Hey Ponzi! I'm here too. Looking forward to your first attempt at trip report writing and hearing all about Hawaii. You're off to a great start...

You know I don't ever recall him mentioning his real name. If he has, I missed it. Come to think about it, I only know the real names of few people from all of Nebo's TR's.

Boy, this is so exhiliarating! Refreshing.
Under no pressure, I can post when I want, when I feel like it, and SAY what I want!
But don't worry about me, I don't have a sarcastic bone in my body, besides, after that great start, I'd never want to rain on your parade, I"m here to encourage you!
Besides, we're leaving in a couple days,
when we get back, then we'll talk.

Ok, hmm, favorite ride,,, hmm,,, no, not BTMR or Soarin', like a normal person would pick,,,I'm going to guess something like DUMBO, so you can stay close to your peer group,,, or LibertyBelle Riverboat, so you can stay close to that pier group.

Really, looking forward to hearing how you spend a week in Hawaii, talking about sacrifices, did you get Meg Ryan to go and check out the volcanos?
Ok, resume,

Ok, this is an edit,,,, for some reason,,, Turtle Talk with Crush popped into my mind,,, so I'm changing my snarky comment on your favorite ride to Crush,,,,which actually still lets the snarkiness apply.

Hey, aren't you supposed to be lying around the pool at CSR already?

I tried selling Girl Scout Cookies. Problem was I kept eating them all and wasn't making any profit. In fact, I was losing money.

I have to admit, I read the first couple of sentences and had to stop to get a glass a wine (ok, a refill...). This should be fun

Woo-hoo! I love the thought of a uniquely laid out TR! It's awesome and no less than I expect of you Pkondz. Your commentaries are great in other TRs, but this will be even better because you get to be the main event!

What a bonanza it will be for sure if we are able to have a Pkondz and Nebo thread going at the same time!

I can't wait for the next installment!

Hi Tink! Welcome to the mad house.

That reminds me of one of my favorite sayings, and no it does not apply to you. It's just a saying I like:

Don't go away mad... just go away.

I asked not just once, but at least twice if anyone wanted a heads up to send me a PM.

I can think of one young lady who did not send a PM. Here's a hint. She's married to someone who likes bunnies.


I feel a little left out, in left field discarded, recycled abolished,abominated? black balled, Hey! Better than blue repudiated, but not a reprobate brushed aside...always nice to brush up i mean, I thought we meant something to each other, we had a smiley connection...

Oh fine. Here:
Friends?


Ok I think you get the point...I've got it off my chest now so I'll put it back in the box.

I must admit... I don't know any other woman who can put her chest in a box. That's a pretty neat trick!

You know if I don't take a jab at you at least once...everyone else will, so I might as well at least get mine in early.

Oh don't worry. I'm quite confident that the jabs will come with or without you. But congrats on being #1!

Now back to your regularly scheduled, albeit on some obscure cable network, non-cookie cutter, but all around entertaining and anticipated, program.
Oh the pressure! That's it. I'm wrapping this one up now.

Oh stop cheering everyone. I'm kidding. I'll still do the TR.
Wow! Now everyone's crying.

Cool.

Ponzi sure as heck can't break down his own, so I'll give it a shot.

Um... uh, oh.

If Nebo manages to do it when they get back from their home away from home, then I'll step aside and just burst out in song. Until then, here goes.

Songs are good. Especially yours. But feel free to double team with Nebo if you want. The more the merrier!

So why you doing a TR?

Because people like you couldn't just leave well enough alone!

Of course we do, can't have a story without a cast.

Wanna bet? Besides, I once had to wear a cast for 6 weeks. Not fun. So there you go. Cast = no fun. Wow, that's right up there with E=mC2


Alright. Geez! Just trying to have a little fun.

Great smiley!

You were just about to give us a recipe for making cookies.

The best cookie recipe I've got:
Mrs. Field's Blue Ribbon Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
2 1/2 C. alll purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 C. Dark brown Sugar, firmly packed
1/2 C. white sugar
1 C. Salted butter, softened
2 large eggs
2 tsp. pur vanilla extract
2 C. semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 300°F

In medium bowl combine flour, soda and salt. Mix well with wire whisk. Set aside.

In a large bowl with an electric mixer blend sugars at medium speed. Add butter and mix to form a grainy paste, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Add eggs and vanilla extract, and mix at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add the flour misture and chocolate chips and blend at low speed until just mixed. Do not overmix

Drop by rounded tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet, 2" apart. Bake 22-24 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer cookies immediately to a cool surface with a spatula.


You need to make the dough before you can use a cookie cutter.

No. No. No. Didn't you read the first post? We went to Hawaii... the dough's all gone, dude.

Only 6 points? How many points do we need to win the grand prize? I just missed it last time by 15 minutes.

That's part of the quiz, so...

Finally.

Patience, grasshopper.

Ton of houses going up, but no stores or restaurants it seems. Have to travel about 5 miles down the road to get groceries. Lady H and I will usually stop on our way home from work since we pass a grocery store everyday.

Actually, that's what I like about our neighborhood. Keeps the traffic down. Quieter. Had our fill of that at the last place!

Sorry kid. No room for you here. You'll have to hurry and grow up, then move out of the house.

Well... Yeah. Where else am I going to put all my toys?

Ponzi and his wifey, visiting Disney. K.I.S.S.I.N.G. First came love, then came marriage, then came Ponzi with another baby carriage.

Hmmm... You have no idea how close you are to the truth. I'll explain in the next chapter.

Maybe.


Sorry. Couldn't help it. Seemed like a good opportunity for a quick T_Man song. Please proceed.

Anytime T-Man, anytime.

Proceeding...



As you would tell Nebo, we don't need to know what goes on in your personal life. And you're wondering why you need to expand.

What do you mean, I 'need to expand'. Have you been talking to my DW?

Does said character have a name? Or from here on out she'll be known as wife or DW?

Patience, grassho.... oh nevermind.

Yes, please tell. Lady H and I want to know the secret so we can go to.

Patience, gr...

I think I'm in a rut

with a bug.


Great start. Can't wait to hear about your Hawaiian adventure.
Coming soon, got a few more shout outs to take care of first!

Was mostly a lurker on Nebo's TR and appreciated your humor. Will be a nice change to read a non cookie cutter report. Oh and thanks for the cookie recipe

I agree. Now please have a 1000 word critique posted by noon tomorrow.

But don't worry about me, I don't have a sarcastic bone in my body

Me too. No sarcasm here.

Really.


Honest.


besides, after that great start, I'd never want to rain on your parade, I"m here to encourage you!

Thanks!

Hey! Wait a minute. You're not just trying to lull me into a false sense of security, are you????


Besides, we're leaving in a couple days,
when we get back, then we'll talk.

I knew it!

Ok, hmm, favorite ride,,, hmm,,, no, not BTMR or Soarin', like a normal person would pick,,,I'm going to guess something like DUMBO, so you can stay close to your peer group,,, or LibertyBelle Riverboat, so you can stay close to that pier group.

1. That question was already answered (see PrincessCaitlin's post)
2. I would never pick Liberty Belle. It's in the full sun. And apierances can be desleeving and I'd get a burn. (You had that one coming)


Really, looking forward to hearing how you spend a week in Hawaii, talking about sacrifices, did you get Meg Ryan to go and check out the volcanos?
Ok, resume,


Love Meg. Hated Joe vs Volcano. Not her best work! The producers would've been better served sacrificing the film reels to the volcano and sparing the rest of us.

Oh sure you can, what, you never heard of people selling Girl Scout Cookies for extra money?
So how many gross of Thin Mints can I put you down for?

Can't go without some snarkiness, now can we?

Don't get too excited. It'll still be somewhat formulaic. I think starting at the end and then bouncing back and forth might be a little too off the wall.

Thanks for joining in! Hope I won't disapoint.

Hi Kathy! Welcome! As mentioned, don't get too excited. It may not be cookie cutter, but it will still be cookie. If I make it too wierd, it'll be unreadable. We'll see how things go, though.

And you're welcome. It really is good.
