Let's have a black celebration

Now is the time to get yourself to a theme park. The weather is fine and the kids are BACK IN SCHOOL. Go now to take advantage of short wait times.

I took the kids to the last day of "Snoopy on ice or whatever" at Knotts. While I do give props to anyone that can put on a 30lb outfit and skate like the wind...I fell asleep, as did the Baby. Also, choreographing Lucy and the football vs. Charlie Brown to En Vogue's "Never Gonna Get It", I...uh...just do not condone. Maybe I was just waiting for the Iron Lotus, who knows.

While I have an annual pass, and the kids are, er, "free"* - we have the luxury of staying for a few hours and coming back next week if it's too crowded. Those who make the trek across country and come for their one family vacation, well, they aren't so lucky.

I am just advising you to make sure you plan well. Say for example you saved up all year to come here from the midwest, take your family to Disneyland, only to find out....IT'S GOTH DAY. That's right. The Happiest Place on Earth overtaken by the saddest people on earth. You know that Haunted Mansion ride musta been jam-packed.

*Free: Kids under 3 get into theme parks free. Let me just say that a friend of mine got her 6 year old daughter in by telling her to 'not speak' and 'sit on her legs' in the stroller. Hilarious. Nice way to set an example, but hey you know how much a one day ticket costs now? $73 big ones, baby.

Hmm. We're going through the 'Look you are two, never mind the three candles you've just had on your cake" speech for the third time.

Wow I never knew there was a designated Goth Day! I live near two fairly big amusement parks in Ohio and always see Goth kids sweating in their heavy black clothes and makeup. Great article!
