Why am I such a dork?  
Today is an okay day so far. I've actually had cravings for grilled chicken (or shish taouk!) and a hamburger. I cannot have either of these things yet, but it seems promising that perhaps I may actually want food again someday. But that's not what this post is about.

So considering I have not felt that "with it" (for lack of a better way to put it), I have only been watching TV for the past week (while I was in the hospital I couldn't even do that). I couldn't imagine concentrating enough to even read - and those of you who know me are no doubt amazed by this, considering I normally cannot be seperated from my current book and read at least one a week. I think I may try to start reading today. But that's not what this post is about, either. Witness my amazing lack of ability to organize my thoughts.

No, this is about a couple of shows I just saw on the Travel channel - one on Disneyland and the Grand Californian Hotel and one on London. I watched them both and just wanted soooo badly to go. Even though it was completed before I moved away, I never went to California Adventure - I was always focused on Disneyland itself - but I really want to go on the rides and see the sights there. Any of you SoCal t00bs willing to put up with me me up sometime, maybe next year? I've got too many trips planned for this year already.

And London... *sigh* It just reminded me how much I long for England - and how much I don't understand why I feel that way - likely am just a looney. They showed the hostess of the show doing all the touristy things - seeing the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, taking a taxi tour, having a pint in a pub, drinking Pimm's and Lemonade in another pub, shopping in Harrod's, seeing Big Ben - and I don't care if they're horribly touristy, I want to do those things, too. And maybe next year I'll finally be able to do them. Finally be able to walk around aimlessly and stare up at buildings that have been there for more centuries than I can even imagine. So UK t00bs, maybe I will be coming to see you next year too.

It's good to have things to look forward to.
I feel: dorkydorky

*hopes hopes hopes*

Something for us UK t00bs to look forward to, too! We haven't had a good t00bage for ever such a long time...

It would be great to have you here! Perhaps by then I will have a spare bedroom (or even a sofabed!)!

Lonesome for a place I know...
Why does England call?

Are you familiar with that song, from everything but the girl?

And I'm amused you're watching the travel channel. While I nurse cate, which is a *lot* of the time, I've been watching h&g-tv and tlc's home improvement shows. I should try the travel channel a bit...

I stayed at the Grand Californian a few years ago. Absolutely AMAZING hotel, though pricey. What amazed me the most was that the walls are thick enough that I couldn't hear a thing from the family with three little kids in the room next to mine. When I asked one of the front desk workers about it, he told me that all the rooms were sound insulated for just that reason -- not perfectly, but enough to muffle just about anything that might disturb you.

As for California Adventure -- eh. I liked the California Scream Machine (*great* coaster*) and the Bugs Life and Muppet Movie shows, but that's about it. The Ferris Wheel was kind of neat, but it made me motion sick.
