Mark-
It looks like most people are here to win points in the game you are making up as you go.... Nice Job!

Hey, this is fun, making up rules as I go along.
Woohoo!

You're doing great making up the rules....so far there's been no need for a review of instant replay.

I can't even imagine spending that much on a remote control car, but I can say, if you are going to do it....you might as well go for it. You can't just build the car. You've got to soup it up a bit.

We didn't have many "Have a magical day" moments this trip, thank goodness.

I'm sure the last quote of the TR will be worth something like 99 bujillionkatrillion points and make all other quotes up to that point essentially worthless.

Shenanigans! Look at the times of the posts, clearly we were typing our responses at the same time. I shouldn't be deducted for also having witty, insightful, and down right meaningless banter!

I don't mean to correct your grammar, but the correct wording is "Copi Kwik peeps has mad skillz."

Well, they had me in a dirty t-shirt. It's almost the same thing, just with more body fat.

That's what I was afraid of. The point of the game was to sucker people into actually reading the report.

Er, I mean, give some additional enjoyment to the reading of the report. Yeah, that's it.

Uh oh...he's onto me.

Well, they're not really rules...they're more like guidelines, actually.

You raise a good point, Barry. You were actually reading and responding to the report while the others were busy quote-hunting. It seems unfair to penalize you for that. The judges will confer on this issue and come back with a ruling. We reserve the right to reward actual reading and responses to the TR with extra bonus points at any time.

That's exactly how we felt. We knew the boys would respond to the remote control part the most.

I'll try and work some in. It's kind of a stream-of-consciousness thing here.

I followed over from Tink's TR and I have to say I'm loving your report so far!!

I just have one question for you...was the African Swallow by any chance carrying a coconut????? Sorry I'm a huge Monty Python fan and while I might not catch all of your quotes...I immediately smiled when I read that line!! That and the Witch scene are my two favorite scenes of the movie, but I digress.....

Can't wait for more!

Ok, no time to quote and banter and all that this morning, but I followed you over here from Tinkerbellarella's TR (Hi Tink!) because your title made me ::snortlaugh:: .....You see, "What About Bob?" is the most-watched, most-favorite movie in the LegoClan house hold.

FAN.TAS.TIC Trip Report! I'm lovin' it [NOMcDonald's]. Love that you stayed at POR -- that's been our "home" resort the last few trips and I would live there year-round if they let me. Despite the fact that I now must stay in Building 34 because it's the only one wherein I can find my way there and back again....(A Tourist's Tale.)

Can't wait for more!
