For jiggery_pokery, for I instantly thought of you when I saw it:


I was about to write that we were out of the woods as far as virii go, but now there is a variant. I have to laugh that this one does a denial of service against www.microsoft.com instead of www.sco.com like the first one.

Now, where was I? Oh yes! So Saturday I had a surprise birthday party scheduled for my wife. She thought she was going to her friends Mary's house to do a Mary Kay party thing with "the girls". I had everyone there about 15 minutes earlier. Absolutely surprised her. She had no clue. A good time was had by all that were there, which is always a good thing. I pretty much kept this small -- the rents, some of her work friends, and some of her non-work friends. Maybe 20 people there. A good time was had by all, including and especially Jen.

However... on the way to said birthday party, guess who had a tire blown out of his vehicle? *raises hand* I could have changed it myself, but I was in nicer clothes, and that's what I pay AAA for, right? I was shooting to get at Mary's at noon, and ended up arriving at 12:50 -- ten minutes before Jen was set to arrive. *yipes*

The next day with a visit to Disneyland with two friends, as well as their 6, 5, and 3 year old girls. You know, those three little people in a great big park can really wear a person out! A good time was had by all, right up until dinner. Whatever you do, do not buy pizzas while at Disneyland. *shudder* I've had better pizza [Pizza Hut | Dominos | Little Caesars], and that ain't sayin' much!

BTW, I am currently hosting this round of guess_that_show, so feel free to join us! *plug plug*

Yeah, we did that when we went last Spring. There was some place in Toontown that served us the most awful pizza ever--we ended up feeding it to the pigeons.

My favorite place to eat in all of Dizzyland is the Village Haus, over by the Matterhorn and teacups. Alas, that place was closed the days we were there. There's another very good fried chicken place on Main Street somewhere.

Whee! I have an online music video of a remixed track derived from the Sesame Street pinball sequences. Unfortunately it misses out the swishy steel drum bits which were always great and the video mutates into Yellow Submarine / "When I'm 64" psychedelia, but it's still pretty cool. It is sad to think that soon a generation of kids will be so unfamiliar with pinball as to not understand the sequence.

At one point you posted a link to said video, which is why I though instantly of you when I saw that icon from someone else. =)

Wha....?!?
Having a Annual Passport to Disneyland and me being there, I'm surprised I missed ya! Well....not too surprised, I mean, it IS a pretty big theme park. How is it that we go to all of these places at the same time, yet we've only ran into each other...once! Anyway, glad to hear a good time was had. As for food, Village Haus really is the way to go in Disneyland, excellent food, and great salads. =) But really...how?

Really?
You were there? As you said, it's a large place... I was the one there with the three kids and five adults.

What, you didn't notice?

Thanks for the warning, but...
Thanks for the warning, but if you count Naples Pizza at Downtown Disney (not within Disneyland Park), well, then, it's too late for me. I had some kind chicken pizza (I don't remember the exact name) when I visited last November. It was okay, but I'm not used to eating that stuff...
