I can do Sundays as long as I know a bit ahead of time. Just need to make sure I get the afternoon off from my part time job.
Excellent! We'll have to move this over to the Lapuette thread and see if we can pick a Sunday that works for everyone.

You know...I am starting to think it's a conspiracy. The nights I go to bed early everyone becomes very chatty. *sniff sniff*

I am really glad things are starting to get better after the BOOM. It sounds like you and DH were getting a system that worked for you and little nugget. The description of the picture your DH took made me laugh hysterically. Men. Pfffft.

That is a really good picture of the totem pole! Much better than any that I got. I am so upset that I forgot about the turndown service. How could I forget that?! It just proves to me that I really do need everything in list form because if that had been on my itinerary list then I wouldn't have forgotten!

I'm curious about the turn down policy. Do you need to arrange for that ahead of time, or when you get there? I think I could use with a little spoiling like that on my next trip!

I'm doing my replies in parts. So I don't forget what I want to reply on. Because my brain hasn't yet recovered from Disney/re-entry/stupidhousestress and is still on hiatus.

I'm sure you don't mind.

TOTALLY reminded me to tell you, since I didn't in my response to your e-mails that yes the color I had on is still available and it's called "And This Little Piggy" by O.P.I.

Carrying on...

Oh, and DS would've been best friends with the little girl on our flight who kept toddling up and down the aisle with her daddy without her shirt or left shoe.

Peach Bellinis from Italy also taste better on vacation. But more on that in my TR. LOL

Until Lara goes. Because she's the official food pornologist.
No worries, folks. I'll also supplement TKs lack of food porn with all the food porn I collected on our trip.

You know.

If I ever get that TR started.

(Tick, tick, tick...)

But at that moment, I didn't know what tomorrow would bring. At that moment, vacation felt so good. It's that feeling I wish that I could bottle and take home with me. It's that feeling that brings me to tears now as I write this. That feeling that you only get when you have all that hope, and all that possibility before. Before the real world comes crashing back in.
Dude. I'm totally a blubbery mess right now.

So I might be able to think of a string of words that do include Dole Whip but are decidedly, um, different that, to yours truly, would be the best words ever, but this is the DISboards and I like being able to post here. So I shall refrain.

More catching up to do!

Half the time on rides or at shows, I would watch him instead of the ride. Because that face is priceless, friends, and it doesn't last forever.

Oh. You mean the one where I bought my favoritest strawberry candy ever? And where they keep all that sake you can try for $5 a cup? And where, for the first time in your life you can taste what a wine-pickled Japanese plum tastes like? I know EXACTLY what room you're talking about.

Proving we are a little bit weird.
Now. Wait. We ARE discussing the BEVERLY right??? I made Missy try it. THAT photo is priceless. But then I tried it too. And have discovered something CRUCIAL.

It's not the taste.

It's the AFTERTASTE.

No wonder it's a "palate cleanser". Your taste buds up and leave your mouth in protest after a sip of that!

Well now I'm totally disappointed!

I thought for sure the ticking time bomb was of the intestinal variety. I was positive we were headed for a post-Teppanyaki type explosion. But I have been DENIED! No #4 for me! Now, I'm saddest ever.

Here's the thing about kids going monkey-ape in Disney World and the idiot oblivions who scorn you with their eyes.

Pee on 'em!

That's right. Pee all on 'em!

Unless your name is Mary or Joseph and you lived 2000 years ago, your child has melted down at some point. Every kid melts. Not always at Disney. But somewhere, sometime. They're kids. I'm not saying I like to see it or listen to it when I see it happening, but I undertand it's going to happen. More so at Disney World. The only thing I look for is to see whether Mom and Dad are on top of it. You know, offering bribes or threats.

So I have abandoned any sense of embarassment when my sweet little angels act like turkeys. We deal with the crisis and dare anyone to criticize us for having normal children. You best believe they'll get a face full of ZZUB if they do.

Ok. So I know quoting someone other than the OP on a TR is, like, a cardinal sin but Z - this made me snort-laugh so hard I choked and swallowed my gum.

Thanks for that, by the way.

I just don't think they could have gotten worse. We'd both hit our own individual walls, and had to move forward, you know?

If those words that you cannot post that I think you're thinking somehow involve the inclusion of a certain devastatingly attractive, witty Captain Jack Sparrow, then we're of a like mind my dear.

And yes, let's not get banned.

Yes, no more odd jokes about similarities to the Horseman.

The other women came later. Mostly at the Halloween Party. When DH was in costume. You know. You've seen.

And thank you. I am a lucky gal. Love the typo! Almost as good as the Princess Bridge.

Quote:
Dear LORD I hope those ring pops I gave him didn't cause you any additional agony. I had NO idea!!!
Actually, not at all. Because the introduction of the ring pop, if you recall, was after he'd eaten almost all of his beautiful appetizer plate, so he had real food in his belly. It's not that I have a problem with candy, per say. I have a problem with candy when he won't eat anything else. Since he'd consumed a fine portion of cheese, fruit, and crackers, I was feeling good.

I swear, Tink, and I'm probably revealing to much, but I don't care, that was one of the best meals he ate on the whole trip, in the regard that he actually consumed a large portion of his dinner. And now we know the secret to dining with my nugget. Signature restaurants. Upgrade to deluxe for next year, anyone?

Quote:
Too bad you didn't watch Tink pick a pearl.
Not that she did.
Or did she?

Oooo, how exciting.

There's an aftertaste?

I must be weird.

Or another plausible explanation is that I had such a fantastic buzz from my one margarita, my tastebuds were pleasantly numbed and didn't notice.
