Journal Entry #155

October 15, 2018

07:44 PM

Hey guys! In my last Journal Entry (written on Saturday night), I told you about the SNL themed party that my boyfriend’s co-worker was having tonight– I said I was considering going but, actually, he was the one one who decided against it… (huuuge relief)!!

I also said something about going to work that night but, I decided against it because I was already hungry when it came time to go. I decided to go out to eat with boyfriend, instead. It was already pretty late when boyfriend’s shift ended so we only had a few options for food.


If you’ve been around here for awhile, you’ll probably recognize this restaurant. We’ve been to Thai Pepper quite a few times in the past. It’s easy for us to drive to and it’s open 24/7. Only one other couple was dining-in with us. Everyone else was ordering takeout!


For our first appetizer, we got the Beef Salad. It was a bit sweeter than usual and not in a nice way. We also didn’t like that the beef was warm… but, we were still able to clear the whole plate. πŸ˜‰


Our second appetizer were the deep-fried Chicken “Wings” with some kind of sticky sweet and sour fish sauce. I say “wings” with quotes around it because we were given ALL drummies! Boooo!


I ordered the Duck Curry with brown rice. It def could have used more duck pieces and the ones that were included could have used less fat. I love pineapple chunks in a curry though and the broth was so creamy and flavorful; I was able to forgive them for skimping out on the duck… I suppose.


If you hadn’t already guessed it, boyfriend ordered his favorite dish: Pad Woon Sen with shrimp, beef, and chicken. Yum yum yummy!!

We passed a Sonic Drive-In on the way home so we stopped and went through their dreadfully slow drive-thru for some sweet treats. I was feeling particularly naughty and ordered a mini-sized Butterfinger Blast!!


Ice cream is just worth all the stomachaches sometimes… mmmm..

I also ordered a Limeade Slush (hated it) and boyfriend got a Strawberry Slush with Nerds candies (loved it).

When we got home, I binge-watched UnREAL until it was time for bed.

Yesterday, we both woke up around noon. We were still feelin’ like going to the haunted houses so we started getting ready to go around 3 PM. We had to go out to eat, come back home to smoke a blunt, and we wanted to get there right when it opened at 6:30.


We ended up going to the Hibachi Supreme Buffet & Grill for dinner. We chose our noodles, veggies, and meats for the grill first thing this time. Last time we visited, we ended up getting too full before we were able to try it. It was alright… sort of flavorless and dry.

People who eat at buffets are so pushy and rude, it’s ridic but, hey… we love AYCE anything so we enjoyed ourselves as usual. Even if the food wasn’t that good either.


We went across the way to a Starbucks and we both ordered the Maple Pecan Frapp again. I love those little crunchies they put at the top!! ❀

When we got home, we smoked a blunt and it ended up being a bit past 6:30 PM when we left. I guess it was meant to be though because as we were walking in, a guy approached us, like “hey! hey! Are you guys going into the haunted houses?!” a little wary, we nodded our heads ‘yes’ and he handed us two complimentary tickets!! There are two houses so we only had to buy tickets for the other house instead of both like we had planned to!!


There are so many haunted houses to choose from here in Las Vegas– last year, we went to Circus Circus’ Fright Dome and had a serious ball. This year, we chose the Asylum & Hotel Fear which has been running for 20 years!! A horror flick was even filmed inside of The Hotel once.


When we arrived, the line for The Asylum was waaaay longer than the one for The Hotel so, we chose The Hotel first. I wanted to be scared right away! And I was…


The “monster” in this photo (above) ^ scared me SO good when we were just waiting in line. He shouted in my ear so closely and loudly out of nowhere!!


Before we went into the house, we were given some rules. One rule was to keep my hands on boyfriend’s shoulders at all times; I ended up holding onto his sides the whole time, though– to be closer, y’know?!


The beginning of The Hotel is thought out so well, you walk in and ring a silver desk bell JUST ONCE then, all of the lights go off… I almost pee’d myself then and there because I HATE the dark!!!

We both jumped when the “bellboy(woman)” showed up… welcoming us to our “stay” in The Hotel. Walking through was awesome– I felt boyfriend jump a few times here and there and I admit… I let out a scream once or twice, too!!!


The line to get into The Asylum was still extremely long when we ran out of The Hotel. We had to wait behind the most annoying freaking little girl in the world and I’m not even just being an asshole. Her parents yelled at her over and over to calm down but… she just wouldn’t! I was so glad that when we got to the front of the line, we were grouped with the 3 dudes behind us instead of that family.


I feel like The Asylum was less scary and I never really jumped… I did hate the whole squishy part we had to go through but, that’s the only part that evenΒ kind of scared me… there was also a super trippy flashing lights room with screaming women behind fences. It reminded me of the film Thirteen Ghosts. I definitely tried to get through that as fast as possible then ended up wishing it had been a bigger room.

**Okay um, I just spilled my coffee all over myself… but at least it wasn’t super hot. I’m back now though… no worries lol.**

On the way into The Asylum, there’s a green screen that you get to have your picture taken in front of. I was obviously lookin’ a hot mess (if you couldn’t tell from the above photos and the one below) but, I still wanted to get my photo taken lol. There were two different ones but, the second one was more than ugly so we just chose this one:


If you’re wondering if it’s cold in Vegas or something… IT IS!!! The extra layers were so needed.

After buying our little photo, we headed home. I put together my Recipe Reviews post and published it then, I vegged out on the couch finishing up the first season of UnREAL.

I got a bit hungry while watching TV so I made the “Nom Som” my dad sent me in the mail. It’s a Khmer thing… I don’t know what it would be called in english.


It’s pretty much a sticky rice burrito with marinated pork and cooked soybeans in it. Boyfriend went to Rivas Mexican Grill for a chicken burrito while I was heating it up, I asked him to get me some french fries and chicken tenders, too…

I wasn’t planning on eating so much of the Nom Som since it’s very hard to digest sticky rice but, I did because it was so dang yummy!


I admit I probably shouldn’t have ordered anything from Rivas at all but, when I’m hungry, my brain is bigger than my stomach. I was able to fit in half the french fries and two tenders before giving up.

I ended up getting through the first episode of UnREAL Season 2 (fuck Jeremy!!!), we headed into bed after that. I read a tiny bit of Fractured by Catherine McKenzie before falling asleep.

Today, we woke up at around noon again. I had a horrible stomachache since I ate the second half of my Butterfinger Blast last night… πŸ˜› We had to wait a bit for the pain to dull before we went grocery shopping and I still had to find our recipes for the week, too.

For some reason, Smith’s was out of everything when we got there. They didn’t even have any carts available… we had to find one abandoned in the parking lot. I noticed they had zero cartons of eggs… and just a LOT of missing shit?? Wonder what was going on there.

At least we were able to get everything we needed (and much more, too *eyeroll at myself*).

When we got home, I edited some unfinished drafts, drank coffee, made and ate a salad, while boyfriend cooked dinner. We watched The Good Place while we ate but, I think I’m going to quit that show for right now and pick it back up when the entire Season 3 is done. I hate watching episode by episode.

I started typing this and am drinking more coffee now. πŸ™‚ Hope you all have a wonderful week! We bought these limited edition Rocky Road Oreos and I’m more than likely about to go eat one… or two (if they’re good!).

  1. I love reading your journal entries because your life seems so much more interesting than mine. Ha! You’re so lucky to have a variety of different, unique restaurants. My town has mostly chain restaurants, which gets kind of boring

      1. We live in a college town so it’s kind of big but not city big. Indianapolis (the capitol) is like a 50 minute drive and that’s where you go if you want the city experience. I mean, we have some unique little places downtown here but they’re all always overrun by college kids and it’s just annoying lol

  2. Okay, so many comments for this post, lol! First off, what a relief that your boyfriend decided against the party! I would be so excited lol.
    I love that you guys got Sonic!! Joshua always gets something with Butterfinger too. He actually brought home milkshakes from ColdStone yesterday since I was super super stressed with my fresh week of class assignments lol and he got Butterfinger! That sucks about your stomachache though! Have you had a chance to see if taking a Lactaid pill might help? If you don’t like it, that’s totally fine, I’m just curious haha.
    I agree, people are so rude at buffets! It doesn’t make any sense lol.
    You & Alex look so cute in the haunted house pictures!! You look like you’re just having a blast with each other. The Hotel looked freaky just from the outside so I can’t even imagine going through it!
    It’s been so cold here too. We actually woke up to snow and it’s still been snowing all day! :O

    1. I know!! I was so happy when he declared that it would be too much work to get the costumes & go!! At least I wasn’t the one who said it. πŸ˜‰

      We love Sonic!! It was my first job, y’know?! LOL. Butterfinger in ice cream is sooo yummy!! If there’s an option for it; I’m doin’ it! Alex thinks it’s gross though. 😦 That was so sweet of Joshua to bring milkshakes home!! He always knows just the right treats to cheer you up!! ❀

      I've not tried the Lactaid pill but, I should have tried something. My stomach is still feeling funky today…

      I KNOW! Why are people that way at buffets? Usually they're so cheap & there's SO much food… they shove & push for specific dishes when they could simply just WAIT lol.

      Thank you!!! We had SO SO much fun at the haunted houses. πŸ˜€ The Hotel really was a good one!! We both were actually quite scared!!

      1. It is always so much easier when someone makes the call for you instead of having to be the “bad guy” lol. XD
        I love Sonic! Their flavors are amazing and their milkshakes are the perfect consistency. I just wish they were a bit cheaper, haha. I don’t know why he’d think Butterfinger is a gross flavor in things, it’s so good! I’m more of an Oreo person, but I’d still totally enjoy Butterfinger too. πŸ˜‰ Aww I know, he’s so sweet. When he knows I’m upset or just stressed with a hard day, he will start thinking of what he can bring home to give me a treat lol. This is why if I’m trying to lose any weight, it’s always a struggle hahaha.
        Aw well I hope if you end up trying the pill that it helps you, or at least minimizes the affect of the dairy on your stomach!
        Right?! Haha like, obviously you can go back at a buffet for whatever you want, there’s no need to push lol.
        The snow is gone today, but yeah it was snowing allll day yesterday!! I bet that means we will have a snowy winter this year since it seems kind of early haha.

        1. Hahaha it does make it so much better. πŸ˜€ & he doesn’t even like the Butterfingers the candy bar!! I don’t know how… but I sure love Oreo too. ❀ & hey, if your man keeps buying you the treats– maybe he's saying you don't need to lose the weight!! ❀ You deserve all the sweet treats!!

          I will let you know if I find that pill & if it works for me! & that's exactly my thoughts about the buffet… *shaking my head* LOL. Glad to hear the snow is gone for now! Hopefully it doesn't come back!!

  3. Love your journal blogs. I remember Circus Circus ‘ s Fright Night. I have to laugh when my friends from the west coast say “it’s cold ” and it’s 60 degrees or so. It was in the 40 ‘ s and 50 ‘ s here. Love this weather.

  4. Oh my gawwwd ! I’ve always wanted to do one of those haunted houses but that girl you got annoyed at… that would be me πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ freaking out and having an actual breakdown because I felt breathe on me. I LOVED the film Thirteen Ghosts what a throwback!
    Also you look super cute in the pictures ❀️

    1. No! She wasn’t acting scared. She was like back-sassing all the actors like, “I’m not scared of you, I’m gonna grab my gun right now” & telling all of us in line like, “don’t be afraid, there’s not even real places like this” she was ruining everything!!! I would have rather had someone crying from being scared!!

      Gosh, yeah Thirteen Ghosts gave me nightmares for years… I’ll never forget it!!

      Thank you so much, love!!! ❀


    1. So glad you enjoyed reading about our experience!! ❀ I was definitely scared & can be a bit of a wimp, too, but that's the fun part, isn't it?! πŸ˜€

      Definitely try the frapp before it goes out of season!! ❀


    1. It’s a li’l hole in the wall but it def has its own style, doesn’t it? I love butterfingers with ice cream, man… it’s a match made in heaven lol. ❀ The haunted houses were def a good time!!

    And that’s so cool that you went to a haunted house I don’t think I’d be able to go to one lol. And thankfully the family didn’t go with you guys I think that would have ruined it for you.

      ARE YOU TOO CHICKEN FOR A HAUNTED HOUSE?? *bawk bawk* c’mon I seen babies younger than Ciel there!! lol πŸ˜‰ just kidding, babe!! I get it. ❀ It is pretty scary being in the dark like that & walking through somewhere you've never been before!

      I was incredibly thankful the family didn't go in with us. The ticket taker lady was harassed by the girl so many times– I think she knew no one wanted to be with them because they were the only group that were sent in alone.

          1. Yeah we’ve splurged a bit this week and I’m hoping to splurge next weekend too. And then no more for the next month haha
            LOL that would be nice honestly I need to leave my house more often but this month I have been on the weekends and have spent time with my cousins for their kids’s birthday parties and today we had a bbq and it was nice to be with them for a while. Does you boyfriend like kids?! Lol. And sometimes they do, but because they live right across the street, ciel sometimes just walks right out the door haha
            And no he works the day (morning) shift so he’ll be home by 330 the latest when he stays for OT. If I get a job I may end up getting one at night which will suck lol.

              My boyfriend loves kids… he wants to have some of our own someday & thinks he will change my mind on having none. 😑
              I am giggling about Ciel walking out the door because they’re your neighbors!! So cute.
              & oh that’s a nice time for him to get home! You could get a job with the same schedule as his when Ciel is in Kindergarten!

              1. There’s just nowhere to go for me lol. My cousin has been going out with her girlfriends to the clubs but it’s not my kind of scene, lol. Or rather, not m kind of music. I did go to a gay club so many years ago and it was fun because they mostly played edm haha.
                Oh that’s right. We’ve talked about this before. Well…it’s okay that you don’t want kids. Not every woman HAS to or WANTS to be a mom, and that’s perfectly okay. ☺ take it from me, sometimes kids are butts, keep your pets lol.
                Yeah if I’m talking to my neighbor he’ll just decide he’s going home and he walks right out lol. It is funny but also not the safest way since Alex isn’t always outside to see him lol. I’m scared of baby snatchers even around here you never know lol.
                And yeah that’s what we plan on once ciel is in school I’ll be able to get the same shift and we’ll be home either before ciel gets out of school or as he’s getting home. It’ll be nice. And hopefully we will be able to save up some money so we can get our own place.

                1. Yeah, I hate going to the clubs, too because like my job is already like that enough for me. & they’re lame anyways… I hate being around dancing sweaty people. For drinking, I prefer a bar or a lounge. You’d love Vegas, they play EDM EVERYWHERE lol.

                  Yeah… my pets are butts, too! They stress me out & bully me for attention enough lol. IDK why in the world boyfriend wants kids but he really does love them… always pointing at them & laughing at them in public places UGH lol.

                  YEAH! I know what you mean about being scared of baby snatchers… I just watched this film… & have been watching so much shit like it since I was a kid, I have to believe those creepos are out there & no one is safe!!

                  That does sound nice! πŸ™‚ You’ll def find the right job at the right time. ❀

                  1. I like bars, the chill laid back ones LOL. But I haven’t been to one in ages. Hahah yeah, I bet! Tiesto used to play there almost every weekend I believe lol.
                    Hahaha awwwh I need another pet! Sophie likes my brother more 😦 I’m not mad, she technically belongs to him LOL
                    And I guess I get that. There are people who are really good with kids, that no matter how rowdy some of them are, they still love them. Take Ciel’s teacher for example, she’s so freaking good with kids I can learn a thing or two from her. BUT, they always say “you love all the kids until you have one or two of your own” LOL. No two kids are alike.
                    NO ONE is safe. I’ve been hearing lots of horror stories of people being followed in stores like Target all over Oregon. Scary. And I don’t remember WHERE I even heard this, but supposedly Portland is #1 in human trafficking so yeah, I’m scared af LOL

                    1. Yeah me too. I love the laid back, neighborhood bars. I hear Tiesto’s name a lot. I think he has a residency somewhere around here. I know Flux & Calvin Harris do, too.

                      Hahaha you should totally adopt a cat. They are a lot more snuggly and sweet than people think… mine are always on my lap before I can even sit all the way down anywhere haha.

                      That’s true. There really are some people who are good with all kids! I don’t believe I’m one of those people lol. πŸ˜‰

                      I had no idea that Portland would be #1 in human trafficking. I heard it’s going on everywhere. This kid I used to buy weed from in MN had went to prison for selling girls!!! I was like… omg I had been in his car plenty of times to get the weed and would’ve never expected it from him. So lucky I was never his target!!!


                    2. I’ll have to find the time to go to a bar, preferably not the sports bars though they have good food haha
                      Ah figures he does haha. Too bad I don’t like his music much anymore, his older stuff was better. Deep trance and all haha.
                      I would but Alex doesn’t like cats very much. Or at least he prefers a dog. And I think a dog would be nice because I have to take him out for walks and also I get a cute passenger lol.
                      Omg that’s so scary!!! I’m so glad nothing ever happened to you while you were with him!!

                    3. Lol sports bars are alright if there aren’t any important games going on!! & hey, my boyfriend hated cats before he met mine… he wouldn’t even let him move in at first but now we have 3 & the two we “adopted” together were mostly because of him. With the right cat, I think Alex would totally change his mind about them. πŸ™‚ but, I sooo wish my cats could come on car rides!!

                      I know! He was so nice!! I was shocked when I read it online!!


                    4. Alex doesn’t hate them exactly, his family had one back in mexico and he also has petted the neighbors cat whenever it comes around but I don’t think he’ll ever change his mind and I’m fine with that because I really do want a big dog. I grew up with big dogs and their loyalty was like no other. One of them would walk my brother and I to school and would wait for us right outside when we were out 😭😭😭😭 I’m so sad that I haven’t been able to go back there to see him but I’m sure he already passed away ugh.

  8. Hey girl! I have been MIA! I’m super excited I can binge read your blog though!

    I totally know what you mean about the relief when your s/o decides they don’t wanna go to something. Sometimes you just don’t feel up for the socializing and all that jazz, but don’t want to be the one to say no.

    Okay every time your boyfriend gets Pad Wood Sen it looks SO good. Need to try it with tofu.

    Lol- girl, you cannot go wrong with the butterfinger blast. LOVE sonic. I haven’t been to one in forever- but this is making me want some.

    OMG that maple pecan frapps crunchies look sooo darn tasty.

    The Asylum looks legit!! I haven’t been to one yet this year, but were obsessed with Haunted Houses growing up.

    I hate watching episode by episode too- I tend to forget what happens week to week sometimes haha, it’s bad. Thank goodness for Netflix and Hulu.

    How are the Oreos?! Those sound scrumptious!

      I was so happy when he said he didn't wanna go anymore lol. I feel bad always being the one to say "no" & if I'm being honest, I would've prob ended up backing out last minute anyways so it's better that he said something sooner lol.

      Oh my gosh, boyfriend loves that Pad Woon Sen dish. Every time we go to a new spot, he doesn't even look through the menu– he furiously flips to make sure they have it haha. I hope you like it when you try it. πŸ˜€

      I blame my PMS cravings… lol I ate ice cream way too much in the past weeks & I want another Maple Pecan frapp noooow lol.

      Me too, me tooo!! I have loved haunted houses since I was a kiddo!! ❀ I hope you get to go to one this year!!

      YES!! Exactly!! Whew!! Glad I'm not the only one who has a hard time watching episode by episode. We are spoiled by this streaming era, aren't we?!

      The Rocky Road Oreos were good & we def ate them all but I don't think I'd buy 'em again!

        I may come back at some point to ask you to remind me of the name- but I definitely am gonna try it! We are due for a date night soon.

        Haha wait I am eating ice cream as I type this. I am not the one to discourage you from just getting some more! You get that maple frap, guuurl! lol.

        we seriously are SO spoiled. Remember the days where we'd have to wait a whole week for everything? Or furiously run back into the room after commercial because there was no way to catch back up? Our kids will never know…

        Okay thanks for the review- gonna stick to just plain double stuffed then πŸ˜‰

          OH that reminds me!! I freakin’ bought those Chocolate Chloe Pops & they are so dang delicious!! They taste like chocolate covered bananas. ❀ MMM thanks so much for recommending those to us on your blog!!

          YESS!! I never even thought about how much I rewind the show when I'm watching it, too!! WOW, watching TV has evolved so much, hasn't it?!
