Disney World Thoughts Part 2: Magic Kingdom

The Magic Kingdom is the type of park that is modeled after the original Disneyland design and layout. People will often refer to Disneyland Paris, Tokyo Disneyland, Hong Kong Disneyland, Disneyland itself and the Magic Kingdom in Disney World as “Magic Kingdom” parks. They have a Main Street, a hub, castle, and several themed lands.

The Magic Kingdom in Disney World is the best park of the 4 main theme parks at the resort. I am going to talk about this park and my thoughts on it land by land.

That’s so GAY!

Well, it has been a long time since I have posted an update on here, so I thought that I would take this time to do that now.

First off, today the Supreme Court of the United States (or SCOTUS) ruled that DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act) and Prop 8 were unconstitutional. This is awesome news if you are someone in the LGBT community. This is particularly important for me as there is someone who down the road I would like to marry and is also a male.

Blogging and Updates

Hey, look at that! I’m updating my blog again and it hasn’t been forever! Someone that I just recently pointed to my site for information that I posted previously thought it was cool that I had this site where I posted a lot of stuff about my life. I have to agree that I do like looking back on things that I have posted here to see how I was like and what I was thinking at the time.

It got me thinking of what started this all back in October, 2002. At the time, I had just met Beth while working at the theatre and she turned me on to LiveJournal. In fact, a lot of this blog is from back in the day when I was posting frequently on LiveJournal. I would like to get back to posting as frequently as I did back then.

Well. here I am again, updating my blog after a number of months of nothing. I really do want to update more often. If you look back in my history, I think that almost every post that I make after not blogging for a while commits to blogging again more regularly. Anyway…

I haven’t really talked about what it has been like at the new house. We have lived here for a little over a year now and I quite like it. It is conveniently located on the bus route for me to get to work if I need it and the same route goes up to Onalaska and the mall. It has come in handy a number of times since moving in.

I was just sitting here in my room looking at Twitter and read a post from someone that I follow that was about exit signs at Disneyland. This got me thinking about Disneyland and how much has changed ever since the last time that I was there back in July, 2007. That means that it has been 3 years, 6 months and 16 days since I was there last. That is a long time for me not to have gone to Disneyland.

Part 3 of 3 explaining the last year!

In parts 1 and 2, I told the epic tale of how Teresa, Beth and I went to New York, Philadelphia and Washington DC. This, the third and final installment, I will finish up that trip, talk about our trip to Springfield, IL to see Lincoln’s Tomb and our latest trip to Saint Louis, MO.

So when we left Washington DC and Arlington National Cemetery, we headed out and followed the GPS to take us to Gettysburg! After a few hours (we had left Washington, DC in the late evening), we arrived in Gettysburg in the early night. We stopped at a gift shop there and purchased a couple of things. I got Kohl an Abraham Lincoln picture and I picked up a confederate flag and a “Betsy Ross” flag (the one with the circle of 13 stars). The confederate flag is constantly getting me in awkward situations, but that is another blog post.

Part 2 of 3 explaining the last year!

In part 1, I went over our trip to New York last summer, starting in Onalaska, WI, going through Chicago, Youngstown, Centralia and into New York. This time, I will continue our trip finishing up in New York and heading to Washington, DC, Gettysburg and finally back home. Next time, I will talk about our trip to Lincolns Tomb in Springfield, IL and then our latest trip to Saint Louis, MO and back.

After we left the waterfront, we passed a couple of old colonial type ships parked in the harbor. It was starting to drizzle again and so we headed for the subway. We got to the subway and took the train to Grand Central Station where we walked around and basked in its enormous glory.

Part 1 of 3 explaining the last year!

Hello again blog. I haven’t updated you in a while and I feel that I really need to, especially to talk about all the fun stuff that I have done this summer so far!

Actually, I am going to start about this time last year, as that is the last time that I updated my blog to talk about much of anything.

Last September, Teresa, Beth and I planned a trip to New York, Washington DC, Centralia, PA and a few places in-between. It was amazing. We left Onalaska and traveled through Chicago and had our first stop in Youngstown, OH. While there, we stopped by the college and found Beth’s childhood home. It was pretty cool.
