photo by Scott/schlingelAutumn is officially here
, now that I’ve pulled my Bears knock-around varsity-style jacket out of the closet, where it’s been ensconced for the past six months. Here’s a picture of its (and my) backside from my ’05 trip to Japan.
Tomorrow I head out to Southern California for my nephew’s fifth birthday
. You know what a big deal your fifth birthday is! He’s getting a Star Wars-themed party this year (last year was Nemo). I thought of finding a couple of bandoliers
and going as a wookie, but I think the other parents would prefer it if I wore some clothes.
The weekend will also include a trip to Disneyland
, which I’m looking forward to, even though the cost of park admission is now approaching a C-note
. I haven’t been there in many years, so for any Disney park fans
reading this, anything relatively new that I should make sure I see/do? What did they do with the Carousel of (Nostalgic) Progress area? I also heard the Enchanted Tiki House was finally mothballed, but that didn’t take up much more space than a churro stand. I’ve done the Trip to Mars human salad spinner at Disney World a few years back, but that’s all. Have they added more attractions at California Adventure since it first opened?
