We're off  
What a long day. I'm so ready for this vacation. Spent the morning cleaning and preping the birds. Then I went out with Chris on two jobs that took a long time because of bad traffic. But it was fun. I got a chance to doodle a little bit too which was much needed. I had to tell myself to now worry about mistakes and making it perfct. I drew Sorath and Cope and they turned out pretty good for being done quickly with nothing specific in mind. I hope I have time to play my bass tonight. I had a dream last night of a riff. When I woke up I couldn't remember the fingering but kinda could still hum the tune. But as the day went on I even forgot that though I still have a feel for what position I was in. I hope I can still figure it out. But usually I don't like it when I get my ideas from my dreams be it for music or writing. It just feels like I didn't do it. I don't know why but that's the only way I can explain it. It feels like it came from somewhere else and not my brain. Very few things creative wise have come from my dreams and I've like or loved. One of those is Owen's middle name Fairfield. My dream said in a big booming voice, "HIS MIDDLE NAME MUST BE FAIRFIELD!" Wow, ok. Also that perfectly rounded out his three names being references to paleontolgists since that's the middle name of Henry Fairfield Osborn. I'm rambling. I'm very tired.

So the plan is get up early, check into the hotel, lounge around the hotel and stuff the fridge with food. Then head to Epcot late around 3pm and stay to watch the fireworks at closing. Check out the next day and spend the rest of it shopping at Downtown Disney or just driving around to other stores in Orlando on Sunday. Funny enough since I've been to Epcot so much recently I'm looking more forward to this hotel than anything else.

So we got home late, and I filled all the bowls for the birds so they'll be taken care of quickly in the morning. And I just finished some last minute clean up. I'm hoping to find time to stop by a post office tomorrow as well to send off some gifts to friends.

I still want a five string bass. I was listening to Kalmah today and really getting into it and want to play so many of their songs. I like the harder more challenging stuff. If I learn a song too fast I kind of lose respect for it. I've figured out most of Toby Keith's Courtesy of the Red White and Blue. Yes it's a country song but it rocks. Also I've been wanting to do a country song on purpose because of a video I watched and the comments pissed me off. This guy was playing a bass and I forget what song he was playing but he did a great job. But some moron insulted him and told him he was using the wrong bass for the song because he had a "jazz bass". WTF?! Since when are instruments restricted to a certain type of music. I wasn't aware of this rule. I told Chris about it and how dumb it was. Who care what kind of guitar he has as long as he sounds good. It could look like he got it at the dump but if it sounds great that's what counts. I was then infromed that there are these guitar "purists" out there that think certain kinds of guitars should only be used in certain styles. Still WTF? So since I own a metal guitar and despite metal being the main style I play I'm going to do something very different from metal just to piss off the purists. I'm gong to play a country song on my metal guitar. AND I'm going to mention it before I play the song.

Anyway, new icon for Epcot. I deleted some of my icons that I never to seldom use. I can use this one whenever I go to a Disney park, though I wish it was just of the Epcot ball. Oh and I found out something funny about packing for a one night trip. You can't pack for a short vacation like that because almost everything you're wearing and using you wear that morning. So the only thing I packed were the shirts for Sunday. Even toothbrush, contact solutions, hair clips. All that stuff can't go into the bag until tomorrow. Even if I brush my teeth now I still have to brush in the morning so the stupid luggage can't be packed until tomorrow. Weird! I've traveled a lot in my life but this is a first for me. I knew about the bathroom stuff but yeah this is a first hehe.

I don't know if I'll have internet access. I might take my old laptop. I haven't decided yet. Will figure that out in the morning when I'm done packing. If I don't have internet access then this is the last thing I'm doing online today and I'll be back Sunday night. Hold down the fort while I'm gone. I won't be able to respond to stuff, but I'll read when I come back and comment on your next posts. Will miss you all but I know this will be great. I'll take lots of pics and video so I'll have an extensive post/s when I return.
