    :thumbsup2 They're Lime Green Mickey Heads, formerly known as Alien Green Behr paint chips from Home Depot.

    Lime Green Mickey Head Paint Chip. Or LGMH for short. They are Mickey shaped paint sample cards from Home Depot (Hardware superstore). The DIS's have adopted the color "Alien Green" as a way of recognizing each other in the parks and resorts.

    I don't have any pictures of them, but I Am laminating a couple as luggage tags and attactched one to my camera bag/backpack. (with my forum name scribbled on them)

    While not to come down on anybody for taking things a bit too far, I prefer to keep the symbolism of the LGMH a bit more low-key. I think it preserves the novelty of it all.

    THIRTY DAYS TODAY!!!!! ONE MONTH!!!!

    Darn, I am leaving in 2 days and we don't have a home depot! Are they only avaliable there? Can you get them at Lowe's or Mendards? That is all we have!

    As far as I can tell, it's only Home Depot. Now with only one day left, you most likely have more things to do than time, but a lot of Home Depotly-challenged folks just use bright green construction paper and sissors.

    Come to think of it, with one day to go, you probably don't have time to read this anyway... But if you do (and even if you don't) have fun and enjoy :teeth:

    I may be the only one, but I just cut my mickey heads out of the lime green Astro Brite paper. Then I can make them on the computer with our names, and laminate them for bag tags. Can make them bigger for the resort windows too!

    Great idea Kaybird! I am punching holes in my LGMH and stringing them into a garland with lime green ribbon so I can string them across our door and window at the Poly. I'm also putting one or two on my Baggallini and one on my pin lanyard. Can't have too many!
