Wooooooohoooooooooooooooo, I think I made the top of page 2, where ALL the hip action REALLY is. I can't believe you've got 3 chapters up already; you move faster than me when I find a spider in the jacuzzi!!

Hey Jen! Cynthia's the expert on graphics - I need to find out how she makes hers flash back and forth between more than one picture. All I do is make a little piece of artwork and save it as a jpeg, load it up to Photobucket and then plug it in my signature. You get it to serve as a link the same way you do when you type words and use them as a link: select the img link and then click that little earth button. Is that what you were asking? Maybe I'm being dense...

Yay! You made it! I figured I needed something to do to pass the time - I can't just sit here drumming my fingers waiting for your next update all day, LOL!

You're not being dense. My question was more of how you make them i.e. photoshop, etc. For example, you're most recent one is of the Survivor logo but you were able to change the wording and everything. How did you do that?!?

And your Dad is like Frank Zappa?!?!?!? And well, being similar to Oscar the Grouch isn't straying too far from what Zappa was like anyway. I need to meet this man! Do/did you listen to any of his music? I'm a big fan if you haven't already guessed

Oh, and great start to the TR! I'm so happy you decided to write one. It's never too late! I've actually been considering writing one's from my trips two years ago. That might be pushing it though....

Oh, okay. Well, what I did in this case is found a Survivor logo I liked on Google and saved it to my computer. Then I opened it in Paint.net, which is a free, open source software similar to Photoshop. Then I painted over the word "Survivor" and created a new layer and typed September 2010 Trip Report (or whatever it says). Oh, actually, first I had to find a free Survivor like font to download (which was easy to find). Then I did something similar to the word Outwit to change it to say Outplay. If you don't have Photoshop and are too cheap (like me) to lay out for it, you should try Paint.net. Its not as good, but you can really do quite a bit of stuff with it. I'll probably buy Photoshop Elements, but we are planning on getting a Mac in a couple months, so it would be a waste of money to buy a Windows version now. I'll just wait.

Actually, I don't know really how much my dad's personality is like Frank Zappa - but people have always said he looks like him. Probably less so now that his hair has gone all gray. When I was a little kid, he wore it in a ponytail. So, looks: Zappa, personality: Oscar

You should totally write that report - I love retro reports!

I also fall in the camp that feels the dining plan is a good deal in general, so we typically buy it even if it isn't free. We've become accustomed to eating one table service meal each day while we are at Disney, and we spend more doing that out of pocket than the cost of the plan. And I DO so love not even bothering to look at the right hand side of the menu. THAT in and of itself is a vacation to me!
I wholeheartedly agree.

I'm afraid you'll have to wait at least another day and a half...

I am sitting on the floor in the commons area at Bek's Comm. College while she's in class- then I have to help her take care of a few "housekeeping" issues (bus pass, add/drop ballroom dancing, etc...) then will drive back to POrtland. I haven't even started writing my C chapter yet, nor unloaded the pix. Sooooooooo.... could take a bit.

Meantime, maybe, just maybe, I can catch up on a few of the threads i'm on.

Hi there!!!! You know its funny, I haven't actually watched Survivor in a couple years - but I did used to be a big fan. We did actually have a Survivor moment on this trip though - I think about day 4. Won't give it away yet but it was very funny and inspired my title.

Darn. We are predicting a snow day tomorrow - perfect DIS-ing weather, was hoping I'd have Liesa update.

Wait, what are you posting on - you said you are at the college? Your new netbook?

Hi Rebecca!! I love the start to your TR and am looking forward to read more about your trip.

And don't worry about a late start. I am moving with ours at a snail's pace so I am sure you will be able to finish way faster than me even though our trip was a year ago and I am still writing the TR!!

I'm following over from Glenn's also!

Loved Fantasy Island as a kid, wanted to get Season 1 for my middle son for Christmas (he loves old TV shows), but hubby didn't think Ryne would like it. Right now he's watching Charlie's Angels, Monk, MacGyver and Smallville, he's finished off the Dick VanDyke shows.

We've never done the Dining Plan, maybe if it were free would try it, but we bought in to DVC and it's not free if you are using points, plus with the convenience of a kitchen in our rooms we keep breakfast food and sandwich supplies on hand, so we would probably never use all of the dining credits.

How fun to travel with your parents.....we did it once about 13-14 years ago and haven't been able to convince them to go again. After we bought our DVC and I was talking about our next trip to my mom she asked me how much longer we "had" to keep going there. I told her we "get" to keep going until 2042 (or something like that) She just doesn't get the Disney love. I think Dad would like to go again sometime, but until she agrees to it he won't do it.
