Let me tell you about the effort and ordeal I went through to gather material for this blog entry....I SHOULD get paid to write this blog. It's like a full time job sometimes. Today I spent hours on this.....adventure.
It started at 12 30 pm when I met up Desi and another girl, Skyler to see IT . I read IT a long time ago as a teenager in Sweden. I recall having the two books in the bookshelf and I would puposely NOT look at them when I walked by because they scared me, yes even the books scared me merely by sitting in the bookshelf.
IT is a scary story.
I got the bright idea to take some pics with a red balloon after the movie. So I went balloon hunting this afternoon. I got three balloons.....and drove over to Desi's house with them.
Since it wasn't raining today and we weren't going to look for a storm drain we decided to take the pics on the train track because it has a bit of a scary/eerie feel to it.
We got to the train track and started taking pics. I asked Desi if the trains go by often and she said "only at night". So we are in the middle of the track.....and all of a sudden we hear a LOUD horn blaring behind us and turn around only to see a train coming full speed towards us, blaring it's horn. HOLY SHIT! We got off that train track as fast as we could and the train loudly rattled past us while we screamed and laughed at the same time, I think I hyperventilated as well. WTF!
I can say this much with conviction.....had the train driver not sounded that horn, me and Desi would be dead. We did NOT hear that train approaching, only the horn blaring.
After calming down we continue taking pics. As we were wrapping up Desi sees somebody coming our way and she says...."here comes the police". YES indeed, two uniformed officers walk up to us and ask us what we are doing and then continue to inform us that it is a FELONY to be on train tracks and something about trespassing. I must have looked like a deer caught in the headlights.....seriously I was like WHAAAAAT?!? I just had a vision of me getting handcuffed and hauled off to jail for innocently taking pictures on a train track, I started thinking about Chhaya and getting bailed out.....We explained that we had seen IT earlier, felt inspired and wanted to take some pics with red balloons.
I wonder what the officers were thinking when they were talking to us.....anyhow. We got off with some talking to. I will NEVER again walk on train tracks unless I have to cross them. I almost died and then I thought I was going to get a felony......FUN TIMES!
So, the pictures! Here are the pictures from our little adventure on the train track or should I say railroad tracks? I'm not sure which one is the right one to say.
A pic of Desi.....
So after that I went on my way and we decided to meet up later for some sweaty gym time. On my way to the gym it dawned on me....ONE balloon, it should had been ONE balloon. I got three at the store because I was going to give one to Desi and do something else with the other two. Not use all three for the pictures (except one pic from the front that I am not showing here).....but when we got down to the train track I totally did not even think about it. So I sent Desi a text.....
Seriously, I have been in a fog since Burning Man. I can be confused and forgetful sometimes but not like THIS. Welcome to the Loser's Club indeed! Then we went and worked out. I had the balloons in my car, so after the workout I just had to get it right. ONE balloon. Here it is.....
I still had a vision of a pic in my mind, the last one with a storm drain. So I set out to find one.
We all float down here.....
Oh....how was the movie? It was OK. Scary and not scary. I liked the acting. Remember it's based on a book and supposed to follow the storyline. If you are scared of clowns you should DEFINITELY see it!
