    :wave2:Good afternoon to all singles/ex-singles, I'm done lurking. Time to jump in and participate :goodvibes

    I could use a little Florida sunshine right about now, I am not looking forward to winter in New England.

    I might have to request a little something from the bartender to add to my coffee to warm up today ;)

    ^^^ I have always believed that when Starbucks asks if you want an extra shot in your coffee, they should be talking about Baileys or something!

    Okay, so I want to get this thread moving a bit so I am going to ask questions. . .generic types but Disney related. Oh, and welcome to the newbies and the newly unlurking ones. . .lol.

    Question #1:

    We all know we are crazy about Disney and sometimes do solo trips, but do you plan solo vacations anywhere else besides Disney? If so, where?

    Welcome. I'm in Connecticut too, I'm not ready for the cold either. We hit someplace warm in the winter because I need the sun. Everyone on here is really nice just jump right in.

    You really can't get much better than Starbucks and a shot of Bailey. Well maybe sipping a glass or two of wine on a balcony with a great view. If you stick around you might find out about my great love of wine.:rolleyes1

    Hey girlie! I know you already know the answer to your question but will answer. I never have traveled solo only flying solo. As much as we love WDW, we have taken a few trips this year. So far I have hit Cancun, Geneva, Paris, and WDW. Hopefully you and Tony are working on those passports, you know that you have a place to stay,;). Have a great time next week, we miss you guys too!

    Welcome!

    I'm loving the weather out here in the desert that's for sure! I don't envy you folks up in the north at all.

    *add's some baileys and a shot of irish whiskey to DMOMof3's coffee* :coffee: enjoy! :thumbsup2

    Wow, I finally enter the room and everyone leaves :confused3

    In response to Question #1: no plans for any trips at this time, but now that all fledglings have just about left the nest :woohoo: I am hopeful that I will be able to plan my first solo trip for next year :cheer2:

    I love this time of year in Disney, last time I went I made sure to arrive on the last night of Osborne lights at HS

    Anyone traveling to the world this Christmas?

    Well, now that the weather is getting colder, I will be going on some one-day ski trips with a bus load of friends. Not exactly solo, I guess. During the summer I go to the beach by myself if no one else is around, and I also frequently go into NYC by myself. Grab my bike and hop on the train.

    And I am going to Disney in five weeks!

    Welcome! *pours a round of margarita's for everyone* I'm your resident bartender, pull up a bar stool, grab a drink, and the welcome committee should be along soon. hehe.

    Honestly, we have major topic ADD so we don't stay on any one topic for more than a page. :rotfl2::rotfl:

    Topic of page 13 is the bartender's excessive amount of drink pour and how good they are [​IMG]

    Since it seems fairly quite over here, perhaps you all would forgive me a little self-indulgent celebration post. Two great things have happened to me this week.

    1) The re-release of my self-published book (now professionally edited) went live on amazon (took over a year to get to this point, but I’m really happy with it now).

    2) My reupholstered couch just came in :cheer2:. My darling dog chewed it up over a year ago when she was still young and teething. I waited a full year to make sure she had all her destructive energies out of her system (and in that year, have been repeatedly embarrassed when having guests over who saw my shambled couch). Finally, I have a pretty couch back and I’m thrilled. (Though my dog not so much. She actually barked at it … don’t know what that means:sad2:).

    Bartender, may I have a celebration shot over here? Perhaps a B-52 if you have it?

    Ahhh, animals and their weird ways! My cat has an only-occasionally habit of licking the bedroom door. :confused3 I've given up trying to figure out why. Congrats on the book - I have so much respect for anyone who can legitimately say they've written a book!

    I'm still holding off on booking my Spring trip, hoping for some discounts or FD to come along. Meanwhile it seems Christmas is racing ever-closer.... wasn't it just Halloween yesterday?? :hourglass

    Been a while since I've had time to post. I'm having internet/network problems at home, work is a freakin' mess, and also dealing with 'complications' on the social front. Nothing I can't deal with, but it's going to be a busy few weeks leading into the holidays.

    Hopefully I'll find some time this weekend to start working on the Christmas tree ... mostly Scooby Doo and and Disney for the ornament theme this year

    Hello folks! Officially no longer single now, got married on 12/1/12 (DH wanted an easy to remember anniversary ;) )! I only have a few minutes to pop in (finals over the next 10 days, yuck!) but thought I'd share a picture or 2 from the big day. I should be able to return after finals are over, and begin planning our June trip to the world :love:
