Some people were really dumb and didn’t want to play along. (Danny and Jon) It really killed the fun mood everyone was in. Maybe they were upset because they were Quenas?More people got involved in the balloon filling. Ai threw a balloon at Danny and had a direct hit on his bag. Let’s say he wasn’t a very good sport. We playfully attacked each other occasionally while we filled balloons (Including people who weren’t doing the labor) The same people (Pedro, My Linh, Ai, and I) doing the labor of filling the balloons kind of made me upset that there were such lazy asses. Ai didn’t mind though (which is something I really like about her)We planned to split the balloons, but stupid Jon initiated chaos and we all attacked each other with the balloons and buckets of water. The product of what seemed like hours of labor (300 or so balloons) disappeared in less than 5 minutes.After drying off, some people started lighting lamps (which individuals had much difficulty with), and some helped prepare dinner. Ai, Linda, and I also mixed some drinks consisting of ice, juice, some kind of sour thing, and “crystal water” AKA Captain something’s coconut rum with a hand blender. The only plug was in the bathrooms and the girl’s was cleaner so we made them in there instead of the boy’s.There were plenty of rounds of going back to the restroom to blend more. One of those rounds had drama. As we left the bathroom some guy’s daughter came in and he started screaming “DON’T FUCKING BRING GUYS DISGUISED AS GIRLS IN THE FUCKING BATHROOM TO WATCH MY FUCKING DAUGHTER” It was obviously an insult because I was wearing just shorts and obviously wasn’t trying to portray myself as a girl. It scared me shitless though and killed the mood for me. I hate getting screamed at, especially by strangers because you don’t know their capabilities(?). But who actually does enjoy getting screamed at..We had what was another yummy meal. Dinner was tacos and tostadas. The bugs had us for dinner though. It didn’t get to anyone too much though.We then had a bonfire going and tried to play games. Truth or Dare didn’t work even though booze was in all of our systems. It was just really uncomfortable time because some people were so tense. Then we tried to play the drinking games that My Linh bought from Spencer’s and that didn’t work either.After a while, we decided to have a midnight swim in the Blake (which obviously not allowed). We all walked to the Blake wearing glowing bracelets that My Linh put in our gift bags. I thought it was really nice seeing all 11 people participating. The sight of so many glowing things floating in the dark while we were walking was really cool too.

We got out of the car and it was SCORCHING hot! We waited in a parking lot of this.. Well, let me explain. The water mass was a lake, but there was sand and stuff like a beach. We’ll just call the Beach/Lake a… Blake?…Read More
We got out of the car and it was SCORCHING hot! We waited in a parking lot of this.. Well, let me explain. The water mass was a lake, but there was sand and stuff like a beach. We’ll just call the Beach/Lake a… Blake? Anyhow, The wait was well over ten minutes so I call Linda who stayed in the car. "Hey, there’s a LONG line at the check in, so it’ll be a while…"
We decided to walk to the Beach/Lake Blake thing to cool off. The water was SOOO clear and SOO beautiful. The Blake was practically empty. My Linh and I thought we should take some photos in the water together. Teee hee ^.^
Two hours later we call again "The line is too long for us to go back and pick you up, so you have to walk. Call us when you get in to the camp site." My Linh "WHAT THE FUC*!?!?! IT’S FUC*IN HOT!!!" We walk to check-in extremely thirsty and extremely hungry. It didn’t take very long for our clothes to dry because it was so hot.
We get past the check-in station without being questioned, call and get picked up by Joey in Joe’s Car. We get to the camp site… "WATER! WATER!! WATER!!"
Joe whips out his Japanese chef skills and makes yaki-soba (sp?) and fried rice. While everyone else set up tents and canopies. EVERYONE was STARVING. And the food disappeared rather quickly.
To ease the heat I mention the many water balloons we bought and ask for help to fill them. Pedro helped me fill the ghetto, self-popping 99 Cent Store water balloons. We’d put 30 in the bucket only to find 10 there. We changed out technique on filling the balloons and under filled them. Pedro and I threw a couple long range shots toward the camp site. It was fun to hear people scream and bitch, Ai and My Linh eventually came and helped out as well.
My Linh made really cool gift bags for everyone which was REALLY sweet of her. She also prepared a really cool way to split up the teams. We drew numbers from a small box. There were matching numbered paper bags. You’d either have pirate bag or the "Quena" (Queen) bag. The pirate bag had a pirate hat, an eye patch, and tattoos. The "Quena" bag had a crown and pearls.
