Well, I'm back (sort of)... I just wanted to remotely capture a few things while at eBay live! in Orlando, Florida.

Yesterday, June 27th we saw Wierd Al play ebay live, live. Huh? In any case, I can die now, I've seen Wierd Al live and in person! I'll have more thoughts on ebay live later (assuming I remember to write stuff down).

Ok - so a few months ago, the wife took the girls (2 of em, 5 & 3) to Orlando for vacation. While there, the little one saw an Aurura and Prince Philip doll set where they were "getting married." She couldn't stop talking about it and Kaern was going to buy it for her birthday later in the year. Well, did you know that there are two types of Disney stores - the kind we all know and love in the local mall, and the other kind - the kind that apparently only exisit in Orlando. No catalog, no shared merchandise etc... So, here I am at ebay live in Orlando and I decide to go into this store and peek around. Sure enough, I see an Aurora/Philip doll set - but hey - they aren't getting married, it's only Aurora's 16th birthday!

Well hell!

So I call Karen and we decide not to buy it at that moment. The next morning, Karen asks Sydney about the doll and Syd somehow remembers that Aurora is wearing a BLUE dress and Philip has a RED CAPE on! Damn, for a 3 1/2 year old, she's on the stick.

So guess what... Daddy gets big points cause little Syd will be celebrating Aurora's birthday/wedding very soon!
