    Don't feel bad, maroo, I was only gone for 3 days and look what happens!?! :lmao::lmao: Seriously, this is gonna be great!- and so very reminescent of our own trip's inception. :rotfl2: Only we aren't keeping ours a secret! We started our PTR a year and a half before it! Silly gooses, we are.

    I so can't wait to see what you two have cooked up and served. I think that's what I'm looking forward to most- doing whatever I want (mostly) when I want to, and not having to worry about who likes what food, what ride, etc...

    What a lovely proposal. I find myself sitting here thinking, "would you rather have someone propose marriage?" "or going to WDW?" :rotfl: Sadly I can't decide. :lmao:

    I am sure you gals had a fun time and am looking forward to hearing where you stayed and OF COURSE where you ate! popcorn::

    Right on!

    I'm sure her memory is better than mine. :thumbsup2

    She has arrived!

    Heh heh. pirate:

    Don't worry. You'll find a friend like that again, I promise. If it could happen to me, it could happen to anyone.

    I know. Quite frankly, we were borderline indecent.

    Oh, she won't have a choice. I'm way too excited about this report to not finish it.

    No, not silly gooses! I love your PTR! :goodvibes

    :::sigh::: It's so Jack Sparrow. :cloud9:

    To which I say, nothing wrong with that! :rotfl2:

    Should be coming up soon. :thumbsup2

    Ok folks, well before I regale you with some of MY memories of "THE PROPOSAL" and Day 1 (which is technically the day before we left), a couple of things...

    Had I made the phone call instead of TK you'd have understood we were all likely in the same, exact boat that day. So it's all good, my friend. We both figured something came up and both hoped you were all ok.

    Welcome on board. :goodvibes

    Actually, that TR is actually still in progress. Due to personal issues, I was away from the boards for a while and when I came back I couldn't get the old TR properly reactivated (a long and convoluted story I will spare you from). The new link is in my siggie below. Feel free to join on in!

    That would have been an interesting conversation. :rotfl:

    You just know I'm going to be thinking of the two of you as Romy and Michele now don't you?

    Direct and to the point. TK's Disney self summed up in one sentence.

    This is wonderful. I can so relate. I think it gets even harder as we get older too.


    Again, wonderfully straight and to the point! (Lawyers must love you! ;) )

    To distinguish my chapters from my replies to other's comments, look for the Pink Tink Ink!

    After my Sept. trip with Missy, I really had no idea when my next trip to the World would be. At the time, despite some heavy PDD (Post Disney Depression) I was mostly ok with that. I had a TR in the works to at least give me some Disney every day and my personal/work life was out-of-control busy.

    TK, however, had other plans.

    She wined and dined me. (Ok. Technically she dined BF and I and we wined her and her DH over a Christmas visit.)

    She wooed me with pictures of her and her family. WITH HEADS!

    And then, she proposed.

    I mean really, what girl in her right mind would say no to 3 nights in the World with her BFF???

    Of course I accepted. And then needed to "ask" BF. Not so much for permission but to make sure that he wasn't going to be REALLY sad that I might go to the World without him.

    You know, considering my dear BF's passionate love affair with all things Disney.

    ...


    scoff scoff scoff

    BF was ok with it and gave us his blessing. And then promptly changed the channel and proceeded to forget about the trip altoghther.

    What is it with men? Every week for the last 4 weeks before we left he'd ask me when I was going and when I was coming back! Write. It. Down.

    Anywho. We worked out the details and the dates. And as TK said, this isn't a PTR so most of those details will be revealed in due course. But here are a few hints:

    Where we stayed: It was a hotel. On Disney property. With beds.
    What we ate: Copious amounts of food.
    What we did: Visited the House of Mouse.

    Heh, heh, heh. I can be PURE EVIL PIXIE sometimes.

    However, at this point, it seems prudent to clarify our dates:

    5/23/09-5/26/09

    As the trip approached we got more and more giddy. First we were counting down days to when we could make ADRs. Then we were counting down days until the double digits. Then single digits. And, no joke, at some point the number of hours was involved.

    Do you know how hard it was NOT to have a ticker in my siggie?!

    But finally, 5/22/09 arrived. That was MY first day of vacation, despite us not leaving until the next day. TK was working her full day (poor thing). I worked a half day and then raced home to finish up any packing I had left and to run a couple of errands. The plan was for me to stay at TK's the night before as we would be flying together out of her local airport instead of flying out separately.

    And so my journey began.

    But let me say this. What would a Tinkerbellarella Disney TR report be without car trouble?

    :sad2:

    Poor TK, by the time I arrived at her house (which takes about 2 hours from where I am) my hair was probably sticking up all over the place and I looked like I needed a straight jacket.

    Why?

    Well Lola, my pretty little Civic, needs two new tires. And an alignment. And balancing. Badly. But apparently more than I really understood pre-road-trip-to-TK's. You see, the trip route that I allowed my GPS (who's name is Jane, BTW) to choose for me was all highway. Where the speed limit is 65mph.

    Well, guess what Tink found out?
    That her car needs tires, an alignment and balancing so badly that it shakes. A lot. Any time Tink drives over 60mph. And especially downhill.

    Seriously, after 2.5 hours driving 55-58 in the low speed lane, being passed up by every semi in creation carrying God knows what and terrified that my car would spontaneously explode into a million shiny pieces I'd never been so happy to see TK's place.

    I started to decompress when she arrived home from work shortly after I got to her place and we got my luggage inside.

    By the way, it can't be overstated, TK and her family are lovely. They made me tacos. Her DS calls me Auntie Tink. Her DH teases me as if I was one of the family.

    After dinner and finding two little sparrows performing "adult activities" on her porch (NO JOKE, after the initial shock and awe we were hysterical), I talked to BF for a bit, to let him know I'd arrived safely, if not panic-stricken and anxiety ridden and then bid him adieu and good night. I missed him already.

    TK's DS headed off to beddy-bye with his daddy in tow and storybook in hand (collective "AWWWWW") and TK and I settled onto the couch to get in some great girly-chat and to paint our toes.

    Seriously? We know how to do a sleepover.

    I remember looking at the clock at 9:00 thinking, 'We should hit the hay soon if we have to be up at 6:00.'

    I thought the same thing at 9:30.

    10:00.

    Finally, at 11:30 we conceded that if we didn't go to sleep, the next day could be disastrous.

    But it was hard. As TK so eloquently and sweetly described above, we have a real bond. I am Luke, she's Leia. I'm Romy, she's Michelle. And I definitely think I'm Shirley, TK, and you're Laverne.

    I, ironically, used to have gerbils named Laverne and Shirley.

    Moving on.

    We talked about so much, in that way that is soul-touching, heart-warming and deep. We are so much alike and yet our differences offer just enough perspective and objectivity that it's nothing if not beneficial. I certainly won't share here everything we discussed. It's far too personal and private. However I WILL tell you we both painted our toes a sassy red.

    The Force was with...our feet.

    :yoda:

    We retired, sleepy and excited, ready to wake up the next morning and head to the World.

    And if you like to drink pink ink, then you should get a nink, I think...


    Oops....wrong story. Sorry! For some reason I just feel so Seusserrific around you....:flower3:




    Doesn't she always?!.....



    :confused3



    *snort*laugh*.....:rotfl:



    Hmm, not so sure about that. Sneaky?....heck yeah!! But evil?...not so much. Devils don't wear tiaras, kwim?! ;)




    Dude. Would it be a countdown if they were not?! Just sayin'....




    Well that explains a lot! For some reason eating at Casey's comes to mind...

    :lmao:




    WATCH OUT, people!!.....TK and Tink are armed and about to take on the World!:thumbsup2

    I thought you might like those. I saw that comment about wanting some, but I couldn't remember if it was on this thread or your other one. I think it was the other one.

    No, what was indecent was the little public display put on by those sparrows on your deck.

    This sounds weird, yes, but in real life it's not as weird as it sounds.

    Something different?

    Awwwww. Ditto, my friend. :hug:

    CHA-CHING!

    You know what that sound is? More being added to TK's Debt to Be Repaid. ;)

    This made me snortlaugh.

    Dude. So EXACTLY what you said, too.

    You're Seusstastic.

    Oh good LORD we were bad that night! Must've been something in the...well, something we'd had earlier in the day. Don't want to give too much away.

    I now have Bonnie Tyler's "I Need A Hero" stuck in my head. LOL

    It was the other one but seriously, m'dear, that's SO awesome.

    Technically that question has three answers: No, Yes and Almost.

    All in due time, my friend, all in due time.

    Hmmm, now we all know the way to Tink's Disney heart.
    That would do it! :lmao:

    One that would need to have her pineapple revoked that's who. I'm so glad you didn't force us to have to do that.

    Are you begining to run a debt tally to be repaid too?

    All signs of a quality vacation. I keep trying to guess where by TK's first picture. The bright yellow is throwing me. I'm going to have to guess POP, with CB as my backup.

    Hopefully you didn't rub this in too badly.


    :confused3

    Isn't this the BF's job to make sure you don't hit the road with a messed up car? Seriously I thought that's one of the reasons we keep men around. (Not a very important one, but one of them).

    Auntie Tink, I love it!


    It's good to know that we don't lose such important knowledge as we grow up. :)

    Noooo, no Laverne and Shirley. I always keep thinking of how they hated each other in real life.



    Now I'll just sit patiently and wait for more. popcorn::

    Just a warning.

    This is going to be one heck of a multi-quote. :lmao:

    I so love that movie.

    Although I can be rather verbose and confusing, much like the good captain, every now and then, I come out with a concise nugget like that.

    It's funny you mention that. I've had several people tell me I missed my true calling, in the field of law. Funny thing is, it's one of the careers my Granddad considered. Another funny thing is we're both very good actors.

    Coincidence?

    :scratchin

    :lmao:

    Where you live? ;)

    And what would a TK TR be without someone getting sick?

    Actually, you looked quite lovely, but very, very stressed. I felt badly.

    Aw, shuckles. We think you're alright, too. :blush:

    Part of me is surprised you mention the sparrow action...heh heh...and part of me is hysterical. It's too bad you didn't have a camera trained on my face when I figured out what they were doing. :lmao:

    First of all, I am horrible at sleeping on Disney Vacation Eve. Throw a girlfriend into the mix? OMG, I don't remember the last time...wait, that's a lie. The last time I had a sleepover with friends was my bachelorette party.

    :::ahem:::

    On June 22, we'll have been married for seven years.

    :::ahem:::

    DANCING PINEAPPLES!!!!!!!!!!

    Way to bring it!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey! I resemble that remark. ;)

    That so should have been the trip report title. :rotfl2:

    I don't know why you would ever say such a thing. :flower3:


    Actually, there is, but it's not with who you may think. ;)

    Indeed.

    SOMETHING NEW!!!! I swear, I learned it from him. :lmao:

    It is vast. Given that I'd really like to stay deluxe in 2010, it'll be even worse. :rotfl2:


    I wondered if anyone would be able to tell from the color.

    DS asks for his Auntie Tink on a regular basis. Matter of fact, yesterday, it was more of a whiny...."I..wa-ant...Auntie Ti-ink." :goodvibes


    Short answer: no.

    Long answer: :welcome: to the DIS! ;)

    Done - we'll make it happen for sure! :thumbsup2:hug:

    So very, very true! :goodvibes

    This cracked me up! :rotfl2: Because I can count on one hand the number of times my very dearest DIS friends and I have talked on the phone... but I just deleted 2000+ setn emails to those same people!

    :hug: I felt really bad about it, so thanks for understanding!

    Yup. I swore I wouldn't post another. Look down.

    D'OH! :rolleyes:

    NOOO! Again?! :headache:

    SHUT - UP?!?!?!
    That there garners a few dancing bananamen AND a creepy dancing guy! I'm so saving that for future use - thank you!!!

    When are you going again? ;)

    Tink and I are the same way. And a few other DISers I can think of! It's funny, e-mail is just such an easy way to communicate.

    Good lord woman! What do you want from me? :lmao:

    I promise, the next installment is coming soon.
