DC - Congrats on the engagement! Hi to some other familiar faces (Tara, Diva, CT Nurse, and of course, our resident Pirate)!
I understand that its Pyrate. At least that is my understanding. Welcome back and congrats on the house purchase.

Stay safe. It was good reading about your excellent timing this past trip. Awesome.

m in the same boat, lots of woods and above ground wires. We were without power with Irene for 7 days. We didn't have water either, we were able to stay with my Dad who had power and water. I am really worried about Sandy too, but there isn't anything we can do but stay safe. I will be stocking up on wine.
Awesome about the stocking up on wine. If you need anything I can overnight it to you. . .lol. Skip WM. We refer to it as Wallyworld. Kind of a department store and circus all wrapped up in one. Miss you guys all ready. Stay safe. Hugs.

Thanks. I was able to get everything I needed, including wine and snacks. I was surprised that I found D batteries at a gas station when I was filling up my car. Then I said to J let's check Home Depot for propane for our little gas grill, they had 3 tanks. We bought two. The wind is suppose to be bad and they are talking about up to 500,000 people in CT losing power. When we lose power we don't have water or heat. All we can do now is wait.

Miss you too. We will figure something out to see you and Tony. We don't have any trips to WDW planned, but hope to see you both soon.

Our December is booked, we are headed to Las Vegas and Phoenix (for my brother's wedding) for a week. Hoping to see old friends there and welcoming any new friends I just might happen to bump into while there, but January is open. . .Maybe we all need to take a quickie cruise somewhere. . .lol. We need to get out of Florida more. . .lol.

Funny thing is, I knew that, but my phone decided to spellcheck me! Thanks for the welcome back, Darcy. Good to be back.

Hope everyone on the east coast gets well prepared, and weathers the storm safely.

Just want to say to all of those friends in the Hurricane's path, be safe, my prayers are with you. If you need anything, even a place to go because the home, life, business is wiped out for a while, my home is available to you. Hugs everyone and hold on tight.

I've fallen off the radar again, but am really going to try to get back in the saddle for good this time! Seems like I have missed quite a bit over the past few months. I caught a few stories and pics on the old thread from the WDW meet - seems you you guys and gals had a great time! I really would have loved to have been a part of that, but such is life. Here's hoping to make next year's meet.

Life is good here in Cleveland. Finally closed on the new house back in August, am getting deeper into planning for 10 days at VWL in May with family (my first DVC stay), and work has been very busy, but good.

DC - Congrats on the engagement! Hi to some other familiar faces (Tara, Diva, CT Nurse, and of course, our resident Pirate)!
Welcome back stranger!

Cool story on scoring the glasses, Brock. I was down a week before you and they were already gone.

So far nothing here from storm yet. But they have already cancelled work tommorrow and most of nearby schools are closed for two days. Train service in NYC has been shut down. Whiile driving home from PA (Gettysburg) passed four different convoys of tree company trucks from four different states. Hopefully it is all hype, guess we will find out in the next few days. Hope everyone stays safe and gets through this one!

Just back from Spain, weather was nice for two days and then rained HARD for 3 days. I got to see a special showing of the new James Bond film Skyfall last night, good movie. Since my Company has some product placement in the movie, they rented out an entire movie treater last night. Overall, good movie I would recommend it.

I need to prepare because the movers show up on Monday and by the end of next week I will be living in Germany.

Hope the Hurricane/Tropical Storm misses everyone on the east coast.

Have fun with the move... and I'm glad you like the thread name this go-around.

On 10/12 on the way to hit the Boardwalk for the DIS meet (already had a few beers in me by this point) I stopped by Mouse Gear in Epcot. As I was checking out the reto gear and some left over 30th merch, I asked a CM about the shot glasses as I didn't see them. The CM mentioned that all the boxes sold out immediately, and there's currently no more stock Since I had a few brews in me, I started up a nice conversation with some folks in the store who may (or may not) have been CMs (I won't confirm or deny in case any potential CM rules were broken). After some talk of my love for old school EPCOT, one of the gals told me that there was a rumor of a few more 'toothpick holder' sets and if found they'll be put up for sale. She took my cell # and said she would text if anything popped up. Sunday 10/14 I got a text early afternoon that some glass sets have appeared. I headed on over to Epcot and got my prize (along with a couple Unibroue Ephemere brews from Canada):




Another case of great timing! By Sunday evening they were all sold out again.
I picked up a couple shirts (on top of all the ones they offered on the Disneystore.com which I already had ordered), some pins, and my favorite.... the SpaceShip Earth Iphone Case. I thought the case looked cool, and I could feel how the SSE Panels actually had shape to them since I could feel them thru the packaging.....But when I opened it to put on my phone? "Limited Edition: 300" Holy crap!!






Hmmm...notice your 'Toothpick Holders' don't include my favorite pavilion's Icon. (I'll give you a hint, look at my avatar pic)

After some 'hair of the dog' Saturday morning, I had a great time at the F&W Fest day on through Jellyrolls. Also had fun Friday night up until a missing time incident that I'll just attribute to alien abduction. For the DISers I met, If you're near Philly on the I-95 corridor, you're always welcome to drop by Casa de Brocktoon!
Think It was Stitch's Fault??

I love to cruise. Doing a non-Disney (Carnival) over T-giving break with a bunch of family (a sort of reunion thing), then DD and I go on a quickie 3 nighter on the Disney Dream over our spring break in March (after 5 nights at WDW of course)! I am excited for being with extended family on Carnival, but even more excited for March and the Dream with my girlie-pop...

Should mention, March 14-17 for the cruise if anyone wants to join. I could do some kids club nights to have some free time without the cutie!

Well, central MA seems to have missed the brunt of the frankenstorm, although it looks like the eastern part of the state has lots of folks with no power. Nothing to compare to the pics coming out of NY/NJ.

Okay, if we all have a desire to cruise, what month or time of year is good. I would be happy to organize.
