I normally don't do blogs, but I was very angry and hurt by some of the things a friend wrote about ME in HIS live journal so I would like to put it into prospective in my words. First of all do not bother to tell me I spelled things wrong. I don't care, and secondly I am not interested enough to have a live journal so here goes.


Him:
There was a lot of hurrying up to just have to come to a complete dead stop on this trip for smoking and bathroom breaks. AGAIN: NEVER AGAIN. When we all are on property, I won't have to worry about splitting up the group to do what we want. I'm not going to be forced to be tied down to the "group mind" by one person). The funny thing is, I've travelled with the girls before and don't remember them being this way before. I don't want to blame their (well, to be honest, her), bad attitude on their menstrual cycle (though they were both getting it).
Me:
I wish I had the money to stay on property. As it is I am in debt for this trip and the room was free. Maybe one day I can afford it, but for now a 10-15 minute drive to the parks is ok with me. We were told about 2,000 times how when he and his partner come to Disney he leaves his partner at home and does his own thing. Too bad he didn't do the same this time. I am a smoker. Taboo in todays society, but it's something I do. In my defense I did my best to smoke when others were doing something else. If someone was standing in line for a drink, or decided to go into a store, I tried to find the closest place possible as to not put the others out. In 5 days I smoked 2 and 1/2 packs whick is approx. 50 cigarettes. That would break down to about 10 a day and that included our walks to and from the car. My so called bad attitude was due more to a HIS inability to vary from his plan by an inch. If he wanted to do something it had to be done *NOW!* Never mind there are 3 other people who like to trade pins, see characters and have the need to pee. God forbid we didn't have the same agenda all day every day. We'd hear about it for about 20 minutes and at least 20 more times.
Him:
After many quick stops to get our picture taken in front of the castle and to pin trade with the cast members (which I'll admit turned out to be a blast most of the time), we FINALLY get to our first ride (the TTA - Tomorrowland Transit Authority) at 12:50pm. Are you kidding me? .... I would have had most of Tomorrowland done by then.
Me:
We didn't get off the plane and drop our stuff off until about 11:30. If I could have apparated to the park I would have.
Him:
We hop onto Carousel of Progress and the girls say they don't remember it. Kim grumbles 'cause it "trys to teach you stuff".
Me:
Actually the "trys to teach you stuff" is from the Simpsons and it's something I always say to be funny. Apparently I am not as funny as I thought I was.....
Him:
The pizza wasn't bad but it wasn't great.
Me:
Second worst pizza EVER
Him:
I would have preferred a seat in the middle, but it was already fairly crowded (and Kim was grumbling earlier when I was saying that it would be time to get in soon). I ate my caramel apple while waiting for the show. Kim grumbled about the pre-show and the pre-show wait time. She should have just stayed out and shopped or whatever else she expected to do at that point since the rest of the park (with the exception of the stores) had closed.
Me:
True, I would have preferred not to go at all as I've seen it and it doesn't ever change. The pre-show is down right painful and I hate sitting and waiting for something. I'd rather be doing other stuff like pin trading or shopping instead of sitting and waiting. My Dad likes to arrive early to things too and when we see movies we are there about an hour early. My problem is I am not very comfortable around people I don't know. Since it was raining all day I knew we would get to see the show. If it was that important for him to sit in the middle he could have gone himself and gotten a seat. I think he is used to being very independent. Too bad he didn't choose to be that way instead of constantly bitching about how much of a pain in the ass I am.
Him:
After the show, I was saying that I wished that they'd update the show. Pocahontas, as a historical figure, doesn't really belong in the show with not only fictional but primarily magical-based characters. She was only there because that happened to be the movie that was coming out at the time. Her sequence could easily be replaced any number of magical-based characters who were still primarily action based characters. Heck, if they wanted to keep the Native American theme, they could even use Brother Bear (though I think that Hercules would work best in that section of the show)...of course, Kim had to chime in with "most people don't know that Pocahontas is real and think of her only as a Disney character"...I sure hope not!
Me:
I am not as stupid as he would like to think. I never said that "most people don't know that Pocahontas is real and think of her only as a Disney character". What I did say was "I don't think most people who are watching care that Pocahontas is historical and doesn't belong in the show, they just see her as a Disney character IN the show." I for one could give a rat's ass who does and does not think Pocahontas is real, but to quote me as saying something that I did not say pisses me the fuck off! I don't know why he can't just watch and enjoy and not have to analyze everything to death!!!!
Him:
Kim with Chicken Little (which Kim was obsessed with...never mind that Shawn swore he took a shot of that with Kim's disposable).
Me:
Thank God we saw Chicken on the last day! Shawn owes me a Coke. I got the disposables developed. There is only a picture from the first day with Dawn and Chicken. None of me and Chicken. I'll show you the negatives if you want proof.
Him:
Shawn and I got onto Mission:Space (Kim wouldn't ride it, 'cause she's claustrophobic)
Me:
Hey this one is true. I am claustrophobic! How come it sounds like a dig when he writes it though? Did his live journal friends really need to know that or did he just want to point out what a pain in the ass I am?
Him:
When we got France, both of us boys were full and done with the drinking and were starting to get pretty much our fill of the girls (well, Kim, who now drunk was getting surly)
Me:
I'm always surly! Truth is I'm more easy going when I'm drunk, he just wanted to pick on me a little more in his journal, which is pretty much the way the whole trip went. If I say right he said left. I couldn't win with him. I doubt he noticed since he does all the talking anyway, but I didn't talk to him for an entire day since I knew the second I opened my mouth he would be right there to contradict me.
Him:
We discovered that Chicken Little would not be there that day so we would have to try again tomorrow sometime after noon to see if he was in the rotation if Kim was ever going to be able to assure herself of getting that picture!
Me:
Good thing we did as if you read above, Shawn was mistaken. Oh-notice the ! I don't believe that sentence warranted one.
Him:
Now it was going to be time to start finding something to eat. We said we'd want to finally do the Rose and Crown pub, but Kim was now vetoing fish and chips and she said there was nothing else there she would eat. "Well, what do you want to eat?" we asked. She had no answer. We continued around the lagoon to Morocco. Same story there. Nothing for Kim meant nothing for the rest of us...and she balked at the idea of a sit-down, too. We ended up in Italy and looked at the sit down menu there. That's when *I* had to balk at the menu. There was nothing there but Fettucine Alfredo (yuck) or stuff served with rosemary (double yuck!) or it was something fairly plain that you could get at an Olive Garden 'cept really overpriced. I'll probably never eat there, even on the dining plan.
Me:
He conveniently forgot the part about me getting bad belly from our lunch. I had already gone through a 1/2 pack of tums at this point and fried fish and chips would not have been the smartest move.
As far as balking at the sit down idea, HE already made the comment something like 30 times that he did not want to do a sit down because we did a sit down lunch and he never does 2 sit downs in one day at the park. Golly, he only eats once a day at home. We were told that 145,468,784 times too! (notice !-here it is warranted)
I would have loved to have the fish and chips. I feel a little cheated by not getting them but I knew I would have barfed if I did it. As far as Morocco went, the choices were lamb and chicken. I eat neither. I told them to eat where they wanted and I would just get another pastry in Norway. I don't know why everyone, especially HIM, decided we had to stick together every second of every day. I remember saying at least twice that I would do whatever the 3 of them wanted and if I did not want to eat where they choose I would meet them later. Funny how *those* "balkings" never make it into his journal. Maybe if I would have said it 2,000 times like he tends to, he would have remembered it.
Him:
By this point, we were all hungry. Shawn and Dawn were talking about the turkey leg and I wasn't sure about it, but knew there was other stuff over by where that was. I ended up getting a foot long dog with chili and cheese and it seemed like a different brand than the awful Casey's corner one (but maybe it was just better with all the crap on it). Kim grumbled at first that there wasn't anything for her, but got a foot long as well. I'm glad I chose the dog instead of the leg, 'cause they both said it was pretty greasy. Also, the meat was very red once they got into it.
Me:
In this case I am wrongly accused of balking. All I wanted was a hot dog, which is what I got. I don't even know what the fuck he's bitching about here. I also took this opportunity to smoke one of my 50 cigarettes as there was a smoking section right by the place. Everyone was still eating when I got back, but I'm sure he bitched about that one too.
Him:
Kim said she would navigate and a few times panicked that we were going the wrong way.
Me:
Never happened. I said I would navigate and once we found the first sign with the big airplane on it we were home free. I never once panicked. He must have been really bitchy this day.
Him:
Kim immediately sat down just outside the building to smoke, again causing Shawn and I to have to stop, wrecking our forward momentum. When we got up to the baggage claim, the girls made us wait 'cause they wanted to shop first. I had my own boarding pass so I headed on without them (Shawn had to ask Kim for his, 'cause for some reason theirs were all stapled together and mine was handed to me separately).
Me:
Sure did! Had to have the last one for the next 4 hours or so. Smoke 'em if you got 'em. Once again, I don't know what the big deal was here. Why would you rush off to sit in the waiting area for 2 hours when there is a whole mall in the Orlando airport? We had PLENTY of time and would be sitting in the plane for 2 hours. Always in a rush that one is. (My very bad Yoda impression)
Him:
I told Paul that it was likely that we'd just go with Shawn and Dawn next time in May and leave Kim home, since she was the one who was most disagreeable this time. It would have helped if Dawn wasn't her enabler and they weren't so codependent. Of course, when we are the ones providing the accomodations AND we are staying on property which makes it easier to split up, she may be different. I'm not sure I want to take the chance on ruining another Disney trip. I'd also like to return the favor of the LAST time we went and bring Jim and Linette and I know that Linette no longer wants to travel with Kim for much the same reason(s), so perhaps the three couples would have fun together?
Me:
This cracked me the fuck up so bad I'm still teary eyed from laughing so hard. I couldn't help but wonder how much MORE fun I would have without constantly being hassled. I for one had a great time but it would have been so much better without all his complaining, or should I say "balking". It's funny how we only see one side of the story. As for Lin's alleged comment, we have been many places together and always get along well. Since the last Disney trip we all went on with HIM, Lin and I have been to Disney 2 other times without him as well as Hershey Park and a couple NYC overnighters. I think she just agreed with him to shut him up since all he ever does is complain.
As far as my sister being an "enabler", that's a load of crap. She just understands me the best and tries to let others see me the way she does. All she wants is for everyone to get along.
Sure there are times when everyone gets on everyone else's nerves, but that's just how life it. Someone needs to loosen up a little and learn how to relax. Also, it's only fair to remember different people have diffent needs, wants and opinions. We do not all agree on anything or the world would be a more perfect place.

I feel so much better now. Oh and next time HE feels the need to bitch about me on the internet I'll make sure to keep you all updated. This has really been fun and I feel so much better now.

Peace out
