Matt's Family Trip - Day 3
Posted 15 February 2003 - 10:09 PM
We were then back on the road(again) and headed down south. We stopped for fuel at the last exit in Georgia to take advantage of prices, then stopped again at the Florida Welcome Center(another family tradition) to have the free orange juice sample and pick up some brochures(can we say "tourists?" ).
Back on the road, we drove for about 45 minutes before grabbing a quick lunch at Taco Bell in Jacksonville(I know, only the best places for this family ) and then declared the next stop would be our resort. 2 hours later, we pulled into our resort and finally relaxed. My personal mission was to get the internet up(yes, I'm a dork). By now it was around 6:00 so we drove to Splendid China in Kissimmee, for dinner. It was very empty there but the food is great(and expensive). We browsed a few of the shops and then headed back to our resort.
Once back, I challenged Naomi(my 11 year old sister) to a game of mini golf. She beat me by 2 strokes. My ego is deflated Speaking of ego, the girl I sent flowers to on valentines day didn't get them because no one was home when UPS came. Since it is a surprise, she wasn't expecting them and when I called today, she made no mention of them. I called 1800 Flowers and they told me what happened. Tomorrow I'll call her and just ask her out. And to add to my female problems, Leslie called me, only to let me know that she wouldn't be meeting me because she claims she has no means of transportation. :roll: I'm deeply hurt :wink:
Concerning my molding of Naomi into a junior version of me, I spent most of today talking up MGM Studios to her and that RnR & ToT aren't that bad. My parents make it out like you're lucky to come out alive but I think she'll come with us in the end.
Tomorrow we'll be relaxing at the resort because it's supposed to be cloudy/rainy Monday is EPCOT and I made a dinner PS at the Japanese restaurant....I decided not to make a lunch PS at Morroco and just walk up and eat. Can't wait!

Don't worry about your sister, she'll turn into a MGM Junkie in no time. My sister is 16 and loves RnR and ToT so your sister will come around
Oh, and I couldn't help but laugh at your Waffle House bit. I have about 4 or 5 within 7 miles of my house. :roll:

Be glad I have no means of transportation. Otherwise, you wouldn't make it to the parks tomorrow
And I pity Naomi. If she's smart, she'll save herself from the imminent torture. My advice to her is: Run while you still can!
