I don't post here if at all. I read on here every couple of days, but that's about it. I'm much more at home blogging about things on my Wordpress blog, like book reviews or talk about places I've been things, I've done. I keep this for super personal stuff. But even then I still run to 750words.com

Most people who follow me on here are ones who are on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or Wordpress. Not many people interact with me on here anymore. Not that people interact with me on Wordpress, but it's always interesting to see my stats and where they come from and what they are clicking on. For example, this past weekend was BEA. Sometime last year I wrote about my Power Reader experiences. That post spiked in views this past week. Sadly I didn't get to BEA this year b/c of Wizard World Philly. But next year, BEA is the same time and Philly Comic Con is pushed back by two weeks.

Also, I watch NCIS, and that fandom is crazy. I don't post about Doctor Who anymore because I've got an unpopular opinion. So I have no real need to post fandom stuff anymore. If I do anything, I look for pictures on Tumblr, but stay far far away from anything resembling discussion on there.

and whatever funny show that's like a half hour at the gym I can stream on their wifi. My mom and I started going to the gym and I kind of enjoy it. Well I enjoy certain pieces of equipment.

Then the local zoo by me has gotten giraffes for the summer. Cue tons of giraffe pictures.

If you are FB friends with me all the cuteness is up there. If not, I'll get it on flickr eventually.

So [livejournal.com profile] shamazipan asked me a wonderful question on Facebook, about what does credit whoring, credits, and what not mean when it comes to roller coasters.

I'm going to do my best and try to explain everything in one little nifty post.

So first off, I love roller coasters always have and always will. Being the dork that I am I had always written down, or took pictures of the coasters that I've been on but I never really thought too much of it until I went on Theme Park Reviews Northeast trip last year. 

Right before the trip, I realized I had been on 98 different coasters, and while on that trip I was going to finally get into the triple digits. This excited me. In the coaster community we term each new coaster we ride as a credit, as in we credit ourselves for riding it. 

So what counts and doesn't count as a credit. This is up to the individual. There are websites out there like coastercounter.com, coaster-count.com and a couple others that allow you to track online what roller coasters you have been on. Me? I use both of those websites plus a website called rcdb.com (Roller Coaster Data base, pretty much an encyclopedia of every coaster in the world.) I currently have a word document that lists what order I've ridden the coasters in (so if I get to a milestone number I can print a sign up and be all dorky), what park the coaster is located at. (I'm in the process of making a spreadsheet to include where the park is located and when the ride opened, because I'm starting to ride some older coasters out there). 

What it means to credit whore: Simply put it's trying to get your way onto a kiddie coaster, either by bribing, sweet talking, or telling them in their guides that there are no height requirements. So when we are all talking about being whores on facebook, it usually means we've tried and sometimes succeeded in getting a kiddie coaster as a credit.

Also whoring it up means going to a bunch of parks and getting all the credits in a day or even a couple hours. For example yesterday I was with my fellow coaster nerd Derek, and we just started out the day by going to this tiny little ghetto-y park way in North Jersey called Keansburg. We finished there in about 20 minutes, but had to use the rest of the tickets we bought so we did a couple other rides, but still was out of the park in under an hour because that's when our meter ran out.  We decided to check on the traffic into Brooklyn, cause Derek needed the 4 new credits at Coney Island. Traffic didn't look so bad so we made our way to Coney Island.  So that can be described as whoring it up, because we were one place that was close to another place and said what the heck lets go to the other one as well cause we can. 

Also whoring it up can mean paying money to get into a park for one ride, ie Victorian Gardens in Central Park NYC. The park is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day because it's on Wollman Ice Skating Rink. Now for Derek, it was only slightly whoring it up and funny that he paid to get in to ride the mini mouse coaster, but it was really whoring it up for me, because I got this credit earlier this year when I went to BEA. So I paid to get into the park and paid for ride tickets to ride the ride I already rode. But it was much better riding with friends than being forced to sit with some random 5 year old. 

For the record I'm currently at 237 new roller coasters. (Something i wish I had done, was keep track of how many times I had been on certain rides, so I could know how many times I've ridden a particular ride.)

But that's the down and dirty on Credits, Credit Whoring, and other random coaster geeky talk.  Oh yeah, riding roller coasters is a freaking expensive hobby. But totally worth every penny. 

Any more questions, just ask, I'll try to answer. :)

I know I fell off the wagon with this. But in all the 170 roller coasters I have ridden, I just wasn't sure which I wanted to do next. Then I thought about it, and this entry is dedicated to:

Hercules at Dorney Park http://rcdb.com/241.htm

No pictures of it from me, but in the link you can see the pictures.

This coaster was my first "big person" coaster. It took a while but I finally reached the height limit and I rode it with my mom. I remember her being scared that I was going to fly out. I don't remember much about the first time I rode it, I just remember fun. and getting off and asking my dad to ride with me, because my mom wouldn't ride again.

I'm going home this weekend, so I'm going to see if I can dig up some old pictures of Dorney and Hercules if we have any.

The next entry on my 100 things list is:

The Phoenix at Knoebels Amusement Resort in Elysburg, Pa (http://rcdb.com/143.htm)

100_9225

IMG_6819

This is one of my FAVORITE coasters EVER. See I used all caps there. It means I like it A LOT. I remember first riding this back in Spring of 2002 when going to Knoebels for the first time with the concert band in college. I freaked out at the amount of air time I got on this ride. I don't freak out a lot on coasters, but just by looking at the Phoenix, it just wasn't expected.

Over the years, this woodie has won my heart over, and now it just feels weird if it isn't one of the first rides of the coaster season.

Over the off season, they seem to have re-tracked parts of it, and it has just made the ride even better.

I could also go on about my love for Knoebels, but I'll do that as a separate entry. Cause there's a lot to love about the place.

So now you've seen my top 3 wooden coasters on here. I promise to add more steel coasters to my count I mean I've got 96 more to go. I think after I do the first 10, I'll do 10 coasters I look forward to riding this year, and then coasters I want to ride in the future.

So my next roller coaster is my very first roller coaster ever.

That is the Toboggan at Trimpers Rides in Ocean City, Maryland. (http://rcdb.com/301.htm)

100_1990

100_1991

I remember being put into the cage like contraption with my dad. and thinking it was quite fun to be riding up a completely vertical lift. I just remember enjoying the entire ride. I'm not sure why, but I always did.

The second roller coaster I'm featuring is:

Boulder Dash at Lake Compounce (http://rcdb.com/602.htm)

IMG_2583

Why I love Boulder Dash: As this picture pretty much shows, There isn't a lot of the ride you can see at all. It's built into the mountain, and that just makes it awesome. It also goes a little more than 60mph through the mountain, and doesn't slow down at all until you hit the breaks.

On my TPR trip last year, we had ERT (Exclusive Ride Time) on this at night. In the mountains, there's no lights. You couldn't see anything on the ride at all. I just remember lots of laughs about how awesome the ride was being that night.

So I was going to wait until tomorrow to post this, but I just decided to heck with it, and get this started today.

Since I've gone to Six Flags Great Adventure twice so far this amusement park season. I'm going to start my 100 things with ONE of my favorite wooden roller coasters. (I have 3 that are interchangeably my top 3 and all will be featured in due time) but today belongs to:

El Toro (http://rcdb.com/3183.htm)

IMG_4990


Why I love El Toro. It's tall, it's fast, and it's just plain awesome. It opened in 2006 and it still feels just as smooth today as it did back then. I also love the lift hill. It's not your typical clank of the chain lift, but it's a cable lift, so instead of minutes to get to the top of the lift hill it's a matter of seconds.

Every time I go to Great Adventure, I have to ride El Toro. The park has 12 other roller coasters, and while some of those are awesome. I just have to ride El Toro every time.

100 Things

{Take the 100 Things challenge!}


So I think this is a fantastic way to get me back blogging here on LiveJournal. I've kind of ditched the LJ for WordPress, because I'm trying to get some blogging experience and whatnot. My WordPress blog is still very small in terms of followers because I just don't believe in the begging people to read and comment thing.

But I'm going to do this 100 things challenge. And I think this year for me, the perfect topic is going to be Amusement Parks/Roller Coasters.

So sit down and enjoy the ride!
music_coaster2010: (text)
 I'm pretty sure I set myself up for exhaustion in May.

First off is the WalkMS. I've created a team Coastin' to a Cure. (Why yes, I've linked to my team page). I also apologize if you follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or follow me on my blog. You are going to see that link a lot in the next 6 weeks. 

But after the walk, the weekend of May 18-20th I'm headed out to Cedar Point, with a friend from TPR. I couldn't pass up on the fact we'll stop at Kennywood on the way home. Once I have Kennywood, plus the TPR trip in July I'll have all the big parks visited in PA. 

Then after that it's Memorial Day weekend, and I'm headed up to Toronto to visit Jazz! We're going to wonderland again! I'm excited. 

Lastly, the weekend after that is the Philadelphia Comic Con.  

Actually not lastly, I forgot the week after that is the 8th of June and I'm headed to Baltimore to visit Laurie and see an Orioles game.

She may have to set Oz and Holden on me on Saturday morning to get me out of bed, lol. 

But I can say being this busy in May, and a little busy in the rest of March and April is a lot better than where I was a year ago, so I'm not going to complain :D

 Shar   gave me these questions :)


1) What's the scariest roller coaster you've ever been on?

I actually had to sit and kind of really think about this. Scariest in terms of height/speed are Top Thrill Dragster and Kingda Ka. Currently the tallest coasters in the US If you don't count Superman at Six Flags Magic Mountain (There's debate as to if it's a coaster or not for this LJ entry it's not, but my stance is if it's on coastercounter.com it counts). These rides are short, but they are over 400ft high and there's always a chance of a roll back with these rides too. So that makes them "scary"

Then there are the "flying coasters where you are on your stomach. The ones where you are in a cage are awkward just because there's that much more room to bang around, but the scary ones have to be Superman: Ultimate Flight. It's just awkward to me have that much faith in a restraint, because all your weight is against it. But it's the closest to actually flying so once you lose yourself in the flying moment, the fear goes away.


2) Where in the US have you not visited but would like to and why?

Most of the US. I've been to every state on the east coast, and few others spattered throughout the rest of the US. But I think I kind of want to see Mount Rushmore though. And the Grand Canyon. As to Why, they photograph so well, and they are like some of the things in the US you should see before you die, so yeah, that's why I want to go see them.

I'd also like to visit the Pacific Northwest as well. Seattle and Portland. I don't know why, but still I want to visit all 50 states. 

3) What's the best book you've read so far this year?

So far I've only read a bunch of kids books. I go through phases where I just want to read them. I'm in that phase now. But I did read Pulled Long by Christine D'Abo a nice m/m story with some steamy sex scenes that I was like ohh I wish this was longer. 

And the books that can give me hours of amusement and appease my inner 5 year old are the Farts: A spotters guide books. (They have little push buttons and it demonstrates different types of farts. Funny how a book about farts can be the ultimate stress reliever).

4) What are you most looking forward to at the minute?

This minute I'm looking forward to finishing cleaning my apartment, because it's almost clean and almost presentable. My mom won't have a holy shit fit when my aunt and cousin come to visit. 

And Chris won't have a heart attack either when he comes to visit.

So the past two years my goal was 100,000 words. I failed miserably. Especially in 2010. 2010 was a crappy writing year for me. But I can already feel that 2011 is going to be different.

This year my WriYe goal is 75,000.


- Jan-Feb-March
- April-May-June
- July-August-September
- October-November-December



-Year Grand Total

WriYe: http://wriye.proboards.com/index.cgi


Writing Projects:

TW Writing Prompts: I may or may not ever get around to writing them. You can thank the crazies in the fandom for that.
Original Pieces:
-Brad and Michael story
-Jenny and Johnny: NaNo 2009, update for BYB
Fan-fic: Christian and Syed, It's all about the story with that fandom, or maybe I've learned to stay away from the nutters.
Script Frenzy 2011: http://scriptfrenzy.org/ - I'll be taking an idea from when i was a kid and writing it. I found an outline with ideas of stuff that I never wrote. I'm writing it this year.
NaNoWriMo 2011: http://www.nanowrimo.org/ - I don't know yet. But I need to come up with an idea. I learned that from 2010.

So that should keep me motivated for the year.

I'm not even sure who reads this, but it can't be that many people.

Anywho, it's that time of year. The year end round up.

January:
-Panto (has it been a year already??)
-Hung out with friend who is not my friend, because she's simply easily manipulated, and chose to be friends with people she barely knew over a friendship that had been 7 years long. The joys of being in a sorority. You really do pay for your friends, and when you no longer wish to associate with the losers of the group, you end up with no "friends".

February:
-Didn't do much in February. This is also when I hurt myself shoveling, which in turn would lead to a variety of other things happening later on.

March:
-Les Mis and met up with a friend who is also not a friend, but for different reasons than first friend. This now non friend, can't handle the truth even though they asked for it. And likes to suck up a lot. But said non friend, also just tried to apologize to me, and I think got pissed off that I mentioned I was still friends with his now ex. Hasn't talked to me since. (Could also be the ultimatim I gave him as well...)

-I also worked on that 40 day picture challenge that I never finished on here. Oh well.

April:
-Surgery (no I'm not bitter that I still didn't get to see TSO or Daniel Radcliffe in H2$, not at all, and no I am still not trying to figure out a way to get to Reading in the middle of the week and convince my parents to go see TSO with me in 2012 for the same concert I missed this year, not at all...)

-Also got to meet The Fabulous Beekman Boys for the first time at what was my first doing something since my surgery thing. They'll never know but Josh and Brent are the guys who kept me sane while recovering. Reading Josh's books, and watching the show, was a decent way to recover.

May:
-Ventured to the Zoo with Laurie and said non friend from March. I distinctly remember walking around was feeling pretty good, but the sitting still bothered my scar.

June
-NKOTBSB and Glee Concerts had a panic attack that the BSB one, realized that I really can't handle being at the top of the Wells Fargo Center anymore.
-June is also when I started seeing my counselor.
-June is also when work went to shit.
-Saw Reduced at the Kennedy Center

July
-Knoebels with Chris, Laurie, Dave, and non friend. First amusement park since my surgery, went well, still was a bit sore, but starting to finally feel like I was getting back to "normal"
-Saw and met the band Marcy Playground
-EPIC TPR Trip of awesome. What can I say? Awesome new friends, and rides, and yeah. It was just epic. Best vacation ever. (could also be that I didn't have to plan ANYTHING, I just had to show up)

August
-Finished out epic trip of awesome
-Saw Uncle Vanya at the Kennedy Center
-Visited my friends Kate and Kelly at their place in Va.

Apparently nothing else that interesting happened since I didn't post that month.

September
-My 29th Birthday
-Harvest Fest up in Sharon Springs (aka meet the Beekman Boys again). Such a Fabulous weekend. Fantastic amazing food, and wonderful people. (Oh and I totally model walked with Josh).
-Went up to New York city to see Graham norton's Would you Rather being taped
-Went to dinner with Chris and his daughter

October:
-Knoebels: Phoenix Phall Phunfest, met up with a friend from the TPR trip and hung out with him and his friends. Got to ride Black Diamond on opening day.
-Dutch Wonderland- Yes, I'm a coaster credit whore, went to a kiddie park just to ride the coaster. Realized that it's not the kids that are the problems, it's the freaking parents.
-Great Adventure- Got the rest of my missing coaster credits from great adventure.
-Knoebels: Interesting to say the least, said non friend really wasn't being friendly, and caused lots of tension amongst the group.
-Christian Kane concert, was after Knoebels, and was supposed to start at 10. Arrived at 9:45 and he was halfway into his set. Also saw non friend from January, there. Subtly gave her evil looks, wished I knew some voodoo or something to spook her. Would have been hilarious. concert was good, even though we were on the side, downside, something in the bar made my allergies go absolutely INSANE. Eyes red and watering, and sneezing, itching blargh. So sadly we left early.
-Met the Beekman Boys for the third time. Have I mentioned how much I adore and respect them??
-Went on a business trip to chicago, ate my way through Lake Forrest, IL. Want to go back.
-Geared up for NaNoWriMo

November:
-Saw La Cage Aux Folles
-had falling out with non friend
-Saw Hugh Jackman on Broadway (stage doored it and got him to sign my playbill)
-Went to dinner with Chris at an awesome place in Philly.
-Did 15K words for NaNoWriMo, work ate my soul and took over any free time.
-Went to some great write-ins though for NaNo.
-Saw Gary Hoey in concert

December
-Went to Q102's Jingle Ball saw some awesome people in concert
-Went with Laurie and Chris to see the Nemour's Mansion and Gardens
-Work office building officially closed, am now a remote employee. Still uncertain about things, but feel a teenyweeny bit more secure about work, and by teeny bit I mean really tiny.
-Went to Longwood Gardens this Christmas eve, to continue the new family tradition of going out.
-Christmas came and went was good :)


Overall lots of changes happened.

I also read 58 books this year. Go checkout my Wordpress Blog to see my book lists over the years, and some book rambling.

I'll probably post on my Wordpress page about goals and items for 2012.

Also check out http://writingfiles.weebly.com I'm starting a book review site, just to review books I've read. 98% will be older books, but I signed up for NetGalley, and will be reading the occasional new books as well to review.

So from here on out, I'm just listing the books I've read here written blurbs will be on my website.

My list for books I've finished from December 25th, 2010 to December 25th 2011

1. Exploring Limits by Nicki Bennett & Ariel Tachna 171 pages - I got this ebook free when made a comment on the DSP facebook page and I knew it was giong to be good, but I just didn't realize how good it was going to be. really hot. And it's a 6 part series.

2. Stretching Limits by Nicki Bennett & Ariel Tachna 153 pages- Book 2 in the series. Just as hot as the first.

3. Mr. Bump and the Knight by Robert Haregreaves 31 pages Yes, a childrens manners book, but I live in the gutter and I had to get it based on the title.

4. The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson 32 pages Another children's book. I had never heard of it, but [livejournal.com profile] shamazipan loves it, so it was at Hamleys so I got it. And I have to agree, it's quite adorable.

5. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Roderick Rules by Jeff Kinney 217 pages I read the first one, I have to read them all.

6. Good Morning Gorillas, Magic Tree House #26 by Mary Pope Osborne 75 pages Yes, I am bound and determined to eventually read all of them. Eventually.

7. Making his List by Devon Rhodes 76 pages- Another Dreamspinner Press book. I kind of wish this wasn't just a stand alone. I'd like a little future maybe like 6 months from now, to see how everything ended up between the main characters.

8. The Hoboken Chicken Emergency by Daniel Pinkwater 109 pages- Borrowed this from the library purely for the fact it had a chicken on the cover. It's a children's humor book, that was apparently very popular in the late 70's. I can see it's appeal, and the little illustrations in it were humourous and I can see why people love it. I can see this book being one that is read around Thanksgiving, because the story starts on Thanksgiving.

9. Looking for Bobowicz by Daniel Pinkwater 201 pages

10. The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick 533 pages

11. Magic Tree House #2: The Knight at Dawn by Mary Pope Osborne 66 pages

12. Magic Tree House #4: Pirates Past Noon by Mary Pope Osborne 67 pages

13. Magic Tree House #5: Night of the Ninjas by Mary Pope Osborne 69 pages

14. Magic Tree House #7: Sunset of the Sabertooth by Mary Pope Osborne 68 pages

15. Magic Tree House #8: Midnight on the Moon by Mary Pope Osborne 70 pages

16. Magic Tree House #11: Lions at Lunchtime by Mary Pope Osborne 70 pages

17. Fat Men from Space by Daniel Pinkwater 57 pages

18. Stuff my Stocking: M/M Romances that are Naughty & Nice by Various Authors 285 pages

19. Fat Camp Comandos by Daniel Pinkwater 89 pages
