Food, Gifts & Photos

October 26th, 2005

Might as well write another entry while Joe watches the World Series. I’ll probably watch in a bit too, but I find it boring when no one has scored yet. Last night’s game was crazy. I went to bed at midnight but Joe stayed up til 2:30 am EST to watch it all. Sox won, of course!

So, did I mention yet that I am tired of eating out already? I will be happy to be making my own food once we get back home. We had stuffed pizza from Giordano’s tonight and it doesn’t compete with Gino’s East, that’s for sure. Monday night we had some really good steak at a place called Longhorn though. The night before that we ate at a place called Western Sizzlin which sucked, and then Sizzler last night which is always good. I just love their malibu chicken. They decided to forgo offering their salad bar as an add-on to a meal, so it now comes with it automatically. The meals went up in price a few dollars too, but the food was still good. Even with all the eating out, we’re not hitting even close to the $75/day food budget I made out. We get breakfast free at the hotel, grab lunch for less than $15 at the parks, and dinner is usually under $25.

That’s good since I forgot to budget for souveniers and we’ve already spent $150. Thank goodness for the Visa gift card everyone pooled together to get me at work for the bridal shower they threw me on Thursday! We didn’t even go crazy with the souveniers either; just some magnets, a Mickey t-shirt for Joe and myself, a couple of things for my co-workers and our families, and a really cute bobblehead set of Mickey and Minnie getting married.

I haven’t taken as many photos as I was anticipating because I am trying to enjoy the moment and not get caught up in picture taking. I haven’t used my 20D at all because it is much easier carrying my little A610 onto all the rides. I’ll probably be using the 20D when we go to SeaWorld and Kennedy Space Center if we decide to go. I used it to get a photo of a pelican outside our first hotel, but my telephoto lens is only 135mm so I didn’t get any great shots. I got a cute shot with my little camera of one of the many lizards that hang out all over the place though.

Oh and I’ve come to the conclusion that the British love Disney. Over the past few days we’ve heard lots of accents but the English win by far. It seems there are more English/British (is there a difference? I’m not sure) than Americans around here. Not that I mind at all, I just found it interesting.

    Glad you’re having a good time.

    English and British are not the same thing – England is just one part of Great Britain, along with Scotland and Wales. ;-)

    Ok so then I mean British because they had the same accent as my friend Andy who lives in England.

    *Waves to Andy who is probably reading this* :)

    Boo! I can’t believe the Sox won :(

    Yay! I can believe it: they rock! Some people have said it was a lucky win, but I don’t call a sweep luck, I call it skill.

    So why were you for the Astros if you’re in Colorado? Just curious.
