Sweet! I'll get the ball rolling soon. Let's shoot for like May or early October.
Just a reminder.... We are looking at Early October for the big WDW meet for F&W, so if you want to maybe try and get there, or don't want to be competing for the likes of Darcy or people who wanted to attend both, the May (or mid-summer) idea might be best.

Maybe a pirate who stole the Diva crown, earning the title honorary Diva?

trust me , if anyone even tries to steal your crown, or that of any of the Princesses in here, they will be keelhauled.

Mid summer won't happen. Too crowded and hot. I'm definitely shooting for April/May.

On another note, I was SUPPOSED to leave for Cali today buuuuuut my damn car failed emissions for a 5th consecutive time!! I really want to put a brick of c4 in the car and blow the thing to kingdom come!!!!!!!!!!!! Now I have to go spend $75 just for diagnostic plus whatever time and parts it takes to get the damn thing fixed and HOPEFULLY the shop can fix it. Otherwise I'm screwed 6 ways from Sunday. I'm at my wit's end with this damn car....

Hmmm....

I know in areas i've lived in there has usually been a way around the failed emissions.... Basically, if you spend $XXX in repairs to pass emissions but still fail, you can get a waiver due to the attempts to fix the car. Anything like that out there?




And also for everyone else.... I hate to get a bit political, but I thought this was something everyone should see.

http://vimeo.com/31100268

It's basically a cliff-notes explanation of the problems with the SOPA and Protect-IP laws currently being pushed thru Washington. There are some other reasons from a technical/geek standpoint as well as some scary slippery slope concerns (not to mention abuse concerns)... but this video doesn't really get into all those and I'll spare you the details. I would highly recommend watching this.

In all honesty.... these laws actually have the potential to effectively kill the DISBoards due to all the videos and images posted on the forums and liability it places on Pete and co.

Hey folks... back in West Palm Beach after wrapping up three hellish days at WDW for the young princess' belated birthday drive-by... www.NEVERAGAIN.com is all Im saying about going to WDW the week between Christmas and New Years. By noon I wanted to karate chop every child in there and smack the next person to run over my heel with their stroller...smh. 90 minutes wait average a ride... not I. The highlights were that we stayed at the Dolphin which was surprisingly nice, and got upgraded because our room wasn't ready. Also, got to see my my CM friend that I met last May when I was at WDW. It was funny trying to find him clothes to put on over his "costume" so he wouldn't be recognized. Im ready for Feb!

Jersey week was crazy enough for me.... Definitely don't think I could handle the crowds from this week.

Sorry to hear, on the car note, my car broke down the day I was trying to leave for Christmas, yes, again. I hate it, just got it back today, it's not even fun to drive because I am constantly in fear it will break down.

I may sell it...

I just bought a new car in October and it is wonderful. I actually look forward to driving the four miles to work. Have you had your car a long time? Maybe it's time for a change.
