Thanks for another great report Erik. I always look forward to the "Oddventures" from you two.

If you want to do "everything else" in Orlando, let the Oddventures be your guide!

I think it would be interesting to do the smaller Orlando attractions one day. I was thinking of going to the attractions brouchure stand in a hotel lobby. I would close my eyes and randomly grab 3 brochures. Whatever 3 brochures that I grabbed, I would visit those attractions. I may pick Disney or Universal, or I may choose Trainland and the Titanic Experience. Whatever I chose, I would go! :)

Not long ago, there was a man named Harry Osborn. He lived a happy life in a place called "Arkansas," until his dad went crazy and dropped some blond chick off a bridge. Vowing to restore honor to the family name, Harry put up a bunch of Christmas lights. But then the Supreme Court said, "Whaaa, you're using more electricity than the whole rest of the state! Whaaa!" But then Walt Disney World said, "Hey, we have a really boring area in one of our parks that you could put all your lights up in. Plus, you're dad works for us now anyway!"

This is not actually Harry's work. But it is a Christmas tree, and it is just outside of DHS.

This is a really nice picture of concrete, at night.

True story: According to Bob Geldof, people stand outside his house and sing "Do They Know It's Christmas" at him. This is known as "vigilante justice."

Apparently, Disney wouldn't give Harry the rights to use Mickey Mouse, so he had to make this guy up.

Great photos! Out of all the Christmas stuff at Disney, I like the Osborn Family Lights the best. Funny, I always though the lights were based on Ozzy Osborne.

I hope you find a ghetto Christmas decoration in town. The captions then would be most hilarious. :)

^^Florida is experiencing a nasty cold spell, right now. :cry:

I tried to experience this once, but the crowds freaked me out. I didn't even get halfway through, before I started clawing my way backward to get out of the mass of humanity.

I much prefered the Wine and Dine Half Marathon version. :lol:

I went to that back in 2003! Don't remember it though but I know it was there. They kept on adding new lights to the house every christmas or something and then the goverment told them to turn them off. But they're in a safe place now!
I quit my job at the helium factory last week...I refused to be spoken to in that tone!
