    I'm glad you've stuck around to keep reading! :hug:

    Those are TOUGH pathways to put to memory! I struggled with them in A&P a ton, but faked my way through it enough to pass. Krebs was not a fun one. :(

    The Contest is meant to be fun- I hope this chapter's questions are a bit easier. :)

    Got it!

    WOW! I haven't heard "wireless" in quite a while! LOL!

    And what IS it with the AC on the buses?! :scared1: WAYYYY too cold! Even if it's hot out, in 30 seconds you're freezing!

    I like that answer! Cozy jammies are always a hit in my house.

    You haven't opened them?!

    I just got the kids a much needed PC too. Been running on a broken laptop for WAY too long.

    You seem very....resolved. ;)

    Nothing can be better! I"m glad I could offer some delicious looking diversions while you're laid up. How are you doing, Donna? Off the pain meds yet? When is your follow up appt? You should be healed by March, I'd think! Maybe some lingering stiffness, but even if you don't have the cast off, you should be able to travel. And for the record, I need some sunshine and yumminess too.

    Indeed. I think I went from 11:00- around 7?? Didn't stick around for Illuminations (don't even know if there was one) but I rarely do for that. Not my fave.


    The pancake isn't something I'd do again. Meh.

    It's WAY out of the way, and unless beer's your thang, I can see NOT going to that stop again. Or at all. But, it's a pretty handy bathroom that's usually not crowded.

    I like 3 bean salad, so the beans in there were just fine.

    There definitely was a lot going on.

    And yes, I would do that one again.

    There was no way! WAY too much.

    I'm not sure I'd WANT to do everything. There were a ton of things that didn't even sound appealing. But there was enough stuff on the list that yes, it could easily take a week.

    That was a tough one, I know!

    Dang it! And I as well only noticed that dog on one of my last few trips.

    No pin. I'll take your answer of 12. Sampler one item.

    This does not surprise me in the least! LOL!


    Good line of reasoning there!

    This was new to me, and I'm going to go on a little mission soon to make some Disney items to keep myself busy while I wait for my next trip.

    I'll come back to this later...

    Awww.... someone really loves her coffee.
    I'm thinking this is one of those things in life that you just can't do without.

    You go, glutton.... er... girl!

    ::yes:: That would build up an appetite.

    Holy crap. :faint:

    Pretty pic of you! :)

    I've read the rest... was that thing smoking by the end??


    Better watch out for an old famer named MacDonald.

    I remember that. Still surprised that you did it.

    At first, when I read that, I was like "There's no way. Those teenagers can pack it away."

    You proved me wrong.

    Eat all the food!

    Hmmm... I might give that one a miss. I typically don't care for really hot foods. If it's a little spicy, that's okay. But I like to taste my food, not be running around in panic looking for someplace to stick my head in water.

    Then again... those do look good...

    Oh, no! And you just started! Did you get blisters?

    Have you tried it? Ever?

    Uh, oh. That does not bode well for the African portion of the trip.

    Well, I didn't know that... but this is crucial information to know for future reference.

    This is actually not that big a deal.
    "See your mother."

    See? Problem solved.


    Nope. No flames here. I agree with you.

    But... since you asked...



    Oh, that's too bad.

    Um.... I thought you said beer was disgusting?

    Greece kiosk, yes.
    Grease kiosk, no.

    Unless it involves singing and dancing from the late 50s.

    You get to try a lot of different things for not as much money (comparatively).
    The portions are smaller, so you're not full after just one.

    None of that appeals to me.
    Yet, I'd try all of it.

    Ooohhh... mystery meat dolmates.

    Wait... didn't we just have the whole Spam thing conversation?

    Of course. That trough ain't gonna be full all the time!

    Oh! I can help you out, there!
    They were in Epcot.

    You're welcome.

    Thank goodness you said that!
    We were having this huge argument around the table the other day.
    "I say she has 5 blooms!"
    "No! You're an idiot! It's 7!"
    "You're both stupid! It's obviously 4!"

    Food got thrown. Insults hurled.

    It was not a pretty sight.

    I read on another TR that it was located near the front of the park. Too bad you missed it.

    So... coming back to the "watermark" on the photos. There isn't one on this, so I can only assume it's a selfie.

    Whatever do you mean, Liesa?

    Nope. I don't think I'd like that one. Not a bean fan, don't care for walnuts and beets are hit and miss.


    That was really interesting.
    The more I looked at it, the more I saw.

    Can't figure out what that is between the koala and the butterfly near the bottom.
    A dingo?


    I remember when that commercial came out.
    And all the Aussies were saying "We'd never say that. We'd say "prawn"."

    ::yes:: Yum!

    :laughing: Yeah! Pipe down! You're getting more whether you like it or not!

    Thanks for that list you sent me for Kay.
    That is not a 9.

    Um.... no. Not a potato pancake fan. Smoked salmon is okay, but I won't go out of my way for it.

    Yes! Agreed!
    I'd try even those items that I said I probably wouldn't like.
    Because that's the fun of it, isn't it?
    That whole "probably" thing. For all I know, the one thing that I'm sure I wouldn't like would be the hit of the day!

    Nope. Sorry.
    If you mean from 2 years ago... in 2016... then yes.


    Holy crap that looks good!
    Wait! I had that! (also in 2016) It was good!


    And.... Sure! I'll sing you a bagpipe tune.

    Screeeee!!! Screeeeeeeeee! Screeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ("stop squeezing the cat!!")



    Huh! Cool!
    I love that you can actually do that.
    How cool would that job be???

    That's great! I like that he's not bored or jaded with it.
    "It's just another job."
    Er... no, it's not.


    I rarely interact with others. Too busy moving fast. But... that is a cool story.

    Yep. You've had quite a bit. No way you could eat mo...




    And... yes.

    Solid basis for economic prosperity.

    mmmm... that all sounds really good!

    then again.... maybe not.

    I would think that. How could you eat that much!?!?

    Interestingly enough, I don't like shopping, but I do like it in WS.
    Maybe because it isn't all women's clothing.

    :goodvibes That's a great shot! And grabbing two forks? :lmao:
    Nicely done!

    So which one was it?

    Until the next kiosk!!!!!!


    Thanks for that! I just might try it. :)

    Too bad. That Kahlua Pork was my favourite thing.

    Good to know.

    Oh, sure. Now you tell me!

    Well... that's good.

    What???? How could you not????

    Wait..... <re-reads the copious amount of food she stuffed in her face.>


    I think I did two days. I think. But I do know that I barely scratched the surface.

    Woot! I'm in first!

    Hmmm.... this is a tough question.
    Some of your items that you bought had multiple items.
    You bought 12 items,
    but you ate/drank 14 items.


    Gonna say your gall bladder took it easy on you.
    So, no.
    At least, I hope not.

    Didn't know that web site, but do know that recipes are out there.

    And.... I'd go with the Boma Soup.

    Oooh strange! That's not what I would have expected at all without a warning.

    Mmmmmm Greece kiosk! Nom! My mom married a Greek gentleman, and his parents have just come to stay with them for a few months to get to know their new great-grandbaby, and his mother does a lot of cooking...they're all preparing themselves to gain about 20 pounds this winter. :thumbsup2

    Neat!! I like this!

    Wow, this looks amazing!!

    How cool! This is also my dream job!! (Well, my second dream job, after being friends with Fantastmic Mickey. But I'd also settle for Jungle Skipper though. I'm flexible.) It's so interesting to see who you can meet at Disney. Everyone's got a story :goodvibes

    This is the problem! Too much food, too little tummy...

    Oh my gosh! :lovestruc

    Last night was the first night without my one Tramacet tablet - should be able to make do with regular Tylenol from now on. I suspect the pulled muscles are now at least 50% of the pain issues - quite the odd pattern of rainbow bruises, but I'm more optimistic now. Hoping the follow up x-rays in 2 weeks will show good bone healing, then the dreaded physio starts. But I have purchased my motivational reward jewellery to keep me focused :crazy:

    You are absolutely right! :)

    Snort, snort.

    I walked a minimum of 1.2 miles. That's only around WS. Added the FW part and yes... I built up an appetite.

    Only slightly more than when I did my Shop Around the World. ;)

    Is he growing something questionable? Is his pork of low quality?

    Easy peasy. :)

    I think I surprised myself too!

    Very well done!

    Oh no, this one was only mildly spicy. Most food in Disney is 'dumbed down' to suit more palates. (Sadly)

    The last time I got blisters was on my solo trip in 2010. Well, ok, I think I got a very small one in 2016, but it was no big deal.

    Yep. Not a fan!

    No, it was not a good ending in that dept.

    It very well might be!

    You think of everything!

    Where do you come up with this stuff?!

    It is, that's why I said "I suppose".


    I wish the world had more adventurous eaters. I mean everything's worth a try. :confused3

    Yes, we did. But Spam's not that mysterious. Pork and a ton of salt...?

    You're sooooo helpful! Do you have a tip jar?

    see?! I knew there'd be curiosity out there!

    Poop. Ah well... I"m beginning to foment a small plan... something having to do with.... next year.

    Yes, you'd be correct.

    Ummm.... we've had this conversation before about Disney and the need to eat intentionally for prevention

    awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.... :love: I neeeeeeeeeed one!

    I can't make it out for sure either but that's as good a guess as any.

    ^ LOL!

    I remember that too! Still was funny!

    You're very welcome! I hope all of that is useful. :)

    Mmm, I love potato pancakes when they're fresh and soft.

    It is! Sometimes we get surprised and that's super fun!

    OH fine. ;)

    I loved it. I am NOT normally a dessert girl, but this was really nice.

    Make it stop!!!!


    (Not quite as cool as being a nurse in the First Aid Stations, but pretty cool.)

    No, it's certainly NOT.

    And now this begs the question: What would your Disney Dream job be?

    Slow down!!!!!!

    I'd think so.

    Remember, I did throw some out. :)

    Me too! I am NOT a clothes hound, and purses and other stuff like that just doesn't float my boat. But I do love the specialty shops of WS (with the exception of 2- but that's for a later update) and browsing in them.

    Hehe! Sometimes accidents work out. ;)


    I remember you had that with a DISMeet group. :)

    I did get some this trip. Just not that day.

    Why yes you are! But not by much.

    You're welcome!

    See?! I"m not the only one! It was just... odd.

    I just saw on your thread about the Greek guy who kept ooohing and ahhhing. LOL!!! Fun!

    The more I looked, the more I found. ;)

    I should just throw it out there about dream jobs at Disney. I'd bet we'd get a lot of variety. :)


    So stinking cute!

    You're making progress! Good for you!! Eat lots of high protein foods and it'll help too. And I think you're right. Soft tissue injuries often take even longer to heal than bone. I'll be interested to know what the f/u xrays show too. Ah yes, the Physical Torture. And look at you- already rewarding yourself. LOL!!

    And then tore that sucker down!


    E I E I don't know.

    For you maybe!

    This is true!
    Yay for me!

    It's like Disney 101.
    Glad after you got your socks knocked off you had the sense to put them back on.


    It's a Dad thing.

    Some from Google. Some from a source I have. Some I've built. (Not that one, though.)

    I suppose.

    I don't!

    Keeps the lines shorter for the "interesting" stuff.

    It's the "other" that worries me.
    "Harry! A rat just fell in the vat!" (I feel Like Dr. Seuss.)
    "No worries! We'll just say it's "other"."

    Well, I jarred my shin pretty darn good this morning...
    Pro tip. Don't do that.
    Blood's dry now, though.

    Oh! Good for you! :)


    Sure! You've already got goats.
    Might as well, fill in the rest of the barn.

    An early example of "going viral".


    Maybe I should rethink this.
    The only time I've had potato pancakes is when my Dad made them.

    My Dad can't cook.

    Agreed. I might never have tried those sliders, except I'd heard they were good. And they were!

    Not a bagpipe fan?
    Or not a fan of me squealing?

    Ah! Yes, that would be perfect for you!

    Oh, geez. TBH, I've never really thought about it.
    I guess... it would be something where I could bring happiness to others, especially children.
    I've done that a couple times already at Disney where I've been asked to represent them and "on stage" and I really enjoyed it.

    Oh! Sorry. I'll re do that more slowly.

    Did that help?


    I know one of them.
    I really should get that job. Bringing decent items to the Canada gift shop.

    Geez.... just off the top of my head Sucre a la Crème from Quebec. Ice wine from the Niagara region. Wine from BC. Beaver tails. (People would stop eating cronuts, though. hmm... not really a gift shop item, but still.) Inuit soap stone carvings. Ketchup chips. Canadian chocolate bars, or Laura Secord. Maple syrup for God's sakes! Hudson Bay blankets, mitts, tuques, mugs, etc. Tim Hortons coffee...

    Oh! I thought you did that on purpose.
    Still funny, though. :)

    The one that made you laugh, of course.

    Actually had it twice!
    But yes, that was one of them. :)

    Of course you did!

    The contest is yet young. :)

    Depends on whether you consider sampler 1 or 3 items. You bought 1 sampler, but it was three items. So, I would say the number of items on the menu purchases was 12. The number of different items was 14.

    Yes. My thought is you stopped by GS and they either had them or pointed you to the right place.

    Well duh, after all of that, yes.


    Initially, I thought a because you didn't get it at F&W and talking about it made you crave it, BUT...I don't think you'd be able to do M&C in an instant pot because you'd have to cook & drain the macaroni first. Soups & stews seem more likely to me, so hopefully I didn't over think it.

    What I wouldn’t give for some 50-65 deg weather! Today it’s 10. Which compared to New Years weekend with highs around -5, is downright toasty, no, that’s a lie, it’s still stupid-cold. It did get up to 51 Thursday around noon, everything melted, then the temps dropped from 51 to 24 on my 45 minute drive home and it all froze up.
    I do not belong here. I don’t know why my ancestors thought this was a good idea (ok they were farmers, and this is good farming country, but why couldn’t they have farmed orange trees??) :cold::cold:

    Playing catch up on the DIS as usual....loving reading about all that foooood!!

    That does sound a little...odd....they definitely should have included something about cornmeal in the description...

    I'm so sorry to hear looked good in the pic!!

    Rice cream though...I'm intrigued...does it have fruit on top or something? What is that?

    3. I counted 12?

    4. found your pin (I hope!) usually I find them at the little open air shops on in the stretch between FW an WS

    5. Ill? No. Uncomfortable? Probably

    6. My first thought is loaded Mac n cheese but that doesn’t sound like an insta pot thing so I’ll go with Bangers and Booz

    If the items you tried, the only ones I had this past trip were the Irish bread and cheese sauce & the Scottish dessert. I didnt care for the cheese either, I seem to recall it tasting gritty. But the Tipsy Laird...that was as good!

    Well someone's got to do the hard work around here!

    Okay, that was funny!

    At least I had them! (and they weren't still between ME and my room.)

    They can pack cars AND remember everything.

    You have BUILT them?!


    ....for folks like me!

    I need a vomit emoji stat!

    Oh, the old "try and walk in the dark" trick. I know that one!

    No, that little piggy would go to the market with me.

    They HAVE to be fresh and done just right.

    I'm thinking I need another F&W Walk-about.

    I like a well-timed/placed bagpipe.

    So, maybe a diver at The Seas? I can see you doing that!



    I have a Tale of Mockery coming up....
    Your ideas are lightyears ahead of the current state of affairs there.

    Brrrr! I lived in that (and worse) in Crapistan for too long. Yes, pineapples and coconuts seem like pretty nice crops to me!


    It doesn't surprise me that there was so little crossover with our items. There are literally hundreds to choose from and it'd be a tough go to get to even a small number of them.

    I seem to be playing catch up here more often than not as well these days.

    I would have certainly thought so!

    It is a rice that is cooked in milk like a pudding but there is whipped cream folded in to make a very light dessert, then a strawberry compote of put on top. I eat it stirred in, but you don't have to. I just love it!
