Anyone here ever heard of or been to Mouse Meets? It is not a DIS sponsored thing.

I was on the chat last night for the monthly live show of WDW Today and won an auction and got tickets to the Mouse Meets (and a bunch of other cool stuff)! :woohoo:

So that is a fun thing for my Monday!

Now I just have to figure out how I am going to get there! :lmao:

Do you have a 4 day work week this week for the 4th of July? I hope so, and if you do that is definately worth waking up to. :)

Don't know if I have a four day work week or not. Depends on how the boss feels. Last year we only worked a day and a half the week of the 4th of July.
Here's hoping your boss is in the same mood as last year!

I heard and saw the whole thing Mary. First off, congratulations and you are soooo generous! It was really heart-warming what you did.
I've never been to the meet in Camp Hill, PA. I've only witnessed it from afar and heard what others have said about it. If you go, I'm sure you will have a fantastic time. The meet is more of a 1 day convention with Friday night and Sunday being optional days for other activities (other ticketed events). There will be break-out sessions with guest speakers who will offer you advice on traveling to Disney, what to do in the parks, etc. Tables are setup in the main hall where you can meet sponsors, special guests, and other podcasters. Prizes are awarded throughout the day along with several Children's activities. The most important element of the meet is just getting to know other Disney enthusiasts like you and making new friends. :wizard:

I was this close today to getting a Blackberry. But, I would have to pay $500, and I just can't justify that when we can get them fom $60 and both get one come February. Maybe I'll look for a used one.

We went an O's game last night - weather was perfect, seats were insanely good, no rain ;) (no Mary Poppins either) but the husband and wife in front of us were taunting the team like maybe their heckling would make them play better? Or maybe the O's would take their advice on how to play - like they were just waiting for that one fan to come in and offer that outstanding piece of advice for the :idea: moment and then they could play better! Good grief! I kept the beer guy busy; I really like that guy.


I HATE when people do that! DH used to have season tickets and the guy right behind us did the same thing. It got to the point where you hated to go bcs that was all you would hear.

Did you get any bbq to go w/ the beer?

It isn't just Baltimore - we did a "family" trip to a San Francisco Giants game - the only time I have ever seen ushers wearing insulated parkas in July. The only thing the fellow sitting behind us ever said was to scream, "you s**k", to the pitcher. But hey, no bottles were flying around in the stands so we just walked around the stadium for a while then left. Who really wants to see the Giants play the Dodgers anyway? ;)

Thank you for the info! I had no idea you were on there. I really need to learn user names so that I can recognize folks that I "know"...The only name I recognized was Minnie Lor (Lorie).

It was overwhelming to listen and chat at the same time. And bid. :lmao: It is a very worthy cause and is a good use of my money I have saved up thinking I would do Team in Training this year...since that is not going to happen, it only made sense to donate it elsewhere.

Now I just need to see if I can get an extra day off of work.

I have had the same problem at Patriots games. It's just no fun. On a more fun note I was given 2 EMC Club tickets to Fenway by a grateful client. It was nice to see how the other half lives. All I can say is WOW. I know what I would do if I won the lottery.

Things were going great yesterday. Walk down by the lake shore, Taste of Chicago, fabulous dinner and off to Mary Poppins. Chance of rain but we never got caught in it.

The show started, it was wonderful! We had excellent seats, couldn't have asked for any better. All of a sudden a couple microphones weren't turned on at the right time and we saw a stagehand come into view on the right side. The loud speaker in the theater then came on and a voice said due to some technical issues they were going to bring down the curtain to fix things. 15 minutes or so later we got an update that they were have some automation issues and were still working on it. About 15 minutes more, the theater lights came on completely and the stage manager and Mary Poppins came out on the stage. He told us this was the part of the job that he didn't enjoy and indicated the show was canceled. We made our way out of the theater and guess what? It started to rain!

Oh well, all in all it was a great day. I wish we could have seen the show, it will only be here two more weeks though.

Now this morning it appears as though my cell phone is dead. Don't know why it would be but it will be a long day if it is.

:sad2::sad2: Sorry to hear all that, Tracy!! Hope the rest of your trip was great! :goodvibes

ACCCK! Tracy, I am so sorry that Mary Poppins was canceled. We are scheduled to see Mary Poppins this evening! :eek: I pray they have everything worked out!

I went to Mouse Meets two years ago - it was fun but I think it would have been more fun if I had known more people before I went. Actually, Aaron described it perfectly.
I HATE when people do that! DH used to have season tickets and the guy right behind us did the same thing. It got to the point where you hated to go bcs that was all you would hear.

Heck yeah! Our first stop is always Boogs! Quick, fun story that you'll be able to relate to: About three years ago, we were at the O's game and were in line to get Boogs. There are two lines and both of them were looooong. In the middle was a guy in an O's uniform with a notepad and people were in a smaller line so I suggested to my dad that we should get out of the line we were in and place our order with the guy in the middle. :headache: The guy in the middle line with the uniform was Boog Powell, former first baseman for the O's and he happened to be signing autographs that day. Thankfully I didn't get far enough to embarrass myself - when we got close enough we saw what was going on and stayed put. :rotfl:

I would LOVE to play a game of Uno with anyone from FB, I either haven't figured out how to do it yet, or my friends aren't in the lobby the same time I am :confused3

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Jason and I will have a busy weekend/week. This time always is!
We are heading to the Kohl's Children's Museum in the AM for a special thing about bugs. Then heading over to a restaurant to meet with a friend, hanging out for a while. Maybe going to Taste of Chicago tomorrow night and Navy Pier to see Elevation (a U2 tribute band) they are really good.

On Sunday we will be going to Taste of Chicago with Aaron and the MIL. We have to spend the 300 tickets! Mind you most of the things we get are 3 tickets and they are equivalent in size to the items you would find at food and wine festival! 100 taste portions! I can usually eat 10 and I am stuffed to the gills! Can anyone say :sick:.
In the evening we are going to head over to Long Grove Strawberry Festival. It is kind of tradition now, Aaron has been every year since he was born. We get his picture taken in the same spot every year :).

Let me know when you're playing Uno and I will meet you in the lobby.

How was Strawberry Fest? I was bummed that we missed it this year. I missed Chocolate Fest this year too. I will not miss Apple Fest... yummm.... the Apple donuts are worth the 30 minutes you have to wait in line.

Good evening everyone. I had a great night with my friends tonight. I was thinking of you Dodie and Todd. We went to a martini bar, and my friend ordered a dirty martini. No one has ever told her how yucky they are!

Alex, my oldest kid, came home from a weekend in Springfield (where he goes to school) and told me he went to a martini bar this weekend. He tried a Dirty Martini and HATED it. :)

happy monday folks! :wave2: late start to these boards but by the time you read this your work day's almost over :thumbsup2

I'm smoking some pork butts (also known as Boston butts) for pulled pork sandwiches.
http://www.cfs.purdue.edu/Class/F&N202/Pork_slides/pork_cuts.jpg

Burgers, dogs, and brauts, for those who prefer that.

I just bought 20 racks of spareribs on sale for $1 a pound. There being frozen until the annual Shaw family Oink Cackle and Moo Barbecue in August. Basically we invite everyone we know to stop by have a drink and eat barbecue. It may be my favorite day of the year.

Sounds like u guys will have leftovers - I'll be right over! :teleport: :rotfl: :rotfl:

Morning all, another week has begun but at least we're getting near July. It's a scorcher here today :banana:

Great to hear y'all finally getting some :sunny: I'm sure you'll need some :drinking1 to cool down. On that note, possibly u can help me out...

My bro sent me some great Disney stuff for my bday this year and I thought I should send him something he loves too for his bday, instead of the usual practical (but nice!) stuff I think he needs. He loves English brew, as he finished his schooling in the UK. I found a great place that will ship beer (bevmo.com and as I live to emulate PW - in the interest of full disclosure, I have no financial relationship...:rotfl2: :rotfl2:

Bevmo had lots of variety but as I don't drink beer at all, I had no idea what types to choose for him. So what are the best/most popular microbrews that are made in big enuf batches to be exported? I only know he likes pales and darks :lmao: :lmao:

Mornin. Mondays suck. I'm trying to look for the bright side and the only one I could find is that I woke up. Anyone got anything else?

:hug: and now go and get a fiendishly wicked dessert and don't share! :cake:

it's nice to be able to work in the creature confines of my house. of course - I will sneak in a little :happytv:

and I'm sure a little :surfweb: :disrocks:

I have had the same problem at Patriots games. It's just no fun.

Try being a Pats fan in Bills turf :scared1: :sad2:

Morning All! :wave:

Lots happening this week. I'm doing some last minute things in our yard (Can I just sell my yard and live in my house), work for some reason is crazy, and I'm trying to prepare for a weekend get-a-way that we are highly anticipating!...:moped:

90 degrees in Vegas at 4:30AM! :scared1: It's a dry heat, right?! :rolleyes:
That's crazy! I'm going to guess most Vegas area residents, and tourists for that matter, don't come out of their homes or resorts unless it's absolutely necessary in the summer. 115 degrees in Vegas is probably like a winter storm warning in the midwest. Stay indoors!

Man, I gotta get out to Chicago - you all have some AWESOME food fests out there!!!

You should come!!





The apple/choc/strawberry fests are in a little town called Long Grove.

Shanan ~ Apple Fest is October 2, 3 and 4. We usually go on Sunday. The bees are HORRIBLE but the apple donuts are AWESOME. We are going to go to Greek Days August 1 or 2.

Group therapy, sounds likes something I'd be into! :love: I won't even charge.

My ex-boyfriend lives in Vegas. He is a plumber and works on new construction... he starts work at 6:00 a.m. and works until 11:00 a.m.... then he is off for a while and goes back to work at 3:00 p.m. and works until 6:00 p.m. so he is not working during the hottest time of the day. Genius!

Great to hear y'all finally getting some :sunny: I'm sure you'll need some :drinking1 to cool down. On that note, possibly u can help me out...

My bro sent me some great Disney stuff for my bday this year and I thought I should send him something he loves too for his bday, instead of the usual practical (but nice!) stuff I think he needs. He loves English brew, as he finished his schooling in the UK. I found a great place that will ship beer (bevmo.com and as I live to emulate PW - in the interest of full disclosure, I have no financial relationship...:rotfl2: :rotfl2:

Bevmo had lots of variety but as I don't drink beer at all, I had no idea what types to choose for him. So what are the best/most popular microbrews that are made in big enuf batches to be exported? I only know he likes pales and darks :lmao: :lmao:

cheers,
:flower3:

Hi ya,

I will ask DH what he thinks - I'm not the biggest fan of beer. I am sure he will know what is good (as long as he doesn't start wanting to brew his own :rolleyes:) Great idea for a pressie, why is it men are so hard to get stuff for :confused3

I never know what to get for my brother - although last week a passport would have been very handy :rotfl: He flew in last Thurs from Washington DC (he lives in CA but was at a wedding) and had all sorts of trouble trying to get on the plane as his dog had eaten his passport :scared1: eventually the airline called immigration over here and they said it would be ok! He was fine getting into this country but had to get a new passport, he got an appointment in London for 8am the next day :scared: He had to come to my Mums house (we live about an hour and 20 mins by train from London) get this monster form filled out - including a referee who has knwon him for 5+ years (not easy) and then get back into central London for 8am! He ended up catching a 4.30am train and getting there ok - he also had to get the tube across London during rush hour :sad2: He was very lucky as they said they could expidite it that day and told him to come back in a few hours (he first thought he would have to wait until this week and may have had to change his flight). Silly boy - I hope he has learnt his lesson and will keep it safe from now on :laughing:

The new cubage doesn't have nearly enough shelving for me, so I am going to have to get creative, and I am not sure I have time for that. :laughing:

I get to spend the day reviewing one of our residents manuscripts before it is submitted for publication. Imagine a 20 page book report with poor grammer that makes no sense in parts and it is your job to make it right. Lots of fun!

Hopefully it clears soon!
Thanks for the well wishes on our holiday. :thumbsup2
I took the opportunity to sleep in this morning.
That is until the boy's put on Disney's dance dance revelution at full volume.
I am up but my eyes are still a little blurry, will be back.

Yea...We're driving a country mile to some place up north for a camping trip. I hear we are making Smores with chocolate cake and washing it down with red wine. Should be interesting. :rolleyes1

Wow, could make for some interesting evenings. What wine goes with Smores? Perhaps a nice Chianti?

I'm thinking a Cabernet since that is my favorite with chocolate.

I will ask DH what he thinks - I'm not the biggest fan of beer. I am sure he will know what is good (as long as he doesn't start wanting to brew his own :rolleyes:)


Becx - if that happens - run for the hills!!!!! :lmao::lmao::lmao:

My ex was a homebrewer - Hops stink the house up something fierce and then they occasionally feel obliged to make you drink the flopped batches! To his defense,though, he made some pretty great beer....

If you want to be bold - try a bottle of Grenache with chocolate. It falls somewhere between a Cab and a Merlot.

WOW! I hope it's a great offer. Have you at least been out to look at houses?

We have yet to hear when placements for FH are (they were the 3rd week of July last year). It would be nice to have the dates bcs we're trying to get away to Western MD for a few days this summer before sports practices start in August. But in the meantime she has summer league games 2x a week. Good thing the weather has been decent so far this summer.

Nicole - how did Madi do? and good luck with the house stuff.

Kat - have a good drive (did you get the Santa Fe or something else?) and a good apointment

Nancy - good to see you here!

I woke up to hear on the morning news that my dinner last night was recalled - possible E coli. So far, so good.

I missed out on fireworks last night - at least seeing them - we figured it was soggy and not really worth it. We have some lovely neighbours who decided the middle of their street was a good place to light them off. :sad2: Really people...NOT SAFE! I did mention to DH that I think our long stay at the Poly with the MK view seems to have spoiled me for watching local fireworks. :rolleyes1

I confess to skipping chat so I could FINALLY sort through some pictures and post them to various places. I was running out of memory cards.

I am on vacation until next Thursday still...running errands today. DD wants to bake cookies.

have a great day all - and for those getting away for your long weekend - have a great one!

Hello Everyone!

I have been a bit of a lurker on the boards since early 2008 when I began planning a dream trip to WDW for my Daughter's birthday. I have made the decision to surprise my family with the podcast cruise 2.0. :cheer2::cheer2:

Now comes the hard part- I don't want to be a lurker any more. However, I have always been a little shy about making new friends. So here goes... My best friends are all unique, creative, and sarcastic (hmmmm.... wonder why I love the Dis so much). I am looking for people who share my love for WDW and have a warped sense of humor (like mine). Other pertinent info about me: Married, 2 kids (DD 9 and DS 5), I work in a psych hospital determining if patients meet criteria for inpatient treatment (I did warn you that my sense of humor is warped, right?). I am an Alice in Wonderland FREEEEEAK and I have made a hobby out of planning trips to WDW.

I hope that I can get to know my fellow cruisers better so that I can go on my first cruise with friends AND my family.

Now comes the hard part- I don't want to be a lurker any more. However, I have always been a little shy about making new friends. So here goes... My best friends are all unique, creative, and sarcastic (hmmmm.... wonder why I love the Dis so much). I am looking for people who share my love for WDW and have a warped sense of humor (like mine). Other pertinent info about me: Married, 2 kids (DD 9 and DS 5), I work in a psych hospital determining if patients meet criteria for inpatient treatment (I did warn you that my sense of humor is warped, right?). I am an Alice in Wonderland FREEEEEAK and I have made a hobby out of planning trips to WDW.

I hope that I can get to know my fellow cruisers better so that I can go on my first cruise with friends AND my family.

-Kelly:flower3:

WELCOME!

It sounds like you will fit right in. :)

Hi Nancy! :yay:



I was thru Detroit and STL last week. I found STL very dark and dingy and with poor food choices. Detroit on the other hand, was really really nice.

Kathy

I used to be a corporate business traveler, based out of St. Louis. I completely agree with you about STL airport. I never ate there. Ever. And I spent a good several hours a week there! Don't even get me started on the entire vacant terminal. Sad really. In it's hey day with TWA and Southwest hubs there, it just was a thriving place. I just hated how far I had to run for my flight gates. Poor design.

Good evening all! Stressful day here. We sold our house. It took two weeks. That's a great thing. However, we didn't think it would sell that quick, and we have no place to go, except Don's basement :( I think we have decided to rent until we know for sure what we want to do when we grown up. We looked at a house today that made me want to throw up. We looked at a townhouse also, and it's not too bad. Nice, but small. Like if I fell out of bed I could eat Cheerios :)

Congrats on selling the house so quickly!!! I've been looking to buy a new house and it isn't easy - so far I am like Goldilocks, nothing is quite right. :confused3

Everything happens for a reason! Now when the *right* house comes up, you can pounce on it.

If Don's basement doesn't work out, you can always come here but it will be a bit of a commute for James. Patrick and Lindsay would be happy :-)

Thanks! Here's our problem. We don't know that we want to stay in this community. Our realtor told us it should take awhile to sell our house. Well, it didn't. So, we thought we'd have a few months to decide, we don't. Here are our two choices:

1. Rent. We rent something for six months of so. Then we may either be in a situation where a new job has come open OR, we'll decide to stay put and then buy a house locally. If we rent, we don't have to worry about selling a house should we move.

2. Buy a house. With our luck, we'd buy a house and then have to move two months later. But, with buying a house, I could buy the house I want and be moving upwards instead of going backwards with a rental (smaller).

I just don't know what to do!

Have you done both? My kids are a little on the chicken-side, so I don't see parasailing as an option (I have told my daughter many, many times about how beautiful and relaxing parasailing can be- she doesn't buy it!).

Do you do excursions as a group or do you split up?

Welcome to the madness! You'll fit in just fine, everyone is so different but we all have Disney in common (which is such a refreshing change for me comppared to people at home)

I can't comment on the excursions from experience - there is a thread where people have commented on the good and bad points http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2214945

There was a group parasail - we watched it for a while from the ship before we had brunch. Looked like a lot of fun, not sure if I could get DH to go up.

Congrats on the house, Nicole. If I were in your position, I would probably rent short term if there isn't a house that you fall in love with. Especially if there is the possibility of moving relatively soon.

Welcome back, Paul. I can assume that you kept things under control in Vegas, as there wasn't anything on the news.

Mornin' all!

Nicole - how did Madi do? and good luck with the house stuff.

Kat - have a good drive (did you get the Santa Fe or something else?) and a good apointment

Nancy - good to see you here!

I woke up to hear on the morning news that my dinner last night was recalled - possible E coli. So far, so good.

I missed out on fireworks last night - at least seeing them - we figured it was soggy and not really worth it. We have some lovely neighbours who decided the middle of their street was a good place to light them off. :sad2: Really people...NOT SAFE! I did mention to DH that I think our long stay at the Poly with the MK view seems to have spoiled me for watching local fireworks. :rolleyes1

I confess to skipping chat so I could FINALLY sort through some pictures and post them to various places. I was running out of memory cards.

I am on vacation until next Thursday still...running errands today. DD wants to bake cookies.

have a great day all - and for those getting away for your long weekend - have a great one!


The appt. was good.
We are getting the Santa Fe, but will have to wait a bit for the colour we want. :)
Sorry about your dinner, hope all goes well with that for you.
We had the same thing happen here the drunks across the street decide the sidewalk and road were a good place to light off fireworks. Some people :rolleyes1:rolleyes1
Have fun with the rest of your vacation time, and good luck with the cookies. :thumbsup2

Todd considering you are one of the few that is not getting a long weekend, I say enjoy your day! :thumbsup2

Taxes, we got behind a couple of years ago when John's father passed away.
His taxes, multiple years and estate.
Which put us behind not by much only one year.
However since we are both self employed the paperwork is a nightmare. :scared1:
However we have come up with a new filing system which should help us get a handle on this for future. :thumbsup2
The funny part about this is that the government is probably going to owe us.:yay::yay:
Not much but that fine as long as we don't have to pay them. :banana:

My wife and I decided we wanted a date night last night. Since we couldn't find a baby sitter we figured the drive-in was the perfect solution. Our son would fall asleep in the back seat and we could watch Star Trek, which I had been dying to see.

This is a case of good plan poor execution. The movie started at 8:45. No sleep from the little one yet, but hey he should fall asleep any minute right? Movie starts it's Transformers not Star Trek. the paper got the order of the double feature wrong. Oh well....go with the flow, it's date night. Still not asleep "mommy I like this movie". Kid never did fall asleep. He spent the movie switching between our laps. Date night becomes family fun night.

Lessons from the drive-in: 1. Don't bring the kid and expect date night and 2. Call to make sure you are spending $20 to see a movie you actually want to see.

Needless to say fun was had by all.

I've been at my sister's house since Wednesday. They are in Clearwater, FL for the holiday weekend while Mom's doggie sitting for them here. They would have normally boarded the dogs, but their puppy missed the age cut off by just a couple days. So i've been hanging out with Mom...we don't get much time with just us, so we've been shopping and scrapbooking and just hanging out. DH is joining us today around lunch time since he has the day off! I don't think i've ever been over here when it's been soooooooo quiet...:rotfl:

Oh yeah...I have forced my Mom into listening to Twilight via audiobook. We listened to almost the whole book yesterday while scrapbooking...we've got about an hour left on the book...but I don't think Mom's become smitten with the series.

And Don...please shower...how else do you think that Aaron is finding his way to you? Forget GPS...we can smell you all the way down here!! ;)

I've been at my sister's house since Wednesday. They are in Clearwater, FL for the holiday weekend while Mom's doggie sitting for them here. They would have normally boarded the dogs, but their puppy missed the age cut off by just a couple days. So i've been hanging out with Mom...we don't get much time with just us, so we've been shopping and scrapbooking and just hanging out. DH is joining us today around lunch time since he has the day off! I don't think i've ever been over here when it's been soooooooo quiet...:rotfl:

Oh yeah...I have forced my Mom into listening to Twilight via audiobook. We listened to almost the whole book yesterday while scrapbooking...we've got about an hour left on the book...but I don't think Mom's become smitten with the series. Or maybe she is and will read the rest of it when she goes home...lol

Just popped in to say :wave2:
