Welcome to our happy world aka, SSC!! there are a few of use in the tri-state area....you have the PA boys (oops, sorry, pyrate and prince) the Jersey girls, our New Yorkers and everywhere around us. today is a quiet day for us, I just got back from a meeting with a customer so I needed some wind-down time since they irritated me so here I am. I actually have customers in that area and I believe our host and favorite prince has traveled in the area as well.

Don't you love customers who irritate you and ruin the day? Similar issues here but nothing so far today knock on wood! I do have a meeting in the next hour so that should be interesting hopefully they're in a good mood.

Glad to see there are some people relatively close to my area. What part of Jersey are you from?

So, I posted a couple pages back about being jealous of one of my students who was at WDW. My jealousy had slightly subsided (even though I still love chatting with her about rides and restaurants), but today she comes hopping into school wearing her lei from the Poly, our Disney home. Sooooo wishing it was May!!!

Well after 2 weeks off I got the go ahead yesterday to go back to work! Didn't feel too bad after a 10 hour shift. 3 more to go though so we'll see how my knee holds out. I may or may not work OT this weekend depending on how bad my knee gets.

In other news I got my taxes done and I'm actually getting money back! woohoo! haha. More money to put towards my wedding and AP's for DL. XD

Welcome to all our newbies! Feel free to pull up a stool and join in the conversation and enjoy some libations!

I haven't registered yet, so didn't see that. I do have a room and airfare already though! It is normal for disney races though in asking for a time. My first race I used my ToT time and they moved me up, so you will just have to do a 10K sometime in the next few months!

Ha, reminds me of the scene from Clerks, where a customer asks what the cat's (who is walking on the counter in the store) name is and the clerk replys "annoying customer".

I live right outside of Princeton but work in Edison. it didn't just end there, once I got back to the office, my other office called and needed me to come down TODAY and do training for a project that starts on Monday...nothing like waiting until the last minute. so last night I drove south and here I am...just out of 5 hrs of training and now I have to do my paperwork. I think they do this just to irritate me (especially my own office) because they know I will eventually start screaming.....that's when I know it's time for me to head to the Mouse! 45 days and I'm outta here!! I just found out I have to travel the next 2 weeks out of state (Williamsport, PA, Newburgh, NY, Albany, NY and Bristol, CT) all for training. so glad I love my job!

Hey singles social club people! Just wanted to say hi and I think I actually figured out how to post a link to my TR if anyone is interested. I have fallen behind a bit. One of my coworkers decided to leave and we had to hire someone else. All hell has broken loose since she left. Yeah we hired a replacement but it means training and me being pulled away to work with patients and not doing my main job (if you ever had braces and had to wear a retainer, that's what I do, I make the retainers) which is not really such a bad thing as an hourly worker. I am still interested in the October meet. I may actually be bringing my coworker that left. She is actually a good friend even though she is only 20 and I am 51. She's never been to Disney and really wants to so I would love for her to come with me. Her mom and I are the same age and also work in the same office and are good friends. I'm trying to get mom to come in Oct. also. Mom is basically a single also. (long story)

Dont know what the H*** is going on with DH as far as the big D. He told me he wanted this on Jan 25th and other than a couple days later wanting some financial info has not mentioned it again. So, in the mean time I need to get a life, and enjoy it and meet new people. So, as soon as Jetblue has some decent fares I will be booking airfare so I can be there on Oct 13th! I really am looking forward to meeting some of you crazy DISboard peeps! haha!

Hi! I've been posting on the DIS for a little while, before our trip to WDW in February. I'm not normally a solo tripper though, so just started coming here recently, mostly just lurking. I decided I might as well join in here as I am indeed single.

I'm 36, a divorced mom of a pair of teenaged girls and just got back from National Guard deployment to Afghanistan. So right now I'm unemployed and trying to finally finish my degree, while taking as many trips to Disney as possible.

In July I'm heading south to Disneyland with 7 adult family members and one 10 year old. I plan to ditch them all and spend most of the 5 park days on my own. I love my family, but I've been wanting to enjoy Disney without the kids or my parents for sooo long. I have a friend in Garden Grove who might just come hang out with me for a day or so, and I just can't wait. Is anyone else here closer to Disneyland?

Yay! We're not close to DL really, it's about an 8-10 hour drive depending on traffic, but at least we can drive and don't have to fly.

I may have just added 2 more adults to our July trip. A friend of mine and his GF may join me and we'll take my car, that makes 11 of us! Ack!
