It was number 1 in the UK charts for 16 weeks
Chapter 35. Tuesday, February 5th. Day 6. Part 5. A meltdown.
So when I last left you. We had just finished the Maharajah Jungle Trek and as evidenced by the picture of me on the bench, I was more than ready to go back to the room.....
As we walked to the exit of Asia, we noticed a crowd of people. Hmmm....what's going on?
It's a bit past 4pm........it's the Jammin Jungle Parade of course.
If you've read any of my PTR, you know I am NOT a parade type of guy. Not that I bag on anyone who is into them. I'm just not into them myself.
Of course, RoboJo's friends want to stay and watch the parade. I know Derek wants to go back to the room by the look on his face. Kim and I aren't thrilled. But if you know the Japanese culture, we don't like to make waves even if it means inconveniencing ourselves. So we stick around.....
So here's my meltdown.........in my head:
" I can't believe I have to sit here and watch this stupid parade."
"Don't they know that I ate Onion Rings for lunch? I'm ready to explode. Quick someone find me a Depends..."
"Do they know how much angst they caused me with all the ADR changing before the trip...and all for nothing!!!!"
Well...we stayed and watched the parade....I got off some shots:
For Dan (FauntleroyFan07). Donald, me and the tongue:
LOOK!!! Mickey's a DISer!!!! He's sportin' his Lime Green....Props.
After the parade, I caught a pix of RoboJo and her friends:
We went our separate ways......
Joshie, Robo, Baby J, Kim, Derek, Dylan and I trucked to the entrance and caught the bus back to BCV. We had good bus mojo both coming and going. No wait...at all......sweeeet.
Once we got back to the room, we all crashed.
Here's Kim and a long lost friend:
Here's me and how I was feeling all day after eating the Onion Rings:

LOL! I'm not really a parade person either.
Jordan - you crack me up! I hope you enjoyed the parade at least a little bit! Love the meltdown in your head! And the last picture...
I almost fell off the chair reading this.
glad u made it back to the room.
I never saw the parade at AK, I do want to next time.
love the pic of Kim and flat Winkers. Spoonin'
Not a parade person myself.
BTW, ever think of writing something other than a TR and sermon?
Well worth the short wait for your update!
Stay away from those onions!
Our cultures couldn't be more opposite, I'm a very opinionated Italian, Irish, American Indian mix!
If I don't like it, you will know.
I saw the Ak parade in 1998. If it hasn't changed, I don't need to see it again.
I never would have been able to keep that all inside...it would have been like a nuclear plant meltdown.
Well...duh...of course, he is (channeling of my 10-year-old).
Go to sleep...go to sleep...go to sleep, Kim and Flat Winkers...
I know that feeling! Onions have the same effect on me, but I cannot resist their siren call!
I hate getting stuck in a parade. :made:
I think it's just me and you bro. Everyone else loves them.
Buzzman culture is different. If I'm inconvenienced, I drink more beer.
We all need a good meltdown. Your's was similar to the ones I have just prior to going to church.
Seems to be a lot of pictures with you and your tongue. Japanese culture?
Loved the update! I skipped the parades EXCEPT Spectro this trip too, but I'm sure next year with the gang we will be doing them!!
The diatribe in your head made me laugh! I have never seen the AK parade and never had a desire to do so...I do enjoy the MK parade, but I'm ready for a new one.
hi, jordan! i've seen you over on winkers' TR and i decided to join in on your fun, too! i gotta say....i love how organized your TR is.
i'm just starting with my reading so i'm WAY behind, but i'm looking forward to catching up.
by the way, i've got a pre-TR going (hint......hint... ) it's nice to "meet" you!
oh, and i'm also marking my place...post 1244!
I like the parades but the rest of my gang isn't interested
Awww...you were prolly just tired
Didn't you pack Rolaids? I carry them with me all the time
Blah! Parades! Yuck.... wait not unless it's Spectromagic or MEP)Main St. Electrical Parade).
OMG! You totally owe me a new monitor!! Mad props to you my friend for holding it all in - no pun intended.
Now that's funny!
I don't like the parades either. The only one I've ever watched is the MNSSHP parade. You're a trooper for sitting through it!
Who had the melt-down? You in your head?
In the words of Rosanne Rosannadana, "Never Mind."
No. I was out bidded. I'll keep looking. Might have to pay full price.
These two pics made me laugh.
I like the parade but the rest of my family doesn't.
Best parade to view is the night time parade at MK on top of Splash Mountain.
Only get to see it for a little bit, but it's breath taking.
We are parade people and would have stayed too
You know when my 4 year old has a meltdown like that he gets a time out...just sayin
