Caryn and I went to Universal yesterday for her birthday. The main goal was to see JAWS pop out of the water. That ruled. The rest… not so much.
We had a good time making fun of people all day, but for the most part that place is G H E T T O. The “Van Helsing” ride (“ride” is bullshit – you have to walk yourself through) is *barely* a step above a haunted house at a traveling carnival – the entire thing boils down to 4 people jumping out saying “boo” or whatever. And I swear to god it’s the land of the 10 thousand ADD kids who, in addition to being possessed by satan, have parents who let them run completely wild and have zero concern for anyone else around them. And holy crap are people fat. And it’s official, it’s nineteen eighty-sucks fasion all over again. And WTF is up with the Jurrassic Park ride? Why didn’t they just put a dino hat on me and throw me in a pool? At least that would have been honest. And if 100 people fit in a room for a show, maybe just put 100 people in there rather than squeezing 250 in. IT’S DAMN UNCOMFORTABLE. I didn’t just fork out all that cash to be uncomfortable. I just posted some pics I snapped on my phonecam though out the day.
Maybe I’ll write more later. Maybe I’ll just try to forget it.
