You think someone would do something about that. Aren't there people trained to deal with sickness?

2 random thoughts from this most recent trip.

1. I keep looking for video of it, but I think the Mickey they used to announce the intro to the race had a mouth that moved as he spoke. I was pretty far away from it though so I wasn't sure if my mind was just playing tricks on me.

2. If you are a single Disdad, Princess half marathon weekend is the best time to come to Disney. They announced that this year there would be a 1000 to 1 girl to guy ratio.

Not sure on the Mickey, but I'll look out for video of it too...

And great point on #2.

I think I remember seeing a video of a Mickey like that at the Castle a couple of years ago. I think they had a Capt Hook that did that as well.

‘Morning all…

I passed 40 hours back on Thursday afternoon and am sitting here in the office again today.

Just lovely…


At least I can check in here once and a while.

Monday’s a holiday? News to me.
I’d ask my overlords about it, but I’m not sure they consider me to be human and I know that in their opinion I have no rights.

A Happy Birthday to the little girl you raised.
And a Happy Birthday to the young woman she has become.
Now go out and change the world Andriana.

It’s exacerbated by the fact that calling in sick is heavily frowned upon
(and detrimental to your continued employment).

Being as I work in a “Right to Work” state, I have no right to be sick.

Will have to research that one.

Good to know. Info I can’t use just now (being as I’ve already got me a Princess)…
but it’s good to know.

May have to tell the boy about that one.

Yeah i think they showed of that Mickey at d23, and I've seen videos of it online. I know they were testing it, but if it was the "talking Mickey" it would have been the first opportunity for many people to see it live.

Sorry you are back to the grind again today. Think of all that extra money you are raking in.

My wife and I thank you again for all that you have done.
Hopefully your family will find some comfort over the next few days and beyond. We will be here when you need us.

Where Melody works, they just banned visitors under 18 due to the flu.

If they did that where you work, you'd probably be bored!!!

That's cool. Too bad we were too far back to see.

Back in the mid 80s when I was made a salaried employee, I thought: “good, a constant amount that I can budget”… a fool I was.

About the time I’d been at it twenty odd years I added up the actual time I been working beyond the required 40-per, and divided the number in half just to be fair.

They’d have owed me six years of salary. I’ve now been at it over thirty years with dwindling resources and continually increasing work loads. It’s not even worth knowing the amount of compensation I’ve been deprived of at this point. If I got a third of it, I could retire tomorrow, take a job with a pubic service or charitable foundation (dong something useful and even rewarding) for a fraction of my current pay and be able to do quite nicely even on the social security cuts that are inevitably coming.


Let that be a lesson.
Being a hard worker and a loyal employee are not in your best interest.

Well, it doesn't sound so grand when you put it that way.

I guess I can be thankful for no sick days, no vacation days, & no insurance then. If I don't work I don't make money.... but at least when I do work I get paid.

Hey Dads,


Just got back from a work trip and it looks like I've got about 40 pages of reading to do. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.
