You're welcome- and I know how you feel- I was pretty excited when I read that little take-out factoid, too!

Regarding not driving at night, I cannot "see" well in darkness, driving or just walking.

It is no big deal, I just have other folks drive for me. It is just one of those little hiccups we all have in our lives. The plus side, I am never scheduled to teach a night class nor an 8:00 a.m. class.

Opps, edited to add, sushi was very good. It is the first time I have had eel on sushi and I liked it!
Glad to hear it's nothing serious! Oh- and it wasn't just Sunshine Day...it morphed into, "We're gonna keep on, keep on, keep on, keep on, dancin' all through the night!" complete with all the Brady dance moves and hair swinging. Oops...Oh CRAP!!!!

aahhhhhh......great breakfast food porn to start my day!! Great update, Ellen. We LOVE Kona, but I've never been there for breakfast. As you know, we usually do the Deluxe Dining Plan, and I still contend that the best use of 1TS credit on the dining plan is either Le Cellier or Kona.

Great update! Looking forward to Kona breakfast!
Flip flops of pain....... yes, yes they were!!!! I thought Egypt was where the Ditch is? There IS a pyramid there, right?

Love your version of the song, and yes, I'm singing loud and proud right now!!!

Holy updates Ellen! I can't keep up - had a little too much "fun" at my 5 hour lunch with a girlfriend yesterday and still trying to recuperate..... Back to add MY comments later!!!!

Again, it's not "lucky" I thought you were going to try to rhyme in your limerick....... My poor poor puppy......

Great updates Ellen....Just when I thought I could see ALL pictures at work - darn - foiled again. My office computer still has the blocker and I am trying to hide from an ex-patient who is on the hunt to get narcotics. I don't want to say too much except this guy already went "psycho" on me on the phone. Jeckyl and Hyde type personality. Nuf said!

Despite the lack of pictures (which I will view tonight from the comfort of my own home), I love all the fun you are having. Sake flight - yum. So much alcohol I missed this trip cause I had to go back on Flagyl. I really enjoyed the sake there last June. I am sure the food was amazing!

Kona cafe is still on my must do list. I have got to try those pancakes!

Poor Joan freezing her A$$ off on the couch! brrrrrhhhhh! I will say that the temperature was perfect at the WL villas.

We were going to try Kona for dinner in November on the night we left WDW for the Darkside- but ended up canceling and having dinner at HRH instead. It's on my list for must-do's for November 2011- hoping to stay at BLT for that one. Nothing like planning ahead!

What's the matter Kara- a little LACTOSE INTOLERANT from all the chocolate milk????

ANd I kept that poem CLEAN as possible- I've gotten in trouble on here for using $$ for SS after another letter, and i don't want to get shut down!! Besides, it's harder for me to rhyme with wrong and long or sick and lick....

For the record, if Ellen refers to TD, she means Tokyo Dining, NOT The Ditch, as I thought...... Guess that shows where MY mind was, huh???

So now here is how I remember that night.....



This was not the woman that named Ellen the smartest DISmom, she is the woman who didn't have a freakin clue what Ellen was saying!!! So if Ellen BELIEVES that she said she was the smartest DISmom, then okay.....

I really hope she uses her tip money to order some of those socks from the 1970's with the individual toes.....





WHERE is my curly straw??????



Am I the only one who noticed the hidden Mickey here?



I am so glad Ellen and I split the two sushi apps, it was so good and the PERFECT amount of food after eating and drinking around the world......

Now, for the story of Bucky (real name, Buckeye, but we all call him Bucky). Let's just say that he had a, um, er, "issue" a few weeks back and I had to call the vet about it. Something popped up and wouldn't go away.... Vet laughs, tells me it's rare but not dangerous, and next time I might have to take action to "correct" this rare but not dangerous "condition." Uh...... NOT!

How was that for keeping clean for the censors????

I have no idea where all my pics are but I seem to be missing a LOT from this trip!!!!

YUM! Those Kona pics...the food looks fantastic! I swear one day I am going to get that Tonga Toast...but then those pancakes look soooooooo good too! We have not stayed at the Poly yet either (one of the downfalls of living so close that we don't often get the whole WDW vacation "experience") but it is so beautiful...it is really at the top of my list!

Loving the new TR and loving Kara's new hair!! This TR is keeping me sane until my husband and I sneak off to the world to enjoy some adult time sans kids. We even talk about it in code around them..."When Mommy and Daddy go to Jumanji...".. I'm not sure where we got Jumanji from, but they have no idea what it is..so it works.

Great updates.

Tokyo Dining looks like a great place to eat and if you are lucky enough to get the window an awesome view of Illuminations

I love sushi and those pics were making me crave

Kara I noticed the Hidden Mickey, cool pic

Kona Breakfast looks awesome and I love that you got a mimosa to go with breakfast, fabulous idea

Love the chocolate milk and the kool aid pictures. Tim will have to be the Designated Driver when we go to Epcot....darn staying off property. ( can you tell Im not too excited about it )

Finally posting.

Hi everyone-
It’s me, Joan, or wannabeadismom….I really need a new name too as I feel that I am truly now a DISMom….and it’s a great thing to be!!! I can’t believe this TR is already nine pages long. No wonder Ellen gave me a stern, “you REALLY need to post on the TR!” today. Sorry about that, Mom!
Without going back over everything covered (and we DID do a LOT in the first 24 hours), I only want to say--
1.I absolutely LOVE this picture….It truly portrays the DISMoms2 trip best!
This had to be the most amazing trip of my life. Doing the World with the DisMoms is truly the way to go. Who would believe that I didn’t know four of the women until our arrival!?! I feel like we’ve all been friends forever. Disney has a way of doing that for people.

http://i246.photobucket.com/albums/g...ms20100065.jpg

2.I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much in my life….my sides STILL hurt!
3.Who is that fat chick eating the cheese soup and pretzels? That can’t be me! (But it was delish!)
4.Skechers tone-ups are life (or feet) savers!
5.Love, love, LOVE absolutely everything about the Ditch.
6.Chocolate milk? Whatever you say, Kara!
7.All the Axe Murderer talk….totally true!
8.It was COLD in the LR but, hey, I was in WDW and I’m a tough old Iowa farm girl at heart. I can take it!
9.BTW, every day was a , “Sunshiny Day!” Ooops, it’s now in MY head!
10.The Samoan at Kona Café….to die for. The perfect breakfast food, especially for me, who really doesn’t like pancakes and the like for breakfast. Lots of delicious smoky, pulled pork…YUM! BTW, birthday shots and sake flight not a good mix, however this breakfast made everything all better!
11. OMG, Kara, that poor woman at TD with those socks. They look painful….
12.Finally, I LOVE being part of a hidden Mickey. It makes me feel SPECIAL!.
Ok, that’s it from me for now. Back to the REAL storytellers…………

Last edited by OhMari; 06-15-2010 at 08:37 AM. Reason: Looking to see if I could fix the picture. Nope.

Joan - Great update for something like your 10th post! Very funny! It looks like you are having a great time in every picture Ellen has posted (and in every text message she sent me where you unknowingly giving a pictorial tour of Disney Day 1 to an internet stranger). You are smiling in every picture and I am dying cause I am at work and not scheduled to leave for two more days!

I love your list! Very funny! After that post I think you can consider yourself an official Dismom. You have earned that honor with distinction!

Love that all you guys are posting on this TR. It just keeps getting funnier!

Ellen - FWIW - my crazy patient never stalked me at work today. But I have a feeling he might come back tomorrow! SE CURRRRRRR I TYYYYYYYY!

Mary Ellen

I'm with you on the Tonga Toast--it looks and sounds great, but my blood sugar would not do well with it! That Somoan would my choice, too!
