Someone once said that all good things come to an end. I guess that says a lot about this blog because it’s not stopping anytime soon. A wife who doesn’t like Disney, living about 1200 miles away, and a total lack of support hasn’t been able to stop me yet.
What stood out in posts 201 to 300?
The “CMDTA on Vacation” series is one that really stood out. That poor excuse for a vacation showed me the difference between a good cruise line and a cruise line that shouldn’t still be in business.
I covered the passing of Roy E. Disney and did a somber Year in Review.
Post #215 “Awful Weather Predicted for the First Week in March” turned out so true it scares me. I predicted the weather almost spot on, months before it happened.
I once again made fun of WDW Today personality and the Unofficial Guide co-author Len Testa. Len is always good for a fun story.
The Photo of the Week series really got going.
I uncovered another conspiracy in my “Tentfest Revenge” post.
I had a field day with the line up for Eat to the Beat.
Instead of handing out my typical “Thank You” to everyone I thought it would be more fitting to hand out apologies. I’d like to unofficially apologize to the following people for abusing them:
Taylor Dane – I know you’re not dead now.
Hanson – I’m sure some people are still entertained by you.
Kool and the Gang – 70 million people can’t be wrong…I hope.
Len “Everyone’s Favorite Alien” Testa – You don’t hate Donald Duck…I think.
Matt “Mattie Cakes” Hoochberg – For having to read all those emails I send in.
The old guy with the bad comb-over who liked to fart on his balcony during my vacation – Maybe you have colitis or something.
The cast of “It’s a Small World”- I bet you don’t like the ride either
Rick Springfield – Wait I bet you liked what I said.
Sister Hazel – You’re still making money.
Boys 2 Men – It could be worse.
The ugly guy in La Nouba – I know you don’t like being ugly
Air Supply – Over 30 years and still going.
The grumpy bus drivers in Walt Disney World – I’m sure you have a reason to be grumpy.
38 Special – Some people like mullets.
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy - There are a few people who still listen to swing music.
Sugar Ray – With enough makeup I bet you’re still passable.
Night Ranger – I hear “Sister Christian” still gets played in karaoke bars everywhere.
The cast of “The Tiki Room under New Management” – Your ride isn’t awful, it’s just really bad.
Payton Manning – Actually no. I don’t like you or your brother and I have a t-shirt to prove it.
Colts Fans – Because you are Colts fans.
Everyone who likes Disney World and stumbled on this blog - Sorry
Like usual here is my list of the last 100 posts.
