Jiminy

I don't think I've mentioned that this Friday I'm leaving for here. No? Didn't think I had. Mostly because I've been mildly dreading it. My aunt's family seems to go at least twice a week and have been begging my parents to go with them forever. Somehow my parents agreed this year. I'm going to tag along.

Look for my posts from Cinderella's castle, updates from the Haunted Mansion, missives from twenty thousand leagues below the sea.

Be ready, someone, please, to launch a commando-style extraction from the Magic Kingdom.

Please Paul . . . buy a pair of Mickey Mouse ears and take a photo for your blog. Additionally, all your readings on fishhouse need to be read with a Donald Duck voice from now on. . .

Don't fret. It IS the "Happiest Place on Earth" after all.

Sadly, there is no 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea ride anymore. They took it out years ago. I miss it. As a kid, I thought it was the coolest ride at WDW.

I heard the stepsisters ran a brothel behind the castle. Surely a good time to be had there! If you're desperate, call, i'm the closest and i have a closet full of super-space gear, ray guns and phasors.

I think, Oliver, there is a better than average chance of such a picture happening.

If so, I hereby swear to post it here on this blog.

We knew a commando-style extraction from the magic kingdom wouldn't be easy. The pirates were zombies, and had rabies and scabies. Goofy was hopped up on PCP, you could see it in his eyes: he felt invincible. Even Cinderella was ready with her grappling hooks, jujitsu, and non-fat lattes. But nobody had planned for Mickey, who had a gun, which was now (tomorrow) leveled at my groin.

FYI, never go to Matt's house for dinner, Paul.

I can be a part of said commando team, having trained in unconventional demolitions with Special Forces while I was stationed in Germany.

I am getting my fins and wet suit ready just in case I get the call.

Tom Cruise sucks, but I think the SIU crew has learned enough from Mission Impossible to extract you without a hitch. Can you meet us in an undisclosed neon location? Bring some Vasoline, just in case. By the way, the grads here love your work.

Go on Mission Space and all you're troubles will be gone.

I am an excellent commando. Muscle, muscle.

I am saddened to find that the 20,000 Leagues ride is no more. Seriously. That's criminal. Pirates of the Caribbean, though, that's enough, I guess

Paul said...

No Leagues? I think I knew that. I loved that ride and that movie.

Ack! I've been so busy finding cures and saving children (i.e., writing for St. Jude) that I haven't made concrete Meacham/Paul visit plans. For instance, I'm not sure where Sheri and I will stay. May we stay with you, Paul, or is your family still sore that we trashed the place?

Have fun in Orlando!

I'll say a Novena for you.
