I bet that was a mixed bag of emotions. I was just looking at some pictures of the damage - and now the mess the snow has made. The article was telling about how they are trying to set mobile/modular homes up for some who lost everything. I am very happy to be where I am right now and will not complain about our 'cold' weather or my crummy home or anything else.
Hahahahaha! (Too bad the guy in the giant Goofy hat sat in front of you and foiled your plan!)

It really was, it was so strange being in the Happiest Place on Earth and seeing everything on the news and on Facebook. Hopefully everybody will be settled as soon as possible.

I can't imagine how stressful going on a trip when the hurricane was headed toward your home could have been.

Looking forward to hearing all about your trip.
Thank you!!!

It was a bit crazy, thankfully everything was ok!!

Don't be steppin' all over me just because I want a good seat. I might 'accidentally' spill the drink that I am not supposed to bring into the theater all over you.
Oh wow, I'm an early riser, but not THAT early!!!

Hahaha did you bring the drink in while walking and wearing your 3D glasses?

Speaking of, I agree, it was REALLY surreal seeing NJ & NY suffer through the storm while I was eating Cheddar Cheese Soup and flirting with foreign CMs in the sunshine. We lucked out. Glad to hear Planty held down the fort well!
I know the storm causing it wasn't a great reason, but it was cool that you got a few extra days at Disney on your trip!! Hahaha I can't even imagine if we had more days, how much more food we would have eaten!!

Viva Planty! He seems like an excellent choice to defend a home. After all, he does have "dragon" as part of his species name.

I can't wait to read more!

Found your new TR today, joining in, Can't wait to read all about your trip and wedding plans!

Love the pic of Planty! It's actually growing pretty well, is it one of those mini plants?

Glad you guys didn't have any damage from the storm.

Messages from the great banana beyond

The morning before our plane left for Disney was a fairly typical process of packing for Wingnut and I. He took a handful of clothes from his drawer, put it in his suitcase, and declared his packing “done”. I had procrastinated in the days before that, so I wandered back and forth from the bedroom to the closet to the living room, alternating between crossing items off of my list and adding items to a shopping list that I had just discovered I needed.

Hey, we all have our methods.

Around mid-day, we (ok, fine, I) said goodbye to Planty, and headed out the door. As with our last trip, we were going to be spending the night at Wingnut’s parents’ house, and they would take us to the airport in the morning, since it is a close drive from them.

On the way there, we stopped for our first food of the trip: Chili’s!

Wingnut: You are not taking food pictures yet. The trip hasn’t started yet. We haven’t even left our state.

Me: Oh yes, the trip has most certainly started. We’ve left home…let the pictures begin!



I’m pretty sure it’s against the rules of civilization to not order the Avocado Eggrolls while at Chili’s. Yes, I know the queso is really good too, but oh how I love the eggrolls.

For our entrees, we ordered a new special, the Chipotle Chicken Fajitas.



These were really good, chipotle-y and cheesy. Not too spicy, which is good since I am a spicy food wimp.

After our lunch, we headed to Wingnut’s parents house. The storm clouds from the hurricane were already starting to roll in.



We got to their house a bit early, and they weren’t home yet. Wingnut wandered into their kitchen, and suddenly exclaimed: “YES! They have bananas!”

(No, Wingnut doesn’t particularly like bananas or have bizarrely low levels of potassium, I’m going somewhere with this.)

We had seen online how someone figured out that if you lightly write words with a toothpick on a banana, they will magically appear and you can write little loving notes or totally freak people out. We had been waiting for his parents to have bananas in the house since we saw this (they always have a basket of fruit in the kitchen), so we could give it a try.

I raced into the kitchen, and found Wingnut excitedly trying to find a toothpick.

Wingnut: What should I write?
Me: I don’t know. Hello?
Wingnut: That’s boring.





I think he was going for a slightly spooky Halloween thing, but all I hear is Roz’s voice: “I’m watching, Wazowski, always watching…



The bananas were a bit ripe, so the words appeared almost instantly. We did a little maniacal laughing, rearranged the bananas in the fruit basket, and wondered what the reaction would be.

A few hours passed, and then Wingnut’s dad approached the fruit. His reaction was a bit underwhelming, more of an “oh, okay.” We all laughed about it, mainly about how long Wingnut and I had been waiting to try out this trick.

Dinner (pork) and a movie (Les Diaboliques) later, we went to bed, excited and ready to head to Disney the next day!!
