Pensive Kevin

Footsore and Tired

We got over to Disneyland before the official 10 AM opening, although the gates actually open earlier, and didn't leave until after 10 PM. What a day. My feet hurt a lot, although thanks to taping up my toes before going today, I seem to have avoided blisters.

We made a bee-line for the Blue Bayou, but they were all booked up for Monday already. We were able to obtain a lunch reservation for Tuesday afternoon, which is okay because we're using the second day of our 2-day park hopper to go to California Adventure, but there's no problem popping over the Disneyland for lunch.

We managed to ride most of the rides we wanted to ride. Lisa was particularly happy with the current incarnation of Space Mountain, which she says is much more like an improved version of the original than the "middle version" of ten years ago or so.

I'll spare you blow-by-blow accounts of rides. Besides, I'm so tired that the room is spinning around me. Sleep, must have sleep.

Up and At 'Em

I was up just after 7 so I could answer the inevitable e-mail (a smaller amount this morning, and mostly from people who are already at the con) and let Lisa sleep. She drank a Coke at dinner and therefore was wired up enough to not get to bed until after I did. I think I fell asleep about thirty seconds after my head hit the pillow.

Anyway, we're off to California Adventure in a little while. I'd rather stay the whole day, but we have social and meeting commitments this evening. Among other things, I may, if I can connect up with them, meet up with Vince and Colin and go over what we'll be doing for tomorrow's Opening Ceremonies.

As with yesterday at Disneyland, I'll be wearing a white polo shirt with the WSFS logo, along with a brown broad-brimmed hat. I expect to see a fair number of fans today.
