Gone in November
As some will obviously know, Thali has been on vacation for the month of November. It was a good time though transit on this trip was my downfall. xD On November 2nd Thali had to take a cab because he did not clear his ride through the shift lead in his shop, $120. But after the ride with the arguably greatest cab driver in the world, (Stereotypical black guy, who talked of his son boosting CDs and getting caught having to bail him out, a powder blue crown Victoria that sounded if it could die at any moment, his next door neighbor drug dealers with their dog, Man. Eating fried chicken and talking about prostitution. If that doesn't fit a steriotype then I might be a racist, but this is what he talked about on the ride to the airport.) I had a good flight to Sacramento International Airport, where I was greeted by my mother, aunt and grandmother, the last of which is fairly feeble in her old age.
I arrive at my mothers house and am greeted by a sweet dog named megan who takes to me that night so much that for the remainder of the trip she's no longer my mother's dog. She's mine. Other then a very needy neurotic but friendly dog those few days go without too much incident. I find a book I've been wanting and I eat very well. x3

^Megan and my grandmother^


Now I'm off to Arizona with my Da, to see my brother and niece. Oh, and my brother's girlfriend Heather... I guess. No one in my family likes Heather but we put up with her because she is Taylor's mother. She's not a good one by any means but she is Taylor's mother. I get to the trailer in Quartzsite and when I open the door, This cute little girl walks up to me and hands me one of her toys asking "Whats that?" My heart melts and I just love my little niece. I wish I had more pictures but due to a misfortune to be stated later I do not.
That night my father and I go to Karaoke at the Quartzsite Yacht Club, a bar not to far from my fathers trailer. I then realize just the type of community I'm in. Its been much too long since I'd been down there but it's a retirement community. Cheap to live there but not much for a young man such as myself to look at, but that night I have a couple of drinks and ask my father for his car, as I had a couple of days before going on the trip planned a date of sorts. He said yes. The next week was run with the chaos of a little girl with no real parent. Sweet as she is she has no real chance without my Ma and Da. I also meet my cousin Jeffery and go four wheeling with Jeffery and Jordie his older brother, whom I'd met the last time I was in Arizona. Thought it had been years since that and he looks nothing like the kid I remember.
Anyhow, I got scratched up on the Four wheeler, my brother ruined one of me games and Jeffery was driving me nuts because I had an XBox. xD Then that friday came around and I went on my Date. Oceanside CA is a nice place when you know where you're going. x3 I got lost a few times trying to get to her apartment but once there I was both relieved that I didn't wreck, as some migt know Thali isn't an expert driver as most are. He got his license about a year ago, so a 5 hour road trip was trying. And Excited as Thali has never done anything of this sort before. Borrowing a car to drive five hours barely knowing where you're going, to spend a weekend with a girl you barely know. It was like being a Teenager, which Thali couldn't be when he was a teenager. x3
Her name is Steph. She and I had a great weekend filled with games and a few learning experiences for Thali. x3 It seems that Thali is good with his hands and tongue. x3 Though a Bra is a bit harder to take of then I had anticipated, but then again I never had the practice before either. Needless to say it was a fun trip.
The last day there, a Sunday, after we'd been up for a while, I'd decided to leave. I picked up my phone, which I'd been using about an hour before and it was off, and wouldn't turn on. Thus Thali lost all of his photos of his niece and everyone in Arizona, as he hadn't backed them up onto his laptop while with Steph. Anyhow, Steph walked with Thali to his car, we kissed goodbye, and Thali left. Never to be heard from again, as he wrecked and died. x3

Alright that didn't happen the way I said but Thali was tired and very distracted at the time and pulled off to get something to drink... But he locked the kys in the car. He tried calling locksmiths and tow people but nothing and no one could help so he bought a hammer and broke into the car. A folly that would cost him $1250. Thali does regret that it happened but doesn't regret a single penny of the trip itself.

After a couple more days in Arizona I had to say goodbye to my niece and my brother so that I could spend thanksgiving with my mother, as I had previously planned. I still miss Taylor. It was around this time thogh that I got my phone fixed. xD The apple consultant had the same problem with it as I did but it was replaced and other then the loss of all my photos of Taylor no harm was done.
Thanksgiving is a time when family gets together and eats turkey. Oh and also we're supposed to be thankful for all the stuff we have in life and yadda yadda ya... I saw Family I hadn't seen in years and some that haddn't seen me since I was about Taylors age, (She's just about two. x3) It was a Good time. Watching the Raiders lose, which almost upset my mom except that she expected it, and eating until completely stuffed.

^ I swear all this photo needs is trailers instead of houses and it'd be white trash. x3
(In the photo my cousin Amber, holding her dog French fry. Her Boyfriend Drew. My cousin Isabella, the one with the red highlights, and part of my cousin Christina. The dogs are Dela and Spartacus)

^ Family. ^_^
(In the photo, My aunt Kathy, Her cons Chris [Hair] and JR [beanie cap]. The one in the green is my Aunt Dianne's son, who's name escapes me, Cousin Chris' Daughter Alex, My Aunt Krystalin [tiara and black outfit], My Cousin Rose [Her head is turned away at that moment so you cannot see.] , A church friend named Kathy, [The one in the white.] My Grandmother and Christine's husband with their newest baby.)

^ Same as the last but with Cousin Mike and a gentleman in the Background I do not know...

^ Crystalin's son and my uncle Don are in this photo as well. Figure them out on your own. Also obscured is Krystalin's daughter.

My Ma, cousin JR and I. JR's on a chair for those who can't see it. x3

I enjoyed the trip, and I now owe someone 80 dollars because I had to split the cab fare with them as no one else was able to help me get home as I didn't ask but a couple of hours beforehand. So lessons learned: always keep a debit card on you, Always ask a couple of days in advance for a ride, always ask the shift superviser if someone could give you a ride, and always take a spare key with you and store it in your wallet. Or at least make it a habit to take the keys... $1250...
