Is anyone a video expert? We need to create a video with subliminal messages to play for our wives. "You always want to go to Disney World"

Spamalot was pretty darn hysterical. I saw it on Broadway 3 times. Too bad it's closed now, because I would be back in a heartbeat the next time I'm in NYC. There is a touring production, but it might be near the end of its' run as well. But if you ever see it coming to a city near you, and you like Monty Python - go see it!

Give it about 2 years until she see's your son go absolutely bonkers when he see's Mickey. The look on my son's face was all it took for us to agree we are doing this as often as possible until he grows out of the whole character thing (which I will do my best to make sure never happens).

I think the thing that really sold us on DVC was the fact that when he is married and has kids we can pass it over to him.

That's what you think now but when that time comes you will probably still want to use it. "Sorry son, I know we told you you could have it but your mom and I are keeping the DVC"

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: For the experiment to be a success, all of the body parts must be enlarged.
Inga: His veins, his feet, his hands, his organs vould all have to be increased in size.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Exactly.
Inga: He vould have an enormous schwanzstucker.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: That goes without saying.
Inga: Voof.
Igor: He's going to be very popular.

Since he's only 4 right now I have a bit of time to work it out. I figure in 18 years or so I will be retired from my current job and ready to head down, hat in hand, and ask the mouse for a job. Plus by then I will probably have added on enough points to cover a two bedroom or larger so there will be stipulations on handing over the contract.

By then you'll be the grandpa known for handing out money and taking the grandkids to Walt Disney World... you won't give it up easily! I know I won't! For DW and I, it's pretty much going to as a result of our deaths. Otherwise the kids will be able to come along with us, possbily be given points (or rent points from us at a great discount) - or here's a novel concept - get their own darn points!
