Yeah, it's Friday! I can bitch and moan about my bathroom remodel and my upcoming wedding (And yes, I LOVE Lisa, but she claims she is not Bridezilla... I tend to disagree). Thank goodness she doesn't read this column.
So since I can claim that the paint fumes are making me crazy, here is the latest....
Sorry Allie, couldn't resist this shot!

LOTS of Red Shirts in the park this weekend
So we have the Anaheim Angels going to the playoffs (OK, I should mention that the team is officially called the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim) and that will bring out a lot of red shirts... but it is also the first weekend of October, which means that it is the "unofficial" Gay Days Weekend at Disneyland.
MiceChat will host a special Saturday Noon Meet at the Hub, and of course, the regular Noon Meet at the Hub on Sunday.
Here is the link to the Gay Days Anaheim schedule.
And FYI, there is also a major convention in Anaheim this weekend.
Want to rent a stroller? We will be happy to charge you $15 for a day!
This week, Disneyland raised its rental prices for Strollers and ECV's.
Here is the breakdown.
Strollers are $15 (no deposit required), 2 strollers can be rented for $25.
Manual Wheelchairs are still $12 ($32 at the register, but $20 is returned when you return it).
ECV's are now $50 ($70 with a $20 deposit returned at the end of the day).
The Walt Disney Musuem officially opens in San Francisco
"I have to remind myself it's not Disneyland," said Wayne Haldorson, 48, who like his wife was wearing a Mickey Mouse baseball jersey top. "It's a museum."
The Haldorsons' 19-year-old daughter, Brooke Rich, agreed. "It's interesting," the teenager said, "but you have to like history."Anybody willing to pay for a round trip ticket to San Francisco?
If not, I would check out this website LATER this weekend....
Steven is going to the Museum today, and should have photos up by Saturday.
Want to win a Tinkerbell Pimped Car? Sorry, you can't!
There is a new contest at the DLR, where they have a pimped out Honda Insight EX Hybrid on display, and is offering you a chance to win a Insight. But if you read the fine print, you will get a GENERIC Honda Insight, and not the Tinkerbell version.
Six Flags Magic Mountain will once again be tied with Cedar Point with 17 Roller Coasters
Brady MacDonald from the LA Times is reporting...
Anaheim GardenWalk goes Automated
Magic Mountain’s 17th roller coaster would move the Valencia amusement park into a statistical tie with Ohio’s Cedar Point for coaster supremacy, according to Roller Coaster Database.
Magic Mountain, which snatched the crown from Cedar Point around the turn of the millennium during a building binge, relinquished the title back to the Ohio park in 2008 after removing two aging coasters.
FYI, if you park at the new Shoppertainment center, the Anaheim GardenWalk, you need to make sure and pay for parking at the self service machines as they have eliminated the staff manning the toll booths.
If you are directed to park at the AGW for Disneyland Theme Park parking, you will be handed a ticket to allow you to exit the facility when you pay or show your Parking Pass at entry.
