Title: vacaville, fairfield, napa, and sacramento...I'm new to the state
Post by: anomaly on May 05, 2008, 11:56:50 PM
So, I just moved to Vacaville from Pennsylvania for work and personal reasons...AND I DONT KNOW ANYONE >_<

however..I'm looking for anyone whose willing to chat and or eventually hang out and watch anime...or talk anime...or really anything else in general..art..literature..cars..computers.

Gah, I dunno..I've been here for about a month..maybe I've made a few friends, but lets just say things are very different in CA than PA..and well..I'm looking for some awesome people that aren't going to always put me in very strange situations...I'll explain if you'd like to know.

Anyway. Feel free to reply...I'm going to be at the con..and it'd be great if I could at least know someone before I get there...::sigh:: I miss otakon....but I have a feeling that this con will be even better and I can't wait....its been a long time.

feel free to catch me on aim as codenameanomaly

^_^ see ya

Hey there! Moving sucks man, especially to another state, but ah well. You couldn't have landed in a more... er...weird(er?) place. But yeah, we're pretty frakkin' liberal here, lotta hippies and stuff but hey, it's a lovable (sorta) place. *puts on Ahnold accent*

 ;D lol I keep thinking how odd it is that the terminator is here..

Haha, hey I updated my profile with some info..my deviantart page etc..

but yea..seriously...I really like it here aside from the lack of friends...that'll change I think though, 6 years of technical support has kind of turned me into a people person...I currently work in napa for McAfee Hackersafe

but hey..is there anything to do out here other than go to bars?  I've getting bored...to so bored that I started to write a cyberpunk novel...and I'm no writer....I really can't wait for the con its going to be awesome...I can't wait to meet everyone..I'm really really really looking forward to it.

There's plenty PLENTY of places in the Bay Area if you know where you're going. Since you live in Vacaville... uhh, lessee. What kinda stuff are ya into? Huh, first place I'd suggest is the city centre of San Francisco. Hella typical and tourist-y, but it's a major taste of what's to offer. The environment changes between each city, too. Like...half an hour from Oakland is Pleasanton, and each is SO different it's almost mind boggling. I figure the best way to get a feel of a new area is just getting lost. XD Mind you, get lost with a GPS so you could at least get back home without burning too big of a hole in your wallet from gas prices. o_o

Edit ~ I realize that that post was rambly and didn't make much sense. Sorry. Lawl

however getting lost by yourself is no fun....I, like most people...am a bit shy...and it takes a bit for me to open up in public....maybe a few drinks :P

that being said...yea...I'm glad to be talking to people in cali...even if you guys/girls do tend to say hella quite often hehe... Us philly folk aren't exactly up on the lingo..

I'll be heading up to Davis this incoming weekend to go see some friends of mine. I live south of here, so about an hours drive from Vacaville. Most of the people that post here live in the san jose area, with everyone else scattered. Come join us for gatherings and stuff. There was a gathering planned for the speed racer movie this weekend, but it looks like it's not happening. Anyway, just aim or pm us and maybe we can get something going. Welcome to the bay area btw. I'm not a bar person, but I like to drink lol

Wow. Vacaville. I'm sorry.

I used to live up in Benicia (further down 680 from you) till about a year ago. I now live down in San Jose, but I can still tell you this; there is nothing to do up there.

:)

I was just in benicia the other night at about 4am...some random girl was ditched on her 25th birthday in walnut creek. :(...I gave her a ride home....I didn't realize that benicia was so far out of the way...ohwell..Im glad she got home safe and wasn't raped or anything...that being said...vacaville isn't all that bad...some little bars here and there, but davis seems to be the busier of the areas...I dunno..I work in napa, and napa is to expensive to live, so I'm kinda stuck...either way, its better than philly...and a crap load cheaper too...alright i need to sleep I have work at 8 and my drive is about an hour with traffic hahahaha

gnight ^_^

Davis is in the middle of nowhere...just like the rest of those places up there.

You could go to six flags or something.

OH EM GEE, SIX FLAGS TRIP!

San Jose and San Francisco ftw.

welcome to the boards.

if you could afford it, keep randomly posting here in the gatherings threads.

some of us are road warriors and dont mind driving for gatherings or hang outs. with the summer around the standard on our boards is:

Mall hangouts
Movie hangouts
Random house parties *cough*
Random events listed in the gatherings section

or of course you could go this thing called fanime in about 17 days...
I think its called Fanime?

See ya there.  :P

I love forum and CMS mods.

anywho...I'll be in San Jose this saturday for the staff meeting thingy...so, um to make this hour and a half drive even more worth while, not that it already isn't going to be awesome, but who wants to meet me somewhere and grab some sushi? Or Thai, or Vietnamese, or anything really...I know I'll be hungry and it'd be nice to hang out and see the sites...theres still allot I haven't seen...california is so beautiful....even the ghetto type areas have palm trees, well paved streets, uncracked side walks, and green mowed lawns.

I'm amazed...hehe, try going to philly or norristown......horrible :: shutters ::

Well, I'm online and will be for most of the night, so anyone and everyone, feel free to message me  ;D

OMG Vacaville has quite a number of bands. @.@ And they usually do local shows, I'd be jealous, but I like San Jose better. xD
Find them from Myspace, go to their concerts, make friends with the members of the band, talk to people when they're changing between bands... it'd be kickass. :0
I always have to wait for them to come to SJ. =.=

MY aunt and uncle have a house in tahoe NV, somewhat near heavenly valley where I enjoy snowboarding in winter and hiking in the summer.... ;D on another note, I got the keys to my perm apartment today..and well...there was something a miss....as in .. the thermostat...I asked them where it was and they tried tohelp me find it...low and behold, there isn't one....because half of the apartment is the main office....so..they have the thermostat...this could get really interesting, but for the price Im not going to complain...850 a month and they pay for all the utilities..so hell, let them have the therm, as long as it doesn't get to hot, I don't care....

Nice!  I usually go to Tahoe every other year, hehe... hmmm... Maybe we all need to make a gathering for Sacramento area and throw it at like Sunrise Mall in Sac.  Ideas, anyone?

Btw, thats going to be fun lacking a thermostat!  Hopefully you don't have psychos like my roommate who turned up the temp to like 95 degrees and with my room next to the heater that made my room a freaking 100+ degrees --  Talk about a sauna....or maybe my roommate wants me to shed teh pounds?

At what could possibly be me sounding like a hypocrite, don't knock it.

I was kidding when I said what I did and while we're definitely not SF or even Sac, we have our ups and our downs. 

And having lived in cities that are anywhere from 10,000 people to 10 million, I can tell you, it all gets boring after awhile.

There is a huge music scene here as well. All kinds and creeds. Don't know what rock you live/lived under while here but that is one thing we have in abundance.

well, just let me know when you'd wanna hang out, best after con though.  But I have no problem with long drives to hang out with friends ^_^ I've already done 9 hours to hang out for a weekend when I was back in PA...hehe hell I just love driving...actually i'm trying to plan a trip to the nearest track sometime soon.

I miss racing :(

Awesome! And with my job, I always have the weekends free, so I have no problem making the drive to hang out with people. I'm always the one going down to Berkeley to see my friends at college, so yeah, it'd be fun. I start my vacation this Friday, which I am SO stoked over. It will give me time to finish up with my cosplay before Fanime. Maybe I can catch ya there too : )

Modesto = Failtown.   Nothing to do there.
people either, A: cruise the mall, B: Try hangin out at Boomers or C: the Fat Cat in Downtown.  and thats pretty much it. the only good thing Ive seen come outta modesto is maybe x-fest.

At what could possibly be me sounding like a hypocrite, don't knock it.

I was kidding when I said what I did and while we're definitely not SF or even Sac, we have our ups and our downs. 

And having lived in cities that are anywhere from 10,000 people to 10 million, I can tell you, it all gets boring after awhile.

There is a huge music scene here as well. All kinds and creeds. Don't know what rock you live/lived under while here but that is one thing we have in abundance.
I always knock modesto, having living there for 10 years and also living in the west side of town off of Paradise so dont take it the wrong way =p
I still have plenty of friends there

  what do you drive and what type of racing do you do?  Auto-x? Drift? Track Style racing? there arent many places to go for racing, you should check the SCCA website for SOLO 2 autocross days or the Thunderhill website for grip/slip.
