    Watch out, if someone sees you being flexible, your curmudgeon status could be brought into question!

    As long as I still complain while I'm being flexible, my status remains intact!

    I've never been "that guy", but I have been on camera before and mocked by the two-headed monster.

    Does adding the countdown widget to my phone's home screen count?

    We got a dog sitter! So the beagles can stay home at Cara's house, but they won't get to see their uncle Joey or their friends Graycee and Ella.

    I was "that guy" at Monster's Inc. Laugh Floor. They give you a "That Guy" sticker after the show. I wore it and had so much fun. People were coming up to me all day saying "Hey, it's That Guy!"

    Been there, done that! Yeah at my previous job I would book my own motels and such to get the points from expedia so I have a little credit there. Even was able to book it for two whole crews for a couple of months.

    Bought our annual passes for the years trips. Now everything is paid for on the June trip except the Garden Grocer order which I Plan on doing soon.

    Most excellent! Always nice to just have to worry about cash food purchases and souvenirs.

    My new AP MB2 arrived in the mail today! They were out of the little 'Passholder' loops that go on it but said they will ship it later on. Not as nice as the older ones that had the year on them anyway.

    Picked up $300 in gift cards at Sam's for the trip at their 5% discount rate. Add in the Passholder discounts and I'll save a few bucks on the trip.

    My WDW Trip Accomplishments of the day :) Part 4

    I'm back in the game!!!!!! Free dining deals were released a week earlier than Disney fanatic website stalkers expected today for U.K. Guests. I don't normally even consider booking the first week as Disney have a habit of messing with hotel prices while they test the market. However. Having been a DIY booker for a decade I got a price with a new independent TA with a bit of money off the hotel/tickets/free dining but a whopping 1.2k () off flights compared to summer prices I've paid the last 7 years. So I'm in Beach Club July 2018 for 14 nights here we come. The Queen of the mega long countdown strikes again!!!!!!

    Sounds awesome! I vote they go back to tickets US-London for $599 or less like it was. These current airfares are absurd.

    My accomplishment I forgot to mention was successfully (I think) gluing a few small tears in my super-lightweight park shoes so they should last at least one more trip before retirement. Yes, I'd rather buy a dozen Epcot beers than buy a new pair of shoes!

    ^ I vote they go back to those prices too!!! The Disney price part has hurt a lot this time due to the horrible (for me, great for you guys should you wish to visit the U.K.) exchange rate.

    I had to re-read this a couple times before I figgered it out. I mean, why would there be TEERS as in crying in your shoes?

    Well for instance if your long-anticipated trip got canceled, you might cry into your shoes. Or if they decided to remove Pirates, or close the Rose & Crown...

    Hmmm, I'm going to have to find a Sams member to pick me up some gift cards.
