    Busch Gardens Tampa: The Dark Continent too? *Has the best memories from that place, especially the log flume ride called the Tanganyika Tidal Falls. Hopefully that's still there. That's the one ride where the only dry spot was at the exit bridge beneath the plexiglass window. You'd stand there watching the current vehicle come splashing down, which'd splatter the entire outer window wall. But even better was when you stood outside that window-protected bridge exit... Waiting... To get soaked in the water from the after-splash.

    *Must go to Universal Studios... HP World! ! !

    Wow, Busch Gardens. Haven't been there in years. I grew up in Tampa, and every summer we'd pack a bunch of people up and go to Adventure Island, the water park run by Busch Gardens...probably a little cool in the water for you to consider it now, though...but IF it's open and you go, I highly recommend the waterslides, especially the one called "Barracuda" -- lots of breakneck twists. Even more fun after dark when they turn on lights in the slide tunnels!

    Smiling today because last night I came up with a very silly cartoon idea for the show "Alcatraz", and last night and today drew it and posted it to DA...and to a certain wine proprietor/actor whom I have a bit of a crush on. Dunno if I'll hear anything back about it, but it was terribly fun to draw!

    Someone reviewed "Growing Together" on fanfiction.net. What this person was impressed by was, of all things, my use of Swedish. It had been rubbing her the wrong way that the Swedish Chef spoke neither English or Swedish. She, being a Swede, was in a position to notice. I'd been sneaking little bits of real Swedish into the Chef's dialogue, courtesy of Google Translator, but I never expected anyone to spot it, much less be impressed.

    A friend of mine said he found a sing-a-long video for Muppet Treasure Island if I wanted it. I didn't even know they made one of those.

    Neat! It's always fun to find stuff like that (if only I could find Big Bird again)
    And thanks, though I told him I probably wouldn't watch it, I just thought it was a cool find.

    I wrote a spit-take into a story today. I don't know why, but I love spit-takes, and there's not much opportunity for them in text stories.

    Throwin' a frisbee with friends. The weather's nice enough for it and there's nothing like spending time with friends (so I'm told).

    I am happy that I finally finished a first chapter for my fanfiction, 600. Years. And my profile avatar is what my main character, Midnight, looks like :)

    Underwater Cowboy found work! :D It's in Ontario, but it's work, and he's really happy about this (as am I, though I was sad to see him go).

    Also, one final down, four more to go. Within a week, I will have written my last final exam at Ye Local College. :D
