Wow, who would have thought that the STICKIES had useful information??

I now have some inkling of what I have gotten myself into. And like the DVC, I keep asking, why didn't I do this sooner??

For the formal intro:
Name: Andrew (or Drew but SWMBO doesn't like Drew)
Family Sit Rep: Married to Carolyn (Caropooh on the DIS) for 27 years (that beats everyone I saw in the first 4 or 5 pages), we have Alana DD17 and Kathryn DD12. We met while we both worked at Disneyland in CA and were going out for almost 5 years when we got married. As I met her right after she turned 18 and before she graduates, I have known her over half her life.
Pets: NONE Some peanut buttering so and so stole our black lab Mickey a few years ago and we have not replaced him.
Location: Auburn, WA a half hour or so south of Seattle.
Occupation: Searching for employment, hoping to get hired on at Boeing. Spent 26 years working for REI before being terminated for a stupid act of horseplay.
Favorite foods: BBQ ribs (I make a great chipolte BBQ sauce), Italian, Mexican

Favorite Drink: Iced Tea, Cherry Coke
Hobbies: Not strangling DD17, Cooking, Camping, DCL trips (6 so far), eating (which is why I like to cook)

Hello everyone...

Name: Chris (or Brad, hence the screen name)
Family Sit Rep: Currently single. Hopefully that will change! No kids, but I have a nephew and niece that I love. But one day I am going to have a kid (or three...)!
Pets: One dog and five cats. All the strays make their way to my house. But I love 'em all...
Location: Shreveport, LA (As far from New Orleans as one can be and still be in Louisiana)
Occupation: At the moment I create electrical test reports for network transformers. I have also worked for an independent publisher and I used to cover sports for the local paper.
Favorite foods: Italian and Mexican. But less now than I like --- New Year's diet. Grr...
Favorite Drink: Tea, coffee and Diet Dr pepper
Hobbies: Who has time for a hobby these days?!? (I do love TV, movies and videogames.)

Oh, and I am a Disney-holic. I am about to go on my third trip in less than two years. Oh, and my made up Disney vocabulary made it into Mousejunkies 2... Yeah, Disney owns me...!

Welcome David!

I used to live in CT, and have passed thru Milford once or twice. I lived in beautiful downtown Groton for about a year. Does that count?
