I can't believe I just read this for over an hour and you still haven't actually made it to Disney.
I love reading your report Teresa, it's so entertaining.
I'm sorry about all the trouble that has found you.

Trouble makes life fun! And a TR halfway interesting!!!

Ok, my wedding day.

As I've said, Brian was late for E V E R Y T H I N G!!! He once promised me up and down that he would NOT be late for our date. Well, he walked in 3 hours after he had promised to pick me up! I wouldn't look at him. He took my picture, but I can't seem to find that album at the moment. Just picture me really skinny, tan, blue Tarpon Springs shirt on, with a perm. Not a real bad perm like the unfortunate perm of 1982, I actually liked this one.

Anways, since he was always late, I joked around that he would be late for our wedding. Yeah, some joke.

I myself am QUITE punctual, I had my wedding dress finished the morning of the wedding.

His college buddies, aka: groomsmen and bestman, were staying at our future home with Brian. So, they were suppose to get him to the wedding on time. It was half of their job. How could they mess that up?? They had two things to do.

1) Get Brian to the wedding BEFORE the wedding was suppose to start
2) Escort people to their seats
Simple? Right?

Brian was suppose to be at the community center (where we were having the wedding) an hour early. So, 1:00. I didn't actually expect him there at 1:00, but I really did expect him there by say, 12:58. My mother was NOT pleased, because not only was Brian not there, the groomsmen/ushers were not there to seat people. So, who had to do it? My MOTHER! Fabulous guys, just fabulous.

I really wasn't all that worried or upset about Brian being late, honestly it wasn't exactly unexpected. But, I tried calling around to figure out where he was. By the time I called, no one was at the house (soon to be our house). I should mention that our house was about 35 minutes from where the wedding was. So, he would have been in SOOOOO much trouble had he actually answered that phone at 1:05!

People kept coming up to me and asking if i was "ok". I really was, slightly miffed, but ok.

Finally! i got the word that Brian had showed up, with his groomsmen! of course, he wasn't quite dressed yet! And the "photographer" (quotes because he had no business calling himself that) had to get pictures of him getting ready.

yeah yeah yeah, whatever.... let's get this show on the road!

Apparently, when Brian walked in, my cousin (the one I hate) walked up to him and said, "We are just waiting for the groom, he's late." To which Brian replied, "Well, that's me!"

After the wedding, I quizzed Brian about what the heck he had been doing!

Apparently, he needed to do his L A U N D R Y!!!! And, buy black socks!
WHY neither of these two things occured to him BEFORE an hour before our wedding is a mystery to both Brian and me! He has never packed his own clothes for a trip since that day.

Oh, and since we didn't have a washer and dryer, he had to go to the laundrymat to do his clothes. Now where would a logical man go to do his laundry? The one that was right in the town where he lived, or the one in the town where he was getting married, 35 minutes away????

Anyone care to guess???

Yeah, he did his laundry at the laundromat that was right next to the community center, where our wedding was. Which, would have been ok. BUT after he did his laundry, he drove BACK HOME! And THEN had to drive back again for the wedding!!

He makes no excuses and has no idea why he did that either. I think it might have been aliens.

Very punctual, you are! Actually, you have been very punctual for the last few years. I want you to know that I've noticed and appreciate your efforts!

Mom should have let the people seat themselves, or asked someone else to do it. She had enough on her plate!

Why on earth was George even at your wedding??? I guess he wasn't in prison yet.

Yes, definitely aliend.

You know, at the time, it didn't seem like a big deal to me. I guess it's because we both knew he was going to show up, he'd just be late. I never considered that some of the guests might have been thinking he wasn't coming!

Decided to join in since you pimped out your TR on the Disboutiquers thread.

I've only read the first 2 pages, but looking forward to reading more.

Your description of yourself describes me perfectly. Except I'm 37 and growing up we did not go to Disney every year for 1 day, but we did go several times.

Before, I met Brian I was much more punctual, then it really didn't matter since he was ALWAYS late! Thank you for noticing my timeliness of late! (and that sentence just makes me giggle! )

George was not yet in prison.

It didn't seem like that big of a deal to me either! Funny how it didn't dawn on me until later that people thought I would be worried the he wasn't going to show up! I knew he'd be there, I also knew he'd be late! I didn't think he be quite THAT late. But, it has all worked out ok!

1900 Park Fare (breakfst with Alice and dinner with stepsisters)
Akershus
umm... some Irish place in Downtown Disney that Brian picked out.

Heather isn't doing some Irish place in Downtown Disney that Brian picked out, she's doing Crystal Palace instead.

That would be Raglan Road. Sounds really good.

So you ARE going to the parks now? Otherwise you couldn't do askershus.

I was wondering how you could go and do no parks.

Enjoy Pop Century, we REALLY missed it this trip. Sniff.

Some Irish place in downtown Disney?! You better hang up your DIS shoes now for not knowing the name of the restaurant!

Glad to see you are still updating - for awhile I thought you abandoned this TR.

You need to write a TR for the next trip so we can see photos from Corey's new camera. What kind did he get?

I KNEW you would help me out with the name of the restaurant!
We were always planning on one park (since we had to buy one park day to get free dining). Although, I think we were debating saving that for our next trip. We really love Epcot so we decided to make it our one park. We need to pack a lot of fun into that day!

Unfortunately, I very rarely remember the names of ANY Disney restaurants!! I know, I know, what kind of Diser am I!

Don't worry, I wouldn't abandon a TR, that's not nice. I've just had a lot of stuff going on here lately.

Corey got a Canon Rebel T1i. Oh yeah!

My Dad paid for half for his graduation present and Corey earned the other half babysitting the neighbor kids this summer. Of course, now he wants some more lenses...

At least you actually know the name of the Disney characters!


I have a wedding story. My brother was late to his wedding. Really late. Like...after it started.

He lost his shoes. And he wears size 13. So...five shoe stores later, he still didn't have shoes.

I believe some really nice, big footed person gave Martin a pair of shoes to borrow.

My dad made some comment like, "I guess he got cold feet."

Martin will never live that down!

Well - I've read through page 5 now. (Actually I put that for me, so I know where to start back on.)

Your kids are really cute.

I should have multi quoted because now I can't remember what I wanted to comment on.


I think the kids should have put the last baggage sticker on you, so you could cover that green gunk. I would have had to change shirts.

Who knew there were so many armadillos in Florida.

CiCi's would not have been my choice, either. I loved the wrapped around the finger story. Sadly it is the same with my kids.

Too bad on the DVC thing. So I have to ask. What happened? When we did the tour, dh talked them into giving us gift cards instead of the fast passes. Just fyi, in case you decide to do the tour again.

Tell Corey he made a great choice! I am on my third Canon rebel - second digital one. I have the Xsi. Too bad you guys live so far away - I would be happy to pay Corey to babysit to help support his camera passion.

1.) Does knowing character names and pretty much where every bathroom on Disney property is located make up for the fact that I only know a few restaurants?? (and those are all character meals...)

hello!!!
You like my armadillo or tire game?
If you check out my other TR, the purple link, you can read all about it. It's the installment right after we go to Animal kingdom.
Hmmm, I may have been persuaded to tour again for gift cards!

I will tell him! He did a lot of research on it before he made his decision. He let me take a picture with it today! He was showing me how the face detector thing works. Very cool! I wish you lived closer too! He was trying to convince me that he NEEDS a 50mm lens now. I told him I NEED to pay the taxes on the house!
