Greetings to all the bannished and those that behaved themselves. Stink, good to hear from you again, I hope you won't turn this lounge into another one of your knitting circles. Now if Mad Madame Mim and Mandrake Linux would show up, that would be something.
Oh, and by the way, I generally disdain anything new. For instance SNL post about 1980, but Tui in all the chat rooms and all the avatars I've ever seen, that is by far the greatest.
Hi I'm Mel and it's great to see these boards up. I've been reading Miceage for quite some time now and love telling my husband (who patiently listens even though he doesn't care all that much) all the updates that Al and Kevin post. I'm a bit of a Disney nut, I've been to DL four times - that's where my husband proposed - WDW three times and DLP once. Tokyo is on the list, but we'll probably go back to DL and WDW first. They're all too bloody far away from Sydney though....
Hi everyone... this seemed like a good place to make my first post! I'm Penguinsoda, or Ping for short or sometimes Mamma Ping. The first time I went to Disneyland was in 1973, when I was visiting relatives in So. Cal. Now I live in the So Cal desert and have been to Disneyland many times. I raised a Disneynut daughter, who as soon as she turned 18 ran off (well not exactly ran off but...) and got a job at Disneyland. She worked Indie most of the time, but also worked the Columbia and the Twain. Even thought she no longer works there, she still calls the Twain "her boat" and will always have a special place in her heart for the place. Looking forward to peeking in every so often as time and computer mood allows.
I've grown up around DL my whoe life, starting out as one of many who made the annual pilgrimage from NorCal, to an AP holder when I moved to SoCal for college, to finally a CM in 2000 (wow! 5 years ago). I left only because of the lack of pay, which I'm sure you other CMs understand.
Now I'm in the Air Force, living in Newport News, Virginia, wishing I was a free civilian, living back in wonderful southern California, and around DL.
To Al Lutz, thank you SO much for your articles which provide the only thing I have to look forward to while in Virginia, besides my next trip back to Cali.
To everyone else, be smart, stay away from the military, enjoy your freedom, enjoy good California weather, and most of all, enjoy Disneyland!
Contrary to what my nic is, I'm not of polish heritage. My years of working in the bars should give a bit of a clue as to how I received the nic.
I live in the Antelope Valley which is known mainly for it's work in the aerospace industry. All of the fancy high tech airplanes you see flying around were built here. Space Ship One was built and flown here as well. That's about our only claim to fame. If you want to see the area without traveling here just watch any movie that has a desert scene with joshua trees in the background and that would be us. Ok, that's our second claim to fame. And no, we're not desert nomads as the news would like to portray us.
I've been reading Al's column's since MP and have been a fan ever since. I am a fan of Disney and Theme/Amusement parks in general. I don't post very much but if the mood strikes me and I have something to say I will.
I've been reading MiceAge, to plan my trips, and I frequently visit the site for all the latest park news, so my sisters and I can nerd out with all of our Disneyland info. I figured I should join this board since i'm already addicted to the Visions Fantastic.com board.
So anyways, hi to all of you stricken with the Disneyland Syndrome, you sound like an awesome bunch of people!
An aging hipster lookin for a little fun. Got a little bd and a beautiful ragdoll (sorry ladies) at home and we love to get up to Mickey's every now and then. Glad to find that Al has finally given all of his minions a place to gather.
Hello, this is Mouseketeer_2. I usually go by Mouseketeer on other boards, but at this one it was already taken, so hence my new screen name. I often take long hiatus from Disney related things because I can get burned-out easily. However, I've got the Disney itch right now. Its great to see so many old faces from Mouseplanet here. I know we'll all have a great time.
