  1. I'll add to that one. Boysenberry pie from Knott's makes me very happy . And no traffic on the way to work, but when does that ever happen .
  2. Is it really that bad? I actually found it quite pleasant . I can never complain about a place that gives you free breakfast .
  3. ^Sorry to hear that, exes can be so annoying sometimes. Mine isn't so much a rant, but something that I first found very frustrating, but couldn't stop laughing afterwards. As everyone in my office was getting ready to leave tonight, I decided to make one last run to the restroom. When I got out, the whole place was dark and locked up. I took three steps towards my cell phone to call up my boss and the alarm started sounding. So yeah, there I was waiting for ten minutes until my boss came back and listening to that delightful sound ringing through my ears. I was ready to yell at him for locking me in, but before I had the chance he wanted to know what I was doing in the restroom for so long. I didn't even realize I had taken all that long, but we couldn't stop laughing about it. I can only imagine what the story around the office will be tomorrow morning. :?
  4. I wanted something that reflected my interest in all things Disney (theme parks, that is ) but mainly my home park, Disneyland. Since Team Disney Anaheim has been getting their act together after a decade of neglect (thanks, largely, to Matt Ouimet) I went for my following screenname. Considering what exactly is going on at the parks, the smell Team Disney emits could be a good thing or a bad thing (currently a good thing). I do admit, I wish I hadn't used so many underscores. It's such a pain to sign on everytime.
  5. Time for another Retro Photo TR! Back in college, I joined ASG (Associated Student Government) and was a Senator for a year and then went off to become a VP for another. This was one of our many retreats, back in January of 2002. Although this one is not as retro as I'd like it to be, it was one of the best times I've ever had at SFMM. I'll let the pictures tell the story. Enjoy! Oh, but the night is not quite over. One of our Senators decided to keep those who stayed awake entertained with some exotic dancing. One last shot of the park from the parking lot. And we say a fond farewell to the Mountain. Thanks for an awesome time! Some couldn't wait to hurl after a day of coasters. Our president, Randy, does us proud. Here's a group shot with Valencia Falls (is that what it's called?) in the background. One last ride on Goldrusher. Some of of us just can't seem to stay awake. Time for some Goliath goodness. I know not many people on the boards like this coaster, but I enjoy it very much! I'll let everyone guess what point this is in the ride. I hurt my back taking this picture, but it was totally worth it. You don't get many "Kodak moments" like this one. I guess some of us are more excited than others! Hey, who'se that loser on the right? A quick shot of me and Brandy before rushing for gold (ok, bad joke). Most of the crew in line for X. Two or three chickened out... pansies! My friend Jaime. I guess she can't wait to ride Colossus in the background. Sigh... I miss gas prices like those. To think, those were considered pretty expensive back then! Here's the crew up and early ready to hit the Mountain. We stayed in a motel somewhere in Castaic.
  6. Wow, this is what I would do if I had a billion dollars: -pay off my college debt -buy parents their dream house -pay for bro's and brat!'s college tuition -built a house in Big Bear, one in Chicago, and one (or more) in Mexico -find a knee specialist so I can run again -finally donate to all the charities I've been wanting to (too many to list ) -go to WDW so I can say that I've been to both coasts
  7. Great TR as always, Sören. Once again, you've made me hungry.... mmmm, cake . What is that star-shaped fruit in the picture? I've never seen anything like that here in the states?
  8. Thought I'd resurrect this topic... I can' believe they killed off Shannon! I admit she wasn't the strongest character, but she was a work in progress, and that's what I loved about her. She didn't even get her own flashback until tonight, and then they decide to kill her off? WTF? I wanted to see how far they can take her, but I guess that'll never happen. I would have prefered to see the stupid redneck go rather than Shannon.
  9. I worked at Knott's for two seasons, but I don't really count those days since I was working and not really playing (eh, who am I kidding ). I don't really keep count, but the only park I've been to more than 20 times is Disneyland.
  10. ^Wow, no kidding :shock: . So exactly how many more of you are there ?
  11. I never order popcorn when I go to the movies. But if I'm having a movie night at home, that's a different story. I LOVE popcorn popped fresh in a pot (no microwave for me, thank you) with a lot of salt and hot sauce (no butter, either). Mmmmmm, I'd rather have that than chocolate, ice cream, or any other junk food.
  12. I actually detest the taste of alcohol . But I understand that alcohol also enhances the flavor of certain drinks. My favorites would have to be midori and amareto(?) sours, because you cannot taste the alcohol.
  13. Woohoo, more Retro Photo TR goodness!! Awesome job, Julie!! My family and I were at the park that August for my dad's 50th b-day. Glad you enjoyed DCA. I also enjoy it, it perfectly compliments it's big sister across the way.
  14. A friend sent this to me and I thought it was the funniest thing (well, at the time anyway ). Just thought I'd share this with all of you. Enjoy! 20 Ways To Maintain A Healthy Level Of Insanity 1. At lunchtime, sit in your parked car with sunglasses on and point a hair dryer at passing cars. See if they slow down. 2. Page yourself over the intercom. Don't disguise your voice. 3. Everytime someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries with that. 4. Put your garbage can on your desk and label it "In." 5. Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has gotten over their caffeine addictions, switch to expresso. 6. In the memo field of all your checks, write "for smuggling diamonds." 7. Finish all your sentences with, "In accordance with the prophecy." 8 Don't use any punctuation 9. As often as possible, skip rather than walk. 10. Order a diet water whenever you go out to eat, with a serious face. 11. Specify that your drive-thru order is "to go." 12. Sing along at the Opera. 13. Go to a poetry recital and ask why the poem doesn't rhyme. 14. Put mosquito netting around your work area and play tropical sounds all day. 15. Five days in advance, tell your friends you can't attend their party because you're not in the mood. 16. Have your co-workers address you by your wrestling name, Rock Bottom. 17. When the money comes out of the ATM, scream, "I won, I won!" 18. When leaving the zoo, start running towards the parking lot, yelling, "Run for your lives, they're loose!" 19. Tell your children over dinner, "Due to the economy, we are going to have to let one of you go." 20. (Lame :? ) Send this to.... blah, blah, blah.
  15. I like most spearmint gums, but lately I've taken a preference to original Trident.
  16. I fell in love with San Juan, Puerto Rico. Beautiful city on a beautiful island with beautiful people 8) . I'm also partial to my hometown. It's nothing special, but it feels so right. As far as places I want to visit, I would love to take a road trip across Central and South America and experience the different Hispanic cultures.... after all, we're not all Mexican . Japan is also a must, especially Tokyo, or as my Japanese friends tend to call it, the "concrete jungle." :shock:
  17. I think ALL professional sports players are overpaid.
  18. I turn on the radio this morning and the first thing I hear is a Christmas jingle for some jewelers :shock: . WTF? Wasn't Halloween just two nights ago? Whatever happened to Thanksgiving? I miss Thanksgiving . Thanks to all this over-glorified comercializtion, Christmas is officially dead to me .
  19. ^Well, you carry yourself very well. And it seems like you have a zany personality, not afraid to have fun.... Now that's hot 8) !
  20. Wow, you are quite a looker, Lou . I don't know why, but for some reason I pictured you as a brunette.
  21. Wow, that is an amazing drawing. Thanks for keeping us up to date on your progress. I've always loved pointilist drawings.
  22. I have never been on or seen anything that I will not ride EXCEPT this: I have no problem with High Roller, Big Shot, or even X-Scream, but this machine is just evil.
  23. I dislike raw onions (except on steak tacos... go figure), organ meats (heart, kidney, brains), and the worst to ever graze my tastebuds..... pinapple on pizza! Whoever came up with this should be shot.... well maybe not, since a lot of people do like this. I just can't stand the stuff. Other than that, I'm game with anything edible .
