That would be a bit weird.

Okay, the mental image I just got of this is priceless.

Can I be greedy and ask for both ?

In my defense Edward IS closer to my age as he has been 17 for a VERY long time. It was so funny, the four of us walked out of the movie theatre and all gave a very big longing sigh at the same time ....there's nothing like mother/daughter bonding over sexy vampires is there ?

I never thought of it that way. We'll just have to call you a cougar from now on. Then again that would make me one too.

I'm a little nervous to post my dates now! I'm afraid of disappointing everyone!

Sticks And Stones, Love.

Alright.

I know I'm a pirate.

It's pretty obvious by now. And I know that once you post something on the internet, it's out there for all to see. And much like spoken words, it can't be taken back.

My feelings were a little hurt this morning. I'll admit I was a proponent in the debate, and I instigated a bit. I know that. Nevertheless, the good captain is something that's very important to me. Pirates is a way of life in this house. And it's near and dear to our hearts. And it's an integral part of the way that I write these trip / pre trip reports.

Which makes it an integral part of me. So what I'm saying is, I'm feeling a little defensive.

You all don't have to love Jack Sparrow as much as I do. I don't even know if that's really possible.

But, without sounding like an absolute wretch, may I please gently remind my lovely readers that this is my pre trip report?

I had a really hard time deciding to write this. I have a lot going on personally, and I'm not even sure if we're going to end up taking this trip. So far, I'm planning on going, but a lot of things that are up in the air right now may prevent that.

And writing a pre trip report is making an emotional investment. And that was very, very, very hard for me to do. I actually timed this specifically to coincide with the ending of A Pirate's Life for Three. Looking to the future, now bring me that horizon. Savvy?

So, if at all possible, can we get this ship steering back in the direction of the details of a pre trip report. Please, please, please, don't take offense. I love you all and our discourse very much. But we have almost five pages, and only two actual posts about the trip. Part of that is my doing, and I apologize. And please, I know it's easy for any of us to sidetrack, but almost feeling like, okay, when do I get to post about the trip?

And if we're going to have a friendly banter, let's try to keep it on the Lapuette thread. I really don't want to offend the mods.

And please remember, I'm only human after all. This tough Jack Sparrow exterior only goes so deep.

Thanks, and my apologies.

~TK~

yes, I like you.

I hear ya on your comments above. I was thinking, though, that your report was so popular! 5 pages already!

I sort of scrolled on past all of the discussion, though, so I missed it. ? Once I get lost, I usually just skip it.

But hugs to you, my friend! It's all good!!

and group hug to everyone else!

Oh, thank you. I didn't mean for anyone to have to give me an ego boost, but that's very nice of you.

Setting Sail

I know you're all dying to know my dates.

Especially since there's no ticker, and I've kept them a secret for this long!

The truth is that I booked bounceback all the way back on my September trip. It's so funny to think that was only three months ago. I was reflecting on that with Tink this weekend. It seems like so much longer, savvy? Seems like I've known her forever, that we didn't "meet" for the first time at Citrico's three short months ago. Isn't it crazy how time can do that to you?

How it can change you?

And speaking of time, and how it changes you, I'm sure you're all wondering not only when we're setting sail but what exactly this voyage is in celebration of.

Because even before Disney revealed that all too relevant theme, oh, dear friends, this trip was in celebration of something.

And that something is a certain someone's as yet unspeakable birthday.

Don't worry. Eventually I'll type out the age I'm turning in 2009. I swear. At some point. That is if I haven't joined Jack Sparrow on his quest for the Fountain of Youth. Oh the fun I would have on a small boat with the good captain...

I digress...ahem.

Anyway, that's why were going. TK is hitting a milestone! And doing it with style. In the World. And that's why the whole family is going.

Now they won't all be there the whole time. Nana is adjunct faculty at a local university, and most likely will not be able to take the whole trip with us. In all likelihood she'll come down for the weekend. The same goes for my father. It's questionable whether or not he'd be able to get that much time off from work, so most likely, he'll be doing the weekend thing as well.

So your core people for most of the trip are me, DH, DS, Mom and FIL. Then Dad and Nana will join us, and that'll make us one big ole happy clan for the weekend.

Are you ready?

Do you want to know when we set sail?

Have I dragged it out long enough yet?

Pirate.

We're booked September 29th - October 4th, 2009.

Oh yes. That's 6 heavenly days in Walt Disney World. At the end of September / beginning of October. With free dining. And MNSSHP. And my favorite, favorite fall decorations. AND FOOD AND WINE FESTIVAL!!!!

Am I excited? You betcha!

Even though I won't be in the World exactly on my birthday, I am stoked for this trip. Stoked. I've already got a tentative itinerary. Tentative dining plans. Tentative must-dos.

So for the trip I really didn't want to be emotionally invested in, I've got a lot planned.

I guess it's time to go get a ticker now.

Yippee! You are going to LOVE Food and Wine! And happy birthday celebration to you! Hitting a milestone and doing it in style.... I think it all sounds PERFECT!

And how on earth did you manage to keep this a secret for three months???

I'm looking forward to planning with you.

I've been to Food and Wine before, but not for a very, very long time. I'm really looking forward to sharing that with everyone, but mostly, my FIL. I think he'll really have a blast tasting all the different little things, and he's a great one to be adventurous with. That man is just willing to go with anything!
