I’m getting ready for a business trip to Orlando again. It’s been almost a year since my last one but I remember it like it was yesterday, I had a blast. My co-workers who didn’t go with me are skeptical about how much fun you can really have in Orlando, for some reason they think […]

I went to see “Cars” this weekend – TWICE! To everyone who got taken in by that lousy teaser trailer, boy did you miss out. The entire theatre busted a gut through the whole thing. There was also some weird guy a few seats down who was just laughing whether it was funny or not. […]

It’s the weekend and I don’t know about you but we’re going to see “Cars”! This movie was hurt by some pretty bad teaser trailers, I think. Advance word on it from people who have seen it has been very positive, yet I can’t get anyone I konw excited about going. Everyone was affected by […]

I’m back from one of the most productive business trips I’ve ever been on. It was so productive that my supervisor gave me and the go-getter that I supervise a day off to enjoy the parks. Jason had never been to Disney World before so we spent the day at the Magic Kingdom, and that […]

I have not taken an extended, non-work-related vacation in several years. I’ve been working now at Trendwest about two years and I’ve banked some time off hours, so starting this Friday the artist and I will be on our way to Florida to enjoy Disney World with the entire family. That means all parents, two […]
