I'm not understanding anything other than "phat butt" but whatever, I'll hang around and wait for pictures.

Now, I think I understood most of the above...except for kludgie. Are we talkin' about the Scottish venacular definition for this word?





If so, then - PK - I'd like to see a picture of the kludgie that your phat bahookie broke.

How's that for coincidence?

Officially....I'm going to Hong Kong.












It just so happens to have a mini-Disneyland located there.

A recap of the PIO PPPPPP (aka Let the Planning Begin!)

A recap of the PIO PPPPPP (aka Let the Planning Begin!)


Those of you who have lived through one of my PTRs will know that I have long held the view that Proper Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance (PPPPPP). I’m guessing that the Dis filter may have wiped out one of my ‘P’s (or maybe not) but I think you get the picture.

Yes, Snapppyd….there are 3 more P’s in this than your handle!


For those of you who have lived through one of my PTRs before, you will also know that I am the kind to over-plan and over-prepare and then NOT worry when deviations from the Perfect Plan occurs in real life.

During my PPPPPP Period (hey – I think I’m up to 7!), I tend to over-drive DH crazy with my “did you know this” and “did you know that” and “what do you think about this”.
So, he was eternally grateful when I discovered the Dis so that I could drive you all crazy; instead of him. Afterall, you can choose to ignorami me and I would remain in blissful ignorance. He, on the other hand, can not (He is not that 'Ignorance' and I am not that 'Blissful').

Our agreement for this trip is I do the PPPPPP and he’ll just go with the flow.

We need to make sure we work out:

1. Where to Eat. My dad will eat anything as long as it comes with rice. DH is a vegie-'pesky'-tarian. Which means he eats:





...and....





2. Where to Sleep. DH and I have agreed that it needs to be clean, centrally located (but quiet) and near transportation.





Any sort of animals, 4-legged or otherwise, are not allowed.




3. Where to Shop.





Oh all right…maybe in my dreams I get an L-series 70 – 200 mm lens! But a girl can dream, right?





4. How to get around. Okay...this may fall into homework of memorising the public transport Map (and getting an Octopus Card)! Afterall, how hard can it be??






5. Where and how to park our bahookies (preferably without breaking kludgies)





I suspect that this task may end up being to memorise where most of the Golden Arches are in HK.




6. What to See. Note to self…More work required for this category!



…quite possibly in that order.





Anything else I’ve missed?

Let the Games..er…PPPPPP begin!

Yeah...that's fun...but best done by mocking you inbetween

I don't know, if hotels offer cats in the rooms I'm more than happy to choose that over other hotels. When we went to New Zealand, we stayed at a wonderful bed a breakfast where they had two houses on the property and we had one and the host had the other. There was the cutest cat who hung out at the guest house, he was very friendly and only had three legs, we named him tri'pawed. On our last day he brought us a gift of a caught mouse. We had shared our steaks that I cooked with him and the night that the hosts cooked us bison we also shared with him. He took a fancy to us and would come join us in bed the mornings that we chose to sleep in. He was very affectionate. I love to meet a feline on vacations!
