My Future – from Spaceship Earth! [VIDEO]

At the end of the Spaceship Earth ride in Walt Disney World’s EPCOT theme park, you get to choose a bunch of options on the touch screen of your vehicle. After that a little movie plays based upon the options you picked. Then, when you disembark, you have the opportunity to email the video to anyone you want, including yourself.

I used this technology as a fun little “fortune teller” about my future employment, just to amuse myself. This is what came out.

No, I have no idea who the surfer dude is!

Just poking around, I found some video of Spaceship Earth while the fountain show was in progress – watery goodness, coming your way! SUBSCRIBERS: here comes another video!

Disney’s Ladies in RED

Disney’s Ladies in RED
Walt Disney World
Orlando, Florida

Rifling through my picture directories from the past 4 years or so, looking for suitable fodder for Ruby Tuesday (hosted at Work of the Poet by Mary/The Teach), I began to notice a pattern – Disney’s Ladies In RED!

First up is Disney’s most famous REDhead since carrot-topped Peter Pan – it’s Ariel, aka The Little Mermaid. Please notice that Ariel’s best friend, Sebastian the lobster, is also sportin’ da ruby hue.  😀   Photo taken at Disney-MGM Studios, oops I mean Disney’s Hollywood Studios – May 2005
  Here’s one of my favorites – it’s my girl Mulan, a true Disney hero, with her faithful guardian, Mushu. She’s BETTER than a Disney Princess; she saved all of China from the Huns! Someday, I will treat you all to my feminist rant in praise of Mulan’s shedding of the trappings of femininity. But not today. This was taken in EPCOT outside the China pavilion, which is pretty much entirely RED on the outside, February 2008.


It’s Minnie Mouse, all decked out for the Flower and Garden Festival, with Mickey by her side in equal RED splendor.  Now, you have to admit that they are both stylin’ to the max as topiaries! EPCOT, April 2004.


Here she is, the other strong female non-Princess Disney character. She’s Mary Poppins, and she’s practically perfect in every way, right down to her use of THE power color, RED! Taken during a parade at the Magic Kingdom, May 2005


“Shift yer cargo dearie, show them yer starboard side….”   It’s the very famous “We Wants The REDhead” from the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction in the Magic Kingdom.  Photo taken October 2005.

Well, there they are – my Disney Ladies in RED.   And there’s only one princess among them.  Hah!  I hope you enjoyed this Ruby Tuesday offering.  See ya real soon!

Colors of Long Island
Sky Out The Window I
photo taken October 27th, 2004
Long Island, New York

I was trawling through my photo archive, looking for a bunch of stuff I had scanned a few years back, and I came across a series of photos that I took in October 2004, while I was still living on Long Island.  This one, above, was serendipitiy.  I was working at my desk in the Suite @ Chez Bro, and I looked up and saw this scene out the window.  Wow!  So I grabbed the camera and flung open the window to get this shot.  I love the colors!

Wordless, Ruby Tuesday Edition! July 1st 2008

Can’t believe it is JULY already – woo hoo! Here’s a hibiscus I snapped somewhere in Florida in April of 2004 – that’s two whole years before I actually LIVED in Florida.

Hope everyone has an AWESOME day!

Deep Pink Roses from the 2008 Flower & Garden Festival

The Rose Walk in Epcot wasn’t as crazy-in-bloom as I’ve seen it in the past, but still offered some lovely blooms to gaze upon, sniff and photograph. Here are some of my faves amongst the deep pink blossoms.

OK, so I think we might be able to ALMOST call this last one “red” 😀

Rainbow Over “China”
EPCOT, Walt Disney World
Orlando, Florida
May 24th, 2008

Still sick. Haven’t been this sick in a LONG time. I just feel like crapola! But I have to go back to work today, with what shreds of vocal ability that remain. I’ll see if there are any meetings I can move to later in the week.

Enjoy the rainbow!

Moon over the Italian Pavilion, EPCOT
Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida
Saturday, February 16th 2008

What is is with me and the moon? I dunno! For those of you who have been there, I’ll tell you where I was standing. You know the courtyard, where the nekkid statue of King Triton holding the sea shell is? I’m standing there, so the moon is over the restaurant. I liked the way the branches looked, all feathery against the twilight blue sky (data on the original photo says 6:00 PM; those sunset shots I posted earlier in the week were taken at 6:08 PM, right after this one).

The Dolphin Has A Halo, Part II
taken from EPCOT
Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida
Here’s a closer view of yesterday’s shot. Left to right: “Morocco”, The Swan hotel, “France” (Eiffel Tower model), and The Dolphin hotel.

Even though the pretty tree branch “frame” is gone, we can now see the buildings in starker contrast against the sunset colors of the sky. What’s interesting to note is that The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin resorts are actually a lot further away than the other buildings, but because everything is in silhouette, you lose a dimension and therefore the sense of distance between the photographer and the buildings – and even the sense of distance between the buildings themselves. In fact, in this photo The Dolphin actually looks closer than France, but the reverse is true. It’s just that The Dolphin is a much bigger structure than the tower, so even though it is further away, it looks closer!

Moon over the China pavilion, EPCOT

I can never make photos of the moon look as cool as they do in person. Anyway, this is some detail from the top of the China pavilion; love these carvings, they’re so cool 🙂

When you walk into the China pavillion, you’re in a sort of a rotunda at the entryway – this is the ceiling of that rotunda.

Wordless, Tuesday Edition

Cayo Costa, Florida
Monday May 5th 2008

What a beautiful weekend we had for shelling and for the fellowship of friends! Sunday was spent on Sanibel shelling with Chris and Jon; we met up with Dale and Wayne on the beach late in the day. Yesterday (Monday) was spent adventuring on Pine Island Sound. The whole weekend was Sunny and warm, not a cloud in the blue, blue skies, and the water was that clear aquamarine color that only happens on the Gulf coast of Southwest Florida.

We traveled up to Cayo Costa for some shelling (got there before the tour boats, heh heh heh!), and then went to Barnacle Phil’s on North Captiva for lunch. While some of us were shelling, others went out for a little catch-and-release fishing. Between the fish and the shells, everyone had smiles on their faces.

I’ll be sorting through and posting more photos during the course of the week, and I’ve got a few video clips to share, too. For now, I hear the call of duty (you know, that thing I do to make money – that JOB thing, ugh!) 😀 Catch you later!
