ho ho humbug

I'm still bummed that Christmas is over.

Another trip to MouseWorld a couple of days ago. Started out in Epcot, stayed for a half hour or so, then hopped over to the Contemporary Resort to visit the arcade.

Beat the snot out of my friend in air hockey.

Played a boxing game that senses your movements. You grab these huge red glove-looking things, and actually swing at the screen. Thing is, though, I forgot to take my vest off, and it was hot anyway... I played through two rounds, until I mercifully lost, then I staggered over to a seat and tried to regain control of myself. I'm sure everyone's felt nauseated after overexerting themselves; thankfully, I was able to will myself back to normal.

Finished off the day in the Magic Kingdom, but left before the fireworks.

All in all, a mostly decent trip.

In other news, I'm probably going to be at the Adventurer's Club at Pleasure Island this Saturday.

I received some nice gifts this year, not the least of which are a JamCam digital camera and a portable CD player from Mom and a Premium Annual Pass to Walt Disney World from Dad.
new year's eve
If all goes well, I'll be in Epcot for New Year's. I was there for the past two, but it's likely going to be more difficult this year.

First of all, my primary advantage, access to the Cast Member overflow parking lot, has been blocked. This means that I'll have to join the crowd and wait in line. Actually, I'm not worried as much about getting in the park as I am about getting out. There are always traffic jams long into the morning. If you're going, remember to fill up your car, because people actually run out of gas while waiting for the jam to clear.

Also, I'm bringing a friend with me. This ought to be interesting.

Apparently OpenSourcesJapsEye certified me. Is there any way to reject a certification?
Gonna go run some errands.
