If they fail to treat you like a Queen, remind them of that double indemity during a full moom.

Actually, they are all nice guys. I used to go out to the store (Wal-Mart) in the middle of the night and tell a cashier I'd never met (easy to do) that I heard they had male strippers and ask where were they in the store. I'd come upon the strippers (wax stripping, they all did floor maintenance) and applaud them for the job they were doing. They were big support when Shrek was so sick and helped me convince him to take better care of himself. And when we found out Shrek had bladder cancer and was in the hospital, they went and sat with him so I could go home and get some sleep, playing chauffeur so I didn't have to drive.

I just finished dinner, got my glass of wine and I am going to catch up on all the stuff going on around here.
Yes we did get the good park hopper!
We are staying at the coronado and have dining reservations at several places in parks and other resorts! I am excited like a kid right now, we should be there this afternoon!

Getting up before anyone else wakes up. Enjoying a cup of coffee & a muffin.

I'm waiting until I am allowed to have my first cup of coffee. It will be a double espresso allongé. 15 minutes down, 15 to go.

Tried to look up what espresso allongé is, but ran into a wall at it being described as being french, but not what it means.

What exactly is it. I've never heard of it. I know what espresso is of course. What does it mean when you add "allongé" to it?

It means it has been elongated. It's a term we have been using in Montreal for at least 30 years.

I make an espresso and then add two parts hot water. I like my "allongé" very long. In a cafe it's usually about 50/50 espresso/water, unless you say "very long". I love espresso, but the straight one is so intense that my poor taste buds are overwhelmed. This way I can taste subtle flavours. It also lasts longer.

Thanks for the explanation.
