Ignorance & Indifference

22 Feb

So, right this minute, one kid is on a ride with her mom while we switch off watching the one who’s napping.

The vacation I’m enjoying has a lot to do with hanging out with these people who are my family, yet whom I only get to see for a few very stress-packed hours on weekdays and a couple of days each week we call “weekends”.

This is a Disney vacation, and we’ve ventured off-property only a handful of times. It’s the first and likely last time we’ll do this, and it’s been so packed with fun stuff we haven’t gone to the pool, and the kids haven’t noticed.

I’ve also vacated myself from giving a rat’s ass about Buffalo – Chris Collins’ bullshit interview with Matt Spina, and news of a boarded-up Statler notwithstanding.

That’ll pack ’em into that shite bunker we call a “convention center”, even if they do give it a shiny new Failsign.

See you in a few.

    Too bad you can’t spend the rest of your life in Disney. No worries , nothing bad happens, no one dies, animals can talk.

      Steel, you obviously have never been to the torture chamber called “It’s a small world”

        I refused to go into that one, even as a kid

      Actually, none of the characters talk except the ones in shows or parades. I also walked more in the last week than anywhere since I was in London.

        Walking? Oh that is too bad. They really need allow cars on that Main street and maybe demolish a few of those storefront victorians for some parking. Mabe add in a freeway between theme parks too.

        They really ought to do more waterfront development on the man-made lake at Epcot.

    You have to do what you’re doing otherwise you go crazy.

    Be sure to check out Celebration, downtown Orlando (slowly improving), and downtown Winter Park.

    Stay for the Epcot show, if you haven’t done so already.

      The closing show that is.

    I don’t know if you guys have done it yet, but if you’re still venturing around and head to MGM (Hollywood Studios, whatever they’re calling it now) and go to the Great Movie Ride, request to be seated on a tour with Ashlie (if she’s working). She’s a friend of mine doing the College Program.

    Alan,

    I hope you’re having a great vacation!

    -Max
