    It's Time Josh Took The Plunge

    DH has done it a few times. The kids did it last time. They were 7 and 9 at the time. I enjoy standing at the bottom watching the people pull their suits out of their crevices. DH has also done this one, Leap of Faith at Atlantis Nassau. Yes, it's like Summit Plummet except the bottom third of...

    Read any good books lately?

    Mickey found the pocket Jamie. You have to look closely. Diana Gabaldon shared this on her FB page today. Starz still hasn't released a date for Outlander. They're still just saying "summer." There is a fabulous still of Claire behind a sitting Jamie who has his shirt off. Mmmmm. Just...

    Next Trip, First Stop Legoland Q's

    I did not look into lodging near Legoland but I imagine it would be less expensive than POR. I think I saw that they're building their own hotel. Yup, they are. Opening in 2015. By then you may be pros at one-night stays. It could be fun to stay there and smart to avoid the crowds at WDW...

    DLR vs Legoland

    With those ages, this would be the last year I would even contemplate going. DD11 was at first disappointed that she wasn't going on the Legoland trip. Then she looked at their website and realized she wasn't missing anything. It didn't help our day that we got poured on relatively early in the...

    Help!

    I know nothing about technology. DH, the computer programmer, won a Panasonic Lumix camera at his office party a couple of years ago. It's a pretty sucky camera IMO. I think one setting was in the wrong mode so I have a lot of pictures out of focus and with bad lighting. I stopped using it for a...

    Floridays - restaurants and things to do

    My sister and a group of her dog show friends will be staying at Floridays for a week. They'll be in classes during the days (she's trying to get certified as a dog show judge) and then going to the big dog show for the weekend. They will probably not spend the $$$ on a park ticket for one...

    What Are You Drinking?

    Not booze, but it's got booze in the name. Ice cream made just for Josh. I haven't seen "Anchorman" so I'm not familiar with the Ron Burgundy reference. Coming soon from Ben & Jerry's

    Rant thread

    I know, Pam!!! He's 6'3". I'm 5'10" so tall is a requirement for me. When you listen to him with that New Zealand accent, it gets even better. NBC Sports Network, 1pm PST today even though it's not listed in their program guide because the regatta should have been over a week ago. Here's another...

    Rant thread

    If Emirates Team New Zealand does not win the America's Cup today, I am going to have a heart attack. I have developed a massive crush on their skipper. Oracle Team USA has won 7 straight races. This should have been over a week ago. Crazy wind delays and low wind that caused NZ to not finish...

    Minecon 2013 in Orlando this Nov.

    So much easyWDW to catch up on! I've been away for months, wasting my time on other non-Disney related sites. Time to get back in the groove. It looks like I am taking DS8 to Minecon in Orlando, Nov. 2-3. It's the Minecraft convention for the game's devotees. I am pretty clueless about the...

    What's for dinner?

    Tonight it's quick and easy Mexican Pizzas. Both kids have different activities and DH likes to eat by 6:30 so he can heat his up before DS and I get back and DD can eat before she leaves. It's an old WW recipe. Ground turkey, seasoning, refried beans on toasted corn tortilla, baked for a few...

    I'm just saying...

    Oh sweet AC. How I love you. Power was off for 30 hours from Fri. night til this AM. I think it got to be about 95 degrees in our bedroom yesterday afternoon. DH and I had a wedding to go to. I got dressed in the basement and did my makeup in the car. The wedding was worth it, not only for a...

    Non-WDW summer vacation plans

    Since we can't all be hitting the hot & humid joy that is WDW in the summer, whatchya doing this summer? Where ya goin'? Who's goin'? We (me, DH, DD10 & DS7) are headed to CT in a week to celebrate my sister's 25th anniversary. It's really an excuse for my dad to throw a party. He loves a...

    Groupon for Zipcar

    There's a great Groupon for Zipcar today. I think it will be available for a few days. Basically you get the registration for free and are pre-paying for $30 of usage. Unfortunately they don't have any cars convenient to WDW. I was planning on using Zipcar in San Francisco this summer instead of...

    I'm just saying...

    The couch cushion and blanket fort was in the living room. Backyard camping was at a neighbor's. Anything without a mattress and a good pillow now is torture, plus the mosquitos would get me outside. I have pictures of DD when she was about 3 stretched out asleep on the stairs. She had probably...

    Disney postage stamps

    I just saw a poster at the post office for Disney stamps that will be available June 1. They had Toy Story, Monsters Inc, and I'm too scatter brained to remember the others - maybe Nemo? Cute, cute, cute for those of us who like a special stamp and not just the flag or liberty bell.

    cruises - not just Disney

    Yesterday I was talking to someone about their DCL cruise on the newest ship over Spring Break. They ended up booking another cruise out of NY for June. On our flight down to Orlando I got into a conversation with the people behind me when they saw me open up my Passporter. They were heading out...

    chocolate milk

    Here's some Disney dining minutae I need help with. Is there chocolate milk available? at parks? at resorts? at TS restaurants? We've got free dining so DS is getting the kids menu. I made DD an adult for dining. My kids don't drink soda. They drink chocolate milk (DS more so than DD), water (DD...
