Global warming – multiple earthquakes – lots of storms….

August 21, 2008

We were in Boma this evening & we know why all these things happen…

At least 2 of you reading this blog will recognise Paul – you should do, he’s helped us eat at Boma with you! Anyhow – we discovered a couple of useful things tonight:

  • drink coffee after dinner – it’s a concept similar to bed blocking, it stops the table being recycled and forcing Paul to work extra hours – we call it cover or table blocking
  • we now know why things like global warming, shrinking ice caps, fuel price rocketing, El Nino occur. Same-sex weddings! It’s so obvious – why didn’t we think of this sooner…….

When you make bookings at Boma, request the tables furthest from the entrance – I guarantee you quotes like ‘free Disney Dining Plan – that’ll bring in the quality’. Paul is a diamond!

And this blog isn’t indexed in any way, so folk can’t stumble across it (using Google for example) if we’ve not given them the address – so no worries about the wrong people seeing this post either!

It’s Official! Fay is a PAIN!

Fay has hung around too long now…

Had she been a hurricane at least she’d have left by now! Some places have had 24 inches of rain in the last 24 hours!

Our place isn’t one of them – it didn’t start to rain until about 1600hrs (local) today but my God when it did….

She will start to clear off tonight / tomorrow morning, when normal (Florida) service will be resumed – high 90’s temp, high 90’s humidity, 20-minutes thunderstorms in the afternoon. Weird rain here – like being in the shower, the puddles are really warm

Forget Bay Watch – we’re on Fay Watch!

Well folks….

One of the ‘fun’ parts of Disney in August is this is tropical storm and hurricane season…..We have survived a previous tropical storm (Ernesto last year) and we’ll find out tomorrow if this was a fluke as tropical storm Fay will roll over us some time during Tuesday…

Americans have been buying bottled water and batteries….. we’ve got 16 cans of Diet Coke and 3/4’s of a bottle of Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum. We’re ready!

If anyone wants to look for themselves – go to then click on the Hurricane Centre bit in the top right corner.

Nothing so common……

So – we get to Walt Disney World (WDW) and head into Epcot for dinner at Chefs de France – a fancy French restaurant. But we’re a little early so we take a walk and happen to pass the Champagne…. so we buy a glass for the Boss

Then she’s a little ‘relaxed’ – we haven’t eaten yet remember – and she decides that mere mortals may well have a ‘beer blanket’ but not for our Mosborough girl. It’s a ‘champagne pashmina’ keeping off the chill of the air con off our Sheffield lass…..

Trying Hard….

I give in….

Tried to get WordPress to work on our own ISP with our proper web site – failed miserably….. Hardly surprising, me being a cable-monkey, not a developer…

This will have to do for now.

Keep watching!
