He hosts quite a bit of BBC science stuff, was in an episode of Doctor Who and various other geekster stuff. Basically, they love to roll him out when it's anything remotely physics/science related. Anywho, he and my hubs were the examiners together for a PhD student's thesis defense. I think I was more excited about it than he was. He refused to ask Brian Cox for an autograph for me.
Brian Cox is another hottie!! He's right up there with Kaku.

I'm going to attempt to catch up tomorrow. I had to go to work with the DH today and it got up to 101 F (and this was not a good Dalmation). I mainly had to go with him, because he followed me to drop off the minivan to get the brakes down. They were slow enough this morning that they were able to take them apart and tell us exactly what it was going to cost. The guy was like, "the rotors are fine, but we need to rebuilding the calipers on the front." Basically what I heard him saying was "blah blah record looking thingies are fine. blah blah I have to rebuild this big thingy that looks like a double hook over the record thingies, blah blah more money." All together, we're looking at about $520. Meanwhile I'm in stress mode, but the DH says we're fine as far as money goes.

This weekend is double experience point weekend in our online game, so we'll be doing that a lot. Then on Monday, we're going to celebrate our wedding anniversary by all four of us going to this small waterpark near our house called Hawaiian Falls. Since it closes at 6 PM, we may all go out to dinner together. If I have my way, we'll eat at Babe's Chicken. At the location we go to, you only have a choice of fried chicken (each person gets a breast, leg, thigh, and wing) or a huge chicken fried steak. Then you get all you can eat family style served mashed potatoes and cream gravy (which I swear I could drink), cream corn, salad (which the house dressing is slightly sweet), and homemade Buttermilk biscuits (which are exactly like my mom and grandmothers used to make). Then we'll go next door and get pie from my favorite pie lady.

I am super tired and rambling, so I wish each of you lovelies a good night.

Mousemommy.... for graduation and more money!!!! Which in turn means more Disney I'm with you on the spread out deal of the resorts....while we really like POR....same deal with the buses - multiple stops.



Sue...how's the knee? Hopefully all better. You're trip is quickly approaching I always tell Bill to wake me if I'm still sleeping when he leaves....strange I know I just like getting up before the kids do and getting things done while they sleep.



Koh... I think you'll be fine at CBR. We've looked at those pirate rooms, too. The kids will probably love em'!!! Like Mouse said, it is spread out, so if you are prepared for that ahead of time, it won't be a shock. The pictures of their pool are awesome!!! Get lots of pics and share when you get back


Miss....and one big banana dance for your hubby!!!!!! Awesome news for your family



Kook.....Any Kook sightings lately???? She's sneaking around somewhere


Jenn....any changes???!!!



Shelia...How's Bob doing these days? Hope he isn't giving you a hard time



Wookie....May the force be with you and no extra costs with the van!!!


Janet....Howdy! Howdy! A late congrats from me to your daughter! My sister did marching band and loved it. People don't realize how hard they work....lots of hard work and heat!


Chimo....hope all is well with your son and hubby!



Det....Glad the trip is going well!!!



Who am I missing??? A big hello to Magic, GrumpyG, Basket,


Off to take hubby his laptop. He left it sitting in the den
Heather
Oooooo love the pic! Am I there yet? Just wake me when it's time
Sadly no body needs to wake me today, woke up at 3:30 am and let puppy out, now can't get back to sleep I have 9 for dinner BBQ tonight. May need nap!!

Knee is ok. Still healing. I'm hobbling along, thanks for asking! Starting physio this Tuesday. Have to be ship shape for August!

Awesome!! Suggestion, check out Michaels or AC Moore for a toy treasure chest for DS and DD and fill it with gold coins, and disney goodies, small toys, stickers, etc. Perhaps his last clue can be a treasure map that will lead him to his treasure...bury it or hide it in the yard....inside you can have a note from Jack Sparrow saying that in addition to his gold and other "trinkets' his final treasure awaits him when you all take your trip to Disney in XX days!!



So thankful she's feeling better Jen. I hate it when the kids get fevers.



Willows, you will LOVE WL!! It is SO peaceful



LOVE AK!! and all these rides!! and MK at night!! Oh I do want to be there!



Yes! We waited too I would of anyway but my friend who went with me told me that we had to wait for the surprise.

And Sue do hope your knee is feeling better every day



for DD!! Candance you still have babies... mine are 15 & 21 .. don't worry we will get you thru any blues...
thanks! Starting physio Tuesday so hopefully it will help me getting around wdw in August. Since I'm off work, thinking about doing water aerobic class too.

We just cannot control ourselves.... This is it. I am done...no, really! Done. So it all looks like this: WL CL July 5th-8th...AKL CL July 8th-11th, AKL Pool View July 11th-13th. Then home (sigh.) We leave in 8 days!
Both resorts are totally awesome!!!!! Can't go wrong!

Well, since he has glasses in hand....now he wants to do a cruise, huh?!

Bill would rather do a Disney Cruise than the World (don't let Bob read that ) Bill loves WDW, but a cruise for him is the best thing since sliced bread. That's a tough call, Shelia. What about the Poly first then the cruise next year?? Or cruise first then the Poly next year? I'm already speculating a Disney Cruise for 2015.

Mousemommy...isn't it funny how extra $$ always makes us think DISNEY!! And your baby is growing up...no more kindergarden... I remember that well..even though my "babies" are all grown up.

Pas130..Jeanette?...I haven't seen you on here, but could have sworn I saw a post on another thread? Are you on vaca now?

SueM....So now that I am at CL at WL...are there open balconies there? I think I am on Woods View (thought it might be a tad quieter for hubby...) Any thoughts on room requests now that I've cha changed again? Please tell me I will LOVE CL there!

Oh, and I finally picked up the phone and cancelled September's reservations.....nearly killed me, but I am being responsible..blah, blah, blah. Plus with all the upgrades I've done this trip, it'll be good to get that $$ from the deposit back in the bank!

Ugh, lost my multi quotes it's just too early. Now can't remember who said what so generic replies, lol.

Willow, you'll love WL. As others have answered, CL has solid balconies. So to enjoy view you have to stand. But it's a great resort. Be sure you take the at our if the Lodge, ask at check in about flag family, and if possible take the FW Segway tour!!

Miss, puppy is doing well, I'll be happy when she's totally house trained, lol

To all asking about knee, starting physio Tuesday so hopefully it will aide my recovery.

My plans are still arrival day Pop, followed by 2 nights GF, and 12 nights YC. I had been toying with the idea of switching Pop for either AoA or POR royal room. But now with the declining canadian $ I may not!!

We are 98% sold on CR Atrium CL for next August!!!

Going through our list of criteria, it really meets it all! Poly would be our # 1 choice but the uncertainty about construction is making us go elsewhere.

Heather I have to read up on the cruse they do hold it every year but not sure if it is on the Disney ship every year or if they change plus I guess you watch old movies? Bob said something about old screen stars being on the cruise it leaves Dec 3 which is a month later than our trip this year and I do have credits and points towards flight but paying for the cruise too would be late in the game now.

I doubt I ever get Bob on a Disney cruise if it was not this TMC. He wants to do the Viking River Cruise in Europe too. Silly Man

Well, ideally, I would do 4 and 3...not sure if we can swing that and still keep it around the same price...still trying to do the math...

Oh and the only way DH would agree to a split stay would be if he didn't know...hehehe

Oh I know, Every time I start to worry about the DVC construction happening during my trip I go and price out other options but with no idea what fall discounts might be I know we can't do rack our discount through the TA is just ok plus with the discounted Tix we got thru the TA now that they have Gone up in price too tells me to stay put. I am so confused.

I want bob to love the Poly since he hated it years ago when we did the aloha dinner show but scared if there is construction every where he is going to hate it

Willow, you'll love WL. As others have answered, CL has solid balconies. So to enjoy view you have to stand. But it's a great resort. Be sure you take the at our if the Lodge, ask at check in about flag family, and if possible take the FW Segway tour!!

Miss, puppy is doing well, I'll be happy when she's totally house trained, lol

To all asking about knee, starting physio Tuesday so hopefully it will aide my recovery.

My plans are still arrival day Pop, followed by 2 nights GF, and 12 nights YC. I had been toying with the idea of switching Pop for either AoA or POR royal room. But now with the declining canadian $ I may not!!
DECLINING CDN $$!!!!!! Nooooooooo!!!!!! I've got 19 months to save still!!!! I need our $ near par!!!!! It's hard enough because I've been bit by the deluxe club level bug too, and my next trip was leaning towards BWI!!!! So our $$ needs to strengthen again, YES IT DOES!!!!!

DS's interview went well I think, we're waiting for a security clearance to be done and references checked/ could be a 5 day process or so -- with Canada Day long weekend, we might hear something next week. They did ask if he had a pair of work boots at the end of the interview, so that's a good sign, but we'll have to go shopping for work boots for him if the offer comes through. It'll be an adjustment working night shift (10-6:30 am) mon to Fri/ at least he doesn't have to work weekends. It'll work out till he can save enough for a car too because by the time he drives home, I don't leave for work until 7:30, so he can use our car for now. I am hoping he gets the job, he's 21 and had many struggles, but it's time to start testing the world on his own a little. I'll still be here to support him but I need him to start testing life's waters and trying to find his way. It's so hard when they are not academically gifted and don't know what they want to do! I hope things work out for him because I worry so much. I am so thankful my youngest - my 17 yo- has firm plans to join the military after HS next year! He's a bit more of a go-getter and knows what he wants. I thought younger yrs where hard??? Nothing compared to this time of their life!
Praying it all works out so DH and I can finally start enjoying some of our hard earned money again, lol!!!
