Congrats on winning the lotto, Glenn. I'm so glad it worked out.

Great pictures as you strolled for your coffee.

Photo stroll, procrastinate from working out, same difference.

So let me get this straight. Every morning, you'd get up and go off on a mission to procure a drink that you expect to hate???

If that ain't addiction, I don't know what is.

Well, at least you weren't taking pictures inside the restroom.

Hopefully the second night is more successful than the first!

Sounds very uplifting.

Otherwise known as the "Procrastinate To Avoid Working Out" stroll.

(And don’t call me ‘Shirley’.)” But instead he said, “Yes it is.”
Say what?!

Oh, and Airplane.

They swapped it out for Dunkin Donuts. He's just contractually obligated to say it's Nescafe.

As for me, I don’t remember winning anything like that in particular, but I won Judy’s heart , and maybe that’s what she was thinking of.
Awww. Too bad she doesn't read this, and therefore you won't earn any brownie points.

Outwardly, I said “Here”, and tried not to celebrate too much in front of those who were still hoping for a spot.


Nice! Excellent work on the animated gif's. This could be the only lottery you ever win.

Now let's hope you see some turtles!

Hi Glenn. Since I came out of lurkdom on Mark's TR to grab one of his movie quotes, I thought I'd say "hello" over here too.

I totally remember reading The Lottery in school. It made me so sick to my stomach I thought I was gonna puke right there in Mrs. Fain's 2nd period English class. And, yes, when I watched The Hunger Games, all I could think about was The Lottery and my mind was just screaming "WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH THESE PEOPLE?!!!!". (At least Hunger Games ended a little better for the main character.)

So. Gut wrenching, mind boggling literature aside... I just wanted to say and let you know that I'm along for the ride. I hope your second turtle walk is more productive (or REproductive) than the first!

I don't know what made me smile more... the fact that you won the lottery, or the video clips you chose to show your internal celebration!

Sure hope the turtle search is more successful than the previous night's!

Three great updates, sorry I was behind.

The kids did do a great job on their necklaces. Danielle would have loved that too. It's really great to see all the activities they offer. It reminds me of "Dirty Dancing", always something to sign up for.

Lots of good information on your first turtle walk, sorry you didn't see a turtle nesting. I'm thrilled you got in the lottery. I really enjoyed your celebration clips too.

I also got a letter from Jordan. I need to make some time to write back.

A great update you do seem to have good luck, or maybe it's some Disney magic either way, what a great start to the day!
