinner with my family, then come Friday all mayhem breaks loose and having a rock of ages party, dressed as favourite musician or time period, get drunk, get stuffed and have a big ol family jam.

    An there's gonna be a f*ckin bucking bronco :fawk:

    My girlfriend messaged me that she loves me lots and lots, and when I messaged her asking how much lots and lots is, she replied with "I love you more than you love Dimebag".

    I hate it that I get drunk almost every day nowadays because I have awesome roommates. That makes me happy.

    EDIT: btw, I'm beginning to notice that I post in this thread whenever I get drunk these days. I might not be so happy about that. :lol: I am actually a happy person whenever I'm not drunk, I'm just not compelled to write about it. :lol:
