Happy 4th of July, everyone! This is the first year in a long while that my pals haven't organized any kind of get-together, but my pal Ernesto and I will still be hanging out eating BBQ and watching TV. Needless to say, I've had a fantastic weekend so far, and it's not over yet, since I have the day off tomorrow (thanks, boss!). So far I've spent plenty of time relaxing with books and DVDs, but I've also been productive - I hung another section of PEZ shelves for my growing collection, plus some really huge Disney artwork that I had framed recently. I now have a New Orleans Square wall in my loft, with prints from the Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean, plus the awesome Pirates plaque (shown here) that I won on eBay! I also decided to go to Greenhouse Mall, where I bought my patio furniture over five years ago, just on the off-chance they might have a lounge to go with it. I couldn't believe it, but they did, and it was on sale! So, now I have a fancy iron lounge chair in my backyard so I can get some sun in style - I've used it the past few days, of course!
More Walt Disney World planning news: I'm so excited there will be a showing of SpectroMagic, the fantastic fiber-optic parade in the Magic Kingdom, while I'm there! I didn't think there would be, so I had to switch around some of my days on my itinerary to fit it in, and change some reservations, too, but now it's all set! I also decided to ask Disney reservations about a AAA discount, and now I'm saving $300 bucks on our room at the Grand Floridian. So cool!
