I’m on Vacation in Orlando! Yay for me 🙂 I didn’t know if I’d get a chance to write a blog or not, since there is sun to be lying in, pools to be swimming in, and theme parks to be gauged at (financially of course). Luckily (for me) we are staying at a time share resort, and if you are familiar with those arrangements, you’ll have probably already sat through one of their sales pitches (information sessions as they like to call it). I didn’t think that I’d be able to get a blog in this week (breaking a 2 week streak of successfully doing so), but due to the heroic efforts of my wife, and in-laws (who are sitting through a presentation as we speak), I was able to get an hour of free time with the lap top. So if you end up taking a liking to my musings of the day, please take some time to think about the sacrifices that were made by others to make this happen as well as ensure that we secured a reasonable rental rate for inflatable tubes for the duration of our stay.
As you read more of my blogs and some of my crusty disposition comes out a little more, you might be surprised to know that I am a sucker for theme parks, and particularly susceptible to the charms of Disney. I would go as far as saying it’s ‘magical’ (a word I’ve used to describe BBQ, and bowel movements…… but only the very best ones). As a guy who’s afraid of heights, I enjoy the slow-moving detailed approach to Disney. It’s not a bunch of big, fast, high rollercoasters. It’s little carts slowly moving through a lazy river of meticulous detail, from the way the characters mouths move in sync with the music, to the mist they spray on the back of your neck to make a fake jungle seem like a real jungle. It’s parades in the street with dancing Goofies and fireworks and candy apples. It’s photo ops with stuffed animals, balloons, and happiness. IF THEY COULD TAKE HAPPINESS AND SHOOT IT INTO YOUR MISERABLE LITTLE VEINS, only then could you possibly, maybe understand a bit of what Disney is all about……….I just read this back to myself…..what a loser! Anyways, it’s fun and I’m looking forward to that tomorrow. Today is all about the inflatable tubes. Swimming will never be the same.
On another note, if you’ve been following this blog since it’s inception (2 weeks ago), maybe you noticed that I changed the layout. I’m not really good at this stuff so I took one of the pre-selected options. I think this one is called ‘Elegant Grunge’. That sounds so cool. I don’t know what the other one was called, but if I was commissioned to make a name for it, I would call it “Kid eats way too much fucking cotton candy, washes down with cream soda and projectile vomits”.
My Mom’s birthday is tomorrow…. Happy Birthday Mom!!
