    it's so weird reading about your comings and goings, criss-crossig, and having NO idea what you are talking about. Iknow we will feel like fish out of water at DL and CA. not know our way around?:faint:

    it's funny how easy it is to get distracted...squirrel!... you go for FP for WOc, then totally forget! I guess that beer was calling your name!!


    merry Christmas, by the way!!!! sorry you have to work on Christmas eve. we did the family thing today.. tomorrow I work.

    I think you'll be fine. The lay out of DL is pretty close to that of MK. DCA isn't too bad either.

    It was and it wasn't even noon yet. I don't think.

    Work wasnt' bad. Being the only one there, I had time to post a new chapter obviously. Helped make my time fly by. So sorry you have to work tomorrow. We're both off tomorrow, so we're doing our family things tomorrow.

    Merry Christmas to you and Nebo as well.

    Had to come over here too (even though I'm embarrassed to say that I'm way, waaaaay behind) to say...


    Merry Christmas Mike and Heather!!!

    OH, by the way...

    When I clicked over here, I saw the picture of Mrs. T with short hair...
    I'm partial to longer hair, but, dang... Mrs. T, you're hot!

    It's a compliment T-Man, no need to come marching up here and beat me up.

    Thank you. I'm typing on my phone and can't get to the smilies but if I could I would have a huge blushing smiley right here. I appreciate that compliment though. I now know why T-Man left...he's probably half way to canada by now haha.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family Ponzi.

    We decide since we still have to finish our beer, to just get a FP for it and start scoping the area for something to eat. Either the heat, beer or combination of both has me feeling a little light headed. We went inside Taste of Pilot’s Grill.

    Pontius Pilot has his own restaurant? What, does DCA stand for Disney's Calvary Adventure?

    Oh there they are. This distortion was distracting and really ruined the ride for us. Needless to say, this was the only time we would ride Soarin’.

    I think teh version at Epcot is ALSO losing it's clarity, A LOT, I won't wait for it anymore if it's not just about a walk on.



    Thanks again everyone for sticking it out with us in this long, drawn out TR.[/QUOTE]

    Yeah, thanks Mike,,,, and,, hmm, I just noticed that half my post is missing. grr.

    Just got caught up. Christmas and everything had me running around like crazy. Love your updates.
    I hate when you forget something like FPs or march around DCA only to find rides closed. There's not really a hub, so you feel like you have to walk for an eternity if you ever want to go back. It was even worse when they were doing construction, because they had you file through a maze to get most places.

    I felt the other way about Soarin'. Since it highlights CA when you are in CA, we hoped the FL one would highlight FL, or maybe the whole US of A, like the old "America the Beautiful" 360. No such luck.:sad2:

    see how he is? to me, I consider this a "thrill " ride, one I actually will go on. (nebo says it borders between relaxing and boring). so, I find a ride that's kinda scary to me, but I'll, do it, and I like it...so.. he won't wait for it anymore.!!!

    harrumph...!!!maybe I won't wait for TOT or arrowsmith anymore, since I don't go on it anyway;) sigh, he should have married a thrill junkie. or at least one that will "bite the bullet", all the while saying "dumb wife, dumb wife":rotfl:

    Ok, ok. I mentioned it at the beginning. You were close. Here's the real meaning.
    Disney's
    California
    Adventure

    You know we got a FP for this ride. The day we drank around the world. We never did use them. I think we're starting to feel the same way about this ride.

    I thought you were just trying to keep it short and simple. :laughing:
    Now get back to work, inquiring minds want to know what else you wrote. And if they don't, well at least I do.

    Thank you. I know what you mean. Given our recent trip to WDW and Christmas, I'm lucky I found time to post. Thankfully I'm the lone worker at work. So gives me a chance to work on the chapters.

    Our pub hub became the Alfresco Lounge. To us, it's kinda the central point of the park and you can get to most places pretty easily from there.

    If you look at DCA on Google Maps, they still have pictures of all the construction and the mouse maze. I can only imagine what it was like during that time. I'm glad we got to see the finished product.

    Well my thought process on this is this; those that live in or around CA get to see everyday (in real life) what they show on the movie. What they don't get to see everyday is the East Coast or FL. So lets bring the East Coast to the West Coast and vice-versa.

    This is my opinion; for Epcot, it would be a thrill ride. Throw this in a park like Islands of Adventure, then it would teeter-totter between a moderate to non-thrill ride. Who knows what kind of attention it would get. So Disney was smart to put it at Epcot. It used to be a must for us, but I agree with the Nebo. The quality of the video is starting to make this ride a if we do it fine, but no longer a must. Of course, you got to know me a little more now. You know I'm a thrill seeker junkie.

    Oh oh Nebo. You disturbed she who must not be disturbed.:scared1: Sorry buddy, you're on your own here. I'll comment more about this on your TR, when you get to that point.

    tee hee, I must admit, if there is any ride we have ridden a gazillion times, it would be big thunder mt., cause to me, it's a thrill ride. and nebo puts up with it. (but it is fun for him, too)

    at cedar point, though, here's poor Nebo "do we HAVE to ride the Mine ride AGAIN!?" :lmao:

    Wow...Talk about losing track of things. Between finally getting my barrings after the trip, and then the holidays coming around and smacking me upside the head immediately afterwards, I haven't had a chance to catch up on our own TR, let alone anyone elses. I know MonyMony finished hers and yet I'm still a chapter or two behind there (Forgive me! :blush:) and I while T-Man has given me info on Nebo's, I haven't had a chance to walk my happy GM over there to check it out and catch up.

    Threw out my back on Tuesday, Merry Christmas to me. Was laid up on Wednesday, because I could barely move. Came to work yesterday and went immediately to the Chirporactor who did wonders. And today is another short work day because I am going for a massage in hopes that I will be better by New Years Eve. Lets all hope for the best!!!! So...Because of that, I have been slacking. I'll try to catch up a bit.


    Oh get over it! HAHA…Just kidding. It could have been a lot worse. The good news is my hair grows fast…Bad news…I keep going back for trims.

    My hair grows fast. I usually have to go back every 6 weeks or so to get it re-colored and trimmed because it’s already growing out.

    And Thank you! This was quite drastic as I did cut about 13 inches off. But it was getting really heavy and all I was doing was putting it into ponytails and braids.

    It’s funny that you mention looking up your DS and DDIL. We almost had to go look up our info too. We knew the general area we were at, but couldn’t remember the exact place, and of course we forgot the information back home. So we searched and searched until finally T-Man had a light bulb go off and started looking at the old pictures we had taken to determine where we were.

    Thanks! You have no idea how much easier this is. I’m not going through shampoo and conditioner like it’s going out of style either!

    :lmao:


    I know I already said it on Facebook and I’m super late with it here…but I do hope you and all our wonderful friends here on the DIS had a wonderful and merry Christmas and my only wish is that you all have a safe and happy New Year. Here is to happiness, laughter, and love for 2013! [​IMG]

    Yup. You pray instead of prattle.

    Smidgy, correct me if I’m wrong but you already are a thrill junkie…I mean you married the man…TWICE. Aren’t you already “biting the bullet” and saying ”dumb wife, dumb wife”? [​IMG]

    Sorry, Nebo…That one was given to me on a silver platter. I had to take it. Still love ya!

    I think I am with you on Soarin’…Heck, even if they had it switched like T-Man mentioned. Do CA in FL and FL in CA…but nooooo…I like your idea of it highlighting the USA as a whole. That would be neat. Maybe we need to start a petition to Disney!


    Great update honey! I really don’t have anything to add. Carsland was awesome. You really did get transported to another place and time. I find myself really soaking up the different themes they have at these parks, so when reality hits after we leave I have to sort of stop and center myself. I think that’s why I love Disney so much. It really gives you that sense of being in another world. CL for sure did that for me. When we walked out towards the other area of the park, for a while you are still walking along RT 66. The paved road is still under your feet, you can see the center divider line, and the rocks off to the side of the road, and then all of a sudden your no longer there…It takes you a minute to figure out where you are and when you missed that transition.

    ToT was fun as always. I loved the CM. I wish all CM’s for this ride would be this into it. I personally think that’s half the fun. You have to wonder what that guy is like outside of the park.

    It was a little depressing that all the rides around Paradise Pier were closed at the time. I think it had to be due to the heat. It was extremely hot there that day and I’m sure it wouldn’t have been safe.

    OK. Off to see if I can catch up everywhere else, Plus I need to remember what we did at SeaWorld for my next part of the TR…This will be fun… [​IMG]

    Well you better catch up quick. It's almost your turn again.

    At least you're only a chapter. I'm so far behind, I think I'm ahead.

    You didn't miss much. Nebo isn't hurt, yet.

    I'll be hoping for the best to. :thumbsup2 After all, we need to celebrate.


    You can't make me. [​IMG]

    You know you don't really have to go back. Can just let it grow out again. :rolleyes1 Save you time and money.

    Now I have nothing to grab...... Oh right, family board. Disregard that last statement.

    Good thing I posted the pics online or else we would've lost our minds finding ourselves.

    That makes 2 of us.

    I don't do FB. But then you knew that already.

    Here, here.[​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Something going on here I don't know about? [​IMG]

    Man, I can't trust Ponzi or Nebo anymore, can I.


    Dear Disney. Please change Soarin to cover the whole USA.

    Now all we need are signatures.

    Thank you.

    For not having anything to add, you sure did say a lot. :duck:

    I didn't take notes, did you? I remember what we did. Just don't remember the order we did them in. :laughing: Good thing we took lots of pictures. Hopefully we can figure it out that way.

    Let's try to finish this day up, shall we?

    After sending Ponzi his postcard, we ventured back out into the heat. We actually forgot how hot it was outside, after being in a cool GC. We&#8217;re more hungry now and the beer has us feeling pretty good. We passed &#8220;Award Weiners&#8221; this morning after we got off of ToT and on our way to get a locker.

    Here&#8217;s a picture I took of it at night since I forgot to take one during the day.
    [​IMG]


    We didn&#8217;t want a big meal. We had plans on eating at either PF Chang&#8217;s or California Pizza Kitchen for dinner at GardenWalk. Which is were we originally had plans to eat for lunch as well. There&#8217;s a place at GW called &#8220;Bar Louie Tavern & Grill.&#8221; Every Tuesday they sell $1 burgers with the purchase of a cocktail. Since today was Tuesday, we wanted to go. Again, the beer and heat were probably already getting to us, so we totally spaced it out. We settled instead for AW.

    We both got a chili dog, chips and coke.
    [​IMG]

    The chili dog was actually pretty good and not too expensive if I recall correctly. At least not for Disney counter service.

    After chowing down, we wanted to give Muppets 3D a try since it was right next door to AW. We wanted to see how it compared to WDW&#8217;s version. We were denied access. Not because the ride was down, but because we hadn&#8217;t downed our sodas yet. So we go to see what else is in the area while we finish our soda&#8217;s.

    There&#8217;s the Mad-Hatter&#8217;s Tea Party. Nothing going on here. It&#8217;s as dead as doornail. Although I don&#8217;t know if you can consider a door-nail dead.
    [​IMG]

    There&#8217;s Monster&#8217;s Inc. Oh it&#8217;s also closed. I think. There&#8217;s a rope across the entrance area. There was CM standing there so we asked her if it was closed. She said &#8220;no, it&#8217;s open. They&#8217;re remodeling the entrance area, so you have to go in this way instead.&#8221; Nice. Only a 5 minute wait. Let&#8217;s see what this ride is about. Another ride similar to Pooh and Wild Toad.

    Finally figured out a few action settings on my camera, so I was able to get better pictures.

    TAXI!
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Rozz was happy she put her best sweater on, and makeup, for pictures.
    [​IMG]

    After Monster&#8217;s Inc, we wanted to see Aladdin since it was close by. We just missed the 1:20 show and the next show wasn&#8217;t until 3:20. We&#8217;ll come back then and catch that show. Now that we ate and we&#8217;re not feeling as whoozy from the beer, naturally it&#8217;s time to get another beer.

    We make our way back towards our new favorite place. As we get close, we see they have already roped off sections for the Pixar Parade. We make our way to our favorite watering hole. We can&#8217;t cross over because the parade has just started. Want to watch a parade? Of course you do. So did we. What other choice did we have. Well we did have choices, but we figured our hang out is just right there. We can wait a little longer and see the show.

    [​IMG]

    How did Rozz change and get here so fast?
    [​IMG]

    See the umbrellas on top of the wall? That's our new pub hub. So close yet so far.

    After the parade, we cross over and get our beer. We find a shady spot to sit and study the map. It&#8217;s about 2:30 and my weather app says it&#8217;s now 98 degrees outside. Feels like 110. &#8220;Umm honey. I thought this was Disneyland. When did we land up in Las Vegas?&#8221; While sitting there, neither one of us can think of what to do next. Cal Screamin&#8217; is still not open. Don&#8217;t know if TSM is yet or not, and it&#8217;s too flipping hot to do anything, except.

    No we still didn&#8217;t go do GRR. Instead while sitting there slamming down a beer (because the beer is already getting hot) we decided to just head back to the resort for a while and go swimming. We still have one more day left on our passes, we can catch Aladdin another time. On our way out we make a pit stop at the locker. We need one of our bags to bring back some provisions for the evening. We empty one bag with everything but Lady H&#8217;s tennis shoes. She wants to change into them for the evening.

    We head over to our shuttle area and wait.

    And wait.

    Still waiting.

    Is it ever going to come? We saw shuttles for all the other routes except for ours.

    Finally. After waiting for about 40 minutes, one finally shows up. I thought this thing was supposed to come by every 20 minutes? Turns out they were doing shift changes. Yes, I&#8217;m psychic, I can tell when they are doing these things. Don&#8217;t believe me? The fact that we had a different shuttle driver than the one that pulled up has nothing to do with it. Believe in my psychic abilities.

    Once aboard the bus, we sit there waiting for the 2 drivers to complete the shift change. And wait and yes, we&#8217;re going through this routine again. At least they let us sit on the bus, in the air conditioning while they do the change over. Finally after another 30 minutes, we get rolling. Could&#8217;ve probably caught Aladdin as long as we waited. Plus this significantly cut into our pool time and even more so, our dinner plans. Now we have to decide; if we want to swim for a couple of hours we can, but we&#8217;ll have to skip out on dinner over at GW. We can just come back to the park to eat. If we still want to eat at GW, then we can only get in an hour of swimming time, head over to GW, hope they&#8217;re quick and get back to the park before 7:30pm. Why do we have to make this decision? So we can get a good spot for viewing WoC. They allow people with FP&#8217;s to start lining up an hour and a half before show time. It&#8217;s just like Fantasmic and viewing Wishes. If you want the prime real estate, you have to be like our ancestors and stake your claim.

    We decide it would be a little difficult to try and make it to GW to have dinner. We&#8217;ll go with a couple of hours of pool time, get ready and head back to the parks and eat there.

    I&#8217;m pretty sure I mentioned it, but in case I haven&#8217;t; for us to get to the shuttle stop, we have to pass by Denny&#8217;s. We peak inside the windows and notice Denny&#8217;s is practically empty. There&#8217;s plenty of empty tables. This could be an option, but first we need to cross the street to the liquor store. Nebo is probably disappointed already that there is a liquor store across the street, and we haven&#8217;t picked up any park bottles yet. Now&#8217;s a good time. Plus that&#8217;s the reason we brought one of our bags back with us.

    We cross the street and get some park bottles, then run back across the street, make a mad dash upstairs, change into our swim suits and head straight towards the pool. Even the water wasn&#8217;t that cold, but it was cool enough to beat the heat. Well for a little while. Here&#8217;s the irony of the situation. After we get in the pool, we jump in the hot tub. Not before grabbing a beer. Our room was close enough to the pool we could go back and forth. Now for me, the hot tub was a little too hot. Sure it felt good on my aching muscles and sore feet from all the walking. I was going back and forth between the pool and the hot tub, but spent more time in the pool. Lady H on the other hand, will take the hot tub over the pool any day.

    Soon it was time to get out and start getting ready to head back to the parks. Take a shower to wash all the bleach (aka chlorine) off and wait for Lady H to do her hair and make-up. All us men know the routine by now. Might as well grab another beer while I wait.

    On our way to the shuttle, we take a peak inside Denny&#8217;s again. Not busy at all. There are only 2 tables being occupied. We should be able to be in and out in no time. Looks like it&#8217;s Denny&#8217;s for dinner. I had the chicken fried steak and eggs while Lady H I believe had a grilled cheese sandwich. What was interesting about her grilled cheese sandwich is that it was made with Fried Mozzarella Sticks, served with a side of marinara sauce and french fries. Neither one of us has had anything like that before, but she said it was actually pretty good.

    Lady H's Grill Cheese Sandwich
    [​IMG]

    Dinner was pretty quick. I think we were in and out in about 45 minutes. We even had some time to spare and would make it back to the park in no time. Take it we didn&#8217;t have to wait long for the shuttle. Which I hope comes soon. It&#8217;s starting to rain. Oh look, here it comes now. Perfect timing. Just as we boarded the shuttle, there was a brief down pour. Great. Now it&#8217;s humid along with being hot still. Not as hot as it was 4 hours ago, it was finally starting to cool down. As we got back to DCA, we needed to go through security again. The line to get through security was long. They had closed up one side and only had about 4 guards checking bags on the other side. This is the time when you wish they had a no bag line. I still think this is one of DLR's main down falls.

    It would take us about 15 minutes to get through security. I didn&#8217;t have a bag. My bag was still in the locker. I had the park bottles in my cargo shorts. When it came time for us to go through, I just walked on by. Lady H had to get her bag checked. It&#8217;s an easy bag to check though. We took along our drawstring type bags, so there&#8217;s only one big pocket to check. All she had in there were Simply Raspberry Lemonades.

    These are our equivalents to Nebo & Smidgy&#8217;s Sunny D&#8217;s.
    [​IMG]

    After we get through security, we head to the restrooms. We haven&#8217;t worked up enough courage to prepare our mixes in open public. Smirnoff for Lady and Jose Cuervo for me.
    You can tell everyone is headed to DCA for WoC. The lines to get in are long. Now comes the true test, will they let us back in. We no longer have the branding on our hands. They washed off in the pool and the shower. Plus, before we left, we asked them if there would be any problem getting back in as we were headed back to go swimming. The CM told us we shouldn&#8217;t. I go to scan my ticket and the CM monitoring the gate starts to look for the branding. I explained to her that we advised the CM&#8217;s of our intentions to go swimming. No problem she said, have a good night.

    Wow, that was easy. No slaps on the hand this time for not being branded. I wish the last CM was like that.

    We make a pit stop at the locker again. Told Lady H since we&#8217;re here to see WoC and not do anything else, might as well pick up my bag right away. We won&#8217;t need to the locker anymore and I need the video camera. After grabbing my bag, we make our way down Buena Vista St. with our simply lemonades. It&#8217;s starting to sprinkle again. No major down pour, but it did provide for us a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Carsland.

    [​IMG]

    Soon we made our way to the WoC Showcase Lagoon. People with FP's were already lining up. Our FP section was Blue, which means our line and section is to the left of the Lagoon. If you got Yellow, you line up in a separate line to the far right and your section is to the right. We got in line and were somewhat close to the front, but there was still a decent amount of people ahead of us. Now like during rope drop, you line up behind a rope. Well so I&#8217;ve been told. We still haven&#8217;t made it to a rope drop yet. Once they let the people in, a CM walks you down the ramp to the main entrance. There are 2 lines here. The one to the left will put you in the very front. This is the lane that you will also get you wet. The lane to the right leads you to the second row, or the non-splash zone. We choose the splash zone. We hurry down the ramp, and try to find a spot. Being the rookies we are, we miss out on the good spots in the middle. We find a spot upfront but it isn&#8217;t offering the best view. I look at the yellow section and see some good spots there. I take off to ask the CM if we&#8217;re allowed to stand in this section even though our FP was for the Blue section. She said sure. I give Lady H the all clear signal and we take a better spot in the Yellow section. We&#8217;ll be able to really see the show from here. Still got a good hour wait before the show starts. Lets see what kind of pictures I can get while waiting.

    Should I complain to DL that they ruined my picture by having a burnt out section on Mickey&#8217;s Fun Wheel? Ha Ha

    Soon the lights went out and it&#8217;s time for World of Color to start.

    Gonna start catching up now...

    Forgotten what?

    Oh, you poor thing! Being forced to go to Hawaii. Really, I feel terrible for you.

    Really.

    <GASP!!!> It's! It's! It's! ZEBRA DOMES!!!!!!

    mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm................. zzzzzzzzzzzzzeeeeeeeeeeeeebbbbbbbrrrraaaaaa ddddddoooooommmmmmeeeesssssssssssssss.......... mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm............


    :faint:

    Well, people like doing that, so...

    I've only been to AKL once and didn't have any problem... then again, we had an ADR at Boma... which Ruby hated, BTW.

    Okay, I'll give you that one. I wouldn't make a special trip to AKL just for them. Well, if I was in AK I probably would, cause it's not that far. Actually, the All Stars resorts would be okay, too. Come to think of it, CSR and Blizzard Beach are close enough too. So if I was at any of those places... or DHS... I would make the trip. Oh, add in any of the Epcot Resorts and Epcot too. Aw, heck might as well say I'd travel from anywhere in WDW excluding DTD... which I might as well include, too. Plus Kissimee... and Orlando... How about if I'm anywhere south of the Mason-Dixon line, there's a good chance I'll make a side trip?

    But other than that? Probably not. So I'm just like you.

    Perhaps I might be of assistance here... Nebo might be referring to an obscure TR, here's the link: http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=46177741&postcount=255

    and here's the visual:

    So you're saying that my posts don't just put people to sleep but knock them out? Hmpf!

    :snooty:

    Cool! So do you know the choreography to MJ's Thriller?

    I like you the best. Let's run off to Boma together.

    Only on a Disney vacation can you call 7:30 'sleeping in'.

    Is that when cosmic shrinkage will occur?

    (I was in the pool!!!)

    Thank you, but I'm hardly ever civil, so doesn't apply to me.

    Watch enough MASH and that happens too.

    ... then you have to wait for the shuttle short.

    Now you tell me!

    Run? Run?

    I was so sure you hopped.

    Ah, well...

    All that park energy... wasted!

    Wasted?

    Oh, wait... the drinking around the world isn't until the next trip.

    When I was younger, I perspired to be a fireman... I thought I could do it, no sweat.

    Because if you didn't have deodorant on, you'd have to hang your head in shame.

    And he made it really big so we'd all get exercise... then put all kinds of wonderful snacks within arms reach every few feet.

    I had an Uncle who lived in the western part of Germany. His brother lived in Berlin, on the wrong side of the Berlin Wall. I remember my folks telling me how they and my Uncle went to visit his brother and had to go through check-point Charlie. My poor Uncle was apparently extremely nervous the whole time he was there. I guess he thought there was a possibility that he might not be allowed to leave again.

    Whether you're a rich business tycoon or a poor bag lady (or man) you have to wait in line, huh?

    And if you're in line behind a bag person, it takes forever, 'cause they always have all their possessions in a shopping cart where one wheel always shimmies back and forth whenever you push it.

    Who's the ol' bag you've got with you guys? Did Mrs T get to ride in her cart?

    Yes it is...

    and don't call me Shirley.

    um.... Holy PRAC! :scared1:

    And considering you waited for 45 minutes, looks like your plan probably paid off.

    Who knew Elvis stood in line at Disney? :confused3

    No. She didn't. I wasn't in jail, just busy.


    Oh! That kind of fan...

    Nevermind.

    Nice pic of Heather, though.

    The one you didn't put in a locker?

    Too bad. I was enjoying your pics and was hoping for some shots while you were riding... or wouldn't that have been possible?

    He'll just have to learn to live with DISappointment.

    It's okay, Mike! Really! No problem.
    Oh, and sorry for anything I might have said now or in the future that might tick you off.

    sorry.

    (I think I'm in the clear!)

    Well that and you'll be dead of old age before the line moves enough for you to ride it again.

    Thanks for all the ride details. Pretty cool that you have two cars racing side by side, sounds like a blast.

    I still prefer to sashay.

    I guess that's great if you happen to want a snack that nobody else wants. The people at the ice cream cone are overwhelmed while the folks over at the raw chicken in a cup cone are bored out of their collective minds.

    See?

    Great chapter, T-man. Thanks! :goodvibes

    So now I'm only two chapters behind... <sigh>

    :sad1: And here I thought you were my friend. Oh, the humanity!

    That's right, it's not the quantity, it's the quality.

    Oh, wait. We're talking about Nebo, here right?

    Just forget I said anything.

    Dun-du-dun-dun-dunnnnnnnnnn!!!

    I'm so happy for you that you like your GM.

    Already commented on the pic... But that line reminds me of a scene they've done a few times on The Big Bang Theory:

    Sheldon will mention that if they invent time travel, they will come back to now and tell their current selves... then they pause and look expectantly at the door.

    :lmao: yes, I sometimes can be found in the corner, in a fetalposition, mumbling that phrase. but it's kinda like that phrase I posted on facebook a while back. something about wanting to kill your spouse so bad.. but you don't.. cause you would miss him too much!:rotfl:
