Seriously. I think there was zero rushing on this trip.

I'll give you a little, tiny piece of info about din-din. There weren't more nommy rum-laced beverages.
Where we dined called for something a little more upscale.
Something white.
With a vintage.
At $7 a glass.

Hey, Tink, I can haz a nommy white glaz too?

You know what's funny? Since we got our new cats, dh has started to speak in lolcat, as well. It's really hilarious.

Well, they were consuming rum beverages. Who's surprised?

I hate that. I feel bad for people like that. Vacations are meant to be relaxing escapes. It's unfortunate when everyday life comes barging on in. Let's go back to the time when cell phones and Blackberries didn't exist. When your boss, heck, when your PROBLEMS couldn't find you while you sat under an umbrella'd table, enjoying an adult beverage while your kids frolicked in the pool.
I feel bad for the poor guy. I refuse to make myself available to anything work related when I'm vacation. I pretend it just doesn't exist.

You can use the whole song for CBR. Aruba, Jamacia, ohhh

That just doesn't sing as well does it?

I like that the most important part of the resort is clearly marked here.

I think it's impossible to keep that area neat. I try for the first day or so, and then just give up.

I love that shelf in the bathroom. POFQ has them too, and I'm always left wanting one in my bathroom at home for all my junk.

But no, simply putting TINK would not have sufficed.
Don't blame you. At least it fit!

Great update Tink! I found myself wondering about your migraine. Then I remembered I was getting my reports mixed up!

Have you tried the Grey Goose Slushie in France yet? It's one to add to your list. Hmmm, and I must add the Italian Margarita to mine. Intriguing......

If you want, and if you can find it, you sure as heck can! Believe me, I'll provide you with very specific info. on it.

Our cats have had "purrsonalities" since I got them and they've gotten stronger since BF moved in a couple of years back, so, we tend not to lolspeak with them, although I do a lot of it on the DIS. Go figure.

That was my rule for this vacation. Otherwise, because I have remote access, sometimes I get sucked in. I'm getting better about saying no though.

We'll get there fast and then we'll take it slow. THAAAAAT's where we wanna gooooo. Way down to Kokomo.

Ok, now that's stuck in my head.

But that's ok because it replaces Sweet Caroline.
Which replaced Pink's Please Don't Leave Me.
Which replaced Katy Perry's Vegas song.

As you can see I've had stuff stuck in my head all day.

I do better on solo trips but I think Kat and I enabled each other to have a sloppy table! HA!

I've not yet been brave enough to try that slushie, though I've come close on two occasions. If I really had to rate the alcoholic drinks that I've had, the Italian Margarita would be my #1. It's a tad expensive but it's a good size serving and it's SOOOOO worth it!

OMG, Tink, you have to do a Grey Goose slushie. I didn't get to do one for my June trip--I had the kids basically by myself in Epcot and I did not think it was a good idea to be a lush with the kids. Then again, on second thought--having the kids with a little Grey Goose in me may have been a winning combination. . .

Love the visual!

And ick on the fridge.... I do hope they cleaned it for the next guest. Did you happen to spy anything in there during the 1.2 seconds you had it open?

A Biblical return, eh? That could be good-like Jesus style, or perhaps more like Noah...

Your room looks terrific! I have to say, I'm most excited about the shelf by the shower -- that is AWESOME. Should be mandatory in all rooms! Love the window decoration. I have to get myself over to the dollar store!!

Can't wait for more.

Actually, the smell took about 5 seconds to hit me full on and the fridge was positively empty - and really clean looking! But didn't feel really cold. That was as far as I got before my failing olfactory lobes required I slam that puppy shut!

Hehehe. One of those is right on. You don't even KNOW how right on. Wait and see...

Should be mandatory in my bathroom...though we do use the window sill the same way so what am I complaining about???

Be careful. It can be addictive. You'll find yourself buying stuff just because it's only $1. It's best to go with a list. Like not going grocery shopping when you're hungry. LOL

Those pictures are wonderful........the room is so beautiful!!!! Is that what they consider a Nemo room? I thought I read somewhere that the non-pirate rooms were now considered Nemo rooms........

How close were you to a bus stop??

Yes, it's a "Nemo" room and you're right, all non-pirate rooms are "Nemo" rooms.

Looking at the map that I posted you can see on the bottom-right-ish area the bus icon. That's the nearest bus stop and while it looks far, at the most it's a 2-3 minute walk, if that. And it's a "flat" walk, no hills, across the parking lot(s). The maps really don't do the resort justice. It's all a lot closer than it seems.

I hope you don't mind me answering you. I have read that there are Nemos in the bedspread and on the boarder. I have seen pictures too but can't remember where, maybe Heidi has some from her trip. I think that is where she stayed.
