OK, so I haven’t updated in ages. I’ve been too busy with this Boston lark. Still, I’m doing more updating than Florida, so be glad for that.
So, what’s happened since last time…
Work is going grand. Lots of WATIR scripting. If I never see another one of those scripts again, I’ll be more than happy.
Similarly, the home life is grand. We’re all getting on for the most part, even if there is occassional drama and the odd fight, but sure, such is life.
I’ve started learning Spanish using this tool thingy called Rosetta Stone. It’s working out quite snazz, and even though I feel like I have a load done, there’s still looooooooads more left to do, so I feel I’m gonna have buen Espanol afterwards, so that’s exciting.
The big news since last update is that I took a trip to Disney. Which. Was. UNREAL. (Shock, I know)
I left work on Wednesday evening (at the usual time) and headed to the airport. Big delays cos of the weather in pretty much the entire country being shite. After 4 hours, we finally left for Orlando, and arrived at Orlando International Airport in only a few hours. Our flight was actually lovely. They turned all the lights well down so we could have a snooze, and were lovely. And when they were doing the safety demo, there was an entertaining Disneyfied version provided by the gal who was doing the announcing… Had the whole cabin in fits of laughter-including the attendants. Fab.
The 4 days we had were also ridiculously fab. The weather was so good that I got (quite) burnt and had to buy a hat on day 2 to keep the sun off my face. Much fun was had by all, and we got in LOADS of time in Innoventions getting to see all the ol’ gang and spending far too much time with Kathy and Melody, and even lots of time with Meredith (who we love) in the parks. Michelle loved it, I loved it, Anne Marie loved it, there was generally lots of love.
Oh, and also, we were on the new versions of Spaceship Earth, O Canada and the Haunted Mansion and all are diriculously good.
Pictures to follow as soon as I can figure out how I did it the last time.
Oh, and also, I’ve now booked my hotel for the September trip (but not the August one…). 5 nights, 6 days at Pop Century. All dining included. 4 days park tickets. Transport to/from the airport. $506 each total! And CIARA is coming! Exciting! It’s her very first time at Disney, so I intend on making it the bestestest ever. Michelle may also be coming (TBD) and if so, we’ll be like crazy Disney tour guide extrodinaire…s…
Today, we went to Malden to try and find these ancestors of mine that Granda wanted me to look for. We walked all over Malden trying to find the place. Gave up and came home. Did eventually find it on Google maps, though, and it’s HUGE (and far from the T stop), so I emailed the custodian person to try and find out where exactly they are… Will try again next week. Whereupon we will get the bus, cos it stops right outside!
Finally, I tried to upload pictures, but it’s being finicky, so further research is needed. They’ll be posted as soon as I figure out how to… I think it’s a problem with Firefox 3…
