Jim, how could you?! I always suspected he was a player! Do you remember how he had hair back then?

Ok, let me see if I can figure this out. There is a 4 hour time difference between you and me (I think). 20.00 hours I'm assuming is military time, so that means you have to be there until 8 PM your time, which would then be 4 PM my time? Which means you still have more than 8 hours left . Of course, that is provided my math is correct.

So, let's see, what can Maria do for the rest of the day? As per KC's suggestion you can post what you will be doing this time next week!

Better yet, hope the powers that be spring you early .

Today I have to take Paige and her best friend (oddly also named Paige) to Chuck E. Cheese because my Paige is devestated that she will be missing Paige's birthday party on Friday. But next week on this day, I'll be enjoying Palo Brunch, and then what I'm sure will be a lovely party in the Walt Disney Suite.

Yea Terri, sorry. This is for the 1 (yes count it ONE) duty free bottle you get to bring back into the USA from the Caribbean. The good news is, if you scroll back about 500 posts, that DCL is the only line that allows you to bring on board. So it is kind of like the Pot discussion scene in Pulp Fiction.

Its legal to own it, and its legal to drink it if you have it, in designated areas (your room or in a drink of the day reused glass ). Its legal to bring on board -- so long as it is not from Grand Cayman -- but only in a carry on sized bag. Its not legal to buy it onboard and drink it onboard unless it is in a glass from a bar.

For all of the detailed destructions, go back about three to four weeks in the discussion. Some of our mates were looking for FLA shops between the airport and cruise port. There are about three shops between the Cruise Port and Ron Jon Surf Shop in Cocoa Beach, less than one mile past the ship and down US1.

Also, you can bring it back on board by hand from Key West or Mexico, the ship does not accept deliveries of mystery bottles. So if you cannot get it done before you go, you can stock up in Key West. Guessing that Tequila will be cheaper in Mexico, but then again I guessed that Rum would be cheaper in the Caribbean, and Pyrat is 33% cheaper off the shelf in Michigan.

I will actually not be bringing that much on the ship with me, because I will be saving up to stock up in Florence, KY on the way home at Party Town. Many wonderful elixirs in Bourbon country that you cannot get north of the Mason-Dixon line. They keep it all for themselves.

What to do today... We took the posted Navigators and turned them into an Excel Sheet with five columns, one for Family and one for each member, and listed the things that person might want to look into for the day on each tab. That is the other thing I was doing yesterday, instead of putting in O.T. on a Sunday - as a salaried employee, as Christi pointed out.

Today we were looking at the Origami Class, the Cakes and Desserts classes, the Castaway club party, Family Magic Quest at 2p and/or the Suite Reception. Then hitting two Captains Receptions, family disco fever, and the Golden Mickey's Afterparty followed by the Cabaret Show. Oh yea, and some rest and relaxation, too.

To answer my own question from about 750 posts ago, regarding the entertainment not being all Broadway Musicals. The answer is that the Cabaret Shows are each of the entertainers doing what they do best, other than singing and dancing. So that is where you get the juggler, magician and comedian type acts. Disney really is the best of both worlds, Thank's Uncle Walt.

bringing alcohol on board

Not sure if anyone posted this recently, but saw the talk about alcohol

You CAN carry on alcohol onto the ship- you cannot put it in your checked luggage but there is no limit as to what you can carry on. Kristen and I did this in May on the podcast cruise- we had a rolling cooler full of wine and alcohol- carried our own wine to dinner each night, no problem doing that either. You can carry a bottle of wine to dinner and they will uncork it for you, but charge a uncorking fee of $20 I think.
So there you go!
We will be making an alcohol run when we arrive in Orlando on Friday

Cant you tell them you really need to "work" from home today!

I am in the office today too, thinking of how much I have to do at home- as my patients are not showing up today LOL- that's what happens sometime at clinic- so much depends on the weather!

We are not officially involved in the exchange but are exchanging with a few other people.

We are in 2643 and 2645 if you have any extras. My daughter is a HUGE Twilight fan and we already have her Twilight magnet made for the door.
