Don't know why but this makes me think of George of the Jungle. Of course, who could resist a hunky Brendan Fraser but anyway.

"What embarassed mean?"

"It means when you're worried about what other people will think of you."

"No one here to be embarassed for. Just George."

A little bit of TK randomness for you.

And let me just tell you, for such a big resort with so many rooms and, obviously, so many people, we Never. Heard. A. Peep.
It was lovely.
That is, without a doubt, one of my favorite things about this resort. No interior corridors, like WL, but just as quiet. I loved the quiet.

Quote:

The beds. And if it's REALLY crucial to your DIS survival to know - I slept close to the door, TK slept close to the bathroom. I really don't even want to know what Freud might make of that.
Hmph. You just had to share that, huh?

Well, if you must know. The reason that I always default to the bed near the bathroom is because it's the closest to the wall. Usually I end up with DS in my bed, so we put him on the side near the wall, and line the whole floor with pillows in case he rolls over and falls out. Now that he's older it's not so much of an issue, but the habit has stuck. Take that, Frued.


Quote:

(TK, I took the pen. I didn't know if you knew.)
I didn't know, but that's cool. I have a zillion WDW pens at home.

Quote:
Funny, it was bad enough that when Kat asked me if it was really THAT bad and I said, "You come over here and smell it!" with a mortified look on my face and my hand covering my mouth and nose from the offending odor that she said, "No. I believe you." Smart girl.
Which if anything, should be a testament to how much I love you, to take you so readily at your word that I don't even need to experience it for myself!

Quote:

We started unpacking and then we exchanged gifts. Each of us had gotten a little sumpn-sumpn for the other.
And all of it was great.
And all of it was very much 'personalized'.
And I have a picture of none of it. (TK, we might want to get on that, if I can find where I put everything...)
I'll go throw our photos today and see if I can find that it. I think we took pictures. If not, I know where my stuff is and can assemble it.

Quote:

It then took me approximately 6.5 years to decorate our window. Since I apparently couldn't come to terms with the fact that my screenname would, in fact, take up the ENTIRE upper portion of the window.

::sigh::

But no, simply putting TINK would not have sufficed.
During which I enjoyed a good chuckle. It was so funny to watch her try to fit her name up there and then realize it was so long she had to really use the whole upper portion of the window. I enjoyed unpacking to the sounds of Stacy and Tink and their running commentaries.

Quote:

Up Next: A Very Special Dinner and Our Biblical Return to the Room.
Biblical is certainly one word for it. I do have something to say about that portion though.

Are you taking the dinner chapter? I thought so. If you want to do dinner, I'd love to do the return to the room and the rest of the night.

Also, let me know what food art you need from me, I can't remember if we both have pics, or they're separate.

I think you'd really like a room in Jamaica. It was a very pretty area, and I loved how our buildings had the yellow and blue color scheme.

And proximity to the pool bar should be a priority.

Shopping with our eyes only - check

Time to check out the room.

That is my kind of check in experience.
I don't remember the last time I did a vacation this relaxed. I was definitely relaxed on my last September trip on the first day, but this was different. I was only responsible for myself, and that's a whole other feeling of freedom.

Where we dined called for something a little more upscale.
Something white.
With a vintage.
At $7 a glass.
It was SO good.

It was really convenient. I love it when they have that in the bathrooms, everything fits so nicely and doesn't get soaking wet because it's far enough back.

Can't wait for more.
Now that Tink made us such a pretty window decoration so inexpensively, I'm seriously debating this for future trips. Tink, did you use regular scotch tape, I can't remember?

Pooh'smate said it, they have a Nemo border and Nemo bedspreads. I really like it. I'm going to enlarge one of the photos Tink took so you can see it better.

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

I know TK discussed the NOM-iness of those beverages. And I even corroborated on that. But, as that's where we're picking up from, let me further extol the fruity-rumm-y virtues of the Pina Colava.
It's NOMtastic.

ahhh...I you guys.

So sorry to hear about the fridge smell. slightly disturbed that it went unreported. Love gifts exchanged, no fuss over who gets the bed by the door/bath and just the general roll with it, have fun, rumalociciousness
GIRLFRIENDISHNESS of it. I love it.

love it.

it is a gift

you are both blessed (and deservingly so)

Although I'd really like a HEAD on picture...I know it won't happen.

We are very blessed. And I was definitely revelling in the girlfriendishness of it.

No problem. I really think she'd enjoy it as well. I know it made me smile. I also loved the curtains. They're a beautiful shimmery blue (still great at blocking light) and just remind me of water. Very pretty.

I am so jealous, but still incredibly happy for you. I only vaguely remember only being responsible for myself. How relaxing that sounds. I hope you truly got to enjoy the experience for the whole trip.

It was very relaxing. A wonderful trip, all in all. I'm still reliving it.

Having no kids...It is entirely possible...probable...that I have no idea what true relaxation even is!

But it certainly seems like you guys are having a good time.

Yuck on the fridge!?! You guys are so easy going. I think I would have called the front desk on that one.

I can't wait for more!!

Tink doesn't have kids and she seems to have a pretty good idea. Well, she does have cats. And you have a dog! Hey that counts! They're just as high maintenance, trust me.

Honestly, I don't think we discovered that until later in the day, or even the next day.

We'll talk about those later.

I actually think, if I remember correctly, it took me 4 tries before I got it all to fit. Using all available horizontal window space.

It was definitely later in the day and we needed to solve the "how to keep the milk cold for now" issue first. Which we did with the ice bucket, no prob. I think after that (until now) we simply forgot.

Normally I'll report things like this but even though we were relaxed our minds were on a million other things.

Well, when I'm left responsible for other people, I end up putting away their Disney character crayons in a specific, anal retentive, rainbow colored order.

Ask TK's DS. Even HE gave me a funny look. LOL

Hey guys, was hoping for an update today but it's not going to happen. Work is very busy. Likely tomorrow or Thursday at the latest. Sorry to keep you hanging!

That fridge sounds revolting! Gag me!

A drink in a quiet place with a good friend and with no cares sounds like a little piece of true relaxation. Ahhhh!

Loved the window, too. Maybe we should contract you 2 to personalize our window for us?
