    I'd like to meet them all!

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Wonder how it will go over with others.
    Yep, I'm hearing that too. Hearing it is drawn out, prep before the actual ride and drawn out after the ride. Even seeing your picture after the ride is a process and a maze to get out. Wonder if there is a way to opt out of some of the stuff after you do that once or twice. Haven't heard bad things about the actual ride though, but hearing it was mostly interior visual design changes more than experience changes.

She also said there are not many props left in the ride, it was all converted over to tv's. Just passing on info that I heard, I certainly don't want to make others think its not a great ride, that was just her opinion. Sounds like it may be lacking some theming. She also said the ride wasn't running reliably, which is Test Track's usual behavior. Maybe that had something to do with her disappointment (not sure) but you would think the maintenace and operating issues would've been corrected in the long rehab.
    See that was the problem with Space Mountain rehab. They made the queue better but the ride remained unreliable. If they take Splash down for as long as they are, I hope it comes out on the other side more reliable with everything working, that would be novelty.

    We had a fabulous Thanksgiving day off yesterday at my folks with all the family, although I did spend a good portion of the day sketching on the Dubai project. Met with the partner this morning, came in to bs, had a mid-shift at TDS, and am now closin' bs.
    Well at least for once you were able to join your family at your folks for a celebration. Nice to have a day off for once. My DH had Thanksgiving Day off too. He went to work today so he'll get paid twice for today but Wed. night and Thursday were the only days he really had time to spend with my DD while home on break. Sad for him.

    I agree. It also shows how owners can manipulate the heck out of retail employees. I've pretty much accepted Friday madness, but I believe 5am on Friday was stupid enough. Irked by the 12 am Friday morning mall openings but even more at the Thanksgiving 8 and 9 pm evening openings. If I hear one more persons snarky comment of 'if they don't like it quit and find another job' I'm goin'n wanta smack 'em.

    17 and 12... I picture like 4 year old doing that



    Well at Band Camp we fill glassed with food and stuff and then we ask the basketball game to drink it.... Oh man things we do

    OK, in all fairaness there are only 44 rides in WDW, and some people like to do the kid rides and I don't. One last thing you didn't do everything because you have to eat eveywhere to do everything. I'm sorry if i'm trying too hard but it's been known for a long time that you just can't do everything in one trip.

    Took the boys to the zoo today. They were wild. Really working on being in self control when not on medication. It is a slow and stressful process.
