Congratulations Brenda for your trip report being named "Thread of the Month" by the DISboards podcast!

And thanks to Rob for posting the link. I've never taken the time to watch a podcast before but I watched 3/4 of this one until they got to the top ten.


Brenda, your personality and writing style just draw me into following your posts. Besides being informative you are just zany enough (I mean that in a good way) to make your reports so much fun to read.

On a side note, why can't Disney make a Magic Band in a color similar to these last two paragraphs?

CONGRATULATIONS BRENDA!!! party :

Smiley overload. It had to happen.

I have loved getting to "know" you and Em through your TRs, and you have been so sweet to me and all the other readers of this TR, so you deserve all the praise in the world. I definitely made a good choice in joining in the fun

Can't wait to continue reading about your adventures!!

Way to Go Brenda. Love your reports.

I only wish I would have discovered them sooner. Your TR's are addicting and make it hard to close the browser... you just have to have a little more.

Aww thank you for that Kathy!!! Your post also made me think of 2 things...

1) Of course I HIGHLY encourage everyone to watch the whole thing because the Podcast team are great! But if you're pressed for time, the Top Ten countdown starts around the 38 minute mark. I also edited my original post for that purpose and also to mention that I believe that this is indeed the OFFICIAL Thread Of The Month due to Jess' report being considered in a class all its own.

2) YES!!!!! I want purple Magic Bands too!!!!!

Not only is Brenda a great trip report writer, she is also a GREAT DIS friend.

Brenda and her husband sent my husband and I a gift which arrived today (we lost our beloved dog last week after 15-1/2 years) to cheer us up.



There were lots more of these in the box.

Brenda, I knew when we met in August that you were someone special. Thank you for being a friend and thank you and Michael for your thoughtfulness in giving Mark and I a reason to smile.
