  • Mon, 14:09: Change in weather forecast--now looking like light rain all day. Regretting decision to rely on cheap ponchos instead of rain jacket.
  • Mon, 14:11: Fitbit report: 22,855 steps yesterday, 10.7 miles. My usual slothful level is 3-4k steps.
  • Mon, 15:07: W rain prediction am moving leisurely. Bfast at The Mara was biscuit, scr egg, bacon a la carte. Plenty to eat, cheaper than Bounty Platter
  • Mon, 15:08: Off to MK. But if it's too crazy w parade taping will do gingerbread and/or Epcot.
  • Mon, 16:31: TV taping "Let it go" in front of castle w singer, backup choir. In light rain. Is rain better than sun for Frozen backdrop in FL?
  • Mon, 16:32: Slow getting here fr AKL, crowd for MK gathered while 4 AK busses came. Did made my Mine Train FP window.
  • Mon, 16:41: Note to self: light mist intensifies on even a low intensity coaster.
  • Mon, 17:19: Trading Post pin board is Holiday Hamm. Doesn't have a very well filled lanyard though.
  • Mon, 17:52: Best Jungle Cruise skipper I've had in a while, doing a nice job w the Jingle Cruise material.
  • Mon, 18:18: #frozengingerbread Elsa. And they have the pin--apparently made 5x last years run.
  • Mon, 18:23: Will take a break from rain and monorail to Grand Floridian. Got rather damp walking to Contemp fr MK.
  • Mon, 19:14: GF gingerbread house impressive as always, though to my eyes it's about the same as the last few. I don't have an eye for detail changes.
  • Mon, 19:15: Got GF gingerbread pins. And a gingerbread Mickey w chocolate ears for a snack.
  • Mon, 19:16: Monorail to MK and will bus to AKL.
  • Mon, 20:07: Back at Jambo House after quick stop at Kidani (no AKL Xmas pins there either) in time to trade w King Pin.
  • Mon, 21:19: Good trade with King Pin--he had a Kevin pin! Then traded with other guests for a Minnie MagicBand to finish my set of those.
  • Mon, 21:21: Awesome CM Mary L. who I chatted with last night brought one of the pins I really wanted to trade with me. Really sweet, real Disney class.
  • Mon, 21:28: Back to room for a break, made hot tea and out to balcony w gingerbread cookie for snack. Antelopes front and center. Zebra. Cranes again.
  • Mon, 21:30: Must go to overlook at lobby and find CM for antelope ID assistance. In-room guide not helping with the current bunch. Except the Tommies.
  • Mon, 21:38: Like this one. Was being harassed by the Tommies and a zebra for a while.
  • Mon, 21:39: And this group.
  • Mon, 21:41: Not an African species. :)
  • Mon, 21:45: Shared monorail car from GF to MK with bride, groom, and photographer doing wedding shoot. Bride leaning on groom, dress nicely displayed.
  • Mon, 22:48: Antelope ID: fuzzy guy is a waterbuck, field mark is white circle on rump I'd missed noticing. Herd of reddish-brown ones are impala.
  • Tue, 02:00: Dinner at Jiko, decided to try the oak grilled filet with the off-menu mac and cheese that's been their signature dish for a while.
  • Tue, 02:01: Had a 25+ minute wait for my table, not an auspicious start.
  • Tue, 02:26: Filet was marvelous, cooked just to my requested medium rare. Will finish with Ghanaian chocolate/Kenyan coffee pot du creme, almond cream.
  • Tue, 04:19: Fuzzy pic of steak at Jiko--it's really low light in there, hard to get a good shot.
  • Tue, 04:21: The pot du creme. In background are a lagniappe, Tanzanian chocolate crinkle cookies with pistachios.
  • Tue, 04:23: Pot du creme was more firm mousse texture than pot du creme, flavor was great nonetheless. Cookies also excellent, must get recipe.
  • Tue, 04:31: Back at room, pulled back on patio by crane calling. AKL keeps 'moonlight' lighting on savannah so can see the animals moving around.
  • Tue, 04:32: Waterbuck's ring-on-rump visible now I know to look, Thompson's gazelle, maybe impala in a group under the dim to be sure.
  • Tue, 04:34: Stopped in gift shop before dinner to give CM Mary a Figment pin in thanks for the pin she traded me from her own collection....
  • Tue, 04:36: ...She'd been able to buy a returned one that afternoon, so we both have a copy. Good deed rewarded!
  • Tue, 05:00: FitBit report: 12,199, 5.45 miles. Rain and afternoon animal-watching kept it down. Much shorter walk fr MK to Contemp than DHS to Epcot!

    My first-generation iPad, that is. It slipped out of my hands and landed face-down on the tile floor--the glass is in pieces. It does still turn on,…

    First repair, of sorts: after returning from Ohio, my 3G connection didn't work. I first attributed this to poor AT&T connections, but I was…

    Order of setup is driven by the age of my old system, not by desire. iPad reports it can't be used with Tiger (OSX 10.4.x), so will set up the iMac,…
