I see the point, though. I can understand taking into consideration one's long-term prospects.

You guys still have a DisneyQuest? The one in Chicago was so fun and then it was gone...

Closest thing to a Disney park I've ever been to.

It was cool. We had one of the girls birthday parties there in 2000 or 2001.

I remember DisneyQuest! It was a good place. They probably didn't run it right.

Hello Regs! Did everyone have a nice weekend and Cinco de Mayo? We had one final storm on Friday evening but by 9ish it was clear and the rest of the weekend was beautiful.

IIRC, we paid about 30 bucks to get in and then played unlimited video games for 8 hours, breaking for lunch to eat at Ed's. Not really a good business model on their end, affordable fun for poor college students.

I made crock pot chicken tacos for Cinco, then ended up going to a pizza pub instead with my hockey team. So Cinco shall be celebrated tonight...and for the next several nights.

Nice.
:)

I watched the Sunfest fireworks (finale night) from the rooftop of my building, then went to a cool Mexican restaurant downtown and had guacamole and pork tacos. A wasted girl was at the bar next to me celebrating her 21st birthday and she was standing on her chair/barstool and it was inevitable that she'd fall. She landed HARD but rallied. I'm sure she's hurting this morning though!

I took my son at the time and I even had fun. We paid a price to get in but it only lasted for so long. I don't remember $30 for 8 hours. That's a good thing b/c I don't think I could have stayed there for 8 hours. I'm not that much into games. But they had some really good virtual reality things and whatnot. We went like twice.

Got recruited into helping a friend move back into his house. Him and wife had moved to CA and rented out their house. Now he is back and wife will be along shortly. Invited him over for some chili. I am kinda sore today, I hate helping people.

Is Disney Quest in Downtown Disney? Because I heard something cool abotu that, I think. We never checked it out, though. How much is it? Might be something fun to do with my niece and nephew this summer when they come down.

We did MK from about 9:30 till abotu 6:30 Saturday then spent 2 hours at Epcot. We thought about catching the electric parade at MK again, but we were too wiped and needed to get home and let the dogs out!

I was going to help a friend/coworker move on Saturday because he was so desperate, he emailed the whole company asking for help (two weeks ago). Then cabin opener got moved to Saturday and I had to bail on hepling him.

By the time cabin opener got moved to NEXT week, coworker was already annoying me by taking as much crap from our remodeled office (we're still remodeling)-- unwanted shelving (big stuff), countertops, etc. And I said to him, "Is it really the best time to be scavenging lots of big stuff, before you have to move all of your belongings into three different places?" (storage locker, pod, and his in-laws -- they sold their house and don't have a hosue to move into yet, so they're moving into his in-laws' house and divvying up their belongings to various storage places)

His attitude: "It's free, I want it, we'll have to move it again on Saturday and then again when we buy our next house."

Coutn me out. In the middle of selling a house and moving is not the time to start acquiring lots of crap for your future work bench/garage/basement.

Hi! I was going to type Good Morning, but realized that it's afternoon already. Where has half the day gone already?

I had a great weekend. The weather was beautiful here, no one got hurt playing sports and my MIL says that she is still sick, so we stayed home yesterday afternoon, finally planted flowers around the yard and barbecued for dinner. It was nice spending time with just the immediate family.

I would refuse to touch any of that stuff.
The guy i helped likes to "Manage" Umm, no way dude, get your ass over her and grab a box. He tried to wander off a few times, and every time I roped him back in. Besides not being his underling, I had other sheit I needed to do.
