Oh, you mean the other Carolina. ;)
Unfortunately the “other Carolina” has had y’all’s number over the past 30 years. Maybe y’all can actually get the job done in a few weeks.

That's too funny!! Everything except the part about you almost falling. Mine was very strong also & it took me hours to drink it and I still didn't finish it. It was way too much for me!!
I drank mine in about 15 minutes or so while waiting for the bread basket thing to arrive. I was thirsty. I usually have a very high alcohol tolerance and one drink doesn't do anything to me. But that one snuck up on me!!!

I normally wouldn’t even notice what shirt somebody is wearing. However for some reason we’d noticed a lot of pirates and Steelers shirts that day, and had been talking about how many people from Pittsburgh must’ve been there!
I normally wouldn't notice what someone is wearing either but being from Pittsburgh I always notice when I see someone in Pittsburgh sports gear. I didn't notice anybody that day though!!
I don’t hate him or anything because he coached at Carolina. I, along with every other college football fan, just like to make fun of how he talks. :hilarious:
That video kind of threw me for a loop & has me a bit confused. What was that all about?

:oops:15 minutes!! Wow--you're my hero!! Whether it snuck up on you or not that it pretty amazing!!

That’s crazy i bet we saw a dozen that day! And a guy wearing a Pittsburgh fire department shirt was sitting next to us during philharmagic one day. I guess we were just lucky! Lol

So, in preparation for my upcoming trip I bit the bullet & attempted(attempted being the operative word) to watch a Star Wars movie for the first time in my life. R & I bickered quite a bit about which one I should watch first(the jumbled order of the way those movies were released reminds me of Pulp Fiction--my head was spinning like crazy by the end of it.) I finally decided on watching the one that was released first(A New Hope, I believe) but was actually 4th in line. At the end of it all R said he really gave me credit b/c I was really trying to follow along. I was asking questions & really trying to get into it. Then---wham, just like that I fell asleep(for a good 45 minutes.) I tried so hard to like it but I just couldn't. It's just not me. I was bored to tears.

I am, however, going to attempt to give it another shot. I told R that with no background knowledge on this I am going to have the most boring TR known to man b/c there will be nothing along the lines of commentary--as least for the SWGE part of it!!

I'd fall asleep too, no worries! We'll just read a lot of "there was dirty metal space stuff and weird space creatures".

I finally just caught up!
I had so many comments and now I forgot them all :banghead:
I'm happy you guys got the Star Wars preview - I got it too but my Mom told me I "have a couple screws loose" for even considering going because it is just a few days after our next trip :hilarious: Wish I saw the email sooner !

Moms HAVE to say that about crazy ideas, but it doesn’t mean we have a strong conviction behind what we are saying. As long as it won’t put a financial strain on you to do it, sometimes in life we need to act on the crazy 😉

This made me laugh! My husband (then boyfriend) and I were is college when A New Hope came out. Friends of his raved about it, so he took me to see it. I absolutely loved it while he fell asleep in the theater! Needless to say he did not take me to see any more Star Wars movies! My special needs daughter who I travel with loves the first 6 movies, but HATES the most recent 2, so the only things she wants to do in GE is try the blue milk ;)
My husband will do just about anything for his little girl, so on May 4th this year he took us to a special performance by our symphony where they showed A New Hope and the orchestra played the music live. It was awesome!! And he struggled to stay awake!

🤣🤣🤣 That about sums it up in my book!!
Oh, it's from a pregame show back when Holtz used to work at espn. It's a good example of his gibberish. :hilarious:
🤣🤣🤣 I don't know--I sense some hostility in that statement;)

Thanks--I am excited to check it out even though I know nothing about what I'm going to be seeing! My dad told me the same thing when I said that we were going for two nights. He thinks it's pointless. Any way to extend your trip?

I like the way you both think!!

Haha!! That's funny--you would think normally the girls would be falling asleep & the guys would be into it!! So, am I to assume that GE looks like the later movies then?
How sweet of your husband!! A few years ago R & I went to a show here called "One Man-Star Wars Trilogy". We had front row seats. At one point the performer started asking who saw this & that Star Wars movie. Finally he asked who there had never seen a single movie. I raised my hand & the guy looked astounded & asked me what I was doing in the front row then. I just pointed to R. The guy continued to make fun of me every chance he got throughout the show so I couldn't fall asleep like I wanted to!!

I can totally understand how you feel at Star Wars!!! I saw the first one ever in 1977 I believe and my boyfriend and I fell asleep in the theater. When we walked out, we looked at each other and said that we didn't understand any of it!🤣🤣🤣 Hopefully you'll still find the new land interesting.

I don't get into science fiction so it's no wonder that I don't care for it. Interesting that you both fell asleep--I'm wondering could it be the movie? The reason R & I bickered about which one to watch is b/c he said I would probably be bored with A New Hope. He wanted me to start with The Empire Strikes Back. Maybe that would have kept my attention better??--I doubt it though!! 🤣
I am excited to see the new land--& just to go to Disney in general!!:D

TUESDAY, JUNE 25TH

R had asked me to get him a Sprite while I was taking B to get food. I brought it back & sat down next to him. The next thing I know it looked like we were at The Fountain of Nations. R went to open the Sprite bottle & it exploded. R was absolutely drenched. I got sprayed with quite a bit of it. The guy sitting across from us even got sprayed with it. It was so embarrassing!!

These pictures don't even show how soaked R really was.

We apologized to the guy sitting across from us. He joked to R & said he saw me shaking the bottle the whole way to the seat.
View attachment 394668

BTW--that guy was Lou Holtz!!

There's R after he cleaned himself up.
View attachment 394670

R had said that while I was with B lots of people were coming up to him talking football or asking for pictures & autographs. I asked R if he talked to him & he said no & he surely wasn't going to now!! He was embarrassed by the whole incident!!

When we landed I went to change the weather on my phone to Pittsburgh.
I already missed Disney but I surely did not miss this!!
View attachment 394673

R & I both agreed that we felt cold that evening. The 60's aren't cold temps in the least but I guess we weren't used to them & it actually felt chilly!!
View attachment 394674
Look at that--rain 7 out of 9 days. Who would have thought?? :joyfull:

Well, that about wraps up this TR!! I hope you enjoyed meeting the family & I didn't confuse you too much. Don't worry the next adventure will just be "the same old crew." It will be much easier to follow!! Thank you all for following along!! I enjoy reliving my trips with all of you. Having the interaction with you is really the best part & makes it so much fun!! 21 days from today we'll be in the skies & on our way so I'll see ya real soon!!
Thanks for sharing your trip - I teared up at the end when you had to say goodbye to Riverside too.
looking forward to the next TR

The new land is based on the new movies. I agree that The Empire Strikes Back might hold your interest more. There is a lot more action and I think the characters are more fully developed.

Can't wait to hear all about it!

Thanks for reading!! I'm already tearing up knowing that I'm only going to be there for 2 nights here soon. I'm grateful that I am able to go but it keeps haunting me that less than 24 hours after arriving that dreaded envelope will be hanging on my door!
I'm looking forward to yours also & keeping my fingers crossed for a meet up!! 🤞

So, even if I watched the older ones I guess it won't help me that much then--with the land at least. Maybe I'll give The Empire Strikes Back a whirl though!!

Why is it that work always gets in the way of things?:hilarious:
Thanks!!
