The 2011 New York Trip

Joe and I try to get back up to New York every year or two – besides giving us a chance to go “home” (Joe’s from New Jersey and I’m from Brooklyn and then Staten Island – although we’ve lived in Florida for 10 years now and love our adopted state, things just always feel more “normal” when we’re in Manhattan – the pace, the accents, the attitude – everything that I didn’t like about NY when I lived there (OK, except the weather – I still HATE the cold) gives me a happy sense of nostalgia when I go to visit), we get to eat “good” pizza and bagels, delight in drinking water straight from the tap and pack in as many Broadway shows as we can into a long weekend. With Anything Goes, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and The Book of Mormon all in previews, we decided now was a good time to go. So we made reservations for a Thursday to Sunday trip.

Of course, things can never go as perfectly as planned and this trip was no exception – we got the news that Read more…

Flash Mob Much? (Part 2)

Yesterday I talked about the flash mob I got to be involved with as a part of “celebrating tourism in Orlando.” That entry can be found here. Today I’m going to describe the flash mob I got to be involved with, thanks to my new choir, just about five weeks after that one.

After leaving our old chorus last autumn because, well, because of a lot of reasons, Joe and I joined a new choir in December. Rehearsals started in early February and so far it has been Read more…

Flash Mob Much? (Part 1)

How many people get to say that they were in a flash mob? Nope, not many. You have to know the right people, be available to be in the right place at the right time, you name it. Please allow me to toot my own horn for a moment…I was involved in not one but TWO flash months in the course of five weeks!

The first one was set up on, of all places, Facebook. Yep, that love-it-or-lump-it bastion of Read more…

Welcome, Foolish Mortals

By request (hello, Kat!), this blog entry is a “retweet” of a writeup I did for two online sources nearly a decade ago, of a Disney dinner event we attended at the Haunted Mansion.

Way back when, Joe and I were huge Disney fans and were at a time in our lives when we went to just about any Disney-sponsored event that came down the pike (unless it was Princesses. Screw the Princesses). During that time frame, when Disney restaurants hadn’t been “dumbed down” to (A) save them money Read more…

The Wonderful World of (No) Disney

There was a time where I was one of the biggest Disney Dorks known to man. Maybe not to the extent of Read more…

We Interrupt This Holiday Programming…

I’ve had the plague for the past week or so – probably the worst case of it that I’ve had in a good 10 or 20 years. It was the kind of “really bad cold” where I had to slow down on a lot of my everyday activities this time of year (I am SOOO behind on my baking!) and completely stop others (I only had 2 patients but I gave my visits away to other therapists so I wouldn’t risk spreading my germs to them) in favor of sitting, resting and watching more mindless TV than I’ve watched in years.

I got to watch a lot of Christmas specials that I usually don’t remember to tune into, like Read more…

Harry Potter and the People Watching Opportunities

Joe and I went to go see Harry Potter 7 (well, Part 1 of Part 7) the other day. Now, I enjoy the whole HP enterprise but wouldn’t say I’m fanatical about it. I read all the books, have seen all the movies and think the theme park section at Universal is done well enough where I was Read more…
