I can see where you’d have mixed loyalties on that one

LOL.
Look forward to seeing you there.
My birthday is the 25th. Celebrating at BOG the night of the 24th.

We are still waiting (patiently and OK with me) for DS to realize that girls are more than just an annoyance. Late bloomer I guess and more interested in sports. I'll let him know there will be maidens to plunder. (just kidding)

So... have you turned your desk around yet?

Didn't get to make the video this time. Apollo's Chariot is the only one I'd be OK with taking a video riding... and it was down most of the day. AND... so was Griffon... And Verbolten... Got to ride Alpengeist, though! Twice... in 32 degree weather I couldn't feel my nose when we were done.

Alpengeist in 32 degree weather... wow, and some people say Disney is the best when it comes to theming. Busch Gardens must really be stepping up to the challenge.

Had to be a little bit disappointing to have so many coasters down most of the day.


ETA: And no, I haven't turned my desk around yet. They drilled this hole in the floor to run all the cords for my computers and it is underneath the right front corner of my desk. I'd have to rotate my desk from that corner if I ever moved it and there's just no room.

Was doing fairly well yesterday in the tourney and then the Lobos laid an egg. Lost 3 games but I fell for the NM hype and lost an Elite 8 team. My West bracket looks like peanut butter now.

I expect at least one screaming like a little girl video on your next trip. Alpengeist in 32 degrees? No thanks.

I had forgotten the theming on the ride has fake icicles... I thought they were real for a moment!

DD was very dissapointed that Griffon was down. The last time it break down we literally sat in the seat and they told us to get off because something was wrong. I guess this is why they have the pass member preview day.. to work out all the bugs with the pass holders that they KNOW will be coming back.

Just cut the cords... you don't need them anyway.

Yes, very unhappy. We'll adjust. Those 3AM nights were our favorite.

Afterwards heading out to Sarnia for the weekend, I haven't been since Christmas.
Remember.....bend at the knees and lift with your back. There, done. No need to waste 8 hours.

Mini Boys Basketball Provincials for us this weekend. 4 more games for DS and basketball will be finished for awhile. Just in time, school volleyball is underway and 3 weeks of try-outs for Premiership soccer start on Tuesday.

I really need to win that lottery so I can retire and drive him around.
Good luck this weekend.

No. I thought hard about that one, too. Being 10 miles away I wanted to just take them and write it off as favoritism when they lost. Of course logic took over and you see where that got me.

No really. I feel bad your bracket is not well, really. I'l have to check on mine. I think I had NM losing in round 2.

Update: Ummmm.....Just checked and I had them going pretty far as well. What can you do? Looks like your 1 game up on me so far. That Oregon game was a killer. I'm still not sold on them being that strong.

Cute one of Emma. How old was she? But the point of the whole exercise is to hear you scream like a little girl.

Tried to log on and it comes up an error that I am not a member of the group. Did you delete me? Afraid I was going to win? I'll try to log in later, hopefully it is just a temporary glitch.
