    A link? A friend? A search? By accident?

    i was on another trivia site, & asked if anyone knew anything about the old Swan boats. Well, a buddy of mine on there (NormanB8S) gave me a link to this site. The rest as they say is.... history.

    It was a google search one day when I was bored at school waiting for my students to finish testing. Now I find my self testing and giving writing prompts so I can get on! (Just kidding! I follow the rules.)

    When I got your book for Christmas last year from my DH (if he only knew the can of worms he was opening!!! )! I read the book the entire week between Christmas and New Years and then officially became a member of DWT on January 1, 2005!!!!

    I was scanning some of the threads on the DISboards, and this website happened to be mentioned in one of them. I decided to check this site out, found out how fun this site is, and the rest, as they say, is history!!!

    It was a reference from Allearsnet.com
    It's a Disney thing. If you understood, your only question would be "can I go?"

    Once upon a time in a Chalk Circle far, far away.....

    <--- I had been minding my own business as a Sassy but humble Parks Game player on the disboards when to my horror The dis went down... for a week! Being the obessed... uh... er... diligent WDW trivia player I am, I headed over to wdwmagic looking for other misplaced disers to find out was going on at the dis. Afterall, I knew all too well how the boards could get slow or be down for short periods of time, but a week???? I just didn't know what to think.

    I get there and asked around a little finding out no one knew what was going on. So... I mosey on over to the games section of wdwmagic and start playing along all the while I kept vigil on the fate of my Parks Game home.

    While in my unexpected exile, I met several really great people over there..... and this guy, to keep his identity confidential, I'll call him "Ace". Ace was a funny guy who played all of the games. He enjoyed challanging me and joking around. (I think he was a bit "altered" by a wicked mixture of Pepsi and M&Ms. ) As fate would have it I am a night owl and he happened to be on the internet late at night while he was writing a book on Walt Disney World Trivia. Go figure.

    So we... me and this Ace dude.... we talked ... about life, family and WDW. We found we had a lot in common and became buds. We spent many a night keeping each other awake writing, editing, playing games, fixing typos and drinking Pepsi (DCoke for me of course. ) Someday I hope to meet this "Ace" character. .......


    Long story short (too late, huh?) Some guy I met on the internet late at night while he was writing a book on Walt Disney World Trivia created this site for us to play games. He's okay in my book.
