Thank you. Glad you're enjoying it. It really helps when you have a cast like Pkondz, Nebo and the rest (sounding like the theme song from Gilligan's Island now) behind you to help add humor to it. Just as long as they don't ask for a raise in their salaries, we'll be able to afford to keep them around. Otherwise, I may have to cut them loose and try to wing it on our own.

If you could wing it, maybe we could get off this crummy island!

Ah, well. At least we have WiFi here.... good 'ol professor Nebo.

Hmmm.... So which one is Marianne and which one is Ginger?

Nebo was right, we need to take the thesaurus away from you. I have no idea what you just said. It sounded good though, whatever it is you were trying to say.

For the most part, they were pretty good, or not. . There's a reason we're calling this chapter The Curse of the Mummy.

Heather thinks men have their own language. Every time my best friend calls, all she hears is "yeah, nuh uh, huh, don't know, eh, ok, later." And that's a whole conversation. Does that qualify as gibberish? Or is that caveman?

How could we miss it? It happened in our state. It was all over the news. Plus I doubt she would do it even for a million dollars. 2 million maybe, but definitely not a million.

Thanks to Lady H, I'm alive. There I was, just chilling. Enjoying my ice cold Coca Cola in one hand and trying to take some pictures with my camera in the other. This thing just came out of no where and grabbed me. Talk about almost being Hasenpfeffer.

Professor Nebo? I was thinking Nebo would be our Ginger since he's the TR star around here. Or could he be....... Nah, better not say it, don't want to age him more than what he already is. Besides that would make Smidgy Mrs and she might throw something at me. I don't want to get them mad at me before I meet up with them next month. Now after we meet up, all's fair in love and postings.

You know, I just cringed when I saw that Ponzi posted before I could get to this, and yep, sure enough, he beat me to it.
I,,,,, was going to say that Kevin Bacon looks like he wants all six degrees of separation from Mike, but again, a day late and a looney short. By the way, Ponzi, am i missing a Smidgy connection with Kevin?


The Mummy is my second favorite ride in Uni Orlando, after Spidey, I'm always afraid my hair is going to start on fire when the ceiling goes up in flames.

What?



As we make our way out of the boat, I realize that I am soaked. Just before getting to the final exit area, another one of those stupid spitters takes a shot at me and lo and behold catches me just as I am taking off my sunglasses to wipe them clean, catching me directly in the eye! That hurt! Oooh...Iíll get you, you little...

That little spitter gets me every time, and by the time I spot them , itj's too late.



Once again, we are greeted with a wonderful, 15 minute wait time. Off to the right, we see a ton of people making their way to the lockers. Since we disposed of our stuff right when we got into the park, we didnít have anything to worry about. So we trudged on.

The longest line I've ever been in. LENGTH wise, has to be Dueling Dragons, at IOA, that's when I found out the wait time translates to "actual walking time".


I however, slowly made my way over to sit next to him, and hurriedly brought the bar down securely on my lap.

Now I have a rule on coasters or rides of any kind. No seat belt or lap bar, itís a great ride and I'm a happy Heather.

Lap bar or seat belt that goes across the hips, a few bumps and shakes, but relatively OK.

Anything that has an over the head harness, means it will probably be going upside down at some point. Time to start freaking out. A not so happy Heather. This is where the mantra starts to kick in.

Anything that has an over the head harness and a seat belt to keep you locked in place, means they are either trying to launch you into space or nothing good can come of this ride except me screaming my head off. Since I am not an astronaut, I think the latter would be the correct answer.

I personally, prefer the lap bar on ALL types of rides, evfen if it goes upside down. I really hate the "You aren't going anywhere no matter what' situation with the overhead harness, I's still much rather have an alternative escape route if needed.
I was once on a crappy coaster at Six Flags Great America, Terminal Velocity, that had the overhead harness that just pinned me into the seat. At the end the ride broke down when in the station, and I was stuck there for 20 minutes before they could release the head restraints.
Well,. the way my mind works, I kept pictureing a fire breaking out on the loading platform, and NOT being able to get out of the car!

And it didn't help those kids in Final Destination, either.
Boy, wasn't that ONE heck of a creepy amusement park?


It has taken me years to get the courage to open my eyes during these rides. Iím such a wuss. This trip, I was bound and determined to actually see what the heck I was afraid of. So as I timidly got in the car and sat next to T-Man, I reminded myself that this only had a lap bar. There is nothing scary about a lap bar. Iím perfectly safe with my lap bar.

(Dumb wife, dumb wife, dumb wife!!!!!)

I'm with Ponzi on this one, I love when you say that.
I liked it when Diane said it sometimes too, although I wish she had refrained from saying it on the night of Nov. 7, 2003 after we got re-married earlier in the day.


Thereís no way out! Unless we go...

BACKWARDS!

or is that SDRAWKCAB?

PRAC! Oh...sorry, I mean CARP!

Well done!

Now Iím the one trying to hurry out of the car, while T-Man is taking his time finding his hat and strolling out.

I would have bet my life the hat would have become a casualty on the ride. I still have one making the rounds on Dinosaur at AK.

I was thankful they had a blueprint of what this actually was, because I wasnít sure.



It's amazing what they are doing with Colorforms nowadays.

Seems like it came from a really big scorpion like robot type thing...

I have never seen anhy of the Transformers movies, never was interested and I'm not a Michael Bay fan, but now that they are building one in Orlando guess I better see one at least, cuz I have no idea what you are talking about. But I can't wait to hear your review of it, I've been told it's a lot like Spidey, and a lot of folks can't believe they are adding it into Orlando since they have Spidey already.

That was my ďIím pushing the red buttonĒ evil face. I promise everyone can open their eyes again. Iím sorry I scared you. I didnít mean it I promise. Look...this is much better.



Since I pushed the buttons, T-Man of course had to outdo me, and press 2 red buttons at the same time. Iím wondering if somewhere in the rest of Universal Park, lights are being turned on and off or rides are being stopped and started as we press all these buttons randomly.

I'm pretty sure, that when you push those buttons, Test Track breaks down again.
Now soldiers, you know what to do. Once the car comes to a full stop, you are going to go as far to the end as you can. Take a seat as quickly as possible and complete your mission. Right?! Right?! Now move Move, MOVE!

We are ushered quickly onto Evac, who kindly does not mind us stampeding onto his back.

Yeah, one hour standing in line,,,, EVAC sounds about right!

Wow...Look at the time. No wonder Iím exhausted. I should hit the hay, I still have to get up for work in the morning ya know....

What? You say I canít leave you hanging like that? That me leaving this chapter at this particular spot is cruel and unusual punishment?

Maybe...but I know youíll be back to find out more...and that in essence is good writing. You will be back right?
WOW, a cliffhanger, how cruel, how cruel ,, who would do such a thing as to make us wait?
Ok, fine, I'll be back.
But you'd never catch me treating my readers this way!

Go ahead, finish it, you were right there anyway, geesh.
Call me Thurston.
Just let me have his money as well.

you know, in early trip writing days, some folk after reading more about my eyes and injuries even went so far as to compare me to Mr. Magoo, you know.
AND guess who got to voice both characters?


But I wasn't a Ginger fan, I was in the Mary Ann group, loved that belly button.
If you make me Mary Ann, do I have to show my belly button?

Hello? Not sure if you remember me - I was reading your TR before moving and being pretty much without internet while staying with relatives. We finally have our own place- trying to catch up on a zillion reports now!

I'm only up to the anniversary dinner now . Your dinner looks wonderful. Hard to find such a tender steak these days. And, I might add, the two of you clean up pretty well too!

14 mph speed limit - Maybe they put Mad Hatter in charge of the parking lot!

Not really settled, but we almost got the kitchen unpacked today. We have downsized by about half, and thought we got rid of half our stuff, but we are finding we have so many dishes and cookware that we have no room for food!

We just moved in on Thursday and with working, social things, etc. Today was actually our first "unpacking" day - lots more to go. We got a cute place in Ahwatukee, right near the trail up South Mountain, and near the Arizona Grand, which we joined for the pools and gym. 7 miles to work for DH, and I am working from here. We are happy to have our own space for sure! Thanks for asking! If you and Lady H are in town, let me know - it would be fun to meet up!

Nothing to be nervous about. If you are a potter fan, then you will be more into everything else going on around you to be bothered with the actual ride. If I remember correctly, the thing you do have to be worried about, and some have already commented on it i think, is how dark it does get. Especially when you've been walking outside in the line for so long. Also, once you are ready to get into the ride, it has that conveyor belt thing that sort of tried to take off without you. Sort of like Haunted Mansion. Of course I've only been on it once, and i can't remember off hand. Maybe others can attest to this.

As for the escalators at Uni...I want to say there was an elevator off to the Jurassic Park Ride side. But then you wouldn't be able to make fun of the people trying to climb the actual stairs, or see the skyline pop out in front of you.

Welcome back! I wondered where you had disappeared to. I remember how crazy moving can be, so my prayers are with you my dear. I hope you can settle in soon without the worry of boxes. Although, not to put a damper on it or anything, but we have been in our house now for almost 5 years and we still have boxes of stuff in the garage...

And thanks, After having to dress up for work on a regular basis, it's always so nice to just put on jeans or shorts and a t-shirt for the parks, but I would feel silly walking into a place like this dressed like a bum. The one thing I won't do is wear heels while on vacation. I just can't do it.

That would be a Mad Hatter sort of thing to do wouldn't it?

As for letting you know if we are ever in your neck of the woods, we would be happy to. I don't know when that would be, but with the way T-Man talks about wanting to go on road trips just to hit up a Shula's and the closest one being in AZ, it could be sooner rather than later.

Thanks so much! I hope to get another chapter up soon. Depending on how the undercover op that i was thrown into goes today, maybe I can get working on it this afternoon. I've got high hopes...

Well get a move on girl! Just kidding...To be honest, I've been trying to keep up on yours as much as possible, just haven't been posting. (I know, bad lady H!). I promise to do better. I have to catch up on your last 2 chapters I think. Hopefully that can come this afternoon as well.

I am not worried about the dark!I'm not talking about Nebo's worries, I'm talking about MINE!! I am petrified of heights, don't like roller coasters. first time I rode both soaringm, spider man, and mummy, I was scared to death.

I hear it almost has you go upside down in the spider scene, and you zip around quite a bit. a simulator, which makes you FEEL like you are on a fast roller coaster. which I don't like..... I grudingly do space mountain, that's about my limit.. I don't do everest. I know, I'm a scardey cat!

If you like Spider-man, then I really think you'll enjoy this ride. It is a lot like Spider-man, part props part simulator. You're not high off the ground like you are on roller coasters. Yes, the simulator motion will make it feel like you are higher than you actually are. You are actually much higher on Soarin' then you are on FJ. And probably feel like you're going fast, but you go faster on Space Mountain and Mummy. Given the rides you mentioned, if you can handle those, then you can handle FJ. That's my opinion anyways.
