Yesterday, she called to say her oldest was sick in the belly, spraying out of both ends. And, keep an eye out for my kids.

and you'll see from the signature that we leave for WDW on Saturday.
i really hope we don't have a "cheese ball yak attack" during the 1,000 miles from the STL to Orlando. That will make for one LONG ride...
Yikes! Good luck with avoiding this before, during or after your trip.

I don't normally do this... and I am NOT a doctor, but I have to recommend this to you. Try taking Airborne (http://airbornehealth.com) while you are still feeling ok. I have folks that are fanatic about taking this during the flu season and it seems to work for them. It's the zinc that is supposed to fight the stuff. Praying you and your family stay healthy for the trip!!

He'll be having it removed in an endovascular coiling procedure shortly after the first of the year (he needs to be on blood thinning meds for a couple of weeks before the procedure). The exploratory procedure confirmed that the source of the aneurysm is a congenital structural defect, so my brothers and I are being encourage to get MRAs done to test and see whether we have the same abnormality.

I might actually get to come up for air for just a bit now, though I have two other big cases with looming deadlines that I need to pay attention to. One bright note - DW and I decided that we didn't feel like Chinese food and a movie this year, so we reserved a nice suite at Great Wolf Lodge and we'll be spending Christmas Eve at the indoor waterpark with the kids.
Aaron, I'm sorry to hear the news. Your dad will be in our prayers, and hope you and your brothers get a clean bill of health.

The Great Wolf Lodge sounds great!

AJRitz: You, your dad and siblings are in our prayers. I hope everything goes well.

prattpak: Awesome pic. Can't add anything more. Just awesome.

Captain_Oblivious: Giants vs Eagles. I think I heard the cheers from Delaware all the way out here in Chicago yesterday. Congrats. As for FFL, it looks like its you and me in the Battle of Complete Irrelavance (ie 5th place). Assuming that AP doesn't post 50 fantasy points against the Bears tonight.

I tried out an Android-based phone last year and have been hooked ever since. It has a slight learning curve as opposed to an iPhone, but is worth the time invested. But it seems all newer phones (iPhone4, Win7 Mobile, and Android-based) are all great phones.

As far as carriers: we use Verizon. It has the best coverage around our area and the places we visit. We have used all the major carriers within the past 10 years (Sprint, T-Mobile, Cingular, AT&T, and Verizon.) We like Verizon the best. But it depends on how good the coverage is in the areas you will be using your phone.

Good luck in your decision.

And Prattpack, that is the greatest Splash Mountain photo ever!

jason4024 and prattpack meet...

I would like to thank Mark for making the meet happen, and providing some fast passes for DS Kory and I to ride Everest with him. It was definitely our pleasure to meet his family. Here is a pic of our meet at AK on 12/13/10.

Aaron - sorry to hear this, but happy they caught it before it ruptured. My mom had one, and the doc was telling us that most people that have them don't even make it to the hospital. Hers was too wide for the coiling (the preferred method of fixing them) so they tried to basically shut it off with a fancy medial paper clip. Prayers for you and your family...

BTW....they will be in Corpus Christi and Ft. Worth in April and El Paso and San Antonio in October next year.
I'd be exited too!

30 minutes and we were back on the road. Of course, that was only one volley, and only out of one end. Good luck!

Awesome pic! Not as awesome as the Splash Mountain picture, but still pretty awesome!




I know I have a TR to do, and I promise I'll get it started soon. Been Peanut Buttering busy at work. Spent 3 weeks before I left prepping for a huge software upgrade a work, then the week after I get back we do it. Still sorting out the causalities.
But on a happy note - DW called DVC Member Services this morning and booked a Savannah view at Kidiani Village for June 27th-30th. We'll be spending two weeks in Florida, but due to odd vacation rules at work we don't yet know which two weeks. However, the few days we booked are for sure.

Unbelievable game! I'm glad I resisted the urge to throw something through my TV in the first 3 quarters.

Looking forward to the epic Toilet Bowl matchup next week!
