Well, I'm back to the DIS after a long hiatus, for some good and not-so-good reasons. But I'm happy to have time to DIS again and I see I have a lot of trip report to catch up on.

Welcome back Barb, I wondered where you were, I was thinking maybe it was something Ponzi had said.

And Cindy,, if you really feel the need to read other people's trip reports,,, well, I guess I can 't stop you.
I just don't want to hear about it, ok? I hate it when out of the blue you are now being compared to somebody else, like which one makes you feel better,,,,and I better leave that right there.

Yes,, I know, I've fallen off the map, I'm now in the trunk, under the spare tire and the flat soccer ball, so it's time to get to work. Hopefully, I have shown, since I've grown, alone, that I can atone , before I'm dethroned,,, or worse,,(stoned).

(moan)

hmm,,, ok,,, so we arent' off to a good start.

Either way,,,new chapter coming your way,, and that's what I pray, if I may, on this day,,,,in the month before May,,,,,,

Honest
Really, truly.

You might just like a little of the next chapter.

Maybe even a sentance or two, even.

It's been really hard with the writers on strike again.

I've turned to Backstage Gal to do my jokes for me, and she's pretty durn good.

As long as I can keep her from writing and singing about eating worms.

But I still have a couple of encounters from this last trip to recount, in this report, hopefully, berore we leave next week,,,the Bunnies and Stephanie, AKA,,, Nowells.
Yes Steph,,,, haven't forgotten about you,,,, and don't worry,,,, I won't whitewash our lunch together,,, I'll tell it like it happened,,,,I am WAY beyond looking for respect from anybody anymore, just don't say anything till I get there about the griddle,,, ok?

ok,, back to work,,,,,,,

Ok,, gonna go see what else whe sent me,,,,,,,,

Oh dear, if you are counting on me for funny inspiration, you are in deep, deep doo-doo!

XOXOXOX
Hope you get your muse back. Don't you hate it when she leaves? Not that I would know, she never visited me

Chapter 14,,, Almost a Bunny Story

Well mon, this was supposed to be a "Meet the Thumps" chapter,,,,but as is wont to happen with me,,, I got tridesacked and unless something changes after I write this,,, i'm going to come up a tad short.

This is probably a good thing,,, it lets me be friends with them for at least another couplle days , since what I try to pass off as humor isn't always received that way once it gois through the interpreter and spell chick.

check.

So, I've got to see what I have so far;
this is where I go back and read what I've done,, and now try to add/embellish, to what might have been a completly normal, ok, chapter,,, and then ruin it for all eternity.

LET THE RUINATION BEGIN!

_______________________________________________


Boy,, this next chapter is going to be a killer,,, since it's going to be my last one!

I mean ,,, for this report,,,before the death threats start.

And my dear Marita,,,, could you please send me your cell phone number? Via personal message? IF possible,,, we'd really like to see you again,,, been a long time.
And I promise that if we do, I'll do my best to NOT show up with blood on my shirt again.
Or face, arms or legs,,,,
Never did find out that time, I think, where I was bleeding from.
( My body just does it sometimes when it's bored, no, I have no idear why.)

You won't believe what it does sometimes when it's excited!
No, not going there.

(hmm, no wonder nobody ever wants to meet up with me anymore)

______________________________________________



Ok, once again boys and girls,, it's time to display in writing how stupid I can be.
At two in the morning.

As of this writing,,, the upcoming incident ocurred 4 days ago.

Or would that be nights ago?

And how can it be "upcoming" when it happened 4 days/nights ago?

And why can't I just tell a story?
I know I have laughed at Buzz for having her Giggle box turned up the couple times we talked on the phone,,,but I am surprised she hasn't turned it around on me for the usage and over usage of my "babble box". No wonder Babylon was destroyed! And that doesn't look right either, no, something's not quite right there, and why would God want to destroy a little baby named Lon?
Can you imagine what these reports would be like if I took amphetamines? We'd still be in the taxi on the way down! Good Grief!

Ok, so now,,, what can I do for you?

And yes,,, I do prefer the chapters when I'm babbling a lot more and making a jerk out of myself,,,, than when I have to keep looking into P-Bucket for pictures. Unless you are really clever with P-Shop and know how to make things funny with altered Pics Like Ponzi is,,, well,,,that's not me,,, I do better I think with woids, and woids alone.

Oh no,,, did I just say that outloud about "Sargeant Ponzi of the Yukon?" Well, maybe he'll miss it,, if so,,, please,, you don't have to run off and say that I said something nice about him,,,,,'K?

What was the question again? Ok, commercial over, back to the game:

And yes,,, once again, the setting is the bathroom.

Nebo, in the bathroom.

With the Candlestick.

And Miss Scarlet.

No, I don't go both ways like Professor Plum.

And I'll never talk about Colonial Mustard again!
Not if I want to live.
I had no idea that a Collender, used with Hot Dog tongs,, could actually,,, uh,,, never mind,, but I'm sure most of you know what I'm talking about.

Oh yeag,,,back to miss Scarlet. Yes , you are correct, I don't have a Clue!

I think that was her name. The only other female I could recall was a Mrs White, I believe,,, but she's too old for me.

Not to mention that she's also a Cub's fan.

Oh yes,,, back to the bathroom;
Geesh, I do this a lot now;
No,, I don't mean get sidetracked when I'm writing,,,

I mean go back to the bathroom!

Did you know that there are places you can actually sit down at in there?

But, I digest.



You would think that with all the quality time I spend in them that they would treat me better, but no,,, doesn't work that way.

Allright, let me describe things:

This is a "powder room" bathroom,,, just a toily and a pedestal type sink,, next to it,,, a few feet away.
But as far as pedestal type sinks go, this one is huge!

And, it is HARD!

It was forged in the fires of Mt Doom, in Mordor, and has a mystic, hard to read, latin inscription, that I had to get the TidyBowl guy over to translate for us,,,, "One sink to rule them all, and in the night bind them."

( or in my case, "blind them")

It was down the P-trap of this sink that Frodo was able to destroy the ring when he tossed it in. Otherwise, we'd all be eating fishes with Smeagol every night for dinner.

Gee, I've really put this sink on a pedestal, havent' I?

OW,,,, there, I just punched myself in the ribs for that last one.

It's ok,,, if I hadn't,,, The Great and Wonderful Smidgy of Oz would have done it anyway, and probably harder than I just did!
But that's ok too, I just hate it when she yells out that;
"COME FORWARD" part.
But you never know when you get a Smidgy of a different color. It has made things interesting a couple of times first thing in the morning though when you forget,,,,The BLUE Smidgy in particular got me,,,,, I thought I had slept with a Smurf!
ok, ok,,,, the cattle are dying, the crops are dead and I'm back to Rich Little doing his Babylon Impressions;

So,, here's what happened:

At around two in the morning,, I had to take a leak.
( take it easy, take it easy,,, it's a natural function, and it still sounds better than to say I had to go pee pee,,, and you tell ME the last time somebody came up to you and said,,," Please excuse me,,, I need to go and urinate now. "
Which sounds like a planetory expedition, especially since it's right next to Uranus,,,,and,,, once again,,, I need,,,, really , really need,,, to shut up.

Back to the story,,, I'm going to go "tinkle",,,in the middle of the night,,, and no,

I didn't put my glasses on.

Did you mentally cue the ominous music?

And no,,, it's not "Tinkle Tinkle Little Star."

(hmm,,, what's with the "little" part?) never mind

To cut to the chase,, and see if I can stick to the story for 5 minutes,, I missed the toilet.

Oh no,,, not how you are thinking rigtht now,,, like a young boy will miss the toilet a lot,,, I mean I MISSED the toilet!

You see,,, I know better than to try standing there and aim,,,, way too many times you can get that sudden "fork in the road" , where now only one stream is going where itj's supposed to, kind of like a wandering, or lazy eye and no, I am NOT going to try and name this syndrome,,but I'm sure there is not a singel guy out there that doesn't know what I'm talking about, so in the middle of the night,,, instead of being a "pointer", I turn into a "setter", and I play it safe and just sit down.

And I think I may have just broken my all time comma record in a single sentance!
Now, as far as setters go:

Is there a breed named a German Setter?

Anyway,,, I "Set" allright!

I pretty much missed the seat completely, wasn't even close!

No pole to try and grab for, and once again I'm falling backward!

This is starting to get old!

When you are in the middle of hurting yourself,, and the upcoming injury is already boring you, beFORE it happens,,,, something is wrong,,, truly, duly,, really deeply,,,,
WRONG!

Came pretty close to being impaled on that stupid brush she keeps in that stupid holder in there,,, but let's not go there. I can' already see Ponzi and Mike twitching and cringing. And yes,,, that can't help but bring up the image of William Wallace,,( aka, Mel Gibson) screaming out, "Freedom"!! when it happened to him.

And no, it wasn't a toily brush.
At least I don't think so,,, gonna have to ask the Tidy Bowl guy to make sure.

And so,,, with nothing to stop my now "free flight" on the "Toilet of Terror" I'm falling backward, into nothingness. '

Again.

But not for long.

The back of my head broke my fall.

On the pedestal sink on a pedestal, that was forged in the fires of Mt Doom in Mordor, under the control of the evil Orcs, that lived in the house that Jack built.
sorry

The back of my head.

Again.

On the left side.

Again.

Same exact spot!

My noggin is foggin,,,

Again.

(why can I picture that being in my Avatar tomorrow morning?)

I am not making any of this up,,, ask Smidgy.

And so,,, I would like to end this chapter prologue,,, with just one word,,,,, oh, c'mon,,, you know the word....Come join, me, come join me,,,,Carrie,,, you can start it out,,, "K?

SQUEEEE!
_______________________________________________

It's now saturday, or, as a Twilight Zone episode was named after a short story, Shatterday.

But no, nothing bad happened that day,,, pretty much same ol' same ol' at the Studios.

We took a mid-day break and went back to the Main CBR pool since it was so nice out. And of course,, the Yellow Jackets soon followed us in.

Ok, fine,, we'll go with the flow. They started doing a Disney Music trivia contest,,,, Diane went and got paper and pens for us to play with.
This took a good half ;hour or so,,,, when it was done,,, she turned in our test paper. I had lost interest by the third question,,, but Diane would't let me, so I stayed with it and tried ot give my great nuggets of wisdom to OUR team answer sheet as wont was required.

Behind the YJs is a box, containing stuffage that the winner can choose a prize from.

Have you ever seen a blind man of an inner city corner, selling pencils?
Trust me,,, he had better, higher quality items in his invetory.

Another 20 minutes goes by as the scores are tallied.

Pressure mounts.
You can cut the tension with a knife, it was so thick!

I dozed off.

I was awakened with a shout over the shoutspeaker"
"And the winner is......

For our Caribbean Beach Disney Music trivia contest,,,,

,,,, that many found to be pretty difficult....."

" With a score of 24 out of a possible 28"

I dozed off again.


"Nebbo and Smiggy!"

that's the way it came out,, not the way it was written on the paper.

I'm pretty sure I was "Nebbo". But don't hold me to it.

"Smiggy" went up and collected our prize.
She told me she chose what looked like the most expensive item in the box; I think it was a whistle!

Of Bugs Bunny!

Which she then tossed to a kid sitting nearby.

We then left to get ready for Hoop de Doo.

I'm not exactly where this picture came in,,, maybe when I see it blown up I will,, but pretty sure it was on the way to Fort Wilderness that night.

IMG]http://i111.photobucket.com/albums/n126/nebo100/UniandCbr/100_2319.jpg[/IMG]

And, just one from Hoop de Doo this time:



Ok,, this was just a warm up for pictures.

By the way,,, if you haven't done Hoop De Doo before,,, Doo it. It's not cheap,,, but it's a lot of food and fun entertainment, plus beer and wine are all you can drink as well,,, providing you can find your server.

I'm going to fire up the old projector now,, so everyone pull up a chair and don't complain,,, it won't take too long.
Yes,,, of Course I took more pictures of the Ozzie Lights











Hang in there,,, we're getting there:




Oh no,,, the dreaded video as well!





Ah heck with it,,, that's enough.

It really was a madhouse near the Osbourne Lights though. And with that we are going to slide right into Sunday,,, our Animal Kingdom day.

And at 3 pm, we will hopefully rendezvous with the Thumper Party at the Dawa bar.

_______________________________________________

Geesh,,, I've been working on this chapter for so long,, I could swear I have posted a lot of it already. But anyway,,, hope it was entertaining to all of you,,, or at least some of you,,,ok ok,,,I'll settle for one of you,,, and Smidgy,, you don't count,,,well,,, un less I need you to,,,

Guten abend one and all,,, hugs and kisses, as well.

Nebo!!

Are you really trying to get out of meeting the Buzz family? You can just tell me you want to avoid my maniacal giggle box and stop hurting yourself by missing the toilet seat completely! Yeesh, the things some people will do to avoid a meet!

You had me laughing though, pretty hard I must admit. I like your tangents the best I think!

I would love, love to meet Marita, if she can escape her job duties for a little while. It might not work out, but I think she is pretty terrific!

Take care Nebo, and for pete's sake.....look before you sit!!!

Never did find out that time, I think, where I was bleeding from.
( My body just does it sometimes when it's bored, no, I have no idear why.)

Well, dear Nebo, I would love to send you my cell number, if I had one anymore. You see, about last September, my vigilant CC Company placed a fraud alert on my card, that I never found out about until months later, since we didnt play back the phone message they allegedly sent, since we get about 5 mill calls a day despite being on the "DO not call" list. Anyway, since my cell was via Virgin Mobile, which is a month to month, and they couldnt charge my card anymore, my number was cancelled. And I didnt read the email....
Now, you might have correctly deduced that I don't use my cell phone much, basically just for emergencies. Which I ironically had in the form of a flat tire not long ago. That is the day I found out that my phone number no longer worked!
So I sat in someones office and happened to give AAA the wrong contact number, which I did not realize until I got an email from someone at Disney who had the number I erroneously gave AAA after I got home.
He directed them to my office number, where I was not at during that time. I eventually got rescued, though.
So long story short, I dont currently have a cell number to pm you, but when I do, I will send it. I am pining for a new fancy phone, so I have been holding off on reinstating my Virgin account. And of course I havent gone shopping for a new fancy phone that I wont use. because I hate shopping and I need someone to go with me that has a clue.

Aren't you sorry you asked?

PS: Nobody loves me, nobody calls me, I'm gonna eat me some worms
Big fat juicy ones,
Eensie weensy squeensy ones,
See how they wiggle and squirm!

Gee, I've really put this sink on a pedestal, havent' I?

*******************
too funny! the whole chapter, really. and Ilike the way you avoid the whole revue/review thing by just calling it hoop de doo.

nebo's right, even though the show is corny, it's fun, and the food is great. fried chicken, ribs, beans, etc. includes the beer, wine AND tip! nice little boat ride over there and back, too.

I'll bet all you guys think Nebo just babbles on his reports. nope, he really talks that way! ok, not all the time.

nebocouldn't beleive I ddin't know about his most recent injury. hey, I had my fan on for white noise and snoozed right through all the fun.. sounds painful! but nice of you to injure ourself for our amusement.

now, please, no more "antics" before the trip... pleease?? now, make that until AFTER the trip!

Better Late Than Never

Hi Nebo (and Smidgy)!

I'm venturing out of lurkdom once again to say I'm really enjoying the report! Although I think I've gained five pounds reading it since y'all flung a craving on me...I've caught up reading while snacking on cheese grits. I do love grits and they are ever so much better with lots of garlic, cheese, and butter in them. Plus, grits are best with a side of crunchy bacon! So, thanks for once again delivering a top notch entertaining recap of your adventures. I'll be reading the next chapter on the treadmill.

Lisa
