Oh, I'm addicted, but at the moment I'm addicted and OBSESSED with picking dates for next December. DH is all freaked out by the big crowds I've read about this week (would be the week we go next year) vs earlier in the month. If we go later, the kids don't miss any school and we can go for a longer trip. Otherwise, we only go for 4 days/5 nights and the kids would miss 3 days of school. I can't wait for Tammi to get back to give me the scoop. So, I'm checking the TPAS board constantly looking for updates! I've already booked a package with AAA, so if we're changing, I need to do it ASAP.

Any advice or opinions from the DDA?

Denise --

I can tell you that the crowds increased exponentially on a daily basis from 12/17-12/25. We had no trouble at all doing things at the beginning of our trip and by the end it was very crowded. Still got things done... just took a lot longer.

That being said... we will still go back again Christmas week next year!

BTW -- I thought of you at MCO on Monday evening. There was a young couple with identical triplet boys in the security line. They had on Elmo sweatshirts and were as adorable as they could be!

I am going on a very unexpected trip to Disney in 17 days :cool1: I have a very good mil story to tell :goodvibes My mil, her dh, bil & family have been planning a trip to Disney in Jan. I received a call today asking if I would like to go because mil's dh has decided not to go. Everything is paid for except my food! I am so excited :cheer2: Dh & the boys will stay home, so I will have a chance to view Disney in a different way. I will miss my boys not being with me, but I will get over it :) Dh is not a big Disney fan(I am working on him)but he knows I love Disney & he is very happy for me. I will also get to the chance to stay at different resorts, 3 nights at the Contemporary, 3 nights at the Boardwalk Villas, & 1 night at AKL. I am about ready to burst! I have only stayed at value resorts, so this is really a treat. Well the whole trip is, I think I am still in shock. I just had to share this with you all, oh I need to get planning! Look out Disney here I come.............

You just got drenched with :wizard: :wizard: . Nice to see a good MIL story.

But I really miss that "bad" stuff sometimes... so when we were in WDW I thought - s0d it I'm on vacation and we ate pancakes from IHOP about 7 times! :rolleyes1

But payback is so awful, Clare. DD19 and I both have IBS and she is lactose intolerant. I seem to manage mine better than she does, mainly because I have been dealing with it longer and also because I don't appear to have the lactose intolerance. Even with Lactaid she was sick most of this past trip because she wanted to eat so many of her favorite foods. Finally by day 6 she realized she needed to pick and choose. Things did get marginally better when that happened.

Excellent Christmas Cookie Receipe

Christmas Cookie Ingredients:

1 cup of water
lemon juice
1 tsp baking soda
4 large eggs
1 cup of sugar
1 cup nuts
1 tsp salt
2 cups of dried fruit
1 cup of brown sugar
1 bottle Jack Daniel's Whiskey

Sample the Jack Daniel's to check quality. Take a large bowl, check the Jack Daniel's again, to be sure it is of the highest quality, pour one level cup and drink.

Turn on the electric mixer....Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add one teaspoon of sugar...Beat again. At this point it's best to make sure the Jack Daniel's is still OK, try another cup .just in case.

Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit. Pick the frigging fruit off floor... Mix on the turner. If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers just pry it loose with a drewscriver. Sample the Jack Daniel's to check for tonsisticity.

Next, sift two cups of salt, or something. Who giveshz a sheet. Check the Jack Daniel's. Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find. Greash the oven.

Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over. ; Don't forget to beat off the turner. Finally, throw the bowl through the window, finish the Dack Janiels and make sure to put the stove in the dishwasher.

CHERRY MISTMAS

I might have to try that recipe on New Year's Eve. I wonder if I could substitute Southern Comfort for Jack Daniels? :rotfl: :rotfl:

YOU KNOW YOU WERE A LITTLE GIRL IN THE 70'S IF.....

· You wore that rainbow shirt that had half-sleeves, and a rainbow that went up one sleeve, across your chest, and down the other.

(Then you advanced to Duck Shoes in the 80s.)

· You had homemade ribbon barrettes in every imaginable color.

· You had a pair of Doctor Scholl's sandals (the ones with hard sole & the buckle).

· You wanted your first kiss to be at the roller rink.

· Your hairstyle was described as having "wings" and You kept it "pretty" with the rainbow/purple/pink plastic comb you kept in your back pocket.

· You made Shrinky-Dinks!

· You used to tape record songs off the radio by holding your portable tape recorder up to the speaker.

· You couldn't wait to get the free animal poster that came when you ordered books from the Weekly Reader book club.

· You learned everything you needed to know about girl's issues from Judy Blume books like; "Are You there God? It's me, Margaret."

We also give the kids ornaments every year. When my two oldest moved out I gave them their ornaments they had received thru the years. I became their stepmom when they were 6 and 8 so it was a nice collection. They love it!!!

Now my two boys also look forward to putting their ornaments on the tree each year. I also put the year on the ornament somewhere with a black perm marker. This year Alex received "THE BELL" from Polar Express Movie.....and Austin received a pretty ball ornament from the move NARNIA. My husband and I also exchange ornaments. I give him every year a picture ornament with a picture of the kids that I took sometime during the year.

I love traditions!!!

We exchange ornaments every year, too. Where do you get a picture ornament at?

Becky - I would've never guessed you were 23. You always say such nice things at the right time, that I would've thought you were older for some reason :confused3

Thanks for the compliment.

I have always been told that, never seemed to fit in socially with those my age. Some of my friends in college were older than the average college student. My best friend from college just got married, she is 28 her husband is 30, one of my other friends is 33. I have some close friends who are my age and some who are younger just always seemed closer to those who are older.

Perhaps it is because I spent most of my childhood growing up with my Aunt who is 5 years older than me, everyone to this day still asks me how my "sister is doing. They also ask me how my twin is doing. They are referring to my brother he is 22 months younger than me and people always thought we were twins as kids. I don't get it as he had a white blode hair and mine was a dark brown but whatever.

I also work with people who are all 40 something or beyond, the sad thing is so many of them are female and are going through a divorce or having serious issues with there husbands it makes me so sad. I know so many people who are like that. I guess listening to them will do that to you.

OMG!! How true! My mom still has her potholders (no lie-I swear), she just pulled my Holly Hobbie sleeping bag out of the closet, I so had the Donnie and Marie dolls complete with microphones, and I broke my arm on my metal skates.

ive always had friends that were older than me....i look younger, but i act older..so strange!

My friend who is 33 is the biggest kid I have ever met. The funny thing is she can almost pass for one. When they have the age guessing game, we always give her money to play for us because we know she will will. They always guess that she is about 12 to 15.

I don't normally get carded for the normal type things. I tend to get carded if I buy spray paint or fat permanent markers. The funniest was when I bought about 10 cans of whipped topping in an aerosol can. It was about 2am and they carded me because there was some law about buying so much after a certain hour to prevent teens from huffing it.

And before all of you people's minds go in the gutter it was for an ice cream party for the marching band. Oh, wait that still sounds bad. uh nevermind.

I'm assuming y'all have been behaving! ;) I've been home since Fri night but have been so busy.I haven't gotten a chance to catch up on here yet tonight but I wanted to say hello to all of you. :wave: I have missed keeping up with everyone.I hope everybody is well and had a very Merry Christmas.

We went on an unexpected quick trip and spent one day at WDW.Joe was doing some work in Florida so Erich and I drove down to get him.We stayed with our friend who works at WDW.My cousin who couldn't take my Mom in Oct. took her for 2 nights for me,so I didn't have to worry about her. :cool1:

It was unplanned and quick but we had a great time for our day at MGM!
This is where we were last Thur night!
http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b196/Baloo1320/MGM8a.jpg

I kept my eyes open for DDAers but didn't spot any.This trip came about so quickly I couldn't even make shirts for us but I ended up bringing the cold weather with me so I wore a jacket most of the day there! :rolleyes:

Anyway wanted to give y'all a big holiday :grouphug: I hope I'll have some time later this week to catch up.

I received a call today asking if I would like to go because mil's dh has decided not to go. Everything is paid for except my food! I am so excited :cheer2: Dh & the boys will stay home, so I will have a chance to view Disney in a different way. I will miss my boys not being with me, but I will get over it :) Dh is not a big Disney fan(I am working on him)but he knows I love Disney & he is very happy for me. I will also get to the chance to stay at different resorts, 3 nights at the Contemporary, 3 nights at the Boardwalk Villas, & 1 night at AKL. I am about ready to burst! I have only stayed at value resorts, so this is really a treat. Well the whole trip is, I think I am still in shock. I just had to share this with you all, oh I need to get planning!

We were in bed by 11:30 p.m., hopeful for some good sleep since for the last few years our kids haven't awakened before 8:00. Not so this year. At 5:00 all 4 were awake and clamoring for us to get up. We were able to stall them for an hour and a half by telling them that Santa could still come back and take all the presents away if they woke us up again. At 6:30, however, they had waited long enough.

Glynis --

When I was a little girl, Santa left our stockings on our doorknobs or on our bedposts. We were allowed to get up and open the stocking gifts (and some of the BEST gifts were found in there!) but not allowed to waken our parents until it was light out. There was always something good to eat in those stockings too, like oranges and shortbreads. Santa sure was smart!

Kate -

Maybe you and your DH need a copy of this:

Ten Simple Rules For Dating My Daughter
Rule One :

If you pull into my driveway and honk you'd better be delivering a package, because you're sure not picking anything up.

Rule Two :

You do not touch my daughter in front of me. You may glance at her, so long as you do not peer at anything below her neck. If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter's body, I will remove them.

Rule Three :

I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys your age to wear their trousers so loose that they appear to be falling off. Please don't take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots. Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue, so I propose this compromise: You may come to the door with your underwear showing and your pants ten sizes too big, and I will not object. However, to ensure that your clothes do not, in fact, come off during your date with my daughter, I will use my electric nail gun and fasten your trousers securely to your waist.

Rule Four :

I'm sure you've been told that in today's world, sex without utilizing a "barrier method" of some kind can kill you. Let me elaborate, when it comes to sex, I am the barrier, and I will kill you.

Rule Five :

In order for us to get to know each other, we should talk about sports, politics, and other issues of the day. Please do not do this. The only information I require from you is an indication of when you expect to have my daughter safely back at my house, and the only word I need from you on this subject is "early."

Rule Six :

I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many opportunities to date other girls. This is fine with me as long as it is okay with my daughter. Otherwise, once you have gone out with my little girl, you will continue to date no one but her until she is finished with you. If you make her cry, I will make you cry.

Rule Seven :

As you stand in my front hallway, waiting for my daughter to appear, and more than an hour goes by, do not sigh and fidget. If you want to be on time for the movie, you should not be dating. My daughter is putting on her makeup, a process that can take longer than painting the Golden Gate Bridge. Instead of just standing there, why don't you do something useful, like changing the oil in my car?

Rule Eight :

The following places are not appropriate for a date with my daughter: Places where there are beds, sofas, or anything softer than a wooden stool. Places where there are no parents, policemen, or nuns within eyesight. Places where there is darkness. Places where there is dancing, holding hands, or happiness. Places where the ambient temperature is warm enough for my daughter to wear shorts, tank tops, midriff T-shirts, or anything other than overalls, a sweater, and a goose down parka zipped up to her throat. Movies with a strong romantic or sexual theme are to be avoided; movies which features chain saws are okay. Hockey games are okay. Old folks homes are better.

Rule Nine :

Do not lie to me. I may appear to be a potbellied, balding, middle-aged, dimwitted has-been. But on issues relating to my daughter, I am the all-knowing, merciless god of your universe. If I ask you where you are going and with whom, you have one chance to tell me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I have a shotgun, a shovel, and five acres behind the house. Do not trifle with me.

Rule Ten :

Be afraid. Be very afraid. It takes very little for me to mistake the sound of your car in the driveway for a chopper coming in over a rice paddy outside of Hanoi. When my Agent Orange starts acting up, the voices in my head frequently tell me to clean the guns as I wait for you to bring my daughter home. As soon as you pull into the driveway you should exit your car with both hands in plain sight. Speak the perimeter password, announce in a clear voice that you have brought my daughter home safely and early, then return to your car--there is no need for you to come inside. The camouflaged face watching you from the window is mine.

:rotfl: :rotfl: Thank God my father didn't have that one when I started dating.

I think they still drink they just buy it at the liquor store and serve it themselves. Unfortuantely I think bartending in the job sense is becoming obsolete. Some people will still pay for it but more and more are figuring they can do it themsleves.

You used to have to go to bartending school to learn to mix drinks, or learn from someone else. Now you can find any drink from anywhere in the world online and the recipe on how to make it, without leaving your own home. Some places even have liquor stores that deliver.

This is one of my favorites:

YOU KNOW YOU WERE A LITTLE GIRL IN THE 70'S IF.....

· You wore that rainbow shirt that had half-sleeves, and a rainbow that went up one sleeve, across your chest, and down the other.

· You made baby chocolate cakes in Your Easy Bake Oven. You washed them down with snow cones from Your Snoopy Snow Cone Machine.

· You had that Fisher Price Doctor's Kit with a stethoscope that actually worked.
· You owned a bicycle with a banana seat, handlebar streamers, and a basket.

· You owned roller skates with metal wheels. (Maybe even the one's that attached over top of your shoes!)

· You thought Gopher from The Love Boat was cute. (Admit it!)
· You had nightmares after watching Fantasy Island.

· You had rubber boots for rainy/snowy days - remember Moon Boots?
(Then you advanced to Duck Shoes in the 80s.)

· You had an orange Tupperware lunchbox, or a metal Muppets lunchbox with matching thermos.
· You had either a "bowl cut" or a "pixie", not to mention the "Dorothy Hamill". How traumatic when people thought that you were a boy.
· Your Holly Hobbie sleeping bag was your most prized possession.

· You wore a poncho, gauchos, and knickers.

· You begged Santa for the electronic game, Simon. (of course Nancy got it!! :rolleyes: )

· You had the Donnie and Marie dolls with those pink and purple shredded outfits.

· You spent hours out back on your metal swing set with the trapeze.

· You had homemade ribbon barrettes in every imaginable color.

· You had a pair of Doctor Scholl's sandals (the ones with hard sole & the buckle).

· You wanted to be Laura Ingalls Wilder really badly. You wore that Little House on the Prairie-inspired plaid, ruffle shirt with the high neck in at least one school picture; and you despised Nellie Olson!

· You wanted your first kiss to be at the roller rink.

· Your hairstyle was described as having "wings" and You kept it "pretty" with the rainbow/purple/pink plastic comb you kept in your back pocket.

· You know who Strawberry Shortcake is, as well as who her friends; Blueberry Muffin, Apple Dumpling, and Huckleberry Pie were.
· You and your girlfriends would fight over which of the Dukes of Hazzard was your boyfriend.

· Every now and then "It's A Hard Knock Life" from the movie, "Annie" will pop into your brain and you can't stop singing it the whole day.
· You had Star Wars action figures.

· It was a big event in your household each year when the "Wizard of Oz" would come on TV. Your mom would break out the popcorn and sleeping bags!

· You had the "Wizard of Oz" doll set , too.

· You had subscriptions to Dynamite and Tiger Beat.

· You asked your Magic-8 Ball the question: "Who will I marry...Shaun Cassidy, Leif Garrett, or Rick Springfield?"

· You completely wore out your "Grease", "Saturday Night Fever", and "Fame" soundtrack albums.

· You tried to do lots of arts and crafts things, like yarn and Popsicle stick God's Eyes or those weird potholders made on a plastic loom.

· You made Shrinky-Dinks!

· You used to tape record songs off the radio by holding your portable tape recorder up to the speaker.

· You couldn't wait to get the free animal poster that came when you ordered books from the Weekly Reader book club.

· You learned everything you needed to know about girl's issues from Judy Blume books like; "Are You there God? It's me, Margaret."

· You thought Olivia Newton John's song, "Physical" was about aerobics. :rotfl:
· You wore friendship pins on your tennis shoes, or shoelaces with heart or rainbow designs.

· You wanted to be a Solid Gold dancer.

· You had a Big Wheel with a brake on the side, and a Sit-n-Spin.

I decided to bold everything that applied to me - and realized I really only need the Snoopy snow cone machine and Wizard of oz dolls!!!!

My mom still has my snoopy snow cone machine. Oh wait, I think it's in colby's closet along with the cotton candy machine. I can relate to 90% of those things. I'm glad that I'm not the only 30 something person on here.

Just got this and thought I would share. :rotfl:
Excellent Christmas Cookie Receipe

Christmas Cookie Ingredients:

1 cup of water
lemon juice
1 tsp baking soda
4 large eggs
1 cup of sugar
1 cup nuts
1 tsp salt
2 cups of dried fruit
1 cup of brown sugar
1 bottle Jack Daniel's Whiskey

Sample the Jack Daniel's to check quality. Take a large bowl, check the Jack Daniel's again, to be sure it is of the highest quality, pour one level cup and drink.

Turn on the electric mixer....Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add one teaspoon of sugar...Beat again. At this point it's best to make sure the Jack Daniel's is still OK, try another cup .just in case.

Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit. Pick the frigging fruit off floor... Mix on the turner. If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers just pry it loose with a drewscriver. Sample the Jack Daniel's to check for tonsisticity.

Next, sift two cups of salt, or something. Who giveshz a sheet. Check the Jack Daniel's. Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find. Greash the oven.

Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over. ; Don't forget to beat off the turner. Finally, throw the bowl through the window, finish the Dack Janiels and make sure to put the stove in the dishwasher.

I was thinking of one of the Boardwalk resort for our trip in Oct. Either that one or Beach or Yacht Club, since the food and wine festival will be going on. BTW, can anyone tell me how that works? Do you have to pay for all that stuff or is it included with admission?

Tammi --

You pay for each sample of food or drink as you go... anywhere from $2-4 or so. One of our favorite times to go and the BW would be the perfect place to be. We stayed at the BWI in October and walked over to Epcot every day.

We went on an unexpected quick trip and spent one day at WDW.Joe was doing some work in Florida so Erich and I drove down to get him.We stayed with our friend who works at WDW.My cousin who couldn't take my Mom in Oct. took her for 2 nights for me,so I didn't have to worry about her. :cool1:

It was unplanned and quick but we had a great time for our day at MGM!

I am working on New Year's Eve and tips are usually great. Cocktailing I usually walk away with $150 plus $8/hr. Not bad for a job that I do for fun. I have definately noticed less drinking due to the state laws regulating alcohol sales. It regulates all people, not just those driving. Not like the good old days.

I just discovered the candy store I shop at has an online site too. http://www.sugarcraft.com/

Their dry fondant and colored sugar is very reasonably priced.

I think they call those people alcoholics and/or minors. :rotfl: :rotfl: . It is true that you can mix drinks at home, but most people do not have bars that would have enough ingredients to prepare more than a couple of specific drinks. I know that most people have at least one drink when they go out for dinner. Many people also enjoy sitting at a bar and socializing. It is definately not a lost art and I know people that would kill to have the job that I have. The funny thing is I do it for fun and to have time away from the house. I choose to be a stay at home mom and also choose to work a few evenings a week for my sanity. Once my kids are all in school I'll use my education and pursue my career, but I will always have awesome memories of my time behind the bar. Few people are as fortunate as I to have that opportunity.

Tonight I took Julia to a birthday party for one of the little boys in her class - there were 12 kids there -

he inivted the neighborhood kids - that included one girl - who was a twin to one of the boys so she was a must invite -

then he was allowed to invite 4 from their class - 3 boys and Julia

one of the little boys spent a good portion of the evening stroking Julia's hair and telling her how beautiful it was - and when we left Nathan (the birthday boy) gave Julia a HUGE hug and kissed her on the cheek -

I AM IN SO MUCH TROUBLE!!

Hi everyone! I'm still back on page 1295, but catching up. I just wanted to say hello and I hope that everyone's Christmases were great! Santa visited our hour while we were out to dinner last Wednesday. He brought Terra her Capt. Feathersword Sword so she was thrilled. She also loved her dress up clothes that we got for her. Luckily, I left those until the last 2 boxes to open because she had to try on EVERYTHING before going on to the next present. Friday, we left for the airport at 5am and were in CA by 11am. We got to spend the day with my best friend and celebrated her grandfather's birthday (I finally got to decorate some cookies!).

Saturday morning, I was up at 3am (damn jetlag) and Terra got up at 4:15. We hit IHOP and then decided to hit Disneyland!!! YIPPEE!!! In under 4 hours on Christmas Eve we did Dumbo, Carousel, Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, Casey Jr., Storybook Canal Boats, Tea Cups, Alice in Wonderland, Holiday Small World, Autopia cars, Jungle Cruise, Tiki Room (Terra's favorite) and, the highlight of my day - Terra's first trip on the Materhorn! It was a lot of fun. After that, we spent a great Christmas Eve with my best friend and her Dad's part of the family. We ran back to DL when we were done early enough and caught the Electrical Parade. We wanted to see the fireworks (which are SO great), but the fog was too heavy and they were cancelled. :(

Christmas morning dawned with Terra and I up at 4:30 this time. We got out the Minnie doll and Disney Chutes and Ladders that Santa had left overnight then hit Denny's for some early morning coffee and pie. Once DH finally got up we had breakfast at Rainforest Cafe in DTD before going to Build a Bear and World of Disney. After that, we spent a surprisingly fun rest of the day with DH's family.

Monday, after being up by 5am AGAIN and hitting IHOP AGAIN :), we hit DL again for a couple of hours before meeting up with our old playgroup. In an hour and a half, we did the Monorail, Autopia, Holiday Small World, Tea Cups and Tiki Room. I tried to upgrade my ticket to an AP, but the office wasn't open yet as their people were helping at the front gate. Instead, I had to come back later that night before leaving for the airport, which turned out to be an adventure in itself :rolleyes:

After hitting my friend up for boxes and a duffle bag, we finally figured out how to get all of the gifts home (note to self - never give someone that has to fly ACROSS country with their gifts 2 Little People sets and a Thomas Train set, plus everything else) and took the red eye home. I was DEAD tired when we got home, but it was fun! Plus, I got Disney Scene It and Disney Uno so who can argue with that. :banana:

Hope all the little ones are feeling better now!! I will finish catching up soon and will be heading to the new weight loss thread soon, especially after eating as much as I did all weekend. :rolleyes1

Wow sounds like an amazing Christmas - maybe I should try going to Dl/WDW for Christmas one time - although I did enjoy our quiet at home Christmas this year... pity we couldn't nip put to MK in the afternoon though when there was nothing on the tv :rolleyes1

I was DEAD tired when we got home, but it was fun! Plus, I got Disney Scene It and Disney Uno so who can argue with that. :banana:

Hope all the little ones are feeling better now!! I will finish catching up soon and will be heading to the new weight loss thread soon, especially after eating as much as I did all weekend. :rolleyes1

Glad to hear you had a good time. We loved the holiday Small World. The kids enjoyed it. My 2 older DS's , DH and I loved the Nightmare Before Christmas themed Haunted Mansion. It had so many neat details. We had sat for an hour one night in the hub and the FW got cancelled. We did catch them another night and the Electrical Parade. My DH lost DS,4 YO, after the FW. He ran off to chase the "snow" and DH lost sight of him. I was staying with the baby and other kids while DH went up and down Main Street. We found him 20 min. later but I was a wreck. I really snapped at DH. Thankfully, God watched over him and he was safe and sound. Was it too crowded Christmas? We heard it would be unbearable.

HHHHeeeelllllooooo?????


Ahh is that why you guys hit 30 odd pages last night???? I'll never catch up during breakfast and I have a feeling I'm gonna miss the 20,000 milestone too... I'm way back on page something or other... wait for me to catch up!!!

Guess what book Skunka got for Christmas?? He got Kingdom Keepers. It's a story that is set in the Magic Kingdom. He really wanted it and my dad really surprised him! I also got a good one - the Imagineers Field Guide (I think that's what it is called?!

As for weather - it has been warm! It was over 40 today. If any of you know the Rochester area of NY, that is warm for this time of year. But we both actually prefer being cold as opposed to warm. Florida in August would scare me away!!!

I nearly bought these on our triip - but books in the states are ridiculously expensive so I figured I'd wait until I got home - and forgot to put them on my list to santa.

So make sure you write us a book report so I can decide whether to get them or not :goodvibes

Okay guys, I was looking at the website of the guys who wrote the "Rules for Dating my Daughter."

Here is his essay on judging the chili contest. I was truly laughing out loud, all alone here in my LR.

Chili Judge
Copyright 1997 W. Bruce Cameron
Please do not remove the copyright from this essay

Recently I was honored to be selected as an Outstanding Famous Celebrity in my Community to be a judge at a chili cook-off because no one else wanted to do it. Also the original person called in sick at the last moment and I happened to be standing there at the judge's table asking directions to the beer wagon when the call came.

I was assured by the other two judges that the chili wouldn't be all that spicy, and besides they told me I could have free beer during the tasting, so I accepted this as being one of those burdens you endure when you're an Internet writer and therefore known and adored by all.

Here are the scorecards from the event:

Chili # 1: Mike's Maniac Mobster Monster Chili

JUDGE ONE: A little too heavy on tomato. Amusing kick.
JUDGE TWO: Nice, smooth tomato flavor Very mild.
CAMERON: Holy smokes, what is this stuff? You could remove dried paint from your driveway with it. Took me two beers to put the flames out. Hope that's the worst one. These people are crazy.

Chili # 2: Arthur's Afterburner Chili

JUDGE ONE: Smoky (barbecue?) with a hint of pork. Slight Jalapeno tang.
JUDGE TWO: Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be taken seriously.
CAMERON: Keep this out of reach of children! I'm not sure what I am supposed to taste besides pain. I had to wave off two people who wanted to give me the Heimlich maneuver. Shoved my way to the front of the beer line. The barmaid looks like a professional wrestler after a bad night. She was so irritated over my gagging sounds that the snake tattoo under her eye started to twitch. She has arms like Popeye and a face like Winston Churchill. I will NOT pick a fight with her.

Chili # 3: Fred's Famous Burn Down the Barn Chili

JUDGE ONE: Excellent firehouse chili! Great kick. Needs more beans.
JUDGE TWO: A beanless chili, a bit salty, good use of red peppers.
CAMERON: This has got to be a joke. Call the EPA, I've located a uranium spill. My nose feels like I have been sneezing Drano. Everyone knows the routine by now and got out of my way so I could make it to the beer wagon. Barmaid pounded me on the back; now my backbone is in the front part of my chest. She said her friends call her "Sally." Probably behind her back they call her "Forklift."

Chili # 4: Bubba's Black Magic

JUDGE ONE: Black bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing.
JUDGE TWO: A hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for fish or other mild foods, not much of a chili.
CAMERON: I felt something scraping across my tongue but was unable to taste it. Sally was standing behind me with fresh refills so I wouldn't have to dash over to see her. When she winked at me her snake sort of coiled and uncoiled—it's kinda cute.

Chili # 5: Linda's Legal Lip Remover

JUDGE ONE: Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers freshly ground adding considerable kick. Very impressive.
JUDGE TWO: Chili using shredded beef; could use more tomato. Must admit the cayenne peppers make a strong statement.
CAMERON: My ears are ringing and I can no longer focus my eyes. I belched and four people in front of me needed paramedics. The contestant seemed hurt when I told her that her chili had given me brain damage. Sally saved my tongue by pouring beer directly on it from a pitcher. Sort of irritates me that one of the other judges asked me to stop screaming.

Chili # 6: Vera's Very Vegetarian Variety

JUDGE ONE: Thin yet bold vegetarian variety chili. Good balance of spice and peppers.
JUDGE TWO: The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions, and garlic. Superb.
CAMERON: My intestines are now a straight pipe filled with gaseous flames. No one seems inclined to stand behind me except Sally. I asked if she wants to go dancing later.

Chili # 7: Susan's Screaming Sensation Chili

JUDGE ONE: A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned peppers.
JUDGE TWO: Ho Hum, tastes as if the chef threw in canned chili peppers at the last moment. I should note that I am a bit worried about Judge Number 3, he appears to be in a bit of distress.
CAMERON: You could put a hand grenade in my mouth and pull the pin and I wouldn't feel it. I've lost the sight in one eye and the world sounds like it is made of rushing water. My clothes are covered with chili which slid unnoticed out of my mouth at some point. Good, at autopsy they'll know what killed me. Go Sally, save yourself before it's too late. Tell our children I'm sorry I was not there to conceive them. I've decided to stop breathing, it's too painful and I'm not getting any oxygen anyway. If I need air I'll just let it in through the hole in my stomach. Call the X-Files people and tell them I've found a super nova on my tongue.

Chili # 8: Helen's Mount Saint Chili

JUDGE ONE: This final entry is a good, balanced chili, neither mild nor hot. Sorry to see that most of it was lost when Judge Number 3 fell and pulled the chili pot on top of himself.
JUDGE TWO: A perfect ending, this is a nice blend chili, safe for all, not too bold but spicy enough to declare its existence.
CAMERON: Momma?

pg 1350

I had decided to head to bed after page 1350. I have to go to bed now. My stomach hurts. I've tested the walls... They are thick and the ceiling must have some soundproofing, as none of my family is down here wondering why I am laughing so hard I'm crying.

I could read about Disney all the time. I have a question for all of you... have any of you ever used Tour Guide Mike?? Is he the guy that designs tour plans for you to follow based on a time of year? If you used him, would you please give me an opinion of it and what it cost you? Thanks!

I used him - thought he was fantastic and worth every cent. Didn't think much of the forums over there though - the DISers are much friendlier IMHO... <light blue touch paper and duck>

One thing though - if you get it ignore the thing about watching Wishes from DUmbo - that pretty much ruined two of our nights there - you'll find out more when I get to it in my trip reports... I very nearly asked for a refund based on that one comment!

That confused me for the first couple of episodes :goodvibes Especially when I hadn't heard he was in it - and saw him and though - I know that face - took me a while to work it out... I loved Party of 5 when I was a kid - wish they'd bring that out on DVD... I was madly in love with Bailey :love:

I know you were all were just trying to irritate me - but you actually probably ended up hurting Denise who is probably tired and worn out and was looking forward to coming on here tomorrow and chatting with us and celebrating 20,000 - but now on top of having to spend a horrible day with her MIL - she missed it - I bet you all feel like crap now!!!

I get the same thing. I have, on more than one occasion, been carded for movies... And on the phone, people think I'm about 12. I still have people ask for my mom or dad sometimes! :rotfl:

When we're older, I'm sure we'll appreciate it!

That reminds me of a time when I had just bought my first house - must have been about 24 - and I opened the front door one evening in my jammies to someone trying to sign you up for newspaper deliveries... and she asked if my mum was home :rotfl2:

OK, Kate, as I read your post (4 hours and 3000 posts later) I was listening to a Barenaked Ladies song called "Everything Old is New Again." Totally appropriate, and here's why:

YOU KNOW YOU WERE A LITTLE GIRL IN THE 70'S IF.....

You had that Fisher Price Doctor's Kit with a stethoscope that actually worked.
Santa brought this for DS this year.

You begged Santa for the electronic game, Simon
I actually saw this for sale in KB Toys on Christmas Eve this year!

You know who Strawberry Shortcake is, as well as who her friends; Blueberry Muffin, Apple Dumpling, and Huckleberry Pie were.
They're ba-a-ck! DD knows who they are now, too.

Every now and then "It's A Hard Knock Life" from the movie, "Annie" will pop into your brain and you can't stop singing it the whole day.
This was re-done as a hip-hop song about 5-8 years ago. My best friend was working at a children's home (AKA "orphanage") and it just made her bust out laughing when the kids there started singing it. Oh and DD has 2 different Annie DVDs that she watches constantly (the original '80s version or "Curly-Haired Annie" and the ABC TV version or "Straight-Haired Annie" as we call them).

You completely wore out your "Grease", "Saturday Night Fever", and "Fame" soundtrack albums.
DD's favorite movie for a time was Grease. I was in heaven and DH was in agony for that phase of her life!

You made Shrinky-Dinks!
They're back and better than before. I was at Hobby Lobby and was inches away from impulse buying the inkjet Shrinky-Dink paper, thinking it would make great WDW luggage tags (or something, anything DDA-related).

You had a Big Wheel with a brake on the side, and a Sit-n-Spin.
Santa was inches away from impulse buying both of these for DS this year!

Anyway, thanks for posting that, Kate. It's on its way via e-mail to all my 1971/72 birthyear friends.

Ok here's an example of how the differences in our language can get you into trouble...

I subscribe to a daily quote email from an american site - where they also give you a Did you know...

Today I received this:

~~~

Did you know...

...that today is No Wearing Pants Day? In 1852, in Boston, a woman was arrested for wearing pants. Wear some pants today to celebrate your freedom

~~~

Now you may not find that funny - but in England pants are knickers not trousers... so at first I was like - why on earth would you be arrested for wearing knickers?? I could understand it the other way round... then the penny dropped :rotfl2: :rotfl2: :rotfl2:

When we're older, I'm sure we'll appreciate it!
I have a little-girl phone voice despite my best efforts, which is annoying when I'm trying to be professional but it's a godsend when telemarketers call. Them: "Is the head of the household available?" Me: "No, sorry. They're not in at the moment." It gets you off the phone so much faster than anything else you tell them. (Of course, the Do Not Call list helps cut those calls down, too.)

Please clarify. Uncle Jesse who one of you had a crush on and now another DDA's DD has a crush on: was that Uncle Jesse from Dukes of Hazzard or Uncle Jesse of Full House fame?

I read the first post when y'all were talking about 1970s crushes, so my mind immediately went to the Dukes Uncle Jesse and I was more than a little grossed out (sorry if that's actually who your crush was on). I didn't even think of John Stamos' portrayal of Uncle Jesse until the post about DD's crush some 30 pages later!

A day late and a dollar short since I missed the posting frenzy, but my very first celeb crush would have been Andy Gibb. Amy, I thought you and I were the same age. How can you consider yourself too young for him? :confused3 Now granted, I was maybe 8 at the time...

Can you post it again?


Not sure if it is posted yet so I will go ahead.

1 egg yolk + 1tsp of water
mix together and separate in 4 bowls
to each bowl add 5 drops of different food colors

I bought some cheap paint brushes from the craft department and paint on the sugar cookies BEFORE you bake them. Make sure the colors are really dark or bright.....depending on the color. When they come out of the oven they have a nice shiny glaze to them.

My kids enjoyed it.

Marti - I subscribed to TGM when we went Christmas week last year.

I think it is well worth the $20, I can give you a code for $3.00 off if you want one.

It takes a little time to get used to the process, but well worth it.
I haven't used him before (cocky ex-CM here), but we never went for Christmas week before, either. I am planning/hoping to go next Christmas; something like the 22nd through 26th (earlier if school schedule allows). I've followed the some of the plans in the Unofficial Users' Guide and had great luck with the "Dumbo or Die" plan for MK on DD's 5th birthday. But I'm guessing all bets are off around Christmas time, right? Does Tour Guide Mike have special plans for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day?

Thanks, everyone who has posted both the good and the bad about TGM. I'm still debating, so any more feedback is welcome.

Anyway, could you please PM me with the code in case I do decide to purchase? TIA!

I received a call today asking if I would like to go because mil's dh has decided not to go. Everything is paid for except my food! I am so excited :cheer2: Dh & the boys will stay home, so I will have a chance to view Disney in a different way. I will miss my boys not being with me, but I will get over it :) Dh is not a big Disney fan(I am working on him)but he knows I love Disney & he is very happy for me. I will also get to the chance to stay at different resorts, 3 nights at the Contemporary, 3 nights at the Boardwalk Villas, & 1 night at AKL. I am about ready to burst! I have only stayed at value resorts, so this is really a treat. Well the whole trip is, I think I am still in shock. I just had to share this with you all, oh I need to get planning! Look out Disney here I come.............
WOW!! You are so lucky! And to sample 3 different resorts. How exciting.

We went on an unexpected quick trip and spent one day at WDW.Joe was doing some work in Florida so Erich and I drove down to get him.We stayed with our friend who works at WDW.My cousin who couldn't take my Mom in Oct. took her for 2 nights for me,so I didn't have to worry about her. :cool1:

It was unplanned and quick but we had a great time for our day at MGM!
This is where we were last Thur night!

You and I have the same tastes, Amy. John Schneider was a big crush of mine, too. I never liked Ricky in Silver Spoons and thought it was insane when the cast him on NYPD. But he was great in that role and I fell in lust with him. Another of my crushes was Greg Evigan, from BJ and the Bear. Now I know I am really showing my age.

I can tell you that the crowds increased exponentially on a daily basis from 12/17-12/25. We had no trouble at all doing things at the beginning of our trip and by the end it was very crowded. Still got things done... just took a lot longer.

That being said... we will still go back again Christmas week next year!

BTW -- I thought of you at MCO on Monday evening. There was a young couple with identical triplet boys in the security line. They had on Elmo sweatshirts and were as adorable as they could be!
See....I didn't think it was noticably bad until the 24th. We followed TGMs "best day" calendar and his tour plans.

Denise -- I noticed this in the photos from your trip report, but it's really evident in the photo of BK looking over her shoulder. She is going to be a heart-breaker when she gets to high school! Your DH will have to beat the boys off with a stick!!

Good luck tomorrow!! Prayers and pixie dust.

My mom and I haven't talked to her mom in 13 years. The last time my mom and she spoke, my parents were in the middle of a divorce and my mom needed all the support - not bashing - she could get. My grandmother was being mean about something and arguing with my mom, and then said, "I'm hanging up on you now.... call me back." But my mom never has. She'd had enough! I won't even go into all the awful things she said to my mother and I throughout our lives. Get this, when I was 13 (and fully developed physically but not mentally and still coming to grips with my new body), she said to me, "so, you're on the pill, right?" Of course as a young girl I translated that to mean that something must be terribly wrong with me since I wasn't dating yet, had no interest in having sex with anyone yet, etc. Who in their right mind reinforces negative self image in their granddaughter?!?

Having said that, your MIL takes the cake on witchiness!!

Hugs and pixie dust!!

Jennifer

Hello all - back from a great day of anniversary stuff! We started with a family outing to see Narnia. We loved it - it was a bit long and I was worried that DS (7) wouldn't sit through the whole thing, but he loved it even more! With the previews it was 2 1/2 hours long. AND we got there early, so he sat in that seat for quite a long time with no complaints!!!

Then we dropped him at a friends house and went for dinner. It was nice to have a quiet dinner without coloring first! And there were linen napkins - what a nice change.

For my Christmas gift this year I got a three piece luggage set from the Disney Store and my upcoming birthday trip - so not all DH pick out bad presents!!! Since he's on vacation this week, we're going out now for another family outing... talk to you later!! Maybe I can go on a posting frenzy and pass 1,000!!

Glad you all had such a nice day!

Just wait -- I'm seeing styles that were popular way back and now they are popular again... speaking of Care Bears... I used to have a glass with the green bear on it - I think he was lucky bear. Anyway, it broke in college and I cried like a baby!!!! OK, maybe TMI!!!
The styles from the 70's were in just a couple of years ago. It was weird seeing my daughters in clothes that I would have worn at their age. I had a couple of special things that I had saved from when I was a teenager and they "borrowed" them from me because they were back in style. One of them looks so much like me when I was that age that I would do double takes. It was like going back 25 years and seeing myself in a mirror. That is weird enough without them wearing the same style clothes!

12-29-2005, 10:29 AM
This is one of my favorites:

YOU KNOW YOU WERE A LITTLE GIRL IN THE 70'S IF.....

· You wore that rainbow shirt that had half-sleeves, and a rainbow that went up one sleeve, across your chest, and down the other.

· You made baby chocolate cakes in Your Easy Bake Oven. You washed them down with snow cones from Your Snoopy Snow Cone Machine.

· You had that Fisher Price Doctor's Kit with a stethoscope that actually worked.
· You owned a bicycle with a banana seat, handlebar streamers, and a basket.

· You owned roller skates with metal wheels. (Maybe even the one's that attached over top of your shoes!)

· You thought Gopher from The Love Boat was cute. (Admit it!)
· You had nightmares after watching Fantasy Island.

· You had rubber boots for rainy/snowy days - remember Moon Boots?
(Then you advanced to Duck Shoes in the 80s.)

· You had an orange Tupperware lunchbox, or a metal Muppets lunchbox with matching thermos.
· You had either a "bowl cut" or a "pixie", not to mention the "Dorothy Hamill". How traumatic when people thought that you were a boy.
· Your Holly Hobbie sleeping bag was your most prized possession.

· You wore a poncho, gauchos, and knickers.

· You begged Santa for the electronic game, Simon. (of course Nancy got it!! :rolleyes: )

· You had the Donnie and Marie dolls with those pink and purple shredded outfits.

· You spent hours out back on your metal swing set with the trapeze.

· You had homemade ribbon barrettes in every imaginable color.

· You had a pair of Doctor Scholl's sandals (the ones with hard sole & the buckle).

· You wanted to be Laura Ingalls Wilder really badly. You wore that Little House on the Prairie-inspired plaid, ruffle shirt with the high neck in at least one school picture; and you despised Nellie Olson!

· You wanted your first kiss to be at the roller rink.

· Your hairstyle was described as having "wings" and You kept it "pretty" with the rainbow/purple/pink plastic comb you kept in your back pocket.

· You know who Strawberry Shortcake is, as well as who her friends; Blueberry Muffin, Apple Dumpling, and Huckleberry Pie were.
· You and your girlfriends would fight over which of the Dukes of Hazzard was your boyfriend.

· Every now and then "It's A Hard Knock Life" from the movie, "Annie" will pop into your brain and you can't stop singing it the whole day.
· You had Star Wars action figures.

· It was a big event in your household each year when the "Wizard of Oz" would come on TV. Your mom would break out the popcorn and sleeping bags!

· You had the "Wizard of Oz" doll set , too.

· You had subscriptions to Dynamite and Tiger Beat.

· You asked your Magic-8 Ball the question: "Who will I marry...Shaun Cassidy, Leif Garrett, or Rick Springfield?"

· You completely wore out your "Grease", "Saturday Night Fever", and "Fame" soundtrack albums.

· You tried to do lots of arts and crafts things, like yarn and Popsicle stick God's Eyes or those weird potholders made on a plastic loom.

· You made Shrinky-Dinks!

· You used to tape record songs off the radio by holding your portable tape recorder up to the speaker.

· You couldn't wait to get the free animal poster that came when you ordered books from the Weekly Reader book club.

· You learned everything you needed to know about girl's issues from Judy Blume books like; "Are You there God? It's me, Margaret."

· You thought Olivia Newton John's song, "Physical" was about aerobics. :rotfl:
· You wore friendship pins on your tennis shoes, or shoelaces with heart or rainbow designs.

· You wanted to be a Solid Gold dancer.

· You had a Big Wheel with a brake on the side, and a Sit-n-Spin.

I decided to bold everything that applied to me - and realized I really only need the Snoopy snow cone machine and Wizard of oz dolls!!!!
Thanks for that walk down memory lane, Kate. I think all but 3 or so apply to me! Now you got that stupid Annie song in my head!

Hi everyone! I'm still back on page 1295, but catching up. I just wanted to say hello and I hope that everyone's Christmases were great! Santa visited our hour while we were out to dinner last Wednesday. He brought Terra her Capt. Feathersword Sword so she was thrilled. She also loved her dress up clothes that we got for her. Luckily, I left those until the last 2 boxes to open because she had to try on EVERYTHING before going on to the next present. Friday, we left for the airport at 5am and were in CA by 11am. We got to spend the day with my best friend and celebrated her grandfather's birthday (I finally got to decorate some cookies!).

Saturday morning, I was up at 3am (damn jetlag) and Terra got up at 4:15. We hit IHOP and then decided to hit Disneyland!!! YIPPEE!!! In under 4 hours on Christmas Eve we did Dumbo, Carousel, Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, Casey Jr., Storybook Canal Boats, Tea Cups, Alice in Wonderland, Holiday Small World, Autopia cars, Jungle Cruise, Tiki Room (Terra's favorite) and, the highlight of my day - Terra's first trip on the Materhorn! It was a lot of fun. After that, we spent a great Christmas Eve with my best friend and her Dad's part of the family. We ran back to DL when we were done early enough and caught the Electrical Parade. We wanted to see the fireworks (which are SO great), but the fog was too heavy and they were cancelled. :(

Christmas morning dawned with Terra and I up at 4:30 this time. We got out the Minnie doll and Disney Chutes and Ladders that Santa had left overnight then hit Denny's for some early morning coffee and pie. Once DH finally got up we had breakfast at Rainforest Cafe in DTD before going to Build a Bear and World of Disney. After that, we spent a surprisingly fun rest of the day with DH's family.

Monday, after being up by 5am AGAIN and hitting IHOP AGAIN :), we hit DL again for a couple of hours before meeting up with our old playgroup. In an hour and a half, we did the Monorail, Autopia, Holiday Small World, Tea Cups and Tiki Room. I tried to upgrade my ticket to an AP, but the office wasn't open yet as their people were helping at the front gate. Instead, I had to come back later that night before leaving for the airport, which turned out to be an adventure in itself :rolleyes:

After hitting my friend up for boxes and a duffle bag, we finally figured out how to get all of the gifts home (note to self - never give someone that has to fly ACROSS country with their gifts 2 Little People sets and a Thomas Train set, plus everything else) and took the red eye home. I was DEAD tired when we got home, but it was fun! Plus, I got Disney Scene It and Disney Uno so who can argue with that. :banana:

Hope all the little ones are feeling better now!! I will finish catching up soon and will be heading to the new weight loss thread soon, especially after eating as much as I did all weekend. :rolleyes1

Sounds great! I'm glad you had such a nice trip.

Hi all! :wave2:

I haven't posted probably since Thanksgiving and will admit I only went back 10 pages to kind of catch up. Hope everyone's Christmas went well.

Denise, I hope your day goes OK. Our relationship is not that bad yet with the ILs but is has its moments (beginning with them buying every toy under the sun for Kyle- even the ones DH told them we were going to get at the next holiday- but I won't get into it)

Congrats to Kevin and Amy on the baby!!!! If you are 12 weeks pregnant and you were in WDW about 3 months ago does that mean you brought back your own little souvenier?????? ;) (about the diaper rash, try Aquaphor)

Welcome back Claire- 3 weeks at WDW- Wow! How do you ever come back to reality after that? We spent almost 2 weeks down there for our honeymoon and it was very hard to come back home!

Like I said I only went back 10 pages so I am probably missing tons more!

Christmas was fun here. As you can see from my signature, we have decided on our dates for the next trip to "Kyle's Happy Place!" Dec 10-17 '06. The in-laws are coming with so I am not so sure what to expect there...
Santa brought me Photo Impact so I am very excited to start experimenting!

Oh, great site for Cookie Cutters is kitchengifts.com- they have hundreds. I use Royal Icing when I frost and they sell it in dry bags there too!

Nap time is over here- puppy needs a potty break and I hear Kyle calling "Mommyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!"

See ya later!

I received a call today asking if I would like to go because mil's dh has decided not to go. Everything is paid for except my food! I am so excited :cheer2: Dh & the boys will stay home, so I will have a chance to view Disney in a different way. I will miss my boys not being with me, but I will get over it :) Dh is not a big Disney fan(I am working on him)but he knows I love Disney & he is very happy for me. I will also get to the chance to stay at different resorts, 3 nights at the Contemporary, 3 nights at the Boardwalk Villas, & 1 night at AKL. I am about ready to burst! I have only stayed at value resorts, so this is really a treat. Well the whole trip is, I think I am still in shock. I just had to share this with you all, oh I need to get planning!

Kate -

Maybe you and your DH need a copy of this:

Ten Simple Rules For Dating My Daughter
Rule One :

If you pull into my driveway and honk you'd better be delivering a package, because you're sure not picking anything up.

Rule Two :

You do not touch my daughter in front of me. You may glance at her, so long as you do not peer at anything below her neck. If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter's body, I will remove them.

Rule Three :

I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys your age to wear their trousers so loose that they appear to be falling off. Please don't take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots. Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue, so I propose this compromise: You may come to the door with your underwear showing and your pants ten sizes too big, and I will not object. However, to ensure that your clothes do not, in fact, come off during your date with my daughter, I will use my electric nail gun and fasten your trousers securely to your waist.

Rule Four :

I'm sure you've been told that in today's world, sex without utilizing a "barrier method" of some kind can kill you. Let me elaborate, when it comes to sex, I am the barrier, and I will kill you.

Rule Five :

In order for us to get to know each other, we should talk about sports, politics, and other issues of the day. Please do not do this. The only information I require from you is an indication of when you expect to have my daughter safely back at my house, and the only word I need from you on this subject is "early."

Rule Six :

I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many opportunities to date other girls. This is fine with me as long as it is okay with my daughter. Otherwise, once you have gone out with my little girl, you will continue to date no one but her until she is finished with you. If you make her cry, I will make you cry.

Rule Seven :

As you stand in my front hallway, waiting for my daughter to appear, and more than an hour goes by, do not sigh and fidget. If you want to be on time for the movie, you should not be dating. My daughter is putting on her makeup, a process that can take longer than painting the Golden Gate Bridge. Instead of just standing there, why don't you do something useful, like changing the oil in my car?

Rule Eight :

The following places are not appropriate for a date with my daughter: Places where there are beds, sofas, or anything softer than a wooden stool. Places where there are no parents, policemen, or nuns within eyesight. Places where there is darkness. Places where there is dancing, holding hands, or happiness. Places where the ambient temperature is warm enough for my daughter to wear shorts, tank tops, midriff T-shirts, or anything other than overalls, a sweater, and a goose down parka zipped up to her throat. Movies with a strong romantic or sexual theme are to be avoided; movies which features chain saws are okay. Hockey games are okay. Old folks homes are better.

Rule Nine :

Do not lie to me. I may appear to be a potbellied, balding, middle-aged, dimwitted has-been. But on issues relating to my daughter, I am the all-knowing, merciless god of your universe. If I ask you where you are going and with whom, you have one chance to tell me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I have a shotgun, a shovel, and five acres behind the house. Do not trifle with me.

Rule Ten :

Be afraid. Be very afraid. It takes very little for me to mistake the sound of your car in the driveway for a chopper coming in over a rice paddy outside of Hanoi. When my Agent Orange starts acting up, the voices in my head frequently tell me to clean the guns as I wait for you to bring my daughter home. As soon as you pull into the driveway you should exit your car with both hands in plain sight. Speak the perimeter password, announce in a clear voice that you have brought my daughter home safely and early, then return to your car--there is no need for you to come inside. The camouflaged face watching you from the window is mine.
My dad was pretty good with my boyfriends when I was growing up. However, there is a story that his sisters tell about when they had some boys come over to take them out. There were 13 in my dad's family - 9 girls and 4 boys. Dad was #3 but he had 8 sisters before he had a brother. The story goes that one day three of the sisters had boys come to take them out. Dad met them at the door with a gun - this is where the story changes based on who tells it. My dad says it was a toy gun that looked like a toy gun. Others say it looked real, or sounded real, or both. Dad says he made some smart comment like "What are your intentions?". Others say, he shot the gun over the boys heads and they fled to the car. We'll never know the real story. I was just glad that it happened to my aunts and not me! I know for years I was afraid that he would do something like the 10 rules.

You and I have the same tastes, Amy. John Schneider was a big crush of mine, too. I never liked Ricky in Silver Spoons and thought it was insane when the cast him on NYPD. But he was great in that role and I fell in lust with him. Another of my crushes was Greg Evigan, from BJ and the Bear. Now I know I am really showing my age.

You revealed your age in your trip report! :teeth:

I never watched NYPD before Rick and I stopped watching after he left. Actually, I never watched his last episode...just couldn't deal with it. ;)

I'm assuming y'all have been behaving! ;) I've been home since Fri night but have been so busy.I haven't gotten a chance to catch up on here yet tonight but I wanted to say hello to all of you. :wave: I have missed keeping up with everyone.I hope everybody is well and had a very Merry Christmas.

We went on an unexpected quick trip and spent one day at WDW.Joe was doing some work in Florida so Erich and I drove down to get him.We stayed with our friend who works at WDW.My cousin who couldn't take my Mom in Oct. took her for 2 nights for me,so I didn't have to worry about her. :cool1:

It was unplanned and quick but we had a great time for our day at MGM!
This is where we were last Thur night!

I kept my eyes open for DDAers but didn't spot any.This trip came about so quickly I couldn't even make shirts for us but I ended up bringing the cold weather with me so I wore a jacket most of the day there! :rolleyes:

Anyway wanted to give y'all a big holiday :grouphug: I hope I'll have some time later this week to catch up.

How awesome. Aren't the Osbourned Lights fantastic? Glad you had a good trip. We missed you.

Wrong, I just said he was a Hardy boy. David, his half brother was the Partridge, silly! :teeth:

Amy :)

I loved Shaun Cassidy. I still remember getting his 8 Track for a present and flipping out! The Hardy Boys were awesome.

Too funny. As they say, you can't pick the family that goes with the man. Isn't it amazing all these guys turn out as well as they do?

yes it is.... sometimes I'm shocked! his brother is actually close to perfect, too :rotfl:
