my wife says "just because your on vacation, dont get you out of doing the laundry".
funny story, one year we were at cbr. and there was laundry to do. i do it half way through our trip. i carry the wash over to the laundry room by the pool, all the washers were open so i used 4 at one time to get my chore done faster. it was about 9pm so not many people around. there were a few dryers running. i just hung out, reading the paper. the washers were just about done and here comes three women. the one ask me, wow, how does your wife get you to do laundry? they start giggling. so my washers are in the rinse cycle and i add fab. softener. ok, the giggling starts again. the other one says , oh look lisa, he even fabric softens.
im willing to bet, there were a few guys sitting at the bar that night who got an ear full when there wives got back!!! they were impressed with my laundry tech. glad they didnt hang around for the folding!!!

You and my DH could have a little laundry par-tay. He always does our laundry on vacation too. It is his quiet time away from me and our 2 DDs. He reads magazines and such. I know......I am a lucky gal

oooooh, good tip...packing sporks now on my "to do" list

Borrowing friends park bag and just got it from her yesterday. I will have to make sure the sporks are packed in there.

Do they make virgin Lapu Lapus? Or just anything in that pineapple? My daughter would flip out being able to eat one of those.

Someone mentioned quite a while ago that they got their kids soda in the pineapple (just so they could have a cocktail too!) but that it was quite an $$ soda! It sounded like you could order whatever in a pineapple, but there is a premium.

Yes, they make virgin Lapu, Lapus- but I think they are around the same price. I saw a post - on this thread, I think - where the parent's had bought one for the kids and it was filled with Sprite. My daughter would love it too!

Spork Run!

Spork run last night thanks to the DIS boards! I had to take one for the team and eat at KFC….Not my favorite chicken (no flames please), but in the interest of fully enjoying a Lapu Lapu it was worth the sacrifice.

Thanks for the tip, 9 days to go….tick, tick, tick…..I swear the last 10 days are the worst as planning is done and all there is left to do is wait and pack.
Now I can wish away the crowds and hope for an amazing week at the Poly!

First visit 1976, last visit WDW 2/2010 BC CL and DL GC 12/2010, future WDW 4/2012 POLY TPV, 7/2012 (off site meeting), 4/2013 POLY with Disney Dream cruise!

The school I work at has sporks in the cafeteria so I know where to get them. Problem is I don't like pineapple But my husband does and I'm sure he will appreciate the sporks

On the adult cocktail front I was thinking that the Minute Maid Lite Pom Lemonade would be a nice mixer with some vodka. Fill up the refillable mug and add a shot (or two). Anyone ever try that? Otherwise, I will be sticking to the Longboard beer because I'm not that into fruity drinks.

I *think* Taco Bell has sporks, too...or at least they used to. I'm not a big fan, but DH loves it ~ he'll be happy (and wonder what's up) if I suggest eating there, but looks like I'll have to so I can fully enjoy a Lapu Lapu!

Our Taco Bell does have the sporks but that is because it is a KFC/Taco Bell combo restaurant.

I am SSOOOOOO lucky. My beloved late MIL was really good at laundry and took a lot of pride in it. She could get out any stain imaginable and was very persnickity about everything. We always laugh that she passed on the "laundry" gene to my husband and his sister. They both like to do laundry and have that same carefullness(is that a word?) that they take with everything. I do laundry at home about half the time and he does the other half depending on his work schedule. On vacation he does it all....

My DH isn't much into fruity drinks. but when he is not having a beer, he loves the vodka lemonade they serve at the beach bar.. Don't remember if they called it electric lemonade or ???? but it is good. He has also admitted to secretly liking my Pina Colavas from the bar. If you are playing the role of bartender......vodka with some crystal light rasberry lemonade is DELISH You can buy the singles and shake it up in a bottle of water to use as your mixer before pouring into your mug.

I like the way you think! Crystal Lite singles with some vodka is a fab idea for when I'm the bartender, thanks! Sounds like I may have to try a few other drinks from the pool bar as well. Electric Lemonade sounds like something I would like.

Better pack them in your checked luggage. Otherwise, explaining those at security could get interesting, lol!
