maraita, marita.. I DO have a cell phone.. just a cheapo "pay as you go" phone. we got tired of the check in scenario "ok give us your cell # and we'll call you when your room is ready" me"we don't have a cell phone" them "it would be easier if we could just call your cell" me "that might be true, but I don't HAVE one!!" etc etc.

that and being on the road for drives down, it seemed to make sense. and I thought I should have one for my late night drives home from work.

so now it sits in the bottom of my purse, uncharged half the time!


great chapter ponzi! I thought sure you would miss your flight. the story about your dad reminds me of the time I had my dad take steve home from a downtown chicago hospital a day after his initial foot surgery. nebo said he barely survived that ride home, my dad going about 45 on the expressway.

ok, one question: is tipping cabs the same as tipping servers in Canada? I was thinking maybe she the dispatcher was mumbling cause of the 5% tip? dont' kill me now!!! just askin'. (cause in the usa I always tip 20%)

I cannot imagine such a long layover and long flight! yikes!

I can't wait to hear what happens next!

I have no idea when this turned into a trial, but I object. No evidence has been provided of alleged bet. I move for a mistrial due to prosecution bribery.

One thing to keep in mind, there is also an appeals process. And you know how long those can drag out.

Who is this "her" that you refer to? Do you mean Lady H? 'Cause she's probably on my side here!

Was it a typo? Hmmmmm? Did you mean "here"???? And just where do you think this TR is originating from?


My TR... My rules...

(Except for when I get a warning from the mods.... but that's a different story!)

My TR. Motion denied. Right to a trial granted... and judgement has been found (everybody loves a speedy trial):

You owe Marita one V&A dinner provided the Jury votes in favor.

Motion denied. And just a hint... you might want to vote "nay"... even though you'll be labeled a poop.

Or you could just come clean and surrender to the inevitable.

I think that's a real hornet's nest. I know some people tip cabbies 20%, some don't tip at all and some are somewhere in between.

I usually tip a cabbie a couple or three bucks. More if he's moving my bags... usually a buck or two a bag. I feel that the fare is exorbitant already so I don't feel a need to add to my pain!

In other instances for other services I tip quite well. Example would be for a haircut. I tip the stylist on average about 25-30%. Later on in the TR (hopefully I'll remember to mention it.) you'll see how much I tipped a particular tour guide.

It wasn't too bad since we had something to do. If we'd been stuck at the airport.... Wait. That happened on our last flight from MCO to MSP. The plane broke down and we were delayed about 6 hours... so we spent about 8 hours at that airport... not knowing when (or if) we'd get going.

Now that was brutal!

Yes, you did. And I vetoed it. I knew darn well that we had a plane to catch and I'd never get you out of there!

And see Marita when we're down there for your ZD (and mine too.)

I know exactly how long an appeal would last. Wanna place another bet on how that would go?

Gee, this Judge business isn't so hard. I don't know what all the fuss is about.

Keep in mind; rules only apply to those who choose to partake in this TR.

Since T_Man chooses to march to the beat of his own drum.

I DON'T NEED RULES!

Pkondz, great chapter! I know, I know I'm late. I've had a string of really early mornings at work combined with late afternoons and with a teething baby....heck, I just might be able to actually sleep in coach if I were there now. That's when you know you are tired!

What a layover! I think my longest layover has been 5 hours, which was a tough haul for me. I always feel so restless....I just want to feel the forward progress, you know? I don't think I would handle purgatory too well!

And if I can interject my opinion, I always vote on drawing out the Nebo/degrees of Kevin Bacon TRs. I feel like we are all friends and it's great to get to share and talk to you all.

I know I need to catch up reading the Thumper's TR. It's been so busy. Hopefully the Thumpers know I love them!

Wait, wait, wait! You know you will be getting, yes, let's use the word despite the risk of psychological trauma as a result of withdrawal, zebra domes, from me. Especially now that we have the ND route figured out. The only limitation we have is getting me back to WDW so I can send them to you and your family. Consider it one of my missions. And there's also the offer of "eat your weight" in zebra domes at Boma dinner someday.

I am not sure how I missed the most recent update

It seems that any air travel can make or break a vacation You either start off on the right foot with a nice flight there or are more anxious to get there with a horrible flight. Then coming back can either be a breeze or you have a terrible flight and end up more excited to come home

I can't wait to hear about Paris!

Gee, wish I'd know about that earlier. I could've borrowed baby buzzette for a few days then had a nice sleep on the plane.

That might've been purgatory... but I have a picture of hell from later in the trip.

Nope. They told me that they feel rejected by you and are very sad and upset.

But you'll always be loved here.
