Whelp, was out with a friend and my car battery decided to die. Thankfully, I called my uncle, who was 10 minutes away, and he came and jump started it. Then he got this from me when I got home and was completely relieved.

Cute! And so sorry. :grumpy:

Where are you with all that new car stuff? :rolleyes:

Do you remember the old fruit and cheese platters at Starbucks? They’ve been gone almost 8-9 years now.. but they were my daily breakfast for so long.. I was crushed when they stopped selling them. ;)

But.. I was thrilled when they came out with the boxes last year! We stop at Starbucks for food quite often when running around and need fast food.. they have a great protein tray, T and I both love it. I can’t remember if you’re vegan or vegetarian, (edit- nm I think you’re vegetarian if I remember correctly). Price of a McDonald’s meal, but so much better!

I love ThanksGiving Sandwiches. Starbucks was the first place I had one years and years ago. Then Earl had them. Love them too but not nearly as good as Starbucks.

The thing I don't care for about Starbucks is the food is not fresh. It is all shipped in on trucks with racks of trays, all in plastic bags or plastic boxes. The expiration dates are very long from breakfast to sandwiches. That is where I believe panara has it over Starbucks. Panara may have some frozen stuff then baked on site but it isn't sitting around forever and day from warehouse to store to consumer.

Like it would have been real difficult for them to switch out the meat and use hummus instead. :confused:They must have some left over from The Lighthouse sandwich somewhere.;):hilarious:

I am not without empathy. I have a kid with allergy issues. The kiosks places like Gastons throughout WDW seem to offer either one vegetarian item and then they are out. Their menus are very very small. Roaring Forks on the other hand is beyond annoying as salad is the only other option for vegan. Even the Salads you have to ask them to omit the chicken breast (whole breast, not sliced) that is plopped ontop the salad bowl. That is their QS venue for a Deluxe Hotel. They need to do better. Parks at least there are many choices.

Pretty sure they're doing it on purpose not just to "prevent the trees block the view to the castle".

They are actively pushing people into restaurants and shops.
Same with the removal of places to sit down. They want you IN the shops or IN the restaurants. Not out eating freely.


???? Trees were part of the original imagineering, forced prospective. Now it is a castle plopped down at the end of the asphalt street. It was suppose to be a retro of Main Street USA, that included trees.

I have purchased Birnbaum for decades, back to the days when Steve was still alive and Birnbaum being the only on property guide book to Disney World. So....have you noticed over the years the coupons are becoming less and less appealing overall too???

Guardians is a great film (1st was better) but if the first two Thor's didn't crack jokes, you don't expect the third one to in the whole movie. They try too hard with the jokes. It's almost forced. I'm more into the dry British humour. I will never watch Airplane or the Police Academy movies which my dad loves. :rolleyes:

I would say the "best" scene out of the start and the end (ie...the Jeff Goldblum part) was Thor's 2 second shirtless scene. And that's not saying much.
We're complete opposites then.

I hate British style comedies (Infact, loathe series like little Britain) while loving Airplane and Police Academy.

Thanks for asking.
It is as healed as it is going to get.
I could not sketch properly at my drafting table at work with the thing the doc gave me, so I just basically quit wearing it, so it stayed crooked when it healed.
As I posted earlier, I can still play my guitar and it isn't giving me any other problems, so it is just going to have to stay that way.
I'm happy you're not in pain but the mom in me says do one more follow up just in case.
