Character Breakfast! New York City!


Well, this is going to be a quickie as I am leaving for work in 20 mins and not quite ready. Me, last minute? Never....

On Thursday to celebrate becoming the fabulous age of 23 I'm dragging some folk to a character breakfast at a hotel close to Epcot. (The Beach Club, for those in the know.) I am REALLY looking forward to it as I have never been to a character breakfast before! It's an all-you-can-eat breakfast, (here's hoping for strawberries and cantelope!) featuring Goofy, Minnie, Chip and Dale and maybe some others. They walk around, pose for picture, sign autographs, etc. On Friday morning at 5:30 myself, two francaises and a japanese girl are chucking us on a cab to new York City! Mind you, the cab will take us only to the airport. We are relying on Continental Airlines to get us into Nifty Newark. I am soooo excitied for this trip! We are staying for three nights and pretty much have a full four days since we should be into New York City by noon on Friday and our flight doesn't leave Newark until 8:30ish on Monday night. I feel like I haven't been travelling in so long, and I can't even express how excited I am!

However, I have encountered a couple of wee problems. One, I'm cheap, but I'm willing to attack the bank account for this trip! Two, the cold. Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled that there will be snow and we can go skating and the Christmas stuff will be up, but when I came to Florida I really didn't prepare for the cold (we're talking below freezing!!!). I'm fine here, but I don't have a winter coat, mitts, a scarf, or appropriate footwear. Hmm. So, here comes the saving grace of the Epcot Costuming Department! As part of outdoor foods, I get issued a coat, hat, turtle neck and perhaps a scarf and a pair of mitts. Hey, it's cheaper than buying this stuff! Although I may buy a pair of mitts just to have as it does get a wee bit chilly here on some nights when we are outside for throw-outs.

Anyway, ten mintues to get ready for work... oops.
