Talking Good Luck!

I'll send good luck vibes to you....


:::::::::::good luck::::::::::

I hope it worked!

At this point, I should get a weekend job at my local Disney store (though not "official" like DTD or NYC), but my job prohibits having a second job. Some sort of wacky state rule.

If you do have one, you must report it to Human Resources and be prepared for a barrage of questions. Geesh.

Though, I did get some good luck and my Photopass CD should be mailed this morning!

Even if I don't do Universal until 1011 or so thats fine with me too. I need a Disney fix. I know this for sure because when we went to see UP today (I loved it BTW) when I saw the "Walt Disney Pictures" pop on the screen I sighed with happiness....it's a sign I need to go back.

Thanks for sticking with me!
You have such a wonderful attitude!

I got the call.... I start TUESDAY!!!!!

I will make a full report back here as soon as I'm back! Hopefully I can ask all my discount questions without sounding like a crazy person who NEEDS to book a trip. LOL.

Yesterday was my birthday so I wrote a mini TR on the Focker Thread I am gonna repost here....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
At midnight when my birthday officially began KC was doing the laundry but he came home with a really nice sappy card and this (which i put on my table runner to be all artsy).



KC worked on my birthday but I had plans anyway. I got up and dressed to meet Pants for some lunch and city wandering. I got a new shirt for the day and was excited to wear it, I really love it. BUT I figured i'll prob forget to be in the pics since I usually take 'em so I tried to get a pic in the mirror in the house of the outfit.



Yea nice try silly....let's try again with no flash and a smile...


I took the train to the city and got off at 42nd street to meet Pants. He was early so I took some pics.



The view up the block.


This is where we had lunch.


It was a nice lunch. We sat and chatted for a while. We both got chicken and shrimp scampi w/ rice. It hit the spot.

Then we wandered towards downtown. I wanted to pick up a book that was coming out that day as a gift to myself. As luck would have it my Uncle sent me a gift card for $25 so i decided to use it on my book. Borders, however, did not have it!

So we hopped on a train and went to Union Square and went to Barnes and Nobles and found it there. I also found something else I really wanted but didn't wanna spend $15 on...but on a gift card on my birthday....



It's a Vera Bradley book cover! I have been wanting one so my books don't get mauled in my purses. I love it!

So we sat in B&N for a while then headed to the restaurant, Max Brenner (.com). They worked out with us a time to come back. So we waited for people to come and got seated around 8pm.

It was a nice spot and of course I took some pics. It's a place that specializes in chocolates. Heaven.





I tell KC to take a pic with me. I say to him "One nice one then a silly one" because he always acts silly in pics and we hardly have any normal pics of us.

This was the "nice" one....


He did it on purpose and didn't tell me, neither did Pants who was taking the pic.

the "silly one", fitting don't you think?


After I got mad and put the camera away he apologized and we tried again.


We ended up being 7 people and 2 late comers. Several people just didn't show. I was unthrilled. Next year I refuse to plan my own party. Nuff said.

Then the food came and I didn't care.

Banana Split Waffles. Ice cream, warm chocolate sauce, fruit. hazelnut pieces.


Holy crow was this good!!!!!!!

We sat until around 10pm there and then said good bye to most people and a few of us went to a bar nearby that you drink free at on your birthday!



One drink and one shot at a time is the rule. I had a malibu bay breeze, a bay breeze and 2 shots called a "redheaded s!ut" (peach schnapps, jagermiester and cranberry juice). I was feeling F-I-N-E.

My last shot of the night.


We left around midnight or so and hopped the train home. I was feeling pretty good! So good I didn't notice the blisters on my feet till I got home! LOL.

But it was a decent birthday over all! [/COLOR]

It sounds like a great time! The dessert platter is calling out to me.


And congrats on starting the job! You're the perfect person for it.

Ooooh, is that a Mary Poppins sign I see?

What a wonderful Birthday!

And Tuesday is just 4 days away! I couldn't help myself. I went to the Disney store nearby and had to ask the CM if she got discounts to WDW I'm so nosey! She just said yes but didn't elaborate.

SO that got me thinking about applying for christmas help but I think the drive would offset any money I made or savings I received
