I’m officially putting off the transcript until I’m at least back in Washington. I feel bad, but between being sick and having a really long day tomorrow and having two episodes (one of which is an hour and a half long) released tonight, I just don’t think I have it in me to do it tonight. Instead I’m just going to go to bed I think and hope that I haven’t made too many people angry.
Seriously considering just making a post on cecilspeaks saying that the transcript will have to wait. Not sure I’ve got it in me tonight (especially with such a long day coming up tomorrow).
I decided that since I’m staying up late transcribing (once the episode comes out, which should be in a few minutes), I may as well go next door to the All Star Sports Resort and get myself a pizza (which takes two meal credits, so now I’m down to 7 meals and 7 snacks).
I didn’t expect it to take over an hour.
But others had it worse — during the 45-minute wait in line, they took pasta off the menu entirely. People who had waited for over a half an hour got out of line to get in the burger line instead (which stinks for them, because they still actually had pasta when I got to the front of the line, though they were close to running out — and I heard someone at the burger station say that they were out of cheese for the burgers).
But now I’ve got pizza to transcribe with. And the baseball 1-game Wild Card playoff that I figured I’d missed the end of is still going, tied 7-7 in the eleventh inning (it was 7-3 Oakland in the 7th inning when I left, but apparently Kansas City isn’t ready to give up on their first postseason appearance in 29 years yet).
Oh, also my mom gave me some of her medication that her doctor gave her after she had polyps removed from her nose. It stops the mucus from forming/building up and it works wonders. That may make my last day and a half here much nicer than it otherwise would have been (it hasn’t cured me or anything, but it’s a vast improvement over how I felt/how many kleenex I was going through a couple of hours ago).
Well, crap. Apparently it’s a regular episode plus a separate crossover episode with the Thrilling Adventure Hour that’s being released on BandCamp (probably for pay-what-you-want, minimum $1 — that’s how their other two BandCamp releases have been).
I’m just transcribing the regular Episode 55 (if I don’t fall asleep first). The 90-minute crossover show will just have to wait until someone asks me for it (and buys it for me if I’m right about it costing money). And for when I’m home. That’s going to take at least four hours to transcribe, and there’s just no way I’m doing that before going to Epcot tomorrow.

Today’s pics are uploading now (there are only five today since I didn’t do much, so it won’t take long). The pic of the pool is hazy because I had just left the 68º room and walked there in 80+º weather so the camera lens apparently fogged up. Oh well. Maybe I’ll try to get the Three Caballeros tomorrow.
There’s just nothing like going down for a drink refill and hearing the fireworks from Illuminations at Epcot in the distance.
i’m honestly one of those people that are just there like yeah i have friends and people talk to me but i’m nobody’s favorite person and nobody looks forward to talking to me everyday or anything and it sucks
Bonus: Name one event that happened that year.
Reagan, and Return of the Jedi came out in theaters.
Trudeau, and uhhh, AC/DC got together, and Tolkien died.
George H.W. Bush (wah) and The Simpsons aired for the first time plus Mandela was relased from prison. Holla
Ronald Reagan (USA), Margaret Thatcher (UK), and Indira Gandhi (India) when I was born.
The Falklands War… yeah… and E.T came out, lol.
Brian Mulroney (Canada)
Yuck. He is widely considered as the least likable PM we’ve had. And like, we like everyone. We love Trudeau and he was an actual asshole.
Also the Berlin Wall came down so yay!
I believe it was George H.W. Bush but I just remember Clinton growing up and watching his scandal at my Grandma’s house and was confused why seeing ladies underwear was bad.
Nixon, at least for another 6 months (ish) until he resigned. I don’t remember him, or Ford, or Carter. The first President I remember was Reagan.
Jimmy Carter. Also, Elvis died that year.
I was born in the Reagan years. The year they started, in fact.
Gerald Ford. America Sings opened at Disneyland, and was the location of the first Disneyland cast member fatality — just nine days after it opened to the public.
Back at the hotel for a while. Housekeeping’s come and gone, and I could use some time to just sit.

Asked my roommate who works there and she said 63 seconds. We were both wrong.
I can buy that time. =)
Psst Barn is 90 seconds long.
I could buy 60, but not 90. My video of the attraction is just 53 seconds long, including the lift hill. It may have a 90 second cycle time (from dispatching a train until the next time the same train is dispatched), but the ride itself is definitely not that long.
All three of us in my room are sick now (I can’t take all the credit — stepdad got it first and has sounded awful for the past several nights). Apparently they got caught in a downpour at Magic Kingdom last night after I’d left (if it was the same as the downpour that fell at the hotel last night, it was still nothing like the one at Hollywood Studios a couple nights ago).
But last night I stuffed a towel into my shoes and it mostly dried them off, so I can wear them again! Much more comfortable than flip-flops. But today’s an off day so no park for me — I’ll just find some cool place to eat or something and generally probably stick fairly close so I can actually rest once housekeeping is done. Tomorrow Epcot is open until 11:00 with the Extra Magic Hours, so we’ll be finishing off the trip with a bang (and maybe a collapse when my legs give out)!
I can’t believe we have to go home in two days. I’m exhausted, but being exhausted here is better than being bored at home.
Today’s WDW pics are up. Goodnight, friends.
