    9/8/07: WeWants and BellhopP attempt a felony

    ...with her mom's permission, of course!! We tried to kidnap my friend as an extremely late birthday present for her. Were we successful? Did everything go according to plan?
    All these questions--and more--will be answered...as soon as I get back to my house and start posting pictures, which will be soon hopefully.

    Until then, check out my Flickr account, which has a good 30 pictures taken yesterday on it.
    dreams. come. true.

    Re: 9/8/07: WeWants and BellhopP attempt a felony

    Oh, as if Brad doesn't know.

    SO this tr is not going to be a tr in the traditional sense. I can't call it a photo update, either, even though I classified this under 'photos.' This is just more trip documentation and photo explaination.
    But I digress.
    I arrived at my kidnapee's house at about 7:15AM and I walked into her house. I just walked right in, and there she was, on the computer, dressed already.
    "Good, you're dressed. Get clothes to sleep in and some for tomorrow, and grab maybe like your phone," I said.
    "Well, jeez, I know we're going to Disneyland, you can drop the act!" she said with mock frustration.

    Ali, having figured it out already.
    By 7:45ish we were on our way to pick up WeWants, and I was telling her all the details that were supposed to have happened that morning--such as her being walked blindfolded pretty much everywhere, and how she would have noise-cancelling headphones on until right after we got into the park and take off her blindfold. She laughed in a I-would-hate-you-so-bad-if-you-humiliated-me-that-way sort of way. At about 8:00 we picked her up and stopped at a 7-11 for some Naked juice.

    My delicious Orange-Mango motion, which is like crack except legal and bottled.

    Ali and her anime kid face drinking her Berry Blast.

    WeWants and her Strawberry thing she didn't like.
    We got to the parks and took a few pictures (none of which are up--I had to pick and choose this time, we took over 300 photos and had limited uploading time) and we got Ali and my friend Michael signed in and we were on our way. Michael left because he had a class that morning but he shall return later

    First stop was getting nametags made for myself and Ali, which I had been meaning to do for myself for a good four or five months now. After that was taken care of, we got a locker to put mine and Ali's stuff in.
    Then, off to Adventureland for a potty break and to ride the Jungle Cruise, and we had a great skipper. We were actually laughing really really hard at most of his jokes (and he was way cute!)

    We then hit Indy, which had a rather crazily short line. Let's face it, I'm not used to getting there so early and not having a lot of crowds. WeWants saw a CM there who she knew from a bunch of things, like he used to work in a store in the Brea Mall and he is the grandson of a woman who goes to her temple. He didn't recognize her though.
    We hit POTC and saw another CM we recognized, Brian, who I think I totally humilated (and if you're reading this Brian, I didn't mean to!!!) by yelling that I loved him. THEN we went on Pooh and saw ANOTHER CM we recognized, Joshua.

    Part of Ali's head and a hunny pot while were in line for Pooh.
    I must depart for now because I am getting yelled at to eat. More randomness to come very soon.
    dreams. come. true.

    Re: 9/8/07: WeWants and BellhopP attempt a felony

    Can't wait to see more BellhopPrincess!!!!
    Lucky you, you will get to see more of me because the camera was comandeered from me. Not just yet, but there are actually pictures of me in here that I didn't take!! I know what you meant, btw.


    Ali had never been on the canoes, but they weren't open yet, so we decided to go over to TSI and Pirate's Lair.

    We wandered around on the disappointment for maybe 10 minutes before we decided to leave, but we stumbled across Jack's spot and ended up bothering the CM's there for a good 20 minutes before we left.

    A rather good Jack, who stole my tiara right off my head. And it hurt, I had it stuck under a metal hairclip and it scratched my head up.

    Ali mugging for the camera she took from me.

    One she took of me

    And of WeWants

    Trying to lure Jack over with shiny objects. Here, pirate pirate pirate....
    After leaving the island, we tried to get the wheelhouse on the Mark Twain. Unfortunately, another family got to it before us (curses!!)...so instead we just hung out on the fairly vacant second floor of the boat and I took a lot of art pictures, most of which can be seen on my Flickr account (link to it in my siggy and a link in the first post if you didn't see).

    Ali and WeWants in a butt fight. I don't know either, I just take the pictures.
    So we saw upon getting off the steamboat that the line for Big Thunder was quite short, so we did that. And as per an odd tradition, I took some pictures while on the ride.

    Showing here
    We wandered through Fantasyland and got sme drinks, and we sat down near the Phantom Boat lagoon. The ducks over there are completely unafraid of humans.

    Here kitty kitty...
    WeWants went over to the toy shop in the exit to IASW to buy Ali a tiara, then we went over to Tomorrowland to catch the monorail. I didn't bother looking around Subs for anyone I knew, but we saw someone anyway--Pete, a former bellhop who I totally adore, who WeWants thinks just lives at Disneyland. He doesn't go home.

    A detail I have never noticed before.

    The view of the lagoon from the station. Really beautiful.
    So I'm snapping pictures of the lagoon and of everything else, when WeWants asked me what time my Sub friend started working that day. "He doesn't start til late, he's closing tonight," I said.
    "Well..." she started, then pointed down to the far end of the dock.
    There was my friend, working his little tail off, apparently having lied though his teeth to me once more.



    I started just snapping pictures of him like I told him I would if I saw him, and I ended up with 15 pictures of him from above. I finally called his name and he looked up, rather surprised to see me, I might add. He chatted with us for about 30 seconds before getting back to work, which somehow really ruffled my feathers even though I know it's good he's doing his job. I guess just the whole fact that he lied to me, even unintentionally as he says....though I did later get both an apology text message and an apology call that night, so I suppose I can find it in my heart to forgive him. I'd post all 15 pictures, but this message seems long enough, so I shall post more in a few--about lunch!!
    dreams. come. true.

    Re: 9/8/07: WeWants and BellhopP attempt a felony

    Brad_Chowen met up with us for our lunch reservations at Goofy's Kitchen, which was new to all of us. I didn't know it was a buffet so I was unplesantly surprised to find that the charge per person was $30. I was paying for Ali also, so that pretty much tapped me for cash for the rest of the day.

    Horray for being overpriced!! Pluto had a real tight grip on me and blew me kisses as I walked away. Still not used to the silent flirting.

    ...For PEZZ.
    Ali and WeWants got up for more goodies and I was still working on my salad plate when Aladdin came by. I asked if he would do me a favor and crown Ali (she didn't know that that was what WeWants had left to get before) because it was a belated celebration of her birthday, and he said he would help us out. He left quickly before Ali returned and returned a bit later with Jasmine, and they crowned her princess for a day. She was smiling but red faced with humiliation, and hit me after they walked away.

    Dessert time! Brad and WeWants argued over if yellow was a flavor or not.
    We discovered that our allotted hour and a half time limit was up, so we left before we were charged any more money.

    More reasons that WeWants does not deserve her license.
    We somehow ended up in the World of Disney for about an hour, with not much really happening....

    ...aside from WeWants falling asleep...

    ...and getting baboon mooned.
    We headed over to DCA because Ali wanted to, and hit Tower. I saw a few people I recognized (and annoyed WeWants by mouthing the entire preshow video narration and even adding 'bum-bum' at the appropriate part) but then we got upstairs and saw one of my favorite people in the universe--

    --Bellhop Michael!!!!!!!! I greeted him by name and responded to his confused hello by telling him I was from the 13 group in July. He had a huge moment of recognition and ended up chatting with us for a good 10 minutes. He is truly one of the nicest people I have ever met, and everyone I know from Tower that I talk to outside of the parks all rave about what a great guy he is. If I don't get into guest relations next year, I would love to get attractions and be able to work with him. I don't know where to go to fill out a compliment sheet for him, otherwise I'd probably do one for each trip I see him.
    Okay, I had to rave. Unless youv'e met him, I really don't think you'd know quite what I'm talking about
    Ali had never been on Monsters, so we took her over there and rode it twice because it was such a short line.

    ...further proof why she doesn't deserve a license. It's blue-tinted because of the light filter I had on my camera that I forgot to take off.
    We ended up in yet another store, this one in HPB and half-filled with High School Musical merchendise. Every time Ali saw a Vanessa Ann Hudgens thing she would shout about nude photos, though, which kind of ruined the Disney mood...but was still really funny.

    WeWants bowed down at the HSM shrine that had been set up. Oh St. Sharpay, patron saint of teenage primadonas, and St. Ryan, patron saint of questionable hats....
    We mosied on over to the Wheel of Utter Horror Sun Wheel, and I took documentation pictures along the way. If anyone wants me to send them, like if you're collecting shots of how PP looked before the bulldozers rolled in, feel free to ask. I'm not gonna post them here, though, there are too many of them. We had a wonderfully terrifying time involving me being parallel to the ground below, and so as a buffer from that we all went on King Triton's carousel per WeWants' request.

    Brad trying to reaffirm his manliness after riding a purple otter.
    Screamin' had a short line, so we rode that while waiting for my friend Mike to get to the resort. WeWants, Ali, and I sung Weird Al songs and Sublime songs while in line, much to the embaressment of Brad.

    More stolen pictures. Hey, I had less than $15 at this point, I was planning on eating again that night.
    I was expecting a call from Mike right after we got off, but I didn't hear a thing, so we went through the bread factory and the tortilla factory and Brad bought Ali and I a soda to share while we sat on a bench talking and peoplewatching. Soon and seemingly out of nowhere us girls got the giggles and started acting up.

    Ali comandeered my camera and Adrienne and I had an ice fight that I won by throwing the rest of the ice in the cup at her, haha. The two shots Ali took that had us rolling....


    At that point I got a call from Mike saying he was heading over to Disneyland, so we started to head over that direction. But along the way, a picture I had been wanting to take since I first saw the main hub:

    Immediately afterward, three seperate groups decided to take the same picture. They didn't even have the decency to wait til we were out of sight, they just did it....ugh. Blatant unoriginality, one of my pet peeves.

    More to come in a few.
    dreams. come. true.

    I probably would have gotten it anyway, because that's where my head goes whenever someone says "showing here."

    what a great TR. Love it when friends get together and have fun in the park
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: 9/8/07: WeWants and BellhopP attempt a felony

    No, we actually didn't do the musical chairs!!! I even said something about it to WeWants that morning ad we forgot about it. Oh well, we had a good enough time I think. Everything was thrown off because she wasn't delightfully clueless.


    Now that our group was complete, I became the Caitlin and headed over to Tomorrowland for some nerdiness on Star Tours. It was a 15 minute line, nothing we couldn't handle. Everyone was talking and taking pictures and having a grand time, and only later did I see the random shots taken by Ali and WeWants.

    I love these two to no end.
    After much messing around on the ride--and me having a nerd attack because the X-wings jump to light speed in the X formation which isn't right *twitch*--we went down into the Star Trader for more random non-shopping. Brad got a Darth Goofy. Nerd. The spinny light up toys are really odd, as you shall see....

    Wouldn't Buzz get dizzy...?

    Yes, that is my mouth and nose on the left side of the picture.
    WeWants wanted to do BLAB and I challenged Brad to a duel...

    Like I said, I love them. My two BFF's who I would probably die without.

    My lovely Michael in line for BLAB.
    I lost the duel with Brad, Ali lost to Michael, and WeWants won because she dueled herself. So I guess she lost, too.
    Neither Ali nor Michael had been on the Subs yet and the line was rather short, only to where the cattle cutes start winding around, so we had more fun in that line. Lots more talking and random activity, like Ali and I singing the Dresden Dolls rather loudly (especially some of the more racy lyrics, hehe). Ali grabbed my camera again and took some great shots

    Me

    WeWants

    One I took of her, so the three musketiaras each had one of these shots.
    I hadn't been on the subs at night, so it was a nice change. I finally saw the mermaid and the sea serpent since we were at the front of the sub!! And I found an electrical box with a Walt Disney signature on it randomly. (Brad has a picture of this, I don't.)
    I wanted to see the fireworks and threw a small fit when we ended up in Frontierland watching them...I wanted Ali and Mike to see it from a good angle, so I tossed my stuff down with them and got out my angst at the shooting gallery. The alignment on the sight was off so I missed half the shots I would have gotten with a real rifle. After two rounds, I felt a lot better about everything and joined the group again at about the end of the show. Ali was down about some personal drama (that I won't go into here for obvious reasons) so to cheer her up we went over to the Alice rides. On the way there, I saw that the skyway station lights were on!!

    I couldn't help but think of a thread from this spring where someone said it was Constance looking for a new home since she was kicked out...and here we are, the week Mansion goes down for the overlay. Hmm, I wonder....

    The teacups....Sadly I have no other pictures beyond this. We went on Alice and then it was closing, so we had to hit the road. It was a fun filled day....
    And I guess this did turn out to be a real trip report. I was feeling a bit lazy this morning after yesterday and being up at the crack of dawn, but it was all really worth it. I had a lot of fun, got to see some people I hardly ever see, and I have never laughed so hard at the parks before.
    What a great day.

    The end!!!
    dreams. come. true.

    Brad's Rebuttal: (all in playful fun)



    Who can resist the lure of Goofy Vader --Nerd you say?


    i love the Tea Cup picture very cool

    I believe my Manhood is intact even after riding on the silly seal on King Tritons. (I had to check afterward --but everything is still intact)

    Cool Pic on the way out of DCA



    and here is the Walt Disney sub label.
