So many memories…the Jack Rabbit as my first roller coaster, dressing like the boyfriend du jour and walking around thinking we were so cute, taking the bus for Italian day and seeing what my grandmother would win from her day of Skee ball.

Great memories.

I had so much fun reading all the various favorites you all wrote about and I have learned two very important things:

1. I can get malt vinegar on my Potato Patch fries.

2. I must ride the Thunderbolt, at night, in the front row.

I’ll just make sure I hold my hearing aids into my head as we round the bends.

    Thunderbolt at night front row sounds good. Did Space Mountain at Disney in front car.. definitely a rush.. couldn’t see sh*t.

    KGC- Space Mountain isn’t quite so scary when you’re stuck sitting uphill, with the lights on, and you see the disco ball in the middle of the floor….

    I am devastated.

    I was already in line for Aero 360.

    That bitch, we’re THROUGH.

    I was meaning to ask about that: What the H is a “poke”? Is that people nagging you to be their “friend”? And where, exactly, do they “poke” you? Because … I’d be willing to do that nonvirtually (wink-wink) but first you should know I charge by the hour.
