Welcome back! Glad to hear the wedding went well. Did they enjoy the music you were able to put together? Did you play "Cotton Eye Joe" from the Rednex????? I love that song...my sister-in-law had it played at there reception. It came on and shoes came off...not mine...I was in charge of video taping the event.

So, you do have a soapbox?!?!? I think 3guysandagal made a reference about borrowing it and I wasn't aware you even had one. :scared1:

Too bad you didn't run to Kroger last night to stock up, you could have gotten the 3 12pk cokes for $7 ($2.34/each). That would have taken care of everyone's thirst inexpensively.

Enough about that....SPEECH!!!!! SPEECH!!!!! http://i.slickdeals.net/images/smilies2/soap.gif

*dusting off soapbox from the great DISbate*

*stepping up (yep still tall) and clearing throat*

FIRST OF ALL... (sorry, I guess there is no need to yell) First of all I would like to thank the a-CAT-omey for such a prestigious honor. I will gladly and graciously share this award with Big Thunder Mountain as we strive to live up to the high standards of the Ducky Ambassador representing the fine state of Georgia here on the DIS and wherever the road takes us. Of course as I have learned from my "catching up," Big Thunder won't be driving us. Sorry to hear about your ride.

Secondly, as soon as I figure out how to put my award into my signature, I will proudly display it.

*stepping down and moving back behind my turntables*

Thanks again. Sorry I couldn't be here to spin music for the festivities... and I just got the Jonas Brothers remix to "When You Look Me In The Eyes" over the weekend too... http://www.smileyhut.com/music/dj.gif (http://www.smileyhut.com)

My sentiments exactly!

Although I still wonder.... If the remaining seven (who are tied for fourth ;) ) were eventually contacted and told that they're out of the running, were they also told who made the Top Three? (... Or does each person only know his/her personal status? I'm thinking that it would be safer to keep things as secretive as possible -- even within the inner sanctum of the Top 10.)

...Again, I'm sooo overthinking this! All of this waiting could make a person crazy! :crazy2: (Disney & Careerbuilder have mercy on us!)

I WAS sworn to secrecy when I made the top ten, but I have not been contacted by either sponsor since the end of the voting. In my own mind (very small - tight space) I will win a position in the top three, but none of the top ten have been notified yet as far as I know. I have not gotten any notification. Doo-Dah, Dav-odd, Dete-ta-dete, Deedee.

Nice to see you again Cody and Toby! I'm glad you liked Fleagle's pins. Thanks for the nice card and gifts by the way.....I thanked sis, but wasn't sure she's passed my gratitude on to you two yet. So, Thanks! You all are very kind!

Well, terribly sore today. Must remember to stretch before my next performance. :upsidedow

Making it an early night tonight......nothing personal folks, just way tired. I'll check in tomorrow morning! Nighty night...sleep tight!

Oh, could someone please check in on HMF? Tuck him in for me!

And furthermore, and more importantly, The sweet Miss Vickie and I are taking ten other people to the opening game of the Mariners tomorrow at 3:40 and if y'all keep me up again with wild and perfunctory partying, I will miss the game especially if I fall asleep and miss the Bainbridge ferry to Seattle. So please, keep it down, kids, and Mrs. Fleagle put that WW costume away! It makes me very nervous.

Does anyone know what "perfunctory" means? Wish I knew.

Don't know if you remember this, but you had me at your first food reference!

Here I thought I would be kicked out of the room for my ever-so-slightly-not-intended-to-be-inappropriate reference and I end up caputuring a heart?!

Great night then and on that note (not singing it, I promise)......have a great evening everyone!

Especially Vickie and David, who, I suspect, even if a food reference were not made, would have had me right from the start anyway!

I am flattered...really. If only it were true. I just really enjoy radio. I was there for an open invitation for listeners to join the MorningX for breakfast (which had to have been 3-4 years ago). They did that from time to time. George Lopez just happen to be a guest that morning...I brought my camera to take pics of my visit, but it came in handy for something else.

Honestly, why would I post a pic of me in a radio station if I really worked there and you were already suspiscious. :confused3

Financial mainly and also some entertainment placements as well...........oh, this is just fun for me to pass the time as we wait until you can announce one way or the other.......for what it is worth, I don't think you are the same person, I just have this sneaky feeling that you already knew one another previously.

Forgot to add, you asked how long, for too many years! Worked in NYC as a Swiss Banker then went on to place financial professionals. Branched out on my own and did some entertainment placements. Then became a mommy.

That is why the way CB is handling this is bothering me so much. They do this for a living and if they want people to use their service.....they need to prove that they will be there for you. You, as the potential employee, are all they have to offer their clients! If not for this job, for the next!

I didn't know who he was when he first popped on and started posting. I have spoken with him on the request line since then though. He's a good guy and I appreciate all of the support he has given me. In fact, I appreciate all of the support from the DIS. I'm not sure if I ever posted a "Thank You!"

Did/Do you have a video for this contest. I would love to see it, just so I know who I am talking to. I was going through some of the Dis'ers videos earlier today just to put faces with names and refresh my memory.

Envy is a very tricky thing Tripp. I don't begrudge you this opportunity at all! I have come in this thread almost every day since I joined (and many days before that lurking).

I am sure you have seen the progression of some of the posters from being really excited about their own entry to downright depressed about now being selected. Comparisons have been made and videos, rules and qualifications picked to shreds.

People have come in here and stayed. Some others that were Top 20 and didn't make it to Top 10 have gone on to other things.....I earned my Cat Proclamation though.....I am living in a state of Disney Denial as I am still hoping and praying that Disney made an oversight and the call is coming!

So, here it goes again, if I offended anyone by my suspicions regarding Tripp and BTM, I am truly sorry. Just my silly little inquiring mind going wacky as usual. Tripp, as I have said before, the support BTM has given you is remarkable.

I just an unnatural attachment to this competition and a teeny bit of knowledge of how headhunting works (p.s. and in my humble opinion, it is not this way!)........maybe I am simply wishing I were still in the competition to see if I had what it took to get the votes. I really wanted this....and I apparently am not over it yet. Sincere good luck to you though.

yeah, about the weapons in the show...i don't think that they're very sharp, but they could still injure some people. we have to check them in and out during rehearsal (naturally), and i'm assuming that the theatre has the proper paperwork for that and the flash paper that we're using in the show.

let's hope that they make the first row sign a waiver...

love,

p.s. i think i'm going to head to bed early tonight--it's been a LONG week!

...Returning to some earlier posts, because it truly is tough to keep up with this thread -- especially during action like last night's event:



Yeah, my family's experience during our last visit was somewhat similar. After riding Journey into Imagination, we tracked down Figment at his meet-and-greet station. We were the only people there. In fact, after I reviewed our photo and determined we could do better (the danger of digital technology! ;) ), we hopped behind the one couple that had just arrived and immediately tried again.

I guess I can understand phasing out experiences that don't receive as much traffic, but I feel like poor Figment wasn't really given a fair chance. The meet-and-greet area was sort of hidden. (I'm guessing that Disney fanatics, compulsive planners and die-hard Figment fans were the only folks who really knew to look for it! :sad2:)

Thanks for sharing your cute pictures. I noticed that you were wearing lime green! (Has anyone ever stopped you or flashed you the DISboards "signal"?)

Edited to Add: For those of you DISboards newbies, who just read that last lime-green comment, scratched your heads and exclaimed, "huh?!?":

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1410032


I specifically wore a lot of lime green that trip! But only ran into one other person ("Oceania") whom I hadn't met before nor have ever seen on here.

But for our May trip, I'll be all decked out again in LGMH on our stroller and my Baggalini and wearing home-made tie dye shirts, or lots of lime green.

I'm hoping to meet more Dissers this trip!

:grouphug: Don't know if you remember this, but you had me at your first food reference!

Here I thought I would be kicked out of the room for my ever-so-slightly-not-intended-to-be-inappropriate reference and I end up caputuring a heart?!

Great night then and on that note (not singing it, I promise)......have a great evening everyone!

Especially Vickie and David, who, I suspect, even if a food reference were not made, would have had me right from the start anyway!
Ann, you are so sweet and supportive to everyone. I think it's wonderful that all of you have each other to get through this. My mother in Hawaii, my girls, my sweet sweet husband and many others have put so much time into this because of our unending love and belief in my dad. I hope we all hear something soon.

I wanted to say again a huge thanks to Autopia for letting us know your status (or rather lack thereof). For those of us living this all through you, it's nice to have a little 'behind the scenes' knowledge. Please know all our good thoughts and hugs go out to you.

Many thanks for sharing with us. Not only is it great for our curious minds, it shows that you care about us and want to keep us in the loop, too (and no mind games!). These two CMO threads have devoted folks to this contest -- whether you are tied for 21, tied for 11 or tied for 4.

You are in good company with 7 others folks ... so I hope you are proud of your achievement!

POC: This is in no way to be a plea for the Top 3. We do not expect anything from you at this time. Just enjoy your few minutes of non-famous status...in mere days, you will become Famous!!

Hey Marshay and wotrubasgirl! I was just "lurking," noticed that both of your green dots are lit and thought I'd briefly log on to say a quick "hello."

And, about Mr. Autopia: I agree! It was very nice of him to give us an update! Thanks!! :flower3:

I WAS sworn to secrecy when I made the top ten, but I have not been contacted by either sponsor since the end of the voting. In my own mind (very small - tight space) I will win a position in the top three, but none of the top ten have been notified yet as far as I know. I have not gotten any notification. Doo-Dah, Dav-odd, Dete-ta-dete, Deedee.

I know it must be difficult for you to not know anything at this point. Even if you aren't chosen for one of the top 3, just remember you were still a part of the TOP 10.

('Still catching up...)

Yeah, it's a mean disease. But we were lucky in that my Mom hasn't had the violent thing happen. In fact, if anything she became even sweeter than she was before!

One of the things I did when we were on our trips was I bought tigger and eeyore ears for us, and made a little adjustment by adding Mickey ears on top. We wore those everywhere, and she was sooooo tickled by all the attention. Think about it...how many really older ladies wear ears all the time? She looked so cute! Everyone who saw her had to smile, and many fussed over her. Even un-disney unhappy looking men would comment "Nice ears!" and give her a big smile. She'd smile back, and shake her head so the eeyore ears would swing back and forth!

Here's the best picture of us where you can see the ears - we sure had fun!

I'm so sorry to hear about your mom's condition, Cat! (I sounds like you two have a very close relationship, and I'm glad that you both had the opportunity to take some special Disney vacations together!)

I love the story about your mom's Eeyore ears! ('Cute picture, too!)

just popped back on ... trying to finalize our upcoming trip and make sure Disney hasn't changed any of the hours, special events, etc.

Just found out that the slide at SAB at BCV will be closed while we are there -- bummer!! That's a fun slide!

I'm starting to be a little concerned about catotigger. I've noticed that she hasn't been on all night. I hope she's getting some much needed rest. After last night, I think we all needed some rest.

I know this is a very difficult time for those in the top 10. There are some dying to spill the beans and there are some that are suffering from dissapointment. For all of the top 10 that are still participating in this thread, may I suggest a group hug? :grouphug:

Good morning again everyone. Seems like I'm one of the early birds to check in each morning. :surfweb: I always take a minute while the bigger kids are eating breakfast and getting ready to go to school and my little guys are watching TV. I like to see what I missed from all you non eastern standard timers.

Sounds like you all had a good conversation last night. Nice to see that Tripp posted so much....sorry I missed it! But here's a belated "Hi Tripp!" :wave2:
For what it's worth, I do know that Tripp and BTW do NOT have the same mailing address....so if that helps clear up any Fleagle/Rhoda Dakota issues. ;)

Speaking of Fleagle, I know many of you are asking about him sometimes here, but a lot by PM, and I just wanted to fill you in a bit.

He says Hello to everyone....he's just had an enormous amount of stuff to do and things to handle. Soccer has started up again and the league he started is growing so there is a lot of paperwork that has to get done. Also, some personal things are taking up his time as well. There is also the small detail that he still feels like he let a lot of YOU down in addition to being disappointed for himself. He's over all that now, but he says he just doesn't seem "funny" right now. Anyway, he knows what is going on.....either by me giving him the play by play or by checking in himself. Anyway, to those of you who are concerned...don't be. He's fine. Just very busy and he has alot on his plate. After all, as quoted by Fleagle himself...."If the end result of this was that my children see that its okay to put yourself out there, then it will be a big win for me. I’ll lick my wounds a little and then reach for another star!"
So let's just say he's thinking about what "star" he wants to reach for next! :)

Ok guys- back to a work week....although I don't work on Mondays.......but I'll be checking in!

Of all the weekends to not be on here much - I sure picked a doozy! I have like 20 pages to catch up on today!

I will be sure to go back and read up on all the proclamations, the late night conversations, and the various speculations (that's a lot of "-tions" - I feel a song or a poem coming on!)...

But for now, please accept my sincere apologies (again!) for not being around as well as a hearty "GOOD MORNING!" I hope you all have a wonderful day!

So, here it goes again, if I offended anyone by my suspicions regarding Tripp and BTM, I am truly sorry. Just my silly little inquiring mind going wacky as usual. Tripp, as I have said before, the support BTM has given you is remarkable.

I just an unnatural attachment to this competition and a teeny bit of knowledge of how headhunting works (p.s. and in my humble opinion, it is not this way!)........maybe I am simply wishing I were still in the competition to see if I had what it took to get the votes. I really wanted this....and I apparently am not over it yet. Sincere good luck to you though.




Ann - - - has anyone ever told you that you apologize too much??!! Don't worry about it so much. We love you! I highly doubt anyone was offended and I'm willing to bet there are A LOT of people here who know exactly how you feel!

Keep smiling . . . you can't get rid of us that easily!

Very cool! I hope my DD will do this, just a little bit! At Disney she wasn't afraid of any of the characters, but she was afraid of the Easter Bunny just last week! I had to tell her that the Easter Bunny is a friend of Mickey Mouse...then she wasn't as afraid ... but still didn't want to touch EB!

Hello there Tripper John MD!

yeah, about the weapons in the show...i don't think that they're very sharp, but they could still injure some people. we have to check them in and out during rehearsal (naturally), and i'm assuming that the theatre has the proper paperwork for that and the flash paper that we're using in the show.

let's hope that they make the first row sign a waiver...

love,

As far as my dancing, well yes you did miss my performances. They were quite spectacular.....or maybe I should say they were quite a "spectacle". :laughing: I'm sure the performance was much more impressive live!

Perhaps an encore is in order? :scared1: Just kidding everyone...don't run and hide!

Financial mainly and also some entertainment placements as well...........oh, this is just fun for me to pass the time as we wait until you can announce one way or the other.......for what it is worth, I don't think you are the same person, I just have this sneaky feeling that you already knew one another previously.

I'd like to think I have known Tripp for many years, but that is just how I feel since I have been listening to him on air for that long. When people talk about themselves to some degree on air you kinda feel like you know them.

<cue DJ stalker music now> :lmao:

Seriously, I think the only time I met Tripp was about 2 years ago or so when he was doing a remote near my work. It involved free ice cream and I had my kids with me. Mmmmm....free ice cream. I was just another listener showing up for free stuff.

So, the only reason for my unwaivering support is because I have heard Tripp talk about his many annual Disney trips on-air over the years and I felt he deserved it. Not to mention I think it kinda stunk that he couldn't even say anything on-air about it. I think that working at a radio station put him at a significant disadvantage. He can't say anything on-air, he can't go to another radio station for an on-air interview about it because it would be a competing station and no local press was done. I was just trying to do what I could.

One person that really lucked out in the press department was Justin. Congrats to him for living somewhere that they cared about him and his story.

I know you are just killing time and I am certainly not offended...just hoped that you'd believe me and my efforts.

I know the pic I posted earlier was a tad old, so here is a more current one. I have since colored my hair...grew a beard and moustache, but as you can see I still look nothing like Tripp.

Envy is a very tricky thing Tripp. I don't begrudge you this opportunity at all! I have come in this thread almost every day since I joined (and many days before that lurking).

I am sure you have seen the progression of some of the posters from being really excited about their own entry to downright depressed about now being selected. Comparisons have been made and videos, rules and qualifications picked to shreds.

People have come in here and stayed. Some others that were Top 20 and didn't make it to Top 10 have gone on to other things.....I earned my Cat Proclamation though.....I am living in a state of Disney Denial as I am still hoping and praying that Disney made an oversight and the call is coming!

So, here it goes again, if I offended anyone by my suspicions regarding Tripp and BTM, I am truly sorry. Just my silly little inquiring mind going wacky as usual. Tripp, as I have said before, the support BTM has given you is remarkable.

Wow. You did not have to appologize. I don't think anyone was offended. I actually found it quite commical that you thought we (BTM and me) were one in the same. I like your spunkyness and persistence. It keeps everyone in check.

You're scaring me! :eek:

Just kidding....your support of Tripp is great! When Eric and I first saw his entry we figured it was OVER. How could you compete with a DJ? I even told my students about Tripp and how it would be near impossible to beat someone with access to so the masses! But I think you're right. And the more we thought about it and the more he posted here the more we liked him! In fact, I gave him quite a few votes while he was vacationing at Disney because I felt sorry for him....he wasn't able to sit at a computer and vote for himself over and over and over again. But then again, he WAS at Disney...so I didn't feel sorry for him for long! :upsidedow Still one of my favs though.

I know you are just killing time and I am certainly not offended...just hoped that you'd believe me and my efforts.

I know the pic I posted earlier was a tad old, so here is a more current one. I have since colored my hair...grew a beard and moustache, but as you can see I still look nothing like Tripp.

Dude,

You're scaring me! :eek:

Just kidding....your support of Tripp is great! When Eric and I first saw his entry we figured it was OVER. How could you compete with a DJ? I even told my students about Tripp and how it would be near impossible to beat someone with access to so the masses! But I think you're right. And the more we thought about it and the more he posted here the more we liked him! In fact, I gave him quite a few votes while he was vacationing at Disney because I felt sorry for him....he wasn't able to sit at a computer and vote for himself over and over and over again. But then again, he WAS at Disney...so I didn't feel sorry for him for long! :upsidedow Still one of my favs though.

:cheer2:

Thank you...I really appreciate it.

Hi Mrs. Fleagle!!! I am expecting many great gags and pranks tomorrow. Do you think we can talk Eric into reprising his role as Rhoda Dakota?popcorn::


I'll see what I can do.....I sure hope no one announces anything important tomorrow....I'm not sure if we'd be able to believe it or not. I'll call Rhoda and see if she's available for a cameo.

The nice thing too is that this is anonymous voting...so the Top 10 candidates can vote without worry of revealing the true results. :)

It is my first poll, but it was interesting that you had the option to choose to show who voted for what. Obviously that would not be right for this particular poll.

Speaking of Fleagle, I know many of you are asking about him sometimes here, but a lot by PM, and I just wanted to fill you in a bit.

He says Hello to everyone....he's just had an enormous amount of stuff to do and things to handle. Soccer has started up again and the league he started is growing so there is a lot of paperwork that has to get done. Also, some personal things are taking up his time as well.

... Anyway, to those of you who are concerned...don't be. He's fine. Just very busy and he has alot on his plate.

Tell Fleagle to hang in there. We're thinking about him, and we love it when he does check in!

There is also the small detail that he still feels like he let a lot of YOU down in addition to being disappointed for himself.

...Now that's just "crazy" talk!! ;) Seriously, his passion for the CMO position and foresight in plotting his next steps were clearly evident. We're just sad we never got the chance to see his plans in action! :sad2:

After all, as quoted by Fleagle himself...."If the end result of this was that my children see that its okay to put yourself out there, then it will be a big win for me. Iíll lick my wounds a little and then reach for another star!"
So let's just say he's thinking about what "star" he wants to reach for next! :)

:cheer2: :cheer2: :cheer2: :cheer2:

(We're rooting for you, Fleagle!)

:cheer2: :cheer2: :cheer2: :cheer2:

Wonder Woman, oops, I mean Mrs. Fleagle -- please let Fleagle know that we love him and being funny is not a requirement to come join us. :grouphug:

Prayers and pixie dust to you all as you're making these big decisions!

BTM,

Just another Fleagle Family Funny -

Whenever my 'crew' gets in the van before I back out of the garage I yell out, "KIDWELL KIDS ALL HERE?" and they all respond in unison "ALL CLEAR!" :car:
Hahaha... DH and I do the same type of thing... much like the courtesy tram from the parking lots. If we are backing out of somewhere and I can see that it is clear I will say to him "Driver we are clear" and then he will honk the horn twice. :rotfl:

Ok, I'm back - I had a feeling I shouldn't leave you guys alone.

3g&g - you should not try this at home!!! How many times have you heard that? Leave it to the professionals.

Are you okay? Maybe you need to take a stroll to the fridge? :)

OK, is it just me or is it really quite in here?

Since I'm all by myself, this will be my last post for tonight. I would like to make a suggestion for those who actually have a normal schedule. Since we are on page 210 of this thread we need to start thinking about a name for our next one. If we have enough pages left, maybe we can have a poll and vote on the new name.

:laughing: Hey, 3guysandagal: 'Looks like you had a lot of fun last night! :thumbsup2

Whatever we do, we probably want to keep a reference to "CMO" in the title, since that's what folks typically type in a search engine. (It can always be a parenthetical - to preserve the title's cleverness.)

So for example: "The Top Three Meet Dis-nee" (CMO Contest, Part Three)

Yes, I am glad to see that you are OK. I know the all night binge posting wore me out too. But I have to stay up all night anyway so at least I get a full days sleep.

I looked up the word "binge" just to make sure I was using the right word. There were 2 definitions that would have applied to the CMO POSTING PARTY OF 2008.

1 a: a drunken revel : David (aka wotruba-disney ) :drinking1
b: an unrestrained and often excessive indulgence Mrs. Fleagle and her dancing:dance3:
c: an act of excessive or compulsive consumption (as of food) Ann's wonderful refreshment's :banana:
2: a social gathering : PARTYparty:

I think all of the above definitions would have applied.


And, on that note (again not singing it though :rolleyes1 ), I am off to the Y to work off all of the cinnamon rolls I ate.......oh, and, there's that banana again....oh, no, don't get me started! ;)

p.s. at least my "font" looks thin! :rotfl:

I'd like to think I have known Tripp for many years, but that is just how I feel since I have been listening to him on air for that long. When people talk about themselves to some degree on air you kinda feel like you know them.

<cue DJ stalker music now> :lmao:

Seriously, I think the only time I met Tripp was about 2 years ago or so when he was doing a remote near my work. It involved free ice cream and I had my kids with me. Mmmmm....free ice cream. I was just another listener showing up for free stuff.

So, the only reason for my unwaivering support is because I have heard Tripp talk about his many annual Disney trips on-air over the years and I felt he deserved it. Not to mention I think it kinda stunk that he couldn't even say anything on-air about it. I think that working at a radio station put him at a significant disadvantage. He can't say anything on-air, he can't go to another radio station for an on-air interview about it because it would be a competing station and no local press was done. I was just trying to do what I could.

One person that really lucked out in the press department was Justin. Congrats to him for living somewhere that they cared about him and his story.

I know you are just killing time and I am certainly not offended...just hoped that you'd believe me and my efforts.

I know the pic I posted earlier was a tad old, so here is a more current one. I have since colored my hair...grew a beard and moustache, but as you can see I still look nothing like Tripp.

Well, now that I wrote it perhaps it's not quite as funny as I thought.....anyway....Monday is a driving day. In fact, as I drove around for 2 1/2 hours straight I thought about where I could have driven to. I think I may have made it to see you in DC Disgeeks!

I loved the story, Mrs. Fleagle!

Yep, you would have come close! (You likely would have made it to Marshay's neck of the woods -- Northern Virgnia!)

"Come on over!" ;)

Well, I'm off to run some errands! ...Maybe I should clock it and try to calculate how far I could actually get! ;)

On another, related note: My family passed the Yorktown and Williamsburg exits en route to my folks' place for Easter. I immediately thought of your family... :goodvibes It was really late on Good Friday.

I pulled a similar prank last year on the YouTube list by posting a comment to the group that the winners had been notified (a few days early). Little did I know that just two days later they did indeed notify the winners, days earlier than expected.

I quickly copped to the prank, as I didn't want anyone to suffer undue anxiety.

I like the suggestions for naming the new thread. Absolutely has to have the letters CMO in it so everyone can find it!

And, not to mention, I thought for sure I was a shoo-in as per David a mere few pages ago:




Ann - maybe everyone thinks you and I are THE SAME PERSON!

So when they say Cat is in the top 3, they really mean YOU! :hug:

Hi Amy! :flower3: I sign on for the first time since yesterday only to find out there was a new Top 3 in town......you were mentioned too!

Congratulations........really.......no really..........I mean it........no.......really I do......:sad1:

Vickie just told me I can't go to Florida in April. Something about changing the toilet paper in both bathrooms that month. You know what that means!!??!!

Rule substitution on account of because David Wotruba can't go to Florida- the magnificent heart-stealer AnnDisneyFan wins again!! At least a Big Hunk of Love (see Elvis Presley) will be there instead.

Way to go Ann! My heart is twitterpated thinking about you in Floryyduh.

Wow...me in the top 3? It must have been my fan kicks! ;) Plus I didn't even enter! I must be REALLY good!

Love, love, triple love LOSING to people who didn't enter!

Now I have lost the real contest, two virtual contests and a two more speculative announcements.

And, again, lost most of them to people who never entered to start with........I think I may be coming out of my Disney Denial finally! I am guessing I really didn't win?! :confused3

p.s. note to self....include fan kicks and free caramel coffee in my next entry! ;)

Hey AK47!
Kids are doing great now. Everyone is in good health right now. I'm doing a lot of painting work, which keeps me busy and sore from all the climbing.

My kids are geeked that we're getting to go back to WDW soon. They've wanted to eat a Kitchen Sink for the last two trips, but we didn't get to. We're gonna do it for sure this time. I've invited Orlando local CMO contestant Meggin to join us. If any Disers make CMO3 they are welcome to join too. Each night we do surveys of their favorite rides and attractions and discuss them before prayer time. We're hoping to catch some of the CMO stuff, if any of it is public. I'll have a video camera for all our dis friends.
Peace out! :cool2:
KTP

Good Evening All,
I just thought I'd pop in:wizard: and say hello.
Hey Kenny, How are your kids? Are they well yet? I've been thinking about them the last couple of days, knowing that you are going to WDW soon. If they are not well yet, I'm sure they will be in plenty of time.

I like the suggestions for naming the new thread. Absolutely has to have the letters CMO in it so everyone can find it!

I gotta go now. I'll check back later. Putting my little one down and then I can come and see what's up. My hubby is working on Cold Case tonight and won't be home until later.

My Disney Denial is BACK and BETTER THAN EVER!!!

I still have a chance, I mean since poor David can't go and all that stuff, and since he has appointed me and, you know, all that stuff, well, that makes ME a Top 10er right now!!!

My granddaughters are almost 10 and twelve and their nephew is 13. Vickie may not go on account of because her DD Karen is going into labor any minute! New baby's name is Annie but new baby's mom does not know, we haven't told her!!

Next week is pretty much the end of skiing in Western Washington. That's OK cause baseball is my life, although yesterday at the Mariner's game I missed the kickoff and there were no foul shots given!

Very funny!

Earlier, Mrs. Fleagle and BTM were trying to find a good kitty pic for my signature. As nice as they were, they were a little too nice for me.

Here are the photos of the cat who most closely resembles me in cat-o-tude!

Oh, and I did go to the Y today to work off the cinnamon rolls but proceeded to have a Chic-fil-a milk shake (cookies and cream if you are curious) (a mere 790 delicious calories) (if I am honest with myself, I was not at the Y long enough for THAT though). :rotfl:

1. That color MAY be enhanced on Cat - only her hairdresser knows for sure!

2. I didn't say that it was BAILEY - yes I typo'd the name of my own cat! Geez - it's lucky he can't spell either!

Sunday was a bit rainy here and we had a family movie. Everyone snuggled up to watch Daddy Day Camp...pillows, blankets, ahhhhh.....
We set up our own little concession stand with popcorn, soda, candy, etc.... Eric bought me my own bag of Caramel Cremes.....OMG...... and I ate the ENTIRE bag! (There are probably 30 or so of them in the bag!) I have no idea how many calories I consumed....don't even want to think about it. So, today I had a few carrots for lunch. Must watch the figure you know.....that Wonder Woman costume was getting tight!

My father recently kept eating the miniature hershey bars -- they have dark chocolate bags of them now -- anyway, he kept having them, and was shocked when I told him that they were 40 calories each.

OUCH!

It is soooooooooooooo easy to eat more than we metabolize. Trust me, I am a master at it!

:laughing: Hey, 3guysandagal: 'Looks like you had a lot of fun last night! :thumbsup2

Whatever we do, we probably want to keep a reference to "CMO" in the title, since that's what folks typically type in a search engine. (It can always be a parenthetical - to preserve the title's cleverness.)

So for example: "The Top Three Meet Dis-nee" (CMO Contest, Part Three)

Well, I see no one has made any other suggestions for a name for the new thread. I like DISgeeksfromDC's and 3g&g's suggestion. If no one else can come up with any other names or has no objections, I think the name for the new thread should be "The Top Three Meet Dis-nee" (CMO Contest, Part Three)

My DH ran the Goofy Marathon in January and decided he wants to run the DL half in September. There's a special medal for doing the WDW and DL races in the same year and he wants one. It's all about the bling! :wizard:

It's not going to be much of a "tour the parks" weekend, but any weekend at Disney is a good one.
