Also, there's currently 15 members and 44 guests on NCIS Special Ops. And people still posting about how they hope it was all a dream despite USA Today's claim that the person whose character was killed wanted off the show.* And like Mark Harmon said, they're all so tired they were hoping it was them.

Anyway, I promised an after-prom recap a while ago, didn't I? Well, first things first, I somehow got these bruises on my arms, don't quite remember how. Anyway!
I didn't play much games since most of them cost money. Tom and Zach played shooting games and Casey and Nets played driving games and Joe played DDR for a good two hours, though, as I wandered around, bored. But before that!
First real activity we did was ice skating. I started out wobbly, afraid I was going to fall flat on my ass in front of everyone, and was surprised to find that hey - I can actually skate! So I went into my hockey-player crouch developed from years of rollerblading (and, y'know, that one year of roller hockey) and started speed-skating my ass around all of my friends. Which, of course, set me off on coughing fits.
By the end of our ice skating period, everyone had fallen at least once (in order of best skater to worst, it was me, Nets, Joe, Zach, and Tom. Casey wasn't there yet). Zach and Joe both fell from loss of balance, pin-wheeling arms and all. Nets dared Tom to race and they started off, and Tom fell flat on his face and slid about four feet. I decided Nets and I should try skating while holding hands ('cause you always see that in the movies), so I stuck my hand out and she pulled back and fell over. And me? How did I fall? Tom had stopped and was leaning over one of those breaks in the glass for the place where the hockey players sit during a game, right? So I decide to stop next to him! But I'm going full speed. I slam into the wall, my feet keep going the way they were going, and I slide onto my ass. I love it.
Anyway, we also played laser tag, which was fun, because I was actually around the top ten. I really liked the version of laser tag they had there.
We also went on one of those spinny rides - you know the ones, three two-seater cars on each arm, three arms, spins both the arms and the cars around, then does it backwards? Yeah. - First time, only me and Zach went, and we would have sat next to each other if more people had been in the line! Damn. Second time, me, Zach, Tom, Nets, and Casey went, and Zach sat with Casey, which pissed me off.
They gave us 2000$ in "Buff Bucks" at the door, and I wound up spending them on the following items: Two Neopets plushies (a Wocky I named Alvarez, and a... Aisha? I named Omar), two candy bars (Twix and Take Five, one of those glow-in-the-dark "finger missle" Nerf things, and a little plastic green lizard. Would have been more, but prices sky-rocketed during the last two hours.
