Trip to Wisconsin confirmed  
It took a while but I will be leaving for Madison, Wisconsin on the 15th, staying there until June 3rd. Unfortunately this means I'll miss the FA:U con in Jersey but I only had a passing interest about it anyways.

Back to the trip though, they got me staying in the Concourse Madison in what is called a 'Governors King Club Room' o.o;; Apparently one of the perks they told me about is a free, yes free, bar that is open at night >_> Though I really don't know what I'll be doing outside of exploring the area a bit. No rental car as the hotel shuttle will take me to the place everyday so I won't be able to drive to meet anyone in the area, if something even comes up. I'll probably bring monster hunter to keep me busy, perhaps bring my sketching stuff again to try to get back into that. I plan to make ample use of the swimming pool as well ^^

Speaking of cars, mine has been making some sort of grindy sound when I start to turn the wheel towards the right and you can kinda feel the vibrations from it >_>; So I'm going to have it looked at while I'm gone, dumb thing.

Family is doing alright since the tree fell on their house. They come to my place now and then to use the shower since everything is screwed up in theirs. They've had contractors take a look at repairing the upstairs areas but it could potentially take all summer for it all to be completed. Oh and apparently it was not a tornado now, just a 'microburst', lol. But that's apparently what they call tornadoes that haven't been on the ground long enough, technicality =p

I'll have to look up exactly where that hotel is, but having grown up in Madison, I know it really well and can recommend places to go and things to do. I'll look up where your hotel is after work and give you some ideas (if you want them that is, lol).

Yeah sure, I'm eating on the company's dime so don't hold back on the suggestions XD

Ohhhh free beer. and a pool! Sounds like you'll have a fun time.

I hope your car gets fixed! Hopefully it just needs some power steering fluid or something simple ^^)

I dunno, this noise doesn't sound simple XD; I guess everything evens out in life, you get a bonus your car breaks >_>

Keden and I live in Madison! You're staying about 10 minutes from us. We should plan something, especially if you'd like to get out of the hotel a bit. :)

Would certainly appreciate a couple of dragons showing me what to do in town, at least grab dinner or something a few times ^^
Azusisazusis on May 10th, 2011 02:30 pm (UTC)
Absolutely! I'll send you my number through LJ notes, and we can get in touch once you're here. I'm afraid I'll be sparse until Monday - I graduate on the 14th + I'll be entertaining family this weekend. :)

It's great to hear that you're family is doing alright. Those were some crazy microburstin' wind. lol

I'll take a guess and say that the CV Joint or the bearings are probably bad. At least that gives you an idea what is going on. ^^

Well, as for work, it seems only right that they treat dragons of highest respect by offering one of the best places to stay. :D Enjoy your time away whenever you can!

Hmm I'm an idiot when it comes to cars so I dunno how bad either of those things are XD

My Mustang had a similar problem with the steering. Get it fixed soon! If you're having the exact same problem I had, it means in the next couple of days, you're going to lose your steering altogether. Don't wait!
Nemmynemmy on May 12th, 2011 11:57 am (UTC)
Oh my, that would not be fun >.> I have an appointment to take it in on saturday now, best I could do!

You should be fine. Just be prepared. If your steering does go out, it becomes really, REALLY hard to turn the car. Hopefully it's an easy fix, though. :)
