Totally excited about the possibility of meeting again and getting "another" Rita for you and "a first" for me. LOL - Kidding - Just cause I couldn't drink in May doesn't mean I haven't made up for it!

Congrats on the pin code!

Oh - that's so nice that you get to spend T'giving with your folks. That's perfect. We have friends who live in Daytona and I suggest to Denny that we might want to visit them for T'giving. That is if we are in Orlando on the actual holiday.

We were, literally, running through DTD trying to get to Cirque du Soliel in time. Totally ticked me off!
Oh....That would be awful. I would hate to miss Cirque because of a bus. I actually almost missed Cirque last May and we didn't take the bus. We had a car, but everyone was goofing around and it took forever to leave. I did the same thing - mad dash to will call to pick up the tickets. Phew. Got there literally one minute before the show started.

I was so relieved. That was a very unsettling 20 minutes. I am so glad it worked out well. Hopefully no glitches in May.

I hear on that - I do the same thing. I think of 10 things I want to comment on, but can only remember three. Drives me crazy. I have to stop over on you TR to see if you finally got photobucket working.

Seriously, it was like a comedy skit. Still, I am convinced that paint was already dry. That sign had been up since morning (saw it on my run) and it was hot that day.

Yes, I know. Ridiculous.

Like I could hold myself down if the seat belt let loose!!!!!!!!! I KNOW this but my craZy logic takes over each and every ride. I am going to try again this time!!!
Well, if you don't hold yourself down in the seat you feel like you are in suspended animation - just hanging mid air. I think its a weird feeling. So I always push myself into the seat. And I have that undone seat belt fear too.

Beautiful pictures! I love the details you captured in DHS, it's got such interesting architecture.
I am so glad it all got worked out. It could have been a disaster. I am so glad I found the mistake and could spend the 20 mins to fix it.

Thanks for the compliment on the pictures. The park really does have a lot of interesting features and details. Especially ToT - that building is amazing.

I haven't DISed in a couple days, so I am behind again. The last couple of days have been really busy at work. Last night I worked on a new youtube video. I wanted to record a song with harmony and multiple instrument tracks. Its a little messy cause I couldn't get the voices to synch up very well. I made the second guitar a little too loud. But I actually put captions in with the words, so I think the video part turned out well. The recording is just a little sub par.

But the good news is I included some pictures from the AK and WL. Please watch if you have a couple minutes (4 to be exact)

ME, I am SO far behind that I can't possibly comment. But I did skim and love the pictures at the Studios. I hate PACKING to go home too.

No problem. Catch up when you get a chance. I have to update my links. Plus I need to check back in on your PTR and see what's up. I know you have had a lot going on at home.

Thank you so much for watching!!!! I am trying to gradually convert all my songs into videos. I am just such a perfectionist that I hear every mistake. I would eventually like to have professional recordings made of my better songs using a bigger variety of instruments. But thank you so much for watching!!!!!!

Thanks so much for listening Brooke! I am so glad you enjoyed it. I feel so honored when people listen to my music/ watch my videos. It's hard for me to judge if they are really worthy of posting. Although people post some crazy stuff on youtube!

Hey Cynthia - glad you enjoyed the video. I have been feeling the need to get more of my music recorded and posted on youtube. I decided to work on another song tonight, hence no update. But fortunately the song went well so if it still sounds OK tomorrow I can start working on its video.

Welcome! Thanks for joining in. And not creepy at all to lurk. That's what the boards are for. Glad you are enjoying the pics. I hope to do an update soon. I am turning into a slacker!
