In my last blog, i expressed how bummed i was when we learned that Mr goldfishflosser was leaving? Well, guess what? he's back! The day he left, we had exchanged a couple emails.Asked if he was having a great time in Santa Barbara,he was kind enough to update me his travels from Santa Barbara, said he met some really nice and cool people there and played volleyball all day at the beach.Last time i've heard from him was three days after he left Los Angeles, then i recieved an email from him stating that his trip to Sacramento was cancelled due  to the girls suddened illness, he was going to meet a Travbuddy up north  but planned changed, he went to San Francisco and met up with non Travbuddies, the girl who got ill hooked him up with her friends in SF which had worked out for him.

I had planned of going to Las Vegas for the holiday, fourth of July that is, i was going to attend a renewal wedding of my room mates parents and had promised  her that i would go.But the idea of having the place by my self for four days, any one who shares a place can relate to this,hehehe! So i didnt go, at first i felt bad, she was looking forward of me going to Vegas with them.Oh well, i flaked out okay? So i stayed home for three days, didnt do much actually.I think i must have cleaned the place a bit, did my laundry and rented a couple movies which i have yet to return.Ahh i just love it.
Saturday when i happened to message Ragnar to see how he was doing, he mentioned to me that he will not be going to Sacramento after all, he's staying in San Francisco for a day or two and planning of coming back to LA either Sunday or Monday the latest.
aww, cute shot of Ragnar and Jenn
I told him about my Vegas situation and not planning of going there after all, so if he comes to LA, that'd be great!He then message me that he already booked the ticket to LA for Sunday. He arrived sunday evening from LAX where i went and picked him up, he's got  a room reserved near in Santa Monica, i would've have offered my place but my room mate is coming home that late  evening with her sister from Seatle and her niece who were visiting as well.He told me not to worry about it he does not want to bother anyone.He checked in to his hotel then Tracy texted him saying that they were at Joy's place having some BBQ and drinking.That's when Ragnar and I decided to surprised them! I called Jenn and asked what she was up to, she said she maybe going to Joy's later and join them.
Joy,Alice and Chereese
I wasnt officially invited but i called Joy and said that i'm interested in joining them, i just need to get her address and i should be on my way! Our planned was so perfect! They had no idea that Ragnar is back and couldnt wait to see their reactions!hahaha!
We almost got lost but after calling Joy a few times, i finally figured out how to get to her place. Ragnar had another plan too, to video tape  their reactions! This is going to be so cool i just know it!
We got to Joy's house,I had his camera on and ready to shoot, we first entered at the back of Joy's house, it was very dark but you could hear the music from a far so i dont think they know we're there. I started video taping the scene and boy, it was classic! Joy and everyone was yelling and jumping, couldnt believe who they just saw!They immidiately hugged him and everyone was so delighted to see him! and oh wait! there's more.
Rob's welcome cake! so yummy!
.here comes Jenn,  we walked in inside the house and Jenn was screaming and hugging him.See what a big impact you made to this girls Ragnar?hahaha! I dont blame them.
They asked how and what and why but to make the story short, he just wants to spend another day or so with the coolest and the hottest crew of travbuddies before he gets back to the UK.Hehehe!
It was almost midnight when we decided to leave Joy's place, i dropped him of at his hotel and i headed home as well. The next day, i gave him a wake up call.I gave him enough time before i went and picked him up.I told him what our plans are  for the day and he says he is ready for the day.Yey!
