Pirate/Princess Party

Thank you old job for giving me free tickets to the Pirate & Princess party at the Magic Kingdom.

Jonathan and I attended the party on 1/26/07 (my last day at DVC). It was freezing cold outside - but the party was still fun. The best thing about all the MK parties is the random characters that are roaming around.

To get in the pirate spirit, Jonathan and I are wearing our bandanas we got on our wedding cruise during DCL's Pirate party.

I also tried to stalk Kate, but to no avail.

Jackpot - I never thought I would ever see Cinderella's evil step mom and stepsisters. I'm bummed that the picture turned out fuzzy.

Go Devil Rays!

Last Sunday Jonathan and I went to the Mall of Millenia (very posh mall in Orlando) to met some of the Devil Rays players.

Cubs fans - does this young stud look familiar? (Or, if you are a Saturday Night Live fan, this guy may look familiar ...)

RIP - my cell phone

Jonathan and I signed up for a 'family plan'. This meant "goodbye my phone company (Sprint - you were good to me)" and "hello Verizon!"
Every 2 years Jonathan receives $100 from Verizon to upgrade phones. Lucky for us, they had RazR phones on sale for $50. Free phones for us!
I now have text messaging (which I will never use b/c I'm too cheap), a camera phone, camera video, internet access (which I'm not paying for), I think some music thing, and the most important thing ... RING TONES!!!
My old phone just rang. Now I have over 1000 ring tones to choose from. I spend a solid hour my first day playing with them.
I was hoping the Jurassic Park theme song would be cool, but it wasn't the Bum-bum, bum-bum song. It was the do-do doooooo part. Nuts.
But I found a winner - Bear Down, Chicago Bears!!! Awesome!!!
I will miss my old phone. I lovinly called it "my '80s phone". Actually I think it's from 1999. If you've ever seen the Arnold Schwartzeneger movie Collateral Damage (admit it - nobody's seen it but me), they use my old phone to trigger bombs.
Goodbye old friend!


Happy Valentine's Day!

Jonathan and I celebrated our first Valentine's Day as a married couple in style!

By 'style' I mean we did the same thing we do every Wednesday. Eat dinner and watch TV. Wednesday is such a great TV night!

I did cook a good sized meal, for my standards: salad, chicken parmessian and strawberry shortcake!

Jonathan 'surprized' me with a really cute card, 3 carnations and the movie Snakes on a Plane. I wasn't really surprized about the DVD, since he wrapped it and put it under the mini Christmas tree (yes - I still haven't taken it to the garage yet!!! I keep ignoring it. It's a mini tree anyway, with no decorations. You hardly even know it's there).

I got him exactly what he requested (which is typical gift giving with Jonathan). He got Boost (from the movie Cars) in rip-stick racer form.


Top 10 TV shows

It's a brand new year, so it's time for a new "Top 10 TV shows I TIVO". (that has a nice rhyming ring to it).

Actually, I don't actually own a TIVO, but you get the idea.

In order, from least to most important:
Honorable Mention - The Rules of Engagement - New show staring David Spade and Patrick Warburton. For those Disney fans - it's an Empor's New Groove reunion! (I just watched this for the first time last Monday, I think I'll put into my rotation, but only time will tell if it sticks) - Fox
10. diy Scrapbooking - HGTV
9. B Original - HGTV
8. Creative Juice - HGTV
7. Bones - Fox
6. Best Week Ever - VH1
5. Monk - USA
4. Family Guy - Fox
3. Simpsons - Fox
2. Criminal Minds (or as Jonathan calls it, "the gross show") - CBS
1. CSI - CBS

And discuss . . .


Who is Tom Wilson?

Let's play more guessing games (since the last one turned out really well!) ...

A couple weeks ago, Jonathan and I went to the Orlando Improv to see comedian Tom Wilson.

Here is a photo:

Does he look familar ... say, from a movie (or series of movies). Ok, I'm giving way too much away!

And I have red eye - what's the deal with that?!?

And no cheating and 'googling' his name. All you'll find is Tom Wilson - creater of Ziggy (not this guy).

Good luck!

edit: You are all correct! It is Biff from Back to the Future. He was soooooooooooooooooo funny! If you ever see him coming to a comedy club near your town, it's 100% worth it. He sings funny songs, plays the guitar and tells hilarious jokes!

The first 5 minutes of the performance he let all his Back to the Future stuff out - 'butthead', "hey McFly", etc ... b/c he knew that's all we wanted to hear. He even sang a song about all the annoying questions fans ask him, "What's Crispin Glover like // Was that real manure // etc ..." I can't stress it enough - he is freaking hilarious!!!

After the show I got my Back to the Future DVD signed, and Jonathan bought a stock photo of him from the movie.


"New" blog

Ok - no more wedding talk.

Why did blogger change my font?

Can anybody name the TV show that inspired my blog's name? I'll give you a dollar. Go ...

Clue: It's from a TV show.

Clue: Ok, if Larelle didn't get it, I figure nobody will. It's from Futurama (the cartoon show that used to be on Fox.) If you've never seen it, buy the DVDs and watch them carefully. The show is hilarious and full of wit.
