When you were watching the stewardesses and Minnie do their act did you notice something unusual about Minnie?

Nebo was flabbergasted when I told him I don't really drink...He said "So then why are you reading my TR?" I think he's been suspicious of me ever since.

Ugh, sorry it was such a hot day! One of the benefits of DL is supposed to be that the weather is "always" beautiful there. I'm really looking forward to your WoC pictures - I've heard its a great show. Lady H - I LOVE your new hairdo, it is sooo cute and the color is great on you. Sorry T Man, another vote for the new 'do!

Already commented on the pic... But that line reminds me of a scene they've done a few times on The Big Bang Theory:

Sheldon will mention that if they invent time travel, they will come back to now and tell their current selves... then they pause and look expectantly at the door.
Love that show! (and I'm not just sayin' that to make you feel better.)

Nice update, Mr and Mrs T. I can't wait to see Carsland! I think I would like to drive Route 66 out to see Disney's Route 66! Sorry you missed dinner at GW. We love CPK followed by dessert at Cheesecake Factory. Your restroom bartending skills amaze me!

Nebo, are you gonna take that? Them's fightin' words!

Um, actually, yes, because apparently his IS smart enough to stay wet.



Wait 30-40 minutes for a Primeval Whirl type ride?

Not.

I actually like Primevil Hurl, nothing yells out "Vacation" like having your back go out, and the sciatic nerve shooting down your leg. Oh, I'm sorry, "trickling".



Mandarin's okay though, huh?

I speak fluent Cantonese like the people in Ohio.




Plus, how many would be launched from the apex of the roller coaster?

Apex? Did he just use "apex", to refer to the top of a roller coaster? Oh gag me with a utilitarian kitchen utensil.

Heh. Branded. Just for fun, next time they stamp your hand, scream like you were branded just to see the CMs reaction.

That's good. I wish I had thought of doing that when they still did it a the World.




I had to re-read the entire chapter (not that thatís a bad thing) to figure out what GRR was.

Japanese version of GMR? (Great Roovie Ride)

I was wondering the same thing,
and that's the first thing that popped into my mind too!
I can still picture a Get Smart villian who was Japanese holding up a deformed hand and saying;
"My name is the Craw."

"The Craw?"

"No, not the Craw, The Craw!"





Ah well. But, no. I wouldnít have waited an hour for KRR (or GRR in this case).

Ok, so, I still don't know. It IS Golly River Rapids?



Thatís so true. Many, many of us DISers will make sacrifices to feed our Disney addiction, no?

Yes, and some of us even GO there occasionally!

And thanks for the chapter, Mike! :

Hey! Now Iím only one chapter behind. Woot!
What? That means I am too!

Just because a Foreigner speaks better American English then you do is no reason to be churlish.

Go ahead, look up churlish... I'll wait. :

I remember that! And on a similar vein, The Evil Dr. Yes asks a question and his four henchmen answer (the henchmen are German, Spanish, Russian and French)

Dr. Yes: You agree, yes?
Ya!
Si!
Da!
Oui!

I got bad news for ya then... It'll probably be years before I get back to Disney.

You never know though, here's a true anecdote (it's too short to be a true story).

My eldest DD, Elle, goes to dance class five days a week. Luckily we live fairly close to another family who's DD also goes to the same dance studio, so we split the driving duties. Whenever I drive home from the studio I take "the long way around". It's a longer distance as the crow flies, but it's quicker with higher speeds and fewer lights. One stretch is on a highway that is used to bypass the city.
Every time I get on that stretch of road... and I mean every single freaking time... I always think to myself, "If instead of turning right at the intersection I go one more mile to the next intersection and turn left... in thirty hours I could be in Disney World."

You doubt me? Let me tell you what I used to do about six times a year, ready?

I would wake up at 7am to get to work by 8. I would work from 8 to 4pm. Still with me? Then I'd come home, cook and eat dinner, watch some TV or read or play some video games... then go to work and work from midnight to 8am (been up for 25 hours straight by now). Still with me? Here's where it gets good. I get home shortly after 8am, grab some suitcases, hop back in the car with Ruby and then drive... no let me clarify... Ruby would sit in the passenger seat and I would drive to Winnipeg. No big deal? Well, it was a 12 hour drive. So by the time I finally got to bed, I usually would've been up for 39 - 40 hours straight.

So do you really think I wouldn't make that left turn and drive for 30 hours... to get to Disney????

There's just one problem... THE DRIVE BACK!!!

I don't know if its a good thing or bad thing to be put into the same category as Nebo and Ponzi. I gotta say, I feel honored to be put into this category. Thank you for the kind words. I think.

It will be about 9 months until we get back to Disney. The D to the L that is. It will be a long time until we get back to WDW ourselves, as I mentioned earlier we're going to Hawaii next year. I may have to pick your brain a little and get some info from you as to what sites you used to book your day time excursions.

Is this the same as "it's not the fall that will kill you, but the landing?" But in your case it would be "its not the drive that will kill me, but the falling asleep behind the wheel plowing into the semi truck that will." You know you could always stop at a hotel for the night and sleep. Just a thought.
