Nova and Saff Go to Krystal

Note: What you are about to read is 100% true. Nothing has been embellished or made-up. These are the facts...

Yesterday, the Mischief Makers took a Field Trip…to the ghetto. That’s right folks, we VOLUNTARILY went to Crack Town, USA. Why, you ask?? It’s all about the KRYSTALS baby!!!!!!

The only Krystal restaurant within a 50 mile radius of us is located in, let’s just say, an unsavory part of town. But when the Krystals are calling, we come running!!! And run we did, from the restaurant to the car. But that’s only part of the story. Let’s start at the beginning...

Nova and I left the office around 4:15 and journeyed to the Krystal. We finally reached our exit off the highway but instead of going east we went west. Whoops!! Oh and did I mention that I had a massive right-side headache the whole way in the car?? I was distraught – would my headache and touch of nausea affect my ability to enjoy the Krystals?? In the end, I believe that the Krystals had magical healing properties because on the way home, my headache was pretty much gone. Hooray for Krystals!!!

But back to our story. When we finally figured out that the restaurant was east of 95, drove down the road and somehow, we passed it!! So we had to turn around again and I spotted the red and white Krystal sign off in the distance!! “Oh I see it!!!” So after nearly going in the “Do Not Enter”, we had to drive around the back and we finally parked and we were ready to enjoy our dinner!! We went in and ordered our food (4 Krystals and fries each, with sodas). Nova waited for our food while I got the sodas and picked a seat near the window. While we were eating, Nova noticed a scuffle outside. So, while we were enjoying our food, we had some entertainment!! It seemed like there was a turf war going on. There was a man in an orange shirt, and a man in a white shirt. It seemed like orange shirt man was invading white shirt man’s territory, because it looked like white shirt man was selling something on the side of the road. So they were screaming at each other, and then they looked like they were about to start fist-fighting, but then a bus came along the road and blocked our view!!! (damn bus!!!). Once the bus finally moved, it looked like the fight was over, because orange shirt man slunk past the restaurant with his tail between his legs and white shirt man came into the Krystal and ordered some food. (I guess that was his reward for winning the turf war??).

Meanwhile, there were some other people in the restaurant and they ordered sacksful of Krystals. We saw them leave, but once they reached their car, it looked like there was a man harassing them. Maybe he was trying to get them to give him money?? We weren’t sure but we didn’t want to be harassed, that’s foshizzle!! Although, as we learned on our adventure in Miami, you can always out-crazy the crazies!! Anyways, the harasser man came into the restaurant, and we made a break for it while he was occupied. We ran out to the car and immediately locked the doors. Safe!!!!! And then we began our journey home.

The ride home was pretty uneventful, until we were at our exit waiting to turn onto the road. We saw 2 cars on the side of the road. Maybe they thought it would be a good place to park their car and have a picnic?? Who knows?? But also on the side of the road was a DOT pickup truck. He started backing his truck up the exit ramp. I guess he was trying to get back on the highway, but didn’t he know he could have just gone straight across the road and gotten back on the highway that way?? hmmmmmmm….why make life more difficult for yourself???

But I haven’t come to the best part yet. While Nova was taking me home, she spotted something on the side of the road. “What the hell is that??” she exclaimed. What was it, you ask?? Well it was a man dressed up in a chicken costume, yellow feathers and all, dancing and holding up a sign that said “Wings”. It was quite bizarre!!!!

So ends our adventure into Crack Town, USA. Apparently, the Mischief Makers pack quite a bit of fun into 2 hours, eh??!!!

The Fountain of Youth!

Hi again!
Saff and Nova headed over to the Fountain of Youth. (which was directly behind our hotel!)

It was nice walking over there.. all of the trees with the spanish moss were very pretty!

Before going in we stopped at the snack bar to get.. umm snacks!
We split some mini chicken sandwich thingies that were tasty and saff had a cotton candy push up (ice cream thingie).
Then we went in.. just in time for the shows!

We started at the actual Fountain of Youth.. which.. umm mkay. Well there was a little talk from a narrator.. and she said that everyone could drink the water from the fountain. (there were cups all over)
Apparently at one time this was a natural spring.. but has since been changed into a well. She said the water is tested all the time and is safe to drink. NO THANK YOU!
Maybe if it had been run through a britta filter or something then I might have taken a sip but no way am I drinking water out of a well in FLORIDA! (water in Florida is very sulfurish and gross) PASS!

Next we went into the room where you watch about the globe and the ships that went out exploring and found North America. Well when you go in there is just seats and a HUGE black curtain at the front. Now... for you parents out there let me give you some advise. TEACH YOUR RETARDED CHILDREN TO NOT TALK TO STRANGERS!!! If you don't this WILL happen:
Stupid little kid sits right next to Nova (mistake) and says "What's behind the curtain?"
Nova: "A GIANT Dragon!

Then the kid gets scared.. the mom (I'm sure) was quite irritated.. Nova and Saff giggled for 10 minutes!

Hey!!! It's hard making mischief all the time but someone has to do it .. right?

Next was the stars ummmm whats it called.. the planet... arium (snicker)
that was nice and interesting. It showed the constellations and told how the sea-men (snicker) used them to navigate :)
We wandered around the grounds some more, snapped some photos of the Peacocks (snicker) and did some shopping in the gift shop.
BTW the peacocks YELL REALLY LOUD.. at first it can be quite disturbing. lol

Saturday in St.Augustine!

Our day started out as a total CLUSTER! We didn't find any Dunken Donuts.. and we were hungries.. so we decided to hop on the trolly and head into the place where there were shops. Well holy poopies.. it was hard to find breakfast! Apparently all of the breakfast places went invisible!

Eventually Saff spotted a Spanish Bakery.. WTG SAFF! We went in and ordered 1 sausage roll each, 1 meat pie (to split) and 1 cinnamon roll (to split) this was all home made kind of stuff and was TASTY GOODNESS!!!

It was nice and cool out so we sat outside (snicker.. as if we had a choice! it was all outside!). The sausage roll was like a glorified hot dog wrapped in a flaky croissant.. it was really good tho. The meat pie.. was like a turnover with meat in it.. I was too afraid to ask what kind of meat. (there were quite a few squirrels wandering around). The meat pie was a little spicy but really yummie too. And then the cinnamon roll.. wowzers!! THAT WAS AWESOME! yummmmmm!

So with our bellies full and Nova's tape worm's mouth shut we started wandering around some.. Then we found a candy store! woot! I love candy!

We got some GIANT PIXI STIX! yummmm-o! Then we were waiting to get back on the trolly so we did some sword fighting with our pixi stix and Nova's went all limp (insert your own joke here).

So more trolly riding and we ended up at the San Sebastian Winery where we could go in on a self guided tour and have a wine tasting. That was fun. We watched a movie and sampled about 8 different wines. (no we didn't get drunk!) Saff's favorite the "Rosa complements a variety of foods and is also nice for just sipping on a warm afternoon. The light and refreshing style of this wine is balanced perfectly with a hint of sweetness. The delicate fruity character represents the finest of the Native Florida Muscadine grapes." (Saff says YUM!)
Nova's favorite the "Vintners Red is balanced to express intense fruit flavor derived from the Noble variety of the Native Muscadine grape. Served slightly chilled, this wine is a great complement to any pasta dish as well as for just sitting and relaxing." (Nova says TASTY GOODNESS!)

Upon leaving the winery tragedy struck when just as the trolly was pulling away Saff dripped her PIXIE STIX! noooooooooooooooooooooooo! (luckily it wasn't her camera) We were sad! There was a brief moment where we were going to jump off and rescue the pixi stix but we probably would have 1) gotten yelled at. and 2) killed ourselves.

So alas we must mourn the loss of the grape pixi stix. It served well in the sword battle where it had defeated Nova's limp pixi stix. We will not forget you valiant pixi stix!

So more trolly riding...
There was some old guy on the trolly that sneezed like 100 times in a row.. I though his head was going to pop right off.. but it didn't. Thank goodness cause we were in the row behind him and I'm sure we would have gotten brains on us. GROSS!

We saw the prisoner guy from the Old Jail tour out walking around.. HE ESCAPED! He was on his way to subway! lol (sometimes you just gotta have a foot long classic BMT! mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions and green peppers please!)

We kept going past some church with REALLY loud bells that went on FORRRRRR EEEEVVVERRRR! I was like .. what.. you trying to say sumptin? Personally I think that kind of bell ringing could drive a person a little crazy!

We hopped off the trolly at Ripleys then we decided we didn't want to go in. lol
Both of us had been there before .. and it cost 15 bucks! pfffftttt and it was VERY crowded so we passed. Then while waiting for the next trolly we were watching the crazies.. Ther was some RETARDED redneck woman who had her kid on a leash.. like a DOG. CRAZY!

Nova let out a really loud crazy person laugh and everyone turned and looked.. which made it soooo much more funny! Hey sometimes you just have to try to out crazy the crazies!!

Finally our trolly arrived and we headed back to our hotel to refresh before heading to the Fountain of Youth!

Friday Night - Ghosts and Gravestones Tour

Hi again!
Friday Night we went on the scary Ghosts and Gravestones tour! It started out NEXT to the Ripleys Believe it or Not museum (not at the museum like we thought).

We waited for a little bit and soon a big black open air bus pulled up and Saff and I took our seats at the back of the bus! (awww ya.. all back o da bus!)

This was a nice tour. Our narrator Crystal, told spooky stories as we went on a tour around St. Augustine. They were very interresting indeed. She was funny too! If anyone shouted things at the bus she would yell "NON BELIEVER" and everyone on the bus would yell 'BE DOOMED"!!! It was funny!

There were (of course) a few turds on the bus that were all like "I don't believe in this stuff. This is silly." etc.. well JERKS! Hey if you don't believe in ghosts.. ummm DON'T GO ON A GHOST TOUR RETARD! Why do you have to be all stupid and ruin the fun for others!?!!???

Anyway... so after the bus drives around some then we go to the OLD JAIL! Our guide, Crystal, takes us inside and says something like "whoops I forgot my flash light on the bus be right back" and she leaves. Then another guy comes in dressed in prison uniform, you know white with black stripes outfit. And he starts taking us around the jail telling stories like he was a prisoner that died there.

It was cute and fun.. at one point this guy was wiggling his fingers in Nova's face (can't remember why tho). Alls I can say is.. that guy is lucky he didn't get BIT! CHOOOOOMMMP!

So after the Old Jail tour was over we got back on the bus and headed back to where we started. It was fun.. we didn't see any ghosts or get creeped out. Saff got a couple pictures with orbs which was cool. Nova's camera wigged out again, like it did in NOLA on the ghost tour there. I'll plop some pics in soon.


Our Hotel in St. Augustine

Hi everyone!
We arrived in fantastic St. Augustine around 4pm and checked into our hotel. The Howard Johnson.
On a scale of 1 to 10 - 1 being the worst, 10 the best we would have to give the hotel a 3.
3 out of 10 points were awarded because of:
1. No Bugs
2. Location
3. Comfy Beds

However, this has to be the weirdest, most unclean, bizzare hotel ever. The bathroom was more like a high school gym locker room. The 2 chairs at the table in the hotel room were so filthy! It looked like a car mechanic had gotten all greasy and dirty and then rubbed his dirt all over the arms of the chairs.. GROSS!

There was a 2+ inch gap under the door to the outside. Luckily it was early spring so not too many bugs out.

And lets not forget .. The HOJO is a stop on the trolly tours. Well actually a TREE in the parking lot is a stop on the trolly tour. Yes a tree. Apparently it is a big f'in tree! lol They even named this tree "The Senator".. seriously I have no idea why.
But.. every 15 minutes we could hear a tour guide saying something like: "and on your right you will see a big f'in tree! blah blah blah" and he/she rings his trolly bell.. These tours start at 8am so NO SLEEPIN IN! (they didn't actually say "a big f'in tree" but after hearing that over and over it started to sound like that!)

Anyway.. our hotel was in a good location, the beds were good enough to sleep in and there were no bugs. So 3 out of 10. For the same price (or cheaper) we stayed in a NICE hotel in NOLA.
oh well.. what can you do right!

One highlight was on Saturday morning we were going to walk to the Dunken Doghnuts.. so Saff looked on her phone for the GPS and we started to leave. I saw a housekeeping lady and said. Dunken Doghnuts is to the right on the road right? And she says "YES"

Well after walking around we discovered that the Dunken Doghnuts had been boarded up some time ago and had long since closed. Apparently the cleaning lady didn't speak ENGLISH either.
She got an F-
More later on the redonkulus adventure to find something for breakfast!!

Tastes like Chicken - Renfest style

We decided only to do Tastes like Chicken and not its companion It's Happy Hour Somewhere because it is hard to fit many different drinks into 7 hours of mayhem.

So here is how we ended up!

Tastes Like Chicken - Renfest Style!
Nova had:
Turkey Leg
Ribbon Fries
A Pickle
Kettle corn
Prettzel (is that spelled right? w/e)
twizzlers (renfest ones that come in many flavors)

Saff had:
Ribbon Fries
Kettle Corn
twizzlers (renfest ones)
Prettzel (that looks funny w/e)

Earlier in the day Saff had a terrible headache.. They plague her often but.. have no fear!

"Saff had a magic pickle that cured her headache!!!!!!"


no comment

Welcome to RENFEST!!

Hi there everyone!
This past Saturday the Mischief Makers went to RENFEST!
What's Renfest you ask? Well it is a little fair that happens once a year for a few weekends where people dress up in old timie clothes and go around saying m'lord and m'lady and stuff like that!

Good Morrow! (wtf does that even mean!!??!!)
Anyway.... its loads of fun and we LOVE to go so here are the tales of the Mischief Makers at Renfest!

There are people dressed up as Kings and Queens, Knights, Jesters and... 1 TROLL!
DIE HORDE DIE!!!!! The Alliance will prevail!

Here Saff and Nova are distracting the troll while other members of the Alliance sneak up behind him!

Our day started out fantastic.. Nova went to Saff's house and snagged her then went over to Saff's parents house and picked up brother Jedi Knight Hpesoj and sister SammyStar. We all had conjured cinnamon rolls at Saff's parents house then some MT Dew in the car on the way to Renfest (there was a $3 off coupon on the can).

As we entered we went over to some shops where Saff bought an AWESOME Renfest outfit! Corset and all! It is lovely red and gold. How she can breathe in that thing I will never know! ~Saff edit: It was fine when I was standing but not so good when I sat down haha!!

A few booths down is just what Nova was looking for.. a new pair of devil horns and butterfly wings! YA THEY GO TOGETHER! pppfffftttt! DON'T JUDGE ME!

Then we waited for the Master of Awesomeness and ummmm... what's her code name... thinking.. thinking.. I forget.. anyway Master of Awesomness and Agent Awesome. As we waited for them to arrive, SammyStar (Saff's sister) and Nova shot bow and arrows and SammyStar got a bullseye!! So the REALLY CUTE guy Knighted SammyStar by the power of Greyskull in the name of Lady Gaga for Christina of Aguilera! (something like that)

Then we went to shoot crossbows! It was so fun.. I (Nova) plinked one of the targets but I didn't win anything.. nor did I get Knighted. lol

Then Hello Kitty, Agent Awesome and Master of Awesomness arrived and Master of Awesomeness made a B line to another booth to acquire the thing which he loves most in all the world.. where upon the crowd in the entire park heard him let out his war cry...


The Master of Awesomeness and Agent Awesome played some games too!

After wandering some more we went to watch a show.. the first show of the day was The Washing Well Wenches or something like that. They were freakin Heeeeeelarryous!
At one point they had some guy run out into a field.. put on some man's white underpants (snicker) and yell "In my man pants... I can do ANYTHING!" Soooooooo funny!! That was really funny!

We wandered around some more (Nova started taking off clothes cause it was FREAKIN HOT) and ate and watched the Moonie show. Many of our group (which had grown by two more... PoohBear and The Runner) enjoyed the Moonie show.. I (Nova) hated it.

Personally I think it sucked donkey balls. This guy whistled instead of talked and he was annoying and was mostly like a dumb juggler. /yawn He did have a funny line at the end when he spoke (asking for money) he kept saying "Cheese for Bumble Bees" sounds funny.. no idea what it means. I believe we have a pic of this guy too.

Then some of us stopped and watched the Wonderful show while others wandered and shopped. I thought this guy was sooo funny. The Master of Awesomeness and Agent Awesome didn't like him. Everything he did just went wrong. He had a whip he lit on fire and was supposed to crack the whip so hard it put the fire out.. but the whip broke and was on fire.. and ... well ya. All of his other tricks just didnt go well.. most of them he messed up. Which is why I thought it was so funny.. I'm sure the guy was about to poop himself but I laughed and laughed. Hey I think we have a pic of him too!! And a quote from Mr Wonderful "It's my own special brand of sickness" lol

As the day was winding down we wandered a bit more and ended up in the Adults only tent to watch Iris and Rose. Ummm ya two ladies singing about guys screwing farm animals and a Moose. I think they are obsessed with farm animals.

Last show of the day.. Christoff the Insult Comic. This guy.. you pay him to insult your friend. Luckily no one in our group was into that sort of thing.. probably cause there was a lake right there and they were afraid the others would drown them if they did. His jokes were mildly dirty, mildly funny.. of course they had NOTHING to do with the actual person who got picked.. they could be about anyone.. so ... I give it an eeeeehhhhh. (hand wobble) He did sing a song "When I T-bagged your mothers" that got a chuckle.

All in all we had fun.. it was unexpectadly hot and sunny so I think we all got sunburn but that is the price you gotta pay to CAUSE MISCHIEF! Enjoy some more pics!

Oh my...

Hello from Sunny South Florida!

A few weekends ago our friend Jaime invited us to go see a friend of hers in a band up in West Palm.

We went up and then stopped at the Ale House for dinner. I ordered a rum runner to have with my dinner. ummm ya.. it tasted EXACTLY like Cherry Nyquil.. I mean exactly. I'm pretty sure they just watered down some Nyquil! It was GROSS and I didn't drink it.

So we went over to this bar to see the band. The bar was small with a little stage along one wall. It is a nice home town kind of place. Full of rough type people. Not all fu fu and dingbat girls.

There was another band that went on before Jaime's friends. It was screaming death metal.. entertaining.. There were some people who were REALLY into it. lol

We decided to move across the bar to where the pool tables are.. and so Jaime and Saff grabbed some chairs to take over and then it happened.. THE BAR NAZI stopped them in their tracks! NO! YOU CANNOT MOVE THE CHAIRS!!! zomgwtf AIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE /wrist!

It was pretty re-donk-u-lous! But w/e we ended up with chairs (the most unconfortable ever) and over by the pool tables. The BAR NAZI was on a roll tho.. he really enjoyed yelling at people for anything.. ARE YOU BREATHING!!???!!! WHO SAID YOU COULD BREATHE!?!!!

Then her friends band went up.. For rage screaming death metal I think they are pretty good! Again they had some 'serious fans' which is always entertaining to watch! All in all that was fun stuff!

Here are the interesting people of the night:
Doorman - Looked just like Edward James Olmos (I mean it might have actually been him!)

Out of place gangster guy - wore all black, had a smooooove hat, a black vest, sat at the bar and faced away from the crowd. I'm pretty sure he has a violin case with a gun in it!

Bar Fly - (of course there is one) Old lady, in black tight clothes (pleather - not leather), lace up boots with lots of buckles or rivets or whatever they are, fancy black patterened leggings, cigarette in one hand beer in the other.

Super fan - ok a super fan of death metal = bald, but with a beard, wife beater t shirt or t shirt with sleeves cut off, long baggy shorts, doc martin boots (or whatever the craze is these days), some chains. He bangs his head and STANDS DIRECTLY IN FRONT of the band! lolol I mean it is a small place... you don't gotta be that close dude!

NUTBALL Super Fan - oh this guy was priceless! Dressed in all black, wife beater t shirt, doing the 'crazy mosh pit dance' all over the place. Except when he had to take a moment to tie his shoe! Was so funny to watch!

After there we all went back to Jaime's house and had some tequila lol. Except Saff who was the designated driver! GOOOOOO SAFF! Then we all atempted to go to another bar that was open all night. Saff and I got lost, but Jaime called us and we found our way. 2 other guys didn't make it.

They got arrested for drunk driving :( that is never a good thing to do!
Mischief Makers say NO to drunk driving!

Drunk walking, Drunk falling, Drunk laughing til you puke or pee your pants - YES!

Saff did get so sing Karaokee (I can't spell it) which was HILARIOUS. She sang One Step Closer by Linkin Park! AWESOME!

Then we made another friend. Jake was said he is a 'good guy who just broke up with his girlfriend' /yawn
He needed help writing stuff on his card to sing. So we helped him. Then he got up and sang ICE ICE BABY lolol by Vanilla Ice! lol
Not long after we all went our separate ways and lived to tell the tale!!

This weekend we are going to Renfest!! whooo hoooo!

3. Ride 3 rides (hey at the carnival, that is SCARY BUSINESS) ~~In Progress~~ We went on 2 rides - MegaDrop (you go about 2 miles up in the air and stay there for an indeterminate amount of time, then you fall very very quickly amost to your death - we nearly DIED!!!) and the Ferris Wheel (the carnie there made a bad joke and Saff laughed like a robot "hahahaha" and he was picking on her when we exited the ride!!)

1. Eat a deep-fried Twinkie (without having a heart attack or stroke) ~~ACHIEVED!!~~ and they were scrumdiddlyumptious!!

2. Avoid Getting Attacked by the Bees (the bulk candy tent was swarming with bees. We still navigated our way through the maze of candy to stock up on provisions and narrowly escaped getting stung by bees) ~~ACHIEVED!!~~

Overall, a very fun and successful day at the fair was had by all. Enjoy our pics :)
