ok, I'm letting Diane respond to Ponzi's comments, going back to work now.
Not sure if I'll have a new one ready tonight, I may, but I want to get out there and burn up some cheeseburgers before it get's dark.

Chapter 13, What? Me Worry?

Know what? Throwing up sucks.

Yeah, let's just jump right in, shall we?
Why beat around the toilet seat?

But you know what else?

Sometimes, when you don't puke in the time tested, history confirmed regular toilet, and end up usually through no specific choices that you yourself made, resulting in new and unique venues where the regurgitation took place, can sometimes be interesting in the unexpected results.

Fer example,,,, ( you knew this was coming, right?)

When we were 17, my two buddies and I hid in my friend John's boiler room of his apartment building.
It was still early, a Friday night, and we had a fifth of vodka,,, 750 Ml to you Canadians, and just passed it back and forth until it gave up the ghost. I had brought a little bottle of orange juice which also got passed back and forth, until,,, um,,, uh uh, I don't want anymore of it,,, too much backwash probably now in the little bottle.
Sorry guys, I love you,,, but,,,,,,,,,you can have the rest.
Remember that bottle of Strawberry Hill you passed around the group in the woods at the church picnic?
And there was ONE guy who didn't mind that last "gulp" of ick at the bottom of the bottle.

So, we finished the bottle and we were about to head on out for th night to a party that we knew would have no drinks, probably, but my one friend lost it.
Too much wodka, too fast, not enough mixer.

It was then that we all witnessed the most amazing thing!

Like I said, it was early still, and we had all just finished ddinner with our families before meeting up.

Other Buddy John,, yeah,, they were both name John, had spaghetti and meatballs that night, only, he never told us that.

He didn 't have to.

He threw up in one of those big solid steel double sinks you find in basements.

But it was how he did it that was amazing:

First, the spaghetti came out, piled itself in a neat pile
then the tomato sauce, lovingly poured over the spaghetti
and finally the meatballs which looked like they hadn't even been chewed!
Two of them, all that was missing was a plate under all this.

Not kidding, it looked good enough to eat.

Again.

Other John and I looked at each other and said,
"What? No garlic bread?"

Now do you believe me? that,,,

Sharing is overrated.

Back to personal puking though:

I hate doing it with an unmatched passion, probably because I can't just do it once, I'm in there for 20 minutes gagging usually.

I once in my previous trip report got all over a guy I called the human volcano who went off like Krakatoa ,sitting at a table at Columbia Harbour House for not running to a restroom in time, saying, "who doesn't know this is coming?"

Well, I didn't see this coming at all and didn't totally make it in time and we'll just leave it at that.

I didn't know what to do now when I was finally done.
Funny thing was, I was hungry!
Not really sure what I just threw up since I hadn't eaten yet today, but no kidding, I'm hungry now.

I was also really tired after the workout I just gave my stomach and chest.

I think I'm going to be allright now, but driving over to the clinic was out of the question, they had the car at Animal Kingdom, and I'll be damned if I'm going to ruin their day over there and call them back home for this.
"Grandpa threw up, we have to leave now."

I went back down to the table and collected all my stuff, thereby releasing the table back into circulation, then went back up and closed all the drapes, turned off the lights and lied down.
I think I might have dozed off, not sure, if not, then I really need to get back and study the Bear's playbook, but the next thing i really remember was the door opening and Smidgy walking in.

I guess Cutler's going to have to wait.

A very surprised Smidgy to find me lying there in the dark.

I lhad no choice but to tell her how I entertained myself today, but she wasn't as concerned about the head/vomit connection since she didn't hear the EMT say that to me, or had read all the articles lately in the sports sections on athletes and concussions. And oh, she wasn't with me either when the life guard Adam mentioned it too, and I was NOT about to pick this time to enlighten her about it.

I was feeling though pretty good now, even my headache wasn't as bad as it had been, and I really wanted to have some fun myself. I told her this as well, and when she made her move I stopped her Immediately;

"No, that doesn't mean I want to play Yahtzee!"

So there I am, facing that decision that all of us will have to make at some point in our lives;
It's inevitable, sooner or later, like buying life insurance, we'll all probably have to make this decision:

Go to the hospital, or make a manhattan?

(boy, you can almost see the tag fairy licking her chops now)

Well, I didn't go to the hopisital.

After convincing her I'm ok now, we went back down and had our drinks by the pool, which I'm starting to feel as if it's my own, personal pool that I'm just letting all these strangers use.

She then told me all about the day I missed at AK, and it was pretty busy all right. Sounds like the only things they missed were the walking Pangani and the one I can never remember the name of Mitsubishi or something, MaharajaH? starts with an M,, and they didn't do the bird show. I was hoping that they'd join us at the pool, I wanted to ask Jackson all about it, but I guess they were lying down themselves.

So what I got out of Diane was:
Tusker House, meh, way too much money for boring food, and almost no character time, especially for her, she was getting something to eat at the time they came by.

Jackson loved Dinosaur, Primevil Whirl and even EEverest.
I guess the4y all liked the Safari.
But Todd didn 't much care at all for LION KING, or Nemo, the musical. I was to notice that being a recurring theme with him,,, he didn't like almost anything based on music, so good thing I guess they skipped Mermaid and B and the Beast at the Studios.

But I knew it was coming, and sooner or later I'll have to decide about tomorrow, so I said probably.

Thursday is supposed to be an Early Entry day for us at Magic Kingdom, so, ok, I'll give it a shot, no, not going to be trapped in a wheelchair, but since we have done most of the park all ready, then I'll start out with you guys, but no, I'm not suddenly going to be doing Big Head Mountain Blow up, or Tea Cups or the worst ride of all, the Columbia Harbour House Squat and Splat!

Ok, If I'm going to try this again, I didn't want to stay up late, so only had two drinks and then made sandwiches in the room. Yeah, still had stuff left,, baloney, string cheese, our second container of Cottage cheese, did kill off the Cheetohs though, now I'm stuck with the razor blade Doritos.
Which led to another great moment in "Conversing with Nebo and Smidgy" episode 48:

"Steve, you want any Doritos? Should I bring those out too?"

"I don't know, what kind are they again?" Remember when Doritos and Cheetohs and snacks were simple? Now they all have 7 different flavors to decide from also, and I couldn't remember what kind I had bought.

She looked: "Um, well, they're Nacho Cheese" she told me.
First thing to pop in my head was, " Geesh, well, Ok, thanks,
then who's cheese is it?"

I might have used this on her before once, but I did get a laugh this time, and a "Yeah, you're ok now, jokes are as bad as ever."

(Nacho nacho man, I want to be, a Nacho man)
(Arent' you glad I didn't go and work out at a local youth athletic organization?)
______________________________________________

Thursday morning, Early Entry at Magic Kingdom, and I'm Waiting for Godot.
Or Bridgitte Bardot.
Or Homer, (doh).

Now, here's the thing about Early Entry:

You see, early entry means you actually have to leave EARLY! So you can then take part in an ENTRY ahead of schedule.

Remember when Smidgy told you about Tuesday morning, walking past the room trying to peek in and see if they were coming out soon?

Well, we started doing that again today, but then I said I'm not playing this game out here, and went back in and laid down.

Gates open at 8 o'clock, at ten to eight, she comes back in , they're ready to go.

The bus stop was just jam packed, and now the ECVs are lining up like it's the ,,,,, no, not going to say anything, no, no upside here.

A scooter went up the ramp when a bus finally pulled up, five family members then followed her up the back end, (of the bus) then the bus driver signaled for another ECV to go up, which she did.
After he locked her in place, now we see that:
NINE people in her party all clambored aboard using the back door entrance cuz they were with her.

As I was counting them, I,,,, "Nine people, cool, it's the CUBS starting lineup. But the bus is now half filled.
And we havend even strted yet on this huge loin.

Line.

It's like having a bus fastpass and now there is no room for the standby's.

Nope, not off to a good start at all, it's already past opening time, and I'm still standing at Pop Century.

And I told Diane right then and there, I haven't been able to do crap really since Sunday, and today is thursday, I knew I'd be second fiddle, but I'll tell you right now, we've already blown the benefits of early entry today, now it's just going to be more crowded with no advantages or benefits from being a resort stayer and I'm not playing longer than I , or my head, wants to!

It was quarter to nine when we walked onto Main Street.
Even that would have been earlier, but they waited until after the bus pulled up and we all got off for the 10 minute "special effects make-up application" for Jackson, meaning, it was too soon to put the sun screen on Jackson 5 minutes earlier on the bus, it had to be done when they got off.

I had suggested that the first stop should be The Raceway, but that was for getting there when we should.
Well, that was stil the first stop, and even with Early Entry it was already a 30 minute wait. Yes, Jackson only wanted to go with Todd, so no way I'm standing in line out in the sun for the un-steerable cars, I told them I'd meet them out here somewhere.

Smidgy was going to ride it too at first I think, but I think then the nickel dropped in and she realized she would be doing it with Kim, and yeah, so,, and next thing I knew she had joined me on the sideline.

Rather than just wait out there for them, and I"m surprised that by now Kim isn't freaking out being left "outside" all the time, on her own, riding on her own.

Di and I went back and I finally did Buzz for the first time this trip, remember I missed it the first time when they all did it and I was pre-occupied due to internal conflicts?
( you never want the interns in conflicts, it seldom comes out good.)

Even the B Lightyear ride had a shorter wait than the Raceway, after they came out we mosied toward Fantasyland for the first time.
Even the other night when I took an ED, they never did go into Fantasyland, I told them that most of it should be done during Early Entry.

However, somone was blocking our path!
I really wasn't in the mood for trouble, and I was afraid
Push was going to come to Shove.



Yeah, what were the chances? First time in Fantasyland and Push is making the rounds. Jackson was just fascinated by ol Push. I was too, cuz no matter where I went, he seemed to keep coming after me. No idea why.

I thought maybe its' a sexy looking girl running Push this time and obviously is using the trash can to flirt with me, so as I was looking for some primo garbage to feed it, I was looking around for the operator, but no, it wasn't hard to see who it was and it was a guy. Oh well.

After this it was the Carousel, I passed riding it ,followed by, Tea Cups, I passed, in a hurry! , Then it was time to Pooh.

No, not me this time, the ride!
The whole time I kept dreading,
"Come bounce with me" , but it wasn't bad, I was doing pretty darn good today.

I may have the order mixed up a bit, but I don't think so, and if so, it's not worth mentioning.

For some reason I can't remember if we did Dumbo, I don't think we did, cuz it wasn't easy to get to with the road construction going on. But I know we DID watch Mick
and Phil harm magic, not sure why they did that but they did.

Now, outside of the crappy Tough to be a Bug, this is the first real 3-D movie they've seen, it's also one of the best in the WORLD! As in planet!
And you know the results.

Kim looked like she liked it
Jackson was non committal
and Todd was kind of frowned,
once again, this attraction is mainly a musical.
I'm not sure what happened with him once he grew up and left the nest, but for sure, he seemed to have left the music part of life back in his bedroom.

It was right about here that I couldn't help but smile to myself.

After the "shrug" after Philharmagic, and admitting he's not a fan of the songs, we are heading across the street.

:You know what's across the street, right?

Yup, you betchem!

Redemption.
Otherwise known as ;

"Mickey's Revenge!"

At least as it applies in this case.

Even Kim and Todd knew that this HAD to be done.

And I'll bet that we waited in line for IASW longer than I have in 10 years, for us it's always been a walk on.
Not today.

It's a Nebo walk on.
Backwards.
With Crutches.
After 4 manhattans.

You get the idea.

Geesh, the things I have to put myself through just ]
to paint a picture for you all, what a guy!

It was about a 22 minute wait, plus or minus two minutes.

Hey, I was a machinist for a LONG time, old habits and old
"tolerances" die hard.

Yeah, let's leave them here on Small World, thought it was long then? Hey, It might be 4 days before I post an update!

Maybe not the cape. But tights? Yeah, I could see that.

Wouldn't want to.

But could see it.

there you go again,ruining my you know what

That's... odd.

The slide has split apart and there's a huge hole in it half way down.
A guy in a bathing suit runs by to be the guinea pig. He doesn't make it.
Shortly after another guy in a bathing suit runs by. Same result.
Eventually, either night falls and they close the park... or they run out of staff. Luckily, the last few aren't seriously injured since they fall on a relatively soft pile of previously injured CMs.

that was just hilarious!

aw... poor little guy.






Sounds like someone's day was a wee bit better then someone else's.



I believe you. Thanks for the chapter, Smidgy! :
sure, make me feel even more guilty than I already do!lol well, the way I look at it, it isn't going to make steve's day any better if I have a crappy time, right? right?

You're right! I'm glad you had fun in spite of your partner in fun being down for the day.

"Grandpa threw up, we have to leave now."
Not to make light, but... I wonder how many people have died rather than risk embarrasment or through an unwilligness to inconvenience others?

"Hmmm.... chest feels tight, left arm hurts, can't seem to catch my breath, feel nauseous... Probably nothing, I won't bother anyone and just lie down for a bit."

'bit' in this case being 'the rest of your life'.

So the guy who was flirting with you… wasn’t good looking?

With all my being… I’m hoping I’ll never have to ride Tea Cups again.

Ok, I'm very, very late to the party and I was going to be later still because I wanted to get completely caught up before I posted but...seeing all the lines from Superstar meant I could not wait. I never saw the original production (born the same year as it came out) but I am proud to say I saw Tedd Neally do it on one of his final tours (Irene Cara was Mary and whathisface from Styx was Pilate). And Nebo, anytime you want to do a sing-a-long, give me a shout. I know all the words. I work in musical theatre for my career and memorizing the lyrics is part of my job.

Ok, enough of being side tracked. I need to get back to reading. I go away for 6 months and miss a double Nebo trip report that I have 3 days to catch up on before I head to the House of Mouse. I'm so sorry to hear about your accident though. And I can only imagine how Smidgy felt, seeing you go down. But I have to ask - did anyone ever check your pupil reaction to see about a concussion? That's a good way to tell if you have one and you haven't mentioned that thus far.

DH swears that there were more EVC and such this year. I think he just noticed them more. But I have to admit that there may be something to his "perfectly healthy but Lazy" ideas about some of the riders. We saw a Dad walking around EPCOT in a boot and then the next day we saw a similarly aged Dad in a boot lounging on an EVC. And I do understand that walking around a place as large as Disney can be tough with feet issues, but I want my men to be tough, and maybe just a little stupid, and play through the pain.

Of Course, I have a freakishly high pain threshold and expect everyone else to as well.

Well, maybe the vomiting was because of a bad sammich, not a concussion. And I only say that because you're still alive, well, and reasonably un-brain damaged.

I'm with Todd about the staged musicals anyway. Of Course, I had a bad experience in High School when I stage managed a musical about child labor in the early 1900s. Kid's fingers getting burned off in glass factories interupted by catchy upbeat ragtime tunes. REALLY?? Didn't help that I had to hand hold a leading man who was really a dancer and didn't understand this weird thing "Dialogue" Nice Kid, but really.

But I do love me some Phil Harm Magic. And watching kids reach to help Donald.

Ok, Us Artsy trip report MALE writers from Carpentersville can be a tempermental, sensitive group.

Ok, WOULD you believe just the MENTAL part?




Ummm....





Uh, yeah, ok, maybe it wasn't a classy chapter.

I witnessed almost exactly the same thing. Under very similar circumstances.

... and I'd almost gotten that visual out of my mind...


... almost.

Almost everyone I've3 told that story to has said the same thing, only with different food, not going to mention the smoked butt and sauerkraut version I heard.



Not to make light, but... I wonder how many people have died rather than risk embarrasment or through an unwilligness to inconvenience others?

"Hmmm.... chest feels tight, left arm hurts, can't seem to catch my breath, feel nauseous... Probably nothing, I won't bother anyone and just lie down for a bit."

'bit' in this case being 'the rest of your life'.

A co worker, Bob. 42 years old. Had to finish hanging the storm door before all the women showed up later that afternoon for the shower. "Going to lie down for an hour if you don't mind, the door is all done, wake me if you don't hear me up."
right
And it was a baby shower
that they were hosting since they had the most room
for his pregnant wife!
On that cheery note;




Yeah, you've had enough punishment for one trip.

Yes, usually I like to spread the punishment out over a couple of trips, one can only take too much fun at a time!

One of these days I'm going to have to try one of these manhattan thingermabobs I keep hearing about.

Well just take a little detour one saturday afternoon on the way home from the grocery store and stop by and I'll make you one.

Hmm, let's see; the closest I've come to your neck of the woods is La Crosse, by car, although we did get up a bit further north when we transferred to the houseboat part of the trip.
Made it almost to Lake Pepin, if that means anything.

Boy, what a trip report THAT one would have made!
WOW, and right after we were married,,,,, the first time.



Aaarrrgh! I know exactly what I want to say here... and I can't!

Ummm..... Say, "Who's cheese is" quickly and you'll see. Oh, nevermind, I'm not going to try and raise a dead joke.


Ok, I just sat here for 5 minutes sayiing that, in all dialects and accents, to no avail, I'm sorry, guess I let you down.

Or you're stretching a joke concept more than I usually do even.




Never read it or seen it.

Admittedly, I never have either, but I've never read "The Sun Also Rises" or, The Bell Jar either, but I know of them. I think there are books that nobody had read, but everybody knows about.
But back when I was truly a voracious reader as a kid, I could not get enough Hardy Boy books, and then to a lesser degree, Tom Swift.
Heck , when I didn't have those on hand, I would,,,,
shhh, ,,, even borrow my sister's Nancy Drew books.
Funny thing was,,, I'm not positive, but I think they were ALL written by the same author, under psuedonyms.

What I laugh at now remembering them, either Frank or Joe Hardy were getting knocked out from a blow to the back of the head at least every 3rd chapter, and then waking up two hours later tied up in a lighthouse or something. I figure that NOW, they would be leading their group in drooling at the nursing home's dementia group.


Oh, no.
You've connected Bardot and Homer (d'oh)
To you I say, woe.

Just curious; Bardot is NEVER even mentioned anymore, so have you really heard of her? She was a sex kitten in the sixties, and then vanished.

Were you gritting your teeth?

Oh, of course notf.

Grinding.


I actually don’t know where you were going there.

I , um,, well, no,, considered making a derogatory comment about all the ecv users who obviously don't have broken legs, and you can tell why they are in the scooters,,,, and no,,, that's as far as i'm going.

Were the ECVs at the front of the line? Or is there a separate line for them? (I don’t remember)

Whoa, really?
You new here?
Ok,, at the bus stops, ECVs and wheelchairs pull up to the left of the bus stop, which puts them near the rear of the bus when it pulls up. As long as a bus hasn't started loading the folks in line, the driver is going to load at least two of the scooters, (and the people with them) in the back and lock them in, usuallly a bus can only take two at a time.
Then the standby s can get on.

So you can wait in line for a half hour for a bus, but if just as a bus pulls up, so does a scooter with the Partridge Family in tow show up before he starts loading, they are getting on first.


Steam coming out of your ears yet?

Nope, not me. We were invited to join them on this trip, we've seen it all anyway, so what if we have to stand in blistering heat now waiting for things we should have just walked on. Sweating and passing out can be fun! I know!



It’s your party and you’ll hurl if you want to.

"You would hurl too if it happened to you." (Leslie Gore)

Ok, since you started it, even though you more than likely weren't even born yet, do you remember the sequel to that song? Yeah, I know,, Google ruins everything.


I can’t even imagine waiting 5 minutes for Raceway, let alone 30.

Can I grind my teeth again?



No but you can have externs in proflicts… that’s okay.

That just may be an extremely incredibly clever statement on your part, I don't know.

Had you seen Push before? I don’t remember you mentioning it/him in previous TRs.

Yes we have. It's possible the sighting came during non trip report trips.
One sighting I don't think I've written about is the potted tree that walks around the oasis at AK. We saw it I think on either our first or secong time ever there,,,,,,,,,
and Never seen it again. He was walking around in the open courtyard where all the lines form before going through the turnstyles. Don't even know what they call him,,, Bonzai?


Finally! Well I’m glad some Disney magic finally found its mark.

You know, I'm sure that a lot of Pixie dust found it's mark, he just doesn't show it. If it's a show, well, he's ready for it. But if it catches him totally by surprise, like Push did,,,,,,, now we're talkin'!

Probably waiting to see if/when he’d need to call the paramedics.

What I really like about Push, is how He'll try to go up to kids and talk to them,, and they will run screaming in the other direction.
Now, can you imagine an adult version of this Disney character? Huh? Oh c'mon, it's easy.

You want to scare the adults? Instead of a walking, talking trash can,,,,,,,,,,,,

an ATM machine.


So the guy who was flirting with you… wasn’t good looking?

Stifle yourself.

With all my being… I’m hoping I’ll never have to ride Tea Cups again.

I can handle rides likt this, but I don't see why I should want to? I think I last rode this on our first trip there with the kids, and they wanted somebody strong to turn the wheel in the center to spin it.

Not bad.

No, it was too contrived, I almost deleted it.

Ah well… you either get Disney or you don’t. YMMV.
Also, sometimes you build something up so much in your mind that nothing can live up to it.

That happens to me when I meet people from the Dis at Disney, and they have told their spouses about me before we meet, and then when we meet, it's,,,,,
um, Hello? Hello? Where's everybody go?

Wow, that's the first time I've ever heard "Gack" in three part harmony!


A veritable Van Gogh… Wait he cut off his ear… That would make for an interesting TR…

HUH? This isn't good enough? Concussions, bleeding, passing out, throwing up, illness, sickness, blindness, hurricanes, tornados, etc. etc. ? Now you want complete disfiguration and dismemberment?
Well, geesh, I don't know. I'll do what I can, but you know I have to draw the line somewhere, right?
Right?
And I just spent a lot of money on the two hearing aids, and no, they can't be interchanged, so don't count on it for next trip, again, we'll see how I feel then.

Darn, I'm never gonna feel good on one of these trips.


You’ve got a mean streak to you, buddy. Thanks for the chapter! :
You know, even I have to admit, I can skip Small World any time now, I just ride it for Smidgy.

Thank you for posting my FRIEND. Glad to see there's still someone out there that still likes me and can have laughs and still joke with.

Hi Stacy, what a welcome surpise to see you again, especially since everybody else has abandoned me for newer and younger trip report writers, but that's ok, I stil have you and Ponzi.
I still remember that personal message you sent me quite a few years ago, saying how much you liked my reports, and how you looked forward to them.
I kept it, printed it out and still to this day sleep with it under my pillow.

We have also seen good o,ld Ted Nealy along with Dennis De Young playiing Pontius the Pilot, but I don't think it was Irene Cara playing MM.
(That's Mary Magdalene, not M and Ms, melt in your mouth, not in your hands). Didn 't Irene Cara do "I need a Hero" in Footloose, the original one?
We saw the above mentioned at the Chicago Theater, oh, back in circa 1997, or so.


Ok, enough of being side tracked. I need to get back to reading. I go away for 6 months and miss a double Nebo trip report that I have 3 days to catch up on before I head to the House of Mouse.

3 days and your gone there? Great. WHere are you staying? I always want to know that.

As for the pupils, no, I don't remember that at all.
There's a chance he did that when I was still unconscious, heck, he slipped a python on my arm with out me knowing it so he could have, maybe Smidgy knows.

So what do the pupils do that he's looking for besides run around the classroom and shoot spitballs?

everybody hates me,
i guess i m gonna eat some worms…
short fat slimey ones,
long thin curly ones,
see how they wiggle and squirm

Gee, Nebo, a bit touchy these days?

You know I wouldn't leave you for sure, right?. Right?
Well, my response to this update: He still didnt't go to a doctor? I may have to kill him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Glad Jackson enjoyed push though, I still have to see him (surprise!)

Remember me talking about hubby not really wanting to go to the new Fantasyland preview? Two days later he said he got a private tour at 5am from a collegue who works there

PS: I may never look at spaghetti the same way again (and I havent been too fond of it anyway ever since DS went on a vegetarian streak in his teens and we had tons of it. He is 33 now, and I still haven't overcome it)

Harumpf! I have been walking around in a snit for the last 24 hours, but apparently the classic "you are so in trouble Mister" snit that is usually aimed at the old ball and chain works better in person. Apparently a tad too visual to translate in this medium. No hospital! And a Manhattan! As Vencini would say, "inconceivable!". BTW - it was the anniversary of the Princess Bride last week.

One post, and that was for Smidgy. Well, Harumph!
Don't be crawling to me when you want a new Disney fix, I'll be busy with my Good friends over at the Universal site.
Or the Mollusks and Crustaceans and You dicussion forums.
Holy Cow, Mr. Crankypants! It's been a busy couple of days, but really, like Marie said, do you really want to try to hang with mollusks and crustaceans? At least you didn't threaten to leave us to hang with the "spit their insides out" sea cucumbers!

I liked 3/4 of the chapter, the spew portion not quite as much, but that is likely because the "morning sickness"(what a load of manure....it's all day sickness, is still so fresh in my mind with the numerous vomit sessions. I have to agree with you on the early arrival for MEMH, it is critical to get there early to be ahead of the crowds.

I'm really trying to pay attention to all your conclusions regarding the joint family trip so I can try to adjust my expectations accordingly. My mom just let me know yesterday that they will likely only stay for 3 full days plus the late afternoon arrival day. Sigh.....but maybe that will work okay. I'm pretty certain we will not be able to win them over as fans. I can see them coming back and my mom telling her sisters she doesn't see why we like it so much. Oh well, that's what the DIS is for!

DH and I may head down with little buzz two days before my parents arrive. DS and DD may stay with them and help get them motivated to leave early and make minimal stops. I would love to be able to enjoy World Showcase in a leisurely manner so we'll see.

I missed you guys, but hopefully my schedule will be a little better for the next few days at least. Pretty soon, I'll be joining the "late, late night" or "early morning" Smidgy club! Don't you and Smidgy want to make a detour on your way back home from your Christmas season trip to enjoy the fun of the "blitzkrieg" newborn period?

Oh yeah, I have read "Waiting for Godot", "The Sun Also Rises", and "The Bell Jar". I read two of them in high school and one in college.

Still Mr. Crankypant's Friend,

Buzz
