    Ever since I happened upon Rob's "Big, Fat, Gay Wedding" thread, which grabbed my attention as I was scrolling down looking for something entertaining among the threads, I have had my nose all up in y'all's business. I am perhaps long overdue in telling you my stuff too.

    My name is Mary. I work as a volunteer at the Disney Family Museum in San Francisco and really love theme parks.

    I am not a native of San Francisco, but I have lived here more than half of my life because I first came here in 1985 when I was 23. After leaving very briefly in 1986, I returned to San Francisco in 1987 and have been here ever since and have been a tenant in the same apartment since 1988, with the same landlord until he died last September, so my screen name comes from my long-term residency here.

    I am legally married to a man. I have been asked some over the years "Why did you marry that (insert homophobic slur) because my husband is just not macho enough to suit such people. I don't care if he is gay or not. We have been together since 1984, and he is my only next of kin since I have no other family. Since he is estranged from his family for a number of reasons I don't fully understand, we are a family of two. I mentioned the death of Bruce the week of his death and that I was concerned about Bob to my husband. My husband said soon afterward that when one of us dies it is going to be hell for the other one. Then came the news about Rob so soon after the death of his mother, and I shuddered for his husband Scott. My husband's name is also Scott by the way.

    I love both Disneyland and Disney World. My favorite park at Disneyland is the Magic Kingdom, even though I really love Soarin' over in California Adventure. My favorite park at Disney World is EPCOT. My biggest Disney favorite is It's A Small World. People have teased me that I am too sugary, but there is a reason that that ride has been in operation since 1964. Deep down in places that the proud cynics may be embarrassed to talk about, its message is one that we all want to believe.

    We might be moving to Florida soon. My husband has been wanting to for over three years now. I was too afraid to take the chance since we have rent control here and know our way around the city etc. Since companies were leaving California at the rate of four per week in 2010, which is expected to increase in 2011, maybe the time has come for us to make that move Scott wants so badly.

    Maybe me dumb lady, but I don't know how to post a picture here.

    Hello All!
    My name is Ruth hence the Ruthless, and I was born in 1967. My high school boyfriend gave me the name Ruthless and I absolutely loved it!

    I am in a committed relationship and am in the process of moving from Austin, TX to Orlando! We have 4 dogs, 2 cats and 2 kids...the boy is staying here since he is at boarding school here.

    My favorite movie is Snow White, my grandfather used to read me the story when I was little and tell me I was his little Snow White.

    I love All of the parks. Picking a favorite park is like picking a favorite child!

    My favorite place to stay at Disney is Fort Wilderness, guess that's the Texan in me.

    I got married at Disney in 2001, and when I got divorced 3 years later me and the kids went there to "celebrate".

    You need a third party such as Photobucket. Once you get the hang of it it's really easy! :thumbsup2

    Best Experience at Disney: dressing as Imagination Movers for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. Everyone stopped us to take photos with their kids. Even park employees stopped us thinking we were really Rich and Dave. I loved it, Chris HATED it, says we can never dress as them again!

    Will be returning to WDW Sept 29th to Oct 9th for the Food and Wine Fest, probably staying at Bay Lake Tower, but may switch to Boardwalk.


    By the way, how do I insert a photo???

    Hi, my name is Chuck.. I've used Chuckers for years now and many people call me Chuckers. I am a 45 year old single bear. I currently live outside Atlanta, GA. I have moved 26 times in my life and have lived in Orange County - CA, Chicago Burbs, South Florida, New Jersey, and I am originally from New York.

    I spent my 40th Birthday in the Magic Kingdom and would love my 50th to be in EuroDisney.

    I lived in CA for 3+ years and went to DL weekly.. I miss those trips ALOT! It made Disneyland my favorite park - except when it's over crowded!

    My favorite character has to be Grumpy, followed by Chip & Dale.
    Favorite Princess: Belle
    Favorite Prince: Don't have one, but I think the King from Tangled is HOT!
    My favorite movie is Toy Story 3, but the opening of Lion King makes me cry every time.

    I have a very odd talent of being able to "hang" things from my forehead.. as seen in the first two pictures below, I am showing off my talent in the Tomorrowland gift shop. The 3rd picture is from the Epcot's Dolphins in Depth Tour and that's me with Kaiber.

    I am REALLY REALLY REALLY looking forward to my first solo WDW trip in May.

    Hematite is a mineralogists name for a specific type of iron oxide (there are many iron oxides). I first started collecting rocks as a small child with my grandfather and ended up carrying a piece of hematite with me for about a decade starting in my teens. Now, it's a good reminder of my past as a geologist. The 153 was my postcode the first time I joined an online forum.

    marital status: married (to my wife...yes, we can do that in Canada, too) for 6.5 years.
    We're also about to have our first child. After 7 years of infertility treatments desperately trying to get either one of us pregnant we hit upon success last summer and I'm now 34 weeks pregnant -- we're desperately excited...and a little aware of all the things we HAVEN'T done to get ready yet.

    favourite Disney park: AK
    favourite Disney movie: (I don't actually like most Disney movies - Ack!)
    Thus, I also don't really have a favourite character, but, I do have a soft-spot for Tigger because we had a cat with the same personality and a stripped tail who was nicknamed "our tigger-boy".

    Location: I live in Canada now. I have lived in PA, NJ, Australia, Japan and Canada. I love to travel, but, have been fairly settled for the past decade. Being settled has its advantages -- I was able to do fertility treatments and we purchased DVC 5 years ago -- but, I miss traveling too. We're likely fixed in general location for the next 20+ years, but, I hope we'll travel a bit every few years.

    Congratulation Psychnurse. You didn't sound very confident, but you did it.

    I couldn't get my link to work last night. You look young though so you probably grew up with computers. I am so low-tech that I am practically Amish by 21st Century standards. Well, maybe not since some of them have web sites to sell their quilts and stuff. Of course, when I was a little girl a computer took up an entire room; and I remember staring at one, which was blinking in a dark room, while I stood in the doorway and stared at it in awe. If anyone had locked me in the room with that thing, I would have needed a psych professional!
