Uhhh...You did not seriously think...
That just because I haven't posted a real MiceChat meet Trip Report in almost a year...
That'd you'd be able to get by without seeing MiceChat's 4th anniversary through my eyes, did you?
First - the big bash, Friday night.
I was not there. Real party animal, I am.
That was fast enough.
On to Saturday...
I made a leisurely drive down from Northwest Ventura County, getting into Howard J's at about 11AM.
I loved the room...and I loved the fact that I wasn't far from seeing this -
HoJo's and CalTrans, making this Angel and MiceChat fanatic feel right at home!
So after I got checked in, settled and all that, I made a mad dash (OK, a slow walk) to the DLR entrance plaza.
I must admit that I had to fight every instinct in me, that kept telling me to head to the park on my right.
But I knew that if I wanted to meet my fellow MiceChatters, I had to go to...that other place, first.
Well, I'm all for new things. Funny how I was instantly reminded of my youth...and my days as a thespian at Garden Grove HS...
Now, since I had entered the "dark side" of the entrance plaza, I had a feeling that this meet might be about trying to "score points" with the higher-ups, and "shoot down" anything that got in your way...
Geez, I thought, this "dark side" is even darker than I thought.
But I left "Paradise" in search of my dreams of Hollywood. And as I approached, a lovely lady beckoned me with a siren's song, saying "come toward the light"...
Okay, okay, so she didn't sing a siren's song and all that, but there definitely is "something about Mary..."
And Jody, too for that matter.
A remarkable woman, that one. Ever notice how many lovely, remarkable ladies we have here at MiceChat? Have ya, huh?
The good news is....they ARE California Girls!
And Good old Circarama Charlie is no narcis...no narccisssisss...no narcissitist...oh heck, he doesn't think it's all about HIM.....
Nope, not at all!
That was at the noon meet. At the end we gathered for a picture, you've seen how some guy in a blue costume jumped out at us, then we took a group pic, headed off for lunch, yada yada yada (Disney 1978 - I had one of those California wrap things and I liked it too).
