It's good to be king

I'm very excited.

On Saturday, Jeff and Carrie and I are going to King's Island! We're gonna ride roller coasters and show up early so we can get a spot for the new Italian Job ride. I'm hoping the ride is based on the movie because it actually sounds more like something you'd find at the Hustler store down the road. Anyway, the day promises to be full of fun and excitement regardless.

I haven't been to King's Island since sometime around 1988. Back then it wasn't owned by Paramount so all the rides didn't have cute little movie tie-ins. The first roller coaster I ever rode was the Racer. It's a small wooden coaster that doesn't look too intimidating and it marked the beginning of a long love affair with thrill rides. So Saturday's visit will also be a trip down memory lane. I just hope it doesn't give me motion sickness.

Oh Kelly, you and your fear of commitment. Is that an absolute yes, or just another maybe?

Bring along some cinnamon sticks!
They cure motion sickness and they
taste good! Chew them, but don't swallow the wood chip parts. They hurt!

Hey, Eileen - remember when I asked you today if you'd received any spam comments on your blog, and you said no?

... Yeah.

Man, even Ohio has a better amusement park than BC. In BC all we have is "Playland" which is basically what you'd walk through to get to the good rides at wonderland.

If spam gets to be a real problem with any of you, you can change your settings to require "word verification" - where you must type in the letters you see before you can leave a comment. This thwarts automated spammers, but not people who do it manually. If mine gets worse, I might do it and see if it helps.
