For our 2nd WDW this year 1st week in Nov, I was a bit concerned about lack of well no EMH for MK, latest night was 8pm, well I found out why and I'm a Happy camper, I figured they were getting ready for Christmas, what I wasn't planning was that the 1st MVMCP of the year is also going on that week, of course I will be present

So it's pretty much a Grand Slam week. get a 2nd WDW trip in, Food & Wine Fest, Get to see Blues Traveler at Epcot, and now MVMCP. it just doesn't get much better then that

One more DisDad moves it from meet n greet to convention. C'mon. You only have to pay for 1. Maybe Barry and his cheese can bunk with you.

It was great to meet you Kris! We'll have to do it again in the future!

Great meet

I wonder if they will let us drive the ship . Then we could swing by and pick up CJ

Better then my senario, which sounds something like this:

Me: I think when my upgrade comes up next year, I'll get an iphone

DW: Good. We'll use it to upgrade me and you can have my current one


This also happened with Nintendo DS, ipods, and if if I ever get a Kobo, same senario applies.

I'm there. Maybe build a makeshift raft and have them "rescue" me during the cruise. If you see me waving, don't just wave back, tell them to pick me up.

Amen.

Today we are relaxing and going to see the Marlins pound (hopefully) the Washington Gnats this afternoon. Lunch will be a double cheeseburger with fries possibly a beer to go along with it. The vegetarian will have a non-meat burger. Sounds gross but she thinks it tastes good. Where have I gone wrong?

I guess we know who's in charge...

You know most of the cellular companies now have family plans / shared minutes / reduced rates etc... when you buy 2 or more phones.

No pictures from Day 6 of staycation. We went to KY soccer tournament hosted in our town yesterday. Probably not the best idea for some male stranger to be photographing U14 girls from the sidelines. Last night, it was Mass followed by dinner at the Texas Roadhouse. Today is my last day of staycation. I wonder what to do. I think maybe DW will take dds to Holiday World and give me a day at home alone to recover from all the hard work this week.

As I posted on the commando thread, excellent get. We are thinking of doing WDW one year over Christmas Vacation or Thanksgiving so that we can get a MVMCP.

I think I read that in the fine print of the booking form. So, get ready CJ.

Well, don't get on the raft now, it's another 17 months before we'll get there. As for Crash, if that is all you did wrong, then you must have done a lot right.

Thanks Brian. I was getting ready to end my staycation a day early and go into work until I heard.

There's something about the Honda minivan it reminds me of a Hurst for some reason
I can't believe the system remembered I'd quoted this a day ago. But I think I was going to say I had a Dodge Grand Caravan, but it was built in Canada. Then the Mustang has a USA VIN.

I want to believe Disney would stop, but, now i'm really wondering if they would.

Washington Gnats? Not heard that, but I like it.
Those vegetarian burgers aren't awful. Just add extra cheese and lots of bbq sauce.

Tick tock.... tick tock.... Why is it not Friday yet? I start my 17 hr drive on Friday...

We don't match up on phone upgrades anymore because of me. When I get a phone, I pretty much use it till it's useless, she wants an upgrade as soon as she can. I went a long time with my previous phone, till the battery didn't want to hold the charge anymore. My current one is the most basic I could get. Finally going to get a smartphone now that I can probably justify having one now.

Oh, and I know who's in charge, that's why I'm still here, right?

I would like to join the DDC! I knew this forum was here, but never joined because I wasn't a "dad" yet. My wife and I have just finalized an the adoption of our son though, so I am finally a true "DisDad" to my son Braxton. Thanks

We got our night at Great Wolf Lodge booked for June 17th, for Audrey's "birthday party". If the weather is nice that day, she really wants to go on the Maid of the Mist too.

Today is our esteemed Assistant Manager's last day of work!! Never before have I seen the store so unified to see someone go. You know it's probably a bad sign when two other long-term employees in the district are going too, and have big retirement parties booked, and posted throughout the stores, ours has a small e-mail mention and a half-assed pot-luck lunch today, an "Image Monday" that is too busy for anyone to attend. .

Any news on movement for me might come by the end of next week, when they should be announcing the transfers. All I really hope is my good friend to get on full-time, she deserves it.
