Ramblings of a Mad Piggie

Wednesday, June 20, 2007


It's been forever and I have to write in this or I'm gonna stop.

So...let's go back to the weekend of the 8th.

Oldest sis & hubby, neice, Gma and me and the girl went to Disneyland for neices' graduation present.
We went to dinner at REd Robin and then off to downtown Disney for the night. Tesla was playing at the House of Blues!! Didn't go though. I like the atmo at downtown. I could totally people watch there. Which in part we did. Red Robin and walkie walkie don't mixie.

The next day, we were early to start the day at Disneyland. We arrived at the gates by 8:20 or so I beleive.
And let the walking begin!!
Holy shit...I've forgotten how long its been since D world. I was 4 yrs younger and about 35 lbs lighter than last time.

Very first ride....Space Mtn. Now, I luv roller coasters or at least i did. It's been awhile since I last went on one...oh say 1995 or so?. A roller coaster that loops around and around and around first thing in the am was not such a bright idea. Needless to say, after that ride I didn't want to go to Tower of Terror with big sis.
We did something better....we began the Food-land part of the day.
Big sis hubby went and got us a chili dog, some chips and water and we sat down on the sidewalk and waited for the ride to be over. After that we went and hit up the Mission Tortilla factory to get a free tortilla. Next stop...PotRoast-Land , ice-cream-Land, Popcorn-land and Chimichanga-Land. IN between the food-lands, we did actually get on some rides.
One of them was the haunted mansion......
NOw anyone who's gone on this ride, knows its dark in there. A person with RP, doesn't stand a chance in there.
So , what do I do? I'm about ready to get off the tram into one of the buggies and I missed the chair completely and stood on the tarmac in between the two buggies. The nice disney employee came running and grabbed me in time to not get my foot chopped off by the moving floor. Wonderful.

We got there in the morning and left at 12:15....!!
Needless to say, we were tired and sore.
Well worth it though. We all had a blast.

Niece R graduated last night. She was soooo pretty in her dress and her hair and that coat....oopps line from a movie. Her hair was perfect except for the STRIP!!! but if you looked around all the girls were pretty much the same. Hair up with tendrils or strips hanging in their face, spaghetti strap dresses and shawls. I liked the ceremony even though mom kept getting mad that I was clapping for every single person. Hey...."no child shall be left behind" damn it. I'm gonna clap for every student they had whether they could hear me or not. At this school, you could actually walk up and take pictures of your child graduating. For my kids, they're on a football field and your in bleachers and you can make out their faces with binoculars. Sucks.
Afterwards, we went to sis's house for cake and cough syrup punch. My tummy hurt all night.
All in all it was perfect. We were all soo proud. Another graduate down. From here on out, it will be a graduation every year up until 2014 or some shit like that.

tAKE mE ouT tO tHE bALLGAME...

yEP...It's that time again.
Softball has started.
Tonight was the girls first game. This year the coachs decided to put her pitcher for the first round of batters, so that she can get a feel of the game for next year. She'll be pitcher then. Our ace of a pitcher is graduating and will not be able to play. She's something. I'll have to get big sis to video and link her on this thing. Very very very good for a 13 yr old. The girl is nowhere near her, but with practice, she'll be good.
The Spartans...yeah, I named them after seeing 300 cause it was such a kick ass movie that I loved just yelling out SPARTANS!!!....won. 7-0.

Tomorrow is R's graduation!!!
Can't wait to see the shoes!
