Duck Soup!

I actually quoted one from that movie on Thursday at work. I am a critical care nurse in an "acuity adaptable critical care unit," which means that the patients come in sick and then stay until they are ready for discharge. With a base staffing number including both critical care and telemetry nurses, this sometimes gets us into trouble with the balance of nurses if our number of critically ill patients exceeds expectations. I was in charge on Thursday and one of our big managers stopped in to ask how things were going. My response...."Awfully decent of you to drop in today. Do you realize our army is facing disastrous defeat? What do you intend to do about it?"

Long story short-he did nothing and left me to figure out how to rob Peter, Paul, and Mary to get through the shift and yes...I was singing the "Leaving on a Jet Plane" song just trying to keep my spirits up! Even though you don't like the song, you have to understand that it was more of a threat to cope with adversity that day


Hope you were able to get into Jiko tonight-the chef's bar is one of my favorite places if I am dining by myself.

Anxiously awaitng the new title to appear

I'm in CJ! Sounds like a fun solo trip. I saw the Cava event on the Touringplans blog, and thought it looked like it would be a lot of fun. I'm glad you were able to get an RSVP in for it.

Raining right now. Planned on the MK tonight but will try to get into Jiko instead. Spent the morning at Epcot. Did the Culinary tour for Jiko and Boma. Pretty interesting and free food. Can't beat that at Disney. Had nice conversations with the two guides.

And the love bugs are out. Not too bad but they seem to like hovering around me.

So glad for another CJ9200 TR! We should be there right now, but for some ugly medical reasons we canceled the day before leaving so points in holding. Yours is one of the few TRs that I would read even without pictures, you have such a snarky sense of humor it's fun!

Hopefully you'll throw us a bone and send pictures once you get home!

We are staying at AKL in 2.5 weeks! Can you tell me about the Culinary tour? Is it offered daily? Where do I find out about the time/sign up? Thanks! It'll be hot, and I'll be 6 months pregnant, so that sounds like a diversion I could really enjoy.

Nice CJ! Can't wait to hear about all about it.

Have you visited your elan yet?

Bang on Alison. And he knows it.

Alison, hope things change for the better soon.

CJ, I have a very important question for you. Ready? Please tell me that you can get Ernie and the boys in the room now. Please tell me that TNT is one of the extra channels added. I know you have more exciting things to do but check for me. I would make some snarky remark about tomorrow night but I'm so sad about my beloved - the love of my life - my Baron - that I'm in a very foul mood. He's just my guy. And I wonder if that's it for him career wise. Sighing.

Would love a report on your Jiko experience. I will be solo at Kidani in a few days and would like to hear about how it went for you. I don't really like sit down restaurants as a solo.

Woo hoo! Yet another wonderful cj9200 report. Will miss your photo's and your lovely daughter too but just enjoy reading about your adventure. Did you get your haircut yet?? Dh did this a couple of weeks ago and just loved it. No pixie dust for him though, just a very nice cut.

Have fun!!!

Tough to answer everyone from an IPad so time sensitive replies first.

Same here. Jiko is great for solo dinners. Ask for the cooking table. Had great conversations with the people sitting next to me and the chefs preparing stuff.

Not an E ticket but interesting. You are led by someone from Africa and they tell you about the restaurant. I was interested in their life and country back home. We were fed soup, zebra domes and the taste of Africa breads with dipping sauces. I enjoyed it. They do it everyday at 4:00. No reservation needed, you just show up at Boma. Congrats on the soon to be Disney fanatic.

Thanks so much! I think that time will work well - right after my afternoon nap/pool time. We've never eaten at either restaurant, so it'll be great to see them and sample.

I hope the vacation continues to go well. Can't wait to read more.

This morning at the Studios. Was going to eat at 50's but the skies were not looking friendly. Made it back the resort just before the rain hit. Right now it is pouring. No idea what to do next. Hopefully it will soon be out of here.

The culinary tour for Jiko sounds interesting...never was there at the right time to do that before.
Hope the rain clears out soon

Guess I got moved to the new place. Looks good.

Last night at AKL and the trip. Spent the morning at DHS and had lunch at 50's. Was going to the MK but was talked out of it by a bartender with a vodka and tonic. Enjoyed the pool bar and and the pool the rest of the afternoon/evening. In deference to DD cramming for finals, I skipped Wall-E which is her favorite Disney movie that was showing tonight.

Whoa! Didn't even notice they had a new TR section! I'll have to check this often for TRs from you, DVCMike and LisaViolet, my fave TR writers! There are a few others, but I know one just sold his points and others, I will catch here as well.

I just hope that someday y'all can read TRs from me again after two canceled trips I'm feelin' pretty bummed and are lovin' yours.
