    ::yes::
    And I wore it last night
    and this morning
    when I was shoveling. :)


    Of course.
    Otherwise...
    there's no excuse.


    :laughing:

    :sad2:

    I've seen it once...
    maybe twice before.

    And it's awesome.


    Yes... and yes!


    I was pretty bummed.
    Still am, actually.

    I'm way behind, but I meant to comment on the Corning Museum! I actually went there when I was a teenager, with my family! We actually stopped there on a road trip that included putting my sister on an airplane in New York (to go to Israel for a summer program), but on the way back after we dropped her off. She was a bit peeved when she realized she had missed something that cool! (But, y'know, the rest of us didn't go on a big overseas adventure...)

    I have to say, curator at a glass museum does sound like a fun job.

    But you're here now!
    Hi, Irene! :wave:


    Really!
    That makes two of us. :)
    Great, wasn't it?


    :lmao:
    I was forced to go
    to an entirely new
    country on an entirely
    new continent...


    But you guys got to
    go to the Corning Museum!



    Actually... You're sister's right.
    I loved that museum.


    And I'm sure she's a
    smashing success at it!
    Not to say that it's always
    all that it's cracked up to be.
    But them's the breaks.

    I was wondering
    how you'd react to that.

    Just kidding! :laughing:


    I should take a photo and post it.
    It's an interesting piece.

    Playing catch up today! I think I'm going to do a separate post for each one of yours I missed otherwise I will forget everything I wanted to say!

    Been there many times myself although it's been a long time since the last visit. When I lived in Erie, PA it was a pretty short drive.

    Huh. Never knew that about you. :confused3 :rotfl:



    Doesn't seem very peaceful with all the buildings in the background.

    Wow, just wow!

    Very nice!

    :sad1:

    Sounds like an amazing experience all around!

    Yep. I can't imagine the size of the booster seat he needed to see out that windshield :rotfl2:

    Okay! Good luck!

    That would be. :)

    So... since it's been a while...
    There's water?
    And it's in a river?
    And it goes over a drop?

    That's it.


    :sad2:

    It was a distraction.
    Not gonna lie.
    But facing the other way
    was nice.

    Or would have been
    if it had been raked.


    ::yes::

    I was very surprised at
    the amount of detail.


    Not too shabby!
    Not too cheap, either.



    I wondered if it was either
    just too much material
    and not enough time, or...

    Disney copywrite issues.


    ::yes::
    It really was!

    :laughing:

    And for whatever reason,
    I can't quote the video.
    :laughing:
    I like his perfect swan dive.

    I've met quite a few DISer to date and all the meets have been great! But I also worry about them and how it will go.

    Funny thing is, my husband had no issues with me meeting up with you and @docsoliday1 but my Mother in Law threw a fit when she found out. :rotfl2:

    Ha! We have one of those baking dishes. Jim just used it last week to make meatloaf in.

    One DISer I definitely want to meet someday. I'm so sad she isn't going to make it for the May trip.

    Again, just Wow!

    I totally see it!

    :rotfl:Silly Marvin

    I've watched one of these on Main Street. I see Marvin enjoyed the demonstration too.

    Another DISer I would love to meet someday.

    Perfection! :lmao:

    Yep!

    I've had great meets.
    You were one of them! :)


    All I could think there was...
    "I wanna meet your mom."


    :lmao:

    Everyone has those! :laughing:

    I know. I was sad for her
    when I heard.
    Had hoped to see her down there.

    Next time! :)


    Right?????

    Totally stole that!

    :rolleyes:

    He's a fan.

    Mark (and family!)
    is great. :)


    :laughing:
    He really did make
    it happen!


    ;)

    That's just all kind of awesome.

    :rolleyes2

    Yikes! I kind of thought this was going there. :rotfl2: When Jim first flew down to Atlanta for the job interview that brought us here, he booked a hotel near the interview location. Being from a small town (Erie) he didn't even think of the fact that there may be more than one hotel with the same name in Atlanta. He ended up at the wrong one and weird thing is, they found his reservation and gave him a room even though it was the wrong location. :confused3

    Nice karma there!


    Ah man, that's just too bad.

    Yep, I saw Marvin snooping on all those Coffee Crisps.

    ::yes:: I love it! :goodvibes

    :laughing:
    So his mistake was... not!
    Was it the same chain?
    Or did he have to call the other
    hotel and cancel?


    ::yes::

    Still bummed about it. :(

    Interplanetary travel makes
    him hungry.

    Soooo...
    Been a long year so far.
    I’ve had only one day off
    since December 28.
    I had to pick up a few things
    at Costco and decided to grab a package of meatballs.

    Microwave instructions
    are pretty basic.
    Cut slit in plastic and nuke.

    But the other heating directions...

    Fancy that... Mine too!

    Uhm.... does that sentence end any other way than "Cheesy Poofs"!

    Did you watch the glass blowing when you went to Cedar Point? Back in the Frontier Trail. There is even the opportunity to do it yourself...
    https://www.cedarpoint.com/play/unique-experiences


    Where?
    At the gas station.
    How?
    Very carefully!
    Did you trip over something?
    Sure did. It was my pride!

    Short story. Pumping gas. Did you know that gas pump hoses can grow arms? They reached out and grabbed my foot when I went to step over it to put my drink in the car. Then they laughed! True story!


    Yes and yes.
    Being in a big hospital is very intimidating, BUT rewarding! All of my other class mates keep talking about the small hospitals they are in and how they send out many of the specimens they get to a larger facility. My response is "Yes, I know... I got them today and worked them up!" So basically, I am seeing MUCH more than what my classmates are seeing because I chose a large hospital with a drive versus staying close to home in a small hospital.
    It was my second choice for placement. My first, the school couldn't get affiliated with (they weren't already) before my clinicals started, so they went with my second choice.

    Should I get my long-awaited Orphan Annie Secret Society decoder pin?

    YES?


    My daughters favorite!

    Me too! Although I do not agree, my above mentioned daughter does! (edit to clarify: I do not agree about the yummyness of the candy, not the coolness of the picture! It is way cool!)

    nope!

    Not a hydroplane...but I did this once...


    I used to work at Blockbuster way back when. The funnest was when you had "so and so" who would drop "local video store" XXX rated movies in our drop box and I had to call "local video store" and give them the name of the video that was returned to us. It was so awful! I imagine it was even worse for the other worker to have to call the customer to tell them they dropped their XXX film at the wrong store.

    Hey! I have one of those lists too. IT IS SOOOOOOOOO LONG!

    That's funny. I guess I can understand why it's a bit more concern for a woman, but that's also why we met at a very public place. Also, I think getting to know each other through TRs and such before hand helps (I hope) with any reservations/nervousness.

    I always worry once you see what I look like, you'll run away screaming. :rotfl2:

    Did the packaging actually say that or are your Photoshop skills being exhibited again? If the former, then someone has a sense of humor.

    If the latter, then it should have made mention of the space modulator.

    They all did.
    It was a legal requirement.


    :lmao:

    NO!!!!!

    Crap. Had no idea.
    Then again... if I'd known,
    I'd probably have skipped
    every coaster


    Oh, man. You poor thing.
    You wrote it like it's funny, but...

    I know it hurt you, and for that
    I'm sorry that it happened.


    That sounds really good!
    Glad you got that.



    Nah. I'll post it in plain language.
    Probably after I finish up
    this portion of the TR.
    Hmm.... in 3-4 more updates?


    Honorary Canadian.

    They're not for everyone.
    They're possibly my least
    favourite.


    :eek:

    I've been to Nebo's and Smidgy's home.
    But they know me a bit better...

    I think a public place is a good idea, actually.
    But I wouldn't hesitate if someone said.
    "Come on over!"



    Me too! :lmao:


    Nope! That was the actual packaging.

    I didn't notice until later,
    but there was a third method.
    Stovetop.

    Reason I didn't notice was because
    most of the directions were normal...

    But the first line was:
    Get package back from
    recycling since you need
    it for the directions.

    :laughing:

    That's what I said or will say again when you're here in May, but I suspect Elle will nix that.
