My Date with Procto Turi’el (John MacConkey)
Well its been nearly 5-6 years now that I have known a friend who followed me from Rubera, Solera, and now Xantera over the course of 8 years of my Tibian Life. I have decided July 5 to visit this friend.
So I booked a ticket 2 days after thinking of visiting Procto Turi’el. Arrived around 7pm his time. As I make my way out to the baggage claiming area theres this guy in his shorts, tan-ish hat, and hands in his pocket. Instantly without knowing for sure its Procto, I went up and greet him with a hand shake and “Hug” (oh my god, I’m not gay). I stood there and waited close to 30 minutes for my luggage to be spotted. I was getting worried that I have lost the luggage with my 7 pairs of clothes for the 8 days trip in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
Day 1: Die Hard
After a whole day of trying to adapt to the weather with the humidity I was about to suicide myself. I live in the West Coast of United States and its not humid or even hot in the 90’s. But with the humidity that was built over the days it makes it worse. Breathing was very hard. Trying to get in all the oxygen my brain needs was triple the breathing to even get enough. Later in the afternoon getting sick of staying in the house the whole day we decided to head out.
John and I decided to head to the movies “together”. Now notice that word together. We decided to head to Lynden Haven AMC 8 to watch Die Hard new movie. Initially we wanted to see Transformer but it was sold out so we had to wait an hour or so. So we went around the mall and cruise gadgets in “brook store” (a collection of cool gadgets). As we cruise this store, there’s this semi-hot girl….wait I lied, she was hot. Feeling awkward as I pass by her, I turned to john and said..
“Hey John, I feel weird going to the movies with you. Just me and you.”
(looked at john and grinned)
– I made sure I said it loud enough so the hot chick heard what I said.
2-3 minutes later I went over and ask her to the movies and she said “No, I have a bf to go with, if not I might”
(Not sure if she said exact the words but she said something like that.)
Damn I was declined (10 second hurts and it was gone).
Sad story eh? The movie continued…..
So we went to the movies an hour later. Grabbed our seats, then my date for the evening “Procto Turi’el” grabbed some popcorn and drinks for us. As we sat 15 minutes watching Advertisement, suddenly a swift breeze of Victoria Secret scent (Gurantee guys who peek at VS girls sure can recognize this smell) past by John and I. I looked up and there she was, the same girl that decline me walked by.
Sad eh? Hurts to be declined, hurts even more when she sits one seat next to you….but the movie continues…….
Day 2: Golf Lesson with Cigars
In the morning we decided to hit the Golf Course. I never really went golfing before so this experience was a blast. Before leaving Don, John’s father gave me a cigar and asks if I want one. Even though I never smoke or try I said “yes”
Well lets skip the the details of getting to the golf course. But anyways while at the golf course on a 100 degree hot day. I gave up after the 3rd hole. Feeling the sweat and a sweat butt I gave up. I cant stand this anymore so I decided to quit and sit in the golf cart with the wonderful cigar a “taste of being rich” .
Well john taught me how to play golf and how to swing. It was sweet….what a date……. I would post up pictures but then I would probably be ban for it.
Day 3: A cruise at Broad Way with crappy “Seafood”
Today we decided to go Jet Skii but then the weather wasn’t suitable for Jet Ski. So we decided to cruise Broad way down to 9th steet Virginia Beach. After being in Virginia 3 days and some hours I haven’t seen anything to wash my eyes. So we decided to go for a cruise. After talking about business matters while walking along the beach (thank lord he didn’t grab my hands. Or I would cry –jk)
After trying to find several restaurant we settle down with this Bay Seafood Buffet restaurant. The food there wasn’t as great. The bill was 70 bucks and it tasked like crap. Gaaa, I hate it when a restaurant looks great but then the food is bad.
Day 4: A Date at the Beach “Jet Ski”
Well since we couldn’t go ski yesterday so we decided to head it today. Around 2 o’clock we head to the Jet Ski rental 1-2 blocks away from John’s house. After getting there we found out that we had to wait 1 hour or so to even get one. So John wanted to get me “wet” now now, don’t get that wrong. Hahaaha. Well we went into the water and stood there to cool down while waiting for our turn on the Jet Skii.
Well the wait was worth it. Even though we both nearly ran into each other and would of killed each other if john response was as slow as he is on tibia I would have been hospitalize typing this with my two fingers (just like the Radio Shack guy we saw when we went to get Hub so I can access the internet throught Cat 5 Cables. I died 2 times because of it too, Wireless SUCKS, I feel sad for those who plays on wireless).
Day 5: Oh my god, another movie
Well Today it was different, John’s father Don and Denise decided they want to go see Die Hard so asked us to join. Since we already watch Die Hard, John (procto) wanted to see Transformers. So we went to see Transformer. (Great great movie). While buying our tickets we saw that Harry Potter was coming out Wednesday and opening knight is Tuesday 12:01. So we booked the ticket ASAP and relied that we got “Monsters” (energy Drink) to keep our heads awake.
Day 6: A day on the computer
By this time I’m so sick of going out so we decided to stay inside and play tibia all day long and logged at 10 or so to hit the movies for harry potter. On our way there we grabbed 2 can of energy drink to keep our brains awake since the movie is 12 AM ……god I didn’t even know they show movies that late. I mean START movie that late.
Though the date have seem passed like no other days. I seem to begin to miss my internet at home. I am a computer freak. I designed my mainframe network at home and backup internet to the point that I hardly get any kick. And if I do then its my whole town that’s having the problem and not only me. John tries to scary me everyday that that a storm is coming. This is irritating me that the storm might delay my trip home. (god I miss home)
Final Trip Thoughts:
Well my trip to Virginia Beach Trip was great. After meeting a friend who have been with me 5 years its really nice to know that you can meet great friend over the internet. Tibia has found me two wonderful brothers. Robbie and John wil always be my brother. They have been with me always for wrong or worse we try to make it better.
The reason why I posted my experiences up was just to let you know that friends are everywhere. How you treat people and talk to people is how you are. Friends are easy to make. But finding a good friend is hard. Hurting people is easy as well.
This is also the reason why you haven’t seen me on tibia for the last week as much. My date with procto was rated B+ . Wasn’t a A because you come to the point you barely see any girls around. So makes me wonder if Procto was coming out the closet….hahaha
Well anyways, Make friends not enemy. People will always remember what we have done wrong to them. But People will never remember what we have done to improve things or what we have done to make things better. Its easy on the brain to remember all the bad things that happen to us. But its hard to remember things that people have done for us. Things that people done to you is always will be remember. Things that people have done for us is hard. So Every things we choose make it wisely . Enjoy! See you all in the game
