Not gonna happen. This time.

Oh, and this:

Did anyone place a wager on how soon Iíd be back in the trip report writing saddle?

Let me know. Iíd like to publicly recognize the winner. I can think of a few people around here who are likely to have gotten it right. Or at least darned close.




So, yeah. Here it is, yet another trip report. Wondering what on earth I have to say after five of these things? Youíre not alone. So there.


I honestly have no idea what shape this one might take. But I know this much:


Itís different.


Than the others.


One of these trip reports is not like the others,
One of these trip reports just doesnít belong.
Can you tell which trip report is not like the others,
By the time I finish my song (ramble)?



My past trip reports have been about single trips.





Except for that one that covered two trips, really close to each other. And that one that had a Food & Wine Fest report thrown in. Oh. And that other one with a Food & Wine Fest thrown in. And that last one that included pictures and memories of a bunch of past trips.





Crap.





Maybe itís more like this:

Four of these trip reports belong together
Four of these trip reports are kind of the same
Can you guess which one of these doesn't belong here?
Now it's time to play our game.



Heh heh.


Hereís what Iím getting at: best consider this one sort of a progressive trip report. Or a continuing trip report. Perhaps an enduring trip report? Would you buy a protracted trip report? Maybe itís a chronic trip report.



One thingís for sure, if youíve made it this far, youíre likely thinking itís a pernicious trip report.


Shout out to Mr. Roget.

And the Mrs. Can you imagine living with the guy?



Where am I???

Oh yeah Ė so this trip report will be more like a bunch of trip reports. In one, easy-to-locate thread. Which may or may not include links to updates. That seems a little too easy. I can promise directions to each update from the front page, though.

The reason for this new(ish) format is that Iím just not taking any long WDW trips for the rest of 2008. And Iíve been, erÖ encouraged to continue writing. But itís kind of hard to get excited about spending the time and mental energy required to write a TR for a weekend trip. Iím hoping a series of short trips, though, will prove motivational.


So, to everyone who er,Ö encouraged me to write again, thank you for your support; here's hoping you wonít be disappointed. For any new readers just checking in, hereís hoping Iím able to keep your interest.


Mesdames et Messieurs, je vous prťsentÖ.

I was definitely rue-ing? ruing? (whathaveyou - I was sad) the loss of a daily dose of V and figured that just meant I'd need to spend more time on my pre-trippie.

But then I find this: Like a Bad Meal (V Keeps Coming Back)

And I'm all like this:

And then a little like this (but with less potassium):

And now I'm like this (because it's one of those days where I want to consume everything in site, and what goes better with massive food consumption than popcorn?):

Yay for the progressive, continuing, enduring, protracted, chronic, trip report! While it puts my drivel to shame, I'm excited to be here.
