Nemesisisisisis

I'm sure this does NOT reflect all the nemesisisisisis... please PM me with changes. Also, this format will most likely change.. as there are many that swear allegiance with certain nemesis and I most certainly don't have the time to read through the posts to find them all right now!

Hey Don!!!!

Do you think on the first page you could link (or post) the pictures of the DDC meets? Maybe you can put them in the same post as the nemesisisisis post?

Got to meet a bunch of you guys (6), wish I could have meet everyone

Closed Epcot & MK with Carl, still trying to figure out if Epcot becomes a dry park during EMH

Scored 13 out of 18 transportation cards

Toured some of the EMH's in AK with Colin, did Expo Everest & Bugs Life, Colin had a Tripod with him so I'm sure he has some Awesome pics

Hey dads, quick update:

DW GOT THE JOB!!!!!

Well, it's a tentative offer depending on the results of her background check, which I think will be fine (as long as they don't look too closely into my background). Other than that, it looks like we'll be moving out of sunny South Florida to Indianapolis this summer (now to talk her into one last visit to Disney before moving). The background check will take 4-6 months, so she will probably go up ahead of us and when the girls finish school the three of us will follow. Culture shock here we come....

Thanks for the prayers and good wishes. And I thought last Christmas @ MK was magical.

I'll keep ya'll posted throughout.....

ClearScreen is the commish for the football league. I'll defer to him if he's interested in running a baseball league as well, or if not, I'd be happy to set one up in a few months.

Hmm... sounds like maybe we were having to good of a time before EMH to really comprehend if/when the park went dry???
